'''Our Heroes'''

!![[color:red:Carter Grayson / Red Lightspeed Ranger]] | [-(Actor: Sean Cw Johnson)-]
--> ''You'd think they'd have learned they can't beat the Power Rangers.''

* {{Badass}}: He attempted to [[CrazyAwesome run over a monster with a Humvee, blasted another monster with two [=BFGs=] at point blank range, attacked a giant Diabolico with just his pistol, and]] ''[[CrazyAwesome punched]]'' [[CrazyAwesome Bansheera.]] In short, he just got the work done and was very effective for the most part.
* CombatPragmatist: The aforementioned using a Humvee on a demon, and actually bringing a gun to shoot down mooks in "Forever Red" (thus averting WhyDontYaJustShootHim).
** Thus, it can be argued that in comparison to most of the Red Rangers, he's the one that took the most initiative and he was a quick-thinker (by no means does that mean that the other Red Rangers were dumb -- but, most of them tend to be very indecisive, become very neurotic when they despair, and/or be very impulsive and wreckless). If anything, he actually kept a fine balance between being headstrong and using his brain.
* DeadpanSnarker
* {{Determinator}}: "My Megazord's down, but I'm not!"
* [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu Did You Just Punch Out Queen Bansheera?]]: Literally, as seen above under {{Badass}}.
* DullSurprise: One of the main criticisms of the character.
* GroundhogDayLoop: Went back in time while riding the M.A.V. (Mobile Armored Vehicle) in "Yesterday Again".
* TheHero (AllAmericanFace)
* HeroicFireRescue: Introduced with one.
* LawOfChromaticSuperiority: He gets a special sidecar to his bike, a special vehicle (see above). Somewhat subverted when Joel and Chad get their {{Super Mode}}s ahead of him, but played straight when he gets a second CoolBike (which doubles as a Battlizer) near the end of the season.
* ShipTease: With Dana.

!![[color:blue:Chad Lee / Blue Lightspeed Ranger]] | [-(Actor: Michael Chaturantabut)-]
-->''I don't have to prove myself to anyone. I know who I am.''

* {{Badass}}
* TheBigGuy
* TheCastShowOff: His actor, Mike Chat, is a very skilled martial artist and producers really were sure to showcase his abilities, specially in episodes focused on him.
* TheEveryman
* IKnowKarate: Seeing how skilled Mike Chat is, it's not a surprise to see his character with this
* KillItWithIce: His Mega Battle Gear
* LezBro: For Kelsey
* OddFriendship: With Kelsey.
* OurMermaidsAreDifferent / InterspeciesRomance: Chad's love interest Marina.
* TheQuietOne: Shares this trope with Ryan.
* SuperMode: He gets a Mega Battle Armor along with Joel in "The Mighty Mega-Battles"; his has an [[FreezeRay ice gun]].
* TwoFirstNames

!![[color:green:Joel Rawlings / Green Lightspeed Ranger]] | [-(Actor: Keith Robinson)-]
--> '''Carter:''' Why do you always have to be the center of attention?
--> '''Joel:''' Well, I don't *have* to be, it's just that I usually am.

* AcePilot
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: With Ms Fairweather, for most of the series.
** OfficialCouple: With Ms. Fairweather.
* BaldOfAwesome
* [[BaldBlackLeaderGuy Bald Black Lancer Guy]]
* CasanovaWannabe
* TheLancer
* NiceHat: Tied directly to his CharacterDevelopment, when he's wearing his cowboy hat he's kind of a douche, when he isn't he's... not.
* PluckyComicRelief
* SuperMode: He gets a Mega Battle Armor along with Chad in "The Mighty Mega-Battles"; his has a [[strike: pizza cutter]] circular saw.

!![[color:gold:Kelsey Winslow / Yellow Lightspeed Ranger]] | [-(Actress: Sasha Williams)-]
--> ''"Crazy" is my middle name.''

* AmbiguouslyGay: She has some traditional masculine tributes, and is about as Ambiguously Gay as you can get on ''Power Rangers''.
* TheChick
* CuteBruiser
* KidAppealCharacter: Youngest of the group, hot-headed, colored in Yellow....
* MetaphorIsMyMiddleName
* OddFriendship: With Chad.
* PluckyGirl
* ShesAManInJapan: Her original version, [=GoYellow=] was Daimon Tatsumi, a male policeman.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Tomboy to Dana's Girly Girl.

!![[color:fuchsia:Dana Mitchell / Pink Lightspeed Ranger]] | [-(Actress: Alison [=MacInnis=])-]
* [[strike:Forced]] AcquiredSituationalNarcissism: When she was the Glitz Girl in "In the Limelight".
* TheDitz: Halfway through the season.
* ImprobableAge
* TheMedic (CombatMedic)
* OutOfCharacterMoment: It was well established that Dana was an intellectual and was level-headed. However, she is given her out-of-character-moment in the episode, "In the Limelight", where she suddenly becomes narcissistic... as if she made a complete 180. It was highly unusual because past episodes have never implied that she had such tendencies. Of course, it would be very understandable how she might become anxious and desperate about getting into med school considering how she is an A-student and cares a lot about her studies, and the fact that she is balancing her Ranger duties on top of that. But again, her insecurities (assuming that she did have some) and the pressures she could be feeling were not given much focus; instead, we get what looks like a rushed, let's-just-throw-this-in job on the writers' part. Here, she is just simply made to look like someone who is very quickly taken over by vanity.
* RedOniBlueOni: The Blue Oni to Kelsey's Red.
* ShipTease: With Carter.
* [[TheSmartGuy The Smart Girl]]
* TeamMom
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Girly Girl to Kelsey's Tomboy.

!![[color:gray:Ryan Mitchell / Titanium Ranger]] | [-(Actor: Rhett Fisher)-]
* AnAxeToGrind
* CanonForeigner: Due to [[Series/RescueSentaiGoGoFive GoGoV]] only having five rangers the production team added a new helmet and shoulder pads to a recolored [[Series/KousokuSentaiTurboranger Turboranger]] suit to make a SixthRanger.
* FuelMeterOfPower
* LongLostRelative
* MarkOfTheBeast: Was given a deadly snake tattoo by Diabolico during his HeelFaceTurn.
* TheQuietOne: Shares this trope with Chad.
* TheSixthRanger

'''Their Allies'''

!!Captain William Mitchell | [-(Actor: Ron Roggé)-]
* BadassMoustache
* BaldOfAwesome
* BigGood
* RetiredBadass: he used to be a firefighter, and once saved a young Carter from a burning building. In "A Face from the Past" he demonstrates that, despite being retired, he still got the skills for the job.
* SkewedPriorities: He made a couple of errors in judgement early on, but [[CharacterDevelopment he made up for it]].
* TheCaptain
* TeamDad: Literally and figuratively. He's Dana and Ryan's father, and was a major inspirational and guidance figure for Carter.

!!Dr. Angela Fairweather | [-(Actor: Monica Louwerens)-]
* AloofDarkHairedGirl
* HotScientist
* {{Meganekko}}
* OfficialCouple: With Joel.
* SexySecretary: Of Captain Mitchell.

'''Their Enemies'''

!!Diabolico | [-(Voice actor: Creator/NeilKaplan)-]

* DeadpanSnarker: He has his moments.
* TheDragon: To Queen Bansheera
** DragonInChief: He drives the plot for the first half of the season, due to Bansheera's imprisonment.
* FakeBoss
* MagicStaff: Wields a big one. He drops it when he dies.
* NobleDemon
* RedemptionEqualsDeath
* SealedEvilInACan
* ThereCanOnlyBeOne: The Star Power can only belong to one demon, and Queen Banshera can take it from him. Fear of losing this is what motivates his last attacks on the Rangers.
* WouldHurtAChild: Almost killed Impus to protect his job. The only reason he didn't was because Jinxer happened on him.

!!Loki | [-(Voice actor: David Lodge)-]
* TheBrute
* DumbMuscle
* ReligiousAndMythologicalThemeNaming: Though a terrible example, as Loki was a ''clever'' mythological figure.

!!Vypra | [-(Actress: Jennifer Yen)-]
* CleavageWindow
* CoolCar: Her Vyprari in "Wheels of Destruction".
* DarkActionGirl
* DarkChick
* DullSurprise
* MeaningfulName: Viper and Wyvern.
* PlayingWithFire: A contrast to Denus's water demon status (since in Lightspeed Rescue, the demons have a weakness towards water)

!!Jinxer | [-(Voice actor: Creator/KimStrauss)-]
* AscendedExtra: After all of Banshera's main generals were defeated/killed, Jinxer were briefly promoted to become this thanks to the fact that he still have use [[spoiler:before he was destroyed along with the Omegazord.]]
* EvilGenius
* MakeMyMonsterGrow

!!Impus/Olympius | [-(Voice actors: Brianne Siddall and Michael Forest)-]
* TheDragon
** DragonInChief: In the second half of the season.
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: More notable than his japanese counterpart that he seem to love his mother genuinely.
* PlotRelevantAgeUp: From Impus to Olympus, when Diabolico bites it.
* RedEyesTakeWarning
* TheRival: To Diabolico
* ScaledUp: Becomes a dragon in his final episode.
* UndyingLoyalty: To his mother.
* WeaksauceWeakness: Like all of his kin, to water. It takes away most of his powers, forcing him to relay on the usual Rangers villain tactics.

!!Queen Bansheera | [-(Voice actress: Diane Salinger)-]
* AscendedExtra: Her [[Series/KyuuKyuuSentaiGoGoV counterpart, Gradienne,]] was (at least physically) destroyed by the GoGoV before the series finale. Instead of her, a revived Salamandes and Zylpheeza served as the final opponents (though they were controlled by Gradienne's spirit during that fight). In Lightspeed Rescue, Bansheera stays around till the very end and is actually the final villain the rangers have to fight. She plans to use an eclipse to open the gateway to the Shadow World [[spoiler:before being sent their too by Carter(and Diabolico).]]
* BadBoss: One of the worst bosses in Power Rangers history.
* BigBad
* FateWorseThanDeath: [[spoiler: In the finale, Diabolico's spirit dropped Bansheera into the Demon Chest, where she was last seen getting beaten by legions of Demons for all eternity.]]
* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen
* OneWingedAngel: She becomes this after absorbing Vypra near the end of the series.
* [[OrcusOnHisThrone Orcus On Her Throne]]: Subverted. She doesn't do anything directly against the Rangers until the very end of the season, but it's because she can't. The Rangers interrupted the demons' ritual to bring her back, leaving her in a deformed, far less powerful body. It is not until she absorbs Vypra in "Wrath of the Queen" that she regains her full body and powers, and it is then she begins to take a far more active role in achieving her goals.
* [[TheManBehindTheMan The (Wo)man Behind The Man]] for Diabolico.
