Thank God, a brown ranger would almost certainly look terrible

Brown isn't particularly vibrant or bold.
It's already been done in this medium many times. Imperer, Habataki, Ga-O, Gridon, Billy the Kid Damashii.

All that's needed is proper texturing to make the color stand out. Probably a Bangai design like BullBlack or GoseiKnight.

Or give it a metallic sparkle and make it bronze or copper or something (which I do see them doing at some point).
That's honestly the one that gets me. So many Gold, Silver and alternate Red Rangers, yet they always skip Bronze? C'mon, Toei.

I'd even longed for a Purple Ranger a few years before we got RJ.
We all longed for a Purple Ranger since Zeo.

I want a Bronze Ranger in both Sentai and PR too.

People often count Kat Ranger as an Official Orange Ranger in PR but she was only in one episode.
Considering half of her suit was white, much like how Shadow Ranger was half black/half metallic light blue (and people call him a Black Ranger), that's a bit of a stretch to say she's an Orange Ranger like that. More like a white and orange Ranger.

I'm not super crazy about gold, but it does make for some nice accents and works well with some colors or to convey "This is an important power/armor/etc.", so I can see the appeal of brown as an option if it fit somewhere.
Gold has been overused in this franchise. Almost every Saban Brands sixth has been that and we'll be getting another in Beast Morphers. Hell, even Silver has been overused which has got me thinking, we mostly only get metallic sixths anymore, so why not a bronze Ranger like others have said.

I like Gold better as an accent color myself. I mean, Gold Rangers were nice in Zeo and Samurai, but they've gotten ridiculous since Dino Charge.

We hardly ever get color sixths anymore if you know what I mean.

I could have seen them using brown in a season like Dino Charge where there were so many Rangers that the colors started to run together (blue/aqua, graphite/silver, etc). However, in a season with only 5/6 members I don't see them adding brown unless they finally decide to overhaul the color scheme as a whole. It's the same reason they don't trade out pink for purple or yellow for orange.
As for bronze, they're always going to ask "why do that when silver and gold is better/more valuable."

If you lightened it or didn't light the scenes properly, it'd just look like a shade of red.
Very true. Case & point, Ninja Captor.

Brown won't work out, orange yes. But unless it's a costume that is mostly one colour with a bit of brown and they still call him/her the brown ranger then I can't see it happening.

I'm greatful we did eventually get a purple ranger (she was a cute girl too as a bonus).

It MIGHT have worked in SPD too, a lot of rangers there.

Yeah but her costume still had a lot of orange so I guess we DO have an orange ranger already but not many people remember her morphing.

It really depends in the suit design I think, if there's a secondary color a brown ranger could look nice, a solid brown ranger could easily look like a turd with boots..
Lol... Seeing as there are now fart jokes in PR, a brown ranger is definitely NOT needed....

I see the issue of brown being lackluster on a colorful team but if the suit were to be broken up with other colors it could work. Like if the suit were to be brown mixed with gold highlights and white gloves and boots. If the team was animal based then a motif of a bear would bring the color arrangement nicely.

It’s all in the design. This forum was big on stating orange as a main suit color wouldn’t work, especially standing next to Red.

Kat is in Legacy Wars, so she's known to a wide audience now, even if they didn't watch SPD.

That said, I would've preferred a brown ranger in Kyoryuger over the fact we had 3 blue rangers and essentially 2 silver rangers.

Time it with an Olympics year and have a trio of "6'th's" like the Go-On wings + 1, a trio of metallic colors and specifically call them the Bronze ranger, maybe even throw in a knight theme so they can have GoseiKnight like armors that would make the metal theme really work.

Shoot, we've had Bronze Kamen Riders before, kinda surprised it hasn't happened in Sentai. Even the argument that the Riders are not named after colors, thus not "themed" after the colors falls apart somewhat when they're themed after elements or fruit and they pick specific colors for those forms and/or secondary Riders.

I guess Dino Charge could have had a brown ranger if they wanted but it's not the best colour for a superhero. Just like we don't see much brown cars on the road.

EDIT: Oops, double post

Anyway, ARE there any shades left than brown/bronze left? Maybe something like MAUVE for a one off goofball ranger. Although, come to think of it, since Shinkenger's brown ranger was basically "Aaaaah, here you go, here's a honorary title", that may just be SS's way for future oddball Characters with odd colors, make them reaaaaally rangers ya'll, but not really.

A bronze ranger could work but not brown.

Monster of the day: So Brown Ranger, what's your morphing call?
Brown ranger: Please don't ask...
