|This article is about a/an list of special episodes in the Power Rangers franchise.|
Team Up Episodes (Crossover or Versus Episodes) are comprised of Power Rangers of the past aiding the Rangers of the present or feature heroes from unrelated franchises. Team Up or "Versus" events were commonplace in the Super Sentai franchise since 1977's JAKQ Dengekitai vs. Goranger, the first of many crossovers for the Super Sentai teams. The first official Team Up episode would be featured in Power Rangers Zeo's Rangers of Two Worlds (an adaption of Chouriki Sentai Ohranger: Ole vs. Kakuranger) and featured the Aquitian Rangers aiding the Zeo Rangers against the Machine Empire and the Impursonator.
However, Team Up episodes would not become a common practice until 1999's Power Rangers Lost Galaxy's To The Tenth Power and the Power Of Pink, a two part crossover with the Space Rangers of Power Rangers In Space (though there were exceptions). Until Power Rangers Samurai's The Clash of the Red Rangers, the last Team Up to date took place in Power Rangers Operation Overdrive's Once a Ranger, which celebrated the 15th anniversary of the Power Rangers franchise, and saw the return of veteran Rangers from previous teams, including Adam Park, the second Black Mighty Morphin Ranger.
Alpha 5 is moping around the Command Center. When Zordon asks him why, he answered that he is worried about his home planet, Edenoi, which has lost contact with other planets. Zordon tells him to continue monitoring the situation. When the Rangers (minus Kimberly, who is sick in bed) realize what is troubling Alpha, they volunteer to travel to Edenoi to help. Zordon tells them not to get involved, but only to scout. However, upon arrival, they have to face the Masked Rider, the hero of that planet, who mistakes them for spies, as Count Dregon, the Masked Rider's sworn enemy, attacks the planet's surface. When Masked Rider realizes his mistake, he reveals his identity as Dex, the prince of Edenoi. Together, Masked Rider and the Power Rangers fight off Count Dregon.
Meanwhile, Zedd attacks Earth, and Kimberly is forced to face it alone, still sick. However, she manages to get the monster sick, holding him off for a while. Zordon is forced to tell the Rangers to cut their mission short, and return to Earth to take out the monster. When the Rangers leave for home, Dregon follows them, intent on gaining his revenge. King Lexian, Dex's grandfather and Alpha's creator, instructs Dex to head to Earth to defend it against Count Dregon.
The events in this team up become non-canon in the Masked Rider continuity, as the creators felt that the Power Rangers' popularity was declining, and therefore it was better to establish an independent origin story.

As Mondo returns, he takes quick action against Earth and sends Cog Changer in revenge for the Zeo Rangers for destroying him. Lord Zedd and Rita quickly join in the fight and send down their monster, Impursonator. Meanwhile Billy has quickly aged, and the Rangers need to fix his problem before it gets worse. In the Power Rangers Zeo time of greatest need, the Mighty Morphin Alien Rangers come to help on both fronts. This is one of the three times a team up used footage form a Super Sentai team up, in this case footage from Chouriki Sentai Ohranger: Ole vs. Kakuranger.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have been hypnotised by Astronema. They infiltrate the Astro Megaship and capture the Rangers, except Andros. Andros frees his friends. and, after going through a power field, the Turtles are returning to normal. Astronema gets away, and the Rangers come after her, while Alpha works to prevent the Megaship from self-destructing. Donatello manages to stop the destruction, and the Turtles join the Rangers in fighting the Quantrons. Later, Michaelangelo asks Andros for something. In the end, the Turtles are seen gliding on Galaxy Gliders through space.
At the end of Power Rangers Turbo, Lightning Cruiser and Storm Blaster were captured by Divatox. However, Storm Blaster manages to escape, and seeks out the Space Rangers for help. Divatox contacts Astronema to ask her to be on the lookout for the missing vehicle, causing Astronema to plot to keep Storm Blaster for herself. When the Space Rangers come to Storm Blaster's aid, they are overwhelmed by Astronema's forces, and tell Storm Blaster to escape. It does, and seeks out Justin Stewart, the Blue Turbo Ranger. Reuniting him with his Turbo Morpher, Storm Blaster brings Justin to where the Rangers are, and he rescues them from Astronema's clutches. The six Rangers then travel to where Storm Blaster was being held, and attack Divatox's forces, freeing Lightning Cruiser as well. Justin returns home, telling the Rangers that if they ever need him, they need only call.

Astronema sends down the Lizwizard to attack the Rangers. During the fight, Lizwizard attack's Cassie, holding her in one spot. Carlos brings out his Lunar Lance to strike Lizwizard, but it trades places with Cassie at the last second. Carlos' attack strikes Cassie hard, seriously injuring her. When Lizwizard makes his escape, Cassie is brought to the Megaship's infirmary, where Cassie reassures Carlos that it's not his fault. But Carlos is being especially hard on himself for the accident, doubting his abilities as a Ranger.
Adam Park, the previous Black Ranger, the Green Zeo Ranger, and the first Green Turbo Ranger (and, as such, Carlos' predecessor), returns to help Carlos regain his confidence through martial arts courses and workouts, mainly to teach Carlos fight relying on his instincts and not his vision. This was not a successful endeavor, however, as Carlos finally gave up his Astro Morpher and decided to quit being a Power Ranger. Without missing a beat, Lizwizard attacks once again, and Adam is left with a difficult choice. He brings out his old Power Morpher that contained his Mastodon Power Coin. Alpha had already warned him not to use that morpher, because the connection to the Morphing Grid was lost, rendering his old Ranger powers unstable.
Despite Carlos and Alpha screaming for him not to, Adam morphs into the Black Mighty Morphin Power Ranger and takes on Lizwizard. The battle starts off in his favor, until his powers start to fluctuate and disable him. Seeing Adam take the risk brings back Carlos' confidence and as the other Rangers show up, he is reunited with his Astro Morpher. The fight resumes, and Lizwizard tries the same trick again. This time, however, when he switches places, a more confident Carlos is ready, instead jumping off his comrade's shoulders and attacking the Lizwizard.
Working with Trakeena, the Psycho Rangers have been revived and kidnap four of the Galaxy Rangers. Leo and Mike join the Space Rangers to rescue their teammates and defeat the Psycho Rangers once and for all. Or so it seemed; Psycho Pink manages to survive. She destroys Cassie's Astro Morpher, rendering her powerless, and her powers up for grabs. However, Kendrix destroys the Savage Sword that has broken Cassie's morpher, stopping the process, but her heroic actions culminate in her death and the temporary loss of the Pink Quasar Saber.
Neither episode uses footage from their Sentai Team Up counterpart mainly because both seasons never use the Gingaman and Megaranger villains Pirate Prince Gregory (a team up villain) and Hizumina (a new version of Astronema's Sentai counterpart). However, certain action scenes are similar to those from the Sentai teamup Seijuu Sentai Gingaman vs. Megaranger, particulary the group morphing sequence.
- Lost Galaxy
- In Space
The Galaxy Rangers return to Earth to assist the Rescue Rangers in finding missing people. They are found from in an unknown building and discover that Trakeena has returned and is working with the demon, Triskull. This is the second time a team up episode used footage from a Super Sentai team up, in this case footage from Kyukyu Sentai GoGoFive vs. Gingaman. As a result, the Gingaman morphing sequences were used for the Galaxy Rangers as opposed to the original morphing sequences created for the season.

The Time Force Rangers and the Rescue Rangers join forces to stop Ransik and Vypra from stealing the Solar Amulet to awaken a Super Demon. Even though this episode didn't use footage from a Super Sentai teamup, PierreBori's costume from Mirai Sentai Timeranger vs. GoGoFive was used for the Super Demon.

When three unknown creatures show up in Turtle Cove and are on a mission to change time, only both Wild Force Rangers and Time Force Rangers can stop them. They discover that the unknown creatures are called Mut-Orgs: a mix of Orgs and Mutants. They must stop them with the help of their old enemy Ransik. Originally this episode was going to use the Org costumes from the Gaoranger special Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger: The Fire Mountain Roars. However, the costumes from that special were destroyed in a fire, so Disney created the original Mut-Org villains taken from previous seasons (such as Deviot's mutated monster form from Lost Galaxy) instead, as there was no "Gaoranger vs. Timeranger" special.

Forever Red (10th Anniversary Special)
The remains of the Machine Empire have uncovered Lord Zedd's zord Serpenterra on the moon. Cole joins the nine previous Red Rangers (excluding Rocky DeSantos), Jason, Aurico, Tommy, T.J., Andros, Leo, Carter, Wes and Eric to stop the Machine Empire and save the Earth. It is Cole, in the end, who destroys the Machine Empire and Serpentera once and for all. This special is based loosely on Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger vs. Super Sentai. However Daijinryu, Serpentera's Sentai counterpart, the Machine Empire Baranoia and TimeFire, the Quantum Ranger's Sentai counterpart (who had died near the end of Mirai Sentai Timeranger) never appeared in Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger vs. Super Sentai.

It's up to Cam and the Thunder Rangers to get inside the Abyss and get Cam's morpher to undo the evil spell and team up with the Dino Rangers to battle their new enemies.

S.P.D. wiped their memory clean of the entire ordeal so it would not interfere with the timestream.

Once A Ranger (15th Anniversary Special)
Rita and Zedd's son, Thrax, has come to our world to seek revenge against the Sentinel Knight for imprisoning him in a Space Dumpster like his mother. As he escapes, Thrax forms an alliance with the Overdrive villains and take away the current Rangers' powers. The Sentinel Knight reconsitutes five veteran Rangers to replace the current team. In the end, the Rangers finally defeat Thrax and the four faction of villains turn on each other to find the Corona before the other one does. While it does not use original Sentai footage, the plot is loosely based on GoGo Sentai Boukenger vs. Super Sentai, which was also a special team-up film to commemorate its respective franchise's anniversary (for Super Sentai, the 30th anniversary).
- Operation Overdrive
- Sentinel Knight
- Veteran Rangers
Team up between Power Rangers Samurai and Power Rangers RPM. While working together, the Red Rangers of both teams come to blows. This is the third time a team up episode used footage from a Super Sentai team up, in this case footage from Samurai Sentai Shinkenger vs. Go-Onger: GinmakuBang!!. This is also the second time that footage from a Super Sentai movie that isn't a team up is used in this case footage from Samurai Sentai Shinkenger The Movie: The Fateful War. This is the first team-up in which one of the teams is represented by a single Ranger rather than their full team.
