Adam Steele was the original counterpart of Ryusei Tsurugi from Choujinki Metalder. American actor Jason David Frank shot a pilot as Adam, for the show Cybertron (and was the title character).
- Frank also portrayed Tommy Oliver (Green Ranger from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers). In Power Rangers, Tommy lost his Green Ranger powers, and American kids were very upset at Tommy's departure from the show.
Behind the Scenes
- Saban Entertainment (who produced both Power Rangers and Cybertron) had American actor Brad Hawkins for the role of the White Ranger (the replacement for the Green Ranger in Power Rangers). However later, Saban brought back Frank for the role of Tommy, who became the White Ranger instead, and re-casted Hawkins for the role of Adam Steele who was renamed Ryan Steele and Cybertron became VR Troopers.
- The Cybertron theme song was changed to "Go Green/White Ranger Go" for the Power Rangers series.
