Symbol Power

In a broad sense, the term "symbol power" seemed to describe a raw power exerted by the Samurai Rangers1. Other terms for this power included "samurai power"2, "power"3, "symbol energy"4, and "energy"5.

Symbol Power could be manifested through the use of Power Symbols (also called "samurai symbols"6, "symbol power"7, and "kanji"8), which were kanji characters written on paper or in midair9. The Rangers initiated their morphs by drawing their respective elemental kanji:

Power Discs

Symbol power could also be harnessed through the use of Power Discs10. Power Discs were attachable to various devices, some of which (notably the Spin Swords) allowed the discs to spin, producing the illusion of animation via the images around the discs.
