Current Team Members
Jason Lee Scott / Omega Fire Ranger
- 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 Commanding: 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.
- Determinator: Much like his TV show counterpart.
- Heroes Prefer Swords: Wields the Power Sword. & wields the Omega Katana as an Omega Ranger
- 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'".
- It Never Gets Any Easier: Post-Time Skip, Tommy asks this the Red Omega Ranger if being a leader ever gets easier, unaware of who he's actually talking to. He admits that no, it doesn't.
- 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
- 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.
- Sinister Scythe: Wields a chained Kusarigama as the black Omega Ranger.
- 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
- 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.
- Drill Sergeant Nasty: She's very hard with Rocky, Aisha and Adam, partially because she still miss Trini, Jason and Zack.
- 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.
- Stepford Smiler: Her recent move to Angel Grove, her parents' divorce, and her failed first relationship with Matt all take a toll on her.
- Valley Girl: Downplayed in comparison to her TV show counterpart, but still present.
- 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.
Trini Kwan / Omega Earth Ranger
- 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.
- Drop the Hammer: Her weapon as the yellow Omega Ranger.
- 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!
- 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 Commanding: 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.
- Try to be this to Rocky, Aisha and Adam, since he knows very well how it is feel unwanted and the newbie in the team.
- 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.
- The Un Chosen One: As it turns out, Saba wasn't too convinced he was a good choice for the White Ranger power. Tommy manages to get it anyway.
- Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: He dislikes bugs (ironically, just like the previous Black Ranger); Dayne, naturally, weaponizes this against him.
- 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.
- Hyper-Awareness: Shes always alert when something seems off.
An alien who joins Zack, Trini, and Jason when they become when they leave Angel Grove and go to a planet called Safe Haven.
- Accidental Murder: When she received her powers, the discharge vaporized her entire family.
- Big Bad Slippage: Ultimately becomes the main threat of the "Necessary Evil" arc.
- Berserk Button: Lord Drakkon, and unfortunately, this means Tommy Oliver as well.
- 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. In addition, while Rocky and co eventually work with their seniors as full-fledged members, Kima splits off from her team in order to follow her own agendas.
- Brought Down to Badass: The solarix depowered her entire army including her, but she still a tough ranger to fight as Trini learned
- Kill and Replace: Plans to replace the Rangers as the protectors of the galaxy with her group "The Anointed" by any means necessary.
- 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.
- Prongs of Poseidon: Her weapon fittingly enough is a trident.
- Sealed Evil in a Can: at the end of her arc, both she and Garrison was sealed away.
- Self-Made Orphan: The burst of energy when she received her powers vaporized everything around her, killing her parents and little brother.
- Sixth Ranger: Well fourth, but no matter at what point she joined the other three, they were already experienced as a team before her.
- Sixth Ranger Traitor: The first character in Power Rangers to actually fit this trope. After seeing Tommy, she decides to free the criminals she captured, backstab the Emissary and destroy the Morphin Grid.
- Stepford Smiler: She seems to be overly cheery with her new friends considering her trauma but later gets a little more vulnerable when revealing it to Trini.
- 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: Shes on the delivering end of this to Vox, whom she beats after hes established as a dangerous brute whos single handedly giving trouble to an entire village.
- 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.
- Adaptational Badass: Despite his bravery, Alpha was ill-suited for close combat in the TV series. In the Justice League/Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers crossover however, he takes one of Zedd's growth bombs to make himself as tall as Megazord and puts up an impressive fight against one of the monsters Zedd and Brainiac 5 unleashed, having the upper hand throughout the battle until Megazord takes over.
- 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.
- Adaptational Nice Guy: Hes much more friendly than he was in the first season of the original series which lines up time wise with the Comic Book.
- Big Fun: While he has slight jerky qualities, he more resembles the love able goofball he was in later series than the Fat Bastard he was in the first season.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: As always, with Skull.
- Loves My Alter Ego: Big fan of the Power Rangers, even starting Ranger Station with Skull.
- Purple Is Powerful: Main universe Bulk briefly becomes a Purple Ranger with the empowered spare change. He even gets a Zord.
- Chivalrous Pervert: Tries hard not to be the second part with his date with Kimberly even refusing to kiss her cause he realize she was beating herself up with what happened with her ex.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Bulk.
- 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.
- Amicable Exes: What he and Kimberly eventually become.
- 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. Issue #51 reveals he was even friends with Rocky when they were younger.
- Took a Level in Jerkass: Falls into this towards Kimberly after being rescued by the Rangers.
- The Chooser of The One: He's the guardian of the White Ranger power, and determines who is worthy enough to properly wield it. He's not convinced Tommy is the right choice.
- 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.
Jennifer Jen Scotts
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.
- 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.
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 Drakkon's 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.
- 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!
- Mentor Occupational Hazard: The Blue Emissary gets killed by Kiya when she turns traitor.
- Primary-Color Champion: They have no set form but their respective colors which are red, blue, and yellow, the most prominent three colors used in Power Rangers series. note Otherwise they shift between different forms of Rangers of their color.
- Underestimating Badassery: They dismiss Zordon's worries about Drakkon, since he's just a mortal human, and were willing to sit back let things play out until Drakkon forced his way into their dimension and defeated them.
- You Cannot Fight Fate: When Kiya talks to the Blue Emissary about Tommy being the White Ranger, he already knows that he would fail to convince Kiya that Tommy wasn't a threat but still tries anyway, and even predicts Kiya's betrayal seconds before it happens.
- 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.
- 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.
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
- Canon Foreigner: None of them have counterparts that are even mentioned in the show, nor in Super Sentai.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Batman Can Breathe in Space: Horribly Averted for the very first time in franchise history when Psycho Green breaks his helmet and he suffocates to death.
- 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.
Beyond the Grid team
- 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.
- 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.
- Taken to a further degree with his other comic appearances, particularly in "The Trial of Astronema" where he creates a hologram of Astronema in order to fool the public into believing that Karone and Astronema were actually different beings and subsequently rescue Karone from her trial. Karone, who had been hoping to properly atone for her crimes as Astronema, is not pleased.
- BrotherSister Team: With Karone in the Beyond the Grid Arc.
- Human Alien: Originally came from KO-35.
- 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, hes 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.
- Gosh Darn It to Heck!: Though Power Rangers isn't known for any harsh language, Cam at one point says "Oh peas and rice.".
- Intergenerational Friendship: With Heckyl, who he tries and occasionally succeeds in getting to smile.
- Same Character, but Different: In his own season, Cam was a calm Deadpan Snarker or the Straight Man to the antics of the rest of his team. Here, he's been trying to crack jokes to make other people smile and panics a lot in response to what's been happening.
- 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 than 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.
- This is taken further when his focus issue shows that his Ranger suit originally had the Kyoryu Navy coloration before changing.
- Mythology Gag: Heckyl is heavily based off Enter, primary villain of Tokumei Sentai Go Busters, though both his actor and the executive producer of Dino Charge have claimed it was unintentional. 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 a good guy.
- 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.
- 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 melting 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 his 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.
- Nonindicative Name: His Ranger name would indicate an evil or formally villainous Ranger, but he only became a Ranger after he turned good and the name is the result of following the naming scheme from his season where the Rangers were called the same thing as their Energem color.
- 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 or by his previous actions.
- 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.
- 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.
- All for Nothing: A small example, but preventing her brother from destroying the Data Cards ends up being for nothing when she destroys them anyway to show the Psycho Rangers she trusts them as individuals.
- The Atoner: An important part of her character is that she believes she needs to atone, one way or another, for her crimes as Astronema. In the 2018 Anniversary issue, she has no problem being executed by the court because she felt she had to pay for what she did to their planets as Andromeda, and got mad when Andros effectively prevents that. Her main arc in The Psycho Path she tries to make up for her actions as Astronema by redeeming the resurrected Psycho Rangers, seeing them as her responsibility.
- BrotherSister Team: With Andros in The Beyond the Grid Arc.
- Human Alien: Originally came from KO-35.
- Hypocrite: Despite constantly preventing Trek from destroying the current set of Psycho Rangers and remaking them from the Data Cards, she ultimately decides to destroy the current set of Psycho Rangers and bring them back with the Data Cards, so they can be brought back with a better sense of morality. Natually, all of them call her out on this.
- Fights Like a Normal: She revealed to Psycho Green that she still had her Astronema powers, and just chose not to use them.
- Morality Pet: Thanks to exploiting Trek's reprogamming of them, she makes herself this to the Psycho Rangers, making them focus on non-lethal options, treating them as individuals, and making them bond as a team.
- 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.
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.
Mia Watanabe (Samurai Pink Ranger)
Joel Rawlings (Green Lightspeed Ranger)
Tyler Navarro (Dino Charge Red)
T.J. Johnson (Blue Space Ranger)
Orion (Super Megaforce Silver Ranger)
Riley Griffin (Dino Charge Green Ranger)
Conner McKnight (Dino Thunder Red Ranger)
Dana Mitchell (Pink Lightspeed Ranger)
- 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)
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 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.
Wesley Wes Collins
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 didnt last long.
- Posthumous Character: Is only shown in a flashback and has been dead for over ten thousand years otherwise.
Rita Repulsa Dark Ranger Red
- 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.
- Matricide: Gives it a darn good try.
- 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 Dark Ranger Yellow
- 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.
- Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal: When Goldar tries to justify saving the Rangers, Rita cut his wings off.
- Villainous Friendship: With Scorpina. The two even enjoy an unsanctioned day off from work together on Earth.
Finster Dark Ranger Pink
Baboo Dark Ranger Black
- Secret Test of Character: Under Rita intruction he gave one to each of his his fellow followers to see how loyal they are to Rita.
Dark Ranger Blue
- Adaptational Badass: Same as Rita. Freed from the restrictions of BS&P and costume restrictions, he's far more dangerous, and actually fights the Rangers personally on occasion.
- All According to Plan: He depowered Tommy, knowing Zordon would send him after the White Ranger powers... so Zedd could find them and claim them for himself. Jossed that it wasn't really Zedd
- Big Bad: Of the Necessary Evil arc.
- The Dreaded: Rita and her minions are all 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:
- Why he turns his enemies' objects and pets into monsters, instead of using Finster's creations.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.
- Why he turns his enemies' objects and pets into monsters, instead of using Finster's creations.
- Pet the Dog: When he learns that his lackeys did not abandon Earth and even try to perform evil deeds, he commends them on their works. Even awarding them the power to become his evil Rangers.
- Superior Successor: Is out to prove that he's this to Rita.
- Never Recycle Your Schemes: In the Mighty Morphin' era (specifically, when Aisha, Rocky and Adam join the team) after another monster is defeated, he decides not to send another monster and expect different results, but instead hires a bounty hunter to take them down.
A criminal from planet Sirius, the same planet as Anubis "Doggie" Kruger.
- Combat Pragmatist: He makes sure to study all the Rangers' past battles before engaging them, and opens their first fight by using a micro-yield EMP to disable the Blade Blasters.
- Good Scars, Evil Scars: He's a ruthless assassin with a giant "X" scarred across his face.
- Malicious Misnaming: He makes a point of calling Squatt and Babboo by insulting nicknames.
- Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: When he realize that Kiya plan is being derailed rapidly, he ultimately decides to flee (But not before freeing Lord Zedd).
- "X" Marks the Hero: Inverted.
- Not Quite Dead: Her introductory story arc was in the pages of Go Go, the end of which she was hit at short range by the Power blaster. Shes shown over a year later in the pages of the main book to be alive and to have joined the Alliance of Evil. Trini even lampshades this.
- Ax-Crazy: He's so deranged that even as he's being defeated by Jason and Tommy, he's still delighted by the sheer violence happening around him.
Trek (formerly Super Sonic Green)
- Adaptational Badass: In Power Rangers in Space, the Psychos 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 Cannot Comprehend Good: He wants to have a family with Karone and the other Psychos, but he's too selfish and set in his ways to truly comprehend what that actually means. Thus, Karone managing to form a genuine familial love with the Psychos and them turning on him blindsides him.
- 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.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: Resurrecting the Psychos and reprogramming them to have familial loyalty backfires, as Karone's kindness towards them causes them to choose her over him and turn on him when he attacks her.
- I Just Want to Be Loved: Its implied in the Psycho Path OGN that he genuinely wants a family in Karone and the other Psychos. However hes much to selfish and set in his ways to embrace What family truly means.
- Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: Trek reprogamming the Psycho Rangers' personalities ends up backfiring on him, since their added loyalty to Karone and to each other is what allows Karone to slowly change them to the side of good within the month she was with them.
- Not Quite Dead: Turns out he wasn't killed by the 1969 team but ended up buried deep beneath the surface of the moon and has been slowly digging his way out, though he somehow survived the Z-Wave despite being likely very close to the Dark Fortress.
- 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.
- Ape Shall Never Kill Ape: They choose to imprison Trek rather than kill him because of this trope.
- Back from the Dead: The rest of the Rangers were recreated by Trek after he obtained their Data Cards. By the end of The Psycho Path, Karone destroys their Data Cards, ensuring that they can't be brought back again if the Rangers destroy them if they go evil again.
- Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: They all see Karone (or more appropriately Astronema) as their mother and not only is she only person they don't greet with violence, but they also find themselves loyal to her even as they become aware that she's trying to change them.
- Grew Beyond Their Programming: Somewhat helped along by Karone, they eventually choose to be more than the Living Weapons they had been originally created to be.
- Hazy Feel Turn: After being revived, Karone tries to show them that there's more to life than just their programming. While she initially plans on destroying them again to revive them as complete good guys, she can't go through with it and instead destroys their data cards, convincing Andros to lie to the others and say she did destroy them and remade them more moral, when in truth she allowed them to go on their own and decide whether they want to reclaim their humanity, or want to be evil. As such, they decide to go wherever they want, and figure out the details later. But based on their more peaceful demeanor and willingness to avoid lethal force, maybe Karone managed to get through to them.
- The Nameless: Due to the fact five of them can simply be brought back from their Data Cards whenever they are destroyed or don't live up to Trek's standards, they simply call each other by their colors until the end of The Psycho Path where all but Yellow has adopted a new name.
- Psycho Rangers: They're the trope namer, of course. This even extends to their new base of operations, The Psycho Megaship.
- Reforged into a Minion: The Psycho Path reveals that Astromena created them by taking 5 helpless aliens and forcibly converting them into the Psycho Rangers, destroying who they once were in the process.
- Same Character, but Different: While still crazy, they had one single goal during their time on In Space and Lost Galaxy which was killing their respective Ranger. They didnt care about anything else at all. Justified due to Psycho Green modifying the Data cards before bringing them back.
- What the Hell, Hero?: They are not happy when they learn that Karone planned to destroy them and bring them back with the Data Cards with a new understanding of morality, especially since she spent the last couple of months stopping Trek from doing that exact thing, minus the morality thing.
Psycho Red aka Virgil
- Murder Is the Best Solution: Is a believer in this, as he doesn't understand why Astromena is teaching him non-lethal moves when killing is so mush easier. She proceeds to take him down with a headlock as a demonstration. Notably, he still has this mindset at the end of the story, commenting that killing's easier when he's practicing his moves.
- The Leader: He's this to the Psycho Rangers. He takes a backseat to Karone and Psycho Green throughout The Psycho Path, but when left to their own devices, like during the battle with the Space Rangers, its clear he's the one calling the shots.
- Jerkass Has a Point: He tells Karone that if she intends to change them, it's an good idea not to bring up the Power Rangers, the people who they were made to kill and, also, killed them twice, as examples in the future.
- Shout Out: An in-universe example, as he seemed to named himself after one of the protagonists of the Western movie Karone had everyone watch as a bonding activity.
Psycho Black aka Photon
- 24-Hour Armor: He's the only one who already wearing armor when they demorph, and is always seen wearing it.
- The Lancer: Fills this role in the Psycho Rangers. Most of the time when he speaks, he's seen with Psycho Red. When discussing with Red about the coming Rangers, he believes that they should kill them, only to relent when Red brings what up the consequences would be. Notably, during the fight, when Red winds up to deliver a killing blow to the Black Space Ranger, he's the one who calls Red, causing him to hesitate and let the Ranger get in an opening.
Psycho Blue aka Axe
- An Axe to Grind: As before, though now he talks about it when hes not using it and is usually seen holding it when hes not even morphed. He even names himself Axe
- You Have Got to Be Kidding Me!: He thinks Karone is pulling his leg when she starts talking about "Soda"
- The Nameless: At the end of the novel, shes the only one who hasnt taken a new name.
- The Smart Girl: Psycho Green even refers to her as such.
Psycho Pink: aka Nokrea
- Mommy's Girl: As a result of Karone going completely out of her way to save her when killing her was easier, She essentially becomes the closest to Karone, to the point where she sticks up for her when Karone reveals that she planned to kill them and restore them with the Ranger cards.
- Irony: She becomes closest to Karone, a Pink Ranger, when she was designed to kill a Pink Ranger in the first place.
World of the Coinless
- 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.
- Godhood Seeker: He wants to be a god. In Shattered Grid #1, he achieves that goal.
- 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: Appropriately applied since hes an evil inversion of the franchises most beloved character. 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.
- Horrifying the Horror: Him being the horror, whatever he experienced between the end of Shattered Grid and Aftermath clearly scared the crap out of him.
- 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.
- 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.
- Offscreen Moment of Awesome: Albeit a villainous example but Word of God hints that even though Drakkon rules this earth, the threats that plagued the main earth still came and Drakkon took care of them. This means that Drakkon probably defeated (and if so definitely killed) most of the villains and some heroes from other series in the franchise. To spell that out he fought and killed Lord Zedd, Master Vile, The Machine Empire, Divatox,Dark Specter, Astronema, Ecliptor, Queen Bansheera, Diabolico, their Demon Army, Master Org, Lothor as well as the members Wind And Thunder Academies, The Master and Udonna, The Order Of the Claw, The Nighlocks and Samurai Rangers, Mavros Empire and Galvanax. Hes got a pretty high body even before we see him.
- 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. It's revealed that this is because he can't stand that in every Other universe Tommy Oliver is a much better person than him. That they met much of the same adversity that he did head on and he couldnt use those as a Freudian Excuse.
- 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.
- The Sociopath: Lack of empathy? Check. Consummate manipulator? Believe it. Pathological need for stimulation? Likes to kill who he can to make his existence worth while. Lack of reciprocity? It's all about him, so don't even try to work with him. And grandiose sense of self-worth? Sees himself as the only perfect Tommy. Pretty much whatever our universe's Tommy Oliver is, Drakkon is not.
- 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.
Kimberly Ann Hart (of Drakkon's universe)
- 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.
- Awesome Momentof Crowning: After defeating the Ghost of Rita she becomes the ruler of Drakkon's forces.
- 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.
