Bruce Hopkins, Nathaniel Lees, Mark Wright & Jason Hoyte on "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys" (1997)

The Season 4 episode of "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys" titled "Regrets...I've Had a Few" features several Power Rangers alums amongst the guest cast. The episode finds Hercules trying to convince the goddess Celesta to give an extra day of life to his old friend Jaris, whose time has come to die. Hercules relives the time he first met Jaris after accidentally killing his older brother. In these flashbacks, PR voice actor Bruce Hopkins (voice of Choobo, Ninja Storm) appears as Nehemiah, Jaris' father. Also appearing in the flashbacks is Nathaniel Lees (Master Mao, Jungle Fury). Lees appears in a few scenes early in the episode as Cheiron, the centaur who instructs Hercules and his best friend Iolaus in their teenaged years when the death of Jaris' brother happens. In the present, Jaris learns of his fate and feels bitter because of all the criminals around him who will live on. He decides to murder them to make sure the world is safer for his baby who will now be left an orphan without him. Jungle Fury voice actor Mark Wright (voice of Scorch, Jungle Fury) plays the main criminal whom Jaris tries to stop. Wright appears in several scenes as Claxon, a brazen criminal who taunts Jaris at every turn until Jaris kills him on the street in front of Hercules. Rounding out the PR cast is Jason Hoyte (Cheese McAllister, Jungle Fury). Hoyte appears as another petty criminal named Skell. He manages to survive, however, as Hercules saves him before Jaris can take his life. Hercules convinces Jaris that he'll be headed to the underworld if he continues on his murderous path.

Dwayne Cameron, Antonia Prebble, Ari Boyland, Beth Allen & Miriama Smith on "The Tribe" (2001)

In the wake of the Mallrats' victory over The Chosen, the teens find themselves with an even bigger problem: what to do with The Guardian, who appears more mentally unbalanced while imprisoned inside the mall. In Episode #34 of Series 3, Bray & Amber, played by Dwayne Cameron (Tyzonn, Overdrive) and Beth Allen (Vella, Overdrive) try to relax and contemplate their future family but are busy trying to keep the city tribes from revolting against the Mallrats and taking The Guardian to punish him without a proper trial. The mob is led by Moz, the leader of the Mosquitos. Miriama Smith (Elsa, Dino Thunder) gets much more screentime in her second appearance as Moz in this episode. She tries to pressure Bray & Amber to let them kill The Guardian for what he's done, but they refuse and convince her mob to disperse, leaving her angrier than before. Smith appears in a few lengthy scenes alongside Cameron & Allen. Antonia Prebble (Clare, Mystic Force) appears as Trudy, who is busy trying to help her friend Salene regain some sense of security after her brainwashing at the hands of The Chosen. Trudy is unsettled seeing the only thing that makes Salene happy is being around Trudy's daughter Brady. Ari Boyland (Flynn, RPM) continues his role as KC, the tribe's trouble-maker. KC appears in a few scenes of the episode as his character helps Lex with his plans to punish May for betraying the tribe and joining The Chosen. KC is also present when Amber & Bray inform the Mallrats that The Guardian won't stand trial due to his insanity, which many of them believe he's faking.
