Music[edit]

Opening Theme

Denji Sentai MegaRanger 電磁戦隊メガレンジャー (Second part starts with eps. 33)

Singer: Fuuga Naoto (風雅なおと)
Lyrics: Hatte Saburou (八手三郎)
Music: Oku Keiichi (奥慶一)
Ending Themes

Ki no Sei Kana 「気のせいかな」(Eps. 1 - 20,31 - 50)

Singer: Fuuga Naoto (風雅なおと)
Lyrics: Hatte Saburou (八手三郎)
Music: 鷹虎

Bon Dancing MegaRanger 「Bomb Dancing メガレンジャー」(Eps. 21 - 30)

Singer: Asakawa Hiroko (朝川ひろこ)
Lyrics: Fujibayashi Shoko (藤林聖子)
Music: Sahashi Toshihiko (佐橋俊彦)
Note, the official English name for the song is incorrect. It should be Bon, referencing the Bon Festivals that Japan holds during the summer. The events in this ending sequence are examples of things that happen at a Bon Festival.

Trivia[edit]

  • The sub-plot of Kenta being recruited by iNet after defeating an expert player on the MegaRanger video game was inspired by the 1984 film The Last Starfighter, where Alex Rogan was recruited by the Star League after setting a new record score on the Starfighter arcade game.
  • MegaRanger is the first Sentai in the modern day 7:30 on Sunday morning time slot. Sentai had been in the Friday time slot since 1989, when TurboRanger moved into it from Saturday nights.
    • MegaRanger started off in a 25 minute time slot, but after the move to Sunday mornings, it received a 30 minute slot instead. This is the first Sentai series to be 30 minutes long, since Dynaman in 1983.
