Zyuranger/Dairanger Similarities

Both Zyuranger and Dairanger though having different stories shared some similarities considering the head writer was Noboru Sugimura.  Takeyuki Suzuki was the producer of both shows.

Character settings- Although the Zyurangers and Dairangers were different personality-wise but one can see some of these similarities:


Both Zyuranger and Dairange had a mentor with a history with the enemy faction.  Zyuranger had the wizard Barza, Dairanger had Master Kaku.  It's later revealed that Master Kaku had a past with the Gorma itself.


Geki and Ryou are both the young leaders with humongous mecha than the rest of the group.


Goushi and Daigo are the knowledgeable but not necessarily witty ones (most of the witty rangers are from the female rangers).



Both Dan and Shouji are the impulsive blue...


Both Mei and Lin were pink rangers who looked tougher than they look.  Mei battled Lami while Lin battled Lt. Gara in battle.  Both Lami and Gara were also mistresses of the use of deception.


Both shows had six members.  Now nothing similar between Burai and Kou except that they are sixth members.  Hisashi Sakai prior to becoming Kibaranger played the younger Burai in Zyuranger.  Jason David Frank's character as Tommy would later be the counterpart of both characters.


The Bandora Gang and Gorma are ancient menace that returned to the modern day.  While both have different structures but both had a mistress of deceit in each group.  Lt. Col. Gara was their mistress of deceit while the Bandora Gang had Lamie, both battling pink rangers.  But that's just it.

Zyuranger and Dairanger had some similarities in their mecha as:


The mecha.  Zyuranger and Dairanger had the following similarities...


The red rangers piloted a mecha bigger than the rest.  The Tyranosaurus in Zyuranger was able to destroy the first enlarged monster (Dora Titan) wit the Tyrano Sonic.  Ryuuseioh was able to destroy the first enlarged monster Baron String.  Later they needed to combine with their fellow mecha to form the main robot.  Daizyujin was formed to defeat Dora Sphinx, Dairenou was formed to destroy High Priest Saw.


The pink rangers both piloted a flying mecha.  Pteranodon and Phoenix were flying mecha.



Yet another similarity.  The mecha of the blue rangers and yellow rangers form two different sets of legs.  In the case of Dairenou, the blue ranger's mecha is on the left side and the yellow ranger's mecha is on the right side of the mecha in contrast to Daizyujin's combination.


Sixth ranger arrives with humongous mecha.  Zyuranger had Dragon Caesar.  Dairanger had Won Tiger.


Dragon Caesar could combine with Mammoth, Triceratops and Sabertooth Tiger to form Gouryujin.  Won Tiger could combine with Shishi, Tenma, Kirin and Houou to form Kibadaioh.


Both shows presented the carrier mechas.  Zyuranger had King Brachion, Dairanger had Daimugen.  Both these mecha combined with the rest to form their ultimate combinations namely Kyukyoku Daizyujin and Heavenly Armor Chi Palace.  Kyukyoku Daizyujin fired the Grand Vanisher while Heavenly Armor Chi Palace did a rather daring stunt by dropping down on its enemies from high altitutde.

Name any more?  Just add!

  2. You also forgot to add. More main character similarities.
    Ryou/Geki- both young, strong leaders with hearts that is powered by their element of Fire. And of course their animal are reptile based.

    Daigo/Goshi- the second in command and the one that relies mostly on Wisdom.

    Shoji/Dan- the young if not brash and imulsive blue. They two are best friends with Yellow and the two have intimate eyes for Pink.
