'''Our Heroes'''

!![[color:red:Wesley "Wes" Collins / Red Time Force Ranger]] | [-(Actor: Jason Faunt)-]
* ComingOfAgeStory: Wes grows from a somewhat spoiled son of a billionaire to a true Hero who takes control of his own life.
* TheHero: Played with. He's the main character, but he's an inexperienced NonActionGuy and not the actual leader of the team. He also doubled as TheLancer.
* LawOfChromaticSuperiority: Well, he ''is'' the Red Ranger, so he gets cool armor. Also see below.
* MissingMom: No word on what became of his mother.
* NonActionGuy: Subverted. While he was inexperienced, he was shown to be a very good fighter from the start.
* OfficialCouple: With Jen.
* RebelPrince: Mr. Collins wanted Wes to grow up to inherit the family business from him, but his grooming served only to alienate Wes from everyone around him. He jumps at the chance to be a RookieRedRanger, as it's the first time in his life he's fought for anything.
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Eric's blue.
* RookieRedRanger: He isn't part of Time Force itself, and he was just recruited because his DNA matched that of Alex's, which proves to be a plot point.
* ShelteredAristocrat: At the beginning.
* SpoiledSweet[=/=]NiceGuy: He was otherwise a decent person before becoming Ranger despite his father's influence.
* TookALevelInBadass: He was an inexperienced RookieRedRanger at first.
* WellDoneSonGuy: He wants his father to be proud of who he is.

!![[color:fuchsia:Jennifer "Jen" Scotts / Pink Time Force Ranger]] | [-(Actress: Erin Cahill)-]
* ActionGirl: Out of all the female rangers, she is the most battle-ready and is no less capable when unmorphed.
* AloofDarkHairedGirl: She's a woman with mostly no-nonsense attitude.
%%* {{Badass}}
%%* CuteBruiser
* DefrostingIceQueen: Was aloof to Wes at first. CharacterDevelopment in both her and Wes is crucial in changing this.
%%* FairCop
* HeartbrokenBadass: Her fiancee Alex appears to be killed in the first episode.
* IconicOutfit: From her reunion-show appearance in the next season, oddly.
%%* LethalChef
* MsFanservice: There's really no reason for Jen's 21st century outfit to include a tight, tiny miniskirt other than the fact that ''former model'' Erin Cahill is one of the most beautiful women to ever put on the pink spandex.
** Also, the [[FetishFuel leather suit]] from the episode "[[ReunionShow Reinforcements From The Future]]".
--> [[WebVideo/HistoryOfPowerRangers Linkara]]: "Holy crap, Jen, '''that's''' special assignment gear for Time Force?!?"
** ''Slightly'' justified in that fanservice itself is a tactical advantage, since even in 2012 guys are expected to be slightly dazed at the sight of a hot chick, and both outfits do keep her legs fairly free for kicking. One gets the sense that she doesn't really care if a criminal sees her panties, since she'll have knocked them out in five minutes anyway.
** Also mitigated by the fact that she apparently wears shorts under said skirt (as seen in "Time Force Traitor").
* OfficialCouple: First with Alex, then later with Wes.
* QuicklyDemotedLeader: Averted. Wes gets the Battlizer and standing-in-the-center perks of being Red, but she ''keeps'' her position as team leader, thank you very much.
%%* RavenHairIvorySkin
* ShesGotLegs: ''Hot damn!''
%%* StatuesqueStunner
* SupportingLeader: Actually, TheLeader.
* SupportingProtagonist: Wes is the Red Ranger, but Jen is arguably the Ranger that the season ''really'' focuses on.
* {{Tsundere}}: Initially towards Wes. The fact that he resembled the [[NotQuiteDead presumably]] KIA fiance didn't help.
* YouAreInCommandNow: Steelix turns her evil in ''Time Force Traitor''.

!![[color:blue:Lucas Kendall / Blue Time Force Ranger]] | [-(Actor: Michael Copon)-]
* BadassDriver: [[UniversalDriversLicense Too bad his 31st Century driver's license isn't valid in the 21st Century.]]
%%* {{Bishonen}}
* CompositeCharacter: Because Katie's Timeranger counterpart [[ShesAManInJapan is male]], Domon's personality is used for him along with his own Sentai counterpart Ayase, minus the IllBoy arc.
* DatingCatwoman: With Nadira in "Nadira's Dream Date". This would prompt Lucas to pull a PleaseDumpMe. [[spoiler:He gets back with her in ''Wild Force'']]. To explain, Lucas has a small book that he writes poetry. About his car. When he demorphed, that book fell to the ground and Nadira picked it up. Three guess as to what happened next.
%%* FairCop
%%* TheHeart
%%* MrFanservice
* [[GlassesPull Shades Pull]]: When he and Katie go to Nadira for help in "[[{{Crossover}} Reinforcements from the Future, Part 1]]".
%%* TallDarkAndHandsome

!![[color:gold:Katie Walker / Yellow Time Force Ranger]] | [-(Actress: Deborah Estelle Phillips)-]
%%* ActionGirl
* AloofDarkHairedGirl: Subverted, she's one of the nicest Rangers on the team.
%%* AmazonianBeauty
* BearHug: She gives some bone-crushing ones. Wes admits he'll miss them when they return home.
* TheBigGirl: Due to having SuperStrength.
* BlackBestFriend: She's the only African American on the team, but gets along with everyone.
%%* CuteBruiser
* DesignerBabies: The only non-mutant DB we meet with actual superpowers.
* DoesNotKnowHerOwnStrength: It's mostly under control, but watch out for those hugs.
%%* FairCop
%%* TheGlomp
* ShesAManInJapan: Along with four other Yellow Rangers in the franchise.
* StatuesqueStunner: She's one of the two tallest Rangers on this team.
* TeamMom: Fear her legendary hugs!

!![[color:green:Trip / Green Time Force Ranger]] | [-(Actor: Kevin Kleinberg)-]
* {{Adorkable}}: He's sweet and friendly but otherwise clumsy.
%%* BadassAdorable
* TheCutie: Male example.
* [[CuteClumsyGirl Cute Clumsy Boy]]: He tried, and failed, to woo a pretty girl to prove he's as good as Lucas.
%%* FairCop
* GadgeteerGenius: The technological genius of the group.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: In "Force from the Future", during a split-second frame.
* {{Keet}}: At some points.
* TheKlutz, sometimes to the point of being a [[CuteClumsyGirl Cute Clumsy Alien Boy]], as noted above.
* InnocentAliens: Trip is very, very trusting of others, "Short-Circuited" being the prime example. Justified, as, according to Katie, "all Xybrians are trusting".
* MeaningfulName: Because most [[TheKlutz clumsy people]] are experts on the art of '''trip'''ping.
* NiceGuy: He was the first to take a liking to Wes and was the only one who helped him convince Jen to give him the morpher.
* NiceHat: Justified because...
-->'''Wes:''' ''(right after placing the hat on Trip's head)'' I donít know if the public is quite ready for a Xybrian yet.
* NinjaPirateRobotZombie: Let's just say he's everything LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya would want in a guy, with the addition of being a cop.
* OnlyOneName: {{Fanon}} usually gives Trip's last name as "Regis", but Saban's official website doesn't give him a last name, much like other HumanAliens in the franchise.
* PuppyDogEyes: Just to up the Moe factor.
* PsychicPowers: Due to his Xybrian DNA.
* RubberForeheadAlien: He looks pretty human, save a forehead crystal and oddly colored hair.
* TheSmartGuy / MrFixit: He works on Circuit or there tech if something is wrong.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Green Hair]]: Justified by the above-mentioned RubberForeheadAlien-ness.

!![[color:darkred:Eric Myers / Quantum Ranger]] | [-(Actor: Dan Southworth)-]
* AloofAlly: Ally is stretching it, at least at first.
%%* BreakoutCharacter
* TheCaptain: Of the Silver Guardians.
* {{Determinator}}: Eric's worked so hard to get his life out of the gutter and make something of himself. [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]] in that it's made him more than a bit resentful.
* DarkAndTroubledPast / BrokenAce: He lived an opposite life to Wes, despite Wes openly wanting to hang out with him. Also his FreudianExcuse for his attitude towards the other Rangers.
** TheResenter: So much it hurts. [[spoiler: He gets better]].
%%* FairCop
* FriendlessBackground: Presumably by choice. While Eric was depicted as being an outcast amongst the snobby rich kids of his prep school, Wes honestly seems to try his best to be nice to Eric, and is subsequently pushed away.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Despite everything, Eric does care for people's safety and was friends with a little girl where he used to live.
* JerkassFacade: Trip puts it best: "He acts mean to hide that he's lonely."
* LawOfChromaticSuperiority: He also gets a SuperMode. And he gets to join Wes and eight other Red Rangers on a special mission.
* MoralityPet: He keeps adorable little birds and befriends a little girl who he gives said adorable little birds to take care of near the finale.
%%* PerpetualFrowner
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Wes' red.
* TheRival: To Wes.
%%* RollerbladeGood
* SarcasticClapping: Upon becoming the Quantum Ranger for the first time. With his ''gun'', no less.
* ShipTease / CrossoverShip: With [[Series/PowerRangersWildForce Taylor]].
* SixthRanger: Has the gear for it, but subverted as he never actually joins the team.
%%* TallDarkAndSnarky
* YouLookFamiliar: Most of his scenes, particularly his debut as the Quantum Ranger, were easy to splice up with the Sentai footage due to how similar Eric and Naoto look.

'''Their Friends'''

!!Circuit | [-(Voice actress: Brianne Siddall)-]
* RobotBuddy: Just like [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Alpha]].
* TeamPet / TheOwlKnowingOne: He's a robotic owl.

!!Captain Logan | [-(Actor: Roy Werner)-]
* BigGood: Who the four future Rangers answer to.
* TheCaptain: Of Time Force
* MissionControl: He provides the Rangers with intel from the future.

!!Mr. A. Collins | [-(Actor: Edward Albert)-]
%%* CoolOldGuy
* NoNameGiven: No first name, at least. We only know it starts with an A.
%%* NonActionGuy
* ParentsKnowTheirChildren: He effortlessly identifies his partially - masked son.
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney: At first.
* SoProudOfYou: In the finale.

!!Alex | [-(Actor: Jason Faunt)-]
* AdaptationalHeroism: [[spoiler: His ''Timeranger'' counterpart turned out to be the Big Bad. Alex, however, is not.]]
%%* BigGood
* ByTheBookCop: Does this too much for his own good, causing the other Rangers to plead with him to give his morpher back to Wes.
%%* CoolShades
%%* FairCop
* IdenticalGrandson: It's implied Wes is his ancestor.
%%* ManInWhite
* OnlyOneName: Like Trip above, some {{fanon}} give him the last name of "Drake."
* RomanticFalseLead: To Jen, but not in the first episode.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: [[spoiler:Ryuya deserved to die. Alex does not]].
* TookALevelInJerkass: Well, more like revealing that he was always more of a {{Jerkass}} than he let on.
%%* TyrantTakesTheHelm

'''Their Enemies'''

!!Ransik | [-(Actor: Vernon Wells)-]
* TheAtoner: In "Reinforcements from the Future".
%%* AxCrazy
* BadWithTheBone: He ''pulls his bones out of his body'' and uses them as swords. [[spoiler: It was later revealed he was given this power by some Orgs in PowerRangersWildForce in exchange for them copying his mutant DNA to become Mut-Orgs.]]
* {{Badass}}: Easily one of the most powerful main villains in a PowerRangers series. He even curb-stomped the entire team before surrendering.
%%* BadassBeard [[BeardOfEvil Of Evil]]
* BigBad: For this series.
* DeadpanSnarker: At times.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: In spite of everything, Ransik is actually a fairly attentive and loving parent. This is a factor in his HeelFaceTurn.
%%* EvilSoundsDeep
%%* GeniusBruiser
* GracefulLoser: If he hadn't [[spoiler: accidentally blasted Nadira]], he would've beaten the Rangers!
* HeelFaceTurn: In "The End of Time"; notably one of the few seasons in which the BigBad isn't killed or forcibly turned good.
* HeelRealization: In the GrandFinale, after [[spoiler: nearly killing his daughter in a rage.]]
* HellBentForLeather: Most of his outfit is black leather.
* HumansAreBastards: According to him, though to be fair he's really in no position to judge.
* KarmaHoudini: After everything he did and tried to do there's no arguing he became this at the end.
* KickTheMoralityPet: Towards his daughter, no less. Which shocks him into [[spoiler: turning himself in]].
%%* TheJuggernaut
%%* LargeAndInCharge
* LargeHam: Practically the reason Vernon Wells took the role.
* LoveRedeems: His love for his daughter is ultimately what causes [[spoiler:his HeelFaceTurn and redeems him.]]
%%* MisanthropeSupreme
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: After [[spoiler:severely wounding his daughter]] in the FinalBattle.
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: Terminally ill, mutant criminal genius from the future ([[RuleOfCool who can pull swords out of his entire body.]]) The ''Wild Force'' teamup episode shows that he's got magic as well.
* OrcusOnHisThrone: Subverted, he follows the traditional MonsterOfTheWeek formula of Power Rangers villains, but he isn't afraid to get his hands dirty,
%%* RedemptionEarnsLife
* SpikesOfVillainy: Most of his armored parts have spikes. They're gone next season, indicating he's not evil anymore.
* TwoFaced: [[spoiler:Until he faced the Mut-Orgs in ''Series/PowerRangersWildForce'']].
* UngratefulBastard: [[spoiler:Considering that Frax was kind to him and saved his life purely out of the goodness of his heart when Ransik was shunned by most, it was really a dick move to steal all the serum and leave him to die]].
%%* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds

!!Nadira | [-(Actress: Kate Sheldon)-]
* BareYourMidriff: Her standard outfit.
* TheBaroness: She fits the sexpot's look, but that's about it.

* DaddysLittleVillain: Until she reformed.
%%* DarkChick
%%* DarkMagicalGirl
* DatingCatwoman: With Lucas in "Nadira's Dream Date".
* TheFashionista: Nadira is fascinated by 21th century fashion, and often takes Cyclobots into the city to steal clothing and jewelry.
* FemmeFatalons: She can grow her nails for combat.
* FriendToAllChildren: After witnessing the birth of a child in "End of Time Pt.1", she spends time in the park playing with children. Compare how in an earlier episode she had children kidnapped and was okay with letting them get killed for money, to "Reinforcements From The Future" where [[spoiler:she's happily working with children in a day care]].
* HeelFaceTurn: Having had to deliver a PregnantHostage helped her case.
* LaughablyEvil: Did ''anyone'' ever take her seriously when she was a villain?
* MaternallyChallenged: In "The End of Time". Averted [[spoiler:in "Reinforcements from the Future" from ''[[Series/PowerRangersWildForce Wild Force]]'', where, back in the 31st century, she works at a day care]].
* MissingMom: Her mom is nowhere to be seen.
* MoralityPet: For Ransik
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: In "The End of Time, Part III". [[spoiler:Well, almost; it's actually a near-death]].
* RedemptionEarnsLife: In "Reinforcements from the Future" from ''[[Series/PowerRangersWildForce Wild Force]]''.
* WomanInWhite: Her standard outfit.

!!Frax[[spoiler:/Dr. Ferix]] | [-(Voice actor: Eddie Frierson)-]
* BadassBookworm: The few times he fights the Rangers head on, he easily defeats them, like just before the finale.
* ChekhovsGunman[=/=]ChekhovsMIA: He was the scientist who helped Ransik in his flashback.
* EvilGenius: With a fondness for robots, and the odd GiantMecha.
* TheFarmerAndTheViper: Ransik was rescued and given life-saving medical attention by Dr. Ferricks. He responds to this kindness by [[UngratefulBastard setting the doctor's lab on fire and leaving him to die]]. This makes things rather awkward for the series' later attempts to sell him as a Magneto-esque Anti-Villain.
* HeelFaceDoorSlam: Via being [[spoiler: reprogrammed and effectively wiping out the last traces of the person he used to be right when he sees hope for the possibility of ending the cycle of hatred]].
* MisanthropeSupreme: Being nearly killed for helping someone will do that to you. He refuses to believe Mutants are anything but evil bastards. And [[HopeSpot just minutes after he realises there might be hope, Ransik has him reprogrammed]].
%%* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished
* PetTheDog: [[spoiler:Before becoming Frax, he was the only human to be sympathetic to Ransik. Unfortunately, Ransik didn't return the favor]].
* RoboSpeak: After Ransik has him "reprogrammed".
* TheStarscream: At first he starts sending the most dangerous mutants behind Ransik's back to steal the credit of destroying the Rangers. Then he breaks off and goes on his own.
* TragicVillain: Once you learn his backstory.
* WasOnceAMan: Used to be one of the most brilliant and kindest scientists in the future.
* WeCanRebuildHim: His backstory.

!!Gluto | [-(Voice actor: Creator/NeilKaplan)-]
%%* TheBrute
* DemotedToExtra: Don Dorunero was Timeranger's BigBad, Gluto is little more than comic relief.
%%* TheDragon
%%* DumbMuscle
%%* FatBastard
* HopelessSuitor: He has a crush on Nadira, but she doesn't have feelings for him.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: In the finale, he freezes himself rather than take part.
