Series: Chouriki Sentai Ohranger
aka: Ohranger
Only those who have learned the power of the Super-Civilization will be able to save humanity from its greatest crisis: Baranoia, the Machine Empire, which plans to invade the Earth!
- The Opening Narration, which got retired quickly.

Chōriki Sentai Ohranger (Super Powered Squadron Ohranger note ) is the nineteenth installment in the Super Sentai series, airing from 1995 to 1996.

Six million years after being exiled from Earth by his creators on Pangaea, the evil robot Bacchushund has returned with his Machine Empire, Baranoia. In order to defeat the threat, five officers of UAOH (United Airforce Overtech Hardware) must use technology from Pangaea itself to become the mighty Ohranger team.

The show commemorated the 20th anniversary of the Super Sentai Series, following the retroactive inclusion of Himitsu Sentai Goranger and J.A.K.Q. Dengekitai two years earlier. It was also the first Sentai show to start the yearly crossover specials between the current team and previous one with Olé vs. Kakuranger.

Adapted into Power Rangers Zeo, continuing where Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers left off.

The Ohrangers consist of:

Allies:

  • Chief Miura: Mentors and creator of the Ohranger technology.

The Machine Empire Baranoia is comprised of:



Recurring Super Sentai tropes:

Tropes specific to Chouriki Sentai Ohranger:

  • All Men Are Perverts: Subverted. Chief Miura is unaffected by Multiwa's Charm spells because he's trained his body and heart to resist being moved against his will. The Ohranger males however are constantly taken down by it, despite knowing who she is.
  • A Twinkle in the Sky: Happens to Juri in episode 12.
  • Back-to-Back Badasses: Buster OhrangerRobo's Gattai sequence starts with OhrangerRobo and RedPuncher standing back to back.
  • BFS: OhBlocker's Twin Blocken Crash finisher. It combines the two sabers together above its head, allowing them to project a gigantic Laser Blade that comes crashing down on the monster. Was only used twice, afterwards being replaced by OhBlocker rolling Tackleboy at the monster.
  • Benevolent Genie: Gunmajin... Hm. In what way, you ask?
    • "Punish those bullies" = Puts them on a very high branch and blows wind at them.
    • "Take over/destroy the world for me!!" = "don'wanna. Not fun." * reverts to ittybitty form* (Incidentally, it's Bomber The Great giving this order. Think about it.
  • Catch Phrase: "Ohre!" for... the whole team.
  • Continuity Snarl: The Ohranger vs. Kakuranger crossover movie features the Oh Blocker, Tackle Boy and Gunmazin. This is despite the fact the movie is set when Emperor Bacchushund is still alive, whereas Oh Blocker's first battle was precisely the battle where Bacchushund died and the other two appeared afterward.
  • Darker and Edgier: This is What Could Have Been (see Too Soon in the Trivia page).
    • Although, the first few episodes did manage to be surprisingly gritty and intense, especially with episode 1 to 4 or so, giving a little insight of what the show could have been.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: One Baranoia monster's scheme was to amplify the sound of babies crying to destructive levels. He wanted to discourage humans from ever having babies; pity he never imagined they'd try desperately to calm them down.
  • Fake Defector: Juri fakes cowardice in order to get the antidote for a monster's poison. It doesn't go that well.
  • Fanservice: One scene by the river during the Kakuranger team up, where we can see some talent from the Ohranger girls.
    • There's also episode 23, in which Juri has to battle her brainwashed team-mates in first her swimsuit and then in just her underwear.
  • Fish Out of Temporal Water: Riki.
  • Kissing Cousins: Kaiser Buldont and Princess Multiwa get married in episode 41 and have a child six episodes later. There's no Squick because they're robots.
  • Lost Technology: The Ohrangers get their powers from technology created on Pangaea.
  • Mid-Season Upgrade: Actually has two. Red Puncher Midseason, and it has a 3/4 season upgrade with Ohblocker later on.
  • Older than They Look: Riki might be a kid, but he's a Six-Million Year Old Kid!
    • He was in stasis though, so he's really not that old. He is however very mature for his age.
  • Precursors: Pangaea, again.
  • Pun-Based Title: "Ohranger" can mean several things depending on the context. It can refer to the O.H. (Overtech Hardware) technology used by the heroes, the Japanese word for "King", the Spanish word "Olé" (which is the catchphrase of the Ohrangers), or even as a homophone for the word "Aura" (oura).
  • Punny Name: Bara Ivy. The Japanese word for "rose" is bara.
    • One guest character is named "Henna-jiisan", which literally means Old Man Henna. However, "henna" is also an adjective for someone who is weird, so his name ends up sounding like "weird old man".
  • Reunion Show: Jump started the annual team ups between current and previous Super Sentai teams.
  • Synchronization: The Baranoia monster Bara Brain was linked to a counterpart, the giant Bara Seperate, and was destroyed when Bara Separate fell to the first use of the Ohranger Robo.
  • Tagalong Kid: Averted with Riki in spite of his age.
  • Theme Naming: The Ohrangers, sans Riki, have surnames relating to their geometric symbols.
    • Maruo = Round tail
    • Nijo = Two Lines note 
    • Mita = Three Fields note 
    • Yokkaichi = Fourth Day City note 
    • Hoshino = Star Field
    • Riki's symbol is the Kanji "Oh"/"King", matching his codename. It has six "terminals" in its shape as he's literally the Sixth Ranger of the group.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Juri and Momo. They switch based on the situation. Generally Juri is more physically competent and outspoken and confident, while Momo has a softer feminine personality and is the Distressed Damsel a few times.
  • Torpedo Tits: Keris shoots lasers from her nipples in giant monster form
  • Trojan Horse: The Ohrangers use a Trojan Horse gambit (Chief Miura directly brings up the myth, even) to get themselves and the Blocker Robos inside the Baranoia moon base in "The Five Robos' Great Riot".
  • Twenty Minutes into the Future: This is set in the then-future year 1999. Or at least, it was intended before the teamups.
  • Whip It Good: Keris' weapon in human guise is a whip.
