|This article is about a/an set of rangers in Power Rangers Jungle Fury.|
The Spirit Rangers are created by the Phantom Beasts from the three Pai Zhuq Masters, Master Phant, Master Swoop and Master Finn. They were created by the Phantom Beasts to battle the Jungle Fury Rangers by using the Crystal Eyes and controlling the Masters. Once the Masters were freed from the Crystal Eyes, they fought alongside the rangers by controlling the bodies. They later on gave the rangers control of the Spirit Rangers by way of summoning their animal spirits to fight alongside them. In the Final Beast War, the Spirit Rangers fight alongside the masters that inspired them and the Jungle Fury Power Rangers.

In their first appearance they battled the Jungle Fury Rangers under the control of the Phantom Beasts. Later on RJ figures out how to jam the frequencies that connect the Masters to the Spirit Rangers and is able to dissipate the spirits. Later RJ modifies the claw cannon to hold the spirits of the Elephant, Bat and Shark Animal Spirits and uses it to cancel out the spirit of the Shark Spirit Ranger, which traps Master Finn inside one of the Crystal Eyes. Flit salvages the eye after a Phantom Beast attempts to throw it in the sea and brings it to RJ. Soon after, all the masters are rescued and the Spirit Rangers they control fight alongside the Jungle Fury Rangers. The masters then let the rangers take control of the Spirit Rangers, which they summon into battle in pinch situations (Red = Shark, Blue = Bat, Yellow = Elephant).

The Spirit Rangers came about during a meeting about toys. Marchand pitched the idea of making the three masters into Rangers, rather than do more motorcycle toys: previous experience, going back to Tommy, had shown kids enjoyed having extra Rangers to play with. 
Bandai first released several Spirit Ranger figures in the Jungle Fury toyline meant to serve as pilot to the Roar Max Zords. The comic that goes with the figures states that the Masters were Rangers 20 years ago and are now inhabiting beast bodies. In the comic they are now training the Jungle Fury Rangers in place of their masters in the show, though in appearance they resemble the Kensei from Juken Sentai Gekiranger, the source material of Jungle Fury.
Fans debated whether the Spirit Rangers would appear on the show. When the Shark, Elephant and Bat Zords appeared in Power Rangers Jungle Fury without Rangers piloting them, it became apparent that there would indeed be no Rangers outside of those seen in Gekiranger, the show's Japanese counterpart. However, months later Terebi Kun, a Japanese magazine published photos in two consecutive issues with all three rangers in Jungle Master Mode outfits. Soon, summaries that support the photos appeared, beginning with that for "Fear and the Phantoms".
