  • Asian Airhead: Type 2; just try to deny it. Possibly the only male example in the entire franchise.
  • Blow You Away: His Drive Vortex
  • Dating Catwoman: Subverted; he falls in love with a girl named Mira who seems okay at first, but it isn't until later that it is revealed she's actually the villainous Miratrix.
  • In a Single Bound: His civilian power lets him jump several feet in the air.
  • The Quiet One: Dax is a man of few words, but when he does speak, it's hard not to pay attention to him. Or at times, chuckle.

Veronica "Ronny" Robinson / Yellow Overdrive Ranger | (Actress: Caitlin Murphy)

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/proo_rg_ronny.jpg

  • Competition Freak: Ronny is a race car driver, so she's naturally competitive and a bit of a showoff. On the other hand, she's still a better team player than Will, so she could be worse in working with the other rangers.
  • Super Speed: Her civilian power, which fits her love of speed.
  • Tomboy: In sharp, almost polar, contrast to her Sentai counterpart, Natsuki.
  • Tomboyish Name: Short for "Veronica"
  • Wolverine Claws: Her Drive Claws are this and an Improbable Weapon, given that they're inspired by a bulldozer.
  • Wrench Wench: She's not afraid to get dirty and covered in oil when fixing the zords.

Rose Ortiz / Pink Overdrive Ranger | (Actress: Rhoda Montemayor)

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/proo_rg_rose.jpg

  • Arbitrary Skepticism: In "Pirate in Pink", she bemoans the Rangers wanting to find a ghost because they don't exist. She seems to forget a certain Sentinel Knight from the first episode.

Tyzonn / Mercury Overdrive Ranger | (Actor: Dwayne Cameron)

    Their Friends 

Andrew Hartford | (Actor: Rod Lousich)

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/andrew_hartford.jpg

  • They Call Me Mister Tibbs: Prefers "Andrew" to "Mr. Hartford".
  • Rebuilt Pedestal: Mack loses admiration for his father in "Things Not Said" when he turns out to be an android and his father lied about his past. Not helped is that in the next episode, when trying to mend his damaged relationship with his son results in his commenting Mack seemed "almost human" when he became a ranger. Making this worse, Mack started referring to his father as "Mr. Hartford" and started to think he'd replace or reprogram him. However, in the finale "Crown and Punishment, when Flurious threatens Mack in exchange for the Corona Aurora, Hartford surrenders it. Realizing his father really does care for him, Mack reaffirms his love for him and calls his "Dad" again.
  • Truly Single Parent: Working as an archaeologist, scientist, billionaire and owning a movie studio, it's no wonder he had no time to meet the right woman.
  • Walking Spoiler: Responsible for Mack's Walking Spoiler secret.
  • What Measure Is a Non-Human?: Averted; loves Mack despite his origins.

Spencer | (Actor: David Weatherley)

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/oo_spencer.jpg

  • Intergenerational Friendship: Because the two of them often worked on the zords together, he and Rose get along pretty well.
  • The Jeeves: The Hartford's butler.
  • Master of Disguise: Even capable of disguising himself as Ronny to fool a perverted Loki.
  • Mentor Archetype: While Mr. Hartford is the one who united the group and gives them their mission, Spencer is the one who helps rangers deal with their issues and offers wisdom to snap them out of it.
  • Number Two: While Hartford might be the mission coordinator, Spencer was always there to help with the running of the base.
  • Servile Snarker
    Rose: You're the best, Spencer!
    Spencer: If only my paycheck reflected that.

    Their Enemies 

Flurious | (Actor: Gerald Urquhart)

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/oo_flurious.jpg

  • An Ice Person: Pretty obvious when you see him.
  • Badass Moustache: One that looks to be made of ice.
  • Cain and Abel: With Moltor; which ultimately results in Flurious killing him
  • Canon Immigrant: He was created exclusively for the series. His indirect Japanese counterpart's form is used when Flurious wears the Corona Aurora.
  • Death by Adaptation: His counterpart Gaja was one of the few Sentai villains to actually survive the series. Flurious isn't so lucky.
  • The Chessmaster: His strategy of sitting back and manipulating from the shadows worked out in his favour, as all of the other villains were destroyed and he was the last man standing.
  • Final Boss: The last villain to face the rangers after the others are defeated.
  • One-Winged Angel: When he finally gets his hands on the Corona Aurora.
  • Orcus on His Throne: Which actually works for him - the rest of the Big Bad Ensemble gets picked off one by one, while he stays safe in his fortress. And, once the rangers have collected all the jewels of the Corona Aurora he sweeps in and steals them all at once, allowing him to become the Final Boss of the series.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Moltor's red.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: He was sealed inside a lifeless planet, one of extreme cold, when he tried to grab the season's MacGuffin, and freed when said MacGuffin was discovered on Earth.

Miratrix | (Actress: Ria Vandervis)

  • Adaptational Villainy: Compared to perky Punch Clock Villain Shizuka, she's noticeably more evil.
  • Airplane Arms: When carrying her swords.
  • And I Must Scream: Her ultimate fate, imprisoned in the same jewel that Kamdor was originally in.
  • The Baroness: The Sexpot variety, for Dax and Will anyway.
  • Canon Immigrant: She was created exclusively for the series, yet has similar role to her indirect counterpart in Boukenger.
  • Dark Action Girl: A female villain who is also a good fighter.
  • I Never Said It Was Poison: Her plan in "Heart of Blue" was ruined because she unintentionally mentioned the jewels with Dax, but he never told her his mission.
  • Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal / The Starscream: After Kamdor berates her and calls her worthless, she decides to go this route. Unfortunately, it doesn't last long. See And I Must Scream.
  • The Mole: Faked a Meet Cute with Dax to infiltrate the mansion and get her hands on a scroll to lead to one of the jewels.
  • Ninja: Like her master Kamdor.
  • '20s Bob Haircut: Middle of the season, she replaces her old hairstyle with a bobcut, though her hair is still long because of a ponytail in the back. (It's said this change was because her actress didn't like the previous hairstyle)
