Filmography

Notes

  • The original version of the Dino Charge opening titles incorrectly credited Sudarso as under his birth name.
  • Sudarso is the third actor to appear in new footage of both Power Rangers and Super Sentai (as opposed to reusing Super Sentai footage for Power Rangers), after Machiko Soga and Ami Kawai. A few caveats make Yoshi's appearance unique:
    • Yoshi's the first to appear in Power Rangers then Super Sentai (Machiko and Ami appeared in Zyuranger then Zyu 1.5).
    • Yoshi was the first to be filmed by both the Power Rangers and the Super Sentai film crews (Zyu 1.5 was footage for the first season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers but was shot by Toei).
    • Yoshi's the first whose two roles are not connected. Machiko and Ami appeared in Zyu 1.5 as Witch Bandora and Lamy respectively from Zyuranger so there would be more footage to use as Rita Repulsa and Scorpina respectively for Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. By contrast, there is no stated connection between Yoshi's unnamed Ninninger character and either Koda or his Kyoryuger counterpart Nobuharu Udo.
  • Sudarso and his brother Peter both performed their own unique version of the traditional Hand-Off in Super Sentai.
