A Lion's Alliance is the fourth episode of Power Rangers Super Megaforce, the second season of Power Rangers Megaforce. This episode is a tribute to Power Rangers Wild Force and features the return of the Red Lion Zord and the debut of Legendary Wild Force Megazord.

Synopsis

Determined to strengthen their defense against the Armada, the Rangers head to a mystical airborne island named Animaria in search of the wild yet powerful Red Lion Zord.

Plot

The episode begins with the Rangers in their Legendary Megazord taking out some alien ships fleeing from the city. When they finish and return to the lair, Gosei congratulates them on their victories but tells them to get some help so they grow stronger. As per today's mission, Gosei tells them to go to a floating turtle-shaped island to find what is called the Red Lion. They leave in their Megazord to go find it.

It takes the Rangers hours to find it. They see something strange and go to see what it is. Meanwhile, the Armada have been tracking the Rangers and deduce there is something important on the island, so they go after it to get it before the Rangers do. They send a ship to attack the Rangers' and they crash land on the island.

After the Rangers finish fighting General Peluso and his army, they go to find the Red Lion. But the Armada keeps bugging them, so they have to remain morphed. While they are still fighting, the Red Lion appears on its rock. Not trusting anyone, the Zord knocks everyone, including the Rangers, off the island. Prince Vekar catches Damaras making plans behind his back to catch the Red Lion, so he sends Argus to announce a change in plans.

As the Rangers are figuring out how to prove themselves to the Red Lion, Peluso and the X Borgs are seen attacking the humans. As they handle the monsters and rescue the civilians, they realize that it is a distraction to keep them from getting to the Red Lion. Still needing to prove themselves worthy to the Red Lion, the Rangers morph into Wild Force mode. Using this, they defeat the Bruisers and Peluso. When Levira grows them, the Rangers are able to call upon the Red Lion Zord for assistance. They combine their Megazord with it and use it to defeat Peluso.

The Rangers wish the Red Lion well as they depart for home.

Legendary Ranger Modes

Errors

  • The Gokaigers as the Turborangers are visible in the shot where the Rangers are sent flying off the island. This is the first appearance of the Turborangers in the Power Rangers franchise, uncredited or not. [1]
  • The camera crew is visible in Emma's White Wild Force Ranger visor.[2]
    • In a similar error that occurs in the close up of Jake, studio equipment is seen off his visor.

  • The Animarium is mistakenly just called Animaria by both Gosei and the Rangers, and not only that, the name 'Animaria' is mispronounced by all who say it in the episode. 
  • During the second Wild Force transformation, an after effect of an explosion flashes on screen. This is due to the poor removal of the Gao kanji from the Sentai footage.
  • When the Rangers energize their blasters, if the viewers listen carefully, the song appears to change to the Samurai song for a brief moment, judging by the sudden change of tune. This however if very difficult to notice.
  • When Troy, and Jake talk to General Peluso, as he appears in front of them, there appears to be a huge tear on his behind. Yet moments later during the battle it mysteriously disappears.
  • In the close up of Troy, with the Wild Force Red Key, the reflection of the city can be seen off his visor, even though the Rangers are on the Animarium, which is practically an entire jungle.
    • Also the shadow of crew workers can be seen.
  • After morphing into Wild Force, the Rangers are right next to each other. But the next scene they've not only switched places, but Jake, Noah, and Gia are behind Troy and Emma.
  • After the second commercial break, the Rangers are again looking up at Red Lion, but are much further apart, compared to before the break.
  • Somehow, everyone ends up in different locations, after they fall off of the Animarium. Even though they were altogether when they fell.
  • Jake is seen tumbling off the truck loaded with boxes first, even though Emma landed on them first.

Notes

  • This is the only appearance of
    • Super Megaforce Blue Ranger's Black Dino Ranger form.
    • Super Megaforce Yellow Ranger's Black Alien Ranger.
    • Super Megaforce Green Ranger's Black Wild Force Ranger.
    • Super Megaforce Pink Ranger's White Wild Force Ranger.
  • This is the first episode to feature the Animarium since The End of the Power Rangers Part 2.
  • Though primarily an adaptation of episode 9 of Gokaiger, the footage of the Black Ranger Legendary Ranger Mode comes from episode 3, which featured the unlocking of the Mystic Force (Magiranger) power, which was used in the previous episode. A White Ranger change appeared in addition to the Black Ranger change in the original episode, however, it was unusable due to Gokai Blue and Gokai Pink changing into White Rangers from two unadapted series, while Gokai Yellow changed into, ironically considering the primary focus of this episode, the counterpart of the White Wild Force Ranger.
  • This is the episode that breaks the streak of every episode having an S.P.D change, however, the Legendary S.P.D. Megazord is featured heavily in the opening sequence.
  • The whereabouts of Princess Shayla and the other Wild Zords, who were last seen on the Animarium, is never addressed. That being said, this was also never brought up in the source material.
  • Troy only appears unmorphed very briefly in the opening scene. Moreover, some of his dialogue is recycled in this episode, most notably his line 'Rangers, that's a super mega win' appears twice. This is possibly because Andrew Gray was unavailable for filming.
  • Throughout the episode, the Animarium is referred to as Animaria by the Rangers and Gosei. Many fans believe this to be incorrect as in Power Rangers Wild Force it is referred exclusively as the Animarium. However, it is not technically a mistake as the Animarium is itself part of a larger kingdom called Animaria.
    • It was, however, consistently mispronounced. Therefore, "aria" (pronounced AR-ee-uh) means "air" in Italian. That's because it was a floating island.
  • This episode's title is a play on homonyms, as "A Lion's" is pronounced similar to "Alliance".
