A long time occurred in which she was out of action for the most part--save for a few heroic actions. Later, Catherine returned in the second AndNowForSomeoneCompletelyDifferent arc. In it, she awoke in Amise City, powerless and later gaining new allies--one of which was her biggest fan, Linkara. When she finally reunited with the old group, the hostilities seemed to flare up until, [[AssPull somehow]], she gained some sort of clarity of the world around her. And she also became blind, but that didn't bother her at all.

Formerly of ''Film/MyLittleEye'', Matthew Charles Grayson (or "Matt" for short) is the [[EvilCounterpart Dark Other]] of Carter. He made his first appearance after the third level of Hell as a voice. Throughout his other appearances, he was revealed to be a spirit, remaining in Pikadevil's Hell as punishment for killing his own houseguests. In the fourth level of Hell, Carter thought that he destroyed Matt once and for all after fighting him in order to regain his freedom. Unfortunately for the true Red Ranger, Adrian Tepes wanted to recruit the spirit.

Ever since then, Matt was around, trying to mess with our heroes--especially his heroic counterpart--and sometimes taking sides for his amusement. Finally, he wished to take control of Carter's body, but Adrian ultimately told the Other that he would be have the body of the Red Cyborg Ranger.

During the battle with The Darkness and Morning Star/Satan, Matt snuck out of the Technodrome and decided to protect the then-pregnant Carter/Catherine. He saved his ally by taking the attacks from Satan and telling him to run. Even so, Matt and Carter/Catherine helped out to defeat the fused Darkness and Satan once and for all, and the former(?) Dark Other headed back to the Technodrome...but he decided to stay with the group, the possibility of Adrian Tepes getting ticked off at him be damned.

...until Tepes appeared. Matt tried to side with his leader, but it ended up in failure. Carter/Catherine and even several Others weren't pleased with him. Matt was re-killed when Hilarity Ensues stabbed him in the chest with a sword, and the Other of Yukari took his body for a sinister plan--rebuild his body as a cyborg and insert the Retconinator inside him. Prior to TheReveal, he decided to rejoin the group in order to defeat Pikadevil, and he re-rejoined again so he could see his body destroyed in order to finally rest in peace. In the end, after a fierce battle, Matt possessed the Retconinator and was obliterated by the combined forces of Xenos, Yuri, and Zawman.

According to WordOfGod, after the HeroicSacrifice, Matt became the Lightspeed Spirit Guardian, protecting the spirits of Mariner Bay in the Power Rangers afterlife. Because of that, he's now part of an elite group of deceased Ranger heroes ([[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and Udonna, the Mystic Mother]]), known as the Spirit Guardian Rangers.

Like his canon counterpart, Matt's quite...manipulative at times and bloodthirsty. Unlike his canon counterpart, though, he can be a moron, and he got a bit more CharacterDevelopment (from a NiceGuy killer to [[TheAtoner an atoner]] who ultimately became a hero).

* ActorAllusion: WordOfGod stated that the ''only reason'' (or a major one, really) why she declared Matt and Carter to be Others of each other is because they're both portrayed by the same actor.

[[caption-width-right:100:As Michelle]]

The son of Carter/Catherine Grayson, Michael was born on April 26th, [[PlotRelevantAgeUp 2010]], after the Future arc. He was cared by his mother very much, and he usually brought joy to her life. Nothing much happened to him until he and Catherine drowned in the Pokemon arc, which was the trigger to have Sedna take his mother after the Writer arc. Andros took care of the baby until he grew up, and then [[TakeUpMySword he took on his mother's former position as the new Red Lightspeed Ranger]].

When Catherine reappeared, she and Michael spent some time together catching up. However, Ophelia appeared, and Michael was granted the task of freeing his mother from the curse of the sea. He finished two tasks before he tried to find Rika, and he was captured by Lucrezia and transformed into a Construct known as the Rangerslayer. He did, though, finish the third task before his dark side took over.

During the Revenge Arc, the Rangerslayer upgraded into a different look: Neo-Rangerslayer. This form is a lot more brutal, but he eventually got better before the fight with Lucrezia, Rika, and Catherine. After that, he blamed himself and felt guilty over what he did, but he got better.

Sometime between the Manga/{{Naruto}} and LegionOfDoom arcs, Michael decided to take a break away from the group. Unfortunately, during said break, [[VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry Maria]] and [[Manga/{{Trigun}} Legato]] showed up to fight him. All of Michael's memories as the Red Lightspeed Ranger were taken away and crushed, leaving him powerless until [[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Eirin]] and the Kappas outfitted him into a cyborg ninja body.

[[spoiler:In "Sins of the Past", while trying to avenge Rika's death, Michael attempted to attack Golomois. However, he ended up being cursed as a result. With the help of Rika and Ryan, he made a potion that would not let the curse bother him. In the end of the arc, he helped out with Golomois at the price of his Lunara Knight powers, but he was cured of his curse.]]

Years later, after living in semi-retirement with his family (wife Melody and adopted son Takeshi), Michael decided to rejoin the group, under the condition that he can visit his family every now and then.

* AllThereInTheManual: The liveblogs of ''Power Rangers: Revolution'' to ''Sailor Moon Legend of Zelda'' shows what Michael was up to after his adventures in WAOA and WAOAA. The ''Cyborg Davis'' liveblog also shows him reawakening his Red Lightspeed Ranger powers.
* AttractiveBentGender[=/=]GenderBender: In the grand tradition of giving the family their own GenderFlip forms, Michael's alternate form is Michelle Grayson. First used when the Chew Toy status got to be too much, but then returned in the second ''Monster Hunter'' arc.
* BerserkButton: Insulting or hurting his mother.
* BigEater
** BalloonBelly: Takes after his mother. At some points, it's only made ''even worse'': Michael ate over ''1,000 burgers'' and had a harder time working
it feel good, Carter?"

off. He then gained huge amounts of weight as a result of faulty nanomachines, to the point where even working it off would not work. That was, until Tim fixed that problem by converting the weight into energy.
* BroughtDownToNormal: Until ''We Are Our Adventuring Avatars''.
* TheChewToy: ''Nothing'' seems to go right for the poor guy.
* {{Cyborg}}: Guess. No, seriously, take a guess what it refers to.
* DisneyDeath: While battling against the Archangels, Michael was ''blown apart by his namesake.'' Satan revived him, however.
* EmergencyTransformation: See above. Even though he initially lost his memories as the Red Lightspeed Ranger, Michael took his new form as a cyborg ninja well, however.
* {{Expy}}: Starting from his reappearance on, Michael became an expy to [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty Raiden]], specifically when the latter appeared in ''{{VideoGame/Metal Gear Rising Revengeance}}'', if he later became the Red Lightspeed Ranger again. Aside from them being cyborg ninjas, both characters share the same personalities of being nice guys who would not hesitate to fight when pushed in the right direction; and from ''{{Roleplay/We Are Our Adventuring Avatars}}'' on, both have similar appearances[[note]]not counting any of Michael's [[PaletteSwap alternate-colored/red armor]][[/note]].
* FaceHeelTurn: Though not of his own will.
* FanNickname: {{@/Etheru}} had once called Michael "Die Graysonator" after he was reborn as a cyborg ninja. And before then, {{@/Lemurian}} jokingly stated that he would call Michael "[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty Raiden]]". The former nickname ended up becoming an ascended nickname.
* FireIceLightning: As of the moon arc, while Michael maintains his ice and lightning powers, he has occasional fire powers as a result of getting hit too many times with fire-based attacks.
* [[HasTwoMommies Has Two Unrelated, Unmarried Daddies]]: Even though one, Andros (who, in a way, did most of the raising), was a HumanAlien, and the other, Matt, was dead. It can't get more screwed up than that.
* [[IdenticalGrandson Identical Son]]: Michael would look exactly like Carter if he remained male and had a haircut. His resemblance has been commented in-game.
** Presumably, due to [[Franchise/PowerRangers the Graysons' source material's]] liking of the trope, Michael would also look exactly like Carter's dad, making him a literal example of the trope.
* InstantAwesomeJustAddNinja: Michael's cyborg ninja form.
* TheLancer
* NamesTheSame: Shares his name with the ArchangelMichael. As proven in DisneyDeath, it was a BerserkButton for the latter.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Come on, would ''you'' trust someone known as "The Rangerslayer"?
* OfficialCouple: With Melody.
* ParentalAbandonment: Kind of. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] as, as stated above, Catherine was taken away by Sedna. And at least Andros got to raise the child.
* PlotRelevantAgeUp: After the Writer arc, he grew from a baby to 20 years old, as a result of being raised in a different universe.
* PrettyBoy: Even more so than his father, Carter.
* SheIsNotMyGirlfriend: Whenever someone says that Melody and him are more than JustFriends, this is his reaction.
* SiblingTeam: With Victoria and Arcadiarika/Rika.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: "Mich'''ae'''l" or "Mich'''ea'''l"?
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: The Rangerslayer.
* ThatCameOutWrong: When he was [[FreakyFridayFlip body-swapped]] with Catherine, he later admitted that he didn't mind being in his mom's body after a while. [[FreudWasRight Three guesses as to why it came out wrong. First two do not count.]]
* TheWorseningCurseMark: Given to him by Golomois.
* TookALevelInBadass: As a result of promising to get better and watching Silver's film. He even gained a whole new appearance (muscles and a beard) out of it! But it didn't work out...until he became the cyborg ninja.
* TransformingMecha: Like a few other Rangers before him, he can turn himself into his own Megazord, by activating a command that allows his Rail Rescue 1 Zord to fuse with him.
* UnwittingPawn: First to an Other of Flandre Scarlet when he followed directions and took a wand on her behalf (it doesn't have any magic, though), then during the second Ozbourne Arc when the enemies he defeated formed a dome. The group was endangered both times. The poor guy just can't win.
* WeaponOfChoice: Plenty to choose from.
** CoolSword: The ninja-to, which can be fused with lightning and ice to perform elemental slash attacks. It can also [[MorphWeapon transform into]] the [[BladeOnAStick V-]][[BoomStick Lancer]] when morphed as the Red Lightspeed Ranger.
** KatanasAreJustBetter: When he started as a cyborg ninja, but he used his ninja-to far more, as the katanas were prone to actually not be as effective.
** SwissArmyWeapon: As in the original series, the Rescue Blasters.
* WeCanRebuildHim

Formerly of ''Film/MyLittleEye'', Matthew Charles Grayson (or "Matt" for short) [[Series/PowerRangersLightspeedRescue Lightspeed Rescue]], Carter was doing a Bicycle Safety PSA until a fan chased him. He entered a portal, and he joined the group on crazy adventures. At one point, the Peeps see him and declare that he's an honorary Peep after saving one of them, but he morphs into action. Because of his red armor, he is the [[EvilCounterpart Dark Other]] Third Peep. And that's just one example...

While the heroes were in Yukai Den in order to have Kuromaru rest in peace, Carter gained a new girlfriend, [[{{Vocaloid}} Takoluka.]] (Don't think about that one too much.) He witnesses her [[DisneyDeath death]] at the hands
of Carter. He a demon and, after the battle, mourned her. Until she survived. Also, during the Seven Deadly Sins arc, Carter made a promise to his first appearance fellow teammates: he wouldn't let them die. However, as time goes by, his sanity started to slip, the cracks in the Ranger's personality showing up...until, of course, he got better thanks to, even when the multiverses started to collapse, Alucard. Carter ended up grabbing one of the Chaos Emeralds and nearly faded to nonexistence until Father was destroyed, leaving the Ranger weak but alive.

In the Pikadevil's Hell arc, Carter wished to become female
after the third level of Hell--and he received it, calling herself "Catherine." She faced weird goings-on such as having her soul inserted into an L-Block, fighting against her Other, and having her soul taken to Hell so that her allies could save her. And during that arc, she became pregnant and gave birth to her son, Michael Grayson, all while facing ''other'' threats such as the battle between the heroes, the Darkness, and Morning Star/Satan.

In the Pokemon arc, Catherine was killed off twice: first when she and Michael drowned (they got better), and the second was when she was gunned down while protecting Andros. That second incident killed Catherine off for real, but she returned
as a voice. Throughout spirit, possessing Lip's body and using her powers until Sedna appeared to take her, punishing her by making her a ghost of the ocean. After being freed from the Curse of the Sea (which had her being taken by Sedna ''again''), Catherine was revived.

...until she fought with Michael's [[SuperpoweredEvilSide dark side]]: The Rangerslayer. Twice. She lost the second time, and she became a Revenant, complete with a different identity: the Lunara Knight. She eventually did lose to the heroes, freed from the Revenant curse from an Other of Link.

A long time occurred in which she was out of action for the most part--save for a few heroic actions. Later, Catherine returned in the second AndNowForSomeoneCompletelyDifferent arc. In it, she awoke in Amise City, powerless and later gaining new allies--one of which was her biggest fan, Linkara. When she finally reunited with the old group, the hostilities seemed to flare up until, [[AssPull somehow]], she gained some sort of clarity of the world around her. And she also became blind, but that didn't bother her at all.

After a relationship-testing adventure, Catherine has since retired and lived with her girlfriend, Kotohime. It's also revealed that she also spent time saving lives and being with her family. When she patrolled around the Full Metal Alchemist world, a bolt of lightning struck her and turned her back into Carter--this time, having the same problem as
his other appearances, own son, that of being completely muscular. He spent time with the group, and an accident when he met Jennifer caused him to rethink his plans as the sole Ranger-representative Whateververse patroller. He decided to talk to his family and plan with them to take turns saving lives, and he gained back the ability to change genders at will.

Catherine eventually returned to the group, catching up with them and having her weekly Whateververse-patrollings. She had also adopted Arcadiarika, her former fan-turned-friend, and with the adoption, she's a grandmother again. In Alyx's Origins, however, she discovered that her "sibling", Alyx, is actually her Other. Upon seeing her death, and even when Alyx turned herself into her true form, she decided to help and protect her ally at all costs. She, with the help of her family and old team, succeeded, and Alyx gave her a new power, the Red Legendary Ranger powers, for her trouble.

A few months after helping the people of Arkenea out, Catherine married Kotohime. But during the wedding, it was destroyed when Golomois crashed it. He wanted to get revenge on the family members for what her ancestors did: wiping out the entire race. Catherine attempted to talk Golomois down, but it led to Michael getting severely injured and Rika killed.

Later, while mourning over her deceased adopted daughter and worrying over Michael, she talked to Golomois, and she tried to sympathize with him. She was then told that she had until the next full moon to solve the mystery, why Golomois wanted the Graysons dead, and to prepare herself for one final battle.

With her team and her wife, Catherine headed back to her old home. In the ashes was a fragment of a sword that Golomois supposedly owned, and in a cellar was an old rune with a crescent moon shape. They talked to the former Captain Mitchell, and he explained a little bit of history: Golomois' tribe, the Juuma, once worked peacefully with Catherine's ancestors, the Lunara tribe. But, aside from seeing a figure that may be Golomois in the fatal fire, that was all he knew.

Eventually, it was revealed that the Lunara Tribe wanted revenge against the Juuma Tribe for one of Golomois' generals killing one of their own, and the former slaughtered most of the latter. Golomois was the only survivor, and he swore revenge against the Lunara, killing most of them. After the fire that took her parents' lives--which
was revealed to be a spirit, remaining in Pikadevil's Hell as punishment for killing his own houseguests. In Golomois' act, Catherine was the fourth level of Hell, Carter thought that he destroyed Matt once and for all after fighting him in order to regain his freedom. Unfortunately for the true Red Ranger, Adrian Tepes wanted to recruit the spirit.

Ever since then, Matt was around, trying to mess with our heroes--especially his heroic counterpart--and sometimes taking sides for his amusement. Finally, he wished to take control of Carter's body, but Adrian ultimately told the Other that he would be have the body
only survivor of the Red Cyborg Ranger.

During
Grayson family.

Catherine was unsure what to do, until Udonna,
the battle with The Darkness Mystic Spirit Guardian and Morning Star/Satan, Matt snuck out of the Technodrome and decided to protect the then-pregnant Carter/Catherine. He saved his ally by taking the attacks from Satan and Empress of all good magic, gave her a pep talk, telling him to run. Even so, Matt and Carter/Catherine helped out to defeat her that she'll find the fused Darkness and Satan once and for all, and the former(?) Dark Other headed back to the Technodrome...but he decided to stay with the group, the possibility of Adrian Tepes getting ticked off at him be damned.

...until Tepes appeared. Matt tried to side with his leader, but it ended up in failure. Carter/Catherine and even several Others weren't pleased with him. Matt was re-killed when Hilarity Ensues stabbed him in the chest with a sword, and the Other of Yukari took his body for a sinister plan--rebuild his body as a cyborg and insert the Retconinator inside him.

answers. In the end, after a fierce battle, Matt possessed battle with Golomois, Catherine unlocked the Retconinator Ultimate Red Wave, gaining immortality. She was about to kill her foe until she decides to keep him alive and convinced him to let the past go, so that way, they could work for a better future, one where demons and humans can coexist. Two years later, she still kept that promise, and she remained happily married to Kotohime.

She has a team of five Pokemon that we know about: [[EverythingsBetterWithPenguins Empoleon]], [[ExtraOreDinary Aggron]], [[PsychicPowers Gal]][[BladeBelowTheShoulder lade]], [[GreenThumb Tro]][[BlowYouAway pius]], and [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers Pi]][[ShockAndAwe ka]][[RidiculouslyCuteCritter chu]].

!!!'''[-Tropes Applying to Catherine Grayson-]'''

* AllThereInTheManual: Catherine's disappearance via random Whateverversal rifts are documented in two of {{@/Arcadiarika}}'s liveblogs, ''Super Sentai Vs. Power Rangers'' (at least the first few chapters) and ''The Prayer Warriors: The Evil Gods Part II.'' Her later adventures between the then-final arc and her reappearance in Silver City are also documented in the liveblogs for ''Power Rangers: Revolution'' to ''Sailor Moon Legend of Zelda''.
* AttractiveBentGender / GenderBender: Carter's female form, Catherine, obtained during the journey to the third level of Pikadevil's Hell. Turned out that it
was obliterated by an illusion, much to his dismay, but Yukari did give him the combined forces of Xenos, Yuri, power to change gender at will.
* BackFromTheDead: Catherine
and Zawman.

According
Michael drowned when they had to WordOfGod, jump off a ship, but they were entangled in seaweed. They briefly became ghosts, and as their bodies were retrieved, they went back to the world of the living. And after the HeroicSacrifice, Matt Curse of the Sea mini-arc, she was revived. Again.
* BadassPrincess: Became a princess through marrying Kotohime, but she's still a Power Ranger in spirit and a commander to her team/family first. And she isn't afraid to fight, either.
* BecomingTheCostume: She
became an actual HotWitch after George's attempt to make her outfit more tasteful backfired.
* BigDamnHeroes: She, and later her entire family and
the Lightspeed Spirit Guardian, protecting the spirits of Mariner Bay Rangers, [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=i9k31ypluou9s5j9d2w7n23k&page=21901#547511 made one]] in the Power Rangers afterlife. Because of that, he's now final battle during "Alyx's Origins", showing up just before the Black Soldiers were able to kill Alyx. Complete with her making a DynamicEntry by ''blasting the Black Soldiers with her customized V-Lancer!''
-->Sorry to have missed the party, but regardless? ''The ceremony is [[PrecisionFStrike fucking]] over.'' You will not try to kill my Other again tonight.
* BrokenPedestal: Looked up to Yumiko and befriended her [[spoiler:until she took a
part of an elite group of deceased Ranger heroes ([[MyFriendsAndZoidberg Alduin's soul. She, even though she stole Tomes and Udonna, resurrected the Mystic Mother]]), known as dead, was suitably disgusted, callng Yumiko out in a WhatTheHellHero speech.]]
* CanonForeigner: The Lunara Knight's suit is actually from ''Series/RescueSentaiGoGoFive'', worn then by Jiku, Beast Demon-Hunter Zeek. [[DontExplainTheJoke Some footage of GoGoV was made into Lightspeed Rescue, though
the Spirit Guardian Rangers.

Like his canon counterpart, Matt's quite...manipulative at times
suit was a part of the things that weren't used in the actual series.]]
** The (Ultimate) Red Legendary Ranger's suit is based on [=AkaRed=] in ''Series/GoGoSentaiBoukenger''; even the powers are the same but expanded on
and bloodthirsty. Unlike his canon counterpart, given limitations.
* EvilSoundsDeep: As the Lunara Knight under Lucrezia's control.
* EyeScream: After [[NoodleIncident an incident that involved LSD-laced cabbage, ink, staring at the sun too long,]] [[AWizardDidIt magic]], and others, Catherine can no longer see. And her eyes can never heal. Years after gaining her cybernetic eyes,
though, he can be she lost one of them during a moron, battle, and he got a bit more CharacterDevelopment (from a NiceGuy killer she wore an EyepatchOfPower from here on out.
* FutureMeScaresMe: When the group went into the future, Carter/Catherine said this about her (mostly) permanently-female future self. The 49-year-old version was revealed
to [[TheAtoner have lost the first child--Michael--as an atoner]] adolescent while rescuing a family from a fire, and after the death, Catherine asked to have LaserGuidedAmnesia. Instead, the ray blinded her.
** FutureBadass
* LikeBrotherAndSister: Catherine's relationship with Alyx was definitely a sisterly bond. Once Catherine knew
who ultimately became a hero).

* ActorAllusion: WordOfGod stated
Alyx really is, that bond grew. Justified as the ''only reason'' (or a major one, really) why she declared Matt and Carter to be two are Others of each other other, and Catherine--in a way--did save Alyx's life and gave him another chance of living.
* LockedIntoStrangeness: After spending 6,500 years in the oceans as a ghost, Catherine was revived with silver hair. She maintains it even when she de-ages into a 16-year-old.
* MamaBear: Catherine
is because they're both portrayed usually either bubbly or downright crazy. However, if any villain dares to hurt her family, [[BerserkButton she]] ''[[BerserkButton will]]'' [[BerserkButton go berserk on them.]]
* NotSoDifferent: See Protoman.
* ScarsAreForever: WordOfGod states that Catherine will keep her scars from a dragon fight. Which,
by the same actor.way, involved ''half of her face gaining third-degree burns and the entire rest of her body electrified by powerful lightning.''
* ScrewYourself: She took fertility drugs instead of a headache medicine thanks to [[SixthRanger Ryan Mitchell's]] prank. The pills screwed up with her reproductive system, ending up pregnant with Michael.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: "Cath'''e'''r'''i'''ne", "Cathrine", or "Cather'''e'''ne"?
* SuperpowerLottery: ''The'' shining example of the trope out of pretty much everyone. Back then, she had to juggle between her giant Blastoise Gijinka, Eldritch, Lunara Knight, and the Gun-EZ forms, all having different powers and abilities. But then they were all erased for a while, allowing her a chance to become strong and an effective leader (at least when her family and the Lightspeed Rangers are concerned) without her powers. Then in "Alyx's Origins", she wielded her customized V-Lancer and gained the Red Legendary Ranger's powers (the V-Lancer was later added as the Red Lightspeed Ranger's weapon), obtained some magical spells on Halloween, and she obtained a few VideoGame/SuperMarioBros power-ups and the Omni-tool. To make it a long story short: she became broken, then nerfed, then went all the way back up to broken again.
* UnsettlingGenderReveal: The way to ruin a sultry scene she herself created? Reveal that Catherine's a man. Once done to Zapp by Red, the second was done when she herself dropped one on Other!Apala.
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: Justified. See both "OlderThanTheyLook" and "FountainOfYouth".
* WorthyOpponent: She considers Protoman as such.

!!!'''[-Tropes Applying to Both Characters-]'''

* TheAgeless, later upgraded to CompleteImmortality.


Added DiffLines:

* BigEater
** BalloonBelly: Gained one during the Pokemon arc as a result of overeating.
*** Carter actually had to work it off, unlike most other examples of the Trope.
** And then it happened again when she was briefly a personification of Gluttony. However, even after the spell ended, she was happy with her gained weight. This happened a lot more often than not for her, until it was later phased out altogether.
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: Dear God, was it bad. It's a double whammy since Carter and Catherine are Rangers and firefighters. And even though they're balancing their life between saving universes, spending time with their family, and being with Kotohime, it's still there. It led to an albeit-funny--but still embarrassing--moment where Carter left Jennifer to help Martin, not realizing that she got confused. ''Whoops.'' This accident lightly [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructs]] the trope, however, making him realize that he can take longer breaks and have his entire family involved in the Whateververse patrols (and, thus, people-rescuing).
** Finally has eased out, as she realizes that she and her family can only be called when the Whateververse needs them the most. It took the ''Skyrim'' arc to finally make it official, however.
* GuardianOfTheMultiverse: Mild version--they don't call Carter/Catherine "the Multiversal Ranger" for nothing, much to his (her) slight embarrassment.
* TheHeart
* HiddenDepths: Normally, Carter/Catherine can be caring and helpful to all members of the group (and even those who aren't in said group). But if someone's being a jerk and uncaring about the opposite sex? As seen in "UnsettlingGenderReveal", Carter can be a damn good {{troll}} to any sexist asshole.
* MrFixIt: Got a problem involving technology? They'll fix (most of) them.
* NiceGuy (or Girl in Catherine's case)
* OfficialCouple: With an alternate universe version of [[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Kotohime]]. Yes, you read that right--someone who isn't [[FanPreferredCouple Dana Mitchell]] ended up being with Catherine/Carter.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Despite being ''6,529'' years old due to serving under Sedna (and, thus, aging normally), Catherine still was 29 despite looking several decades older.
** FountainOfYouth: After using an aging spell, Catherine now looks 16.
** As for Carter, replace his name instead of Catherine's above in her example, and you'd get the same thing. Only he didn't get a [[FountainOfYouth teenage form]].
* PhysicalGod
* PowerCopying: As the Red Legendary Ranger, Carter/Catherine can transform into any previous Red Ranger, even their own.
** AwesomeButImpractical: WordOfGod, though, states that the powers do have limits. Namely, they can't use a form again until they go through several more forms, said form(s) have to be used for the duration of the battle, and the forms themselves are limited to one weapon. No Zords can be summoned in each form, either, except for Victoria's and the Gun-EZ. As of the finale of "Sins of the Past", however, upon becoming the Ultimate Red Legendary Ranger, the "can't use a form again until they go through several more forms" rule is thrown out the window.
* [[TeamMom Team]] [[TeamDad Parentarch]]: To the point where (s)he's pretty much the closest thing to a parental figure to some characters of the group, namely [[Manga/BlackLagoon Hansel and Gretel]]. The fact that (s)he's a parent (and grandparent) her/himself doesn't hurt.
* TrulySingleParent: To Victoria and, more traditionally, Michael. See ScrewYourself for the latter.

!!'''Matt/[[color:red:Red Cyborg Ranger]]'''
->"Ah, the fear. Doesn't it feel good, Carter?"

[[quoteright:100:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/carter_other_alternate1783.png]]

Formerly of ''Film/MyLittleEye'', Matthew Charles Grayson (or "Matt" for short) is the [[EvilCounterpart Dark Other]] of Carter. He made his first appearance after the third level of Hell as a voice. Throughout his other appearances, he was revealed to be a spirit, remaining in Pikadevil's Hell as punishment for killing his own houseguests. In the fourth level of Hell, Carter thought that he destroyed Matt once and for all after fighting him in order to regain his freedom. Unfortunately for the true Red Ranger, Adrian Tepes wanted to recruit the spirit.

Ever since then, Matt was around, trying to mess with our heroes--especially his heroic counterpart--and sometimes taking sides for his amusement. Finally, he wished to take control of Carter's body, but Adrian ultimately told the Other that he would be have the body of the Red Cyborg Ranger.

During the battle with The Darkness and Morning Star/Satan, Matt snuck out of the Technodrome and decided to protect the then-pregnant Carter/Catherine. He saved his ally by taking the attacks from Satan and telling him to run. Even so, Matt and Carter/Catherine helped out to defeat the fused Darkness and Satan once and for all, and the former(?) Dark Other headed back to the Technodrome...but he decided to stay with the group, the possibility of Adrian Tepes getting ticked off at him be damned.

...until Tepes appeared. Matt tried to side with his leader, but it ended up in failure. Carter/Catherine and even several Others weren't pleased with him. Matt was re-killed when Hilarity Ensues stabbed him in the chest with a sword, and the Other of Yukari took his body for a sinister plan--rebuild his body as a cyborg and insert the Retconinator inside him. Prior to TheReveal, he decided to rejoin the group in order to defeat Pikadevil, and he re-rejoined again so he could see his body destroyed in order to finally rest in peace. In the end, after a fierce battle, Matt possessed the Retconinator and was obliterated by the combined forces of Xenos, Yuri, and Zawman.

According to WordOfGod, after the HeroicSacrifice, Matt became the Lightspeed Spirit Guardian, protecting the spirits of Mariner Bay in the Power Rangers afterlife. Because of that, he's now part of an elite group of deceased Ranger heroes ([[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and Udonna, the Mystic Mother]]), known as the Spirit Guardian Rangers.

Like his canon counterpart, Matt's quite...manipulative at times and bloodthirsty. Unlike his canon counterpart, though, he can be a moron, and he got a bit more CharacterDevelopment (from a NiceGuy killer to [[TheAtoner an atoner]] who ultimately became a hero).

* ActorAllusion: WordOfGod stated that the ''only reason'' (or a major one, really) why she declared Matt and Carter to be Others of each other is because they're both portrayed by the same actor.
* AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence


Added DiffLines:

!!'''Orion / Super Megaforce Silver'''
->"...I have to say, the magic all sounds pretty new to me."

[[quoteright:100:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/spacehipster3121.jpg]]

The SixthRanger from ''[[Series/PowerRangersMegaforce Power Rangers Super Megaforce]]''. Orion first appeared in the {{And Now For Someone Completely Different}} arc, initially going to visit Michael until a bad portal accident happened and ended up joining the group at the train station.

He is always fascinated with everything that he sees, having not travelled to various dimensions in his life before. Part of it had to do with a mission where Vrak kidnapped him and drained his entire life force to reprogram Robo Knight, killing him in the process. Robo Knight managed to revive the Ranger at the cost of his own life, but Orion {{came back wrong}}--the former's memories were also embedded in his mind, and he lost his sense of vengeance towards the Armada after the war.

* CompositeCharacter: In addition to his backstory being similar to Ahim's and Don's in ''Gokaiger'', he's also similar to Alyx Grayson. Both characters come from (initially for Alyx) doomed homeworlds, both end up getting killed by the villains, and when they were revived, both came back wrong with their memories tampered, ending up initially like wide-eyed idealists.
* DoomedHometown: Andresia. During an attack by the Armada, he lost his friends, family, and his entire planet.
* InstantArmor: Orion's secondary power is the Necloth of Gottoms, which, if worn, also happens to resemble both Robo Knight and, to an extent, Vrak's ultimate form. It also unlocks some of both his and Robo Knight's memories due to the similarities.
* NaiveNewcomer: Anything Orion sees is fascinating and new to him, such as finding out Doritos exists, seeing giant-sized representations of planets and talking mecha, and learning about the different magic and tech. It is justified since the only time he ever explored places other than Earth and Andresia are other planets/dimensions in the Rangerverse.
* NotHimself: As a result of his and Robo Knight's memories infused together.

!!Tim Langdon / Go-Buster Ranger Red
->"...bloody hell."

[[quoteright:100:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/the_newbie7623.jpg]]

The leader of the Go-Buster Rangers. When he was 7, he lost his parents when the boss wanted to use Enetron for his own gain, digitizing them in the process. Before the deaths of his parents, his mother gave him a necklace that the scientists later stored his super speed powers into it. He trained to later become the Red Ranger throughout his life, at first angering his older brother, but he eventually learned the reason why.

After his adventures as Go-Buster Ranger Red, Tim wanted to explore the world. So he decided one day to have him and Orion visit Michael, but they ended up at a train station due to the aforementioned portal accident. Ever since that time, he has remained with the group, slowly trying to fit into the craziness.

He's also the first character the roleplayer herself has ever played that has an accent, specifically Australian.

* AdaptationalHeroism: He's ''much'' nicer than both Hiromu Sakurada, his Sentai counterpart criticized for his serious characterization, and reboot!Dante. For the latter, {{Word of God}} states that she's trying to make him nothing like him and attempt to be closer personality-wise to [[Franchise/DevilMayCry classic!Dante]].
* CanonForeigner: Since ''{{Series/Tokumei Sentai Gobusters}}'' was skipped to make ''Dino Charge'', Tim's the result of a what could have been if the former series got adapted.
* {{Expy}}: Not only does he share the same Ranger designation as Hiromu Sakurada/Red Buster, he also has the same type of backstory as [[VideoGame/DMCDevilMayCry reboot!Dante]]. Both lost their parents when they were kids with the big bads doing the dirty work, and both characters received a necklace as a gift from their mothers that later would store a special power. To drive the comparisons much further, Tim's physical appearance is reboot!Dante, much to the former's annoyance when he finally discovers the latter.
* GeniusBruiser: Well-skilled in combat and versatile with his weapons, mecha, and superpowers. Surprisingly good at fixing machines and making mecha, as demonstrated when he was able to give Michael his own Megazord mode.
* HeavySleeper: If he ever works long hours without stopping, as shown after he completed the work on Michael's Megazord mode, he would end up falling asleep for hours on end, even sleeping throughout the day. He even fell asleep in his own Megazord at one point, only waking up when Michael shook his mecha.
* ManlyGay: Very skilled with his fighting prowess, as befitting of a Red Ranger. He's also dating Orion.
* NamedAfterSomebodyFamous: For a relative term of "famous", he shares the same first name as reboot!Dante's voice actor, Tim Phillipps, and last name as the most well-known voice actor for classic!Dante, Reuben Langdon.
* RedOnesGoFaster
* SuperSpeed
* WeaksauceWeakness: The necklace holds his super speed powers, so if it gets stolen or damaged during its activation, he freezes up.

!!Koto Ozawa/Troy Burrows / Miko Rayer

[[quoteright:100:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/koto5758.jpg]]

Koto seems like your average magical girl warrior: hailing from the world of Cosprayers different from the one in [[{{Anime/CosPrayers}} the actual show]], she's a very sweet girl who cares deeply about her teammates, fights for what she thinks is right, and is unafraid of any dangers. With the power of cosplay, she can wield various weapons and powers based on what she's wearing.

She also happens to be Troy Burrows, former Megaforce Red.

A few years after the events of ''(Super) Megaforce'', Troy was caught in a portal and landed in the aforementioned world, also turned into a girl in the process. After surviving through the madness, she wanders the multiverse, finding a way to turn back to her old self and regain her lost Ranger powers. Though to compensate, she has the ability to cosplay as any past Red Ranger at will in a way that mirrors her Super Megaforce Red form.

* CuteBruiser: Even if she looks adorable, that does not stop her from kicking enemy ass, especially since she was a former Power Ranger.
* DiscardAndDraw: From having the (Super) Megaforce powers to having the powers of the Cosprayers, as a result of going to the latter world.
* GenderBender
* NotAsYouKnowThem: The original Koto is very much a flat character, with a defining personality of being hotheaded and determined. This one, while keeping the determination, has more characterizations than both her and Troy.
* TransformationTrinket: The Cosmo Bracelet.
* WeaponOfChoice: As in [[Series/PowerRangersMegaforce the original]], the Dragon Sword.

The twin "sister" of Michael Grayson and "daughter" of Carter/Catherine Grayson. Victoria was the male twin of Michael when the latter fell into [[RanmaOneHalf the Spring of Drowned Twins]], and both had to be locked with the Pot and Ladle of Preservation. To make it so that she was different from her twin, Victoria fell into the Spring of Drowned Girl and was mode-locked in that form, too. Until her separation, Victoria had all of Michael's memories, and she has a very close bond with her "brother".

This is the Zelda of ''SpiritTracks''; thus, she comes from a different time period than Link. Due to the dimensional instability caused by the different fictional worlds colliding, her time's Link never showed up. Instead, she was forced to call upon the help of Tails to get her body back from Cole. Afterward, she joined the party as a mainstay.
