Power Rangers Megaforce is the twentieth season of Power Rangers, based on the Super Sentai series Tensou Sentai Goseiger. A second season that coincides with the franchise's 20th anniversary titled Power Rangers Super Megaforce, premiered the following year.

Production

"Power Rangers Megaforce" was trademarked by Saban Brands in 2011 during the run of Power Rangers Samurai. Due to the audition calls for Power Rangers (which Rangers were not identified outright) involving a black ranger, there were speculations that it may be Power Rangers' reinterpretation of Tensou Sentai Goseiger. The official name was then revealed as "Power Rangers Megaforce" with the descriptions reflecting it is indeed a Goseiger adaptation. However, leaked casting sides and other information also showed Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger influence, which was revealed to be part of the show's second season Super Megaforce.

Synopsis

"Our world was once a safe and happy place until evil aliens arrived with one plan: to destroy Earth. Gosei, Earth's ancient guardian, awoke and called on a new team of teenagers to fight off this new threat. They are the Power Rangers Megaforce."
―Narrator[src]

Since 1993, Earth has been protected by the mighty Power Rangers. When Zordon disappeared, he left Gosei in charge of protecting the Earth, who has been doing so with his robotic assistant Tensou. However, an evil organization of aliens known as the Warstar begin their descent to Earth in order to conquer it, Gosei responds to the emergency by calling upon five teenagers with attitude to form a new team of Power Rangers. Not only do they face off the Warstar, but also a species of Toxic Beasts and a robotic army who wish to take Earth for themselves.

Later, the Mega Rangers gain an ally by the name of Robo Knight, a powerful android created by Gosei, who assists them in their battle against these adversaries.

Notes

  • This is the first Power Rangers series to use footage from multiple, previously unadapted Super Sentai series in a single episode. The episodes where Troy dreams with the Legendary Battle as Mega Mission uses footage from both Tensou Sentai Goseiger and Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger
  • This is the first anniversary season where the main Sentai counterpart, Goseiger, is not counted as an anniversary season. However, it also uses footage from Gokaiger, which is an anniversary season.

  • In the opening at 0:01, the person behind the morpher is actually Troy's Super Sentai counterpart. This error is unedited for unknown reasons.
  • This is the first season to have its UK premiere on terrestrial free to air TV, as it airs on Channel 5 starting in August[2] but had yet to appear on a subscription channel. All previous seasons premiered on Sky One, Fox Kids, Jetix or Nickelodeon. In October, Megaforce reruns started on Nicktoons, Nickelodeon itself having apparently dropped the show.
  • This is the only season where the Zords share the same names as their Sentai counterparts.
