    open/close all folders 

    Earth's Defenders 

Troy Burrows/ (Super) Megaforce Red (Actor: Andrew Gray)

  • Character Development: Subtle, but notice the difference between the loner-ish new kid from "Mega Mission" and the friendly, if quiet boy in "The Human Factor". He's more of a Static Character.
  • Composite Character: He's stoic like Jason, a new kid and a loner like Green Ranger Tommy and shares their passion for martial arts.
  • Defrosting Ice King: Subtle, but there.
  • Determinator: When you're Alata's counterpart, this is inevitable.
  • Dreaming of Things to Come: Frequently dreams about the "Legend War" from Gokaiger.
  • Heroic Spirit: Is chosen due to his pure spirit, discipline and his willingness to face adversity with courage.
  • Humans Are Special: He firmly believes that humanity can accomplish anything.
  • Humble Hero: When a boaster claims he's the Red Ranger, his response is simply to let it be instead of being upset someone is stealing credit for his heroism.
  • Instant Awesome, Just Add Dragons: Troy's designated Power Animal.
  • Land, Sea, Sky: Uses the powers of the Sky alongside Emma.
  • The Leader: He turns out to be a pretty good one despite being the Rookie Red Ranger, in part due to his dedication to the job.
  • Mr. Fanservice / Stupid Sexy Flanders: Let's state the obvious, Andrew Gray is several kinds of pretty, as his rather extensive modelling portfolio will attest to. He might be a little too optimistic to rack up any "bad boy" points, but the rest is there.
  • Nerves of Steel: In "Who's Crying Now?", when he's confronted by two bullies. He doesn't show any sign of fear nor does he show signs of getting into any physical altercations with them.
  • New Transfer Student: Has only just recently moved to Harwood County.
  • Nice Guy: While he doesn't speak much, he does seem genuinely optimistic and kind. Even when dealing with Jordan, he never got mad with him, instead seeming more amused with the whole thing.
  • The Quiet One: Doesn't talk as much when compared to his teammates, and as of the first four episodes, hasn't really spoken to Jake or Noah outside of a battle against the Warstar.
  • Rookie Red Ranger: When Gosei picked him to be the Red Ranger, Troy was unsure of this since he is new in town and he was picked right off the bat. Despite this, he embraced the role of the Red Ranger and leader and is the one to make the call to transform. He's also the most dedicated to the job, realizing just how important their protecting Earth is.
  • The Stoic: Even more so than Gia. It takes the death of Creepox for him to loosen up a little.
    • Not So Stoic: As seen in his attempts to make Noah laugh in "Last Laugh". It kinda comes out of left field in light of what we've seen of him until then, especially when he starts making faces. It's also evident when he ends up laughing uncontrollably at the Monster of the Week farting.
  • Shown Their Work: His attitude in "Who's Crying Now?" is exactly how a lifelong martial arts student should react to bullies: His belief in respect for all, refusing to stoop to the bullies' level, not even to inform the bullies of his martial arts skills, and he immediately intervenes to defend someone who is unable to defend themselves. Also, the grab Troy uses at the start is a real and very painful jointlock, called Nikio.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Contrasting with his usual self, he acts this way towards his friends in "Spirit of the Tiger" after losing to the monster of the day. Though later he lightens up again.
  • Standardized Leader: Disciplined, strong, and the list just goes on.
  • Sword and Gun: Primarily his (and everyone else's) style of combat in Super Megaforce
  • Weapon of Choice: Dragon Sword.

Emma Goodall/ (Super) Megaforce Pink (Actress: Christina Masterson)

Jake Holling / Megaforce Black (Super Megaforce Green) (Actor: Azim Rizk)

  • Adaptational Badass: His character alone is already moreso than his Gokaiger counterpart Doc but there are numerous occasions where new fight footage has been filmed specifically for him to omit Doc's usual goofy antics.
  • The Big Guy: He's the athlete of the team and is very likely the strongest ranger in terms of physical strength.
  • Expy: Zack as an Indian guy.
  • Depending on the Writer: Due to the polar opposite personalities of his Sentai counterparts, he'll often switch between tough guy and clumsy guy.
  • Dogged Nice Guy:
  • Guns Akimbo: As Super Megaforce Green Ranger.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Noah.
  • I Know Madden Kombat: Can fight mooks with a soccer ball, the way it's intended to be used.
  • The Lancer: By way of being the goofy comedian in contrast to Troy's stoic attitude.
  • Land, Sea, Sky: Uses the element of Land alongside Gia.
  • Lovable Jock: Is chosen due to his athleticism and even uses his soccer skills against a group of mooks. Also fits here by way of being best buddies with nerdy Noah.
  • Number Two: Shared with Gia. Often leads the team in Troy's absence.
  • Out of Focus: For the first half of the season.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: Don't dismiss him as a class clown, due to his special talent on bringing people together with a laugh.
  • Unrequited Love: Has a crush on Gia.
    • From the look of things, however, it seems she's starting to return his affections.
  • Weapon of Choice: Snake Axe.

Gia Moran / (Super) Megaforce Yellow (Actress: Ciara Hanna)

Noah Carver / (Super) Megaforce Blue (Actor: John Mark Loudermilk)

  • Black and Nerdy: He's essentially the black Billy, so yeah.
  • Confusion Fu: When he first fights Loogies, he manages to knock many of them out unintentionally, while trying to evade them. Some of the hits were even delivered by his bag as it swung around.
  • Depending on the Writer: Due to the polar opposite personalities of his Sentai counterparts he'll often switch between smart guy and tough guy.
  • Dual Wielding: As Super Megaforce Blue Ranger. It seems a bit weird considering he was a long range fighter in Megaforce. It looks awesome, anyway.
  • Expy: Of Billy
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Is apparently going to be the one that builds the Rangers' cannon weapon in Super Megaforce.
  • Genius Bruiser: Just look at that swordplay.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Jake.
  • Land, Sea, Sky: Is the sole user of the Sea.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Becomes this in Super Megaforce, when he built his body, technique and mind to become a fierce swordsman. That training really paid off.
  • Lovable Nerd: Is chosen due to his dedication to science and unrivaled intelligence, though this has caused trouble as he is fascinated at first by the sight of the mooks while the civilians are running for their lives and observes a downed mook in his first unmorphed fight while the other rangers are fighting them off.
  • The Smart Guy: Comes with the territory of being a high school nerd.
  • Smart People Wear Glasses: Noah certainly does.
  • Training from Hell: Inflicts this on himself after feeling he was pushing the team back.
  • This Is the Part Where...: "This is the part where you say goodbye!"
  • Threatening Shark: Noah's Power Animal.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Unlike his Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger counterpart, Joe, Noah's sword training is because he feels like he's The Load of the team and trains himself to be much stronger. This pays off when he is able to wield five swords at once and take out a Monster of the Week in a one-on-one fight, when he was originally barely able to fight the Mooks.
  • Weapon of Choice: Shark Bowgun.

Robo Knight (Voice Actor: Chris Auer)

  • Aloof Ally: Doesn't quite realize that his mission is the same as the Rangers; as such, he refuses their offer to join forces. This is because his years of dormancy has had its toll on his memory, thus he doesn't even remember Gosei created him.
  • Badass: More than capable of holding his own in a fight, and is at first shown as being in a whole other league than the Rangers.
  • Expy: Basically a cross between RoboCop and the Blue Senturion (only played straight). His lack of concern for civilians in "Prince Takes Knight" also bring to mind the Magna Defender, but Robo Knight's apathy is more just following strict programming rather than being too caught up in revenge.
  • Friend to All Children: Robo Knight shows his more softer side around children.
  • Gaia's Vengeance: His primary directive is to eliminate threats to the environment.
  • Gatling Good: His Vulcan Cannon weapon attachment.
  • I Work Alone: He's pretty adamant about this.
  • Intrigued by Humanity: He's hinted to be steadily growing into this, as the Rangers teach him the good things of humanity.
  • King of Beasts: Has an obvious lion motif.
  • Macross Missile Massacre: Used in his Zord forms, both Lion Mechazord and Gosei Ground Megazord.
  • Noisy Robots: In the same way that RoboCop walks.
  • Robo Speak: Another RoboCop reference.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: Was sealed away by Gosei, who believes his reawakening was brought upon by the Earth itself.
  • Sixth Ranger: Joins the Rangers just after they start fighting the Toxic Mutants.
  • Straw Vulcan: Claims that it is illogical to take calculated risks in order to gain an advantage in battle, or even to plan in advance at all. One wonders if he even knows what "illogical" means.
  • Transforming Mecha: Borrows a page from Power Rangers Mystic Force and transforms into his own Zord.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: An In-Universe example after "End Game". Nobody knows where he is, and part of Troy's new motivations is to find and rescue Robo Knight.
    • Has become an issue of Chuck Cunningham Syndrome though Word of Dante states he'll be back.
    • By Silver Linings, Part 1 the rangers seemed to have forgotten he existed. Baffled that someone else is fighting the X borgs and not thinking this could be his work.
  • What Is This Thing You Call Dreaming?: His role in "Dream Snatcher" is all about this, especially when he sees Emma managing to fight off the Monster of the Week's influence with the sheer amount of dreams she has.

Orion / Super Megaforce Silver (Actor: Cameron Jebo)

  • Badass: Takes out an entire platoon of X-Borgs by himself and spent his entire debut episode basically doing their jobs for them.
  • Big "NO!": After seeing the Armada wipe out his planet.
  • Break the Cutie: Lost his family, friends and his entire planet from the Armada invasion.
  • Composite Character: He shares his ranger designation with Gai Ikari but his backstory is closer to Ahim and Don's with their planets having been destroyed by the Zangyack similar to his by the Armada. In fact him being an alien is closer to the core Gokaigers whereas Gai was the only one from Earth on the team.
  • Death by Origin Story: His entire planet.
  • Last of His Kind: The Armada attacked his home planet and seemingly killed everyone but him. He claims to be the only survivor.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: His fighting the Armada is one. When fighting the X-Borgs, he sounded absolutely pissed at the entire Armada for taking his homeworld.
  • Sixth Ranger: To the group in Super Megaforce, joining them just as the fight against the Armada gets more serious.

Gosei (Actor: Geoffrey Dolan)

  • Big Damn Heroes: Pilots the Gosei Ultimate Megazord's jet mode personally to save the Rangers from the Aurora Box.
  • Big Good: Gave the Rangers their powers and serves as a mentor figure to the Rangers, just like hi teacher.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Unlike his teacher, who sent the Rangers to go get their new powers and Zords when the last ones failed, Gosei had the audacity to have new powers and Zords set up for just an emergency.
    • Due to how the non-Power Rangers Sentai teams are being handled, he also didn't just settle for Earth Teams and got powers from Alien ranger teams.
  • Egocentric Team Naming: Not with the team name, but most of the Rangers' equipment is named after him. We're probably lucky the team isn't "Gosei Force".
  • Expy: Of Zordon.
  • A Form You Are Comfortable With: Outright admits that the giant face isn't his true form, just one the rangers would be more comfortable with.
  • Legacy Character: A direct successor to (and pupil of) Zordon, right down to the appearing as a giant face with a robot companion to be his hands.
  • Oh Crap: When the invasion begins, Gosei screams at the Rangers "Rangers, morph now! MORPH! MORPH! MORPH!"
  • The Mentor: He IS an Expy of Zordon, after all.
  • Took a Level in Badass: After spending most of the series in the standard mentor role, he pulls a Big Damn Heroes to save the Rangers from the Aurora Box, and then copilots the Gosei Ultimate Megazord alongside them, seemingly acting as its control system. While he does so remotely, it's still pretty freaking cool.

Tensou (Actor: Estevez Gillespie)

Mr. Burley (Actor: Ian Harcourt)

  • Conspiracy Theorist: Has a bulletin boards of pictures of the Loch Ness Monster, Bigfoot, and aliens. And the Toxic Mutants symbol.
  • Demoted to Extra: Subverted. Although he no longer appears in the opening credits in Super Megaforce he has played a larger role in the story.
  • Development Gag: Is named after Lee Burley, aka DarkBlaze, a longtime fan and member of the show's "Power Force" (a group of fans who function as combination consultants/street team.) Confirmed by him on Twitter during the premiere.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: In the vein of Professor Phenomenus. Exceptionally clumsy and admits to being rather forgetful.

Ernie (Actor: Shailesh Prajapati)

Rico the Robot

    Returning Characters 

Jayden Shiba / Red Samurai Ranger (Actor: Alex Hartman)

  • Cool Bike: Now has one similar to Ji's bike, which he is seen with at the end of his episode.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Considered this in-universe by Gia, whom comments on his looks
  • Stealth Hi/Bye: Pulls this off on the Rangers. First he shows up at Ernie's to help out Troy, Jake and Noah, and then he vanishes just before Gia and Emma arrive.

Mentor Ji (Actor: Rene Naufahu)

  • Cool Bike: As pointed out by Jake, he still has one.

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

  • Badass: Not only is he a former Red Ranger, but he is also so sure of himself that he got in a cage with a tiger as if it wasn't even there.
  • Big Brother Mentor: Becomes this to Jake and Emma, showing them how to use Animal Spirits.
  • Friend to All Living Things: Animals at least, as shown with the way he interacted with the tiger at the zoo.
  • Stealth Hi/Bye: Pulls the 'bye' off on Jake and Emma. They see him, but he randomly vanishes.

    Warstar 

Admiral Malkor (Voice Actor: Campbell Cooley)

  • Adaptation Expansion: In Goseiger, he (i.e. Mons Drake) was the Disc One Final Boss instead of the overall Big Bad.
  • Benevolent Boss: Unlike past Power Rangers villains, Malkor treats his subordinates with true respect and as equals (apart from when he's scolding them for failing their missions). Thus, all of them have Undying Loyalty towards him.
  • Big Bad: Leader of the Warstar.
  • Disc One Final Boss: Though to his credit, he does stick around far longer than his Super Sentai counterpart.
  • Genius Bruiser: Pre-release material paints him as one, saying he combines the intelligence of Vrak with strength greater than Creepox's. He's just too lazy to do anything with it.
  • Genre Savvy: It took all of two episodes for him to decide to deal with the Rangers before proceeding with his planned invasion.
    • Dangerously Genre Savvy: Calls the Zombats BEFORE being defeated, and also gives Vrak orders to crash the Warstar ship into the Earth as a back-up plan.
  • I Shall Taunt You: When he finally gets tired of the Orcus on His Throne approach and fights the Rangers, he spends a good deal of the fight taunting them whilst kicking their collective asses.
  • Large Ham: In true tradition of Power Rangers villains.
  • Orcus on His Throne: Lazily sits in his spaceship all day sending aliens to attack Earth.

Creepox (Voice Actor: Mark Mitchinson)

Vrak (Voice Actor: Jason Hood)

  • Adaptation Distillation: His Voluntary Shapeshifting is the way the writers found to deal with Buredoran's constant change of forms and allegiances throughout the source material in a shorter time span.
  • Back from the Dead: His Zombats revive defeated monsters. And he is brought back to life as a cyborg after his death at the hands of the Rangers.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Has shades of this.
    Vrak: (Creepox's simplistic plan of "send powerful monster to crush the heroes" fails): That worked so much better than my "complicated schemes".
  • The Dragon: He seems to be Malkor's right-hand alien.
    • Dragon-in-Chief: Because of Malkor's laziness, Vrak is the one who does most of the Warstar's work.
    • Dragon Ascendant: Comes back as a cyborg and the new Big Bad after Malkor bites the dust.
  • The Evil Genius: The Warstar's strategist. It was even his idea to study humans before annihilating them. In the words of Creepox, all he does is think of 'complicated schemes'.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Loses his memory upon being turned into a cyborg by Metal Alice. Regains it soon after, though.
  • Make My Monster Grow: Can do this with his seemingly infinite swarms of Zombats.
  • Manipulative Bastard: In "Who's Crying Now", it seemed like he WANTED Creepox to fight the Rangers for some reason, and even before that he kept goading him at several times to get him more frustrated with the Rangers. He also implied that he was trying to be this toward Creepox just before sending his Zombats to revive Creepox after the general loses a Single-Stroke Battle with Troy.
    • Cements himself as one when he manipulates the Toxic Mutants into joining the Warstar.
  • The Necromancer: Thanks to his Zombats, he can revive dead monsters, while also making them grow to the size of Megazords.
    • Magitek: He claims that they are 'advanced technology' also, implying that they are this.
  • Only Sane Man: The only villain so far that atcually takes the Rangers seriously, often lampshading how things always seem to turn to their favor.
  • Pyrrhic Victory: The Armada has arrived and begun its invasion come season's end, but Vrak is a damaged cyborg and would likely not be recognized by the Armada and is forced to go on the run.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Blue to Creepox's Red.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Claims to be alien royalty, and is the one who causes monsters to grow with his Zombats.
    • He is also not above taking the initiative and starting his own plans, like sending Virox to infect the Earth. Malkor didn't know what was going on until Virox and Vrak told him.
  • The Starscream: On top of already being the Dragon-in-Chief who puts most of the villains' plans into motion, claims to be this when he takes advantage of Admiral Malkor going into his coccoon state late in the season to further his schemes. That said, he never really takes any action against Malkor (though the Rangers don't give him much of a chance), and the fact that it takes so long for him to even claim to make a move ironically makes him much more loyal than his incredibly treacherous Goseiger counterpart.
  • This Cannot Be!: His reaction when the Rangers destroy both Malkor and the Warstar's ship in one final blast.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Can change from his usual blue-and-silver form to a form with red armor-and-claws known as his "Earth Armor".
    • Loses this after he is rebuilt by Metal Alice, and is currently still stuck in his Cyborg form in the aftermath of the Armada's invasion.
  • We Can Rebuild Him: Is easily reconfigured into a cyborg by Metal Alice after his death at the hands of the Rangers.
  • "Well Done, Son" Guy: Is apparently this to his family, the leaders of The Armada. He planned to betray Malkor all to impress them.

    Toxic Mutants 

Bigs (Voice Actor: Charlie McDermott)

  • Acrofatic: A large blob, but can move really fast.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Goofy and kinda weird-looking, but in his first appearance he easily beats Troy and Emma without taking a single hit.
  • Boomerang Bigot: Of sorts; both him and Bluefur are disgusted by the pollution caused by humanity, and wish to punish all mankind for it, despite the fact that they themselves were formed from it.
  • Demoted to Dragon: A Meta example, in Goseiger he was the second Big Bad, in Megaforce he's working for Malkor.
  • Lightning Bruiser: He can easily move faster than the Rangers.
  • Simple Staff: Carries one with him.

Bluefur (Voice Actor: Jay Simon)

    Vrak's Robots 

Metal Alice (Voice Actor: Sophie Henderson)

The Messenger (Voice Actor: Andrew Laing)

  • Demoted to Extra: In Tensou Sentai Goseiger, Robogog is the leader of the machine faction and Metal Alice's Master. His counterpart in Megaforce appears in the last two episodes as as an emissary for Vrak's family, mainly his brother the Prince (the villains for Super Megaforce) known as The Armada to announce that the invading force is approaching earth.
  • Foreshadowing: His main purpose is to foreshadow the arrival of The Armada and, possibly more important, Vrak's brother Prince Vekar.
  • No Name Given: He introduces himself, and is only ever referred to, as "a special envoy of the armada" or some other term or phrase to that effect.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Unfortunately so.

    The Armada 

Prince Vekar (Voice Actor: Stephen Butterworth)

  • Adaptational Badass: Much more competent and more of a threat compared to his Sentai counterpart, at least at the start. See Dangerously Genre Savvy below for an example of this.
  • Avenging the Villain: Decides to kill the Rangers and conquer the Earth to avenge the supposed death of his brother, Vrak... Though considering that he quickly brushed aside the possibility of him being alive, there might be more to this than just avenging Vrak.
  • Bad Boss: Was totally okay with turning one of his commanders into a suicide bomber, and didn't even tell the bomber about his plan beforehand.
  • Big Bad: Of Super Megaforce, considering he is the Armada's leader.
    • Bigger Bad: He and his Armada are this for Megaforce, especially in the season's later episodes.
    • Dragon-in-Chief: For his father, the Emperor.
  • Dangerously Genre Savvy: You know that one complaint to most villains? You know, "Just send one monster after another"? Vekar pulls off that on his first day on the job.
    • His next plan is 'try to nuke every major city on earth at once to crush mankind's spirit.' Destroying the controls rendered that useless, but if the missiles had launched it was unlikely the Rangers could have stopped every missile. The only other problem was setting the timer.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He has his moments, such as when talking to the Armada's monsters or when he finally confronts the Rangers in "Samurai Surprise".
    Vekar: It looks like I must do everything myself. Everyone prepare for immediate deployment! We leave in 5 minutes.
    Matacore: For Earth?
    Vekar: No, for Mars...Of course, for Earth!!
  • Dirty Coward: As soon as he's in the slightest bit of danger, he panics, starting with screaming "Not in the Face!!"
  • Foil: To Vrak, which makes sense since they're brothers. Vekar is much more irrational and crazy, whereas Vrak was composed and methodical. On the other hand, Vekar's plots are much darker and dangerous yet simply effective, compared to Vrak's which were admittedly weak in comparison but were more thought out and strategic.
  • Minor Injury Overreaction: He gets winged by the Rangers in "Samurai Surprise", shrieks in pain and immediately orders a retreat. He continues to moan and complain about the serious pain he's in through the next few scenes, even as the "injury" is confirmed to be little worse than a paper cut.
  • Never My Fault: Always blames his failure to kill the Rangers on other people, usually Damaras.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: Is crazy enough to lay waste to any planet in the way of his Armada and destroy major cities on the Earth, but also throws tantrums whenever he doesn't get his way.
  • Villainous Breakdown: When the Rangers take the fight to the Armada in episode 2, he absolutely flips out. This continues for the rest of the series.
  • "Well Done, Son" Guy: When an Elite Guard member shows up and implies that Vekar's father is disappointed in him, Vekar sets out to prove him wrong.

Damaras (Voice Actor: John Leigh)

  • Dangerously Genre Savvy: When he realizes the Rangers are looking for something, he instantly figures out it's a weapon or machine of some sort and sends out a monster to go track it down.
  • The Dragon: To Prince Vekar. He serves as his War Advisor and top General.

Levira (Voice Actor: Rebecca Parr)

  • The Dark Chick: The sole female among the Armada's leading generals.
  • Evil Genius: The Armada's technical genius and strategist.
  • Make My Monster Grow: Enlarges the Armada's fallen monsters with a machine she designed. It's also mentioned to be more effective than Vrak's Zombats were, and is capable of enlarging several monsters at once.
  • Pet the Dog: Despite being evil, she showed genuine sympathy to Vekar when talking about the now assumed to be deceased Prince Vrak and even said that they could search for any possibility that he is alive.

Argus (Voice Actor: Mark Wright)

  • Badass: Is the Armada's strongest swordsman, capable of almost killing a member of the Elite Guard on his own, something that took an entire team of Rangers to do.
  • The Brute: Is Prince Vekar's bodyguard and the Armada's strongest swordsman.
  • The Comically Serious: Especially serves this purpose when Vekar is having a fit.
  • Meaningful Name / Religious and Mythological Theme Naming: Named after the Greek giant with a hundred eyes that served the goddess Hera.
    • Irony: He only has one eye, but is given the name of a multi-eyed creature.
  • Literal-Minded: When Vekar made a comment about numbers playing a role in the invasion, Argus started counting.
  • The Quiet One: Doesn't speak much.
  • The Stoic: Always calm and barely expresses emotion, even when dealing with the Prince's tantrums.
  • Yes-Man: To Vekar. He was very likely programmed to be one.
