The much-disliked sunglasses morphers actually do make sense from a practical standpoint. If your transformation requires an elaborate kata, having your Transformation Trinket far away from flailing arms means you're less likely to drop it mid-morph.

Also, according to their Super Sentai's counterpart character page, Theo's counterpart's actor had a twin who showed up in an episode as his evil twin and RJ's counterpart was his in-show brother. Suddenly Lewin makes so much more sense...
When Power Rangers Jungle Fury aired, I knew a lot of people who considered Red Ranger Casey the Scrappy, mostly due to his constant wangsting about being a rookie who gets everything later than his more experienced teammates. Then it hit me: Casey is a deconstruction of the Rookie Red Ranger trope as, unlike past Rookie Reds who jumped at the call and quickly adjusted to their roles, Casey showed to have actual concerns about his own progress (not being able to catch up, being the last to find a master, etc.) And by the finale, he's finally got his act together and is now a Martial Arts instructor! Bruce Kalish may get a lot of flack, but you have to give it up to him for this one. -LLSmoothJ

Did the Jungle Fury Rangers manage to keep their town safe until the RPM Rangers destroyed Venjix or were they destroyed?
