Jack Landors / B-Squad SPD Red Ranger | (Actor: Brandon Jay McLaren)
Voiced by: Ryuji Sainei (Japanese dub)
Sky. Heroes come in all colors.
- Delinquent: At first.
- Guns Akimbo
- The Hero: Leader of the B squad rangers.
- Intangible Man: His genetic ability.
- I Just Want to Be Normal: Which is why he's retired once the Big Bad is defeated.
- Just Like Robin Hood: He steals things to give it to poor people.
- Law of Chromatic Superiority: As usual, he gets the Battlizer.
- Platonic Life-Partners: With Z.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Sky's blue.
- Refusal of the Call: He was a much harder sell than Z.
- Rookie Red Ranger: To Sky's frustration. Justified, as Sky, who was first in line to be leader, failed a Secret Test of Character, and Doggy quickly realized that had he been made leader, he would've gone on an ego trip.
- Trading Bars for Stripes: He was a criminal captured by Sky, Bridge, and Syd before being recruited.
Schuyler "Sky" Tate / B-Squad SPD Blue Ranger | (Actor: Chris Violette)
Promoted to Red Ranger in the season finale, then to Commander of the Earth forces, as revealed in Power Rangers Operation Overdrive
Voiced by: Tsuyoshi Hayashi (Japanese dub)
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.
- Barrier Warrior: His genetic ability.
- By-the-Book Cop: Very much.
- Character Development: Perhaps the best developed of the rangers this series, as he goes from something of a Jerk Jock to a more pure hero.
- Defrosting Ice King: Somewhat. It takes a lot of work.
- Deadpan Snarker: Has his moments towards the end of the series.
- Hard Work Hardly Works: Justified, because despite all of his hard work his arrogance made unsuitable to be the Red Ranger. A chunk of Sky's character development is losing that arrogance.
- The Lancer: And he didn't like it to be his role at first.
- Leader Wannabe: He achieves his goal in the finale.
- Meaningful Name: He's the Blue Ranger. Ironically, all he ever wanted was to be Red. It goes into Fridge Brilliance territory when we realize that the Sky is Blue during the day, then becomes Red by the end of the day (The end of the series). Then, by night (some point post-series), it becomes black, matching the Commander's longcoats.
- Military Brat: His dad was a fallen SPD Red Ranger whose battle suit resembles Time Force Red Ranger.
- Quickly Demoted Leader: Thanks to failing a test of character Cruger gave him.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Jack's red.
- Tall, Dark, and Snarky
- The Stoic
- Supporting Protagonist: Officially, Jack is the Protagonist, but Sky shares the same status as the former.
- "Well Done, Son!" Guy: He wants to live up to his father's legacy.
- When He Smiles: Invoked by Syd in "Walls."
- You Killed My Father: His father is killed in the line of duty by an alien criminal.
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.
Voiced by: Yousuke Ito (Japanese dub)
Wait. I ask long, drawn-out questions?
- Adorkable: He's the most energetic, friendly and quirky of the B Squad.
- Bat Deduction: As highlighted in "A-Bridged," he was right all along. It was just the way he went about investigating the suspect and gathering clues was... unique. Of course, what the other Rangers consider "unique" others would call actual investigative and detective techniques.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander: His crime-solving methods are certainly... unorthodox.
- Composite Character: Keeping the comparison to the source material, Bridge has Umeko's quirkiness, Jasmine's psychic abilities and Sen-chan's odd investigation methods (Up to Eleven) and Thinking Pose de aru.
- Memetic Hand Gesture: He is physically compelled to wiggle his fingers when saying "Buttery." He can't stop himself, even when he tries.Sky: He can't help himself. It's ingrained in his cellular makeup.Bridge: That's ridiculous. I can say "buttery" without - (wiggles fingers)
- Motor Mouth: When he really gets into his rambling.
- Plucky Comic Relief: A tradition held by most green rangers.
- Psychic Powers: His genetic power is Aura Vision.
- Putting On My Thinking Cap: Headstands
- Real Life Writes the Plot: Kinda. Bridge's gloves cover up the actor's tattoos, but they serve as his Power Limiter in-show.
- The Smart Guy: Although Kat is SPD's head scientist, Bridge tends to do some science on his own when the situation depends on it.
- Story-Breaker Power: Generally averted, but his Aura Vision would've easily resolved "Recognition" fairly quickly - especially during the Spot the Imposter confrontation. Unsurprisingly, neither he nor anyone else thought to make use of it... at all.
- Took a Level in Badass: In Overdrive, Sentinel Knight summons him from an unspecified point post-series where he's the new Red Ranger (with Sky the Earth Commander, Doggy Supreme Commander, and Fowler retired).
- Trademark Favorite Food: Buttery toast. *wiggle fingers*
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)
Voiced by: Mika Kikuchi (Japanese dub)
Okay. I'm filthy, cranky, and my new shoes are trashed. Do you really wanna mess with me?
- Action Girl: Despite her attitude, she can hold her own in a fight.
- The Chick: Easily this.
- Idol Singer: She becomes a model and a singer.
- Lovable Alpha Bitch: If Space Patrol Delta was a high school, then she'd be this trope in full.
- The Ojou
- Shape Shifter Weapon: She can absorb solid materials and use them like a "Power Fist".
- She's Got Legs: As seen in "Zapped."
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: Girly Girl to Z's Tomboy. (Despite the Tomboyish Name)
- Valley Girl
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.
- Implacable Man: In the finale, he just casually walks through Mora's last attempts at monster summoning, destroying every monster with a single stroke.
- 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)
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.
- Always Someone Better: Was this to the main heroes.
- BFG: Their main weapons are some very big guns.
- Fallen Heroes / Face–Heel Turn: They willingly join Grumm and Not Brainwashed, although the comic adaptation retcons this to Brainwashed and Crazy.
- Five-Man Band
- Five-Bad Band
- Foreshadowing: In the first episode, Bridge says their colors are a little off, fast forward to later in the series and they'e revealed to be working for the Big Bad.
- Psycho Rangers: After their Face–Heel Turn.
- Smug Snake: All of them are very confident in their abilities. Charlie, as the leader, voices it most.
- Not Brainwashed: Retconned to Brainwashed and Crazy in the comic.
- Tomboyish Name: Charlie, the red ranger
SPD Nova Ranger | (Actress: Antonia Prebble)
Voiced by: Shizuka Ito (Japanese dub)
Boom | (Actor: Kelson Henderson)
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...!
- 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)
Voiced by: Rie Tanaka (Japanese dub)
Tell me I didn't just fry the Quantum Enhancer. TELL ME I didn't just fry the Quantum Enhancer!
- Action Girl: As she proves it as Cat Ranger.
- Cat Girl: Quite literally.
- Hot Scientist: She's an attractive scientist.
- Hour of Power: Her morpher can only work for a short time.
- Meaningful Name: Kat is Cat Girl.
- Older Than They Look: Look below.
- Really 700 Years Old : It's hard to believe, but Kat is actually aged 147 in Earth years. Then again, she is an alien.
R.I.C. (Robotic Interactive Canine)
- 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.
Sergeant Silverback | (Voice actor: John Tui)
Voiced by: Kanji Suzumori (Japanese dub)
You belong to me! Say it! Say it like your freedom depends on it!
- Alliterative Name
- Bully Bulldog: Owns a bulldog version of R.I.C.
- Drill Sergeant Nasty: As shown in the episode focused on him.
- Meaningful Name: Silverback is a gorilla.
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: Like every Drill Sergeant Nasty in the last few decades, he's basically an R. Lee Ermey charicature.
- Sink-or-Swim Mentor: He helps bring the rangers together and builds their stamina through his training, but only after threatening their dismissal from the academy.
- Talking Animal: He's a gorilla
Supreme Commander Fowler "Birdy" | (Voice actor: Paul Norell)
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.
- Badass Bureaucrat: He has many flaws, but cowardice isn't one of them. He's willing to take the fight to Gruumm personally.
- Big Good: Of SPD as a whole.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: On the receiving end of one, courtesy of Emperor Gruumm himself.
- Meaningful Name: Fowler Birdy.
- The Neidermeyer: At first.
- Obstructive Bureaucrat: In his first appearance, he acts as this towards Cruger and his team. By the end of the episode, he realizes his mistake and promises to keep out of B-team's way.
- Tyrant Takes the Helm: Happens once.
- Petting Zoo People: He's a bird.
- Retired Badass: Per Bridge's appearance in Operation Overdrive, Fowler eventually left SPD and went to live in Miami.
Sophie | (Actress: Natacha Hutchison)
Voiced by: Eri Gouda (Japanese dub)
Emperor Gruumm | (Voice actor: Rene Naufahu)
Voiced by: Tetsuo Komura (Japanese dub)
You returned with nothing. Therefore, you shall be nothing. [..] I need another.
- Archenemy: He and Cruger are this to each other.
- Badass Biker: When he actually fights. Only Kruger outclasses him.
- Blade on a Stick: His primary weapon.
- Big Bad: Or is he? While he was working for Omni, he's still the True Final Boss when he pulls a Last Villain Stand.
- Disproportionate Retribution: His long enmity with Cruger comes from a battle where Cruger cut one of his horns off. He loses the other one in the Final Battle.
- Enemy to All Living Things - Flowers wither in his presence.
- Expy: Arguably to Fuhrer Hell Satan, considering his role in relation to Omni.
- Flat Character: Not much to him other than his desire for conquest and revenge.
- Fashionable Asymmetry: Cruger cut off his right horn. Does little to diminish his appearance.
- Get It Over With: "Show me no mercy, Cruger! No mercy!" Depending on your definition, Cruger doesn't - he lops off the other horn and imprisons him.
- Glowing Eyes of Doom / Red Eyes, Take Warning: His eyes are glowing red.
- Guttural Growler: All of his dialogue is spoken with this voice.
- It's Personal: He harbors a longstanding personal grudge against Cruger relating to his missing horn. Said horn was chopped off by Cruger's Shadow Saber when the two faced each other in battle an unspecified number of years prior to the start of the series.
- Original Generation: No Sentai counterpart for him.
- Last Villain Stand: After the rest of his army has been defeated and captured and Omni has been destroyed, Gruumm emerges from the rubble and challenges Doggie Cruger to a final battle.
- Wrecked Weapon: Cruger ends their final showdown fairly decisively by breaking his staff in two.
Mora / Morgana | (Actress: Olivia James-Baird / Josephine Davidson)
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.
- Arms Dealer: His job.
- Badass Cape: His outfit has one.
- Bat Out of Hell: He appears to be an alien bat monster. He has a swarm of bats follow him whose bites can cause growth.
- Big Bad Wannabe: He wants to be the Big Bad, but he's not.
- Demoted to Extra: Like Gluto and Captain Mutiny before him, Broodwing's Sentai counterpart Agent Abrera was the big bad. Unlike Gluto, though, Broodwing actually did stuff.
- Establishing Character Moment: The above conversation, quoted from "A-Bridged"; Broodwing's loyalty belongs to whoever pays him well enough.
- Make My Monster Grow: In a rare occurrence to a series that mostly averts this trope. Broodwing has a bat come from his swarm to bite the Monster of the Week, making the monster grow.
- Only in It for the Money: Unlike most villains in Power Rangers, he just wants profit.
- Sharp-Dressed Man
- Smug Snake
- Spared by the Adaptation: Like every other bad guy who got "contained."
- The Starscream: Unlike most versions, he's not interested in taking Grumm's place, but wanted him out as payback for refusing to pay for his services any longer.
- Voluntary Shapeshifting: Can shift his arms into a set of wings, or take the form of a swarm of bats.
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.
- Expy: A Composite Character of two characters from different Super Sentai series.
- The majority of its character comes from The Omnipotent God, staying behind the scenes for the majority of the series, letting another villain (Emperor Grumm/Fuhrer Hell Satan) command in it's place, only to usurp said villain near the end.
- The rest of it's attributes, however, come from Wicked Life God Dezumozorlya, acting as a replacement for the latter (who did not have a direct counterpart in Dino Thunder).
- 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.
Piggy | (Actor: Barnie Duncan)
Voiced by: Shintaro Ohata (Japanese dub)
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.
- Big Damn Heroes: In the finale, he dresses as a Krybot and shoots down the rest of the squad sent to execute the depowered S.P.D.
- Dirty Coward: The only reason he's helping all sides is fear of what either one could do to him.
- Double Agent: Triple agent for Grumm, Broodwing, and SPD.
- Fate Worse than Death: He says he'd rather be vaporized by either Grumm or Broodwing than be imprisoned within one of the Rangers' cards.
- Give Me a Sign: In the finale, Piggy's guilty over betraying the Rangers and shouts this. His food cart is promptly struck by lightning, sent careening down a hill, and explodes.
- Ship Tease: One-sided version with Syd. He is sometimes seen checking her out and blowing a kiss at her.
- The Rat: Pretty much his role throughout the series.
- Unexpected Character: He makes a cameo next season, making it the closest to a Team Up between SPD and Mystic Force.
- Wild Card: See Double Agent above.
Dru Harrington | (Actor: Dwayne Cameron)
Voiced by: Nobutoshi Canna (Japanese dub)
