The Main Seven Mighty Morphin Inurangers
Greetings and salutations, fellow aficionados of anime, Power Rangers, Super Sentai, and everything early 1990s to early 2000s, Antoni here with another Inurangers entry. Today, I will be delving into the main Mighty Morphin Inurangers heroes, as in the seven teenage Yokai warriors with attitude. This is a general overview of who they are as heroes and as comrades.
High off of my recent excitement of my finished drawing of Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran as the Mighty Morphin Inurangers, I thought it would be great to have a go at enlisting the heroes in my Mighty Morphin Inurangers headcanon and discuss which Mighty Morphin Power Rangers counterpart suits each of the seven teenage Yokai warriors with attitude.
Before I get on to the main cast, a few words about composite and decomposite characters because there is going to be a number of them, especially in the heroes and in the villains. Since the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers had two Red Rangers, two Black Rangers, one Blue Ranger, two Yellow Rangers, and two Pink Rangers, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran are going to receive that composite character treatment, with Hakkaku and Ginta sharing a great number of the black rangers’ and the blue ranger’s traits. Where Sesshoumaru and Shuran are concerned, they are the decomposite character versions of Tommy Oliver during his respective White Ranger and Green Ranger days. Therefore, there are no International Peace Conferences, no Pan Global Games, no transfer of leadership just like what happened with Tommy’s new tenure as the White Ranger, and no power transfers until the main seven Mighty Morphin Inurangers get transformed into children, thus commencing the action for Mighty Morphin Makai Rangers and, subsequently, Inurangers Zeo but with a completely new cast. Therefore, the main seven Mighty Morphin Inurangers are going to stay the same from Season 1 to Season 3, with the only changes per season being their Zords and even their Ninjetti outfits in Season 3.
Speaking of the main seven as well as the Inurangers’ version of the Morphing Grid, where Mighty Morphin Power Rangers had five members at least to six members at most, there would already be seven members, seven morphing coins, and seven Power Morphers. This universe’s version of the classic saga “Green with Evil” would have neither Shuran nor Sesshoumaru introduced as new Rangers but already part of the established team, with the situation being that Shuran gets kidnapped by Urasue and turns evil before being woken up to his senses by having Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha blast the Sword of Evil away from him. Even more is how Shuran’s Green Ranger powers would tie him to the Green Candle created by Urasue and guarded by Goshinki as revenge for betraying her, thus making his life hang in the balance. Things came to a head when Shuran’s Green Ranger powers were slowly being depleted, while Sesshoumaru was doing everything he could to protect him from certain doom. Everything would come to a head when Shuran was trapped by Goshinki, thus making Inuyasha do battle with Goshinki and Sesshoumaru rescue Shuran from certain doom, with Inuyasha retrieving the candle in the nick of time, although its flame was slowly being depleted. As a result, Sesshoumaru decided to remain by Shuran’s side and momentarily hang up his White Ranger mantle until they try to find a way to recharge his Green Ranger powers, while Inuyasha inherited the Golden Dragon Shield and Dragon Dagger from Shuran.
To maintain this seven-member team, there would also be a legendary weapon that would end up recharging their powers in the form of the Sword of Light. Zordon was still recharging Sesshoumaru’s and Shuran’s White and Green Ranger powers, especially the latter’s with the candle still fading away, before he sent the Inurangers on a mission to retrieve the Sword of Light to fully recharge Shuran’s Green Ranger powers. Zordon may have fully recharged Sesshoumaru’s White Ranger powers because they could not be corrupted by evil hands and were fully guarded, but Shuran’s case was more drastic, for he had been under Urasue’s influence during his abduction, and the Sword of Light was needed to make the Green Ranger powers more invincible than ever before, thus fully purifying him from Urasue’s remaining grip. The Sword of Light was retrieved and Shuran was officially back in business as the Green Ranger. The Sword of Light was going to be later used for Shunran when her Pink Ranger powers were slowly being depleted by Urasue’s and Naraku’s corruption of them during the third season, thus purifying her from their corruption and gaining newer powers too. Therefore, the Sword of Light is not going to be utilised for giving power transfers but for recharging the Inurangers when their powers are running dry and in dire need of a boost.
With that said, let us get introduced to our main seven heroes. You know the drill, ladies and gentlemen, it’s morphin time and we need Ninja Inuranger power now! White Tigerzord Power! Green Dragonzord Power! Black Mastodon Power! Pink Pterodactyl Power! Blue Triceratops Power! Yellow Sabre-Toothed Tiger Power! Red Tyrannosaurus Power!
The Seven Mighty Morphin Inurangers
Take two dog Yokai warrior brothers in Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha, two panther Yokai warriors in Shuran and Shunran, and three wolf Yokai warriors in Hakkaku, Ginta, and Ayame, and you get the Mighty Morphin Inurangers. Teleporting seven overemotional and overbearing teenage Yokai warriors with attitude in the forms of Inuyasha, Shuran, Sesshoumaru, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran from Shikon Valley, Tokyo, Japan to the Command Centre may have seemed like an initial nightmare for Alpha 5, but Zordon has sufficient faith in these seven powerful supernatural warriors who are known for their strength, valour, stamina, and determination as heroes and as individuals. Whatever putties, monsters, and demons Urasue has for them during Season 1 and Naraku creates during Seasons 2 and 3, the seven Mighty Morphin Inurangers are not going to be stopped and will call upon their Zords to get the job done, save Shikon Valley and the world, protect innocent lives, and trump any and every villainous scheme that comes along their way, which is something even Jason Lee Scott, Rocky DeSantos, Tommy Oliver, Zack Taylor, Adam Park, Billy Cranston, Trini Kwan, Aisha Campbell, Kimberly Ann Hart, and Katherine Hillard would find admirably laudable from a septet of teenage Yokai warriors with attitude.
These seven main heroes also fit their respective roles with excellence and with as much charisma as any Ranger before them let alone their real-life counterparts of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.
Inuyasha is the courageously strong yet impulsive leader who fits the bill as a powerful Red Ranger, is always taking the initiative to take down evil while also being staunchly dedicated to his comrades to the point of risking his own life for their safety, and leads with bundles of encouragement, which has seen him and his family stay together as an elite team of warriors.
Shuran is the biggest, tallest, and strongest fighter who can physically give several Sixth and Extra Rangers a run for their money as a fearsome Green Ranger and is just as powerful as the Red Ranger but also uses his insurmountable fortitude to protect his teammates from every single harm all while being a superhuman buttress to those who need him the most.
Sesshoumaru is the stealthiest fighter as well as the tactician who is just as fierce, determined, and mighty as any and every Sixth and Extra Ranger out there as a lethal White Ranger and is also just as great of a combatant as the Red and Green Rangers combined while imbuing a sense of honour, dignity, staunchness, nobility, and class in his code of ethics.
Hakkaku is the charismatically witty charmer who can crack well-timed jokes but knows when to be in serious battle mode as a dynamic Black Ranger, is never one to have surrendering in his vocabulary, and is a quick problem-solver whenever he and his team are in a sticky situation, considering how well he and Ginta work together on various inventions.
Ginta is the adorably intellectual genius who can solve problems quickly on his head as well as his feet, thus showing great resourcefulness as a clever Blue Ranger, and always does his best to improve with patience and diligence as a person not just as a fighter let alone an inventor, thus proving himself to be an adept fighter who is quick and strong on his body and his mind.
Ayame is the kind and courageous team mom who always lends a listening ear as a compassionate Yellow Ranger who is attentive to her comrades, thus demonstrating understanding and responsibility as a person, and is just as willing to prove her mettle and courage as a powerful fighter armed with loads of perseverance who never backs down.
Shunran is the appreciative heart and soul of the group who keeps her friends and family glued together as a crafty Pink Ranger and is constantly prepared to use her savviness and her cooperation to solve any problem regardless of how acute or how minimal they are while putting on an optimistic smile on her face, which she does with panache and stylishness.
There is no doubt that Zordon and Alpha 5 can and will always place their faith on the seven Mighty Morphin Inurangers as an elite squadron of superheroes. However, it is not only them that would do so but also the Inurangers’ Mighty Morphin Power Rangers counterparts.
Jason and Rocky would put a gold medal of honour around Inuyasha’s neck for his courageous leadership as the Red Ranger.
Tommy would show pride, dignity, and joy to Shuran and Sesshoumaru for the former’s sheer strength as the Green Ranger and the latter’s collected focus as the White Ranger.
Zack, Adam, and Billy would shower Hakkaku and Ginta with laudability for the former’s determined readiness as Black Ranger and the latter’s quicksilver cleverness as the Blue Ranger.
Trini and Aisha would embrace Ayame with open arms for her boundless courage as the Yellow Ranger.
Kimberly and Katherine would cheer Shunran on for her sterling craftiness as the Pink Ranger.
Therefore, the Mighty Morphin Inurangers is a team truly worthy of admiration and of respect.
The Seven Inurangers’ Activities outside being Heroes
Outside their duties as superheroes and warriors, these seven teenage Yokai warriors are also heavily involved in extracurricular activities in their school Shikon Valley High and in the Shikon Valley Youth Centre.
Inuyasha is an avid basketball player, teaches Kyokushin Karate, Pankration, Bokator, and Kapu Kuialua at the Shikon Valley Youth Centre, and loves weightlifting with a passion.
Shuran is a champion wrestler, teaches wrestling at the Shikon Valley Youth Centre, and is the most dependable quarterback and MVP of Shikon Valley High’s football team.
Sesshoumaru is a Karate and Taekwondo blackbelt, teaches Shotokan Karate, Taekwondo, Jujitsu, and Judo to troubled youths, and is a fiercely formidable martial arts competitor.
Hakkaku is a practitioner of Muay Kajukenbo which is a hybrid martial art of Muay Thai and Kajukenbo, is a budding soccer coach, and enjoys circuit training with Inuyasha and Ginta.
Ginta is a practitioner of Lethwei and Jeet Kune Do, is president of the computer technology, chemistry, biology, and physics clubs, and is an enthusiastically passionate volleyball player.
Ayame is a rising activist focused on environmental issues and nature, is a specialist in Hapkido and Koppojutsu, and enjoys collecting figures and stamps from around the world.
Shunran is an arts, entertainment, music, and fashion maven, is a specialist in Shaolin Kung Fu, Savate, and Olympic gymnastics, and is a beautifully talented singer and guitarist.
Overlooking the fact that Inuyasha, Shuran, Sesshoumaru, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran are Yokai superheroes, they are individuals with their own passions first. They have their own dreams, interests, and hobbies that thoroughly define them in everything they do, and they do their deeds with as much gusto and enthusiasm as possible.
This is just a general overview of who the main seven Mighty Morphin Inurangers are. I hope you all enjoyed this, and please stay tuned when I talk about their relationships. Take care and may the power protect you all.
