!![[color:red:Leo Corbett / Red Galaxy Ranger]] | [-(Actor: Danny Slavin)-]
* BattleStrip: When you tear your shirt off only to morph five seconds later, you're pretty much showing off.
* CharacterDevelopment: Goes from an impulsive, somewhat brash stowaway to the brave, strong ranger he was destined to be.
* MrFanservice: Cue shirtless scene. Plus he gets ShipTease with every female Galaxy Ranger, a one-time love interest and Trakeena.
%%** StupidSexyFlanders
* TheHero: He had some doubts at first, but grew into this.
* JumpedAtTheCall: He wasn't selected to go one Terra Venture, but snuck on board.
* LawOfChromaticSuperiority: He gets a unique upgrade for his bike, and is the second Red to receive a Battlizer.
* MeaningfulName: "Leo" meaning "lion," which is his Galactabeast.
* PlayingWithFire: It gets the most plot relevance - the other Rangers' elements are mostly aesthetic, but Leo's turns out to be Grunchor's weakness.
** FireIsRed: Red Ranger after all.
* RedOniBlueOni: Red to Kai's Blue.
* RookieRedRanger: Only by virtue of not being one of the original five to get a Quasar Saber and by being the youngest.
* ShirtlessScene: Which made it into the opening montage.
* UnlimitedWardrobe: Despite being a stowaway with no luggage he went through the most civilian clothing changes before finally settling on his regular outfit.
%%* TallDarkAndHandsome

!![[color:blue:Kai Chen / Blue Galaxy Ranger]] | [-(Actor: Archie Kao)-]
* ByTheBookCop: Starts as one of these. Eventually gets a bit more bold as the series goes on, but doesn't fully grow out of this.
%%* DeadpanSnarker
* TheLancer: While Leo becomes leader, Kai fills this role when Leo isn't around.
* MakingASplash: Implied on occasion (a carryover from ''Gingaman'')
* MeaningfulName: His name could mean ocean in Japanese, and he's the Blue Ranger.
* RedOniBlueOni: The Blue to Leo's Red.
* TheStoic: He's the most serious and straight forward of the team.
* TeamChef: He can bake some good cookies.
* WaterIsBlue: Again, the water is more of an aesthetic, but water isn't exactly purple.

!![[color:green:Damon Henderson / Green Galaxy Ranger]] | [-(Actor: Reggie Rolle)-]
* BaldOfAwesome: He is bald but no less {{badass}} than the others.
* TheBait: In "Race to the Rescue" and the finale, to his annoyance.
* BlackAndNerdy: He's black and a MrFixit / GreaseMonkey.
* BlowYouAway: Implied on occasion (a carryover from ''Gingaman'')
%%* GeniusBruiser
* GreaseMonkey: He rejects a promotion because he likes getting dirty.
** MrFixIt / TheEngineer: He was the Megaship's mechanic after the Space Rangers left it one Earth.
%%* TheHeart
* TheSmartGuy: He's the most mechanically knowledgeable of the team.
* WindIsGreen: Wind doesn't actually have a color, but he still has the aesthetic.

!![[color:yellow:Maya / Yellow Galaxy Ranger]] | [-(Actress: Cerina Vincent)-]
* ActionGirl: Even unmorphed, she's not afraid to fight.
* AloofDarkHairedGirl: Averted, she's very friendly.
* BareYourMidriff: Her civillian outfit.
* [[TheBigGuy The Big Girl]]: She's pretty well developed... as a fighter.
* CuteBruiser: She's not afraid to fight.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: She loves animals and can understand them.
* {{Gainaxing}}: [[spoiler:In the scene where Kendrix performs HeroicSacrifice to save [[Series/PowerRangersInSpace Cassie]]]].
* HumanAlien: She's not from Earth.
* JunglePrincess: As seen in her introductory scene/.
* MsFanservice: Just... look at that outfit. Cerina Vincent would later go nude in ''NotAnotherTeenMovie''.
* NatureHero: She grew up in the jungle world of Miranoi.
* NubileSavage: Although perhaps she's only "savage" before she joined Power Rangers.
* OnlyOneName: "Maya" is all we know about her name.
* ThePollyanna: Despite losing her family, friends and homeworld, she's still pretty cheerful.
* ShesAManInJapan: Along with most Yellow Rangers in the franchise, despite her nice assets.
* ShockAndAwe: Implied on occasion (a carryover from ''Gingaman'')
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The Tomboy to Kendrix's girly girl.

!![[color:fuchsia:Kendrix Morgan / Pink Galaxy Ranger I]] | [-(Actress: Valerie Vernon)-]
* BadassBookworm: You'd think she wouldn't be able to handle herself, but she was seeing action even before being a Ranger.
%%* TheChick
* TheCutie: 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 IdenticalStranger 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. [[spoiler: But then consider that these circumstances are highly reminiscent of how she dies in her HeroicSacrifice, going into the vortex despite it hurting her and knowing that it will most likely kill her. Kendrix is just that kind of person.]]
* DisneyDeath: [[spoiler:She's brought back to life. Don't ask how, the show never fives an answer.]]
* GoOutWithASmile: In her HeroicSacrifice moment.
* HeroicSacrifice: Via RealLifeWritesThePlot.
* HotLibrarian: She's as pretty as she is smart.
* MegaNeko: Her Galactabeast / zord.
* {{Meganekko}}: She wears glasses, even in her morphing scenes.
* NerdsAreSexy: She's pretty much female Billy
* PetalPower: Implied on occasion (a carryover from ''Gingaman'')
* ShipTease: Gets the most with Leo more than Maya, Trakeena or Karone do. [[spoiler:Had her actress not leave the show for Cancer treatment, it would have ended in a RelationshipUpgrade]].
* TheSmartGirl: She's Terra Venture's head scientist.
* SpiritAdvisor: [[spoiler:Her ghost saves Karone from falling off a cliff, and she appears in Maya's dreams]].
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The girly girl to Maya's tomboy.
* UnexplainedRecovery: 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 [[RealLifeWritesThePlot after being diagnosed with leukaemia]], and the writers felt that they were safe with such an option, given the almost universal positive response to [[spoiler:Zordon's HeroicSacrifice 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]]The Doylist answer is that it would have been pretty heartless of the writers to kill her off just because her actress happened to be fighting a life-threatening illness. But there are no Peace Conferences in outer space, so "killing" her and then bringing her back for the finale would be the most efficient way to write around her absence. It's also been speculated that Valerie Vernon was kept in the opening credits so that she would still be considered a starring cast member and continue to draw a paycheck during her treatment. Vernon has mentioned in interviews that Saban gave her one of her first jobs post-treatment, voicing a monster in ''Lightspeed Rescue''.[[/note]]

!!Magna Defender | [-(Voice actor: Kerrigan Mahan)-]
* ActionDad: His motivation is to avenge his son's death.
* AgeLift: Possibly. In Gingaman, his son was instead his kid brother.
* AmbiguouslyHuman: Well, we assume he's a human, a HumanAlien or an alien resembling one like Trakeena under that suit. We never see him demorph, [[spoiler:even his ghost is still wearing the armor.]]
%%* {{Badass}}
* BadassBaritone
* BadassCape: Part of his suit.
* BestServedCold: [[spoiler:His only motivation is revenge of Scorpius.]]
* BlackAndGreyMorality: The first morally grey character in Power Rangers.
* BlackKnight: At least appearance-wise. Personality-wise, he is... [[AntiHero complicated]].
* DeadPersonConversation: [[spoiler:with his son]].
* LackOfEmpathy: [[spoiler: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 UndyingLoyalty for this.]]
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: [[spoiler:Aided by the spirit of his son, he redeems himself for the destruction he caused by sacrificing himself and freeing Mike.]]
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Against Scorpius for the death of his son.
%%* PapaWolf
* SixthRanger: Subverted, he wants nothing to do with the Rangers.
* [[YouKilledMyFather You Killed My Son]]: His son is killed many years before the series.

!![[spoiler:Mike Corbett]]/ Magna Defender II | [-(Actor: Russell Lawrence)-]
* BigBrotherMentor: For Leo.
* DeathByOriginStory: [[spoiler: Subverted]].
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:He sacrifices the Magna Defender powers to help Terra Venture escape the Lost Galaxy. They're somehow restored by ''Super Megaforce''.]]
* LegacyCharacter: He becomes second Magna Defender after the original's death.
* NotQuiteDead / OnlyMostlyDead: Essentially what happened to him.
* SixthRanger: Fits this more than the original Magna Defender.
%%* TheParagon
* TakeUpMySword: Gave his sword to Leo. [[spoiler:Later, Magna Defender gave him his.]]
%%* TeamDad

!![[color:fuchsia:Karone / Pink Galaxy Ranger II]] | [-(Actress: Melody Perkins)-]
!!!Note: See also the [[Characters/PowerRangersInSpace character sheet]] for ''Series/PowerRangersInSpace''.

%%* ActionGirl
* TheAtoner: She wants to atone for her evil deeds as [[Series/PowerRangersInSpace Astronema]].
* BareYourMidriff: Her black leather outfit is not only tight but also rather small for [[{{Fanservice}} certain reason]].
* TheChick: She's even chickier.
* ContinuityNod: Even without the [[PowerRangersInSpace multicolored]] [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair 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, [[GirlishPigTails like Baby Spice]], braided half-up with pink stars. Also, while her outfit is more conventional, [[MsFanservice she]] [[HellBentForLeather still seems to have a thing for black leather...]]
** The GirlishPigTails may or may not be a ShoutOut Patricia Ja Lee, who regularly wore the style in ''Turbo'' and was originally going to be the replacement Pink Galaxy Ranger.
* CuteBruiser: Her first few appearances anyway... she ''is'' the former Princess of Evil, after all.
* TheCutie: Easily slides into this role after Kendrix's departure.
* DesignatedGirlFight: Between her and Trakeena in "Protect the Quasar Saber".
* EasilyForgiven: Despite [[TheAtoner 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 [[TheAtoner does take her a little longer]] to forgive ''herself''.
* GoodFeelsGood: She's much happier being a good guy than she was [[Series/PowerRangersInSpace as]] [[BigBad Astronema]]. She lampshades it more much later in ''Super Megaforce''.
--> "I love being a Power Ranger!"
* HowDoIShotWeb: "Galactabeasts, over here!!"
* HumanAlien: She's not from Earth.
* InstantExpert: ZigZagged. 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 HowDoIShootWeb above.
* ItRunsInTheFamily: Her brother is a [[Series/PowerRangersInSpace Red Ranger]].
* MsFanservice: Black. Leather. Yum. She also barely follows ColorCodedForYourConvenience. The only pink she wears are things like hairclips and headbands.
* OnlyOneName: Again, her last name is unknown, and possibly she doesn't have last name at all.
* SecretTestOfCharacter: Sort of. [[spoiler: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 MonsterOfTheWeek but his hand is also tied. Karone says to "Astronema" to [[TakeMeInstead take her instead]], which surprised the latter. And the illusion immediately vanished afterwards]].
%%* {{Stripperific}}
* [[TalkingToHimself 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.
* TheSixthRanger: Just not an "extra Ranger" that would come in occasionally for backup, like how Tommy (in the first season of ''MMPR''), [[PowerRangersInSpace Zhane]], [[spoiler: Mike]], [[PowerRangersLightspeedRescue Ryan]], or [[PowerRangersTimeForce Eric]], etc. were.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: 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.
* WomanInBlack: Unlike other Rangers, she doesn't wear her color in civilian form, other than a barely noticeable hair clip. She wears all black.


[[folder:'''Their Friends''']]

!!Alpha 6 | [-(Voice actress: WendeeLee)-]
* TheArtifact: He doesn't fill his usual role as the MissionControl anymore, and only seems to be there as a reference to the Zordon Era.
* MissionControl: Doesn't always fill this role, but does point them to danger several times, particularly in the first couple episodes.
* RobotBuddy: As usual, his entire purpose.
* VerbalTic: "Ay yi yi!"

* HeroicSacrifice: By the end.

!!Commander Stanton
* TheCaptain: ''Commander'' of Terra Venture.
* TheObiWan: Of sorts to the Terra Venture crew, especially Mike.
%%* ReasonableAuthorityFigure

!!Bulk and Professor Phenomenous
* DemotedToExtra: While they still filled some screentime with comical scenes in ''PowerRangersInSpace'', in this series, they only appear in a handfull of cameo's without doing anything .


[[folder:'''Their Enemies''']]

!!Scorpius | [-(Voice actor: Creator/KimStrauss)-]
* CombatTentacles: They're actually pretty useful in battle.
* DiscOneFinalBoss: He appears to be the BigBad at first, it doesn't last long.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: See PapaWolf below.
* GalacticConqueror: He had conquered several worlds before encountering Terra Venture.
* NobleDemon: He's been described as less of a villain and more of a warrior king.
* PapaWolf: We don't recommend hurting Trakeena in front of Scorpius.
* StarfishAliens: A spider-octopus-blob thing... with a human-like daughter.

!!Deviot | [-(Voice actor: Bob Papenbrook)-]
* AdaptationalVillainy: His Gingaman counterpart, Biznella, is still a villain, but ''nowhere'' as horrible as Deviot becomes.
* ArmCannon: His primary weapon.
* BadBoss: 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.
* TheChessmaster: Frequently
* DirtyCoward: Tends to run away or plead for his life whenever he faces a real threat.
%%* DragonWithAnAgenda
* EvilBrit: The late Bob Papenbrook gave him this voice.
* {{Expy}}: He and Villamax fill similar roles to Darkonda and Ecliptor, although Deviot prefers not to get his own hands dirty.
* ManipulativeBastard: He'll trick and double cross anyone he meets for power.
* MeaningfulName: Deviot is devious.
* RoboticPsychopath" 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.
* SissyVillain: 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.
* TheStarscream: 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.

!!Furio | [-(Voice actor: Tom Wyner)-]
* CanonImmigrant: He is from ''Megaranger'' (the previous ''Sentai''), not ''Gingaman''.
* TheDragon: The first one of several.
* StaticCharacter: Compared to the other generals after him who have interesting characters. Furio is kinda flat.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Scorpious gets sick of Furio's failures to get the Lights of Orion very quickly.

!!Treachoron | [-(Voice actor: Creator/DerekStephenPrince)-]
* TheDragon: Succeeding Furio.
* EvilVirtues: 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.
* NobleDemon: A unique example among other NobleDemon's in Power Rangers, while he never shows human compassion like [[PowerRangersInSpace Ecliptor]],Villamax, or [[PowerRangersLightSpeedRescue 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.
* NonIndicativeName: 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)-]
* AvengingTheVillain: For Scorpius.
* BadassPrincess: An evil version.
* TheBaroness: She's vain, always in black and has NoSenseOfPersonalSpace, 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.
* BigBad: For this season.
* BrattyTeenageDaughter: Initially.
* CatFight: [[strike:Astronema]] Karone vs. Trakeena! Ding!
* CharacterDevelopment: Quite possibly the best developed villain in a PowerRangers 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 BigBad 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 OneWingedAngel form.
* DaddysLittleVillain: She's Scorpius' daughter.
* DarkActionGirl: Once she TookALevelInBadass.
* EvilMakesYouUgly: Her forced fusion and eventual entrance to The Cocoon occurred when she became more vicious.
* FromNobodyToNightmare:
* KnightOfCerebus: Trakeena proved to be much deadlier than her father ever was.
%%* ManipulativeBitch
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Her entire character arc.
* OneWingedAngel: Her insectile form counts as this. In Series/PowerRangersLightspeedRescue, she tries to turn back into it. [[spoiler: Thanks to the BigBad 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.]]
* TookALevelInBadass: Which is shown in the course of one episode. At first she is utterly humiliated by some thugs in a BadGuyBar. But after heavy training under the guidance of Villamax, she manages to deliver a humiliating defeat to said thugs.
* UngratefulBitch: She framed Treachoron despite his loyalty. [[spoiler: Destroying Villamax, who had trained her and stood by her side loyally.]]
* YouKilledMyFather: She wants revenge on the rangers, most notably Leo, for this.

!!Villamax | [-(Actor: David Lodge)-]
* AdaptationalHeroism: He used the same model as Sambash from Gingaman, but while Sambash is an unabashed bastard, Villamax is instead an AntiVillain and NobleDemon. Though not enough to make him do a HeelFaceTurn.
* AntiVillain: 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.
* AscendedExtra: His Japanese counterpart was the first to go in the QuirkyMiniBossSquad, however he was replaced by Furio.
* TheDragon: To Trakeena.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: 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. [[spoiler: 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 GrandFinale. He finally snapped when Trakeena ordered him to destroy fleeing shuttles filled with innocents.]]
* EvilVirtues: Honor and Loyalty.
* FamousLastWords:
--> '''Villamax''': [[spoiler:(To Trakeena} You have learned... nothing...]]
* NobleDemon: 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 [[Series/SeijuuSentaiGingaman Sambash]] who is a BadBoss and overall dishonorable (and uses gun, Villamax uses sword).
%%* PunchClockVillain
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: [[spoiler: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]].
* UndyingLoyalty: To Trakeena. [[spoiler: It gets him killed in the end when he refuses to fight back against her]].

!!Kegler | [-(Voice actor: Richard Cansino)-]
* GadgeteerGenius: He's good with technology.
* HereWeGoAgain: Has this air when Villamax offers his services to Trakeena.
* [[spoiler:KilledOffScreen]]: [[spoiler: 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 [[BigBad Trakeena]] suggests that Kegler didn't survive.]]
* NonActionGuy: Even Deviot sees more action than him.
%%* ShorterMeansSmarter
* VillainousFriendship: Had a long-time one with Villamax. [[spoiler:When Trakeena kills him, Kegler breaks down in tears.]]
* VillainyFreeVillain: 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)-]
* BadassBeard: He's got a nice chin curtain.
* BadassGrandpa: Admits he's pretty old.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: Courtesy of Deviot.
* EpicFlail: His signature weapon.
%%* EvenEvilHasStandards
* FallenHero: He used to be a hero, but switched when he realized how powerful evil was.
* TheLastDance: He knows he doesn't have much time left.
%%* NobleDemon
* OldSoldier: With some old values. He refused to fight Maya for being a girl but decided to do so anyway since she's a ranger.
%%* VillainOfTheWeek
* WorthyOpponent: Is looking for one.

!!Captain Mutiny | [-(Voice actor: Mike Reynolds)-]
* DemotedToExtra: His Japanese counterpart, Captain Zahab, was the BigBad of ''Gingaman''; in ''Lost Galaxy'' he appears for one story arc and is then [[spoiler:uncermoniously killed off by Trakeena.]]
* SpacePirate: A space pirate captain.
* TheUnfought: Never really took on the rangers in direct combat.
