!!Geki/Tyranno Ranger
[[quoteright:243:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tyrannoranger_4584.jpg]]

->'''Portrayed by:''' Yuuta Mochizuki

The Prince of Yamato Tribe, 'Warrior of Justice'. He was raised believing that the King of the Yamato Tribe was his father, until it turns out he was ''adopted'' from the King's sworn enemy, the Black Knight. His natural brother Burai antagonizes him for being raised by their real father's old enemy, but Geki successfully convinced him to bury the hatchet of hate. He wields the Ryugekiken and after Burai's death, he dual wields it with Burai's Zyusouken.
[[hardline]]
* CainAndAbel: The Abel to Burai's Cain, at first.
* ChangelingFantasy: Reversed.
* GratuitousEnglish: His royal title is ''Purinsu'', not ''Ōji''.
* LawOfChromaticSuperiority: His Guardian Beast Tyrannosaurus is the only mecha that can fight giant-sized Dora Monsters by itself and finish them off occasionally (since it's the only bipedal type out of the main five).
* TheLeader: He serves as the team's leader.
* ManlyTears: He cries these while [[spoiler:offering his life to Burai. It causes Burai to make his HeelFaceTurn.]]
%%* ObliviousAdoption

!!Goushi/Mammoth Ranger
[[quoteright:242:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mammothranger_9083.jpg]]

->'''Portrayed by:''' Seiju Umon (credited as Aohisa Takayasu)

A Knight of the Sharma Tribe and Warrior of Wisdom. Was once Geki's companion before being sealed. Raised with his sister Otome, who eventually [[StuffedInTheFridge died fighting Bandora]], inspiring him further.
[[hardline]]
* BadassBaritone: Provided by Seiju Umon.
* GeniusBruiser: Is a pretty powerful powerhouse and is very into lore and reading.
%%* TheLancer
* {{Revenge}}: He wants to avenge Otome's death.
* TheSmartGuy: Just look at his title, god damn it.
* SwissArmyWeapon: Moth Breaker
** AnAxeToGrind: Standard mode
** HandCannon: Laser Rifle Mode

!!Dan/Tricera Ranger
[[quoteright:241:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/triceraranger_5142.jpg]]

->'''Portrayed by:''' Hideki Fujiwara

A Knight from the Etoffe Tribe and the Warrior of Courage. A happy-go-lucky jokester guy who's HotBlooded and likes to slack off, though once he set his sight on something noble, he'd never stop pursuing it.
[[hardline]]
* BifurcatedWeapon: Tricelance
** [[DoubleWeapon Double]] [[ProngsOfPoseidon Prong]]: Standard mode.
** DualWielding: Can split into two spears.
* TheBigGuy: Moreso on his HotBlooded tendencies and bravado, though.
* CasanovaWannabe: Likes chasing girls, without much success
* {{Expy}}: On [[Series/ChoujinSentaiJetman the previous show]], his actor Hideki Fujiwara played a blue birdman whose name is... Dan
%%* HotBlooded
%%* IdiotHero

!!Boi/Tiger Ranger
[[quoteright:242:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tigerranger_7134.jpg]]

->'''Portrayed by:''' Takumi Hashimoto

A Knight of the Dime Tribe and Warrior of Hope. The youngest of the team, though mentally more mature than Dan. Excels in high speed attacks. Due to his youth, he's popular with kids.
[[hardline]]
* BigEater: Okay, that one incident with Gnome does have motivation, but he tops the rest of the Zyurangers in terms of appetite.
* DoesNotLikeSpam: Carrots are one of the few things he ''won't'' eat.
* DualWielding KnifeNut: Saber Daggers
%%* FragileSpeedster
%%* FriendToAllChildren
%%* KidAppealCharacter
* LethalChef: Downplayed. Despite being the TeamChef, the Zyurangers claimed that Boi's foods weren't as good. But at least, it didn't send his teammates to the toilets or knocked them unconscious.
* MeaningfulName: His name sounds similar to Bowie, which is a type of knife.
* ShapedLikeItself: He's a boy... named Boi.
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: He acts quite mature.

!!Mei/Ptera Ranger
[[quoteright:242:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pteraranger_1891.jpg]]

->'''Portrayed by:''' Reiko Chiba

The Princess of the Lithia Tribe and 'Warrior of Love'. Kind, loving, but has an iron-will. Formed some sort of rivalry with Lamie later on.
[[hardline]]
* ActionGirl: Especially when she gets a focus episode, expect plenty of badassery from her.
* BadassAdorable: She's a cute princess, and yet she proves to be cunning/strong enough to single-handedly defeat Dora Monsters herself at times.
* BadassPrincess: She's the princess of the Lithia Tribe and can kick major ass with her bow.
%%* TheChick
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: Why are the rest Knights, while she's just Princess? Granted, Geki is also a ''prince'', but at least he's supposed to be the leader.
* HairDecorations: Changes her hairstyle nearly every time. Usually with new hair decorations.
* GenerationXerox: Her ancestor once performed a HeroicSacrifice to destroy a monster. When that monster came back, Mei repeats the event, only without the HeroicSacrifice.
* GirlishPigtails: She occasionally has her hair tied in twin tails.
* GratuitousEnglish: Like Geki. It's ''Purinsesu'', not ''Hime''.
* LightFeminineAndDarkFeminine: She's not a complete tomboy and most of the time doing a LOT of feminine things (like liking flowers).
* LoveYouAndEverybody: Why she could get away with being 'Warrior of Love' and not being romantically involved with anyone. She deals with more universal love.
* MasterOfDisguise: Once got into a battle with Lamie ''while changing clothes in the middle of battle''.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple
* ShesGotLegs: About halfway through the series, Mei's skirt in her civilian outfit is exchanged for noticeably shorter shorts. This appears to have been done not for Fanservice, but for practical reasons, as Mei takes a much more active role in the fight sequences after this point.
* ShipTease: With Geki by fans.
* TheStraightAndArrowPath: Ptera Arrow, because the occasional handgun and its upgrade (Thunder Slinger) isn't enough apparently.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Surprisingly, she is ''the tomboy'' in her rivalry with Lamie, mostly because of the trope above and several of her so many hairstyles tend to make her look short-haired (she just ties her hair short)
* WeaksauceWeakness: Not in her, but she and her tribe often acts like this to various Dora Monsters, in case that not even Daizyuzin and Dragon Caesar can destroy it.
* WholesomeCrossdresser: Among her disguises, the Masked Musketeer would be worn by a man.

!!Burai/Dragon Ranger
[[quoteright:240:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dragonranger_131.jpg]]

->'''Portrayed by:''' Shiro Izumi

The Warrior of Power from the Yamato Tribe. The elder son of the Black Knight and Geki's estranged brother, who came to resent Geki after he was adopted and raised by their father's enemy, the King of the Yamato Tribe. When he came back, he started antagonizing his brother and the Zyurangers, but he eventually lets go of his vengeance and aids him in battle even though he has a limited life. Eventually, Bandora discovered his secret and destroyed his hideout, thus slowly killing him, but not after he passed on most of his strength to Geki.
[[hardline]]
* AloofBigBrother: A much more cynical example, but he got better.
** Possibly a {{Deconstruction}} - when he's not mysteriously appearing to save his brother, he's sitting in isolation hoping he doesn't die.
* BackForTheFinale: His spirit appears in the final episode to guide the Zyurangers to where Bandora is holding their Guardian Beasts hostage.
* CainAndAbel: The Cain to Geki's Abel, at first.
* CharacterDeath: He dies after his hideout is destroyed and his candle is melted away.
* TheComicallySerious: Compared to the Bandora Gang when he was evil, especially during their musical numbers.
-->"I feel like watching a comedy."
* CoolBigBro: To a degree after his HeelFaceTurn.
* DeadAllAlong: [[spoiler:He died during a cave-in after being sealed. He's only around because Daizyuzin temporarily resurrected him.]]
* DeathsHourglass: Lives on it.
* EvilPrince: His first act after waking up from millions of years of suspended animation is to proclaim himself as the Prince of the Yamato Tribe before attacking the Zyurangers.
* HeelFaceTurn: He starts off as a villain out of a desire for revenge against Geki. The two of them bury the hatchet at the end of Burai's intro arc, thus Burai's HeelFaceTurn.
* KamehameHadoken: The energy projectile he throws during his first battle with the Zyurangers... Which he never uses again.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:Since Daizyuzin resurrected him temporarily, Burai dies permanently towards the end of the series after his life-force is used up. Not even the Water of Life is able to save him]].
* KnightOfCerebus: His introduction provides an arc that's much more serious than the earlier episodes, and his approaching death provided for some more serious episodes leading up to it.
* LivingOnBorrowedTime: [[spoiler:He only has forty hours to live; he can only extend his time with his time-stopping magic chamber.]]
* LongLostRelative: [[spoiler:He's Geki's brother]].
* MeaningfulName: "Burai" means "villain". He starts off as one.
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: Clotho mentions that even though the Zyurangers couldn't save Burai's life, by fulfilling his wish to save the life of a dying boy they could save his soul- possibly, this sacrifice was what allowed him to be forgiven for the evil he'd done in the past.
* SixthRanger: The TropeNamer. While not the first ranger to join his team mid-series (being preceded by [[Series/JAKQDengekitai Big One]], as well as [[Series/ChoujuuSentaiLiveman Black Bison and Green Sai]]), he was the first to be both, an actual sixth ranger and a recurring character ([[Series/HikariSentaiMaskman X-1 Mask]] only lasted one episode).
* SpotlightStealingSquad: Which is the reason why the writers limited his powers and later killed him off since he was overshadowing the other Zyurangers.
** JustifiedTrope: Burai's counterpart [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Tommy]] was also a Spotlight Stealing Squad but Tommy was only limited as a result of Burai not being featured often in Zyuranger footage, which ended when Tommy started using [[Series/GoseiSentaiDairanger other]] powers and the producers started filming more original footage. As a result, Tommy is a controversial character among fans, more so than Burai.
* TheStarscream: Bandora knows he plans to take her power and rule the world himself after he defeats the Zyurangers.
* TheUsurper: Played around with his debut. His first act upon awakening was to proclaim himself as the Prince of the Yamato Tribe, with BossSubtitles to match.
* WeaponOfChoice
** MixAndMatchWeapon: [[MagicalFlutist Zyusou]][[KnifeNut ken]] [[note]]''Beast Instrument Dagger''[[/note]]
** PoweredArmor: Dragon Armor

!!Daizyuzin
->'''Voiced by:''' Eiji Maruyama

%%* AllYourPowersCombined
* BadassBaritone: His booming, stern voice provided by Eiji Maruyama is not only fitting for his role as a god, but also makes him sound like an old, grizzled warrior.
* CombiningMecha: Combined from the team's five Guardian Beast mechs.
* DisneyDeath: [[spoiler:He seems to be destroyed, but it turns out it was just revitalizing itself.]]
* MeaningfulName: Daizyuzin means "Great Beast God"
* JerkassHasAPoint: Despite being brothers, as Daizyuzin pointed out, Geki's hesitance to kill Burai put both his teammates and innocent civilians in danger.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He may be a jerk on multiple occasions; holding imperfect mortals to his own godly standards and can be [[GoodIsNotNice especially harsh]] in dealing out discipline for mistakes and insubordination. However, he ''is'' one of the good guys and fights for the greater good. Nor is he afraid to admit when he was wrong.
** Plus in the end, he decided to merely seal Bandora and her followers away rather than kill them.
* MechaExpansionPack: He can "wear" Dragon Caesar as a helmet and cape to become Zyutei (Beast Emperor) Daizyuzin and then "ride" King Brachion as a steed to become Kyukyoku (Ultimate) Daizyuzin.
* MechanicalLifeforms: More of a [[PhysicalGod mechanical god]] actually.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: "Daizyuzin" and "Daizyujin" have both been used in official products.
* TransformingMecha: He can transform into (or rather he transforms from) the Beast Tank Dino Tanker.

!!Dragon Caesar
* MechaExpansionPack: He can combined with the Triceratops, Saber Tiger and Zyu Mammoth to form Gouryuzin (Mighty Dragon God).
* MechanicalLifeforms: He becomes depressed in the episode after [[spoiler:Burai dies.]]

!!Zyukishin King Brachion
* MechaExpansionPack: Functions as a steed for Daizyuzin or any of his other forms.
* [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Spell My Finisher With an S]]: Grand Banisher, Grand Vanisher or Grand Punisher?
* TransformingMecha: He can turn into a tank by becoming the Super Beast Tank King Tanker.

!!Barza the Wizard
->'''Portrayed by:''' Jun Tatara

* BadassGrandpa: Barza is a wise sage and can throw grenades at a mountain.
* BigGood: He is the Zyurangers' mentor and is one of the most powerful wizards in the series.
* TheFogOfAges: Though he is a powerful wizard, he forgot all of his spells over the millions of years he spent watching over the Zyuranger (He finally remembered one in the finale).
* ManInWhite: He wears white robes.
* MentorArchetype: In the same vein as [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Zordon]].
* Really700YearsOld: He lived in the same timeframe as the rangers for over 170 million years.

[[folder:Bandora Gang]]
!!Bandora

->'''Portrayed by:''' Creator/MachikoSoga

* AffablyEvil: Is actually rather nice compared to other {{Big Bad}}s of Sentai. She never ever plays a YouHaveFailedMe completely straight. The worst thing she would do against her minions is hit them with her wand when they fail.
* AvengingTheVillain: Her motive for selling her soul was to avenge her son [[spoiler:who had crushed some dinosaur eggs and got chased off a cliff by some tyrannosaurs]].
* BenevolentBoss: At the end of the day, she really does care for her commanders.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: She's a LargeHam, she sings and even ''raps''. She'll also show you why she calls herself the Strongest Witch.
* BigBad: The main antagonist of the series, [[spoiler:until the appearance of Great Satan.]]
* ChildHater: Almost all of her evil plans are aimed to hurt or otherwise inconvenience children. This actually stems from the sadness she felt because of the loss of her own son Kai. If she can't have children, no one can.
* TheDarkSideWillMakeYouForget: She became an evil witch to avenge her son Kai, but over time completely forgot about him, untill Dai Satan brings him back to life.
* DealWithTheDevil: Literally when she allied with Great Satan.
%%* EvilOverlord
%%* EvilSorceress
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Not only does she love and care for her son Kai, but she also serves as a sort of mother figure for her henchmen; she will praise them for a job well done or a plan they come up with that sounds good, she will comfort them when they feel down, and she scolds them when they act out of line, not unlike how a mother would scold a misbehaving child. One such example is when she finds out about Grifforzer's StayInTheKitchen speech aimed at Lamia when he regains his voice.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: When she gave Grifforzer the ability to talk, Lamie claims his first words to her were "[[StayInTheKitchen The battlefield is no place for a woman. Go home and do some laundry or something.]]" Not only was Lamie visibly pissed about this but even Bandora was not pleased about it.
* LargeHam: Quite possibly the biggest in SuperSentai history, and part of what makes her such an ''entertaining'' character. Say 'Large Ham' to a Sentai fan, and they'll reply "Bandora?".
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: She forgot her whole reason why she became evil in the first place...
* MakeMyMonsterGrow: "Evil spirits resting beneath the Earth, grant us now - HAAA! - your powerrrrrrr!". It says something about Bandora that she is the rare BigBad who is ''directly responsible'' for growing the MOTW.
* MamaBear: A rather unfortunate example this time. Because her child was killed by dinosaurs, she made a pact with this series' equivalent of Satan and used her newly gained powers to wage war against the dinosaurs and ancient mankind.
* MeaningfulName: Her name is similar to Pandora, from the myth of Pandora's box. Since her escape from a box means trouble for humanity, it's a very fitting name. It also sounds similar to [[Series/{{Bewitched}} Endora]], another witch that likes to cause trouble.
* PetTheDog: She loves her monsters and [[spoiler:Grifforzer and Lamie's son]].
* TearsOfBlood: She suffers from this while harnessing the darkest of magic to summon Great Satan.
* WeakSauceWeakness: She loses her powers if she ever cries. [[spoiler: Then her son dies in her arms...]]
* [[YouKilledMyFather You Killed My Child]]: Her StartOfDarkness.

!!Grifforzer

->'''Voiced by:''' Yoshimasa Senda, Kan Tokumaru

* BattleCouple: With Lamie.
%%* BlingOfWar
%%* TheBrute
* TheDragon: Becomes CoDragons after Lamie shows up.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Once he regains his ability to talk, his comrades note how impressive his voice is.
* SickeninglySweethearts: With Lamie.
* SilentAntagonist: Before Lamie shows up. He apparently speaks so little that even Bandora is shocked by it.
* StayInTheKitchen: According to Lamie, his [[SuddenlyVoiced first words]] to her were "The battlefield is no place for a woman. Go home and do some laundry or something." HilarityEnsues.
* SuddenlyVoiced: He originally could only speak in grunts, growls and roars. When Lamie joins the cast, Bandora gives Griffozer a voice as part of her payment to Lamie.
* UglyGuyHotWife: With Lamie.

!!Lamie

->'''Portrayed by:''' Ami Kawai

* BattleCouple: With Grifforzer.
%%* BlingOfWar
%%* DarkActionGirl
* CoDragons: With Grifforzer, Lamie serves as Bandora's second-in-command.
* HiddenDepths: If the last episode is anything to go by, she's going to be a wonderful mother.
* LightFeminineAndDarkFeminine: The dark to Mei's light, since she's really sensual with Grifforzer.
%%* MsFanservice
* PregnantBadass[=/=]HumanMomNonhumanDad: Just shortly after she gets sealed with Bandora, she gives birth to one child. Which could mean she's been fighting the Zyurangers ''while pregnant''.
%%* SpoiledBrat
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Even though she's the DarkActionGirl, she ends up being the 'girly girl' when compared to Mei.

!!Pleprechaun

->'''Voiced by:'''

* AffablyEvil: Does not show any true malicious qualities and comes over more as an absent minded artist than anything else.
* EvilGenius: He is the smartest of Bandora's gang, making him this trope.
* MadArtist: Spends almost all of his time creating clay statues, which are placed inside a machine to turn them into a MonsterOfTheWeek.
* MookMaker: Has a mold which is able to mass produce many clay statues of the series Mooks.
* NonActionGuy: He is never seen directly fighting the Zyurangers.
* VerbalTic: "Ple!"

!!Totpat & Bookback
->'''Voiced by:''' Kaoru Shinoda (Totpat), Takashi Watabe (Bookback)

* GratuitousGerman: The "Tot" in Totpat's name comes from the German word for death.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Bukubuku? Bookback? Buku Buck? The most likely one being Bukubach, as the character is based off a lumpy-headed minor demon from the ''DictionnaireInfernal'' known as Ukobach.
%%* ThoseTwoBadGuys

!!Great Satan
* BiggerBad: He gave Bandora her powers.
* EvilLaugh: All of his words are this.
* FlyingFace: Appears as a flying head with spines as hair.
* GenericDoomsdayVillain: Even by Super Sentai standards, he never talks and just laughs evilly.
* KnightOfCerebus: Episodes where this guy appears are generally episodes with much higher stakes.
* SatanicArchetype: His name can be translated as Great Satan, so it is obviously he is meant to be this trope.
* TheSpeechless: Satan only speaks in laughs and grunts.
* UltimateEvil: In the ''Zyuranger'' universe.
