Request from TeiOuja
I was asked to create a team of rangers based on auxilary zords from 8 different seasons of Power Rangers. Each ranger has a belt with a buckle that says AUX for auxilary and the letters representing their respective season spanning the sides. I'm not going to lie. This has been my biggest challenge to date.
From Left to Right:
Might Morphin' -- (special ranger) based on Tor the Shuttlezord. Tor was from the second season so I modeled this ranger's costume after the white ranger. Tor had both silver and gold accents, so I mixed the two in the armor design. The power coin is meant to resemble Tor's shell Pattern.
Lost Galaxy -- (special ranger) based on the Zenith Carrier zord. I changed the black portions of the costume to gold and added some shoulder armor. The Zenith Carrier Zord was based on a shark so I tried to incorporate that while adding some blue outlines for the designs on the side.
Wild Force -- based on the Elephant zord. The elephant zord was the sixth one discovered, so this ranger has six stripes just like the Lunar Wolf Ranger.
Ninja Storm -- based on the Sting Blaster. The Sting Blaster was used by the Thunder Megazord, so I made her a thunder ranger.
Dino Thunder -- based on the Dimetrozord.
Operation Overdrive -- based on the Drill Driver. The Drill Driver was made to dig deep underground, so I modeled the helmet after a miner's helmet.
Samurai -- based on the Swordfish Zord. The visor is based on the kanji for "sword."
Megaforce -- based on the Stag Beetle Header. I went with the same symbol as Yellow and Black. There was already a black ranger, so I lightened the color to more of a deep charcoal gray.

Here's the story behind them:
Story: In the not-too distant future, an old enemy has returned to threaten the Earth. Prince Gasket, once thought to have been exiled from the Machine Empire, has managed to amass an army of past Ranger villains to invade Earth. Almost every Power Ranger team on Earth has fallen to this unstoppable onslaught.
But from the ashes of the Morphing Grid, eight lost powers are rediscovered by eight unlikely heroes. A new Power Coin is forged by Ninjor in the Desert of Despair. From Miranoi, a visitor from Terra Venture travels to Earth aboard the mighty Zenith Carrierzord. In Turtle Cove, the Wild Elephant Zord chooses the child of a former Ranger as its' partner. At the Thunder Ninja Academy, a student is given a chance to redeem her cursed legacy. At Reefside, a sixth Dino Gem is created from the ashes of Mesogog, choosing the child of a former Ranger to bring those who do evil to justice. At San Angeles, a new Overdrive Ranger is recruited by Mack Hartford. In Tokyo, a new Samurai Ranger is chosen to fight in Lauren's place. And at the Command Centre, Gosei summons an unlikely teenager to take on the mantle of the Charchoal Beetle Ranger.
Now, in Earth's darkest hour, these eight lost powers unite to form a group unlike any other. Abandoned by chance, united by fate, they are Earth's last defenders. They are the protectors of not only a Legacy, but also the future of humanity. They are the Power Rangers Auxilary.
Mighty Morphin' Viridian Ranger- Alex Scott. The son of Jason Scott, Alex is Olivia Stanton's second-in-command. Unlike Olivia, Alex is more hands-on in his approach. Having been raised in his father's shadow, Alex has a lot to live up to, both as his father's successor and as the leader of a team of misfits.
Lost Galaxy- Lt. Olivia Stanton. The oldest out of the group, Olivia Stanton inherited leadership of Terra Venture after her father retired. Having had experience leading an entire colony in her father's abscence, Mrs. Stanton is the group's mentor. At times she pines for her homeworld, but realises that Venjix has to be stopped on Earth before she can go home.
Wild Force- Alan Meyers. The youngest son of Eric and Taylor Meyers, he grew up in a fairly militaristic household. Though his two older brothers joined the Silver Guardians, Alan took after his mother, showing an interest in flying since a very early age. He moved to Turtle Cove after hearing reports of a Floating Island, but an expedition to an elephant-shaped cave led to him being given control of the Elephantzord. He is the group's tactician, often relying on his guts and intuition to devise new strategies.
Ninja Storm- Marah Wantabe Jr. Cam's niece, Marah Jr was raised by her mother and uncle to be the heir of the Wind Ninja Academy. When Venjix's army invaded, Marah was transferred to the Thunder Ninja Academy and given a chance to redeem her mother's name by becoming the Purple Thunder Ranger. Having been trained since an early age in the art of ninjitsu, the daughter of Evil now fights to protect the Earth.
Dino Thunder- Jonah Taylor. Son of Zachary Taylor, Jonah was born and raised in Reefside after his father married his old flame. But his life went crazy after he stumbled upon a Cyan Dino Gem in the Reefside museum, and it chose him to wield its' power. Inheriting his father's jokey personality, Jonah is the life of the party, but knows when the situation demands seriousness.
Operation Overdrive- Natsuki Hartford. Adopted daughter of Mack Hartford, Natsuki is-for lack of a better phrase-the group's cheerleader. Bouncy and enthusiastic, Natsuki loves life and every second of it. Even if the odds look grim, she'll never give up hope.
Samurai- Alice Garcia. The daughter of a sushi salesman, Alice was perfectly fine running a sushi business in Tokyo before the Machine Empire invaded. Unlike her father, Alice is quite deadpan and cynical, having a dry sense of humour.
Megaforce- Thomas Mercer. The son of Jake and Gia, Thomas is highly individualistic, choosing to forge his own path instead of relying on his parents' legacy. He frequently clashes with Alex, unable to see eye to eye with the Viridian Ranger.
