Plot

In the Hayate's Way Ninja Academy, three of its pupils aren't exactly fitting in. But because their Sensei believes them to have potential, he regularly spends the morning personally subjecting them to rigorous training. While the other students are having their graduation ceremony, a group of evil space ninja known as the Jakanja infiltrated the school, killing most of the students. The school's Sensei, Mugensai, turned himself into a hamster to evade his pursuers. The trio was then taken to a secret base to become the legendary Hurricanegers to fight the Jakanja. But they also had to deal with the two ninja brothers of the Ikazuchi's Way Ninja Academy for a while because the Gouraigers were searching for the Evil Force that Jakanja was searching for. But once the Gouraigers abandoned their mad quest, they joined forces with the Hurricanegers.

Notes

  • The South Korean Power Rangers dub skipped ahead from Power Rangers Wild Force to Abaranger, omitting both Hurricaneger and Power Rangers Ninja Storm, South Korea in the Korean dub of Gokaiger dubbed in South Korea, Power Rangers Captain Force, Hurricaneger is called Power Rangers Ninja Storm, The members were renamed as StormRed (HurricaneRed), StormBlue (HurricaneBlue), StormYellow (HurricaneYellow), StormGreen (Shurikenger), respectively.
  • Hurricaneger (ハリケンジャー Harikenjā) has several meanings.
    • It is basically made of the word Hurricane (ハリケン Hariken) with the word Ranger (レンジャー Renjā) shorted to -ger (ジャー ) to avoid the title from having too many syllables. Indeed, the series is based on ninjas who are being like a violent wind, in opposition to Ninja Sentai Kakuranger, based on hiding, and Shuriken Sentai Ninninger, based on shurikens. Plus, the leader (HurricaneRed) has powers based on air and wind.
    • -ricane (リケン Riken) is a shortcut to Shuriken (シュケン Shuriken) a typical ninja weapon, the word is used in Shurikenger (シュリケンジャー Shurikenjā)and later used in Shuriken Sentai Ninninger title.
    • We can find the word for Wise Person (ケンジャ Kenja), that is related to the wiseness of a ninja. Plus, the kanji for Practicer, Type of Person (ジャ Ja) is in it, and the -n ( N) of Ken (ケン Ken), before the -ja (ジャ Ja) can be counted in the resemblance with the word Ninja (ニンジャ Ninja), the Nin (ニン Nin), meaning Endurance is found in the title with Wind Endurance (ニンプウ Ninpū). The loop is looped.
    • Also, there is the word for Thorny Blade (はりケン Hariken) found in it, and resembling Hurricane (ハリケン Hariken). Blades, mostly thin and thorny, are ninjas predilection type of weapons.
  • The series has similarities with Choujuu Sentai Liveman, Kousoku Sentai Turboranger, and Ninja Sentai Kakuranger.
  • This series was originally called Dainin Sentai Ninjaman (Great Ninja Squadron Ninjaman).[3]
  • This was the first series since Choujuu Sentai Liveman to have three members from the start with two members joining later on.
  • This was the first series since Choujin Sentai Jetman to have a female ranger who's primary costume color was neither pink, yellow nor white, followed by Mahou Sentai Magiranger and Doubutsu Sentai Zyuohger.
    • But Magiranger had female Pink and White Ranger and Zyuoher a female White replacing Pink; all 3 series also have a male yellow that [at least for two of the three] was adapted Male; the others being Ninninger to Ninja Steel, Magiranger to Mystic Force, and A-Squad Yellow, and Kakuranger to Alien Rangers.
  • This is also the first season since Kyōryū Sentai Zyuranger to feature a Green Ranger as a Sixth Ranger.
    • And so far only one since teams since had Green in the core team (w/ or w/o a Black Ranger or replaced by Black)
  • This is also the first series since Kousoku Sentai Turboranger to have a female human villain as a wanderer.
    • Both series have similarities with School Students.
    • Both series have the Red Female Villains in human forms.
  • In the ending credits of Power Rangers Ninja Storm, Hurricaneger is credited as "Hurricane Rangers" where Ninja Storm is being adapted from.
  • In Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger, Ranger Keys from Ninpu Sentai Hurricaneger are unique in that they are identified as 3 separate Sentai groups: Hurricaneger, Gouraiger, and Shurikenger. The only other season to be closely similar to this case is Engine Sentai Go-Onger with 2 separate groups of Ranger Keys.
  • This series has similarities to Kamen Rider Ryuki, which came out in the same year and would later be adapted in 2009 as Kamen Rider Dragon Knight:
    • Both feature the respective group in factions, something neither had done before.
    • Both series' heroes(/villains) are animal-themed and clandestine warriors (ninjas & mainly knights).
    • Both have the factions fighting each other (in Hurricanger, because of the villains; Ryuki because only the last standing Rider can get their wish granted).
    • Both of their American Counterparts were adapted, but not by Saban.
    • Both have motorcycles.
      • Ninja Storm used this more than Hurricanger though.
    • Both have traditional motifs mixed with metal and technology.
    • Both have a gimmick (Kakurai Balls and discs; cards)
    • Both feature insect-themed members.
    • Both feature abnormal teams.
      • There are 13 Ryuki Riders
      • The color designation of Hurricanger is Red/Blue (F)/Yellow/Crimson/Navy/Green
    • Both feature characters in the same or similar shade of color
    • Their successors resemble the first adapted Sentai and Rider
      • Abaranger and Zyuranger have dinosaur motifs
      • 555 and Black RX have black colored suits and glowing swords pulled from their suits.
  • This is the first season to feature an insect-themed Rangers, followed by Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters.
  • This is the last season to feature a "To Be Continued" (つづく Tsuzuku) text (that could be written "To Be Continued" (つづ Tsuzuku)) at the end of each episode.
  • This is the last season to be distributed in North America by Shout! Factory so far due to the advent of Hasbro Era.
