'''The Dairangers'''
!!!'''[[color:red:Ryō/Ryu Ranger]]''' | [-Actor: Keiichi Wada-]
* {{Badass}}: The most powerful warrior in the team, he was also [[spoiler: the one who killed [[BigBad Shadam]]]]. Not to mention having probably the most out of suit fight than the others, owing mostly to Keiichi Wada having trained at martial arts and his genuine martial arts talent.
** Fans always debate if he is the most powerful Red Ranger in history. So, yeah.
* [[DualWielding Dual]] [[CoolSword Swords]]: Sekiryu Soryūken [[note]]''Twin Dragon Swords''[[/note]]
* InstantExpert: After his first henshin, Ryō is suddenly this when it comes to chi power and fighting.
* LawOfChromaticSuperiority: He's the son of the legendary Choryu, and thus a descendant of the Dai tribe. His [=KiDenJuu=], [=RyuSeiOh=], can also face off and beat enlarged Gorma Monsters; in fact, he's the first SuperSentai warrior to have his own TransformingMecha.

* Training From Hell

!!!'''[[color:green:Daigo/Shishi Ranger]]''' | [-Actor: Tatsuya Nōmi-]
* FingerlessGloves: Seems to wear them whenever he's not working.
* GoodThingYouCanHeal: In contrast with his hot-bloodedness, Daigo's the most likely of the heroes to meditate his way to awesome on his own.
* GroinAttack: Uses one rather blatantly early on.
* {{Hotblooded}}: In a loose cannon sort of way - this is a guy who gets sucked up by a Gohma and then ''punches his way out''. When he gets angry, expect awesomeness to follow.
* [[spoiler:LargeHam: Old!Daigo seems to run on this.]]
* TheLancer
* MasterOfIllusion: Has created illusionary doors, tanks, cops, Yamanote-sen [[note]]a notable train loop in Tokyo[[/note]] trains, ''Kujaku on a tricycle''... And they all ''hurt''.

!!!'''[[color:gold:Kazu/Kirin Ranger]]''' | [-Actor: Keisuke Tsuchiya-]
* CampStraight: A beautician who works in salon. Totally not gay. [[note]]Metrosexuality didn't yet exist as a concept in the early nineties.[[/note]]
* DrunkenBoxing: And has the most difficult pose as a result. [[note]]It requires a drunken 'stretch' that becomes a spin into a low crouch.[[/note]]
* EpicFlail: Kirin Ku-setsu Ben [[note]]''Qilin 9-Part Whip''[[/note]]
* TheHeart
* MakingUseOfTheTwin: In #25, when the Copy Empress made evil duplicates of the Dairangers, Kazu's clone was played by Keisuke Tsuchiya's twin brother, Daisuke.

* SignatureMove: ''Ichimonji Tatsumaki'' [[note]]Straight Line Tornado[[/note]]
* [[TheSmartGuy The Smart Girl]]
* TheSmurfettePrinciple
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Lin or Rin? You would think it would be "Lin", seeing how she's Chinese, but in the episode where she became a pop-star, it was spelled "Rin".

Once Kujaku's childhood friend that got a scar in exchange for saved her life from many years ago. Think that Kujaku has betrayed her she joined Gorma and trapped Kujaku in a Mirror Make-up Artist.[[spoiler:She's revealed to have died long ago in a battle after she joined Gorma and became an angel in the heaven.]]

* [[spoiler:AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence]]
* [[spoiler:DeadAllAlong]]
* DarkChick
* [[spoiler:{{Forgiveness}}]] - [[spoiler:While it's true that the real Gara died many years ago and the current one is a copy, the fact that why she didn't try to communicate with Kujaku still make this trope play.]]
* WomanInBlack:[[spoiler:WomanInWhite for the true Gara.]]
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Attempts to kill her own Gorma kaijin that trapped Kujaku and Daigo to prevent them from escaping.

!Emperor Gorma XV

!General Tenpou
* Jerkass: Humiliates Shadam to the point that Shadam becomes a *Butt Monkey* to the Gorma Palace attendants.

General Shadam's [[spoiler:first]] son and one of the Gorma Generals. He was killed by a falling rock [[spoiler:and resurrected by the emperor.]] He's later [[spoiler: revealed to be Kō's older twin brother.]]
* EnfanteTerrible: And ''how''. Most of this is likely attributed to his father Shadam's mistreatment of him.
* MissingMom: Subverted. [[spoiler:She was captured and held by Gorma the entire time. He used her as hostage in fact]]
* ManipulativeBastard: [[spoiler: In one episode we see Ko befriend a new girl attending his school who has an abusive mother. She pinches her, makes her buy dinner on her own, and shows disregard for her kidnapping when Ko caught her playing tennis leisurely - she outright makes a commentary that "mothers like her exist". Sounds over-the-top and forced right? That's correct because both mother and Ko's friend were the Ring Priestess and Akomaru in disguise. It was all a plot to get Ko to despise his mother and become a Gorma from his hatred.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: His final plan was to blackmail Ko to join the Gorma with his mother's life. When he did not comply he blew her away so Ko could never find her again and slightly rubs it in his face before [[spoiler: he dies the first time]]
* Royal Brat: Got to have a high position in Gorma due to General Tenpou raising him [[spoiler: after Shadam abandoned him]].
