Mighty Morphin Power Rangers saw a group of high school students become a team of super heroes. They landed on television long before the Harry Potter phenomenon launched. If the group had made their way to TV at the same time Harry attended Hogwarts, some fans might have thought the team was made of Gryffindors. The various Power Rangers, while all as brave as Gryffindors, don’t all fit into that same house.
Instead, there are plenty of Power Rangers from the original lineup who can call themselves Hufflepuffs, Slytherins, or Ravenclaws. Hufflepuffs are characterized by their loyalty and fairness. Slytherins prize their ambition and power above all others. Ravenclaws seek out new knowledge. Fans might be surprised to see just where some of the Rangers end up.
10 Jason: Gryffindor
Jason, the first Red Ranger, proved himself a Gryffindor by always being the first into battle. He never put his team into a position he wouldn’t go into himself. In fact, his biggest fear was letting his team down.
9 Kimberly: Slytherin
In addition to her bravery and quick wit, Kimberly was a serious gymnastic talent. Though she didn’t leave her friends behind when her mother moved to Paris, she made a different choice for the possibility of a gold medal. Kimberly traded in her spot on the Power Rangers for a chance to train under an Olympic gymnastics coach. At least she found a replacement when she did it.
8 Billy: Ravenclaw
A little socially awkward, Billy found friends with the Power Rangers who appreciated his knowledge of anything and everything. Billy loved to learn new things, especially when it came to science and technology. His inventions and modifications to the Power Rangers technology actually saved the day more than once. Eventually, he even moved to a new planet to use his knowledge to help solve problems for beings on the other side of the galaxy.
7 Zack: Hufflepuff
More than that, Zack showed he always had his friends’ backs in a jam. He was also always willing to do the right thing, even if it might have interfered with his dating more than once on the series. Comic book stories set between the seasons of the show had him teaching his signature dance style of martial arts to a new generation of kids as well.
6 Trini: Ravenclaw
Fans who paid careful attention to Trini in the early days of the show will realize that Billy might be the smartest person on the team, but he isn’t the only one. He didn’t complete his research or his experiments alone. Trini was the only one who could keep up with his quick mind and help him get the job done. She could even “translate” Billy’s explanations to the rest of the team.
5 Rocky: Gryffindor
Now, Rocky never quite had Jason’s leadership skills, but he always stepped up when the veteran Rangers weren’t available. He was just as headstrong and reckless as any Gryffindor could be though. In fact, his headstrong nature got him into trouble, eventually sidelining him with an injury for the Power Rangers: Turbo movie, and seeing him replaced.
4 Aisha: Ravenclaw
She wasn’t quite as adept with technology as the previous Yellow Ranger, but Aisha excelled in another area. Aisha studied animals, taking a special interest in finding homes for strays. She took that research with when she made a trip to search for a Zeo crystal on the African continent.
It was her studies, and the strange animal behavior she found there, that led her to ultimately leave the Rangers. She followed her quest for knowledge, making her a true Ravenclaw.
3 Adam: Hufflepuff
Following his days as a Power Ranger, Adam took a job coaching a kids’ soccer team in Angel Grove. He taught the kids about teamwork and perseverance. When new generations of Power Rangers needed his help, he always answered the call, even with a damaged morpher. That’s the spirit of a Hufflepuff.
2 Kat: Slytherin
On the surface, Kat seems like a typical team player. Sweet, and always willing to lend a hand, she could be a Hufflepuff. Kat, however, is more cunning than a lot of fans give her credit for. Like Kimberly, she had dreams of being a professional athlete, though she preferred diving. Kat’s ambition derailed when she became a Power Ranger.
Instead, her ambition shifted to finding a place to belong and to connecting with Tommy, which she ultimately achieved by taking his girlfriend’s place on the team (and her Slytherin role). The two are still an item, revealed by some handholding when they both appeared in the recent Ninja Steel season.
1 Tommy: Gryffindor
This Gryffindor not only stepped up to the plate, but he gave up his powers on more than one occasion to make sure the rest of the team still had a chance to keep fighting. He even continued helping them out in battle when he didn’t have the same protections as a Power Ranger. Tommy also became the longest running Power Ranger, keeping the leadership role for three more generations of Power Rangers and returning for team ups decades later.
