Synopsis

"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."
―Narrator[src]

The Samurai Rangers continue to wage their war with the Nighloks and Master Xandred, who has enlisted the help of the legendary esteemed Nighlok King, Serrator. With the Nighlok's getting stronger by the minute, the Rangers must learn to harness their newly acquired Black Box, which will allow them access to their Super Samurai state and unlock new Megazord combinations. They later discover the Black Box's connection to their ancestors, which allows them to tap into just that to unlock Shogun Mode, a powerful new form only accessible through their Super Mega Mode. In addition, their new weapon the Bullzooka packs some serious firepower.

As the end-game approaches, Jayden's older sister Lauren Shiba arrives and reveals her true identity as the true 18th Head of the Shiba Clan. Taking her rightful place as Red Samurai Ranger, her arrival nearly divides the team but her warm nature eventually brings everyone together.

Notes

Top: Shot clearly shows female red, Bottom: Continuing shot which appears in preview obscures the skirt

  • 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. This footage was not used in the show.
  • 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 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.
  • 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 lasting until Super Ninja Steel.
