Notes

  • Mao Ichimichi is the first actress to play two main team Rangers and the first actor overall to play two main team Rangers since Jyunichi Haruta (GoggleBlack/DynaBlack) though her second ranger, Raptor 283, was voice only.
    • She is also the first actress whose rangers from different series meet face-to-face untransformed (second overall after Kenji Ohba).
  • Due to her other roles, she is the only Gokaiger actor to continue to appear in Super Sentai alongside at least one actor from each Sentai (as their Ranger) through Mashin Sentai Kiramager.
  • Ciara Hanna (who played Ichimichi's counterpart Gia Moran) expressed interest in playing a Raptor 283 counterpart should Kyuranger be adapted for Power Rangers. Should this happen, it would be the first instance of two different rangers played by the same actor with counterparts also being played by the same actor.
