     Our Heroes 

Jack Landors / B-Squad SPD Red Ranger | (Actor: Brandon Jay McLaren)
Voiced by: Ryuji Sainei (Japanese dub), Scott McShane (Power Rangers: Super Legends)

Sky. Heroes come in all colors.

Jack, along with his friend Z, was a thief that stole clothes for the homeless, but when Emperor Gruumm appeared to attack Earth, Commander Cruger approached the two to join SPD. While initially reluctant at first, he eventually joined B-Squad as the Red Ranger and leader. He also has the ability to travel through solid objects.

  • Conscience Makes You Go Back: When their second fight with Sky, Bridge and Syd goes south, he and Z don't hesitate to run when the Troobian robots attack, but as they're fleeing he has a bout of conscience and goes back to help them. Keep in mind, he was still wholly against joining Cruger while Z (who would jump at the chance to join when offered) tried to remind him they were trying to arrest them and that it wasn't their fight.
  • Delinquent: At first.
  • Drunk with Power: Briefly when he learns Red Ranger equals team leader. Cruger quickly puts him in his place once the rest of the team point out their grievances.
    Cruger: A true leader leads by example. Did you set that example?
    Jack: ...No. No, I was too busy taking advantage of my position.
  • Guns Akimbo: His Delta Blasters, which can combine into a bigger gun.
  • The Hero: Leader of the B-Squad Rangers.
  • Intangible Man: His genetic ability.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: Which is why he's retired once the Big Bad is defeated.
  • Just Like Robin Hood: He steals things to give it to poor people.
  • Law of Chromatic Superiority: As usual, he gets the Battlizer.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: With Z.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Sky's blue, literally.
  • Refusal of the Call: He was a much harder sell than Z, and indeed he only originally joined because he saw Z was in trouble on a mission.
  • Rookie Red Ranger: To Sky's frustration. Justified, as Sky, who was first in line to be leader, failed a Secret Test of Character, and Doggy quickly realized that had he been made leader, he would've gone on an ego trip. He's such a rookie, in fact, that he didn't even know being the Red Ranger made him the leader, and Doggy ends up temporarily relieving him of command when he goes on an ego trip himself and only giving it back when he learns his lesson.
  • Super Mode: The S.P.SD Battlizer, which features both a Cyber Mode and a more armored Sonic Mode.
  • Trading Bars for Stripes: He was a criminal captured by Sky, Bridge, and Syd before being recruited. It should be noted that he initially turned down the chance to join, only changing his mind when Z was in trouble.

Schuyler "Sky" Tate / B-Squad SPD Blue Ranger | (Actor: Chris Violette)

Promoted to Red Ranger in the season finale, then to Commander of the Earth forces, as revealed in Power Rangers Operation Overdrive
Voiced by: Tsuyoshi Hayashi (Japanese dub)

You think being a Power Ranger is all about roundhouse kicks and being a hero? It's also about hard work and doing what you're told.

Sky trained with Bridge and Syd as part of B-Squad, and always wanted to become the Red Ranger like his late father. However, his rising arrogance caused Crugar to grant him the Blue Ranger powers instead, making him frustrated along with the fact that Jack, a former thief, was named the Red Ranger instead. He also has the ability to create forcefields.

  • Barrier Warrior: His genetic ability.
  • By-the-Book Cop: Very much.
  • Character Development: Perhaps the best developed of the rangers this series, as he goes from something of a Jerk Jock to a more pure hero.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Has his moments towards the end of the series.
  • Defrosting Ice King: Somewhat. It takes a lot of work.
  • Dislikes the New Guy: More than anyone else, Sky is dissatisfied with Jack joining his team at the start of the series.
  • Hard Work Hardly Works: Justified, because despite all of his hard work his arrogance made unsuitable to be the Red Ranger. A chunk of Sky's character development is losing that arrogance.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: He may not have been nice about it but Sky wasn't wrong in "Confronted" that Jack was abusing his position as a Red Ranger a sentiment that everyone else on the team shared including Z who was Jack's oldest friend.
  • The Lancer: And he didn't like it to be his role at first.
  • Leader Wannabe: He achieves his goal in the finale.
  • Meaningful Name: He's the Blue Ranger. Ironically, all he ever wanted was to be Red. It goes into Fridge Brilliance territory when we realize that the Sky is Blue during the day, then becomes Red by the end of the day (The end of the series). Then, by night (some point post-series), it becomes black, matching the Commander's longcoats.
  • Military Brat: His dad was a fallen SPD Red Ranger whose battle suit resembles Wes's.
  • Quickly Demoted Leader: Thanks to failing a test of character Cruger gave him. He redeems himself at the end of the series when Cruger subjects him to the same test and he passes it after having learned his lesson.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Jack's red, literally.
  • Tall, Dark, and Snarky: Often has a quip at the ready, particularly when Bridge or Jack get up to things.

Bridge Carson / B-Squad SPD Green Ranger | (Actor: Matt Austin)

Promoted to Blue Ranger in the season finale, then to Red, as shown in Power Rangers Operation Overdrive.
Voiced by: Yousuke Ito (Japanese dub)

Wait. I ask long, drawn-out questions?

Bridge trained with Sky and Syd as part of B-Squad, and was the analytical of the group, despite his oddness. When Emperor Gruumm attacked Earth, he was given the Green Ranger powers. He also has the ability to ready out people's energy readings.

  • Adorkable: He's the most energetic, friendly and quirky of the B Squad.
  • Bat Deduction: As highlighted in "A-Bridged," he was right all along. It was just the way he went about investigating the suspect and gathering clues was... unique. Of course, what the other Rangers consider "unique" others would call actual investigative and detective techniques.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Despite his eccentric and wacky demeanor, Bridge is able to get the job done in no time as a competent SPD cadet.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: His crime-solving methods are certainly... unorthodox.
  • Composite Character: Keeping the comparison to the source material, Bridge has Umeko's quirkiness, Jasmine's psychic abilities and Sen-chan's odd investigation methods (Up to Eleven) and Thinking Pose de aru.
  • Memetic Hand Gesture: He is physically compelled to wiggle his fingers when saying "Buttery." He can't stop himself, even when he tries.
    Sky: He can't help himself. It's ingrained in his cellular makeup.
    Bridge: That's ridiculous. I can say "buttery" without - (wiggles fingers)
  • Motor Mouth: When he really gets into his rambling.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: A tradition held by most green rangers.
  • Psychic Powers: His genetic power is Aura Vision.
  • Putting On My Thinking Cap: Like his Super Sentai counterpart Sen-chan, Bridge uses headstands in order to concetrate better.
  • Real Life Writes the Plot: Kinda. Bridge's gloves cover up the actor's tattoos, but they serve as his Power Limiter in-show.
  • Rule of Three: 3 was his original number designation before he was promoted to the Blue and Red S.P.D rangers.
  • The Smart Guy: Although Kat is SPD's head scientist, Bridge tends to do some science on his own when the situation depends on it.
  • Story-Breaker Power: Generally averted, but his Aura Vision would've easily resolved "Recognition" fairly quickly - especially during the Spot the Imposter confrontation. Unsurprisingly, neither he nor anyone else thought to make use of it... at all.
  • Thinking Tic: When he wants to do some serious thinking, Bridge does a full handstand. He claims the blood rushing to his head makes him think better.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In Overdrive, Sentinel Knight summons him from an unspecified point post-series where he's the new Red Ranger (with Sky the Earth Commander, Doggy Supreme Commander, and Fowler retired).
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Buttery toast. *wiggle fingers*

Elizabeth "Z" Delgado / B-Squad SPD Yellow Ranger | (Actress: Monica May)
Voiced by: Ayumi Kinoshita (Japanese dub), Kim Mai Guest (Power Rangers: Super Legends)

It kind of gave me that warm and fuzzy feeling inside... that I hate so much.

Z, along with her friend Jack, was a thief that stole clothes for the homeless, but when Emperor Gruumm appeared to attack Earth, Commander Crugar approached the two to join SPD. She immediately took the offer, and joined B-Squad as the Yellow Ranger. She also has the ability to create holograms of herself.

  • Delinquent: At first.
  • Jumped at the Call: Unlike Jack, she wanted to join SPD the moment the offer was made. It helps she repeatedly stated she wanted to do more to make a difference than just be Robin Hood.
  • Just Like Robin Hood: Along with Jack, they stole to give to the poor.
  • Me's a Crowd: Her genetic power.
  • One-Letter Name: Although "Z" is actually a nickname.
  • One Steve Limit: It's not the first time there's been a Delgado on the team. This led to a fun little bit of Fanon. When you factor in the show's timeline, Z's age, her eagerness to join the team and her similarities to the actors who played Danny and Kendall on Wild Force, you end up with a lot of fans who like to assume that Z is their daughter (which leaves the unfortunate question of how she ended up an orphan.)
    • Actually, and rather sadly, a simple answer is that someone tried to kidnap her for her powers, Danny and Kendall tried to save her and, well...
  • Platonic Life-Partners: With Jack. They grew up on the streets together.
  • Spicy Latina: A very mild example but she is a little sassy.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Tomboy to Syd's Girly Girl.

Sydney "Syd" Drew / B-Squad SPD Pink Ranger | (Actress: Alycia Purrott)
Voiced by: Mika Kikuchi (Japanese dub)

Okay. I'm filthy, cranky, and my new shoes are trashed. Do you really wanna mess with me?

Syd trained with Sky and Bridge as part of B-Squad, and came from a well off family. When Emperor Gruumm attacked Earth, she was given the Pink Ranger powers. He also has the ability to turn her hand into any material she grasps.

Commander Anubis "Doggie" Cruger / SPD Shadow Ranger | (Actor: John Tui)

Eventually promoted to Supreme Commander, as revealed in Power Rangers Operation Overdrive
Voiced by: Tetsu Inada (Japanese dub), Darryl Kurylo (Power Rangers: Super Legends)

You have taken what was dearest to me, Benaag - but that has only made me stronger. I am SHADOW RANGER!

Originally from the planet Sirius, Cruger was part of the original SPD when Emperor Gruumm attacked his planet. However, despite their best efforts, he was the lone survivor of Gruumm's attack, and lost his wife, who he believed was killed. Years later, he became the commander of the Earth Branch of SPD, and served as the mentor to both the A and B Squad Rangers. Eventually, he joined the fight as the Shadow Ranger.

  • The Ace: As the Shadow Ranger, he easily out classes the B-Squad in combat.
  • A Father to His Men: The Rangers definitely come to see him as this, especially when he joins them in the field. As the series goes on, he pulls back somewhat in order to give the Rangers more independence, just as a real father would.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: He's not afraid to lead his troops in combat, although as the series progresses, he accompanies them less to give them more independence in battle.
  • Archenemy: He and Gruumm are this to each other.
  • Beast Man: Sort of of a dog man, if dogs had blue scales.
  • Berserk Button:
    • He doesn't like people mocking his dead comrades or his lost homeworld. It took great restraint from laying a hand on Commander Fowler when he does this.
    • Do NOT hurt his Rangers. Due to the above, he will take it very personally.
  • Big Good: To the Earth branch of the SPD (and the SPD as a whole as of Operation Overdrive)
  • Commanding Coolness: His rank is "Commander".
  • Cool Sword: His Shadow Saber.
  • Good Is Not Nice: Cruger is a no-nonsense leader of a large organization, he doesn't hold back when he has to lay down the law.
  • Heroic BSoD: Prior to becoming Shadow Ranger, he stays out of open combat situations due to losing his troops on planet Cyrius.
  • Heroic Dog: Yes, he's humanoid, but he's still a canine, so it counts.
  • Implacable Man: In the finale, he just casually walks through Mora's last attempts at monster summoning, destroying every monster with a single stroke.
  • It Has Been an Honor: He states this word-for-word in the last episode when he and the Rangers are powerless and surrounded by Grumm's minions. Fortunately, Piggy has pulled a Heel–Face Turn by then, and shows up to rescue them.
  • Last of His Kind: Or so he thinks
  • Magic Feather: Doggie gives Jack his Shadow Saber in order to fend off a Master Swordsman Monster of the Week. Turns out it was a standard issue practice sword in disguise.
  • Master Swordsman: He's also teaching Jack some of his skills.
  • Meaningful Name: His real name is Anubis and he's a...
  • One-Man Army: His debut as the Shadow Ranger had Doggie fighting off one hundred Mooks solo, and wasting all of them.
  • Papa Wolf: Endangering his Rangers is a very bad idea.
  • Sixth Ranger / Aloof Ally: Though he's less active alongside the rangers after Omega joins. The latter is justified since he doesn't want the rangers to depend on him so much.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Just a reminder: Kruger, with a K, is his Dekaranger counterpart.

Sam / SPD Omega Ranger | (Actor: Aaron James Murphy; voice actor: Brett Stewart)
Voiced by: Tomokazu Yoshida (Japanese dub), Yuri Lowenthal (Power Rangers: Super Legends)

In the present, Sam was a child that could teleport objects to different locations. After being used by Mora and Bugglesworth, he joined SPD as a young recruit. Years later Sam became the Omega Ranger, and traveled back to 2025 to stop Morgana from destroying the Earth. While the time travel caused his body to be trapped in a light sphere when unmorphed, he continues to fight with his friends.

  • Adaptational Nice Guy: He starts as a Smug Super, but aside from that he is far more polite to the core rangers than his counterpart.
  • Ball of Light Transformation: After the time travel caused him to become a light orb. He can regain a solid, humanoid body form when he morphs into the Omega Ranger.
  • Composite Character: In Dekaranger, the kid with teleporting powers and the Sixth Ranger were separate characters.
  • Commuting on a Bus: See below.
  • Demoted to Extra: He was demoted compared to his counterpart DekaBreak from the source material. Disney forced a Fake Shemp situation that the writers didn't want to deal with, and they wouldn't have included Omega Ranger at all if they weren't stuck with so much DekaBreak Stock Footage.
  • Flat Character: Due to being he is Demoted to Extra and only appearing during fights, he has next to no real characterization to speak of.
  • Future Badass: He's from the future.
  • Mysterious Protector: At first. It took the Rangers a while to find out he'd been around for some time.
  • Power Fist: The Omega Morpher acts like this, giving him access to different abilities.
  • Set Right What Once Went Wrong: Was sent back in time to stop SPD from being defeated by Devastation to avert his Bad Future. Unlike the Blue Senturion, he actually succeeds in his first appearance. He just continues fighting alongside the present-day Rangers until Nova comes to pick him up.
  • Sixth Ranger: Seventh to be exact. The first official Seventh Ranger. However, he acts more on the battlefield compared to Cruger, and is the first to help the Rangers.
  • Smug Super: Starts out as this, as his tech is miles beyond what the other SPD characters have.

SPD Nova Ranger | (Actress: Antonia Prebble)
Voiced by: Shizuka Ito (Japanese dub)

A friend of Sam that traveled back to 2025 when she was worried about him. She traveled just in time for the final fight against Emperor Gruumm.


     Their Friends 

Boom | (Actor: Kelson Henderson)
Voiced by: Yasuhiro Takato (Japanese dub)

I'd be psyched if I were the Red Ranger!
You'd be psyched if you were the Pink Ranger...!
(Beat) True...

A former SPD cadet who flunked out of the Academy only a few days in and serves as Kat's assistant and Chief Gadget Tester.

  • Ascended Fanboy: He's a fanboy, all right, but the "Ascended" part is averted; he's one of the few cast members that doesn't get a morpher at some point.
  • Badass Normal: Despite getting kicked out of the academy, not being a Ranger and never showing superhuman abilities, Boom proves his skills during the final battle with a Rousing Speech and manages to get through without a scratch on him. Of note is the fact that in the first episode, he was throwing around the three best students at the academy like they were rag-dolls during a training simulation.
  • Rousing Speech: Delivers one before the final battle, convincing everyone to stay and fight. Oddly enough, this speech has more of a Go Ye Heroes, Go and Die vibe, yet no one runs away after he gives it.
  • The Chew Toy: He tends to be on the receiving end of Kat's experiments, regardless of whether or not it was intended to do something painful to him.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: From start to finish, though he does have his moments.

Dr. Kat Manx / SPD Kat Ranger | (Actress: Michelle Langstone)
Voiced by: Rie Tanaka (Japanese dub)

Tell me I didn't just fry the Quantum Enhancer. TELL ME I didn't just fry the Quantum Enhancer!

A humanoid cat alien that serves as SPD's head scientist, creating the Ranger powers back in the year 2001. At one point, she became the Kat Ranger after using a morpher provided by Supreme Commander Birdie.

R.I.C. (Robotic Interactive Canine)

A robotic canine that serves as the Rangers Canine Cannon after being upgraded into R.I.C. 2.0. He later served as Jack's Battlizer armor after another upgrade.

  • BFG: He turns into one, aka the Canine Cannon.
  • Big Friendly Dog: Robotic version.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: At first.
  • Do-Anything Robot: Even after he was rebuilt, he had a list of auxiliary functions a mile long.
  • Heroic Dog: He's a heroic robot dog.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: He Gets Better though.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: They wanted to junk R.I.C., but rebuilt him instead. Besides the help and saves he gave throughout the series, in the final episodes, summoning R.I.C. freed Kat and Boone after Broodwing's takeover of the S.P.D. Base/Zord, enabling them to shutdown power to the Zord, enabling B-Squad to overcome A-Squad, Broodwing, and Broodwing's Generals. The outcome of the series rested on loyalty to a dog they wanted to put down.
  • Robot Dog: He's a robot and shaped and programmed as dog.
  • Team Pet: To SPD.
  • There Was a Door: The first time they use his tracking capabilities, he's so eager to go he crashes through a metal door while it's still closed. Later in the episode, when he hears Syd is in trouble, he smashes through the now-fixed door again.
    Cruger: I just had that fixed.
  • We Can Rebuild Him: After his damaged saving Syd, he was to be thrown away. Syd was too grateful that she got Bridge and Boom to rebuild him. He becomes both a finishing weapon and Jack's Battlizers.

Sergeant Silverback | (Voice actor: John Tui)
Voiced by: Kanji Suzumori (Japanese dub)

You belong to me! Say it! Say it like your freedom depends on it!

A gorilla like alien, and SPD's drill sergeant who trained the B-Squad rangers in order to access the SWAT Mode.

Supreme Commander Fowler "Birdy" | (Voice actor: Paul Norell)
Voiced by: Yutaka Nakano (Japanese dub)

I still think there are certain areas in which S.P.D. could be, for example, the Supreme Commander staying out of his best commander's business.

The Supreme Commander of SPD, and Cruger's boss.

Piggy | (Actor: Barnie Duncan)
Voiced by: Shintaro Ohata (Japanese dub)

What have I done? I'm a filthy, slime-ridden, low-life, worm-eating vermin! All right, so I was that before I betrayed the Rangers.

A friend of Z's who serves as an informant of SPD. However, he secretly works for Emperor Gruumm and Broodwing.

Sophie | (Actress: Natacha Hutchison)
Voiced by: Eri Gouda (Japanese dub)
A D-Squad cadet. She's secretly an android.


Voiced by: Mark Wright
An intergalactic bounty hunter in search of Hydrax, but was mistaken as a criminal by the Rangers.
  • Anti-Villain: He was a bounty hunter that was looking for the real bank robber. He only fought against the Rangers due to the Rangers (minus Bridge) thinking he was the bank robber, and that Broodwing forced him to grow giant sized.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: He has one on his wrist that is strong enough to cut through steel.
  • Reality Ensues: Even if he was not the bank robber, he was still punished for causing destruction around New Tech City, albeit being banned from going back to Earth instead of being confined in a card like Hydrax.
  • The Scapegoat: Was made to be the bank robber due to the Ranger's wrong interpretation, and that Hydrax tried to frame him.


Voiced by: Jeremy Birchall
An samurai themed alien landed in Kyoto, Japan many years ago. He is brought to the future through a time portal.
  • Anti-Villain: Yeah he did fight against the Rangers, but only because Broodwing manipulated him.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: Due to originating from feudal Japan, Katana had no idea what a Power Ranger was. This made him easy for Broodwing to manipulate him.
  • Noble Demon: At one point, he knocked Jack's weapons out of his hands, only to give them back to him not long after.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: Despite being a Monster of the Week, his second time portal led to a ball of light exiting not long after he departed.

     Troobian Empire 

Emperor Gruumm | (Voice actor: Rene Naufahu)
Voiced by: Tetsuo Komura (Japanese dub)

You returned with nothing. Therefore, you shall be nothing. [..] I need another.

The leader of the Troobian Empire whose ultimate goal is to conquer other worlds. He sets Earth as his next target.

  • Archenemy: He and Cruger are this to each other.
  • Badass Biker: When he actually fights. Only Cruger outclasses him.
  • Blade on a Stick: His primary weapon.
  • Big Bad: Leader of the Troobian Empire who plans to take over the Earth. That said, he's revealed to have a master.
  • Comically Serious: In his interactions with Mora, doing things like forcing Broodwing into a tea party with her.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: His long enmity with Cruger comes from a battle where Cruger cut one of his horns off. He loses the other one in the Final Battle.
  • Enemy to All Living Things : Flowers wither in his presence when he first arrives to Earth.
  • Expy: Arguably to Fuhrer Hell Satan, considering his role in relation to Omni.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: Cruger cut off his right horn. Does little to diminish his appearance.
  • Galactic Conqueror: Has conquered many worlds, boasted entire galaxies, prior to coming to Earth. What he has for an army doesn't reflect this.
  • Genius Bruiser: He is a formidable fighter, and also a schemer who successfully got Cruger to send the A-Squad away from Earth by attack elsewhere before launching his invasion. Despite the defeats his underlings suffer, he manages to score victories by using a Monster of the Week as a distraction while he takes resources from Earth.
  • Get It Over With: "Show me no mercy, Cruger! No mercy!" Depending on your definition, Cruger doesn't - he lops off the other horn and imprisons him.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom / Red Eyes, Take Warning: His eyes are glowing red.
  • Guttural Growler: All of his dialogue is spoken with this voice.
  • Hidden Agenda Villain: He launches schemes that steal resources from Earth in addition to the typical Monster of the Week plans, which eventually causes the Rangers to realize he has a secret plan since he could just destroy the planet from orbit like he did to one he deemed of no value in the first episode. Turns out that was to build a body for Omni.
  • It's Personal: He harbors a longstanding personal grudge against Cruger relating to his missing horn. Said horn was chopped off by Cruger's Shadow Saber when the two faced each other in battle an unspecified number of years prior to the start of the series.
  • Hate Sink: He destroyed hundreds of planets, killed nearly the whole population of at least one (because of his personal grudge against Cruger), and treated his minions unfairly. He stands out as one of the most irredeemable villains in the history of the franchise.
  • Large Ham: You can count the number of times he doesn't ham up the scenery on your fingers.
  • Last Villain Stand: After the rest of his army has been defeated and captured and Omni has been destroyed, Gruumm emerges from the rubble and challenges Cruger to a final battle.
  • Orcus on His Throne: Naturally being a Power Rangers Big Bad, he rarely gets up to face the Rangers himself, but to his credit he is more active than the typical main villain for the franchise.
  • Original Generation: No Sentai counterpart for him.
  • Talking to Themself: Early in the series, there were brief moments where Gruumm would sit alone in a dark room, seemingly talking with himself regarding the Rangers and how to defeat them. The end of Shadow Part 2 reveals that in reality, someone or something is in the room with him. It would later turn out to be the room in which he speaks with Omni.
  • The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: Insists that only he is allowed to defeat Cruger, to the point where he has told underlings to stay away from him because he wants to kill him himself.
  • Villain Has a Point: He decides to stop paying Broodwing for his services that his minions can't afford and demands free weapons, anathema to an Only in It for the Money arms dealer, but considering the fact that Gruumm was paying good money for robots and weapons that consistently get destroyed despite Broodwing's improvements and insistence otherwise, one can't blame him for deciding to stop throwing away money.
  • Villainous Valor: For all his faults, cowardice isn't one of them. Despite previously losing against Cruger, he relishes the chance to fight him again. Even when the rest of his army is defeated he refused to give up.
  • Wrecked Weapon: Cruger ends their final showdown fairly decisively by breaking his staff in two.
  • You Have Failed Me: He's not afraid to murder the people who fail him, be they his own robots or hired mercenaries.

Mora / Morgana | (Actress: Olivia James-Baird / Josephine Davidson)
Voiced by: Shizuka Ito (both forms, Japanese dub)

A 10 year old girl who serves as Gruumm's monster creator. Her real form is a young women named Morgana, although she hates being in that age.

  • Ambiguously Human: She looks human, though she's capable of bringing monsters to life and energy blasts. Although given the season's setting, she could be an alien.
  • Art Initiates Life: Can create monsters from her drawings.
  • Ascended Extra: Morgana's Dekaranger counterpart was simply one of the three villains of DekaBreak's introductory arc (explaining why she was active when Shorty and Devastation showed up) and later showed up in the Abaranger crossover. She's one of the core villains in SPD.
  • Bratty Half-Pint: As Mora, though she retains this personality as Morgana.
  • The Baroness: Morgana fits the sexpot variety, but for some reason sees herself as ugly and wants to remain young. She's also shown to have No Sense of Personal Space when she uses her body to pin Z against a tree after combat.
  • Creepy Child: As Mora.
  • Dark Action Girl: As Morgana.
  • The Dragon: Grumm's primary henchwoman throughout the series.
  • Dropped A Bridge On Her: She shows up in one scene in the last episode and is arrested, then not spoken of or referenced again.
  • Enfant Terrible: As Mora, displaying a total lack of regard for anyone else and treating people as toys.
  • Growing Up Sucks: So much that it is used as a punishment.
  • Immortal Immaturity: Quite literally wants to be a little kid forever, which would make her effectively immortal. She also keeps acting childish even when she is returned to being Morgana, which is implied to be her real form.
  • Inexplicably Awesome: How she is able to create monsters is never explained.
  • Not Even Bothering with the Accent: Compared to the other actors, her New Zealand accent really stands out.
  • Older Than They Look: Justified as Mora is actually an adult woman who wants to remain young.
  • Psychopathic Womanchild: As Morgana she retains much of Mora's childishness and all her sociopathy.
  • Tattooed Crook: She has a purple lightning bolt tattoo under her left eye. It's significance and how she got are never brought up.
  • Working for a Body Upgrade: Well, she considers it an upgrade.

Broodwing | (Voice actor: Jim McLarty)
Voiced by: Masami Iwasaki (Japanese dub)

That was not a very clever plan you had, Broodwing. If the Rangers find out about you. It may jeopardize my mission.
Understood your excellence. I'm just trying to make a living.
I do A LOT of business with you, did you show no allegiance? The highest bidder gets your devotion. I should end our relationship now… for your betrayal.
Or you could just pay me more.

A three-eyed vampire bat-like alien who is encased in an artificial environment as demonstrated by the jar on his head. He serves as the Troobian Empire's arms dealer, providing robots and weapons to use.

  • Arms Dealer: His job.
  • Badass Cape: His outfit has one.
  • Bat Out of Hell: He appears to be an alien bat monster. He has a swarm of bats follow him whose bites can cause growth.
  • Berserk Button: Not getting paid for his services, it's why he turns on Grumm.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: Once he turns against Grumm, he tries to conquer Earth himself. While Broodwing proves a legimate threat, he is never able to pose the same threat Grumm is.
  • Demoted to Extra: Like Gluto and Captain Mutiny before him, Broodwing's Sentai counterpart Agent Abrera was the big bad. Unlike Gluto, though, Broodwing actually did stuff.
  • Establishing Character Moment: The above conversation, quoted from "A-Bridged"; Broodwing's loyalty belongs to whoever pays him well enough.
  • Evil vs. Evil: He eventually turns against Gruumm, but only because he was pissed at Gruumm refusing to pay him. He's still against the Rangers partly because he knows defeating them would make Grumm look like a laughingstock, and partly because he knows he can't buy them off.
  • Make My Monster Grow: In a rare occurrence to a series that mostly averts this trope. Broodwing has a bat come from his swarm to bite the Monster of the Week, making the monster grow.
  • Only in It for the Money: Unlike most villains in Power Rangers, he just wants profit.
  • Smug Snake: He likes to talk a big game about his robots and weapons, but the Rangers keep tearing through them time and time again, no matter how powerful they are or who utilized them (even Broodwing himself couldn't beat them with one of his own robots). In fact, it was this little fact combined with the expensiveness of said arsenal that caused Gruumm to refuse to pay him anymore if his monsters can't afford it.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: Like every other bad guy who got confined to a card.
  • The Starscream: Unlike most versions, he's not interested in taking Grumm's place, but wanted him out as payback for refusing to pay for his services any longer.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Can shift his arms into a set of wings, or take the form of a swarm of bats.

Omni / The Magnificence | (Voice actor: Geoff Dolan)

A giant brain housed in a orb tank in a room on Gruumm's spacecraft, and the secret leader of the Troobian Army.

  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: The Magnificance as he calls it, a body that Grumm made from his ship. It's even larger than the Delta Command Megazord.
  • The Corrupter: Well, Mora was already evil, but exposure to Omni's gases made her lose interest in her childish ideals, even tossing away her doll.
  • Expy: A Composite Character of two characters from different Super Sentai series.
    • The majority of its character comes from The Omnipotent God, staying behind the scenes for the majority of the series, letting another villain (Emperor Grumm/Fuhrer Hell Satan) command in it's place, only to usurp said villain near the end.
    • The rest of it's attributes, however, come from Wicked Life God Dezumozorlya, acting as a replacement for the latter (who did not have a direct counterpart in Dino Thunder).
  • Generic Doomsday Villain: Spends the majority of the show offscreen, and as a result, when he does show up, he doesn't display much of a personality.
  • Giant Space Flea from Nowhere He doesn't show up at all until the 35th (out of 38) episode
  • Greater-Scope Villain: It only appears in 3 episodes and speaks in 2 of them, but it is Grumm's master and all of the plans were to turn Grumm's ship into a new body for it.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: Refuses to allow Gruumm to kill Cruger and the Power Rangers when he has the chance, until The Magnificance is completed. This allows Piggy to sneak aboard the ship and free the Rangers.
  • Walking Spoiler: Only appears in 3 episodes, but plays an important role over all in the final episodes.

The A-Squad

Click for SPOILERS 

The elite team of Power Rangers SPD had and were the first active squad of Rangers seen when the season began.


Robotic drones that serve as the Troobian Empire's grunt force.
  • Arm Cannon: They are armed with mounted blasters on their hands
  • Mooks: For the Troobian Empire.

Blue-Head Krybots

Voiced by: Derek Judge
Elite versions of the normal Krybots that serve as Emperor Gruum's personal guards.
  • Elite Mooks: They are a step up from a normal Krybot.
  • What Measure Is a Mook?: If they fail Emperor Gruum, he will destroy them, reducing them to a small metal chip, then turn that chip into a fresh new Blue-Head.

Orange-Head Krybots

Voiced by: James Gaylyn
Elite versions of both the normal Krybots and the Blue-Head Krybots.
  • Conservationof Ninjutsu: How much of a threat these pose depends on their numbers. If there is just one of them, they prove a challenge. If a large number of them appear, the Rangers will use a power up to mow them down.
  • Dragon-in-Chief: The first one served as this to Bugglesworth. Bugglesworth had no real capacity to fight, but the Orange-Head easily beat the Rangers in their initial battles.
  • Elite Mooks: They are the most powerful grunts Gruum has. Every time they appear, the Rangers have a hard time defeating one.
  • Wake-Up Call Boss: Of these was the first villain to hand the Rangers a defeat.
  • The Worf Effect: Morgana is seen easily destroying these before launching her plan with Shorty, showing how dangerous she was. Gruumm complimented her and said she would train with Krybots in the future because he couldn't have her destroying his best robots.

     Alien Criminals 

In General


Voiced by: Bruce Hopkins
A blue diamond themed bee like alien created from Mora's drawings.
  • Adapted Out: His human form from Dekaranger was not used.


Voiced by: Bruce Hopkins
An alien bounty hunter Gruumm hired to take on the B-Squad Rangers.
  • An Axe to Grind: Wields a short axe in close quarters combat.
  • Go Look at the Distraction: His main purpose, other than fight against the Rangers, was to distract them long enough for Gruumm to steal the diamonds. Made no better that Sky purposely ignored Jack's orders to stay and watch them out of spite.
  • You Have Failed Me: Nearly suffers this fate from Grumm when he retreated from a battle with the Rangers, but Mora convinces him to spare him by noting that not only is he a good bounty hunter, but he lost because his robot ran out of energy, rather than any mistake.


Voiced by: ??
A minor monster.
  • Harmless Villain: His evil plan to turn people into parsnips. Grumm tosses him aside with only the barest glance to an unimpressed Mora.


Voiced by: ??
A minor monster.
  • Harmless Villain: His evil plan to use hand puppets for unknown reasons. Grumm doesn't even hesitate to just blast him into nothingness with his staff.


Voiced by: Mark Wright
A rhino-like alien criminal who buys a chemical from Piggy that turns humans into an ooze, which can be used as energy.
  • The Bus Came Back: Sort of. He was cloned by Slate in Reflections.
  • Horn Attack: He can fire his horn as a projectile that regrows. However, should the horn be damaged otherwise, as when Syd slices it off, it stays broken.
  • Human Resources: His evil plan is to turn humans into slime that can then be used as energy fuel. Mora is impressed, and Grumm actually approves of it.
  • Made of Iron: He had very durable armor, which made it difficult for the Rangers to face off against him without the Canine Cannon.
  • Ramming Always Works: He uses this for attacks.


Portrayed by/Voiced by: Sarah Thomson
A Fernovian intergalactic bank robber who tried to frame T-Top.


Voiced by: Kelson Henderson

Dru Harrington/Giganis
Portrayed by/Voiced by: Dwayne Cameron

A Tangar alien that was once friends with Sky back at the SPD academy. However, he secretly defected after meeting Broodwing.
  • Adaptation Species Change: Enhanced human in Dekaranger, alien in SPD.
  • Arm Cannon: Has this in his alien form.
  • Bowdlerise: He grew in Dekaranger by gulping down a handful of pills. Probably because this was too imitable, in SPD he just uses an electronic growth device instead.
  • Beleaguered Childhood Friend: To Sky.
  • Face–Heel Turn: He was an SPD officer until he met Broodwing, who taught him to only look out for himself.
  • Easy Amnesia: He claims to have this in regards to what happened to him over his year of absence. Jack doesn't buy it for a second.
  • The Mole: For his one episode.
  • Shapeshifting: He can switch from human to his natural Tangar form.
  • Spotting the Thread: The first hint Sky gets that Dru isn't being truthful is that when he runs a background check and finds that the criminal Dru claims to have been chasing before his disappearance, Zantor, was still in prison at the time.
  • We Used to Be Friends: With Sky. Dru put an end to that when he shot Cruger, then shot Sky.


Voiced by: James Coleman
A snake-like alien scientist that escaped from KO-35's satellite prison thanks to Broodwing and Emperor Gruumm.


Voiced by: ??
A balance-themed monster created from Mora's drawing.
  • Sore Loser: It actually cried when the Rangers were beating it.

General Benaag

Voiced by: James Gaylyn
One of Emperor Gruumm's most powerful generals, and the one that led the attack on Sirius.
  • It's Personal: How Cruger viewed Benaag as not only did he help Gruumm destroy Sirius and Cruger's people, but kidnapped and killed his wife.
  • Not Me This Time: Cruger believed that Benaag murdered his wife after capturing her, but his Patrol Morpher registered that he did not.


Voiced by: Mike Havoc
A Vampiranoid that stole an evil stone to help with his weakness.
  • Blade on a Stick: Wields on as his main weapon.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: He's a vampire alien criminal who has the traditional weakness of sunlight.

Voiced by: Campbell Cooley

An alien that needs a translator to speak English clearly.
  • "Freaky Friday" Flip: He swapped bodies with Sky in order to take control of the Delta Command Megazord.
  • Heads or Tails?: He makes his decisions based on the flip of a coin.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: He's apparently wiped out 50 planets in the past, and intends to use the Delta Command Megazord to make Earth the 51st.
  • The Unintelligible: Without a translator, Wootox speaks in incoherent noises. He takes advantage of this after swapping bodies with Sky by smashing his personal translator, preventing him from telling anyone what happened.
  • Voices Are Mental: Played with. He briefly speaks with his own voice when he switches bodies with Sky, but spends the majority of the time when interacting with those unaware of the swap using Sky's voice, only relapsing to his own when he's alone or fighting someone who knows otherwise.

A green-headed criminal that attacked Newtech City with a Robot.

Green Eyes

The second-most wanted alien Morgana hired to help her take over Earth.
  • Big "NO!": Let one out before his destruction.
  • Fluffy the Terrible: The second most wanted criminal in the galaxy, named "Shorty."
  • Killed Off for Real: Oddly enough, for a season that arrests the Aliens, Shorty is one of the few criminals that died in battle.


Voiced by: Kelson Henderson
The most wanted alien summoned by his younger brother Shorty.
  • Avenging the Villain: He doesn't take well to the Omega Ranger killing his younger brother.
  • The Bus Came Back: Sort of. He was cloned by Slate in Reflections.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: The fight with Morgana and Shorty quickly turns into this when he shows up, with him personally dishing out one against Cruger.
  • Energy Absorption: He uses the circle of fury to trap the Rangers and attempts to drain their energy.
  • Hope Crusher: The Rangers have nearly defeated Morgana and Shorty, then he shows up and the fight turns into a Curb-Stomp Battle in the villains' favor. If Sam hadn't come back, Devastation would allowed from Gruumm to conquer Earth.
  • It's Personal: Him originally showing up? Just helping his little bro. The Rangers killing his bro? Oh, now it's on.


Voiced by: Barnie Duncan
A magician that turned to crime.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Hypnotized Syd into being his assistant, but the spell is broken once she morphs.


Voiced by: Barnie Duncan
The assistant to Mysticon.
  • Invisibility: Used this thanks to Mysticon's powers, allowing him to rob banks.
  • Perp Sweating: Went through this after the Rangers arrested him, and only broke down after Bridge started rambling.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: It's unknown what happens to him after the interrogation, but he most likely was arrested.


Voiced by: Jeremy Birchall
A copycat Shapeshifting criminal.
  • Meaningful Name: His name is a reference to the expression "blank slate", due to showing no distinct features.
  • Me's a Crowd: Was cloned by Morgana into six copies so each could turn into a past criminal.
  • Shapeshifting: With some DNA provided by Broodwing, Slate was able to transform into past criminals.


Voiced by: Mike Drew
A dangerous criminal with the power to travel through any reflective surface. He was also the criminal that killed Sky's father years ago.
  • Adaptational Backstory Change: In Dekaranger, he killed Tekkan's (Sam's Sentai counterpart) parents. In Power Rangers, he killed Sky's father.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He has an air of politiness while talking to Sky in prison, but quickly makes it clear he is an utter Sadist who loves nothing more than making people suffer.
  • I Shall Taunt You: When he realizes that Sky is the son of the Red Ranger he killed, Mirloc goes out his way to taunt Sky about it, as well as mock him for letting him escape.
  • Knight of Cerebus: As far as Monsters Of The Week go, he is easily one of the darkest. He gets Sky to talk about the painful memory of his father's death, and then mocks him for it just to make him shed a tear, allowing him to escape. Right afterwords we learn he was the one who killed Sky's father in the first place.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Makes a lot of sense that he would be brought in by the son of the Ranger he killed years ago.
  • Logical Weakness: As he needed reflective surfaces, Mirloc was initially detained in a prison with none of those, with even visitors having any reflective materials covered, including the eyes. After he was arrested again, Mirloc was sent to a prison on Verinox 12, where there is no sunlight, meaning that no reflections can exist for him to use as a means of escape.
  • Manipulative Bastard: In exchange for info on Slate, Mirloc demands Sky tell him the worst memory he has. Sky reluctantly tells him about the day his father died, and Mirloc takes advantage of Sky being unable to hold back tears by using their reflective surface to escape the prison.
  • Phantom Zone Picture: Can trap his victims in mirrors.

Stench and Thresher

Voiced by: Greg Johnson (Stench)

  • Laser-Guided Karma: They stole the SWAT technology meant for the Ranger's, only to be brought in by the SWAT SPD Rangers.
  • Those Two Guys
  • The Worf Effect: With their armor, the two were unstoppable that not even the Red SPD Battlizer Ranger could defeat them. However, that all changed when the Rangers gained SWAT Mode.
