"List of all Power Rangers episodes" should probably be somehow included with the episodes listed under "Key Episodes". Whereas combining the two makes sense, doing so as they are now would be kinda messy (i.e. "List of all Power Rangers episodes" shouldn't fall under a category called "Key Episodes" -- needs re-wording). Any suggestions? JPG-GR 06:39, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

I'll make some changes (since I don't know what they'll exactly be yet) and then maybe you can look them over? Ryūlóng 06:46, 10 September 2006 (UTC)
That looks good. The only thing that still causes an underlying irritation is having Zords in the see also section. It almost feels as if it goes with the "Characters", but on second glance, that seems downright silly. Other than that, it feels good. JPG-GR 18:12, 10 September 2006 (UTC)
Well, Zords don't really go anywhere else...that I can think of. Ryūlóng 01:02, 11 September 2006 (UTC)

Dino Thunder[edit]

I think there are too many dino thunder episodes on here can we come to a consensus to only about three on here. candyo32

Well, many fans believe Dino Thunder was important, seeing as they brought Tommy back. And this place isn't a very good place to make such suggestions. No one knows about this template. Ryūlóng 23:56, 18 September 2006 (UTC)
What template? I don't see no stinkin' template! ;) JPG-GR 22:16, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

Selection of Episodes[edit]

Going through this template, reading article to article, I feel there are some episodes lacking. The most glaring so far would have to be "A Zeo Beginning." As MMPR ended quite abruptly (and finally), it seems only logical to start it up again with an article on AZB. One could also make arguments for MVatMA. On the other hand, this is quite clearly a slippery slope, as nearly any 3+-parter could be article worthy, and I've no time to write any from scratch (and, perhaps more accurately, no time to dig out the appropriate tapes to re-watch). Just food for thought. JPG-GR 05:11, 28 September 2006 (UTC)

Just Wondering...[edit]

I was wondering, I'm pretty sure a good majority of the people here are aware of Power Rangers' parody, Mighty Moshin' Emo Rangers, but I don't see it listed on the template, even though it is a related series. I was wondering why and if it's because other people have not thought of it, I worked it out on my User Subpage here. So is there a reason why it is not included or am I the first to propose this change? スミス ナサニアル 02:40, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

New template Disney Era and Saban Era[edit]

I made the television series into two sections Disney and Saban Because these two eras are different that they are made by two Companies so there.Remake it but dont delete it .RYULONG —Preceding unsigned comment added by Martytholath2 (talkcontribs) 11:44, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

We do not need to differentiate between companies or anything because there is not enough of different series mentioned here to require as such. We don't need to use an arbitrary division just because it exists (when Power Rangers starts getting to the extent of existence as its Japanese counterpart, then we change it).—Ryūlóng (竜龍) 19:48, 13 September 2007 (UTC)
I'd say never change it. I know this discussion was held a year ago, but I think it should stay the way it is now to no end. Mythdon (talkcontribs) 09:36, 9 October 2008 (UTC)
This thread is over one year old, Mythdon.—Ryūlóng (竜龙) 02:54, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
That is why I said "I know this discussion was held a year ago". I don't know if you have the same opinion you had back then, but I believe we should never group sections of "Saban" and "Disney" on this template as that information is fully mentioned on Power Rangers and related articles. I believe it should stay the way it is now to no ends. Mythdon (talkcontribs) 06:59, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

Half Italic Text[edit]

Is there a specific reason that half the text is in italic text? also i think that colour of it should be changed partly because that green dosn't look that good and also styling the navbox's (applying css to them (the way you did the colour) is not recommend as per Template:Navbox. Peachey88 (Talk Page | Contribs) 10:50, 14 October 2007 (UTC)

Kamen Rider Dragon Knight[edit]

I can't see any reason for not including Dragon Knight here. Being a adaptation of a Toei series, it's more related to PR than Super Human Samurai (a Tsubuyara series adapted by DIC) and Tattooed Teenage Alien Fighters (a all-american production). Deleting KRDK doesn't look a very coherent move.-- Black Condor 14:26, 16 December 2007 (UTC)

Dragon Knight is an entity separate from Power Rangers. SSSS and Alien Fighters were actually around during the initial popularity in Power Rangers in the early 90s, and were competition. Until Dragon Knight airs, it is really only necessary for mention in the context of other Kamen Rider series.—Ryūlóng (竜龍) 23:43, 16 December 2007 (UTC)

Well, I still can't see your point here. The "competition" claim is a very vague thing, IMO. There's a lot of other series that can fill this gasp. About the PR popularity in the 90's, it's very unlikely people doing a adaptation of Ryuki without this initial success, and PR still is a moderated sucessful series. This is enought to make Dragon Knight a related series to PR - not counting the Toei thing, this is somewhat relevant. That's my two cents about it. By the way, I respect your point of view, but I don't see this necessarily as a "really necessary" thing to do. It can be, but can't be as well. Only constructive criticism, don't take me wrong. -- Black Condor 03:46, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

Dragon Knight I just don't see as related to Power Rangers as some of the other non-Saban produced series are. Of course, this may change once the show comes on TV and we see if it is connected, enough. Sure it's a Toei production, but I don't know if that's enough yet.—Ryūlóng (竜龍) 04:26, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

Individual season templates[edit]

I would like to make templates for each season (except MMPR, PRZ, PRT and PRIS) of Power Rangers. Like their is templates for some of the Super Sentai seasons. Mythdon (talk) 02:40, 26 December 2007 (UTC)

It's not really all that necessary, I think. With Power Rangers, everything's listed on a single template at the bottom. The various items in Sentai series weren't.—Ryūlóng (竜龍) 02:48, 26 December 2007 (UTC)
Well i wasn't really believing it would actually be accepted anyway. And your right, Power Rangers shows everything in a single template, Super Sentai does not. Mythdon (talk) 06:36, 26 December 2007 (UTC)

Template color change[edit]

I think the color of this template is unencyclopedic in style and i think the color should be changed. I think it should be changed to a sorta light purplish blue. Mythdon (talk) 01:37, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

How can color be unencyclopedic?—Ryūlóng (竜龍) 02:50, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

Well the color being used for this template looks like it is a color not used on most templates and i think it should be changed to this. I have copied the templates source and changed its color

. Mythdon (talk) 03:38, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

The colors used on templates such as these were foricbly chosen to be made the same for uniformity within the project. The uniformity is not mandatory and is why this template was never those colors to begin with. The colors used here may not be the same as used on every other navigation box, but the colors are not meant to be the same (which is why they can be changed). Also, "television color" is not a color that works on the template. Its use defaults to the color that is programed into the original template.—Ryūlóng (竜龍) 04:03, 27 December 2007 (UTC)
I guess its also this color to associate with the Saban era Power Rangers logo right?. Mythdon (talk) 04:13, 27 December 2007 (UTC)
I just know the color is established as for this template.—Ryūlóng (竜龍) 07:16, 27 December 2007 (UTC)
The color i suggested looks worse anyway. The "lightblue" is better anyway as it associates with the Saban era logo. Mythdon (talk) 00:48, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

"Other related"[edit]

I took the liberty to remove the "Other Related Series" from the chart. This is the only template that I've seen that includes competitive and parody items within the template. It'd be like including the Wü and the PlayStation3 in the Nintendo Wii Template. If anyone disagrees and there's a consensus otherwise, they can always be added back in. TheUncleBob (talk) 00:16, 31 May 2008 (UTC)

Emo Rangers should have probably stayed, seeing as it is the only notable parody with an article. SSSS is covered by the Ultra Series template, and Alien Fighters doesn't really fit in anywhere.—Ryūlóng (竜龙) 00:33, 31 May 2008 (UTC)

Alien Rangers[edit]

Alien Rangers should be removed from this template, or at least have it's position changed. First, even when advertised way back when, it was advertised as mini-series. Second, there has never been anything to substantiated it as a season. All current anniversary merchandise doesn't include it as a series. It's misleading to leave it on the template under the series heading. As such, maybe there should be a "mini-series" category. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Zero X Marquis (talkcontribs) 22:36, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

Okay, because I'm getting sick of going back and forth, I'm going to bring this up one last time. Alien Rangers is not a television series, no more so than any other Power Rangers mini-series. It had a special intro, I'll give you that, but it's production numbering did not change from season 3. Also, it was advertised as a mini-series, and is not classified as a series under any official merchandise or website. To leave it as is is faulty. If it is to remain on the template, fine, but out of convenience of navigation is not a valid reason. Leaving it as is is misleading to say the least - it isn't a series, so it shouldn't be classified as one. Zero X Marquis (talk) 07:12, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

Mighty Morphin Alien Rangers was not a full television series, yes, and it was a miniseries, yes. However, It being a transition between MMPR and Zeo as well as having its own "separate" theme song makes it different from other miniseries in Power Rangers (of which Green with Evil was not). As this is a navigational template, and its content cannot really be merged and dealt with, it should be left amongst the other "television series" instead of creating a new separate category for it, as it certainly came between MMPR and Zeo, had a separate title sequence, and whatnot. I know that this thing will probably be debated to hell and back on various websites, but here it is placed where it is as a navigation issue. There are also several articles that need work. However this template should be minimal compared to the rest.—Ryūlóng (竜龙) 07:17, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
This seems like it should have a fairly easy solution. Why not change the template top something like...

It would allow Alien Rangers to stay on the template, but also denote to the casual reader that it's a sub-relation to the initial MMPR series and not a series of its own. Just a thought. TheUncleBob (talk) 20:48, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

I'll impliment this change, as it seems to be the proper method (rather than giving undue weight to the Green with Evil story arc whose article is horribly written).—Ryūlóng (竜龙) 20:51, 20 July 2008 (UTC)
Glad I could help. :) TheUncleBob (talk) 00:54, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers World Tour Live on Stage[edit]

Out of curiosity isn't the play "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers World Tour Live on Stage" important enough to list in the template along with the other media category lists (Television Series, Movies and Video Games)? (talk) 06:33, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

Because it's pointless to have just one entry for one such item.—Ryūlóng (竜龙) 06:41, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

Edit request on 27 February 2013[edit]

A link to Morphing Grid should be included on the template. (talk) 13:42, 27 February 2013 (UTC)

No, because the article should not have been changed from a redirect. It is an in-universe term that has no real world notability.—Ryulong (琉竜) 00:21, 28 February 2013 (UTC)

Edit request on 18 March 2013[edit]

Adding the Super Samurai Kinect game to the video games list (2012) [1]

It was released in the UK Jan 2013, but in the US November 2012

While we're at it, I suppose the Power Rangers Legends iOS game can be added too. Not sure when that was released though. December 2012 I think. LuigiEspadachin (talk) 09:26, 18 March 2013 (UTC)

We only cover notable games. Not every single game that there is.—Ryulong (琉竜) 10:29, 18 March 2013 (UTC)

Link to List of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers home media releases[edit]

I've removed this from the template multiple times due to Bumblebee9999's insistence that it belongs here. I have explained in the edit summaries and on his talk page multiple times as to why it does not and particularly why it does not in the section he's put it in. Regardless of the results of the AFD, this is a navigation template for general Power Rangers pages. Links to more specific entries like the individual series character lists or articles are on other pages. A page just on the DVDs for MMPR has no place on this template and particularly not in the list of other related media. The link on the MMPR page is fine. Unless the article is turned into one on all Power Rangers home media, then it doesn't need to be listed on this template.—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 09:25, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

@Bumblebee9999: And let me address all of the points that you keep posting in the wrong space. This is a template for navigation amongst the general Power Rangers pages. A link to a list of the VHS and DVD releases of just one of the TV series is not a valid link to have on this template. And it does not belong in the "See also" section if it were to be kept. If that page gets turned into a list of VHS and DVD releases for the past 21 years of Power Rangers then it belongs on this template and then it goes into the "Miscellany" section as I had put it in in an attempt to show good faith that it's a valid link to have on this page. If it's just MMPR, then all we need is a link on the MMPR page like we do for the character pages, character lists, and episode lists.—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 11:14, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

S.H.E Rangers[edit]

Can I have put S.H.E for See also please? Yawyawkam (talk) 13:08, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

Era names[edit]

In the fan community, Power Rangers has been divided up into three major eras based on production.

  • The Saban Era (further sub divided into the Zordon and Post-Zordon eras) covers all productions by Saban Entertainment from 1993 to 2002, including everything from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers to Power Rangers Wild Force.
  • The Disney Era is all new productions under the Walt Disney Company from 2003 to 2010. This includes everything between Ninja Storm and RPM, along with the MMPR "re-visioned" season.
  • The Neo Saban Era is all productions of Power Rangers under Saban Brands beginning with Samurai in 2011.

Neither Saban nor Disney officially recognizes these names because... well they don't care and choose not to provide any official statements or sources for this. These names have been accepted by the fan community as ways of dividing the production of the series based on various criteria.

In short, the template should list the the three eras as Saban, Disney, and Neo-Saban. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rick lay95 (talkcontribs)

Hi Rick! Sorry for the late reply. If Saban and Disney, as well as a majority of the fanbase, do not officially recognize it it should not be listed as a category. In addition, you told me that it was an official term but now you are telling me it's a term used by the fan community. You haven't really provided a sensible reason that "Neo-Saban" is a valid term either. If it's not used in reliable sources according to Wikipedia's rules on reliable sources then it's not a piece of terminology that should be used here.--OuendanL (talk) 08:00, 29 June 2016 (UTC)

Beast Morphers and Super Beast Morphers (2019-2020)[edit]

Given How Nickelodeon is now airing the series, it would make sense to put it that way. (talk) 14:27, 20 February 2018 (UTC)

 Not done: This template is organized by which company owns the Power Rangers franchise, not by broadcast network. The articles on the individual series do state that they are originally broadcast on Nickelodeon. —KuyaBriBriTalk 15:17, 20 February 2018 (UTC)
On a more relevant note, stating how Power Rangers seasons have been handled in the past on Nickelodeon isn't a sure fire method to assume that they will continue to handle them in that manner in the future. Case in point, Nickelodeon usually renews Power Rangers for an even number of seasons (sometimes two seasons at a time, sometimes four season at a time). This time however they renewed the show for an odd number of seasons (three seasons to be precise). Combine that with Hasbro replacing Bandai toy wise (its believed the whole "Super" thing is a result of Bandai wanting the toys renamed every year for marketing purposes). Given these changes its way too soon to assume things will play out the way they have in the past and we'll get a Super Beast Morphers. If evidence comes to light later on that it does get a Super counterpart, the listing can always be changed at that time. Not before then. (talk) 09:04, 6 March 2018 (UTC)

Beast Morphers[edit]

Given how nickelodeon has been airing the series for the past 8 years it would make sense for Beast Morphers to also have Super Beast Morphers and to run from 2019-2020. Just a suggestion. (talk) 21:29, 9 March 2018 (UTC)

 Not done: please provide reliable sources that support the change you want to be made. Eggishorn (talk) (contrib) 15:19, 11 March 2018 (UTC)

Why is Wild Force listed as a Saban season?[edit]

Sure, it was still filmed in the US and was still produced by MMPR Productions, but Disney bought the franchise in 2001 before Wild Force even came out. Why is it listed as a Saban season and not a Disney season? —Mythdon 17:20, 21 April 2018 (UTC)

Assume it is just confusion. This blog post says people mix it up. [2] I'll change it anyway. --Emir of Wikipedia (talk) 18:32, 21 April 2018 (UTC)
Nope, wasn't confusion. Cognitive bias perhaps, but definitely not confusion. I had moved Wild Force once or twice myself under the Disney sub-section back when the sub-sections of Saban Entertainment, Disney and Saban Brands were first set up. It kept getting blow-back and reversed to the Saban Entertainment sub-section due to the insistence that Disney owning it didn't matter because being "still filmed in California" and "being produced by MMPR Productions" automatically superseded Disney's ownership to make it a Saban Entertainment season. The edit war just wasn't worth the effort at the time. If we want to get real technical in terms of accuracy, the 2010 re-version season of MMPR should probably also be listed under Disney and not Saban Entertainment since the superficial alterations done to MMPR Season 1 to create the MMPR 2010 re-version season were done by Disney and not Saban Entertainment (despite Saban Entertainment having filmed MMPR Season 1). With that said, I think that the 2010 re-version probably should remain listed under Saban Entertainment as an odd exception to the rule because of the awkward/superficial situation of what it is. Otherwise the template would look kind of odd having MMPR listed under two sub-sections. (talk) 13:53, 27 April 2018 (UTC)
Thanks IP for clarifying the situation. With regards to the re-version let's see if anyone else has anything to say. Emir of Wikipedia (talk) 19:30, 27 April 2018 (UTC)
Speaking of blow-back, Wild Force just got moved back under the Saban Entertainment section by user Spike Russell. His reasoning for the move, he listed the "still filmed in California" and "being produced by MMPR Productions" stuff. (talk) 15:40, 1 May 2018 (UTC)
