Worst Power Rangers Series

The Top Ten

1 Samurai

Turbo may have been pretty stupid, but Samurai reaches a new low. The acting in this show is absolutely awful, and I know PR isn't exactly known for its top tier acting, but the actors in this season are just painful to watch. The actual concept is not that bad, but they don't really go anywhere with it. Spike and Bulk are the worst comic reliefs I've ever seen. It's essentially the three stooges with two people... Except neither of them are funny (especially Spike, I hate his laugh). The special effects are pretty good, and the fighting is average. I'm also not a fan of how they attempt to shoehorn in a moral about friendship and teamwork into every episode. I can deal with that in a few episodes, but every episode has a forced moral like this, and it gets irritating really fast.

There are a few aspects of the show that are pretty cool, like the swordsman Deker (who is played by the red ranger from wild force) and the impressive powers of the main villains, but no matter how ...more

I REALLY HATE POWER RANGER SAMURAI AND SUPER SAMURAI!

I ALSO HATE SAMURAI SENTAI SHINKENGER TOO!

TO THE ACTORS OF SAMURAI, SUPER SAMURAI, AND SAMURAI SENTAI SHINKENGER, YOUR ACTING IS HORRIBLE! YOU ALL SUCK!

YOU ALL SHOULD WON FOR WORST ACTORS AND WORST CAST ON T.V.!

YOU ALL SHOULD NEVER ACT AGAIN!

YOU RUINED POWER RANGERS!

And you should win for worlds invalid criticism in the world of internet,

My 4yr old likes this so I'm occasionally forced 2 watch & 2 say its horrible is an understatement. Every time I watch this I wanna punch someone in the face. The only bright spot is that the pink ranger is cute... Erika Fong

Samurai had a big job, they had to restart the power ranger franchise, honestly, I thought Samurai was pretty awesome but I guess some people don't like the actors, all I can say is they are way better than mega force.

2 MegaForce

Power rangers is just becoming unoriginal, samurai was bad and used everything shinkenger had but when you adapt a show everything it had and air it and finish it for 2 years and you waste money on badass battleizers just to use it on megazord is just uninteresting, saban is back but they just come with unoriginal ideas. The nighloks have got to be the worst villains power rangers had ever had most nighloks just want to flood the earth, master xandred doesn't do anything until the last few episodes, why did deker and dayu even die? They just kill them off just to use shinkenger footage, octoroo is just there and serrator is just ok, just ok at least he didn't sit on his ass doing nothing but be active and nearly succeeded using deker as a tool to destroy the world(until deker backstabs him), the rangers were terrible acting, and we didn't care for any of them when they die, bulk and spike didn't do anything or have any interaction with the rangers well except spike with mia but not ...more

Without a doubt, the very worst season of Power Rangers in history. Turbo, Operation Overdrive and Samurai at least had some redeeming qualities whereas MegaForce has absolutely none. The acting was horrific, the storyline was unoriginal, the supposed ''epic'' battle featuring all the cameos was a major let down and the entire series was horrific. Hands down, anyone who says Turbo, Operation Overdrive or Samurai is the worst has not seen the disgrace that is MegaForce.

Even though people say samurai is bad, I enjoy because, aside from nostalgia, it had cool zord combinations, was fun at times, had decent action, some kind of mythos going for it, and Serrator made for a great villain. Also, I embrace it for what it is seeing how it's clearly for little kids. Megaforce on the other hand...oh god. To be completely honest there are some good things like Roboknight and some of the action scenes and suits, but overall megaforce is a slow and uninteresting show with bad characters, lazily designed zords, and villain characters that are just plain awful, and Super Megaforce is even WORSE, and you wanna know why, not because of the failed anniversary stuff, but because it has an impossible to follow story, and is just plain BORING AND AWFUL TO SIT THROUGH!

As bad as Samurai and Overdrive have been, they at least had a story. Megaforce is just hollow action with no story or character development whatsoever. The characters are bland and the acting is awful. And the finale is gotta be the worst I've ever seen. This season pretty much shows that Saban just doesn't care anymore.

3 Time Force

This is the guy from the Lion King fan club

you lion king haters need to stop!

Time Force Power Rangers is the worst season and it's gay!

I don't like Jen and Wes and Katie and Lucus and Trip!

They like to eat poop

My d is a perfection freak and gets angry over the smallest things! He irritates me and everyone

I thought Time Force was the Weakest, I hated how the Shadow Force/Time Shadow Megazord and the Q-Rex did not combine together, I though Alex sucked, The only redeaming villains were Nadira and Frax, although I liked Ransik turning good, Jen is good but not great, there are lots of female rangers way better than her!

4 Operation Overdrive

SPOILER ALERT FOR ANYONE WHO HAS NOT SEEN BOUKENGER!

How to take an amazing Sentai series and butcher it thoroughly in 32 episodes.

The Red Ranger went from a weary veteran adventurer to a kid dreaming of being one; the Blue Ranger went from a reformed super spy to an under-appreciated stuntman; the Black Ranger went from a conflicted, self-serving treasure hunter with the ability to channel dark energy to a shallow cat burglar and the Pink Ranger went from a repressed ex-special forces former heiress who turned her back on a life of privilege, to a geeky bookworm.

However these pale in comparison to the Mercury and Yellow Rangers. The Yellow Ranger went from a girl who was placed in a hibernation chamber by her parents, has lost her memory and is the last survivor of an ancient race to a racing car driver who acts like a complete bimbo to make her fit into reused footage of Natsuki (Bouken Yellow) in her combat suit. The Mercury (Silver) Ranger went from the ...more

Growing up watching power rangers, I was surprised to see operation overdrive work very well, people hate it not because of the characters, villains or plot, quit making excuses people, they hate it because it strays away from what the original power rangers established and became one of the most diverse and unique series to date. The idea of "treasure hunting", giving the rangers superpowers, and adding extra villains was outrageous, but surprise, surprise, it worked very well.

The series was so bad! Probably one of the major reasons I started losing my love for the season. After the high that was Mystic Force, this was a huge low! Bad storytelling (even a 10 year old figured that one out), underwhelming villains and a horrible theme song. Thank god they got back with Jungle Fury before the disaster that was RPM.

The heroes were flat, and the villains weren't that threatening as well. It's pretty clear how much they struggled to adapt Boukenger here, which, all in all, was a good Sentai season.

5 Turbo

Even though turbo was the fourth season of power rangers, coming right after Zeo, I would still have to say this is my least favorite season. All the episodes were predictable. The evil villain would send a monster and then the power rangers would defeat the monster and save the day. I know this happened a lot in other power ranger seasons but this one was the least surprising and the most boring. There was no real exciting story. The fighting scenes were alright but not as good as the other seasons. What made turbo so stupid was the blue ranger. Since when could a little boy become a power ranger. In his blue ranger costume he changed to a full grown man so you would see a 5 foot 8 power ranger fighting crime with the voice of a 4 foot 3 kid. Thank God they got rid of the kid for the next season "in Space". I'm sorry, as much as I love Saban and the old retro 90's power ranger seasons, I still think turbo is the worst.

This is the worst season in PR history! We got a gay Justin Bieber as a blue ranger, a female villain that acts like she's on crack, and the monsters are poorly designed just like the pizza monster! Plus, the black guy who played as the red ranger did some terrible leadership for the rangers because he lets all two of the megazords destroyed while fighting the last of the turbo monsters! Tommy Oliver should've remains as the red ranger!

The whole series can be summed up by Divatox's obsession with detonators. Whenever she finally did get one of the things to blow up the thing wouldn't be more powerful than a couple firecrackers and it made you wonder why she went through the trouble to place it to begin with. Every episode you watch you're expecting something to happen, but it doesn't. It makes you wonder why you bothered to watch it in the beginning.

Hey Turbo haters, I know you guys loathe Turbo and I agree that Turbo wasn't really as good as the two previous series. However even if Turbo was not the greatest, it definitely is not the worst series, because we have Power Rangers Samurai as a loathe target now. So if you guys want to say that Turbo is the worst, I dare you all to try watching and withstand a few episodes of Samurai. - Gehenna

6 Lost Galaxy

Lost Galaxy wasn't that bad. I thought it was a strong sequel to space. I thought they did a nice job with the way they had several throw backs to the Zordon era such as having Alpha and the Astro Megaship.

When I was a child, I used to LOVE Lost Galaxy. But I dunno... The comeback of Kendrix was something to hard to digest. Karone as a Pink Ranger wasn't cool, the zords weren't as cool like before and Leo... Maybe it's because he was the first after Andros but... He sucks. Really awful Red Ranger and, when a Red Ranger suck to someone, you bet the entire season suck.

This is some sort of joke right? Why the hell is this doing on here!?!? This is hands down my favorite PR series of all eternity! Get this off the list!

One of the worst? Hardly. I liked Deviot as a villain. The first episode killed someone off right off the bat. They even brought back the Psycho Rangers! Not to mention the original Magna Defender, the most realistic-acting individual in PR history. "I was wondering when you'd show up to annoy me" How could anyone hate a season with that line?

7 Super Megaforce

Such a big letdown... How is this so far down the list... Should be top... Power rangers that's a super mega win... What in the world... Please stop saying that cheesy corny line even for power rangers... I get that lost galaxy or turbo or space isn't the best but they at least wasn't a failure like mega force...

The biggest reason I found this season unbearable was because... they are clearly Rangers based off pirates... yet they keep insisting that this is some sort of "super mega" upgrade and completely ignore the pirate motif. It just looks ridiculous with so many blatantly obvious pirate references (swords, hats, blasters, pirate ship, steering wheel) and they just pretend it doesn't exist.. And the way they keep switching their weapons just seem so cheesy. It made sense in the Japanese counterpart, because each character excelled at either long range combat or close range melee. But watching the Mega Rangers do it... "Hey Gia! Let's switch! Yea this is way better! Double the blasters, double the fun! " I thought this was bad because I had grown up and that I lost interest in Power Rangers but I gave Dino Charge a try, and I loved it. But man Super Mega Force?...it's just terrible. I think Saban forgot that this isn't the 90s anymore and that whatever scripting or ...more

I'd. Rather watch porn

After watching the original, gokaiger, it made me hate power rangers. Especially this one. Horrible acting, lack of reason for new abilities, and the mix ups. The fighter is now the shooter? The shooter is now a fighter? And giving them new powers just cause. Why do they get new ones? Because reasons. And it hurts me cosplaying as the Japanese version because everyone associates with the American version

8 Lightspeed Rescue

I'm like twelve years old and honestly this is one of the most worst things to ever happen in Power Rangers history. Sure having a American-exclusive ranger worked, but I hated having that dumb red ranger trying to be all that. "Look at me! I'm Carter Grayson! I am a firefighter so I deserve to be a badass! " No-one should take this the wrong way, this is a opinion coming from a kid. A kid whose learnt nostalgia and wishes to see what those days were like. Ever heard of a new-generation kid itching to see old tapes of Fox Kids? I'm the only guy here who does! This is my opinion. Don't take this the wrong way, please.

In Space was clearly the best season, lost galaxy could be fairly incoherent but Lightspeed rescue? What is this crap? Acting is bad, zords are rediculous, villans are more cute than scary and the premise is perposterous. The only thing this season has going for it is the theme song.

The worst in the series and most annoying theme songs in power ranger history.

This series was extreme guilty pleasure and the acting was horrible and the megazord was stupid looking and power rangers were like boyscout cops

9 Ninja Storm

Because the ninja storms are cool and strong... and plus the last of the show was great.. and it shows the way of the ninjas.. for me is ninja storm all the way..

Last parts of the show were kinda good, and the theme song was awesome you gotta admit

The only thing I didn't like about ninja storm was how they used sound effects from windows movie maker. I just came off as lazy.

I actually liked this season. The Thunder Rangers were interesting. Unfortunately, no other villains were.

10 in Space

Yes! In Space is one of the great ones after MMPR! Countdown to Destruction is my favorite!

One of the best seasons. It got the idea of power/mystics/legends off the planet and showed it was all over the galaxy. Opening new ideas everywhere. Zords? Top ten!

This serie is the best, come on!

In Space is what saved power rangers after the mess that was Turbo.

The Contenders

11 Ninja Steel

Worst visual effects in T.V. history
Most the dialogue is awful
Boring

I feel that they need to step it up more with the new season of power rangers because when watching it, the epic action is there but not fully there and I don't feel that action thrill from ninja steel T.V. show and I see it but not much.

How it hasn't even come out yet

Dad is an angry idiot

12 Dino Charge

To be honest, this show isn't THAT BAD. Nice background story, awesome characters, awesome first morph cause they ACTUALLY don't KNOW what it does, Great acting. Hey, it's better than Samurai and Megaforce...

This is by far on my top 10 ranks for best shows. It has interesting conflict the villains and their henchmen. The only flaw is that the sheer number of 10 main rangers in one show can be overwhelming but it's not a bad detriment. Most of the zords are well designed as well but the rangers have a little bit too many armor upgrades and weapons available (it can be difficult to remember all of them)

I love this show so much like jungle fury was great show too I want it team up with dino charge rangers have a lot have spirit of Dinosaurs and spirit animals to combine

Farts, farts everywhere they said and this considered the worst moments of Power Rangers yet. So annoying the caveman ranger farts louder and have dingleberries stuck in his butt.

13 RPM

RPM is the best season of power rangers!

Well I quest rpm are just great but the theme is hard for the rangers

I just can't describe how painful it was to even watch an episode

RPM was nothing more than a disaster, being the last season Disney produced. - IanDLBZF

14 Jungle Fury

Jungle fury is the best season ever I have seen it should never be in this list and It should come in top 10 and all rangers are great especially Casey and the blue ranger, purple and white and ever the man with the lion spirit is good. You all are awesome guys you all should keep going

Jungle fury was a great season, in my opinion. The acting was actually pretty good by power rangers standards, the villains were creative and cool. The story was well written and developed, the concept was really neat, the mythos with the beast-human war was fantastic. RJ is one of the coolest Rangers yet, he's super chill, but then he becomes a ranger and beats everyone down; he made being the purple ranger look cool!

All in all, a very good series, and my personal favorite.

Jungle Fury was pretty decent. The characters were pretty good and so were the action scenes. It may not be the best, but it certainly is not the worst.

This series was probably one of the worst ever made. It was stupid in so many ways, (recap special being a T.V. game show, how changing the host of the villain's past would make the main villain stronger, the sudden 'masters turning into animal forms that are just the masters from Gekiranger' thing at the end, mediocre acting).

15 Wild Force

Despite the lame villains, this season was strong. I liked how the characters seemed interesting without having villains to play off of.

Wild Force was awesome.

Wild force is cool

What? Wild force has an awesome story line -_-

16 Zeo

ZEO NEEDED MORE DETAILS TO MAKE IT MORE INTERESTING AND MAYBE A TURBO A POWER RANGER MOVIE TO THE SEASON FINALE.

I really liked this season. I liked how seed and Rita were always trying to go after mondo

I like the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Season 3 better

Power rangers zeo is really good and they are the best

17 Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Mighty Morphin Power Rangers is an American superhero children's television series that premiered on August 28, 1993, on the Fox Kids Network.

THE BEST series period. It can't get any better! The weapons are amazing and not so stupid looking like most of the newer seasons weapons

Simply because people keep on saying it was the best just because it was the first, we all know that already but just because it was original doesn't mean it was the best, even you should understand that

Dude your so dumb just because the actor who played black was African-American isn't the reason why they chose him the actor was the one who auditioned for the role they picked him probably his acting was great for the part

This is probably second best, I like how they tried to walk out initially instead of saying "Sign us up huge alien head! ". Lord Zedd is the best villain in PR, he cemented that by exiling Rita for failing (Real villains don't give second chances). It had its flaws but doesn't deserve to be on this list.

18 Dino Thunder

This to me was the best series along side MM. They have good acting, hell, WAY better than that stupid Dino charge and Samurai, they have a nice, refreshed, but more touched on idea of dinosaurs, the zords were pretty awesome I mean come on, being able to detach one of the arms and putting on another zord, leading to double scissors and double drill attacks! That is cool! By far my favorite mega zord is the Dino stegazord. OH MY GOD! It is incredibly amazing.
But anyways, the characters were interesting. Connor was well, a kinda common jock, Ethan was a cool videogame nerd, and Kira was a very good singer. Trent was also my favorite character as well ranger in this season. His suit had an awesome design, his previous, uncontrollable form was pretty cool, and the relation of him to the main villain of this season was interesting.

Everyone can agree with me that they liked seeing Tommy coming back for one more season. Like, he was awesome in Dino Thunder. Also, they had really ...more

If you don't like power rangers then why are you on here?

The acting on the show wasn't what most of the series had but still ran rather well

It was good, but not perfect. It's one of my favorite teams and the show was cool.

19 S.P.D.

I REALLY HATED THE SPD RANGERS!

RED RANGER IS A LOSER

BLUE RANGER IS A DOPE

GREEN RANGER IS A JERK

YELLOW RANGER HAS A STUPID NOSE

PINK RANGER IS A HORRIBLE BLONDE GIRL

THESE SPD RANGERS ARE SELFISH JERKS!

THEY EVEN UNDERESTIMATED OTHER POWER RANGERS!

SPD SHOULD TURN IN THEIR STUPID MORPHERS!

Operation Overdrive team up was better than SPD and it ends with their memories still intact

SPD's evil plans to erase memories failed in operation overdrive

The reason SPD became popular because they tamed the white people with cheese!

To the cast, characters, and the fans of power rangers SPD

Eat Cat Poop!

20 Mighty Max Mighty Max is an American animated action/sci-fi television series that aired from 1993 to 1994 to promote the British Mighty Max toys, an outgrowth of the Polly Pocket line, created by Bluebird Toys in 1992. It ran for two seasons, with a total of 40 episodes airing during the show's run.

Why is Mighty Max doing in this list? That's not Power Rangers at all!

21 Alien Rangers

This series is so bad they didn't even take the time to write a the pie song for it, they just took the mighty morphin theme song and inserted the word alien into it

My god, the alien voices for the Rangers were so terrible, half the time you can't even understand what they're saying

The theme song is just the Mighty Morphin theme song just with the word alien inserted into it

You can definitely tell that they were human and that alien thing was a mask - princepretty

22 Elastic

They are over cool men

23 Mystic Force

It is awesome season and good theme

Although it has a good theme it is still in my opinion the worst PR season list. They had capes and I do not like that. The character Chip was pretty bad. Xander always talked before fighting. It wa funny for a few times but he kept on going and going. Getting blasted every time! Morph wet long and were boring and the fights (well normal length) worst season EVER barely beating samurai though. I couldn't even watch the rest of the season

Mystic force is amazing because it includes magic rather than dinosaurs or ninjas

At least for once the red ranger is actually my favorite. Other seasons, it's usually another color.

24 Super Samurai
25 Dino Super Charge

Worst Power Rangers season ever. I don't get the love for Dino Charge, highly overrated piece of crap.

They are super cool try them

26 Mythos

THE COSTUMES ARE THE ONLY THING NICE

This isn't even an actual Power Rangers season. It's just some cheap "show", if you can even call it that to stroke the ego of a real-life PR-obsessed wannabe that's got plenty of time in his hands.

Why is this garbage even on this list?

27 Super Dino Charge

This one and Dino Charge both suck what went wrong, I will tell you... EVERYTHING

Why is it not in the top 10 at least? - Murphdog405
