MIKE

   

Mike - The Green Samurai Power Ranger

In the city, Mike is playing a video game with his friends.  His case is clipped onto his belt.  He has been training to be a Samurai Power Ranger all his life and was awaiting the call to join the team.  Later, Mike is walking along, eating his hamburger, when a green arrow knocks the hamburger out of his hands, as it lands in the middle of it and pins it to the ground.  Mike takes a few moments and stares at his green case.  He gives a nod and takes off running.  Mike sees three teens and heads in their direction.  He tells them they must be his peeps.  Kevin asks him if he is the Red Ranger?  Mike replies, no, I'm mighty green.  The sound of a horse makes them all turn towards the sound.  Jayden on the horse, comes riding up.  Mike comments, with an entrance like that, you have to be the Red Ranger.  Jayden confirms that he is the Red Ranger.  Kevin eagerly states, we are your team of samurai.  Jayden warns them, if you follow me, there is no turning back.  Either we defeat the Nighlok together, or they will take over the world.  I will give these only to those who accept the challenge.  (Jayden is holding up a Samuraizer.)  Jayden gets off the horse.  He tells them, do not accept because you have been trained to do so.  Accept only if you are willingly to commit and fight as a Samurai Ranger with all your heart.  Mike, Mia, Emily, and Kevin consider his words carefully.  Kevin is the first to response, without hesitation.  Mia adds, I've been planning for this since I was a little girl, so yes.  Emily eagerly tells him, I'm ready to give it all I got.  Mike tells them, okay, okay, do we have to be so formal.  Let's do this thing.  Jayden takes out the rest of the Samuraizers and tosses them to Mike, Mia, Emily, and Kevin.  Not far away, citizens run in terror from the Moogers and Tooya.  Jayden shouts out, that's enough!  Tooya, sees Mike, Mia, Jayden, Kevin, and Emily arrive and comments, well it's about time.  Tooya is not impressed.  Oh come on!  Who are you punks?!  Jayden responds, we are the Samurai Rangers.  Mike, Emily, Kevin, Jayden, and Mia morph.  Mike, Jayden, Kevin, Mia, and Emily used their Samuraizers to make a symbol power to morph.  Tooya has the Moogers attack.  Green Ranger and the rest of the Rangers race towards the Moogers with their Spin Swords drawn.  They quickly battle the Moogers with their Spin Swords.  As she battles, Yellow Ranger comments, this is just like chopping down weeds at home.  Lots of Moogers line up and shoot their arrows at Red Ranger.  Red Ranger manages to keep the arrows away from him by battling the arrows away with his Spin Sword.  Red Ranger even manages to catch one in his hand.  Blue Ranger leaps in front of the Moogers and battles them with his Spin Sword, keeping them away from Red Ranger.  But the amount of Moogers becomes too much and soon Green Ranger and the rest of the Rangers find themselves in the midst of numerous Moogers.  Red Ranger tells them we can do this together.  Red Ranger's Spin Sword transforms into Fire Smasher.  Red Ranger battles the Moogers with the Fire Smasher.  The rest of the Rangers watch him for a moment.  Yellow Ranger is impressed.  Blue Ranger agrees, but tells them there is too many of them.  We got to help him out.  Green Ranger, Yellow Ranger, Blue Ranger, and Pink Ranger charge into battle.  Blue Ranger battles several Moogers with his Hydro Bow.  Pink Ranger uses her Sky Fan to battle and defeat her batch of Moogers.  Yellow Ranger battles and destroys several Moogers with her Earth Slicer.  Green Ranger uses his Forest Spear to destroy his batch of Moogers.  The Moogers are destroyed, but Tooya is still there.  Tooya tries to blast Red Ranger, but he protects himself with the Fire Smasher.  Red Ranger charges towards Tooya.  Red Ranger strikes and kicks Tooya.  Red Ranger strikes Tooya with the Fire Smasher hard enough to send him flying.  Tooya crashes into a car and falls to the pavement.  Tooya gets up and tells Red Ranger, guess what?  Your ride is here!  Tooya smashes through a window of the car, reaches in, and sends the car in Red Ranger's direction.  Red Ranger slices the car in half with his Fire Smasher.  The car explodes behind him.  Red Ranger charges towards Tooya with his Fire Smasher.  Red Ranger strikes Tooya with his Fire Smasher a couple of times.  He then picks up Tooya with the Fire Smasher and races along, until he smashes him into a wall.  Red Ranger strikes Tooya again with the Fire Smasher.  Tooya is defeated.  The Fire Smasher reverts back to the Spin Sword.  Blue Ranger tells Red Ranger, great moves.  You really are a master samurai.  Red Ranger thanks him.  Red Ranger warns the rest of the Rangers, they are not done.  Each Nighlok has two forms.  You saw the first, get set for the mega monster.  Sure enough, Tooya grows into mega monster mode.  Tooya tries to stomp on the Rangers, but they leap out of the way.  Green Ranger can't believe how big Tooya is.  Pink Ranger wonders how they are suppose to fight him now?  Blue Ranger is confident they can fight this Nighlok.  He reminds them to remember their training.  We all have our own folding zord.  If we each use our symbol power, we can morph into mega mode.  Red Ranger tells Blue Ranger he is right, follow my lead.  Red Ranger summons his zord, and soon the rest of the Rangers do the same.  The Rangers are inside their folding zords.  Green Ranger, Blue Ranger, Pink Ranger, and Yellow Ranger are impressed.  The Rangers quickly go into battle with their folding zords.  Tooya tries to blast them.  Lion zord attacks Tooya with a flying leap.  Tooya powers up his swords and tries to blast Lion zord, but misses him.  Dragon Folding Zord comes in from the left.  Ape Folding Zord attacks from the right.  Ape Folding Zord lands several punches on Tooya's face.  Ape Folding Zord leaps on top of a building, goes into case mode, and tumbles down the side of the building, striking Tooya on the way down.  Tooya is knocked off his feet.  Pink Ranger is ready to get into the action.  Turtle Folding Zord creates a dust storm and heads straight towards Tooya.   Tooya quickly strikes Turtle zord away.  Turtle zord lands inside the mouth on Tooya's skirt.  Turtle zord is stuck.  Bear zord quickly comes to her aid.  Tooya fires at Bear zord.  It doesn't stop Bear zord from attacking Tooya.  Tooya picks up Bear zord.  Bear zord quickly goes into case mode and lands on Tooya's foot.  The mouth on the skirt opens in pain and drops Turtle case mode.  Pink Ranger thanks Green Ranger.  Bear case and Turtle case roll away.  Tooya chases after them.  Dragon case mode strikes Tooya in the head and then goes into Dragon Folding Zord.  Dragon zord strikes Tooya with the dragon splash.  Tooya is hit hard.  Lion zord races forward with a fire attack.  Tooya is hit hard once more and destroyed.  Red Ranger states, Samurai Rangers, victory is ours.  That will teach him to mess with the Samurai Rangers.  After the battle, Jayden takes Mike, Emily, Mia, and Kevin to Shiba House.  They are walking through the courtyard.  Emily comments, what a rush.  We did good!  Mike adds, a piece of cake.  Jayden tells them they could never have done it without each other.  Kevin thanks Jayden for leading them into battle.  Mentor Ji walks out, telling them bravo.  Such energy, such grace.  Mike asks, who is that?  Jayden replies, this is Ji, our mentor.  Mentor Ji welcomes them to their new home.  You've all come from different places and different families, but share one noble goal.  I'm very proud of how you come together.  Jayden responds, we just followed some good advice and worked as a team.  Mentor Ji points out that they are just not any team.  You are the Samurai Rangers.  Mike, Emily, Mia, and Kevin all feel a sense of pride at these words.  Mike, Mia, Kevin, Jayden, and Emily form a circle.  They hold out their cases in the middle and shout out, Rangers Together!  Samurai Forever!  Symbol powers float out of their cases and up into the sky.

Mike, Kevin, Mia, Emily, and Jayden are out in the courtyard, working on their power symbols on easels.  Mentor Ji is watching their work and talking to them as he takes a look at each easel.  Mentor Ji:  "There is more to being a Power Ranger than mastering a sword.  You must also learn to use your inherent samurai symbols."  Mentor Ji pauses by Jayden.  Mentor Ji:  "Aha, fire symbol."  The paper on the easel burns as does the brush Jayden is holding.  Jayden blows out the fire on his brush.  Next up is Kevin.  Mentor Ji:  "Yes, water."  Water splashes on Kevin's face.  Mentor Ji pauses at Emily's easel.  Mentor Ji:  "Good, earth symbol."  A boulder appears on the paper and then drops off, landing on Kevin's foot.  Kevin hops around in pain.  Emily hurries over to Kevin.  Emily:  "Sorry!  Are you okay?!"  Kevin:  "Yeah, I'm fine."  Mentor Ji chuckles and then walks over to Mia to look at her power symbol.  Mentor Ji:  "The symbol for wind."  Wind leaves the easel and blows through Mia's hair and she smiles.  Mentor Ji:  "Very good."  Mike is struggling with his power symbol.  Mike:  "That's not right.  Is it this way?"  Mike quickly does a few more strokes.  Mike:  "That's it!"  Mentor Ji walks over to Mike and looks at his power symbol.  Mentor Ji:  "The order of the strokes is wrong.  Mike, you must practice more."  Mike:  "Okay, I get it, practice."  Mike holds his brush towards the easel and pauses, unsure of what to do.  Mike quickly looks at Mentor Ji and puts his hand on Mentor Ji's shoulder.  Mike:  "How about a lunch break?  You'll be amaze at how well I practice after two slices of pizza."  Mentor Ji glances at Mike's hand and Mike removes his hand quickly.  They both look at his easel.  Later, Kevin is inside working out on the punching bag.  Mike is watching him, as he makes obnoxious sounds as he drinks.  The sound distracts Kevin.  Mike:  "Hey Kev.  You ever take a break?"  Kevin:  "Every second that you're not training is a second wasted."  Mike:  "Hey! Blow a gasket!"  Mike continues to watch Kevin as he makes obnoxious sounds as he finishes his drink.  Mike:  "Alright, let's see if your practice makes perfect."  Mike and Kevin spar.  Soon Mia runs in.  Mia:  "Hey guys!  I can't find Emily."  The three decide to search Panorama City.  Mia:  "Emily!"  Kevin runs through the city.  Kevin:  "Emily!"  Mike searches as well.  Mike:  "Emily!"  Mike pauses as he spots a kabob stand.  Mike:  "Hmmm.  That smells good."  Kevin searches the streets, passing a bus as he continues to call out for Emily.  Kevin:  "Emily!  Emily!".  After awhile, Mike, Kevin, and Mia meet inside a building.  Mia looks at Kevin.  Mia:  "Any sign of Emily?"  Kevin:  "No."  Mia looks over at Mike, who is eating a kabob.  Mia:  "Mike, how about you?"  Mike:  "How about what?"  Kevin:  "About Emily!  Were you even looking for her?"  Mike:  "Yeah, but I got hungry.  Emily probably went out sightseeing or shopping or something.  I'm sure she's okay."  Kevin gets frustrated.  Mia is more concern.  Mia:  "I don't know.  She's a country girl.  She wouldn't wander around the city by herself."  Kevin looks with longing at Mike's kabob.  Mike notices the look.  Mike:  "You want a bite?"  Kevin:  "No thanks.  I never snack between meals when I'm samurai training.  Mike gets aggravated.  Mike:  "When aren't you in training?"  Kevin:  "Never."  Mia:  "Wow.  You're really serious about the samurai lifestyle."  Kevin:  "Of course.  Aren't you?"  Mia:  "Yes, but I'd also want to have a normal life.  You know, find my Prince Charming some day.  I'm getting use to the idea that now I'm a samurai, but it's a little scary."  Kevin:  "Well, it's a big adjustment.  You'll get use to it."  Mia:  "What about you?  I heard you left your dreams of swimming in the Olympics to be here Kevin."  This hit a nerve with Kevin and he walked a little a way from Mia.  Mia:  "Don't you miss it?"  Kevin:  "No.  When a samurai decides to serve, he is committed.  Forever."  Mike:  "Wow.  Forever?  That's a long time to go without a snack."  Mia:  "Hey!  There she is!"  Mike, Kevin, and Mia hurried over to the windows and spotted Emily training in a park area.  They quickly headed out and towards the park.  Mia:  "Emily!"  Emily stopped training as the three walked up.  Mike:  "You've been training all by yourself?"  Kevin was impressed.  Kevin"  "Yes, the dedication of a samurai."  Emily:  "It's not just that."   I promised my big sister, I would work hard so that I would be just as good a fighter as the rest of you.  Kevin is puzzled, your big sister?  Emily tells them her big sister was suppose to become the Yellow Ranger.  But she got sick.  I had to take her place.  Mike is impressed as well.  Wow.  That's a lot to ask of you.  Emily tells them, it's been tougher seeing her go through her illness.  And anyway, I wasn't a super star at school.  Mia tells her, don't sell yourself short.  Emily replies, oh I do have talent.  I'm really good at playing the flute and can definitely handle a sword.  So, becoming a Power Ranger is a fresh start for me.  Kevin states, did you hear that?  She has the heart of a true samurai warrior.  Mike tells her, you've been training hard.  You need this more than I do and offers her a kabob.  They return to Shiba House, soon the gap sensor goes off.  Mike asks, what's that?  Mentor Ji explains, that's a gap sensor.  It goes off the moment a Nighlok comes through a gap from the Netherworld.  Mentor Ji pressed his hand down on a coffee table.  A map of the city appears.  The map makes a beeping sound and there is an area of the city that has a circle that ripples out.  Mike, Kevin, and Mia all take a closer look, impressed.  Mentor Ji presses the circle area and a more detailed map of the area appears.  Emily asks, where are they?  Mentor Ji replies, city hall.  Jayden walks in and quickly looks at the map.  He tells his team, samurai, we have a battle to fight.  Jayden races out of the house.  Mike, Kevin, Mia, and Emily make no move, unsure of what to do.  Mentor Ji tells them, don't just stand there, follow him.  Mike, Kevin, Mia, and Emily race out to follow Jayden.  Scorpionic and several Moogers are attacking the city when Mike and his friends arrive.  Suddenly the Lion Folding Zord flies in and attack Scorpionic.  Scorpionic tries to shoo Lion zord away, calling it a tin can.  Lion Folding Zord lands on Jayden's hand.  Scorpionic notices the five teens and asks, who's this?  Mike, Kevin, Mia, Jayden, and Emily did not reply, instead they morph.  The Samurai Power Rangers face down Scorpionic and the Moogers with their Spin Swords drawn.  Scorpionic commands the Moogers to attack.  The Moogers race towards the Samurai Power Rangers.  The Power Rangers race towards the Moogers.  Soon the Rangers are fighting the Moogers with their Spin Swords.  They do well against the Moogers, but there are a lot of them.  Blue Ranger transforms his Spin Sword into his Hydro Bow.  Blue Ranger eliminates several Moogers with the Hydro Bow.  Pink Ranger summons her Sky Fan.  Pink Ranger defeats several Moogers with her Sky Fan.  Green Ranger uses his Forest Spear to battle and destroys several Moogers.  Red Ranger uses his Fire Smasher as he battle and destroys a batch of Moogers.  Red Ranger notices an explosion and runs over to check it out.  It's Scorpionic, still destroying buildings with his tail.  Red Ranger runs up to him and tries to hit him with his Fire Smasher, instead the Fire Smasher gets caught in Scorpionic's sword.  Eventually Red Ranger is able to free his Fire Smasher.  Red Ranger battles Scorpionic with his Fire Smasher.  A short distance away, Yellow Ranger is battling a group of Moogers with her Earth Slicer.  Yellow Ranger throws her Earth Slicer, and it destroys each Mooger it hits.  But it continues and hits Red Ranger.  Scorpionic takes advantage of the distraction and strikes Red Ranger hard.  Red Ranger goes flying, hits a building, and slides down to the ground.  His Spin Sword lands a distance away from him.  Yellow Ranger feels awful and she runs over to check on Red Ranger.  Scorpionic is about to strike.  Green Ranger, Blue Ranger, and Pink Ranger see what is about to happen and race over.  Yellow Ranger stands protectively in front of Red Ranger as the rest of the Rangers reach them.  Scorpionic uses his whirlwind attack.  The attack hits Green Ranger, Blue Ranger, Yellow Ranger, and Pink Ranger and they demorph as they hit the ground.  Scorpionic comments, beating them is like taking candy from a baby.  Scorpionic walks away.  Red Ranger struggles as he stands back up.  Mike, Kevin, and Mia all struggle to get up.  Red Ranger tells them, we must stand and be strong.  Either we defeat the Nighlok or we will be defeated.  Understood?!  Red Ranger falls to his knees.  Mike, Kevin, and Mia continue to struggle to get up.  Emily lays face down and barely moves.  She makes a groaning sound and Mia goes to her side.  She asks Emily if she is okay?  Red Ranger tells Mia to stay with Emily.  Red Ranger notices there is a young girl that has been left behind.  I must save her.  Still struggling, Red Ranger walks towards his Spin Sword and pulls it out of the rubble.  Emily tells the rest, don't worry about me.  Go help the Red Ranger.  Red Ranger suddenly charges towards Scorpionic with his Spin Sword.  Red Ranger and Scorpionic battle once more.  The young girl, Hannah, stays hidden and watches them.  Red Ranger strikes Scorpionic and he goes flying.  Scorpionic lands on the rubble hard.  Red Ranger quickly runs over to Hannah, telling her not to worry.  We will protect you.  The girl's mother appears and yells for Hannah.  Red Ranger takes Hannah to her mother.  Mike and Kevin manage to stand up.  Mia helps Emily up.  The mother takes Hannah away.  Scorpionic is furious.  Red Ranger and Scorpionic face each other.  Mike tells his friends, you got to admit, that dude has style.  Scorpionic and Red Ranger charge towards each other with their weapons drawn.  Emily walks a little apart from her friends.  Emily tells them, he is able to stay so focus on defeating evil.  I only hope I'm up to the challenge.  Scorpionic and Red Ranger continue to battle.  Scorpionic knocks Red Ranger down.  Scorpionic prepares another whirlwind attack.  Mike, Kevin, Emily, and Mia morph.  The four Rangers charge forward with their Spin Swords.  Scorpionic launches his whirlwind attack, but it misses the Rangers.  The Rangers leap towards Scorpionic.  Red Ranger is the first to strike Scorpionic with his Spin Sword.  Blue Ranger strikes Scorpionic with his Spin Sword.  Pink Ranger is the next to strike Scorpionic with her Spin Sword.  Green Ranger is next as he strikes Scorpionic with his Spin Sword.  Then Yellow Ranger strikes Scorpionic with her Spin Swords.  The four Rangers gather around Red Ranger.  Blue Rangers asks, what now?  Red Ranger replies, our Spin Swords will turn him into dust.  With their Spin Sword, the Rangers use the quintuple slash to defeat Scorpionic.  In a few moments, Scorpionic grows to giant size.  The Rangers summon their zords.  The zords race towards Scorpionic.  Scorpionic swings his swords at them.  Red Ranger tells the team, zords are not enough here.  We have to combine forces.  Blue Ranger gets excited.  A zord combination, right?  Let's do it!  Green Ranger, Pink Ranger, and Yellow Ranger are ready.  Blue Ranger gives the command, zords combine!  The four zords, in case mode, are stack on top of each other.  Blue Ranger announces they are ready.  Pink Ranger is confused.  Are we suppose to look like this?  Blue Ranger replies, I'm not sure.  Scorpionic is confused as well.  What is that?  A Ranger totem pole.  Yellow Ranger replies, if totem pole crushes Nighlok, you got it!  Scorpionic states, you baby Rangers are playing with blocks?  Red Ranger is still flying around in his zord.  He asks Blue Ranger, what have you done?  Blue Ranger becomes alarmed.  Oh no!  Did I make a mistake? Red Ranger tells Blue Ranger, you left me out.  Blue Ranger feels bad.  Oh no!  I did it wrong!  Green Ranger is not happy about being the low man on the totem pole.  Green Ranger starts to shake his zord, which makes the whole thing start to wobble.  Scorpionic laughs and swings his sword, hitting the zords and knocking them down.  Red Ranger states, this time, I'll start it.  The zords combine once more, this time forming the Samurai Megazord.  Blue Ranger apologizes to the rest of the Rangers.  Yellow Ranger replies, no worries Kev.  We got it now.  Scorpionic charges towards the Megazord.  Samurai Megazord and Scorpionic battle with their swords.  Scorpionic swings and misses the Megazord, hitting a building instead.  The battle continues between Scorpionic and Samurai Megazord.  Samurai Megazord knocks Scorpionic to the ground.  Scorpionic gets back up and summons several giant Moogers.  The giant Moogers soon have the Megazord surrounded.  Scorpionic screams, attack!  Samurai Megazord battles the giant Moogers.  Several of the giant Moogers have chains and they throw them at Megazord's hands.  Samurai Megazord's hands are pulled tight and cannot defend itself as the rest of the Moogers use their staffs to strike it.  Scorpionic laughs.  Yellow Ranger asks, what do we do now?  Red Ranger tells them to stay strong, stay brave.  Red Ranger gives the command, furious lion howl.  The lion head roars and flames shoot out, hitting a couple of the Moogers.  Samurai Megazord then uses the chains to lift the remaining Moogers up in the air.  The four Moogers crash into each other.  Samurai Megazord uses it's sword and battles the Moogers.  Scorpionic backs away, hiding behind the giant Moogers.  Samurai Megazord battles the Moogers and destroys them one by one.  Samurai Megazord faces down Scorpionic.  Samurai Megazord uses it's Samurai Strike against Scorpionic.  Scorpionic is destroyed.  The Rangers are jubilant.  After the battle, Mike, Kevin, Mia, and Jayden return to Shiba House in high spirits.  Emily is lagging behind her friends and a little sad.  Mentor Ji greets them, telling them well done, all of you.  Jayden thanks him.  Mike notices Emily's expression and asks her, what's up?  Emily tells them, well I almost let you all down today.  Jayden tells her, you did great.  You were really strong.  Mia walks over to Emily and tells her, your big sister would be really proud of you.  Jayden's and Mia's reassurances comfort Emily and she feels better.  Mike announces he has a surprise for them.  I've learned a new symbol.  Mentor Ji is pleasantly surprised.  Jayden and Mentor Ji exchange amused glances.  Mike does the power symbol for fun and confetti falls from the ceiling.  Mike back flips into the area and starts dancing.  Emily bursts out laughing.  Mia and Jayden grin.  Mike continues his dance moves.  Kevin and Mentor Ji nod their heads in unison.  Emily continues to laugh.  Mike finishes his dance routine to the amusement of his friends.
