Behind every Samurai, there are more than just one story...


2014. From strength to strength, from Samurai to Super Samurai!


Power Rangers Samurai is the eighteenth season of the American children's television series Power Rangers. With Saban Brands buying back the franchise, the show is produced by SCG Power Rangers and began airing on Nickelodeon and Nicktoons on February 7, 2011, making it the first to use the Saban name since the first half of "Power Rangers: Wild Force. As with all Power Rangers programs, Power Rangers Samurai is based on one of the entries of the Super Sentai Series; in the case of Samurai, the source series is Samurai Sentai Shinkenger.


"Centuries ago in Japan, Nighlok monsters invaded our world. But Samurai warriors defeated them with power symbols passed down from parent to child. Today, these evil Nighlok has risen once again and plan to flood the earth. Luckily, a new generation of heroes stand in their way. They are the Power Rangers Samurai..."


Jayden Shiba is a young man descended from the Red Ranger Shiba family. He was raised since childhood by Mentor Ji after his father gave him the Lion Folding Zord before his final battle. He is the 18th leader of the Samurai Power Rangers. Jayden is generally calm and serious, though he considers others' feelings and is willing to do anything to help his friends.


Being the only Ranger that can master a special sealing character that can seal away the leader of the Nighloks: Master Xandred, the other Power Rangers are very protective of Jayden and are often willing to put themselves in harms way for his safety, which constantly troubles him. As the series progress he becomes more open with them and accepts the fact that they are a team.


Kevin is a young man who gave up his dream of swimming in the Olympics to become the Blue Samurai Ranger. Due to his strict upbringing, he is extremely enthusiastic and takes his ranger duties seriously. His fierce loyalty and enthusiasm brings much comic relief. He lives a very disciplined lifestyle and is never late due to his self-planned daily training schedule.


Kevin is the closest in terms of skill to Jayden. As such Kevin is typically the one to lead the other Rangers in Jayden's absence. Kevin is also the engineer behind many of the Samurai Combinations, having figured out how to combine the Samurai Battlewing with the Megazord.


Mia Watanabe is a strong-willed girl who acts as the big sister to the team. She loves children and worked at an orphanage prior to becoming the Pink Samurai Ranger. Though she is a terrible cook, Mia tries her best in order to achieve her dreams and she thinks her cooking is brilliant. Mia's maturity and optimism brings the team together and comforts any one of them that's feeling down.


As the Pink Samurai Ranger, Mia is the Samurai of Sky and her personal weapon is the Sky Fan. She pilots the Turtle Folding Zord. She also acts as an idol to Emily, who wants to be more like her.


Mike is an avid video gamer and the lazy rebel of the group. He is very close friends to Kevin and Emily. Mike also wants to be as strong as Jayden therefore sometimes trains rigorously to improve his skills. He can also be somewhat cocky and tends to joke around, but he is kind and usually means well. While Mike is not as skilled as Jayden and Kevin, Mike is very crafty and tricky sometimes outwitting what would otherwise be a difficult enemy. His creativity is what allows him to defeat tough opponents.


As the Green Ranger, he is the Samurai of the Forest and his personal weapon is the Forest Spear. He pilots the Bear Folding Zord and the Beetle Zord. He often clashes with Kevin; however' they are still the best of friends. He respects Kevin's stronger technique but will often deny it. Mentor Ji had trouble training him at first due to his lifestyle, but later they become more cooperative and Mike improves his Symbol Power, allowing him to access the powers of the Beetle Disk.


Emily is a country girl who becomes a Ranger by chance. She is close to her older sister Serena who had been training to be the Yellow Samurai Ranger. When Serena became ill, Emily stepped up to take her place. Emily is deeply respectful of Jayden and wants to help the team in any way she can.


Emily has rather low self-esteem; she genuinely believes that she is clumsy and not fit to be a Ranger. Emily used an old saying "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me" to help her get through her childhood. She can also be seen playing a flute, due to her sister playing a flute to make her feel better every time someone picked on her. She idolizes Mia and strives to become more like her. As the series progresses, she becomes more confident and braver and no longer doubts herself or her abilities.


Antonio Garcia is a fisherman and the tech wizard of the group. He happened to be a childhood friend of Jayden, training alongside him and receiving the Octozord from him and making a promise to aid him as a Samurai. He is considered to be Jayden's opposite, being hyperactive and expressive as Jayden is reserved and stoic. He is the only member of the Samurai Rangers who is not of Samurai descent.


With his technological skills Antonio created his own Morpher out of a trashed cellphone and by reverse engineering the Octozord. He also developed a way to channel symbol power through texting on his Morpher which allowed him to communicate with the Octozord. He is a very skilled cook, primarily with sea food, and will regularly prepare meals for the team. He is also shown to be a very skilled singer and guitar player.


Rangers Together, Samurai Forever!
