Thread: AbareKiller as a Sixth Ranger?

  1. #1
    Why is it that AbareKiller is considered a Sixth Ranger since in Abranger there were only 5 rangers.

    I think you'll find Kamen Rider Meteor from Fourze and Kamen Rider Birth from OOO are sixth rangers despite only being the second hero on their teams (Second Rider is an alternate name for the trope). The actual number doesn't matter, but MMPR and Zyuranger are the trope namers.

    Technically yes. For some reason Toei don't consider them to be Extra Rangers (NOT sixth rangers, that's a trope, not an official classification), but instead part of the core team, but in terms of the trope, yeah, they're sixth rangers.

    "Sixth Ranger" is more of a misnomer, because it's more of a classification, not an exact number. In terms of Abaranger, AbareKiller met all the conditions of a "Sixth" and thus is one. In terms of GekiChopper and Violet, since they both can technically be "Sixths", but Gekiranger was special like this.
