Never, because Red Ranger is the leader and leaders stand out.

Now, the happy medium of course is to give all Rangers warrior Zords, which I will advocate for every season forever.

All I want is that whatever zord setup they do in the future, that there is a final setup where all zords are used. I loved Go-Busters and Wild Force (haven't seen Gao yet), but it bothered me that there were always some zords without a Megazord formation at the end of the series (coincidentally they both just needed a pair of legs). Now look at Kyuranger/Dino Charge for example; when all is said and done there are no spare Zords. All arms used, all bodies accounted for, All 11 Zords combine into 5 Megazords. We need more of that.

But it's not a problem for the wrtiers and designers, because it's selling. When a kid dreams, they dream of being the star. And the star is either Red or sixth, we've all always known this.

But yeah, repaints suck. That said, budgets are a necessary evil, and the Bear Zords were awesome.

Seriously, considering Wild Force already had more than 20 zords, most of them being arms, you'd think they could have sprung for at least one more zord forming megazord legs. Even if they just remolded bison or rhino into something else again. But the problem with the rhino was you could only use the eagle or the puck. That was stupid. They should have come up with another zord for that too.

And we had animals for four years in that same row. Later three years in a row three different times.

There's more than enough room to return to a concept not fully explored in over ten years.

No, he's right. Well, at least in the sense that they are handled horridly nowadays. Now that I've spent the better part of a month watching nothing but older Sentai, I really miss the days where the show was a toy commercial sure, but more often than not the new toys serviced the plot and not the other way around. When something new showed up, it felt special. Now it's just new zord after new zord after new zord and then they get used once or twice and totally forgotten, and they're often the entire focus of the episode. It's all so arbitrary and meaningless and it's lost any sort of special meaning.

God, I long for the days of Carranger when it was two main mechs and maybe an auxiliary or two. And no fucking collectibles.

I'd love if they intended the auxilery mecha to be one offs from the start. Every mecha's the Exotic Brothers headders, a random use of powers

I think each ranger having their own megazord would be excessive even for Sentai. I mean yeah, there're sometimes several auxiliary zords but you'd need at minimum two more zords per ranger for a three-zord megazord, let alone a five-zord combination. So that'd be ten auxiliary zords just for that alone. Not to mention you'd need to take the time to introduce them which likely would mean one episode per ranger with them being rewarded or finding them.

And if you had five megazords running around what would that do to the scales of battles? I mean, already most of the time the megazord forms and they might exchange a sword clash or two, or take a couple hits from the monster then unleash their final move and we're done. But if you have five megazords all getting involved that would be a lot of to do. And then, because it's inevitable with Sentai, they'd have to start combining the individual megazords into super megazords. Whether they would combine all five together, or just two or three at a time no clue. But still, those kind of shoved together megazords just end up looking...meh in my opinion. And generally they're basically just a fancy pile of zords that does nothing but unleash their super move anyways.

I think what might be fun, is having the rangers with warrior zords like Magiranger and such seasons. But then let them each gain a single auxiliary zord that acts as an accessory to their zord. Much like how they do with megazords now, becoming arms/legs/etc and giving a new weapon or attack. But on a smaller scale for the warrior zords, just not a full on megazord.
