Click here to see their morphed form 

  • The Atoner: As revealed in the first issue of Go Go, he was a bully and a Jerk Jock when he was younger, and has since dedicated himself to being better.
  • The Chains Of Command: His greatest fear is failing as the leader of the Rangers, but can't bring himself to say it outright to the team because he's worried about how it will affect them.
  • The Determinator: Much like his TV show counterpart.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: Wields the Power Sword.
  • Hot-Blooded: This was part of his characterization on the TV show, but it's much more prominent here. When he's first introduced in Go Go, one of his dislikes is “being told to 'calm down'".
  • The Leader: As is the case for most Red Rangers. He's also a Deconstruction of sorts, as Jason is still a fifteen-year-old boy with much to figure out. Especially in Go Go, where he can often come across as bossy or distant.
  • Mid-Season Upgrade: He gets access to the Green Ranger's Dragon Shield, though under very different circumstances, in Issue #26.
  • Mission Control: Takes on this role when Zordon is temporarily missing.
  • Oblivious to Love: Go Go reveals that Trini has a crush on him, which he doesn't find out until Go Go #15.
  • Playing with Fire: His Omega Ranger Element is fire.
  • Relationship Upgrade: With Trini in the main series comics.

Zack Taylor Omega Air Ranger

Click here to see their morphed form 

  • Adaptational Expansion: Zack is much more fleshed out here. While he's still high-energy and friendly, he clashes with the rest of the team and often wants the team to use their powers to help improve the world outside of stopping monsters. In other words, the sort of person who would want to attend a Peace Conference.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: He's much more distrusting of Tommy when he first joins the team and openly confronts Jason's leadership choices more than once.
  • An Axe to Grind: His power axe.
  • Blow You Away: When he becomes the black Omega Ranger, his element is Air.
  • Extracurricular Enthusiast: Aside from Ranger duties, classes, and his part-time job at the Juice Bar, he's very active in the Angel Grove community. In his words in Go Go #1, “Everyone's my best friend”.
  • The Lancer: Passionate and personable, compared to the more reserved and action-oriented Jason. They're still True Companions, but they disagree more often.
  • Pungeon Master: Many of his quips during the Monster of the Week battles, which more than often illicit groans and sighs from the rest of the team.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Due to traveling to another dimension, he temporarily gets Kimberly's powers, including her pink uniform and bow. He pulls it off.
  • Relationship Upgrade: With Trini in the Pink miniseries.
  • The Un Chosen One: An interesting variation. He was Rita Repulsa's first choice to be the Green Ranger. He refused, and so she kidnapped and bewitched Tommy into the role. Zack is sometimes shown as resenting Tommy after seeing how powerful he could have been.

Kimberly Ann Hart

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tumblr_oqz2xykm191sp5jt1o4_1280.jpg
Click here to see their morphed form 

  • Action Girl: Of course.
  • Badass Biker: Her solo series shows that sometime after leaving the team she has acquired and uses a motorcycle.
  • Calling the Old Man Out: Frustrated at her parents' inability to be adults, Kim eventually yells at her mom over both of them trying to pit Kim against each other during their divorce.
  • The Chick: The most well-rounded emotionally of the six Rangers.
  • Friendly Sniper: Kim made some impressive shots in the show but in the ongoing and Pink it's been upgraded to near-superhuman aim.
  • Girly Bruiser: Much like her TV counterpart.
  • The Lancer: During the Necessary Evil arc, she has become the second in command to Tommy with Jason and Zack gone. Where as Tommy is hard on himself to live up to Jason's lead, she's hard on the newbies who she feels need to live up to their predecessors.
  • The Leader: Of the All-New Power Rangers Team in the Pink Minisieries.
  • Passionate Sports Girl: Angel Grove's most famous resident gymnast, as always.
  • Spoiled Sweet: The Hart family is fairly well-off, but she's kind and level-headed. When she first came to Angel Grove, the others believed her to be a Rich Bitch after she accidentally caused Zack to be fired from his job at a restaurant, but she's apologetic and soon becomes a part of the group.
  • Stepford Smiler: Her recent move to Angel Grove, her parents' divorce, and her failed first relationship with Matt all take a toll on her.
  • The Straight and Arrow Path: Her Power Bow.
  • Valley Girl: Downplayed in comparison to her TV show counterpart, but still present.

     Blue Ranger  

Billy Cranston

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tumblr_oqz2xykm191sp5jt1o3_1280.jpg
Click here to see their morphed form 

  • Badass Bookworm: When he first becomes a Ranger, he spends much of his time researching The Hero's Journey to better himself in the field.
  • Dressed in Layers: A spotlight issue reveals he sometimes stays morphed underneath his civilian clothes, hiding it with a hologram due to his lack of confidence in himself.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: With Trini. They're best friends even before they become Rangers, bonding over being the quieter, nerdy members of the group.
  • The Smart Guy: Wouldn't be Billy otherwise. In addition to his technological prowess and tendency to speak in Techno Babble, he's also very clever, finding creative ways to use the monsters' abilities to his advantage.
  • Teen Genius: Of course. Also deconstructed, as Billy feels less confident as a fighter because of his lack of athletic prowess, and often feels out of place with the others.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Doesn't want to disappoint his father.

    Yellow Ranger  

Trini Kwan Omega Earth Ranger

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tumblr_oqz2xykm191sp5jt1o1_1280.jpg
Click here to see their morphed form 

  • Adaptational Expansion: While her TV counterpart was seen as kind of a Flat Character, this Trini has much more personality and is much more of a Deadpan Snarker.
  • Adorkable: has Nicknames for all the Zords and blushes around Jason in early issues of Go-Go.
  • The Big Girl: The most grounded member of the team, but also a powerful fighter and quick thinker.
  • A Day in the Limelight: The colorswap story where she becomes the Red Ranger seems to be heavily focused on her and Jason (who is now Yellow) as they are stuck in another dimension and separated from their teammates, forcing her to confront her feelings for Jason.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: Go Go reveals that she has a crush on Jason, which gets revealed to him in Go Go #15 when a power swap with Jason allows them to read each other's mind.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Her Omega Ranger element is Earth.
  • The Heart: Kyle Higgins confirms her status as this.
  • The Medic: Her father is a doctor, and she uses some of what he taught her to help Tommy early on.
  • Knife Nut: Her Power Daggers.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: With Billy. They usually pair together for non-Ranger activities, and he's even her date to their homecoming dance.
  • Relationship Upgrade: With Zack in the Pink miniseries, with Jason in the main series comics.
  • Wrench Wench: She's studied the inner workings of the Dragonzord, and later, the Black Dragon armor, and she's the first one to realize that the two are connected. She even reprogrammed the Black Dragon to sync to her and wipes the floor with Rita's minions even forcing Rita herself to fall back!

     Green Ranger / White Ranger  

Tommy Oliver

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/boomtommy.jpg
Click here to see their morphed form 

  • Bad Dreams: A side effect of Rita's mind control is that he's constantly haunted by nightmares of Rita coming back into his life, and early on, would have hallucinations of the witch taunting him.
  • The Chains Of Command: He experiences this once he takes over for Jason as Leader, feeling like an inferior successor whenever things don't go perfectly and is very hard on himself.
  • Cool Big Bro: Though they're the same age, he acts this to Billy after the events of the Coinless arc, taking him to work out. It becomes clear that they became closer after being trapped in an alternate universe together, which makes it even harder on Billy when Drakkon murders Tommy.
  • Character Death: In Issue #25. More specifically, he's stabbed In the Back with Saba's body to kick off the Shattered Grid event and is revived near the end of that arc.
  • Character Development: At the beginning of the series he's very much a lone wolf and believes he needs to deal with his problems by himself. He eventually realizes that his friends are his strength and he should rely on them when he needs help. He tries to impart this wisdom to Drakkon in the finale of Shattered Grid with no success.
  • The Determinator: Wouldn't be Tommy Oliver otherwise.
  • Disappeared Dad: His TV counterpart was Happily Adopted by the Olivers. That's presumably still the case here, but as far as we've seen, his mother is a single parent.
  • Dual Wielding: Uses both the Dragon Dagger and Saba against Lord Drakkon.
  • Eating Lunch Alone: In Issue #1, he arrives in the cafeteria just in time for the bell to ring, prompting the other five Rangers to head back to class. It's completely justified based on the school schedule, but through the lens of his own anxieties and self-doubts, manifesting as Rita Repulsa, it feels like the more traditional use of this trope, feeling isolated and unwanted.
  • Future Me Scares Me: His reaction to Lord Drakkon. Tommy isn't concerned with becoming like Drakkon, but he's still frightening nonetheless.
  • Ineffectual Loner: Tommy tries to keep to himself, but eventually he comes to appreciate being part of the team.
  • Race Lift: Of sorts. In the original show, Tommy was Native American, but played by a Caucasian actor. In the comic, Tommy is typically drawn as being darker-skinned than Jason, Billy, or Kimberly.
  • Really Moves Around: Before coming to Angel Grove, he'd lived in Boston, London, and Philadelphia.
  • Reformed, but Rejected: Both by his teammates, especially Jason and Zack, and by himself as he struggles to forgive himself for his actions under Rita's spell.
  • Sixth Ranger: Obviously
  • The Sleepless: After he becomes the White Ranger he finds that he does not need to sleep and has boundless energy even when unmorphed.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/e8dc9a93_fc85_495e_8dd4_8203759479a0.jpeg
some caption text
  • Adaptational Angst Upgrade: It was alluded to very lightly in the anniversary special but more explored starting with issue #40. Aisha is frustrated with not clicking right away with the team, feeling like a in-universe Replacement Scrappy in the eyes of Kimberly and the other veteran rangers.

     Omega Water Ranger 

Kiya

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/6f2f8de3_a13a_4f9a_b036_9f4ef4165b9a.jpeg
An alien who joins Zack, Trini, and Jason when they become when they leave Angel Grove and go to a planet called Safe Haven.

  • Foil To Rocky, Adam, and particularly Aisha! Like them, she's the newcomer to the team after they parted ways, however while the three new Mighty Morphin' Rangers are having a hard time bonding and fitting into the team dynamic making their teamwork sloppy in comparison to how the original team worked together, Kiya seems to be an Instant Expert who becomes fast friends with Jason, Trini, and Zack, making their missions smoother and more successful.
  • Making a Splash: Her element is water.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Her small stature is explicitly why the semi-gigantic Garrison Vox underestimates her. All is takes is one punch from her to take him down.
  • Sixth Ranger: Well fourth, but no matter at what point she joined the other three, they were already experienced as a team before her.
  • Walking Spoiler: There's not much to say about Kiya that isn't a spoiler.
  • Water Is Blue: The Omega Rangers are all element themed. Her element is water while her suit is a light shade of blue much like the other female blue rangers.
  • Worf Effect: She’s on the delivering end of this to Vox who she beats after he’s established as a dangerous brute who’s single handedly giving trouble to an entire village.

Allies

     Zordon 

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/go_go_power_rangers_19_featured.jpg
Present Day

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zordon.jpg
Zordon Before Being Trapped in Time Warp

  • Expy: He seems to have similarities to modern revelations Professor X. Both are mentors who have been highly regarded by their young recruits for a long time but both have also recently had dark secrets revealed about them causing Broken Pedestal.
  • My Greatest Failure: He kept the 1969 team a secret from the current team because he is ashamed of what happened as a result of his actions.
  • Mythology Gag: Subtle, but it's there. Pre-time warp Zordon is shown to have a white-and-gold mantle, the main color scheme of his primary Sentai counterpart Mysterious Sage Barza, footage of whom was used to represent his pre-time warp self in viewing globe footage in the show. Furthermore, the mantle covers his right side, much like Barza's own mantle.

     Alpha 5 
  • Mission Control: A given but he takes over and shares this role with Jason when Zordon is unavailable for a stretch of time due to Lord Drakkon's interference.

     Saba 
  • Eye Beams: Shoots reds ones, powerful enough to burn through metal.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: His attempt to kill Drakkon to prevent him from causing problems in the main timeline ends up freeing the villain, which leads to Saba's death and the entirety of Shattered Grid taking place.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: He was designed to be a partner for the White Ranger in Drakkon's reality. When Jason was killed in the middle of the process and Drakkon stole the powers for himself, Saba would have also fallen to Drakkon. In one of his final acts, Zordon prevented this by sending the sword into hiding. Saba went into stasis until Billy and Tommy from the main timeline find him, the goodness within the two of them reawakening him.
  • Talking Weapon: A sentient saber.
  • Teleporters and Transporters: One of his abilities. Even after he is killed, his body can still be used to create portals.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: He inadvertently begins the events of Shattered Grid. Out of a desire to protect the Rangers, he teleports to Drakkon's prison to kill the villain. However, he miscalculates, instead destroying Drakkon's chains and freeing him. Drakkon rips Saba's head from his body, then uses Saba's corpse to steal back his morpher and teleport himself to Ninjor to have it repaired.
  • Weapon of Choice: His body becomes this for Lord Drakkon after he's killed.

     Time Force Pink Ranger 

Jennifer “Jen” Scotts

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/efa4e6de_989b_41b9_8f22_79cd7b0b438c.jpeg

A Power Ranger from the future who has come to present day Angel Grove to stop a crisis involving Lord Drakkon.

  • Action Girl: A given for any female Ranger.
  • Bad Future: More like no future at all. Lord Drakkon's messing with the Morphin Grid has caused a Time Crash, and all of reality itself is being affected.
  • Big Damn Hero: Zigzagged. She arrives in a massive burst of energy, Chrono Blaster blazing, to help Kimberly fight off Lord Drakkon, but she's too late to save Tommy's life.
  • Cosmic Plaything: Combined with Unwitting Instigator of Doom and a little bit of Irony. She has now witnessed three deaths of a Pink Ranger's boyfriend. Alex back in the Time Force premiere, Wes at the beginning of Issue #25 and she arrived just in time to see Tommy die in Kim's arms.
  • Set Right What Once Went Wrong: She's come to Angel Grove to prevent Lord Drakkon's plan of destruction. Based on her reaction when she sees Tommy Oliver's death, that mission is already off to a rocky start.
  • Sole Survivor: In the opening pages of Issue #25, she's powerless to watch as three of her fellow Time Force Rangers fall into a fracture in space and time, and immediately after that, she loses her Red Ranger when their Megazord explodes with him inside it!
    • Issue 29 reveals that Eric is still alive, possibly due to remaining in his own time period while the rest of the team had been investigating the anomaly at the beginning of the event.
  • Time Police: A given since she's part of a group called Time Force.

     Red Samurai Ranger II 

Lauren Shiba

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/d72c0a07_767e_4144_aa62_ddd30dc7026e.jpeg
Leader of the Samurai Rangers
  • Adaptational Expansion: In Power Rangers Samurai, Lauren is an 11th-Hour Ranger who arrived in the last few episodes to replace Jayden and is quickly re-replaced by Jayden for the final battle, here she's The Leader again while her brother is off investigating the reappearance of the Nighlok.
  • Big Sister Mentor: Offers some words of wisdom to Jason.
  • Commonality Connection: She finds a kindred spirit in Jason, as they're both Red Rangers all too familiar with The Chains Of Command and losing people they care about.
  • Lady of War: Descended from ancient Japanese samurai warriors and has trained her entire life to defeat the Nighlok.
  • Magic Knight: Skilled with swords and symbol magic.
  • Playing with Fire: Her magical specialty.
  • Same Character, but Different: Downplayed and Justified because Lauren got very little screen time in her series, and this is several years after the events of Samurai. There, she was portrayed as a reserved Lady of War who had trouble integrating into the team. Years later, she's fully integrated into the group and shows a more playful side, such as her excitement to go for a ride in the Tyrannosaurus Zord.
  • Sole Survivor: She is the only one to escape Drakkon's attack on the Shiba House, aside from her brother and Mentor Ji who were away at the time.

     Doctor K 

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fe2c5053_9a8f_4a76_8be3_19f3c6874356.jpeg
some caption text

Teen Genius and Mentor to the RPM Rangers of Corinth

  • The Atoner: Just like in the show she's trying her best to make up for her creation of Venjix.
  • The Smart Girl: Possibly even tops Billy. Not only is she a Teen Genius, but she figures out how to counteract Drakkons depowering cannons.
  • Your Approval Fills Me with Shame: When Drakkon confronts her on her birthday to tell her how much he admires her for her creation of Venjix (the Big Bad of Power Rangers RPM who killed over 99% of humanity) she is brought to tears and destroys him. Too bad it was just a remote robot doppelganger.

     The Emissaries 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/4ea4d6d2_0804_40e3_b1c7_b18460d24d1c.jpeg
some caption text
Three mysterious entities that represent the morphing grid.

  • Big Good: The Blue Emissary is this to the Omega Rangers

  • The Gods Must Be Lazy: They refuse to help Zordon with the rising threat of Drakkon when he requests their aid. They come to regret it!
  • Primary-Color Champion: They have no set form but their respective color which is red, blue, and yellow, the most prominent three colors used in Power Rangers series, with the one exception in the case of Yellow not being in Dino Charge. Otherwise they shift between different forms of Rangers of their color.

     Lady Fienna 

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/1d8ca4f6_1228_4ee2_bb10_c470a1326a28.jpeg
Rita Repulsa's mother and a friend of Zordon's from long ago.
  • Call-Forward: Her appearance looks a lot like Rita's Mystic Mother persona and may have been a deliberate choice on Rita's part in the wake of her purification at the end of In Space.
  • Memento MacGuffin: The Dragon Shield once belonged to her.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: Her soul is absorbed into the Green Power Coin in the conclusion of Forever Rangers.

     Alpha 1 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/alpha_1.jpeg
The very first Alpha model robot. Is introduced when Jason and Trini get teleported off-world and is discovered to be the one who was covering up their disappearance at school and the Juice Bar.

  • Psycho Prototype: Not at first. But he goes mad after years of being adrift in space and seeing the Universe in peril because of the restraints of Zordon's rules.

     Remi

Ellarian's Only Friend and ally before Promethea enters the Void.

  • 11th-Hour Ranger: More like 13th! She becomes the Orange Solar Ranger once the final battle is done and the Preator has been defeated.


1969 Ranger Team

     Team as a whole 

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/go_go_groovy_rangers.jpg
in 1969 morphed and unmorphed

  • Canon Foreigner: None of them have counterparts that are even mentioned in the show.
  • Ragtag Bunch of Misfits /Teeth-Clenched Teamwork / We ARE Struggling Together: A member of the American Space Program, a Veteran serving in Vietnam, a college activist, a British singer, and a member of the KGB. In 1969! Zordon REALLY should have done some modern research before just throwing these five together because this goes as well as you might expect it to. Daniel, a member of the counter culture movement clashes with war veteran Terona while British Jamie immediately argues with Nikolai. This isn't helped by the fact that they're supposed to take on a psychotic alien who ends up killing three of them.
  • Remember the New Guy?: Are a team of Power Rangers put together in 1969 before the classic team from the series was even born.

     Red Ranger 

Grace Sterling

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mmpr_1969_rg_graceb.jpg
Grace in present day

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/young_grace_69.png
Grace in 1969

  • Badass Normal: She's in her 60s, but that doesn't stop her from piloting a Humongous Mecha to help the current team of Rangers.
  • Big Good: Looks to be this for the Beyond The Grid story.
  • Broken Pedestal: Trini is seen reading her autobiography, Billy was looking for an internship at her company, and all the Rangers are amazed to learn that she's a former Power Ranger herself. However, the entire team and Jason in particular come to question her methods when she starts acting a little too proactive in their fight against Finster's monsters, and especially after the Rangers learn that she's been keeping Lord Drakkon captive in Promethea without telling them.
  • Cool Old Lady: She was Power Ranger in her twenties, and forty-odd years later, she runs a corporation specializing in research leaps and bound she ahead of the status quo, pilots a giant robot, and tries to impart some wisdom onto the current team.
  • Jumped at the Call: The only member of the 1969 Rangers to whole-heartedly agree. Ever since she was young, she'd dreamed of going to the moon, and she's thrilled when the opportunity arises to do just that. However, it's quickly deconstructed when she realizes how unprepared she actually is to do such a thing, especially in such a high-stakes situation.
  • The Leader: Of the 1969 Power Rangers and later the founder of Promethea.
  • My Greatest Failure: Decades later, she still blames herself for what happened to Jamie, Daniel, and Nikolai, and has since dedicated herself and her company to changing the world for the better, though the Rangers begin to question if she's taking it too far.
  • Older and Wiser: Compared to when she was in her twenties. She acts as a sort of mentor to Jason, knowing first hand how difficult being the Red Ranger can be.
  • Rookie Red Ranger: Everyone In the 1969 team is new to this, having minutes to prepare before they are sent to stop Psycho Green. It's especially pointed with Grace, because while she had extensive knowledge of the Moon, she has no idea how to actually lead a team, let alone one as mismatched as the Rangers of 1969.
  • Villains Act, Heroes React: Explored through her. She has good intentions and is very proactive in her goal to make the world a better place, but as Zordon points out, Ranger powers are designed to protect and defend the world as it is, not to change it. The Rangers grow suspicious of her when they feel she may be going too far, such as when she starts policing a city without official consent to try and find a monster, or when they learn that she has Drakkon.
  • Wealthy Philanthropist: The CEO of the multi-billion dollar Promethea organization, much of her work focuses on improving the world to honor the memory of her fallen teammates.

     Yellow Ranger 

Terona Washington

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/terona_washington_1969_rangers.jpg
in 1969
  • Black Dude Dies First: Averted, he's one of the only two survivors of the Moon battle with Psycho Green along with Grace.
  • Token Minority: The only non-white member of the team.
  • The Vietnam Vet: He fought in Vietnam, and the things he saw there make him harsh towards Daniel for his civilian perspective on the war and what happened there.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: While Grace shows up in the present, Terona is no where to be seen and it is not mentioned what happened after he left the Command Center. It's later revealed he's been working with Grace and is aboard the Promethea when it gets lost in time and space during the final battle with Drakkon.

     Blue Ranger 

Nikolai Chukarin

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nikolai_chukarin_1969_rangers.jpg
  • Due to the Dead: Despite butting heads with the other Rangers, he commends Jamie and Daniel as having "died bravely" to protect the world, something he does in return.
  • Famous Last Words: "We will save the Earth today Grace, make sure it's worth saving." His words leave such an impact on Grace that she's become the head of a philanthropic tech company when she reappears in the present.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: He dives into the mouth of Psycho Green's monster form with a gun stolen from the still imprisoned Rita's castle to take out Psycho Green.
  • Knight In Sour Armor: He's a bitter person and handles the deaths of his teammates the best as "it happens." That said, he's willing to work with people who are technically his enemies to protect the entire world and his last words are a request for Grace to make the world a better place.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: As a Russian in the 60s he's not exactly on the best terms with the rest of the Rangers who are American and British. He's still willing to lay down his life for the cause however.

     Pink Ranger 

Daniel O'Halloran

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/daniel_ohalloran_1969_rangers.jpg
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: He tried to get revenge on Psycho Green by rushing him solo, but all that accomplished was the Psycho Ranger shattering his visor with an open palm strike and leaving him to suffocate to death. The others try to save him but Green doesn't give them the chance.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Justified as he wasn't thinking straight after Jamie died, but he rushed Psycho Green to get revenge despite his Power Weapon being the Power Bow.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: And he's not too happy about it.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Is killed on the moon by Psycho Green in his first appearance.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: He's not too happy to work with Terona due to the Yellow Ranger being The Vietnam Vet while Daniel is a war protester.

     Black Ranger 

Jamie Gilmore

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jamie_gilmore_1969_rangers.jpg
  • British Rockstar: She was a member of a British band called "The Familiars"
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Psycho Green kills her by smashing her beneath an enormous boulder as she begs for him to spare her.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Is killed on the Moon by Psycho Green in her first appearance.

Beyond the Grid team

    Team as a whole 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/159efbfd_d6ac_40b0_873d_bd728a1001a5.jpeg
As Solar Rangers 

  • 11th-Hour Superpower: In the penultimate chapter of Beyond the Grid, Ellarien breaks the Solarix in pieces in order to share its power with the other Rangers adding to their existing powers and turning them into Solar Rangers.
  • Limited Wardrobe: Justified because their original mission was to rescue the captured Rangers and then get back to Earth. So when they ended up in The Void, all they had were the clothes on their backs and whatever supplies were on the Promethea.
  • Perpetual Frowner: Initially due to the dire circumstances they're in, there's not much for them to smile about but changes when Ellarien joins them.
  • Ragtag Bunch of Misfits: They're comprised of six members from six different teams, including one from a Bad Future and another who wasn't brought over for his seasons adaptation.

    Ranger Slayer 
For her entry, see "Villains"

     Zeo Ranger II 

Tanya Sloan

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/beyond_the_grid.jpg

  • The Heart: She is the one to remind the group that as Power Rangers, it's their duty to help people when they're reluctant to answer a distress beacon. She also suggests they try nonviolent methods to defuse situations, such as trying to talk the Praetor into not attacking the Promethea or trying to convince his soldiers into standing down.
  • Ship Tease: This seems to be happening with her and Mike. They get together by issue #36.

  • Big Brother Instinct: Deconstructed as his top priority is always returning to Karone's side, leaving him distracted from the bigger picture. His teammates call him out on this in Issue #37.
  • Brother-Sister Team: With Karone in the “Beyond the Grid” Arc and more prominently in “The Psycho Path” Graphic Novel.
  • Human Alien: Originally came from KO-35.

    Magna Defender 

Mike Corbett

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/beyond_the_grid_9.jpg
  • Badass Cape: He has one as part of his normal Ranger suit which carries over to his new Solar Ranger form.
  • Birds of a Feather: In issue #30, when everyone is preparing for the final battle, just about every other Ranger is binding cross-team with their helmets off. Everyone except for the Phantom Ranger and the Manga Defender, who asks the former if he's a "helmet on kind of guy", finding that cool about him. This is a shout-out to the fact that these are two of the most mysterious rangers in the history of the series.
  • Death Seeker: He sees himself as expendable and takes risks so the rest of the team doesn't have to, citing the fact he has already died once.
  • Ship Tease: With Tanya but he believes that the feelings aren't returned, he’s wrong and they're together by issue #36.
  • Survivor's Guilt: Has this in spades and it gets used against him in Issue #37 by the Praetor, who promises that when he comes for the group he will kill everyone but Mike so he will be forced to live with being the Sole Survivor again.

    Dark Ranger 

Heckyl

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/heckyl_3.jpg
Unmorphed and Morphed

  • A Day in the Limelight: Issue #35 focuses on him and how he became the Dark Ranger.
  • Adaptational Heroism: Not Heckyl himself, but his Dark Ranger suit, which is the evil-only Deathryuger suit, rather the good version, Kyoryu Navynote , that was introduced in Kyoryuger's post-series special.
    • Composite Character: This makes Heckyl a counterpart to both Ferocious Knight D (making Badussa a Decomposite Character) and Dai-kun, the alignment of the latter, but with the design and weapon of the former.
    • Mythology Gag: Heckyl is clearly based on Enter, primary villain of Tokumei Sentai Go Busters and that was promised as compensation for it being (initially) skipped. There, Enter gained his own Ranger-like form called Dark Buster during the endgame. Here, Heckyl finally follows that part of the inspiration, though by this time, he's been a good guy.
  • Affectionate Nickname: "Dimples" because he has them when he smiles.
  • Apologetic Attacker: Tells Zenowing he's sorry as he shoves his mentor into a room and fries the doorknob, locking him inside.
  • The Atoner: It's unclear how much time has passed for him after being given a second chance, but he still feels guilty about the things he did when he was evil. This is compounded with the fact that when he first used the Dark Energem to become a Ranger and defeat Lord Arcanon, it nearly led to him being corrupted again only for Zenowing to intervene and sacrifice himself to save Heckyl.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: Wears a suit that is color of his Keeper robes with gold accents, gifted to him by new friends he made on Sentai 6.
  • Birds of a Feather: With Ranger Slayer because they're both reformed villains.
  • Bizarre Alien Senses: He's able to see in ultraviolet light, apparently it's great a parties.
  • Cool Down Hug: On the receiving end from Zenowing when the Dark Energem started corrupting his Ranger form.
  • God-Created Canon Foreigner: The Ranger form existed in Kyoryuger as a movie exclusive character but was not brought over for Dino Charge.
  • Hidden Depths: He's apparently very good with technology, being able to create a smaller but functionally identical copy of Zenowing's morpher without him knowing.
  • Human Alien: Originally came from Sentai 6.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With everyone due to the fact he's millions of years old, but more so with Cam who tries and occasionally succeeds in making him smile. This is strengthened further in #35 after Heckyl reveals his backstory to Cam and Kim, prompting Kim to come up with a drink sharing ritual to cement their bond.
  • Interspecies Friendship: On Sentai 6 he befriended a harpy looking woman named Illia and a male centaur with small antlers named Rydan.
  • Irony: His original outfit was blue, but now that he's a Ranger (and for the purposes of the team seen as a Blue) he's wearing red which goes against the tradition of Rangers wearing their colors out of suit.
  • Mundane Utility: He used his own electricity to help build his morpher.
  • Name's the Same: Shares their title with a group of evil Rangers Lord Zedd created to combat the original MMPR team.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: His paranoia about Lord Arcanon coming to Sentai 6, despite the Dark Energem being better hidden, led to his decision to create a morpher to protect it and his planet. It turns out that this time around Arcanon was drawn to the planet because of the morpher Heckyl made. If he had listened to Zenowing's advice he wouldn't have run the risk of being corrupted by the Dark Energem again and forced Zenowing to sacrifice himself to save him.
  • Old Shame: In-Universe. His time as a villain is an obvious sore spot for him, to the point that he hadn't told anyone else the entirety of his past or how he became a Ranger until Issue #35 where he reveals it to Cam and Kim, with the rest of the team being informed offscreen by Issue #37.
  • Tragic Keepsake: His current morpher originally belonged to Zenowing, who passed it onto Heckyl when he died.
  • The Shadow Knows: In his backstory his shadow would occasionally take on the shape of Snide, showing that Heckyl was haunted by his darker self.
  • You Can't Go Home Again: After his actions led to Zenowing's death and afraid that he would bring about his planet's destruction again, Heckyl decides not to return to Sentai 6.

    Solar Ranger 

Ellarien

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/solar_ranger.jpg

  • Facial Markings: Has a two large yellow marks on the left side of her face: one along her jaw, the other starting at her hairline and goes down to her cheek.
  • No Honor Among Thieves: Doesn't blame her friends for selling her out to the Crimson Raiders, either for a reward or just to live, knowing how difficult it is to survive in their universe.
  • Original Generation: Has no Super Sentai counterpart, but seems to have been inspired by Uchu Sentai Kyuranger.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Their outfit is various shades of purple and is patterned to look like a galaxy.
  • The Sixth Ranger: Well Seventh but after her first confrontation with the team, she is quickly set up to be this after revealing that she's trying to keep a powerful artifact out of the hands of a much larger threat. It turns out to be the case with this suit in general, being the 7th of the Solar Rangers that arrived alongside the Praetor.
  • Street Urchin: Was one growing up and was part of a small group that worked together to survive.
  • The Unchosen One: Believes the only reason the Solarix came into her possession is because there was no one else to carry it.

  • Brother-Sister Team: With Andros in The Beyond the Grid Arc and more prominently in “The Psycho Path” Graphic Novel
  • Human Alien: Originally came from KO-35.
  • Out of Focus: Though she's one of the few Rangers still capable of morphing on board the Promethea, she's left out of any major events during Beyond the Grid except the final battle against the Praetor where everyone else was participating.

     Other Rangers on Promethea 

As a Whole

  • Brought Down to Normal: They were all without their Morphers when the Promethea was lost in time and space because they had just been rescued from Drakkon's prison.
  • The Resenter: In Issue #36, Karone tells Cam that a lot of the refugees from Drakkon's prison resent his team because they still have powers and thus can do the most to help those in the Void.

  • Death by Origin Story: He sacrifices himself by using his magic to save Heckyl from being corrupted by the Dark Energem again, which is why he did not take part in Shattered Grid.
  • The Mentor: Acted as this towards Heckyl after they arrived on Sentai 6, teaching him how to hide the Dark Energem but Zenowing also tried to get Heckyl to make the most of his second chance and to just enjoy life.

Ace (Red), Star (Pink), Gent (Black), Brute (Blue), Pyre (Yellow) and Trek (Green)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/099da5e3_473b_43e3_b96d_286c832b0f1b.jpeg
the team

A team of Rangers from Xyberia from long before the events of MMPR. They were all betrayed and killed by Trek, who joined Dark Specter and became Psycho Green.

  • Ascended Extra: And How! SuperSonic was introduced in a scene from Super Megaforce that adapted a scene from Gokaiger in which the Gokai Yellow changed into the Yellow Ranger from Chikyuu Sentai Fiveman, which had not been adapted into a Power Rangers series. Here the Rangers all get names and a back story.
  • Love Triangle: Star used to date Trek but they broke up and she's now dating Ace.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: All but one are killed off in the short story that they are introduced in.

     Loriyan 

Green Ranger

A thief who worked for Rita Repulsa over ten thousand years ago and Tommy Oliver's predecessor as wielder of the Green Dragon Power Coin which apparently didn’t last long.

  • Posthumous Character: Is only shown in a flashback and has been dead for over ten thousand years otherwise.

     Rita Repulsa 

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/c281fb20_0776_48db_9a2f_d9a3acbf61b6.jpeg
  • Adaptational Badass: Rita is a lot more cunning here than she was in the show, being an expert at emotional manipulation and long-term planning that keeps taking the Rangers by surprise. We also get to actually see her conquering multiple planets via flashbacks and in modern day we get to see her hold her own against a group of warriors and the various traps she had set up to hide the Green Power Coin. Writer Ryan Parrott stayed that what differentiates her from her tv show counter part is that she learns a great deal from her defeats making her a much more formidable opponent for the rangers each time they meet.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Was disgusted at the parents of Squatt who, when he was a baby, offered him up as tribute to her when she conquered their planet.
  • Parental Substitute: It's revealed that she's this to Squatt. 10,000 years ago during her planetary conquering days, an infant Squatt's parents offered him up to her in exchange for their lives. Even she was disgusted by this to the point that she executes the parents and raises the baby as one of her soldiers.
    • She even shows shades of this to Lord Drakkon, primarily during his days of confusion following the spell from the Sword of Darkness being broken.

     Goldar 

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/8017be72_e0c4_4e26_9662_3b1d819f345f.jpeg
some caption text

  • The Dragon: In the main universe. Also in the World of the Coinless until Drakkon usurps that role from him.
  • The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: Aids the rangers escaping Alpha One trap due to his belief that the only one to defeat them should be Rita forces, Rita did not take the news well as she doesn't care who defeated the Rangers.
  • Undying Loyalty: In stark contrast to his TV counterpart who would betray his boss the instant a stronger villain came along, this Goldar is fiercely loyal to Rita.
  • Villainous Friendship: With Scorpina. The two even enjoy an unsanctioned day off from work together on Earth.

     Finster 

     Lord Drakkon 

Tommy Oliver

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/black_dragon_true_form.jpg
Morphed

  • A God Am I: He wants to be a god. In Shattered Grid #1, he achieves that goal.
  • Ax-Crazy: In case trying to take over the world wasn't a hint as is, hunting down and murdering alternate versions of yourself is not the move of a sane person. Dr. K even labels him a psychopath during their conversation. Drakkon frequently enjoys attacking and killing folk, and when planning to kill Brody states it's the part he "enjoys most".
  • Badass Cape: Evo III!Drakkon has a pretty sweet cape as a part of his suit. And it's fitting for his role as The Cape in his ideal world, even if he's anything but that.
  • Big Bad: Of the alternate world and Shattered Grid arcs.
  • Bling of War: Drakkon's Evo III form. It's black, graphite and gold with red trim. Fitting for a Ranger whose morphing call is "Black Dragon".
  • Curious Qualms of Conscience: He tells Zeo!Tommy he didn't attack the other Zeo Rangers, even though he'd been planning to, in a way that suggests he doesn't know why not.
  • Dark Is Evil: The dude's morphing call is "Black Dragon", and he's pretty damn evil. Taken to its logic conclusion in Shattered Grid where he gets a mostly black Ranger form.
  • Evil Counterpart: An alternate version of Tommy Oliver who rejected the Rangers and stayed with Rita after he was freed from her spell.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones:
    • In Issue #26, it's revealed that he is quite close with his universe's Finster (known as Finster 5) possibly viewing him as a Parental Substitute. This doesn't stop him from killing the cyborg in Issue #30 when he attempts to prevent Drakkon from tapping into morphers from power sets he's already connected to.
    • In the 2017 annual, Rita also seems to be someone else Drakkon is close with. Similar to Finster 5, she might be a Parental Substitute as well. Subverted in this instance, since he ultimately killed her.
    • Another candidate seems to be Coinless!Kim/Ranger Slayer. He tried to convince her into joining him, saying that they're very similar and that in another world, the two of them could be something more.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good:
    • He's utterly baffled by the idea of the Zeo Rangers being True Companions, and especially their love for Tommy, refusing to see anything good or laudable about him.
    • He seems to think Dr. K unintentionally unleashing Venjix, nearly leading to the annihilation of mankind is a good thing.
    • Ultimately, this leads to his defeat. His rejection of the Rangers' friendship is what causes him to be weaker compared to other Tommys.
  • Evil Wears Black: Throughout Shattered Grid, his Ranger outfit starts getting black parts to it, starting with black pants thanks to the Samurai Ranger powers, then black accents on the Zeo-based outfit. By the end of the event, Drakkon's suit is almost entirely black, with gold armor and red trim on it.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Drakkon's fatal flaw and main motivation: looking into the Green Chaos Crystal, he saw all the other Tommy Olivers who led much happier lives than he did.
  • Hate Sink: Every one of his actions seem to fall into one of two categories: further pissing off the people who already hate him or killing the few people that actually like him. His actions include killing the most beloved character of the franchise, who is a better version of himself at least TWICE, brainwashing one of the other most beloved member of the franchise into being his best killer (and possibly into a romantic relationship), capturing or killing many other characters across the Power Rangers franchise, and then destroying all of reality and rewriting it into a word where he's the opposite of this trope. Even then, people begin to catch on that something isn't right. What makes this all worse is that this isn't a Tommy who never broke free of Rita's brainwashing, this is a Tommy who broke free and then CHOSE of his own free will to become a sadistic, murderous, treacherous, self serving despot.
  • Hannibal Lecture: Tries to give this to Billy when the latter discovers he's being held prisoner by Promethea. It doesn't work.
  • Hero Killer: Jason Scott, Billy Cranston, Ninjor, Zordon, and Alpha 5 of his universe and main universe Tommy Oliver as well as Zeo Tommy, along with Dr. Oliver off screen, are just a few on his long list of kills.
  • High Collar of Doom: His Samurai-influenced outfit has a popped collar. It disappears with the next power upgrade.
  • Humans Are the Real Monsters: He's one of two willfully evil human beings in the franchise (the other being Master Org) whereas all others were Brainwashed and Crazy humans, robotic psychopaths, malevolent aliens, or demons. Out of all of these, it's him who manages to rank up the highest kill count by wiping out the multiverse to replace it with something more to his liking. Thankfully this is undone, but still.
  • I Just Want to Be Loved: Drakkon secretly harbors a desire to have the life that all the other Tommy Olivers had, with the love, adoration, praise, and idolization that comes with it.
  • It Is Pronounced Tropay: Going by the spelling you would assume that it's said "Drake-on" but both Kyle Higgens and Jason David Frank have said that it's pronounced "Drac-en".
  • Kick the Dog: Slowly crushes Alpha-6's head as an example to the In Space Rangers.
  • Light Is Not Good: His original outfit is predominantly white, with some green and gold in the mix, and he's a crazed maniac with an army behind him. With further upgrades, the suit gets more black added on to it until all traces of green and white are gone.
  • Mega Manning / All Your Powers Combined: His mission in Shattered Grid. He seems to be collecting powers individuals from the Power Ranger teams he defeats in order to add to his own Power set. He gets Samurai powers in Issue #26 and by the end of the 2018 annual he at the very least has added Ninja Steel and Zeo to his collection. His end goal with this is to use all the powers he's acquired to enter the heart of the Morphin Grid itself.
  • Other Me Annoys Me: To a seemingly extreme degree. During Shattered Grid he goes after other versions of himself, killing both the main universe Tommy of the series as well as his Zeo counterpart, with his Dino Thunder self meeting a similar fate Off Screen.
  • Never My Fault: According to his creator Kyle Higgins, this trope is the driving force behind his actions. Higgins states that early in his time as a Ranger, the Chaos Crystal showed him a vast number of alternate worlds and that every single other Tommy Oliver was a good person as opposed to the selfish one he is and was also loved and adored as opposed to how he is worshiped out of fear. Higgins says Drakkon looked at these versions that were so different from him and said "I'm not the one who's wrong, it's everyone else (referring to the other versions of himself)! There's nothing wrong with me, I'm not the problem, they are!" This drove him to not only kill every version of himself that he could get his hands on, but also to rewrite reality where everyone adored him the way they did the other Tommy's without doing all that pesky personal growth or change.
  • Pet the Dog:
    • During Shattered Grid, Drakkon takes Zeo!Tommy's place during a celebration of Jason (thanks to a holographic disguise) and doesn't attack any of the Rangers to take their powers by force, instead sneaking Adam's Zeonizer away. He also has a heart to heart with Jason on top of the Power Chamber.
    • In a twisted sort of way: him having all the other Rangers who he fought against in his ideal world. Sure, they were there to idolize him, but he could've easily just let them die.
  • Redemption Rejection: Tommy offers to help Drakkon just before his team departs but he rejects the offer.
  • Underestimating Badassery: He assumed the other Rangers would be easy pickings. Some of them, such as the S.P.D. B-Squad, disabuse him of this one, and send him running.
  • We Can Rule Together: He asks Dr. K to join his forces, then makes it clear he wasn't asking. Having stomped on her traumas while he was trying to do so, she responds by trying to kill him.

unmorphed

  • The Atoner: After being freed from her brainwashing, she's helped against Drakkon's attack on the multiverse and lead the rescue team to save all the Rangers that had been captured and is now the leader of her own team of mismatched Rangers.
  • Birds of a Feather: With Heckyl because they're both reformed villains.
  • Boyish Short Hair: Unlike her counterpart, she keeps her hair very short possibly because long hair is harder to take care of in the world she comes from.
  • The Dragon: Is this to Lord Drakkon at the beginning of the Shattered Grid Arc, until the brainwashing on her is broken and she turns against him.
  • Evil Counterpart: She's the Kimberly from Drakkon's world. Though she's only evil due to being Brainwashed and Crazy.
  • Future Badass: While the main timeline's Kimberly is an adapt fighter and archer, Ranger Slayer!Kim is able to take on the core five with little to no trouble.
    • Kim stormed Drakkon's lair that was full of Ranger Sentries and made it to his throne room. By herself. Without her powers.
  • Heel–Face Turn: After being freed from Drakkon's mind control.
  • It's Personal: This Kim tried to assassinate Drakkon after Matt was killed in a raid.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: She nearly has a nervous breakdown upon being freed of the mind control.
  • Spanner in the Works: After contacting her when her brainwashing has been broken, Drakkon worries that she might be able to disrupt his plans.
    • Ultimately, she ends up being exactly this. She was able to save the main Tommy's life by allowing his soul to be kept in another dimension. Thanks to this, Tommy is able to come back and defeat Drakkon.
  • The Leader: Of the Beyond the Grid team, more than likely due to her years of experience.
  • The Mentor: To Ellarien, since the young girl has no idea what her powers are truly capable of.
  • Trapped in the Past: She had intended to go to the present of the main world to rescue Drakkon, but an anomaly led to her getting sent too far back into the past instead, before the Rangers ever met Drakkon and before Tommy became a Ranger.
  • Walking Spoiler: On two levels; that she's the Kimberly of Drakkon's world, and that she's Brainwashed and Crazy
  • When She Smiles: After being broken free of Drakkon's mind control, when the younger Rangers take her to Ernie's Juice Bar, she has a genuine smile on her face and it's absolutely adorable.

  • The Dreaded: Rita and her minions are afraid of him, during the time of his rule at the moon palace, Baboo suggests they try to flee while Squatt thinks he would give them a Fate Worse than Death for all their failures.
  • Pyrrhic Victory: Believe in this philosophy when it comes to creating monsters
    Lord Zedd: If you take something your enemy loves, corrupt it, defile it, and turn it against them... You win even when you lose.
    • He also sees his Dark Ranger plan blowing up as part of this because he was able to permanently strip Tommy of his Green Ranger Powers leaving the rangers without their strongest fighter.
  • Superior Successor: Is out to prove that he's this to Rita.
  • Never Recycle Your Schemes: In the Mighty Morphin era, after another monster is defeated, he decides not to send another monster and expect different results, but instead hiring a bounty hunter to take them down.

  • Back from the Dead: Due to as of yet revealed circumstances in The Psycho Path graphic novel.

    Psycho Green 

Trek (formerly Super Sonic Green)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/psycho_green_ranger.jpg

  • Adaptational Badass: In Power Rangers in Space, the Psycho's were strong and quite a challenge for the Rangers but they would have more trouble when facing more than one ranger. This one however was challenge for the whole team! He was able to kill two members and it took a Heroic Sacrifice from a third to take him out for good. Though this is probably more due to fact that these rangers had just become a team less than an hour prior to this battle and were completely inexperienced.
  • Ax-Crazy: Slaughters two of the Rangers in cold blood, when Jamie begs for her life he shows that he doesn't understand what she could be begging for before crushing her with a rock. He also murdered his entire Ranger team before willingly joining Dark Specter.
  • Deal with the Devil: Was originally a member of the Supersonic Rangers, but stabbed them in the back and killed them in order to gain Dark Specter's favor and become Psycho Green.
  • Evil Counterpart: Trek is arguably one to Ryan Mitchell, being an American-exclusive Sixth Ranger on a team whose Sentai counterpart didn't have a sixth; however, whereas Ryan Mitchell became good of his own will, Trek joined Dark Specter of his own will. Ironically, both corresponding Sentai teams were families with each having a different career in the same field (education in the case of Fiveman, search and rescue in the case of Go Go V).
  • Fallen Hero: The Year Two Deluxe Edition reveals his origins: he was a regular Power Ranger by the name of Trek and hailed from the planet Xybria. He turned on his team after being benched too many times by his leader, luring them into a trap and killing them. After reporting his deeds to Dark Specter, he was rewarded by being transformed into Psycho Green.
  • One-Winged Angel: Much like the Psychos from In Space, he has a secondary Monster form. It turns out he was originally a Human Alien and his Psycho form is this trope granted by Dark Specter.
  • Original Generation: Threefold. He is this to the Psycho Rangers, and thus, to the Nejirangers, who had no Sixth Ranger (that wasn't a ruse by heroes, anyway), but also to Chikyuu Sentai Fiveman, since unlike their comic-only adaptation, the Supersonic Rangers, there was no Five Green.
  • Psycho Rangers: More in the literal sense in that he's a member of the Trope Namers who was created for the book.
  • The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: Is the only Psycho who does not have a color used by the Space Rangers (that we know of).

  • Bad Boss: Senslessly kills several of his own men just to try and kill Tanya.
  • Big Bad: Of the Beyond the Grid arc.
  • Break Them by Talking: In Issue #34, he attempts to disrupt the Ranger's efforts at fighting back by somehow knowing about their flaws and insecurities and exploiting them to ruin their concentration. He's more successful in Issue #37, where after preying on Mike's fear of being the Sole Survivor again, he convinces the Ranger to steal the Solarix and to hand it over to him when he arrives in exchange for sparing the lives of him and his friends.
  • Canon Foreigner: He was created to act as the main antagonist for the Beyond the Grid arc and so has no direct counterpart from either Power Rangers or Super Sentai.
  • Fallen Hero: Issue #38 reveals that he's a Morphin' Master.
  • Go Mad from the Revelation: It's implied that he peered into the secrets of the universe and decided to destroy it when he realized that it doesn't fall in line with his Black and White Morality.
  • Not-So-Well-Intentioned Extremist: When his kind cut the Void off from the Morphin Grid, he and his Rangers waited until one day it would be safe to rejoin. As time went on, he realized this would never happen and that the universe was slowly dying from the separation so he decided to speed up the process and started killing everyone, believing it would be a mercy.

Farkas Bulkmier

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bc100981_39e6_4f54_8a4a_ae2d37351b89.jpeg

  • Hidden Depths: In the Coinless world, Bulk reveals to Kimberly that he was secretly a big History buff and it was the only class he didn't sleep through during school. It's safe to say that this trait most likely carries over to the main universe Bulk.
  • Odd Friendship: With Coinless Kim before she is brainwashed by Drakkon into the Ranger Slayer. They were actually partners in the Coinless and when the spell on her is broken she even hugs main universe Bulk, indicating that she had some pretty pleasant memories of her Bulk despite the terrible ordeal they were in.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Main universe Bulk briefly becomes a Purple Ranger with the empowered spare change. He even gets a Zord.
  • Took a Level in Badass: As stated before, he becomes Kimberly's partner in the Coinless world. He even survives years after she is captured. Given the kind of person Bulk becomes in the TV series, this isn't really a surprise.

  • Took a Level in Badass: Not only is he a member of the Coinless in that world, he's also The Mole for the Coinless in Drakkon's forces, hiding his true intentions and working his way up the ladder into a position as a Red Sentry and helping the resistance fighters numerous times on panel and who knows how many times off panel. Unfortunately he gets caught following a rescue mission and Drakkon snaps his neck for his betrayal.
  • We Used to Be Friends: It's revealed that he and Billy were good friends when they were younger. It's implied that Skull resented Billy as he grew up to be a genius in school. It's also implied that Billy may on some level look down on Skull's delinquent status.

  • Canon Foreigner: Never appeared in the original show.
  • Death by Origin Story: For the Ranger Slayer in Drakkon's world. Seeing him die is what makes Kim recklessly try to kill Drakkon alone, ultimately leading to her brainwashing.
  • The Ghost: While he appears in the Go Go series, he's only mentioned in the main comic, simply implying something bad happened to him.
    • It's later revealed that he found out about his friends and girlfriend being the Power Rangers but when he confronted them about it, they were unable to answer him. Feeling betrayed, Matt vowed to never speak to any of them again unaware that they couldn't confirm his accusations due to one of Zordon's rules (never reveal your secret identity).
  • The Heart: It seems he was this before Kimberly took the role as he was friends with every member of the team even when Zach and Trini were not to crazy about Kimberly due to a Noodle Incident. It's implied that he's the only reason Kimberly became as good as friends with the group as she is.
  • Nice Guy: He's friendly and seems to be close with all of the Rangers on a very personal level.
  • Remember the New Guy?: Was never in the original series. He's introduced as a sixth member of the gang before they all became Rangers.

some caption text
  • All for Nothing: Tommy tells Kat at the beginning of the story that despite all they did in the early days, things aren't much better than when they began as Power Rangers. Kat tells him that he's wrong and that what they did mattered.
  • Badass Beard: Possibly to further comparisons to Old Man Logan, he's grown out his soul patch/goatee into a thick beard.
  • Character Development: Even though he was part of several Ranger teams over the years, he finally realizes that he doesn't have to do everything by himself.
  • Dented Iron: While still a skilled fighter, his age and the injuries he's accumulated over the years are starting to catch up to him. Not helping matters is having a morpher that's slowly breaking down.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: At the end of the story, he and Kat decide to take a trip around the world, confident that neither of them have to worry about its safety with their son and S.P.D. protecting it.
  • Happily Married: To his Second Love, Katherine Hillard.
  • Handicapped Badass: Eight years before this story takes place he suffered a serious back injury while fighting a monster, forcing him to obtain a cybernetic spine. He covers up the real source of the injury by claiming that he was in a car accident.
  • Mandatory Unretirement: Though he's left Ranger duties to the younger generation, when his son goes missing Tommy quickly sets out to track him down.
  • Papa Wolf: Comes out of retirement because his son J.J. goes missing.
  • Phlebotinum Breakdown: His Master Morpher suffered significant damage the last time he used it and now only has a few charges left, forcing Tommy to go through his powers in the reverse order he obtained them and losing his connection to those powers after they're used.
  • Reluctant Retiree: In his civilian life, budget cuts force him to retire from his career as a teacher.
  • Retired Badass: His Ranger days are behind him and he has left the protection of Earth to S.P.D.
  • Stronger with Age: Invoked via his Zeo Ranger powers which are stated to get stronger over time and at the point this story takes place, Tommy's had them for 20 years.

Morphed

     Kat Hillard 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kat___soul_of_the_dragon.jpg

The former Pink Ranger of three different varieties, Tommy's wife and J.J.'s mother.

  • Action Mom: A former Pink Ranger who can still kick ass, she comes in as part of the rescue team for J.J. with a rifle in the final battle.
  • Badass Teacher: Mentions taking her class in a field trip to Triforia.
  • Happily Married: To Tommy.

     Anara 

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/8f6c0e17_4567_496e_90d5_9cfa5477fe6f.jpeg
JJ's friend and colleague and Tommy's partner in finding J.J.
  • Alien Hair: Has purple hair.
  • Foil: To Tommy. While he is an older retired experienced father of her friend who during the story confronts how his legacy may have effected his son, she is a young newer hero who addresses how her father wanted her to live the life he never had. This allows her to help Tommy, saying that simply harping on it won't help and is a waste of time.
  • Rubber-Forehead Aliens: Appearance-wise she seems to be Aquitian but displays none of the issues the Aquitar Rangers faced (the need to constantly stay hydrated). Either a way for Aquitian's to better survive environments other than their home planet was invented or she's a different race entirely.

     “The Witch” 

Scorpina

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/f61a74f3_8e11_4408_bf66_0aa4dc2f14fa.jpeg

  • Bait-and-Switch: With the moniker and their supplying the gangs of New Tech City with magical crystals, you would think we're dealing with a Rita Replusa turned evil again but instead it's a character who hasn't been seen (in the TV continuity) since season 2 of MMPR.
  • Big Bad: Though she's working as an Acolyte for a Greater-Scope Villain, she presents the major threat for the story.
  • Tragic Villain: At one point she implies that she regrets not being in the Main dimension when the Zordon Wave hit the Universe, purifying many villains, feeling she missed her chance to be a better person.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: The story answers this question. Scorpina disappeared sometime after Rita and Zedd's wedding when she was punished by the former for seeking more power. She was sent to the Talos dimension where she became Lokar's prisoner until the Zordon wave wiped out all of his allies in the main dimension, granting her an opportunity to exchange her loyalty for freedom. However, when she returned it was decades later.

Former S.P.D. Blue Ranger and head of S.P.D.
  • All There in the Manual: A Christmas postcard was released as a promotion for Soul of the Dragon. It featured Sky in a new Red Ranger outfit that mirrors his position as the new Chief. Wordof God states that it's called the Deka Ranger, in a reference to S.P.D's counterpart. This suit has not appeared on any show or comic at the time of this release.
  • Da Chief: Of S.P.D.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Has acquired a scar from an undisclosed source since we last saw him.

  • Good Counterpart: Is unknowingly one to his Coinless counterpart Finster-5 who had a close relationship with Drakkon. After his purification he now seems to have a close friendship with the good Tommy Oliver to the point that his death deeply upsets his former enemy.
  • Heel–Face Turn: It's revealed that the Zordon wave from the end of Power Rangers In Space purified him just as it did Rita and Zedd.
