Gonna look up the story behind that.

And you asked at just the right time Jirin. The current season is a build-up to all the Rangers banding together to fight a war. Several cast members from the last two decades will be back.

Re: Power Rangers

^Cosplay has its hazards. Once at New York Comic-Con, I was just walking down the aisle minding my business, and I got conked on the head by the ear of a giant Pikachu.

But if you sit in one place long enough, you will inevitably see at least one of every variety of Harley Quinn go by.

Re: Power Rangers

^Weren't the Psycho Rangers more monsters than Rangers per se? IIRC, they weren't even real people, just some sort of twisted duplicate. And there was something earlier, in MMPR, I think, where Zedd recruited a team of teens to be evil Rangers in costumes duplicating the heroes' costumes, and they don't get counted.

Re: Power Rangers

^ I should have counted the Dark Rangers and forgot to do so. I also should've counted the Wild West Rangers and didn't.

As for the Psychos, 3 of them - Red, Yellow, and Black - did have human forms, or at least human-form disguises, as seen in the episode Silence is Golden. Plus, the word 'Ranger' is actually part of their codename, which makes them count 'by default'.

Including the Dark Rangers - Justin, Zane, Bobby, Tina, and Kristen - and Wild West Rangers - Rocko, Abraham, William, and (Miss) Alicia - brings the total up to 139.

But the "Wild West Rangers" were just the main cast members playing their own implausibly identical ancestors, Back to the Future-style.

Re: Power Rangers

^ They still had distinct names and therefore count as individuals and as individual Power Rangers.

Re: Power Rangers

In-story, yes, but I was clarifying their status for readers who might not know who they were. If you were counting the actors who have played Power Rangers (not counting stunt performers and voiceover artists), the number would be substantially lower than if you're counting the characters.

If you really wanted to get ultra-thorough, there were also several incarnations of the franchise where we got brief glimpses of ancient, ancestral Rangers from whom the main characters inherited the legacy -- I think MMPR, Wild Force, and Samurai are all examples of this. Most of them were never named or seen out of uniform, but I'm pretty sure we saw Jayden's father as the Red Samurai Ranger in a flashback or two, so he'd have to be counted.

^^ And don't leave out the Turbo 2.5 Robot Rangers of Justin, TJ, Carlos, Ashley, and Cassie,, that Demetria created and sent off into space to aid Zordon.

The 17th Samurai team and Sky's father should count, but we don't have names - official or otherwise - for them, and I didn't want to keep writing 'so-and-so's father/mother'.

As far as 'ancient Rangers' are concerned, there was never any indication that the warriors who fought battles against evil in ages past, such as the Morphin Masters or Merrick's ancient compatriots, were in fact Rangers.
