Two "monsters of the day" the Dino Fury rangers will have to battle will be Doomsnake and Shockhorn.

Power Rangers Dino Fury will take footage from the Kishiryu Sentai Ryusoulger season of the Japanese Super Sentai series.

The latest season will see the return of the Dinozords, which have appeared periodically throughout the Power Rangers canon. Dino Fury is the fourth season to be based on dinosaurs, following in the footsteps of the original Mighty Morphin Power RangersDino Thunder and Dino Charge.

Now, the forces of evil have come to claim that power, and a group of heroes must rise up to meet this challenge. Harnessing the energy of the Morphin Grid with the prehistoric power of Dino Fury. They will unlock incredible new Morphers, Dino Powered Weapons, powerful new Zords, and astonishing new Megazords.
