The beautiful and bold cousin of Jake. She looks like a teen fashion model, but is no [[DumbBlonde ditz]]. Don't make the mistake of calling her one, either. She would love an excuse to send you flying through a wall. Unlike the others, Rachel loves the thrill and adrenaline surge of combat, and she becomes more and more unstable as the series progresses. Not helping is the fact that her friends, particularly Jake, implicitly encourage this by using her for her "unique talents".

* FiveManBand : Here's the whole crew:
** TheLeader: Jake, mostly a serious levelheaded type and one that others naturally want to follow.
** TheLancer: Marco, the leader's best friend and {{foil}}. He makes jokes and questions decisions.
** TheBigGuy: Rachel, always ready for action and who's often choosing the largest, most powerful morphs.
** TheSmartGuy: Tobias is stuck in hawk morph so he scouts out the mission to gather intelligence for the team.
** TheChick: Cassie doesn't like the fighting and reminds the team how important people and animals are.
** TheSixthRanger: Ax, always an outsider by virtue of being an alien and the last to join.



* TheTeam: They all get deconstructed, but with the exception of having a female BigGuy, they are mostly a FiveManBand.

* ActionGirl: A firm fan favorite for this. Has some character traits of the DarkActionGirl, but not to a serious degree.



* {{Badass}}



* {{Badass}}: He's so deadly at Andalite tail-fighting that ''Visser 3,'' who has an older, more mature and more experienced Andalite warrior body for a host, is afraid to face him one-on-one. It must have run in the family because Elfangor was equally feared.
