Tatsuya Asami/Time Red

Portrayed by: Masaru Nagai

The main character of the series, he is a 22 year old martial artist who was "drafted" into the team. He refuses to accept fate and his heritage as future CEO of his father Wataru's company, the Asami group. He believes that people can control their own destiny, but only if they fight for a desirable future. After joining the Timerangers, Tatsuya decides to move out of his father's house and uses his savings to rent the building that would be the Timeranger's home. Tatsuya works as a Karate Teacher at Tomorrow Research. When operating the Robo formations, Tatsuya is usually in charge of accessing the finisher moves to recapture the Londers Prisoners by wielding a miniature version of the Space-Time Sword/Chrono Divider to mimic the movement pattern. Although Yuuri is the team leader, Tatsuya is the driving force of the Timerangers, essentially acting as field commander during the battles.

  • 10-Minute Retirement: Tatsuya retires from the Timerangers to focus on his father's company after the latter was seriously injured. But it doesn't last for long...
  • All Up to You: Near the end of the series after the other Timerangers went back in the future and Naoto dead, he fought the enemies alone. The Timerangers literally made it back in time.
  • The Chick: Even more so than Yuuri, who is The Leader of the group. This is rather justified since he was recruited by the Timerangers in the present time.
  • Determinator: He refuses to give up no matter how hard the situation gets.
  • The Hero: The main protagonist of the series due to him being the main driving force of the team.
  • Lonely Rich Kid: He doesn't have any friends and is the sole heir to the Asami family's corporation.
  • Nice Guy: He has a friendly personality.
  • Rookie Red Ranger: He joins the Timerangers as its new recruit.
  • The Runaway: He decides to move out of his father's house and uses his savings to rent a building for Tomorrow Research to avoid being controlled by his father.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: He bails out of the Asahi Corporation to avoid being the heir of his father's company.

Yuuri/Time Pink

Portrayed by: Mika Katsumura

The female protagonist of the series, she is a 21 year old Police officer from the 30th century. Since the police were aware of Don Dolnero's plan, she posed as a TPD cadet to stop him. She has a grudge against Don Dolnero for sending an assassin who killed her family. She practically leads the Timerangers. She is initially cold towards Tatsuya, but eventually warms up to him. Yuuri works as a detective at Tomorrow Research.

  • The Chick: Actually averted despite being the only girl and being the pink ranger. This position actually belongs to Tatsuya.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Or future since they went back in time. Well you get the idea.

Ayase/Time Blue

Portrayed by: Yuji Kido

Formerly a racer, this calm-headed 22 year old figure has a knack for highspeed battles. He also has the incurable terminal illness Osiris Syndrome. He is also close friends with Tatsuya. When Tatsuya found out about Ayase's illness, he was determined to help his friend. However, when Ayase was suffering from his illness it was a shock to the other Timerangers when Tatsuya was forced to tell them about Ayase's illness. Ayase, who is the only Timeranger that has a drivers license, works as an escort at Tomorrow Research.

  • The Lancer: Before getting better, he contrasts further than the optimistic Tatsuya by being depressive, making him the team's lone wolf until Naoto came along.
  • Man in White: In his TPD uniform.

Domon/Time Yellow

Portrayed by: Shuhei Izumi

A 22 year old womanizer who was formerly a professional grappler that tends to overdo it sometimes. Domon was banned from professional fighting for never being on time for a match because he would chase after girls. Despite this Domon has a great respect for the rules and after learning that Sion is an orphan sticks up for him and refuses for anyone to call him an alien. However, Domon who comes from a large family is the only one who truly misses the 30th century and had some resentment towards Captain Ryuya for trapping them in the 20th century which he took out on Tatsuya when they first met due to his resemblance to Ryuya. Although Domon works as the self-defense teacher at Tomorrow Research, he never got any students. Domon also argues with Ayase frequently. Later on Domon falls in love with Honami Moriyama, a camerawoman, and after his secret identity is revealed to her, the two started dating and Domon eventually told her that he came from the 30th century.

  • The Big Guy: He's the most muscular man out out of all the Timerangers.

Sion/Time Green

Portrayed by: Masahiro Kuranuki

A 17 year old alien from the planet Hubbard, which was destroyed as the result of war and was thus raised on Earth in a laboratory. He is nimble and is curious of everything around him. Sion is also fond of dyeing his hair, which he does every so often since he was three. Due to his alien physiology, Sion only needs to sleep once per year, but it takes him a week of hibernation when he does it. He is also the Timerangers' technical expert able to work with any machine. Sion is in charge of computer repairs for Tomorrow Research. He is (currently) the youngest Ranger to exist being born around 2983. In the finale Sion learns that because Hubbard had no contact with Earth prior to its destruction, his own history hadn't changed.

  • Human Aliens: He originates from the planet Hubbard and looks almost completely human aside from his oddly coloured hair which he says he's dyed since he was three.

Naoto Takizawa/Time Fire

Portrayed by: Shinji Kasahara

Tatsuya's 28 year old rival and leader of the City Guardians established by the Asami Group. Unlike Tatsuya, Naoto came from the other side of the tracks, getting by on a scholarship as the two of them attended prep school. Naoto envied Tatsuya and wanted to be the better of the two. After becoming Time Fire, the Asami group attempted to analyze the technology for mass production, but could not fully understand the 30th century Technology. Later he found out through Sion that the Londers monsters are just prisoners and only need to be recaptured. He then learned that the Timerangers came from the 30th century, and because of his desire for power he chose to find a way to use his new knowledge of the Timerangers to his advantage. Near the finale, after Wataru Asami was hospitalized in a previous episode, Naoto was able to use that knowledge to gain full control of the City Guardians. Naoto also owned two pet birds, Tora and Sakura, which he later gives to a little girl.

  • Perpetual Frowner: He is always seen without a smile on his face.
  • Redemption Equals Death: Despite his rivalry with Tatsuya, what he does towards the end of the series easily makes up for it. That includes him voluntarily giving his V-Commander to Tatsuya to help end the disaster plaguing the 20th century when he is killed by a Zenitt.
  • The Rival: He views Tatsuya as his rival, given that Naoto grew up in poverty.
  • Sixth Ranger: While he never officially joined the Timerangers, he was labelled as the sixth ranger as of Gokaiger.
  • Swiss Army Weapon: The DV Defender
    • Cool Gun: His standard form of the DV Defender is the Defender Gun.
    • Cool Sword: He can also turn it into the sword-like Defender Sword
  • Tyrannosaurus rex: His V-Rex greatly resembles this, given that it was sent from the future.
  • The Unfettered: He's willing to do whatever it takes to seize power.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Ryūya had him take his place during the disaster in the 20th century.



Voiced by: Yusuke Numata

  • Eureka Moment: He experiences one when he realizes the Lambda 2000 crystal caused the disaster in the 20th century to occur.
  • Heroic BSoD: He experiences one when he realizes that he seemingly didn't get the data about the future events.

Honami Moriyama

Portrayed by: Tamao Yoshimura

    Londers Family 

Don Dolnero

Voiced by: Ryuzaburo Otomo

  • Alliterative Name: Don Dolnero.
  • Benevolent Boss: At least by the standards of mob bosses, he deeply loves his family.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: While he's introduced as the main antagonist of the series, he has too many good qualities to maintain the Big Bad position come the series end. He's ultimately killed off by Gien, and while he doesn't know it, he was nothing more than Ryuya's pawn.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: He may have been killed in the final episodes of Timeranger, but all there's left are Gien and Ryuya.
  • The Don: He's the leader of his mob boss and appropriately enough, his first name is Don.
  • Enemy Mine: Whenever Gien goes Ax-Crazy, Dolnero is not above helping out the Timerangers in stopping his friend's Omnicidal Maniac attempts.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Saved Gien's life after the latter helped him hide from his enemies and genuinely cares for both his moll Lila and the criminals he inducts into his family.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: He may be a ruthless mafia boss and a murderous thug, but even Dolnero draws the line at killing for pleasure and he knows there are some things worth more than money.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Ryuzaburo Otomo voices Dolnero with a deep and guttural growl.
  • Fat Bastard: He's overweight and is a mob boss.
  • The Heavy: The focal antagonist and driving force for most of the show, at least until Gien goes crazy and kills him.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Towards the end of the series, Dolnero attempts to help the City Guardians and the Timerangers stop Gien from becoming the main threat to the 20th century. His final attempt results in his death, but not before handing over all of the remaining Londers prisoners to the Timerangers.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite his maliciousness and greedy personality, Dolnero deeply loves his family to the point that he asks the Timerangers to take his remaining criminals back to the 30th century in his dying moments.
  • Money Fetish: In Case 14, Gien says that he doesn't really need money since he can just take what he wants. He responds that he just loves having money. However, he does know that there are some things that aren't worth money.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: He deeply regrets what happened when he turned Gien into a robot.
  • One Last Smoke: Dolnero attempts to smoke his last cigar after Gien mortally wounds him, but is unable to do so.
  • Redemption Equals Death: After realizing the depths of Gien's insanity, Dolnero turns over the remaining criminals to the Timerangers and goes to try and talk some sense into Gien, but is killed in the process.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Or at the very least is willing to hire a hit-man to take out an entire family just because the father was a detective investigating Dolnero's criminal organization.
  • Ugly Guy Hot Moll: With Lila.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Everything he did at the start of Timeranger which kickstarted everything was allowed to happen by Ryuya.


Portrayed by: Asami Kuru

  • Ambiguously Human: Though she is shown to be able to eat.
  • Ambiguously Brown: In one episode, after she went on vacation at a resort, she returned ALL brown. Back to normal the next episode though.
  • Girls with Guns: Notable, as villainesses from Zonnette to Denus all use swords.
  • Gold Digger: By her own admission. She openly states that she's only with Dolnero for the money. Although when Dolnero dies, she admits that she does like him a little even without money.
  • Image Song: Frozen Beauty


Voiced by: Koji Tobe

  • Ax-Crazy: Over the course of the series, he grows insane to the point that he kills Dolnero and starts the disaster in the 20th century.
  • Big Bad: Of the Final Boss variety, with Ryuya playing the role as the main villain.
  • Character Death: He dies in the series finale after Tatsuya destroys Neo Crisis.
  • Cybernetics Eat Your Soul: When he is converted into a robot, he slowly loses his mind to the point that he kills Dolnero.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: He used to be a normal boy who befriended Dolnero. When Dolnero's enemies found him, they killed him. Not only does Dolnero rebuild him, but he soon realizes that Gien has actually gone insane from the conversion.
  • The Dragon: He serves as Dolnero's second-in-command.
  • Dragon Ascendant: He takes over as the main villain in the present after killing Dolnero in the last three episodes.
  • Evil Genius: Zigzagged. Despite being so skilled in building robots, Gien is not good with numbers, probably due to being mentally defective.
  • Final Boss: After killing Dolnero, he becomes the main threat to the 20th century. Even though Captain Asami is the true Big Bad of the series, the Final Battle was against Gien.
  • For the Evulz: He has a disturbing love for causing destruction, even when there's no benefit to it. He even admits that he considers it a hobby. And his desire for destruction only gets worse as the series progresses.
  • The Heavy: After killing Dolnero, Gien takes over as the driving villain of the story, even though Ryuya's the actual main villain.
  • Irony: Gien is The Unfettered Omnicidal Maniac, an Ax-Crazy Sadist, and an Evil Genius who sucks at counting numbers.
  • Lack of Empathy: He is more than willing to kill without ANY remorse whatsoever because he can.
  • The Mentally Disturbed: Beneath is eccentric Evil Genius personality lies a ravenous craving for death and destruction.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: Gien cares for nothing but killing anyone For the Evulz. Not even Dolnero is safe from his madness.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: Was originally a Manchild with mental problems before his conversion into a Cyborg and later went mad as a result.
  • Restraining Bolt: Dolnero had this prepared in case Gien has gone too far with his "hobby". Ryuya removed it two episodes later.
  • Sadist: As Gien puts it, "destruction is better than the finest wine".
  • Sanity Slippage: Over the course of the series, he goes insane due to his conversion into a robot and eventually becoming the main threat to the 20th century.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: This is the side effect of getting a robot body, as Dolnero found out.
  • Tragic Villain: One of the biggest examples in Super Sentai. Once a human who developed a friendship with Dolnero, he was killed by a rival gang. Dolnero, saddened by his death, rebuilt him as a robot. Unfortunately, the process starts to drive him insane, and by the end of the series, he kills Dolnero in his madness and nearly destroys the present. To make matters worse, he was nothing more than a weapon of mass destruction to Ryuya, who used him as a pawn to save his own life.
  • The Unfettered: To the point where Dolnero can't even stop him. Then again, Gien's conversion into a Cyborg is Dolnero's fault and Ryuya made it even worse.
  • Unwitting Pawn: To Ryuya. In order for Ryuya to be saved, the catastrophe caused by Gien in the present had to happen.
  • Villainous Friendship: With Dolnero. Their friendship would've ran smoothly if it weren't for an incident that resulted with Gien's conversion into a Cyborg.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Gien has finally lost it and goes ballistic when the other four Timerangers (in Time Jet Gamma) knock him and his Humongous Mecha away.
    Gien: Impossible...! Who the hell are you all!? I WON'T LET YOU GET IN MY WAY!!
  • Walking Spoiler: You can see how many spoiler tags mark his section, can't you?
  • Was Once a Man: He was originally a human before Dolnero's enemies killed him. Dolnero himself has Gien rebuilt as a result.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: He was once just a human boy that Don Dolnero befriended while hiding from a rival family. Said family found him, tortured and killed him for fun under the pretence of being for not revealing Dolnero's location. Dolnero brought him to a friend of his to transfer his mind to a robot body, that had side effects that were driving him insane. That's right, the Final Boss of the series is a cyborg with the damaged mind of a human boy. Quite possibly one of the most tragic Sentai villains.

    The Mastermind 

Captain Ryuya

Portrayed by: Masaru Nagai

The stern captain of the Timerangers. He helps the Timerangers by sending them mecha and weapons, should the rangers need this.

In actuality, he's the true villain of the series. Having received a vision of two possible catastrophes - one in the past, one in the present - Ryuya is concerned solely with the fact that he dies in both possibilities. As a result, he took actions to ensure that the catastrophe in the past would occur and that his own life would be saved. To do this, he set Don Dolnero free, kickstarting the entire plot and putting Gien in a position where the catastrophe could happen. When the Timerangers barring Tatsuya return to the future, they make an attempt to escape to help Tatsuya, during which Ayase fatally wounds Ryuya, prompting him to reveal all he's done.

  • Ambition Is Evil: His ambition is to change the way he died in the futures that he visited.
  • Badass Normal: To an extent. While he's not The Heavy and doesn't get a proper fight, he's the only normal human to be the Big Bad for the season. While there have been former humans or humanoids as main villains, all of them, even the final villains of Flashman and Liveman, had some sort of superhuman powers. Ryuya, as part of his plan, gave up his powers and only briefly took Tatsuya's Time Red powers.
  • Big Bad: The main antagonist of the series. Dolnero and Gien were nothing more than pawns to him.
  • Big Good: What he tries to come off as. As the series goes on, his benevolent image slowly breaks apart until he reveals his villainy.
  • The Captain: He serves as the captain of the Timerangers, communicating with Tac to help provide weapons and mecha.
  • Character Death: He is killed during his scuffle with Ayase in the Grand Finale.
  • The Chessmaster: He manipulates time and history to correct the disaster that would happen in the future and his death. In the end, however, he fails at preventing his own death from occurring.
  • Evil All Along: He's not nearly as well-intentioned as he appears. The whole series is a result of his actions, and he likely manipulated everything before the start.
  • Face–Heel Turn: When he learned about his destiny after going through two possible futures, Ryuya turned his back on the Time Patrol as Time Fire and became a villain.
  • Fallen Hero: He was the original Time Fire who later changed time to prevent disasters and his own death from occurring after learning that he was destined to die.
  • Identical Grandson: He is Tatsuya's descendant from the future.
  • Light Is Not Good: Dresses in white, yet is far more evil than the Londers Family - Dolnero and Lila have good qualities while Gien has the excuse of being driven insane.
  • The Man Behind the Man: Dolnero would never have gotten out and Gien would never have gone crazy if he didn't let them.
  • Man in White: As a requirement for all Time Patrol members, Ryuya wears a white uniform.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: Despite being able to wield the Time Red and Time Fire powers, he does little actual fighting in the series, preferring to manipulate everyone else instead.
  • Tyrant Takes the Helm: Takes the Time Red powers from Tatsuya near the end of the show in a bit of a Jerkass move. Come The Reveal, it's played perfectly straight.
  • The Unfought: There was never a full battle with him, but instead, he was killed off while trying to stop the Timerangers from going back and stopping Gien. Gien took Final Boss status while Ryuya remained one of the few final Sentai Big Bads to not get a proper fight, shared only with Great Professor Bias and Great Doctor Lee Keflen.
  • Walking Spoiler: It's hard not to talk about the character without mentioning a huge twist that occurs in the second half of the series, much less his wham of a death speech.
  • Wham Episode: More like a Wham Scene. His dying speech accomplishes quite a lot, as he effectively reveals that he was a far greater threat than Dolnero or Gien, even if he was less powerful.


How well does it match the trope?
