Each series takes place in separate Sub universes under a larger banner
This has all happened before.Okay this one might be hard to follow but here goes. 1000 years ago roughly Master Orc nearly destroyed the world the nylocks were sealed away the magic war happened Daishi almost wiped out the world Rita was imprisoned ETC. now in Power Rangers Turbo the Blue Centurion arrives with a message for the rangers concerning a coming conflict with all the previous Big Bads to occur in the year 2000. Now for the actual Wmg. Roughly every thousand years the morphing grid has a surge that draws the forces of evil together against the forces of good. The team ups between villains an ranger teams are spikes in the grid that are typical of this cycle. alternately this same cycle is caused by the grid becoming unbalanced favoring the good or evil too much.
The monsters are filled with hydrogen gas.In order to get around the Square/Cube Law, they have several bladders throughout their bodies full of the lighter than air gas. This also explains why they always blow sky high when defeated.
Building a morpher is easyOr at least, there's a trick to it, but anyone who has built a motherboard from spare parts can understand it. The tough part is finding a suitable power source; that's what puts it in the domain of ancient orders, government projects, and megacorporations. The ancient orders, government, and megacorps keep the secret to building morphers secret because they don't want massive proliferation. Case in point: R.J., who clearly used morphers jury-rigged from sunglasses and spare parts that didn't even USE a power source (they just rerouted power native to the user), but insisted that he got them from what is presumably the black market (he "knew a guy who knew a guy").
When a Ranger morphs, his/her regular clothes are de-molecularized and stored within the suit, and then reform as the Ranger demorphsIn RPM's Ranger Green, we see Ziggy, fully clothed, morph into the Green Ranger. He then attempts to use his teleportation ability, only to teleport most of his suit off his body. Instead of leaving him in his regular clothes, he is left in his underwear. So clothing is removed as a way of getting rid of unnecessary bulk (eg, in Mighty Morphin's Life's a Masquerade, Kimberly is wearing a dress, yet morphs into a pair of tights with no problem). However a Ranger's underwear is left intact presumably to prevent chafing and for hygiene.
All the ranger suits are energy constructs made by the morphersThis would explain where the suits come from in the first place when they morph. This would also explain why the rangers rarely get any life threatening injuries while fighting endless legions of footsoldiers and super powerful monsters. The suits serve a secondary purpose of being a durable but light and manuverable suit of armor. This also supports Linkara's theory as to why the suits spark when they're hit: It causes a small power overload causing the suit to discharge.
English is the dominant language in all the history of the universeAs a side effect of all life being connected by the morphing grid, every species develops the same language when the develop speech, and the language never changes significantly. Although other languages develop, they always get subsumed by English in the end. Even Earth had been predominately English speaking for most of its history in this universe, we just never see enough of a history lesson to know this. This is why Rita was speaking English right out of the can even after ten thousand years, why all the aliens speak English, and so on. The larger historical presence this would give England also explains what they were doing in colonial California. Presumably that one alien from SPD had a speech impediment.
The reason all of the Human Aliens really are the same species, as Andros claims, is because all the other human-inhabited planets are Lost ColoniesBack in the Great War 10,000 years ago before Zordon and Rita were sealed, humans were shipped out all over the galaxy and beyond as soldiers for Good (most likely with permission and proper recruiting on the aliens' part). Once the war was over, either as part of a bargain or due to the war's not ending well for Good (evil did, sorta, rule the galaxy by the time of the first season, for the most part), those soldiers were left behind and began new civilizations. We know Earth is the original world because of our archaeological record.
The use of the word "destroy" is not actually a case of Never Say "Die".When people on the show say they will "destroy" you, they literally mean that they will wipe you off the face of the earth.
Every Henshin Hero is accessing the Morphic Grid to transform.Their individual origins and phelblonium are just focuses to determine the morphed form.
The Rangers shout their attacks as a way of communicating in a battlefield situationLook at some of the fight scenes, especially the Disney Era ones. The explosions caused by the rangers weapons even their basic side-arms are incredibly powerful and can throw people away even from a few meters behind them. If they just used these weapons willy-nilly then they'd end up killing each other so they Call Their Attacks so that their teammates know what they're doing and are aware that a huge explosive blast of energy is going to hit something.
Any civilians watching the rangers battle will usually have the same reactions as the viewersBasically, they will get excited when the rangers are kicking butt and look nervous when they are getting beat.
Alpha is named "Alpha" because he was part of the first series in a long line of robots that Zordon designedBefore he got trapped in the time warp, it's likely that he was dabbling in robotics long before he was skilled enough to manipulate the Morphing Grid or make combat-ready Humongous Mecha. The Alpha line (presumably starting with "Alpha 1") was probably a series of prototypes that he made when he was still a rookie scientist. Hence, they were little more than robot buddies, with few practical abilities. As he went on, he gradually made more advanced models with more combat add-ons. There was a "Beta" line, a "Gamma" line, a "Delta" line and so on...culminating in a Humongous Mecha called "Omega 1", the first of the Zords. After the battle with Rita 10,000 years ago, all of the robots were destroyed except Alpha 5, who remained behind in the command center to help Zordon recruit the next team of heroes to fight Rita.
The various time issues in the Power Rangers universe exist because time has been rewound and fast-forwarded too many times.The Rangers were de-aged twice during MMPR, and the second time, the effect lasted for . The Orb of Doom physa 1/4th of a season basiically reversed the Earth on its axis (yeah... don't ask). As a result, the timeline has been modified so many times that it's like the the reconstructed Glass Clock of Time. The effects aren't really noticeable until you look at certain details, such as how Tommy and Dana both got doctorates in ridiculously short amounts of time.
Not all of the moon is inhabitableJust the area around the Moon Palace. When the Monks of the M51 Galaxy made it to protect the Zeo Crystal, they set up a magical field surrounding it so that they could then devote their abilities to excavation and preparation of the traps and seals on the Crystal. This magical field, providing air and keeping the temperature within the comfort zone, is still there because when the Masters make something, they make it to last.
The Zords are actually reverse engineered/enlisted Techno-organicsA la Transformers, specifically of the Beast Era Maximal kinds (and possibly with less intelliegnce/sentience). I have no idea how PR would therefore fit into Transformers canon since I'm not really that much of a Transformers fan but still, I could totally see Zordon reverse engineering (or even enlisting) some techno-organics if they had fallen to the Earth 10,000 years ago. They could then have been dubbed "Zords", just like the Rangers were dubbed as such and these first generation "zords" (Tyranno, Pterodactyl etc. including Titanus) then served as the inspiration for later Zords, using the same tech, and it's all gone on since then.
Zords require a code to enter from Alpha to be activated.This explains why in the Alien Rangers mini series why Zordon was able to acess some of the Zords, yet not be able to contact Ninjor.
Zedd's Haunted Forest, the Shadow World, the Abyss of Evil, and the Nighlok Heaven all exist in the same dimension.This dimension is the afterlife for Monsters of the Week after they were destroyed by the Ranger teams.
Earth made formal First Contact with KO-35 after defeating Astronema, and began an economic tradeWe know the Karovians had morphing technology and rudimentary zord skills. Soon after Astronoma was defeated, the technology level Earth displayed skyrocketed - a space colony, Lightspeed Rescue, etc. Within a decade, morphers are apparently cheap enough to buy on the black market with a pizza shop owner's salary, although power supplies still seem to be at a premium.
In a very near future season, we will see aliens starting to openly immigrate to earth.The future that is SPD is a little over a decade away (2025). With that in mind, around this time is a good start to have them coming in with people more aware of their existence.
Each Ranger Color has a different level of stability.Certain episodes, and even seasons, mention the danger of an over surge of one color. "Too much pink energy can be dangerous." And two White Rangers caused a lot of Damage in Dino Thunder. But other colors seem to be more stable. The more stable ones, like blue and yellow, appear in a team more frequently than less stable colors, like white and pink. Green and Black or somewhat tricky, and may fluctuate, possibly depending on the power source(Technology vs Magic.) The most stable color is red, which may describe the special properties it holds. Battlelizers. Multiple power-up forms. Therefore, mentors reserve it for team leaders, in case there is a time where power is at risk to run out. To back this theory up further: Forever Red.
The armoured ranger-like allies were forerunners of the Power RangersCharacters like the Magna Defender, Solaris Knight and Wolf Warrior seem to have something in common; they're all relatively old (some older than others). Daggeron also once referred to his and Leanbow's powers as their "Knight Powers". So perhaps instead of Power Rangers, these could be called Power Knights or something. This could also include Sentinal Knight, Robo Knight and Ninjor (maybe Ninjor traveled extensively in the east and adopted the nina concept into his design). Power Knights are perhaps, less powerful and tend to work alone, but compensate with strong armor and lots of experience.
Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers
Trini is actually transgender and pre-op.She hides everything well when in civilian identity, but obviously there's no time to do so when morphing under threat.
Rita did end up gaining the Green Ranger powersThe spell that Rita used said that once Tommy's powers ran out they'd be transferred to her. Tommy stopped the transfer by giving his coin to Jason before they ran out completely, while this appeared to break the spell it merely stalled it, Rita couldn't take the powers from Jason but the spell was still in effect. When Jason gave the coin back to Tommy in Return of an Old Friend the spell was reactivated and was just waiting for Zordon's power boosts to wear off. When Zedd finally made Tommy use up the last of his power the spell was finally completed and Rita gained his powers. Notice how, despite Zedd having removed her powers as punishment Rita manages to return twice? The second time explicitly shown that she was piloting her dumpster under her own power, despite not having her powers anymore? The Green Ranger powers were enough for her to control the dumpster but not enough to actually break Zedd's shrinking spell. Then once she gives Zedd the love potion he restores her old powers and Rita is now a lot closer to Zedd's power level than before.
Rita created the Green Ranger Coin herselfWe were never given an explanation of where Rita got the Green Ranger power coin, even though we're told Zordon found the other ones. We're also told that Zordon has created teams of Power Rangers before the team we knew so, after Rita past encounters with Zordn's teams she decided to make a ranger of her own. Rita's had possession of the power coins repeatedly throughout MMPR so it's not much of a stretch to think she's had them before, long enough to figure out how to copy the design. Also note that all the Rangers we know for sure that Ninjor created did not involve a green ranger but a white one instead.
Rita's Green Candle is the reason the Rangers needed new powers in S3This is a bit long, and might it better in Fridge, but I promise its worth it. Apparently the reason the rangers got the ninja coins is because their old powers were too weak to keep fighting Zedd with...why? I can't remember any real explainantion for this but I just thought: when Tommy gets his Dragonzord coin back in Return of an Old Friend (ROAOF), it almost immediately loses power and is then refueled by Zordon so Tommy can fight Goldar/get the dinocoins back, who (Zordon, that is) then needs to be refueled by the Rangers' power coins, which then accidentally spill all over Tommy, not only recharging his power coin but also providing enough power to heal him too. So, the coins end up doing 3 things at the expense of their own power: refueling Zordon, recharging the Dragonzord coin & healing Tommy. Now, since there was enough energy left over to heal Tommy I'm going to assume that the Dragonzord coin got fully charged, however, Tommy only fought half as well as usual so I'm also going to assume that the amount of "brain power" that Zordon was able to expend is equivalent here to half a power coin (hence Tommy's half-assed fighting against Goldar in ROAOF, by no fault of his own) and the amount to heal Tommy was equivaent to that (blatant guesstimate there). Now, lets do the sums, that's a whole 2 power coins worth of power minimum that the other five power coins picked up the slack for, half for Tommy, half for Zordon and 1 for the Dragonzord coin itself. So, that's 2 powers coins accounted for by 5 meaning that's each of the original five rangers' coins contributed at least two fifths of their power, leaving each original dinocoin with only 3/5 (i.e. 0.6 times) their original power leftover (and the Dragonzord fully charged but rapidly diminishing with each use). In summation, no wonder the rangers had trouble keping up with the Big Bad, five of the rangers had effectively been depowered ~1.6x and the most powerful ranger (Green, since he had the fully charged coin) was rapidly becoming the weakest due to the lingering effects of the Green Candle! There are also tell-tale signs in the show that the rangers were weaker post-ROAOF:
At one point, the Dairanger suits did exist in PR.At one point, Zordon had another set of Rangers—let's go with the Thunder Rangers for the purpose of this WMG. They lost their powers... but not their Zords and weapons. The Thunder powers were left half-broken, and so Zordon moved on to the MMPR. As a result, he had an extra set of Zords, an extra Sixth Ranger and a Power Cannon lying around for when the Dinozords were wrecked. During "White Light", Alpha and Zordon weren't building the suit—they were adapting it for use with the mashed-up powers.
They didn't change their costumes in season three because they kept the old powers as well.They may have gained new ninja powers which, (judging by their Tenga fights) were far more useful than their old forms but the original ninja power coins had aged for thousands of years by the time they got to the temple. Thus, they needed more power to call the zords. It is conceivable that Ninjor built or summoned the same model of morphers or Billy or Alpha probably had some laying around. So Ninjor recovered the suits as a means to summon the zords but made the ninja powers so they could fight better. This would also explain inconsistencies like why Saba is still around, why their suits look the same, how they don't need a morpher for their ninja forms, and why they can apparently summon their belt-morphers now.
Finster didn't just put any handful of Egyptian sand on the mold for King Sphinx...He got it right near the tomb where Queen Bansheera's minions were imprisoned.
Rita and Rito's mother is still out there somewhere, sealed away.We know she exists thanks to Rito mentioning her, but we've never seen her and it's not explained why. This is a pretty good explanation.
Madame Woe had previous encounters with the predecessors to various Earth-bound Ranger teams.It's implied that Madame Woe has been on Earth for some time. She most like encountered Princess Shayla, the Wind Ninja Academy, the mystical creatures of Briarwood Forest, the Pai Zhua, and the Ancient Samurai Rangers.
Serpentera can change sizeWe've seen zords change size before, and it would explain why it's so small in "Forever Red."
Something EPIC went down at the Peace Conference.While Trini, Zack, and Jason were at the Peace Conference in Switzerland, some weird evil crap went down. Trini died; thus, we never see her again.
After leaving the Rangers, Zack and Trini joined The League of Extraordinary GentlemenAfter the League fell apart back in the late 60s, the American government spent the 80s and 90s trying to put together the best replacement they could find. They'd probably been studying the Rangers long before then, and jumped at the opportunity to recruit some former members when they showed up at the peace conference in Switzerland note . Their martial arts skills and experience with supernatural and/or extraterrestrial threats made them invaluable additions to the team (even without their Ranger powers), and they defended Earth alongside many other famous Badasses such as Cordell Walker, Marty McFly, Dr. Daisuke Serizawa, and a suitably leashed Jason Voorhees.
Adam, Aisha, and Rocky were graduates of the Wind Ninja Academy or Thunder Ninja AcademyThey were mentioned in their first appearance to be ninjas. What are the chances of there being a third ninja academy in Southern California?
Ninjor was so isolated when the Rangers found him because he lost faith in humanity after Lothor's betrayal.He saw that his pupils were capable of misusing his teachings, and so he took his stuff and went home. He was persuaded to have faith in humanity again by the pureness of heart of Zordon's pupils. He didn't help them fight Lothor because he figured it was their own damn fault.
Ninjor created seven Power Coins per setWhen the ranger switched to the Ninja Power Coins, they retained their old costumes because they were still using their old morphers. But this doesn't explain why Tommy's ninja ranger form was white. However, the only Dino Zord that wasn't shown to have a corresponding ranger and Power Coin happens to be white. If we assume Titanus was linked to a "White" Dino Power Coin, we can also assume that Ninjor created a White Ninja Power Coin and gave that coin to Tommy. This would also mean that Ninjor created a Green Ninja Power Coin. In the same way, Tor the Shuttlezord didn't have a matching ranger and was green. Tor was meant to be linked to the Green Power Coin. And thus the creation and power source for the White Ranger can be explained. Zordon and Alpha simply adapted the previously-unused White Dino Coin.
The Dragonzord was cannibalised to modify Titanus for usage with the Ninja and Shogun Zords.This is why Titanus was seen wearing bits of the Dragonzord's armour whenever it formed the Ultrazord in season 3.
Grimlord was of the same species of alien as either Zedd or RitaThis is why Thrax had bits of his face.
Zordon didn't actually know jack about the phylogeny of prehistoric creatures in-universe.This would explain the fact that four of the seven dinozords aren't actually dinosaurs. The guy's an alien, not an earth paleontologist. And he probably never saw a Tyrannosaurus outside of certain inaccurate depictions, explaining why it's body is off.
Lord Zedd is from Silent Hill.Or at least the outer-space equivalent of it. It explains why he looks considerably freakier than most Power Rangers villains and can transport to a place called the 'Other World'. Plus, he has a knack for basing his monsters on the issues of the Rangers, especially when he makes them out of prized possessions.
Jason was a closeted homosexual who was secretly in love with TommyThink about it out of the four original guys (Jason, Tommy, Billy, Zack) Jason was the only one not to show any interest in the female persuasion. Before Tommy showed up, Zack was Jason's best friend but then he ditches Zack for Tommy (because he's in love with Tommy but only sees Zack as a friend). Beats himself over letting Tommy lose his green ranger powers. Has no qualms with being replaced as leader by Tommy while he's still on the team and even smiles about it.
Pythor, the rumored lost Zyu2 monster, is the most powerful being in the universe.Search your feelings, you know it to be true.
Rita and Zedd were sexually involved before actually falling in love.They still hated each other, but at one point succumbed to good ol' Foe Yay. The result was Thrax, who is somehow old enough to have a rivalry with Sentinel Knight.
Zordon was behind Rita's release in the beginning of the series.As we know, one rule of the Morphing Grid is that users of the Ranger powers can't escalate a battle unless forced to. Given Kimberly's involvement in the past in Wild West Rangers, Zordon knew that the Power Rangers would be needed within a couple hundred years. From Power Rangers Turbo and Power Rangers in Space, we know that Zordon at least had some correspondence with NASADA and had more zords (corresponding to the original 5 colors) hidden on Jupiter's moons. Justin was able to get the correct shuttle for the Astro Megazord just by mentioning Eltar. So one would think that Zordon might have intervened to stop the astronauts from unearthing Rita's dumpster...unless he was behind it. In order to prepare the Earth against the tougher opponents on the way like the Machine Empire, Master Vile and
The earthquake in the first episode actually killed all the rangersWhen Rita caused the earthquake in Angel Grove it was in fact a natural earthquake and the building the rangers were in collapsed on them. The rest of the series is inside Billy's head as he dies. This is why he's on the show for so long after he quit being a ranger.
Billy is a Super Human or alienCreating teleporters? Being able to turn older? Come on! That is NOT human. Even Einstein could not do that, even if it was the year 3000 and he teamed up with Bill Nye! Simple. Billy is an alien, or a Super Human.
Kim broke up with Tommy because of the Fridge Horror she realized after she went back in time.In "Wild West Rangers", Kim is aided by the White Stranger, who is Tommy's ancestor. At the very end, when Kim goes back to her time, her ancestor shows up, and she starts making eyes at the White Stranger. Kim may have looked into her relatives afterwards and realized that she and Tommy could be related.
Alpha rebelled against Zordon in "Day of the Dumpster"When Rita escapes her space dumpster, Zordon asked for "Overbearing and overemotional humans" to which Alpha replied "Not teenagers" which Zordon agreed with or more colloquially Teenagers with attitude, so who does Alpha bring? 5 of the most goody goody teens ever, teens who would of fit right in if they lived in Stepford instead of Angle Grove. So obviously Alpha didnt bring Zordon what he asked for, thus he rebelled.
Everything that happened between the fortieth episode of the first season and the beginning of the second season was all just a dream.The ending of the fortieth episode doesn't appear to make sense in the context of the series: Zordon gives the Rangers the option of retiring after they undid one of Rita Repulsa's better schemes, which forced her back to the Moon. That looks like it's just the old status quo reestablished. Why would Zordon even consider disbanding the group then? Wasn't Rita Repulsa still a threat? The answer lies within the two-part episode itself. Zordon and Alpha reveal to the audience that Rita's decision to land on Earth has backfired for her in the worst possible way. Because she landed on Earth, she inadvertently allowed Zordon access to her collection of spells. This would allow the creation of counter spells, and the Rangers wouldn't be needed after those were developed. Thanks to her own arrogance, Rita Repulsa has been neutralized.
The Dino and Ninja Power Coins are equally powerful.The Power Coins simply work better when used by someone who has a matching animal spirit. When Zordon had to make do with what he had on hand. Ninjor on the other hand was able to give them coins that matched their animal spirits.
Ninjor is deadRita and Zedd killed him when they destroyed the Ninja Power Coins. There's strong evidence that Ninjor either uses the same power as the coins himself or is actually tied directly to the ninja powers (he can enter the Command Center without a power coin or any advanced notice, he could be used as a power source to power the Shogun zords, etc.) so when the ninja coins were destroyed Ninjor was destroyed by the backlash. This explains why he's never seen or heard from again after the Rangers get turned into kids. He was supposed to be in tune with their hearts and come to help whenever they were in trouble and yet he never does so afterward. Nor does he help during the massive battle of Good versus Evil two years later.
The warriors who sealed the Face Stealer were from the Wind Ninja Academy or Thunder Ninja Academy.
Zordon had help from the Thunder Ninja Academy in building the Thunder Zords and the White RangerThunder Zords Thunder Academy makes sense to me. Furthermore the way Ninja Storm portrayed it, it seems both ninja academys knew how to make Power Rangers for a while.
In addition to the above WMG the Dairanger suits where an unneeded set of Ranger powers kept by the Thunder Academy
Zordon wanted to deplete the Green Ranger powers.This is an combination of several WMGs about the Green Ranger powers. Before Zedd left Rita on her own, he created the Green Ranger powers and gave them to her as a trump card. This also included the Dragonzord, remember the big "Zs" on its feet, which was not originally meant to combine with the Megazord. While Rita was sealed away, Zordon spent that time tracking down the Dragonzord and altering it to combine with his Zords, reverse engineering not only Titanus from it but the Thunderzord tech as well. Once Tommy joined the team, Zordon stated that a prophecy had been fulfilled. For whatever reason, Zordon assumed all those years ago that this ranger wouldn't be using powers that Zedd made, supported by the fact that the Sword of Light didn't have a green spot and Ninjor never once asked what happened to the Green Coin. So after hearing this prophecy, Zordon waited until the White Ranger appeared. So when Tommy joined, Zordon was truly grateful for the help but wasn't too thrilled that the sixth ranger wasn't matching his expectations. So when the Green Candle incident happened, Zordon saw this as a sign that the White Ranger would appear, and had Tommy give his powers to Jason to keep them from Rita at the last moment to make sure the power coin was too weak to enable a morph. He was content to wait until Rita forced the Rangers to re-empower Tommy. While he was glad to have the extra help again, he was getting impatient and decided that the White Ranger wouldn't appear until the Green Ranger was truly gone for good. To that extent, Zordon arranged things so that Tommy would slowly deplete his powers. This also explains why Zordon never tried to use the Zeo crystal, or even the other five coins, to restore Tommy's powers. An above WMG suggest that the main five Rangers as a whole were weakened after they restored Zordon. Another explanation for why the main five fought worse following Tommy's return wasn't that they were weakened, but that Rita started adding small amounts of the clay for the Super Putties into the clay used to create the monsters, making them stronger than originally designed. The Rangers could've defeated these monsters using the Thunder Slingers they used on the Super Putties, but Zordon chose not to in order to make Tommy morph. When Tommy was tricked into getting the Sword of Power Zordon realized his mistake, but it was too late, as the Green Ranger powers were now too damaged to even hand back to Jason. So Zordon decided to have Tommy end his tenure as Green Ranger with dignity while he set to create the White Ranger he always envisioned. He chose to make Tommy the White Ranger not only because he had truly proven himself, but to make amends with the Ranger team for deceiving them. Power Rangers Zeo
The Zeo Crystal stored energy from the Morphing Grid.Presumably, the Grid draws power from the between either the season's mentor and Big Bad, or good and evil in general. However, Dr. K says that the Grid connects every living creature. The Machine Empire was made up of robots and therefore was not connected to the grid. Thus, the Rangers had less power, since the Big Bad isn't living and is wiping out most creatures that were. If they don't have a direct connection to the Grid, they need an alternative power source: energy already drawn from the Grid, primed and ready. This energy was stored in the Zeo Crystal. Presumably, the RPM rangers use something similar. Again, Dr. K mentioned the field being electromagnetic; something to do with magnetics, perhaps?
The Zeonizers are Power LimitersThe Gold Ranger lacked them, was more powerful then the other Zeo Rangers, and was either an alien or unable to handle them over a long period of time.
Billy was still a little older in his final scene in Zeo.Notice how in his final scene how he stills sounds a bit different even though he is no longer old. Perhaps he was reverted back for the most part, but is still a few years older, maybe in his early 20's. This also explains why he can live on Aquitar without his parents, since he is now old enough. We can also assume his parents know of his past by then.
Kat was married to Tommy by the time of "Forever Red"This was actually confirmed by dual Word of God by the head writer of Wild Force and the showrunner of Dino Thunder, but where was Kat in Forever Red and Dino Thunder, well, considering that the events took place within a two year period, Kat could likely still be in Angel Grove where she teaches ballet, before she gets something stable in Reefside, and probably far to commute day by day and Kat would have visited met the teens during the timeskip in Drawn and Danger.
Tommy and Kat were married/living together by the time of Power Rangers Dino Thunder.But Kat needed to go somewhere... for a whole year... without any mention from Tommy's part for the whole season...and some implications that he is still single... anyway. She was out because she needed to do something the whole time, maybe she was out of the country studying or something. Tommy wanted to go with her, but she insisted for him to stay to begin his career as a teacher.
Tommy stopped using the Zeo powers after "Forever Red" because they became too powerful.Tommy was able to destroy one of the Machine Empire's generals with one "Zeo Flying Power Kick". An attack that (IIRC) we've never seen before. Tommy became worried that if one kick using the Zeo powers would destroy a monster/robot that would normally take a lengthy battle with five or six rangers, what could accidentally happen? Tommy may have been told by Adam about the incident where Carlos injured Cassie, which helped Tommy make his decision to never use the Zeo powers after Serpentera was destroyed.
The Zeo Crystal was somehow all-but-completely drained of its power sometime between Zeo and TurboEither from fighting Lord Zedd or the Machine Empire, the Rangers may have had to use up almost all of the Zeo Crystal's power somewhere along the line. Because of this, their Zeo powers would be temporarily made unavailable until the Crystal had recharged itself enough. This would explain why Kat's attempt to Zeo-morph in the Turbo movie barely lasted long enough to break her fall into the river due to the Crystal still being empty, while Tommy was fully able to Zeo-morph again in "Forever Red" after the Crystal had a few years to get its juice back. The Crystal being too drained to use would also explain why a new power set was needed in the Turbo movie. Power Rangers Turbo
The Zeo Ranger Powers were retired before Power Rangers Turbo because they were too dangerous to their users.Because of what happened with Jason and the powers of the Gold Zeo Ranger, the Zeo Rangers officially retired the Zeo Ranger powers and adopted the Turbo Ranger powers that Billy had been working on just in case they lost the Zeo Ranger Powers. As for why the regular non-Gold Zeo Rangers didn't get any adverse effects all year, that was because their power wasn't based on an entire Zeo Crystal like the Gold Ranger but a simple sub-crystal. However, the danger was still ahead for them. This also explains why Tommy would become the Black Dino Ranger instead of becoming the Red Zeo Ranger during Power Rangers Dino Thunder and why Adam would go through the trouble of getting his Mastodon Power Coin fixed and becoming the Black Mighty Morphin Power Ranger, when he could just become the Green Zeo Ranger during Power Rangers Operation Overdrive. Both Tommy and Adam were to be using their Ranger powers regularly when Zeo Ranger Powers are not fit for anything but limited use.
The Turbo Powers still come from the Zeo Crystal.This follows on from the "Zeonizers as Power Limiters" in the previous section. The theory here is that the Turbo powers represent a higher level of power from the Zeo Crystal, sice it's supposed to grow in power over time, and the Zeonizers can't handle the increasing power. It also means there is actually a reason for the changeover.
The Phantom Ranger is Alpha 5.Friend of Zordon? Robotic parts? Remember, no mention of Alpha is made after Zordon gets captured. Granted, the Phantom's planet doesn't look like Edenoi, but...it would be kinda awesome.
Rocky is the Phantom Ranger.
Billy is the Phantom Ranger.The Phantom Ranger comes from space (Billy was already off-planet), with new Zords (again not too difficult for him to have developed on Aquitar), has had communication with Zordon (again not too hard to imagine), and needs his Power Ruby to stay healthy (It could channel the powers of the waters of Aquitar needed to keep him young (physically)). Also no one finds it creepy that there might be something between him and Cassie, since Billy would only have to be few years older than Cassie for all the dates to work it accounts for that to. Another biased point Billy had 3 years of experience as a Power Ranger which would go a long way to explain why he could dispatch everyone so easily.
The Phantom Ranger Was Once a Man.He was a Ranger using the Phantom ranger powers that Zordon gave him centuries ago, until one day he was so badly injured he had to be rebuild as 90% robot, and could no longer demorph. But, enthusiastic to help people as he was, he took advantage of his new power to assist people across the universe for centuries, until he encountered Cassie on Earth. For the first time, he felt joy from something other than doing good. He fell in love with her, but could not bring himself to admit this or to actually be with her, because he didn't want to have to cope with having lost her when she dies of old age after having lived with her for presumably decades. He simply leaves her a message rather than actually saying goodbye so as to not break down in front of the others.
The Blue Senturion is an SPD robot that had its memory wiped.This was done because SPD studied the timeline, and found the Blue Senturion, and recognized some of their own tech in him. At the time, the timeline said he went back and stopped the United Alliance of Evil's invasion with the Millenium Message. But when he was sent back he was damaged and created an alternate time line where the Alliance was not stopped in time, Zordon died, and Venjix was created from leftover Machine Empire tech from the splinter cell's equipment left on the moon.
The Blue Senturion was always truly a video game character.In SPD, we see a Fighting Game in which the Blue Senturion is battling Cyclopter (PRLR monster, not Masked Rider general.) In Turbo, Blue said he was an intergalactic police officer, but we never see any others like him to indicate that he's part of a police force of any kind, even during the bigger battles away from Earth in which a whole squad of Senturions would really have come in handy. What if he was somehow brought out of the game (we know that can happen) and believes his game backstory of being part of a force?
The Blue Senturion was always just a game character.He somehow came from the computer (maybe thanks to Tomars?) and the Millennium Message is taken from SPD's computers - the events of Countdown to Destruction being common knowledge (kinda hard to miss!) by then. Somehow he wound up in the past. See, in PRT, he mentioned being part of a police force but we saw only him - even in Countdown, where a whole squad of Senturions would come in real handy. Maybe the parts of his history that weren't borne out in PRT and PRIS are his video game backstory and he still thinks it's real?
History was substantially rewritten during TurboThe Blue Senturion was sent back to avert some sort of global attack slated for the year 2000. As we know, the rangers only recovered part of the message, but Divatox received the whole thing. The global attack appears to be the UAE's combined assault on the galaxy at the end of Power Rangers in Space. It appears that history was altered so that the attack occurred a year early. Now, in "A Season To Remember", Tommy's grandson wears an MMPR/Zeo-style communicator. We are meant to assume that the rangers in that timeline are still operating under the guidance of Zordon, who is still based out of the original Power Center. Divatox's foreknowledge accelerated Dark Spectre's plan, and included the knowledge to destroy the Power Center. At the same time, we might conclude, Zordon gave advanced technology to NASADA, allowing them to build the Astro-Megazord Shuttle. Hence NASADA "coincidentally" builds a shuttle that can interlink with a Kerovian ship to form a Megazord, and immediately surrenders it because a twelve year old mentions Zordon. In the original timeline, Zordon survived but was therefore unable to purge the galaxy of evil, leading to a much more devastating attack a year later.
Justin's father had a nervous breakdown after his wife's death and may have been institutionalized.It's implied that Justin was separated from his dad for a time before the Turbo movie. He's been moving around on his own (relatives? foster homes?) and he and his dad have also moved a lot as his dad struggles to hold down a job (employers are scared off by his mental history.) Power Rangers in Space
NASA was reorganized into NASADA.It was simply NASA just like in our world, but in the Power Rangers universe they militarized themselves and became the "National Aeronautics, Space, And Defense Administration" in order to help deal with the constant alien invasions that were happening.
There is one of Maligore and Dark Spector's race on each planet.Considering their magma-esque hide, they could be some sort of race of primal evil entities born from the planet itself.
Dark Spector is The Great Leader.Reformatted once again, the Great Leader hops on over to another universe, where he gathers many of the galaxy's most evil beings, and forms yet another evil organization.
Andros had another team of rangers before the Turbo rangers came to space to take on the powers.
Zhane was a part of Andros' old team.
Ecliptor sacrificed himself to resurrect Karone/Astronema.People have often wondered why Noble Demon Ecliptor was killed, while Rita and Zedd (and Divatox, but that's arguably justified due to her relationship with Dimitria) were purified. Maybe Zordon's sacrifice couldn't resurrect Karone on its own, and needed Ecliptor to donate his life force to her in order to truly bring her back to life. Zordon Era in General
Zordon was evilMillennia ago, all sorts of life forms evolved. Zordon, for whatever reason, decided he liked humans and Human Aliens better than all the non-humanoid "monsters", so he started a war. The non-humanoids became warlike and aggressive simply to survive, thus allowing Zordon to convince his humanoid followers that they were evil. Eventually, the non-humanoids went along with this because they had lost their good qualities.
Zordon's power protected the Command Center/Power ChamberThe reason why Rita, Zedd, and Mondo did not attack the base, despite knowing where it was, is because Zordon had the power to protect it. If they had attacked it with an army, the army could have been wiped away by Zordon. So when Zordon left, Demetria, who was far less powerful, was put in charge and Divatox did not know where the base was until the end of Turbo. Without Zordon, the Power Chamber was vulnerable, and Divatox (who was a screw up until the finale) was able to attack it full force with no worries.
The show takes place in a parallel universe where England colonized western North America, rather than SpainThe city of Angel Grove, California, where the early seasons take place is this universe's version of Los Angeles. This speculation is mostly due to the presence of a Colonial Angel Grove in one early episode. Colonial towns are generally restricted to the original English colonies. Furthermore, we do once see a map of Angel Grove, and the coastline looks suspiciously similar to that near LA.
There is a Chinatown/Japantown of sorts in Angel GroveThat is why you can sometimes see Japanese text during fight scenes.
Mrs. Appleby received a promotionThis explains why she teaches different subjects in Highschool. She could have been promoted to another subject and grade within a year, and there are 3 Halloween themed episodes of MMPR, meaning years have passed.
Zordon intended to commit suicide from the beginningHe planned for the final battle to happen and went home in season five intending to be captured and killed as part of a Gambit Roulette to purify Rita. He felt that she could do more good as the Mystic Mother than he could do as a head in a can; he had already made all he could make and trained a new generation of protectors.
Scorpina got purified by the Z-Wave and turned into a humanWe can extend that to the other villains we didn't see then, such as Finster.
Scorpina got purified by the Z-Wave, turned into a human, and became Mia of Power Rangers Samurai.Before pinning me as a racist, hear me out. Scorpina did take on the form of an Asian woman in her human form. I imagine her purified self would be an Asian woman as well. Mia, an Asian woman who does bear some mild similarities to Scorpina, as well as sharing a similar sweet appearance, acts like an alien towards her human surroundings. Like she's trying to fit in, but isn't quite sure of the culture or social context at the time. As such, she seems to act like a stereotypical 1950s housewife. I imagine Scorpina became purified, but remained immortal and thus impossible to age, tried to become established towards life as a human. She may have researched how a woman is supposed to act to fit in, but probably got her learning from traditional, reactionary and conservative leaning stances that talk of how a woman should know her place, and stay in the kitchen etc. Scorpina, now adopting the human name of Mia, likely absorbed his information into her new personality, and became indoctrinated by it. It helps to tie in the continuities for me, as well as helps me to live in blissful ignorance away from the realization that Power Rangers Samurai has really, really bad writers.
The 3 Big Bads who were turned human were given a fate worse than deathThink of it. Why would Zedd, Rita, and Divatox be turned good, but not the others. The Big Bads are much worse than the minions after all! But, then again they all hate humans. So, to them that would be a fate worse than death, turning into the things they hate most.
Zedd became a Rabbi after "Countdown To Destruction".Well, with all the hinting about him being Jewish...
Zedd is ZedAfter being turned human by Zordon, Zedd could have continued his evil doings as a cop. The Gimp could be a left over monster of his.
Zordon has Angel Grove locked in a barrierWhy do the monsters only attack Angel Grove and nowhere else? Zordon prevents it by keeping Angel Grove in a energy barrier which keeps the rest of the world immune from the attacks.
Zordon was ErnieOk, little backstory. The idea that Ernie was supposed to be Zordon in human form was something the producers of the show told David Fielding, who voiced Zordon in season 1. The idea was dropped, as they thought that the fat guy running the juice bar was funny. We only know about this because David Fielding mentioned it in a podcast. Now, we can dismiss this as it didn't happen within the show itself. Kinda like how the idea that Kimberly married Skull, which was floated around Forever Red. It never materialized so it is non-canon. But is it not strange that Ernie's last listed appearance is the Turbo movie, while Zordon left to return to his home planet not long after? Ernie's absence was explained by the line "Well, his foreign service unit recalled him and he had to suddenly leave. I don't know, something about building a bridge in the Amazon," and the juice bar was left in the hands of Lt. Stone. Ernie never returns, not even for a cameo. Let that last part sink in. Not even at the end of In Space, the guy who always believed in the team was not there to say a few words. Granted, neither were any of the past Rangers. Zordon, on the other hand, left shortly thereafter to return to his home planet and be reunited with his family. He left the Rangers in the hands of his longtime friend Dimitria. He is captured and later sacrifices his life to purge the galaxy of evil. Now, you can say it's a coincidence. Two characters who were on the show from the beginning leaving at the same time. What I think is that while they never outright said it, Ernie indeed was Zordon. Maybe an avatar, maybe a fragment. Who knows? But what would that accomplish? What I think is that Jason, Kimberly, Zack, Billy and Trini were not chosen at random. Remember what kind of evens were hosted at the juice bar. Martial Arts tournaments, charity events, parties, you name it. That and it was a popular place for the teenagers of Angel Grove. As "Ernie," Zordon was in a position to monitor the available youth and figure out who was worthy to be a power ranger. Who had the ability to fight and who showed kindness and compassion. Maybe it was even "Ernie's" idea that Billy sign up for Jason's karate class. After all, Billy was insanely smart, which could be a benefit to the team, but without the ability to fight he could end up as a liability. And let's face it, he asked for 5 teenagers. Could have been anyone (I kinda like to think there is a universe where Skull was picked to be the black Ranger) and somehow Zordon picked 5 teens, conveniently in the same place instead of randomly picking teens from around the city.Thus, when Rita was released and began her attack, Zordon had already scouted out five teenagers with goodness in their hearts and in good physical shape.
Billy and Kim didn't switch minds.Rather, their minds were overwritten with copies of the others. So, in the case of Billy, there is a copy of Billy's mind over a copy of Kim's mind over Billy's mind. Also, The Kim part of Billy's mind was attracted to Tommy, which cause Billy, afraid and confused, to have many girlfriends over his tenure.
Goldar and Scorpina are still out there.They escape the Z-Wave in "Countdown to Destruction" and decided to cut their losses. They fell in love and got married. They even have a baby, just like in the ending of Zyuranger.
If Thrax was hit by the Z-Wave, he'd resemble Kai from Zyuranger.The purified Zedd and Rita/Mystic Mother would have named him Bubba, which was gonna be his name if they used him in the "Doomsday" 2-parter.
Post-Zordon First Saban Era
Power Rangers Lost Galaxy
Skull faked sleeping in on the day Terra Venture boarded and left because of SpikeHe knew about Spike, but Bulk didn't, or maybe he had second thoughts after buying tickets. He never told Bulk he didn't want to go because he knew Bulk really wanted to go, and that Bulk would stay behind out of friendship if he knew Skull couldn't go, so he had to trick Bulk into leaving without him; Heterosexual Life-Partners I Want My Beloved to Be Happy. Either way, he decided, whether beforehand or at the last minute, that he wanted to stay behind on earth so he could provide for and spend time with his son.
The Lost Galaxy powers were created during the galactic battle 3,000 years ago, and are based off the powers of Power Rangers Wild ForceAfter watching Linkara's History of Power Rangers on Wild Force, I think there's a flimsy connection to create this unifying theory between Lost Galaxy and Wild Force. When Master Org emerged on Earth, his Org army swarmed the land, and the Ancient Warriors defeated him thanks to Merrick's use of the wolf mask. After the Animarium was saved and Merrick sealed away, the five warriors heard of danger on another lush forest planet thanks to a mishap in Scorpius's first attempted conquest of Mirinoi (similar to the worm hole that sent Maya to the moon). The five warriors wished to protect nature on that world as well, but they realized that the battle far from earth would require greater powers for such a fight. So they crafted the Quasar sabers, and took eight of the wildzords through the portal in order to save Mirinoi. The battle was long and hard, and due to Scorpious's trickery, the wildzords they took with them were mutated into the Galactabeasts, with Strataforce, Centarus and Aenith being lost to space, possibly sent flying during one fight with Scorpious. Scorpius retreated, and the five warriors returned to earth. However, in order to protect this world, they planted their quasar sabers within a great rock, which they enchanted so the sabers would only be drawn by those worthy at the right time. The galactabeasts were later captured by Scorpius in revenge for the humiliation he suffered at their hand, and thus all was prepared for the day when five warriors would redraw the swords and be the force of great justice to stop Scorpius and his army once more.
Morphing technology is based on the abilities of Magna Defender's species.When we see Magna Defender and Zika, we aren't seeing them morphed; we're seeing what they really look like. When a member of their species dies, they have the ability to embed an object with a copy of their body. That object can then be used by some other person to gain armor that allows them to appear identical to the person who embedded the item. Morphing technology was created by figuring out what changes were made to the items when they were embedded and then figuring out how to make those changes artificially.
The Galactabeasts' organic modes are disguisesThis would explain quite a bit why they suddenly go from being organic creatures, to robots. They simply don't, as they are just disguises, possibly via holographic projectors.
Kendrix came back from the dead via a Reaper's GameIt took her more then a week to return either because she played the game multiple times, or because she became a reaper and had to earn points.
Kendrix never really died.Her spirit somehow got trapped inside her Saber during the explosion, which is why she was able to play Spirit Advisor to Karone. When the Sabers got stuck back into the rock and released the energy to restore everybody back to normal, her spirit also got released.
The "important mission back on earth" that Andros mentions in "The Power of Pink" is the foundation of Power Rangers Lightspeed RescueThis explains why his actor appears in the background of some episodes of Lightspeed, Andros is working as a consulting technician for the Aquabase. He is also the one who helped Dr. Fairweather access the morphing grid to begin with.
Areola is Maya in disguise.Ever since her team's team-up with the Lightspeed Rangers, she acts as a contact person for aliens who want to immigrate to Earth, leading to the events of Power Rangers S.P.D.. The fully-naked persona she adapts is just a cover to hide her true identity and intentions, as the common populace isn't ready for an alien influx yet. Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue
The Lightspeed Rescue zords were reverse-engineered from the Turbozords.Both have zords named "rescue zords." The destruction of a zord at the end of season two shows that a blown-up zord leaves big pieces; the Rangers were too busy in the Turbo season to hide the stuff in a dump. It's only logical that someone found them. It also explains how Lightspeed Rescue was able to make giant robots with a tech level remotely close to ours, and why they seemed to still be experimenting as if it were new to them. The program had been around for at least a decade, so they wouldn't still be in beta testing unless they had a relatively recent breakthrough.
Time Force does not use the Morphing Grid as a power source; instead, they use the Zeo Crystal.In "White Light," it's revealed that the Morphing Grid's balance is maintained by Zordon's and Zedd's struggle with each other and thus becomes less powerful when they aren't struggling. Zordon died, and Zedd was turned good, so they cannot be struggling anymore; thus, the Morphing Grid, and by extension anyone who relies on it, must be getting weaker. It's safe to assume that, by the year 3,000, it wouldn't be sufficient to power any rangers (no pun intended). On the other hand, in "Master Vile and the Metallic Armor," it's revealed that the Zeo Crystal becomes more powerful over time and thus will always be a viable power source. Also, Time Force's colors correspond to the colors of the Zeo subcrystals.
Alex did die in the first episode of Time ForceThe future was changed via the butterfly effect: some building got blown up in just the right place, causing an improbable line of changes down the timeline that led to Alex juuust surviving instead of dying.
Wes and Alex are the same personIn his early years with S.P.D., he had experiments done granting him immortality and eternal youth. He then survives the Venjixocalpyse, which convinces him to go into hiding in a cave somewhere. When he comes out, he learns that man has rebuilt, and founds Time Force out of necessity, since nobody else is. This is why the two have the same DNA despite intervening centuries and a genetic bottleneck in between them. Alex is more of a jerk because he's kinda jaded by now by the whole "everyone he knew has died of either old age or killer robots" thing.
Alex is a clone of Wes. The Red Time Force Morpher only ever responded to someone who shared Wes' DNA, not Alex'sTime Force is a Stable Time Loop. The morpher used by Time Force to create their Red Ranger was given to them by the Collins family. Wes's knowledge that, in the future, kids are genetically engineered meant that he could leave a blood sample in his family along with the morpher. When the right year came along, Alex was created. He grew up and joined Time Force, and it turned out that the morpher his family gave them to create their own Ranger only worked for him.
Alex is not the first clone of Wes.One clone is made every twenty years. They are kept separate, but they are all trained as Time Force. The base is the size of a city, so it shouldn't be hard. When one close turns forty, the next takes up the mantle as he turns twenty, and a new clone is born — all on the same day.
The Time Force Agency is the future of the Silver Guardians.Wes advanced his father's corps to the point that it became the progenitor of the SPD, and eventually the Time Force. Alex is in charge, because he is either a hereditary leader, a clone or Wes himself—rendered immortal.
Alex is the Time Force Chief O' Police.
Alex wasn't the head of Time Force in the first episodeBut due to the Rangers actions in the past Alex is not only brought back from the dead (having actually died in the original timeline, but only severely injured in the altered one) But also the head of Time Force due to being Wes' descendant (who used his knowledge of the future timeline and technology, and his father's resources to eventually form the Silver Guardians into Time Force).
Wes had an illegitimate child at some point before his ranger careerWhich is why Alex, his descendant, was perfectly willing to let him die in battle. He's already made his contribution to the gene pool.
One of the changes made by the events of Power Rangers Time Force was the policy of Time Force itselfSpecifically, the policy of erasing the memories of agents who went to the past. The reason none of the Rangers were familiar with it is because it hadn't been policy until they changed things.
In Power Rangers Time Force, (and by extension, the greater Power Rangers universe) time happens simultaneously.While definitely a Mind Screw, this would explain that despite all the activity done by the rangers in the past, the year 3000 seems relatively unaffected, and only seems to move at the same speed as 2001. Why? Because nothing had actually changed for the year 3000 yet. Despite the progress of technology, injuries and rewriting of the history books, the events of the series didn't change the future at all. (now not being an expert in the series, please correct me if I'm wrong) In the most definitive example I can think of: If Wes had died in the final battle as Alex had said, then by Temporal Paradox, Alex as Wes's descendant would cease to exist due to the lack of an ancestor. Thus, because time happens simultaneously, no major changes happen, so the Butterfly of Doom effect is not present in the universe. (I didn't make much sense, did I?)
The Time Force future is a police state.Ok, so this one's way out there, but think about it. 1000 years in the future (990 as of this writing), everyone talks about the greatness of the Time Force police. There's no mention of government, no mention of nations, just Time Force. Now conceivably they do exist and just not needed on screen as Time Force is just the arms of the world, but if Time Force is suppose to be in a Utopian future where "Peace and Justice reign", what does that imply? Now given that in the crossover with Power Rangers Wild Force we do see they have recreated parole with the ex-villain Nadira so it may not necessarily be a Crapsack World of a police state, but it's still a possibility.
Ransik's past of being hated by humanity is all in his headIt's never shown and sources that are easily more mentally stable and trustworthy say it didn't and we are shown Ransik is quite the bigot himself given his words against robots. Ransik just thinks different "species" all inherently hate each other.
Power Rangers Wild Force
Zordon and Ninjor set up the Animarium back during the Great Battle 10,000 years ago...to act as an army. We know that there's many, many, many, MANY Zords there, each of whom can fuel a Ranger - 100 of them, going by Gaoranger. No origin for the Wildzords is given, but they seem similar to the animal Zords created by Ninjor, which were shown to be almost alive. The two set up the floating island to be isolated and to act as a base of operations to save the world if evil won. They never called them in because, by the time things got bad enough to need an army, Zordon was captured and Ninjor was in self-induced exile, and so there was nobody left to pick them up. The scattering of the zords was All Part of the Plan because it would make for improved guerrilla tactics. Presumably, there was some "call the Zords home" button/sigil/spell in the Animarium, but it had been lost to the ages by the time Master Org attacked. They never created the 100-Ranger army because of instructions left by Zordon before his sealing, which over 7,000 years had decayed into legend - instructions to lie low and never call more than five, six max, at a time, presumably to avoid creating too big a morphing grid blip, unless all hope was lost and things were so bad it didn't matter anymore.
Ninjor created the Animarium without Zordon's help.Zordon didn't know the origin of the Power Coins. The Wild Zords (such as the Dino and Ninja Zords) have an animal motif; the Zords that were created by Zordon or those close to him (such as the Turbo Zords and the Mega Voyager) generally don't have an animal motif.
Animus's divinity was ascribed to him by humans, not realHe was just a magic zord capable of making more zords, made by Zordon or Ninjor for the purpose of mass-producing Zords easily. Alternatively...
Animus was a low ranked Morphing MasterHe came to Earth 7,000 years after the Great Battle seeking Zordon and Ninjor's help against the Orgs, and they helped him make Zords. He didn't have enough power, and so he had to fuse himself with his first megazord to have enough power to make more after. He wasn't as high-ranked as Zordon, and so he tried to make up for the lower quality of his zords and rangers by making a buttload of them. This is why there were a hundred wildzords, and yet they still lost to the Orgs 3,000 years ago. The loss of Animus is what spurned Ninjor to found the Ninja Academies, so they could provide more assistance to the next person looking to them for aid.
Power Rangers Ninja Storm
Ninjor founded the Wind and Thunder Ninja academiesInhuman ninja abilities, check. Located in California, which is the only place any alien bothers, check. Morphers with disks, check. Plus, they have tech far above average human levels, and it's all too ancient to be a result of trade resulting from the First Contact with KO-35 in late '98. Ninjor is known to be good with giant ninja robot animals. He didn't have the Academies help out in Season Three because of Conservation of Ninjutsu.
Shane's Battlizer has a third mode.It's called the "Tri-Battlized Armor," but it only has two modes. Therefore, it has a third, unseen mode. Since the two modes that we've seen handle ground and air, the third probably deals with the third Wind Ninja element, water, as an aquatic mode.
Tommy Oliver unconsciously created Power Rangers Dino Thunder because he has C-PTSD.Complex-Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is a form of PTSD without a visual component. It's extremely hard to diagnose and the result of repeated trauma. After being turned evil the fourth or fifth time, he could have begun to develop it. So at the beginning of Power Rangers Dino Thunder, he could have created Mesogog and his lieutenants and set everything in motion so that Trent would replicate his own situation with Rita. It would explain why the series felt so much like Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers—it was Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers.
Tommy from Dino Thunder wasn't the originalHe was the evil clone, who quickly got bored of coloneal times, found a time portal and returned before he left. Because there is no way Tommy could have become a professor in 6 years.
Tommy is a creative consultant on the Japanese Dino Thunder show.That's the reason why their morphing call is the same as the actual Dino Rangers.
Tommy and Hayley dated at one point.And it may have gotten serious enough to where Tommy felt compelled to tell her about his Ranger past.
The Dino Gems give you martial arts skillsThere's no way that a rock singer, a computer geek and a soccer player could possibly have fought off the Tyrannodrones when they first appeared. The Dino Gems had to have given them the power to fight them off and protect their host.
Kira went to prom with Trent in the finale.Seriously. All the teens had a date except for them, and there were pretty clear hints that Kira and Trent liked each other during the series. The only reason they weren't shown together was because Kira was on stage. Power Rangers S.P.D. Word of God, but it's obvious. Sky's father was a red Ranger, and his ranger costume was a Time Force one; we all know that this type works only for one person, or somebody with that same DNA. Sky mentioned that he was the best of the rangers, and Alex was described this way many times in Time Force. Also, we never see any other Rangers with Sky's dad; as we all know, Alex was working alone. Both Sky and Alex were JerkAsses. Sure, Sky's father looks different, but also older - he could change his look. It means that the Time Force Rangers' memories were wiped after all, and maybe even that Jen is Sky's mother. And Time Force was, for some reason, shut down and replaced by SPD, or was incorporated into SPD, because of alien danger. Yes, there are dates that set up Time Force in 3000 and SPD in 2025, which lead us to the theory below....
Sky's father is another clone of Wes.
The calendar has been alteredSPD, set in year 2025, has more advanced technology than Time Force, set up in year 3000 - they can travel in space and don't need a Megazord to send something back in time. Also, there are no aliens in Time Force; in SPD, plenty of them live on Earth, and there's no way in hell that they could just forget about Earth or abandon it. Also, mutants in Time Force are hated because of their monstrous looks; the community in SPD is very tolerant. For some reason, the Earth calendar has been changed, maybe to fit with those used by aliens; or one new cosmic calendar was created; or an alien planet's calendar has been in use for some reasons.
Doggie Cruger and his wife are not the Last Of Their Kind.She, Fowler Birdie, and A-Squad are all moles working for the Troobian Empire, and the rest of Sirius are their slaves. There is no logical reason for Grumm and the Empire to wipe out all of Sirius, but keep Isinia alive. None for Omni, anyhow; Grumm could certainly use that as psychological warfare against Doggie - but he doesn't. Also, there are some of Birdie's actions, which almost scream "Blatant attempt at sabotage": deposing Doggie as Earth S.P.D. commander and splitting the team up; conveniently being unable to help when Morgana went on a rampage - a rampage that, if not stopped, would've destroyed Earth Branch and left the entire universe at Grumm's mercy. There is A-Squad's sudden Face-Heel Turn, with little more than the desire to be "on the winning side" as a reason for their defection. There's Broodwing, who - despite his numerous Krybots - doesn't seem like the type to pass up the opportunity to sell flesh-and-blood slaves, which the Sirian invasion would've easily given him. All this seems to point to the whole bunch being in cahoots with the Empire from the beginning, selling out both Earth and Sirius for their share of the spoils. It also points to most of the Sirian populace being under Troobian rule. The team-up with S.P.D made a convenient Masquerade for whenever a high-ranking soldier or lowly thug (like Grumm) gets out of hand: just have S.P.D. eliminate them for the Empire. The rest of the free universe will see it as "bringing justice to the guilty".
SPD is a totalitarian agencyIt was formed after the collapse of the United Alliance of Evil destabilized the Local Group of galaxies. Dru, Birdie, and A-Squad are just endemic of the greyness of the organization. We don't know if S.P.D. high command was in cahoots with Omni. But there's still an S.P.D. in Sam's timeline.
Kat Manx is in love with Doggie Krueger.Watch her pretty much any time the two are on-screen together. In particular, check out the way she looks up at him as he rescues her in "Shadow Part 2", and (even more tellingly) the look of pain on her face at the end of the episode when Kruger describes her as "my very good friend."
Omega Ranger is very powerful because he's not just a Ranger—he's Battlized.Omega Ranger has a very wide range of powers. Also, the Battlizer Morpher is a repaint of the Omega Morpher. Now, this is par-for-the-course Prop Recycling for easier toy repaints, but perhaps in the future, SPD has advanced enough that their normal power levels are what used to be battlized power levels, hence the technology in their morphers.
Lord Zedd eventually became the Big Bad of Power Rangers Mystic Force, having been turned back to evil.There was no mention of Lord Zedd in Mystic Force, despite his wife Rita Repulsa showing up as the Mystic Mother. Likewise, in Operation Overdrive, their son Thrax only mentioned how "weak" they were for becoming good. The Master's reshaped body bears some similarity to Lord Zedd's pre-Countdown to Destruction look; and the Master was feared and respected tremendously by the forces of evil, something that Zedd once had as well. He personally went after Mystic Mother, knowing exactly where she was even though the Rangers themselves didn't know, showing some sort of intimate knowledge about the Mystic Mother that no one else had. Thus, Lord Zedd is the Master, turned back to evil and sealed by Rita.
Thrax was raised in a "time moves slowly" pocket dimensionBecause there is no effing way that nine years is enough time for a member of a functionally immortal species to be fully grown.
Thrax was raised in a "time moves backwards" pocket dimension
Udonna got the Mystic Morphers from ZordonAfter the battle ended in 1986 - nobody had morphing then, you may notice - she realized that she would need an edge when the forces of darkness arose again later, since she would be working with untrained new mages. It's inevitable that she would have heard of the alien Great Sage Morphing Master who lived out in Angel Grove Desert; she simply came to him to ask if she could have a few morphers, assuring him that she'd take care of the power source. The Mystics hadn't asked for his help during the war for political reasons; now that they were so weakened, she didn't have a choice.
Udonna got the Mystic Morphers from Rita.Rita would've known how her enemy's tech worked, especially since she held the Dragon Coin all that time. And this would explain why the Mystics didn't have it during the first war: Rita wasn't Mystic Mother then.
Rita and Zedd are still married as of Power Rangers Mystic ForceWe don't see him because while Rita's managed to get a sweet gig as the Mystic Mother of the Mystic Realm, Zedd is employed elsewhere, either in another subdimension (they presumably commute to work from the same place), or elsewhere in the Mystic Realm. Its not like we see Rita/Mystic Mother outside of her throne room, or get much exposition on what she's been doing since last we saw her. If you'll notice, the throne room is completely empty except for Rita and whoever is having an audience with her, so its not like there'd be any evidence of him in that one room- you can't keep pictures of the family at the desk when your desk is a formal throne room, after all.
The Spirit Realm is the "good" afterlife for the entire PR Universe.'Cause there isn't evidence against it.
Thrax has a twin sisterWho is the Zedd to Thrax's Rita, she looks mostly human but wears a visor similar to her father's.
The "Believe in Magic" requirement has a hidden requirementYou have to believe in others and yourself as well. In the magic of teamwork so to speak. That's why Nick wasn't able to access his magic right away. He was still struggling with his place as a member of the team and in his self will. It was only when he finally came back to help that he could finally believe.
Nick didn't believe in Magic at firstBecause he thought it was just really advanced technology. Maybe having seen all the science based rangers on tv, he just thought the magic was Special effects and technology that the others just happened to have.
The history and secrets of Dark Wish in Mystic ForceThe villains in mystic force once made a wish to stop the rangers. "I wish there were never mystic force power rangers." With a wish this specific, it ensured that the rangers never took up their wands at the beginning of the season. However, when the rangers talk about how evil rules the world, this seems to indicate that the 12 teams of rangers that came before them died/failed to protect the world. But how? Lightspeed Rescue, while working on demons rather than magic monsters, could be adapted to specifically fight the darkness. Some of them have ninja skills, some have megazords still, and they could also call on their space friends to fight (aquitar, the gold ranger, the phantom ranger and blue centurion, or the galaxy rangers). So why did they fail? I find there's two possible explanations. One is a matter of timing, while the other is a matter of semantics/bad luck.
Andrew Hartford is gay and in a relationship with SpencerStated elsewhere in the wiki, but it belongs here. Andrew is unimaginably wealthy and leads an exciting life. Even if his work as an Adventurer Archaeologist didn't net him an Indy-Girl-style girlfriend/wife who could have borne the son he wanted, his unimaginable wealth could have gotten him a gold-digger to do the same. The fact that he, with his social status and career, has neither a wife nor a girlfriend implies that he does not want a girlfriend, especially since he does want a son. His having a girlfriend, even if he wasn't truly interested, would make it easier for him to have a son, so the most reasonable explanation is that he's gay. Further evidence is his suspiciously close relationship to Spencer. The relationship with Spencer is requited. Spencer is more loyal than Alfred Pennyworth, and someone in that job without any emotional attachment would, if he was prudent, take the salary and RUN to somewhere not likely to be bombed by aliens. Love Makes You Crazy.
Andrew Hartford and Spencer are really Bruce Wayne and Alfred in hiding.One's a billionaire who uses his insane wealth to fight evil, and the other is his loyal butler. This could explain why Andrew was so confident that he could fight as the Red Ranger. This works a bit better with The Dark Knight Saga incarnations because of Andrew's slight resemblance to Christian Bale and Spencer's snarky nature.
Dax is mildly autistic.
The United Alliance of Evil was formed as a result of the Great Battle 10,000 years agoWe know from Jungle Fury that, in addition to fighting the Pai Zhuq and Zordon's group, the villains were fighting each other; this ended up neutralizing the three major villain groups that fought in the battle. It's likely that Dark Specter (or one of his predecessors) used these facts to persuade various villain groups to band together.
RJ bought the Solar Morphers from Andros, who, being a go-between between KO-35 and Earth, makes a killing as a morpher salesmanHow would RJ "know a guy who knows" Andros? Simple - RJ is a pizza shop owner affiliated with the paranormal. It's inevitable that the NinjaTurtles came by at least once. When they were there, they mentioned knowing the Space Rangers and left a number, which RJ used to buy some bargain-basement morphers (no power source and the nonstandard unpopular "sunglasses" model) just in case.
RJ got the morphers from Cam.He says that he knew a guy, who knew a guy, who had a uncle. Cam is the only one whom we know had a uncle (Lothor) during the series.
R.J. got the sunglasses from Cam Watanabe, who got them from Tommy Oliver.
Master Finn wasn't the only person to capture the "Starlight"In a later season, a villain will use the other cache of Starlight to revive the remaining phantom beasts, and the Power Ranger team that will be current then will have to team up with other rangers to defeat them.
Dai Shi was part of the Great Battle 10,000 years ago that sealed Rita and Zordon.No way is it a coincidence that two independent evils were sealed at the same time in the same place. Rita never tried to unseal him because he failed her and fell to pitiful humans (she was a bit racist, humans being as primitive as we were 10,000 years ago); the martial artists who fought him were trained by Zordon, which is why their magical martial arts include "Ki-Humongous Mecha".
Rita failed to free Dai Shi because she didn't know where to find him.
Rita failed to free Dai Shi because she had never heard of him.They were involved in completely separate branches of the ancient war.
Rita refused to free Dai Shi because she didn't need more competition for supremacy.This is the most likely reason.
The armored form Dai Shi uses when he fights the Rangers is not formed from his own power, but that of his host body, Jarrod.Jarrod was seen using the lion in sparring practice before Dai Shi got to him. Dai Shi's spirit had a dragon motif, as opposed to the lion motif his new body's armored form has taken.
Camille is a Half-Human Hybrid.Specifically, she's half human, half Rinshi. She looks human and accesses her animal spirit in the way a Pai Zhua user does. However, the form she uses in battle has more in common with a monster than a ranger or ranger-like ally.
Ninjor helped expand the moves used by the Pai Zhua/Founded the school.My evidence? When the rangers discuss with Casey about the Mantor growing, he mentions it as a move that the rangers aren't advanced enough to know yet. Who was one of the people who grew under his own power the most in the series? Ninjor. So Ninjor must have at least taught that move to them. And as he has experience in making morphers, he could've easily made some for the Jungle Fury rangers.
Future Adaptations and Unadapted Sentai
The Red Ranger in the new series will have a Heroic LineageHence the need for a fixed race. Descended from who? No idea.
Tzachor has declared all the seasons to be separate continuities specifically to prepare for GokaigerIt may seem stupid to suddenly declare that every season takes place in a separate universe just before they have to adapt a season that relies on previous Rangers returning, but think about it. How on earth could they have the Great Legend War in Power Rangers when so many Rangers have had more than one set of powers? For example, how would one have the Green and White Mighty Morphin' Rangers, the Red Zeo Ranger, the Red Turbo Ranger (If T.J is the Red Turbo Ranger, who plays the Blue Space Ranger) and the Black Dino Thunder Ranger in the same battle? Answer: Make each season a completely separate universe and all these different teams traveled to one universe where they could team up for the Legend War.
The Gokaiger adaptation will have Phantom Ranger give the Ranger Keys to the Red RangerThis is as Phantom Ranger is probably the closest thing the series has to Super Sentai's AkaRed, especially now that Zordon is dead. It follows that Phantom Ranger will finally be given backstory.
The Gokaiger adaptation will address every plot hole, Aborted Arc, and unsolved mystery ever.A fan can dream, can't he?
If the Gokaiger adaptation uses the Sentai-only suits/seasons, they won't use Himitsu Sentai Goranger, J.A.K.Q. Dengekitai, or Battle Fever J.Those three teams are radical departures in terms of suit design, especially Battle Fever J. Plus, without the context of the Sentai, the suits will just look kinda goofy.
AkaRed's counterpart in the Gokaiger adaptation will be the purified Lord ZeddTwo reasons to suspect this. First, the very theme of that season will by default be shoutouts and celebration of the show's history, and the character of AkaRed in particular seems extremely suited to being someone familiar from the old continuity-between-seasons days. Second, unlike Rita/Magic Mother, we only ever saw purified Zedd for a few seconds, and never heard his purified voice- meaning he can be recast and played by a cheaper Aussie or Kiwi actor without any jarring The Other Darrin problems. If he isn't going to be AkaRed, he'll probably be the mentor figure; its just too good an opportunity for them to have continuity porn and not incur any significant financial hit for it like they would for most tied-to-American-actors characters from that era.
If Gokaiger is adapted, the Rangers will be tag-teaming instead of the people in the Gokaiger suits accessing different powers. And if not, Tommy will be the silver ranger, Kim or Kat will be the pink one, Aisha or Trini-played-by-a-lookalike will be the yellow one, Zack or Adam will be the green one, and Jason or Rocky will be the red one. Also, the older teams will not be de-powered.Fans would not be happy in the slightest to see everyone lose their powers, so keeping that would be a bad idea. They'd have to re-shoot the opening battle anyway because of Ryan. Tag-teaming would be good because it keeps everyone in their own suit. And if they don't do the tag team thing but have the morphers copy the other powers they would have to put those characters on the team because it's doubtful people would accept anyone else wearing the Mighty Morphin suits, though an exception would need to be made for the Blue Ranger suit unless David Yost is somehow persuaded to return.
Footage from Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger vs. Space Sheriff Gavan will be used in the Gokaiger adaptation.Gavan will be adapted as Ryan Steele.
In the Gokaiger adaptation, Gokai Silver's counterpart will be a former Ranger.Gai Ikari is a Genre Savvy Ascended Fanboy who keeps an encyclopedia on Sentai heroes. While any random human would fit the role, why not make it someone who would legitimately know about the history of the Rangers and be able to show the... Pirate Rangers? (Doesn't really roll off the tongue) what being a Ranger really means?
In the Gokaiger adaptation, the Legend War will be All Just a Dream......which will become a reality by the end of the series (similar to the Rider War in Kamen Rider Decade).
There won't be a Navi analogue in the Gokaiger adaptation.RPM didn't have a Bomper analogue (they had Dr. K instead), so why not?
We'll get to see the actual RPM team in the Gokaiger adaptation.In "Clash of the Red Rangers" we have learned that RPM takes place in an Alternate Universe, correct? Thus, when Gokaiger is adapted, we'll get to see how the RPM team from the standard Power Rangers universe (as opposed to the team from the Venjix-dominated dimension we saw in the show) looks like. Unless, of course, they do something like the Gokaiger analogues winding up in the dimension where RPM takes place.
In the Gokaiger adaptation, GokaiSilver's counterpart will start out evil, but turn good.As a nod to the original series. Lengthier explanation:
The Gokaiger adaptation will reveal that an American counterpart for the Gorangers were the first Ranger teamThey were formed on Planet Zoltar, and Zordon was Aka Red before meeting Rita.
In the Gokaiger adaptation (to help fill the plot holes of the un-adapted Super Sentai teams) the un-adapted teams would be Retconned/Retcanoned to be Zordon's fallen warriors from the Great War 10,000 ago and to get their great powers (or whatever the plot they used for the Gokaiger adaptation) they must find their modern day inheritors first.The teams' adaptation names would be:
AkaRed's adaptation name would be...
The Power Rangers World as a whole is in fact a parallel universe of Super SentaiThe Super Sentai rangers reincarnates as the characters from Power Rangers; Geki reborn as Jason, Mei as Kimberly, Burai as Tommy, Dan as Billy, Goushi as Zack, even Barza as Zordon... Granted, they grew up in different circumstances and have different personalities (Kenta as Andros is something you can't deny) and deal with less intense enemies. This goes to the other following Rangers from their respective seasons.
The Power Rangers equivalent of Aka Red will be the Morphing Grid itself
Every Sentai team before Zyuranger actually has a Power Rangers counterpart, but they will not be introduced until the American counterpart of Gokaiger
If the Rangers version of the Great Legends War does, in fact, occur the majority of fans really won't care how it came to be.Face it... IT'S EVERY RANGER EVER TAKING ON THE ULTIMATE EVIL IN A BATTLE TO END ALL BATTLES... again, actually, since I'm pretty sure the Z-Wave was supposed too... oops. None the less, most fans wouldn't care if the ninja turtles open up some super mega awesome portal to make it happen, or if the ponies from My Little Pony pop up and magically make it happen, the majority of fans won't care and go flat out insane over it. That said...
The Great Legends War will be a massive disappointment...This goes back to the exact same reason that every crossover has had some flaw: money. The PR budget is never good up enough to do everything the creators want to do. How much money do you think it will cost to bring back every possible actor, get the suits, repair any damaged suits, the same thing with the suits apply to the props, and make a new villain? That's not even talking about the amount of money it will take to actually make the episode. Also, I really doubt it will have the time to live up to expectations. This actually goes back to Forever Red; Originally, it was supposed to be a two parter, but due to the fact that Disney wouldn't budge and let them do it, they had to make it into a 1 parter. Forever Red was good, don't get me wrong, but an event of this proportion will have MUCH higher expectations... and I just can't picture it living up to it. Hopefully, this WMG is wrong, but we'll just have to wait and see.
One of the male rangers in Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger will be gender flipped
Saban will adapt Hikonin Sentai Akibaranger
Tokkuger will be skipped
Meta and Other
Now that Saban bought back the rights to the show, we will see more cameos and guest-appearances from Saban-era RangersBecause that would be awesome.
Power Rangers and Doctor Who share a universeIn the Lost Galaxy episode "Green Courage," Terra Venture stops over an asteroid field which was once Gallifrey. In Time Force, Alex revives Mr. Collins with technology which look suspiciously like nanogene tech. Speaking of Time Force, it is highly plausible that the chronomorphers were late 30th-early 31st century model vortex manipulators. In "Wormhole," the Delta Command Base has a TARDIS console with the center raised containing the Dino Gems.
Zordon was a Time Lord.Zordon spent ten thousand years in a time warp, That's brutal enough for a Time Lord as it is, as it would kill those not used to the time vortex. His body then was that of a old man, but his knowledge of the universe, and his master plan for the Rangers suggests Zordon of being of a later incarnation 11th or 12th, when he was trapped. The energy wave that wiped out the United Alliance of Evil at the end of C 2 D was built-up regenerative energy which explains the change in Rita, Zedd, Divatox and Astronema. Since he did not have a body, the energy had nowhere to gather, thus, Zordon died.
Zordon is the Face of BoeBecause what the heck, it's fun.
Zordon is The Doctor. Now, because we kinda-sorta know that Jack becomes the all-head Face of Boe, we know that in the Doctor Who universe, really really really old humanoids tend to become 100% head. So imagine that The Doctor, instead of regenerating out of his 11th incarnation, somehow gets really, really, really, really, really, really old, turning into just a head himself. Before and during this transformation,he becomes less of a Technical Pacifist (owing to the lack of being able to do anything himself) and actively encourages others to help out. Now, near the end(ish) of his days, The Doctor realizes just how little, really, he did for the universe. He wonders what things that went wrong he could have changed. So he opens up a time warp to the distant past, sets himself up as Zordon, and basically sets up armies to do all the things that his earlier self would never do.
Zordon is the Doctor's long lost grandfatherIf Zordon is a giant head, that must mean he is REALLY old. The Doctor thinks every other Time Lord is dead. Key word THINKS.
Tommy Oliver is the second Bad Wolf because he created himself.Tommy created his family lineage — including himself — when he left his clone back in colonial Angel Grove. Tommy is officially so Bad Ass that he pulled himself into existence by force of will and a Temporal Paradox.
Zordon was The Wizard Shazam.Despite the seemingly tech based aesthetic of his powers Zordon is continually refered to as a Wizard. What other western wizard is famous for giving Henshin Hero powers? The very father of the transforming hero concept Shazam, the wizard who gave the Marvel Family their powers. Dealing with his previous champions' Character Derailment he traveled to another world and reforged his image to create a new band of heroes to defend humanity. This also explains the lightning bolt logo that seemingly has nothing to do with the show.
Power Rangers RPM and Captain Scarlet take place in the same universe.Okay, so the events of Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons take place in the year 2068, though the future as seen in Captain Scarlet is more primitive than in S.P.D. so here's what happens before, also concerning the aftermath of RPM. In the year 2027, two years after the defeat of Emperor Gruumm, Bridge Carson, now the S.P.D. Red Ranger, is summoned back in team to fight alongside a team of retro Rangers against Thrax's alliance, he returns without incident. Shortly afterwards, the Venjix Computer Network strikes, the S.P.D. Rangers are the first to face it, they are presumed dead. Venjix then decimates S.P.D. and all military forces, though some people like Mason Truman survive. Eventually Venjix exterminates most of the world's population. Any alien that hasn't died in Venjix's onslaught, quickly make their escape. All known survivors move to the domed city of Corinth to stay safe. Dr. K creates the Ranger Operators to combat it, eventually Venjix is defeated but escapes by hiding inside Scott Truman's morpher. It takes some time for it to strike again. Human civilization is slowly rebuilt, cities are constructed across the Americas and people start to travel to other continents. Venjix makes its move, it isn't as strong as it was but the war is brutal, really shizz goes down :L. In the middle of the war, Venjix decides that if he wants to wipe out the remnants of humanity, he must rip its heart out, Corinth. Venjix attacks the unprepared city with the largest army he has ever assembled, Human forces desperately try to regroup and make their move to the city. It's a long and brutal battle, Venjix is beaten back, but at a price, Dr. K is severely wounded and all the zords are destroyed. It is decided a new approach is to be taken, and all the military forces of the new cities are merged into one military defense task force. It has a large arsenal of vehicles, but they are not actually zords. Fleets of Pursuit Vehicles, Saloon Cars and advanced Helicopters and Passenger Jets. The forces are led by Colonel Truman, designated Colonel White, based in Cloudbase, a flying aircraft carrier, operating forty thousand feet above Earth used to monitor Venjix's movements. Since the Rangers' zords are destroyed, they are forced to fight Venjix's armies via aerial strikes using the Angels, experimental fighter planes.
Christopher Khayman Lee is a vampire!Think of it. Khayman is a fairly important vampire in Anne Rice's novels. Christopher Lee played Dracula in numerous Hammer Horror movies. "Christopher Khayman Lee" is a Meaningful Name a vampire might pick for himself, figuring even if someone figured it out, they'd never believe it. It deserves noting, also, that Christopher Khayman Lee believes he is a vampire and lost his virginity to his sister in a bathtub full of human blood. No joke.
Chad (Lightspeed Rescue) is a werewolf.Okay, that one's an old bit of fandom WMG, but no reason it can't go here.
Why the Green Mighty Morphin' Ranger suddenly has silver trim on his helmet
The old lady who said, "There's no such thing as monsters." in Trakeena's Revenge was being overly literal and wrong
The old lady from the Lost Galaxy/Lightspeed Rescue crossover was part of the MIB.She was involved in government cover-up of the various alien and demon attacks that took place in the past eight years, and what she said to the girl was an I Was Never Here style line. Obviously, that cover-up's not going to well.
The "no such things as monsters" lady was just trying to not scare the kid.This is an old lady to a little girl. If you were that young and you KNEW, positively KNEW, that monster existed, how much would you be able to sleep? This is probably a grandmother, someone who is very kind and caring towards people, she knows what that kind of knowledge might do to a girl. However, it may not have been the best logic ever to not even try to inform authorities after the girl left. So she's still not too smart that way.
Power Rangers Jungle Fury, Power Rangers RPM, and the Power Rangers adaptations of Samurai Sentai Shinkenger, Tensou Sentai Goseiger, and the 20th Series all take place in Alternate Universes to the Main Universe and to each other.
Time Force's future and RPM take place in the same reality
The explanation for Tommy's fast-track PHD is actually quite mundane.After something like three to five years living on high alert in what is essentially a war situation with the fate of the world always in the balance, Tommy found himself with nothing to do, comparatively speaking. Very much used to life with little or no sleep and a need to learn lessons very very fast, he turned all this energy and drive to getting his PHD, and with no team to lead and worry over, his now-honed brain was able to use every last short-cut that might exist, holding down a class schedule as grueling as any mook fight or Crisis, without feeling the pressure of the world's fate, and with the added illicit thrill of accomplishing something strictly for himself. Add in no real girlfriend at that point, and exposure to alien tech with strange laws and rules, and you have a very committed man capable of thinking very fast. Of course, his push and the accompanying exhaustion could have led to his errors in judgment, like the Tyrannodrones and creating a dino with the power of mind control—and like that.
