[[folder:Our Heroes]]

!![[color:red:Scott Truman / Ranger Operator Series Red]] | [-(Actor: Creator/EkaDarville)-]
--> ''"Here we go, people. Let's bring the pain."''

The leader of the team, Scott is a former Air Force pilot who longs for the approval of his overbearing father, Colonel Truman. Scarred by the death of his older brother, Marcus, Scott is often doubtful of his ability to lead the Rangers to victory, though he doesn't let that stop him.
* BashBrothers: Commonly with Flynn as he's the one guy who regurlarly follows his orders and doesn't give too much back talk. He slowly grows with Dillon into this over the course of the series, though they won't admit it.
* BerserkButton: Never put a scratch on his car, just don't!
* BettyAndVeronica: The Betty to Dillon's Veronica for Summer's Archie.
* CoolCar: [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience It's painted red]]. It's his pride and joy.
* CoolSword: Street Saber
** Despite only one or two actual uses, the Rail Saber counts, too.
* DanceBattler: His actor is apparently trained in Capoeira, it shows in the unmorphed fight scenes.
* DeadpanSnarker: Despite his perceived Plain Jane qualities, he gets in some pretty good lines here and there. Especially when he's exasperated, then he goes into full on SarcasmMode.
* TheHero: He's in charge, even though Dillon is [[SupportingProtagonist the main character]].
* HeroesPreferSwords: His special weapon is a broadsword.
* IOweYouMyLife: To Summer, after he was shot down and wounded before Corinth was sealed. [[RescueRomance This is implied to be the moment he became smitten with her too.]]
* ItsPersonal: With Shifter, after the 'bot tries to control him.
* LawOfChromaticSuperiority: Only Ranger to pilot the Paleozords. He doesn't get a Battlizer, though.
* LoveInterest: To Summer. However she's torn most of the series between him and Dillon.
* TheLeader: To the RPM Rangers.
* NiceGuy: Despite his slightly cynical nature, he really is a good guy. This is what both attracts Summer to him but also is the reason she doesn't choose him, as she's even more attracted to Dillon's bad boy persona. True to trope, he comes to terms with this, remains friends with her, and supports he wishes.
* StandardizedLeader: Though downplayed thanks to his father issues and inferiority complex.
* SuperSpeed: His suit ability charges his body with energy, and shoots him off at a high speed.
* WellDoneSonGuy: A good deal of his character arc is this. He seeks to full the void left by his brother's death to his dad by being the best he can be. Which in this case is being as great a leader as his father is. Even then once he proves himself to his dad he also has to contend with him from a leadership position when his team mates go against protocol.

!![[color:blue:Flynn [=McAllistair=] / Ranger Operator Series Blue]] | [-(Actor: Ari Boyland)-]

--> ''"This is how we do it GLASGOW STYLE!"''

A former police officer, firefighter, and foreign aid worker of Scottish descent, Flynn has a pathological need to help people that often gets him into trouble. As the team mechanic he's responsible for keeping their gear working, and has been known to improvise solutions to a number of problems.
* AscendedFanboy: Ever since he was a kid, all he wanted to be was a hero like the ones he read about in comic books. After years of failing to help in regular life, he fulfills his dream by becoming the Blue RPM Ranger.
* BadassDriver: His introductory scene is him driving a run down bus full of civilians through a horde of grinders and blasters to safety. [[spoiler:The only damage to the bus was a front plate that didn't fall off until after he got past the grinder horde.]]
* {{BFG}}: Turbo Cannon
* BigEater: It's largely implied considering he was the one huge on the wedding reception and always exasperated when he has to waste food.
* TheBigGuy: In an aversion of the usual blue position, Flynn is the team muscle, though [[GeniusBruiser he's no slouch in the brains department either]].
* BraveScot: To the extreme, skirting the lines of parody, but always a badass.
* CoolCar: [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience Blue]].
* GeniusBruiser: He's the best with machinery and tools among the Rangers and is a big, tough brawler in a fight.
* RunningGag: He never gets to drink a smoothie, does he?
* SamaritanSyndrome: His previous jobs all revolved around helping people, but his uncompromising principles always led to him getting fired. The turning point was the incident that led to him saving the bus full of refugees seen in the pilot episode.
* UsefulNotes/{{Scotland}}: Complete with thick accent. Played by a Kiwi. HilarityEnsues.
* ShipTease: With Gemma. Though sadly we never see them get together on screen.
* TimeStop: As his suit power; manifests itself as SuperSpeed.
* WeaponizedExhaust: His solution for clearing his suit's energy channels (to both allow him to morph and fix the Time Stop ability) in "Ranger Blue" is to insert the Engine Cell backwards, allowing all that excess energy to be channeled into the "run-off explosion" (as Ziggy puts it) and ramp it UpToEleven...which he puts to good use by putting the bad guys behind him as he morphs. [[AwesomeMoment Even Dr. K is dumbfounded by his brilliance]].
* WellDoneSonGuy: Though not to Scott's extent, and only as a kid. Upon arriving at Corinth, his dad is fully supportive of him.

!![[color:gold:Summer Landsdown / Ranger Operator Series Yellow]] | [-(Actress: Rose [=McIver=])-]

--> ''"I don't care where you came from. I want to know where you're going."''

A spoiled rich girl who barely made it into Corinth alive, Summer experienced an epiphany and decided that she wanted to help people. She's determined to save Dillon, despite his own strong objections, and frequently plays the mediator between he and Scott.
* ActionGirl: She's usually the first in the group to charge to the grinders.
* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: With Dillon of course, which is why she chooses him over Scott.
* ArrangedMarriage: And thankfully subverted.
* BadassBiker: Used for a ''Franchise/KamenRider'' ShoutOut, too.
* BettyAndVeronica: The Archie for Scott's Betty and Dillon's Veronica.
* BikerBabe: She's the only one who uses a motorcycle for transport.
* BreakTheHaughty: As seen in her two-part WholeEpisodeFlashback. First, the end of the world happens. Then she's left behind by soldiers, with her closest friendly actually ''shoving her'' off the back of the truck while the Venjix bots attack. Then, after some time travelling the wastelands with the closest thing she has to a father figure, he's killed (like, properly, for real dies) right in front of her.
* BroodingBoyGentleGirl: The Gentle Girl to Dillon's Brooding Boy.
* CompositeCharacter. While she takes her designation from her Go-onger counterpart Saki, her backstory is more based on Miu Sutou, who also comes from a wealthy family.
%%* TheChick
* EnergyBall[=/=]{{Kamehamehadoken}}: Her suit ability
* FairWeatherFriend: Was surrounded by these before the Venjix attack. Special mention must go to the one who ''threw her off a moving truck'', then expected to still be best friends a year later, insisting that she knew Summer would be fine.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: The Zip Charger is basically an AttackDrone in the size and shape of a toy car, used to ram targets repeatedly.
* KamehameHadoken: Summer's Ranger Suit ability allows her to fire off a massive ball of energy.
* KickingAssInAllHerFinery: In "Ranger Yellow, Part 2" Grinders storm her wedding, and she spends most of the fight kicking ass in her wedding dress.... and some of the fight kicking ass WITH her wedding dress
* LonelyRichKid: Pre Venjix Apocolypse.
* MsFanservice: She has the good looks, Her hair, her outfit, [[GagBoobs Even her body]].
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Some of her abilities are established from the beginning, implied or at least foreshadowed... and then some [[AssPull appear out of nowhere]], like hypnotizing.
* ParentalAbandonment: Pre-Apocalypse her parents merely gave her access to large amounts of money and left her with her surrogate father-butler. Post-Apocolypse they had an agreement to basically stay out of her life when she actually wanted to make a change. For all it's worth, they're on good terms.
* RichBitch: Subverted. While she was engorged in her highly luxurious life style and surrounded herself with vapid bimbos, she honestly was a good person. Just one not prepared enough for the real world, much less a post-apocalyptic one.
* TokenGirl: Until Gemma showed up.
* TookALevelInBadass: Before the first episode, on her journey alone across the wastelands. She went from a lazy empty-minded RichBitch to a first-class badass ActionGirl.
* UptownGirl: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0BaKU9KBSuo&list=PLsjFZmD5pCed4WvgpLd0sJEJA7R9KntvI&index=96 Yep]]
* WackyParentSeriousChild: Not so much wacky as a bad case of RichInDollarsPoorInSense, but Summer is definitely the serious, responsible one in the family, much to her annoyance.

!![[color:black:Dillon / Ranger Operator Series Black]] | [-(Actor: Dan Ewing)-]

--> ''"You guys are the answer. I'm just looking for the question."''

A {{cyborg}} with amnesia and something of an attitude problem, Dillon is recruited into the Rangers as part of a work-release program from Corinth's jail. He wants to find out more about his past, has a mild rivalry with Scott, a fair amount of UnresolvedSexualTension with Summer, and a close friendship with Ziggy.
* NinetiesAntiHero: He is a brooding cyborg with a mysterious past. He drives around in a CoolCar amidst the apocalypse. His color is black and his AnimalMotif is wolf.
* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Summer certainly does.
* BadassDriver: "If that [[HumongousMecha thing]] has a steering wheel, I can drive it." He makes it through the barricade in broad daylight during the first episode, something Ziggy thought was impossible, [[spoiler: and later does it again with Tenaya providing cover fire]].
* BarrierWarrior: His suit ability.
* BerserkButton: Don't damage ''his'' car, either.
* BettyAndVeronica: The Veronica to Scott's Betty for Summer's Archie.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Towards Ziggy. Though he's constantly irritated by him he won't let any danger actually come to him. His one request for anything was to get him out of jail.
* BroodingBoyGentleGirl: Brooding Boy to Summer's Gentle Girl.
* CoolCar: The other one in the garage. And [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience it's painted black]].
* DeadpanSnarker: One of his defining traits.
* DeflectorShields: His ranger power. It lasts for ten seconds but is very powerful when used correctly/
* {{Expy}}: Of Wolverine from ''ComicBook/XMen''. He's the brooding loner who's JerkWithAHeartOfGold, has a DarkAndTroubledPast involving being experimented on, and is in a love triangle with the leader and his love interest.
* EveryoneHasPistols: Rocket Blaster
* HalfHumanHybrid: He possesses Venjix cyborg implants that give him enhanced physical abilities.
* HandCannon: Rocket Blaster
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Ziggy.
* HollywoodCyborg: He's a cyborg.
* HotBlooded: When dealing with Summer's arranged marriage, he repeatedly has to be held back by Scott from yelling at her parents.
* ImplacableMan: During the situation with the Venjix bot that has his memories, Dr. K remotely freezes up his suit. He regains control via pure force of will. The attack bot shoots everything it has at him. Not only does Dillon keep coming, he doesn't even give any sign he ''felt the attacks''.
* IWasJustPassingThrough: No one's buying it.
* TheLancer: Can also qualify as TheBigGuy due to his cyborg parts giving him increased combat prowess.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: His memories were removed by Venjix. Not erased, a bot literally took them away and ran off with them.
* LukeIAmYourFather: [[spoiler: Dillon is Tenaya's brother.]] Though the fans already knew it anyway.
* MrFanservice: Dan Ewing embodies this trope.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Dillon isn't his real name [[spoiler: and he ''never'' actually learns the real one.]]
* PhlebotinumRebel: [[Franchise/KamenRider Kidnapped by the enemy? Check! Gotten implants by said enemy giving him enhanced strength? CHeck! Uses these abilities to fight against said enemy? Check!!]]
%%* TheQuietOne
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: Manly Man to Ziggy's Sensitive Guy.
* {{Sizeshifter}}: Dan Ewing embodies TallDarkAndHandsome trope, yet Dillon notably gets shorter while helmeted, for [[StockFootage certain reason]].
* SuperReflexes: Thanks to his cyborg implants.
* SupportingProtagonist: He is the central character, but Scott is their leader.
* TroubledButCute
* YouAreNumberSix: Known among the Venjix collective as Subject D-44.

!![[color:green:Ziggy Grover / Ranger Operator Series Green]] | [-(Actor: Milo Cawthorne)-]

--> ''"In times like this, there is one question that needs to be answered: are we, or are we not, the good guys?"''

An ex-mobster with a streak of bad luck, Ziggy becomes friends with Dillon after he tried to rob the brooding Black Ranger in the pilot. Hired to find a Green Ranger candidate, he ends up putting the morpher on himself to protect it from Tenaya 7. Has a complicated relationship with Dr. K.
* AnAxeToGrind: Turbo Ax. Ironic, given his fighting prowess.
* BadassUnintentional: His first morph. Well, most of the season really.
* ButtMonkey: Poor Ziggy. It seems that barely an episode can go by without the Green Ranger totally embarrassing himself in some way. Best reflected by his first ever morph. Previous rangers, whether they JumpedAtTheCall, were [[FallingIntoTheCockpit thrown in the cockpit]] or even stole their powers, always morphed with a fair amount of dignity and grace the first time. What's Ziggy's first line upon realising what he has become?
-->'''Ziggy:''' Woah! I'm a Power Ranger! I don't wanna be a Power Ranger! I do '''not''' want to be a Power Ranger!
::He then proceeds to get kicked all over the place.
* ConvenientlyAnOrphan: Implied to have been raised in an OrphanageOfLove.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Despite not being very bright, Ziggy does get a hold of his powers quickly.
* [[FallingIntotheCockpit Falling Into The Ranger Suit]]: He had to use the morpher to keep Tenaya from bonding with it.
* GivingTheSwordToANoob: The Rangers' morphers are designed to be operable ''only'' by the first person to use it, as it recorded his DNA as a security lock. Because of the situation, it was he or one of the bad guys, so...
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Dillon.
* ImprovFu: The PluckyComicRelief became a Power Ranger by accident and out of desperation so he had no qualifications or skills to actually be a good fighter. Instead he mostly runs around a fight scene dodging enemies or using nearby props as weapons and ways to protect himself. He gets better at hand to hand throughout the series though.
%%* {{Keet}}
* LimitedWardrobe: While all characters apply, Ziggy gets a special mention, as it only happens ''after'' he becomes a Ranger. Before that, he used different clothes.
* TheMafia: Was a member of it.
* MentorShip: With Dr. K.
* MetaGuy: "Weird? Okay, [[ActionGirl you]] cruise around in a giant yellow teddy-bear, okay? I drive a big, green FISH! Look in the mirror, people, [[CrowningMomentOfFunny we're in no position to be sitting in judgment of anything weird!]]"
* MinionWithAnFInEvil: During his time in the mafia, on account of being as threatening as a fuzzy pillow.
* MotorMouth
* NonActionGuy: He hides behind Dillon in his first fight, and is the only Ranger in history that doesn't get insta-martial arts. He becomes a fairly capable fighter later in the show.
* PassThePopcorn: He is often seen munching on a bag of popcorn when the other Rangers are squabbling with each other/Doctor K.
* PluckyComicRelief
* ResignedToTheCall: Only reason he can't fork his Morpher to anyone else is because it's locked to him.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: Sensitive Guy to Dillon's Manly Man.
* TheSoCalledCoward: While he is never called a coward, the trope still applies.
* TeleportSpam: His suit ability. Used primarily for laughs though.
* TookALevelInBadass: From a cowardly opportunist we first see in the first episode, to a brave, optimistic, and active ranger ready to defend his loved ones as best he can.

!![[color:goldenrod:Gem]] and [[color:silver:Gemma]] / Ranger Operator Series [[color:goldenrod:Gold]] and [[color:silver:Silver]] | [-(Actors: Mike Ginn and Li Ming Hu)-]

-->''"It's Boom time!"''

The former test pilots for the Ranger gear, Gem and Gemma are a pair of utterly demented twins who narrowly escaped the destruction of the facility where they were raised. Equipped with the prototype Gold and Silver suits, and a love of explosions, they wage a private war against Venjix before being recruited partway through the show.
* ActionGirl: Gemma
* {{The Berserker}}s
* BigDamnHeroes: With {{Big Damn Gunship}}s. It's how they first show up as Rangers, blasting Venjix, who up until that point had been unstoppable, out of the skies with ease.
* ChromeChampion: Gold and Silver Rangers.
* CuteAndPsycho: They have the immaturity and docileness of children, the intelligence of Einstein, but are crazier than cat's cradle.
* TheDividual: Twindividual variety.
* DisneyDeath: [[spoiler: Twice. Dr K assumes they died when they were dragged back when they tried to help her escape Alphabet Soup, but turned up later as the {{Sixth Ranger}}s. In the final episode, they get deleted from the biofield, but reappear just fine for the finale.]]
* ElementalPowers
** AnIcePerson: Gemma's favored Cloud Hatchet setting.
** PlayingWithFire: Gem's favored Cloud Hatchet setting.
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: Gemma in particular likes to spin around when fighting.
* FinishingEachOthersSentences: They do this a lot, but largely grow out of it as they work past their NoSocialSkills.
* GeniusDitz: They are smarter than they look.
* GenkiGuy and GenkiGirl: Pretty much what can be described as their personality.
* IncomingHam: Gemma's first on-screen fight has her leaping into battle going "woohoo".
* InnocentlyInsensitive: Frequently. At one point, Gem has to have it explained that his gloating about getting the Medal of Valor was striking Scott's WellDoneSonGuy nerve.
* KnifeNut: Their Cloud Hatchets, one for each.
* NoSocialSkills: Due to being raised by scientists.
* OnlyFriend: They were the closest thing Dr. K had to friends in Alphabet Soup. Finding out they're alive actually causes her to hug them, and cry.
* OnlyOneName: Probably intentional as Alphabet Soup didn't care enough to give them last names.
* PsychopathicManchild: "We love to blow things up!"
* SingleMindedTwins: They are [[TheDividual twindividual]] who close to each other and like finishing each other's sentence.
--->'''Flynn:''' (upon hearing Gemma wants to build something with him) You and me? Not you and Gem? You're not gonna finish my sentences, are ya?
* ShipTease: Gemma/Flynn
* {{Sixth Ranger}}s: They are sixth and seventh rangers for the team, specifically.
* {{Stepford Smiler}}s: Type C
* ThemeTwinNaming: It may be a play on the Gemini sign.
* WrenchWench: Gemma, who helps Flynn finish the Road Attack Zord.

[[folder:Their Friends]]

!!Dr. K | [-(Actress: Creator/OliviaTennet)-]
--> ''"I've made errors. But I've also learned that even the most flawed human is better than the most perfect machine."''

A socially crippled genius raised in a secret government facility, Dr. K is the designer of the Ranger technology, and has her own, personal reasons for wanting to see Venjix destroyed. Not particularly trusting, she has a somewhat antagonistic relationship with her team, ''especially'' Ziggy.
* {{Adorkable}}: Due to her more stoic personality clashing with her age and awkward attempts at being more social. And her bunny slippers.
%%* BadassAdorable
* BerserkButton: Don't call the suits "spandex" in front of her. Not even schoolchildren are safe from her wrath. ("Tights" seems to be OK.)
* BrokenBird: [[spoiler: Being [[NoSocialSkills brought up simply to]] [[ForScience develop technology and software]] all her life, and being told she was photosensitive to keep her from going outdoors, will do that]].
* BrutalHonesty: She has pretty much no filters, even when she's trying to be nice. For example, telling Summer she looks beautiful in a wedding dress, then admitting she doesn't think so, but that's what she's supposed to say. Most of the brutality comes out in conversation with Ziggy.
* DeadpanSnarker: Though she barely even notices she's snarking.
* DefrostingIceQueen: Takes her a good while into the series to become something even resembling friendly toward the team and half again as long (translation: nearly to the very end of the series) to finally [[spoiler: warm up to Ziggy]].
* TheDogBitesBack: [[spoiler:Given how Alphabet Soup treated her and finding out about their lies, her releasing Venjix into their systems can be seen like this]].
* GeniusSweetTooth: She eats enough sweets to give the whole team diabetes.
%%* HotScientist
* {{Irony}}: Somewhat. When she was growing up in Alphabet soup, she was told that she was allergic to the sun and could never go outside. This was a lie to make sure she never escaped. However K. is never seen outside without a cloak, the result of her having very sensitive and fair skin from being cooped inside up by a lie. The lie caused the truth in a way.
* InsistentTerminology:
** It's Bio-Armor, not spandex!
-->'''Dr. K:''' The material is a self-assembling nano-fiber formed with an inter-cellular shape memory alloy.
** Schoolkids on a field trip get a Q&A session with the Rangers, and K has to be restrained when the S-word comes up.
** She is ''very'' insistent on terminology. During the Q&A session she holds with her Series Operators in the beginning of "Ranger Blue", Scott asks her about the eyes in front of their Zords. She tells them that they are not eyes, but that they are actually optical field scanning sensors for their cockpit's displays. But, of course, this doesn't go around the fact that...
-->'''Dillon:''' They look like eyes!\\
'''Ziggy:''' Big, googly {{anime}} eyes.
* LittleMissBadass: While she's not a fighter, she can certainly hold her own even when outclassed such as managing to defeat Tenaya 7 using her violin sound cannon and rescue Ziggy from the Scorpion Cartel base.
* LittleMissSnarker: Most of the time she doesn't even realize it.
* MentorShip: With Ziggy.
* MusicalAssassin: Her violin packs quite a punch.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler:She's the one who developed the Venjix virus albeit just for the building she was in and nothing beyond that. But in truth this should extend to the organization that was looking after her. As if they had just let her get out once in a while. She would never have made it in the first place and even then should've at least let her install the firewall. They knew what she was a genius so they should've at least heeded her words]].
* NoNameGiven: K was refered to by her codename for so long that she doesn't even remember her real one.
* NoSocialSkills: Growing up for majority of her childhood as an isolated genius with only two adults that drop in to tell her to calculate new technology will do that to you.
* NotSoAboveItAll: She admits to Summer that she actually thinks Scott and Dillon are cute, even having measured just how cute they are according to a scale. One of them is apparently a 10 on this scale. Which one? [[RiddleForTheAges She never says]].
* NotThatKindOfDoctor: She's not a medical doctor, in case you hadn't figure it out already.
* OneLetterName: K.
* SamusIsAGirl: Attempted, with somewhat predictable results.
* ShameIfSomethingHappened: How Dr K convinces the Colonel to heed her request.
-->'''Dr. K:''' When I was eleven years old, I was asked to develop a colorless and odorless substance that when added to a person's beverage, it would instantaneously stricken the recipient with diarrhea a thousand times more extreme than the worst case of dysentery ever recorded. Now, Colonel, can you, in your wildest imagination, ever dream of a situation where someone would resort to using a substance like that?
** Note that she said this to Truman as he was raising his cup of coffee to his mouth.
* ShorterMeansSmarter: She is shorter than pretty much everyone else.
* StoicWoobie: She's in the running for having it the worst out of all the characters on the show, as she was [[spoiler: kidnapped by the government and forced to develop weapons for them for ''years'' until her escape attempt is foiled by the military, which in turn kept her from installing a firewall in her computer's systems that would've kept Venjix locked to Alphabet Soup's systems. All the blood on Venjix's hands is on hers by proxy and she ''knows it''.]]
* SugarAndIcePersonality: She can show affection to people that she indeed really does care about, though she overall prefers to remain cold.
* SupportingProtagonist: The whole series is her trying to fix the disaster she caused.
* TeenGenius: She's even younger than the Rangers.

!!Col. Mason Truman | [-(Actor: James Gaylyn)-]

Scott's father and the leader of Corinth's defence forces, Colonel Truman is a paranoid, suspicious man who has no desire to ever leave the dome, preferring to wait Venjix out. He has a difficult relationship with his son and Dr. K. Has the distinction of being one of the few competent {{muggle}}s in the franchise.
* BadassNormal: More than capable of taking out a few Grinders, even when armed only with the standard laser pistols given to the guards.
* BaldBlackLeaderGuy: He is bald and black.
* ColonelBadass: It's his rank.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: ''Most'' of the time
* TooDumbToLive: ONLY regarding Dr. K. [[spoiler: He tries to arrest her, the only person in the world who fully understand the Ranger technology and therefore, the only person capable of stopping Venjix, after discovering she created it.]]
* YouLookFamiliar: Played a past ninja master for one episode of ''Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm'' (he was the guy who banished Lothor from Earth).
** He later returns in ''Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge'' as Shelby's dad.

!!Corporal Hicks | [-(Actor: Damien Avery)-]

* AscendedExtra: Despite not being listed as a main character, Hicks has a considerable amount of screentime throughout the series. Especially when it's revealed [[spoiler: that he was a HalfHumanHybrid under Venjix's control since day one]].
* ClassicallyTrainedExtra: Look at Damien Avery's [[http://www.damienavery.com/bio/resume.php resume]]
* [[spoiler: HalfHumanHybrid]]: [[spoiler:First of the secret hybrids to be revealed]].
* TheKlutz: [[spoiler: Its just an act.]]

!!Vasquez | [-(Actress: Mia Koning)-]

* DistaffCounterpart: To Hicks
* [[spoiler:HalfHumanHybrid]]
* PerformanceAnxiety: When all of the male soldiers are taken out, she cracks under the pressure to run the command center herself.
* VoiceOfTheResistance: It's Vasquez who provides the radio transmissions that lead any survivors to Corinth.

[[folder:Their Enemies]]

!!Venjix | [-(Voice actor: Andrew Laing)-]
[[caption-width-right:350:Standard Form]]
[[caption-width-right:350:Robot Form]]

--> ''"I brought a legion. What did ''you'' bring?"''

A lethal computer virus that gained sentience and proceeded to TakeOverTheWorld...after reducing the human population to a few million. He's now out to finish the job by annihilating Corinth and the Power Rangers.
* AIIsACrapshoot: More like virus, but still.
* BadBoss: To the point where he'll order the murder of loyal minions for no real reason. This ultimately costs him the war when his plan to allow Tenaya 15 to execute Kilobyte convinces Kilobyte to try and kill her first, leading to Dillon's saving of Tenaya.
* BadassBoast: His first line: "I am Venjix! Your world is now MY world, and YOUR time is now OVER!"
** Another one in "Embodied:" "I am Venjix! The one, immortal ME!"
* BeardOfEvil: Sports a truly magnificent one in his most advanced body
* BigBad: For this series.
* CaptainErsatz: Of [[Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey HAL 9000]], [[Creator/{{Toonami}} Swayzak]], and [[Franchise/{{Terminator}} Skynet]], with shades of ComicBook/{{Ultron}} and the [[Film/{{Tron}} MCP's]] voice thrown in for good measure.
* CompositeCharacter: Of Land Pollution Vice-Minister Hiramechimedes and Yogoshimacritein of ''Series/EngineSentaiGoOnger.''
* CurbStompBattle: When he faces off against the Rangers for the first time. If it wasn't for [[spoiler: Gem and Gemma]] he would have easily won.
* CyberCyclops: In his cylinder form.
* EvilCounterpart: Perhaps unintentionally, of Zordon. He has a proper and booming voice, communicates to his men from a floor-to-ceiling cylinder, his lair resembles the original Command Center and it's even located in the desert.
* EvilSoundsDeep: He has THE deepest voice of all PR villains.
* {{Expy}}: While obviously one of ''[[Franchise/{{Terminator}} Skynet]]'', he bares even more similarities to ''ComicBook/{{Ultron}}''. He's a sentient A.I. [[spoiler: created by one of the heroes]] who aspires to destroy all humanity, creates robots to aid him in plans and creates new bodies to help him face his enemies personally.
* FightingAShadow: Twice the Rangers thought they had destroyed Venjix but he always came back.
--> ''"I am Venix! I am immortal! I can download my being into many bodies, many forms, but always ME. Always unstoppable!"''
* KillAllHumans: His goal.
* KnightOfCerebus: There is nothing humorous about the villain with the highest body count in the franchise.
* LargeHam / EvilIsHammy: Delivers almost all of it's dialogue in the hammiest manner possible
* LightningBruiser: His first body is one of these, being fast enough to dodge the Rangers' attacks, durable enough to withstand them, and capable of defeating them all in a few blows.
* MakeMyMonsterGrow: Just like many other {{Big Bad}}s in the previous series.
* MidSeasonUpgrade: [[spoiler: He eventually gains an Attack Bot that serves as his avatar when he wishes to combat the Rangers.]]
* MightyGlacier: His final body is so huge and slow as to be almost immobile, but can take any punishment the Rangers care to throw at it, and when he hits them, they go down very swiftly.
* NotQuiteDead: [[spoiler: The ending of the series implies that he survived the explosion and ended up in Scott's morpher]]
* OneManArmy: Any time he downloads into a body, it will likely be one of these.
* OneSteveLimit: An aversion - he has nothing to do with the [[Series/PowerRangersWildForce previous]] Venjix. Complete coincidence, or a reference that was taken too seriously? ''You'' decide.
* OrcusOnHisThrone: For the earlier episodes; all he did was MakeMyMonsterGrow.
* SealedEvilInACan: It began its existence more or less as a sealed evil. The program for the sentient, self-replicating, computer virus was initially created and contained in a single laptop. That is until Dr. K, in a attempt to escape her circumstances, decided to infect Alphabet Soup's computer network with the virus but was stopped short from installing a firewall to prevent further spread. The result was an infection of nearly every computer system connected to the internet and the destruction of nearly the entire human race. It is hinted that it also becomes one of these again, as opposed to being destroyed, at the end of ''RPM'' with the Venjix Palace music playing as the camera focuses in on Ranger Red's morpher with a blinking red light.
* TakeOverTheWorld: Also his goal, beside killing all humans.
* TooDumbToLive: In the final episode, after Gem and Gemma destroy the Control Tower's supports it takes about 45 seconds for it to fall from the roof of the dome to the ground, he just stands directly under the tower preparing for his [[BigNo demise]] when all he needed to do was survive it was to simply move out of the way, It's rather unbelievable that this was the being that destroyed the Earth yet he can't even see danger coming from a mile away. Of course, this ends up being a SubvertedTrope in the end as Dr. K shuts the briefcase containing the Ranger Series morphers...with [[TheEndOrIsIt a familiar red glow]] emitting from Ranger Series Red's morpher, and with his leitmotif playing softly in the background.
* VileVillainSaccharineShow: As serious as RPM is, it's still Power Rangers. It still features humor like a talent show to find a green ranger or Dr. K's slippers. Venjix is the source of all seriousness in this season.

!!General Shifter [-(Voice actor: Mark Mitchinson)-]

One of Venjix's generals, his job is to design new attack bots. When Tenaya 7 frames him for trying to murder Venjix, Shifter is exiled and forced to act on his own, vowing vengeance against Venjix and the Rangers alike.
* BladeOnAStick: His weapon of choice is a spear.
* CombatTentacles: Manifests them after using the Hyperbot's arm to upgrade himself.
* EvilGenius: His job is to design new attack bots. He's still pretty dumb otherwise.
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: By Scott]]
* MadScientist: He builds several robots, including Venjix's first body.
* MistreatmentInducedBetrayal: Why he turns on Venjix.
* NonIndicativeName: The big guy who looks like he could crunch you is Shifter.

* PeoplePuppets: Turns Scott into one as part of his master plan.
* TookALevelInBadass: After striking out on his own, and particularly after attaching the arm of the Hyperbot to his shoulder.
* ThoseTwoBadGuys: With Crunch.

!!General Crunch| [-(Voice actors: Charlie [=McDermott=])-]

One of Venjix's generals, though his job remains largely undefined.
* AdaptationalIntelligence: Inverted, in terms of intelligence that is. Crunch' Go-Onger counterpart, Kitaneidas, was actually the evil genius of the villains, while Crunch comes over as the dumb muscle of Venjix' crew.
* CarryABigStick: Wields a club/staff combination.
* TheDarkChick: In what little face-time he has.
* DumbMuscle: Embarrassingly so.
* DumbassHasAPoint: That said, he raises good questions to Venjix, {{Lampshading}} the conventions of a usual Power Rangers show:
-->I have a question, your most Venjixness. Are you going to supersize the Nozz-Bot now, or wait until the Rangers defeat it first?
** Or:
-->Seeing as I'm already a mess, I'm just going to ask. Why do we never send in the drones whenever the city's shields are down?
** Both times, he gets blasted.
* GigglingVillain: Constantly.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:When headquarters is dropped onto Venjix]].
* NonIndicativeName: The shifty-looking guy is Crunch.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: He's a capable enough fighter, and his balloon monster, while ridiculous looking wasn't any easier to defeat than the rest of Venjix's monsters.
* TheResenter: Towards Tenaya 7, and anyone else who stands higher in Venjix's good graces than he does.
* ServileSnarker: See 'DumbassHasAPoint' above.
* ThoseTwoBadGuys: With Shifter.
* VocalEvolution: Sounded more goofier in his first appearance before his actor started portraying him in a more crazy fashion

!!Tenaya 7/Tenaya 15 | [-(Actress: Creator/AdelaideKane)-]
A cyborg built for infiltration, Tenaya 7 is Venjix's right-hand woman for most of the show, commanding the Grinders, carrying out his plans, and trying to hide her frustration with Shifter and Crunch.
* BerserkButton: Don't call her either human or cute.
* CainAndAbel: [[spoiler: The Cain to Dillon's Abel]].
%%* ChekhovMIA
* DarkActionGirl: She's good fighter.
* DeadpanSnarker
* TheDragon: Tenaya 7 quickly takes this position after she's built, only to lose it to Kilobyte in the aftermath of her failures and his triumphant return. As Tenaya 15 she's on the verge of regaining her post, only for Kilobyte to try and kill her off.
* {{Expy}}: Arguably, of [[spoiler:[[Series/PowerRangersInSpace Astronema]]]].
* HalfHumanHybrid: [[spoiler: She's a cyborg.]]
* HeelFaceTurn: Just like Astronema before her.
** BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler:...then is promptly reprogrammed into Tenaya 15]].
** HeelFaceMindScrew: [[spoiler:She gets better in the end]].
* {{Irony}}: [[spoiler:She hated being called human, and learns she IS one]].
* {{Leitmotif}}[=/=]CallingCard: A whistled, instrumental version of The Farmer in the Dell.
* LongLostRelative: [[spoiler: She's Dillon's long lost sister.]] It was obvious to the fans, though.
* MidSeasonUpgrade: From Tenaya 7 to Tenaya 15. It also involves the total loss of her free will, rendering her little more than a Venjix puppet.
* TheMole: As her original purpose.
* MsFanservice: Her skin tight outfit leaves little to the imagination.
* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Woman]] - With a hint of DeadpanSnarker to boot.
* TheRival: To Kilobyte.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: [[spoiler: Unlike Kegaleshia, the closest thing she has to a ''Go-Onger'' counterpart, Tenaya survives]].
* UnroboticReveal: [[spoiler: She is actually a human that was modified with cybernetic enhancement]].

!!General Kilobyte | [-(Voice actor: Leighton Cardno)-]
--> ''"You put a human against a machine, the machine will win every time."''

One of Venjix's most trusted generals, he was believed to have been lost during the war. He returns two thirds of the way through the series, and challenges Tenaya for the position of Venjix's right-hand robot, winning out. Arrogant and highly protective of his position, he is nonetheless one of the Rangers' most capable adversaries.
* AdaptationExpansion: RPM makes him a major villain, as opposed to his Go-Onger counterpart which only appeared for three episodes.
* BadassCape: He wears one.
* BadassInANiceSuit: His mantle has the appearance of a tie and lapels.
* CurbStompBattle: He's introduced giving one to Tenaya 7 and delivers a brutal one to the entire Ranger team during their first battle. During "Danger & Destiny" he inflicts another one on Tenaya 15 ''and'' Dillon, nearly killing them before he's [[spoiler:fatally]] interrupted.
* DeadpanSnarker: Especially towards Tenaya.
* TheDragon: Replaces Tenaya 7 in this role, and fights to keep it from Tenaya 15.
* TheStarscream: He goes rogue and betrays Venjix near the end of the series, due to being unappreciated by him.
* EnigmaticMinion: [[spoiler:His loyalty never wavers, but he's ''very'' protective of his position, leading him to occasionally go behind Venjix's back.]]
* EvilBrit: Both his first and second voice actors affect appropriately snooty British accents.
* EvilSoundsDeep: In his first episode, Kilobyte had a deep, imposing voice. In all his appearances afterwards, his voice in higher and slimier.
* TheFightingNarcissist: Complete with stopping to brush his "hair" after every strike.
* FourStarBadass: Second only to Venjix himself when it comes to the ability to give the Rangers a beating.
* InTheBack: Does this to Tenaya. [[spoiler:Is on the receiving end of it from Scott, Summer, and Flynn]].
* IronicEcho: "No one likes a cheap shot." He says it twice: the first time when Tenaya 7 tries to stab him in the back, and the second time when he shoots her in the back.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:Shot InTheBack by Summer, Scott, and Flynn moments before he can finish off Dillon and Tenaya]].
* KlingonPromotion: Inverted. Rightly fearing that Tenaya 15--his own creation--will replace him as Venjix's favoured general, he moves to kill her while Venjix is distracted by conquering Corinth.
* LightningBruiser: Slim. Agile. Well-armoured. Hits like a freight train. There's a reason he's Venjix's most feared general.
%%* ManipulativeBastard:
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: His battle with Tenaya 15 becomes one of these by the end, as he slowly beats her into scrap.
* OneManArmy: Takes on all the Rangers and Corinth's defence forces in his first appearance, and cuts through an army of Grinders in his second.
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: Misogynistic and racist towards humans.
* TheRival: To Tenaya 7/15.
* RoboticPsychopath: Kilobyte is what he is because Venjix built him that way.
* SinisterScimitar: Wields one.
* StayInTheKitchen
--> "You think because I look like a human girl, I can't bring it."
--> "No, I think that because you are ''programmed'' like a human girl you cannot "bring it"."
* SwordAndGun: Combos a blaster rifle with a SinisterScimitar.
* SwordBeam: His special attack projects beams from his scimitar.

!!Fresno Bob | [-(Actor: John Summer)-]

The head of the Scorpion Cartel, and one of the most powerful mobsters in Corinth, Fresno Bob has it in for Ziggy, who once robbed him of five million dollars worth of medical supplies. Ruthless and uncaring, he is willing to cut deals with anyone if it will get him his revenge.
* BerserkButton: Don't call him Bobarino.
* DealWithTheDevil: He traded Tenaya equipment to destroy humanity, just so he could get his hands on Ziggy.
* TheDon: Invoked so very hard.
* TheDreaded: Amongst Corinth's criminal element.
%%* EvilOldFolks
* IOweYouMyLife: How Bob and Ziggy eventually bury the hatchet.
* KarmaHoudini: Bob is a thief, a racketeer, and an attempted murderer, and that's just what we see him do onscreen. He walks away from the show unharmed.
%%* ManOfWealthAndTaste
* RevengeBeforeReason: Willing to put the whole human race at stake in order to kill Ziggy.
* ShamingTheMob: Attempted by Ziggy to end their rivalry.

!!Alphabet Soup

A corrupt Government facility that played a hand in Dr. K's backstory and how Venjix came to be.

* AmbiguouslyEvil: It is never revealed exactly why they [[spoiler: needed to kidnap young geniuses to work for them]], though considering what they were used for, it's unlikely they were for very noble purposes.
* TheFaceless: We never see the faces of the two Agents who kidnapped and supervised Dr. K.
* GreaterScopeVillain: [[spoiler:They kidnapped children like Dr. K who had amazing intelligence and worked them to the bone, resulting in them forgetting their old lives and names. Dr. K turned one of their projects against them, but it spread far beyond Alphabet Soup and caused the end of the world. That project? Venjix.]]
* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: Apart from Venjix's army of robots, Alphabet Soup is shown to be much more sinister and are responsible for [[spoiler: not allowing Dr. K to install a firewall in her laptop to stop Venjix from infecting other computers and taking over the world.]]
* LackOfEmpathy: They were willing to kill Dr.K and let the world be destroyed than let anyone know [[spoiler: they were responsible for Venjix.]]
* LaserGuidedKarma: They kidnapped Dr. K as a child and made her forget even her real name, making her create weapons and advanced technology for them. [[spoiler:One of the results of the work she did for them became Venjix, who destroyed most of humanity. After her escape, any member of Alphabet Soup is either dead or heading to prison.]]
* WalkingSpoiler: Though they technically only appear in one episode, they have a greater purpose in the series overall.
