Voiced by: Laura Torres (Latin American Spanish)

Tanya Sloan / Zeo Ranger II

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/prz_rg_tanya.jpg

Portrayed by: Nakia Burrise
Voiced by: Pilar Escandón (Latin American Spanish)

When Master Vile turned the Rangers into children with the Orb of Doom, Aisha, the second Mighty Morphin Yellow Ranger, found Zeo Subcrystal in Africa, only to give it to Tanya in her place. After growing to a teenager with the others, Tanya joined the four veteran Rangers as Zeo Ranger II - Yellow.

Note: This section is only for tropes used in Zeo. For the rest, see the character sheet for Power Rangers Turbo.


  • The Chick: Although she's more tomboyish than Catherine, she's the weakest of the Rangers.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Almost rivals Kimberly and Aisha with her snappy comebacks, though while Aisha was more outspoken, Tanya is more articulate.
  • Dual Wield: She was Zeo Ranger 2 and had that going for her a bit.
  • Fighting with Chucks: Her signature weapon is a pair of nunchucks.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Her nunchucks.
  • Instant Expert: Despite having only become a Ranger in the last five minutes of Mighty Morphin', Tanya has no problem morphing or fighting with the others in the second episode.
  • Naïve Newcomer: The least experienced on the team.
  • Tomboy: Well, the most tomboyish female ranger up until that point.
  • Ship Tease: A relationship between her and Adam is hinted throughout the series.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Tomboy to Kat's Girly Girl.
  • Younger Than They Look: It's bad enough her actress wasn't really a teen, but Nakia looked even older than her real age.

Rocky DeSantos / Zeo Ranger III

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/prz_rg_rocky.jpg

Portrayed by: Steve Cardenas
Voiced by: Sergio Bonilla (Latin American Spanish)

The second Mighty Morphin Red Ranger, Rocky found his Zeo Sub-crystal in Mexico as a child. After having his original age restored, Rocky became Zeo Ranger III - Blue.

Note: This section is only for tropes used in Zeo. For the rest, see the character sheet for Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers.


  • Big Eater: He has a voracious appetite.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: His signature weapon
  • Butt-Monkey: Rocky has the absolute worst luck. Throughout the series all manner of unfortunate things happen to him, starting with being demoted down to Blue Ranger, getting unfairly blamed for problems, nearly being turned into a plant by a monster created from a plant he'd accidentally created. It eventually reaches its apex in the transition between Zeo and Turbo when he's hospitalized.
  • The Everyman
  • Heroic BSoD: Went through one in "Mondo's Last Stand" when he was convinced that Jason was replacing him.
  • Hurricane of Puns: When he got turned into a plant in "A Few Bad Seeds." It involved a bit of Getting Crap Past the Radar as well, as he also made some suggestive comments about Kat:
    Rocky: Nice leaves!
    Kat: I'm sorry? "Nice leaves?"
    Rocky: Yeah, nice leaves! Your branches aren't too bad, either.
  • I Always Wanted to Say That: In "Invasion of the Ranger Snatchers," the Rangers are on horseback, and Rocky says "Let's head 'em off at the pass!"
  • The Lancer: Properly this time. His comedic and goofy persona helps balance out Tommy, the almost perfect leader.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: This is pretty much his role on the team now and he's not very happy about it.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Manly Man to Adam's Sensitive Guy.

Adam Park / Zeo Ranger IV

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/prz_rg_adam.jpg

The second Mighty Morphin Black Ranger, Adam found his Zeo Subcrystal in North Korea as a child. After having his original age restored, Adam became Zeo Ranger IV - Green.

Portrayed by: Johnny Yong Bosch
Voiced by: Rubén León (Mexico - Latin American Spanish)

Note: This section is only for tropes used in Zeo. For the rest, see the character sheets for Mighty Morphin, and Turbo.


  • An Axe to Grind: His signature weapons are a pair of hatchets.
  • The Big Guy: He's still quiet and gentle but is seen practicing martial arts more often than any other character, and that's saying a lot on this show.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Johnny Yong Bosch claims that about halfway through this season (Power Rangers being his very first acting job) he figured out Adam could be funny.
  • Genius Bruiser: He does martial arts and he is rather smart.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Sensitive Guy to Rocky's Manly Man.
  • Ship Tease: With Tanya.

Tommy Oliver / Zeo Ranger V

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/prz_rg_tommy.jpg

Portrayed by: Jason David Frank
Voiced by: Adrián Fogarty (eps. 1-42, Latin American Spanish), Daniel Abundis (eps. 43-50, Latin American Spanish)

The Mighty Morphin Green and White Ranger, Tommy found his Zeo Subcrystal in a Native American Village as a child. After having his original age restored, Tommy became Zeo Ranger V - Red.

Note: This section is only for tropes used in Zeo. For the rest, see the character sheets for Mighty Morphin, Turbo, and Dino Thunder.


  • Criminal Amnesiac: Had his mind messed about by Prince Gasket in "King for a Day."
  • Evil Is Hammy: In "King for a Day," Prince Gasket brainwashed Tommy into thinking he was their king and that the other Power Rangers were his enemies. He then proceeds to act just as hammy as he did when he was the evil Green Ranger.
  • Evil Laugh: Got it back when he was brainwashed in "King for a Day."
  • The Hero
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: His signature weapon as the tradition with most Red Rangers.
  • Law of Chromatic Superiority: As the Red Ranger, Tommy is in charge, gets his own individual Zord, and is usually the one to use the Battle Wield.
  • The Leader: Even lead the bad guys at one point
  • Tall, Dark, and Handsome: His outfits are less fanservice-y now, but the trope still applies.
  • Two First Names: His first and last names can both be first names.

Trey of Triforia / Gold Ranger I

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/treyoftriforia.jpg

Portrayed by: Tom, Tim and Ted DiFilippo
Voiced by: Brad Hawkins; Eduardo Garza, José Antonio Macías and Gabriel Gama (Latin American Spanish)

When the battle between the Zeo Rangers and the Machine Empire was growing intense, a mysterious Gold Ranger appeared to help the Rangers out. While his identity was secretive, he was know as Trey of Triforia, a Triforian with three distinct personalities.


  • Adapted Out: Originally, King Ranger had his own version of the Choriki Braces. The Gold Ranger just uses his staff as a Morpher.
  • Bizarre Alien Biology: While he's a Human Alien, his species apparently has this, most obviously by being three different people in a single body that can split apart if things go wrong. This is a plot point, as the Gold Ranger powers are made for a Triforian's physiology rather than a human's, which is the cause of Jason's issues with the powers.
  • Bling-Bling-BANG!: He's not the Gold Ranger for nothing with a golden shield and arm bands.
  • Bling of War
  • Hero of Another Story: He's the Gold Ranger defending the planet Triforia and his species are apparently interstellar peace keepers.
  • Literal Split Personality: Split into three different people: Trey of Heart, Trey of Wisdom, and Trey of Courage. And no, this isn't a reference to The Triforce. This is a racial trait: all Triforians naturally have three distinct personalities that can split apart if things go wrong.
  • Meaningful Name: Trey is a name meaning three.
  • Red Herring: There were several people - Including Billy, Skull of all people, and Tommy's brother David - teased as being the Gold Ranger's secret identity.
  • Sixth Ranger: Subverted, in that he never actually joins the team, remaining an ally. According to his actors, this trope was intended to be played straight but never materialized.
  • Stranger Behind the Mask: He never appears out-of-suit until the moment it is revealed that he is the Gold Ranger.

Jason Lee Scott / Gold Ranger II

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/prz_rg_jason.jpg

Portrayed by: Austin St. John
Voiced by: Alfonso Obregón Inclán (Latin American Spanish)

The original Mighty Morphin Red Ranger, Jason left Angel Grove to go to the Peace Conference in Switzerland. However, when Trey was forcibly separated into his three personalities, Jason's friend Tommy came up to him to become a Power Ranger once again, and he became the second Gold Ranger.

Note: This section is only for tropes used in Zeo. For the rest, see the character sheet for Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers.


  • Bling-Bling-BANG!: He's not the Gold Ranger for nothing with a golden shield and arm bands.
  • Bling of War: A gold shield that takes up almost the entire torso.
  • Cast from Lifespan: The Gold Ranger powers are tied in to Jason's life force, and so the Machine Empire do their best to wear him down, which causes his powers to start fritzing by the end of the series. It gets bad enough that Jason nearly dies. This is a result of Trey being a Human Alien with Bizarre Alien Biology, which makes powers made specifically for him not mesh perfectly with human biology.
  • Deadly Upgrade: From a glance, the Gold Ranger powers are a lot stronger than the Red Ranger powers he once had, but as they were not made for a Earth human, they slowly drained his life force.
  • He's Back: His return was easily the one of the most memorable moments in the season and it's treated as such.

    Allies 

Billy Cranston

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/billy2.jpg

Portrayed by: David Yost
Voiced by: Carlos Íñigo (Latin American Spanish)
The original Mighty Morphin Blue Ranger, Billy voluntarily stepped down from active duty by acting as technical support for the Zeo Rangers, often creating new weapons for his friends.
  • Artistic License – Physics: "Negatively charged proton molecules"? Admittedly, most people think it's just a Lame Excuse to hide that something else is causing the power rejection.
  • Brought Down to Normal: Due to the events of the Mighty Morphin' Alien Rangers miniseries, he's depowered, but still here.
  • Character Development: In a continuation from his development in the previous series Billy has grown into an even more confident leader and serves as Zordon's Number One alongside Alpha. After graduating from high school, he basically serves this role full-time.
  • Demoted to Extra: Sort of. While he still got billing in the credits, he is no longer a Ranger here, just Mission Control.
  • Put on a Bus: In "Rangers of Two Worlds."
  • Rapid Aging: Apparently the explosion messed with his molecules more then he thought as (when combined with the fact he managed to re-age himself with a device back when the entire team became children last season) they aged him into an old man. Forcing him to have to go with the Aquaians homeworld to restore his youth. He winds up staying there when he falls in love with one of the female scientists and that is the last we see of him until Power Rangers Megaforce. Albeit as a Fake Shemp.note 
  • Red Herring: Was suspected by Rocky (and fans) to be the Gold Ranger. Tried to be said Ranger - but particles his body received from the Command Center's explosion rejected the power.
  • The Smart Guy: A rare example where there is a Five-Man Band, but he's not in it.

Zordon

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/prz_al_zordon.jpg

Voiced by: Bob Manahan, Jorge Santos (Latin American Spanish)
The original mentor to the Mighty Morpin team, and continued to guide the Rangers during their fight against the Machine Empire.

Alpha 5

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/prz_al_alpha_1_8.jpg

Voiced by: Richard Steven Horvitz, Rocío Prado (Latin American Spanish)
Zordon's robotic assistant.

Auric the Conqueror

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zeo_auric.jpg

Voiced by: Derek Stephen Prince, Héctor Reynoso (ep. 38, Latin American Spanish), Alfonso Mellado (later episodes, Latin American Spanish)
An ancient tiki warrior discovered by Tanya's parents, who sent him to her and the Rangers.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: He was last seen in "Rangers of Two Worlds, Part 2" unsuccessfully facing the monsters controlling the Megazords. Unlike with Ninjor, the show didn't provide even the slimmest explanation of where he went afterwards.
  • Eenie, Meenie, Miny Moai: Auric's dormant form when he's not actively helping the Rangers.
  • The Kid with the Remote Control: How he basically functions. While a sentient being in his own right, he can only be awakened and serves whoever possesses his key (as long as they're not evil and have a pure and just request).
  • Make My Monster Grow: He's capable of making himself grow to giant size.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: Is normally trapped in the form of a small tiki head with a key hole in its forehead. Jason was given Auric's key to hold onto by Tanya.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Despite his honor and sense of justice, Auric is fairly easy to trick. When Louie Kaboom outright commands Auric to help him destroy the Earth, Auric absolutely refuses. But when Prince Sprocket starts crying and telling Auric of the evil beings known as the Power Rangers who are attacking the Earth, Auric immediately heads off to battle the "villains."

Ernie

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ernie_9.jpg

Portrayed by: Richard Genelle
Voiced by: Luis Alfonso Padilla (Latin American Spanish)
The owner and bartender of the Youth Center.

Bulk & Skull

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bulk_and_skull2.jpg

Portrayed by: Paul Schrier (Bulk) and Jason Narvy (Skull)
Voiced by: Carlos del Campo (Bulk, Latin American Spanish) and Roberto Carrillo (Skull, Latin American Spanish)
The comedic duo who continued as junior police officers since Season 3. After Lt. Stone was fired, they quit the force in protest and joined their mentor in his private detective business.
  • Badass Normal: In "King for a Day, Part 2," they fended off Cogs, the mooks that Rangers preferred to fight while morphed.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: They're close friends of the same gender.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: They serve to provide comic relief.
  • Those Two Guys: As always, they are (almost) never seen without each other. note 

Lieutenant/Detective Stone

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/detective_stone_zeo.jpg

Portrayed by: Gregg Bullock
Voiced by: Jesús Barrero (base voice, Latin American Spanish), Herman López (ep. 38, Latin American Spanish)
The head of the Junior Police Force, but was fired mid season after one of Bulk and Skull's mishaps. However, he decided to use it as a way to open up his own detective agency.
  • Ascended Extra: As with Ernie, Stone was promoted to main cast after initially being a recurring character.
  • Badass Normal: In "Graduation Blues," he stumbled upon Goldar and Rito - thinking an invasion was a foot. He chased them all over the park to try to arrest them. Granted, the two were amnesic and not up to no good, but Stone didn't know that.
  • Hidden Depths: Stone turns out to have enough knowledge on coffee to write an entire book on the subject.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: No matter how much they inevitably screw up, he never stops assigning Bulk and Skull to tasks.
    • However, he does finally get wise by the end of the series.
  • Mean Boss: He switches between this and Benevolent Boss. He's prone to yelling and punishment, but of course, he's the boss of Bulk and Skull. Given their antics, anyone else would've fired them immediately, but Stone obviously has a soft spot for them.
  • Must Have Caffeine: He knows so much about coffee, he's written a book on the subject. titled In the Know About Joe.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure

    The Machine Empire 

King Mondo

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/king_mondo.jpg

Voiced by: David Stenstrom, Carlos Águila (eps. 1 and 2, Latin American Spanish), Humberto Vélez (base voice, Latin American Spanish)

The ruler of the Machine Empire, King Mondo and his family separated from the United Alliance of Evil so they could invade Earth.


  • Adaptational Jerkass: Bacchushund would never act like a Jerkass to Buldont (in both forms) or chase him and Multiwa away from his castle.
  • Adipose Rex: Mondo's a big-built 'bot. On more than one occasion, Machina's dialogue suggests he's got the robot equivalent of blood pressure problems.
  • Big Bad: The main antagonist of Zeo.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: When the Rangers first challenge him, he's happy to have a Worthy Opponent because Victory Is Boring. Needless to say, they prove far more formidable than he was counting on.
  • Cross-Popping Veins: A fixed set of them are molded onto King Mondo's faceplate.
  • Cut His Heart Out with a Spoon: Downplayed. While he did once threaten to punish Klank's failure by making him "spend the next thousand years picking up scrap metal on the dark side of Alpha Centauri," he never followed through.
  • Child Hater: He really dislikes human children.
  • Crazy-Prepared: After falling to the Rangers, he had some unknown servants gather what was left, and was rebuilt by someone or something in a secret location that even his family didn't know about. Machina claims that it has happened before.
  • Did Not See That Coming: He thought the Rangers would be an 'amusing distraction' from the boredom of relatively easy victories he'd been having. The fact they'd prove strong enough to fight back and eventually defeat him never occurred to him, and he's not so much fun when it happens.
  • Fat Bastard: He's an overweight villain.
  • Graceful Loser: At least most of the time, and especially compared to most other 'Zordon Era' Power Ranger villains where whenever the Rangers foil his plans, he usually just calmly declares that he'll defeat them next time. Though even that starts to crumble at times.
  • Happily Married: To Queen Machina. The two spend a lot of their screen-time complimenting each other or exchanging cutesy nicknames with one another.
  • Motive Decay: When the Machine Empire first attacked Earth, it's because "our solar system is the final link in a chain of galaxies already conquered" by them. Conquering Earth would effectively give them control of the universe (or at least enough of it to prevent any opposition). The Zeo Rangers were initially viewed as an "interesting diversion" to make the conquest more entertaining. By the end of the season, though, Mondo is more interested in defeating the Rangers. Possibly justified in that the Rangers repeatedly defeated him (including briefly destroying him), making it personal.
  • Nonindicative Name: He's the king of the Machine Empire. Wrong title there.
  • Orcus on His Throne: Like any other Ranger Big Bad, he directs monsters against the Rangers. The trope is subverted, though, when he does fight the Rangers in "Mondo's Last Stand" and "Good as Gold." They wind up having no more trouble beating him than the average monster.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: His Ohranger counterpart didn't get rebuilt. Although his fate does catch up with him in In Space.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: A villainous example, having fought the Rangers personally on more than one occasion. Although he's not much tougher than your average Monster of the Week.
  • Victory Is Boring: The Empire has been steamrolling everything in their path, so Mondo is happy at first to find a Worthy Opponent in the Rangers. It doesn't last.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Whenever he really loses his cool, Mondo involuntarily shoots sparks from his ears and heavy steam emits from his crown.
  • Villainous Valor: He has no qualms about personally fighting the Rangers or their Zords to the bitter end, if need be.

Queen Machina

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zeo_queenmachina.jpg

Voiced by: Alex Borstein, Magda Giner (Latin American Spanish)

King Mondo's wife.


  • Affably Evil: Unlike most villains in the franchise, she isn't prone to temper tantrums or rage, and rarely even raises her voice; indeed, if not for the content of what she says, one might not even assume she was evil.
  • Child Hater: Much like her husband, Machina really doesn't like children, especially well-behaved ones.
  • High-Class Glass: Wears a monocle on her left eye.
  • Non-Mammal Mammaries: She's a robot with breasts, but not quite as noticeably as Archerina
  • Oh, No... Not Again!: Her reaction to Mondo being blown up. Sprocket understandably questions this, causing her to reveal Mondo could simply be rebuilt.
  • Orcus on His Throne: Despite being co-head of the Machine Empire, Machina never gets involved in a fight, and barely ever creates or even hires a monster. When Louie Kaboom takes over, she makes no direct effort to fight him.
  • Parental Favouritism: Between Gasket and Sprocket, when the two are together, she prefers Gasket, snubbing Sprocket as "the baby" right to his face. Ironically, her husband has the opposite opinion.
  • So Proud of You: Only not because of some accomplishment, but because Gasket and Sprocket are bickering with one another.

Prince Sprocket

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sprocket.jpg

Voiced by: Barbara Goodson, Rommy Mendoza (Latin American Spanish)

King Mondo and Queen Machina's youngest son.


  • Bratty Half-Pint: He's a litte kid, after all, so it makes sense that he lacks manners and tact. Most of his brattiness is directed at Klank.
  • Decomposite Character: The two bodies of Prince Buldont from Ohranger become two separate characters with Buldont's Prince form going to Prince Sprocket.
  • Glad I Thought of It: In some episodes, he's on either end of this where evil plans are concerned. In one case, he wants credit for his idea, doesn't get it, then blames Klank when things go wrong.
  • Off with His Head!: Rita and Zedd's bomb blows Sprocket's head clean off (with his decapitated head being in full view when last seen).
  • Uriah Gambit: His plan to get rid of Gasket was this, offering to use Klank and Orbus so they could fight the Megazord personally. (So the Rangers would cut them down and he'd be rid of them.)

Klank & Orbus

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/prz_klank_orbus.jpg

Voiced by: Oliver Page (Klank) and Barbara Goodson (Orbus), Víctor Delgado (Klank, Latin American Spanish) and Gustavo Carrillo (Orbus, Latin American Spanish)

Servants to the Royal House of Gadgetry, the two served as the Empire's monster enlargers.


  • Catchphrase: Klank tends to say, "Around and around and away we / ye go!" when tossing Orbus at a monster.
  • Big Guy, Little Guy: Klank is about the size of a human, Orbus is about the size of a cat.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Orbus gets several digs in, usually at Klank's expense. Also, when making a monster grow, Orbus usually makes a quip somehow related to their powers.
  • Expy: Klank is pretty much an evil Scottish version of C-3PO.
  • Eye Beams: Fighting isn't their forte, but Klank has this when he has to. Well, beam singular, given as he has only one eye.
  • Funny Robot: Most villain-originated humor on the show comes from their arguing.
  • Make My Monster Grow: Klank throws Orbus at the fallen body of the monster of the day, making it grow.
  • Those Two Bad Guys: They're kind of like evil versions of R2-D2 and C-3PO as far as attitude towards each other is concerned
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: They aren't shown during Zordon's Energy Wave so it's unknown if they survived.

Louie Kaboom

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tjob046.JPG

Voiced by: Lex Lang, Martín Soto (Latin American Spanish)

In an effort to destroy the Machine Empire, Rita and Zedd created Louie Kaboom, a missile themed robot monster, to infiltrate the Royal House of Gadgetry when it was at its most vulnerable. However, he soon broke away from their control and became the temporary leader of the Machine Empire.


  • Alas, Poor Villain: You almost feel sorry for him, given how he anguished he was, pleading to Archerina (who clearly didn't care) to forgive him, right before he exploded.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Despite his personality, he's deceptively dangerous and competent. He's also stronger than Mondo was, as he manages to overpower the Super Zeo Megazord and force the formation of Super Zeo Ultrazord to kill him while the Super Zeo Megazord easily destroyed Mondo even with the Damocles Sword.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: Sought to take over the Machine Empire (and win over Machina). He does succeed with the former, but his run only lasts a few episodes before Gasket and Archerina show up.
  • Character Development: He was a comedic villain at first, but after he rewired himself, his voice changes and becomes deeper. He also became more serious, more powerful, more cruel, more intelligent, and more treacherous.
  • Magitek: Like his creators Rita and Zedd, and unlike Mondo (who had to have his monsters constructed or created from pre-existing machines), he's capable of magically turning objects - including completely nonmechanical ones like a necklace - into monsters at will.
  • Killed Off for Real: Was defeated in battle with the Super Zeo Ultrazord, and unlike most of the villains, never made a return. Justified, naturally, as it is doubtful Zedd or the Machine Empire wanted him around enough to rebuild him.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: Created by Lord Zedd and Rita to take over the Machine Empire in Mondo's absence. Of course, they almost immediately lost control of him.
  • Smarter Than You Look: Despite his careless attitude and personality, he's surprisingly intelligent. His first act is to try and destroy his controller and failing that he simply rewires himself so it doesn't work anymore, and upgrades himself in the process. The one monster he puts genuine thought into making, the Midas Monster, is more well thought out (using humanity's own greed to feed it and make them destroy themselves) and dangerous than most of Mondo's (being the first monster that required every mecha in the Rangers' arsenal to actually beat).
  • The Starscream: While usurping King Mondo's throne, he mispronounced everyone's name from the beginning. He also banished Machina and Sprocket three episodes later.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Archerina turns him into this and sets him loose against the Rangers.
  • The Brute: Despite his careless personality, he is about as strong as Prince Gasket and more powerful than Mondo was.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: He ignores everyone's advice, including Klank and Orbus's sometimes, and decides to do things his own way.

Prince Gasket

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/prince_gasket.jpg

Voiced by: Douglas Sloan, Hermán Lopez (eps. 34-42, Latin American Spanish), Martín Soto (eps. 43-49 Latin American Spanish)

The oldest son to King Mondo and Queen Machina, Gasket was exiled after he married Archerina, daughter of one of Mondo's rivals. However, he was brought back by his mother in order to reclaim the throne and oust Louie Kaboom.


  • Adaptational Jerkass: Buldont used to be The Bully and a Spoiled Brat until Bacchushund's death resulted with him becoming a more responsible and effective leader as Kaiser Buldont after his disastrous fight against Bomber the Great. Here, he's a Dirty Coward and has kid Buldont's personality.
  • Adaptational Wimp: Kaiser Buldont is not only even more dangerous than his father or Bomber the Great, but also became the replacement Big Bad and True Final Boss of Ohranger.
  • Always Someone Better: He's this to Sprocket.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: He sought to become leader of the Machine Empire in King Mondo's absence, but failed to achieve any serious victories that would allow that ascension. Plus, he beat a hasty retreat after Mondo came back.
  • Big Brother Bully: Sprocket clearly has bad memories that date back to before Gasket eloped.
  • Bond Villain Stupidity: Oh brother, this guy successfully kidnaps Tommy and decides he's going to brainwash him to fight his team. As if that ever worked before. Eventually, he wises up and decides to do them in after they de-morph, but then it becomes clear it's too late to do so.
  • Cain and Abel: With his little brother, Sprocket. Gasket openly declares his intentions to take Sprocket to pieces to his face, but Sprocket ultimately wins out by nearly tricking his brother into getting killed by the Rangers.
  • Decomposite Character: The two bodies of Prince Buldont from Ohranger become two separate characters with Buldont's Kasier form going to Prince Gasket.
  • Demoted to Extra: He was the Final Boss in Ohranger.
  • Dirty Coward: What he becomes when his dad finally decides to have a word with him.
  • First-Name Basis: Every major villain will usually know the Rangers' names and tend to address them as such, but Gasket took it a bit farther. He refers to the Red Zeo Ranger not as "Tommy," but his actual first name ("Thomas").
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: His Stable Time Loop plan is foiled because his previous plan to brainwash Tommy altered his brain and left him with a mild Ripple Effect-Proof Memory that let him realize the time loop was happening.
  • Long Bus Trip: When Mondo finally cornered him, Gasket fled with Archerina and never returned.
    • Real Life Writes the Plot: The costumes for both him and Archerina practically disintegrated. Some parts were salvaged for later use, but the complete suits were irreparable.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Unlike the rest of his family, he's not the type to sit on the sidelines.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: His Ohranger counterpart just exploded instead of shrinking back down to normal size.
  • The Starscream: His rather blatant attempt to gain the throne of the Machine Empire (even though Mondo has disowned him as heir) makes him one.
  • The Unfavorite: Became this to King Mondo after he married Archerina, daughter of a sworn enemy of Mondo.
  • Warrior Prince: Unlike his father, he's not shy about fighting, and seems to never be without his weapon.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Part of the reason he sought to become leader of the Machine Empire was to prove that he was a worthy heir.

Princess Archerina

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/1aa8b80c03cf81c9d4a55ac853ee186f_5.jpg

Voiced by: Melora Harte, Cony Madera (Latin American Spanish)

An archer themed robot and Prince Gasket's wife. She arrived with him after he was summoned by Queen Machina.


  • Battle Couple: With Gasket.
  • Dark Action Girl: Much like Gasket, she's very capable in a fight.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: She developed a grudge against Kat (the Pink Ranger) very quickly (even though the two had never previously met), simply because she detested the fact that there was another female warrior around who liked bows and the color pink. (That's right. This was a rare case where the villain was upset with the realization that she and the heroine might be Not So Different.)
  • Fembot: She's a shapely robot woman who wears pink and casts love spells.
  • Guys Smash, Girls Shoot: Zigzagged. Archerina does tend to use a bow and arrows in combat, but on occasion she will use a sword as well.
  • Lady of War: Even more so than Gasket and had at times fought alongside him.
  • Long Bus Trip
  • Love Potion: She has arrows that can cause the target to fall in love with her, as she did to Louie.
  • Non-Mammal Mammaries: Despite being a robot, she probably has the biggest villain cleavage in the entire Zordon Era aside from movie era Divatox.
  • The Rival: Views Katherine as her rival.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: Same as Gasket, she was simply shrunk back to normal size while her Ohranger counterpart was destroyed.
  • The Straight and Arrow Path: Her Weapon of Choice; she has arrows that explode and others that act as a Love Potion.
  • Stripperific: For all intents and purposes, she was a robot wearing metal lingerie, complete with lace trim.
  • Unrelated in the Adaptation: Her Ohranger counterpart Princess Multiwa is Machina's counterpart Hysteria's niece. In Zeo, she's only related by marriage.
  • Uriah Gambit: She clearly had this in mind when she made Louie fall in love with her and told him to go after the Rangers, although she hoped he could take them out too.
  • The Vamp: She can trance men with her love arrows and make them carry out her every wish. This is possibly only effective on other robots, but she never used her love arrow on any flesh and blood characters, so it was never proven either way.

  • The Brute: Despite being an early monster, Silo proved to be a tough opponent to beat.
  • The Bus Came Back: One of the monsters that came back in A Golden Homecoming.

A clown themed monster sent to amplify a baby's cries to destructive levels.

People Pitcher

A energy-draining monster.
  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: Very arrogant in his abilities.
  • Energy Absorption: His main ability.
  • The Worf Effect: He was able to handle against the Zeo Megazord, but once Tommy got full control of the Red Battlezord, well bye bye Main Drain.
