Power Rangers: Super Samurai (often abbreviated as PRSS or Super Samurai) is considered the continuation of the eighteenth series entry, and the nineteenth official season of the Power Rangers franchise. It is the continuation of Power Rangers Samurai which continues the adaption of the 33rd Super Sentai season, Samurai Sentai Shinkenger. The season continues Samurai's tradition to be shot and broadcast in HD. The second set of 20 episodes began airing on February 18, 2012 at 12n/11c.[1]. Produced by SCG Power Rangers. The series picks up where the last season left off, with Antonio, the Gold Ranger about to access the Black Box.

Chronologically, Clash of the Red Rangers, a TV movie aired after Samurai, fits in the middle of this season.


"Centuries ago in Japan, Nighlok monsters invaded our world, but samurai warriors defeated them with power symbols, passed down from parent to child. Today the evil Nighlok have risen once again and plan to flood the earth. Luckily, a new generation of heroes stand in their way. They are the Power Rangers Samurai."
Power Rangers Super Samurai powers-up with the Rangers continuing to wage their battle against the evil Master Xandred, who has now joined forces with a new super villain, the malevolent Serrator.

The seven Samurai Rangers

The Samurai Rangers learn to harness the power of the legendary Black Box to form all new Megazord combinations and become Super Samurai!

Through the power of the Black Box, the Samurai Rangers are able to tap into the power of their ancestors and unlock Shogun Mode to help protect humanity from the Netherworld's vile villains. The Black box also allows the Super Samurai to morph into Super Mega Mode inside the Megazord cockpit, which enhances their powers to aid in the battle against super monsters. In addition, a new super weapon, the Bullzooka, will make its first appearance, harnessing some serious laser power to help in the battle to stop the evil Serrator. And with each new adventure, the day gets closer and closer when Jayden, the "Red Samurai Ranger"'s secret will be revealed.

  • Among the Shinkenger footage used in the first Super Samurai promo, Red Ranger in Super mode sweeps through a horde of Moogers. In actuality, the shot is not of a male Red, but of Kaoru Shiba. Ironically, this battle footage was not used in the series.
  • Samurai, with its continuation Super Samurai, is the first series entry to have more than 32 episodes since SPD and the first season to have more than 40 episodes since Lost Galaxy.
  • This is the first season since Operation Overdrive to have a Battlizer, although it's only used once outside the Megazord cockpit.
  • This is the first season to show the Rangers' regular morphing sequences the least, as most of the times they morphed it was just showing them instantly morphing without the sequences.
  • This is the first season since In Space to be a direct continuation of the season before it. While Lost Galaxy was set after In Space it is not really a direct continuation of In Space but rather more of a stand-alone spinoff even though the Space Rangers do appear in Lost Galaxy.
  • It's the first season since Mighty Morphin to start with six active Rangers.
  • It is the second Power Rangers season broadcast on Nickelodeon and Nicktoons.
  • Super Samurai is the second season (after SPD) to feature both a female and male Red Ranger.
  • Super Mega Mode and Shark Attack Mega Mode appear to have two different belts in the actual show. The first is as seen in official renders for the show, with the closed Shogun Buckle having small attachments on its sides (making it look like the Shogun Buckle toy) which fits over the standard Mega Mode belt. The other is a version that has the closed Shogun Buckle without any attachments, but over a modified belt that has black bands going across the waist. This belt is identical to the one featured in the Shogun Mode. Both belts are used equally and interchangeably by the show (often switching in the same scene) without any reason or explanation given.
  • During this time, Saban registered a trademark for something known as "Power Rider". This led fans to believe that Saban was attempting to revive the Kamen Rider franchise in the US or, even more, utilize the episodes based around Kamen Rider Decade: Shinkenger World. However, nothing came about this and it is assumed that nothing involving Kamen Rider Decade will come about.
  • This is the first series to have the same name as an Enhancement Mode.
  • This is the first sequel season to adapt from the same Sentai the previous season did.
  • This is the first series not to have a character on the villains’ side have a change of heart, reform, or side with the Power Rangers at all.
  • Occasional merchandise, such as the official season poster and website, will have the Samurai Rangers in Mega Mode, possibly to distinguish this season from the previous.
  • This is the first season to start the trend of sequel seasons with the word Super added to their title.
