Favorite Sixth Ranger.
I generally don’t like the sixth Rangers. Probably for the same reason that I generally dislike the Red Rangers. They tend to be wonderful and special and then suddenly everything will concentrate on them to the exclusion of the characters I actually care about. (Look, I have a thing for sidekicks. See my obsession with the Teen Titans.)
So yeah, sixth Rangers are not really my thing. With a couple of exceptions.
1- Eric from Time Force.
Eric should not be my type. He’s a Red Ranger, and an Oh-So-Special character that gets a million episodes about him. But you know what? He’s awesome and has daddy issues and just wants people to love him, and has the best subtext ever with Wes, and he pretty much hits all of my favorite narrative kinks, and basically, favorite. Plus, the Q-Rex is awesome.
2-Cam from Ninja Storm
3-Trent from Dino Thunder
Trent is Tommy Oliver done correctly. (Yes, I know, he’s not a sixth Ranger. But except for the fact that he’s only the fifth, he fulfills every other requirement of a sixth Ranger. Outsider, comes late to the party, was briefly secretly evil/worked against them, etc.) Basically, if Tommy had been as awesome as Trent is, I would like Tommy. Trent was under a spell evil, beat up Tommy (this may factor into my love of Trent) had an adorable relationship with Kira, and worked out his daddy issues. Plus, he’s awesome and draws comics. What’s not to like?
Karone and Ryan almost made this list, but it was too long already. 😀
