Web Video / Power Rangers Marathon Stream

Go To

Hosted by Twitch TV, the Power Rangers Marathon was a 15-day long marathon running from March 13th, 2017 to March 28th, 2017 showing every single episode of the Power Rangers show's various incarnations from Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers to Power Rangers Dino Charge. Every. Single. Episode - all 831 of them. Done partially to promote the then-upcoming 2017 movie, the stream is/was massively successful with tens of thousands of active viewers on all hours of the day and millions of total views within the first day. Naturally, due to the franchise being nearly 25 years old at the point of the stream and airing globally across multiple channels during the seasons' runs, a huge variety of folks joined the chat to be entertained and poke fun at the show's more ridiculous moments.

Tropes that are common to the stream and its chat:

  • Anything That Moves: Any slight innuendo, tentacles, or both typically results in lewd comments flooding the chat.
  • Butt-Monkey: Cestro (Blue Alien Ranger) also known as Clip, due to his extremely frequent appearance in adverts showing him getting knocked down a hill and comically grunting all the way down.
  • Catchphrase: According to the chat, Lothor's is "Dickens".
  • Darth Vader Clone: Lampshaded. Koragg was dubbed "Darth Vader" by the chat for fitting the criteria.
  • Flat "What": A common reaction to the more insane happenings in the show like Ninja Storm's guinea pig sensei or the rollerskates using Mega Battle mode from Time Force.
  • Lethal Joke Weapon: Cruger's (SPD Shadow Ranger) Shadow Sabre, which the chat concluded is made out of rubber due to its bending.
  • Advertisement:
  • Long Runner: Over eight hundred episodes, twenty one seasons, and hundreds of hours worth of footage results in a marathon nearly three weeks long.
  • Not a Morning Person: Due to the stream's timing, it sadly caused many beloved episodes to air late at night or very early in the morning, quite a few of the chat hopped in well into the dark hours or woke up earlier than usual.
  • Running Gag: Tons of them. Almost always in all-caps because this is Twitch chat.
