Characters / Power Rangers in Space

Our Heroes

Andros / Red Space Ranger | (Actor: Christopher Khayman Lee)

I will never stop searching.
  • Badass Boast: "If you're on the side of evil, say Goodbye!"
  • Character Tic: He keeps his hair untied and often unknowingly tucks a strand behind ear.
  • Establishing Character Moment: His first appearance in the show establishes that he's no rookie after he infiltrates the villains with a cloak and fights his way through them when discovered.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: In the chapter titled "Red with Envy", where Andros reacts this way to Zhane (as he perceives it) when he spends time with Ashley. He gets better, after clarifying the misunderstanding.
  • Human Alien: He's not from Earth.
  • I Work Alone: He isn't too happy to see the old guard. He dumps them on the nearest planet, and leaves.
  • Iconic Outfit: His cloak made such an impact, he wears it in both his team-up appearances.
  • Ineffectual Loner: At first.
  • In the Hood: The above mentioned cloak.
  • Law of Chromatic Superiority: See Super Mode below.
  • The Leader: To the Rangers.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Not all the time, but when he's upset enough he tends to throw strategy out the window. TJ calls him out on this.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: Probably among the most handsome Red Rangers to date.
  • Meaningful Name: Andros means "man", and in many ways, he's the most human of the Space Rangers, despite being an alien.
  • Memento MacGuffin: His locket.
  • Mind over Matter: He can move things with his mind. It only works for small objects though, and as such it's more of a parlor trick than something that can be used in a fight.
  • Multicolored Hair: His signature brown Legolas-like hair and with its skunk stripes.
  • My Sister Is Off-Limits!: He is not happy to hear that Zhane had dated Karone.
  • Official Couple: With Ashley.
  • Only One Name: His last name is unknown.
  • Psychic Powers: Has the power of telekinesis. He rarely uses it, though. Justified since it takes a lot of focus to use (something people generally don't have the luxury of in a fight) and he can only lift small objects. It's really more of a parlor trick than fighting ability. Andros implies that this ability isn't specific to natives of KO-35 and could be taught to the other rangers given enough time.
  • Pretty Boy: Ashley certainly though so.
  • Rookie Red Ranger: Inverted - he's the most experienced member of the core team, both as a Ranger and a space traveler. "You're planetary Rangers, from Earth. What do you know about space?"
  • Sarcasm-Blind
    Adelle: It's a surfboard. What planet are you from?
    Andros: KO-35. You know of it?
    Adelle: Smart aleck.
    Andros: Aleck? No, I'm Andros.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Sensitive Guy to Zhane's Manly Man.
  • Shoot the Dog: Forced to do this at the end of the series. In order to save the universe, he has to kill Zordon.
  • Socially-Awkward Hero: He's introduced infiltrating and escaping a gathering of every major villain with barely a scratch. Asking out a girl he likes, on the other hand...
  • Super Mode: Was the first Red Ranger to get a Battlizer, as seen in "Mission to Secret City".
  • This Is a Drill: Has the Spiral Saber as his main weapon.

Carlos Vallerte / Black Space Ranger | (Actor: Roger Velasco)

Plus, [the Megatank] looks cool, too!

  • The Beard: Was asked by Ashley to pretend to be her boyfriend to get her grandmother off her back in "Grandma Matchmaker".
  • Destructive Savior: He once got Cassie hurt and almost quit being a Ranger for it.
  • The Everyman: Carried over from Turbo.
  • Gentle Giant: He's easily the most muscular of the guys, but he's also mellowed significantly since his debut in Turbo.
  • Heroic B.S.O.D.: Had one in "Always a Chance" after accidentally injuring Cassie when fighting Lizwizard. It took Adam Park morphing into the Black Power Ranger with a heavily battle-damaged Power Morpher to snap Carlos out of his self-doubt.
  • Hot-Blooded: Not as much as he was n Turbo, but still has his moments.

T.J. Johnson / Blue Space Ranger | (Actor: Selwyn Ward)

Note: This section only applies to tropes featured in In Space. For the rest, see the character sheet for Power Rangers Turbo.

He gets it, alright. He just doesn't accept it.

Ashley Hammond / Yellow Space Ranger | (Actress: Tracy Lynn Cruz)

Note: This section only applies to tropes featured in In Space. For the rest, see the character sheet for Power Rangers Turbo.

Have you ever been to Earth before? Trust me, you're gonna love it there. There's beaches, music, there's the mall and everything!

Cassie Chan / Pink Space Ranger | (Actress: Patricia Ja Lee)

Note: This section only applies to tropes featured in In Space. For the rest, see the character sheet for Power Rangers Turbo.

What affects one of us, affects all of us.

Zhane / Silver Space Ranger | (Actor: Justin Nimmo)

Their Friends

The Phantom Ranger | (Voice actor: Alex Dodd)

  • Ship Tease: With Cassie, continuing from Turbo: at the end of his last message to the Rangers.
    "I'll be alright, Cassie. Please - don't forget me."
  • The Unreveal: Perhaps the biggest unanswered question in the entire PR metaseries. Who is he? It's likely the suit is his real body.

Zordon | (Actor: Bob Manahan)

  • Advertised Extra: Despite being shown in the credits, and the search for him being one of the Ranger's main goals, he's only in four episodes out of forty-three, and of those four, one is the season opening, and two are the finale.
  • Back for the Dead / Heroic Sacrifice: He told Andros to destroy him to release the energy wave that destroy most evil and purify some like Rita, Lord Zedd, and Divatox.
  • I Cannot Self-Terminate: Not due to programming, magical rules, or honor codes, but because of a lack of limbs.
  • Obi-Wan Moment: During aforementioned Heroic Sacrifice above.
  • Oracular Head: As he's no longer bound in the time warp, he's presumably become the floating head image for real.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: He escaped the time warp he was sealed in 10,000 years ago - but now he's sealed in the communications tube he was using to contact people from the time warp.

Alpha 6 | (Voice actress: Wendee Lee)

  • Hand Wave: He gets a new voice because his old one was damaged by the explosion at the end of Turbo.
  • Robot Buddy: Carried over from Turbo.

Adelle Ferguson | (Actress: Aloma Wright)

Bulk & Skull | (Actors: Paul Schrier and Jason Narvy)

Professor Phenomenus | (Actor: Jack Banning)

  • All There in the Script: The scripts say that his first name is "Elliott".
  • Catch Phrase: He sees what he thinks is evidence of aliens. Bulk or Skull point out that it's something mundane. He replies "Perhaps to the untrained eye!"
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Sees aliens everywhere, despite a lack of evidence, and never manages to find them. Quite an accomplishment, given how hard it is to go for a walk in Angel Grove without tripping over alien activity.
  • The Cuckoolander Was Right: He's consistently too late by about an episode or so in terms of locating alien activity, but it was there.

Their Enemies

Dark Specter | (Voice actor: T.J. Rotolo)

Astronema / Karone | (Actress: Melody Perkins)

Note: See also the character sheet for Power Rangers Lost Galaxy.

That...was impressive. Destroy them!

  • '80s Hair: Her wigs can get pretty voluminous.
  • And I Must Scream: The gist of what the cybernetics do to her. Her actual persona is supressed, in favour of the programming of the cybernetics.
  • Bad Boss: She heaps a ton of abuse on Elgar. Of course, Elgar really deserves it. However, she can be pretty nasty to everyone else around her, too. Even Ecliptor isn't necessarily safe.
  • The Baroness: Sexpot variety. After her brainwashing, she becomes the Rosa Klebb variety.
  • Hell-Bent for Leather: Her later outfit.
  • Human Alien: She's also from KO-35.
  • Large Ham: Jeminy Christmas...
    • Evil Is Hammy: Mostly keeps it in check after her Heel–Face Turn. When she's brainwashed into being evil again, she goes right back to being a ham..
    • Cold Ham: After her brainwashing, instead of the typical shouting, she's more eerily calm.
  • Long-Lost Relative: She is Andros' long-lost sister. Though neither of them finds out until mid-season.
  • Make Up Is Evil: Played with a bit. One of the first things she does after her Heel–Face Turn is ditch her wig(s) and most of her makeup. The rangers certainly think it's an improvement.
  • Memento MacGuffin: Her locket.
  • Make My Monster Grow
  • Ms. Fanservice: For starters she's gorgeous, she has a leather outfit, is equal parts flirty and intimidating, often does a Sexy Walk and she's The Baroness
  • Only One Name: Either her villainess name or her true name, it's only one name.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: She attempts to disguise herself as Ashley in one episode, and while she does have the voice down, she doesn't do anything to change her mannerisms at all, and when her minions "attack" her and Cassie, all Astronema does is glower and slap at them.
  • Sci-Fi Bob Haircut: During her attempted infiltration of the Dark Fortress, she ditches her larges wigs for one of these, which remains her haircut for the rest of the series.
  • Senseless Sacrifice: After her Heel–Face Turn, Dark Specter threatens to destroy Earth's population with a giant asteroid unless the Rangers turn her over. She risks attempting to infiltrate his ship to stop him and gets captured (and subsequently brainwashed). Not only does Dark Specter not bother to stop the asteroid after getting her back, but the Rangers manage to do so themselves, making her whole infiltration attempt completely unnecessary.
  • Shock and Awe: She has the ability to shoot purple lightning from her fingers.
  • Shoulders of Doom: When going in battle, she tends to don some large shoulder-pads.
  • The Starscream: After being brainwashed by the Dark Specter. (Clearly, that worked only too well. Using the Psycho Rangers had two purposes: fighting the true Rangers (obviously) and weakening the Dark Specter. She intentionally connected their powers to his, hoping that their frequent battles with the Rangers would weaken him enough for her to destroy him and usurp his position as leader of the alliance. (Unfortunately for Astronema, the Psycho Rangers were impatient and unwilling to follow her plans, which led to them being defeated before this plan could succeed.)
  • Unwilling Roboticisation: After her Heel–Face Turn, Darkonda recaptures her and has cybernetic-implants forcefully grafted onto her, to erase all traces of goodness. It works a little too well.
  • Woman Scorned: Zhane learns never to stand up a woman who can shoot lightning at you, whether intentionally or not.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair And purple, and blonde, and black, and brown, and red...

Ecliptor | (Voice actor: Lex Lang)

  • Evil Versus Evil: He and Darkonda eventually start trying to kill one another, up until Darkonda forcibly reprograms him.
  • Evil Virtues: Loyalty for Astronema.
  • Eye Beams: In varieties, too!
  • Fusion Dance: With Darkonda as Darkliptor in "T.J.'s Identity Crisis" and "Astronema Thinks Twice". It's entirely unwilling on his part, and he can override it with enough discipline.
  • Light Is Not Good: Most of his powers seem to be based around holo-projection and concentrated light blasts.
  • Noble Demon: Starts the trend that continues with Villamax, Diabolico, Zen-Aku and Deker
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Whenever Andros is part of the equation.
  • Papa Wolf: raised Astronema from age five and he seems to be the only one she always seems to care about (usually, at any rate).

Darkonda | (Voice actor: Steve Kramer)

  • Ax-Crazy: All five of them, but Psycho Blue not only fights with an actual axe, he nearly kills T.J. in cold blood doing it.
  • Back from the Dead: They ran their souls through Astronema's people-into-data machine, reconstituting their bodies.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: When they introduce themselves, Psycho Pink finishes off their onslaught of Pre-Asskicking One Liners by simply announcing the fact that the Psychos are evil. Adding more to this scene is the fact that, unlike the previous villain's announcing themselves as evil, it's actually truly menacing here.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: Psycho Yellow. Not only does she team up with Psycho Pink to drain the Rangers of their power first (and get all the credit from Astronema), she then callously abandons Pink when things go all pear-shaped, resulting in Pink's death.
  • Crippling Overspecialization: The Rangers realize that the Psychos only absorbed fighting styles from their counterparts, so an Opponent Switch gives them a huge advantage... at first. And when the Psychos nullified the Opponent Switch, the Rangers (minus Zhane) decided to wear the same color. (blue)
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: When they brag about how much better they are than the Rangers, it's true, especially in the early appearances. Psycho Red has it the worst, though.
  • Five-Bad Band:
  • Giant Space Flea from Nowhere: Unlike their Megaranger counterparts, there's no explanation where they came from.
  • Ghostly Chill: When the ghost of Psycho Pink passes through her, Cassie suddenly feels very cold.
  • Gone Horribly Right: Astronema wanted to create monsters that would hunt down and destroy the Power Rangers. Unfortunately for her Evil Plan, nothing can stop them from trying to do it.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Psycho Pink, mostly because Psycho Yellow keeps trying to screw her over.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Zhane has been abducted, but the others can't save him without morphing and alerting the Psychos to their location. So they plant a recording device in their vehicle and send it off on auto-pilot. When the Rangers break through the shield surrounding Zhane's location, the Psychos Flash Step in front of them, and Red says something to the effect of "Did you think that would fool us?" Of course, they really did fall for it.
  • Mind Rape: The Psychos learn everything about the Rangers' fighting styles in this way.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain: If it weren't for their obsession with fighting the Rangers, the Rangers would still be data cards and Astronema would have won.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: Not that any of them were actually harmless, per se, but Psycho Pink was killed off pretty early in their debut story arc (mostly because Psycho Yellow stabbed her in the back). When the Psychos returned for the Galaxy Rangers teamup, not only did she SURVIVE their team attack, but was able to procure an energy-sucking sword that ended up killing the Pink Galaxy Ranger. Until the end of the season, at least.
  • One-Winged Angel: They don't have mecha, so they turn into giant monsters instead.
  • The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: So much that they lurked around as ghosts so that they could fight the Rangers again.
  • Only Sane Man: Psycho Black, though "sane" is a relative term. He was the only one that expressed concern over the consequences of not doing as Astronema commanded.
  • Shock and Awe: Green lightning. One might even call them Psycho Electros.
  • Super Speed: Bordering on Flash Step in close quarters.
  • Too Dumb to Live: If no one else, Psycho Red who throws Psycho Yellow out of the Mega Voyager when she has full control of it, just because he wanted to destroy everything and do things his way instead of Astronema's way. The Psycho Rangers would have won had he not let his ego get the better of him.
  • Trope Namer: For the Psycho Rangers trope.
  • Weapon of Choice: The same as the Rangers, of course (with the exception of Psycho Pink, whose bow was nothing like Cassie's Satellite Stunner:)
  • Xanatos Gambit: Astronema linked the Psycho Rangers' energy into Dark Specter, so that as long as they exist, they drain his energy. Whether the Rangers or Dark Specter died first, she won.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Most of them have one except Black, but Psycho Red has the biggest one, due to his The Only One Allowed to Defeat You mentality.
