Okay, I think we have a new winner for the stupidest-looking Ranger power-up ever.
Actually, that would be the battlizer from Lightspeed Rescue, IMO. It has the giant protruding chest armor, and then some.
Granted, that's a little unwieldy, but it's not as bad as these. The chest piece is more tapered and doesn't seem to interfere with movement nearly as much. And it isn't alive and moving
. And it doesn't have a stupid-looking sword with a big plastic globe on the pommel. It's the double awkwardness of the armor with the big unnecessary piece getting in the way combined with the sword with the big unnecessary piece getting in the way that really pushes it over the top.
