Leo Corbett / Red Galaxy Ranger | (Actor: Danny Slavin)
- Battle Strip: When you tear your shirt off only to morph five seconds later, you're pretty much showing off.
- Character Development: Goes from an impulsive, somewhat brash stowaway to the brave, strong ranger he was destined to be.
- Mr. Fanservice: Cue shirtless scene. Plus he gets Ship Tease with every female Galaxy Ranger, a one-time love interest and Trakeena.
- The Hero: He had some doubts at first, but grew into this.
- Jumped at the Call: He wasn't selected to go one Terra Venture, but snuck on board.
- Law of Chromatic Superiority: He gets a unique upgrade for his bike, and is the second Red to receive a Battlizer.
- Meaningful Name: "Leo" meaning "lion," which is his Galactabeast.
- Playing with Fire: It gets the most plot relevance - the other Rangers' elements are mostly aesthetic, but Leo's turns out to be Grunchor's weakness.
- Fire Is Red: Red Ranger after all.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: Red to Kai's Blue.
- Rookie Red Ranger: Only by virtue of not being one of the original five to get a Quasar Saber and by being the youngest.
- Shirtless Scene: Which made it into the opening montage.
- Unlimited Wardrobe: Despite being a stowaway with no luggage he went through the most civilian clothing changes before finally settling on his regular outfit.
Kai Chen / Blue Galaxy Ranger | (Actor: Archie Kao)
- By-the-Book Cop: Starts as one of these. Eventually gets a bit more bold as the series goes on, but doesn't fully grow out of this.
- The Lancer: While Leo becomes leader, Kai fills this role when Leo isn't around.
- Making a Splash: Implied on occasion (a carryover from Gingaman)
- Meaningful Name: His name could mean ocean in Japanese, and he's the Blue Ranger.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue to Leo's Red.
- The Stoic: He's the most serious and straight forward of the team.
- Team Chef: He can bake some good cookies.
- Water Is Blue: Again, the water is more of an aesthetic, but water isn't exactly purple.
Damon Henderson / Green Galaxy Ranger | (Actor: Reggie Rolle)
- Bald of Awesome: He is bald but no less badass than the others.
- The Bait: In "Race to the Rescue" and the finale, to his annoyance.
- Black and Nerdy: He's black and a Mr. Fixit / Grease Monkey.
- Blow You Away: Implied on occasion (a carryover from Gingaman)
- Grease Monkey: He rejects a promotion because he likes getting dirty.
- Kicked Upstairs: One episode has him competing with another engineer for the position of lead mechanic. He wins, but promptly turns it over to his rival when learns he'd just be drafting diagrams and won't be able to get his hands dirty anymore.
- Mr Fix It / The Engineer: He was the Megaship's mechanic after the Space Rangers left it one Earth.
- The Smart Guy: He's the most mechanically knowledgeable of the team.
- Wind is Green: Wind doesn't actually have a color, but he still has the aesthetic.
Maya / Yellow Galaxy Ranger | (Actress: Cerina Vincent)
- Action Girl: Even unmorphed, she's not afraid to fight.
- Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: Averted, she's very friendly.
- Bare Your Midriff: Her civillian outfit.
- The Big Girl: She's pretty well developed... as a fighter.
- Culture Clash: Given she comes from a planet that doesn't celebrate birthdays, she doesn't realize the function of a birthday cake, and manages to eat almost all of one Kendrix had cooked for Damon.
- Cute Bruiser: She's not afraid to fight.
- Friend to All Living Things: She loves animals and can understand them.
- Gainaxing: In the scene where Kendrix performs Heroic Sacrifice to save Cassie.
- Human Alien: She's not from Earth.
- Jungle Princess: As seen in her introductory scene/.
- Ms. Fanservice: Just... look at that outfit. Cerina Vincent would later go nude in Not Another Teen Movie and Cabin Fever.
- Nature Hero: She grew up in the jungle world of Miranoi.
- Nubile Savage: Although perhaps she's only "savage" before she joined Power Rangers.
- Only One Name: "Maya" is all we know about her name.
- The Pollyanna: Despite losing her family, friends and homeworld, she's still pretty cheerful.
- She's a Man in Japan: Along with most Yellow Rangers in the franchise, despite her nice assets.
- Shock and Awe: Implied on occasion (a carryover from Gingaman)
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: The Tomboy to Kendrix's girly girl.
Kendrix Morgan / Pink Galaxy Ranger I | (Actress: Valerie Vernon)
- Badass Bookworm: You'd think she wouldn't be able to handle herself, but she was seeing action even before being a Ranger.
- The Cutie: She's a sweet person and didn't try to turn Leo over after learning he was a stowaway.
- Determinator: The episode where she fills in for her Identical Stranger Carolyn in a movie and continues doing takes over and over again to the point of physical pain and exhaustion without complaint could just be seen as a throwaway moral lesson in a filler episode. But then consider that these circumstances are highly reminiscent of how she dies in her Heroic Sacrifice, going into the vortex despite it hurting her and knowing that it will most likely kill her. Kendrix is just that kind of person.
- Disney Death: She's brought back to life. Don't ask how, the show never fives an answer.
- Go Out with a Smile: In her Heroic Sacrifice moment.
- Heroic Sacrifice: Via Real Life Writes the Plot.
- Hot Librarian: She's as pretty as she is smart.
- Mega Neko: Her Galactabeast / zord.
- Meganekko: She wears glasses, even in her morphing scenes.
- Nerds Are Sexy: She's pretty much female Billy
- Petal Power: Implied on occasion (a carryover from Gingaman)
- Ship Tease: Gets the most with Leo more than Maya, Trakeena or Karone do. Had her actress not leave the show for Cancer treatment, it would have ended in a Relationship Upgrade.
- The Smart Girl: She's Terra Venture's head scientist.
- Spirit Advisor: Her ghost saves Karone from falling off a cliff, and she appears in Maya's dreams.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: The girly girl to Maya's tomboy.
- Unexplained Recovery: In the finale, no explanation was given for how she was restored to life. (Admittedly, no-one had ever directly stated she had been killed, although it was pretty obvious; the actress portraying her had to leave after being diagnosed with leukaemia, and the writers felt that they were safe with such an option, given the almost universal positive response to Zordon's Heroic Sacrifice in the previous series.) There was a lot of speculation among fans, like that the Sabre had something to do with it, but nothing definite.note
Magna Defender | (Voice actor: Kerrigan Mahan)
- Action Dad: His motivation is to avenge his son's death.
- Age Lift: Possibly. In Gingaman, his son was instead his kid brother.
- Ambiguously Human: Well, we assume he's a human, a Human Alien or an alien resembling one like Trakeena under that suit. We never see him demorph, even his ghost is still wearing the armor.
- Badass Baritone
- Badass Cape: Part of his suit.
- Best Served Cold: His only motivation is revenge of Scorpius.
- Black and Grey Morality: The first morally grey character in Power Rangers.
- Black Knight: At least appearance-wise. Personality-wise, he is... complicated.
- Dead Person Conversation: with his son.
- Lack of Empathy: He'll use or hurt anyone for his revenge. Even Trakeena, who was innocent at the time, was almost killed by him. His Toro Zord forgoes its Undying Loyalty for this.
- Redemption Equals Death: Aided by the spirit of his son, he redeems himself for the destruction he caused by sacrificing himself and freeing Mike.
- Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Against Scorpius for the death of his son.
- Sixth Ranger: Subverted, he wants nothing to do with the Rangers.
- You Killed My Son: His son is killed many years before the series.
Mike Corbett/ Magna Defender II | (Actor: Russell Lawrence)
- Big Brother Mentor: For Leo.
- Death by Origin Story: Subverted.
- Heroic Sacrifice: He sacrifices the Magna Defender powers to help Terra Venture escape the Lost Galaxy. They're somehow restored by Super Megaforce.
- Legacy Character: He becomes second Magna Defender after the original's death.
- Not Quite Dead / Only Mostly Dead: Essentially what happened to him.
- Sixth Ranger: Fits this more than the original Magna Defender.
- Take Up My Sword: Gave his sword to Leo. Later, Magna Defender gave him his.
Karone / Pink Galaxy Ranger II | (Actress: Melody Perkins)
Note: See also the character sheet for Power Rangers in Space.
- The Atoner: She wants to atone for her evil deeds as Astronema.
- Bare Your Midriff: Her black leather outfit is not only tight but also rather small for certain reason.
- The Chick: She's even chickier.
- Continuity Nod: Even without the multicolored wigs, she still changes her hair style far more often than anyone else. Maya alternates between two hair styles (loose and a twisted half up, half down style) and Kendrix generally wears either a severe ponytail or a more relaxed one with a few locks to frame her face, unless there's a specific plot-relevant reason she isn't. Karone, who only appears in about seven episodes, wears her hair loose, in a ponytail, with one pink clip pulling it to the side, with a pink headband, like Baby Spice, braided half-up with pink stars. Also, while her outfit is more conventional, she still seems to have a thing for black leather...
- The Girlish Pig Tails may or may not be a Shout-Out to Patricia Ja Lee, who regularly wore the style in Turbo and was originally going to be the replacement Pink Galaxy Ranger.
- There's a Hoberman sphere like the one she and Andros were playing with when Darkonda kidnapped her in her and Maya's room after she moves onto the Terra Venture.
- Cute Bruiser: Her first few appearances anyway... she is the former Princess of Evil, after all.
- The Cutie: Easily slides into this role after Kendrix's departure.
- Dark and Troubled Past: Starts when she's kidnapped as a child and runs all the way through pretty much the entire previous season. She's trying like no one's business to make up for it, though.
- Designated Girl Fight: Between her and Trakeena in "Protect the Quasar Saber". The Mirror Match between her and "Astronema" in the following episode could count also.
- Easily Forgiven: Despite feeling quite guilty about it herself, nobody really gives her any grief about her past as Astronema. Even a warrior she turned to stone (and left there...for years) pretty much instantly forgave her. Though it does take her a little longer to forgive herself.
- Non-Expository Hairstyle Change: As noted above in her Continuity Nod, she still changes hairstyles in between each episode and just like before, there's no particular reason for it.
- Expy: Of Katherine "Kat" Hilliard.
- Friend to All Children: The second episode featuring her shows her playing catch/tag with a bunch of kids and clearly enjoying herself. As she explains it, she never had much of a childhood and is trying to make up for lost time.
- Good Feels Good: She's much happier being a good guy than she was as Astronema. She lampshades it more much later in Super Megaforce."I love being a Power Ranger!"
- How Do I Shot Web?: "Galactabeasts, over here!!"
- Human Alien: She's not from Earth.
- Instant Expert: Zig-Zagged. She was trained to fight when she was evil; it was just which side she was up against that changed. Averted when she summons her Galactabeast for the first time. See How Do I Shot Web? above.
- It Runs in the Family: Her brother is a Red Ranger.
- Lady of War: Of the Cute Bruiser variety. She's a former Princess of Evil, is pretty handy in a fight, and is more rough-and-tumble compared to Kendrix.
- Ms. Fanservice: Black. Leather. Yum. She also barely follows Color-Coded for Your Convenience. The only pink she wears are things like hairclips and headbands.
- Only One Name: Again, her last name is unknown, and possibly she doesn't have last name at all.
- Secret Test of Character: Sort of. In the episode right after she becomes Ranger, she's forced to face an illusion of Astronema—without morphing. The "Astronema" threatened to kill Leo who is not only severely injured from previous battle against Monster of the Week but his hand is also tied. Karone says to "Astronema" to take her instead, which surprised the latter. And the illusion immediately vanished afterwards.
- Talking To Herself- In-universe example: she fights a personified version of her former self as Astronema to prove that she really has reformed from darkness and they're both played by Melody Perkins.
- The Sixth Ranger: Just not an "extra Ranger" that would come in occasionally for backup, like how Tommy (in the first season of MMPR), Zhane, Mike, Ryan, or Eric, etc. were.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: The Girly Girl to Maya's Tomboy and again, she slides into this almost seamlessly after replacing Kendrix. She's got more of a tomboyish streak in her, though.
- Woman in Black: Unlike other Rangers, she doesn't wear her color in civilian form, other than a barely noticeable hair clip. She wears all black.
Alpha 6 | (Voice actress: Wendee Lee)
- The Artifact: He doesn't fill his usual role as the Mission Control anymore, and only seems to be there as a reference to the Zordon Era.
- Mission Control: Doesn't always fill this role, but does point them to danger several times, particularly in the first couple episodes.
- Robot Buddy: As usual, his entire purpose.
- Verbal Tic: "Ay yi yi!"
- Heroic Sacrifice: By the end.
- The Captain: Commander of Terra Venture.
- Horrible Judge of Character: He actually takes a guy called Captain Mutiny at his word. Amazingly, the guy double-crosses them.
- The Obi-Wan: Of sorts to the Terra Venture crew, especially Mike.
Bulk and Professor Phenomenous
Scorpius | (Voice actor: Kim Strauss)
- Combat Tentacles: They're actually pretty useful in battle.
- Disc One Final Boss: He appears to be the Big Bad at first, it doesn't last long.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: See Papa Wolf below.
- Galactic Conqueror: He had conquered several worlds before encountering Terra Venture.
- Noble Demon: He's been described as less of a villain and more of a warrior king.
- Papa Wolf: We don't recommend hurting Trakeena in front of Scorpius.
- Starfish Aliens: A spider-octopus-blob thing... with a human-like daughter.
Deviot | (Voice actor: Bob Papenbrook)
- Adaptational Villainy: His Gingaman counterpart, Biznella, is still a villain, but nowhere as horrible as Deviot becomes.
- Arm Cannon: His primary weapon.
- Bad Boss: He sends two hitmen to destroy Trakeena, but when one is captured and threatened to reveal who hired him, Deviot kills him before he could talk.
- Badass: Remember, this is the guy who beat two rangers at once in his introduction, and he'd enslaved 3 zords before his introduction as well.
- The Chessmaster: Frequently
- Dirty Coward: Tends to run away or plead for his life whenever he faces a real threat.
- Dragon with an Agenda: He joined Scorpius' army, with the intention of entering The Cocoon.
- Evil Brit: Courtest of the late Bob Papenbrook.
- Expy: He and Villamax fill similar roles to Darkonda and Ecliptor, although Deviot prefers not to get his own hands dirty.
- The Heavy: Scorpius and Trakeena may be the Big Bad, but once Deviot's on the scene he's usually the one doing the scheming, and the fighting.
- Manipulative Bastard: He'll trick and double cross anyone he meets for power.
- Meaningful Name: Deviot is devious.
- Robotic Psychopath: At least, he appears to be a robot. But considering he tried to enter The Cocoon, it's likely he's a cyborg since he'd need organic components for it to work.
- Sissy Villain: The way he looks. But more so by the fact he acts like a coward when his Chessmaster plans fail. It's hard to take him seriously running away from Villamax during the first part of the finale.
- The Starscream: He was easily the successor to Darkonda, once again not after the big bad, but after her powers. In the end, his greed for those powers was his undoing, as he and Trakeena battled into the cocoon containing the ultimate power, causing Deviot's ruthlessness to become infused into Trakeena and destroying Deviot himself.
- Took a Level in Badass: Not that he wasn't badass before, but the upgrade given to him by the Galaxy Book makes him even stronger, capable of shrugging off the Lights of Orion. And for whatever reason, Deviot immediately ditches it one episode later.
- Welcome Back, Traitor: Averted, when he returns from the Lost Galaxy. He tries to claim Captain Mutiny forced him to join his crew, but Trakeena's having none of it, and just has Villamax attack him. And it almost works, up until Deviot forces himself and Trakeena into the cocoon.
Furio | (Voice actor: Tom Wyner)
- Canon Immigrant: He is from Megaranger (the previous Sentai), not Gingaman.
- The Dragon: The first one of several.
- Meaningful Name: Unlike some of the Non Indicative Names this series provides, Furio actually is pretty bad-tempered.
- Static Character: Compared to the other generals after him who have interesting characters. Furio is kinda flat.
- Taking You with Me: After one too many failed attempts to beat the Rangers, he tries blowing himself up mid-fight with Leo. All it manages to do is knock him out for a few hours.
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Scorpious gets sick of Furio's failures to get the Lights of Orion very quickly.
Treachoron | (Voice actor: Derek Stephen Prince)
- Back from the Dead: For a few minutes, thanks to Hexuba. Then Mike puts him down again.
- The Dragon: Succeeding Furio.
- Evil Virtues: Loyalty and Valor.
- Irony: He declares that Leo represents everything he hates: Goodness, honesty and decency. Yet he exhibits these qualities, admittedly in a villainous sense.
- Noble Demon: A unique example among other Noble Demon's in Power Rangers, while he never shows human compassion like Ecliptor,Villamax, or Diabolico he is fiercely loyal to his master Scorpius, treats his subordinates extremely well, and allows his opponents a fair fight rather than taking them down at the opportunity.
- Non-Indicative Name: His name is play on the words Treachery, and he's incredibly loyal and honorable. Ironically he is framed by Trakeena and dies with Scorpius thinking he's a traitor.
Trakeena | (Actress: Amy Miller)
- Avenging the Villain: For Scorpius.
- Ax-Crazy / Omnicidal Maniac: Merging with Deviot turns her into one, to the point that even Villamax, her most loyal soldier, ends up not being safe from her wrath.
- Badass Princess: An evil version.
- The Baroness: She's vain, always in black and has No Sense of Personal Space, whether it be with Leo or a monster of the day disguised as one of Maya's old friends, complete with having her finger on the latter's human disguise. Leo and Damon even admit to themselves they're attracted to her.
- Big Bad: For this season.
- Bratty Teenage Daughter: Initially.
- Cat Fight:
AstronemaKarone vs. Trakeena! Ding!
- Character Development: Quite possibly the best developed villain in a Power Rangers series that doesn't turn good. She starts off little more than a spoiled brat, not very battle competent, and more concerned with her looks than evil. After being trained by Villamax she soons takes over as the new Big Bad following her father's death and proves to be far more competent than he ever was. After merging with Deviot she becomes a complete psychopath and issues a suicide bomb attack to destroy Terra Venture, and in a last ditch effort she finally goes into the cocoon she once rejected, to obtain her One-Winged Angel form.
- Daddy's Little Villain: She's Scorpius' daughter.
- Dark Action Girl: Once she Took a Level in Badass.
- Disproportionate Retribution: She frames Treacheron simply because he was stern toward her, causing her father to brand him a traitor. He ends up dying before he has a chance to clear his name.
- Evil Is Petty: One of her schemes involves sending a monster to steal the beauty of all the women on Terra Venture, just because it said there were probably better looking than her.
- Evil Makes You Ugly: Her forced fusion and eventual entrance to The Cocoon occurred when she became more vicious. It also changes her make-up to include unsightly lines running from her eyes, making her look crazy (or crazier).
- From Nobody to Nightmare: From whiny little spoiled brat to one of the most memorable villains in Power Rangers history.
- Fusion Dance: The finale begins with Deviot forcing both of them into the cocoon. Trakeena comes out with Deviot's arm cannon, metallic reverb, and his ruthlessness.
- Knight of Cerebus: Trakeena proved to be much deadlier than her father ever was.
- Not-So-Harmless Villain: Her entire character arc.
- One-Winged Angel: Her insectile form counts as this. In Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue, she tries to turn back into it. Thanks to the Big Bad of that series, she gets turned into a gigantic monster that's only stopped by the combined power of the Omega Megazord and the Lights of Orion.
- Took a Level in Badass: Which is shown in the course of one episode. At first she is utterly humiliated by some thugs in a Bad-Guy Bar. But after heavy training under the guidance of Villamax, she manages to deliver a humiliating defeat to said thugs.
- Ungrateful Bitch: She framed Treachoron despite his loyalty. Destroying Villamax, who had trained her and stood by her side loyally.
- World's Most Beautiful Woman: When she visits Terra Venture in disguise as an ordinary human, everyone is struck dumb just looking at her, including the male Rangers. Hilarity Ensues.
- You Killed My Father: She wants revenge on the rangers, most notably Leo, for this.
Villamax | (Actor: David Lodge)
- Adaptational Heroism: He used the same model as Sambash from Gingaman, but while Sambash is an unabashed bastard, Villamax is instead an Anti-Villain and Noble Demon. Though not enough to make him do a Heel–Face Turn.
- Anti-Villain: He only seems to serve Trakeena because he cares for her and does not seem particularly malicious himself. The only hostile actions he took where directly against the rangers.
- Ascended Extra: His Japanese counterpart was the first to go in the Quirky Mini Boss Squad, however he was replaced by Furio.
- Badass Biker: He's introduced as having a very cool looking motorcycle and is definitely a Badass.
- The Dragon: To Trakeena.
- Even Evil Has Standards: Held all the rangers, sans Leo, hostage, in order to make Leo come with him. After Leo complied, he held his word and freed the others. A more notable example is when he shows disgust at a crazed Trakeena using all her Sting Wingers as suicide bombers at Terra Venture during the Grand Finale. He finally snapped when Trakeena ordered him to destroy fleeing shuttles filled with innocents.
- Evil Virtues: Honor and Loyalty.
- Famous Last Words:Villamax: (To Trakeena} You have learned... nothing...
- Noble Demon: If Deviot is Lost Galaxy's version of Darkonda, Villamax is the succesor to Ecliptor. He is honorable, looks out for the female antagonist and a badass swordsman, among many other similarities. This is despite that his model counterpart was instead Sambash who is a Bad Boss and overall dishonorable (and uses gun, Villamax uses sword).
- Obi-Wan Moment: He openly defies Trakeena when ordered to fire upon innocent fleeing civilians. When she threatens him, he delivers the above Famous Last Words line and dies honorably.
- Redemption Equals Death: Subverted. He fought Trakeena in order to prevent her from blowing up innocent people. Since he trained Trakeena in the first place, he was probably more than able to defeat her in combat, but due to his loyalty to her, he refused to fight. Thus he did not actually redeem himself in the traditional sense. It does buy the Rangers enough time to use the Megaship to stop Trakeena from blowing up the innocent people, however.
- The Obi-Wan: Is this to Trakeena.
- Undying Loyalty: To Trakeena. It gets him killed in the end when he refuses to fight back against her.
Kegler | (Voice actor: Richard Cansino)
- Gadgeteer Genius: He's good with technology.
- Here We Go Again: Has this air when Villamax offers his services to Trakeena.
- Killed Offscreen: He was piloting the Scorpion Stinger when it crashed. Though we never see his body, the fact that said crash was enough to badly hurt Trakeena suggests that Kegler didn't survive.
- Non-Action Guy: Even Deviot sees more action than him.
- Villainous Friendship: Had a long-time one with Villamax. When Trakeena kills him, Kegler breaks down in tears.
- Villainy-Free Villain: Despite working for Trakeena, he rarely does anything bad. He never shows any malice either, coming off as a timid, good-natured fellow.
Loyax | (Voice actor: Simon Prescott)
- Badass Beard: He's got a nice chin curtain.
- Badass Grandpa: Admits he's pretty old.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: Courtesy of Deviot.
- Epic Flail: His signature weapon.
- Fallen Hero: He used to be a hero, but switched when he realized how powerful evil was.
- The Last Dance: He knows he doesn't have much time left.
- Old Soldier: With some old values. He refused to fight Maya for being a girl but decided to do so anyway since she's a ranger.
- Worthy Opponent: Is looking for one.
Captain Mutiny | (Voice actor: Mike Reynolds)
- Demoted to Extra: His Japanese counterpart, Captain Zahab, was the Big Bad of Gingaman; in Lost Galaxy he appears for one story arc and is then uncermoniously killed off by Trakeena.
- Dropped a Bridge on Him: Mere seconds after going through the portal out of the Lost Galaxy, Trakeena orders his castle destroyed. And that's the end of Captain Mutiny.
- Knight of Cerebus: The first two episodes Mutiny appear in are amazingly serious for Power Rangers, and Mutiny is more depraved than Trakeena had so far managed to be in an instant, capturing people and implicitly working them to death.
- Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Captain Mutiny.
- Politically Incorrect Villain: He enslaves anyone who enters his territory.
- Space Pirate: A space pirate captain.
- Talk Like a Pirate: To keep with the pirate theme.
- The Unfought: Never really took on the rangers in direct combat, though he did pilot a Monster of the Week against them. Mike does sort of get into a fight with him, but he gets knocked out by Mutiny's first and only shot.
