Characters: Power Rangers Wild Force

Our Heroes

Cole Evans / Red Lion Ranger | (Actor: Rick Medina)

  • Friend to All Living Things
  • Hachimaki
  • The Hero
  • Hurting Hero: He grew up in the jungle, knowing nothing about where he came from. As a Ranger, he later learns his parents are presumed dead. He then learns they are dead and were killed by their friend, Dr. Adler (who became Master Org). Cole demonstrates considerable restraint in killing Adler when he had the chance.
  • Idiot Hero
  • Large Ham: He stands out with his overly serious lines during the Red Ranger Reunion episode, in stark contrast with his predecessors' more relaxed deliveries. Even Carter was more laid back in comparison.
  • Law of Chromatic Superiority: Now who got a Battlizer, a second Cool Bike, and the chance to go on a mission with nine other Red Rangers?
  • The Leader: He displaced Taylor as this because he was chosen to be the red ranger
  • Nature Hero
  • Nice Character, Mean Actor: As of February 2015, actor Ricardo Medina is accused of murder... though it does seem to be self-defence. [1]
    • Before that incident even happened, he was quite infamous in the 2000s for being very, very cocky and just basically being an all-round Jerkass, which was quite the contrast to Cole Evans — especially during his stint on Jerry Hall's reality tv show, Kept; he was never known for any violent outbursts, however. He might have mellowed out when the 2010s rolled in though.
  • Parental Abandonment
  • Raised by Natives
  • Rookie Red Ranger: One of the more complained about examples, since despite his lack of experience, he was immediately made the team leader just because he was the Red Ranger.
  • Ship Tease: With Alyssa. The original ending for the finale showed the two of them married.
  • Shirtless Scene: And damn is the guy ripped.
  • Sleeves Are for Wimps
  • Speaks Fluent Animal
  • What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?: Played with. He realizes as early as the first episode that his abilities to commune with the hearts of creatures isn't especially useful in battle. That said, it does come in handy a few times during the course of the season.
  • Wolverine Claws
  • You Killed My Father: Averted. Probably because he never got to meet his parents, he chooses not to kill Adler for it because he doesn't want to be obsessed with someone he hates like Adler was.

Taylor Earhardt / Yellow Eagle Ranger | (Actress: Alyson Kiperman)

  • Ace Pilot
  • Action Girl: The most experienced of the main five Rangers. She lasted longer than any of the others when Zen-Aku first appeared.
  • Cool Sword
  • Crossover Ship Tease: In-universe, with Eric during the team-up episode.
  • The Lancer
  • Meaningful Name
  • Military Brat: Her Air Force days left her very devoted to rules and regulations.
  • Quickly Demoted Woman
  • She's a Man in Japan: Along with some other Yellow Rangers in the franchise - in her case, her counterpart is male Air Force AWOL Gaku Washio. She is, so far, the last one.
  • Shipper on Deck: Is the first one to point out the tension between Princess Shayla and Merrick.
    • Then ends up on the other side of this with Eric in "Reinforcements From The Future."
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Tomboy to Shayla's Girly Girl.
  • Tsundere: Watch the crossover with Eric from Time Force, "Reinforcements from the Future", and you'll understand.
    • This was her attitude with the other rangers at first before eventually calming down. Complete departure from the Yellow Rangers before and after her, who are usually cheerful and friendly.

Max Cooper / Blue Shark Ranger | (Actor: Phillip Jeanmarie)

Danny Delgado / Black Bison Ranger | (Actor: Jack Guzman)

Alyssa Enrilé / White Tiger Ranger | (Actress: Jessica Rey)

Merrick Baliton / Lunar Wolf Ranger | (Actor: Phillip Andrew)

Their Friends

Princess Shayla | (Actor: Ann Marie Crouch)

Their Enemies

Master Org / Dr. Viktor Adler | (Actor: Ilia Volok)

  • Big Bad
    • Bigger Bad: The original Master Org doesn't confront the rangers due to his powers being used by Adler. After Adler is killed by Mandilok, he grows a horn and comes back to life. He eventually returns and kills Mandilok in revenge. He then talks as though he and the original are now one and the same.
  • The Chessmaster
  • Evil Albino
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: This sets him apart from most PR Big Bads.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: His motivation to kill Cole's parents.
  • Large Ham
  • One-Winged Angel: In the end, absorbs the Org Heart and transforms into a near unstoppable behemoth who singlehandedly kills all the Wild Zords and nearly wins. The only thing that stops him is all the Wild Zords coming Back from the Dead.
  • Orcus on His Throne: Justified at first because he's truly only human at the beginning and wouldn't be much of a threat himself. Then he goes One-Winged Angel...
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: His backstory has him murdering Cole's parents out of jealousy, which he called his "rightful revenge". Toward the end of the season, he also engaged in this to make those who betrayed him pay.
  • Was Once a Man: Early on, subverted; but then the real Master Org came and took over Adler fully.
  • We Used to Be Friends: He used to be good friends with Cole's birth parents and fell for Cole's mother. He wanted to propose to her, but Cole's father beat him to it. Neither were aware of his feelings for her or that he grew to hate them for what he perceived as stealing his love and his work long before he became Master Org.

Jindrax | (Voice actor: Richard Cansino)

Toxica | (Actress: Sin Wong)

Zen-Aku | (Voice actor: Dan Woren before being separated from Merrick, Lex Lang later)

Mandilok | (Voice actor: Barbara Goodson as the female voice, Esra Weisz as the male voice)

  • Ambiguous Gender: Since Mandilok has two voices, one male and one female. Lampshaded when Jindrax doesn't know whether to use "sir" or "ma'am" when addressing.
  • Big Eater: It's overall goal is to eat whatever it finds, whether it be be buildings, food or even people.
  • The Starscream: Took over as leader when Master Org turned out to be a fake, and killed him. It doesn't last.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: After Toxica and Jindrax free it, Mandilok treats them with no respect, even temporarily replacing them with new duke Orgs.
