-->--'''[[ByThePowerOfGreyskull Morphing calls]]''', ''Power Rangers Ninja Storm''

The 11th season of ''Franchise/PowerRangers'', adapted from ''Series/NinpuuSentaiHurricaneger''. First season produced after production was sold to Village Roadshow by a funny coincidence, former ''[[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers MMPR]]-[[Series/PowerRangersTurbo Turbo]]'' producers and writers Doug Sloan, Ann Austen and Jackie Marchand worked for Disney at the time, and asked if they could helm this season. Disney agreed, and the result was an AffectionateParody that loved its [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]].

Evil, GenreSavvy ninja Lothor wants to conquer the Earth, and his first step is to eliminate all of the secret ninja academies that would rise up to stop him. Unfortunately for him, three of the students at the Wind Ninja Academy decided to be Good Samaritans that day and were fixing some old couple's car instead of going to class. Shane, Tori and Dustin are widely recognized as the worst students in the school, despite potential and good intentions, but now they're our only hope. Assisted by their Sensei, who has been turned into a guinea pig by Lothor, and his snarky son Cam, they have a long way to go.

Lothor soon decides to fight fire with fire, and convinces a pair of adoptive brothers from a rival academy that Sensei was responsible for the deaths of their parents. Eventually, things are sorted out and they become the Navy and Crimson Thunder Rangers. And even after that, Cam, fed up with his father's refusal to train him as a ninja and the others underestimating him because of it, travels back into the past, obtains a mysterious artifact from his mother, and becomes a more traditional SixthRanger, the Green Samurai Ranger. Things come to a head as Lothor continues to sacrifice minion after minion, general after general, and the Wind Rangers begin to understand that their presence in this fight isn't as much of an accident as they might have thought.

As stated above, Ninja Storm was an AffectionateParody, and {{lampshaded}} every trope and gimmick Power Rangers had invented. Regardless on whether or not you found the jokes funny, it still had a few standout elements here and there. Particular note goes to Cam, who, despite being in a less popular series, rose to be in almost as many (if not as many) Power Ranger fan theories as Andros and Tommy.

First series of Power Rangers to: 1) have only one girl, 2) switch the Blue and Yellow Rangers' genders, 3) begin with three Rangers, then add two, then add one more, and 4) be filmed in UsefulNotes/NewZealand ([[BannedInChina Where it was frustratingly banned from being broadcast due to the standards of violence]]).

This season unfortunately broke the chain of the [[ReunionShow last season team up episode]] started in ''[[Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy Lost Galaxy]]'', possibly due to the move to New Zealand as well as budget and union issues. Next season would continue the trend, however.

''Ninja Storm'' is considered a divisive season. For many years a fan favorite due to its comedic atmosphere and cool unmorphed fight scenes, it's been unseated by later, more serious seasons. Look no further than BigBad Lothor for a demonstration: half the fandom thinks he's hilarious, GenreSavvy, and a terrific villain for his final arc gambit, while the other half thinks he's a lame, bumbling idiot who can't stand up next to the likes of Mesogog.

Succeeded by ''Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder''.

Not to be confused with the ''Manga/{{Naruto}} Shippuden: [[NarutoShippudenUltimateNinjaStorm2 Ultimate Ninja]] [[NarutoShippudenUltimateNinjaStormGenerations Storm]]'' games.

** TransformingMecha: the Samurai Star
* ItRunsOnNonsensoleum

** NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: Grant Macfarland as Lothor, [[spoiler: less so as Sensei Kanoi]].

[[folder: with [[Instant Awesome Just Add Ninja NINJAS ]]
... [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers AGAIN]]!]]
* {{Thememobile}}:

!!This subseries contains examples of:

* ActingForTwo: Grant [=McFarland=] as Sensei and Lothor
** Jason Chan as Cam and Cyber-Cam.
* AdaptedOut: Shurikenger had a mild baseball theme; his morpher was a ball and his sheathed sword was like a bat. This motif was taken out of ''Ninja Storm'' because the makers presumably didn't want kids imitating the show to [[BatterUp smack each other with baseball bats]].
* AffectionateParody[=/=]SelfParody
* AffablyEvil: Lothor.
* AIIsACrapshoot: After becoming a Ranger, Cam creates a virtual copy of himself to take over as MissionControl. Cyber-Cam ties Real-Cam up before his programming gets fixed.
* ArbitrarySkepticism: Tori's infamous line in the first episode, implying that Power Rangers are merely comic book characters. The line was meant to play the trope straight, but some fans thought it indicated that continuity was being rebooted. References to ''Ninja Storm'' next season were meant to correct this misconception.
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: When Marah introduces Beevil:
-->'''Beevil:''' I'm wanted on 12 planets for theft, forgery, conspiracy, destruction of property-
-->'''Marah:''' Don't forget littering!
-->'''Lothor:''' Littering? The most underrated of intergalactic crimes! I'm impressed!
* AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence: Skyla the Karmanian in "Shane's Karma"
* AscendedFanboy: Dustin, somewhat. He was a big Power Rangers fan and the only one to believe in them before becoming one
* BBCQuarry: One of the bigger offenders in ''Rangers'' history. Lampshaded, of course:
-->'''Cam:''' A quarry again? What is it, like a monster-con over there?
-->'''Shane:''' (in another episode) Not another rock quarry!
* BeachEpisode: Many episodes had scenes at the beach due to Tori being a surfer, but the "Shane's Karma" two-parter had a sub-plot devoted to the Rangers trying to get some R&R at the beach.
* BetterThanABareBulb: one of this installments's strongest points.
* BigRedButton: Cam has one in the center of his keyboard.
* BookEnds: The finale introduces three new characters so the season can end as it began, with three ninjas late for class.
** Extending into next season, the ''Dino Thunder'' crossover introduces the Wind Ninjas with them soundly defeating their students, contrasting their original introduction where they were on the receiving end of the asskicking.
* BoxingKangaroo: the MonsterOfTheWeek Boxing Bop-a-roo
* BrattyTeenageDaughter: Marah and Kapri are Bratty Teenage ''Nieces''.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: on occasion
** Lothor outright does this in one episode after a monster grows:
--->''(looks at the audience)'' "What did you expect? He wasn't going to get smaller."
** Not to mention when he's in a zord of his own and kicking the Rangers around:
--->'''Lothor''': "This is the most fun I've had all season!"
* BrickBreak: The Rangers try this in "The Samurai's Journey Part 1" - they all fail, and when Cam the non-Ranger does it succeeds they think it's a trick.
* BrokenAesop: When Sensei told Dustin not to use his abilities for trivial matters. Said trivial matter involved protecting a business that was basically being vandalised. In other words, "Don't use your abilities to stop crime."
* CainAndAbel: Kanoi and Kiya Watanabe, [[spoiler:otherwise known as the team's Sensei and TheSmartGuy SixthRanger's father, and Lothor, the GenreSavvy BigBad.]] Doubled as a LukeIAmYourFather for [[spoiler:Cam,]] as he was unaware of the relation. It ends up saving [[ThoseTwoBadGuys Marah & Kapri]] in the end, because [[spoiler:Cam is a hell of a lot more merciful than Uncle Lothor!]]
* CaveBehindTheFalls: Ninja Ops (though the falls are just a ninja-trick illusion)
* {{The Chosen Zero}}es:
-->'''Shane:''' So, what exactly does [the morpher] do?
-->'''Tori:''' Where's the switch?
-->'''Dustin:''' Does it have any games or what?
-->'''Cam:''' [[FacePalm Ladies and Gentlemen, the defenders of the galaxy.]]
** Done almost immediately afterword where Shane and Tori become the only power rangers who can't figure out how to morph on their first try even though Cam already told them what to do. It thus fell to Dustin to teach them...
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: And ''how''.
* ClimacticBattleResurrection: the finale. [[spoiler:Lothor's ressurected army versus the Rangers and the rescued Wind Academy students.]]
* ClosestThingWeGot: Tori, Shane, and Dustin. They're at the bottom of their class, but they're also the only ninjas not captured by Lothor.
* ConservationOfNinjutsu: The battle final.
* ContinuityNod: About every third or fourth episode has an offhand reference to something that happened earlier in the season.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: The more comical the villain seems, the more this applies - Lothor; Marah and Kapri; even Choobo demonstrated some serious skills when he fought the Rangers.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Arguably what made Lothor one of the most effective and memorable {{Big Bad}}s to date.
* DarkMagicalGirl: Marah & Kapri. It's strongly implied that they're not evil so much as desperate to win Uncle Lothor's approval. When Lothor [[spoiler: leaves them in his self-destructing base, Cam grudgingly saves them because, hey, they're not the only ones stuck with him as an uncle. They immediately pull a HeelFaceTurn and spend all their energy trying to impress their cousin instead--which definitely paid off in the ReunionShow.]]
* DatingCatwoman: Dustin and Marah in "All About Beevil".
* DeadpanSnarker: Cam.
* TheDulcineaEffect: Shane with Skyla in "Shane's Karma"
* EmbarrassingFirstName: Dustin's given name is Waldo.
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: Quite a bit, especially with the Wind Morphers and things involving the Lion and Samurai Star zords.
* EvilSoundsDeep: The Thunder Rangers, pre-HeelFaceTurn.
* ExtremeSportExcusePlot Sort of. The Rangers, save Cam, were extreme athletes when not doing ninja stuff; and the sports got highlighted often but were rarely involved in the battles with Lothor.
* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: A cyborg villain suffer melting at the hands of another, treacherous villain. His half-slagged body is seen in a rare exception to PR's EverythingFades tendency. His executioner [[BondOneLiner quips]] that he was "having a little meltdown".
** One that wasn't the death itself, but... the monster of the week was a pig. The Rangers beat him, he goes giant, they beat him again, he explodes... and then we see [[BigBad Lothor]] eating his barbecued remains; the other villains were as disgusted as should be expected.
* FastballSpecial: Shane and Dustin in "Thunder Strangers pt. 3"
* FeminineWomenCanCook: The inverse is used in "I Love Lothor"; Cam attends a sports cooking class with Tori and the guys poke fun at him for such a girly activity - until they see all the girls in the class.
* FreakyFridayFlip: Sensei and Shane, then Sensei and Dustin in "Sensei Switcheroo"
* FlungClothing
* GenreSavvy: Lothor is throughout the series but notably in "Sensei Switcheroo" when Marah and Kapri ask what to do after the monster of the week is defeated small. "How long have you been working here? You make him big, okay? They blow them up and we make them big, it happens everytime. How could you not get that part?"
* GirlWatching: "Thunder Strangers, Part 1" uses the common subversion that Shane and Dustin only ''look'' like they're ogling women (they're really ogling Cam's motorcycle designs).
** GettingCrapPastTheRadar: When Cam catches them (before finding out they're looking at bikes), his first reaction is, "I hope you're not doing anything illegal."
* GroupieBrigade: The Rangers nearly get trampled by a Lothor-obsessed one in "I Love Lothor".
* HardLight: The Ninja Rangers get a lot of mileage out of holographic constructs, especially with the zords: they're used to disguise the zord summoning points, "split" the megazord for its standard FinishingMove, and even summon a tidal wave for the dolphin zord. Cyber-Cam is another prominent example.
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: Thunder Rangers early on.
* HeirToTheDojo: Played with, as Sensei's son Cam was specifically denied ninja training. Hence the handwave of him being a samurai while Shurikenger was explicitly "Ninja of Ninja".
* HorribleCampingTrip: In "General Deception". To quote Hunter, "I feel like the cast of ''Series/{{Survivor}}''."
* HourOfPower: the Ninja Megazord's Lightning Mode, limited to one minute (at least the first time)
** MagicCountdown
* HurricaneOfPuns: The Rangers make them all the time in battle. (Um, "Hurricane" pun not intended.)
* HypercompetentSidekick: Zurgane does most of the work in finding aliens for Lothor to sic on the Rangers, and is the most tactically-minded of the villains. Given his boss, though, this isn't always appreciated.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: Cam spends the first half of the series resentful that he isn't a Ranger.
* InsufferableGenius: Cam. However, before he becomes a Ranger, he has legitimate complaints as to why he's held back and after he becomes one he's much more of an equal in the group.
* ItsQuietTooQuiet: Used in the premiere as the Rangers approach the academy.
* KeepAway: Wind Rangers vs. Thunder Rangers over Sensei in a hamster ball, uh, I mean force field; in "Thunder Strangers Part 3".
* LampshadeHanging
* LateToTheTragedy: Tori, Shane, and Dustin in the premiere, leading to them being the ClosestThingWeGot.
* LeotardOfPower: Tori's Ranger suit is one of these with the usual MinidressOfPower attached, giving the appearance of the occasional PantyShot.
* LocalHangout: Storm Chargers, the sporting goods store where Dustin, Hunter, and Blake work.
* LostAesop: "All About Beevil". So is the lesson to trust people sometimes or not trust anyone?
* LovePotion: Used in "I Love Lothor". While MOTW Mr. Ratwell gets a number of civilians to love Lothor, Marah and Kapri try to get some attention from the Rangers but only make Cam and Blake fall in love with Tori.
* LukeIAmYourFather: Lothor is [[spoiler: Sensei's brother and Cam's uncle. Lucky for Lothor's nieces, Marah & Kapri, as Cam uses their relationship to justify saving their lives.]]
* MagicalSecurityCam: Given a handwave about surveillance drones.
* MagicMusic: the Lightning Riff Blaster, a guitar that can summon a Mammoth zord.
** Might intersect with ThePowerOfRock as well.
* MeaningfulName: ''Dust''in, whose elemental affinity is Earth.
** Also ''Sky''la the Karmanian, who gave her power to Shane, (whose power is ''air'') which included a flying Battlizer.
** And the techie named ''Cam''.
** Tori, whose element is water, is a surfer of ''tor''rential waves.
** Hunter is ''almost'' an anagram for ''thunder''.
* TheMillstone: The Rangers have the MonsterOfTheWeek nearly handled, but Cyber Cam distracts them by doing something random and results in Dustin and Tori getting turned into perfume by said monster
* MirrorUniverse: in "The Wild Wipeout"; somewhat subverted in that ItWasAllJustADream... maybe.
** with hints of MushroomSamba, being caused by the MonsterOfTheWeek's magic dust.
* MonsterOfTheWeek: Parodied in one episode. [[BigBad Lothor]] tries to send six giant monsters at once against the heroes, only for his device to fail citing a "memory error". His general informs him that they did not pay for the memory upgrade, so they can only enlarge one monster at a time. Lothor curses at this complaining that as future ruler of the world "''I need big monsters!'''" and settles for enlarging one and making the rest fight while small.
* MythologyGag: In "Thunder Strangers, Part 2", Tori's morpher is damaged and a monster tells her, "Guess it's not [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers morphin' time]] after all, is it?"
** In "Tongue and Cheek," Marah refers to the guys from [[Series/PowerRangersZeo Triforia]] as being [[LiteralSplitPersonality three times as cute]] than those from other worlds.
* {{Ninja}}
** HighlyVisibleNinja
** McNinja: The only one who's supposed to be Japanese is not a ninja, but a samurai.
** NinjaLog: Done with spare costumes most of the time, but at least once with actual logs (in "Nowhere To Grow").
** NinjaSchool
** WalkOnWater: Tori uses this ninja trick.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Lothor
* OpeningNarration:
-->"Deep in the mountains, secret ninja academies train our future protectors. Ancient scrolls told of three who would be chosen above the others, three who would become..." ''[cue theme music] Go! Power Rangers! Go! Ninja Storm!''
* PolarOppositeTwins: Cam and Cyber-Cam, by design: Cam wanted his copy to excel in fields he wished he himself was good at.
* ThePowerOfRock: The Lightning Riff Blaster, a weapon used to summon the Mighty Mammoth Zord. It's a Guitar/Blaster, and the Mammoth Zord is summoned with one awesome chord.
* PowerLimiter: Cam's weighted vest in Samurai Ranger form, which he removes when in Super Samurai Mode.
* ProjectedMan: Cyber-Cam
* RedShirtArmy: The Ninjas.
** [[spoiler: MenOfSherwood: In the Final Battle]]
* RhymesOnADime: Copybot from "Beauty and the Beach"
* RivalDojos: the Wind and Thunder Academies
* SealedEvilInACan:
** The "Abyss of Evil" that acts as one. Unusually, the BigBad, Lothor, didn't bust out of there at the beginning of the season; instead it factored into his EvilPlan: [[spoiler:if his monsters couldn't defeat the Rangers, they'd be sent to the Abyss; cramming it full until it burst open and gave him an army to work with.]]
** Double subverted, as Lothor is sealed in the Abyss at the end of the series, and then breaks out in the [[Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder next season]], during the team-up episode.
* SerkisFolk: Sensei
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: The Boxing Bop-a-roo, and eventually he's [[GotMeDoingIt Got Other Villains Doing It]], too. Lothor gets so fed up at the [[EskimosArentReal "made-up words"]] that he starts a [[TheSwearJar Made-up Word Jar]].
* ShapeshifterModeLock: Sensei is stuck as a guinea pig for most of the series.
* ShouldntWeBeInSchoolRightNow: A toss-up. It's not entirely clear whether the Rangers had to fit NinjaSchool around regular high school, or were already there the whole time.
* ShoutOut: Amazingly, it took the show eleven seasons to make a reference of some kind to Franchise/{{Godzilla}}: The monster Footzilla.
** Hmm, the team has a wise mentor who offers advice and was a famed ninja master before an unexpected accident turned him into a rodent. Now, [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 where have I heard of that before?]]
*** Well the Ninja Turtles DO exist in [[Series/PowerRangersInSpace this universe.]]
** "Looming Thunder" has a mole monster taunt "Can you guess who the mole is now?", likely referencing the then-current reality show, ''Series/TheMole''. Speaking of reality shows, there's Hunter comparing a HorribleCampingTrip to ''Series/{{Survivor}}'' in "General Deception".
** In what feels like being a bit of TakeThat in "I Love Lothor":
--->'''Lothor:''' I fail to see what lip gloss and face powder have to do with world domination.
--->'''Marah:''' Well, it worked for [[BritneySpears Britney]] and [[ChristinaAguilera Christina]].
* ShoutOutToShakespeare: The show featured this memorable exchange:
--> '''Lothor''': "...there's something rotten in the state of Denmark..."
--> '''Marah''': I thought they were in California?
--> '''Lothor''': ...it's Shakespeare. Read a book.
--> '''Kapri''': Technically it's a ''play''...
* SimilarSquad: Three new ninja students in the finale who act suspiciously like the Wind Rangers did.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Just as Nanami is the only female Hurricanger, Tori is the only female Ninja Ranger (and is still that after adding Blake, Hunter and Cam to the team).
* SuperEmpowering: Skyla the Karmanian
* SupernaturalMartialArts
* ThatManIsDead: By law, when a ninja is banished, they cease to exist. It is for this reason that Sensei never told anyone about his relation to [[spoiler: Lothor]]; As far as he was concerned, the man he knew as his brother was no more.
* TheyCallMeMisterTibbs: In "Beauty and the Beach", Kapri is offended when the Tori doppelganger addresses her as "ma'am".
* ThreateningShark: Vexacus, the shark-themed bounty hunter turned general.
* TomboyWithAGirlyStreak: When Tori's unmorphed, she's fairly tomboyish. But once she morphs, her mannerisms and gestures are far more girly. Much of this can be attributed to the Sentai stock footage.
* TwoTimerDate: Tori, splitting between attending Shane's competition and going to a movie with Blake and Hunter in "Pork Chopped".
* UnwinnableTrainingSimulation
* VillainousBreakdown: Zurgane has one of these after the Rangers defeat him in "General Deception, Part 2".
-->"Will there never be a day that is marked for victory? Will I always have to suffer at the hands of the Power Rangers? TELL ME, WHEN WILL IT END?!"
* [[WellDoneSonGuy "Well Done, Brother" Guy]]: Shane
* WillTheyOrWontThey: Blake and Tori.
* XanatosGambit: the ''entire season'' is revealed to be this in the finale, in which [[spoiler: Lothor reveals that he was intentionally sending MonstersOfTheWeek (and later his own generals) to their doom, so that their evil spirits would fill the nearby Abyss of Evil to overflowing, resurrecting his own forces along with the other ancient evils imprisoned there.]]
* YouFightLikeACow: ''ALL'' the Rangers, seriously, it's like Spider-Man times six.
* YoureInsane: Hunter tells this to Motodrone.
-->'''Hunter''': You're crazy!
-->'''Motodrone''': [[InsultBackfire Yes, but that's the fun of it!]]
* YouWouldMakeAGreatModel: G-rated version in "Beauty and the Beach", when Marah and Kapri invite Tori to a fake photo shoot in order to trap her.
