List Rules Vote up the most credible Power Rangers fan theories.

Power Rangers is one of the best '90s adventure TV series, and easily has more than two decades of airtime under its belt with over 20 different teams running around the huge universe. Thus, it makes complete sense that with all the entangling storylines and universes, there are various Power Rangers fan theories scattered across the Internet. After all, there are nearly 25 squads of Rangers leaving giant, brightly-colored explosions in their wake. 

With the show constantly airing since its inception in 1993, fans have had plenty of time to theorize all about the characters, powers, and galaxy of the series. Since the early days of the fandom, people have speculated about the back stories of how the Rangers got their powers, if all the seasons are tied together, and which ones might be out of continuity.

Various production teams have helmed the series over the years, so some theories have been disproven or seriously impacted. Still, that doesn’t stop fans from trying to make sense of the complex universe of Power Rangers. Here are some of the best fan theories out there. Vote up the ones that you think best explain how the world of Power Rangers operates.

The Phantom Ranger’s identity was a secret so well kept that even the writers had no idea who he was. Over the years, fans have put forth various ideas on who he could really be, and one has risen above the others. Phantom showed up around the middle of Turbo and who had recently left the team with the capability of building a new Zord fleet? Billy, the team’s former technical genius. No wonder Cassie was crushing on Phantom so hard - Billy was pretty dreamy.

While Power Rangers Wild Force and Power Rangers SPD only took place three years between each other, SPD was set over 20 years into the future. This means that one of the Rangers in SPD could be a kid of a Wild Force team member... And that Ranger would be Z!

In SPD, it is revealed that Z’s last name is Delgado, which she shares with Iron Bison Ranger Danny. Since he spent much of Wild Force trying to get with Kendall, maybe they finally tied the knot and had a kid!

Tommy may be one of the most beloved Rangers, but all the evidence supports the idea that Tommy is a dummy. Not only was he learning about question marks in high school with his fellow Rangers, but he also straight up kicked a tackle dummy when he was trying to learn how to play football.

The guy also locked his doors before he drove away from a giant killer T-Rex robot in Dino Thunder. So how did he become a doctor? Look, after you save the world as many times as he has, some grad school will offer you a free ride. What university wouldn't want Tommy as part of their alumni?

In Dino Charge’s first episode, you see an asteroid strike the Earth that kills off the dinosaurs. At the time this happened, Keeper had the Energems bond with dinosaurs so that energy may have bled off into the asteroid itself. This may have created a whole new power source, which could be the Dino Gems! These were later used by Tommy as the power source of the Dino Thunder powers, so these dino seasons may be closer than fans originally thought.
