Our Heroes

Conner McKnight / Red Tyranno Ranger | (Actor: James Napier)

Dude. "Computer club"?

Ethan James / Blue Tricera Ranger | (Actor: Kevin Duhaney)

An invisible science teacher. That is so totally graphic novel!

Kira Ford / Yellow Ptera Ranger | (Actress: Emma Lahana)

Did you just call me 'babe'? Did he just call me 'babe'?

Dr. Tommy Oliver / Black Brachio Ranger | (Actor: Jason David Frank)

Note: See also the character sheets for Mighty Morphin, Zeo, and Turbo.

I may be old, but I can still pull it off.

Trent Fernandez-Mercer / White Drago Ranger | (Actor: Jeffrey Parazzo)

I know I've got a lot to make up for, but I promise - this time, I won't let you down.

Others

Hayley Ziktor | (Actress: Ismay Johnston)

Anton Mercer | (Actor: Latham Gaines)

  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: At first.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: He used to work with Tommy on combining dino DNA with technology. The lab and island that they worked on was destroyed, but both Anton and Tommy survived. Anton, along with Tommy, resurface at Reefside. He was not pleased at all to see Tommy had survived.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Enemy WithinEnemy Without: With Mesogog
  • Fantasy-Forbidding Father / Follow in My Footsteps: A point of contention between Dr. Mercer and Trent, as Mercer wants to groom Trent for the business world and thinks his drawing hobby and afterschool job at Hayley's are beneath him. In Mercer's defense, some of his lines suggest that he's preparing Trent to handle being on his own in case he loses his internal battle with Mesogog. In the finale, after he is freed from Mesogog's influence, he is much more supporting towards Trent's hobbies.
  • For Science!
  • Jerkass: At first, especially towards Trent and Tommy, because he tries to keep the fact that he is Mesogog from them.
    • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Once it's revealed what happened to him, he warms up toward Trent at exactly the same time that Trent discovers his secret, because he allows himself to let down his guard because he no longer has a secret to keep from him.
  • It's All My Fault: Blames himself for the accident that turned him into Mesogog.
  • Manipulative Bastard: At first.
  • No Sense of Personal Space: Especially when interrogating Tommy
  • Old Friend: The not-brainwashed Elsa has an unspecified past with Anton, who asks her for a dance in the last episode. They have some Ship Tease as well.
  • Papa Wolf: Towards Trent.
  • Professor Guinea Pig: He accidentally turned himself into Mesagog after experimenting a potion on himself.

Devin del Valle & Cassidy Cornell | (Actors: Tom Hern and Katrina Devine)

Enemies

Mesogog/ Anton Mercer | (Actor: Latham Gaines)

Elsa/Principal Randall | (Actress: Miriama Smith)

  • Badass Adorable: A dark version.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: When she loses her powers, she looks much more human and acts as if emerging from a daze. She later claims to have been under Mesogog's control, and the Mesogog-free Anton is happy to see her.
  • Clark Kenting: Lampshaded; when her cover is blown, Tommy notices he should have guessed sooner and Ethan references the trope namer.
  • Dark Action Girl
  • Evil Teacher
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: A black, stitched scar runs from her bottom lip to her chin. Ironically, it acts quite a bit like a 'good' scar (vanishing when she transforms, not detracting from her looks, etc.), but marks her as a villain at the same time.
  • Redemption Demotion: Loses all her action abilities when she turns good.
  • Meaningful Name: Her first name, Elsa, is both a typical Northern-Europe name (or a shortening of 'Elizabeth'), but also the name of the heroine of one of Wagner's operas, who loves a man she cannot ever see the face of.
  • Old Friend: The 'real' Elsa has an unspecified past with Anton, who asks her for a dance in the last episode.
  • Sycophantic Servant

Zeltrax | (Voice actor: James Gaylyn)
