Default Was the Astro Megazord really a Megazord?

Think about it.

It was simply a transforming zord, but that alone does not a megazord make.


The rescuezords had humanoid modes, but were not indiviual megazords.


For that matter the Delta Megazord was not a megazord either.

Only the Mega Voyager was technically a megazord in PRIS.

Yeah it cant become the astromegazord withonly its own components. It needed the shuttle. If 2 dont make a megazord, then the thundermegazord isnt one either. Cause only hunter and blakes zords are needed to form it.

Timeshadow is a question though, same for qrex.

If it has 5, 3, or 2 individual zords which form a robot, it's a megazord.
Ex. Zeo Megazord

If it starts out as a ship, animal or a vehicle and transforms into a robot, it's a megazord.
Ex: White TigerZord.
I quote Tommy: "Tigerzord, convert to warrior mode now!"

The Delta Megazord is really the only exception. The Astro Megazord is a two parter like the second Thunder Megazord. Although thinks like the Time Shadow and Quantasaurus Rex, I don't consider Megazords. I think lately they just use term "Megazord" all willy nilly.

Yeah, that's ridiculous. The White TIgerzord is not a Megazord by itself. The Mega Tigerzord is somewhat of a Megazord, just the title isn't needed like the Defender Torozord.

I don't know why they call the Samurai Star a Megazord either. It's pretty stupid if you ask me.

Actually, I don't consider the Samurai Star a Megazord, but at least the Astro Megazord is formed by two Zords.

I'm not saying the individual zords are megazords. What I was trying to say:
A megazord can consist of individual zords which combine to form one big zord.
Also, a megazord can just be one individual zord which can form into one big zord.
My motto is: If the robot is big or huge, it's a megazord.
Obviously, the Mini-zord is NOT a megazord. Why? It's a SMALL individual zord.

The Rescuezords (in high stance mode) were no smaller than your average robot. It was about the same size as the Robo Racer, which also wasn't a Megazord, but I think you get my point.

The same thing goes for the Astro Megaship, it's a ship that becomes a bigger zord, or in this case, just a zord, since the Astro Megaship isn't techinicaly a zord. So, it's a Megazord, just like the Tiger Zord, the Mega Winger, the Delta Megazord, etc.

It's that, or: In the Power Rangers' world, every big thing that transforms into another big thing is a Megazord by default.
Yes! Someone finally gave the Megazord philosophy!

As far as I'm concerned, any large, major zord that is capable of transforming into a humanoid robot mode (or only has that mode), and is capable of effectively fighting a monster uncombined with other zords is a Megazord.
Astro Megazord, Delta Megazord, Defender Torozord, Q-Rex, Shadow Megazord, and Samurai Star Megazord are definitely Megazords. They can all kick butt uncombined, either alone or supporting a multipart Megazord.
Red Dragon Thunderzord, White Tiger Thunderzord, the Battle Borgs, Super Zeo Zords, Turbo Rescuezords, Robo Racer, and Max Solarzord are more dubious, but I do not regard them as Megazords. These either spend most of their time combined with other zords during battle, or were by themselves mostly ineffective.
