- Age Lift: As before, the team of Gekisou Sentai Carranger were adults, and while the Phantom Ranger's age is unknown, most of the Power Rangers are again late teenagers and Justin is a preteen.
- Composite Character: Because of the nature of the Zordon era, this series throws in the powers of Gekisou Sentai Carranger to the powers the Power Rangers have, with the only ones this season not falling into this being Justin and the four replacement Rangers—and even then the latter four would become this thanks to Power Rangers in Space.
- Decomposite Character: The team of Gekisou Sentai Carranger stayed together the whole time, whereas halfway through T.J., Cassie, Carlos and Ashley replace Tommy, Kat, Adam, and Tanya.
- Discard and Draw: A rather infamous example among long-time fans. The Rangers trade in their Zeo powers for the Turbo powers with no explanation of what happened to the old powers.
- Empowered Badass Normal: Carlos, TJ, Ashley, and Cassie all bravely help evacuate citizens and/or fight Mooks before being given Power Ranger powers.
- Sword and Gun: The Turbo Ranger's main side arms are the Auto Blasters and the Turbo Blades.
Tommy Oliver / Red Turbo Ranger I
The original Mighty Morphin Green and White Ranger, and Zeo Ranger V — Red, Tommy became the Red Turbo Ranger during the time between Zeo and Turbo. After graduating, he spent his time on the race tracks.
Adam Park / Green Turbo Ranger I
- Portrayed by: Johnny Yong BoschVoiced by: Rubén Leon (Mexico — eps. 1 and 17, Latin American Spanish), Gerardo del Valle (eps. 18 and 19, Latin American Spanish)
The second Mighty Morphin Black Ranger, and Zeo Ranger IV — Green, Adam became the Green Turbo Ranger during the time between Zeo and Turbo. After graduating, he became a soccer coach during the summer.
Kat Hillard / Pink Turbo Ranger I
- Portrayed by: Catherine SutherlandVoiced by: Laura Torres (Latin American Spanish)
The second Mighty Morphin Pink Ranger, and Zeo Ranger I — Pink, Kat became the Pink Turbo Ranger during the time between Zeo and Turbo. After graduating, she continued her passion for dancing, going to different auditions.
Tanya Sloan / Yellow Turbo Ranger I
- Portrayed by: Nakia BurriseVoiced by: Pilar Escandón (Latin American Spanish)
Originally Zeo Ranger II — Yellow, Tanya became the Yellow Turbo Ranger during the time between Zeo and Turbo. After graduating, she worked at a local radio station.
Justin Stewart / Blue Turbo Ranger
- Portrayed by: Blake FosterVoiced by: Alfredo Leal (Latin American Spanish)
Justin accidentally found out the Rangers identity by hiding under Rocky's hospital bed. When the former Mighty Morphin Red Ranger, and Zeo Ranger III — Blue, was unable to join the Rangers due to his back injuries, Zordon recruited Justin, despite his young age, as the Blue Turbo Ranger.
- Adorably Precocious Child: Only twelve years old and he seems to be the first to ever get the hint when a bad guy is on the prowl.
- Ascended Fanboy
- Beware the Nice Ones: Big Burpa didn't see Justin coming in "Bicycle Built for the Blues" after she put him on that bike of doom!
- BFG: Two in the form of the Turbo Hand Blasters.
- Child Prodigy: Justin is a 12-year-old who's skipped several grades in school and made a few inventions.
- Composite Character: In addition to being the Blue Ranger like his Carranger counterpart, Justin shares a role in Dairanger and Ohranger's Kou and Riki: a child Ranger who grows up into a teenage body whenever they morph.
- Darker and Edgier: When you think about it — his mom's dead, his dad apparently abandoned him, and he looks up to the other Rangers, Tommy in particular, as parental replacements. Ridiculously like Evangelion.
- Grade Skipper: After breezing through an exam at the beginning of the season, Justin is allowed to enroll in the ninth grade at Angel Grove High.
- I Choose to Stay: In the finale, Justin decided not to join the others in the shuttle. Rather, he decided to stay back on Earth and be with his father. The other Rangers are understanding about this because of how often he missed his dad.
- Kid-Appeal Character: Quite possibly one of the most obvious textbook examples of this trope in TV history.
- Kid Hero: He's a twelve-year-old kid that can morph into a Power Ranger.
- Parental Substitute: Gets two during both waves of the season: Tommy and Kat during the first wave; Carlos and Cassie during the second wave.
- Pintsized Powerhouse: Once got bitten by a radioactive ant and got super-strength in "Little Strong Man", but unfortunately had to give it up to continue being a Power Ranger.
- Put on a Bus: "Chase into Space". Came back for Power Rangers in Space episode "True Blue to the Rescue".
- Sizeshifter/Older Alter Ego: Whenever he morphed into a Ranger, his body's height grew to match those of the other rangers (while his voice is still sounded like his usual 12-year-old self), for no apparent reason given.
- The Smart Guy / Badass Bookworm: He's smart enough to be several grades ahead in school.
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: He basically takes on Billy's role as the nerdy Blue Ranger though this is a downplayed example due to the difference in age. He also fills the role of Fred, serving as a Kid-Appeal Character introduced in a movie, though unlike Fred, Justin actually does become a Ranger and sticks around for the series.
- Tagalong Kid: Inverted, since he can put up a good fight. Further inverted after the cast turn-over, which makes him the most experienced Ranger of the five.
- Tomato in the Mirror: In "The Robot Ranger", Justin begins to freak out after he discovers all the other rangers are robots — then the reveal is that he's one, too! Then the real Justin walks out and reveals that the whole thing was an experiment to see if they could build perfect robot rangers for Zordon and Alpha.
- When You Coming Home, Dad?: His dad wants to be there for him, but has difficulty finding a job. It's resolved by the end of the series, and keeping the family together is the main (in-universe) reason he doesn't go into space with the other Rangers. His brief reappearance in Space reinforces the happy ending.
Theodore Jay "T.J." Jarvis Johnson / Red Turbo Ranger II
- Portrayed by: Selwyn WardVoiced by: Benjamín Rivera (Latin American Spanish)
T.J. was on a bus heading to Angel Grove when he saw the Rangers in action. After rescuing Tommy from the Vortex of Eternal Doom and Sorrow, he was named the former's replacement for the Red Turbo Ranger powers, based on his courage and strength, and became the new leader.
Carlos Vallerte / Green Turbo Ranger II
- Portrayed by: Roger VelascoVoiced by: Carlos Hugo Hidalgo (Latin American Spanish)
Carlos was an Angel Grove soccer player under Adam's coaching, but during a monster attack, he helped send people to safety. When Adam left, he was named the former's successor for the Green Turbo Ranger powers based on his decisiveness and intelligence.
Ashley Hammond / Yellow Turbo Ranger II
- Portrayed by: Tracy Lynn CruzVoiced by: Mayra Arellano (Latin American Spanish)
Ashley was an Angel Grove cheerleader, but during a monster attack, she helped send people to safety. When Tanya left, she was named the former's successor for the Yellow Turbo Ranger powers based on her compassion and integrity.
Cassie Chan / Pink Turbo Ranger II
- Portrayed by: Patricia Ja LeeVoiced by: Rocío Prado (Latin American Spanish)
Cassie was on a bus heading to Angel Grove when he saw the Rangers in action. After helping Kat out against a squad of Phiranatrons, she was named the former's replacement for the Pink Turbo Ranger powers, based on her loyalty and trustworthiness.
Turbo Zords/Turbo MegazordThe initial Zords used by the Turbo Rangers.
- Chest Blaster: It can use the head lights from the Mountain Blaster Turbo Zord to fire the Turbo Headlight Blaster.
- Combining Mecha: As stated below, the Turbo Zords are five cars that combine into one Turbo Megazord. In the fight against Count Nocturne, the Rangers were forced to make the Rescue Turbo Megazord using the Red Lighting and Mountain Blaster Turbo Zords and the Thunder Loader, Star Racer, and Wind Rescue Zords.
- Cool Car: The Turbo Zords are car themed Zords, and they form a Megazord.
- Cool Sword: The Turbo Megazord's main weapon is the Turbo Megazord.
- Early-Installment Weirdness: The pilot movie brought some aspects that were not used in the show proper.
- First off, the Turbo Zords were introduced to be the size of normal cars that grow into gigantic sized vehicles for the combination sequence. Aside from one instance where Tommy had to use it, the show never used this concept again.
- The combination sequence was slow and realistic, when compared to the fast paced slamming combination in the show.
- Finishing Move:
- Turbo Megazord: Turbo Megazord Spinout: After dashing towards the monster, the Turbo Megazord spins out in a cyclone motion with enough force to destroy the monster. In the fight against Goldgoyle, the Turbo Megazord leapt and used the rotation to drill through him.
- Rescue Turbo Megazord: Artillery Power: Using the Artillery Power from Artillatron, the Rescue Turbo Megazord fires its cannons and its Turbo Headlight Blaster to destroy a monster.
- Grand Theft Me: When General Havoc stole the Turbo Megazord, he equipped it with a battery pack powered by the Phantom Ranger's Power Ruby to become evil, with the monster Crosspatch piloting it with four Chromites. It took T.J. storming the Megazord and shooting the battery pack off it to bring it back on the Rangers' side.
- Killed Off for Real: Destroyed by Goldgoyle in the finale.
- Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: It can also wield the Turbo Megazord Shield for defense, which is shaped like a tire.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: Had them when it had the battery pack attached.
Robo RacerThe Blue Senturion's Police Cruiser Zord.
- Arm Cannon: One of the Robo Racer's weapons is an arm mounted Synegizer.
- Blade Below the Shoulder: One of the Robo Racer's weapons are a pair of knives that come from its arm sleeves.
- Finishing Move: Once Robo Racer activates Synergizer Blaster Mode, the Zord fires a volley of energy blasts at the monster until it explodes.
- Improbable Weapon User: One of the Robo Racer's weapons is a set of handcuffs to restrain a monster.
- Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: One of the Robo Racer's weapons is a red riot shield.
- Transforming Mecha: Robo Racer can transform from Police Cruiser to Megazord Battle Mode.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: The Robo Racer's final appearance was helping the Rangers fight the Divazords. After that, it was never seen again.
Rescuezords/Resuce MegazordThe second set of Zords the Turbo Rangers used. After General Havoc stole the Turbo Megazord, the Phantom Ranger gifted the team with the Rescue Zords as replacements.
- Combining Mecha: Five Rescue vehicle themed Zords that combine into one Rescue Megazord.
- Dual Wielding: One set of the Rescue Megazord's aresenal are a pair of silver blasters. It follows the trope with Artillery Power.
- Finishing Move: Artillery Power: Using the Artillery Power from Artillatron, the Rescue Megazord fires its cannons to destroy a monster. An alternative method is having four of the Rescuezords (minus the Lightning Fire Tamer Rescuezord) hold a cannon in two pairs to fire at the monsters.
- Giant Medical Syringe: The Wind Rescue Rescuezord can launch a giant syringe at its opponents.
- Killed Off for Real: Destroyed in a failed suicide attempt to take out Goldgoyle in the finale.
- Making a Splash: The Lightning Fire Tamer Rescuezord can fire high pressurized streams of water.
- Sonic Stunner: The Siren Blaster Rescuezord can emit a sonic blast from its chest.
- Taking You with Me: In the fight against Goldgoyle, the Rescue Megazord got trashed and left the Rangers no choice but to destroy it in a desperate attempt to take out the monster. It failed to even scratch Goldgoyle.
- Transforming Mecha: All the Rescuezords can transform into smaller humanoid Zords, referred to as High Stance Mode.
ArtillatronThe Phantom Ranger's Zord. It is used to carry the Rescuezords into battle and provide them with Artillery Power.
- Arm Cannon: The Artillery Power it carries can form the arms for Artillatron Warrior Mode.
- Assist Character: Its only purpose is to carry the Rescuezords into battle and provide them with Artillery Power.
- Awesome Personnel Carrier: One of Artillatron's roles is to carry the Rescuezords into battle. Though unlike Titanus, Tor, and Pyramidus, it never had the ability to form an Ultrazord configuration.
- BFG: What the Artillery Power are. A pair of giant cannons the Rescue Megazord uses. One is a flamethrower, and the other is a Gatling Blaster.
- Combining Mecha: Artillatron can merge its three compartments to form Warrior Mode.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: Artillatron's final appearance was launching the Rescuezords in the fight against Goldgoyle. After that, it was never seen again.
The Blue Senturion
- Voiced by: David Walsh, Alejandro Illescas (Latin American Spanish)
A robotic intergalactic police officer who came from the year 2000 to deliver the Millennium Message to the Rangers. After certain events, he joined the Rangers as an occasional ally.
- Adaptation Species Change: Signalman was an alien in Carranger, but here his counterpart, the Blue Senturion is a robot.
- Adapted Out: His family isn't adapted as he's a robot rather than an alien. His brief one-sided rivalry with Havoc (on Havoc's sided) is written out too since he never met him before the series started.
- Badass Biker: He rides the Senturion Cycle.
- By-the-Book Cop: He is a no-nonsense cop. This means when he's not fighting Divatox's latest monster, he's writing tickets for parking infractions.
- Chekhov's Gunman: Came from a thousand years in the future to deliver the "Millennium Message", which was intercepted before it got to Zordon. Cue serious repercussions the next season.
- Heel–Face Revolving Door: Turned evil by Divatox in three different episodes: "The Millennium Message", "Stitch Witchery", and "Beware the Third Wish".
- The Sixth Ranger: He fills the role, despite not being a Ranger proper, as an assisting hero who aids the Rangers in a pinch and provides direct support in batttles.
- Space Police: He is a cop and not from Earth.
- Swiss-Army Weapon: His Senturion Synergizer. It doubles as a blaster and a baton.
- Transforming Mecha: His Robo Racer Zord can transform from police cruiser mode to Megazord battle mode.
The Phantom Ranger
- Voiced by: Alex Dood, José García (Latin American Spanish)
A mysterious Ranger that appeared sometime after the second iteration of the Turbo Rangers were active.
- Ascended Extra: Compared to VRV Master who made pivotal yet scarce appearances, the Phantom Ranger has a lot more of his personality expanded on.
- But Now I Must Go: In "Clash of the Megazords", he leaves after the Rangers recover his Power Ruby, claiming that he only stays as long as he is needed and is satisfied that Earth is in good hands with the Turbo Rangers as its defenders.
- Invisibility: Is capable of turning invisible.
- Mysterious Protector: With Cassie filling the role of Sailor Moon.
- Riddle for the Ages: Who or even what he really is, was never revealed. His toy claims that he's the combined spirit of every Power Ranger who is, was, or will be, backed up by Word of God statements.
- The Seventh Ranger: He sort of fills in the Sixth Ranger position during his arc, with Blue Senturion filling the Sixth Ranger for most of the season.
- Ship Tease: Cassie had a crush on him, and it is suggested that the Phantom Ranger reciprocated to a degree as Divatox's forces specifically used her as a hostage to bait the Phantom Ranger into a trap.
- Unrelated in the Adaptation: He has no known connection to Zordon (outside of hailing from his home world of Eltar), Dimitria, or Lerigot, whereas VRV Master was Dappu's father.
- Portrayed by: Steve CardenasVoiced by: Sergio Bonilla (Latin American Spanish)
- Portrayed by: David Fielding noteVoiced by: Bob Manahan, Jorge Santos (Latin American Spanish)
The mentor to the Mighty Morphin and Zeo Rangers.
- Portrayed by: Donene KistlerVoiced by: Richard Steven Horvitz, Rocío Prado (Latin American Spanish)
Zordon's robotic assistant.
- Portrayed by: Carol Hoyt
Voiced by: Rebeca Manríquez (Latin American Spanish)
A being from the planet Inquiris, Dimitria came in as the Ranger's new mentor after Zordon left back home to Eltar.
- Convenient Replacement Character: Kind of convenient for Dimitria to become the new mentor just after Zordon returned to Eltar.
- Composite Character: While she has partly Dappu's role as the mentor (following Zordon's departure), she also has a bit of the role of Radietta Fanbelt/White Racer of Carranger as she is all but stated to be the twin sister of Divatox, who is partly Zonette's counterpart who herself was the older sister of Radietta.
- Decomposite Character: She shares Dappu's role with Zordon.
- Divergent Character Evolution: Whereas Zordon acted like a kind but stern leader to the Rangers, Dimitria treats them more like a parent would a child.
- Figure It Out Yourself: Dimitria spent the first half of the series doing this (her species could only talk in questions, supposedly, though fellow "Inquirian" Visceron didn't have this problem), only to drop this practice when the four veteran Rangers- probably more experienced at this sort of thing than she was- were retired and replaced, at which point she got a lot more direct.
- Get it? Because it sounds like inquiry/inquire? Question?
- Midseason Replacement: For Zordon.
- Unrelated in the Adaptation: She has no known connection to the Phantom Ranger, whereas VRV Master was Dappu's father.
- Whatever Happened to the Mouse?: Last time we saw her, she departed with the Blue Senturion to Eltar to help Zordon. While we know the Senturion survived the invasion, Dimitria's whereabouts remain unknown.
- Portrayed by: Donene KistlerVoiced by: Katerina Luciani, Araceli de León (base voice, Latin American Spanish), Ana María Grey (ep. 20, Latin American Spanish)
A newer Alpha-model who came with Dimitria after his predecessor left with Zordon.
- Portrayed by: Jon SimantonVoiced by: Lex Lang
A wise Liarian wizard from the planet Liaria and a close friend of Alpha 5.
- Decomposite Character: He sort of resembles a little Dappu whose mentor role is given to Zordon and Dimitria.
- Friend to All Living Things: On Earth, he befriends a troupe of chimps during his time in Africa. When confronted with a lion, he attempts to coerce it closer and is able to make it docile before his magic scares it away.
- I Have a Family: His wife Yara and son Bethel are taken hostage by Divatox to force his cooperation in opening the Nemesis Triangle.
- Healing Hands: He can heal people with his magic, as he did to Kat's cut leg.
- Minor Role Major Impact: Overall, Lerigot's role is confined to the movie's plot in driving Divatox's own story forward and freeing Zordon in the season premiere. That said, the latter action would cause a chain reaction of events that led to Zordon being captured by the Evil Alliance and the eventual death of the beloved mentor in the succeeding year.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: He willingly surrenders himself to the Diva Pirates in order to save his family but he plays into the enemy's hands and they waste no time taking him without returning Jason or Kimberly. Granted, Divatox only sent dummies in the former Rangers' places and never intended to follow through, but Lerigot didn’t know that. There’s also the fact that his freeing Zordon from Rita's time warp led the United Alliance of Evil to Eltar and caused its destruction and ultimately Zordon's death.
- Old Friend: With Alpha 5. Apparently Liaria had relations with Edenoi.
- Put on a Bus: Leaves after helping Zordon return to Eltar and is never heard from again. Presumably he went on to spend a quiet life with his wife and son.
- Teleportation: Used this to escape from the Piranhatrons.
- The Unintelligible: Most of his dialogue, or what little there is, is hard to decipher with him talking in a gargled whisper.
Lighting Cruiser and Storm Blaster
Two sentient, weapons-outfitted cars discovered after the cast change that allow the Rangers to drive them into battle.
- Badass in Distress: They can fight Piranhatrons and other villains on their own but are captured by Divatox in the Turbo finale, and remain prisoners for the first half of In Space.
- Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: They are never seen or mentioned after "True Blue to the Rescue."
- Cool Car: They look sleek and stylish by normal standards, but also have lots of alien weapons to fight the villains with. Lightning Cruiser can also fly.
- A Day in the Limelight: "True Blue to the Rescue" shows Storm Blaster escaping from Divatox with help from Lightning Cruiser, then seeking help when the other car is recaptured.
- What Measure Is a Non-Human?: They're cars, but they can communicate by shaking from side to side and blinking their headlights and show protectiveness of the Rangers and each other and annoyance at being left out. When the cars are captured by Divatox, the Rangers act like they've lost friends.
- Portrayed by: Richard GenelleVoiced by: Luis Alfonso Padilla (Latin American Spanish)
The owner and bartender of the Youth Center.
Bulk & Skull | (Actors: Paul Schrier and Jason Narvy)
Lt. Jerome Stone
- Portrayed by: Gregg BullockVoiced by: Gustavo Carrillo (Latin American Spanish)
- Played by: Nancy de Mayo
- Missing Mom: Her mother doesn't want her around and sent her to live with Stone, while her dad is never mentioned.
- One-Shot Character: There were plans to make her the new Pink Ranger, but because those plans never came to fruition, she only appears in the B plot of one episode and then is never seen or mentioned again.
- Tragic Dream: She works hard to try to get a dance scholarship but is rejected in a fairly condescending manner.
- Portrayed by: Carol Hoyt (eps. 1-25), Hilary Shepard Turner (T: APRM, eps. 26-45)Voiced by: Rebeca Manríquez (Latin American Spanish)
An intergalactic pirate queen that led an army through her conquest over the galaxy. She attacked Earth after the Rangers killed her fiancé Maligore.
- Aborted Arc: Was going to be revealed as Dimitria's long-lost twin sister, which was hinted at in "Transmission Impossible". This was possibly proven to be true after she got hit by Zordon's purification wave, as purified Divatox wore a pure white dress that looked just like Dimitria's.
- Adaptational Badass: Beauty Zonette was disinterested in the evil business and mostly used the Bowzock as her personal lounge and manipulated the actual figurehead leader, President Gynamo, into doing favors for her with her beauty and wasn't particularly good at scheming whenever she tried her hand at it. Divatox despite her incompetence at times, ultimately proves to be much more proactive and competent, to the point that she actually succeeds in leading an attack to destroy the Turbo Rangers' base after her servant, Goldgoyle, destroyed most of their zords. Her being the boss of Goldgoyle rather than the other way around also gives her this status further
- Adaptational Jerkass: Even discounting her being straight-up evil unlike her Carranger counterpart, Zonette was at worst whiny and spoiled yet genuinely cared about her Bowzock teammates (enough that in the finale she convinces them to turn good and help defeat Exhaus), Divatox on the other hand is a straight-up jerk who sees her minions solely as that and shows no sympathy to even her own family like Elgar and General Havoc.
- Adaptational Villainy: Beauty Zonette is neither evil nor the Big Bad in Carranger (the spot is instead occupied by Reckless Dash Emperor Exhaus, who was adapted into Goldgoyle; with President Gynamo, adapted into Rygog, serving as the figurehead leader for most of the series) and is somewhat uncooperative to Gynamo and the other Bowzocks. She also had romantic feelings for Red Racer too.
- Bad Boss: She's cranky and short with her followers on a good day and regularly berates them when a plan falls through, even if they had minimal involvement with it. Her very first line of dialogue has her screaming "IDIOTS!!!" at her crew. Its implied at one point that she broke a Piranhatron's leg to make demoralizing Carlos more effective (the leg cast is still present once said Piranhatron's disguise is revealed).
- Her crowning achievement has to be blowing up the Power Chamber despite Elgar and many piranhatrons still struggling inside at the time. They (mostly) don't appear worse for wear, but still, it was a dick move.
- The Bad Guy Wins: Yes, sadly. Once she found out where the Power Chamber was, she ordered a full-on assault of the base. Dimitria leaving and the Rangers losing their Zords contributed to their weakened power, allowing her forces to overwhelm them and decimate the base. It was only Divatox being called away by Dark Specter that saved the Rangers from being finished off.
- The Baroness: Divatox fits the "sexpot" variation in the movie though she is still the Big Bad. Her menace and sexualization were toned down for the series proper.
- Big Bad: The main villain of Turbo as the leader of the space pirates.
- Breast Plate: In the Turbo movie.
- Carol Hoyt's portrayal in the first half of Power Rangers Turbo had shades of this. She was the butt of jokes and mishaps a little more often than her predecessors (Rita Repulsa, Lord Zedd, Master Vile, Machine Empire) and even her own minions. In various episodes, she encountered her ex-lover whom she sent against the Power Rangers, got amnesia and was forced to work for a living, was called a failure by her own mother, and a couple of times or more she was on the receiving end of accidental slapstick from Elgar.
- Upon Hilary Shepard Turner's return to the role, Divatox dropped these Butt-Monkey aspects and became a lot whinier.
- Catchphrase: "VIVA LA DIVA!"
- Cleavage Window: Her breastplate has this in the movie, showing off her rather sizeable bust; she was covered up in the series.
- Composite Character: She is primarily based on Beauty Zonnette in terms of design as a human-like female villain with an attractive appearance (and is the sister of a white-clad female ally of the heroes), she also has President Gynamo's (and later Emperor Exhaus') role as the leader of the bad guys of the season (while Zonette could easily manipulate Gynamo to do her bidding, she wasn't the leader of Bowzock).
- Contralto of Danger: Carol Hoyt's rendition of Divatox was noticeably husky compared to Hilary Shepard Turner's.
- Dark Chick: The only female member of the main bad guy ensemble, but she is in charge nevertheless.
- Dead Man's Switch: It's easier to count the number of episodes where she doesn't use a detonator (mostly after the Ranger switch), even incorporating them into plans which don't need them. Unsurprisingly, at least one Wire Dilemma comes up.
- Evil Is Hammy: With that catchphrase, could she be anything else? Two flavors of ham, in fact, due to being played by two different actresses. Carol Hoyt played her colder and more calculating, whereas Hilary Shepard Turner played her a little loonier.
- Figure It Out Yourself: When Elgar asked why she doesn't like Dimitria:Divatox: She's the embodiment of good, and I'm the embodiment of evil. YOU DO THE MATH! (Elgar attempts to do math)
- Evil Twin: It's implied although unconfirmed that Divatox is Dimitria's long lost twin sister, even more so because at the series finale of In Space, when she's purified by the Zordon Wave, she wears a long white gown identical to Dimitria's.
- Forgot the Call/Laser-Guided Amnesia: In "Trouble by the Slice". Bonus points for using an actual laser (or rather, a teleportation ray turned up to eleven, but still)!
- Gold Digger: She wanted to marry Magilore entirely for personal gain. That said, it's not as much for money, but for control of the universe.
- Hypocrite: Berates her underlings for failing against the Power Rangers, despite not actually bothering to fight the Rangers herself.
- I'm a Humanitarian: When the Rangers were shrunk down and stuck in her ship, Divatox cornered them and grabbed Tanya with her extendable tongue, and attempted to eat her.
- It's All About Me: She is so self-absorbed she even blows kisses at her reflections and constantly kisses herself when she's proud of what she's done.
- It's Personal: Her attacking Earth comes entirely from the Rangers foiling her attempt to marry an ancient demon and killing him.
- Large Ham: As mentioned above. Also, in one episode, she tries yelling at Porto, first as is and then through a megaphone. There's no difference in her volume between them.
- Mad Bomber: Her preferred weapons are bombs, and they're normally planted in places that will harm a large number of people. She stopped using them after the mid-series retool, though.
- Make My Monster Grow: If Divatox thinks her monsters need an extra boost, she calls out "Fire the torpedoes!" and launches two torpedoes at the monster. The impact causes the monster to grow.
- Malicious Misnaming: Calls Rita Repulsa "Frieda" in the first episode of Power Rangers in Space.
- Meaningful Name: Her name has the word DIVA in it for a reason.
- Ms. Fanservice: Her outfit certainly invokes this trope.
- Near-Villain Victory: While she succeeds in destroying the Command Center, she's kept from total victory by Dark Specter ordering her to gather with the other villains. Knowing she can't disobey his command, she orders her troops to halt their search for the Rangers in the rubble of the center and teleports away. Had that call come any later, that would've been it for our heroes.
- Never Found the Body: Defied: after blowing up the Power Chamber she has her mooks search the Rangers' bodies in the rubble to make sure they're dead, and only ends the search early due being called away by Dark Specter. She also assumes the Rangers have survived and shouts a warning she'll be back... And she's proven right.
- Non-Action Big Bad: She spends the entire series barking orders at her underlings, never bothering to actually to fight them herself.
- Not-So-Harmless Villain:
- A lot goofier and less threatening than the Machine Empire and Lord Zedd, and hell even Rita. There's even an episode where she gets amnesia and ends up working at a pizza parlor....in the season finale she sends a monster that destroys both the Megazords, captures their Cool Car allies, and leads an assault on the Power Chamber, and destroys it and the Rangers' powers, making her the first villain to truly defeat the Power Rangers.
- While she can be goofy, her attacks often involve bombings that could kill a large number of people.
- Psychopathic Manchild: Hilary Shepard Turner plays her as essentially being a spoiled teenaged brat, who just happens to be an alien pirate queen with whole armies ready to serve her every whim.
- Spoiled Brat: And how!
- Stripperiffic: Downplayed in the series.
- Subverted Catchphrase: In "Carlos and the Count," she says "Launch the torpedoes!"
- Surrounded by Idiots: While Divatox is no strategic genius herself, her minions are nowhere near as intelligent as she is. Lampshaded by her in the fifth episode.
- "Take That!" Kiss: Divatox captures the Phantom Ranger's ruby and without it, he will die. She gleefully gives it a long passionate kiss in front of Cassie. Also, she blasts TJ with a laser, causing him to plummet to his death and she excitedly blows him a goodbye kiss.
- Unholy Matrimony: She wanted to marry Magilore to conquer the universe.
- Working with the Ex: One monster of the week is her former boyfriend, who left her at the altar.
- Would Hurt a Child: Since one of her opponents is a pre-teen, after all. At one point, one of her plans involves sticking a bomb on a bike given to Justin, then making him unable to jump off.
- You Meddling Kids: Comes up when the Rangers are looking for the detonator used in "Glyph Hanger."
Divatox's dim-witted nephew.
- Ace Pilot: For all his flaws, he is surprisingly good zord pilot, easily trouncing the rangers and the Blue Senturion.
- Adaptational Comic Relief: While Zelmoda is still dim-witted, he's a Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass with a more sinister face.
- Adaptational Dumbass: Both Elgar and Zelmoda are far from being the genius of their respective gang, but Power Rangers Turbo emphasized Elgar's idiocy much more than Carranger did for Zelmoda, who is in fact more menacing in both appearance and actions.
- Adaptational Villainy: Zelmoda was ruthless, but in the end he turned good once motivated by Zonnette's words after Exhaus' betrayal. Elgar remains evil and shows no redeeming qualities beforehand, dying as a villain attacking civilians.
- Bald of Evil: Has no hair, except for one time when he used one of the Wicked Wisher's wishing coins to get some. It didn't last.
- Butt-Monkey: Either when working for Divatox (Hilary Shepard Turner's version) in Turbo or Astronema in Space.
- Cool Sword: Uses one that appears to be made out of playing cards.
- The Ditz:
- In the first episode, he gets sent to place a bomb in a power plant, which he does easily enough. Then he gets lost trying to find the way out, and when next seen is wandering around the place, now trying to look for a gas station.
- In another episode, he removes the torpedoes from their launch system so that he can clean them up.
- Or when Divatox is sent tumbling to the ground by an earthquake, Elgar is convinced she's looking for something.
- Probably one of his worst sins: Accidentally made a wish with a magical coin, fulfilling his whimsical desire at the expense of a wish that Divatox could have potentially used against the Power Rangers.
- Death by Adaptation: He dies in the following season, but his Sentai counterpart survived at the end of Carranger and even reformed to help defeat the real Big Bad of the series, Exhaus, afterwards going to school to get a proper education and becoming a cook alongside his surviving Bowzock friends.
- Dumb Muscle: Emphasis on the dumb part.
- Flanderization: In the movie, while he was still stupid, he could still accomplish basic tasks and not meander about when he fought the Rangers. His voice was also deeper and less dopey sounding.
- Humongous Mecha: Is surprisingly a good pilot of these. Elgar was beating both the Rangers and the Blue Senturion in a Zord fight, until one of the arms fell off, causing Elgar to retreat to the Space Base. And when Elgar returned, with Terrorzord fixed, he once again only lost when the monster of the week accidentally transformed the Terrorzord into a camel, with Elgar sitting on it.
- Lighter and Softer / Bowdlerise: The suit was redesigned slightly when it was brought over from Japan; Zelmoda's◊ wild eyes and Joker-esque grin where softened significantly, giving Elgar a mostly dumb◊ look instead. It gets weird in several scenes where they use Zelmoda's Stock Footage as Elgar suddenly changes appearance without warning. Of course, the American suit was made on a larger budget than the original. Elgar's voice and mannerisms were also more jovial and light-hearted compared to Zelmoda's.
- The Load: On his best days, Elgar's a nuisance and a distraction. On his worst, he does more to sabotage Divatox's schemes just by being there than the Rangers ever do. Divatox does eventually get wise to this, such as when trying out a new flying car Porto's made for her, and Elgar says he made the fuel. Divatox quickly backs out and suggests Elgar try it. The car doesn't go more than a few feet before it goes boom.
- No Indoor Voice: Most of the time, Elgar yells his lines.
- Off-Model: The difference between Elgar's appearance between American and Japanese footage is ridiculously obvious with the former presented as comical and stupid while the former is menacing and bloodthirsty. Bizarrely, the American production team did use the Japanese mask for a scene in the movie where Elgar subjugates Adam with a rope.
- Unexplained Recovery: In the movie, Divatox shoved him into Maligore's pit. Come the first episode, he shows up again none the worse for wear, aside from smelling burnt (and complaining of his nose changing color).
Divatox's right-hand man.
- Adaptational Dumbass: Sometimes played straight, sometimes inverted. His Sentai counterpart President Gynamo is the initial Big Bad of Carranger but often had a goofier portrayal due to the nature of Sentai source material (Carrangers is an Affectionate Parody) and was a complete stooge for Zonette's petty whims due to being completely infatuated with her. Additionally, the face re-design for Rygog was made to look less menacing compared to that of Gynamo but at the same time it gives out lesser vibes of being on a "cheap budget". He still has arguably the most intimidating look out of all of the Diva Pirates anyway even with the redesign.
- The Brute: He never fights but he's quite strong.
- Demoted to Extra: Variation; his Carranger counterpart was the chief baddy of that series.
- The Dragon: To Divatox, if only by default. Elgar is too Elgar to be of any use, and Porto's the scientist.
- Guttural Growler: He speaks with a deep raspy snarl befitting his monstrous appearance.
- Morality Pet: He's the only one of her crew that Divatox seems to have at least a shred of a soft spot for.
- More Teeth than the Osmond Family: His fangs are longer and jagged in the Sentai footage. The American suit toned this trait down significantly, though his teeth are still rather prominent.
- Non-Action Guy: He may look scary, but rarely participates in any action aside from his piloting the Catzord late in the season. In fact he tends to retreat more often than not whenever faced with extensive combat. Even Porto was able to hold his own against the original Turbo Rangers for a spell after growing huge.
- Not So Above It All: He's usually the most serious member of the crew, relatively speaking, but there are times, particularly after the cast change, where he does humor Elgar's more outrageous antics. He even briefly gets into baseball alongside Elgar in a later episode.
- Off-Model: Rygog in American footage looks higher budget but has less teeth than how he appears in the Carranger source footage. His eyes are red and glowing in the former whereas the latter didn’t due to the lesser budget.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: His eyes glow bright red and he's with the bad guys.
- Top-Heavy Guy: Subverted. He looks like he is, but it’s just his outfit. Elgar even once took it off to see how it fitted him, much to Rygog's chagrin.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: He was last seen bowing to Astronema's ascension as the new Grand Monarch of Evil in "Countdown to Destruction" but whether he was destroyed or purified by Zordon's energy wave is never made clear.
Divatox's chief scientist.
- Adaptational Personality Change: Porto may be an Insufferable Genius and an unrepentant villain, but he's more submissive and polite to Divatox than Grotch was to President Gynamo.
- Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: He disappears from the narrative after the Cimmerian Planet meeting at the start of In Space whereas Elgar was reassigned to work with Astronema (for whatever reason) and Rygog was shown to still be with Divatox in a few cameos. His fate after the Z Wave was unleashed remains unclear.
- Creator Cameo: His voice is provided by the ADR director of the series from here all through Wild Force.
- Evil Genius: He creates, or sometimes hires, monsters for Divatox.
- Not-So-Harmless Villain: He's not a frontline fighter ordinarily, but in an early episode, he was successfully able to pin the Rangers down by growing huge and breathing on them with his gases. Later he pilots the Sharkzord against the new Turbos, but that doesn’t quite go as smoothly.
- Off-Model: Averted. His suit was imported from Carranger more or less how he was unlike with Elgar and Rygog.
- Punny Name: His face looks like a porthole.
- Second Episode Introduction: Only introduced after the film.
- The Starscream: Zigzagged in "Rally Ranger". He jumps ship from the Diva Pirates after he feels that they don’t appreciate his genius, but he never attempts to outright overthrow Divatox, instead trying to conquer Angel Grove by himself. By the end, he is taken back and forced to Walk the Plank for his going AWOL.
- Steampunk: While all of Divatox's lackey's have this theme, he especially exemplifies it.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: After the first episode of In Space when seen at Dark Specter’s gathering on the Cimmerian Planet, Porto is never seen again. So it remains unknown if he got purified or destroyed by the Z-Wave.
- Canon Foreigner: Neither his role nor costume have anything close to a Carranger counterpart.
- The Corruptor: He briefly turned Jason and Kimberly evil, but Legrigot was able to break the spell.
- Disney Villain Death: During the climactic battle, Maligore is struck by the Turbo Megazord Saber, starts sparking, and then falls backward off a cliff, where he explodes upon hitting the sea below.
- Final Boss: Becomes the climactic opponent of the movie premiere once Divatox awakens him.
- Generic Doomsday Villain: He never talks, giving him less characterization than the average Monster of the Week.
- Living Lava: He is a hulking demonic entity that rises up from, and seems to be formed out of, lava.
- Playing with Fire: He has the ability to unleash streams of fire from his clawed hands and he is so heat resistant that energy blasts from the Rangers' Turbo Weapons have no effect on him.
- Progressively Prettier: Subverted. Divatox was not keen on his appearance and only interested in her position of control if married to Maligore, but Divatox did remark that he “hadn’t changed a bit” since she last saw him, however her tone implies he used to look much less ugly.
- Sealed Evil in a Can: Was entombed on the Island of Muiranthias thousands of years ago by the ancestors of the alien wizard Lerigot.
- Small Role, Big Impact: He really didn't do much aside from attack the Rangers, but his death led to Divatox swearing revenge against them, leading into the TV series.
- Starter Villain: He was the Monster of the Week in the very beginning of Turbo.
Divatox's brother who came to her with his own space station and his own Metallasaurus.
- Adapted Out: General Havoc's appearance is the upgraded form of Ritchhiker, RitchiRitchhiker. His Carranger counterpart had a blue colored form that was not used for Power Rangers.
- Adaptational Badass: While Ritchhiker is a minor Knight of Cerebus, he's just as comedic as the rest of the Bowzock for the most part and only briefly turns more serious in his return and powered-up form. This is not applied to Havoc, however.
- Arc Villain: Has a brief arc where he attempts to use the Metallasaurus to destroy the Rangers, though he's willingly subservient to his sister.
- Chessmaster Sidekick: He is leagues smarter than Divatox and is a legitimately smart villain. Yet he displays no interest in overthrowing her.
- Foil: To his sister, Divatox. He's everything she isn't; calm, collected, cultured, competent, an actual threat to the Rangers.
- Large Ham: Lampshaded in a blooper from "The Darkest Day" when two of his Chromites declare him "the general of ham acting".
- Not So Above It All: While he is miles ahead of Divatox in most respects, it still took him over a hundred years to get around to building that base he promised her.
- Put on a Bus: Survived his final fight with the Rangers and vowed to return one day with an even more powerful Metallasaurus. Made a couple of cameos the following season.
- Quintessential British Gentleman: Fits this trope despite being an alien. When he first meets the rangers, he's shown having tea, and is even polite enough to offer them a muffin.
- Related in the Adaptation: Ritchihiker wasn't connected to Divatox's counterpart Zonnette at all.
- Spared by the Adaptation: His counterpart, Instructor Ritchhiker, perished when his upgraded Braking mecha was destroyed, but Havoc survives, vowing to return with a new one. Averted the following season when he dies as a result of Zordon's energy wave.
Mooks & Monsters
PiranhatronsDivatox's fish like foot soldiers.
- The Cameo: Two made an appearance during Lost Galaxy.
- Canon Immigrant: They are Power Ranger exclusive foot soldiers.
- Early-Installment Weirdness: In the movie, they look a lot different, almost human-like in armor, as opposed to the fish-like aliens they were in the TV show. Plus they were intelligible with human voices and two of them were more humanoid with visible long hair.
- Mooks: For the majority of Turbo.
- The Unintelligible: They speak with their own language in the series. In the movie, they spoke like normal humans.
Putra PodsDivatox's stegosaurid-esque foot soldiers.
- Canon Immigrant: Like the Piranhatrons, the Putra Pods are Power Ranger exclusive foot soldiers.
- Mooks: Another set of foot soldiers Divatox had, but only for the movie and a few episodes.
- Tough Armored Dinosaur: Based on the stegosaurus.
ChromitesGeneral Havoc's elite robotic foot soldiers.
- Demoted to Extra: The Chromites were the main foot soldiers in Carranger, but were replaced by the Piranhatrons for the majority of Turbo.
- Elite Mooks: Much stronger foot soldiers than the Piranhatrons.
- Adapted Out: GG Goki-Chan* , JJ Jetton,* VV Goriin, DD Donmo, HH Wasshoishoi, SS Sutatanzo, Bara Mobile and II Goki-Chan were not adapted into the season.
- Demoted to Extra: RR Rii only appeared in the toy-line and a commercial, dubbed Hammeron.
- Adaptational Early Appearance: MM Mogu was the third Gorotsuki to fight the Carrangers, while Amphibitor is the first proper monster to fight the Turbo Rangers.
- Amphibian Assault: An evil frog monster.
- I'm a Humanitarian: Had a desire to eat the Rangers after growing.
- Improbable Weapon User: Wields a knife and fork.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: He has red eyes and is an evil monster.
- Canon Foreigner: There was no grey-colored Wumpers in Carranger.
- Elite Mook: He's a special version of the secondary footsoldiers.
- Godzilla Threshold: Shadow Chromite turned out to be tougher than the Rangers thought, and with the detonator near to expolde, they were forced to summon the Turbo Megazord and destroy him by blocking the sun.
- Light Is Not Good: A literal example as the Shadow Rangers are made of light, and are evil.
- Logical Weakness: Sunlight is required to make shadows, so blocking it would cause not only the Shadow Rangers to vanish but also Shadow Chromite.
- The Psycho Rangers: The Shadow Rangers.
- The Artifact: He is dressed as a dishwasher because that was his occupation in Carranger.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: Divatox had Porto use his special transformation spray on Visceron to turn him evil.
- Eye Laser: He had them in his brainwashed state.
- Spared by the Adaptation: He survived while his Carranger counterpart bit the dust.
- Took a Level in Dumbass: It seems that turning evil also dropped Visceron's intelligence as he turned all goofy and dumb. Fortunately, his intelligence was restored after being turned back to normal.
The Demon Racers
- Badass Driver: The first Demon Racer was a capable driver, able to match Adam in a drag race.
- Cloning Blues: Subverted as the second Demon Racer didn't care that he was a clone.
- Drives Like Crazy: Both of them.
- Our Demons Are Different: They're a pair of devil-themed alien racers.
- Unrelated in the Adaptation: The two Demon Racers in Carranger were siblings, not clones.

- Truth and Lies: He can put on a spell on people to make them lie continuously, causing Pirahnatrons to appear continually.
- A Dog Named "Dog": A Pharaoh monster named "Pharaoh".
- Adaptation Relationship Overhaul: His '"Carranger'' counterpart was not the fiancée to Divatox's counterpart (Zonnette).
- The Bus Came Back: He returns in In Space during "Countdown To Destruction, Part 1", where he's part of the Machine Empire's army.
- Butt-Monkey: Poor Pharaoh gets dragged by his ex-fiancee into one of her schemes, loses his staff (source of his power) briefly, gets his butt kicked by a bunch of kids (Not even the Rangers, just two bratty kids) and when things finally look like they were going up, his staff was destroyed with him soon following.
- Nefarious Pharaoh: Pharaoh is basically themed after an Egyptian pharaoh, on more accurately, Anubis.
- Playing with Fire: He can shoot torrents of fire from his mouth. His most powerful attack is using the sun's power to create a powerful beam.
- The Worf Effect: Without his staff, he's useless, as the Rangers found out after breaking it.

- Gravity Master: He was able to make Kat float by removing some weight off her body, while also putting weight on Tommy and Adam to slow them down.
- Mad Mathematician: He is themed after a math teacher.

- Adaptational Late Appearance: Its Carranger counterpart was the first monster the rangers faced. In Turbo, the rangers faced it quite a bit later.
- Sentient Vehicle: A moving firetruck.
- Adapted Out: His sentai counterpart had an ability that blocked the Carrangers' Ranger Vehicles (the Turbo Zords) from coming to them. This is not used in '"Turbo'' so it makes no sense why the Rangers did not summon their Zords when he returned as a giant.
- Alliterative Name: Terror Tooth.
- Animal Motif: Themed after a snapping turtle.
- Came Back Strong: After somehow surviving the Turbo Megazord's finishing move, he came back with a stronger appearance.

- Badass Biker: Rides in his own motorcycle. He even gave one to Elgar when they fought against the Rangers.
- Bash Brothers: Acted as one with Elgar.
- Make My Monster Grow: Unusually for one of Divatox's monsters, Electrovolt grows giant-sized by absorbing the motorcycles instead of having the torpedoes explode near him.
- Shock and Awe: He has electric-based attacks.
Wolfgang Amadeus Griller
- Adaptational Late Appearance: His Carranger counterpart was the first official Monster of the Week the Rangers faced. Here, Griller is fought late into the first half of the season.
- Dies Differently in Adaptation: His Carranger counterpart was destroyed by passing aliens who were seriously annoyed by the noise he caused. Power Rangers went the less silly route by just having Tommy and the Blue Senturion destroy him with a couple of blasts from their blasters.
- Our Zombies Are Different: He's themed after a zombie despite being an alien.
- Sentient Vehicle: Thanks in part to his musical abilities, Wolfgang can turn cars sentient and have them assault the city.
- Shout-Out: To Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

- Green and Mean: Green, ugly, and evil
- Meaningful Name: An insect-themed monster that can shrink anybody of his choosing.
- Adapted Out:
- His Carranger counterpart originally wore a bathrobe before dressing down.
- He also had a beam gun that was not used. Said beam would have made the Rangers undress and catch their death of cold.
- Ascended Extra: Appeared in two episodes compared to his Carranger's one.
- Innocuously Important Episode: He would be the final monster the four veteran Rangers would face off against as at the end of the episode, Tommy, Adam, Tanya, and Kat, would pass their powers to T.J., Carlos, Ashley, and Cassie.
- Mad Bomber: Can throw explosive canteens.
- Octopoid Aliens: Downplayed. He's themed after an octopus but lacks any tentacles.
- Playing with Fire: It's in his name.
- A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing: Took on the appearance of a fashion designer.
- Big "NO!": Her final words before the Ranger destroy her.
- Combat Tentacles: Created some in the form of fabric.
- The Fashionista: Themed after a fashion designer.
- Hate Plague: Created jackets that when put on, causes people to become jerks. It's not only for humans but for robots and Megazords apparently.

- Death by Irony: Destroyed by the two vehicles he was sent to collect.
- Jet Pack: Sports one on his back, which allows him to fly.
- Powerful Pick: Wields one as his main weapon.
- Toothy Bird: He's an alien archaeopteryx.
Mad Mike the Pizza Chef
- Brainwashed and Crazy: He inflicted this to both Lightning Cruiser and Storm Blaster by throwing pizzas at their wheels. The Blue Senturion manages to free them by forcing them to stop so the pizzas would disloge from their wheels.Blue Senturion: "The evil pizzas were no match for a simple stop light."
- Improbable Weapon User: Used pizza discs as his weapon.
- Near-Villain Victory: As ridiculous as his goal was (which is saying a lot for this season), he would have eaten the Rangers had the Blue Senturion not shown up.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Pizza, if it was not obvious.
- Wearing a Flag on Your Head: Mad Mike's physical appearance has the color scheme of Italy's flag.
- Invisibility: Cannot only turn himself invisible but also objects and other people.
- Magic Staff: Wields a staff that also allows him to activate his invisibility powers.
- Maniac Monkeys: An evil orangutan monster.
- Logical Weakness: While invisible, he can still be detected with the use of a tracking device (ex: the Turbo Navigator).
- Warrior Monk: An evil shaman monster.
- The Artifact: Despite being a clock themed monster, Clockster's head resembles a weighing scale. This is because his Carranger counterpart was themed after one.
- "Groundhog Day" Loop: Attempted this in order to fix Divatox's plan of freezing the sun. While it did work initially, his powers were upgraded into the trope below.
- Time Stands Still: His mistake caused time to freeze in place.
- Too Dumb to Live: Touches Divatox's freezing cell out of pure curiosity, resulting in the above Time Stands Still.
- Epic Fail: Was originally supposed to kill the Rangers and destroy the Magnet, but was violently pulled off the Space Base and killed by the Rangers' super Magnet without even fighting against the Rangers themselves!
- Flat Character: She's onscreen for less than a minute, with no characterisation; her only purpose was to (unintentionally) break the Space Base's laser cannon.
- Original Generation: A Power Rangers exclusive monster, made by combining the head and hands of Machine Beast Tamer Keris (who was never used in Zeo) and the body of Ballinger Z (a monster who only appeared in promotional pictures).
- The Artifact: Crosspatch is covered in kimchi as his Carranger counterpart was a connoisseur of the product.
- Big "NO!": Yells this out when the giant battery pack was about to crush him.
- Cool Sword: Wields one in his duel against T.J.
- Grand Theft Me: Piloted the stolen Turbo Megazord with four Chromites against the Rangers.
- Combat Tentacles: Capable of trapping his enemies with his film rolls.
- Demoted to Extra: Flashhead had his own episode in Carranger, but here, he shared an episode with Voltmeister. This was due to the fact most of his ground footage featured White Racer, an unused character.
- Magical Camera: His camera can trap people inside the film.
- Paparazzi: Themed after one.
- The Beastmaster: Themed after an animal trainer.
- Demoted to Extra: Voltmeister had his own episode in Carranger, but here, he shared an episode with Flashhead. This was due to the fact most of his footage was spent searching for a creature that Turbo never adapted, along with the fact that Justin's sentai counterpart was shown in a lot of his footage unmorphed.
- Early-Bird Cameo: Appeared in Divatox's rally during the season premiere.
- Shock and Awe: It's in his name. He can conduct electricity through his whip.
- Whip It Good: His main weapon.
- Adaptation Expansion: He was responsible for the Blue Senturion turning evil in Turbo.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: It was thanks to one of his coins that caused the Blue Senturion to become evil and fight the Rangers. And unlike a lot of other examples, the effects did not go away upon Wicked Wisher's death, meaning the Rangers had to figure out a plan the following episode to bring their ally back.
- Mad Bomber: Could throw explosive coins.
- Alliterative Name: Wild Weeder.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: Can inflict mind-controlling seeds, turning people into Diva-Drones.
- Bee Afraid: Has the ability to summon some Mutant Bees, with one growing giant size.
- Early-Bird Cameo: Appeared in Divatox's rally during the season premiere.
- Green Thumb: True to his gardener theme, Wild Weeder can control plant life to his liking.
- Whip It Good: Wields a vine like whip as his main weapon.
- Alliterative Name: Torch Tiger.
- Badass Biker: Rides in his own motorcycle.
- Early-Bird Cameo: Appeared in Divatox's rally during the season premiere.
- Panthera Awesome: A tiger-themed monster.
- Playing with Fire: At first it was an Informed Ability as he could barely do a flame attack. But after ingesting the Ranger's experimental fuel, he gains this.
- A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing: Disguised himself as a teenager named Manny to steal Ashley's lucky wrench.
- The Engineer: His main theme is a mechanic.
- Improbable Weapon User: Uses a wrench as his main weapon, but given that he is a mechanic-themed monster, this isn't all surprising.
- Adaptational Early Appearance: EE Musubinofu was the last monster the Carranger's fought before their final battles against Bowzock generals. Here, he appears well before Goldgoyle comes into the picture.
- The Artifact: He looked more cupid-themed as in Carranger, he was a love letter-themed monster.
- Composite Character: A weird example. In addition to being from Carranger, his role of destroying a forest was from Mushroom Nezire: A monster from Megaranger that would be adapted into In Space.
- Dies Differently in Adaptation: Downplayed. While he did die at the hands of the four Rescuezords like in Carranger, the scene was edited to remove Radiacar (a Sentai-only zord that belonged to White Racer, a character Turbo never adapted).
- The Straight and Arrow Path: Wields one as his main weapon.
Crash & the Creeps
- A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing: They disguised themselves as a teenage band.
- Animal Motifs: Besides Crash, the Creeps have different animal motifs.
- Maniac Monkeys: Blue Creep is based on a Gorilla.
- Amphibian Assault: Green Creep is based on a frog.
- Feathered Fiend: Yellow Creep is based on a turkey.
- Cats Are Mean: Pink Creep is based on a white cat.
- Death by Adaptation: The four other Creeps died by the Ranger's R.A.M Cannon, unlike their Carranger counterparts who survived their fight, returned to being mere regulars of the villains' Bad-Guy Bar and finally redeemed themselves in the finale alongside the other surviving Bowzock.
- Demoted to Extra: Their spotlight episode is their sole appearance, unlike their Carranger counterparts (who regularly appeared as background extras before and after their stint as the Zokurangers.
- The Psycho Rangers: Downplayed. While not overtly made clear unlike their Carranger counterparts, the Zokurangers, they are technically another prototype version for Power Rangers, and just a season before the actual Trope Makers arrived. Granted they don't really resemble the team much outside of colors.
- The Voiceless: The four other Creeps never talked.
- Nice Job Fixing It, Villain: He accidentally used his goo in Elgar's Terrorzord, turning it into a camel.
- Squishy Wizard: Statistically, he might be the weakest monster in Turbo as he was practically useless without his goo.
- Voiced by: Michael McConnohie
- Adaptational Late Appearance: Strikeout's Carranger counterpart appeared around the first half of the sentai. Here, he appears well into the second half of Turbo.
- Baseball Episode: An evil baseball monster that fought the Rangers to a stand still. T.J. even brought out a baseball bat to take on Strikeout's pitches.
- Early-Bird Cameo: Appeared in Divatox's rally during the season premiere.
- Improbable Weapon User: Throws powerful baseballs.
- Meaningful Name: He's a baseball monster and his name is Strikeout (as in striking out at bat).
- Mythology Gag: A rather unavoidable one as he has a Bowzock tattoo (the main antagonists from Carranger) on his chest.
- Adapted Out: He had an alternate form from Carranger that was not used.
- Drop the Hammer: His main weapon, which also has a drill on the other end.
- Our Vampires Are Different: A goofy-looking vampire.
- Playing with Fire: Can breathe fire.
- Shapeshifting: Would not be a vampire if he didn't turn into a bat.
- Vampire Vords: It's not surprising that he would have this.
- The Worf Effect: For a penultimate monster, he was strong and took on both Megazords with no problem. However, when the Rangers decided to combine their Zords into the Rescue Turbo Megazord, that's when Count Nocturne was in trouble.
- Adapted Out: He only used his Carrangers "Super Strong form", and not his "Emperor form" note .
- Combat Tentacles: He can launch red tentacles from his shoulders to wrap his targets. They can even emit red electricity from them.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: That's the polite way of describing his battle with the Rangers. He was so overpowered, it led to the loss of both the Turbo and Rescue Megazords!
- Demoted to Extra: Goldgoyle was the main antagonist and leader of the Bowzock Group in Carranger. In Power Rangers, he's the final monster Divatox sent down.
- Dies Differently in Adaptation: In Carranger, he was shrunk down by accidentally eating stale imo-youkan (which was the Sentai's method of growing the monsters) thrown by Rygorg's counterpart and defeated on the ground. But in Power Rangers, he was destroyed giant-sized when T.J. sent the Turbo R.A.M. into his mouth on full power.
- Feed It a Bomb: How he is finally defeated. After both of their Megazords were destroyed, T.J. had no other choice but to launch the Turbo R.A.M. at full power into his mouth. This was what finally defeated Goldgoyle.
- The Juggernaut: He is virtually invincible. Neither of the Megazords were able to do any damage to him, and they quickly wind up being destroyed. The only way to defeat him was by essentially causing him to swallow a makeshift bomb from the Turbo R.A.M's self destruction to blow him up from the inside.
- Made of Iron: Well more of "Made of gold", but he was easily the most durable monster this season.
- My Death Is Just the Beginning: While the Rangers eventually destroy him, it took the loss of two Megazords and their power weapons to do so, leaving them very weakened when Divatox's army stormed the Power Chamber.
- No-Sell: Almost everything he gets hit by doesn't even scratches him. The Rescue Megazord's Finishing Move gets thrown back at the Zord. The same Megazord self-destructing doesn't damage him. The Turbo Megazord's Finishing Move doesn't even slow him down.
- Shock and Awe: He can emit red lightning from his mouth and from his tentacles.
- Small Role, Big Impact: His appearance is brief, but he sets up the series ending on a low note by destroying both Megazords and the Rangers having to sacrifice their weapons to kill him.
- Taking You with Me: On the receiving end as the Rangers used the Rescue Megazord's self-destruction sequence as a last-ditch effort. It failed.
- Token Competent Minion: Goldgoyle was by far the most powerful and dangerous Monster of the Week in the season, and easily the most competent of Divatox's minions. He put up such a tough fight that the Rangers had to sacrifice both their Megazords to take him out. This was in stark contrast to the dimwitted Elgar and the slow, lumbering Rygog. Goldgoyle also kicked off the Rangers' Darkest Hour as the villains were able to locate the heroes' command center when they went back to it to regroup and him decimating their Zords ensured that Divatox's forces would have it much easier in raiding the base.
- Adapted Out: Norishiron Final and Norishiron Extra are the only evil mecha from Carranger not to appear.
MetallosaurusA dinosaur robot piloted by General Havoc.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Dished it out against the Turbo Megazord in its debut battle. However, it soon went on the receiving end against the Rescue Zords.
- Humongous Mecha: It's a giant robot piloted by General Havoc.
- Power Up Letdown: Despite getting an upgrade, it didn't match the Rescue Megazord.
- Shout-Out: Its two forms are ones to Mecha Godzilla and Gigan from Godzilla.
- The Worf Effect: It was a tough opponent against the Rangers when they used the Turbo Megazord. But they managed to turn the tide with the Rescue Zords.
TerrorzordAn evil zord Porto created that Elgar piloted.
- Near-Villain Victory: It would have destroyed both the Rescue Megazord and Robo Racer in its debut fight... if its arm didn't break off due to Porto failing to put a cotter pin into it. And probably in the rematch if Mr. Goorific hadn't unintentionally sprayed his transformation goo on its face.
- Spared by the Adaptation: In Carranger, he was reverted to its original cardboard cutout and exploded afterwards for whatever reason. In Power Rangers Turbo, it was turned into a camel.
DivazordsA trio of evil zords Porto created from stolen Zord technology.
- Animal Mecha:
- Cats Are Mean: Catzord
- Threatening Shark: Sharkzord
- Noble Bird of Prey: Eaglezord
- Land, Sea, Sky: Catzord (land), Sharkzord (sea), and Eaglezord (sky).
- This Is a Drill: The Sharkzord has one on its left hand.
