Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

Notes

Yoshi in Ninninger

The other Sudarso, saved by the Blue Ranger.

  • Preston is portrayed by Peter Sudarso. Peter Sudarso is the younger brother of Yoshi Sudarso who played Koda in the previous season.
    • Both Asian actors are also Blue Rangers in consecutive seasons.
    • Coincidentally, his brother made a cameo appearance in an episode of Ninja Steel's source Shuriken Sentai Ninninger, portraying a bystander who was rescued by Preston's Blue Ranger counterpart.
      • However, this episode involved a crossover with Jiraiya, a Metal Hero that was never brought over to the US.
  • Preston is the second Blue Ranger in a Ninja-themed season to have a standard blue color. The first was Billy from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Season 3.
  • The surname "Tien" is of Chinese and Vietnamese origin. Preston's actor (Peter Sudarso) is Indonesian-American of Chinese origin.
  • Preston is the second Blue Ranger who is the "stealth" of the team, following Theo Martin from Power Rangers Jungle Fury.
  • He is the first Ranger to gain a super power since Operation Overdrive.
    • Theo's powers come from his training and not given to him by an outside force (injection, arsenal, Mutation).
  • In "The Ranger Ribbon", it is revealed Preston's birthday is January 3rd.
  • Unlike his Sentai counterpart, he does not get his magical powers from education.
  • Preston is playable in Power Rangers Legacy Wars.
  • Preston's roll call may have been a reference to his actor Peter Sudarso hiding his role as the Blue Ninja Steel ranger from his brother, Yoshi Sudarso until it was revealed at Power Morphicon.
