Time Force Power Rangers
The Time Force Rangers are fictional characters and heroes in the Power Rangers universe, appearing in the television series Power Rangers Time Force. They are members of the Time Force organisation, law-enforcement officers sent from the future to prevent changes in the past.
Wesley "Wes" Collins
Wesley Collins is the Red Time Force Ranger and second-in-command of the team.
Though technically Jen is the leader of the team, as Red Ranger, Wes is considered an informal field leader, ever since regaining the Red Chrono Morpher from Alex. A similar situation was used in the earlier series Mighty Morphin Alien Rangers in which the character Delphine, the White Ranger, is the leader, but stories revolved around the Blue Ranger, Cestro.
According to Alex, Wes' father is supposed to die of his injuries inflicted by Ransik and Wes is to take over the company which he does do for a time. Wes proves capable of being in charge of the company, but decides to return to the Rangers, saving them from Frax and reacquiring his Morpher from Alex who, despite telling Wes of his father's fate himself, saves Mr. Collins with future technology. Wes finally reconciles with his father who supports him being the Red Ranger. Wes also falls in love with Jen but is hesitant to reveal his affection for fear that Jen does not reciprocate his affection. The return of Alex only further agitates Wes into believing this concept. In the finale, Wes forces the other Rangers to return to the future as Alex reveals they will die as they fight against Ransik, Frax, Doomtron, and the Cyclobot army even with Eric's help. After Alex reveals that Wes does save the city but dies doing it, the other Rangers return to help him and together they defeat the Cyclobot army. Wes destroys Doomtron and consequently Frax with the Q-Rex (which he has control of as Eric gave him the Quantum Morpher) and is the only one that lands a real hit on Ransik using his Red Battle Fire Armor. Ultimately Ransik surrenders and the other Rangers have to return to the future. Wes sadly says goodbye to the other Rangers and he and Jen profess their love, but Jen has no choice but to return to the future. Wes retains his Red Ranger powers and is offered command of the Silver Guardians (now protecting the city for free) which he accepts on the condition that the recovered Eric is his partner.
In Power Rangers Wild Force, Wes and Eric, now best friends, team up with the Wild Force Rangers to defeat the Mut-Orgs. Wes is reunited with the rest of the team and the repentant Nadira and Ransik and is angry with Jen who has been in the past for a while and never contacted him. The two reunite and still clearly love each other though it is left unrevealed if Jen remains in the past with him or returns to the future. Wes helps destroy the Mut-Orgs after Ransik destroys their mutant sides and celebrates the victory with the rest of the Time Force and Wild Force Ranger teams as well Nadira and the now fully human Ransik. During Forever Red, Wes teams up against the remnants of the Machine Empire with the other Red Rangers (and Eric) and helps defeat them. He would return again later to join the veteran Ranger army in Power Rangers Super Megaforce.
Wes is played by Jason Faunt.
Jennifer "Jen" Scotts
Jen Scotts is the Pink Time Force Ranger and the leader of the team. After the capture of the villain Ransik, Jen's boyfriend, Alex, proposes to her only to be killed the next day. Jen vows to avenge Alex and capture Ransik, who escapes. Just like Wes, Jen is a very skilled hand-to-hand fighter, even without her Ranger power. She takes the Pink, Blue, Green and Yellow Chrono Morphers and goes back in time to 2001. Jen is a strict leader in front of the Rangers and the newcomer Rangers getting to know them better, her attitude changes. She eventually ends her engagement with Alex when it is revealed that he is still alive, as she has fallen in love with Wes.
When Jen and the other Time Force Rangers reunite to help Wild Force Rangers battle the Mut-Orgs, she is paired up with White Tiger Ranger Alyssa Enrilè, who has pink essence on her clothes. Jen traveled back in time before her other teammates from the year 3000 to track the Mut-Orgs, and later saved Wes, Eric, and the Wild Force Rangers from the trio of villains. She would then find herself in the unlikely position of accepting Ransik and Nadira's help against the creatures, but decided to give her old foes a second chance. She and her teammates later return as part of the veteran Ranger army to battle the Armada.
Jen is played by Erin Cahill.
Trip is the Green Time Force Ranger and a native of the planet Xybria (which makes him the third non-human main core Ranger). Thanks to a green gem embedded in his forehead, he has the ability to read minds, pinpoint locations, and see the future in some instances. Green-haired, Trip is the naive member of the team, since his society is one without secrets. As such, he is sometimes gullible, leading to negative consequences. When blending in while in Wes' time period, Trip wears a hat to hide his Xybrian features.
Trip looks up to the other Rangers, but is a good Ranger in his own right. He is also a technological genius, having created the Electro Booster weapon and other arsenal. He can be considered the brains of the team. He is also rumored to have created the robotic owl Circuit, but this has never been confirmed. Trip is also willing to stand up for what he believes is right, such as when he tried to protect a mutant named Notacon (who did not want to be evil) from being destroyed by Eric Myers just because Notacon was a mutant. Trip even put himself on the line to protect the poor mutant, and Eric deliberately missed the pair, sparing them.
Trip was in part responsible for Nadira's reform. He forced her to help a woman in labor and the sight of the newborn made Nadira rethink her ways. Trip was sent back to the future by Wes, but accompanied the others back to the present to help him fight. He later returned with the other Time Force Rangers to battle the Mut-Orgs alongside the Wild Force Power Rangers. He also joined the team in helping the Megaforce Rangers in their final battle with the Armada.
Trip is played by Kevin Kleinberg.
Katie Walker is the Yellow Time Force Ranger. Gifted with unnatural strength that might be the product of genetic engineering, Katie is always open with her feelings, a sharp contrast to the conservative Jen. After returning to the future, she comes back one more time to help fight the Mut-Orgs. Katie partnered with her fellow Yellow Rangers, Kelsey Winslow from Lightspeed Rescue and Taylor Earnhardt in Wild Force. She would also appear as part of the Ranger army in Super Megaforce.
Most times, Katie can be seen hugging her fellow Ranger really tightly, which is a habit of hers.
Katie is played by Deborah Estelle Philips.
Lucas Kendall is the Blue Time Force Ranger and is vainly obsessed with two things: looks and cars. In the year 3000, he is a race car driver, and acts as a big brother figure to Trip. Lucas is also "cool", the sort of guy whom everyone seems jealous of (especially Trip), and seems to be a big hit with the ladies. After the Time Force Rangers return to the future, they later come back to assist the Wild Force Rangers in battling the Mut-Orgs. Lucas goes back to the future, revealing a possible romance between him and Nadira who had liked him at least as far back as Nadira's Dream Date. He also apparently set her up so she didn't have to go to prison by presumably getting her community service or something similar. When neither Jen nor Wes are around to lead the team he usually leads the rest. He would later return as part of the Ranger army in Super Megaforce.
Lucas is played by Michael Copon.
Eric Myers is the Quantum Ranger, the sixth Ranger of the Time Force Power Rangers.
Eric is first seen as a soldier working for the Silver Guardians, an organization established by Mr. Collins to protect Bio-Lab. Wes later reveals that they attended the same private school. Whereas Wes came from a rich family, Eric worked hard and was dirt poor, and eventually decided to leave the school, saying he had "bigger plans". Eric was resentful for having to work so hard while Wes did not have to work at all. From this, Eric grew bitter and had few friends, although Wes did try to befriend him on several occasions.
After discovering that Wes is the Red Time Force Ranger, Eric attempts to find his own powers. He becomes aware that the Time Force Power Rangers are looking for the Quantum Ranger power, and he gets to it first and morphs. He refuses to hand the powers over to the rangers. The Rangers didn't trust him. Wes tries to get the Quantum Ranger power and Wes and Eric fight each other. Eric defeated Wes and Time Force Rangers were unable to get it back. The rangers have no choice but leave him alone and accept him. Wes later accompanies him in a journey back in time to find the Quantum Ranger's Megazord, the Q-Rex. Time Force HQ, aids Eric, by giving him new powers. After the previous leader of the Silver Guardians was injured in action, Eric was able to eventually gain control of the Q-Rex enough for Mr. Collins to promote him to being the leader of the Silver Guardians, much to the Rangers (mostly Wes's)' dismay.
Eric becomes a reluctant ally to the regular Rangers, remaining separate and occasionally aiding them at certain times. His peers often find his methods intimidating, but deep down they know he is almost always taking the best approach. Unlike Wes, Eric works alone and doesn't let someone like Jen push him around. Eric acts more like lone wolf leader. As time goes by, the Rangers learned to trust Eric. He is later known for commanding fanatic loyalty from his comrades and is known for pulling his team together when beginning a new mission.
During the end of the series, Eric is severely injured by a laser shot from a Cyclobot after taking a shot meant for Wes and Mr. Collins and he hands his Morpher over to Wes. He recovers though, and becomes co-leader of the Silver Guardians with Wes who was offered command, but accepted only under the condition that Eric was his partner. The two from then on led the Silver Guardians (now working for free) in protecting the city from threats.
Eric later makes a few other appearances. Now best friends with Wes, he teams up with the other Time Force Rangers in the team-up battle with the Wild Force Power Rangers, who are trying to stop a trio of Mutant-Org hybrids. During this time, he develops a love/hate relationship with Taylor Earhardt (the Yellow Wild Force Ranger) after he had previously gave her a speeding ticket. He is also one of ten Red Rangers to battle in the episode Forever Red, which celebrated the tenth anniversary of the Power Rangers franchise.
His zord (the Q-Rex) was later reclaimed by Time Force, and reconstructed for the use of the Super Megaforce Silver Ranger. Eric himself would later join the Ranger army in the final battle with the Armada.
Eric is played by Daniel Southworth.
Alex is the former Red Time Force Ranger, and Jen's former fiancee. He is the descendant of Wesley Collins who is known for doing everything by the book and is obsessed with his job. He is supposedly killed by Ransik in the first episode yet barely survives. After his recovery, Alex may have been promoted to high-ranking position as he is referred to as "sir" by his former commanding officer.
On occasion, he has secretly helped the Rangers from a small dark room in Time Force HQ. He sends the Time Shadow from this command system and keeps a close eye on the "past." He may have also been behind Eric's Mega Battle mode.
When he officially resurfaces, he intends to restore the future to the way it is after the events that occur have shifted the timeline. The other Rangers ask him to give the Powers back to Wes, who can inspire the team as Alex can not during the battle with Dragontron who he can not defeat. After Wes saves them from Frax and destroys the energy siphon Alex is trying to take out, he reluctantly hands his Morpher over to Wes. Unlike Alex, Wes is easily able to defeat Dragontron using an unorthodox method. Afterwards, he realizes that Wes was right about the future, that it could be changed and doing the right thing, he saves Wes' father's life when Alex has earlier revealed that he is fated to die. When Jen is in trouble, Circuit contacts Alex and he sent Wes the Strata Cycle, telling him that Wes needs to protect Jen for him since he is not there, showing that despite the cold way he has treated Jen when he comes to the past, Alex still loves her.
When the Rangers are forced to return to the future by Wes after learning they would die in battle, Alex reveals to them that Wes will die in the battle to defeat Ransik and takes them to have their memories of the past erased. Ultimately the Rangers decide to go back and help Wes though Alex is against it. Alex is hurt when he realizes Jen has come to love Wes, as she returns the engagement ring. Unable to stop her, Alex tells the Rangers to use the Time Force Megazord in Jet Mode to reach the past instead of the Time Ship as the Megazord has the best chance of making it through the vortex when things are so unstable in the past.
Alex is played by Jason Faunt.
Alice is a young girl who is one of Eric's neighbors. Alice first appears in "Quantum Secrets." She came over to Eric when she saw him outside feeding his two birds in a cage and asked Eric if she could see the birds. Startled, Eric told her she could. Alice was pleased and told Eric that everyone should have a friend. Alice and Eric's conversation was interrupted by the arrival of three men. The leader told Eric that he had to come with them. Later, Conwing was attacking Silver Hills. Alice raced over into Eric's backyard and rescued his birds. The following day, Alice returned to Eric's backyard as she had spotted Eric sitting dejectedly. Alice revealed that she had the birds and proudly told him that she had rescue them. Eric was relieved to see his birds and told Alice that she was very brave. Eric helped Alice up to get a closer looker at the birds. Eric told Alice that she could come and visit the birds any time she wanted to which she was very happy about.
Alice makes one more appearance in "Destiny Defeated." She ran up the sidewalk when she noticed Eric standing with his bird cage and luggage. She went up to the bird cage and started to play with the birds. Alice asked Eric if he was leaving, which he was. Eric told her that he was giving the birds to her and she cheered up. Alice stood up and gave Eric a hug, telling him that she was going to miss him. Eric was rather startled at first by the sincerity of affection, but then he returned the hug. A taxi pulled up and Eric tossed his luggage inside. Eric patted Alice on the head and then entered the taxi. The taxi drove off and Alice waved to Eric and he returned the wave until they were out of sight.
Alice is played by Darcy O'Donnell.
Circuit is a small robotic owl who serves as the Rangers' technical adviser, much in the vein of Alpha 5. He informs them of the weapons at their disposal, performs diagnostics on their equipment, and sends word to the future to send the Time Force Megazord whenever a mutant grows. When he is not performing Intel for the Rangers, he frequently resides in Trip's backpack. Circuit once tried to access information on the immediate future for the rangers, who were curious about future fights with Ransik, but a still secretive Alex saw this attempt and immediately made the information unavailable to prevent any changes to the timeline. Circuit believed he had become faulty and useless to the rangers, temporarily leaving them until being convinced that it wasn't his fault.
Circuit is voiced by Brianne Siddall.
Mr. Albert Collins is Wes's wealthy father, owner of Bio Lab, and founder of the Silver Guardians. Wes left his father to make a name for himself, but Mr. Collins saw him as a failure. He then focused his efforts on advancing Bio Lab technology by examining the Quantum powers, and creating Trizyrium Crystals. In effort to protect Silver Hills from Ransik's forces, Mr. Collins created the Silver Guardians.
When Mr. Collins discovered that his son was the Red Ranger, things changed. He became proud of his son for breaking away from him and making his own future. Mr. Collins even stood up to Ransik, who attacked Bio Lab for the antidote to Venomark's bite. He tells Ransik that he'd have flushed the serum down the toilet if he knew it was keeping the mutant alive. When Ransik taunts him about his own rejection in Wes not following his footsteps, Mr. Collins tells him off he is proud of Wes regardless and loves him. He is seriously injured by an energy blast from Ransik and taken to the hospital. When Alex shows up from the future, he reveals Mr. Collins will die the next day and that Wes' destiny is to take over Bio-Lab from him. Wes does take control of Bio Lab at the insistence of Doctor Zaskin, but isn't happy there and returns to the Rangers after learning from Doctor Zaskin that his father was proud of him for being a Ranger. While Wes leads the Rangers in destroying Dragontron, Mr. Collins nearly dies as predicted, but is saved by Alex with future technology as Wes made Alex see the future isn't set in stone. Wes and Mr. Collins made up afterwards with Mr. Collins encouraging Wes to return to the Rangers and admitting he was proud of him. He was also proud of Wes for taking his place as head of his company while he was absent, but accepts it isn't Wes' role (even telling him as much).
Due to the interference in the present caused by Ransik and Time Force, Bio Lab created the Trizyrium crystals 100 years too early; the possibility of clean, infinite energy is enticing. However, Mr. Collins decides against continuing Tryzyrium crystal research after Wes explains the other Rangers' origins and the damage to the timeline the crystals could do. During the final battle with Ransik, Mr. Collins risks his life to search the city for his son, having his butler Philips transport an injured child and his mother to the hospital. He is eventually reunited with Wes and Eric and witnesses Eric being wounded. When Wes heads off to fight on his own, Mr. Collins stays with Eric to take him to the hospital. After the Rangers return to the future, Mr. Collins offers Wes command of the Silver Guardians, which he changes to protecting the city for free rather than profit. Wes agrees on the condition that Eric is his partner, which Mr. Collins is happy with.
Mr. Collins is played by Edward Laurence Albert.
Captain Logan is the head of Time Force, the Rangers' superior officer. After Ransik's escape, he relieved them of their duties. Despite that, he does provide help to the Rangers when they are sent back in time, supplying Zords and weapons.
For reasons unknown when Alex was revealed as the man in the shadows, Captain Logan refers to him as "sir" (even though Alex is clearly a subordinate in the beginning) when he informs him that Steelix has been contained. It's possible Alex's near-death experience in trying to stop Ransik got him promoted. After Alex revealed himself to the Rangers, he took Captain Logan's place as the Rangers' contact in the future.
Logan is played by Roy Werner.
Philips is played by Douglas Fisher.
Dr. Michael Zaskin is a scientist who works for Collins at Bio Lab. He was once captured by Klawlox and Nadira in an attempt to learn all about the secrets of the Quantum Ranger powers. When Ransik assaulted Bio-Lab to obtain the serum for treating Venommark's poison, he witnesses Mr. Collins confronting him about Wes's destiny. He tells Wes about what he witnessed.
Dr. Zaskin is played by Ken Merckx.
The Silver Guardians are a private security force funded by Wes's father, and later led by Eric (after being the Time Force sixth ranger) that protected Silver Hills from Ransik's mutants, but for profit; because of such, only the wealthy could afford to be protected by the Silver Guardians. They hold a tenuous relationship with the Time Force Rangers, often running into each other when a mutant attacks.
At the end of the series, Wes becomes co-leader of the Silver Guardians with Eric. At this time the Guardians are changed so they protect the city for free. In Wild Force the Silver Guardians appear to be more of a Police Force than a Private Security Force.
The antagonists of the Power Rangers are mutant criminals that had traveled back in time with the criminal Ransik. He and the other mutants are shown to be byproducts of the future's genetic experiments, and were shunned by much of society. In the finale, certain characters were redeemed by the Time Force Power Rangers and willingly gave themselves up for judgment, returning in the following series to aid the Rangers in the crossover with Power Rangers Wild Force.
Ransik is a mutant mastermind created by accident in 3000 and the main antagonist in Power Rangers Time Force. He had possessed abilities such as energy projection, martial arts, and telekinesis. After being bitten by the mutant Venomark, he became dependent on a serum developed by Dr. Louis Ferricks; however, due to his unique DNA, Ransik would need to keep drinking the serum until the symptoms stopped recurring. He rewarded the scientist by setting his lab on fire and leaving him for dead; by the end of the series, Ransik no longer needs the serum. He also encountered the last surviving Orgs, who had been turned to stone. In exchange for letting them copy his mutant DNA to escape, Ransik gained greater power (such as the ability to pull weapons - swords, mostly - from his skin).
Ransik's plans involve commandeering the Time Force Cryo-Prison and traveling back in time to take over with an army of mutants that committed crimes in Millennium City. He is thwarted in his first attempt by Alex, the original Red Time Force Ranger, whom narrowly manages to arrest him. However, en route to the prison, Ransik is rescued by his daughter Nadira and his robotic minion Frax. They escape and accomplish Ransik's goals, and also puts Alex out of action for a long amount of time. Alex was, in fact, thought dead – motivating Jen, the Pink Time Force Ranger, to seek justice and revenge.
In 2001, Ransik soon finds himself menaced by Alex's teammates and new Red Time Force Ranger Wes Collins (who he initially mistook for Alex, due to Wes being his ancestor) upon landing in the city of Silver Hills. He uses various schemes and mutants to attack the Rangers, but never succeeds; unlike his predecessors, Ransik's schemes are cold and logical. During an early encounter with Wes, Ransik claims that he was a misunderstood outcast in the future utopia and that all mutants were oppressed. Jen disputes this – saying that Ransik rejected any offers of help from normal humans. Wes remains unsure regardless.
Ransik temporarily takes control of the Quantasaurus Rex, but it's reclaimed by the Quantum Ranger. Shortly afterward, Frax betrays Ransik and destroys all his serum. He reveals, before escaping that he was the robotically-modified version Dr. Fericks (who swore revenge on Ransik for the destruction of his lab and his current appearance). Unfortunately for Frax's plan, the Bio-Lab company has begun producing the serum they replicated from a sample Wes had found after Venomark's defeat. Ransik breaks in and steals a vile of the serum. While drinking it, he is caught by Wes' father, Mr. Collins, who admits that if he had known the true nature of the serum, he would've flushed it down the toilet. Ransik fires an energy blast that puts him in a coma and escapes.
Ransik eventually runs out of mutants to unfreeze, but captures and reprograms Frax. He unleashes a mass assault on the city with the Doomtron, and destroys the Rangers' clock tower base. However, the Doomtron's destroyed by the Rangers' Zords. The Rangers then attempt to arrest Ransik, but he overpowers them. While facing Jen, he accidentally injures Nadira, who has changed her attitude towards humans. After talking with her briefly, and realizing how close he had come to losing what he most cared about, Ransik willingly turns himself in. He is the second villain of the Power Rangers series to not be destroyed in the end.
During Power Rangers Wild Force, Ransik comes back to the present with the Time Force Power Rangers to help stop the Mut-Orgs, the three Orgs he found in the future. Jen showed hostility when she saw Ransik again, but Cole is the only one who convinced her to give him a chance. Ransik, having already seen the error of his ways, shows a clear amount of guilt for the Mut-Orgs' existence. He aids the combined Time Force/Wild Force Ranger teams, and during the battle he launched a near-suicidal attack on the Mut-Orgs and destroys their mutant half, but nearly dies in the process. He is later shown to be alive and his mutant side is purged making him completely human. Thus, Ransik is one of the few Power Ranger villains to truly find redemption.
Ransik is played by Vernon Wells.
Nadira is the mutant daughter of the criminal Ransik, who traveled back in time with her father to 2001. She is a rather obnoxious humanoid, who loves being told how much she is beautiful. She is similar to Trakeena from Power Rangers Lost Galaxy but is much less malevolent. Nadira would much rather run than fight, but when necessary she was a formidable opponent who possessed the ability to extend her fingernails to use as weapons. She also displayed superhuman strength, the ability to alter clothing, and to teleport. Nadira adores the 21st century fashion, frequently stealing clothing and jewelry.
Nadira engineered Ransik's escape from custody, lying down on the ground and pretending to be injured. She aided her father's raid on the Cryo Prison and prevented the mutant criminal Gluto from being cryogenically frozen. Along with Ransik, Frax and Gluto, she traveled back in time to 2001.
Nadira believed that the key to controlling the world in this time period was to have lots of money, and she frequently tries to accumulate more through extortion or theft. One of her schemes lead to Wes leaving his father, due to the lack of concern for a bus full of children held hostage; her plan was to hold someone of importance hostage for ransom, but the mutant she charged with the task bumbled. However, she is always defeated by the Time Force Power Rangers. A running gag on the show was that Gluto had a crush on her and would try in vain to woo her, but would always be rejected.
In the last episodes of the series, as Gluto and the Cyclobots hunt down Frax, Nadira diverts herself by taking over a clothing store. Trip shows up alone to stop her, and the Xybrian takes on the mutant. But when a pregnant woman goes into childbirth labor, the two stop and try to help her. Trip forces Nadira to help the woman deliver her baby. Nadira emerges from the dressing room with the newborn, who she calls beautiful. Trip tells her that humans can't be all that bad, and Nadira agrees with him. After playing with human children, Nadira questions her supposed hatred for them. Nadira goes to an imprisoned Frax for answers. He tells her that hate is a vicious cycle propagated by humans and mutants. As Frax is taken away in chains, she apologizes for the way Ransik has treated him. In the moment, he sees a spark of goodness in Nadira and urges her to break the cycle. As Nadira tries to make Ransik stop the hate, he scolds her for mourning over Frax, and knocks her down. When a baby was left behind during the attack, she decided to keep it safe and try to find its parents. While doing that, she is accidentally wounded by Ransik and asked him to do the right thing, revealing that mutants can forgive humans.
Within a year of her return to the future, Nadira is working with children. Apparently Lucas managed to set her up so that she either didn't have to go to prison, got community service, didn't have a long prison sentence, or was pardoned for her crimes. She accompanied Ransik and the other Time Force Rangers in the Power Rangers: Wild Force team-up episode to help them fight the Mut-Orgs. Apparently she likes Lucas as in one episode she goes out on a date with him after thinking he wrote poetry about her (it was about his race car) but in Reinforcements From the Future at the end he walks off with her holding hands indicating that he may possibly return her feelings.
Nadira is played by Kate Sheldon.
Frax is a robot in the service of Ransik, responsible for constructing the army of robot minions that Ransik sends against the Time Force Power Rangers. A robot himself, he dislikes Ransik's belief that robots are inferior, as well as the mutant's habits of destroying his creations when he is angry. This rage goes unnoticed by Ransik for much of the series until Frax's Fury, when Frax finally takes his anger out on him. Frax's arsenal consists of a claw arm that transforms into a hand-like missile launcher.
It is later revealed that Frax is actually all that is left of Dr. Louis Fericks (portrayed by Jeff Griggs), the scientist from the future who attempted to heal Ransik of his poisoning by Venomark, a mutant criminal who is later captured and placed in the X-Vault. He also provides the serum that Ransik must consume regularly to combat the poison. Ransik destroys his lab, steals the serum supplies, and leaves him for dead in return. Dr. Fericks only survives by rebuilding himself into a robot, and becomes resentful towards Ransik for his actions.
Later in the series, Frax ends up discovering the key to the X-Vault (where the worst prisoners are contained) after being admonished for sending his robotic creation Tronicon to destroy the Ranger. He releases many of them without Ransik's approval, including Venomark (an action that particularly angers Ransik due to their past history). As a form of revenge, he destroys all of his serum, reveals his true identity to Ransik, and runs away from Ransik and the Cyclobots on Ransik's side. However, Wes found the sample of the serum that that Ransik left behind and Bio Lab began producing the serum to treat the citizens infected by Venomark. Despite this, he begins constructing massive robots that run on powerful Trizirium crystals from Mr. Collins' lab.
In the series finale, Frax is captured by Ransik with the aid of Gluto (who finds Frax's hideout) while working on his giant robot Doomtron. Nadira, Ransik's daughter, comes to him after she begins to doubt her father's mission. Frax explains that the hatred and prejudice between humans and mutants is a vicious cycle and he urges her to break it before being taken away and having his memory erased. He is then reprogrammed to obey Ransik and to use his robot Doomtron to destroy his enemies. Wes is able to return and destroy Doomtron, causing Frax to shut down as a result.
Frax is voiced by Eddie Frierson.
Gluto is a minor, mafioso-themed, mutant criminal who joins the service of Ransik when he is saved from stasis by the arrival of the villain's forces. He appears to be a sort of frog or fish/whale-like mutant. He aids Ransik in the 21st century, serving as the dumb muscle of the mutant army. A running gag throughout the series is his crush on Ransik's daughter, Nadira, and his attempts to win her affection; he would always be promptly rejected. Gluto later finds the hideout of Frax and brings in Ransik to collect him. During the final assault on the city, Gluto decides to freeze himself inside the prison where he was unwilling to stick around for whatever might happen. It is unknown whether he was found by Time Force or remains in the past.
His name is most likely derived from glutton or gluttony, considering his obesity. Gluto had the ability to use his flatulence to propel himself into the air. Gluto is also known to be a coward at times.
In Timeranger, his counterpart is the main villain.
Gluto is voiced by Neil Kaplan.
An evil Black Knight who appeared in "Beware the Knight". The Black Knight is the only non-mutant the Rangers face, possibly being a ghost. He went after a legendary power source known as the Battle Fire, but was stopped by the knight it belonged to; he sought any brave warriors with pure hearts through the ages to in order to open the box housing the power. A dragon guards the box for him. The Knight appeared to have gotten desperate by the 21st century, since he targeted ANYONE claiming they would protect others (such as a couple on a date). Wes got to the power of the Battle Fire first, and received the Red Battle Warrior Armor, which he used to destroy the Black Knight. Trip encounters him when bringing pizza back for the rangers, having the pizza trampled by the knight's horse; the knight is later thought to have survived at the end of the episode when Trip returns with another ruined pizza, but he just dropped it.
The Black Knight is voiced by Dave Mallow.
Quarganon is a Super Demon who was imprisoned within an artifact known as the Solar Amulet. When Vypra comes back to life, she attempts to steal the Amulet. However, because she is a ghost, she cannot take it from inside its case (Vypra has energy projection abilities; it is not explained why she did not simply use those to break open the case). She forms an alliance with Ransik and succeeds in stealing it, then summons the powerful Super Demon during the sun's alignment with the stars through this incantation:
- From the deepest shadows far below,
- where no mortal will dare to go.
- Only Demons toss and burn.
- Now mighty Quarganon, it's your time to return!
However, the Lightspeed Power Rangers arrive to help the Time Force Rangers. Carter Grayson (the Red Lightspeed Ranger) destroys him with his Trans-Armor Cycle and Vypra by Wesley Collins (Red Time Force Ranger) with his Red Battle Warrior.
Quarganon is voiced by Ron Roggé.
NOTE: In Timeranger vs. GoGoV, Quarganon's Japanese equivalent is actually a fusion of Jinxer's Japanese equivalent and the criminal Boribaru (unused in this show).
The Cyclobots are Ransik's robotic foot soldiers were originally invented by Dr. Ferricks. He intended them as friends and aides, but Ransik stole the schematics when he betrayed the doctor. They are fairly strong and attack in massive hordes, but the Power Rangers have little trouble defeating them.
Cyclobots can be deployed from small golden bolts or disguise themselves as humans to ambush their foes. They usually wield short swords that double as energy blasters and it has parts that are similar to Darth Maul's Lightsaber, but have occasionally carried more powerful bazookas for widespread destruction.
These are mutant criminals that have been captured by Time Force and cryogenically frozen in the Cryo-Prison as shrunken figures after committing crimes in Millennium City. When Ransik hijacked it, he had an army of mutants at his disposal. Every Mutant has a DNA patch on their bodies that causes them to grow to a massive size if removed. They revert to their shrunken state when defeated in normal or giant forms, after which one of the Rangers places them in a studded container with a window on the front that displays the imprisoned mutant. The containers are stored in a fridge-like unit in the Rangers' base, ready for transport back to the future.

His head can levitate and produce numerous tentacles for combat, while his body has great strength and the ability to fire lasers from its claws. He was known for kidnapping the Mayor of Millennium City back in the year 3000. It's Tentaclaw's history that caused Nadira to revive him in another bid to get rich in the present by kidnapping the kids from the park and holding them for ransom. Frozen by the Vortex Blaster while his body is frozen by the Time Force Megazord Mode Blue.

Frozen by the Shadow Force Megazord Mode Red. He is the only mutant who willingly allows himself to be captured. His name is a pun of three words put together "not a con"; con is short for convict, an imprisoned person.

Like several other mutants, he can adopt a human form (also played by Riley Schmidt), although his odd taste in food can give him away.

- Steelix (voiced by J.W. Meyers) - Steelix was Jen's original partner in Time Force, but he was secretly a mole who was selling top-secret information to Ransik.

- Vexicon (voiced by Richard Epcar) - When Frax accidentally stumbled upon the key to the X-Vault, Vexicon was the first mutant he released from the infamous storage area.

- Univolt (voiced by Bob Papenbrook) - An electrical mutant that was imprisoned in the Cryo-Prison's X-Vault until it was released by Frax. He was also responsible for exposing Wes' identity, in front of His father and Eric. Frozen by the Vortex Blaster.
- Venomark (voiced by Kim Strauss) - A twisted mutant that was imprisoned in the Cryo-Prison's X-Vault until it was released by Frax. He has super speed and the ability to conjure a sword from thin air, but his main weapon is his bite, which inflicts a painful and lethal disease on anyone he can sink his fangs into.

Frozen by the Shadow Force Megazord Mode Red and Q-Rex Megazord Mode.
These robots are creations of Frax, mostly after his betrayal of Ransik. They are functionally similar to the regular mutant enemies (including the DNA patch that allows them to grow), but are completely silent and are actually destroyed in battle, rather than being imprisoned. They are usually powered by Trizirium Crystals.
- Tronicon (voiced by Kim Strauss, but was only credited) - Frax's first robot was designed to prove that robots are just as effective as mutants against the Power Rangers. Physically, Tronicon resembled a heavily armed Cyclobot with extra armor on its torso. It attacked with lasers from its cannon arm, rockets from a launcher above said cannon, and rebounding energy discs from its shoulders. Destroyed by the Time Shadow Megazord in its first battle.
- Dragontron - A giant dragon-like robot that was created by Frax following his breaking away from Ransik. It was extremely strong and durable, with impressive regeneration abilities to boot. Its only weakness was an exposed core on its back, but Frax could usually cover this weakness when directly overseeing his creation. Destroyed by the Time Force Megazord Mode Red.
- Max Axe - A robot created by Frax to wreak havoc on the city while he was completing his ultimate weapon. It was heavily armed, with large cannons on its shoulders, a gatling gun for a left hand, and an ax blade on its right hand. Destroyed by the Quantasuras Rex.
- Doomtron - The final robot created by Frax is this massive crab-clawed machine which seemingly bears its maker's image on its face. Unlike the previous robots, it required a pilot to function as Frax himself only pilots it after Ransik captures and reprograms him into a mindlessly loyal slave. Destroyed along with Frax with the Quantasuaras Rex, but under Wes' control rather than Eric's.
