You think being a Power Ranger is all about roundhouse kicks and being a hero? It's also about hard work and doing what you're told.

Bridge Carson / B-Squad SPD Green Ranger | (Actor: Matt Austin)

Promoted to Blue Ranger in the season finale, then to Red, as shown in Power Rangers Operation Overdrive.

Wait. I ask long, drawn-out questions?

Elizabeth "Z" Delgado / B-Squad SPD Yellow Ranger | (Actress: Monica May)

Voiced by: Ayumi Kinoshita (Japanese dub)

It kind of gave me that warm and fuzzy feeling inside... that I hate so much.

  • Action Girl: Not afraid to get physical.
  • The Big Girl
  • Delinquent: At first.
  • Jumped at the Call: Unlike Jack, she wanted to join SPD the moment the offer was made.
  • Just Like Robin Hood: Along with Jack, they stole to give to the poor.
  • Me's a Crowd: Her genetic power.
  • One-Letter Name: Although "Z" is actually a nickname.
  • One Steve Limit: It's not the first time there's been a Delgado on the team. This led to a fun little bit of Fanon. When you factor in the show's timeline, Z's age, her eagerness to join the team and her similarities to the actors who played Danny and Kendall on Wild Force, you end up with a lot of fans who like to assume that Z is their daughter (which leaves the unfortunate question of how she ended up an orphan.)
    • Actually, and rather sadly, a simple answer is that someone tried to kidnap her for her powers, Danny and Kendall tried to save her and, well...
  • Platonic Life Partners: With Jack. They grew up on the streets together.
  • Spicy Latina: A very mild example but she is a little sassy.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Tomboy to Syd's Girly Girl.

Sydney "Syd" Drew / B-Squad SPD Pink Ranger | (Actress: Alycia Purrott)

Okay. I'm filthy, cranky, and my new shoes are trashed. Do you really wanna mess with me?

Commander Anubis "Doggie" Cruger / SPD Shadow Ranger | (Actor: John Tui)

Eventually promoted to Supreme Commander, as revealed in Power Rangers Operation Overdrive

Voiced by: Tetsu Inada (Japanese dub)

You have taken what was dearest to me, Benaag - but that has only made me stronger. I am SHADOW RANGER!

  • The Ace: As the Shadow Ranger, he easily out classes the B-Squad in combat.
  • A Father to His Men: The Rangers definitely come to see him as this, especially when he joins them in the field. As the series goes on, he pulls back somewhat in order to give the Rangers more independence, just as a real father would.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: He's not afraid to lead his troops in combat, although as the series progresses, he accompanies them less to give them more independence in battle.
  • Archenemy: He and Gruumm are this to each other.
  • Berserk Button: He doesn't like people mocking his dead comrades or his lost homeworld. It took great restraint from laying a hand on Commander Fowler when he does this.
    • Do NOT hurt his Rangers. Due to the above, he will take it very personally.
  • Big Good: To the Earth branch of the SPD (and the SPD as a whole as of Operation Overdrive)
  • Commanding Coolness: His rank is "Commander".
  • Cool Sword: His shadow saber.
  • Good Is Not Nice: Cruger is a no-nonsense leader of a large organization, he doesn't hold back when he has to lay down the law.
  • Heroic B.S.O.D.: Prior to becoming Shadow Ranger, he stays out of open combat situations due to losing his troops on planet Cyrius.
  • Heroic Dog: Yes, he's humanoid, but he's still a canine, so it counts.
  • It Has Been an Honor: He states this word-for-word in the last episode when he and the Rangers are powerless and surrounded by Grumm's minions. Fortunately, Piggy has pulled a Heel–Face Turn by then, and shows up to rescue them.
  • Last of His Kind: Or so he thinks
  • Magic Feather: Doggie gives Jack his Shadow Saber in order to fend off a Master Swordsman Monster of the Week. Turns out it was a standard issue practice sword in disguise.
  • Master Swordsman: He's also teaching Jack some of his skills.
  • Meaningful Name: His real name is Anubis and he's a...
  • One-Man Army: His debut as the Shadow Ranger had Doggie fighting off one hundred Mooks solo, and wasting all of them.
  • Papa Wolf: Endangering his Rangers is a very bad idea.
  • Petting Zoo People: Sort of of a dog man, if dogs had blue scales.
  • Sixth Ranger / Aloof Ally: Though he's less active alongside the rangers after Omega joins. The latter is justified since he doesn't want the rangers to depend on him so much.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Just a reminder: Kruger, with a K, is his Dekaranger counterpart.

Sam / SPD Omega Ranger | (Actor: Aaron James Murphy; voice actor: Brett Stewart)

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/prspd_rg_sam.jpg
Voiced by: Tomokazu Yoshida (Japanese dub)

  • Composite Character: In Dekaranger, the kid with teleporting powers and the Sixth Ranger were separate characters.
  • Commuting on a Bus: See below.
  • Demoted to Extra: He was demoted compared to his counterpart DekaBreak from the source material. Disney forced a Fake Shemp situation that the writers didn't want to deal with, and they wouldn't have included Omega Ranger at all if they weren't stuck with so much DekaBreak Stock Footage.
  • Future Badass: He's from the future.
  • Mysterious Protector: At first. It took the Rangers a while to find out he'd been around for some time.
  • Power Fist: His signature weapon.
  • Set Right What Once Went Wrong: Was sent back in time to stop SPD from being defeated by Devastation to avert his Bad Future. Unlike the Blue Senturion, he actually succeeds in his first appearance. He just continues fighting alongside the present-day Rangers until Nova comes to pick him up.
  • Sixth Ranger: Seventh to be exact. The first official Seventh Ranger.
  • Smug Super: Starts out as this, as his tech is miles beyond what the other SPD characters have.

     Their Friends 

Boom | (Actor: Kelson Henderson)

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/boom_6.jpg
Voiced by: Yasuhiro Takato (Japanese dub)

I'd be psyched if I were the Red Ranger!
You'd be psyched if you were the Pink Ranger...!
(Beat) True...

  • Ascended Fanboy: He's a fanboy, all right, but the "Ascended" part is averted; he's one of the few cast members that doesn't get a morpher at some point.
  • Badass Normal: Despite getting kicked out of the academy, not being a Ranger and never showing superhuman abilities, Boom proves his skills during the final battle with a Rousing Speech and manages to get through without a scratch on him. Of note is the fact that in the first episode, he was throwing around the three best students at the academy like they were rag-dolls during a training simulation.
  • Rousing Speech: Delivers one before the final battle, convincing everyone to stay and fight. Oddly enough, this speech has more of a Go Ye Heroes, Go and Die vibe, yet no one runs away after he gives it.
  • The Chew Toy: He tends to be on the receiving end of Kat's experiments, regardless of whether or not it was intended to do something painful to him.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: From start to finish, though he does have his moments.

Dr. Kat Manx / SPD Kat Ranger | (Actress: Michelle Langstone)

Tell me I didn't just fry the Quantum Enhancer. TELL ME I didn't just fry the Quantum Enhancer!

R.I.C. (Robotic Interactive Canine)

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

  • BFG: He turns into one!
  • Big, Friendly Dog: Robotic version.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: At first.
  • Do-Anything Robot: Even after he was rebuilt, he had a list of auxiliary functions a mile long.
  • Heroic Dog: He's a heroic robot dog.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: He Gets Better though.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: They wanted to junk R.I.C., but rebuilt him instead. Besides the help and saves he gave throughout the series, in the final episodes, summoning R.I.C. freed Kat and Boone after Broodwing's takeover of the S.P.D. Base/Zord, enabling them to shutdown power to the Zord, enabling B-Squad to overcome A-Squad, Broodwing, and Broodwing's Generals. The outcome of the series rested on loyalty to a dog they wanted to put down.
  • Robot Dog: He's a robot and shaped and programmed as dog.
  • Team Pet: To SPD.
  • We Can Rebuild Him: After his damaged saving Syd, he was to be thrown away. Syd was too grateful that she got Bridge and Boom to rebuild him. He becomes both a finishing weapon and Jack's Battlizers.

You belong to me! Say it! Say it like your freedom depends on it!

Supreme Commander Fowler "Birdy" | (Voice actor: Paul Norell)

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/commander_birdie.jpg
Voiced by: Yutaka Nakano (Japanese dub)

I still think there are certain areas in which S.P.D. could be improved...like, for example, the Supreme Commander staying out of his best commander's business.

Sophie | (Actress: Natacha Hutchison)

You returned with nothing. Therefore, you shall be nothing. [..] I need another.

Mora / Morgana | (Actress: Olivia James-Baird / Josephine Davidson)

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/morgana_fight_mode.jpg
Voiced by: Shizuka Ito (both forms, Japanese dub)

  • Ambiguously Human: She looks human, though she's capable of bringing monsters to life and energy blasts. Although given the season's setting, she could be an alien.
  • Art Initiates Life: Can create monsters from her drawings.
  • Ascended Extra: Morgana's Dekaranger counterpart was simply one of the three villains of DekaBreak's introductory arc (explaining why she was active when Shorty and Devastation showed up) and later showed up in the Abaranger crossover. She's one of the core villains in SPD.
  • Bratty Half-Pint: As Mora, though she retains this personality as Morgana.
  • The Baroness: Morgana fits the sexpot variety, but for some reason sees herself as ugly and wants to remain young.
  • Creepy Child: As Mora.
  • Dark Action Girl: As Morgana.
  • The Dragon: Grumm's primary henchwoman throughout the series.
  • Dropped A Bridge On Her: She shows up in one scene in the last episode and is arrested, then not spoken of or referenced again.
  • Enfant Terrible: As Mora, displaying a total lack of regard for anyone else and treating people as toys.
  • Growing Up Sucks: So much that it is used as a punishment.
  • Not Even Bothering with the Accent: Compared to the other actors, her New Zealand accent really stands out.
  • Older Than They Look: Justified as Mora is actually an adult woman who wants to remain young.
  • Psychopathic Womanchild: As Morgana she retains much of Mora's childishness and all her sociopathy.
  • Tattooed Crook: She has a purple lightning bolt tattoo under her left eye. It's significance and how she got are never brought up.
  • Working for a Body Upgrade: Well, she considers it an upgrade.

Broodwing | (Voice actor: Jim McLarty)

Voiced by: Masami Iwasaki (Japanese dub)

That was not a very clever plan you had, Broodwing. If the Rangers find out about you. It may jeopardize my mission.
Understood your excellence. I'm just trying to make a living.
I do A LOT of business with you, did you show no allegiance? The highest bidder gets your devotion. I should end our relationship now… for your betrayal.
Or you could just pay me more.

Omni / The Magnificence | -(Voice actor: Geoff Dolan)-

Click for SPOILERS 

  • The Corrupter: Well, Mora was already evil, but exposure to Omni's gases made her lose interest in her childish ideals, even tossing away her doll.
  • Giant Space Flea from Nowhere He doesn't show up at all until the 35th (out of 38) episode
  • Greater-Scope Villain: It only appears in 3 episodes and speaks in 2 of them, but it is Grumm's master and all of the plans were to turn Grumm's ship into a new body for it.
  • Walking Spoiler: Only appears in 3 episodes, but plays an important role over all in the final episodes.

What have I done? I'm a filthy, slime-ridden, low-life, worm-eating vermin! All right, so I was that before I betrayed the Rangers.
