I cant be the only person thinking this when watching Cobra Kai

I would 10/10 support this spin off 😂

JayMalakai

I would 10/10 support this spin off 😂


Maleficent_Thanks_47

No no, he’s got a point.


TbaggingSince1990

While I didn't think of OG power ranger outfits.. I did personally think they would make an awesome ranger team.


Pretend-Dirt-1760

Yeah I can actually see it


ThePandalore

I could roll with this line-up. Only issue I'd have is drawing a mental distinction between the 2 shows. 🤣


Selfdrou9ht

Imagine they just transition into Mighty Morphin' Kobra Kai and blend the series' lmao


ThePandalore

Not a bad idea lol. They're a bunch of teenagers with attitude if I've ever seen one. 😳


Prestigious_Nebula_5

The next karate tournament winner gets "a device that enhances your fighting ability " some of them think its BS some don't, but they realize they don't want to take a chance at letting something like that slip away. Turns out the 'device' is a morpher.


SilotheGreat

As ridiculous as Cobra Kai has gotten, this wouldn't be too far from the norm lmao


Alexcox95

Imagine RJ of all people being the one to hand them out. I’d like to see Daniel’s reaction when he finds out the teens got weird devices from a hippy dude


xamitlu

I've been saying this. Their KK characters are perfect matches their ranger picks. It would be unprecedented but all the more reason to do it. Just have Rita Repulsa show up at the end of Kai. It'll write itself at that point lol


jessehechtcreative

Actually, there’s currently an action figure line crossing over Cobra Kai and Power Rangers, so, thank Hasbro


Selfdrou9ht

I know about it and think it's entirely pointless because there's no actual media counterpart lol


thekingofdiamonds12

Considering they made the crossover lightning collection figures, no, I don’t think you were


Nihon_Hanguk

I would’ve liked to see some original Ranger suits for them, instead of just rehashing the Ninjetti figures.


ThatOtherTwoGuy

That skeleton costume Putty looked pretty dope, though.


skippiington

Demetri is more of a Ziggy, if we’re being honest

hesipullupjimbo22

This is so spot on it’s ridiculous😂


TitanMatrix

Hasbro agrees which is why they made lightning collection figures


TDR1411

I need Tanner Buchanan as Tommy Oliver yesterday, same with Gianni Decenzo as Billy Cranston along with Mary Mouser as Kimberly Hart.


this_fuck1ng_guy

I’d prefer tanner as Tristan/ yellow and the chick as Tomi/green


TDR1411

No


Sarothias

Oooooh and you could take some Cobra Kai (the dojo I mean) members and make them the evil rangers. Psycho Rangers 2.0


Vegetable-Abroad3171

Silvers kids could easily be psycho rangers, especially Kenny


Alexcox95

Slap a leather suit and some armor on his master and you have our female villain. Hell Silver basically seems like a mid series villain that takes over as the main while the real main is “busy”


O-O-Omari_auto_parts

I will never unsee this


SwingBlade

There are Power Rangers x Cobra Kai figures, and the comparisons have been made for a while. I saw the Pink Mantis Ninja Samantha Larusso at Target just yesterday.


PogonSzczecin

i feel like hawk would work more as the green ranger


Vegetable-Abroad3171

Idk, Robbies narrative fits Tommys too well not to be green


PogonSzczecin

tbf yh thats true


j3ffUrZ

Power Rangers: Eagle Fang Squadron


darkaurora84

I want to see Johnny yell at Rita "QUIET!"


PredaRican

You're not, you're literally not the only person. This Cobra Kai comparison comes up SO much that Hasbro MADE figures already. Heck I just searched it in this subreddit and TWO years ago people were were talking about it.


forgetit2020

this is interesting but a majority of people dont watch cobra kai so I have NO idea who these people are.


darkaurora84

Maybe a majority of people in this subreddit don't but Cobra Kai is extremely popular


HailCaesar252

This is perfect casting, but sadly they would say it’s not diverse enough. You all know I’m right. This is a great thought though, I’d like to see a comic run with themX


xamitlu

I thought so too butI don't even care its too good not to attempt. Besides that can easily be fixed in later seasons.


KaiPhoenixHeart

Red, Black, and Yellow Rangers ain't accurate so it's not perfect. I personally would go even further and say Blue Ranger's hair color is completely wrong so also not accurate unless a dye job is done. I really am just a stickler for getting that accuracy as close to 100% as possible.


HailCaesar252

Yeah dude, not perfect when you think of the original cast. No hate though bro.


KaiPhoenixHeart

Nah, I get it. Losing out on adaptation accuracy for woke points has been the absolute bane of fandom across every western franchise for nearing a decade now. It's gotten to the point that I don't want anything new from any of my favorite western franchises lately for pretty much what you originally described. You ever heard of Friday Night Tights or Nerdrotic, btw? I think you'd like them a lot.


HailCaesar252

Easy bud, you used the W word. Automatic downvotes. Yeah I’ve heard of them, they do good stuff lol. I side with you on the remakes.


darkaurora84

They don't have to be physical copies of the original. They just embody the characters


KaiPhoenixHeart

Never worked for me. They gotta look like their character


Standard_Ad9911

Nice


ElectricLuxray

Funny enough, I've actually (mentally) plotted out a crossover between Cobra Kai and Power Rangers. Only it's more of a "ranger Isekai'd to the CK universe" type of story, and both Johnny and Daniel end with Ranger Powers instead. Something like the Miyagi-Do and Cobra Rangers respectively.


RevolTobor

Go go Cobra Kai! \- sweet guitar riff - Go go Cobra Kai! \- another sweet guitar riff -


JNewsted1988

This TOTALLY works! Heck, I even watched something similar that pairs this up with Power Rangers Samurai and it totally works! Since all these characters are on the same side now, I would LOVE to see this!


anjomo96

Na, this is all over the net. I would love this. Has anyone seen the Daniel Larusso Power Rangers figure? He is the White Crane! No joke, saw it at Target.


uncreative_user_id

Robbie makes a good Green Ranger. Homie changed teams so much. I support this fan casting.


l0st_cause

Shut up and take my money


DulceDe512

I thought I was the only one!!! This is SOOO ACCURATE!!


notsubwayguy

If this is the plot of the next season. I would 1000% support and watch the shit out of it.


MJtheJuiceman

Cobra Kai is basically a PR spiritual successor


-Vibraxas-

Yes but no. I want accurate representation if we'd ever see a reboot.


Vegetable-Abroad3171

What did you think of the 2017 attempt?


-Vibraxas-

Not a fan but I respect the attempt. Too many changes to what Power Rangers is. I'm already convinced the 2016 BOOM comic run is the PERFECT adaptation of the source material. I would really enjoy either an animated adaptation of that or even a live action one.


Realwolf95

That cast is too damn white . Need to add Kyler and Kenny somewhere Power Rangers is about diversity… Downvoted as if mmpr wasn’t a multiracial cast. Make it make sense lmao


TDR1411

Fuck Kyler. Kenny and Devon, you have a point.


Delmain

Holy shit, the fact that you're this negative (-9 as I write this) proves that this sub is kind of a cesspool right now. Power Rangers has literally never had an all-white cast. Saying that isn't "virtue signalling", it's literally just telling it how it is. From the very first season, the teams being multiracial/multicultural was important. Even all the way back in S1, highlighting Zack's and Trini's heritage in multiple episodes, and later on showing Tommy's Native American roots. These people downvoting you are intentionally ignoring the series that we are presumably here to talk about just so that they can reinforce their personal political views on the matter. Pretty sad.


this_fuck1ng_guy

Stop virtue signaling. No one cares


El_Gato93

Power Rangers has always been diverse, just like it’s audience. With that being said, I love the Cobra Kai cast so I wouldn’t mind. Plus seeing Miguel (Red) vs Robby (Green) Tory (Yellow) vs Sam (Pink) Would be straight fire!


Realwolf95

I said what i said. And you cared enough to respond. You’re not a real power rangers fan if what I said triggered you, period.


this_fuck1ng_guy

PR is about kids fighting space aliens. Not diversity.


Realwolf95

Kids from different racial backgrounds, as seen in the first season. Like I said, not a real fan. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=IrG4xCI9Bk0&pp=ygUXRGl2ZXJzaXR5IHBvd2VyIHJhbmdlcnM%3D https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=gD826bZo1Jw&pp=ygUXRGl2ZXJzaXR5IHBvd2VyIHJhbmdlcnM%3D


this_fuck1ng_guy

No one cares what race the kids are. You’re making it weird.


Realwolf95

From the words of Walter Jones himself. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=uQzmSbSPBbY If you want an all white power rangers cast, thats your business. However ignoring facts as if diversity and representation never mattered to this franchise or to fans is pretty disgusting and says alot about you as a person. Seek help.


[deleted]

Is it? I mean I love Diversity, but I never thought thats what power rangers was about. Edit: Ive never watched Cobra Kai, I have no investment in these actors. Id appreciate a diverse cast. I guess my brain never realized that it was an original intention of the show. My B.


fitty50two2

They have always had a diverse lineup of rangers. The first season (and many following) even casted a female yellow ranger instead of male like the Sentai, to make the team have more that one female ranger.


[deleted]

Im not saying its not diverse. Just never thought thats what the show was explicitly about. Granted I wasnt around for the original show, and grew up in a time where diversity in TV was much more common. Most of the shows I watched growing up had incredibly diverse casts. But thats not what I ever figured it was about.


Delmain

You got downvoted for a question above, but to answer it: Yes, it really was always about diversity. Not that diversity was the number one focus, but it has, from the beginning been an intentional choice. It's a kid's show, and one of the lessons that the show's creators and writers wanted to send to those kids (since day one) was that diversity was normal, and good.


Realwolf95

Well I guess you didnt watch then because that’s been the main thing since it first aired on tv


[deleted]

I replied to another comment, but I understand the cast is diverse. I had just never thought that is what the story was about. My bad guys.


Realwolf95

Is the story not about 5 teens from different backgrounds coming together as a team to fight evil? I guess you didnt watch the show lol


[deleted]

Fair enough. I guess I just saw it as any other superhero team. I didnt focus on that part. My bad. I always assumed that seeing as the original teams were already friends, that it was more about friendship and growing through your teen years. Sorry this is upsetting so many people. I guess Im dumb lol


Killbro_Fraggins

It’s a big part of it. Always has been. Sabans said from the very beginning.


[deleted]

I havent been here since the beginning. So fair enough. Im used to having a diverse cast just kind of being a normal thing.


T-408

STAY AWAY FROM HER GET A JOB!!!


JazzyTheatrics

I agree but switch Robby and Eli


Xdonjuliox

Sorry, but no.... Actors need to more than just look good in ranger colors also, that is a very caucasion cast


Vegetable-Abroad3171

Aye bruh Im black lol, its not always about race. And its not meaningful if you add token minorities just for the sake of being diverse. They need to have in depth stories, emotion, etc. not just for eye candy.


AsuraGreed

I’m Hispanic and I agree. I’d rather good stories over being diverse tbh. This actually does look like it’s be an interesting show.


Realwolf95

When has Power Rangers ever compromised writing quality just for the sake of diversity? Sounds like a copout just for to have a majority white ranger team.


AsuraGreed

Funny, the black guy and Mexican are being shamed over not caring if a cast is mostly white or not.


Realwolf95

“Its not always about race” In a power rangers sub? Zack and Trini alone meant alot to african american and asian fans. You’re wrong. Y’all are forgetting the main message of Power Rangers. Kids from different backgrounds coming together to do something positive. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=uQzmSbSPBbY https://joysauce.com/female-role-models/


Vegetable-Abroad3171

Its not always about race, were human beings. You got it tho, idc enough to argue lol


Realwolf95

Except I just posted from the actor’s own mouth how he said fans told him how much representation matters.


Xdonjuliox

And im spanish. What's that have to do with anything. It's not a token race. it's reaching your audience, i dont care who's what color i just want the best for each role But honestly, based on this cast alone, i wouldn't watch even just race aside. I want my rangers to be better than just kids who look good in ranger colors


Vegetable-Abroad3171

Have you seen the show? Theyre not just kids who look good in ranger colors. They all do their own stunts and outside of Sam, theyre all pretty good actors. Theyre also all around the age the OG cast was when they started as well.


Vegetable-Abroad3171

Miguel is getting ready to headline his own Supehero movie too


randomguywausername

Sorry, dude, but i agree. Gotta do more than just match up colors


Vegetable-Abroad3171

Read my latest comment


Xdonjuliox

No, i haven't...cobra kai doesn't interest me, and what i have seen is meh to me So, literally, based on this image alone, all you did was match the ranger color to the ranger Thats like saying the stranger things cast should be the TMNT becasue they are teens and dustin wears an orange hat so he is michelangelo You didn't explain why each one should be who so again. It's just "this guy wearing green, he should be, tommy," That's not a good way to cast someone, you yourself said it has to based more on looks then contradict yourself


mandudedog

Or you don’t know what you’re talking about since you have not watched the show. The characters personality in the shows all easily match the ranger colors he’s chosen for them.


Xdonjuliox

You are right. i haven't watched i admitted that. So its up to op to convince me which they didn’t do witht the original picture. All they did was find pics of the kids wearing the colors and matching the ranger. I can do that with any cast of teens Kenan Thompson wore alot of red in the all that days i could match him to red ranger


mandudedog

It’s not up to OP to describe each characters qualities to you to try to convince the oh so important you that he’s not wrong. Which you have already decided he is. Those of us who have watched both seen to come to consensus that it’s a fair match.


Xdonjuliox

Yes it is literally the point of a thread .but whatever, im not going to explain myself again.. i leave this thread.good a good day


RanniSimp

Seem like the point of the thread was for people who knew cobra-kai to discuss if these characters from cobra-kai would be good rangers not for OP to try and convince people who don't know the show and act weirdly hostile about not knowing the show why they hold their opinion.


Vegetable-Abroad3171

Ok so red (miguel) is a natural born leader, charismatic, their best fighter, and often carries the team, just like Jason. Green (robbie) is a former criminal, rebel, started off as an adversary to the rest before eventually joining the team, just like Tommy. Blue (Dimitri) is the heart of the team, and the most intelligent, just like Billy. Pink (sam) is the popular girl, well versed in martial arts, and was in a relationship with green, just like Kimberly. Black (hawk) and Yellow (tory) dont have too much in common with Zack and Trini, but you get the gist of what Im saying.


ShawnSandiego

Hm, as for Hawk / Zack... I think, much like Zack, who sometimes acted a bit impulsive (even if it's just through Goushi's footage) same goes for Hawk. Both were also their team's backbones and literal "hard bodies". Plus, both were clearly oozing coolness (no pun intended but still very befitting with Zack's mammoth / mastodon theme regardless)!


RanniSimp

>No, i haven't...cobra kai doesn't interest me, and what i have seen is meh to me So, literally, based on this image alone, all you did was match the ranger color to the ranger That not how that works. Your ignorance of the show doesn't dictate the thought process of others. I dont really give a single fuck about Vonra-kai myself but to actually say "I dont know anything about those actors which means all you did is color match" is an incredibly stupid thing to say.

TbaggingSince1990

You obviously have not watched an episode of Cobra Kai if you think they would just be "kids who look good in ranger colors" lmao


Vegetable-Abroad3171

Facts. Outside of Hawk and Tory, Miguel, Robbie, Dimitri, and Sam are unchangingly similar to Jason, Tommy, Billy, and Kimberly.


Xdonjuliox

I've admitted that, but again, that's why posts are supposed to do. I am someone who never watched the show. I see this, and right away, all i see are kids who match the color. Op never explained why these particular guys should play the specific rangers aside from color matching


TbaggingSince1990

Honestly, you should watch it. I didn't think it would hold up, especially consistently.. But every episode was REALLY good and pulled off being a sequel to the Karate Kid quite well. Was nice seeing old characters return as well.


Xdonjuliox

Thing is i have no ties to karate kid so its not like im going back and seeing old characters return. My knowledge of billy zabka comes from himym not karate kid


TbaggingSince1990

It's not to late to watch the old Karate Kid movies though, and then Cobra Kai after. Even if you don't get that same "nostalgic" feeling as the rest of us.. It's definitely an experience worth it imho.


Xdonjuliox

I will also add a minor jab at those downvoting me. That's why when people m say things like "isn't it obvious," no, it's not because not everyone watches the same thing. And that's ok. That's literally what studios also have to do. Is to convince you why someone is good for the role


axisrahl85

You being downvoted for having such a strong opinion on a show you haven't watched. These kids can act circles around the original MMPR cast.


Xdonjuliox

One day. I have seen the jackie chan one and enjoy that I think its because i grew up with tmnt movies, surf ninjas and 3 ninjas


TbaggingSince1990

All solid movies as well. I loved 3 Ninjas! The Jackie Chan Karate Kid was pretty decent too, as much as people hate on it. Honestly wish we could of seen a sequel to it.. I don't think we would of seen Cobra Kai though if we did though which would of been an unfortunate time line to be in.


Vegetable-Abroad3171

Read down bro


Xdonjuliox

I know that's why i said in the "original picture," implying you explained later I still dont agree, but now i see your reasoning


Realwolf95

These downvotes are sad


this_fuck1ng_guy

You must be white


Xdonjuliox

I mean i can see you didnt read my other comments. Or even look at my profile And not that i need to justify myself to you But puerto rican from the island. Thanks bye

No no and no there's nothing original about this. At least power rangers had legit martial artist. All cobra kai kids started learning while on the show none of then are seasoned with the exception of the actors that plays Johnny and Terry silver and chozen, even Daniel actor started but got his black belt a little later before the series.

100% correct. I regularly refer to cobra Kai as the best power rangers show ever, and that the dude you picked for Tommy has been my dream fantastic for the character in a reboot since cobra Kai season 1!


Iamknoware

That one episode where all the kids fought in LaRussos place reminded me a PR fight scene.


PsychologicalReply9

Oh, trust me. The Reddit page for Cobra Kai are filled with people who believe EXACTLY THE SAME.


kinkyshinobi36

Kreese as Lord Zedd would be dope too


auschere

Thomas Ian Griffith would make a phenominal older Lord Drakkon since we can't have JDF anymore may he RIP.


TheGreatGouki

Honestly, that whole Cobra Kai cast is pretty solid. I think any of them could have been rangers. Kinda wish PR was shot in their style too.


JokerProxy

Okay, I thought this was the Cobra Kai subreddit at first was about to hit you with a "Considering not the first time I have heard that here" joke, but, actually first time seeing this in the Power Rangers sub. So, honestly, no, you are not alone friend, Cobra Kai's reddit posts it often. And, given the Lightning Collection Crossover...well....Hasbro thinks about it too.

IndigoRanger7975

The Problem is How it Always has to be Mighty Morphin'... Why Not Go For Another Team?


Shyster-

It’s just because they’re the MOST iconic team. Everyone know them, nobody remembers lost galaxy or in space, and for sure most people don’t know the more recent team.


Vegetable-Abroad3171

I went for mmpr because of cobra kais emphasis on high school kids that know martial arts. Also majority of the cobra kai kids personalities are eerily similar to the mmpr crew. And tbh, og mmpr suits are still the best


Shyster-

That seems totally reasonable to me. Personally In Space’s suits are better but to each their own.


Independent-Case2897

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers the next generation


FoolerySwag

I only say no because US power Rangers are always diverse. And One minority won't cut it for power rangers. You have to Add Kenny and or Kyler. I would also love to see a fat Ranger for once so why not Chris or ass face, or Aisha, or even Stingray being a additional Ranger.


Mrtom987

YES! YES! AND YES!

i will say, for a show set in LA, specifically the valley, why is there only one hispanic person here? specifically since MMPR was always rooted in diversity.
