While looking up stuff about the Phoenix to remind a friend certain things about the mythological creature, I found this entry under Film & TV.


the Super Sentai and Power Rangers franchises, there have been many mecha and Zords based on the phoenix. In Gosei Sentai Dairanger (footage used in the second season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers), the HououRanger controlled Legendary Chi Beast Star Phoenix[B], which became the Pink Power Ranger's [B]Firebird Thunderzord was based upon the phoenix. However, both of these are based off of the Chinese phoenix. In Chouriki Sentai Ohranger (footage used in Power Rangers: Zeo), OhRed piloted the SkyPhoenix, which became Zeo Ranger V – Red's Zeozord V. In Seijuu Sentai Gingaman (footage used in Power Rangers: Lost Galaxy), the mecha GigaPhoenix was at one time StarBeast GigaPhoenix a blue phoenix before it was mechanized. This became the Stratoforce Megazord which was formally the Phoenix Galactabeast before it became a zord. In Mahou Sentai Magiranger (footage used in Power Rangers: Mystic Force) MagiRed's power comes from the Phoenix and had both a Majin (humanoid) and Majuu (animal) Phoenix form, entitled MagiPhoenix and MagiFirebird (the latter is based on the Chinese phoenix). These forms became the Red Mystic Ranger's Mystic Phoenix and Mystic Firebird Mystic Titan forms.

Bobby's got a good handle on that in the first post. I would add just a couple of other guesses, the Jet Garuda from Jetman resembles a phoenix, particularly when they use the ultimate finisher attack and it lights on fire.

In Changeman, one of the warriors (can't remember if white or pink) is based on the Phoenix. But their mecha don't reflect that, being based on vehicles.

ELR ;) :D :)
