With all the negative news going on it the world, it’s nice to report on a fun story every once and a while – and this is no exception. A Twitter user by the name of Hurricane Gold has recently revealed that there was a Dino Charge Orange Ranger in a magazine exclusive to Germany, which can be viewed here.
I have attempted to translate some of this comic, so I will do my best to attempt to explain what’s going on in these pages.
The Orange Ranger helps the Rangers defeat some Vivix. The Rangers become skeptical about the fact that they’ve never heard of a Dino Charge Orange Ranger before. The Orange Ranger reveals to the others that he is from the 15th century and that 600 years ago pirates took over his ship sending him overboard. Under the sea, he finds the orange energem and that is what saves him from drowning at the bottom of the sea.
It is eventually revealed that the Orange Ranger is actually a monster named Hocux Pocux, who can change shape and mimic the power of the Rangers.
The Mystery of the Dino Charge Orange Ranger
So now that we know that the Dino Charge Orange Ranger existed, we have to ask another question: how did it take this long for fans to uncover this forgotten ranger?
I understand that the magazine was, of course, German so fans in the United States didn’t exactly have easy access to it. But from my understanding, this magazine came out while Dino Charge was still airing. This means that we have gone almost five years having no idea that a Dino Charge Orange Ranger even existed.
This also makes me wonder what other kinds of lost foreign Power Rangers media could be out there for people to uncover. If you have access to any of these foreign ranger magazines I highly encourage you to share it with the Ranger fan base so none of this unknown Power Rangers media is gone forever.
