Topic, right. Ummm... Ginyu Force as Super Sentai! Guldo = Green, Jeice = Red, Ginyu = Purple!, Recoome = White and Burter = Blue.

I always thought it'd be amusing for either the Ginyu Force or Saiyaman to meet either the Power Rangers or Sailor Moon. :lol:

And movie 12 missed a chance at comedy gold, I just realized. All those villians came back and Gohan was Saiyaman... but we got no meeting between him and the 4 members of the Ginyu Force that were dead.

PR: I wrote "morphed into action" on another board a couple hours ago. I can't find my Green Ranger saga VHS :cry: :cry: . MMPR the movie is ridiculous amounts of awesome, and Lord Zedd owns all your base.

Topic: Didn't Saiyaman and the Ginyu force have special intros in the Sparking series?
(And, yeah, weren't members of the Ginyu force at the Freeza scene in Movie 12, onl to... not do anything? :( )


... Back to action!

I used to love that shiz. Wasnt it called "Green with Evil?"

Its all about Burai though.

"Green with Evil"=Very yes. And Jason David Frank's evil laugh is probably the best acted sound to come out of him... and it's awesome.


Random Ginyu question: the team was named after Ginyu himself? Does that mean he started it and it wasn't like, older or something? What if it had survived but a new leader was needed?

With his body-switching, we really have no way of knowing how old he really was. As soon as he found someone more badass than himself (except Freeza), one would assume he made a change.

Maybe if it had gone on it would have changed names to reflect the new leader, like in Starship Troopers. Rasczak's Roughnecks become Rico's Roughneck's.

I remember a scene where evil Tommy pissed Kimberly off, and she came back with, "Excuse me for living!" Ah, classic MMPR and its soap opera moments. :P
Now I'm curious. I want to see some Ginyu Zords!

Samurai Pizza Cats/Cat Ninden is another show that parodies that style. It actually is kind of a cross-parody of tokusatsu shows and armored hero shows (like Samurai Troopers/Ronin Warriors and St. Seiya/Knights of the Zodiac).

Captain Ginyu's body that we know him for probably wasn't the one he was born in. I wonder how Ginyu originally looked.
Yamcha: Do you remember the spell to release him - do you know all the words?
Bulma: Of course! I'm not gonna pull a Frieza and screw it up!
Master Roshi: Bulma, I think Frieza failed because he wore too many clothes!
