With Gokaiger and its resurrection of "previous Sentai power", the fans are calculating , exactly how many Super Sentai member that ever exist from the show.
I made this simple chart and here my version of counting. It is 201 if we counted all rangers that ever occured in the show. However, with so many confusing parts as shown below, this is just an alternative view on this matter. So, my version are :
Basic super sentai team = the core team that initially recruit to work from the beginning
total = 167 rangers + Aka Red
Extra team member = somehow, in crisis time, surprise member join in. This/these member then join in frequently to help core member, and some even stay as permanent member (Bouken silver, Gekiviolet etc.)
With this, total = 193 rangers
Other member = ranger that only occasionally help the basic + extra team, they are not part of them.
With this all total ranger characters = 201 rangers
The official 199 Hero did not included: Ninjaman, Gunmajin and XI Mask, but included in Gekiranger=Melee, Ryo and Zuuban.
Maskman - XI Mask is green,fight on one episode only, not included in 199 War
Zyuranger - the sixth is green while black is in core team
Kakuranger - Ninjaman is blue color, not included in 199 war.
Ohranger - Kingranger / riki is black, and Gunmajin is other not included in 199 war
Carranger - VR master is black and Signalman blueish, they are counted as 'other' team.
Gogo V - Kyoko is golden/black color
Timeranger -Timefire is red
Hurricaneger - the goraijer are blue and red
Abaranger - though Emiri once put in a "pink" costume, but it is fake one.
Dekaranger - Earth branch are 5+Dekamaster,swan and break. Others are Dekabright and dekagold
Magiranger - Magishine is sixth, Wolzard and Magi Mother are 'others'
Boukenger - Bouken Silver, I missed out Zuban
Gekiranger - Gekichoper is White and Gekiviolet, I missed out Ryo and Melee
Go-onger - Go-on Wing are Silver and Gold, no pink!
Shinkenger - Kaoru is the basically same as Shinken Red and counted as one (it's the same design afterall), bit of confusing here.
UPDATED 2011 : Gokaiger now has Sixth ranger- Gokai Silver / Gai
And also in 199 Heroes movie, the addition are ; Zuuban (Boukenger) and Mele and Rio (Gekiranger)
that make the number from 201 to 204 now!
UPDATED 2013: well, with Go-busters and Kyoryuger added, the list will need to update! I'll wait until Kyoryuger settled its fascinated line up of rangers in the few next week! So far we got :
Go-busters: five more members
Kyoryuger: five + cyan + gold + grey ... and maybe more in the future, as the time of writing (June 2013)
UPDATED : NEWER VERSION OF CHART AVAILABLE HERE --- IT'S RE-DONE OF THE CHART AFTER KYORYUGER MAKING DEBUT FOR MANY OTHER 'COLOR' - VERSION UPDATED ON AUGUST 2013
