|This article is about a/an set of rangers in the Super Sentai series.|
Super Rangers (スーパーレンジャー Sūpā Renjā), also referred to as Power Up Warriors (パワーアップ戦士 Pawāappu Senshi), is a term referring collectively to Super Sentai Rangers in super forms. There are several kinds of super forms, some involve having single members of the core team transform, or the entirety. Some are exclusive to sixth rangers.
The term "Super Rangers" was officially used in the finale episode of Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger, "Farewell Space Pirates". When the Gokaigers used an all-super form Gokai Change, the Mobirates (and the Gokai Cellular) call out "Suuuuper Ranger!"
The concept of super modes for the Rangers was introduced in the first Super Sentai series, Himitsu Sentai Gorenger, with the New Gorenger suits. However, there was no physical difference between the suits, the only real difference being a change in the Gorengers' weapons.
Prior to the advent of the Super Rangers, several earlier Sentai heroes used Power Protectors, including Ryuu Hoshikawa (DynaBlack) and his "Battle Tector" and the Five Tector of the Hoshikawa siblings of Fiveman. While rare since the advent of Sentai Super modes, some teams such as the Boukenger still use Power Protectors instead of full Super modes.
Note: These forms are accessible via power from outer sources and not accessed by the users themselves.
- Armed Mode is a form taken by the Kyoryugers. However, it is not counted as a Super Ranger form, rather an extension form used to access weapons (other than the Gaburivolver). This is acknowledged by the arcade game Super Sentai Battle: Dice-O, whose website includes Armed On on the pages of the Kyoryugers rather than creating seperate pages as is done with Rangers and their Super Ranger forms.
