Standard Disc

The Samurai Rangers' Power Discs[1][2] are 'animation' discs that store symbol power for use with the Spin Sword, its various forms and their zords. The Rangers each initially have a Standard disc and a Power DiscDay Off based on their animal zords. There are other discs tied to zords that have been lost before but have been regained. When used with the Spin Sword, the discs are spun and the mirrored hilts reveal each discs animation as the power is summoned.

Samurai Disc

The Samurai Disc [3] is the standard disc seen attached to the Spin Sword for basic attacks. When spun, it transforms the Spin Sword into a ranger's personal weapon. It is also installed onto their zord consoles and spun to start up the zords.

Megazord Shield Disc

When spun during Megazord battles, this disc gives the Samurai Megazord a shield.

Power Discs

Each rangers disc serves two purposes. They power up the Spin Sword with each Ranger's element, as well as serve as attachments to the Rangers' personal weapons, post-transformation.
