    The Galaxy Rangers 

Zachary Foxx
Voiced by: Jerry Orbach (English), José Lavat (Latin-American Spanish)

The Hero and the team Leader, a family man whose by-the-book personality contrasts with his more freewheeling teammates. A space battle left Zach a Cyborg with an implant-triggered Arm Cannon. It also led to a tragic Fate Worse than Death for his beloved wife Eliza; she's trapped in a "psychic coma", with her mind in a "psychocrystal", a fiendish device the Queen uses to power Empire technology with Life Energy. Zach is obsessed with rescuing Eliza, which he never accomplishes during the series (although Fan Fic authors have Set Right What Once Went Wrong). Zach's teenage children, Zach Jr. and Jessica, are recurring characters who star in a few Day in the Limelight episodes.

Tropes associated with Zach:

Shane Gooseman, aka "Goose"
Voiced by: Doug Preis

The Lancer, a Clint Eastwood look- and soundalike (in stark contrast to Zachary Foxx, described by the show's creators as "The John Wayne Character"), and a Cowboy Cop in every sense of the term, Shane may be the most popular Ranger. Shane is an Artificial Human who was "born" as one of the X-Men-like Supertroopers, an experimental, genetically engineered army of SuperSoldiers. He is the youngest of the Supertroopers engineered and considered the runt. Unfortunately, Jerkass politician Senator Whiner exposed most of them to "X Factor", a flawed DNA accelerator that killed several Supertroopers and caused all the survivors except (arguably) Darkstar to become evil; Goose was out of the barracks at the time, and thus, not exposed. Shane often acts as a Bounty Hunter to capture his former comrades. His implant allows him to adapt to any attack or hostile environment through defensive Involuntary Shapeshifting, which can cause him to transform into strange (but always humanoid) creatures. Goose is also a Chick Magnet; several of the show's female characters are attracted to him, including his teammate Niko.

Tropes associated with Shane:

Voiced by: Laura Dean (English), Alma Nuri and Sylvia Garcel (Latin-American Spanish)

A redheaded(?) Action Girl whose implant enhances—and sometimes weaponizes—her inborn Psychic Powers. Born on an ill-fated colony planet, Niko was raised on the mystical world of Xanadu by a mysterious mentor named Ariel. Niko is also an Adventurer Archaeologist whose knowledge of alien cultures proves invaluable to the team.

Tropes associated with Niko:

  • Action Girl: And how! Mandell explicitly designed her to be "one of the guys" as far as being able to fight, as he did not like the "token girl as Damsel in Distress" trope common to the era.
  • Adventurer Archaeologist: Her primary specialty is xenoarcheology, analyzing artifacts and structures from ancient alien civilizations. Her retrocognitive abilities were very useful on those digs.
  • All There in the Manual: The series never mentions that she was from a destroyed colony. This detail is only present in supplementary material Mandell released later.
  • Battle Couple: With Shane.
  • BFG: Her weapon is a double-barreled shotgun.
  • Doomed Hometown: The fate of the colony world where Niko was born.
  • Fainting Seer: Mostly averted, but she sometimes can get a Poke in the Third Eye by someone more powerful like Scarecrow or the Queen.
  • Fiery Redhead: Normally, a subversion as she is patient and slow to lose her cool. If she does get to the boiling point? Clear the sector.
    • It's actually not clear if she's a red head or a brunette - depending on the animators and artists. At least once Shane Gooseman actually described her as a brunette.
  • Loving a Shadow: A fairly mild and harmless example - it is implied that she may have had a crush on Zachary Foxx when they first started working together, but never acted on it since he was married with kids.
  • Mage Marksman: If her shotgun or martial arts training doesn't do the job, her psionics will.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed - Her name and appearance were Mandell's homage to the the singer Nico from the Velvet Underground.
  • Only One Name: In the series proper. Since she was from a planet of mystics, she never had to use one. A "surname" of sorts, "Dal'Ariel," sometimes shows up on fan sites and Fan Fic. It is pure Fanon
  • Psychic Powers: She was born with them, but her implant amplifies them. Psychometry is her primary ability, followed by telekinesis and limited telepathy.
  • Psychometry: One of her primary abilities. She can get vague impressions of where an object has been or what's happened at a site without her badge, but when she uses the implant, the impressions become very exact and detailed.

Walter "Doc" Hartford
Voiced by: Hubert Kelly (English), Humberto Solórzano (Latin-American Spanish)

A doctorate in computer psychiatry and graduate of Mrs. Abercrombie's Charm and Finishing School, Doc is a combination of The Smart Guy (although all the Rangers are pretty intelligent) and Plucky Comic Relief. This Billy Dee Williams lookalike is a wisecracking Techno Wizard whose implant gives him control over any computer by using the "Tweakers", a group of talking, sprite-like "programs" he created. Doc's sense of humor has made him a fan favorite.

Tropes associated with Doc:

  • Badass Bookworm: The dude is a Ph.D., a skilled hacker even without the implant, attended charm school...and can still brawl his way through a pile of mooks with the best of them.
  • Badass Normal: While Doc has a Series 5 implant, it is practically useless in a fight (And the biggest hint the series gave that the Crown Agents weren't robots). He makes do with his fists, a blaster, his copious wit, and a sword...and still manages to keep up with the other three.
  • Catchphrase: "The doctor will operate."
  • Chained to a Railway: In "Fire and Iron".
  • The Charmer: Like Alec Hardison in Leverage, his skill in hacking is supplanted by his ability to schmooze and bluff his way into places he should not be entering.
  • The Dandy: When the team are given disguises as Zanguil traders, Doc is the most enthusiastic about wearing something flashy, and even gets into an argument with one of the Queen's Mooks over his clothing getting ripped. Likewise, he (sarcastically) contemplates about what the proper attire would be to wear to his execution on Tarkon.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Like many shows of The '80s, most characters could get a zinger in, but Doc was far and away the snarkiest. At least three-quarters of his dialogue is delivered in Sarcasm Mode.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: Doc is an incredibly skilled fencer for someone who picked it up in charm school.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: He's normally the Plucky Comic Relief and grossly underpowered compared to his teammates. However, he proved in "Heartbeat" to be capable of taking down the Scarecrow single-handedly if pushed.
  • Minored In Ass Kicking: "Miss Abercrombie's Charm School" apparently taught acrobatics, diplomacy, and how to sword-fight.
  • Mysterious Past: Mandell and company explored the Backstory of the other three Rangers with "Phoenix," "Ariel," and the Supertrooper duology. By comparison, Doc's background went unexplored.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: His resemblance to Billy Dee Williams.
  • Playful Hacker: Zig-Zagged. A first rate smart-ass and computer hacker, he'll sometimes leave a prank behind in an enemy computer system. Sometimes, though, he's got too much sympathy for the AI to treat it badly, or just doesn't have the opportunity to set up the prank.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: He's the Ranger most prone to Casual Danger Dialogue.
  • The Smart Guy: With a doctorate, he's the team member with the most formal education. In practice, he and Niko toss the ball back and forth, as their specialties are very different.
  • Technopath: His Series Five ability is summoning "tweaker" programs (who are just as sarcastic as he is) to infiltrate computer systems. Each "tweaker" has a different specialty; Lifeline retrieves data, Pathfinder sneaks past security systems, Firefly attacks the systems. He has other tweakers, but they don't get as much attention.
  • Techno Wizard: His specialty is getting machines to do exactly what he wants them to do. His "tweakers" are handled like summoning magic. They just come out of his computer diagnostic unit and not a spell book.
  • Token Minority: Doc seems to be the only non-white human in the galaxy (except for Jackhammer of the Supertroopers and one shot villain Dr. Ograbgo).
  • Trading Bars for Stripes: Possibly. Word of God says he enlisted "reluctantly", he makes several comments indicating he's really looking forward to leaving military service, and he is a first rate Con Artist on top of being a hacker.
  • Upper-Class Wit: Far and away the snarkiest member of the team, and what little we know of his background (as well as Word of God) indicates he came from wealth.

    BETA Personnel 

Commander Joseph Walsh
Voiced by: Earl Hammond (English), Héctor Lee (Latin-American Spanish)

Head of BETA and the Rangers' commanding officer. Serves as Da Chief. Before the Galaxy Rangers were started, he headed up the Supertrooper project that created Goose with Commander Negata. He appears to have a personal rivalry with Senator Whiner dating back to the project.

Tropes associated with Commander Walsh:

  • Benevolent Boss: Walsh is a Reasonable Authority Figure who does his best to protect the Rangers from political pressure, even if it means bending the rules once in a while. However, he'll still chew them a new one if they go too far off the reservation.
  • The Chains of Commanding: He has to field the massive amount of political heat that's put on the Series 5 project, and was in charge of the ill-fated Supertrooper project.
  • Da Chief: He is in charge of the Series Five project and the military operations of the Bureau of Extraterrestrial Affairs, which means overseeing his team of Cowboy Cops and Surprisingly Elite Cannon Fodder.
  • Four-Star Badass: "Supertroopers" proved he was more than capable of holding his own when outnumbered and outgunned by the renegade supersoldiers.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: Played with in "Supertroopers." Whiner attempts to blackmail Walsh by revealing he knows Shane's parentage. Turns out Walsh is Shane's genetic father. Shane never finds this out.
  • McCloud Speech: Given to the other three Rangers in "Psychocrypt" after they sneak Zachary out of BETA.
  • Parental Substitute: Walsh considers Shane the son he never had. Of course, there are reasons for it.

Voiced by: Sandy Marshall

A bumbling android who helps the Rangers and their friends in a few episodes. He was created by Q-Ball as a helper around Longshot but wanted to become a Galaxy Ranger in full. At the end of "Tune Up," he earned the title (at least an honorary one).

Tropes associated with Buzzwang:

  • Captain Ersatz: He's almost certainly based on C3PO of Star Wars fame.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: At the climax of "Tune Up", Buzzwang self-destructs so that Lazarus Slade can't use him to steal BETA's secrets. It works out better than usual, though: Not only is Buzzwang totally rebuilt, but his heroism earns him a place among the Galaxy Rangers.
  • Kid-Appeal Character: The reason he exists. And a substantial portion of the fanbase will never forgive him for it.
  • Robot Buddy: To the Rangers.
  • Sixth Ranger: He was designed as a "fifth Ranger" to assist the Series 5 team, and his debut episode showed that he wished to be considered a Ranger in his own right.
  • Totally Radical: Buzzwang likes to breakdance. Really.


A brilliant inventor who works out of the Longshot lab in the Grand Canyon, Q-Ball creates the Rangers' equipment. He also built Buzzwang.

Tropes associated with Q-Ball:

Dr. Owen Negata

Co-creator of the Supertroopers. Fatally injured when the Supertroopers revolted, his brain was able to be preserved and placed in a robotic shell. He serves as BETA's tactical commander and chief strategist.

Tropes associated with Dr. Negata:

  • Brain in a Jar: All that's left of Dr. Negata when Gravestone attacks him after the Batch 22 incident.
  • Morally Ambiguous Doctorate: Becoming involved with a Super Soldier program pretty much lands him here, especially when he casually talks about using Goose as a control for an experiment.

Icarus and Winter

Two talking dolphins who live in a tank of water at Longshot. Goose has a special affinity with them.

Tropes associated with Icarus and Winter:

    Zach's Family 

Eliza Foxx

Voiced by: Laura Dean (English), Sylvia Garcel (Latin-American Spanish)

Zachary's beloved wife, and mother to Zach Jr. and Jessica Foxx. In the pilot episode, the family was headed to Kirwin when they were ambushed by Kidd and his space pirates. She was able to get her children onto an escape pod, but sacrificed herself to let them get away. Things only became worse after Kidd sold her to the Queen of the Crown. The Queen was able to place her in the Psychocrypt, proving that humans were ideal specimens for the nightmarish device. Zachary was able to get her body away from the Queen, but the crystal containing her mind and spirit is being held by the Queen.

Tropes associated with Eliza:

  • And I Must Scream: "Psychocrypt" demonstrates that she is aware of what is going on around her under the imprisonment of the Queen, including the Queen's delight in using her against her husband...but cannot stop any of it.

Zachary Foxx Jr.

Voiced by: Bob Bottone (English), Luis Alfonso Mendoza (Latin-American Spanish)

Zachary's teenaged son. Outgoing and works as Q-Ball's lab assistant on occasion. He plans on following in his father's footsteps when he's old enough to enlist.

Tropes associated with Little Zach:

Jessica Foxx

Voiced by: Laura Dean

Zachary and Eliza's younger child. Unlike her brother, her inclination are more for the sciences and research.

Tropes associated with Jessica:

  • Child Prodigy: She is a student at the exclusive Albert Einstein School for the Gifted.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Invasion"
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Her science project in "Invasion" was so effective, it summoned a Q-like alien child to send his toys over and try to get the dish for himself.
  • I Miss Mom: In "Invasion," she is the only child there whose parents are unable to come to the science fair, and visibly cringes when a classmate asks about her mom.

    The Rangers' Alien Friends 

Waldo Zeptic

Voiced by: Henry Mandell (English), Carlos Magaña (Latin-American Spanish)

One of the "two peaceful aliens" who warn Earth about the Crown Empire and go on to befriend the Rangers. He is an Andorian, a species whose hat is scientific development, logic, and math. He designed Kirwin's defense shield and the super-fast hyperdrive traded to Earth in exchange for an alliance.

Tropes associated with Waldo:
  • Ambadassador: While Waldo considered fighting to be "uncivilized," it did not prevent him from self-defense in the slightest.
  • Deadpan Snarker: When told that the Mindnet device could theoretically control intelligent life, he quips "how fortunate Senator Whiner is safe."

Voiced by: Bob Bottone (English), Gabriel Cobayassi (Latin-American Spanish)

The other "peaceful alien." His species, the Kiwi, are shorter than most humans, good-natured, and have the hat of growing Fantastic Fruits and Vegetables. However, Kiwi are much tougher than they look, and Zozo is the finest example of it. Despite being an Ambassador, Zozo frequently accompanies the Rangers on missions and is always up for a party, a good joke... or a fight.

Tropes associated with Zozo:

  • Ambadassador: Even more so than his counterpart, Waldo, Zozo does not shy away from fighting. In several episodes, he is also addressed as Ranger Zozo, indicating he is at least an honorary, if not full, Galaxy Ranger in his own right.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: He's a cheerful, fun-loving, laid-back guy... but don't piss him off.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: Even in the middle of a fight, he's got a big smile on his face and cheerfully trolls opponents three times his size into making foolish mistakes.
  • Hobbits: His race, the Kiwis, are Badass Hobbits.

The Kiwi Kids

Voiced by: Corinne Orr

Tropes associated with the Kiwi Kids:

  • Hobbits: Kiwi are, generally speaking, cheerful Badass Hobbits.
  • Tagalong Kids: They were usually accompanying their uncle on something that was supposed to be harmless, but end up in the middle of the crazy and loving every second.

Geezi the Pendulont

Voiced by: Henry Mandell

This elephant-like alien is the Rangers' primary informant on the outlaw planet of Tortuna. Most of the time, he is very content to stay away from wherever the shooting is. Unfortunately, whenever the Rangers are in his vicinity, he's usually caught in the crossfire.

    The Rangers' Other Allies 

Princess Maya

Voiced by: Maia Danziger

Princess Maya hails from Tarkon, a planet of Human Aliens. An aggressive Action Girl, she was captured from her homeworld and forced into a sadistic Blood Sport. This showed her the wonders and dangers of the wider galaxy, and she became determined to protect her people by importing and learning to use technology, despite their ancient ban on such things. This has caused her to revolt against her father and be snubbed by most members of the nobility... until she helps the Rangers prevent Scarecrow from destroying the Heart of Tarkon.

Tropes associated with Princess Maya:

  • Action Girl: We first see her (in "Games") as a captive in a sadistic tournament that The General forced captives to play to the death.
  • Alien Princess: Despite resembling a human woman, she's the princess of an alien planet that forbids technology.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: The Scarecrow briefly scrambled her mind in "Scarecrow's Revenge".
  • Empathic Weapon: Her staff.
  • Give Geeks a Chance: She initially seemed to think Doc was a useless goof...until he turned on the charm, took her for a spin on the dance floor, then single-handedly beat a Crown spy in a swordfight.
  • Human Alien: Like all her people, she's physically identical to humans.
  • Rebellious Princess: She defies her whole society, including her own father, to bring technology to Tarkon.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: After she and the Rangers fought their way free, she was determined to use the technology she saw to save her people from interstellar threats - even if it meant open rebellion against her father.

Annie O

Voiced by: Maia Danziger

A Determined Homesteader on the planet of Ozark. She was instrumental in helping her isolationist colony join with the League of Planets.

Tropes associated with Annie:

  • Action Girl: She carries a shotgun, has excellent beast handling skills, and is perfectly willing to call What the Hell, Hero? on her own community to defend Shane.
  • Beast and Beauty: In "Edge of Darkness".
  • Ship Tease: She and Shane were definitely attracted to one another...
  • Star-Crossed Lovers:...but her place was on Ozark and his was in space.
  • Women Are Wiser: When McCross claimed Shane's horse was actually his, Annie's response: "Oh really? Ride him! Horses don't lie!"


Voiced by: Maia Danziger

Tribal shaman on the Death World of Bistee-Fenokee.

Tropes associated with Mistwalker:

  • Hulk Speak: Justified somewhat, as she hasn't been exposed to much of the language.
  • Never Mess with Granny: Audra thinks of her as a "little old grandmother" and village shaman...until she uses her knowledge of the Death World she lives on to really make the Black Hole Gang sorry.
  • You Never Asked: When she reveals that she's learned to speak Audra's language.

Audra Miles

Voiced by: Maia Danziger

A BETA scientist who studies sentient life on remote worlds. Unfortunately, her work with the natives sometimes causes her to face dangers from the "civilized" parts of the galaxy.

Tropes associated with Audra:

  • Action Girl: "Mistwalker" had her in the thick of the fighting against the Black Hole Gang. Granted, Mistwalker and the Death World did the bulk of the heavy lifting. However, when the sentient wolf-like Lycans were threatened during "In Sheep's Clothing," she breaks into a heavily-guarded corporate facility looking for answers.
  • Adventurer Archaeologist: Technically, an adventure xeno-anthropologist.

Sheriff Bob Ladd

A widower who moved to the planet of Nebraska to police the town of Frontier and raise his little girl.

Amy Ladd

Bob Ladd's small daughter.

Tropes associated with Amy Ladd:


Amy Ladd's dragon-like pet.

Tropes associated with Pinkwing:

Aidan Subtract

A harmless Cloud Cuckoolander with a talent for inventing fantastic machines. He comes across as a Bungling Inventor because they sometimes need a bit more adjustment...but he's a Gadgeteer Genius on the second try. Unfortunately, his soft spot for Evil Twin Jackie gets him in trouble.

Tropes associated with Aidan Subtract:

  • Bungling Inventor: He seems to be this...until he hammers out that last bug.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: His invention ideas are so strange one wonders if he's all there...
  • Evil Twin: Aidan is a peaceful, law-abiding, and somewhat eccentric inventor. His brother Jackie is running an organized crime syndicate.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: When his stuff works.
  • Medicine Show: How he demonstrates his inventions, including his rainmaker.
  • Mobile Kiosk: Aiden works out of one of these, hawking his inventions in "Rainmaker".


Niko's mentor and mother figure. Because she was such a standout character, she's a common guest-star in Fan Fic.

Tropes associated with Ariel:

Roy McIntyre

A prospector aided by his faithful robot burro, he wanders planets looking for Green Rocks, and sometimes winds up with more than he bargained for.

Tropes Associated with Roy:
  • Coincidence Magnet: He stumbles on a cache of starstones, only to have been followed by the Black Hole Gang. Another attempt uncovered an ancient citadel. A third attempt uncovered a planet loaded with starstones, and he ended up mayor of a boomtown.

Cody "Wildfire" Carson

Voiced by: Earl Hammond

Technically a criminal, but more often an ally of the Rangers.

  • Mysterious Past: The only thing we really know is that he's a smuggler, has a ridiculously long rap sheet (mostly customs and docking violations), and seems to know Zach a little too well.
  • Noodle Incident: He seemed to be awfully familiar with Zachary and had obviously been keeping tabs on him. We never learn the specifics of why. We also do not know why he happened to have a frilly dance-hall girl outfit in the back of his ship, either.

    The Queen of the Crown and Her Forces 

The Queen of the Crown
Voiced by: Corinne Orr (English), Liza Willert (Latin-American Spanish)

Ruler of a vast and crumbling Empire, the sorceress-Queen fuses magic and technology in a nightmarish combination in order to stabilize and keep hold of her territory. The culmination of this is the Psychocrypt, which mashes sentient beings down for Life Energy and uses the resulting Soul Jar to power Slaverlord constructs through which she can see, hear, and speak. She carpet-bombed the planet Tortuna, rendering it uninhabitable aside from a few domed cities. After bringing the Girkin race to near-extinction in her thirst for Slaverlords, she has turned her eyes to humans, who have the unfortunate distinction of being the best known candidate for Slaverlord manufacture.

Tropes associated with The Queen of the Crown:

  • Arch-Enemy: Is this to Zachary Foxx.
  • Big Bad: The Queen is the most powerful member of the series' extensive Rogues Gallery, and many of the other major villains end up working for her at least once.
  • Bring Him to Me: She wants the Rangers to come to her, or to be brought to her—alive and undamaged. After all, you can't make Slaverlords out of them dead.
  • The Empire: She runs it.
  • Everyone Calls Her "Barkeep": She's never given a name, only being addressed by her title.

Crown Agents

The foot soldiers of The Empire. They're everywhere the Crown has influence, and often commanded by a Slaverlord.

Tropes associated with Crown Agents:

  • Bad Cop/Incompetent Cop: They indulge in "routine torture," regularly accept bribes, and seem unable to tie their shoes without a Slaverlord giving orders.
  • Mooks

Slaver Lords

Slaver Lords are psychic projections controlled by the Queen, powered by the life force trapped in a psycho crystal. A psycho crystal is a crystal full of life force stolen from a living being. The Slaver Lords act as the eyes, ears, and mouth for the Queen.

Tropes associated with Slaver Lords:

  • And I Must Scream: Maybe it's unique to Eliza, but "Psychocrypt" made it clear that she was conscious and able to know what was going on.
  • The Faceless: Except when the Queen is using one of them.
  • Fate Worse than Death: They are either political enemies, or just the "right" species. They process involves getting their souls forcibly extracted. The process is hideously painful, and then while conscious and aware of what's been done, they are forced to be the eyes, ears, and enforcers of the tyrant that inflicted the fate.
  • Life Energy: What the crystals are.
  • Mook Lieutenant
  • Powered by a Forsaken Child: The crystals powering them are made from forcibly-extracted souls.
  • Soul Jar: The crystals themselves.


Ryker Kilbane
Voiced by: Henry Mandell

A brutal, bloodthirsty product of the Supertrooper program, he and Goose were bitter rivals even before the riot. When Corrupt Bureaucrat Whiner pumped Psycho Serum into the barracks, Killbane accused Whiner, Walsh, and Negata of trying to kill them and started the revolt. After escaping, he became a notorious mercenary willing to take the nastiest jobs for a good price.

Tropes associated with Ryker Kilbane:

  • Arch-Enemy: Is this to Shane Gooseman.
  • Cain and Abel: Goose and Ryker were opposites in style and approach at Wolf Den, but they were nominally on the same side then. When the riot happened, Killbane led the Supertrooper revolt against their creators, while Shane was the only one to stay loyal.


A quiet and supportive type, despite her brutal origin as a Supertrooper, Darkstar has the ability to temporarily blind people. Goose had fallen for Darkstar back at the academy and tried to convince her to stay, but his inability to admit those feelings led her to leaving with Stingray.

Tropes associated with Darkstar:


Not as aggressive as Killbane or actively looking for revenge against BETA, Stingray took his girlfriend, Darkstar, and headed off for parts unknown. He has the ability to shoot Eye Beams when he lifts his sunglasses.

Tropes associated with Stingray:


Short and surly, Brainchild was designed as a tactician. A complete sociopath who sees everything and everyone as part of a strategy.

Tropes associated with Brainchild:


A very large Supertrooper, but none-too-bright. Has the ability to turn his body into rock temporarily.

Tropes associated with Gravestone:
  • Dumb Muscle: He's clearly the strongest of the Supertroopers, but he's dumb as a brick.


One of the renegade Supertroopers who joined with Killbane. His abilities are unknown.

Tropes associated with Jackhammer:
  • Token Minority: Along with Doc, he's one of the few non-white humans in the series.


A vicious sociopath, Chimera is Killbane's right hand woman when the renegades capture Senator Whiner and the Batch 22 Superweapon. Has the ability to Mind Trick others into doing her bidding.

Tropes associated with Chimera:
  • I Lied: In response to handing over a biological weapon: "Only weaklings keep bargains! And Supertroopers are the strongest of all!"
  • Mind Rape: Against Senator Whiner, to get him to steal the biological weapon.

    Other Assorted Villains 

Captain Kidd
Voiced by: Earl Hammond

A Plitsky space pirate. Looks like an oversized chicken, and is really a coward when he isn't sitting on the bridge of his flagship, the Iron Falcon. He was the one who attacked Zachary and his family in the pilot episode, but cut a deal with BETA in "New Frontier" (the second episode) after being double-crossed. This begins both his Heel–Face Revolving Door and his Villain Decay.

Tropes associated with Captain Kidd:

  • Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal: In "Phoenix," the Queen deprives him of his "booty," (the captured ship) and stiffs him on payment. The ticked-off captain decides he's had enough and starts firing on the Crown Destroyer.
  • Space Pirates: He commands a ship full of them.

Lazarus Slade

The series' resident Mad Scientist, Slade is also notable for his habit of teaming up with other members of the Rogues Gallery and his crush on the Queen of the Crown.

Tropes associated with Lazarus Slade:

  • Mad Scientist: All his schemes revolve around either creating or stealing new inventions for evil purposes.
  • Magitek: In "Badge of Power", he and Mogul combine their powers to create the titular badge.
  • Power Copying: The Badge of Power lets Slade use the Rangers' abilities.
  • Southern Gentleman: He tries to act like one sometimes.
  • Too Dumb to Live: He's great at his mad science, but proposing marriage to the Queen would certainly hint at a broad lack of common sense.
  • Villainous Crush: As noted, he has one on the Queen.
  • Villain Team-Up: He's marginally competent on his own, but has a tendency to ally himself with other rogues. Cue the Rangers' Mass "Oh, Crap!" reaction when they trail him in "Aces and Apes", only to find he's teamed up with the Scarecrow.


Tropes associated with Scarecrow:

  • Eldritch Abomination: A remnant of a war fought millions of years in the past, he is more alien than most people can comprehend.
  • Evil Laugh: Often. Particularly memorable example: he does one directly into the camera at the end of his first episode. Also see Man on Fire below.
  • Forgotten Superweapon: Before he was accidentally revived.
  • Man on Fire: Scarecrow briefly becomes one in his debut episode. It barely even slows him down; he runs from the scene doing one of his trademark evil laughs, then shows up (in disguise) as the episode ends.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: His origin. He was sealed under the planet Tarkon until the Kiwi accidentally woke him up.
  • Skull for a Head: And it's blood red for extra scariness.
  • Time Abyss: Observes that he is feeling talkative after a hundred million years in the ground.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: He's shown doing it several times, most notably at the end of his debut episode.


An alien member of Daisy O'Mega's Black Hole Gang.

Tropes associated with McCross:

Daisy O'Mega

Voiced by: Maia Danziger

The leader of the outlaw horde called the Black Hole Gang... and yet another member of Shane's harem.

Tropes associated with Daisy:
  • Evil Redhead: She is leader of the nastiest criminal gang in the galaxy. However, she turns out to be one of the most sympathetic members of the Rogues Gallery.
  • Femme Fatale: She is not at all subtle about hitting on Shane, much to Niko's discomfort.
  • Mating Dance: Shane uses this to "distract" Daisy, and it's ambiguous about whether it stopped at dancing.
  • We Can Rule Together: "Come with me, Shane. Together we could have endless worlds to explore."


Mogul, a four-armed alien, is the last survivor of a race of evil sorcerers who once controlled the Sorcerer system. His crimes include enslaving the Ewok-like Basooti (because the starstones, which grow only on Basoot, enhance his powers) and kidnapping an Energy Being called the "Lady of Light" from her home universe (because she could, well, enhance his powers).

Tropes associated with Mogul:

  • Last of His Kind: Once, his race controlled an entire solar system. Now he's the only one left.


Mogul's long-suffering henchcreature.

Tropes associated with Larry:

The General

A one-eyed alien villain with a military motif.

Tropes associated with The General:

  • Arm Cannon: Of the second type (laser gun mounted on his hand).
  • Cyclops: He has only one eye.


A flamboyant, felinoid alien who has the appearance and demeanor of a demented game show host. He's a powerful (if eccentric) villain in his first episode, "The Power Within", then becomes a more comic figure in later appearances.

Tropes associated with Nimrod:


A purple-skinned alien gangster who owns the planet Nebraska.

Tropes associated with Brappo:

  • Death Course: The grounds of his estate are guarded by a very expensive, and rather lethal, art collection.
  • Wicked Cultured: His ill-gotten gains are mostly re-invested in his expensive-but-lethal art collection.
  • Yes-Man: His butler, Peters...though Peters indulges in as much sarcasm as he can manage doing so.

Mr. Rancid

Tropes associated with Mr. Rancid:

Jackie Subtract

Tropes associated with Jackie:

  • Evil Twin: To Aidan, as noted above. Played with in that Jackie is introduced earlier, and appears much more often, than his kindly brother.
