Sentai Speculation: How Lami Was Probably Created


Lami for me is one character that was probably composite of some pre-Zyuranger villains.  My wild guesses are she's inspired by the following characters:

My first wild guess to Lami's inspiration was Jarmin.  Now Jarmin only lasted up to episode 28 of Turboranger as episodes 27-29 wrote off Zimba, Jarmin and Rehda due to budget reasons (?).  Jarmin was presented to be what I'd call a really bitchy woman.  She also had a slight hint she was in a relationship with Zimba.  In episode 27, Zimba volunteered to finish off the Turborangers protecting her from Ragorn's wrath.  Like Lami, Jarmin revealed one thing, her human form was merely a disguise to her serpentine form.  She managed to split herself into two during her final battle and was destroyed by the Turbo Rugger when she fused her soul into her other half.  Perhaps her relationship with Zimba inspired the idea of Griforther being married to Lami.


Another possible inspiration is Dordora from Fiveman.  It wouldn't be all that surprising to see how concepts get copied so easily especially with this, Fiveman was the first 90s Sentai, Zyuranger was shown in 1992.  Dordora was trying to embody a lot of characteristics of Soda villains, she was deceptive like Farrah, she was like most female field commanders, relying on deceit to carry on a job while having some badass to beat you up.  She was also one to use disguises like Lami did.  It's also hinted that she has a relationship with Billion.
