|This article is about a/an set of characters in the Power Rangers franchise.|
Over the course of Power Rangers history there have been a few characters who've taken it upon themselves to join the cause of the Power Rangers or take up their mantle and name. Typically, these "wannabes" only appear for a short period of time to aid, and sometimes make life a little more difficult for the Power Rangers.
Wannabes typically differ from temporary rangers as they cobble together their own interpretation of the suits of the Rangers they are emulating (or go without any improvised suits) and rely on their own skills, as opposed to taking on the suits and powers of one of the Rangers temporarily.
They are "unofficial" heroes in the sense that they don't belong to any particular team, nor do they take up the cause for an extended period of time.
