The Power Rangers universe is exciting, complex, and fun.
It’s no surprise, then, that it has inspired an especially large fan following. Some fans have even gone so far as to write their own stories about the Power Rangers and/or other things from their universe.
Here is a collection of my 50 favorite Power Rangers fanfiction.
Important Fanfiction Vocabulary You Need To Know
When reading fanfiction, it’s helpful to know the lingo.
Before we dive into the 50 must-read Power-Rangers fanfiction stories, browse this vocabulary list. Knowing the verbiage will make enjoying the stories much easier.
Alternate Universe (AU)
In Power Rangers fanfiction, Alternate Universe (AU) means that the events are not canon. For example, a fanfiction story set in an alternate universe where all seasons of Power Rangers take place simultaneously.
Mundane (or non-powered) AU takes the characters from the canon universe—aka, Power Rangers—and removes the familiar genre elements.
In other words, the Power Rangers usually don’t fight monsters in these stories. Instead, they act more like normal humans living normal lives.
A Crossover is a fanfiction story where all or some of the canon characters from two different universes interact.
In many cases, an element from one universe will exist in a different form. For example, a cross between Lord of the Rings and Power Rangers might have Legolas as a Ranger who looks like his LOTR self.
Original Character (OC)
In fanfiction, OC means original character. An original character is not part of the canon universe (in this case, it would be Power Rangers).
OCs are created by the author to act as the main characters in the story. The three most popular types of OCs include a reader insert, a self-insert, and a god-like being.
Out of Character (OOC)
In fanfiction, OOC is when the characters act very differently than they would in most circumstances.
Epilogue fanfiction takes place after the end of the canon series. These stories can take place immediately after the end of the series, or years after the end.
In fanfiction, parings are stories that focus on a specific romantic relationship between characters. For example, Andros and Ashley, Connor and Kira, or Falcon and Crane.
The Next Generation
When a Power Rangers fanfiction labels itself as “the next generation,” it means that the characters are the children of the original Rangers. These fanfictions usually feature a whole new set of Rangers with different powers and personalities than their parent.
In fanfic, a rewrite is when a fanfiction author posts the same story but with different characters and/or plot changes.
For example, if there was a popular Green Ranger series about Tommy Oliver, I could write another version of the story where Kim becomes the Green Ranger instead.
A Reunion fanfiction is one where all or most of the Power Rangers return to fight again. These can be really fun and creative.
Time travel fanfiction stories take characters out of their normal setting. For example, time-traveling to the Wild West or ancient Egypt.
Power Rangers Fanfiction (Alternate Universe)
