    Our Heroes 

Casey Rhodes / Jungle Fury Red Ranger | (Actor: Jason Smith)

My spirit doesn't make me stronger. I make my spirit stronger.

Casey was a cub at the Pai Zhua Academy, but after defending a peer from Jared's bullying, Master Mao named him one of the three chosen warriors to protect the world against Dai Shi. Despite his inexperience compared to Theo and Lily, he was named the Red Jungle Fury Ranger due to his tiger spirit.

  • Adaptational Intelligence: Jan is a Wild Child with grammar problems and was Raised by Tigers in Gekiranger.
  • Badass Boast: See the above quote.
  • Classical Anti-Hero: While out-going and friendly, Casey struggles with a lack of confidence and constantly judging himself due to being the least experienced of the team.
  • It's All My Fault: Deep down, he blames himself for Jarrod's fall and all the Ranger battles because it was the fight they had in the first episode that kickstarted the chain of events that led to Dai Shi being released.
  • Law of Chromatic Superiority: Averted - despite getting a Cool Bike only for himself, he's the first Red Ranger in since In Space (For those not keeping track, that was ten seasons prior) to not get a Super Mode (Unless you count the armor he wears whilst riding said bike). He gains a second master last and earns his Master stripes later than Lily and Theo.
  • Lightning Bruiser: It comes with being Jan's counterpart.
  • The McCoy: Being the least experienced of the team, he's constantly worrying about not being able to catch up. This makes him very impulsive and worries when something goes wrong.
  • Panthera Awesome: Possesses the Tiger spirit.
  • Rookie Red Ranger: Possibly a deconstruction, as he constantly worries about not being able to catch up to Theo and Lily. This, not lack of ability is what holds him back until he learns to let got of it.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In the finale, he takes down a crowd of Mooks. While unmorphed. And proceeds to go one-on-one with the Big Bad without dying horribly. Throughout the season in general, Casey becomes more sure of himself and, as a result, more powerful.
  • Warrior Therapist: How he breaks Jarrod free of Dai Shi in the finale. It works.
  • Weapon of Choice:
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: He comes to believe that Dai Shi hasn't completely overwhelmed Jarrod and that there's still some goodness in there. He and Jarrod never once got along, but he still believes in trying to save someone who wasn't always bad. The others think he's deluding himself; Master Mao even suggests it's Casey's own guilt driving this belief and that he'll get himself hurt trying. In the penultimate episode, Casey is ultimately proven right, if getting some bruises along the way.

Lily Chilman / Jungle Fury Yellow Ranger | (Actress: Anna Hutchison)

I'm the Ranger you're gonna wish you'd never met!

Lily was a student at the Pai Zhua Academy, and was named one of the three chosen warriors to protect the world against Dai Shi by Master Mao. She was named the Yellow Jungle Fury Ranger due to her cheetah spirit.

Theo Martin / Jungle Fury Blue Ranger | (Actor: Aljin Abella)

My mind is a well-oiled machine. It can juggle two jobs, read a book and save the world - all before the lunch rush.

Theo was a student at the Pai Zhua Academy, and was named one of the three chosen warriors to protect the world against Dai Shi by Master Mao. He was named the Blue Jungle Fury Ranger due to his jaguar spirit.

  • Ascended Fanboy: "No way! Ever since I was a little kid, I always wanted to be a — if that's what it takes."
  • Extracurricular Enthusiast: While becoming a power ranger did limit his activity much more, in his youth, he did many, many different things, with extreme discipline.
  • Jerkass: Though a heart of gold tended to show up when it counted.
  • The Lancer: For Casey.
  • The Napoleon: Shorter even than his own love interest and anyone else in the series, with a massive ego and pushing himself as the best of the bunch. In fact, it kind of screws around the show a bit, because when he morphs he's around the same height as the other Rangers. Not that that hasn't happened with shorter Rangers before.
  • Neat Freak: Upon arriving in R.J's loft one of the first things he points out is that it needs cleaning.
  • Panthera Awesome: Jaguar
  • Polar Opposite Twins: Has a twin brother named Luan, who is fun-loving, adventurous and nowhere near as egotistical as Theo. They're even played by the same actor.
  • Promoted to Love Interest: Lily and Theo eventually get together, whereas Retsu and Ran didn't become a couple in Gekiranger.

Robert "R.J." James / Jungle Fury Wolf Ranger | (Actor: David de Lautour)

Remember, guys! The enemy is merciless. And just as graceful as - (falls over, springs back up) Me!
R.J. was a Pai Zhua Master with the spirit of the wolf, and ran his own pizza place called Jungle Karma Pizza. After Master Mao died, the three Rangers came to him to be their new mentor and he provided the trio with their powers, a place to live, and jobs at his restaurant. Eventually, he joined his students as the Wolf Ranger.
  • Berserk Button: Never sit on his couch.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Constantly underestimated because of his laid-back, somewhat hippie-ish behavior, but he is a master on par with any other in the series, including his own father and Master Mao.
  • Bare-Fisted Monk: Aside from shooting Ki Manipulation from his morpher, he is the only Jungle Fury Ranger who does not possess a secondary weapon.
  • Big Eater: Especially when it comes to pizza.
  • The Big Guy: His fighting style is almost entirely hand-to-hand, and he's one of the most experienced fighters.
  • Composite Character: of Gekiranger's Gou (Geki Violet) and Sha-Fu, even though the latter's counterpart is Master Mao - but since Mao dies in the first episode many of Sha-Fu's early stuff gets shifted to R.J.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: A pizza-loving hippie who's also a martial arts master and superhero.
  • Eccentric Mentor: You can't even tell he's a martial arts master until he revealed it in his introduction.
  • Erudite Stoner
    "I always like to leave my enemies with a... confusing thought."
    "Theo, I'm ignoring your negative energy."
  • Friend in the Black Market: Downplayed. It's not explicitly this trope due to being a kid's show, but RJ certainly used some connections he had to acquire Ranger tech.
  • Genius Bruiser: Being the most experience in combat and the one who invents most of their tech.
  • Genre Savvy: Unlike the other Pai Zhua masters, RJ knew what kind of world they lived in, and knew merely being super skilled wouldn't be enough against something like Dai Shi, so he adapted and acquired Ranger tech to even the odds against such an ancient evil.
  • Ice-Cream Koan: Does those on purpose to his enemies to "leave them with a confusing thought".
    Dai Shi: Consider this a draw, but hear me Wolf Master, tomorrow is another day.
    RJ: And tomorrow, today will be yesterday.
  • Ki Manipulation: Able to shoot energy blasts out of his morpher.
  • Lightning Bruiser: He has some hefty attacks, and the speed to pull them off.
  • Mentor Archetype: For the Jungle Fury Rangers.
  • Noble Wolf: Possesses the Wolf spirit, becoming the Wolf Ranger after dealing with his Wolf Man troubles.
  • Smarter Than You Look: Though he may seem very laid-back and silly, he's a wise mentor with effective methods who masks himself with a calm and lazy persona.
  • Spiritual Antithesis: To Tommy in Dino Thunder. Both juggle day jobs that involve being the rangers' superior, both become rangers after three and both are the most experienced fighters. However, while Tommy was a former ranger and was very direct and serious from years of being a Power Ranger and insisted in training on martial arts, RJ is more casual and laid back and prefers to use the mundane to show how they are effective training methods.
  • Team Dad: For the Rangers.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Pizza. He loves it so much he opened his own shop just to have an endless supply.
  • Unrelated in the Adaptation: Unlike GekiViolet, he isn’t related to Theo, the team’s blue.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Initially has this relationship with Master Finn, though they reconnect over the course of the season.
  • Wolf Man: Periodically turns into a werewolf after Dai Shi injures his Wolf spirit until it is healed through Fran's friendship. He reverts to his form while influenced by an evil spirit sent by Grizzaka until, with Flit's help, RJ was able to snap out of it.

Dominic "Dom" Hargan / Jungle Fury Rhino Ranger | (Actor: Nikolai Nikolaeff)

Theo: That's your very, very safe place. Under [a seat cushion] with old french fries and dead cockroaches?
Dom: Genius, huh? No-one's gonna put their hands down there.
Dominic was a Pai Zhua student, but left after Master Mao's urging to find his way. Making his way to R.J., his prankster attitude made him weary in the Rangers eyes, but after saving Fran from a monster attack, he joined them as the Rhino Ranger.
  • Badass Bookworm: He connected with Fran over books.
  • Bavarian Fire Drill: He arrives into Jungle Karma Pizza disguised as Health Inspector. He drops the act after RJ appears and recognizes him.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: His morpher is this while unmorphed and morphed.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: The reason Master Mao sent him away.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Look at that quote above. That's when talking about where he left the McGuffin to keep his powers. Still, despite his odd habits, his thoughts do make a strange amount of sense.
  • Power Fist: Well, it's more like a Power Chop, since it's used for chopping instead of punching.
  • The Prankster: Remember, he entered the show playing a practical joke on the rangers.
  • Rhino Rampage: Possesses the Rhino spirit.
  • Sixth Ranger: Well, fifth, but it's not the first time it's happened (For added humour, both were White Rangers).
    • Somewhat averted, as shown in Super Megaforce when his helmet does not appear on Orion's Gold Mode. This confirms that Dominic, like RJ is an additional Ranger.
  • Spiky Hair: A spike in the front anyway. His pompadour lick is clearly meant to resemble the Rhino's horn on his helmet.
  • Walking the Earth: According to RJ. He only stays with the team because of two things: Fran, and the chance to be a Power Ranger.
  • Will They or Won't They?: With Fran.

    Their Friends 

Fran | (Actor: Sarah Thomson)
A book-loving, clumsy, loyal employee of Jungle Karma Pizza.
  • Adorkable: She's very excited when it comes to books, pizza and her crush on Dominic.
  • Ascended Fangirl: In a sense. She loved the pizza place so much that she was thrilled to be offered a job there.
  • Badass Normal: Has no powers, and arguably gets some of the best moments in the season regardless.
  • Butt-Monkey: Though she does stand up for herself at times.
  • Friendless Background: She has no siblings, her parents are "always busy", and apparently has no friends. Which is why she frequently hangs out at Jungle Karma Pizza, before being hired.
  • The Heart: Particularly to RJ and Dom.
  • Meganekko: She wears glasses in most of her appearances.
  • Morality Chain: She actively invokes this when RJ becomes a werewolf, it's a key factor in his eventual cure.
  • Motor Mouth:
    Everyone: Breathe, Fran.
  • Secret Keeper: Eventually becomes one for the Rangers.
  • Shipper on Deck: Encourages Theo to ask Lily out on a date.
  • Take Up My Sword: A variant. In an episode where Lily is acting like a Jerkass thanks to the Monster of The Week, Fran snaps her out of it by threatening to take her morpher and help the Rangers. She only doesn't do it because the resulting brawl between her and Lily causes said snap-out.
  • Will They or Won't They?: With Dominic.

Master Mao | (Actor: Nathaniel Lees)

The grand master of the Pai Zhua Academy.

Master Phant | (Actor: Bruce Allpress)

A Pai Zhua Master with the spirit of the Elephant.
  • Epic Flail: His main weapon, later passed on to Lily.
  • Grumpy Old Man: Initially was this as he did not want to come out of retirement, but Lily's persistence along with helping him in a Rinshi attack convinced him to teach her.
  • War Elephants: His animal spirit is the Elephant, which Lily could use after training.

Master Swoop | (Actor: Oliver Driver)

A Pai Zhua Master with the spirit of the bat.
  • Bat Out of Hell: His animal spirit is the Bat, which Theo could use after training.
  • Blind People Wear Sunglasses: Master Swoop wears sunglasses, though he does take them off at one point just to confirm that he is without eyesight (out of irritation over Theo waving his hand in front of his face).
  • Combat Hand Fan: His main weapon, later passed on to Theo.
  • Handicapped Badass: He's blind as a, well bat of course, but he is a Pai Zhua master nevertheless.

Master Finn | (Actor: Paul Gittins)

A Pai Zhua Master with the spirit of the shark. He's also R.J.'s father.
  • Dual Wielding: Wields two Shark Sabers, later passed on to Casey.
  • Threatening Shark: His animal spirit is the Shark, which Casey could use after training.

Master Rilla | (Actor: Stig Eldred)

A deceased Pai Zhua Master with the spirit of the gorilla.

Master Guin | (Actor: Michelle Langstone)

A deceased Pai Zhua Master with the spirit of the penguin.

Master Lope | (Actor: Andrew Laing)

A deceased Pai Zhua Master with the spirit of the antelope.

Spirit Rangers

After the Phantom Beast Generals were unleashed, Dai-Shi had them capture the Rangers' masters, and with the Crystal Eyes, he created the Spirit Rangers. While they initially fought against the Rangers, they fought with them after R.J. rescued the masters.
  • Ambiguously Human: In a sense. The Pai Zhua Master's do not morph, but instead, it's the animal spirits that turn into the Rangers.
  • Canon Immigrant: Like the Titanium Ranger in Lightspeed Rescue, the Spirit Rangers were original Power Rangers as '"Gekiranger'' did not have a Sixth Ranger.
  • Sixth Ranger: Each of them holds this position, even though they were used only a few times.

    Dai Shi Clan 

Jarrod/Dai Shi | (Actor: Bede Skinner; Geoff Dolan voices Dai Shi once he and Jarrod are separated)
An ancient and evil eight-headed Chinese dragon that initiated the "Beast War", believing that humans should be destroyed and that animals should rule the planet. However, the Order of the Claw have him locked away in their temple. After generations of being trapped, Dai Shi was released after Jarrod, a recently expelled Pai Zhua student, accidentally released him. Dai Shi possessed Jarrod, and resumed his goal of destroying all humans.
  • Adaptational Nice Guy: Jarrod's villainy is due to possession from Dai Shi, whereas Rio did his freely until Long reveals he was using him. Dai Shi himself, while still void of redeeming traits, wants to rule the planet with animals dominant over humans rather than make humanity extinct out of nothing but boredom.
  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: As Jarrod.
  • The Atoner. Near the end of the series.
  • Bad Boss: If Dai Shi wasn't one before he was sealed, he's one upon his release.
    Casey: (to Jarrod) I saw you protect Camille, Dai Shi wouldn't have done that.
    [Camille listens as she observes Casey and Jarrod/Dai Shi's fight.]
  • Big Bad: The theme song refers to the villains as the "Dai Shi" clan for a reason.
  • Composite Character: Of Rio and Long. Specifially, Jarrod is Rio and Dai Shi is Long.
  • Decomposite Character: Long's humanoid monster form is used as Scorch.
  • Death by Adaptation/Spared By Adaptation: Dai Shi is the former, Jarrod is the latter. Dai Shi's Gekiranger counterpart Long had Complete Immortality and couldn't die while Dai Shi is ultimately killed off and Jarrod's Gekiranger counterpart Rio died while Jarrod lives.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: In the finale, Jarrod, Dai Shi's former vessel, does this with his true form.
  • Demonic Possession: Dai Shi possesses Jarrod in the first episode and throughout the series until the finale.
  • Dragons are Demonic: Dai Shi's true form is that of a giant, eight-headed dragon.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Probably has the most qualities of one out of any Power Rangers villain besides Dark Specter. He's less an entity and more a demonic spirit for most of the series with immense power, even being able to rip open a portal to the afterlife to revive his minions once he regained enough of his true strength, and his true form is a gigantic eight-headed dragon that's not even close to humanoid. In addition, we never find out exactly what he is or where he came from.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He cares very deeply about the family that took him in his time of needs, the Fishers and does not want to erase the good deed he's done for them as a child.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Jarrod tells Dai Shi he never intended to hurt innocent people.
  • Evil Former Friend: Jarrod was once Dominic's roommate at the academy. Jarrod struggled to fit in, but Dominic never thought he was a bad guy and admits it's funny how things can work out.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: When Dai Shi is possessing Jarrod, his voice is much deeper. It's restored to normal when the two separate or when Jarrod isn't under Dai Shi's control.
  • Expy: Johnny, what are you doing in Power Rangers? Also, look at him in the average episode and say he's not channeling teenage Anakin Skywalker, or a redeemed Darth Vader near the end.
  • Female Gaze: Camille compliments Dai Shi's choice in host when she sees him again for the first time.
  • Four Is Death: Lampshaded in that his name is Japanese.
  • Freudian Excuse: For Jarrod. His parents weren't around that much, and he was bullied when he was younger. On the other hand, his roommate (Dominic) mentioned that he wasn't really a bad guy, just hardened due to bad circumstances.
  • Heel Realization: Realizes how far he's gone near the end of the series when Dai Shi states he choose Jarrod specifically because he lacked a heart. When he's finally freed, he goes into self-imposed exile, believing that going from being a mean-spirited bully to attempting human genocide means he doesn't deserve redemption. Fortunately, he's convinced he can turn good.
  • Ki Manipulation: His Zocato power can be used as this.
  • Love Redeems (Minion Shipping): With Camille.
  • One-Winged Angel: Dai Shi assumes his true form, which is that of an eight-headed dragon, in the finale.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: Dai Shi's true form is an eight-headed dragon, reminiscent of Orochi.
  • Our Gryphons Are Different: His Phantom Beast King form.
  • Meaningful Echo: In the finale, he's told that it's never too late to start over to redeem himself when other characters attempted to convince him to join them and fight Dai Shi. Later after Dai Shi is destroyed, Jarrod and Camille become martial arts student again under Casey's teaching, a young boy asks them whether they're already too old to become a student. Jarrod calmly answer: "It's never too late to start over."
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Dai Shi can be translated as 'Great Death'.
  • Panthera Awesome: Jarrod's animal spirit. "Spirit of the mighty Lion!"
  • Parental Abandonment: During his childhood, his parents weren't around much, and he had to stay with a neighbor most of the time.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Dai Shi has been stuck in an (unlocked!) box for 10,000 years. The box was kept by a secret order, but opened when a disgruntled student (Jarrod) barged in and attacked the order's master, accidentally knocking the box out of his hands. Unusually, however, Dai Shi is significantly weaker than he was, and has to struggle to regain his powers before the Rangers become strong enough to destroy him.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: Jarrod survives the series. His Gekiranger counterpart Rio sacrificed himself during the Final Battle.
  • Took a Level in Badass: After training from the three overlords, Dai Shi/Jarrod becomes far more powerful.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Dai Shi doesn't care for his minions' loyalties, only their successes.
    • He also doesn't appreciate the Phantom Beast Generals going behind his back, even if for Dai Shi's benefit.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: He wasn't always the bully he was shown to be in the first episode. Dominic attested he wasn't always a bad guy, just hardened.
  • You Have Failed Me: He strips Whiger of his Rinzin, title, and rank and banishes him from his temple as punishment for his defeat by the hands of the Jungle Master Stampede Formation.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: He allows the Rangers to destroy Carnisoar and Grizzaka and the Phantom Beast Generals to destroy Jellica because they are no longer needed by him now that he has learned to harness his hatred and deceit thanks to Carnisoar and Jellica and has learned Zocato on his own.

Camille | (Actor: Holly Shanahan)
Dai Shi's loyal servant with the spirit of the chameleon. She can use her spirit to create a suit of armor for combat uses.

Carnisoar | (Voice actor: Cameron Rhodes)
The Sky Overlord, the holder of the Hawk spirit, and a master of aerial martial arts. Dai Shi revived him in order to grow stronger.

Jellica | (Voice actress: Elisabeth Easther)
The Sea Overlord and the holder of the Jellyfish spirit. Camille revived her in order to train Dai Shi any further.
  • Animal Motifs: As the name would imply, her animal spirit is the jellyfish.
  • Dark Chick: One of the few female monsters in the season.
  • Evil Mentor: First to Camille, then to Dai Shi.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Freed the Phantom Beast Generals to defeat Dai Shi and take over, only for them to turn on her.
  • Hypocrite: Calls Dai Shi a traitor for going to the Rhino Nexus for power to destroy Grizzaka, despite that she and Carnisoar betrayed him out of fear of Grizzaka.
  • Noblewoman's Laugh: Complete with the hand gesture.
  • Oh, Crap!: She gets one when the Phantom Beast Generals turn against her, just before destroying her.

The Earth Overlord, holder of the Grizzly Bear Animal Spirit, and master of the power of Zocato. He was the final Overlord to be revived, but he took over the leadership from Dai Shi as he felt the latter was to blame for losing the Beast Wars and for inhabiting Jarrod.
  • Adaptational Nice Guy: Compared with his Sentai counterpart Maku. Grizzaka is arrogant, but Maku was an egostist who threw a fit any perceived insult, which short of the Kensei challenging him was just about everything.
  • Bears Are Bad News: As one might infer from his name, he's represented by the grizzly bear.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: While Grizzaka successfully usurps Dai Shi's throne, he only holds onto it until Dai Shi returns with the powers he gained from the Rhino Nexus. After that Dai Shi doesn't even consider him worth finishing off and allows him to walk away gather more fear since he knows Grizzaka doesn't pose a threat anymore.
  • The Brute: Clearly prefers straight up overpowering his foes with physical strength over anything else.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: After expresses his digust at Dai Shi inhabating a human, Grizzaka easily defeats him and forces him to submit to his rule.
    • The rangers attempt to fight Grizzaka with the Jungle Master Megazord when they first see him, but can't scratch him.
    • Prior to Casey joining the fight, Grizzaka is easily beating the rangers in his last battle.
  • The Dreaded: Dai Shi, due to his weakened state, is very nervous about reviving Grizzaka, not trusting him. Camille was likewise afraid, when she revived him she simply throw his bracelet and the life talon into the cave where he was defeated because she did not want to be near him when he came back to life.
  • No Indoor Voice: Grizzaka screams all the time.
  • Smug Super: His arrogance about his immense power and his claims to be completely invincible are good reasons why he counts as one. And given that he's considered one of the most ridiculously overpowered villains in the Power Rangers franchise (and yes, the same can be said of his Super Sentai counterpart Maku), he has every right to be smug about it.
  • The Starscream: Naturally, he blames Dai Shi for losing the war 10,000 years ago and hates humans even more. This makes perfect sense as, after being revived by Camille, he, upon arriving at Dai Shi's temple, is surprised to see that Dai Shi is now using the human Jarrod as a vessel. Jarrod wants Grizzaka to teach him Zocato, but, naturally, Grizzaka isn't too thrilled about that and simply refuses to take orders from any human. Guess what he does next?
    • Interestingly, out of all the Starscreams in the Power Rangers series, he is one of the few who actually succeed in overthrowing the Big Bad, and after his success, he becomes the ruler of the other evil forces until Dai Shi returns and takes back his throne. Although, his reign as the main villain is rather short, compared to his Gekiranger counterpart.
    • He's apparently no longer this upon his revival, due to Dai Shi becoming stronger and no longer in a human's body.
    • So, by definition, Grizzaka was disloyal to Jarrod, rather than to Dai Shi himself.
  • This Cannot Be!: He screams this after the Rangers destroy him with the Jungle Master Stampede Formation.
  • This Is Unforgivable!: Before his huge battle with the Rangers, he declares to them, "You destroyed all my warriors, my royal guards, and the great Overlord Carnisoar. Finally, I shall destroy you!"
  • Unstoppable Rage: Even Jarrod and the other villains are wary of pissing him off.
  • We Meet Again: He says this verbatim to the Rangers before their huge fight in his last episode appearance before the finale.
  • Wolverine Claws: His bare claws.

Scorch | (Voice actor: Mark Wright)
The leader of the Phantom Beasts and possesses the Avalon Dragon Animal Spirit. His main goal was to make Dai Shi the Phantom Beast King. Later attempts to overthrow him.
  • Adaptational Nice Guy: Downplayed. Scorch is still evil, but he's not much of a Manipulative Bastard and The Chessmaster like Long was. Those traits fit more with Dai Shi
  • Adaptational Wimp: Long is unkillable and has a final form in Gekiranger. Scorch doesn't have any of these.
  • Decomposite Character: He and Dai Shi are the same person and the Big Bad of Gekiranger.
  • If You're So Evil, Eat This Kitten: How he feels about his non-pure animal teammates. He believes that Jarrod has "too much human in him" and tries to destroy that side of him. He similarly thinks very little of Camille, seeing her as unworthy of general-hood at best, and an obstruction to Dai Shi's plans at worst.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: His spirit is identified as "Avalon Dragon".
  • The Dragon: Seems to be leader of the Phantom Beasts, so he essentially takes this role for Dai Shi.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Dai Shi, not Jarrod.
  • The Starscream: He was this to Dai Shi in the past, he even returns to the role later on to him and Camille after Whiger was defeated. Though he does conspire against him, due to Jarrod resisting Dai Shi's control.

Snapper | (Voice actor: Richard Simpson)
A Phantom Beast General that has the Snapping Turtle animal spirit.
  • Death by Woman Scorned: He really shouldn't have told Camille she wasn't worthy of being a Master. Or tried to have her killed.
  • The Hedonist: Compared to the other generals, he partakes in more earthly pleasures, like eating.
  • No-Sell: With his turtle shell on his back.
  • Turtle Power: Snapping Turtle, natch.
  • Villainous Glutton: Loves to eat. Despite his weight, is still very nimble in a fight.

Whiger | (Voice actor: Jared Turner)
A Phantom Beast General that has the White Tiger animal spirit.

Flit | (Voice actor: Kelson Henderson)
A former enemy of Camille whom she cursed, turning him into an anthropomorphic fly. He must stay inside her stomach or die from being outside for too long, but exits her to provide commentary for the Megazord fights.
  • Combat Commentator: For various Megazord fights.
  • Expy: Of Norg. Both are actually good beings forced to work with the side of evil and both act as the comic reliefs for their respective seasons.
    • Only difference is that whilst Norg has occasionally tried to help Flurious with his plans (albeit without realizing how dangerous they are), Flit hasn't attempted any evil schemes and has helped the rangers on occasion, especially RJ.
  • Fly Crazy: Being swallowed and swatted by Camille.
  • Good All Along: Flit's not a bad guy, just forced to stick with her due to unfortunate circumstances. He hasn't committed any evil acts at all and has helped RJ on more than one occasion, whom he befriends after the latter saved his life beforehand.
  • Laughably Evil: He's not evil at all, really. He's just forced to be with Camille due to a curse.
  • Swallowed Whole: Camille had done it in an attempt to kill him shortly after being transformed, it doesn't work. She still occasionally swallows him when he annoys her.
  • Was Once a Man: He was turned into a fly by Camille. He is later turned back into a human towards the finale.

Rinshi Warriors

Jiang Shi-like warriors that serve as Dai Shi's foot soldiers. A select few of them can be given animal totems and become Rinshi Beasts.

    Rinshi & Phantom Beasts 

In General:

  • Back for the Finale: Almost all of them came back for Now the Final Fury.
  • Elite Mooks: What the Rinshi Beasts are. They're Rinshi Warriors that Dai Shi grants an animal totem.
  • Make My Monster Grow: An inherent ability as rather having outside help, they can grow on their own.


Voiced by: Pat Courtenay
A praying mantis themed Rinshi Beast, and the first one that attacked Ocean City.


Voiced by: Scott Alexander Young
A buffalo themed Rinshi Beast.
  • A Load of Bull: A buffalo-themed monster.
  • The Bus Came Back: Returned in Don't Blow That Dough.
  • Super Strength: Arguably one of the most physically powerful monsters featured in Jungle Fury, strong enough to break through buildings and, assuming the presentation is accurate, blow up a car by smashing into it.

Five Fingers of Poison

Five elite Rinshi Beasts that have mastery of poison.
  • Dwindling Party: They progressively get taken out over the course of a handful of episodes, starting with Rantipede, then Gakko, then Toady and Stingerella, and finally Naja.
  • Fallacy of Division: Whenever they work together, they completely mop the floor with the Rangers as demonstrated by their first outing, as well as Stingerella and Toady. However, their overconfidence and individual desires to prove themselves gets them taken out one by one, until Naja decides to revolt against Dai-Shi.
  • Psycho Rangers: Not in the traditional sense, but they could be considered one as they are part of a team.
  • Quirky Miniboss Squad: Five Rinshi Beasts that have their own form of fighting styles to keep the Rangers on their toes. It takes roughly five episodes for the Rangers to dispatch them all.
  • Villainous Friendship: Between certain members, at least. Toady and Stingerella became a Battle Couple, while Naja sacrificed two life talons to bring back Gakko and Rantipede for his coup.


Voiced by: Gerald Urquhart
A centipede themed Rinshi Beast and the first member of the Five Fingers of Poison to fight the Rangers.
  • Brown Bag Mask: Initially wore a bag over his head. Upon removing it, he revealed his status as The Grotesque.
  • The Bus Came Back: Was briefly revived by Naga in Pizza Slice of Life.
  • Co-Dragons: When Naja defected, Rantipede and Gakko were brought back to aid him in taking out Dai Shi.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: His attempt to take Dai-Shi one on one doesn't end well for him, as he's effortlessly taken out mere seconds into the exchange.
  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: What his Hundred Chop attack is.
  • Whip It Good: Can use centipede-shaped head as a whip.


Voiced by: Bruce Hopkins
A gecko themed Rinshi Beast and the second member of the Five Fingers of Poison to fight the Rangers.
  • The Bus Came Back: Was briefly revived by Naga in Pizza Slice of Life.
  • Co-Dragons: He and Rantipede became Naja's co-conspirators when he decided to defect.
  • Dragon Their Feet: His decision to cut and run allows him to outlast Naja, but he's easily taken out by the Rangers soon after
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: After Dai-Shi takes out Rantipede in mere seconds, Gakko decides to book it and spread fear to gain more power. Unfortunately, he runs afoul of the Rangers and is promptly destroyed for the second time.
  • Stock Ninja Weaponry: Wields shurikens as his main weapon.
  • Wall Crawl: Thanks to his gecko theme, Gakko can stick to any surface.

A toad themed Rinshi Beast and the third member of the Five Fingers of Poison (along with Stingerella) to fight the Rangers.
  • Abhorrent Admirer: Towards his teammate Stingerella, but she eventually fell for him after he helped her in the Ranger fight.
  • Adaptational Nice Guy: Downplayed, but his Gekiranger counterpart became a Jerkass after winning over Stingerella's.
  • Barrier Warrior: Can create a forcefield to protect himself from all attacks... except for the Claw Cannon.
  • The Brute: Plenty strong, but not very bright.

A cobra themed Rinshi Beast and the leader of the Five Fingers of Poison.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: Easily the most powerful of the Five Fingers of Poison. His skill allows him to best Camille in combat and even when she gains a power up for their rematch, he still puts up a good fight.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: At the end of the day, he's a Monster of the Week trying to overthrow the Big Bad. His rebellion is handily dealt with in the span of a single episode, with Camille thwarting his assissination attempt, and Dai Shi inflicting a Curb-Stomp Battle on Rantipede and Gakko, killing the former and sending the latter running scared. Naja himself ends up killed by Camille without Dai Shi even facing him.
  • Death Is Cheap: Camille manages to best him in their initial scuffle and were he any other Rinshi, he would have been done right there, but he uses one of his life talons to resurrect himself and resume the fight, which allows him to defeat her in turn.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: He doesn't tolerate his teammates mocking their fallen comrades.
  • The Necromancer: With his life talons, he can revive deceased Rinshi Beasts, even himself.
  • Sinister Scythe: Wields two scythes.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: Despite dying early on, his life talons were used by Dai-Shi to revive the three Overlords later in the season.
  • Smug Snake: As competent and formidable as he was, Naja underestimated Camille's loyalty to Dai Shi and severely overestimated his ability to bring down Dai Shi himself. Double points for actually being modeled after a snake.
  • The Starscream: As the Five Fingers of Poison dwindled, Naja believed Dai-Shi was not suited for leadership and attempted a coup. He is notable for being the first Monster of the Week in Power Rangers to be this.
  • Villain Has a Point: Treacherous though he may be, Naja was completely right in pointing out that Dai-Shi doesn't appreciate Camille's Undying Loyalty. Even after she protected him from his assassination attempt, Dai-Shi callously remarks that loyalty is expected.
  • We Can Rule Together: He offers this to Camille, appealing to her desire for recognition and appreciation. It appears to work... but Camille decides to remain loyal to Dai-Shi and kills him.

  • The Bus Came Back: Returned in Don't Blow That Dough.
  • Earthquake Machine: Can create earthquakes by manipulating the fault lines.
  • Famous Last Words: ""You destroyed my shiny armor! Oh, the shame!""
  • Made of Iron: His outer shell was very difficult to break through, and it gave the Rangers a lot of trouble until Lily mastered the Elephant spirit and gained the Jungle Mace.

Shadow Guards

A pair of robotic beetle themed monsters brought to life by Carnisor's powers.
  • Blade on a Stick: Each of them wield spears for weapons.
  • Dies Differently in Adaptation: Downplayed. The Black Shadow Guard was destroyed by the three new Jungle Beast zords in Power Rangers, while in Gekiranger, he was destroyed by all nine of the Rangers zords (their main three zords, the auxilary zords, and their newer zords).
  • Japanese Beetle Brothers: The white one is based on the Hercules beetle, while the black one is based on the Stag beetle.
  • The Voiceless: Neither of them spoke a word.
