Kousoku Sentai Turboranger (高速戦隊ターボレンジャー? Kōsoku Sentai Tāborenjā, [Note 1]) is the thirteenth entry of Toei Company's Super Sentai series. The first Super Sentai title of the Heisei period, it was aired on TV Asahi on February 25, 1989 to February 23, 1990 with a total of 51 episodes (1 TV special and 50 televised episodes). And it was the first series to air on Fridays instead of Saturdays. Its international title in English as listed by Toei is Turbo Rangers.
During its initial run, Turboranger was the 11th Super Sentai and billed as the 10th anniversary title of the Super Sentai series (as Battle Fever J was originally designated as the first Super Sentai series). However, in 1995, Himitsu Sentai Gorenger and J.A.K.Q. Dengekitai officially became the first two Super Sentai series; thus making Turboranger the 13th in the franchise.
Twenty thousand years ago, the Fairy race assisted humans in a battle against the Bōma Tribes and sealed them away. Due to modern day pollution and man's destruction of nature, the power of Fairy magic has weakened, allowing the seal to be broken and the Tribes escape. With the help of Dr. Dazai, Seelon, the last of the fairies, summoned five high school seniors. As children, they were showered with the "flames of spirit" of the fallen fairies in a forest, and can now hear Seelon's voice. Donning powered suits, the product of a collaboration between Seelon's magic and Dr. Dazai's science, the five become the Turborangers, juggling days of fighting with their regular school lives, in order to defeat the Bōma Tribes.
The five rangers are all high school students.
- Riki Honoo (炎 力? Honō Riki)/Red Turbo (レッドターボ? Reddo Tābo): A brave high school baseball team captain. An ace pitcher, his technique is the "Demonball of Fire/Honoo" and dreams of becoming a professional. Despite his apparent hyperactivity disorder, Riki has a high sense of justice and confidence. He is the kind of person who is not in good graces with his teacher due to his low grades which is seen earlier. He shows his unusual amount of power in matters like when he defeats Zimba on their final duel. He also kills Rehda in the middle of the battle with the Super Bōma Beast which he rushed into it out of impulsiveness. Riki was captured by Wandering Bōmas and forced to pit against Ragorn where after a hard battle, he underwent near death but he managed to win by inflicting a mortal wound on Ragorn's heart at a desperate attempt. He pulled the team together during the final battle. Riki would appear years later to grant the Greater Power of the TurboRangers to the Gokaigers during Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger, but the Greater Power would never be used onscreen.
- Daichi Yamagata (山形 大地? Yamagata Daichi)/Black Turbo (ブラックターボ? Burakku Tābo): A patient track star who is also a good student giving him the fame of "Running Brain" which is in contrast to Riki. He shows his team concern and is self-sacrificing even when he placed himself at risk to be able to have the Turbo Rugger completed. Daichi is a reliable sub-leader who will always be for support of his teammates. He once befriended the monster Sumo Bōma whom he defeated in a sumo battle and granted the demon rest. He defeated Jarmin in battle after helping Dr. Dazai get the parts to complete the Turbo Rugger.

- Shunsuke Hino (日野 俊介? Hino Shunsuke)/Yellow Turbo (イエローターボ? Ierō Tābo): He is a gymnast and almost behaves like a feral child. He was in love with a girl he only knew as "Sayo-chan" when younger, never realizing it was actually Sayoko Tsukikage/Kirika.

Tābo Ragā!) is given, the Rugger Fighter's cockpit forms Turbo Rugger's back, the underside becomes the arms, and the sides become the legs, with the afterburners as the feet, the rest forms the chest, revealing the head. Turbo Rugger's head and chest forms the Super Turbo Robo's own head (with a special helmet) and chest, the legs become the arms, and the feet as the Super Turbo Robo's own.

Super Turbo-Robot" (スーパーシフト！スーパーターボロボ? Sūpā Shifuto! Sūpā Tābo Robo) is given.

- Fairy Seelon (妖精シーロン? Yōsei Shīron): The last surviving Fairy with a height of 8 centimeters (approximately 3 1/4 inches) tall. She can only be seen with the naked eye by the Turborangers; Dazai invented goggles that allows him to see her. She teamed with Dr. Dazai to stop the Tribes. She befriends Saint Beast Rakia. She can emit a "Shine of the Soul" that temporarily disorients enemies, but can be fatal to her. She lives in a small, reconstructed doll house made for her by Dr. Dazai. She is not afraid to dive into danger to assist the Turborangers. After the finale, she becomes a star with Rakia.
- Sacred Beast Rakia (聖獣ラキア? Seijū Rakia): A white-maned, winged holy beast defender of Earth, the keeper of peace and guardian of fairies. He fought the Bōma long ago and sealed many of them, sealing himself near Bōma Castle. However the pollution of the Earth gravely weakened Rakia to being forced to negate the seal on Bōma Castle. He left the task of restoring peace to the future of the Earth to the Turborangers before dying and becoming a constellation to watch over them.
- Misa Yamaguchi (山口美佐? Yamaguchi Misa): The Turborangers' homeroom teacher. Her subject is math. A gentle and well-liked teacher, the five Turborangers are not in her good graces for how often they shirk their classes and extracurricular activities to take part in fighting (although it is unknown to her why they are always absent). She dislikes Dr. Dazai, believing he plays a part in corrupting the five. She is a fan of sumo wrestling. She has a younger sister named Mika who studies martial arts. She finds of the five's secret lives as Turborangers in the finale, boarding the Turbo Base to give them words of inspiration.
- Yumi Sakakibara (榊原由美? Sakakibara Yumi): Classmate of Shunsuke Hino/Yellow Turbo. The first ordinary human being who is able to break the seal of the Violent Demon Beast. Since she is the one who frees Toritsuki Boma, she is forced to help him steal the energy of a human child by playing her flute. Her conversation with Shunsuke helps her gain the courage to betray Toritsuki Boma and foil his goal.
- Mika Yamaguchi (山口美香? Yamaguchi Mika): Appears on episode 36. She is the little sister of Misa. She loves her sister more than anything and therefore hates the Turborangers for hiding something from Misa, while Misa cannot stop worrying them all the times. She later finds out Turborangers' true identity and learns to understand the situation. In the end, she does not tell her sister about Turborangers and let her find out about it herself. After knowing the Turborangers' true identity, she stops hating them and befriends them instead.
Bōma Hundred Tribes
The Bōma Hundred Tribes (暴魔百族? Bōma Hyakuzoku, [Note 2]) are worshipers of violence and magic who lost to human-Fairy coalition 20,000 years ago and sealed away. However, due to pollution that weakened the Fairy magic that sealed them, the Bōma are free to take their revenge on humanity from Bōma Castle (暴魔城? Bōma Jō) as their operations base. In the finale, Bōma Castle is destroyed by the Super Turbo Builder.
- Great Bōma Emperor Ragorn (大暴魔帝王ラゴーン? Daibōma Teiō Ragōn, 2-38, 45-50): The absolute dictator of the Bōma. He is initially partly immobile as he can still move his head and arms, he always remained seated on his throne with a set of tentacles that can stretch which he uses to punish his subordinates when they fail him. He is shown as merciless and cruel to everyone. He ends up sending Jarmin to her death after witnessing Zimba's brave sacrifice and that Yamimaru defeated the Turbo Robo. He sends Rehda to have his new Super Bōma Beast try to destroy the Turborangers. After Rehda and the Super Bōma Beast were both killed, he decides to punish Zulten with his powers for cowardice. He 'dies' after the conspiracy of Yamimaru and Kirika, who decided to kidnap Riki and pit him against Ragorn in a one-on-one battle to the death. Riki mortally wounds him with a stab at the heart, causing him to receive explosions while Zulten only watched helplessly from a distance, not able to lift a finger to help him because of the red thread barrier Yamimaru and Kirika placed to trap him with Red Turbo. However, he becomes mobile after retrieving the monster-enlarging orb, he tries to kill Red Turbo and he grows giant and decides to punish the two traitors Yamimaru and Kirika for their treachery. He was then 'destroyed' by Super Turbo Builder. He later revives himself by consuming energies of hatred and sadness around him, and becomes the gold-skinned and mobile Neo-Ragorn (ネオラゴーン? Neo Ragōn). He faces the Turborangers as a giant in the finale in which he is destroyed for good by the Super Turbo Robo.
- Bōma Doctor Rehda (暴魔博士レーダ? Bōma Hakase Rēda, 1-30): A bearded mystic genius with an ammonite-like head and a human face. He is second in command. Intelligent and cruel, he hates humanity and his schemes always involve the use of human deeds against humans themselves and mass killings of humans as well. He is usually portrayed to be the kind of field commander who does not show up often and works closely with Ragorn, receiving less ire and is entrusted with the most dangerous of operations. He is very skilled in witchcraft making him a powerful sorcerer. He was later sent to take care of the Turborangers with the Super Bōma Beast when both Jarmin and Jimba died where he almost buried them alive seeking revenge for Ragorn, as he was entrusted. When he saw the Turbo Robo pass by, he used his efforts to lure Red Turbo out to a battle hoping to divide the Turborangers. In that battle, Red Turbo and Rehda duel to the death. He reveals his illusion powers from his cape in an attempt to wipe out Red Turbo even with the ghosts of Jarmin and Zimba. However, Red Turbo managed to counter his attacks by slashing his cape, mortally wounded him and performed a GT Slash which inevitably killed him where he exploded violently as he uttered his final words in an illusion form cursing the Turborangers.
- Dark Bōma Zimba (暗闇暴魔ジンバ? Kurayami Bōma Jinba, 1-28): A samurai-like keikō-wearing masked warrior in black armor, expert in all martial arts with a mastery of swords. He loves to hate, a sadistic madman who takes pleasure in human suffering, especially when it comes to love. The reason from this was that Zimba was originally a man who fought a powerful army to win the heart of a princess he loved. However, when the fight left him near death, Zimba's final moments were the horrifying knowledge that the princess was disgusted by his ugly appearance and never loved him. He died soon after, his spirit burdened by his grudge and transforming his corpse into a Bōma. He is in love with Jarmin as well but denies it at times. When Ragorn becomes furious of how the Turborangers defeat them everything, Zimba protects Jarmin from their leader's rage while volunteering to finish the Turborangers once and far all. He bade farewell to Jarmin with a slashed bell who was sad to see him leave worrying he may never return. He was able to stop the Turborangers from being able to transform for a time but he was defeated by Red Turbo with a GT Crash and was finished off by the others with shots from the Turbo Laser. Yamimaru saw the opportunity to use him and he was enlarged which he defeated the Turbo Robo. However he was defeated by the Turbo Builder.
- Bōma Princess Jarmin (暴魔姫ジャーミン? Bōma Hime Jāmin, 1-29): A cold-hearten magician whose face becomes serpentine whenever angered, motivated to attack humans out of envy and spite while using a whip as her weapon in battle. Her tactics involve deception like when she forced the Ice and Fire Bōma to fight for her. It was insinuated by Zulten that she used the Sigh Bōma to impress her lover Zimba but she reacted by whipping him. When Ragorn got mad and decided to punish the others, she attempted to beg to Ragorn but her lover Zimba intervened to save her from death. She was hurt to see Zimba bid her farewell with a slashed bell fearing he may never return. When Zimba was killed, she was hurt as she had feelings for him holding the bell that Zimba slashed earlier. She was sentenced to death by Ragorn after Zimba's death where she released her ally Kuroko Bōma. The downside was that whatever happened to her monster also happened to her. She fused her soul with her other half but was destroyed by the Turbo Rugger.
- Rage Flying Bōma Zulten (かっとび暴魔ズルテン? Kattobi Bōma Zuruten, 1-51): A fat, disgusting creature able to turn into an ATV-like vehicle for Jarmin. He is armed with a slingshot. A cheat who does anything to win; weak willed, always sucking up to superiors. He was the last of the original four bad guys serving Lagorn to be killed. He was not in good graces with Ragorn for his cowardice (and serves as a scapegoat after the death of Rehda, he also tried to use Zulten Metal Type to win his position back) and remained hidden at times afterward but shows up at times especially after Rehda's death and during the arrival of Yamimaru and Kirika and remained unable to help his master during the battle of Red Turbo and Ragorn due to the red thread barrier placed by Yamimaru. He sided with the Wandering Bōma fearing his death but returned loyalty to Ragorn afterward being the type to side with whoever is in charge. He was killed when he tried to perform an assault on the Turbo Builder via fighter jets.
- Ular Soldiers (ウーラー兵? Ūrā Hei, [Note 3]): The foot soldiers under Ragorn's services, the black-skinned Hlar are one of the many Bōma Tribes and have the ability to merge into ball-shaped Ular Dumplings. They were originally led by Ular Bōma (ウーラーボーマ? Ūrābōma, 10), the Ular Clan's leader and greatest warrior who was sealed away. Once unsealed by Rehda with the Ular's prayers, Ular Bōma finds the Ular Road, which Japan National Route 44 was built on, and released the vast army of Ular sealed there. Then, to show his kind's unwavering loyalty to Ragorn, Ular Bōma has some of his Ular sacrifice themselves to invoke an earthquake to wipe out the human population. However, the Turborangers stop the scheme and the enlarged Ular Bōma was destroyed by the Turbo Robo's Turbo Cannon. The Ulars since vowed to kill the Turborangers to avenge their fallen leader. The Ulars are usually led to battle the red-skinned Ular Captain Wu (ウーラー隊長ウー? Ūrā Taichō Ū) and Ular Captain Lar (ウーラー隊長ラー? Ūrā Taichō Rā), but they no longer show up later on.
- Yamimaru (ヤミマル?, 13-50): A Wandering Bōma who was refused from being a member of the 100 Violent Demon Tribes. Because he was half-demon, he was not sealed and simply wandered Earth for 20,000 years to obtain as much knowledge as he could, while never being accepted by people. In modern times, he assumed the guise of Hikaru Nagareboshi (流星光? Nagareboshi Hikaru) and got himself transferred to the same school as the Turborangers. His plan is to destroy both humans and Bōma and let the Wandering Bōma as the only ones. Originally shaggy-haired, he later gains flashy red and black armor after the death of Rehda and with the help of Kirika. Before that, when he saw Zimba dead, he decided to use him at his own advantage to defeat the Turbo Robo by enlarging Zimba. He rides the giant bat Dragras which was destroyed when it sacrificed itself to destroy the monster Sealing Bōma. He plotted the downfall of Ragorn along with Kirika. He apparently succeeded in Ragorn's supposed death by kidnapping Red Turbo and having the two battle against each other. He took charge of the Tribes until Ragorn's resurrection, when he was almost killed if not saved by Kirika. He became peaceful in the end possibly because he was in love with Kirika.
- Kirika (キリカ?, 30-50): Another Wandering Bōma. She originally lived as a normal girl named Sayoko Tsukikage (月影小夜子? Tsukikage Sayoko) until she learned that she is Wandering Bōma on her 18th birthday, shortly after finding that the man and woman who raised(and protected her for 20,000 years) were really just Skull Monsters. As Tsukikage, was an outcast in school who secretly loved Riki. She is permanently connected to Yamimaru through the "red thread of fate." Cruel and lacking compassion, her resentment of humans stems from her life of being bullied. She is repulsed that the blood running through her is a mixture of human and demon, deciding to call herself a full-fledged demon and throw away her humanity for Yamimaru, resulting in his power-up and her armor. She combined with the monster Armor Bōma to become Armored Kirika. Near the final, she and Yamimaru meets Kirika's true father, a peaceful demon named Kashim (カシム? Kashimu), who tells them of how much he loved Kirika's fellow peaceful, human mother, who wanted for both sides to coexist and this begins to break the hatred of Kirika and causes her to cease fighting. Because she knows the hatred and loneliness that Yamimaru has been suffered for 20,000 years, she wishes him to release his hatred so she tries to persuade him. In the finale, she manages to save Yamimaru and left to live a peaceful life with him, as Sayoko and Hikaru.
- Weapons: five-pointed ringknife, Moonlight Sword (月光劍? Gekkou ken)
