Green Samurai Ranger


"Green Ranger, ready!"

Mike is Samurai Ranger Forest, the Green Samurai Ranger in Power Rangers Samurai. He loves video games and is a bit of a rebel. As Green Ranger, he pilots the Bear FoldingZord and controls the element of forest.

Personality

Mike is a slacker who also likes hanging out with his friends. He is effective as a Ranger, though his sense of humor and lazy tendencies don't always line up with the ways of the Samurai.

Mike Season 1

SS Green Zord Symbols

BearZord and BeetleZord Symbols

Mike first appeared when Mentor Ji's call to arms took out a cheeseburger he was eating Origins. He was revealed to be the Green Ranger, and soon proved that despite his slacking, he was a very capable fighter.

Not much has been revealed about Mike's past. It is presumed that Mike's father was the previous Green Ranger. It was established early on, however, that he was far different from his fellow Rangers. Unlike the others' unwavering dedication, Mike had no problems stopping for a bite to eat, or putting his training on hold for fun. While this keeps him one of the more well-adjusted members of the Samurai team, it does show during battle, as he is commonly depicted as rushing in early, and being knocked out quickly.

However, Mike has been shown to be a hard worker when given the right motivation, as he trained tirelessly to get strong enough to master the Beetle Disc Forest for the Trees, when it is given to Mia instead of him. It eventually pays off, and he earns the Beetle Disc to keep.

His greatest time to shine came when four of the Rangers get switched with inanimate objects, leaving just him and Emily. Ji gives him the Black Box, and with its power, he and Emily prevail.

After Master Xandred's defeat Mike goes with EmilySamurai Forever.

Notes

  • Mike is the second Ranger to use the Green Samurai Ranger title, after Cameron Watanabe in Ninja Storm.
  • The character on his helmet is the kanji character for "Wood," but the writers for Samurai decided to translate it to "Forest," perhaps to avoid double entendre remarks. However, it works, because the kanji for "Forest" (森, mori) is practically three "Wood" kanji.
  • In Chinese, Mike's kanji character is "Tree."
  • Early scripts listed his name as "Parry."
  • Like his Sentai counterpart Chiaki, Mike is a big video game player and he has somewhat of a rebellious nature as well. However, Mike is a more toned down version of Chiaki.
  • It is revealed in "Something Fishy" that Mike is claustrophobic.
  • Mike, Emily, and Kevin are the only Rangers so far not given surnames.
    • In an interview for the Youtube show That Hashtag Show. [1], Hector David Jr. says that Mike's last name is Jackson. However, no in-show evidence or related material states this. Also, in the same interview he states erroneously that the city where the Rangers are located is in New Zealand, and not Panorama City.
  • In the Japanese dub of Power Rangers Samurai, Mike is voiced by Wataru Hatano.
