Tim Langdon / Go-Buster Ranger Red


The Australian Red Ranger and one of the few blogger-made creations, he first showed up in a strange new world, meeting up with a man who may look like his boyfriend, but isn't. He briefly reunited with Orion and best friend Michael Grayson until they received their mission. Joined later by Mack Hartford and Shelby Watkins, he embarked in a very strange mission...


When arriving in San Angeles, his group was tasked to defeat the mooks in a style not atypical of first-person shooters until they defeated Shrek. Upon finding out that they fell into a trap and War captured Michael and Orion, Tim was chosen to fight against the Horseman. At first, he was devastated over the loss of his friend and boyfriend, until he decided to fight against him. After a particularly vicious battle and finding out that War was actually a brainwashed Dante, Tim defeated War with the Mega Prehistoric Lightning Blaster, and he was reunited with Michael and Orion once more.

  • Adaptational Heroism: Even if he dishes out the battle snark sometimes, and even with him getting serious if anyone dares to mess with his friends and boyfriend, Tim is nicer than his Sentai counterpart, Hiromu Sakurada, along with Reboot!Dante. Although here, the latter actually is just as nice and snarky as his counterpart, him being a jerk was prior to the endgame of DmC Devil May Cry.

  • All There in the Manual: Most of Tim's bio and some of his tropes are in We Are Our Avatars.
  • Badass Gay: He's dating Orion, but when duty calls, he shows to be very versatile in battles and very willing to not give up no matter the circumstances. He even defeats a Horseman!
  • By the Power of Grayskull!: Starts with his Morphin Brace saying "It's Morphin' Time!", and he finishes it up with "Let's Morphin'!"
  • Determinator: During his fight with War, Tim is slashed, shot at, thrown off his game with some jumpscares and creepy imagery, strangled in a chokehold, slammed against the floor, and beaten up. Not once has he ever given up on that fight, and the revelation of War's identity only serves to give him a second wind and defeat his enemy once and for all.
  • Expy: Has Hiromu Sakurada's designation, sports the fun-loving personality and battle snark as the original Dante, and shares about the same backstory as—ironically—reboot!Dante.
  • Advertisement:
  • Hypothetical Casting: Fancasted as one of his namesakes, Tim Phillipps. Also counts as a Casting Gag, given that he later faced off against War/Reboot!Dante, the very character he played in DmC Devil May Cry, and the character's personality is similar to the classic incarnation of Dante.
  • Glad-to-Be-Alive Sex: After saving his friends and defeating War, Orion and Tim decide to make love to one another as a celebration.
  • The Leader: Of not only his Go-Buster Rangers team, but during the Operation Overdrive mission.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: While very boisterous and fun-loving, you really don't want to mess with him, as War finds out the hard way.
  • Original Generation: He's one of the two blogger-made creations loosely based on an unused Sentai series or idea. In his case, it's because Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters was not adapted at the time when the arc was first written.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner: Gives one to War before he finishes him off with the Mega Prehistoric Lightning Blaster.
  • Red Ones Go Faster: Thanks to his Super Speed abilities bestowed to him in a necklace.
  • Transformation Trinket: The Morphin Brace.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: If his necklace is damaged or broken, his super speed slows down. War manages to do exactly that in Chapter 10 to slow his enemy down.
  • Weapon of Choice
    • BFG: Tim's Shutter Busters/Ebony and Ivory + Tim's Binocu-Blade/Rebellion + Michael's ninja-to + Orion's Super Silver Spear + Shelby's Dino Blade Blaster + Mack's Drive Lance = Mega Prehistoric Lightning Blaster.
    • Cool Guns: The Shutter Busters, given a custom black-and-white paint job and nicknamed "Ebony" and "Ivory".
    • Cool Sword: The Binocu-Blade he nicknames "Rebellion".

Cameron Jebo / Super Megaforce Silver (Alternate)

The actor best known for playing Orion. He first appeared in the first chapter, confused for the very character he played until Tim found him. Later on, Cameron took part in helping to free Blue Bay Harbor and save the other Ninja Storm Rangers and, later, the Hurricanegers.

While he didn't return in Super Sentai vs. Power Rangers III, he did show up in 3.5, having been displaced along with Andrew and Ciara when the curse occurred.

Orion / Super Megaforce Silver

The Sixth Ranger of Super Megaforce and Tim's boyfriend. He first showed up earlier in the arc, reunited with his ally. After getting the mission to save the worlds, he and the team went to San Angeles. After defeating Shrek, War captured Orion and Michael, and he was later freed when Tim defeated the Horseman.

Gai Yuuki / Black Condor

The Second-in-Command from Jetman. He arrived from Heaven to help the new group of All-Stars break their worlds free from the Horsemen's spell. In his world, he and his group were trapped thanks to the surviving Horsemen using a barrier to block entrance until Sean was seemingly killed. Upon arriving in the world, he saw his fellow Jetmen, but they had different plans in mind for him and his group...

  • Back from the Dead: Is forced to make it happen when he confronts his fellow Jetmen, becoming more physical than a ghost. At the end of the story, though, he avoids that fate and returns to Heaven, still playing poker with God.
  • By the Power of Grayskull!: "Cross Changer!"
  • Get a Hold of Yourself, Man!: Slapped Jason in an attempt to snap him out of his Heroic BSoD. However, with him turning physical, it only served to make it worse.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: As in the original series, he's very abrasive and serious, but sometimes he does it out of tough love, and really did not want his fellow Jetmen to get caught up in the spell. He even attempts to bring Jason out of his funk. It doesn't work, but still a nice try.
  • Put on a Bus: Stays in his homeworld in the hopes of reverting it back to normal after the Jetman arc.
  • Transformation Trinket: The Cross Changer.

Mack Hartford / Red Overdrive Ranger

  • Berserk Button: Taunting him over harming his friends and family. War smashes it hard when he tells the team about how the Operation Overdrive Rangers went into suicide missions, only to revive them and do it all over again, along with how Spencer and Andrew Hartford were erased from existence.
  • Break the Cutie: There's no denying that he has it rough before joining up with the All-Stars. He had to witness his fellow Overdrive Rangers getting caught by War and sending them to suicide missions, resurrecting them, and repeating that vicious cycle. Then Spencer and his father were erased from existence. All of this became upsetting to the Ranger, to the point where he was brought into tears while trying to tell his story.
  • By the Power of Grayskull!: "Overdrive, Accelerate!"
  • Hidden Depths: Surprisingly knows a bit about Pokemon, as he told Shelby what a Scizor was.
  • Transformation Trinket: The Overdrive Tracker.
  • Weapon of Choice
    • Blade on a Stick: The Drive Lance, which he briefly handed to Tim before his fight with War.

Michael Grayson / Red Lightspeed Ranger II (Alternate) / Nightmare Michael Grayson

"What was your first fucking clue?!"

The son of Catherine Grayson and another one of the few blogger-made creations. Michael first appeared briefly after reuniting with his friends, only getting a bit more focus in the Operation Overdrive mission. Like Orion, he was captured by War, only to be freed by Tim, but not without getting transformed into a Scizor in the process.

Michael returned in Super Sentai vs. Power Rangers III, this time having a bit of a larger role. During a night out with his friends, Neo-Vypra seduced him in the hopes of stealing his life force. Despite his objections, he nearly would have succumbed to her demands if Tim and Orion didn't save him in time. Later, he was nearly defeated by the Nightmare Animatronics until his own mother, Catherine, saved him. After a harrowing adventure in Nightmare's Dream World, he is grounded out of his own safety.

In Chapter 11, after Neo-Kiros, the sole survivor of the group of villains, attempts to target Sean into becoming evil, Michael takes the spell for him. He is turned into his Nightmare form, and later on in Chapter 12, Megazord Gear REX. After putting up a very good fight, he and Neo-Kiros were defeated by Rika's Thousand Arrows attack.

  • All There in the Manual: Similar to Tim, Michael's bio and his tropes are listed in We Are Our Avatars.
  • Ascended Extra: In Super Sentai vs. Power Rangers II, his only contributions are shooting enemies, getting kidnapped, and rescued after getting turned into a Scizor. Super Sentai vs. Power Rangers III has him play a larger part, especially in the first few chapters and Chapters 11-12.
  • By the Power of Grayskull!: "Lightspeed! Rescue!"
  • The Comically Serious: Nearly often, especially in the Operation Overdrive mission. The serious-minded Ranger gains a gun that would give him cravings for Mountain Dew and Doritos, until he switches to a golden gun, and at the end of the mission, Swagnemite turns him into a Scizor.
  • Cyber Ninja
  • Final Boss: As Nightmare Michael Grayson/Megazord Gear REX, shared with Neo-Kiros, his master.
  • Forced into Evil: Neo-Kiros placed a spell on him to become evil and to be turned into the final monster of the chapter, Nightmare Michael Grayson, a fusion of the cyborg ninja and Nightmare himself.
  • Guttural Growler: Compared to Sean and Conquest, both being badass baritones, Michael's voice is just as deep, but extremely harsh due to his vocal chords getting replaced by cybernetics.
  • Hell Is That Noise: Shares the same distorted, demonic wailing as Nightmare himself whenever he roars.
  • Identical Son: Barring his cybernetic body and silver hair, he looks exactly like Catherine back when she was Carter Grayson.
  • Legacy Character: The Red Lightspeed Ranger. The powers were passed down to Michael after Catherine's temporary death, then it was passed to his sister, Victoria. After the events of the Cyborg Davis liveblog, Michael has since regained his powers.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Is very fast with his attacks and agility, and with several of his attacks such as the Freeze Bolt Slash attack, they can hit very hard for great amounts of damage. This doesn't get erased one bit when he becomes Nightmare Michael Grayson, where he becomes even more brutal with his attacks due to his bloodlust, and he's a lot faster to boot. Which, considering that one has to be very fast to avoid Nightmare in his original source, makes sense.
  • Paint It Black: As Nightmare Michael Grayson, his armor is colored from mainly red to completely pitch-black, the same color used for Nightmare's actual body; and just like the animatronic, his body shows deteriorations, sports red eyes, grows sharp Wolverine Claws and sharper, numerous teeth, and even gains a belly mouth just for show.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner: Says this to the BBs in Chapter 2, before defeating them with a makeshift grenade, coupled as a shout-out to Five Nights at Fuckboy's.
    Michael: "Inhale my nonexistent dong, enragement children!"
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: In comparison to Tim and Orion, Michael has the foulest of mouths, almost dropping a swear word in a sentence.
  • Transformation Trinket: The Rescue Morpher.
  • Walking Spoiler: By Chapter 11, he becomes this. Taking a spell meant for one of the strongest Tokusatsu Spirits, turning you evil and fusing you with the very first Monster of the Chapter, serving as a final Monster of the Chapter and Final Boss alongside your own master, and indirectly killing the main heroine, even if she ends up becoming a Lich to save her life and making her undead, will do that to you.
  • Weapon of Choice
  • You Are Grounded: Catherine grounds Michael by not letting him go out; if he absolutely has to, a few bodyguards and the All-Stars would keep a close eye on him. There's a reason for the punishment, it's in order to keep him safe from the villains. This lasts until Chapter 8, where she lifts the grounding after finding out who attempted to seduce her son.

Ethan James / Blue Dino Thunder Ranger

Nanami Nono / Hurricane Blue

Ayumi Kinoshita / Deka Yellow (Alternate)

  • Ascended Extra: The only time where she had a larger role was during II's Dekaranger arc, where she assisted her team in an attempt to restore the Dekaranger worlds. IV gives her a larger role, taking Mao's place as one of the Legendary Rangers.

Jasmine / Deka Yellow

Shelby Watkins / Dino Charge Pink
