Power Rangers Legacy Wars is a 2017 mobile video game based on the Power Rangers franchise. Initially released to celebrate Power Rangers (2017), it's now a celebration for all things Power Rangers.

In the reboot movieverse, Rita Repulsa is setting out to take revenge against the Rangers. She's found a way to enter the Morphing Grid and seeks to ravage it to strike out against Rangers throughout space/time. Recruited by Zordon and given "Zeo Shards", you recruit heroes and villains throughout the series' 25 years and battle others to stop Rita's threat.

The game takes characters from the 25+ years of Power Rangers live-action series, along with the 2017 reboot movie, the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers (Boom! Studios) series, and Power Rangers Hyper Force.

In July 2018, it was revealed that a tie-in short film would be released towards the end of 2018 for the game, telling the story of how Bison and co (of Street Fighter fame) got into the Morphing Grid in the first place, and is being produced by Bat in the Sun alongside veteran Power Rangers actor Jason David Frank. The short will see JDF join the BitS cast along with other PR alumni and feature the unveiling of the Crimson Hawk Ryu Ranger, Ryu's ranger form. Trailer here. Video here.

Examples:

  • Ambidextrous Sprite: Characters fighting from the right side of the screen are flipped horizontally. It's most noticable with characters that have asymmetrical suits such as Danny and Kendall.
  • Badass Normal: Several rangers have civilian skins, so they can fight unmorphed as easily as when they're suited up.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: Pumpkin Rapper literally outright asks for someone to add him to the roster of Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid in one of his victory quotes.
    • Another of his victory quotes has him accuse the opponent player of being a button-masher.
  • Excuse Plot: The story of Rita diving into the Morphing Grid is this, basically giving you a reason as to why you're in a PVP-match with other characters.
  • Guest Fighter: Street Fighter characters Ryu, Akuma, M. Bison, Cammy, Guile, and Chun-Li appear as playable characters in their Street Fighter V incarnations starting with the May 16, 2018 update.
  • Advertisement:
  • Heads I Win, Tails You Lose: Inverted during Raid events. Whether you win, lose, or run out of time, every battle will end with your lead character doing their victory pose. It makes sense because damage persists so you'll always make some progress no matter the outcome, but it can be a bit strange, especially during Megazord fights where you can get KO'd and then immediately see the opponent exploding in the background.
  • Humongous Mecha: An update halfway through year one added in Megazord battles. Players start out with the classic Megazord and can obtain the Thunder Megazord, Mega Goldar (an alternate version of giant sized Goldar, original to the game), the Predazord, the Black Dragon, the Samurai Megazord, the Delta Squad Megazord, and the Dragonzord.
  • Limit Break: Street Fighter characters have a "Super Mode" ability that becomes available after filling a meter and allows them to use EX versions of their attacks.
  • Loads and Loads of Characters: There are plenty of Power Rangers and villains in the game, with the three seasons of Mighty Morphin providing the most characters to play with (currently a whopping nineteen) and nearly thirty years of franchise history to pull from going forward. In addition, there are characters originating from the BOOM! Studios comics, the Hyperforce actual-play series, the 2017 reboot movie, and Street Fighter. As of September 2021, the only part of the franchise without any playable representation is Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers: The Movie note , with everything else having at least one character.
  • Me's a Crowd: Plenty of it, with the classic and movie versions of the original five Rangers and Rita along with six versions of Tommy Oliver (Green, Green V2, Lord Drakkon, White, Zeo Ranger V - Red, and Black Dino Thunder)
  • One Steve Limit: Averted - players can have both leader and assist versions of the same character on the team. This goes double for the classic and movie versions.
  • Palette Swap: Several characters have alternate skins that represent different power sets (Heckyl as a Solar Ranger, Zack as an Omega Ranger) or different characters (Hunter for Blake, Psycho Blue for Psycho Green). Koragg and Leanbow/Wolf Warrior are the only ones that are two entirely separate characters but play identically.
  • Tactical Rock–Paper–Scissors: Players have three types of attacks - Strike, Smash, and Block. Strike, signified in yellow, are speedy attacks that break through slower Smash attacks and are stopped by Blocks. Smashes, signified in red, are strong attacks that break through Blocks and are stopped by Strikes. Blocks, signified in blue, are blocking or stun attacks that stops Strikes and can be broken through with Smashes.
