This question just occured to me now. This is an old but extremely popular PR/SS debate: Would you think that MMPR season two would have been better off with the Dairanger Costumes?

Did you want MMPRS2 to be like this or like this?

I think it would of worked. The Dairanger suits are pretty cool and would've coniceded well with the new zords. They could've made Lord Zedd seem more evil by having him destroy the old powers, forcing the rangers to take up the new suits (minus Tommy, of course :))

Those were some SWEET suits, its really too bad they never got used on this side of the pacific.

I often wondered what it would've been like if they switched costumes. But I think at that point, none of us really knew Dairanger existed.

Hell yeah, that is what should have happened in Season 2 of MMPR.
I could definitely imagine Jason, Zack, & Trini in the Ryuu, Shishi, & Kirin rangers' outfits and then it would passed to Rocky, Adam & Aisha. That way, Saban would have put the Dairanger fight scenes to good use.

Except it was against FCC rules as being 'too violent' for kids in the US.

So any footage would have been heavily cut at best. And since this was Saban, home of cost-cutting and cheapo production values (per the actors), I imagine this would have been as bad as the whole Dinozord transformation into Thunderzord sequence.

Not that I had issues with it, but Doug Sloan combined "Dinosaurs" and "Ninjas"...can't get any better than that.:laugh:

The backlash is that...Power Ranger didn't fully utilize Kung Fu...with the exception of Trini then Adam and PR had to wait for 15+ years to finally utilize Kung Fu.

I could imagine Jason,Trini,Zack,Billy and Kimberly in the Ryuu,Kirin,Shishi,Temna and Houou suits as well as Rocky,Aisha and Adam in the Ryuu,Kirin and Shishi suits too.

It would have been nice, but people were not used to heroes changing suits in America yet. Think how long it takes Marvel or D.C. heroes to make costume modifications

How could I have missed this discussion?!

I was already shocked when I found out Power Rangers was just an American adaption of a Japanese series. But when I discovered Dairanger and glanced at the costumes, I was disappointed that they were never used. MMPR was just a fad, but can you imagine the impact it would have made on the series if the rangers had gotten new suits? After the Dinozords were destroyed, the rangers upgrade to Power of Thunder. Along with receiving new powers, the rangers also wear new suits depicting their mythical beasts as a sign of strength and courage. They call upon their zords with their Thunder Swords (lol) based on the name of the mythological creatures.

Tommy's surprise return can be left in tact. However, he should've became the leader after Jason left. Because in the Power Rangers universe, you would wonder why Zordon decided to demote him if he had stayed. It also messed up Rocky's potential as the red ranger.


You beat me to it.:p Watching those videos make me wanna "cry."

The Dairanger suits would have been awesome but we all know about the violent footage that assisted Dairanger and of course the fact that the kiddies were used to the Zyuranger suits and would have been "confused" had Dairanger suits been used.

Don't forget the scrapped ANCIENT RANGERS saga we were supposed to get in PRLG with the Dairanger footage. I guess it's the curse of Dairanger lol.
