Ninja Storm Rangers

    In General
The Ninja Storm Rangers
  • Animal-Motif Team: Including being Ninja-themed Rangers, their secondary motif is animals as all their Zords are animal-based.
  • Contrasting Sequel Main Character: The Wild Force Rangers had powers with animals as their main source from an ancient civilization and started off with a team of five. The Wind Rangers' powers are elemental and ninja based that were made in the present and started off as a trio. And while the Wild Force Rangers had a male Blue Ranger and a female Yellow Ranger, the Wind Rangers have the reverse with a male Yellow and (for the first time in Power Rangers history) a female Blue.
  • Elemental Powers: Aside from Cam, all the Rangers this season have powers connected to the elements. Shane controls air, Tori controls water, Dustin controls Earth, and the Thunder Rangers control lightning.
  • Ninja: The Wind and Thunder Rangers are ninja-themed and are more pronounced than the Mighty Morphin and Alien Rangers team ten years ago. Cam subverts this as he is known as the Green Samurai Ranger.
  • Three Plus Two: This is the first team of Power Rangers to begin with three members instead of five. The Wind Rangers were a team of three at the start of the season before being joined by the Thunder Ranger duo. Cam eventually becomes the Sixth Ranger of the team, making for an overall Three Plus Two Plus One formula.
  • Transformation Trinket:
    • The Wind Rangers morph using wrist-mounted Wind Morphers, powered by Power Discs. When morphed, the Rangers can use the Morphers to fire ninja beams.
    • The Thunder Rangers morph using wrist-mounted Thunder Morphers, again powered by Power Discs.
    • The Green Samurai Ranger morphs using the Samurai Cyclone Morpher, which normally stays as the Samurai Amulet when not in use.

Wind Rangers

    In General 
  • Land, Sea, Sky: The trio each use these elements that they learned in the Wind Ninja Academy: Shane focuses on wind, Tori focuses on water, and Dustin focuses on earth.
  • Two Guys and a Girl: The Wind Ranger trio consists of two male Rangers (Shane and Dustin) and one lone female Ranger (Tori).
  • Took a Level in Badass: Initially, the trio were the misfits of the Wind Ninja Academy that were the lower class of the school. But fighting monsters all season made them seasoned veterans, eventually becoming teachers after Lothor's defeat.
  • The Unchosen One: Because of their low status in the Wind Ninja Academy, it seemed that the trio were only chosen to become Power Rangers because they were the only ones Sensei could use as the others were captured. This is subverted in the finale as Sensei revealed that, according to the Scroll of Destiny, they were always meant to be Power Rangers. He just never told them until then because he did not think they would believe him.

    Shane Clarke / Red Wind Ranger 

Shane Clarke / Red Wind Ranger

Portrayed by: Pua Magasiva
Voiced by: Enrique Horiuchi (Latin American Spanish)

Not another clone story! Didn't we already do this?

Shane was a student at the Ninja Academy, but because he and his friends were late helping a couple with their car, they escaped Lothor's invasion and getting captured. Due to his affinity with wind, he received the Red Wind Ranger powers.

  • Acquired Situational Narcissism: The second episode, "There's No "I" in Team." He lets being the Red Ranger go to his head, thinking the others should just do as he says and that he doesn't need any help. A monster fight forces him to see otherwise.
  • Adaptational Personality Change: He's more serious compared to Yousuke from Hurricanegers, the latter of whom was a bit of an air head.
  • Blow You Away: He's the Ninja with the Power of Air and using a ton of wind attacks.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: With Hunter in "Boxing Bopp-A-Roo."
  • Cool Board: Shane shows interest in skateboarding.
  • "Freaky Friday" Flip: With the Sensei in "Sensei Switcharoo".
  • Law of Chromatic Superiority: He gets the usual Battlizer.
  • The Leader: Shane leads the Wind Rangers in battle, and after the Thunder Rangers and Cam join the front lines, he serves as the leader of the entire Ninja Storm Rangers.
  • Noble Bird of Prey: His secondary theme is the Hawk.
  • The Gunslinger: Shane's primary weapon is the Hawk Blaster, a gun designed as a blow drier with a hawk motif.
  • Power Gives You Wings: The second mode of the Battlizer: a smaller version of his own Hawk Zord forms a jetpack that lets him take out Vexacus' spaceship in a dogfight. He briefly gets energy wings during the finisher to boot.
  • Red Is Heroic: After Lothor captures the students of the Wind Academy, Shane fulfills his destiny to become the Red Wind Ranger.
  • The Spock: He's generally the most mellow guy on the team (though he and Hunter spend an episode as competition freaks).
  • Super Mode: Shane gains the Tri-Battlizer in the second half of the season. The Tri-Battlizer features two modes: a sleek armored mode, and a flight mode.
  • "Well Done, Son" Guy: Or in his case, "Well Done, Little Brother! Guy". He didn't get along with his older brother, a business man, because he never liked his love of skateboarding. When he finds out Shane is a Power Ranger, he starts treating him with more respect.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Tori mentions that he's afraid of spiders. A childhood flashback shows Shane very hesitantly freeing Skyla from a spider web. His worst fear is his family looking down on him, particularly his older brother.

    Tori Hanson / Blue Wind Ranger 

Tori Hanson / Blue Wind Ranger

Portrayed by: Sally Martin
Voiced by: Yotzmit Ramírez (Latin American Spanish), Kim Mai Guest (Power Rangers: Super Legends)

What's wrong? Never seen a girl in blue spandex walk on water?

Tori was a student at the Ninja Academy, but because she and her friends were late helping a couple with their car, they escaped Lothor's invasion and getting captured. Due to her affinity with water, she received the Blue Wind Ranger powers.

  • Action Girl: Don't you worry, this girl definitely makes up for The Smurfette Principle.
  • Adaptational Job Change: She's a surfer, while her Sentai counterpart was a singer.
  • Adaptational Personality Change: She's a tomboy, while her Sentai counterpart was very much a girly-girl.
  • Arbitrary Skepticism: The infamous first episode weirdness. She didn't believe the Power Rangers existed despite that she goes to a school of magical ninjas, or that the Earth was invaded by aliens years prior.
  • Blue Is Heroic: After Lothor captures the students of the Wind Academy, Tori fulfills her destiny to become the Blue Wind Ranger.
  • Dude Magnet: She and Blake have a mutual attraction. A surfer in episode 3 gets a crush on her. Another surfer in The Wild Wipeout calls her a babe. A couple times, Choobo says she's pretty. And when they meet the Dino Thunder rangers, Conner and Ethan both agree she’s cute.
  • Heroic Dolphin: Her secondary motif is the dolphin.
  • Iconic Sequel Character: Tori doesn't appear until season 11, but many fans consider her to be one of the best Blue Rangers in the franchise.
  • Improbable Weapon User: The Sonic Fin. A megaphone that shoots sonic blasts.
  • The Kirk: Compared to Shane's seriousness and Dustin's wackiness, she comes off as the level headed one of the trio.
  • Making a Splash: Power of water.
  • My Card: At the end of "Once a Ranger," Tori presents Andrew Hartford with her business card.
  • One of the Boys: Subverted - she doesn't appreciate being told this in "Beauty and the Beach".
  • Surfer Dude: Tori spends her time surfing.
  • Ship Tease: With Blake.
  • The Smurfette Principle: She's the only girl on the team for the first time in Power Rangers history (not counting Delphine).
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: She likes shopping and focusing on her hair but she's one of the more focused and action-based female rangers.
  • True Blue Femininity: Tori is a blue ranger, the only girl on her team, and is a heroic character who is friendlier to Cam than her male teammates.
  • Two-Timer Date: Non-romantic. Trying to balance Shane's skate competition and a movie with the Thunders was never really going to work, even with super-speed.
  • Walk on Water: Part of her unique ninja powers.
  • Water Is Womanly: Downplayed. She's the Blue Wind Ranger with the power of water and a dolphin motif, as well as the only girl among the Wind Rangers. She's a tomboy, but is more mature than her male teammates.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: She is not fond of getting her hair cut.
  • Will They or Won't They?: She and Blake have a mutual attraction and it's implied that they are dating but they aren't official.

    Dustin Brooks / Yellow Wind Ranger 

Waldo "Dustin" Brooks / Yellow Wind Ranger

Portrayed by: Glenn MacMillan
Voiced by: Noé Velásquez (Latin American Spanish)

Well, I guess no-one's laughing at the comic book geek now, ARE they?

Dustin was a student at the Ninja Academy, but because he and his friends were late helping a couple with their car, they escaped Lothor's invasion and getting captured. Due to his affinity with earth, he received the Yellow Wind Ranger powers.

  • Acquired Situational Narcissism: "Tongue and Cheek," where the Yellow Ranger is hailed as a public, solo hero for stopping some human thugs from busting up Storm Chargers. While the others (rather unfairly) give him crap about it, Dustin actually takes it in stride and just likes getting some respect for a change. However, after a solo fight against the Monster of the Week in front of some reporters, Dustin starts letting the fame go to his head. When he encounters the monster again (who, by this point, has captured Hunter and Blake), he refuses to morph or fight until the press are about to arrive—baffling Shane (who is jealous), Tori, and even the monster. Dustin gets over it, though.
    Shane: Take it from someone who's been there. There's no "I" in team.
    Dustin: Maybe there should be.
  • Ascended Fanboy: He was already a big fan of the Power Rangers.
  • Author Avatar: Showrunner at the time Doug Sloan wrote Dustin to be like himself when he was a teenager, as Sloan did motocross and was as happy-go-lucky during that time.
  • Badass Biker: In addition to riding a motorcycle into combat like so many other Power Rangers, Dustin is an impressive dirt bike rider (which is why he gains the power of Earth).
  • The Big Guy: Out of the core three and later six, he has the most gung ho attitude to becoming a ranger. He's physically much stronger than his teammates and can send a monster flying with a single blow. Dustin also has the most ninja attacks and move-sets: Ninja Clones, earth mines, slashing through the earth, and his Storm Striker's finishing move is dropping 100 tons on the opponent.
  • Carry a Big Stick: His signature weapon is the Lion Hammer, a gigantic hammer that helps him use stronger ninja attacks and does tons of damage.
  • Dating Catwoman: With Marah in "All About Beevil".
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Power of Earth.
  • Doppelgänger Attack: "It's two!" "Two!" "Rangers in one!"
  • Embarrassing First Name: His real name is Waldo.
  • "Freaky Friday" Flip: With the Sensei in "Sensei Switcharoo".
  • The Heart: While Blake falls into this by not filling any other time, Dustin is the one that really brings the two Ranger factions together.
  • King of Beasts: His secondary theme is the lion.
  • The McCoy: Is definitely the most emotional of the Rangers.
  • Meaningful Name: His name is Dustin and he's a ninja lot of dirt and earth attacks.
  • Nice Guy: He’s unfailingly friendly and trusting towards everyone he meets. This is deconstructed several times throughout the series as it makes him a Horrible Judge of Character when he becomes too trusting of enemies such as Hunter, Blake, and Marah. However, it could be said that it’s a Decon-Recon Switch and ability to see the good in others as every enemy he trusts becomes an ally by the end of the season.
  • Primary-Color Champion: After Lothor captures the students of the Wind Academy, Dustin fulfills his destiny to become the Yellow Wind Ranger.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: He's afraid of heights.

Thunder Rangers

    In General 
  • Adaptational Nice Guy:
    • In Hurricaneger, the Gouraigers were antagonistic to the main trio by their own choice and only joined them afterwards after realizing that gaining the Evil Will was not a good deal. In Power Rangers, the Thunder Rangers only fought the Rangers because Lothor manipulated them and once they learned the truth about their parents' real killer, they easily joined the Rangers after some soul searching.
    • This also extends to their attitudes. The Gouraigers had a haughty attitude towards the Hurricanegers even after their Heel–Face Turn and it took awhile for them to befriend them. Here, Hunter and Blake are more affable towards the Wind Rangers and are seen hanging out with them shortly after their reformation.
  • Badass Biker: Both Rangers are trained motocross bikers, and they own their own Tsunami Cycles.
  • Bash Brothers: They may not be blood related, but Hunter and Blake are strongest when they work together and always have each others back.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: They originally had their voices deepened while morphed to maintain their secret identites. Once the Wind Rangers discovered they were Hunter and Blake, the aspect was dropped.
  • Japanese Beetle Brothers: While its not stated outright, the Thunder Rangers main Animal Motif are beetles with the Crimson Ranger themed after the Rhinoceros Beetle and the Navy Ranger themed after the Stag Beetle.
  • Related Differently in the Adaptation: The Gouraigers were blood brothers in the Sentai, but Hunter and Blake are adopted brothers.
  • Shock and Awe: True to their name, the Thunder Rangers control the power of lightning.

  • Mecha Expansion Pack: With the Mammothzord, the Rangers can form the Thunder Ultrazord or the Hurricane Ultrazord.


Ninja Academy/Ninja Ops

    Sensei Kanoi Watanabe 

Sensei Kanoi Watanabe

Portrayed by: Grant McFarland
Voiced by: Benjamín Rivera (young), Luis Alfonso Padilla (adult) (Latin American Spanish)

Those who fail to install cable in time for the science-fiction marathon will feel the wrath of the angry guinea pig.

The head master of the Wind Academy and the father to Cam. During Lothor's first attack, he was turned into a guinea pig due to their attacks clashing.

  • Adaptation Species Change: Played with. While they're both still human, Kanoi's Sentai counterpart, Mugensai Hinata, transformed into a hamster and stayed that way for most of Hurricaneger, while Kanoi was forcibly transformed into a guinea pig by Lothor.
    • On a meta level, Mugensai alternated between a puppet and an actual hamster, while Kanoi is CG.
  • Always Wanted to Say That: "Go for Sensei!"
  • Big Good: He's Cam's father and the Rangers' sensei. And he's had experience dealing with Lothor before.
  • Cain and Abel: He's the brother of Big Bad Lothor.
  • Disowned Sibling: He no longer considers Lothor his brother.
  • "Freaky Friday" Flip: With Shane and later Dustin in "Sensei Switcheroo".
  • Hypocrite: Says his reasons for forbidding Cam become a ninja was because it was a life of constant danger, yet he has no qualms about subjecting other teens to such dangers, without their parents consent, or even their knowledge. Somewhat justified, since his wife, Cam's mother, was the one who asked that he not be trained, in what may have been a Deathbed Wish.
  • Mentor Mascot: To be fair, he's stuck in that guinea pig body.
  • Shapeshifter Mode Lock: He's stuck as a guinea pig for almost the entire season.
  • Team Dad: Especially for Can, being his actual father.



Portrayed by: Jason Chan

Don't hate the player! Hate the game!

A holographic version of the original Cam that served as the new mission control after the latter became the Green Ranger.

    Wind Academy Students 

Wind Academy Students

The other students of the academy, they are defeated and taken prisoner by Lothor at the beginning of the series.

  • And I Must Scream: They are imprisoned inside a big magic bubble and are constantly begging for help for the entire series until they are finally rescued to help in the final battle. Then they are trapped again during the Dino Thunder crossover.
  • Badass in Distress: They are kidnapped and kept prisoners twice by Lothor, first in this show and later during the Ninja Storm/Dino Thunder crossover.
  • Red Shirt Army: In the first episode, they are not able to beat simple Mooks. In the Dino Thunder crossover, they are also unable to defend the academy from Lothor, his generals, and the mind-controlled Wind Rangers.

    Eric McKnight 

Eric McKnight

Portrayed by: James Napier

A teenager saved by the Power Rangers, who eventually decides to join the Academy with his friends Kyle and Tally. He's the twin brother of Conner McKnight, who soon after would become the Red Dino Thunder Ranger and reveals that Eric flunked out of the Academy.

  • Ambiguous Situation: It's never explained why he lives in Blue Bay Harbor while his brother lives in Reefside.
  • Cannot Keep a Secret: He apparently didn't bother to hide that students at the Academy could potentially become Power Rangers themselves, having told at least Conner.
  • Last Episode, New Character: He only appears in the last two episodes of Ninja Storm, but his twin brother is one of the main characters of Dino Thunder and even encounters the Ninja Storm Rangers.
  • Polar Opposite Twins: Downpalayed, as Conner thinks they're this as he describes Eric as being an airhead and that the two of them are completely different, being oblivious to the fact that this is how his friends see him. However while they share many similar qualities, Conner is very passionate about soccer and becomes a better leader through Character Development while Eric flunked out of the Academy, suggesting that Conner was more serious than his brother.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Him and his friends are clear parallels to the Rangers, with Eric seemingly being the Dustin of his group.


    Kelly Holloway 

Kelly Holloway

Portrayed by: Megan Nicol
The owner of an extreme sports store where Dustin works and his teammates hang out.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: She doesn't know that her friends are the Ninja Rangers.
  • Nice Girl: Kelly is a lenient boss towards Dustin, helps him with his time trials off-duty, and generally tries to help other people during monster attacks.
  • Screw the Money, I Have Rules!: Kelly refuses a chain store's attempt to buy her business for more than it's worth while keeping her on as a manager because they have a reputation for selling inferior products and not actually caring about extreme sports.

Lothor's Army

Lothor and Family


Lothor / real name: Kiya Watanabe

Portrayed by: Grant McFarland, Daniel Sung (young)
Voiced by: Benjamín Rivera (young), Sebastián Llapur (Latin American Spanish)

The next person who uses a made-up word has to put a dollar in the made-up-word jar!

A ninja and alien conqueror who was banished from Earth but has returned to seek his revenge with his army of dark ninjas. His less-than-serious, chatty, and irreverent demeanor hides the fact that Lothor is a ferociously powerful warrior, armed with dangerous dark ninja magic and unrivaled hand-to-hand combat skills. He is introduced assaulting Wind Ninja Academy, and capturing all but three of its students, who now act as a thorn on his side as the Wind Rangers, later joined by the Thunder Rangers he initially decieved into helping him, and one more, whose journey inadvertedly reveals his past.

Years ago, a Wind Academy student named Kiya wanted to steal a pendant from another student, only for his brother Kanoi and a young man, Cam, to stop him. As punishment, he was stripped of his rank, and exiled into space. Years later, Kiya would return, now under the name Lothor, and capture his brother's students before setting his sights against the Wind Rangers.

  • Adaptational Badass: Tau Zant didn't get a chance to personally fight the Hurricanegers and Gouraigers without being fused with the "Evil Force". Lothor on the other hand, doesn't need the "Evil Force" to fight the Ninja Storm Rangers and is competent enough to force them out from their transformation. Also unlike Tau Zant he has no Achilles' Heel for anyone to exploit and is only beaten when the Rangers sacrifice their powers to seal him in the Abyss.
  • Adaptational Comic Relief: Downplayed, but Tau Zant is a legitimately threatening Big Bad and not a Laughably Evil Not-So-Harmless Villain.
  • Adaptational Intelligence: Unlike Tau Zant's one-route plan to awaken the Evil Will, Lothor had two plans for his conquests: either one of his monsters defeat the Ninja Storm Rangers or the Ninja Storm Rangers fill up the Abyss of Evil to let him resurrect every minion he's had and perhaps more, then use his regained army to take over the world.
  • Adaptation Species Change: Whilst Tau Zant was an alien from outer space, Lothor is a human originally from Earth who was banished into space.
  • Arch-Enemy: He's more than earned enmity with the Wind Rangers for kidnapping the rest of their classmates and the Thunder Rangers for causing the deaths of their parents, but he has a clear and personal hate for the Sensei. The two were brothers, or at least before Lothor was disowned, and the two share the same amount of hate for each other.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: He spends more time sitting on his throne and cracking meta-jokes than actually fighting, but when he does fight he's quite clearly out of the Rangers' league. He even gives Mesogog trouble when their alliance falls apart, before the more serious villain manages to get the drop on him.
    Linkara: Lothor was one hell of a fighter!
  • Beyond Redemption: Kanoi's attempts to reason with him in the first episode go nowhere. He's long since accepted Lothor is no longer the brother he knew.
  • Big Bad: The main villain of Ninja Storm and leader of his own army to take over the world.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: "This is the most fun I've had all season!"
    • And "What did you expect? He wasn't going to get SMALLER!"
  • Cain and Abel: He's the twin brother of Mentor Sensei Kanoi Watanabe. By extension, this makes him Cam's Evil Uncle and Kanoi's Evil Twin.
  • The Chessmaster: Throughout the series he uses everyone as pawns. He manipulated Vexacus, Marah and Kapri to kill his generals save for Choobo, had his monsters destroyed by the Rangers, and tricks Cam into stealing the Samurai Amulet so that he can open the Abyss of Evil.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: He has betrayed everyone who has placed trust in him, including his monsters that he sent to battle the Rangers, Vexacus and most of Lothor's generals, Cam, as well as Marah and Kapri.
  • The Corrupter: He corrupted the Thunder Rangers into thinking that Kanoi killed their parents.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Lothor might not be the most evil villain, but he's one of the best in terms of combat as the Rangers never defeat him in hand-to-hand. Mesogog also only beats him with a dirty trick.
  • The Dark Arts: He practiced them in his youth. His powers have become even greater as an adult.
  • Evil Plan: Wiping out Kanoi's ninja academy because of The Dark Side and revenge for exiling him. Family rivalry too.
  • Exact Words: In the past, Kiya told Cam that he knows that his brother Kanoi can be defeated, which he later demostrates by attacking him with his dark ninja powers.
  • Expy: Of the first big screen villain of the franchise, Ivan Ooze. Lothor's mannerisms, his lisp, higher pitch, down to his comedic yet menacing tone and specially his costume design heavily implies this. Further, on the crossover with Dino Thunder, Cam indagues whoever else besides Lothor would leave a trace of purple goo whenever appearing.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Initially despite his supposed reputation, his plans tend to be sillier and his attitude is more of a sitcom uncle; in his youth he was initially friendly to Cam, that's until he tried to frame him of theft. And soon after it turns out that he is much more malicious than he let on, as he willingly let Vexacus kill a lot of his forces and ultimately leaves Marah and Kapri to die out of paranoia that they could betray him. He also is fully unrepetant of his villainous acts.
  • Final Boss: At the end of the series, he becomes the very last villain our heroes have to face, with all his other generals and competitors biting the dust.
  • Frame-Up:
    • Lothor framed his own brother for the murder of the Bradley brothers' parents which he himself committed.
    • In "The Samurai's Journey", his younger self frames Cam for the theft of Miko's Green Samurai amulet. Fortunately, Kanoi is able to expose Kiya's treachery. Lothor seems to have a penchant for framing his own family member for crimes he commits.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: Lothor was once Kiya, a student of the Wind Ninja Academy until he was banished for practicing The Dark Arts. When he returns as Lothor, he has amassed an army capable of taking on both the Wind and Thunder Ninja Academies.
  • I Was Quite a Looker: As a teenager, Kiya was good looking while being a Ninja student, but ironically Kiya thought that only his brother Kanoi got the good looks in their family. He later lost this after his banishment.
  • Karma: He imprisoned his brother's ninja students twice, the second time in a bottle, also he shrinked and turned his own brother into a guinea pig and betrayed his nieces Kapri and Marah. Later in the Dino Thunder team-up, he is betrayed by Marah and Kapri, is imprisoned into a crystal jar and while not turned into a guinea pig, he's still shrunk into a toy size by Mesogog.
  • Killed Offscreen: In Dino Thunder. Since Mesogog sealed him in a canister at the end of the two-part team-up episode, he was most likely killed when Hayley destroys Mesogog's fortress in the finale.
  • Kung-Fu Wizard: Lothor is a ninja who has mastered martial arts and magic.
  • Large Ham: He loves hamming up the screen (even when he's dealing with incompetence from his nieces and generals) and just having fun being evil.
  • Laughably Evil: His personal plans are... eccentric, to say the least. Mesogog has a complete lack of respect for him for a reason.
  • Make My Monster Grow: He has a Personal Alien Manager, or P.A.M, that allows him to send out the Scroll of Empowerment and grow the monsters this season. Although it's later revealed that he can only grow one monster at a time due to forgoing the extra memory upgrade.
  • Manipulative Bastard: He deserves this title and more for his insane the final stage of his Evil Plan alone.
  • Motive Decay: Inverted once his master plan is revealed.
  • Mood Whiplash: Being sandwiched between two truly horrifying Big Bads makes his Laughably Evil and Large Ham traits stick out a bit.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain: Keeping the The Wind Ninjas prisoner instead of destroying them ultimately lead to the tables being turned against him during the Final Battle.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: Despite not being as serious as the two previous Big Bads before him, Lothor proves he's at least competent in terms of long term plans and hand-to-hand combat. He's one of the few villains in the franchise that his respective Rangers never actually beat in a real fight. Same goes for Mesogog; when the two battle, Mesogog ends up having to use his telepathy to gain the upper hand.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: He's not as dumb as he personifies and is one of the most competent of the villains, even being able to realize the Enemy Civil War within his generals. That being said, his endgame proves he played both sides for fools.
  • Orcus on His Throne: But as it turns out, he has a reason.
  • Related in the Adaptation: Tau Zant had no familial ties to anyone, let alone Furabijo and/or Wendinu, Shurikenger, or the Oboro family. Lothor is Marah, Kapri and Cam's uncle as well as Sensei Watanabe's brother.
  • Pet the Dog: In the Dino Thunder team-up, Lothor is annoyed to see Marah and Kapri joined the Wind Ninja Academy and tries to imprison them as well, but he spares them when they offered to help him again, and Lothor agreed but on a trial basis. It bites back at him, when Kapri and Marah only pretended to join his army to get close to him and free the captured Sensei Kanoi and the ninja students.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: A Double Subversion, as he is sealed in the Abyss at the end of the series, and then breaks out in the next season, during the team-up episode. By the end of that episode, after Lothor's plan fails, Dino Thunder's Big Bad Mesogog defeats him in a fight and seals him in a canister.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: One of the best examples of the franchise, he's fully aware he's trying to take over the world with the aid of total morons and just puts up with it. Just because it all plays into his endgame doesn't mean the whole process doesn't give him a migraine or two.
    • Partially subverted when it turns out that Marah and Kapri are actually highly intelligent and ruthless and just playing the morons.
  • That Man Is Dead: He renounced his identity as Kiya Watanabe before he was exiled into space.
  • Would Hit a Girl: In his youth, has no problem attacking Miko with his dark ninja powers, attacks the Blue Ranger who is a female and has no problem abandoning Marah and Kapri in his self-destroying ship.
  • Villain Has a Point: Mocks Hunter and Blake for believing him when he said that Sensei killed their parents. Hard to argue with him given that they readily believed him without any evidence.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: He has virtually everyone who has helped him with his Evil Plan killed, almost including Marah, Kapri and Cam.
  • You Killed My Father: He killed Blake and Hunter's adopted parents, then convinced them that Sensei was the real murderer.

    Marah & Kapri 

Marah & Kapri

Portrayed by: Katrina Devinenote  (Marah) and Katrina Brownenote  (Kapri)
Voiced by: Rocío Mallo (Marah) and Ariadna Rivas (Kapri) (Latin American Spanish)

Lothor: "Take your nieces for the summer," they told me. "They won't be any trouble," they said.

Lothor's ditzy and fashion-conscious nieces who aspire to be members of their uncle’s army.

  • Adaptational Comic Relief: Downplayed as their basis are still comedic goofy villains, especially next to most of their fellow villains but Wendinu is also The Vamp and Furabijo is a Psychopathic Manchild with both girls having legitimate moments of competence despite their usual bumbling (mostly Wendinu). Here, they're portrayed as a pair of "Well Done, Daughter!" Girls.
  • Adaptational Heroism: Not really heroism per se, but Wendinu and Furabijo never bothered to pull a Heel–Face Turn, preferring to resume their "mischief" on the Hurricanegers and Gouraigers in VS Abaranger and 10 Years After even after Jakanja is destroyed.
  • Adaptational Modesty: Kapri's costume is more or less the same as Wendinu's, but with her chest covered up.
  • Adaptational Personality Change: Their Sentai counterparts are much more effective in doing their jobs than them.
  • Ambiguously Absent Parent: Marah and Kapri's parents are never seen and mentioned only once throughout Ninja Storm and they are stated to be Lothor's nieces, not his daughter, and they are definitely not the daughters of Kanoi's as Cam is their cousin, and Cam is Kanoi’s son. Lothor says that he is their uncle only by marriage, suggesting Lothor was once married.
  • The Baronesses: They try to be the Sexpot variety at times, with Kapri attempting the Rosa Klebb personality, but they're too immature and incompetent to really count as either.
  • Bratty Teenage Nieces: Only by marriage (hinted at in the premiere and later confirmed in Dino Thunder).
  • Bumbling Henchmen Duo: They try to be, but they always fail when given a chance to prove themselves. That turns out to have been the plan all along, though.
  • Color Motif: Kapri's is pink and orange for Marah, they even wear their signature colors in their ninja uniforms after joining the Wind Academy.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: They can be amazingly competent, under the right circumstances.
  • Dark Action Girl: They occasionally show themselves to be competent fighters.
  • Dark Magical Girl: They lack a Magical Girl to contrast but they have other components such as seeking their uncle's approval, lacking any friends save each other and a Heel–Face Turn when a Ranger offers to accept them as family. Though one could say they contrast Cam because his relationship with Kanoi is the opposite of their's to Lothor's.
  • Dating Catwoman: Marah does this with Dustin in "All About Beevil". While she later invokes The Only One Allowed to Defeat You meaning that she wasn't pulling a Heel–Face Turn for their sake, she isn't all that happy when everyone congratulates her on such a perfect plot later, which prompts Kapri to tease her.
    You like him!
    • Later on in the finale, Marah asks Cam if Dustin's still mad at her for the whole backstabbing thing, at least partially confirming feelings on her end.
  • The Ditz: Silly, airheaded and incompetent, most of the time.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: They were pretty grossed out that Lothor had General Trayf's remains cooked for a barbecue. The incident even made Marah decide to be a vegetarian.
  • Failure Is the Only Option: The entire season they're belittled by their uncle for not being evil and competent. Once they prove to him otherwise, he says he can't trust them and leaves them to die.
  • Good Costume Switch: After their Heel–Face Turn, they drop their alien ninja outfits and adopt their natural hair color (blonde for Kapri and brunette for Marah). In the PRNS/PRDT Team-up, when they pretend to rejoin Lothor's army, he changes their outfits and hairstyles back to their villainous ones and later they drop them for good, when they revealed to their cousin Cam and the other rangers they were only pretended to be evil to rescue the ninja students and Sensei Kanoi
  • Heel–Face Turn: at the end of the series.
  • High-Heel–Face Turn: Marah and Kapri are the only Ninja Storm villains who turn good at the season's end.
  • Love at First Sight: Marah finds Dustin cute from the first time she lays eyes on him, well before their Dating Catwoman dynamic develops.
  • Master of Disguise: In several episodes, the sisters employ an Unlimited Wardrobe and various different hairstyles to interact with the Power Rangers incognito. How successful said disguises are varies, but the two have some talent (particularly Kapri, especially the time she impersonates a male doctor).
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: Revealed that much of their ditzy persona has all been an act, they're far smarter and capable than they've been letting on and wanted to be underestimated. However, they do retain their Valley Girl personalities.
  • Perky Female Minions: Marah certainly is. Kapri seems more vindictive than her sister.
  • Related in the Adaptation: They're sisters as well Lotor's nieces, Cam's cousins and Sensei Watanabe's nieces as well; Wendinu and Furabijo have no familial relation with each other, Tau Zant, Shurikenger or the Oboro family in Hurricaneger.
  • The Starscreams: They tried to pull this out of Obfuscating Stupidity. As a result, they were left to die in Lothor's self-destructing base in "Storm Before The Calm", but Cam, Hunter and Blake saved their bacons. Double Subverted as Lothor admits he told them to, but felt they were a little to enthusiastic about it. They were able to pull it off more successfully in the Dino Thunder crossover, resulting in Sensei being freed just in time to keep the Brainwashed and Crazy Wind Ninjas from wreaking havoc on their Dino Thunder counterparts.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: They survived the season unlike their Hurricanger counterparts.
  • Tangled Family Tree: Marah and Kapri are Lothor's nieces by marriage, but it's unclear whether their aunt/uncle used to be married to Lothor, married an unmentioned Watanabe sibling, or was Lothor's sister-in-law (Cam's mother).
  • Unwitting Pawn: By the end of the series, Marah and Kapri have come to realize that Lothor is using them for his plan to open the Abyss of Evil.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: When Tori's Dolphin Zord bites Kapri's zord, the latter says that she hates fish. However Kapri's worst fear is spiders, while Marah's is being laughed at.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: In the finale, Lothor abandons Marah and Kapri, along with Cam, on his self-destructing ship after activating the Abyss of Evil.
  • Your Makeup Is Running: After Marah's pet fish dies, her mascara runs down her face and she goes through several dozen tissues crying after her pet fish dies. In another episode, both girls have their makeup smeared when they get sprayed with a hose.


    In General 

  • Adaptational Wimp: This applies to their revived versions in the final battle, although the original generals also suffered Conservation of Ninjutsu, they were still powerful enough that 5 rangers had to work as a team to defeat them, in this version instead, Shane defeats 4 of them with relative ease.

Will there never be a day that is marked for victory? Will I always have to suffer at the hands of the Power Rangers? Tell me, when will it end?

A kabuki robot and Lothor's main general. He's one of the few serious villains, and often has to keep his boss and his fellow generals on-track when it comes to battling the Rangers. He would fight the Rangers on his own on both the ground, and in the Megazord battles with his own series of Zords.

  • All There in the Manual: The toyline states he's actually an ant-like alien creature controlling a mechanical body on the inside (like his Hurricanger counterpart). Nothing in the series even remotely suggests such a thing. The tiny alien creature controlling a mechanical body on the inside idea was used for General Tynamon in Power Rangers (Super) Ninja Steel
  • Bowdlerize: His death scene is a bit less violent than in Hurricaneger, editing out Vexacus stabbing him in the gut.
  • The Dragon: Lothor's second in command and the only one who seems to take defeating the Rangers seriously.
  • Dual Wielding: He wields two swords stored in his shoulders.
  • The Evil Genius: He makes robots, enlarges the Monster of the Week and does the scheming.
  • Hyper-Competent Sidekick: Is, at least early on, the main reason why Lothor's plans tended to work.
  • No Mouth: He often finds himself mocked for this.
  • Not So Above It All: Zurgane is typically The Comically Serious Only Sane Man of Lothor's army, but he drops this persona at times.
    • He displays some dancing moves for his fellow villains on two occasions. The first time Lothor orders him to to improve morale, but the second time he does so on his own accord and clearly enjoys it.
    • He laughs at a sarcastic quip Lothor makes while chewing out Choobo.
    • He introduces a new monster (General Trayf) in the style of a fight promoter.
  • Only Sane Man: Until Vexacus joined, he was the only villain who took the Rangers seriously and his plans and ideas were more successful. He's the only villain, one of the few in the franchise, who suggested attacking the Rangers when they can't morph.
  • Spell My Name With An S: Zurgane is a literal translation of his Japanese name, Sargain.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: Even more so than his boss.
  • Undying Loyalty: No matter how... odd Lothor's plans and mannerisms are, Zurgane never ceases his loyalty and fears disappointing him.
  • A Villain Named "Z__rg": The first syllable in his name is pronounced Zurg.
  • Villainous Breakdown: He suffers one during the finale of "General Deception." Considering what happened to him immediately afterward, it doubles as Tempting Fate.
  • Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?: Zurgane urges Lothor to kill the captured Thunder Rangers rather than brainwash them.
  • Wrecked Weapon: Both of his swords are broken when he is mortally wounded by Vexacus.



Voiced by: Bruce Hopkins, David Lodge (Power Rangers: Super Legends), Jorge Ornelas (Latin American Spanish)

Blake: He's not technically an intelligent life-form...

Lothor's green-skinned lieutenant. The Butt-Monkey of Lothor's army, not particularly bright but with a lot of strength.

  • Adaptational Personality Change: Choobo is a Dumb Muscle with the personality of a Momma's Boy. Chuzubo on the other hand, is not.
  • Adaptational Dumbass: His Sentai counterpart is a Genius Bruiser.
  • The Brute: Choobo is the dumb and powerful comic relief. Outside of his plan against the Thunder Rangers, he's mostly there for laughs until the finale.
  • Dumb Muscle: Blake's quote above says everything you need to know about him.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: Choobo is an incredibly unlucky dimwit who doesn't take part in many battles, but he also strikes some significant blows against the heroes.
    • He's the one who shrinks and captures all of the other ninja students in the premiere.
    • He's willing to help kill Marah and Kapri in the finale.
    • He tricks the Thunder Rangers into being brainwashed.
    • After Lothor banishes him, he steals a scroll of empowerment and almost defeats the Rangers.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here: In the finale, Choobo flees Lothor's ship after it's rigged to self-destruct.
  • Simpleton Voice: As per usual with fat Power Rangers villains.
  • Spell My Name With An S: Like Zurgane above, Choobo is a direct translation of Chuzubo.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: Chuzubo is the first of the Jakanja to die, and that's even before Shurikenger comes into play. Here, Choobo is merely shrunken after his great plot to turn the Thunder Rangers back against the Wind Rangers fails. He returns to normal a few episodes later, and is demoted back to comic relief.
  • Uncertain Doom: Interestingly, he's not shown exploding when hit by Shane's Battlizer, and he's never shown being thrown into the abyss like the other villains. There's the possibility he just chose to run away, or his defeat was just off screen.
  • Villainous Crush: In the filler "Snip It, Snip It Good", one line suggests he has one for Tori. However, unlike most examples, he doesn't make moves on her or become an Abhorrent Admirer towards her, though given his personality it's unlikely he'd have gone through with it.
  • You Have Failed Me: In "Return of Thunder", Lothor banishes him from his ship once he finds out about Choobo's plans.

I don't have time to waste with an over-the-hill ninja warlord.

A shark themed bounty hunter, Vexacus originally came to Earth to hunt for Skyla and take her powers. However, after Shane gained them, he joined Lothor's forces as the head general, although he himself had plans to take the latter out for his own goals.

  • Adaptational Wimp: His sentai counterpart Sandaaru is a master manipulator and enough of a threat he usurps his master, Tau Zant and is effectively the Big Bad of the final stretch of the series. In contrast, Vexacus is still cunning and competent, but gets totally outplayed, manipulated and disposed of by Tau Zant's Power Rangers counterpart Lothor.
  • Arch-Enemy: To Shane Clarke.
  • BFS: He wields a long, nasty-looking sword.
  • Bounty Hunter: Self-described, although he's only hunting Skyla so he can take her power for himself. After Shane destroys his spaceship, he joins up with Lothor for lack of any other options.
  • Bowdlerize: Him and the Thunder Megazord stabbing each other was (rather clumsily) edited to have them slash each other instead.
  • Comically Serious: In contrast to the more Laughably Evil characters of the series, this provides his moments of levity thanks to his serious nature.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Almost every fight he takes part in has him dishing out these.
  • Dragon with an Agenda: Takes this place in Lothor's army after his debuts.
  • Knight of Cerebus: The shows rears into dark territory once he arrives. He murders Skyla, his plans are more menacing, he's the strongest of Luthor's generals, and he even attempts to betray his own generals to become a serious typical Power Rangers villain.
  • Noodle Incident: He has a nasty history with Lothor.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Takes down Zurgane and Motodrone this way.
  • Team Killer: He takes out Zurgane and Motodrone on his way up the ladder to Lothor.
  • Threatening Shark: He can summon a "land shark" construct to ride on. He even looks like one.
  • The Sociopath: Even Lothor, with his own hidden master plan and rather callous regard for his own family, is unable to come to his level given his Laughably Evil demeanor, which Vexacus doesn't have.
  • The Starscream: He was planning on it, but was taken out by the Rangers ahead of time. Ultimately revealed to be part of Lothor's Evil Plan.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Shane was able to hold out against him in his debut, even when a fight with him using Ninja Sword Gold Mode. Vexacus' later fights have him easily defeating the Rangers single-handedly.
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: Although Ninja Storm is the first Power Rangers series to have a truly light-hearted tone, Vexacus is still a very dark and dangerous villain - he destroyed both Zurgane and Motodrone on screen, tried to upstage Lothor as leader and never showed any remorse for any of his comrades.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: By the end of the series, he disposes of virtually all the generals as part of Lothor's plan to open the Abyss of Evil.

Shimazu: In my day, a general had to earn his rank!
Motodrone: In your day, they fought with wooden sticks and horses.

Perry was a motorcycle mechanic that, in a freak accident, became Motodrone, a mutant mechanical entity. While Hunter was able to save Perry from his alternate personality, Zurgane took the scrapped parts and rebuilt Motodrone into a new general.

  • Adaptational Late Appearance: Motodrone's Hurricenger counterpart appeared in the premiere episode. Here, Motodrone appears well into the second half of Ninja Storm.
  • Adaptational Species Change: Manmaruba was an insectoid alien who metamorphosed into various forms, Motodrone is instead a cyborg that was once a human.
  • Adapted Out: Manmaruba's first form, a small insect, was not adapted as either a form of his or a separate character.
  • A.I. Is a Crapshoot: Perry wanted "the perfect rider", but it turned out to be a supervillain and went real bad after he merged with his intelligence. Go figure.

You have a lot to learn, warrior. You can start with respecting your elders!

An ancient warlord that attacked the local village 2,000 years ago, he was accidentally awakened during a battle between the Green Ranger and Motodrone, and immediately joined Lothor's forces.

  • Adaptational Jerkass: Satarakura is more of a comic relief villain than The Starscream in Hurricanger and even his brief treacherous stint was out of loyalty to Sandaaru than his own ambitions.
  • The Beastmaster: Shimazu can control a trio of wolf monsters called the Wolfblades.
  • The Comically Serious: Like Vexacus, he attempts to use his expertise as a former Japanese warlord as a threat, easily capable of defeating four rangers at once. His calm, sneaky, and cunning nature are indeed notable, but in a series where the comic relief characters have more prevalence, he's often seen as the butt of jokes.
  • Death by Irony: He allies himself with Marah and Kapri to save himself from Vexacus, only to be killed by them under Vexacus' orders.
  • Elite Mooks: His Wolfblades are in between the strength of the Kelzaks and a Monster of the Week.
  • Taken for Granite: Until the crossfire from a battle brought him back to life.
  • The Hyena: Shimazu laughs a lot.
  • The Starscream: He is this, to Zurgane and Lothor, alongside Vexacus, starting in the two-part episode "General Deception".

Other Members



Lothor's personal foot soldiers.
  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: Each Kelzak features a red centipede on their face.
  • The Bus Came Back: A few of them returned in the next season's crossover Thunder Storm.
  • Canon Immigrant: The Kelzak Furies were Power Rangers exclusive foot soldiers.
  • Devious Daggers: Each Kelzak wields a dagger as their main weapon.
  • Elite Mooks: Monster of the Week Beevil created her own squad of Kelzaks called the Kelzak Furies, which were three times stronger than an average Kelzak.
  • Hand Blast: Some are capable of firing energy blasts from their hands.
  • Mooks: For Lothor's army.

    The Monsters 

In General:

  • Adapted Out: Gliding Ninja Musasabisutaru is the only Hurricaneger monster not to be adapted for the series, not even as a cameo.
  • Adaptational Species Change: Like with Lost Galaxy, Ninja Storm decided to throw away the faction-based monsters from the Sentai and have the monsters under one banner. note 
  • Back from the Dead: All of them (minus Inflatron and Eyezak) were brought back in the finale.
  • Conservation of Ninjutsu: Throughout the season, even the "weak" were still strong enough to take on a Ranger one on one. When they all return as an army in the season finale, they are so easily defeated that they are virtually indistinguishable from the Kelzaks.
  • Degraded Boss: They all return to fill the role of Mooks in the final battle.
