DaiRanger opening; letters for the rangers?

Post by Luno » Sun Apr 29, 2012 11:11 am

Hi, everybody,

I wanted to ask about something I noticed in the DaiRanger opening:

Each of the rangers gets a few intro scenes in the show's opening. For each ranger, there's also an image where their color, their number, and two letters are shown. (I believe it might be a plate on their motor bikes, but I'm not sure.)

The first letter is deciphered easily; it's the ranger's color. (RyuRanger has "R" for "red", KirinRanger has "Y" for "yellow", HououRanger has "P" for "pink", ...) All of them show a "K" as the second letter, though ("RK", "GK", "BK", "YK", "PK"). Could you tell me what the "K" is supposed to represent?

Possibly Ki energy which is the source of power for the DaiRangers.

The K is for Kiber Machine, which is what the bikes themselves are actually called.

We didn't either till like one of the last five episodes. I think in our translations we called them Kibaa Machines though, since it's derived from the same word that KibaRanger comes from.
