Justin Stewart / Blue Turbo Ranger | (Actor: Blake Foster)

  • Adorably Precocious Child: Only twelve years old and he seems to be the first to ever get the hint when a bad guy is on the prowl.
  • Ascended Fanboy
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Big Burpa didn't see Justin coming in "Bicycle Built for the Blues" after she put him on that bike of doom!
  • BFG: Two actually.
  • Cousin Oliver
  • Darker and Edgier: When you think about it - his mom's dead, his dad apparently abandoned him, and he looks up to the other Rangers, Tommy in particular, as parental replacements. Ridiculously like Evangelion.
  • Kid-Appeal Character
  • Kid Hero
  • Pintsized Powerhouse: Once got bitten by a radioactive ant and got super-strength in "Little Strong Man", but unfortunately had to give it up to continue being a Power Ranger.
  • Put on a Bus: "Chase into Space". Came back for Power Rangers in Space episode "True Blue to the Rescue".
  • Sizeshifter/Older Alter Ego: Whenever he morphed into a Ranger, his body's height grew to match those of the other rangers (while his voice is still sounded like his usual 12-year-old self), for no apparent reason given.
  • The Smart Guy (Badass Bookworm)
  • Tagalong Kid: Inverted, since he can actually put up a good fight.
    • Further inverted after the cast turn-over, which makes him the most experienced Ranger of the five.
  • Tomato in the Mirror: In "The Robot Ranger", Justin begins to freak out after he discovers all the other rangers are robots — then the reveal is that he's one, too! Then the real Justin walks out and reveals that the whole thing was an experiment to see if they could build perfect robot rangers for Zordon and Alpha.
  • When You Coming Home, Dad?: His dad wants to be there for him, but has difficulty finding a job. It's resolved by the end of the series, and keeping the family together is the main (in-universe) reason he doesn't go into space with the other Rangers. His brief reappearance in Space reinforces the happy ending.

     Their Friends 

The Blue Senturion | (Voice actor: David Walsh)

The Phantom Ranger | (Actor: Alex Dodd)

Rocky DeSantos | (Actor: Steve Cardenas)

Zordon | (Actor: Bob Manahan)

Alpha 5 | (Voice actor: Richard Steven Horvitz)

  • Art Shift: In the movie and the three-part premiere "Shift into Turbo", his head is shinier, he's is a little slimmer, and the curved lightning bolt on his chest is straight. It's similar to the design used by his successor, Alpha 6.
    • Yet, in "Passing the Torch", he is reverted to his previous design, again.
  • Put on a Bus: Accompanied Zordon home, and presumed dead in the attack on Eltar.
  • Verbal Tic: Ai yi yi yi yi!

Dimitria | (Actress: Carol Hoyt)

  • Figure It Out Yourself: Dimitria spent the first half of the series doing this (her species could only talk in questions, supposedly, though fellow "Inquirian" Visceron didn't have this problem), only to drop this practice when the four veteran Rangers- probably more experienced at this sort of thing than she was- were retired and replaced, at which point she got a lot more direct.
    • Get it? Because it sounds like inquiry/inquire? Question?
  • Woman in White

Alpha 6 | (Voice actress: Katrina Luciani)

Ernie | (Actor: Richard Genelle)

  • Put on a Bus: Left Angel Grove in "The Shadow Rangers" to go build a bridge for his Foreign Service Unit in the Amazon.
    • Real Life Writes the Plot: His actor, Richard Genelle, was suffering health problems at the time, so he had to leave the show.

Bulk & Skull | (Actors: Paul Schrier and Jason Narvy)

  • Everything's Better with Monkeys: In the first half of this season, Bulk and Skull got turned into chimpanzees by Elgar in the "Shift into Turbo" three-parter. They were turned back into humans by one of Divatox's torpedoes in "Honey, I Shrunk the Rangers", which would lead to this next trope...
  • Invisible Main Character: "Stitch Witchery", until the invisibility wore off, that is...
  • Plucky Comic Relief
  • Those Two Guys
  • What Could Have Been: There were officially plans for Bulk and Skull to get their own Fawlty Towers-esque spin-off series, where they run a hotel with a Mexican Elvis Presley impersonator called "El Vez", hence Paul Schrier and Jason Narvy's initial absence from the series. When the spin-off idea was scrapped, they later came back on the set again.
  • Why Do You Keep Changing Jobs?: Their subplot in the second half of this season.

Lt. Stone | (Actor: Gregg Bullock)

     Their Enemies 

Divatox | (Actresses: Hilary Shepard Turner —> Carol Hoyt)

  • Aborted Arc: Was going to be revealed as Dimitria's long-lost twin sister, which was hinted at in "Transmission Impossible". This was possibly proven to be true after she got hit by Zordon's purification wave, as purified Divatox wore a pure white dress that looked just like Dimitria's.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: Yes sadly, once she found out where the Command Center was. She ordered a full on assault of the base. Dimitra leaving and the Rangers losing their Zords contributed to their weakened power, allowing her forces to overwhelm them and decimate the base. It was only through Divatox being called away to the Council of Evil that saved the rangers from being finished off.
  • Big Bad
  • Breast Plate: In the Turbo movie.
  • Catch Phrase: "VIVA LA DIVA!"
  • Dark Chick
  • Evil Is Hammy: With that catchphrase, could she be anything else?
    • Two flavors of ham, in fact, due to being played by two different actresses. Carol Hoyt played her more cold and calculating, whereas Hilary Shepard Turner played more a little more loony.
  • Figure It Out Yourself
  • Forgot the Call/Laser-Guided Amnesia: In "Trouble by the Slice". Bonus points for using an actual laser (or rather, a teleportation ray turned Up to Eleven, but still)!
  • I'm a Humanitarian: When the Rangers were shrunk down and stuck in her ship, Divatox cornered them and grabbed Tanya with her extendable tongue and attempted to eat her.
  • Make My Monster Grow: "Fire the torpedoes!"
  • Meaningful Name: Her name has the word DIVA in it for a reason.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: A lot goofier and less threatening than The Machine Empire and Lord Zedd, and hell even Rita. There's even an episode where she gets amnesia and ends up working at a pizza the season finale she sends a monster that destroys both the Rangers zords, captures their Cool Car allies, and leads an assault on the Power Chambers, and destroys it and the Rangers powers, making her the first villain to truly defeat the Power Rangers.
  • The Other Darrin: Hilary Shepard Turner originated the role in the movie, but was on maternity leave for the first half of the TV series, and replaced by Carol Hoyt (who also played Dimitria). Fans... generally prefer Turner.
  • Stripperific

Elgar | (Voice actor: Derek Stephen Prince)

  • Baldof Evil
  • Butt Monkey: When working for Astronema in the In Space season.
  • Dumb Muscle: Emphasis on the dumb part.
  • Hey Its The Voice: Fans of the Digimon dub would probably recognize Derek Stephen Prince as the voice of various characters in Digimon: Piedmon,Demidevimon, Veemon and evolutions, Ken/Digimon Emperor, Impmon. His Elgar voice sounds closest to his Ex Veemon/Beezlemon voice.
  • Humongous Mecha: Is surprisingly a good pilot of these. Elgar was beating both the Rangers and the Blue Senturion in a Zord fight, until one of the arms fell, causing Elgar to retreat back to the Space Base. And when Elgar returned, with Terrorzord fixed, he once again only lost when the monster of the week accidentally transformed the Terrorzord into a camel, with Elgar sitting on it.

Rygog | (Voice actor: Lex Lang)

Porto | (Voice actor: Scott Page-Pagter)

General Havoc | (Voice actor: Tom Wyner)

  • Large Ham: Lampshaded in a blooper from "The Darkest Day" when two of his Chromites declare him "the general of ham acting".
  • Put on a Bus: Survived his final fight with the Rangers and vowed to return one day with an even more powerful Metallasaurus. Made a couple cameos the following season.
  • Quintessential British Gentleman: Fits this trope despite being an alien. When he first meets the rangers, he's shown having a Spot of Tea, and is even polite enough to offer them a muffin.
