Would have been epic if Drayvon actually shot multiple arrows so Trent, Kat, and Preston could have used there flying zords to catch them and Gemma Wes could have shot some out of the sky.
Rocky and Brody could have double teamed Drayvon with there humanoid zords. Calvin, Gia and Koda could have rammed Drayvon with their zords while T.J. and Hayley circle Drayvon in their zords while shooting at him, just in time for the guys with arrows to aim them back at Drayvon and then the Ninja rangers form the Megazord and use their finisher to kill Drayvon. But for some reason they have only one Ranger finish off the monster in the team up, it was cool but not much of a team up. Time spent on the the side plot of the Ninja rangers trying to get arrows which goes nowhere could have been spent on a longer battle with the legends fighting there clones teaming up with a Ninja ranger matching their color ( Tommy could team up with Gemma in defeating his clones). Wes would be fighting Drayvon one on one like Adam vs Thrax and he and Brody use their Battilizers to kill Drayvon while he's small. Time spent on the Bracio/V Red/Tigerzord/Dragonzord fight could have spent on an unmorphed fight featuring all the legends like the first two Anniversary's or maybe some lines that reference the past seasons or maybe just some interaction between Rangers. I think there should have been a fight on the bridge before the Black Dino Ranger shows up( Why does he have Conners power? He said the only way anyone could their powers if there are killed, does that mean they killed off Conner. It's a shame I kind of liked Conner). Having the morphing sequence return would have been pretty cool and a role call, but I guess there are time limits, but then again they could have cut down the arrow side plot and on top of that maybe shorten and sped up some of the morphing sequenced like how Forever Red and Once a Ranger did. I'm not sure how the rights are but considering they own Power Rangers and used Jungle Fury footage, I think they would own some of the themes and background music, if so they they could have used the Zeo and Dino Thunder morph music and themes for the rest throughout the episode. It kind of sucks that the guy who killed Conner takes up so much focus even over other Mighty Morphin Rangers. I guess this deserves a 5/10 not to good no to- WAIT A FUCKING MINUTE. WHY ARE THERE NO COLORED EXPLOSIONS, THEY RUINED THE TRADITION 0/10

Kat didnt morph into Mighty Morphin Pink, so she didnt have access to a flying Zord.

I'm guessing they didn't use multiple flying zords due to the cost of recreating them in CGI.

I really like the Falconzord, but they should have given it a finisher that had the other rangers shoot out of the Falzon Zord's Wing Tip Blasters (in the style of Ninja Blaze Megazord).

Wes and co spent a lot of time helping the NSteel Rangers unlocking the Ninja Blaze Megazord, but then it had no impact on the fight against Drayvon. Having the Falconzord incorporate the finisher of the Ninja Blaze Megazord would have been a neat way to tie the two together (Plus, it would have let everyone been involved in the finisher and made it feel less GodKingTommy focused).

Bonus points if they copied camera shots used in the Shogun Mega Falconzord Finisher (with all the fast cutting as the shots are fired).

They could have given her a master morpher, I mean it's basically just the power-morpher with a coin green screened on to it. They could literally have her use the same prop. I wish they could have referenced Hayley and said she made the morphers. Now that I think about it would have been funny if some of Rangers joked about how much the robots suck compared to the evil rangers they have fought in the past. I believe T.J., Kat, Wes, Trent, and Conner's murderer have done so, especially the latter, he's fought himself like 7 times already. Maybe the explanation could been the reason as to why Lord Drakkon's sentries are so weak with there being limited power for each group of clones. That could also be the reason for no colored explosions either as the legends powers are being shared by the robots making it even more urgent to destroy them.

They wouldn't have to use cgi, there flying zords they could just green screen the toys like how they move rangers in the air across the screen. The toys don't need to actually be animated, the crane zord's wings don't need the flap. They just have to move across the screen.

And steal Tommy's spotlight? You must be insane. Nobody upstages Tommy. JDF makes sure of that.

He wouldn't be upstaged since he would still also be doing the arrow thing and his zord would still be the biggest. Adam technically upstaged Conner's murderer by being in Once a Ranger over him because the writers felt like was overrated. They could easily brought him back as the White Ranger in that crossover, but they chose Adam.

Maybe not upstaged, but he would have had to share the spotlight. Which JDF is clearly against. Which was why most of the veterans were asleep for the majority of the episode and the rest had to be saved by tommy.

I'm not discounting that, but what if it was as simple as "I killed Rangers in the comic, now I want to save some Rangers". The easiest solution is to coup up some damsels.

If Kat used the Crane zord I could imagine the amount of bitching about how Kat never used it in the actual series.

But yeah, it bugs me how Kat, Rocky, AND Tommy were all on the same NINJA team, reunited in a ninja season and no one cared to connect those dots.

Then make the ninja rangers the damsels and have them do the ninja reveal as the legends get cornered by the Rangdroids. Either that or just have the legends not be unconscious while trapped so they could have some actual dialogue. They could have made it so they were in a cage while there powers were being sucked (like in missing green) and then have them break out before being surrounded by the mooks and they could fight them off for a bit before they become overwhelmed, THEN the other guys could come to the rescue. That way he would actually be saving them ( because in the actual episode, the fifth Zeo ranger didn't do shit, the others did most of the work), and the actors that they paid to fly to New Zealand would actually get to act, you do not spend money on actors and then have them just pretend to sleep, they might as well have just had them be in ranger form to whole time since most of the guys roles in this "are generic stunt double with generic good guy line". If I watched Forever Red by itself and someone told me to tell them what T.J. was like from his few lines I would say "seems pretty chill (his whole demeanor), says shift into turbo, he's the Red Turbo Ranger( because he literally said it) got baked into a pizza, seems like a good fighter. Not much but compared to how he was used in this I'd say "Who the fuck is TJ" "He was that blue ranger?" "Uh he seems to like new guys and he uh knows who Drayvon is" "What was his fight scene like?" "Wait what is his ranger form called?" Like seriously at least give the guys proper introductions and everything, a sense of their personality's, something other than "He's a power ranger" Even Mr. Master Morpher didn't have much character defining moments other than "generic big good"(But then again his personalty in the original show was "Karate" just like everyone else except Billy) "He was MULTIPLE power rangers, so groundbreaking." Rocky, Kat, TJ: Insert Skull's first line from Forever Red.

This episode would have been a million times better as a two-parter. The way I would have written it is that Ninjor gave Kat, Tommy and Rocky there powers back. Ninja Ape and Ninja Crane Zords, as well as Ninja Ranger Power. It would only make sense.

Ninjor showing up would've made the episode so much cooler. That would've been my Falconzord moment.

Even if it was a 2 second flashback before the Master Morph, it would've been nice to see rather than learning its origin through social media.

There's a Ninjor costume in the states, used for the Street Fighter promo, to help introduce Ryu's Power Coin. As evidenced by the "Power Wash" short staring Robo Knight, and former Red Alien Ranger David Bacon, they had the resources to film in LA.

One more on the wasted potential pile.

It's really sad that the Street Fighter promo (which was essentially an authorized fan production) made better use of lure than the official anniversary special that had one of the MMPR writers on it (Chip wrote a couple of episodes for MMPR).

Man, don't remind me about Ninjor's role in the Street Fighter short film. I was all excited for it when I saw him on the poster (which kind of implied he'd have a fairly big and/or important role) and then 1) his role was literally about three seconds long, 2) his three second role involved him dying on the floor, and 3) whoever did his voice had apparently never heard Ninjor before and just gave him the most generic "action hero" voice possible. It wasn't even a bad impression, like Alpha in Once A Ranger or Mystic Mother. It was just "Well this is a voice he can have." Apparently wherever Bat In The Sun films their movies can't get YouTube.

It would have been a million times better without Tommy and the Tommy-porn.
