"Rangers together, Samurai forever!"
The Samurai Rangers are Jayden Shiba, his four loyal samurai warriors and his best friend. Together they use symbol power through their Samuraizers (Samurai Morpher for Antonio/Gold Ranger) for battle the evil Nighlok with their transformable Spin Swords and FoldingZords to ensure that the Nighlok don't succeed in flooding the Earth, just as how their ancestor Samurai Rangers have done in the past.
The Rangers refer to themselves either by their unique elements or, more generally, as their enemies do, by color.

- "Centuries ago in Japan, Nighlok monsters invaded our world. But Samurai warriors defeated them with power symbols passed down from parent to child. Today, these evil Nighlok has risen once again and plan to flood the earth. Luckily, a new generation of heroes stand in their way. They are the Power Rangers Samurai. ~~ The narrator
Centuries ago in Japan, the Nighloks of the Netherworld attacked the Earth and attempted to flood it. The Ancient Samurai Rangers, using symbol power fended them off. From them came many of the weapons that would be used by future Samurai Rangers, such as the Samurai Disks, the Spin Swords, which are still used today and Black Box, which was left unfinished.
Some years later, powerful Shogun Rangers came from the Samurai bloodline as the power was passed from parent to child. These Shogun donned powerful armor reminiscent of the Samurai powers. They were led by The Grand Shogun, who brought into this world the first Samurai zord the BullZord. However, the BullZord was uncontrollable and was ordered locked away, as more zords came to being.
Nearly 20 years ago, the 17th Samurai Ranger Fire and his Samurai Ranger team encountered the fierce Master Xandred. With earlier versions of the Samuraizer at their disposal, along with the FoldingZords, the Rangers went down fighting, managing to seal Xandred and his cohorts away for years. However the seal was not permanent.
In the 2010's, Xandred, severely weakened from his encounter with the 17th Samurai Rangers begins his attack anew. Thus Jayden Shiba, the 18th Samurai Ranger Fire, has been called to duty, along with four others under the purview of the Samurai. With the Samuraizers, Samurai Disks and Spin Swords and FoldingZords at their disposal. They manage to fend off the Nighlok.
However, as the Nighlok grow stronger, changes once again needed to take shape. The first change came when for the first time, a young man of non-Samurai lineage appeared and became the first Gold Samurai Ranger. This young man was Antonio, Jayden's childhood friend, whom Jayden had given the OctoZord to as a boy. Antonio proved to be the spike in power the rangers needed as his technological approach to Symbol Power allowed him to create new devices and weapons for himself, as well as activate pending projects of the Samurai lineage such as the Black Box, the LightZord and the SharkZord. He was also able to repair the ClawZord which had been damaged in battle years ago.
With the Black Box repaired, the Rangers were able to gain a new combat mode- the Super Samurai Mode. With this mode, a single Samurai Ranger could fight alone and finish an opponent as well as perform complex combinations such as Megazord combos on his/her own.
When Jayden and Cody, a young Guardian, managed to free and control the BullZord after years of capture, the apparition of the Shogun Rangers' leader, The Grand Shogun appeared and vowed that their power now belongs to them. This means that on top of all the powers that they have inherited, along with the powers they themselves activated, the Rangers now had access to the special power of the Shogun Rangers, as a Shogun mode, powering up their attacks. However in Samurai Forever, Jayden used Shogun Mode outside of the zords, thanks to Lauren's Fire Disc.
The Samurai Rangers are set to appear in Power Rangers Super Megaforce. Their role as Legendary Rangers are yet to be seen.
Unlike Ranger teams before them, the Samurai Rangers have several battle modes used in specific situations.
- Mega Mode - armor plating for piloting Zords
- Super Samurai Mode - access to all Rangers' powers. Only one ranger can access this at a time.
- Super Mega Mode - armor plating for piloting Zords while in Super Mode. Only one ranger can access this at a time.
- Shark Attack Mode - use of the special Shark Sword and SharkZord. Only one ranger can access this at a time.
- Mega Shark Mode - armor plating for piloting Zords while in Shark Attack Mode. Only one ranger can access this at a time.
- Shogun Mode - power up for Zord battles, also used as Battlizer, primary mode of historic predecessors.

- It appears that the Samurai Rangers follow the Jungle Fury Rangers in chronological order while the Ranger Operators from RPM are running concurrently in another dimension.
- The Samurai Rangers were Saban's inspiration for their 2012 April Fools' gag- Morphume.
