Jennifer "Jen" Scotts / Pink Time Force Ranger | (Actress: Erin Cahill)

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/prtf_rg_jen.jpg
Voiced by: Maggie Vera (Latin American Spanish)

  • Action Girl: Out of all the female rangers, she is the most battle-ready and is no less capable when unmorphed.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: She's a woman with a mostly no-nonsense attitude.
  • Cute Bruiser: Very cute in addition to being one of the stronger Power Rangers ever.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Was aloof to Wes at first. Character Development in both her and Wes is crucial in changing this.
  • Fair Cop: One of the fairest in Power Rangers history.
  • Heartbroken Badass: Her fiancee Alex appears to be killed in the first episode. However, he turned out to be alive but different.
  • Iconic Outfit: From her reunion-show appearance in the next season, oddly.
  • The Knights Who Say "Squee!": When it comes to action movies, especially kung-fu flicks and her favorite movie star: Frankie Chang.
  • Lethal Chef: Can't even make decent cookies.
    Wes: You shouldn't have! (eats the cookie, gags, and spits it right back out) Ugh, you really shouldn't have!
    Jen(gives a "fine, whatever" look to Wes, then eats her cookie, and gags'')
  • Ms. Fanservice: There's really no reason for Jen's 21st century outfit to include a tight, tiny miniskirt other than the fact that former model Erin Cahill is one of the most beautiful women to ever put on the pink spandex.
    Linkara: "Holy crap, Jen, that's special assignment gear for Time Force?!?"
    • Slightly justified in that fanservice itself is a tactical advantage, since even in 2002 guys are expected to be slightly dazed at the sight of a hot chick, and both outfits do keep her legs fairly free for kicking. One gets the sense that she doesn't really care if a criminal sees her panties, since she'll have knocked them out in five minutes anyway.
    • Also mitigated by the fact that she apparently wears Modesty Shorts under said skirt (as seen in "Time Force Traitor").
  • Not So Above It All: Normally the most serious minded and straightforward of the team, but she has been known to let go and have fun, especially with the above mentioned kung-fu movie star.
  • Official Couple: First with Alex, then later with Wes.
  • Quickly Demoted Leader: Averted. Wes gets the Battlizer and standing-in-the-center perks of being Red, but she keeps her position as team leader, thank you very much. The only time she isn't leader is during the brief arc where Alex reclaims the Red Chrono Morpher from Wes.
  • Raven Hair, Ivory Skin: Rather, a nice dark brown, but it works.
  • She's Got Legs: And they are very visible with her civilian skirt.
  • Statuesque Stunner: The 5'7" Jen is certainly a beaut!
  • Supporting Leader: Actually, The Leader.
  • Supporting Protagonist: Wes is the Red Ranger, but Jen is arguably the Ranger that the season really focuses on.
  • Tsundere: Initially towards Wes. The fact that he resembled the presumably KIA fiance didn't help.
  • You Are in Command Now: Steelix turns her evil in Time Force Traitor.

Trip / Green Time Force Ranger | (Actor: Kevin Kleinberg)

Eric Myers / Quantum Ranger | (Actor: Dan Southworth)

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/prtf_rg_eric.jpg
Voiced by: Jorge Ornelas (Latin American Spanish)

  • Aloof Ally: Ally is stretching it, at least at first.
  • Ambition Is Evil: Ambition's probably his biggest character motivation, but it's averted in that his compassion for others is stronger than his desire for position/recognition.
  • The Captain: Of the Silver Guardians.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: He wears mostly black when out of uniform; only the red beret denotes his primary Ranger color. In fact, he doesn't wear a casual red shirt until the Wild Force crossover.
  • Determinator: Eric's worked so hard to get his life out of the gutter and make something of himself. Deconstructed in that it's made him more than a bit resentful.
  • Dark and Troubled Past / Broken Ace: He lived an opposite life to Wes, despite Wes openly wanting to hang out with him. Also his Freudian Excuse for his attitude towards the other Rangers.
  • Easily Forgiven: Lonely or not, he's still a jerk to and occasionally violent with Wes, who insists they can be friends before Eric's Character Development really kicks in.
  • Fair Cop: Tries to be one. By the Grand Finale, he becomes one.
  • Friendless Background: Presumably by choice. While Eric was depicted as being an outcast amongst the snobby rich kids of his prep school, Wes honestly seems to try his best to be nice to Eric, and is subsequently pushed away.
  • I Work Alone: All but says this to Jen after she's saved him from drowning. When she insists they cooperate later, this is his response.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite everything, Eric does care for people's safety and was friends with a little girl where he used to live.
  • Jerkass Façade: Trip puts it best: "He's lonely; he only acts mean to hide it."
  • Law of Chromatic Superiority: He also gets a Super Mode. And he gets to join Wes and eight other Red Rangers on a special mission.
  • The Leader: Of the Silver Guardians. He tries to replace Wes and take over the Rangers too, but it doesn't work out.
  • Morality Pet: He keeps adorable little birds and befriends a little girl who he gives said adorable little birds to take care of near the finale.
  • Perpetual Frowner: Smiles a handful of times in the series. More likely to smirk.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Wes' red.
  • The Rival: To Wes. Even after Wes gave up his fortune to help people.
  • Rollerblade Good: His Megabattle Armor includes rollerblades.
  • Sarcastic Clapping: Upon becoming the Quantum Ranger for the first time. With his gun, no less.
  • Ship Tease / Crossover Ship: With Taylor.
  • Sixth Ranger: Has the gear for it, but subverted as he never actually joins the team.
    • He also goes against the usual grain by sharing his suit's color with another current ranger, and his overall archetype is more of a mercenary Red Ranger than anything else; observe the Law of Chromatic Superiority above.
  • Tall, Dark and Snarky: Always, even during Wild Force.
  • You Look Familiar: Most of his scenes, particularly his debut as the Quantum Ranger, were easy to splice up with the Sentai footage due to how similar Eric and Naoto look.

    Their Friends 

Circuit | (Voice actress: Brianne Siddall)

Captain Logan | (Actor: Roy Werner)

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

The mentor of the Time Force rangers.

  • Hand Wave: The specific's as to when and how he is able to contact the Rangers in the past seems to vary between episodes, often with a throwaway line about "temporal interference" to explain his absence.
  • Mission Control: He provides the Rangers with intel from the future.

Mr. A. Collins | (Actor: Edward Albert)

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eppic13.jpg
Voiced by: Paco Mauri (Latin American Spanish)

  • Character Development: Starts off as being obsessed with making a profit at the start of the season to a much kinder character willing to help those in need regardless of if they can afford it or not.
  • Cool Old Guy: He is responsible for commissioning the Silver Guardians and the Bio Lab.
  • Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu?: Mr Collins shows some series balls in the episode Dawn of Destiny by telling of Ransik to his face. Check out Papa Wolf below for more.
  • No Name Given: No first name, at least. We only know it starts with an A.
  • Non-Action Guy: He prefers pen and paper rather than the sword.
  • Parents Know Their Children: He effortlessly identifies his partially - masked son.
  • Papa Wolf: After he finds out that the medicine his factory was creating helped save Ransik Mr. Collins has this to say:
    Mr Collins: "If I knew that would have helped you, I would have poured it all down the drain myself!"
  • Rebuilt Pedestal: Before the start of the series Wes used to look up to Mr. Collins and mentioned that he wanted to be just like him but the latter's greed eventually strained their relationship. However, after standing up, and almost dying, to Ransik the two eventually reconcile with Mr. Collins telling Wes to follow his own path. It helps that he became a much nicer person over the course of the season.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: At first.
  • So Proud of You:
    • In the episode "Dawn of Destiny", Mr. Collins expresses that he's proud of Wes for choosing to follow his own path to Ransik.
    • In the finale, he expresses how proud he is of Wes.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Mr. Collins starts the series of as being a cold man obsessed with making a profit to the point that he has to be convinced at times to help the Power Rangers save civilians. After his near death experience he becomes a much kinder individual best shown by his willingness to put himself in danger to help evacuate civilians during the Final Battle against Ransik and turning the Silver Guardians into a free profit organization.

Alex | (Actor: Jason Faunt)

Voiced by: José Antonio Macías (Latin American Spanish)

The Silver Guardians

  • Badass Normal: Somewhat. At long range, they are capable of dealing with Cyclobot waves. Up close and personal, however, Cyclobots completely outclass them. And they don't stand a chance against mutants.
  • Five Rounds Rapid: Works on Cyclobots. Not on mutants.
  • Hero Secret Service: The "hero" part is emphasized after Wes is made leader.
  • Hufflepuff House: Though their relationship with the Rangers begins tenuously.
  • Law Enforcement, Inc.: A rare heroic example.
  • Red Shirt Army: They are this more often than not.

Gluto | (Voice actor: Neil Kaplan)

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eppic14.jpg
Voiced by: Alfonso Mellado (Latin American Spanish)

  • The Brute: Tries to be this at one point to impress Nadira. It doesn't work.
  • Demoted to Extra: Don Dorunero was Timeranger's Big Bad, Gluto is little more than comic relief.
