Scott Truman / Ranger Operator Series Red | (Actor: Eka Darville)
"Here we go, people. Let's bring the pain."
The leader of the team, Scott is a former Air Force pilot who longs for the approval of his overbearing father, Colonel Truman. Scarred by the death of his older brother, Marcus, Scott is often doubtful of his ability to lead the Rangers to victory, though he doesn't let that stop him.
Badass: One of the best fighters on the team. There's a reason he's in charge.
Flynn McAllistair / Ranger Operator Series Blue | (Actor: Ari Boyland)
"This is how we do it GLASGOW STYLE!"
A former police officer, firefighter, and foreign aid worker of Scottish descent, Flynn has a pathological need to help people that often gets him into trouble. As the team mechanic he's responsible for keeping their gear working, and has been known to improvise solutions to a number of problems.
Genius Bruiser: He's the best with machinery and tools among the Rangers and is a big, tough brawler in a fight.
Genre Savvy: Not to Ziggy's extent, but very aware of the tropes nonetheless.
Running Gag: He never gets to drink a smoothie, does he?
Samaritan Syndrome: His previous jobs all revolved around helping people, but his uncompromising principles always led to him getting fired. The turning point was the incident that led to him saving the bus full of refugees seen in the pilot episode.
"Well Done, Son" Guy: Though not to Scott's extent, and only as a kid. Upon arriving at Corinth, his dad is fully supportive of him.
Summer Landsdown / Ranger Operator Series Yellow | (Actress: Rose McIver)
"I don't care where you came from. I want to know where you're going."
A spoiled rich girl who barely made it into Corinth alive, Summer experienced an epiphany and decided that she wanted to help people. She's determined to save Dillon, despite his own strong objections, and frequently plays the mediator between he and Scott.
Fair Weather Friend: Was surrounded by these before the Venjix attack. Special mention must go to the one who threw her off a moving truck, then expected to still be best friends a year later, insisting that she knew Summer would be fine.
Dillon / Ranger Operator Series Black | (Actor: Dan Ewing)
"You guys are the answer. I'm just looking for the question."
A cyborg with amnesia and something of an attitude problem, Dillon is recruited into the Rangers as part of a work-release program from Corinth's jail. He wants to find out more about his past, has a mild rivalry with Scott, a fair amount of Unresolved Sexual Tension with Summer, and a close friendship with Ziggy.
Badass: After the first few episodes, it's hard not to think he's a badass. Especially since the show goes through every length to tell you so
Badass Driver: "If that thing has a steering wheel, I can drive it." He makes it through the barricade in broad daylight during the first episode, something Ziggy thought was impossible, and later does it again with Tenaya providing cover fire.
Ziggy Grover / Ranger Operator Series Green | (Actor: Milo Cawthorne)
"In times like this, there is one question that needs to be answered: are we, or are we not, the good guys?"
An ex-mobster with a streak of bad luck, Ziggy becomes friends with Dillon after he tried to rob the brooding Black Ranger in the pilot. Hired to find a Green Ranger candidate, he ends up putting the morpher on himself to protect it from Tenaya 7. Has a complicated relationship with Dr. K.
Butt Monkey: Poor Ziggy. It seems that barely an episode can go by without the Green Ranger totally embarrassing himself in some way. Best reflected by his first ever morph. Previous rangers, whether they Jumped at the Call, were thrown in the cockpit or even stole their powers, always morphed with a fair amount of dignity and grace the first time. What's Ziggy's first line upon realising what he has become?
Ziggy: Woah! I'm a Power Ranger! I don't wanna be a Power Ranger! I do not want to be a Power Ranger!
He then proceeds to get kicked all over the place.
Giving the Sword to a Noob: The Rangers' morphers are designed to be operable only by the first person to use it, as it recorded his DNA as a security lock. Because of the situation, it was he or one of the bad guys, so...
Improv Fu: The Plucky Comic Relief became a Power Ranger by accident and out of desperation so he had no qualifications or skills to actually be a good fighter. Instead he mostly runs around a fight scene dodging enemies or using nearby props as weapons and ways to protect himself. He gets better at hand to hand throughout the series though.
Teleport Spam: His suit ability. Used primarily for laughs though.
Gem and Gemma / Ranger Operator Series Gold and Silver | (Actors: Mike Ginn and Li Ming Hu)
"It's Boom time!"
The former test pilots for the Ranger gear, Gem and Gemma are a pair of utterly demented twins who narrowly escaped the destruction of the facility where they were raised. Equipped with the prototype Gold and Silver suits, and a love of explosions, they wage a private war against Venjix before being recruited partway through the show.
"I've made errors. But I've also learned that even the most flawed human is better than the most perfect machine."
A socially crippled genius raised in a secret government facility, Dr. K is the designer of the Ranger technology, and has her own, personal reasons for wanting to see Venjix destroyed. Not particularly trusting, she has a somewhat antagonistic relationship with her team, especially Ziggy.
Irony: Somewhat. When she was growing up in Alphabet soup, she was told that she was allergic to the sun and could never go outside. This was a lie to make sure she never escaped. However K. is never seen outside without a cloak, the result of her having very sensitive and fair skin from being cooped inside up by a lie. The lie caused the truth in a way.
Dr. K: The material is a self-assembling nanofiber formed with an inter-cellular shape memory alloy.
Schoolkids on a field trip get a Q&A session with the Rangers, and K has to be restrained when the S-word comes up.
She is very insistent on terminology. During the Q&A session she holds with her Series Operators in the beginning of "Ranger Blue", Scott asks her about the eyes in front of their Zords. She tells them that they are not eyes, but that they are actually optical field scanning sensors for their cockpit's displays. But, of course, this doesn't go around the fact that...
Dillon: They look like eyes! Ziggy: Big, googly anime eyes.
Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: She's the one who developed the Venjix virus albeit just for the building she was in and nothing beyond that. But in truth this should extend to the organization that was looking after her. As if they had just let her get out once in a while. She would never have made it in the first place and even then should've at least let her install the firewall. They knew what she was a genius so they should've at least heeded her words.
Scott's father and the leader of Corinth's defence forces, Colonel Truman is a paranoid, suspicious man who has no desire to ever leave the dome, preferring to wait Venjix out. He has a difficult relationship with his son and Dr. K. Has the distinction of being one of the few competent muggles in the franchise.
Badass Normal: More than capable of taking out a few Grinders, even when armed only with the standard laser pistols given to the guards.
Too Dumb to Live: ONLY regarding Dr. K. He tries to arrest her, the only person in the world who fully understand the Ranger technology and therefore, the only person capable of stopping Venjix, after discovering she created it.
Ascended Extra: Despite not being listed as a main character, Hicks has a considerable amount of screentime throughout the series. Especially when it's revealed that he was a Half-Human Hybrid under Venjix's control since day one.
A lethal computer virus that gained sentience and proceeded to Take Over the World...after reducing the human population to a few million. He's now out to finish the job by annihilating Corinth and the Power Rangers.
Bad Boss: To the point where he'll order the murder of loyal minions for no real reason. This ultimately costs him the war when his plan to allow Tenaya 15 to execute Kilobyte convinces Kilobyte to try and kill her first, leading to Dillon's saving of Tenaya.
Sealed Evil in a Can: It began its existence more or less as a sealed evil. The program for the sentient, self-replicating, computer virus was initially created and contained in a single laptop. That is until Dr. K, in a attempt to escape her circumstances, decided to infect Alphabet Soup's computer network with the virus but was stopped short from installing a firewall to prevent further spread. The result was an infection of nearly every computer system connected to the internet and the destruction of nearly the entire human race.
It is hinted that it also becomes one of these again, as opposed to being destroyed, at the end of RPM with the Venjix Palace music playing as the camera focuses in on Ranger Red's morpher with a blinking red light.
Too Dumb to Live: In the final episode, after Gem and Gemma destroy the Control Tower's supports it takes about 45 seconds for it to fall from the roof of the dome to the ground, he just stands directly under the tower preparing for his demise when all he needed to do was survive it was to simply move out of the way, It's rather unbelievable that this was the being that destroyed the Earth yet he can't even see danger coming from a mile away.
Of course, this ends up being a Subverted Trope in the end as Dr. K shuts the briefcase containing the Ranger Series morphers...with a familiar red glow emitting from Ranger Series Red's morpher, and with his leitmotif playing softly in the background.
General Shifter (Voice actor: Mark Mitchinson)
One of Venjix's generals, his job is to design new attack bots. When Tenaya 7 frames him for trying to murder Venjix, Shifter is exiled and forced to act on his own, vowing vengeance against Venjix and the Rangers alike.
A cyborg built for infiltration, Tenaya 7 is Venjix's right-hand woman for most of the show, commanding the Grinders, carrying out his plans, and trying to hide her frustration with Shifter and Crunch.
The Dragon: Tenaya 7 quickly takes this position after she's built, only to lose it to Kilobyte in the aftermath of her failures and his triumphal return. As Tenaya 15 she's on the verge of regaining her post, only for Kilobyte to try and kill her off.
"You put a human against a machine, the machine will win every time."
One of Venjix's most trusted generals, he was believed to have been lost during the war. He returns two thirds of the way through the series, and challenges Tenaya for the position of Venjix's right-hand robot, winning out. Arrogant and highly protective of his position, he is nonetheless one of the Rangers' most capable adversaries.
Adaptation Expansion: RPM makes him a major villain, as opposed to his Go-Onger counterpart which only appeared for three episodes.
Curb-Stomp Battle: He's introduced giving one to Tenaya 7 and delivers a brutal one to the entire Ranger team during their first battle. During "Danger & Destiny" he inflicts another one on Tenaya 15 and Dillon, nearly killing them before he's fatally interrupted.
Sword Beam: His special attack projects beams from his scimitar.
Fresno Bob | (Actor: John Summer)
The head of the Scorpion Cartel, and one of the most powerful mobsters in Corinth, Fresno Bob has it in for Ziggy, who once robbed him of five million dollars worth of medical supplies. Ruthless and uncaring, he is willing to cut deals with anyone if it will get him his revenge.
