Nick Russell / Red Mystic Ranger | (Actor: Firass Dirani)
I don't know about you guys, but I'm feeling the magic.
Arbitrary Skepticism: In the premiere, he witnesses (among other things) transportation to an alternate dimension, hordes of the undead, and perfectly normal people harnessing the elements... but believing in magic? Pfft. No way.
Badass Biker: Introduced riding into town on a bike and the first to volunteer to go into the haunted woods.
The Chosen One: "The Light". He's this because his parents are the greatest mage and warrior of their generation.
What the Hell, Hero?: In the finale, Nick is called out by his teammates when he decides to give up, after being Curb Stomped by the Master and watching his dad's murder. It didn't help that they had to pry it out of him since, when asked, he didn't even bother to give them a clear answer.
Worthy Opponent: To Koragg. Koragg's final battle prior to making a permanent Heel-Face Turn to become Leanbow once more was with him, and he calls him this word-for-word.
Charlie "Chip" Thorn / Yellow Mystic Ranger | (Actor: Nic Sampson)
A parallel dimension outside of Briarwood? Do we live in a great city or what?
He's read every book and comic, and played every video game in the super hero genre.
He's also a knight in training.
Badass Bookworm: Admit it, he doesn't look like he'd be the first to lay the smack down on mooks, being a scrawny looking geek, but he quickly took to being a Ranger.
Fun Personified: Chip is the only person in this show who doesn't take himself and the setting too seriously.
Genre Savvy: The only one not fooled by Vida's vampire transformation or shapeshifters with gifts, or other dangers. Though there was that one Idiot Ball where he opened a mysterious vase that appeared out of nowhere.
Woman in White: A Big Good version. She wears white, she's definitely important to the plot, and has experienced death from all sides of her life.
Clare Langtree | (Actress: Antonia Prebble)
The Apprentice: Udonna's. She's promoted to full sorceress by the end.
Barrier Maiden: It's up to her to keep the gate to the underworld closed; she's also the key to opening it.
Book Ends: In her first appearance, she has a lot of difficulty with an invisibility spell. At the end of the season, she effortlessly performs it successfully.
Butt Monkey: When her spells malfunction, which is often, it's funny.
Character Development: In a series where a lot of the characters don't change that much, Clare had the clearest character arc, going from the clumsy girl who turned herself into a sheep all the way into the next guardian of rootcore when Udonna takes a leave of absence at the end of the series.
Cute Clumsy Girl: Her spells malfunctioning only adds to her mundane clumsiness and makes her more endearing.
Missing Mom: Her mother died sealing away the forces of darkness during the Great Battle.
Parental Substitute: To Fireheart, the last dragon. Clare hatched his egg and Fireheart immediately referred to her as "Momma." Clare is henceforth shown acting like a mother to him, even swaddling the little dragon up in a blanket and playing peek-a-boo.
Super-Powered Alter Ego: She's far competent as the Gate Keeper, but its hardly an alter ego as everyone knows her.
Took a Level in Badass: Temporarily with her mother's powers as the gatekeeper, then far more permanently as she grew thanks to her training and growing confidence in herself.
Phineas | (Actor: Kelson Henderson)
Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Despite his strange and offputting behavior, his advice is usually good and he can definitely kick ass when he has to.
Chekhov's Gunman: Appears to be a pointless funny guy, but he's crucial to Nick's backstory and helps out a number of times.
Parental Substitute: To Fireheart, the last dragon. When Jenji abandoned Fireheart in the woods, Phineas found him and took him in. When Fireheart referred to him as "Daddy", Phineas lit up with happiness.
Motor Mouth: His stories just go on and on and on, and when he's talking about anything else it's on and on and on...
Sealed Good in a Can: His lamp. He can leave for a few hours at a time (and if not for a curse, could leave permanently any time he wanted), but its more or less a magic life support machine keeping said curse at bay, so he needs to spend most of his time in it.
Schmuck Bait: It's just a simple box, it won't do nothing except suck him into an black hole. Daggeron tried to warn him.
Noble Demon: Despite initial identification as evil she only comitted one deed in the series that can be called "evil" and that was trying to get Nick fired. When asked if she was good or evil she replied, "A little bit of both".
Noble Demon: Claims to be evil but never delivers more than a butt kicking before leaving.
Sealed Evil in a Can: Rita Repulsa's very line is echoed by his first line (He actually says "After all these years, I'm free," but the similarity was close enough that many fans were confused into thinking the backstory was set ten thousand years previous, when it actually appears to have been more like 20).
Evil Plan: A strange example as he has a plan (see below) but does nothing for the bulk of the series. The Evil Plans of his minions are what drive the conflict.
Greater Scope Villain: While he's the only villain to last from beginning to end, he spends all but the finale in a pit or a prisoner of Leanbow doing absolutely nothing. It's almost like he's some symbolic figure head that can't do anything. In the finale, he proves his power, but everything leading up to the finale is driven by other lesser Arc Villains.
The Master: Of the underworld and demons and "bad" magic. Though the Mystic Mother says he's the master of "nothing".
Goth Girls Know Magic: She's a sorceress with a gothic appearance, and as Nikki her appearance is quite gothy.
Our Vampires Are Different: She looks like a humanoid monster but otherwise fits the tradition; conversion by biting, transforms into a bat, etc.
Parental Neglect: She might be ok with her daughter helping with her schemes against the rangers, but she cares more about evil than her, so when Lee Lee get's bored of being evil, their relationship turns far more frosty.
