Red Battlizer Legacy
One of the original, best and strangest things to come out of Power Rangers are the original Battlizer Armor! It began with In Space and continues to this day, with a few exceptions! Some were even included in the Super Sentai versions for the first time ever!
Here’s a quick retrospective of the Power Rangers’ Red Ranger Battlizers!

Leo, Power Rangers Lost Galaxy
Red Armored Ranger
Episode Premiere: “Facing the Past”
Info: In order to restore his powers, Leo and Karone free an old man from stone. Since the man was turned by Astronema, Karone had to lament on her former ways. This lead to the Leo’s powers being restored as well as the acquisition of the new Battlizer.
The Battlizer was destroyed in the final battle against Trakeena.

** Jungle Fury and RPM did not have a Battlizer **
Although, some do not consider Shogun Mode a Battlizer, I do. It is clearly a battlized mode even though it is used by all Rangers.
Jayden, Power Rangers Super Samurai
Episode Premiere: “The Bullzord”
Call: “Shogun Mode!”
Info: With the power of the ancestors harnessed the Red Samurai Ranger inserts a Shogun Disk into his buckle and transforms into the Shogun Ranger inside of the MegaZord Cockpit!
This power can also be used by any of the other Samurai Rangers, the first to ever be used by all Rangers.
Now, will there be Battlizer upgrades for the MegaForce Rangers?
What will they look like?
