The Ohrangers (オーレンジャー Ōrenjā?) are the group of five soldiers from the International Defense Force transferred to the U.A.O.H. to battle the Machine Empire Baranoia. They were originally normal humans until their body chemistry was slightly altered to utilize Chōriki (超力 Chōriki?, Super Power), a form of energy used by an ancient civilization dating back to the time when all the continents were Pangaea. Their special team attack is Chōriki Dynamite Attack (超力ダイナマイトアタック Chōriki Dainamaito Atakku?), where the Ohrangers perform multiple mid-air flips and change into an energy ball that destroys Machine Beasts. Their surname bears the number of corners (or in Momo and Juri's case, a circle which has no corners and a = which is just two lines) of their visor's shape, except for Goro's whose surname reflects the shape of his visor (which is a star).

He is a cool-headed and quick-thinking person, though his stubbornness brings him and his teammates much trouble at times. He is an expert in karate, kendo, and judo. The others call him "captain."

U.A.O.H. First Lieutenant Yuji Mita (三田 祐司 Mita Yūji?) is 21 years old who fights as Oh Blue (オーブルー Ō Burū?). A swift person, Yuji is an expert in fencing and gymnastics. His recklessness makes him the most childish member along with his way of speaking. Yuji uses jumps and midair fighting tactics.
As Oh Blue, he can attack with Crashing Rolling Bomber (激突ローリングボンバー Gekitotsu Rōringu Bonbā?).
U.A.O.H. First Lieutenant Juri Nijyo (二条 樹里 Nijō Juri?) is 22 years old who fights as Oh Yellow (オーイエロー Ō Ierō?). Juri uses martial arts researched in the United States but she also likes dancing and aerobics, which uses in battle with great results. She loves fashion.

While separated from the others during the Bara Magma incident and losing her Power Brace, Momo is befriended by a German Shepherd named Johnny, referred by the locals as a divine savior, who brought her to safety. With the help of Shota, Momo finds Johnny with her Power Brace. She took Johnny's death hard as she avenges his death, only to find that he was still alive.

After chasing Bacchushund from Earth 600 million years ago, Riki entered suspended animation within King Pyramidder until it returns to Earth. He then runs off to find Bachhushund, meeting up with the Ohrangers and helping them out since.
Other U.A.O.H. Members
Chief Councilor Naoyuki Miura (三浦 尚之 Miura Naoyuki?) is the Ohrangers' commander, a dedicated leader who refuses to give up no matter what. An anthropologist and scientist as well, he learned of the ancient Pangaean civilization in 1996 and reversed engineered Chōriki to create the Ohrangers' arsenal and mecha when they are needed. He once defeated a Baranoia Soldier with his bare hands after a UAOH soldier couldn't do it with a gun.
Kirino Shunpei was a U.A.O.H. Lieutenant who died trying to control the Red Puncher.
Kirino was played by Ryohei Kobayashi.
Dorin (ドリン Dorin?, 26-31, 36, 42, 46-48) is a girl of Pangaea who was found sleeping inside King Pyramider. It's discovered that she is an important part of the Super Force in Earth and Riki is assignated to her care. Was killed by Multiwa but revived in the finale. She has a green pet lizard named Paku (パク Paku?).
Gunmazin (ガンマジン Ganmajin?, 37, 38, 40, 41, 44, 48 & Ohranger vs. Kakuranger) is an ancient warrior known for his honor and courage. Imprisoned within the form of a tiny tiki, the only way to unlock his power is by placing a key into his forehead and reciting the magic words "Gunma Gunma Dondoko Gunma" (ガンマガンマ ドンドコガンマ Ganma Ganma Dondoko Ganma?). For some reason, the key always ended up in the hands of a child and everyone knew the magic words after hearing them. When awakened, Gunmazin would grant a single wish to his discoverer as long as it didn't mean harm to anyone. There were times in which he simply didn't like the wish and refused to grant it or punished his awakener for lying to him. Gunmazin possessed the Mazin Saber (マジンサーベル Majin Sāberu?) through which he focused his power into the Majin One Sword Style (マジン一刀流 Majin Ittō Ryū?) of Majin One Sword Fencing (Fire, Lightning, Wind and Blinding Light). His back can act as a shield to defend himself and others (even King Pyrammider's beam). In the series finale, he took Acha, Kocha, and Buldont, Jr. to his care. In Ohranger vs. Kakuranger, he is revealed to be terrified of Youkai (monsters fought by the Kakurangers).
