    I remember that show on Cartoon Network. Yeah, the five-man dynamic is common in Japanese media. It also appears in the West, though.

    The Hero: The main protagonist.
    The Lancer: The bad boy, and everything The Hero is not.
    The Big Guy: Kicks butt. A lot. Often dumb. Mute, too.
    The Smart Guy: Weaker, but ahs a brain.
    The Chick: The peacemaker and nurturer. Often a medic too. Often the emotional one. Usually a woman, hence the name.
    Sixth Ranger: Comes around later. Often used to be a bad guy, or has been secretly fighting the Emperor Evulz since before our heroes came on the air.
    Sixth Ranger Traitor: Like the Sixth Ranger, but evil! (Yes, I know, the name is stupid, and Sixth Column's a better name. Blame Heinlein for writing a story called Sixth Column.)

    YJK plays it perfectly, with Jacen as The Hero, Jaina as the Lancer, Tenel Ka as The Big Guy, Lowie as The Smart Guy, and M-TD as The Chick. (Jacen has some shades of The Chick as well.) Zekk's the Sixth Ranger, and in some of the official art, he evn looks like the Trope Namer with short hair. Relevant to this, Kyp's the Mentor, but he used to be a Sixth Ranger Traitor. Which is, oddly, the most popular of the ensemble.

    The bad guys have learned how to do it as well. There, they are the Big Bad, the Dragon, the Brute, the Evil Genius, and the Dark Chick, with the sixth guys being the same. There, rather than being about five, it's one guy and his four henchmen, the Japanese word for four, shi, also meaning "death".

    Yeah, strangely enough, the time travel season had a villain who was a eugenic reject from a Nazi (albeit not on traditional racial categories, but still selective human breeding) utopia future. (Keep in mind, Haim Saban is Jewish, so the "How the hell did this get past the radar?" factor is OVER NINE THOUSAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNNNND!) Couldn't help but think of Kyp. And Magneto. This being Power Rangers, all the depth was lost before the writers' fingers touched the keyboard.

    Kyp would make a kickass Green Ranger.

    Okay, 100% insane crossover/fusion idea GO!

    On Korriban, the most powerful and evil Sith of all time, Lord Zedd, has awoken! He sends out monsters and Putty Patrollers to fight the New Republic and their forces are unable to stop him... until Zordon, first of the Jedi, recruits Jedi with ATTITUDE!

    Luke Skywalker, the Red Ranger!
    Mara Jade Skywalker, the Pink Ranger!
    Tionne, the Yellow Ranger!
    Corran Horn, the Black ranger and
    Kam Solusar, the Blue Ranger!

    They are the Mighty Morphing Jedi Rangers! :D

    BUT! Lord Zedd has a Ranger of his own! He recruits newcomer Kyp Durron to be his Green Ranger! :eek: But the other Jedi Rangers break the brainwashing and he joins the forces of good, piloting his Rancorzord!

    And this post is... completely nuts. :p

    I actually really like that picture! :D

    Kyp Durron is probably my second favorite character, he's what I'd picture myself being like as a Jedi. :p

    A little bit dark, with a touch of a temper that he has to control at all times and very sarcastic?

    Kyp Durron is very controversial to say the least...

    I read that, but wasn't keen on it, he was too young for me then and still allowing the guilt of his actions to weigh heavily on him. More depressive....didn't like that.

    It's sad that Kyp and Cilghal haven't received their own novel yet, and does Streen still exist? :p
    Corran and Kyle have received their own stuff, well received stuff mind you, so why can't Kyp and Cilghal.

    Kinda makes me want to reread the Jedi Academy Trilogy. [face_thinking]

    I agree, a novel for Kyp would be awesome!! Doubt it will happen though. I have my signed Kyp picture by Kevin J Anderson and that helps!!
