Super Sentai Whose Power Rangers Counterparts Who Were Too Different

Well it's time to write another comparison and clarification of Super Sentai and Power Rangers just a little bit for those who are new to enjoying Super Sentai, before jumping into conclusions please read this first so you don't get too much of a shock.  They were:

Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger and MMPR Season 1- While Zyuranger focused on members of ancient mankind who were revived in the present day from suspended animation to fight Bandora's forces, MMPR followed the formula of Turboranger of having teenagers with attitude chosen to fight Rita Repulsa's invading forces though neither Zordon or Alpha could provide a real explanation why they were chosen.

Gosei Sentai Dairanger and MMPR Season 2- Compared to Dairanger which is presumably self-contained from Zyuranger, MMPR Season 2 was a continuation of the first season with the teenagers with attitude motif.  In Dairanger, it was basically a fresh new batch chosen to fight the return of the Gorma and the themes were chi beasts and martial arts.  So pretty much self-contained that Gorma XV couldn't be Bandora's master.  Also Kou the sixth member was just a child too.  Note that Dairanger is a different continuity from Zyuranger.

Hiding Sentai Kakuranger and MMPR Season 3/Alien Rangers spin off- Boy much different.  I don't even want to start talking about how horrible the third season is.  The Kakurangers weren't aliens, they were ninjas in the modern day battling the Youkai and Daimaou wasn't Bandora's father since this is pretty much its own.

Choriki Sentai Ohranger and Zeo Rangers- Just a continuation that stretched too far with the original cast.  Ohranger was basically a military themed show, not teenagers with attitude that fought Baranoia.  


Carranger vs. Power Rangers Turbo- I don't even know why the Carranger adaptation even took "Turbo" when it wasn't a Turboranger adaptation!  Now for starters, Carranger is magic-based cars while Power Rangers Turbo was a continuation of Ohranger which had a midseason cast change.

Denji Sentai Megaranger vs. Power Rangers in Space- Just for clarification, Megaranger is NOT a space themed Super Sentai as some Power Rangers who are new to Super Sentai but haven't seen this series is even if they understand there won't be a "countdown to destruction".  Megaranger is focused on computers, five teenagers with attitude who get gathered by random and fighting the Nejire, not a collaboration of villains from Zyuranger down to Ohranger.

Seijuu Sentai Gingaman vs. Power Rangers Lost Galaxy- Now don't start that rumor okay?  Now while the Lost Galaxy team were on Terra Venture in space, the Gingamen were on Earth while getting their powers from a lost galaxy.  

Engine Sentai Go-onger vs. Power Rangers RPM- While Go-onger focused on Braneworlds, racetracks and outright silliness, RPM was different.  Power Rangers RPM focused on a war torn Earth thanks to a deadly computer virus called Venjix that has wrecked the Earth.  Proven to be quite a standalone.

Tensou Sentai Goseiger vs. Power Rangers Megaforce- While the Goseigers were "angels", the Megaforce Rangers were teenagers with attitude.

Comments

  1. Saban only most unique in that list is In Space-though Megaranger still rocks. In Space did that Star Trek/ Space Academy schtick that worked as the closets is Flashman and Gokaigers with the heroes roving around a spaceship.

    Dairangers is not even close as Saban have almost adapted the the actual fight scenes in his out of touch dubbing. Can you imagine Trini talking rubbish while doing drunking fist, Zach is talking about his "hip hop kido free style" as he is doing Hung Fist or doing the pole in groin attack as Daigo is good at. I am will stop right there as Jason's dubbing for Ryuranger will get us nowhere. Thankfully it is only the robot and Kibaranger being used.


    Even though it is a PR anniversary special, Saban or Disney was very sloppy. They used B-Fighters as the antagonist in the Red Ranger special.
