The first instalment of the Power Rangers Redverse written by Mad Red X 12, using suit designs from Himitsu Sentai Goranger. An evil morphological being known as Ivan Ooze has emerged, conquering several galaxies by enslaving their entire populations. He has now set his sights upon the Virgo Supercluster. Searching for a way to protect the various galaxies from the evil tyrant and his brainwashed army, the Eltarian species discover ancient plans known as "Project Power Ranger". The lead scientist and wizard of Eltar, Barza, completes the designs and drafts his son and granddaughter, a mysterious space travelling being, and three people from planets in the Virgo Supercluster to form the very first team of Power Rangers in the universe. Aided by a team of Eltarian scientists, wizards and engineers and operating out of the underwater Eltar Aquabase that also deters the hydrophobic Ivan Ooze from directly attacking the base, the Rangers must bond as a team and stop Ivan Ooze before he can gain complete control of the universe.
The Rangers of Eltar:
- Zordon/Red Ranger: The Hero, son of Barza and only survivor of the Eltar Guard, which were all slaughtered by Ivan's first attack, which he only survived by Playing Possum. A Overprotective Dad who possesses a Chronic Hero Syndrome and a Complexity Addiction and frequently forgets that some situations are No Place for a Warrior.
- Ninjor/Blue Ranger: The Smart Guy, a robot ninja of unknown origin (not even he knows where he came from) travelling the universe in his temple before being called to help on Eltar. A hyperactive Large Ham who is Allergic to Routine and tends to be a Competition Freak.
- Dulcea/Yellow Ranger: The Big Girl, a master warrior from the jungle planet Phados. Ill-tempered, too prideful to accept sympathy, Cannot Convey Sarcasm, cannot spit out her feelings for Zordon and so acts rude towards him, and is a heroic Blood Knight note .
- Dimitria/Pink Ranger: The Chick, Zordon's half Eltarian half Hazardian daughter from a previous relationship who grows into a adult when morphing. The residential Dandere who Does Not Know How to Say "Thanks" and has a Fear of Thunder.
- Lerigot/Green Ranger: The Heart, a teenage Black Mage from the desert planet Yatherel. Skilled, but Naïve, Literal-Minded and a sufferer of a Inferiority Superiority Complex; a Running Gag is that his spells frequently tend to backfire in comical ways that typically get him hurt or embarassed.
- Zedd/Shadow Ranger: The Lancer, a primitive "human" from the barely acknowledged backwater planet Earth. Given how young his race is, he has little knowledge of the universe and spends most of his time just marvelling at everything.
Their Allies are:
And they're up against:
- Ivan Ooze:
- Oozemen: Ivan's sludge-based Mooks.
Recurring Power Rangers Redverse Tropes:

- Finishing Move: Three, in fact:
- Ranger Storm: The Rangers pull out a soccer ball and kick it between them, charging up energy within it, before Zordon kicks it at the enemy.
- Ranger Hurricane:
- Ranger Bomber:
- Five-Man Band: There are two Big Guys note and three Smart Guys note on the team.
- Home Base: The Eltar Aquabase, which was specifically chosen because both Ivan and Bansheera can't take water. The Rangers also have a secondary Elaborate Underground Base underneath the coffee shop Snack Gon. Later in the series the Eltar Battle Tank serves as a tertiary Homebase.
- Humongous Mecha:
- Combining Mecha:
- Zord Jet + Zord Rocket + Zord Tank + Zord Racer + Zord Beast = Eltar Megazord

- There Is No Kill Like Overkill
Tropes specific to Ancient Guardians:
- Butt-Monkey: Oh, Lerigot...
- Early Installment Weirdness:
- The series has a overall much lighter tone than the Darker and Edgier sequels, and is overall the closest in the Redverse in tone to a actual Power Rangers or Super Sentai series.
- The first season of the series didn't even have Zords - those weren't introduced until the second season, whereas in every other Redverse instalment, the Zords are always introduced within the first 6-12 episodes. The closest things to a Zord featured in the season are the Eltar Battle Tank and Eltar Battle Jet.
