     Our Heroes 

In General:

  • Composite Character: Because of the nature of the Zordon era, outside of Andros (though he's still an example as seen below) and Zhane, the Power Rangers are a mash-up of Gekisou Sentai Carranger and Denji Sentai Megaranger, only because of the team change-over in Power Rangers Turbo, T.J., Cassie, Carlos, and Ashley are only a fusion of those two teams.
  • Discard and Draw: With the loss of the Turbo powers in the Turbo finale, T.J., Carlos, Cassie and Ashley now become the Space Rangers.
  • Fish out of Water: T.J., Cassie, Carlos and Ashley take a while to get used to space travel. Likewise, Andros doesn't adjust to Earth as quickly.
  • Guys Smash, Girls Shoot: The guys' personal weapons are used for melee combatnote  while the girls' personal weapons are guns.
  • Iconic Sequel Character: They are the seventh team introduced in the franchise but are undoubtedly one of the most popular ones.
  • Took a Level in Badass: T.J. Cassie, Carlos and Ashley all get to show off how far they've come since they became the Power Rangers. Highlights include T.J.'s use of strategy, Carlos in "Always A Chance" and the entire team in "Countdown To Destruction".

Andros / Red Space Ranger

Portrayed by Christopher Khayman Lee
Voiced by: Gabriel Gama (Latin American Spanish), Soichiro Hoshi (Japanese)

I will never stop searching.

Andros was the Red Space Ranger, and the person searching for Zordon at the start of the season. While reluctant to work with the four former Turbo Rangers, he eventually allowed them to join him in his quest. His other goal is to find out the secret of his missing sister, Karone.

  • Adaptation Species Change: Andros is a Human Alien while his Megaranger counterpart is human.
  • Badass Boast: "If you're on the side of evil, say Goodbye!"
  • Character Development: Andros started cold towards the other rangers, including his future girlfriend. However, as the series progresses, Andros becomes nicer and more confident, due to his relationship with Ashley.
  • Composite Character:
    • While he's not fused with anyone from Carranger, he is a fusion of Kenta and Professor Kubota {albeit sharing that role with Zordon).
    • His role as leader of the team is taken from Kouichirou Endou (Mega-Black).
  • Character Tic: He keeps his hair untied and often unknowingly tucks a strand behind his ear.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Starts as very aloof to the rest of the team, but it doesn't take long for him to come around.
  • Establishing Character Moment: His first appearance in the show establishes that he's no rookie after he infiltrates the villains with a cloak and fights his way through them when discovered.
  • Experienced Protagonist: While the rest of the team were Rangers before In Space started, Andros and Zhane have been fighting the good fight for far longer than they have.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: In the chapter titled "Red with Envy", where Andros reacts this way to Zhane (as he perceives it) when he spends time with Ashley. He gets better, after clarifying the misunderstanding.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: His main weapon is the Spiral Saber, which doubles as a drill.
    • BFG: The Spiral Saber Booster Mode (a combination of the Spiral Saber and the Astro Blaster).
  • Human Aliens: He's not from Earth.
  • I Work Alone: He isn't too happy to see the old guard. He dumps them on the nearest planet and leaves.
  • Iconic Outfit: His cloak made such an impact, he wears it in both his team-up appearances.
  • In the Hood: The above-mentioned cloak.
  • Ineffectual Loner: At first.
  • Law of Chromatic Superiority: See Super Mode below.
  • The Leader: To the Rangers.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Not all the time, but when he's upset enough, he tends to throw strategy out the window. TJ calls him out on this.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: Probably among the most handsome Red Rangers to date.
  • Meaningful Name: Andros means "man", and in many ways, he's the most human of the Space Rangers, despite being an alien.
  • Memento MacGuffin: His locket.
  • Mind over Matter: He can move things with his mind. It only works for small objects though, and as such it's more of a parlour trick than something that can be used in a fight.
  • Multicolored Hair: His signature brown Legolas-like hair and with its skunk stripes. According to his actor, this was accomplished via bleaching that part of his hair and was apparently an agonizing process.
  • My Sister Is Off-Limits!: He is not happy to hear that Zhane had dated Karone.
  • Official Couple: With Ashley.
  • Only One Name: His last name is unknown.
  • Psychic Powers: Has the power of telekinesis. He rarely uses it, though. Justified since it takes a lot of focus to use (something people generally don't have the luxury of in a fight) and he can only lift small objects. It's more of a parlor trick than fighting ability. Andros implies that this ability isn't specific to natives of KO-35 and could be taught to the other rangers given enough time.
  • Pretty Boy: Ashley certainly thought so.
  • Protagonist Power-Up Privileges: Has the honor of being the very first red ranger to receive a battlizer.
  • Related in the Adaptation: In 'Megaranger'', neither Dr. Hinlear or Shibolena, Karone's counterparts, are related to Kenta/MegaRed. And as Karone eventually becomes the second pink ranger of the succeeding team, this also extends to Saya/GingaPink.
  • Rookie Red Ranger: Inverted - he's the most experienced member of the core team, both as a Ranger and a space traveller. "You're planetary Rangers, from Earth. What do you know about space?"
    • On the other hand, he has trouble working with the team and is a new leader to the other Rangers, requiring them both to learn to trust each other.
  • Sarcasm-Blind
    Adelle: It's a surfboard. What planet are you from?
    Andros: KO-35. You know of it?
    Adelle: Smart aleck.
    Andros: Aleck? No, I'm Andros.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Sensitive Guy to Zhane's Manly Man.
  • Shoot the Dog: Forced to do this at the end of the series. To save the universe, he has to kill Zordon.
  • Skunk Stripe: Andros has bleach blond streaks on his hair.
  • Socially Awkward Hero: He's introduced infiltrating and escaping a gathering of every major villain with barely a scratch. Asking out a girl he likes, on the other hand...
  • Sole Survivor: According to his actor in an interview, the other four morphers he gave the others belonged to four other Rangers who died before the series, meaning until Zhane resurrected he was the last surviving member of his team.
  • Super Mode: Was the first Red Ranger to get a Battlizer, as seen in "Mission to Secret City".
  • Survivor Guilt: His loner attitude in the first episode is implied to be the result of Zhane performing a Heroic Sacrifice to protect him. The actor's personal belief that the four other morphers belonged to Rangers who perished adds to this.
  • This Is a Drill: Has the Spiral Saber as his main weapon.

Carlos Vallerte / Black Space Ranger

Portrayed by: Roger Velasco
Voiced by: Carlos Hugo Hidalgo (Latin American Spanish), Tsuyoshi Takishita (Japanese)
Plus, [the Megatank] looks cool, too!
The former Green Turbo Ranger, Carlos along with his teammates (minus Justin) went to space after Zordon was captured. They soon met Andros, and Carlos became the Black Space Ranger.

T.J. Johnson / Blue Space Ranger

Portrayed by: Selwyn Ward
Voiced by: Benjamín Rivera (Latin American Spanish), Yuji Kishi (Japanese)
He gets it, alright. He just doesn't accept it.

The former Red Turbo Ranger, T.J. along with his teammates (minus Justin) went to space after Zordon was captured. They soon met Andros, and T.J. became the Blue Space Ranger.

Note: This section only applies to tropes featured in In Space. For the rest, see the character sheet for Power Rangers Turbo.

  • An Axe to Grind: His main weapon is the Astro Axe.
  • Bald, Black Leader Guy: Andros may call the shots in a fight, but in pretty much every other situation the other Rangers defer to T.J. Mostly because he's the Badass Bookworm and one of the most level-headed Rangers in the entire franchise. The fact that they're used to following TJ's lead by then doesn't hurt either.
  • Bald of Awesome: He is bald and badass.
  • Black and Nerdy: The most intellectual ranger and the one most adept at technology.
  • Deadpan Snarker
    Ashley: Who would [poison Darkonda]?
    TJ: Probably only half the universe.
  • Genius Bruiser: TJ's both a skilled strategist and a skilled fighter.
  • Identity Amnesia: In "T.J.'s Identity Crisis".
  • Number One: See above.
  • The Smart Guy: By far the most cautious Ranger and most likely to go into battle with a plan of attack. Tends to call out the other Rangers, especially Andros, when they're being too reckless.
  • The Strategist: Always the one who comes up with a good strategy. The Rangers would not have beaten the Psycho Rangers without TJ's planning.

Ashley Hammond / Yellow Space Ranger

Portrayed by: Tracy Lynn Cruz
Voiced by: Mayra Arellano (Latin American Spanish), Sanae Kobayashi (Japanese)
Have you ever been to Earth before? Trust me, you're gonna love it there. There's beaches, music, there's the mall and everything!

Zhane / Silver Space Ranger

Portrayed by: Justin Nimmo
Voiced by: Irwin Daayán (Latin American Spanish), Masaya Matsukaze (Japanese)

Years ago, Zhane fought with Andros as the Silver Space Ranger, but during an attack on KO-35, he was critically injured and placed in a cryogenic pod. Two years later, Zhane would reawaken during an attack on the Astro Megaship, and joined his best friend and new teammates from time to time.

     Their Friends 

The Phantom Ranger

Voiced by: Alex Dood, José García (eps. 11 and 12, Latin American Spanish), Moisés Iván Mora (eps. 42 and 43, Latin American Spanish), Koji Yusa (Japanese)
The mysterious Ranger from Turbo.

Note: This section only applies to tropes featured in In Space. For the rest, see the character sheet for Power Rangers Turbo.

  • Invisibility
  • Mysterious Protector
  • Ship Tease: With Cassie, continuing from Turbo: at the end of his last message to the Rangers.
    "I'll be alright, Cassie. Please - don't forget me."
  • The Unreveal: Perhaps the biggest unanswered question in the entire PR metaseries. Who is he? It's likely the suit is his real body.


Voiced by: Bob Manahan, Jorge Santos (Latin American Spanish), Ryūgo Saitō (Japanese)
The original mentor to the Mighty Morphin, Zeo, and Turbo Rangers. Zordon was captured by the United Alliance of Evil.

Note: This section is only for tropes introduced in In Space. For the rest, see the character sheets for MMPR, Zeo and Turbo.

Alpha 6

Voiced by: Wendee Lee, Rocío Prado (base voice, Latin American Spanish), Araceli de León (ep. 1, Latin American Spanish), Mari Maruta (Japanese)
The robotic assistant of the Power Chamber. After the Turbo Ranger's defeat, he joined the four into Space, and after meeting Andros, he received a replacement voicebox after his old one broke, and became the caretaker of the Astro Megaship.

Note: This section only applies to tropes featured in In Space. For the rest, see the character sheet for Power Rangers Turbo.


Voiced by: Julie Maddalena, Rocío Prado (base voice, Latin American Spanish), Rebeca Manríquez (some episodes, Latin American Spanish), Mie Odaki (Japanese)
The Astro Megaship's A.I.
  • Benevolent A.I.: She's helpful to the Rangers and saves the day occasionally. It's implied that she was Andros' only companion during his long solo mission with no-one else.
  • Character Death: In Power Rangers Lost Galaxy, she's destroyed along with the Megaship.
  • Cyber Cyclops: DECA's cameras, which are stationed all over the Megaship, consist of a small egg-like sphere on a wire arm with a HAL-like red lens.
  • Dub Name Change: Known as "DENA" in the Japanese dub.
  • Those Two Guys: Develops this sort of relationship with Alpha. The two even teamed up and managed to fend off Ecliptor when he invaded the Megaship.

Adelle Ferguson

Portrayed by: Aloma Wright, Ángeles Bravo (Latin American Spanish), Mari Maruta (Japanese)
The owner of the Surf Spot.

Farkas "Bulk" Bulkmeyer & Eugene "Skull" Skullovitch

Portrayed by: Paul Schrier (Bulk) and Jason Narvy (Skull)
Voiced by: Carlos del Campo (Bulk, Latin American Spanish) and Roberto Carrillo (Skull, Latin American Spanish); Noboru Ōyama (Bulk, Japanese) and Masahito Kawanakago (Skull, Japanese)
The comedic duo since Mighty Morphin, Bulk and Skull find themselves working for Professor Phenomenus to find extraterrestrial life.

Note: This section is only for tropes introduced in In Space. For the rest, see the character sheets for MMPR, Zeo and Turbo.

  • Badass Normal: In the last episode they have a formidable performance against the Quantrons.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Oh very much so.
  • I Am Spartacus: Bulk does this in the finale when Astronema swears to destroy the Earth if the Rangers don't show themselves. Bulk is the first person in the crowd to declare himself a Ranger.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: Until the final episode, they weren't aware of who the Space Rangers were.
  • Shoo Out the Clowns: Got a massive reduction in screen time but made up for it in "Countdown to Destruction".
  • Those Two Guys: It's not them without this trope.
  • Undying Loyalty: Bulk refuses to give up believing in the Rangers, even after the entire Earth's been steam-rolled by the bad guys, still utterly assured they'll save the day somehow.

Professor Elliot Phenomenus

Portrayed by: Jack Banning
Voiced by: Gabriel Chavez (Latin American Spanish), Katsuhiro Kitagawa (Japanese)
A scientist who specializes in alien searching, and Bulk and Skull's new boss.
  • All There in the Script: The scripts say that his first name is "Elliott".
  • Catchphrase: He sees what he thinks is evidence of aliens. Bulk or Skull point out that it's something mundane. He replies, "Perhaps to the untrained eye!"
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Sees aliens everywhere, despite a lack of evidence, and never manages to find them. Quite an accomplishment, given how hard it is to go for a walk in Angel Grove without tripping over alien activity. He manages to make Bulk and Skull look like the normal ones in comparison.
  • The Cuckoolander Was Right: He's consistently too late by about an episode or so in terms of locating alien activity, but it was there.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: Until the final episode, he wasn't aware of who the Space Rangers were.

Justin Stewart/Blue Turbo Ranger

Portrayed by Blake Foster

The former Blue Turbo Ranger, Justin opted not to join his teammates in their journey to find Zordon, instead deciding to with his dad. However, when his friends were captured, he reunited with Storm Blaster and with a spare morpher, became the Blue Ranger once again.

Note: This section only applies to tropes featured in In Space. For the rest, see the character sheet for Power Rangers Turbo.

  • Big Damn Heroes: He and Storm Blaster drive through the door of a warehouse to free the Rangers, who are seconds from eating the business end of Lionizer's cannon.
  • Re-Power: Thanks to a spare morpher provided by Storm Blaster, Justin was able to morph for one more battle.

Adam Park/ Mighty Morphin Black Ranger

Portrayed by Johnny Yong Bosch

The former Mighty Morphin Black Ranger, Zeo Ranger IV Green, and Green Turbo Ranger before entrusting the powers to Carlos. Adam returned to coach Carlos after the latter's confidence was shaken, only to use his damaged Power Morpher to become the Black Ranger once again.

Note: This section is only for tropes introduced in In Space. For the rest, see the character sheets for MMPR, Zeo and Turbo.

  • The Bus Came Back: This is Adam's first return since stepping down in the middle of Turbo.
  • Foreshadowing: The fact that Adam could morph with a damaged Power Coin means that the old powers, despite being damaged or destroyed, could indeed be repaired for future crossovers.
  • The Mentor: Serves this to Carlos in Always A Chance.
  • Wrecked Weapon: He still carries his damaged Power Morpher with the original Mastadon Power Coin, and Alpha warned him that using it would severely hurt him. This is proven true as Adam was in pain by the powers fluctuating on and off.

     The United Alliance of Evil 

Dark Specter

Voiced by: T.J. Rotolo (First voice), Cristopher Cho (Second voice), Alfonso Mellado (Latin American Spanish), Yuji Kishi (Japanese)

The Grand Monarch of Evil and the leader of the United Alliance of Evil. He was responsible for capturing Zordon.

  • Adaptational Badass: He's based on (though uses a different costume than) King Javious from Megaranger, who in addition to being Orcus on His Throne was The Man Behind the Curtain as well and was predictably killed off by his subordinates at the first opportunity. Specter still doesn't do much, but he's got the firepower and stamina to back up his Galactic Conqueror cred. Additionally, whereas the Neziranger plot killed Javious off in the Sentai, he survived the Psycho Ranger plot here (though he still got offed in the end).
  • Asshole Victim: He is the last of Darkondra's ambition-driven backstabs before being killed by him. But he is also responsible for the conflicts and evil of this season and the seasons before it, in addition to ruling the universe and using a planet-killer asteroid on the Earth, leaving little sympathy towards his death. He at least makes Darkondra into one as well by taking him down with him.
  • Colony Drop: One of the few times he acts directly? Throwing a planet killer asteroid at the Earth. He nearly wins. Orcus on His Throne he may be, but when he actually tries, he definitely makes one.
  • Dimension Lord: Of our dimension.
  • The Dreaded: Merely invoking his name is a good way to get other villains, including Rita and Zedd, to shut up and do as they're told.
  • Evil Is Bigger: The largest villain in the whole Zordon era, if not the entire franchisenote .
  • Expy: A Composite Character of not 2, not 3, but 4 Sentai villains.
    • His connections to the Psycho Rangers make him the direct counterpart to Evil Electro-King Javious I.
    • His desire to unify the galaxy under his control makes him the closest thing Power Rangers will ever have to Star King Bazoo.
    • As the ultimate evil of all the other villains, he's the real adaptation of Dai-Satan, as opposed to Lokar (who used the footage, but was Demoted to Extra).
    • Lastly, his size, as well as his death being at the hands of another villain, make him one of Emperor Exhaus (like Lokar, Exhaus's costume was used for a different villain - Goldgoyle - with a different role).
  • Famous Last Words: "Darkonda!! TRAITOR!"
  • Galactic Conqueror: As near as we can tell, between his own conquests and his semi-independent minions, he's conquered the universe aside from Earth, Triforia, Aquitar, and maybe Edenoi (and possibly Mirinoi).
  • Generic Doomsday Villain: Because he's the Greater-Scope Villain instead of the Big Bad he has less screen time and development than other villains. He's basically this uber-villain in the background.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: He's the true leader of every villain in this season and all the past ones, but the Rangers' primary antagonist is Astronema. Even when they do meet him, they never directly confront him.
  • Large and in Charge: This guy makes the Dark Fortress look puny by comparison.
  • The Man Behind the Man: For Astronema, Rita, Zedd, Mondo, and Divatox. All of them were working for him.
  • Offstage Villainy: Has apparently conquered most of the universe offscreen.
  • Orcus on His Throne: Given that he's made using an expensive Power Rangers invented costume, he takes very little action against the Rangers himself. The few times he does, however, show he's not to be trifled with, such as chucking a planet-killer asteroid at Earth.
  • Remember the New Guy?: The supposed leader of all the villains seen in all the previous series, and before the finale of Turbo, he was NEVER mentioned.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: To Evil King Javious in Megaranger, he basically plays the same role, despite looking nothing like him. However, he's also much stronger than him.
  • Taking You with Me: After being mortally wounded by Darkonda, he manages to survive just long enough to swallow Darkonda whole.
  • There Is No Kill Like Overkill:
    • The one time he tries to destroy the Rangers himself? He chucks a planet-killer asteroid at the Earth. The guy doesn't pull his punches when he decides he wants someone dead.
    • Takes two Planet Killer missiles, one hitting him directly in the head, to kill him. Even then, he manages to take down his killer with him.
  • Tron Lines: The red lines on his body appear to be these since when his energy is drained during the Psycho Ranger arc, they start turning dark blue.
  • The Unfought: Is never fought by the heroes, despite being the Big Bad. Instead, it's Darkonda that takes him out. With two planet buster missiles. Interestingly, early drafts of Forever Red subverted this, as he would've been resurrected and fought by the 10 Red Rangers instead, but this was scrapped.

Astronema / Karone
Human Form
Cyborg Form

Portrayed by: Melody Perkins
Voiced by: Carola Vázquez (Latin American Spanish), Ai Orikasa (Japanese)

Note: See also the character sheet for Power Rangers Lost Galaxy.

That...was impressive. Destroy them!

The Princess of Darkness, Astronema was Dark Specter's most loyal servant and was sent to stop the Space Rangers from finding Zordon through any means necessary.

Her real identity is Karone, Andros' sister, who was kidnapped by Darkonda at a young age, and raised to be evil by Ecliptor

  • '80s Hair: Her wigs can get voluminous.
  • Adaptational Heroism: Shibolena is just an android with an Undying Loyalty to Dr. Hinelar in Megaranger. Here, she's a Brainwashed and Crazy Big Bad.
  • And I Must Scream: The gist of what the cybernetics do to her. Her actual persona is suppressed, in favor of the programming of the cybernetics.
  • Bad Boss: She heaps a ton of abuse on Elgar. Of course, Elgar really deserves it. However, she can be nasty to everyone else around her, too. Even Ecliptor isn't necessarily safe. However, compared to people like Grimlord, she's a Benevolent Boss by comparison.
  • The Baroness: Sexpot variety. After her brainwashing, she becomes the Rosa Klebb variety.
  • Berserk Button: She's very specific about that necklace she wears.
  • Big Bad: The Rangers' primary enemy of the season.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: For the second half of the series by Dark Specter.
  • The Chessmaster: Her plans to eliminate Dark Specter are quite well thought out.
  • Color Motif: Black, red, and silver.
  • Combat Stilettos: Her early outfits tend to include some large heels.
  • Composite Character: Of Dr. Hinelar and Shibolena.
  • Creepy Monotone: Once brainwashed and fitted with cybernetics.
  • Dark Magical Girl: Looks like a Dark Action Girl at first, but...
  • Dating Catwoman: With Zhane in "A Date with Danger". It's short because he failed to show up for their date on time due to an attack by a Monster of the Week, which Astronema didn't send so she didn't believe his reasons for being late.
  • Detective Mole / Hired to Hunt Yourself: Dark Specter puts her in charge of finding out who's draining his power when the ones doing it are The Psycho Rangers, who she created specifically to drain Dark Specter's power.
  • Disney Death: In the finale.
  • The Dragon: To Dark Specter, but she's really...
  • Dragon-in-Chief: Since Dark Specter never does anything, she's the main threat in the series.
  • Dressed All in Rubber: Her earlier outfits.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: She cares for Ecliptor, and despite her rough attitude towards her minions, she's never outright cruel to them. Also, she saves a mother and her son from one of her own Quantrons. In fact, she was the closest thing the series had to an Anti-Villain Big Bad for a long time.
  • Evil Redhead: After she's brainwashed.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: Several times, to the point where one of the Rangers remarked "I liked you better as a blonde." Though, to be fair, most of her hairstyle changes were non-expository and not for any reason.
  • Gone Horribly Right: After her Heel–Face Turn, Dark Specter succeeds in kidnapping her and brainwashes her to be a completely evil being. Completely evil also seems to mean ambitious to the point of planning to destroy Dark Specter.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: As Astronema, of course.
  • Heel–Face Turn: This happens when she finds out Andros is her brother. She then gets captured by Dark Specter and made evil again via brainwashing and Unwilling Roboticisation. The finale is not an example of this because the brainwashing was removed.
    • High-Heel–Face Turn: The sole female villain introduced in the series, and she is the one who turns good.
  • Hell-Bent for Leather: Her later outfit.
  • Human Aliens: She's also from KO-35.
  • Kaleidoscope Hair: While her purple hair is better-remembered, she also likes donning other hairstyles/colors. Once she gets brainwashed, she never does this anymore and keeps her red bob until the end.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Before her Heel–Face Turn (and subsequent capture followed by brainwashing), she was a little flirtatious and mostly campy. Also, just like many Zordon-era's Power Rangers villains, she miserably failed in getting rid of the Power Rangers. When she returned to the service of Dark Specter in her brainwashed form, she drops most (not all) of her Large Ham antics and became a more threatening figure to Power Rangers, demonstrated via her plans with the Psycho Rangers and the increasingly dangerous Monster of the Week.
  • Large Ham: Jeminy Christmas...
    • Evil Is Hammy: Mostly keeps it in check after her Heel–Face Turn. When she's brainwashed into being evil again, she goes right back to being a ham.
    • Cold Ham: After her brainwashing, instead of the typical shouting, she's more eerily calm.
  • Long-Lost Relative: She is Andros' long-lost sister. Though neither of them finds out until mid-season.
  • Makeup Is Evil: Played with a bit. One of the first things she does after her Heel–Face Turn is ditching her wig(s) and most of her makeup. The rangers certainly think it's an improvement.
  • Memento MacGuffin: Her locket.
  • Make My Monster Grow: When a monster nears defeat, she calls out "Fire the Sattilasers!" and somebody does so.
  • Ms. Fanservice: For starters she's gorgeous, she has a leather outfit, is equal parts flirty and intimidating, often does a Sexy Walk and she's The Baroness.
  • Not Me This Time: When the Rangers accuse her of helping capture Zordon, she replies that she wasn't one of the villains who took part in that venture.
  • Only One Name: Either her villainess name or her true name, it's only one name.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: She attempts to disguise herself as Ashley in one episode, and while she does have the voice down, she doesn't do anything to change her mannerisms at all, and when her minions "attack" her and Cassie, all Astronema does is glower and slap at them.
  • Related in the Adaptation: In 'Megaranger'', Kenta/MegaRed is not related to either Dr. Hinlear or Shibolena, Karone's counterparts. And as Karone eventually becomes the second Pink Ranger of the succeeding team, this also extends to Saya/GingaPink.
  • Sci-Fi Bob Haircut: During her attempted infiltration of the Dark Fortress, she ditches her larges wigs for one of these, which remains her haircut for the rest of the series.
  • Senseless Sacrifice: After her Heel–Face Turn, Dark Specter threatens to destroy Earth's population with a giant asteroid unless the Rangers turn her over. She risks attempting to infiltrate his ship to stop him and gets captured (and subsequently brainwashed). Not only does Dark Specter not bother to stop the asteroid after getting her back, but the Rangers manage to do so themselves, making her whole infiltration attempt completely unnecessary.
  • Shock and Awe: She can shoot purple lightning from her fingers.
  • Shoulders of Doom: When going in battle, she tends to don some large shoulder-pads.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: In one episode, Astronema calls her Quantrons nincompoops.
  • The Starscream: After being brainwashed by Dark Specter to be pure evil (clearly, that worked only too well). Using the Psycho Rangers had two purposes: fighting the true Rangers (obviously) and weakening Dark Specter. She intentionally connected their powers to his, hoping that their frequent battles with the Rangers would weaken him enough for her to destroy him and usurp his position as leader of the alliance. Unfortunately for Astronema, the Psycho Rangers were impatient and unwilling to follow her plans, which led to them being defeated before this plan could succeed.
  • Spiritual Antithesis: Being related to the Red Ranger and a brainwashed main villainess of the series, she literally a Power Rangers version of Rei/Maria from Choujin Sentai Jetman. And her relationship with Ecliptor, if Rei/Maria and Gray had a foster father-daughter bond instead of lovers.
  • Unwilling Roboticisation: After her Heel–Face Turn, Darkonda recaptures her and has cybernetic-implants forcefully grafted onto her, to erase all traces of goodness. It works a little too well.
  • Woman Scorned: Zhane learns never to stand up a woman who can shoot lightning at you, whether intentionally or not.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: And purple, and blonde, and black, and brown, and red...


Voiced by: Lex Lang, Armando Réndiz (Latin American Spanish), Katsuhiro Kitagawa (Japanese)

Astronema's second-in-command and the Princess' father figure. He is also one of the most lethal fighters in the known universe and the veteran of countless battles.

  • Anti-Villain: Noble Demon type.
  • Arch-Enemy: To Andros.
  • Badass Cape: At first. It's soon discarded.
  • Battle Butler: For Astronema
  • Berserk Button: Anything to do with Darkonda.
  • Cool Sword: His main weapon.
  • Darth Vader Clone: Sword-wielding dark-colored servant of a greater villain? Check. Uses a cape (at least at first)? Check. Is at least partially cybernetic? Check. Has hidden depths that shows that he cares for a character who is either his child or (in this case) as a child to him? Check.
  • Death Is Cheap: Several of his early fights tend to end with Ecliptor apparently being killed, and yet he always returns soon enough with no explanation (since in Megaranger his counterpart was a robot and could just be rebuilt when destroyed).
  • Dies Differently in Adaptation: Of the "dies later" variant. His Megaranger counterpart died after he entered his temporary red mode, being destroyed by Kenta, while Ecliptor survived the fight and died at the end of the season due to the Z-Wave.
  • Diabolus ex Nihilo: His first appearance doesn't establish him as having any allegiance to Astronema; he just randomly appears to attack Andros. Later episodes do expand on his character, though.
  • The Dragon: To Astronema.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Loves Astronema as though she were his own daughter.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: An untrustworthy psychopath like Darkonda is not someone he wants anything to do with.
  • Evil Laugh: Constantly!
  • Evil vs. Evil: He and Darkonda eventually start trying to kill one another, up until Darkonda forcibly reprograms him.
  • Evil Virtues: Loyalty for Astronema.
  • Eye Beams: In varieties, too!
  • Final Boss: After Astronema is defeated, Ecliptor becomes the last villain to fight.
  • Fusion Dance: With Darkonda as Darkliptor in "T.J.'s Identity Crisis" and "Astronema Thinks Twice". It's entirely unwilling on his part, and he can override it with enough discipline.
  • Light Is Not Good: Most of his powers seem to be based around holo-projection and concentrated light blasts.
  • Noble Demon: Starts the trend that continues with Villamax, Diabolico, Zen-Aku and Deker
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: Comes to the rescue of Astronema when she is making a Heel–Face Turn. As a result, Dark Specter has Darkonda turn him into a cyborg to prevent any future disobedience.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Whenever Andros is part of the equation.
  • Papa Wolf: Raised Astronema from age five and he seems to be the only one she always seems to care about (usually, at any rate).
  • Power Echoes
  • Tron Lines: His body is covered in them.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Astronema. Even when she decides to betray Dark Specter.
  • Unwilling Roboticisation: Darkonda has him rebuilt into a cyborg after he refuses to stop Karone from joining the Rangers.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Upon seeing Astronema's corpse in "Countdown To Destruction"

A ruthless and violent bounty hunter under the United Alliance of Evil's rule. He was also responsible for kidnapping Karone at a young age, turning her into Astronema.

Five evil copies of the Power Rangers that were created by Astronema. Not only were they created to destroy their counterparts, but their main unknown goal was to drain Dark Specter's powers.

Voiced by: Patrick David (Psycho Red)/Michael Maize (Psycho Black)/Wally Wingert (Psycho Blue)/Kamera Walton (Psycho Yellow)/Vicki Davis (Psycho Pink)

"We're the Psycho Rangers" (Red). "We're faster than you" (Black). "Smarter than you (Blue). "Stronger than you" (Yellow). "But we're evil" (Pink)!

  • Ax-Crazy: All five of them, but Psycho Blue not only fights with an actual axe, he nearly kills T.J. in cold blood doing it.
  • Back from the Dead: They ran their souls through Astronema's people-into-data machine, reconstituting their bodies.
  • Badass Crew: They are much stronger than the Power Rangers, with even individual members posing a danger to the entire team. They would have succeeded in killing them if Astronema hadn't been holding them back or if they weren't prone to infighting. The rare moments where all five avoid fighting each other they are all but unstoppable.
  • Breakout Villain: They're among the franchise's most popular villains. Their well-received appearances allowed them to survive in Lost Galaxy and it became a near common trend for each to introduce evil copies to fight the Power Rangers.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: When they introduce themselves, Psycho Pink finishes off their onslaught of Pre-Asskicking One Liners by simply announcing the fact that the Psychos are evil. Adding more to this scene is the fact that, unlike the previous villains announcing themselves as evil, it's truly menacing here.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: Psycho Yellow. Not only does she team up with Psycho Pink to drain the Rangers of their power first (and get all the credit from Astronema), she then callously abandons Pink when things go all pear-shaped, resulting in Pink's death.
  • Crippling Overspecialization: The Rangers realize that the Psychos only absorbed fighting styles from their counterparts, so an Opponent Switch gives them a huge advantage... at first. And when the Psychos nullified the Opponent Switch, the Rangers (minus Zhane) decided to wear the same color. (blue)
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: When they brag about how much better they are than the Rangers, it's true, especially in the early appearances. Psycho Red has it the worst, though.
  • Diabolus ex Nihilo: Unlike their Megaranger counterparts, there's no explanation of where they came from. Psycho Yellow's monster form appearing earlier at a Bad-Guy Bar implies they might be aliens empowered by Astronema, but this is never confirmed.
  • Dwindling Party: Pink and Blue are killed off individually, leaving only the three remaining ones for the final confrontation. This significantly weakens them, as with only three left the Rangers can overpower them two on one.
  • Elemental Powers: In their monster forms, they each have elemental powers.
  • Fatal Flaw: Their obsession with their respective Ranger, impatience, and inability to work together is ultimately what spells their end.
  • Ghostly Chill: When the ghost of Psycho Pink passes through her, Cassie suddenly feels very cold.
  • Gone Horribly Right: Astronema wanted to create monsters that would hunt down and destroy the Power Rangers. Unfortunately for her Evil Plan, nothing can stop them from trying to do it.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Psycho Pink, mostly because Psycho Yellow keeps trying to screw her over. The others also have elements of this when they think one of the other is trying to get all the credit.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Red, Yellow, and Black are finally killed when the Mega Voyager, Astro Delta Megazord, and Mega Winger absorb their Combined Energy Attack and send it right back at them along with their own Combined Energy Attack.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Zhane has been abducted, but the others can't save him without morphing and alerting the Psychos to their location. So, they plant a recording device in their vehicle and send it off on auto-pilot. When the Rangers break through the shield surrounding Zhane's location, the Psychos Flash Step in front of them, and Red says something to the effect of "Did you think that would fool us?" Of course, they really did fall for it.
  • I Lied: Psycho Yellow says this to Psycho Pink after she kidnaps Ashley, even though she promised her that it would be Cassie they would take.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Psycho Yellow. Of all the Psycho Rangers, she is the one who is most likely to hang back and let the others do the heavy lifting and then swoop in at the end to take the glory for herself.
  • Mind Rape: The Psychos learn everything about the Rangers' fighting styles in this way.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!:
    • Beyond that, Psycho Red once delivered a Curb-Stomp Battle to the Rangers and might have beaten them, but then Psycho Black intervened accusing him of wanting all the credit for beating the Rangers to himself.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: Not that any of them were actually harmless, per se, but Psycho Pink was killed off early in their debut story arc (mostly because Psycho Yellow stabbed her in the back). When the Psychos returned for the Galaxy Rangers team up, not only did she SURVIVE their team attack but was able to procure an energy-sucking sword that ended up killing the Pink Galaxy Ranger. Until the end of the season, at least.
  • One-Winged Angel: They don't have mecha, so they turn into giant monsters instead.
  • The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: So much that they lurked around as ghosts so that they could fight the Rangers again. Deconstructed, as this attribute is their Fatal Flaw and ultimately directly contributes to their downfall and demise.
  • Only Sane Man: Psycho Black, though "sane" is a relative term. He was the only one that expressed concern over the consequences of not doing as Astronema commanded, and the only one who seemed to realize their The Only One Allowed to Defeat You tendencies might screw them over in the end.
  • Shock and Awe: Green lightning. One might even call them Psycho Electros.
  • Super Speed: Bordering on Flash Step in close quarters.
  • Weapon of Choice: The same as the Rangers, of course (except for Psycho Pink, whose bow was nothing like Cassie's Satellite Stunner:)
  • Villainous Breakdown: Most of them have one except Black, but Psycho Red has the biggest one, due to his The Only One Allowed to Defeat You mentality.
  • We ARE Struggling Together: They all want to kill the Power Rangers, but are so obsessed that they are prone to fighting each other over which of them gets to do it.
  • Xanatos Gambit: Astronema linked the Psycho Rangers' energy into Dark Specter so that as long as they exist, they drain his energy. Whether the Rangers or Dark Specter died first, she won.


Astronema's robotic foot soldiers.
  • Canon Foreigner: They are original Power Ranger foot soldiers. The Megaranger foot soldiers' counterpart, the Craterites, only appear in one episode including their Fusion Dance form.
  • Double Weapon: They wield Q-Blades.
  • Space Fighter: They have their own space ships called the Velocifighters.

     The Monsters 


  • Adapted Out:
    • Rose Nezire, Mole Nezire, Porcupine Nezire, Canary Nezire, and Illusion Nezire were never adapted from Megaranger.
    • Bibidebi is the only main antagonist from Megaranger not to be adapted or given a counterpart, like Shibolena with Astronema. That being said, he did appear in toy form with a Craterite figure under the name Hyprus.
  • Adaptation Species Change: Megaranger's Nezire Beasts were mutants created by combining animal DNA with evil energy. Astronema's monsters are simply alien soldiers.
  • Demoted to Extra: Pig Nezire (Chef Swinegang Pork) and Mushroom Nezire (Magic Mushroom) only appeared in crowd shots.

Manta Menace

A stingray monster that the rangers used for the Simudeck.
  • Demoted to Extra: Out of all the monsters used from Megaranger, Manta Menace gets hit the hardest as he was only used for training purposes.
  • The Voiceless: In the two episodes he was seen, he never spoke.


Voiced by: Blake Torney
A monster sent down to drain Angel Grove's power.


Voiced by: Kim Strauss
A giant shrimp monster.
  • Adaptation Explanation Extrication: His Megaranger counterpart was immune to Galaxy Mega's sword, which is why they just beat the hell out of him and threw him into a volcano.
  • The Bus Came Back: One of the monsters that returned in The Great Evilyzer.
  • Kill It with Fire: His final fate as the Rangers tossed him into a volcano.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: On the receiving end against the Rangers, possibly as payback for trying to eat them.
  • Power Pincers: Being a shrimp monster, he has these. With them, Clawhammer can create energy boomerangs.
  • To Serve Man: Was sent down to eat the Rangers who were chained up.

Voltage Hog

Voiced by: Kirk Thornton
A monster sent down to drain Angel Grove's power plants.


Voiced by: Michael Sorich
An elephant monster that was sent to knock off buildings in an attempt to knock over Professor Phenomenus's plutonium fuel that was in a lab.


An army of robotic foot soldiers that the Rangers use for the Simudeck. A lightning storm hit the Astro Megaship, turning the holographic enemies into physical beings. There was also a Craterite Leader, and they could combine into a Craterite Conglomerie.
  • Attack Its Weak Point: The rangers were able to destroy the giant Craterite Conglomerie by shooting the Astro Megazord's blaster at the Craterite Leader at its chest.
  • Demoted to Extra: The Craterites were the main foot soldiers in Megaranger, but they were replaced by the sleeker Quartrons as Astromema's foot soldiers.
  • Fusion Dance: A mass of Craterites could merge with the Craterite Leader to form the giant-sized Craterite Conglomerie.
  • Knife Nut: What a regular Craterite would wield.
  • Playing with Fire: The Craterite Leader can shoot fireballs from his hands.
  • The Unintelligible: They only speak in beeps and mourns.
  • A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing: A group of them took on the appearance of citizens of Angel Grove.
  • Wolverine Claws: The Craterite Conglomerie has them for hands.


Voiced by: Ken Merckx
A kind-hearted wasp monster and brother to Sting King.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: He's naive and kind-hearted but can stand up to his evil brother's attacks, after saving Cassie.
  • Laughably Evil: Due to not actually being evil, resulting in his attempts being laughable.
  • Token Good Teammate: Out of all the monsters, he is the most kind-hearted monster of them all.

Sting King

A hornet monster and brother to Waspicable.

A crocodile monster.


Voiced by: Mike Reynolds
An illusion casting centipede monster.
  • Master of Illusion: Can create illusions of five monsters; two that the Rangers fought against before (Clawhammer and Sting King), and three that the Rangers did not (see below).

Power Driller

Voiced by: Kirk Thornton
A rhinoceros-like drill monster summoned by Destructipede.
  • Demoted to Extra: Rhino Nezire had an entire episode to himself while Power Driller only appeared as part of Destructipede's power. This was because he was seen attacking Japanese citizens in the open, making all of his footage unusable.
  • Flat Character: Only appears as part of Destructipede's power.
  • This Is a Drill: Sports one on his horn.


Voiced by: Ezra Weisz
A toad monster summoned by Destructipede.
  • Demoted to Extra: Toad Nezire had an entire episode to himself while Fearog only appeared as part of Destructipede's power. This was because his Sentai counterpart was seen as an egg for most of the episode.
  • Flat Character: Only appears as part of Destructipede's power.


Voiced by: Richard Cansino
A moth monster summoned by Destructipede.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: Wields a stinger on his left arm.
  • Demoted to Extra: Poison Moth Nezire had an entire episode to himself while Behemoth only appeared as part of Destructipede's power. This was because he was seen infecting people with poison in the sentai, making his footage unusable.
  • Flat Character: Only appears as part of Destructipede's power.


Voiced by: Jackie Marchand
A termite monster sent to wake up her children on Earth.
  • Dies Differently in Adaptation: In Megaranger, she was destroyed by a team attack that involved the Silver Ranger, and not the Yellow Ranger. Because Zhane wasn't planned on appearing until the second half of In Space, she was instead destroyed by the Spiral Saber Booster Mode and Quadroblaster combo.
  • This Is a Drill: Sports small variants on her hands.


Voiced by: Dave Mallow
A termite monster, and the son of Mamamite.
  • Decomposite Character: He and his mother were technically the same character in Megaranger, under the Termite Nezire family.

Barillian Bug

Voiced by: Kim Strauss
A scorpion-themed monster that can turn their victims into Barillian Bugs themselves.
  • Viral Transformation: One sting from them can cause their victims to turn into Barillian Bugs themselves. This happened to Carlos and Cassie, but thankfully, Andros and T.J. found an antidote.


Voiced by: Brett Walkow
A squid-themed monster that grew from Darkonda's mutated body.


Voiced by: Ken Merckx
A robotic lion monster sent to recapture the escaping Storm Blaster.
  • BFG: Wields a bazooka as his primary weapon.

Body Switcher

Voiced by: Ken Merckx
A bat/grim reaper monster with the ability to change both himself and others into other people.


A red-statue-like monster that fought Andros and Zhane in KO-35 two years before the beginning of the season.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: He only appeared in a flashback, but he's the reason Zhane was in cryostasis for two years.


Voiced by: Bob Papenbrook
An antlion monster that hatched from some eggs the Rangers were studying on Kadix.
  • Adaptational Nationality: In Megaranger, he was under the Nezire Beast used by the main antagonists of that Sentai. In Power Rangers, he's a random monster that attacked the Rangers and was not under Astronema's leadership.
  • Dig Attack: Showed this ability during the Megazord fight. It would have sunk the Astro Megazord had Andros not called the Delta Megazord.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: If he didn't attack the Astro Megaship, then Zhane wouldn't have awoken, and the Rangers would be without a Sixth Ranger.
  • The Unintelligible: Only speaks in an unidentifiable alien language.


Voiced by: Michael Sorich
A pair of eel monsters Darkonda sent to spread their toxins across the Earth.
  • Bash Brothers: Two monsters that were sent to spread their toxins on Earth as well as fight the rangers.
  • Colour-Coded for Your Convenience: The two are colored differently with one colored red, and the other colored blue.
  • Non-Indicative Name: With a name like Crocotox, it would be easy to assume the characters are crocodiles like the Crocoviles. But their heads, spreading toxins, and eggs look more similar to eels.

Praying Mantis

Voiced by: Dave Mallow
A robotic mantis monster sent to take advantage of Zhane's morphing time limit.
  • Near-Villain Victory: Had Zhane not figure out a way to recharge his morpher, then Praying Mantis would have been the first monster to kill a Power Ranger.
  • Sinister Scythe: Like Body Switcher above, he wields one as his main weapon.


Voiced by: Ezra Weisz
A wild monster.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: It's unknown what happened to him after Zhane rescued Astronema from him attacking her. However, there's a good chance either her, the rangers, or Ecliptor destroyed him after said incident.
  • Wolverine Claws: Has big red claws.

Horror Bulls

Voiced by: Brad Orchard (both)
A set of bison monsters. The first one was sent to copy the Ranger's weapons and abilities, with the second one being implemented with countermeasures.
  • No-Sell: The second Horror Bull just walked through the Rangers weapons thanks to the data collected from the first one.
  • Ramming Always Works: The second Horror Bull showcased this during the Megazord fight.
  • The Worf Effect: Justified in this case. The second Horror Bull was easily defeated by Zhane as his weapon was not scanned by the first one.


Voiced by: Tadahiro Nakamura
A coral monster Darkonda sent against the KO-35 rebels.


Voiced by: Ezra Weisz
An electronic chameleon monster.
  • Adaptational Late Appearance: Lizwizard's Megaranger counterpart was one of the earlier monsters the Rangers faced off against. Here, he debuts well around the second half of the season.
  • Dirty Coward: Whenever he grabs someone with his tongue and somebody tries to attack him, he switches places with whoever he's holding. Once Adam was able to beat him down, he quickly high-tails it out of there.
  • Teleportation: He can swap places with somebody after grabbing them with his tongue so he can get their teammates to attack them by accident. However, it only worked once as Carlos, thanks to some training from Adam, managed to get the trick down the second time.


Voiced by: Richard Cansino
A sonic bat monster.
  • Adapted Out: His Megaranger counterpart had an upgraded form that was left unused in Power Rangers.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: He needs to change frequencies after his sonic blasts, which the Rangers took advantage of during the Megazord battle.
  • Sensory Overload: His main attack.


Voiced by: Bob Papenbrook
A spike-plant-like monster Astronema sent to prove her loyalty to Dark Specter.


Voiced by: Tony Oliver
A condor monster.
  • Flight: Naturally given his bird-like theme. He gave the Mega Voyager trouble as the Rangers couldn't attack him while he was flying around, at least until Zhane arrived with the Mega Winger.


Voiced by: Brad Orchard
A robotic owl monster.
  • Demoted to Extra: Hoothead had his own episode in Megaranger. Here, his entire fight footage was used as the cold opening for the episode that began the Psycho Ranger arc.
  • Flat Character: There's no explanation on where he came from, or why he was sent to Angel Grove. Made worse by the fact that he fought against the Rangers in the cold opening of the episode where the Psycho Ranger arc began.
  • Shock and Awe: Has this ability.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Was destroyed before the Theme Tune even started!
