Characters: Power Rangers Jungle Fury

Our Heroes

Casey Rhodes / Jungle Fury Red Ranger | (Actor: Jason Smith)

My spirit doesn't make me stronger. I make my spirit stronger.

  • Badass Boast: See the above quote.
  • The Hero: Although he rarely, if ever takes on the dominant role of leader, and even then under protest.
  • Law of Chromatic Superiority: Averted - despite getting a Cool Bike only for himself, he's the first Red Ranger in since In Space (For those not keeping track, that was ten seasons prior) to not get a Super Mode (Unless you count the armor he wears whilst riding said bike). He gains a second master last and earns his Master stripes later than Lily and Theo.
  • The McCoy: Being the least experienced of the team, he's constantly worrying about not being able to catch up. This makes him very impulsive and worries when something goes wrong.
  • Panthera Awesome: Possesses the Tiger spirit.
  • Rookie Red Ranger: Possibly a deconstruction, as he constantly worries about not being able to catch up to Theo and Lily. This, not lack of ability is what holds him back until he learns to let got of it.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In the finale, he takes down a crowd of Mooks. While unmorphed. And proceeds to go one-on-one with the Big Bad without dying horribly. Throughout the season in general, Casey becomes more sure of himself and, as a result, more powerful.
  • Warrior Therapist: How he breaks Jarrod free of Dai Shi in the finale. It works.
  • Weapon of Choice:

Lily Chilman / Jungle Fury Yellow Ranger | (Actress: Anna Hutchison)

I'm the Ranger you're gonna wish you'd never met!

  • The Chick: The sole girl, though not lacking in power herself.
  • Epic Flail: Jungle Mace
  • The Heart: The kindest and most forgiving of all the rangers.
  • The Kirk: Whereas Theo is logical and disciplined, and Casey is more impulsive, Lily is the mediator between them, helping to reign them both in and stay on task.
  • No Indoor Voice: Like Jason before her, once she morphs, she screams every single word. Rangerboard has affectonately dubbed it her "Rape voice."
  • Panthera Awesome: Possesses the Cheetah spirit.
  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: Her "Cheetah Jabs" technique.

Theo Martin / Jungle Fury Blue Ranger | (Actor: Aljin Abella)

My mind is a well-oiled machine. It can juggle two jobs, read a book and save the world - all before the lunch rush.

Robert "R.J." James / Jungle Fury Wolf Ranger | (Actor: David de Lautour)

Remember, guys! The enemy is merciless. And just as graceful as - (falls over, springs back up) Me!

  • Bare-Fisted Monk: Aside from shooting Ki Attacks from his morpher, he is the only Jungle Fury Ranger who does not possess a secondary weapon.
  • Big Eater: Especially when it comes to pizza.
  • The Big Guy: His fighting style is almost entirely hand-to-hand, and he's one of the most experienced fighters.
  • Composite Character: of Gekiranger's Gou (Geki Violet) and Sha-Fu, even though the latter's counterpart is Master Mao - but since Mao dies in the first episode many of Sha-Fu's early stuff gets shifted to R.J.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: A pizza-loving hippie who's also a martial arts master and superhero.
  • Eccentric Mentor: You can't even tell he's a martial arts master until he revealed it in his introduction.
  • Erudite Stoner
    "I always like to leave my enemies with a...confusing thought."
    "Theo, I'm ignoring your negative energy."
  • Spiritual Antithesis: To Tommy in Dino Thunder. Both juggle day jobs that involve being the rangers' superior, both become rangers after three and both are the most experienced fighters. However, while Tommy was a former ranger and was very direct and serious from years of being a Power Ranger and insisted in training on martial arts, RJ is more casual and laid back and prefers to use the mundane to show how they are effective training methods.
  • Team Dad: For the Rangers.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Pizza. He loves it so much he opened his own shop just to have an endless supply.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Initially has this relationship with Master Finn, though they reconnect over the course of the season.
  • Wolf Man: Periodically turns into a werewolf after Dai Shi injures his Wolf spirit until it is healed through Fran's friendship. He briefly reverts to his form while influenced by an evil spirit.

Dominic "Dom" Hargan / Jungle Fury Rhino Ranger | (Actor: Nikolai Nikolaeff)

Theo: That's your very, very safe place. Under [a seat cushion] with old french fries and dead cockroaches?
Dom: Genius, huh? No-one's gonna put their hands down there.

Their Friends

Fran | (Actor: Sarah Thomson)

  • Adorkable: She's very excited when it comes to books, pizza and her crush on Dominic.
  • Ascended Fangirl: In a sense. She loved the pizza place so much that she was thrilled to be offered a job there.
  • Badass Normal: Has no powers, and arguably gets some of the best moments in the season regardless.
  • Butt Monkey: Though she does stand up for herself at times.
  • The Heart: Particularly to RJ and Dom.
  • Meganekko: She wears glasses in most of her appearances.
  • Morality Chain: She actively invokes this when RJ becomes a werewolf, it's a key factor in his eventual cure.
  • Motor Mouth:
    Everyone: Breathe, Fran.
  • Secret Keeper: Eventually becomes one for the Rangers.
  • Take Up My Sword: A variant. In an episode where Lily is acting like a Jerkass thanks to the Monster of The Week, Fran snaps her out of it by threatening to take her morpher and help the Rangers. She only doesn't do it because the resulting brawl between her and Lily causes said snap-out.
  • Will They or Won't They?: With Dominic.

Their Enemies

Jarrod/Dai Shi | (Actor: Bede Skinner; Geoff Dolan voices Dai Shi once he and Jarrod are separated)

  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: As Jarrod.
  • Big Bad: Dai Shi.
  • Composite Character: Of Rio and Long. Specifially, Jarrod is Rio and Dai Shi is Long.
  • Death by Adaptation/Spared By Adaptation: Dai Shi is the former, Jarrod is the latter. Dai Shi's Gekiranger counterpart Long had Complete Immortality and couldn't die while Dai Shi is ultimately killed off and Jarrod's Gekiranger counterpart Rio died while Jarrod lives.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: In the finale, Jarrod, Dai Shi's former vessel, does this with his true form.
  • Demonic Possession: Dai Shi possesses Jarrod in the first episode and throughout the episode until the finale.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Probably has the most qualities of one out of any Power Rangers villain besides Dark Specter. He's less an entity and more a demonic spirit for most of the series with immense power, even being able to rip open a portal to the afterlife to revive his minions once he regained enough of his true strength, and his true form is a gigantic eight headed dragon that's not even close to humanoid. In addition, we never find out exactly what he is or where he came from.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: When Dai Shi is possessing Jarrod, his voice is much deeper. It's restored to normal when the two separate or when Jarrod isn't under Dai Shi's control.
  • Expy: Johnny, what are you doing on Power Rangers? Also, look at him in an average episode and say he's not channelling teen Anakin Skywalker
  • Four Is Death: Lampshaded in that his name is Japanese.
  • Love Redeems (Minion Shipping): With Camille.
  • One-Winged Angel: Dai Shi assumes his true form, which is that of an eight-headed dragon, in the finale.]]
  • Our Dragons Are Different: Dai Shi's true form is an eight-headed dragon, reminiscent of Orochi.
  • Our Gryphons Are Different: His Phantom Beast King form.
  • Meaningful Echo: In the finale, he's told that it's never too late to start over to redeem himself when other characters attempted to convince him to join them and fight Dai Shi. Later after Dai Shi is destroyed, Jarrod and Camille become martial arts student again under Casey's teaching, a young boy asks them whether they're already too old to become a student. Jarrod calmly answer: "It's never too late to start over."
  • Names to Run Away From Really Fast: Dai Shi can be translated as 'Great Death'.
  • Panthera Awesome: Jarrod's animal spirit. "Spirit of the mighty Lion!"
  • Parental Abandonment: During his childhood, his parents weren't around much, and he had to stay with a neighbor most of the time.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Dai Shi has been stuck in an (unlocked!) box for 10,000 years. The box was kept by a secret order, but opened when a disgruntled student (Jarrod) barged in and attacked the order's master, accidentally knocking the box out of his hands. Unusually, however, Dai Shi is significantly weaker than he was, and has to struggle to regain his powers before the Rangers become strong enough to destroy him.
  • You Have Failed Me: He strips Whiger of his Rinzin, title, and rank and banishes him from his temple as punishment for his defeat by the hands of the Jungle Master Stampede Formation.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: He allows the Rangers to destroy Carnisoar and Grizzaka and the Phantom Beast Generals to destroy Jellica because they are no longer needed by him now that he has learned to harness his hatred and deceit thanks to Carnisoar and Jellica and has learned Zocato on his own.

Camille | (Actor: Holly Shanahan)

Carnisoar | (Voice actor: Cameron Rhodes)

Jellica | (Voice actress: Elisabeth Easther)

  • Everything's Squishier with Cephalopods
  • Evil Mentor: First to Camille, then to Dai Shi.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Freed the Phantom Beast Generals to defeat Dai Shi and take over, only for them to turn on her.
  • Hypocrite: Calls Dai Shi a traitor for going to the Rhino Nexus for power to destroy Grizzaka, despite that she and Carnisoar betrayed him out of fear of Grizzaka.
  • Oh, Crap: She gets one when the Phantom Beast Generals turn against her, just before destroying her.

Grizzaka

  • Bears Are Bad News: As one might infer from his name, he's represented by the grizzly bear.
  • Smug Super: His arrogance about his immense power and his claims to be completely invincible are good reasons why he counts as one.
  • The Starscream: Naturally, he blames Dai Shi for losing the war 10,000 years ago and hates humans even more. This makes perfect sense as, after being revived by Camille, he, upon arriving at Dai Shi's temple, is surprised to see that Dai Shi is now using the human Jarrod as a vessel. Jarrod wants Grizzaka to teach him Zocato, but, naturally, Grizzaka isn't too thrilled about that and simply refuses to take orders from any human. Guess what he does next?
    • Interestingly, out of all the Starscreams in the Power Rangers series, he is one of the few who actually succeed in overthrowing the Big Bad, and after his success, he becomes the ruler of the other evil forces until Dai Shi returns and takes back his throne.
  • This Cannot Be!: He screams this after the rangers destroy him with the Jungle Master Stampede Formation.
  • This Is Unforgivable!: Before his huge battle with the Rangers, he declares to them, "You destroyed all my warriors, my royal guards, and the great Overlord Carnisoar. Finally, I shall destroy you!"
  • Unstoppable Rage: Even Dai Shi and the other villains are wary of pissing him off.
  • We Meet Again: He says this verbatim to the Rangers before their huge fight in his last episode appearance before the finale.
  • Wolverine Claws: His bare claws.

Scorch | (Voice actor: Mark Wright)

Snapper | (Voice actor: Richard Simpson)

Whiger | (Voice actor: Jared Turner)

Flit | (Voice actor: Kelson Henderson)

  • Combat Commentator: For various Megazord fights.
  • Fly Crazy: Being swallowed and swatted by Camille
  • Laughably Evil: He's not evil at all, really. He's just forced to be with Camille due to a curse.
  • Was Once a Man: He was turned into a fly by Camille. He is later turned back into a human towards the finale.
