* 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)-]

* RedEyesTakeWarning
* TheRival: To Diabolico

* [[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.
