Power Rangers Legacy Wars already has quite the diverse cast of characters, but it could always use a bit more right?
Sure it could, and that's why we've come up with a list of potential candidates. Now, with any list like this, there are plenty of other Rangers that we would love to see included in the game, and even a few that might be more popular in the fandom than the ones on this list.
When coming up with these picks, we tried to think of who was already on the roster, and what Rangers were recently added. We also took upcoming events and celebrations into account, as well as which seasons didn't have any representation thus far.
Recent additions to the game include Preston Tien (Power Rangers Ninja Steel), Andros (Power Rangers In Space), and Kat Manx (Power Rangers S.P.D.) who is the newest member of the cast.
Those characters and others also came up when considering how much of a team is already in the game. For instance, teams like Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and the Power Rangers team from the recent movie already have their entire roster available to play, so there was no need to add any more, at least for now.
Also, nothing was off limits either. From the BOOM! Comics and HyperForce interactive tabletop game to the previous 24 seasons of the long-running show, everything was game.
Of course, you're likely to have a different list, so make sure to hit me up @MattMuellerCB on Twitter and let me know who you would like to see in the game, as well as what you think of our picks in general!
Alright, enough talking. Without further ado, here is a selection of 10 more characters we would love to see make their debuts in Power Rangers Legacy Wars.
Legacy Wars already includes two versions of Tommy, as the Green and White Mighty Morphin Rangers are both available.
While that would typically negate yet another version in the game, Tommy is one of the most popular Rangers ever, and there are many who cite his Black Dino Thunder time as their favorite.
The Green and White Rangers play much differently, so there's no reason the Black Dino Ranger couldn't as well, and there is only one other Dino Thunder Ranger on the current roster, that being the White Ranger Trent Fernandez.
Legacy Wars currently lacks a bevy of Green Rangers and any Rangers from Ninja Storm, so why not solve both all at once?
Putting the Green Samurai Ranger in the game would solve both of those problems. The Green Samurai Ranger is otherwise known as Cameron Watanabe, the cunning and immensely intelligent son of Sensei Kanoi Watanabe.
While the other Rangers are modeled after Ninjas, Cameron is modeled after a Samurai and has a unique set of abilities all his own thanks to the Samurai Amulet.
Power Rangers HyperForce has delivered a whole new crew of Rangers to fans, and while all of them deserve a spot in the game, our pick for this list is Vesper.
Vesper is played by Cristina Vee and is the HyperForce Black Ranger. Vesper is also an android, which should provide the developers plenty of room to come up with new abilities that combine her speed and resilience to create an insanely deadly attacker.
Side note...please let one of her moves be a crazy lethal karate chop.
Speaking of HyperForce, the interactive show is based in the Time Force universe, and few from the Time Force era are more popular than Jen Scotts.
Jen Scotts was the Time Force team's Pink Ranger, leader of the team and future mentor of the HyperForce Rangers. That makes her perfect for the balanced class, a class that will let her use methodical attacks that have a high potential for critical hits.
When all else fails though, she can always rely on her trusty Chrono Saber.
Legacy Wars currently doesn't have any Rangers from the RPM series, and we can't think of anyone better to change that than Gem and Gemma.
It's hard to have one without the other, and so Legacy Wars would introduce the Boom Twins to the game at the same time. Both would have slightly different but complimentary fighting styles, and the best part is they would have bonuses attached when you have one as leader and one as an assist.
Oh, and if there was any doubt, both Gem and Gemma are all about the attack class.
Class: Attack (Both)
Part of the fun of Legacy Wars is being able to control some of the powerful Ranger allies that have shown up during the show. That list surely includes the Sentinel Knight, and he deserves a spot on the roster.
The Sentinel Knight is an ally that aides the Operation Overdrive Rangers on more than one occasion, and later in the show gets a new even more deadly form that allows him to transform into the Sentinel Sword. In fact, that could even be one of his breaker attacks, though on the whole, he would still be a Defender.
Legacy Wars already has one of the Ninja Steel Rangers (Preston/Blue), but the next Ranger from the team should easily be Sarah Thompson.
Sarah is Ninja Steel's Pink Ranger and is also the team's resident inventory. Sarah has created some ingenious pieces of tech during her time on the team, and having a few of those in the game would make her an extremely dangerous Defender, and a critical part of any team.
The roster could use a bit of Turbo power, and who better to provide that than the Phantom Ranger.
Besides having a great name, the Phantom Ranger frequently comes to the Rangers side when they're in trouble, and is immensely powerful. While he can hold his own in a fight, he uses stealth when possible, as he is able to turn invisible. Combined with his Phantom Laser, he is a great pick for just about any situation, and that makes him a perfect balanced fighter.
The hit mobile game also frequently includes villains from the past shows, and few are more popular than Ransik.
Ransik is the rare villain that at times gets the audience on his side, as fans grew to love his cynical sense of humor and brutal strength in combat. It also helped that he was one of the more capable villains, actually managing to beat the Rangers several times in hand to hand combat.
His blend of melee skills, energy abilities, and telekinesis would be a deadly combination.
Okay, so there are two Ninja Steel Rangers on this list, but it only makes sense with Super Ninja Steel right around the corner.
Plus, from a roster perspective, the Gold Ninja Steel Ranger (aka Levi) is much different than either Sarah or Preston. Levi is always gung-ho for a fight, and his Rockstorm Guitar allows for a host of elemental based abilities.
Levi would be all about pure offense in a fight, making a perfect fit for the attacker class.
Plus, if a Ninja Steel Megazord ever gets a call-up, we would love to see the Ninja Bull Zord get the nod.
