    Our Heroes 

Wesley "Wes" Collins / Red Time Force Ranger | (Actor: Jason Faunt)
Voiced by: José Arenas (Latin American Spanish)

Wes was the son of Mr. Collins, being groomed by his father to become the heir of Bio Lab. When the four officers came from the year 3000 after Ransik, he was approached to use the Red Time Force Morpher by Jen as he was an ancestor of Alex, and was need to unlock the other Chrono Morphers. Despite Jen planning on him being used only to unlock the morphers, he convinced her to stay on with the Time Force Rangers, helping them get acclimated in the year 2001 and trying to find his own destiny against his father's wishes.

  • Adaptational Late Appearance: Due to the first episode of Time Force being a two-parter, Wes debuted in part-two. In Timeranger, Tatsuya debuted in the second half of the first episode.
  • Adaptational Skimpiness: Downplayed. While still modest overall, Wes' outfit still has more skin exposure compared to Tatsuya's.
  • All Up to You: With the Time Force Rangers back in 3000 AD and Eric injured, Wes has to face off the Cyclobots by himself.
  • Bash Brothers: With Eric though it takes a while for them to get to this point.
  • Big Eater: During the second episode, he's bothering a cook at his dad's mansion, who notes Wes is always eating too much. Wes retorts it's because he's always hungry.
  • Big "NO!": When Ransik pulls a Taking You with Me in the Final Battle.
    • A more medium-sized "NO!" comes when Eric flings himself over a bridge and is shot by Conwing on the way down.
  • Coming-of-Age Story: Wes grows from a somewhat spoiled son of a billionaire to a true hero who takes control of his own life.
  • Cool Bike: In addition to his Vector Cycle, Wes later gets the Strata Cycle, a bike that can fly.
  • Doppelgänger Replacement Love Interest: Before he and Jen got together, she was engaged to Wes' identical descendant Alex.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: He's blonde and is one of the nicest characters in the entire franchise.
  • Iconic Sequel Character: Wes is one of the most beloved and respected red rangers in the franchise's history despite being introduced in the ninth season.
  • Law of Chromatic Superiority: Well, he is the Red Ranger, so he gets cool armor. Also, see below.
  • Magitek: Wes' battlelizer has a mystical origin despite his season's very sci-fi nature.
  • Missing Mom: No word on what became of his mother.
  • Nice Guy: Very friendly and has a selfless goal to help the Time Rangers.
  • Non-Action Guy: Subverted. While he was inexperienced, he was shown to be a very good fighter from the start.
  • Official Couple: With Jen.
  • The Protagonist: He's the main character, but he's an inexperienced Sheltered Aristocrat and not the actual leader of the team. He also doubled as The Lancer.
  • Rebel Prince: Mr. Collins wanted Wes to grow up to inherit the family business from him, but his grooming served only to alienate Wes from everyone around him. He jumps at the chance to be a Rookie Red Ranger, as it's the first time in his life he's fought for anything of his own will.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Eric's blue.
  • Rich Idiot With No Day Job: How Jen views him at first. He proves her wrong.
  • Rookie Red Ranger: He isn't part of Time Force itself, and he was just recruited because his DNA matched that of Alex's, which proves to be a plot point. Jen never even planned on keeping him around (due to personal reasons), but prompting by the other Rangers convinced her to keep Wes around.
  • Second Episode Introduction: Wes was introduced in the second part of the series premiere.
  • Shipper on Deck: seemed pretty enthusiastic about Eric's dynamic with Taylor when they teamed up.
  • Sheltered Aristocrat: At the beginning.
  • Took a Level in Badass: He was an inexperienced Rookie Red Ranger at first. He becomes a highly-skilled fighter over the course of the season and by the next season he is co-leader of the Silver Guardians.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: He wants his father to be proud of who he is. Sure enough, Once Mr. Collins sees that Wes is a Power Ranger, he's very proud.

Jennifer "Jen" Scotts / Pink Time Force Ranger | (Actress: Erin Cahill)
Voiced by: Maggie Vera (Latin American Spanish)

Jen was a Time Force officer and the fiancee to the original Red Ranger Alex. When Ransik seemingly killed Alex, she swore to take the former in, taking with her three other Time Force officers and the Chrono Morphers. Arriving at Silver Hills in the year 2001, she assumed the Pink Time Force powers and served as the main leader for the team.

  • Action Girl: Out of all the female rangers, she is the most battle-ready and is no less capable when unmorphed.
  • Adaptation Relationship Overhaul: While Yuuri is starting to have romantic feelings towards Tatsuya in later episodes of Timeranger, she doesn't have any of it towards Ryuya prior.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: She's a beautiful woman with a mostly no-nonsense attitude.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Not in her own series, but the skin-tight Ms. Fanservice leather suit from "Reinforcements From The Future" has a belly window.
  • Breakout Character: Due to her leadership and combat skills, Jen is widely regarded as not only the best pink ranger in the franchise but the best female ranger ever.
  • The Comically Serious: Jen's initially rigid demeanor is often Played for Laughs.
  • Cute Bruiser: Very cute in addition to being one of the stronger Power Rangers ever.
  • Dangerously Short Skirt: Wears a miniskirt as part of her civilian outfit, and has to fight a few times in it.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Was aloof to Wes at first. Character Development in both her and Wes is crucial in changing this.
  • Deuteragonist: She gets the second most focus and development after Wes.
  • Fair Cop: One of the fairest in Power Rangers history.
  • Heartbroken Badass: Her fiancee Alex appears to be killed in the first episode. However, he turned out to be alive but different.
  • The Hero: Wes is the Red Ranger and Time Force is his Coming-of-Age Story, but Jen is the Ranger that the season focuses on in terms of plot rather than character development.
  • Iconic Outfit: Her brown skirt and leather jacket combo is one of the most popular outfits in the franchise's history.
  • Iconic Sequel Character: Jen is one of the most beloved and respect female rangers in the franchise's history (and regarded by many as the best pink ranger) despite being introduced in the ninth season.
  • Iconic Sequel Outfit: The leather gear she wears in the reunion-show the next season is fondly remembered for some reason.
  • The Knights Who Say "Squee!": When it comes to action movies, especially kung-fu flicks and her favorite movie star: Frankie Chang.
  • Lethal Chef: Can't even make decent cookies. Then again, the future doesn't have any junk food, so...
    Wes: You shouldn't have! (eats the cookie, gags, and spits it right back out) Ugh, you really shouldn't have!
    Jen(gives a "fine, whatever" look to Wes, then eats her cookie, and gags'')
  • Mini Dress Of Power: Jen's civilian attire includes a brown miniskirt, and she kicks as much ass in it.
  • Modesty Shorts: As seen in "Time Force Traitor".
  • Ms. Fanservice:
    • There's really no reason for Jen's 21st-century outfit to include a tight, tiny miniskirt other than the fact that former model Erin Cahill is one of the most beautiful women to ever put on the pink spandex.
    • Also, the leather suit from the episode "Reinforcements From The Future". Notably, she's one of only two Pink Rangers to don a skintight leather outfit.
    Linkara: Holy crap, Jen, that's special assignment gear for Time Force?!?
  • Not So Above It All: Normally the most serious-minded and straightforward of the team, but she has been known to let go and have fun, especially with the above-mentioned kung-fu movie star.
  • Official Couple: First with Alex, then later with Wes.
  • Quickly Demoted Leader: Averted. Wes gets the Battlizer and standing-in-the-center perks of being Red, but she keeps her position as team leader, thank you very much. The only time she isn't a leader is during the brief arc where Alex reclaims the Red Chrono Morpher from Wes.
  • Raven Hair, Ivory Skin: Rather, a nice dark brown, but it works.
  • Satellite Character: Has no character development not related to Wes, Alex or Ransik.
  • She's Got Legs: And they are very visible with her civilian skirt.
  • Statuesque Stunner: The 5'7" Jen is certainly a beaut!
  • Supporting Leader: The Leader of the eponymous team despite Wes being clearly the story's protagonist.
  • Tsundere: Initially towards Wes. The fact that he resembled the presumably KIA fiance didn't help.
  • Violently Protective Girlfriend: Downplayed with Alex; she would avenge his presumed death. Played straight with Wes; during the Wild Force crossover, she saved him by firing upon the Mut-Orgs.
  • You Are in Command Now: Steelix turns her evil in Time Force Traitor.

Lucas Kendall / Blue Time Force Ranger | (Actor: Michael Copon)
Voiced by: Rolando de la Fuente (Latin American Spanish)

Lucas was a Time Force officer and a former race car driver. Arriving at Silver Hills in the year 2001 with three other Time Force officers, he assumed the Blue Time Force powers.

Katie Walker / Yellow Time Force Ranger | (Actress: Deborah Estelle Phillips)
Voiced by: Rossy Aguirre (Latin American Spanish)

Katie was a Time Force officer. Arriving at Silver Hills in the year 2001 with three other Time Force officers, she assumed the Yellow Time Force powers.

Trip / Green Time Force Ranger | (Actor: Kevin Kleinberg)
Voiced by: Carlos Enrique Bonilla (Latin American Spanish)

Trip was a Time Force officer and a Xybrian native with the ability to read minds and see people in different locations. Arriving at Silver Hills in the year 2001 with three other Time Force officers, he assumed the Green Time Force powers.

Eric Myers / Quantum Ranger | (Actor: Dan Southworth)
Voiced by: Jorge Ornelas (Latin American Spanish)

Years ago, Eric was a prep school student alongside Wes, but despite the latter's attempts to befriend him, he ignored Wes's attempts, leaving school to join Mr.Collins's Silver Guardian squad. After learning that Wes was the Red Ranger, he sought out the Quantum Ranger powers, and after acquiring it along with the Q-Rex Zord, he became the leader of the Silver Guardians.

  • Adaptational Early Appearance: Naoto debuted halfway through Timeranger, whereas Eric debuted in the second quarter.
  • Adaptational Nice Guy: Eric and Naoto mostly start the same way, but it's when their respective bosses are gravely injured where the divergence between the two starts to become really obvious. Naoto was largely without qualms in being an opportunistic bastard, usurping control over the City Guardiansnote , Eric was nowhere near as power-hungry and had way more standards, including a sense of honor that made him temporarily quit when Wes had to take over Bio-Labs. Also, unlike Naoto, Eric actually gets to reconcile with Wes and does properly become his friend.
  • Aloof Ally: Ally is stretching it, at least at first. He remains aloof even when he starts acknowledging the rest of the Time Force as his friends, though.
  • Ambition Is Evil: Ambition's probably his biggest character motivation, but it's averted in that his compassion for others is stronger than his desire for position/recognition.
  • Bash Brothers: With Wes though it takes a while for them to get to this point.
  • Birds of a Feather: With Taylor. Their personalities are similar (stubborn, snarky, hard-nosed, and with leader complexes) which actually caused them to clash initially, but they eventually manage to bond over weaponry and they apparently have similar taste in literature.
  • Breakout Character: Easily one of the most popular Power Rangers across the entire franchise.
  • The Captain: Of the Silver Guardians.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: Subverted. He wears mostly black when out of uniform; only the red beret denotes his primary Ranger color, and that is only because it denotes the commander of the Silver Guardians. In fact, he doesn't wear a casual red shirt until the Wild Force crossover.
  • Cool Plane: The TF Eagle, a small jet he occassionally uses for transportation.
  • Determinator: Eric's worked so hard to get his life out of the gutter and make something of himself. Deconstructed in that it's made him more than a bit resentful.
  • Dark and Troubled Past / Broken Ace: He lived an opposite life to Wes, despite Wes openly wanting to hang out with him. Also his Freudian Excuse for his attitude towards the other Rangers.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Eric's suit has jagged arrows and black gauntlets instead of the whites ones the other Rangers have. Combined with his less pleasant demeanor, one could be forgiven for thinking he is an Evil Counterpart to Wes but he is a hero.
  • Easily Forgiven: Lonely or not, he was still a jerk to and occasionally violent with Wes even though Wes had never done anything but try to be friends with Eric. Then Eric's Character Development kicks in and he's pretty much welcomed with open arms.
  • Everything's Better with Dinosaurs: Eric's Zord is a T-Rex-based Zord called the Quantasaurus Rex, or Q-Rex for short.
  • Friendless Background: Presumably by choice. While Eric was depicted as being an outcast amongst the snobby rich kids of his prep school, Wes honestly seems to try his best to be nice to Eric and is subsequently pushed away.
  • Hidden Heart of Gold: Trip puts it best: "He's lonely; he only acts mean to hide it."
  • Horrible Judge of Character: He underestimates how much Jen wants Ransik caught, believing that she and the other Rangers would rather work for Mr. Collins if it helps with that.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: Before his Character Development, Eric is mostly driven to get recognition.
  • I Work Alone: All but says this to Jen after she's saved him from drowning. When she insists they cooperate later, this is his response.
  • Iconic Sequel Character: Eric is one of the most beloved and respect sixth rangers in the franchise's history despite being introduced in the ninth season.
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: He's a crack shot and with a knack for Mexican standoffs.
  • Instant Armor: His Mega Battle Armor.
  • Jerkass: At his worst, he often attacks Wes for no reason, refuses to thank others for helping him, and in one instance almost left Wes for dead.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite everything, Eric does care for people's safety and was friends with a little girl where he used to live.
    • Consider: he respects Jen's request to keep the truth about the Rangers being from the year 3000 hidden from Mr. Collins even after he snaps at her about being friends.
  • King of the Dinosaurs: The Quantasaurus Rex (or Q-Rex for short) is based on the Tyrannosaurus Rex. It is also the first T-Rex Zord to be scientifically accurate.
  • Law of Chromatic Superiority: He also gets a Super Mode. And he gets to join Wes and eight other Red Rangers on a special mission.
  • The Leader: Of the Silver Guardians. He tries to replace Wes and take over the Rangers too, but it doesn't work out.
  • Morality Pet: He keeps adorable little birds and befriends a little girl who he gives said adorable little birds to take care of near the finale.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Eric is a bad boy Anti-Hero played by the extremely handsome Dan Southworth, who spends most of the show in a dashing military uniform. He even pulls a Mr. Darcy in episode 20 and gets wet in a white shirt.
  • Perpetual Frowner: Smiles a handful of times in the series. More likely to smirk.
  • Powered Armor: His Mega Battle mode.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Wes's red. Despite their shared suit colors.
  • The Rival: To Wes, even after the former gave up his fortune to help people.
  • Rollerblade Good: His Megabattle Armor includes rollerblades.
  • Sarcastic Clapping: Upon becoming the Quantum Ranger for the first time. With his gun, no less.
  • Secret Keeper: Figures out the Rangers are from the future thanks to one of the mutants, and keeps quiet about it until Mr. Collins learns it on his own.
  • Ship Tease / Crossover Ship: With Taylor. Big time.
  • Sixth Ranger:
    • Has the gear for it, but subverted as he never actually joins the team. It should be noted that he is not actually affiliated with Time Force, but with the Silver Guardians.
    • He also goes against the usual grain by sharing his suit's color with another current ranger, and his overall archetype is more of a mercenary Red Ranger than anything else; observe the Law of Chromatic Superiority above.
    • History remembers him as being a sixth, however, and the only Ranger thus far to fit both categories.
    • While he never quite joins the others during the actual Time Force series, by the time the Wild Force team-up happens it's implied Eric did eventually come to accept his place as part of the team, as he acknowledges the others as his friends.
  • Sour Outside, Sad Inside: As Trip figures out, he only acts mean to hide how lonely he is.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: Eric's storyline followed that of Naoto extremely closely even up to being killed in the finale in initial plans. Ultimately, higher-ups rejected him dying and he is merely badly injured.
  • Swiss Army Weapon: Eric's weapon is the Quantum Defender, a laser handgun that can transform into a sword.
  • Tall, Dark, and Snarky: Always, even during Wild Force.
  • The Unfavorite: Not helping Eric's grouchiness is that, at first, Mr. Collins still wants Wes on the Silver Guardians.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: After getting shot jumping off a bridge, Jen saves him. Eric refuses to say thanks, even after Jen points out he would have drowned if not for her.

    Their Friends 

Circuit | (Voice actress: Brianne Siddall)
Voiced by: Rocío Prado (Latin American Spanish)
A robotic owl that joined the Rangers in the year 2001. He serves as their link to the year 3000.
  • Age Lift: Circuit sounds like a male child, whereas his Timeranger counterpart Tak has a very clear adult voice.
  • Cute Machines: A small robot owl with a voice that makes him sound like a child.
  • Mission Control: Shares this role with Captain Logan, serving as their monster alert system in the 21st century.
  • Robot Buddy: Just like Alpha.

Captain Logan | (Actor: Roy Werner)

The mentor of the Time Force rangers.

  • Big Good: Who the four future Rangers answer to.
  • The Captain: He's the leader of Time Force.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Once Alex is revealed to alive, not to mention his superior, Logan fades from the plot with Alex taking his place in scenes that would have previously featured him.
  • Da Chief: Momentarily, during the opening, when he chews Jen, Lucas, Trip and Katie out for getting beaten up by Ransik, then relieves them of duty.
  • Decomposite Character: Has some traits of Ryuuya's traits, acting the Big Good minus the villainous ones, along with Alex. Rather tellingly, he largely fades from the series when Alex enters the plot due to their roles overlapping.
  • Hand Wave: The specifics as to when and how he can contact the Rangers in the past seem to vary between episodes, often with a throwaway line about "temporal interference" to explain his absence.
  • Mission Control: He provides the Rangers with intel from the future.

Mr. A. Collins | (Actor: Edward Albert)
Voiced by: Paco Mauri (Latin American Spanish)
Wes's father and multi-billionaire head of Bio Labs. After the Mutant attacks became more frequent, he established the Silver Guardians.
  • Adaptational Nice Guy: His Sentai counterpart Wataru Asami never really has the Took a Level in Kindness Character Development he does, nor does he reconcile with Tatsuya the way Mr. Collins does with Wes. During the Final Battle, Asami is holed up in his office, while Mr. Collins, while looking for Wes, unhesitatingly rescues some survivors and has his limo drive them to safety while he continues to search on foot alone.
  • Adult Fear: In "The End of Time", he desperately tries searching for Wes during Frax's assault on Silver Hills to no avail, at least until Wes and Eric arrive to stop the oncoming Cyclobots.
  • And Starring: In the opening credits, he's credited as "and Edward Laurence Albert as Mr. Collins".
  • Character Development: Starts as being obsessed with making a profit at the start of the season to a much kinder character willing to help those in need regardless of if they can afford it or not.
  • Cool Old Guy: He is responsible for commissioning the Silver Guardians and the Bio Lab.
  • Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu?: Mr. Collins shows some series balls in the episode Dawn of Destiny by telling of Ransik to his face. Check out Papa Wolf below for more.
  • Everyone Has Standards:
    • Greedy as he is, he's disgusted that his company ended up making a product that would benefit Ransik.
    • He also at least bothers to explain why he doesn't think Eric before he becomes the Quantum Ranger proper, deserves to be the leader of the Silver Guardians: he knows nothing about Eric.
    • Also, despite his bitterness towards Wes' attempts to distance himself, he has enough decency to respect his independence enough to shoot down a subordinate's suggestion of trying to use Wes to reverse engineer his powers.
  • Foil: Starts as one to Ransik as far as parenting goes. Whereas Ransik is an adoring and attentive parent to Nadira, Mr. Collins is cold towards and very controlling of Wes, to the point of deriding him as a disappointment for messing up the plans he made for him. He gets better with Character Development.
  • No Name Given: No first name, at least. We only know it starts with an A.
  • Non-Action Guy: He prefers pen and paper rather than the sword.
  • Parents Know Their Children: He effortlessly identifies his partially - masked son.
  • Papa Wolf: After he finds out that the medicine his factory was creating helped save Ransik, Mr. Collins says "If I'd have known that serum could help you, I'd have poured it down the drain myself!"
  • Rebuilt Pedestal: Before the start of the series Wes used to look up to Mr. Collins and mentioned that he wanted to be just like him but the latter's greed eventually strained their relationship. However, after standing up, and almost dying, to Ransik the two eventually reconcile with Mr. Collins telling Wes to follow his own path. It helps that he became a much nicer person over the course of the season.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: At first.
  • So Proud of You:
    • In the episode "Dawn of Destiny", Mr. Collins expresses that he's proud of Wes for choosing to follow his own path to Ransik.
    • In the finale, he expresses how proud he is of Wes.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Mr. Collins starts the series as being a cold man obsessed with making a profit to the point that he has to be convinced at times to help the Power Rangers save civilians. After his near-death experience he becomes a much kinder individual best shown by his willingness to put himself in danger to help evacuate civilians during the Final Battle against Ransik and turning the Silver Guardians into a free profit organization.

Alex | (Actor: Jason Faunt)
Voiced by: José Antonio Macías (Latin American Spanish)
The original Red Time Force Ranger and the future descendant to Wes. While believed to have died during Ransik's escape to 2001, he turned out alive, helping the Rangers out with the Time Shadow Zord and any other gear until he made his presence known.
  • Adaptational Heroism: His Timeranger counterpart, Ryuuya, turned out to be the Big Bad. Alex, on the other hand, despite being a jerkass, still works for Time Force as a good guy.
  • Big Good: Sees himself like this. He's not. Wes is, and the rest of the team knows it.
  • By-the-Book Cop: Does this too much for his own good, causing the other Rangers to plead with him to give his morpher back to Wes.
  • Cool Shades: Especially while he was providing the Time Shadow.
  • Composite Character: His role as Jen's Cynicism Catalyst after his supposed death is not far off from Yuuri's deceased family in Timeranger.
  • Decomposite Character: The more negative traits of his Sentai counterpart are basically carried over to Ransik.
  • Decoy Protagonist: He's the Red Ranger in the first episode and his actor is first billed. He is seemingly killed off in the same episode and his ancestor Wes takes over the role. Alex reappears halfway through the season, though by that time Wes has firmly cemented himself as The Hero.
  • Good Is Not Nice: He genuinely wants to save the future, but when he takes the Red Ranger powers from Wes, he's definitely this.
  • Identical Grandson: It's implied Wes is his ancestor, given he's played by Jason Faunt.
  • Jerkass Realization: He seems to have one when Jen wordlessly ends their relationship by giving him back her engagement ring. He even sounds like he's about to cry when he suggests using the Megazord to get back to the past safer and spends the rest of the scene staring at the ring as if he's wondering where it all went wrong.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's a no-nonsense hardass during his time as Red Ranger but is capable of reason and he takes Wes's lesson of changing his own destiny to heart.
  • The Neidermeyer: During his brief stint as Red Ranger.
  • One Riot, One Ranger: At first, he's the only Time Ranger that Time Force has, with the other Morphers kept in the Time Ship.
  • Only One Name: Like Trip above, some fans give him the last name of "Drake."
  • Promotion To Love Interest: Subverted. Ryuya was never Yuri's fiancee in Timeranger. While Alex was Jen's, he eventually becomes a Disposable Fiancée.
  • Romantic False Lead: To Jen, but not in the first episode.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: Ryuya is killed at the end of Timeranger, but Alex survives long enough to allow the Rangers to return to help Wes.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Well, more like revealing that he was always more of a Jerkass than he let on.
  • Tyrant Takes the Helm: Rare heroic example, in "Dawn of Destiny".
  • What Does She See in Him?: After Alex berates them for their failure to defeat Dragontron, Lucas flat out asks Jen what she ever saw in him.

The Silver Guardians

A law enforcement organization created by Mr. Collins.
  • Badass Normal: Somewhat. At long range, they are capable of dealing with Cyclobot waves. Up close and personal, however, Cyclobots completely outclass them. And they don't stand a chance against mutants.
  • Five Rounds Rapid: Works on Cyclobots. Not on mutants.
  • Hero Secret Service: The "hero" part is emphasized after Wes is made leader.
  • Hufflepuff House: Though their relationship with the Rangers begins tenuously.
  • Law Enforcement, Inc.: A rare heroic example.
  • Red Shirt Army: They are this more often than not.

    The Mutants 

Ransik | (Actor: Vernon Wells)
Voiced by: Gerardo Vásquez (Latin American Spanish)
Created from a chemical accident, Ransik suffered from society being afraid of his mutatious appearance, eventually growing more colder and ruthless until he founded a criminal empire of Mutants to rule over the humans. Eventually, he went to the year 2001 to have his Mutants rule over.
  • The Atoner: In "Reinforcements from the Future", he decides to atone for his misdeeds.
  • Ax-Crazy: His mental stability often hinges on how much serum he has left.
  • Bad Boss: Towards robots, and mutants who fail him or won't side with him.
  • Bad with the Bone: He pulls his bones out of his body and uses them as swords. It was later revealed he was given this power by some Orgs in Power Rangers Wild Force in exchange for them copying his mutant DNA to become Mut-Orgs.
  • Badass Beard: He has a beard and can kick major ass if he needs to.
  • Beard of Evil: He has a full beard befitting for a villain.
  • Big Bad: The main villain of the series.
  • Body Horror: When we do catch a glimpse of his mutated parts, they aren't pretty. His face especially looks like it's melting with his eye being more at cheek level than it should be.
  • Combo Platter Powers: Ransik has super strength, can fire energy blasts from his hands and can pull out his own bones to use as weapons.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: During the finale of "The End of Time", he effortlessly defeats all of the Rangers, even when Wes uses his Battle Warrior armor against him.
  • Deadpan Snarker: At times, he has a witty sense of humor.
  • Decomposite Character: Despite being an Original Character, Ransik's overall role is similar to Don Dolnero and Ryuya.
  • Drama-Preserving Handicap: Being poisoned by Venomark. More than once, he has been on the verge of killing one or more of the Rangers, only for the venom to start affecting him and forcing him to take the serum, allowing the Rangers to escape.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Despite everything, Ransik is actually a fairly attentive and loving parent to Nadira. This is a factor in his Heel–Face Turn.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: He has a very deep voice, provided by Vernon Wells.
  • Expy: He is a mutant who turns to crime as a result of humanity's persecution of his people. He's essentially the Power Rangers equivalent of Magneto.
  • Final Boss: After Frax is killed by the Rangers, Ransik becomes the last villain they have to encounter.
  • Freudian Excuse: Not that it truly excuses him, but the future time he came from was full of perfectionists who saw a mutation like him as far from perfect, and cast him out.
  • Freudian Excuse Is No Excuse: When Wes explains that he feels sorry for Ransik being ostracized for being a mutant in "Ransik Lives", Jen points out to him that there were people who tried to help Ransik, but he cruelly tossed them aside and his suffering does not warrant the evil he's done.
  • Genius Bruiser: Is as strong as he is cunning.
  • Graceful Loser: If he hadn't accidentally blasted Nadira, he would've beaten the Rangers!
  • Heel–Face Turn: In "The End of Time"; notably one of the few seasons in which the Big Bad isn't killed or forcibly turned good.
  • Heel Realization: In the Grand Finale, after nearly killing his daughter in a rage.
    Ransik: I'm ready... to pay for what I've done.
  • Hell-Bent for Leather: Most of his outfit is black leather.
  • Humans Are the Real Monsters: According to him, though to be fair he's really in no position to judge.
  • Karma Houdini: After everything he did and tried to do there's no arguing he became this at the end, though he at least lets himself be arrested for all of it.
  • Kick the Morality Pet: Towards his daughter, no less. Which shocks him into turning himself in.
  • The Juggernaut: Able to blow through the Rangers with little effort.
  • Large and in Charge: Managed to make himself grow on occasion.
  • Large Ham: Practically the reason Vernon Wells took the role. "Reinforcements from the Future" shows that a Heel–Face Turn did little diminish this.
  • Love Redeems: His love for his daughter is ultimately what causes his Heel–Face Turn and redeems him.
  • Madden Into Misanthropy: His hideous mutations caused the "genetically perfect" humans of the future to turn and run whenever they saw him. Eventually, he came to resent humans so much he didn't trust any of them, even if one were to save his life.
  • Misanthrope Supreme: The leader of the mutants harbors a grudge towards the perfectionist humans.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: After severely wounding his daughter in the Final Battle. "What have I done?" indeed.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: During Venomark's initial encounter with the Rangers, he on the verge of winning and is about poison Wes after having already poisoned the other four. Then Ransik shows up to kill Venomark, saving the Rangers by accident.
  • Not Helping Your Case: His below-mentioned Ungrateful Bastard moment against Frax convinced the latter that Mutants really are as bad as people see them — the opposite of what Ransik claims to want.
  • Orcus on His Throne: Subverted, he follows the traditional Monster of the Week formula of Power Rangers villains, but he isn't afraid to get his hands dirty.
  • Original Generation: Had no Timeranger counterpart, being entirely American in terms of character design (but not in terms of personality, see Decomposite Character above).
  • Papa Wolf: Do not hurt or upset Nadira right in front of him unless you want to suffer. In general, anyone hurting his daughter is just asking for a beating or death sentence.
  • Redemption Earns Life: After realizing what he did was wrong, he survives and turns himself in.
  • Spikes of Villainy: Most of his armored parts have spikes. They're gone next season, indicating he's not evil anymore.
  • Taking You with Me: He attempted to take Wes down with him in his Red Battle Warrior mode, but it doesn't work out.
  • Two-Faced: Until he faced the Mut-Orgs in Power Rangers Wild Force.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Considering that Frax was kind to him and saved his life purely out of the goodness of his heart when Ransik was shunned by most, it was really a dick move to steal all the serum and leave him to die.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: As said above, he was shunned and cast aside and that made him very bitter.

Nadira | (Actress: Kate Sheldon)
Voiced by: Rommy Mendoza (Latin American Spanish)
Ransik's daughter. Unlike her father, Nadira cares more about money and riches than using brute strength, oftentimes using Mutant Criminals for her own agenda.

Frax | (Voice actor: Eddie Frierson)
Voiced by: Alejandro Mayén (Latin American Spanish)
A robot under servitude to Ransik, who created the Cyclobots for the Mutants. However, he secretly wishes to usurp Ransik in many ways, often using the X-Vault Mutants and his own brand of robots to attack the Rangers.

Gluto | (Voice actor: Neil Kaplan)
Voiced by: Alfonso Mellado (Latin American Spanish)
A blue whale-themed mutant criminal that was nearly frozen until Ransik and Nadira took over the Cryo Prison.
  • Adaptational Dumbass: Gluto's Sentai counterpart is far from stupid.
  • The Brute: Tries to be this at one point to impress Nadira. It doesn't work.
  • Decomposite Character: He has the physical appearance of Don Dolnero, the Big Bad of Timeranger. All his characterizations in this version are given to Ransik.
  • Demoted to Extra: Don Dolnero was Timeranger's Big Bad, Gluto is little more than comic relief.


Robots that Ransik uses as his foot soldiers.
  • Mooks / Mecha-Mooks: For Ransik and the mutants.
  • Portmanteau: Their name is a combination of the words Cyclops and Robot.
  • Silly Walk: Their normal walk cycle is a weird hopping jog, regularly throwing their arms up in the air.
  • Swiss Army Weapon: They wield a sword that could be switched to a laser blaster mode.
  • What Measure Is a Mook?: Ransik likes to take his frustrations out on them, angering Frax as he was the creator of them as Dr. Louis Fericks.

    The Mutant Criminals and Other Enemies 

In General:

  • Adapted Out: Reihou, Vincent, Zektar, and Banjan were not adapted into Power Rangers
  • Adaptation Species Change: In Timeranger, the criminals were all aliens, as opposed to mutants.
  • And I Must Scream: Since the mutants aren't killed when frozen, they have to live through their sentence alive, with no movement or freedom from the canisters.
  • Demoted to Extra: Hydrid, Domiiro, and Harbal only made cameo appearances.
  • The Dreaded: Mutants imprisoned in the X-Vault. They are considered so dangerous that the X-Vault itself was kept hidden, along with its key, with Frax thinking it was just a rumour until he found the key.
  • Make My Monster Grow: Each mutant has a DNA patch which, when broken, allows them to grow giant-sized.
  • Non-Lethal K.O.: Unusually for the franchise, they don't get destroyed when defeated, just shrunk to be frozen again.


A ladybug-themed mutant and the first criminal Ransik released in the year 2001.
  • This Is a Drill: As part of his abilities, he can turn his right arm into a drill.
  • Wolverine Claws: As part of his abilities, he can turn his left arm into a powerful claw.


Voiced by: David Stenstrom
A frog-themed mutant that helped Ransik take over a television station to reveal himself.
  • Adaptational Dumbass: His Timeranger counterpart was the one who created the compression patches for the prisoners. None of this is related to him in Power Rangers.
  • Cowardly Lion: Is prone to be nervous, impulsive and uncomfortable, but is still willing to fight against the Rangers.
  • Eye Laser: Can fire these from his eyes.


Voiced by: Richard Steven Horvitz
A water flea-themed mutant Nadira released to help her steal some cars.


Voiced by: Michael Sorich
A punk-themed mutant.
  • Adapted Out: He had a human disguise in Timeranger, but it was never used.
  • Demoted to Extra: Doesn't get an episode featured around him, with the Rangers fighting him as a giant at the beginning of one episode and freezing him before the opening credits even began.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Made one during Force from the Future as he was being frozen in the cryo prison.
  • Flat Character: Doesn't have much of a personality.
  • Whip It Good: Wields a chain-like weapon.


Voiced by: Ezra Weisz
An octopus mutant with a lobster body that kidnapped an entire bus full of children and held them for ransom for 10 million dollars.
  • Adaptation Explanation Extrication: When Tentaclaw's lobster body grew giant-sized, the Rangers defeated him with the Time Force Megazord Mode Blue which caused an explosion. Kind of unusual that a team that's required to freeze all criminals would resort to lethal methods. This was better handled in Timeranger as the lobster body was actually an exosuit, and they were allowed to go all out once they found out.
  • Detachment Combat: He can separate his head from his body for combat purposes.
  • Power Pincers: Has two lobster claws on his body.

A medusa-themed mutant.

A medical-themed mutant/cyborg Nadira released to sabotage Circuit.


Voiced by: Tom Wyner
A catfish-themed mutant bounty hunter and a mutant Jen and Alex arrested back in the year 3000.
  • Arm Cannon: Has one in the form of a Gatling gun.
  • Trauma Button: His entire presence triggers Jen's PTSD of Ransik killing Alex since the season began, even going so far as to kill him in cold blood.
  • Villains Want Mercy: Begged for Jen to spare him when she was inches from killing him (not arresting him, killing him).


Voiced by: Tom Wyner
A cyborg hammerhead shark-themed mutant that Frax released to collect Zirium Powder.
  • Adaptational Badass: Seems to be stronger than his Timeranger counterpart as the damages he caused to the Time Force Megazord forced the rangers to use the Time Jet as a last resort.
  • Mad Bomber: He had grenades on him, powerful enough to damage the Megazord.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: Despite being a Monster of the Week, his actions caused Frax to obtain a way to create Trizirium Crystals, a matter that wasn't supposed to be created until years later. It was a sign that the battle in 2001 was changing the timeline.


Voiced by: Richard Epcar
A powerful mutant that was locked away in the X-Vault.
  • Ax-Crazy: He doesn't bother with any type of scheme when released, he just throws bombs everywhere while trying to murder as many people as he can.
  • BFS: Wields a giant sword.
  • Chest Blaster: Has one in the middle of his chest.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Is a very dark Monster of the Week, spending his screen time either trying to murder people with bombs or attempting to shoot them, at one point almost killing a person if Wes didn't intervene to take the hit.
  • Mad Bomber: Can create small, but deadly, bombs, that resemble toy tops.
  • Puzzle Boss: He had the ability to deflect projectiles the Rangers shot at him, but they managed to figure out that they just had to fire at him from different angles.
  • Slasher Smile: Vexicon's default expression.
  • Wake-Up Call Boss: Being an X-Vault mutant, he was the toughest Mutant criminal the Rangers had to face off by that point. This resulted in them using an unorthodox way of taking him down on the ground, and a new Megazord combination with the Time Shadow in the giant battle.

A female red-eyed swallow-themed mutant.


Voiced by: Steve Kramer
A centipede-themed mutant who can control and absorb electricity.
  • Energy Absorption: Can absorb the energy attacks from the Ranger's weapons and use the energy against them.

Voiced by: Bob Papenbrook
An electric-themed mutant that was locked away in the X-Vault.
  • Demoted to Extra: His Timeranger counterpart was responsible for bringing the Q-Rex Zord into the present time, but as that role would go to Commandocon later on, he's used as a random monster Frax decided to release.
  • Shotguns Are Just Better: His main weapon.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: Despite being a monster of the week, his actions caused Mr. Collins to find out Wes's identity as the Red Ranger, moving the conflict of father and son forward.

A brick-necked ninja-themed mutant Ransik sent to acquire the Quantum Morpher.

  • Evil Poacher: He is a hunter-themed mutant, and a criminal as well.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Was taken down by the same being he was thawed to take, the Quantasaurus Rex.

An odd squid-themed mutant who can copy the voices of other people.
  • A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing: Took on the appearance of a black suit man.

Voiced by/Played by: Riley Schmidt
A racecar driver-themed mutant that was arrested for reckless driving, and an old rival to Lucas. Nadira unfroze him in 2001 to be her chauffeur for quick getaways.
  • Anti-Villain: While reckless and arrogant, along with turning to crime, Dash, unlike a lot of mutants, has some honor and dignity.
  • Badass Driver: Possibly the only driver to match Lucas's skills.
  • Bizarre Taste in Food: He likes to snack on bananas covered in ketchup.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: After quitting as Nadira's chauffeur, she placed a control armor on him, causing him to attack the Rangers against his will.
  • Graceful Loser: Took his loss well, and allowed Lucas the honor of refreezing him.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Following being refrozen, a Flash Forward showed that after his sentence was over and he was released, he went straight and became a race car champion again.
  • Heel Realization: After nearly hitting some kids during a rematch against Lucas, Dash finally sees the error of his ways.
  • The Rival: To Lucas. Both of them were race car drivers back in the day, and both of them tied 3-3 in the six races they did. However, Dash greatly resents Lucas for testifying against him for the accident, which led to him being frozen in the first place.
  • Shapeshifting: Has a natural human form, unlike most other mutants, hence why he was able to blend into the overt racism of the 31st century.

A powerful mechanical-themed mutant, who has a big arsenal of weapons.


Voiced by: Terrence Stone
Portrayed by: Harvey Shain
A crazy movie director-themed mutant who trapped the Rangers in his own script: "The End of the Rangers.".
  • A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing: Took on the appearance of a film director.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: He needs his script to defeat the Rangers, but when Trip ripped the final page that depicted their defeat, it was game over for Cinecon.
  • Shout-Out: His appearance evokes famous director Steven Spielberg.


Voiced by: J.W. Myers
A steel-themed mutant who was Jen's first partner in Time Force, but later betrayed her and joined Ransik.
  • Adaptation-Induced Plot Hole: Sorta. Steelix being a mutant and a member of Time Force brought in some problems since, by this point, mutants were deemed a lower class being. This brings in a lot of confusion and questions as to why Time Force would look the other way. It made more sense in Timeranger as the criminals were all aliens. That being said, Jen did explain to Wes that there were people that helped mutants so it not completely impossible for mutants to have jobs.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Used a special type of gas to hypnotize Jen into attacking Wes.
  • Dirty Cop: Was this until Time Force arrested him.
  • Face–Heel Turn: He betrayed Time Force and started to sell the secret information of the Rangers to Ransik.
  • Shout-Out: To the Pokémon Steelix.


Voiced by: Kim Strauss
A venom-themed mutant from the X-Vault, and a mutant with a history with Ransik.
  • Adaptation Expansion: He was responsible for attacking Ransik and infected him with his venom, forcing Ransik to drink Dr. Ferricks' serum for most of the season.
  • Arch-Enemy: To Ransik, as he is responsible for infecting him. Ransik hates Venomark more than the Power Rangers so much that he indirectly saves Wes from being infected by him.
  • Dirty Coward: He begs Ransik not to kill him after the latter gains the upper hand against him.
  • Lightning Bruiser: He is both fast and a hard hitter.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: This Monster of the Week is the reason Ransik met Dr. Ferricks and Ferricks become Frax by extension.
  • Virus Victim Symptoms: All the victims he attacked had marks on their necks.

A powerful wizard-themed mutant with telekinetic powers. He disguised himself as the salesman in the gymnastic room and sold a special cocktail that transformed the people into the mindless slaves of Frax

Black Knight

Voiced by: Dave Mallow
A black knight who wanted to claim the Battle Fire.
  • Ambiguously Human: We never see what exactly is under that armor since he's neither a mutant nor a robot.
  • Black Knight: Pretty obvious just by his title.
  • Canon Foreigner: He had no known Super Sentai counterpart.
  • Death by Irony: Dies at the hands of the powers he spent ages trying to claim.
  • Killed Off for Real: One of the few Monsters Of The Week to die in this season.
  • Monster Knight: Assuming he's a monster and not a human who used magic to stay alive.
  • Outside-Context Problem: He seems to be the oddball of the monsters this season as he was not a mutant, or even a robot under Frax's leadershipnote . Really, the only reason he exists is to have Wes earn his Battle Warrior Battlizer.


Voiced by: Ron Roggé
A Super Demon that was trapped in the Solar Amulet.
  • Decomposite Character: In Timeranger, he was the combination of Spell-Master Pierre (Jinxer's GoGoV counterpart), and Boribaru. Since Jinxer died in the finale of Lightspeed Rescue and Boribaru was never adapted, Quarganon was used as a separate character.
  • Informed Ability: Despite being labelled as a Super Demon, he was easily destroyed by five Battilized Rangers.
  • Outside-Genre Foe: To the Time Force team, whose primary enemies are mutants and robots.


Voiced by: Philip Proctor
A big-brained mutant that can go inside mirrors.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: During the Megazord battle, he reprogrammed the Time Shadow Megazord onto his side. However, a couple of hits from the Quantumrex Megazord got the Time Shadow back on the Rangers side.


Voiced by: Kirk Thornton
An angel-themed mutant that attacked the Rangers in Miracon's mirror world.
  • Ambiguous Situation: He might be the biggest confusion of all the Mutants. Since he only appeared in Miracon's mirror world, it's unknown if he was created by the mutant, or was captured off-screen by the Rangers.
  • Flat Character: Unlike Redeye and Ironspike, he did not have much of a personality.
  • Shock and Awe: Capable of firing lightning blasts.


Voiced by: Kirk Thornton
A chameleon-themed mutant.


Voiced by: Mark Richardson
A giant girdled lizard-themed mutant, and the final mutant Ransik had in his Cryo Prison.
  • Duel to the Death: He did duel with the Quantum Ranger (Though his defeat leads to him being shrunken down to miniature size not destroyed).
  • The Gunslinger: Has the traits of one, being an expert marksman that only Eric could match.

     Frax's Robots 


Voiced by: Kim Strauss
A large and powerful golden robot created by Frax to attack Silver Hills.
  • Arm Cannon: Sports one on his right arm, capable of firing rockets.
  • Barrier Warrior: Can create a pink force field to protect itself from attacks.
  • Deadly Disc: Can fire yellow energy discs from its shoulders.


A powerful dragon-themed zord created by Frax.
  • Adaptational Backstory Change: In Timeranger, Dragontron's Super Sentai counterpart was a machine lost in a time travel experiment and Frax's counterpart took a fascination in. Here, Dragontron is a creation of Frax's.
  • Adaptational Villainy: Dragontron's Super Sentai counterpart was merely a dangerous out-of-control machine rather than purely malevolent. Dragontron, on the other hand, is an out-right villainous robot.
  • Attack Its Weak Point: The Rangers had to attack its Power Core to finally destroy him.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Easily defeats the Megazords in the initial battle.
  • Humongous Mecha: A rare enemy that starts off a giant.
  • The Juggernaut: Dragontron is virtually indestructible aside from its weak point, none of the zords's attacks managing to hurt it.
  • More Dakka: It carries a ton of weapons.
  • Nigh-Invulnerable: Aside from its weak point, it is for all practical purposes indestructible.

Max Axe

One of Frax's robots. Unique in that he's the only Monster of the Week to be robotic.


The last of Frax's robots that was used in Ransik's final attack on Silver Hill.


How well does it match the trope?
