Wesley "Wes" Collins / Red Time Force Ranger | (Actor: Jason Faunt)

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/prtf_rg_wes.jpg
Voiced by: José Arenas (Latin American Spanish)

  • All Up to You: With the Time Force Rangers back in 3000 AD and Eric injured, Wes has to face off the Cyclobots by himself.
  • Big Eater: During the second episode, he's bothering a cook at his dad's mansion, who notes Wes is always eating too much. Wes retorts it's because he's always hungry.
  • Big "NO!": When Ransik pulls a Taking You with Me in the Final Battle.
    • A more medium-sized "NO!" comes when Eric flings himself over a bridge and is shot by Conwing on the way down.
  • Coming-of-Age Story: Wes grows from a somewhat spoiled son of a billionaire to a true hero who takes control of his own life.
  • The Hero: Played with. He's the main character, but he's an inexperienced Sheltered Aristocrat and not the actual leader of the team. He also doubled as The Lancer.
  • Law of Chromatic Superiority: Well, he is the Red Ranger, so he gets cool armor. Also see below.
  • Missing Mom: No word on what became of his mother.
  • Non-Action Guy: Subverted. While he was inexperienced, he was shown to be a very good fighter from the start.
  • Official Couple: With Jen.
  • Rebel Prince: Mr. Collins wanted Wes to grow up to inherit the family business from him, but his grooming served only to alienate Wes from everyone around him. He jumps at the chance to be a Rookie Red Ranger, as it's the first time in his life he's fought for anything.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Eric's blue.
  • Rookie Red Ranger: He isn't part of Time Force itself, and he was just recruited because his DNA matched that of Alex's, which proves to be a plot point.
  • Sheltered Aristocrat: At the beginning.
  • Spoiled Sweet/Nice Guy: He was otherwise a decent person before becoming Ranger despite his father's influence.
  • Took a Level in Badass: He was an inexperienced Rookie Red Ranger at first.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: He wants his father to be proud of who he is. Sure enough, Once Mr. Collins sees that Wes is a Power Ranger, he's very proud.

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.

Lucas Kendall / Blue Time Force Ranger | (Actor: Michael Copon)

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.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: He underestimates how much Jen wants Ransik caught, believe she and the other Rangers would rather work for Mr. Collins if it helps with that.
  • 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.
  • Jerkass: At his worst, he often attacks Wes for no reason, refuses to thank others for helping him, and in one instance almost left Wes for dead.
  • 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.
  • Secret Keeper: Figures out the Rangers are from the future thanks to one of the mutants, and keeps quite about it until Mr. Collins learns it on his own.
  • 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.
  • The Unfavorite: Not helping Eric's grouchiness is that, at first, Mr. Collins still wants Wes on the Silver Guardians.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: After getting shot jumping off a bridge, Jen saves him. Eric refuses to say thanks, even after Jen points out he would have drowned if not for her.
  • 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.

  • Big Good: Who the four future Rangers answer to.
  • The Captain: He's the leader of Time Force.
  • Da Chief: Momentarily, during the opening, when he chews Jen, Lucas, Trip and Katie out for getting beaten up by Ransik, then relieves them of duty.
  • 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.

    Their Enemies 

Ransik | (Actor: Vernon Wells)

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tf_ransik.jpg
Voiced by: Gerardo Vásquez (Latin American Spanish)

  • The Atoner: In "Reinforcements from the Future", he decides to atone for his misdeeds.
  • Ax-Crazy: His mental stability often hinges on how much serum he has left.
  • Bad Boss: Towards robots, and mutants who fail him or won't side with him.
  • Bad with the Bone: He pulls his bones out of his body and uses them as swords. It was later revealed he was given this power by some Orgs in Power Rangers Wild Force in exchange for them copying his mutant DNA to become Mut-Orgs.
  • Badass Beard: He has a beard and can kick major ass if he needs to.
  • Beard of Evil: He has a full beard befitting for a villain.
  • Big Bad: The main villain of the series.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: During the finale of "The End of Time", he effortlessly defeats all of the Rangers, even when Wes uses his Battle Warrior armor against him.
  • Deadpan Snarker: At times, he has a witty sense of humor.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: In spite of everything, Ransik is actually a fairly attentive and loving parent to Nadira. This is a factor in his Heel–Face Turn.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: He has a very deep voice, provided by Vernon Wells.
  • Final Boss: After Frax is killed by the Rangers, Ransik becomes the last villain they have to encounter.
  • Freudian Excuse: Not that it truly excuses him, but the future time he came from was full of perfectionists who saw a mutation like him as far from perfect, and cast him out.
  • Genius Bruiser: Is as strong as he is cunning.
  • Graceful Loser: If he hadn't accidentally blasted Nadira, he would've beaten the Rangers!
  • Heel–Face Turn: In "The End of Time"; notably one of the few seasons in which the Big Bad isn't killed or forcibly turned good.
  • Heel Realization: In the Grand Finale, after nearly killing his daughter in a rage.
    Ransik: I'm ready... to pay for what I've done.
  • Hell-Bent for Leather: Most of his outfit is black leather.
  • Humans Are Bastards: According to him, though to be fair he's really in no position to judge.
  • Karma Houdini: After everything he did and tried to do there's no arguing he became this at the end, though he at least lets himself be arrested for all of it.
  • Kick the Morality Pet: Towards his daughter, no less. Which shocks him into turning himself in.
  • The Juggernaut: Able to blow through the Rangers with little effort.
  • Large and in Charge: Managed to make himself grow on occasion.
  • Large Ham: Practically the reason Vernon Wells took the role.
  • Love Redeems: His love for his daughter is ultimately what causes his Heel–Face Turn and redeems him.
  • Misanthrope Supreme: The leader of the mutants harbors a grudge towards the perfectionist humans.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: After severely wounding his daughter in the Final Battle. "What have I done?" indeed.
  • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: Terminally ill, mutant criminal genius from the future (who can pull swords out of his entire body.) The Wild Force teamup episode shows that he's got magic as well.
  • Oh, Crap!: Ransik's utterly shocked when he realizes that he almost killed Nadira and when Jen finally shoots him down.
  • Orcus on His Throne: Subverted, he follows the traditional Monster of the Week formula of Power Rangers villains, but he isn't afraid to get his hands dirty.
  • Redemption Earns Life: After realizing what he did was wrong, he survives and turns himself in.
  • Spikes of Villainy: Most of his armored parts have spikes. They're gone next season, indicating he's not evil anymore.
  • Taking You with Me: He attempted to take Wes down with him in his Red Battle Warrior outfit, but it doesn't work out.
  • Two-Faced: Until he faced the Mut-Orgs in Power Rangers Wild Force.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Considering that Frax was kind to him and saved his life purely out of the goodness of his heart when Ransik was shunned by most, it was really a dick move to steal all the serum and leave him to die.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: As said above, he wass shunned and cast aside and that made him very bitter.

Gluto | (Voice actor: Neil Kaplan)

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.
