Wild Force Power Rangers
The Wild Force Rangers are granted mystical powers and charged to protect the Earth from pollution-created creatures called Orgs. More specifically, they defend the fictional city of Turtle Cove, and are stationed aboard a flying island called the Animarium. Their mentor is Princess Shayla, and her mentor is Animus (who is an ancient Megazord). The Rangers represent the Ancient Animarium Warriors who also fought to destroy the Orgs and save the Earth.
The Rangers morph using devices known as Growl Phones (which have three operating modes: normal, human-form, and Power Animal Mode that resembles an animal). Each Ranger is also armed with a Crystal Saber (into which an Animal Crystal is inserted to call a Wild Zord). In addition to piloting their Zords (known as Wild Zords), the Rangers pilot other vehicles, known as the Soul Bird and the Savage Cycles. When the Rangers put their weapons together they create the Jungle Sword, which can be used by the Red Ranger to defeat certain enemies.
The Rangers have displayed claws on their gloves while morphed (making this team unique among Power Rangers incarnations). The Yellow Ranger, additionally, has wing-like flaps under her arms, giving her the ability to fly and glide on currents of wind.
Cole Evans is the protagonist and the Red Lion Ranger. He is the son of scientists Richard and Elizabeth Evans, who were killed by Master Org twenty years ago (10 years before the original series, and also the main Power Rangers Storyline). Cole, a baby at the time, was found by a tribe of natives and raised in the jungle by them. This life gave him an incredible connection to nature. The tribe later sent him on a quest to find out about himself, giving him a photo and a red crystal that turned out to be the Lion animal crystal. This also proves that Cole was at least 20 at his time being a Ranger, due to him only being a newborn baby when his parents were killed.
Cole, despite being the rookie of the team, was appointed its leader, just as the lion is the king of the jungle. Cole believes that there is good in all living creatures, despite the lack of hearts in Orgs. Cole even forgave the late Viktor Adler for the murder of his parents, placing a single rose on Adler's grave. After the Wild Force was disbanded, Cole used his talents to help animals. The original script to "The End Of The Power Rangers" mentions that he would become a veterinarian. This scene was actually filmed, as it is present on the Network Cut of the episode. It was ultimately cut and is not seen in the version of the episode that was aired. In "Reinforcements from the Future", Cole was the only one who believed Ransik for he was remorseful in his part in creating the Mut-Orgs.
Before becoming a Wild Force Ranger, Cole was raised in the wilderness by a tribe of natives which greatly prepared him to be a Ranger. He has amazing agility, sharp senses, and thinks on his feet. When the natives felt Cole was old enough, they gave him a few items they found on him as a baby - a picture of his parents, and the Red Lion orb. With only these two things to go on, Cole left the wilderness for the city of Turtle Cove to find his destiny. Shortly after, he was found by Princess Shayla and the Rangers, and chosen by the Red Lion to be the Red Wild Force Ranger.
Cole has a love for animals and the wilderness. He immediately fell in love with his new home on the Animarium. His connection with nature allows him to communicate with animals, including the Wild Zords. He once tried to appeal to the heart of an Org, only to find with his senses that the Org had none. Cole is a bit inexperienced in the ways of the civilized man, but approaches each new challenge with zeal, such as learning to ride his Savage Cycle. Following the defeat of the Orgs he would give up his powers along with his teammates, but they would later reclaim them in order to battle the Warstar Armada alongside the Megaforce Rangers, who also fought with the aid of Cole's Red Lion Zord.
As the Red Ranger, Cole fights with the ferocity of the Blazing Lion. He is also equipped with the Red Lion Fang, Lion Blaster, Falcon Summoner, the Falconator, and the Animarium Armor. His Power Animals are the Red Lion, the Green Gorilla, and the Ruby Falcon Wildzords.
Cole is the only Ranger who can understand the Wild Zords when they speak to the Rangers telepathically.
Taylor Earhardt is the Yellow Eagle Ranger and second-in-command of the team, formerly the leader. As a young girl, Taylor looked out an airplane window and saw the Animarium. She later landed on it while serving in the Air Force, and found Princess Shayla then became the leader of the group until Cole came and joined the group. Taylor was the first Wild Force Ranger to be recruited and had served as a Ranger for over a year prior to being replaced as leader by Cole Evans, the Red Ranger and rookie of the team, much to her dismay.
Taylor's military past has made her rather regimental, tomboyish and insensitive, leading her to write a rule book for the team. The jealousy she felt towards Cole deepened when he disregarded it. After Master Org was defeated, she rejoined the Air Force, and frequently meets her friend the Yellow Eagle in the sky.
As the Yellow Ranger, she has the grace of the Soaring Eagle. She is also equipped with the Golden Eagle Sword, Soaring Darts, and Armadillo Puck. Her Wild Zords are the Soaring Eagle, and Bear Brothers Zords (one Bear Zord is a Black Bear and the other Bear Zord is a Polar Bear).
During the cross-over with Time Force, she has a rather tense love/hate relationship with the equally dominant and commanding Eric Myers, the Quantum Ranger. She would later return for the final battle in Super Megaforce.
Unlike Alyssa, Taylor does not have a skirt with her ranger suit; this is because her counterpart is male.
Taylor is played by Alyson Kiperman.
Max was the third Wild Force Ranger to be recruited and both he and Alyssa were Rangers for roughly six months prior to Cole joining the team. Max became a Power Ranger when he aided two girls in escaping from Turbine Org. After Taylor and Alyssa successfully chased off the Org, the Blue Shark animal crystal materialized in Max's pocket and he became the Blue Wild Force Power Ranger.
Max was originally training to be a pro-bowler when he became a Power Ranger. When he quit, he lost the respect of his teacher. Max later returned to learn his mentor's ultimate bowling technique called the Tornado Spin for use against Bowling Org. After much convincing, his teacher taught him the move.
Max is considered the "kid" of the group, because of his youth and childlike behavior. He constantly tries to prove himself, leading to cockiness and aggressiveness on his part. He brings a sense of humor to the Rangers, and is a master of improvisation. Max also hates being called a kid. He usually calls the Blue Shark "Sharky", implying that they share a very strong bond.
After surrendering their powers, Max and Danny left Turtle Cove together and went on a long vacation around the world, something they like to call the "Never Give Up" tour. They later returned to battle alongside their teammates and other veteran Rangers in Super Megaforce.
Max is played by Phillip Jeanmarie.
Alyssa Enrilé is the White Tiger Ranger.
Alyssa is the kind, nurturing member of the group. When any Ranger is injured, she is right there tending to their wounds. Alyssa tries to defuse any tension between team members. Being a kind-hearted, sensitive girl, Alyssa often was in the position of peacekeeper. In the early days of the team, Alyssa tried to keep peace between Cole and Taylor who would have conflicting ideas on what was best for the team. Alyssa often took care of the others Ranger's when they were injured as well. She would cook for them and even read stories to Danny and Max. There have been a few hints that Alyssa may have a crush on Cole. When Alyssa wasn't fighting Orgs, she stayed active by riding her bike to school and taking dance classes at Turtle Cove University.
Alyssa was trained in the martial arts by her father, who is a renowned martial arts instructor. He intended for her to eventually take over running his school, and was heartbroken when Alyssa decided to move to Turtle Cove and attend Turtle Cove University. One day when he visited his daughter, he was proud to discover that not only was she's a Ranger, but she had excelled in the martial arts he taught her. As a result, he accepted her decision to continue her education.
When all the Orgs were defeated, Alyssa was relieved of her life as a Ranger. She finished college and became a kindergarten teacher. In the last episode, she is seen telling her story to her class in a fairy tale fashion, making her the narrator of the series. She subsequently joined the Ranger army in the finale of Super Megaforce.
As the White Wild Force Ranger, Alyssa fights with the guile and agility of the Noble Tiger. She is also equipped with the Tiger Baton and Deer Clutcher. Her Power Animals are the White Tiger, the Cyan Elephant, the Black Bear (shared with Taylor), and the Jade Deer Wildzords.
Alyssa is the second Ranger to join the team (after Taylor and before Max, Danny and Cole).
Alyssa is played by Jessica Rey.
Daniel "Danny" Delgado is the Black Bison Ranger. His motto is "Never give up" which is mentioned several times during the season. Most times, Max Cooper, the Blue Shark Ranger, would have to remind him what that motto is whenever he feels like giving up. There is no clear origin of this phrase from a character standpoint. But the phrase may come from a quote from Winston Churchill, in which he was quoted with saying; "Never, Never, Never give up".
He works at a flower shop, where he is very passionate about the flowers. He has a fear of heights which is shown when trying to retrieve the Giraffe Zord crystal after he knocked it out of Toxica's hand in the episode Predazord Awaken. Danny was the fourth Ranger to be recruited and had served as a Ranger for two months prior to Cole joining the team.
Danny is the strongest Wild Ranger physically, but deep inside is a peaceful man, with a sweet side and some childish quirks (like sleeping with a Teddy Bear). He is madly in love with a girl named Kendall, who works in the same flower shop as he, but he is too shy to tell her, and gets (even more) clumsy when she is nearby. Eventually, she found out that he was the Black Ranger, but decided that he needed to focus on his mission, and turned him down. When the Rangers disbanded, he and Max Cooper embarked on a global vacation, visiting different cities around the world. According to an earlier script, Kendall was supposed to join them. Danny also appeared as part of the Ranger army in Super Megaforce, though like most of the Rangers he was not seen with his helmet off.
While Cole was originally thought of as the only Wild Force Ranger who could understand the Wild Zords (a trait which Merrick also probably shared), Danny has been shown on more than one occasion to be able to understand the Bison Zord. Whether he can talk to anyone else's Zords remains unknown. Besides the Bison Zord, Danny also commands the Rhinoceros Zord and the Armadillo Zord.
Danny is played by Jack Guzman.
Merrick Baliton is the Lunar Wolf Ranger, the sixth Ranger of the series.
He was once one of the original six warriors of Animaria. He witnessed the battle between the ancient, evil Master Org and Animus (a force for good). When Animus fell, Merrick took it upon himself to defeat Master Org. Knowing that he did not have enough power to defeat Master Org alone, he donned a cursed wolf mask which gave him the power of the Duke Org sealed in it called Zen-Aku. With this power, he was able to defeat Master Org. However, he was soon corrupted by the mask's power and Zen-Aku took control of his body. Merrick pleaded with his comrades to kill him before the mask took complete control. He was then taken over completely by the mask's power and attacked them. But rather than kill Merrick, they sealed him into a stone-coffin in order to protect the world from Zen-Aku's power.
Centuries later, he was released by Nayzor to destroy the Wild Force Rangers of the present day. As Zen-Aku, he battled them on several occasions. But he was not all evil. When Alyssa was gravely injured by Jindrax and Toxica, he bandaged her wound that could have broken her ankle while she was unconscious. The fighting went on until the Power Rangers learned the truth and helped free him from the curse, with help from the Rhino and Armadillo Wild Zords. Princess Shayla had figured out the curse's power was tied to his Zords and had the Rangers destroy his Zords as the Predazord, breaking the curse. Before that, it seemed like Merrick was gaining short busts of control, such as when he saw Alyssa lying injured and unconscious after tumbling down a hill, he stops to bandage up her wounds. Merrick soon became the Lunar Wolf Ranger and comes to the others' aid when needed. He is also the strongest Ranger of them all, as he was able to defeat the others while he was still Zen-Aku.
Unfortunately, breaking the curse also freed Zen-Aku from his curse and he returned to do battle with the Rangers. Merrick had to face his apparently unbeatable dark side, but using a new pool trick he learned from his friend and boss Willie, Merrick weakened Zen-Aku and destroyed him himself with the help of the Armadillo Zord. Its later revealed that Zen-Aku somehow survived, but he seeks redemption now like Merrick.
Unlike Rangers turned from evil to good in previous series of Power Rangers (notably Tommy Oliver in the original series and Ryan Mitchell in Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue), Merrick did not immediately join the cohesive group of the other Rangers. Indeed, he is notable for remaining something of an antihero, like his Time Force counterpart Eric Myers throughout the series because of his largely self-imposed exile from Animaria. He, however, befriends a roadside bar operator named Willie, who he convinces to stay with as an employee after defending his establishment from thugs. It is repeatedly hinted that Willie is aware of his identity as a Power Ranger due to his mysterious disappearances. He is an avid player of pool, although he only plays pool to repeatedly practice one trick shot (the same one used in his Lunar Cue finishing move, which also served to summon his Wild Zords).
It is suggested throughout the series that Merrick has long been romantically involved with Princess Shayla, although presumably the guilt he had being under the curse of Zen-Aku, along with his self-imposed exile, prevented them from expressing it for a long while.
In the finale, it is revealed that Merrick has made his peace with the now independent Zen-Aku, and that they are travelling the world together both seeking redemption for their actions.
Merrick is played by Philip Andrew.
Allies of the Power Rangers
Princess Shayla is the Princess of the Animarium, a floating landmass that is the last remnant of the lost world of Animaria. After the defeats of Animus and Master Org, she fell asleep for centuries. However, she was reawakened along with the Org spirits by the pollution caused by humans. Shayla serves as the adviser to the Rangers, as well as filling the role of damsel in distress. However, she can and will defend herself if absolutely necessary, this is proven in the episode The Master's Herald. To be mentioned also that has powers to fight evil or enclose although rarely were shown. She has a romantic relationship with her former protector, Merrick Baliton, but he refuses to let his feelings get in the way of his duty.
Previously before the occurrence of the chaos in her kingdom, Merrick had given to the Princess her bat-shaped necklace, and she tells Zen-Aku that someone very special to her (Merrick) gave it to her a long ago and she wears it in his memory, in "Fishing for a Friend" Master Org grabs the necklace on Princess Shayla's neck, is revealed it was a magical necklace that has great power. when Toxica hear that the Princess was still captive, she told Jindrax "then he still have her necklace, with all that power in his hands, he can do anything, even including finding where they are" Master Org uses the necklace to protect the Nexus, revive fallen Org generals and also use it in the final ceremony to revive the Org heart, after that the necklace does not reappear and is unknown what happened to it, probably it is in the ruined cavern of the Nexus.
After Master Org was destroyed, Shayla took back the Wild Force Powers and went back into the sky, until the Wild Zords are needed to protect the earth once more. She was not seen in Super Megaforce, despite the fact that the Megaforce Rangers visit the Animarium and find the active Red Lion. In the Super Sentai version of the series, however, Red Lion was the only survivor of a battle that destroyed the other Wild Zords.
Princess Shayla is played by Ann Marie Crouch.
Kendall works at a flower shop where Danny used to work before he was chosen to become a Ranger. Danny had a crush on her, but after she learns of his identity as a Power Ranger when Wedding Dress Org attacked. After the Org's defeat, both Kendall and Danny agreed that any chance of them being romantically involved would never be.
Kendall is played by Sandra McCoy.
Willie is an owner at a road house. After when the unruly thugs were ejected by Merrick, he allows him to stay with him. He once in a while plays a game of pool with Merrick. It's thanks to a pool trick Willie taught Merrick that the rangers were able to defeat a monster using the Armadillo zord.
Willie is played by J. D. Hall.
Animus is a deity-like Megazord who was said by Princess Shayla to be the direct ancestor of the Rangers' Wild Force Megazord. Animus is composed of the Black Lion Zord, the Buffalo Zord, the Condor Zord, the Sawshark Zord, and the Leopard Zord. 3,000 years ago, he battled against the original Master Org and was destroyed, but his spirit lingers on.
In the modern day while the Rangers were fighting Zen-Aku, he appeared to Zen-Aku and urged him to "remember". He later helps the Rangers again, he does this by eclipsing the full moon that was powering Zen-Aku's curse that temporary restored him to Merrick. Animus' spirit later instructed Princess Shayla to help Merrick get the Deer Zord to help the Rangers fight Tombstone Org. After Tombstone Org's destruction, Animus' spirit appears in the sky as the Rangers thank him. Animus' spirit quotes "You're welcome" and disappears.
Animus reappeared later as a form of a human boy named "Kite" and befriended the Rangers. After he revealed himself as Animus, he took the Wild Zords away after freeing the Wild Force Megazord from Mandilok's control device, feeling that the Rangers were unworthy of their zords as humanity had done so much damage to the world on their own without the Orgs. He offers Merrick a chance to join with him (because of their friendship 3,000 years ago) but Merrick turned him down. After witnessing how truly committed the Rangers are to defending Earth and fight on even without their Zords, as well as seeing ordinary humans risk themselves to save others, Animus reveals that all of this was part of a test that they passed, and he returns the Wild Zords and gives Cole a powerful motorcycle.
Animus reappeared again during the finale as he faces against the Master Org, Merrick assists him with the Predazord. But Master Org proved to be more stronger and destroyed Animus and the Predazord. Animus reverts to the form of Kite before finally dying. The Zord components of Animus were later seen when the Wild Zords do a combined attack with the Rangers to destroy Master Org.
Animus is voiced by Charles Gideon David and Kite is played by Ryan Goldstein.
Alpha 7 was the fourth Alpha robot in Power Rangers. He is featured in Forever Red, where he is seen helping Tommy Oliver and Andros on the Astro Megaship Mark II. He has Alpha 5's voice and demeanor, but his appearance is made up of pieces of both Alpha 4 and Alpha 5.
Alpha 7 was voiced by Richard Steven Horvitz (who also voiced Alpha 4 and Alpha 5).
Orgs are the Wild Force Rangers' antagonists, pollution-oriented creatures that seek to take over the earth. An Org's life-force is connected to its horns for if it loses them, it is greatly weakened. Unlike humans, they lack blood (which was one of the telltale signs that Zen-Aku wasn't a true Org when he had possessed Merrick).
Master Org is a name that applies to two beings in the story of Power Rangers: Wild Force. One of them is the original Master Org, who led the battle against the Animarium 3,000 years ago and destroyed Animus. However, that Master Org was then destroyed by Merrick Baliton, the guardian of Princess Shayla who was empowered by the evil wolf mask of Zen-Aku.
Years later, a human reincarnated "Master Org", the scientist Dr. Viktor Adler and his companions Richard and Elizabeth Evans discovered the seeds that remained of Master Org while on an expedition to prove the existence of the Animarium. Driven by his jealousy toward Richard, who had the hand of Elizabeth and had taken the spotlight from him when they announced that they would be searching for the Animarium, Dr. Adler took the seeds secretly, and out of personal revenge, swallowed them and gained the powers of an Org, killing his companions, but never finding Cole.
So it was that Dr. Viktor Adler became the second Master Org and he wore a helmet with a fake horn. He was aided by the Duke Orgs Jindrax and Toxica, who later found out his secret. He temporarily turned them into slaves, but they escaped. After repeated defeats at the hands of the Wild Force Power Rangers, Master Org fought them himself. In the process, he lost his Org powers, and was then killed by General Org Mandilok.
However, from Dr. Adler's dead husk was born the true Master Org, with a real Org horn on his forehead. He sent Duke Org Onikage to arrange for his return and destroy Toxica. When he came, he destroyed Mandilok and kidnapped Shayla. He then invoked a ceremony to create an Org Heart that included Princess Shayla's necklace, summoning Retinax, Nayzor, and Mandilok to guard him. He swallowed the Heart, and his human body crumbled into dust.
Unfortunately, Master Org used the Org Heart to create a full-Org body, which resembled a composite of the three General Orgs, with his forearms modeled after Jindrax and Toxica, and had taken the Nexus Blade as his own weapon. He attacked the Animarium, destroyed the Predazord and Animus (and with that, Kite was no more) and was seemingly destroyed by the Kongazord Striker, but the Org Heart quickly restored him. He then proceeded to destroy the Kongazord Striker, as well as every last Wild Zord, (therefore, the Rangers lose their powers in the process) and brought the Animarium down to Earth. He attacked Turtle Cove, but was destroyed when the Wild Zords were all revived and countless others combined powers with them. Master Org was hit with an Ultra Roar, and disappeared into nothingness. The Org Heart itself was then destroyed by the Red Lion Ranger and the Lunar Wolf Ranger with the Jungle Sword. With the destruction of Master Org, Dr. Viktor Adler could finally rest in peace.
Master Org is played by Ilia Volok.
NOTE: Master Org's costume is inspired by the Gorma Emperor XV and Gorma Emperor XVI: Shadam, the lead villains of Gosei Sentai Dairanger, who never appeared, as a lead villain, when the Dairanger footage was used in Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers (his place was taken by the American original Lord Zedd). Instead some of his footage was used when they made him into Mondo the Magician (the main antagonist of "Grumble the Magic Elf" and an old friend of Rita Repulsa).
The Org Generals are higher-ranking Duke Orgs that are Master Org's most powerful servants. They all have a single horn on top of their heads, a long cape, and are generally themed after some kind of body part. In the Super Sentai series, they were the leaders of the Orgs, Master Org's counterparts being made up of multiple Orgs.
Retinax is an Org General and the bodyguard of Master Org. He is an eye-themed Org and his name is combination of retina and axe. After his master's destruction, he roamed the planet in secrecy, believing he had failed. He was later found by Toxica and Jindrax, who told him Master Org had returned. Seeking to redeem himself, Retinax attempted to destroy the Rangers. However, he was defeated by the Wild Force Megazord (empowered by a newly hatched Soul Bird), and then destroyed by Master Org (whom he did not recognize because he was the human Viktor Adler).
Retinax was brought back with the other General Orgs Nayzor and Mandilok to defend the pillars used in the Org Heart ceremony. He was defeated, but returned fused together with the other Generals as Master Org's new body.
In battle, Retinax uses an axe with an eye embedded in it, which also forms part of the Nexus Blade. This General Org can also shoot electricity from his main eye and can extend his arms to wrap around enemies.
Retinax is voiced by Michael Sorich, and of the three Org Generals was the one who had the least role in the series (only appearing in two episodes).
Nayzor was one of three General Orgs modeled after parts of the face being modeled after a nose and ears. His name is a corruption of the word nasal. 3000 years ago, he protected the Animal Crystals of the Dark Wild Zords, along with the cursed wolf mask needed to control them. He confronted Merrick Baliton when the latter tried to take the crystals, but failed to stop the Animarian warrior's escape. As a result, Master Org is destroyed by the Predazord, and Merrick becomes corrupted by the mask, become the evil Zen-Aku.
In the present, Nayzor is revived by Master Org to destroy the Rangers, and unleashes Zen-Aku to do so. When Zen-Aku begins to remember who he is, Nayzor suppresses his memories with a strange insect.
After the curse of the Wolf Mask was broken by the Wild Force Rangers, Nayzor uses the animal crystals stolen by Zen-Aku to create the powerful Quadra Org. Along with Jindrax and Toxica, he oversaw the new Org's battle against the Rangers. However, the Org is beaten by Merrick-now the Lunar Wild Force Ranger-forcing Nayzor to join the battle personally. Despite his power, the General Org is defeated and destroyed by Merrick, leaving only his crown behind.
Toxica steals the crown in order to access its power, briefly becoming the General Org Necronomica before her defeat by the Power Rangers. At Master Org's command, she later revives Nayzor as Super Nayzor, who pounds on the Lunar Wolf Ranger, completely annihalating him. The Rangers join in the fight as well, but Super Nayzor defeats them too, even knocking them out, save Merrick and Cole, who both charge Nayzor only to be defeated again. Right before the killing blow, Animus intervenes and teleports all the Rangers to safety. Cole and Merrick decide to attack Super Nayzor again, who almost kills them after much fighting, but Cole sumoned the Falcon Summoner (a gift from his unconscious teammates who all had a shared dream) and destroyed Super Nayzor, who the grew to enormous height. Cole and his recently revived team defeat Super Nayzor with the Isis Megazord.
Nayzor is revived in his normal form during the ceremony of the Org Heart, and is ordered to guard one of the pillars involved in the ceremony. He wrecks the Lunar Wolf Ranger and the Noble Tiger again, but is finally pinned by Merrick, allowing Alyssa to destroy the pillar. He appears later as a part of Master Org's new Org form.
In his normal form, Nayzor uses a paper fan that can deflect projectiles back at enemies. The fan is also used in the formation of the Nexus Blade, acting as the hilt of the sword-like weapon. He could also fire electricity from the purple colored gem on his chest. In his Super Form, Nayzor used a staff tipped with hook-like claws identical to the ones on his knuckles (similar to Wolverine's retractable claws from X-Men). and feet. In Super Form, Nayzor could also manipulate electricity with his hands and from his eyes. A "Next time on Power Rangers: Wild Force" sequence also showed that Nayzor could separate his molecules before he is attacked and can reform, although this was not seen in any actual episode.
Nayzor is voiced by Ken Merckx.
Mandilok was one of three General Orgs based on parts of the face. Mandilok was themed on the mouth, having dozens of them all over his body. Mandilok had both male and female voices, and an appetite that could not be satisfied. He was revived by Jindrax and Toxica to destroy Viktor Adler, and did so, but then treated the Duke Orgs like dirt.
In battle, Mandilok used a giant fork and knife that could combine into a massive staff. These were used in the formation of the Nexus Blade. Mandilok could also breathe fire from the mouth with the male voice on his stomach and could also manipulate electricity with his hands.
He was later destroyed by a returning Master Org, but revived by him to help Retinax and Nayzor guard the Nexus during the Org Heart ceremony. He was destroyed again, but reappeared as part of Master Org's new body.
His name is a pun on the word mandible.
The Duke Orgs listed below serve Master Org and/or the Org Generals. Like the Org Generals, they have a single horn on their heads, but their capes tend to be somewhat shorter.
Toxica is Jindrax's partner and best friend, and possibly love interest, a Duke Org and the Mistress of Magic.
She can resurrect fallen Orgs and cause them to grow by reciting the spell "Evil spirits of toil and strife, give this fallen Org new life" and firing some magic beans from her staff, which grow into vines that recreate and enlarge the Org's body. She and Jindrax hid themselves for centuries after Master Org's defeat, and were the first to rejoin him in the Nexus when he re-emerged. Toxica grew suspicious of Master Org, when she saw him adjust his horn, something no real Org should be able to do.
After General Nayzor was destroyed, Toxica temporarily used his crown to become the General Org Necronomica (whose name may have been inspired by the Necronomica, a fictitious grimoire by H.P. Lovecraft). This form was defeated by the Rangers and she regressed back to normal. Master Org was not pleased with Toxica's act an zapped her until Jindrax vouched for her.
Toxica and Jindrax later received newer forms from Master Org when they exposed him, and were brainwashed, becoming the submissive slaves Super Jindrax and Super Toxica (Toxica's enhanced form had facial features similar to her Necronomica form). However, they were later freed, and unleashed the General Org Mandilok to aid them against Master Org.
Duke Org Onikage tricked her into cutting off her horn, telling her that it would grow back (a lie) and without it, she can survive to the painful effects of the Sacred water. After this, she was near-death and was soon destroyed by Mandilok when he used her as a human shield against the rangers' Jungle Blaster.
Jindrax then re-energized Toxica's severed horn by tricking the Rangers into firing the Jungle Blaster at it (backstabbing the Locomotive Org in the process), and used it to resurrect her from the Netherworld she was trapped in. She aided the Rangers by rescuing Princess Shayla, and then left with Jindrax to travel the world and "find herself". Curiously, Master Org's final body included a gauntlet on its right arm that resembled Toxica's helmet.
Toxica is played by Sin Wong.
Jindrax is known for his skill with knives (and occasionally swords), and uses them constantly in battle - he was particularly a battle rival to Taylor (Yellow Ranger). In a few episodes, he causes monsters to grow using Toxica's staff and reciting the spell, "Evil spirits of toil and strife, give this fallen Org new life!" He is also fond of the word "Inconceivable".
He was later transformed and brainwashed, along with Toxica, into Super Jindrax by Master Org after they discovered that he was a human. He is released from this state after being defeated by the Animarium Armor, and set out with Toxica to free the general Mandilok; together, they were able to depose Master Org (having since lost his powers) and seemingly kill him for good. However, the two were mistreated under Mandilok, and Toxica was actually destroyed in battle with the Rangers.
He has a brother named Juggelo, who was imprisoned along with the other Orgs 3000 years ago. Together, the two form "Team Carnival" (a reference to their clown like appearances). In one episode, Jindrax eats Toxica's magic beans to grow large and fight alongside Juggelo. After Juggelo is destroyed, the effect of the beans wears off and Jindrax shrinks to his normal size. This makes him the only Org ever to grow large and return to normal (indeed, Toxica warned him that this was normally not possible). After Juggelo's death, Toxica joins Team Carnival in his stead.
Jindrax later brought Toxica back from the netherworld she had been sent to by charging her severed horn with energy from the Rangers' weapons. The two aided the Rangers in the final battle with Master Org, and then left to travel the world with Toxica and "find himself". Strangely, Master Org later appeared in a form with a left-arm gauntlet or growth resembling the top of Jindrax's head.
Jindrax was voiced by Richard Cansino for four episodes, and later his US suit actor Danny Wayne Stallcup (credited in this series as Danny Wayne) who played Jindrax in his human-guise prior to the series beginning.
Zen-Aku is a wolf-themed Duke Org, cursed ages ago and imprisoned within a wolf mask. When Master Org defeated Animus, Merrick took it upon himself to defeat his evil. Knowing that he did not have enough power to defeat Master Org alone, he obtained the cursed wolf mask and used it to summon the Dark Wild Zords. Although Merrick was able to defeat Master Org with the power of the Predazord, he was soon corrupted by the mask's power, allowing Zen-Aku to take control of his body. With his willpower failing against the curse, Merrick begged his comrades to kill him before he killed them, but instead, they sealed him into a stone coffin in order to protect the world from Zen-Aku's power.
Centuries later, Zen-Aku was released by Nayzor to destroy the Wild Force Rangers of the present day. As Zen-Aku, he battled them on several occasions, proving to be more than a match in battle - even stealing some of their zords for himself - until the Power Rangers learned the truth about his past and helped free Merrick from the curse. As it turned out, Merrick's transformation was caused by the full moon, (similar to the transformation of a werewolf) and Zen-Aku's power was weaker during the waning of the moon and during lunar eclipses. During a battle, Princess Shayla realized that the power of the curse was connected to the Predazord and told the Rangers to destroy the Predazord to break the curse. With help from the Rhino and Armadillo Wild Zords, the Wild Force Megazord was able to destroy the Predazord, thus breaking the curse due to the power of the curse being connected to the Predazord.
Unfortunately, when the Rangers broke the curse that corrupted the Predazord, they also lifted the original curse that trapped Zen-Aku in the wolf mask. After regenerating his true form, Zen-Aku and the Lunar Wolf Ranger fight, with Merrick being completely wrecked by Zen-Aku, who attempted to absorb him to regain the power he'd had when they were bonded together. Princess Shayla revealed that the curse had split Zen-Aku's power among the mask, Merrick, and the Dark Zords; with the curse broken, it had all concentrated within Zen-Aku himself. When the Wild Force Rangers finally convinced Merrick to accept their help, they were able to overwhelm Zen-Aku, but the Duke Org responded by growing in size. In this state, he overpowered both the Wild Force Megazord and the Predazord, deflecting everything they threw at him. Fortunately, Merrick used a pool trick he'd learned from his friend Willie to send the Armadillo Zord flying into Zen-Aku's face, destroying his horn and badly weakening him. The Lunar Wolf Ranger then struck him with the Revolver Phantom, causing Zen-Aku to crumble to dust, seemingly defeated.
In the finale, Zen-Aku is seen alive and seeks redemption just like Merrick. They are last seen in or near a forest about to begin their journey together.

Onikage is a ninja-based Duke Org who appeared seemingly out of nowhere to aid Mandilok. However, he was actually working for Master Org, preparing things for his return. Onikage wields a katana-like saber in battle, but his true ability lies in his illusion powers. He can turn himself and others invisible, generate holograms of varying complexity (including images of multiple Orgs and a gigantic version of himself), and fire beams of light that create murderous clones of anyone they hit. Once he became gigantic, he also displayed the ability to rip open dimensions and transport others to the spirit world, where he and the souls of deceased Orgs would team up on his unlucky victims. He succeeded in capturing Princess Shayla, getting rid of Toxica, and setting up Mandilok to be destroyed. Onikage then used his ninja powers to create the Shadow Rangers, evil clones of the Rangers, whom the Rangers could not damage without hurting themselves. Jindrax upset his plans by reflecting one of his blasts back at him, creating a clone that Cole destroyed with the Falcon Summoner, thereby destroying Onikage as well (incidentally, he seemed impressed that he was defeated in such a way, claiming that Cole's move was worthy of a ninja). Thanks to Master Org, Onikage returned as a giant, and fought the Rangers in another dimension where the spirits of defeated Orgs reside. However, with the help of the Pegasus Megazord, he was defeated for good.
Onikage is voiced by Dan Woren.
In the year 3000, only three Orgs remained of the once great army that battled Animaria. Imprisoned in statues, they were stumbled upon by Ransik. When he learned that his cause-taking over the world-was the same as their own, he released them. They copied his DNA, combining the invulnerability of Mutants with their ancient Org powers. In exchange, they gave Ransik the power to pull weapons from his body. After Ransik's incarceration, the Mut-Orgs (who spoke their own language, which was actually English played in reverse) escaped into the past to seek out Master Org. After thoroughly trouncing the Wild Force Power Rangers several times, they find him. However, the Mut-Orgs are then met in battle by the combined Time Force/Wild Force team, as well as by Ransik. When they attempt to summon an energy blast, Ransik leaps in, taking the blast at point blank and causing it to wash back over the Mut-Orgs. As a result, their Mutant halves are destroyed, and their Org halves soon follow at the combined attacks of the Time Force Rangers and the Wild Force Rangers.
The Mut-Orgs' names are Takach, Kired, and Rofang. They were named for fans Jason Takach, Derik Smith, and Joe Rovang. They replace the Three Org Brothers from Gaoranger (Zeus Org, Poseidon Org, and Hades Org), since the latter's suits were destroyed in a fire before filming could take place. Instead, the three Mut-Orgs are made up of parts of various other monster costumes in repainted form and with horns added onto the heads:
- Rofang - Head and right arm of Body Switcher, body of Darkliptor, sword of Cyborg Ecliptor, left shoulder armor of Strikning, and boots of Prince Gasket.
- Takach - Head and boots of Strikning, body of Gatekeeper, left arm of unused Ohranger monster Bara Police, right arm of unused GoGoV monster Jeruda (referred to as "Abominus" in the Lightspeed Rescue video game), and weapons of Tire Org.
- Kired - Body and head of Deviot's Keonta-Spell form, right hand of Beetleborgs Metallix monster Repgillian, wings of unused GoGoV monster Zairen (the inspiration for Mermatron in the Lightspeed Rescue video game who also briefly appears in an advanced form in "Sorcerer of the Sands"), and the boots of Radster.
Machine Empire Remnants
The Putrids are a weak and underdeveloped version of Org that serves as the Org Empire's footsoldiers. They are usually summoned by a pink slime from a conch shell-like container that Toxica carries around with her. The Putrids are basically young Orgs, with their underdeveloped horns indicating their (lack of) strength. They wield kanabos in battle, which can also launch massive blasts of flame.
When Toxica pours her slime on the ground and the Putrids form, they perform a strange dance: they keep touching their heads. Because of this, one can assume that an Org's weak spot is his/her horn (and perhaps their greatest shame is to have the horn severed).
Normal Orgs first appear as spirits that possess an object, basing their forms and powers on the nature of the object. Unlike the Duke Orgs, the normal Orgs have two horns. When beaten, their bodies dissolve into pale green ooze. To make an Org grow, Toxica would perform a spell while chanting: "Evil spirits of toil and strife, give this fallen Org new life!" After this chant, Toxica would thrust her staff forward, launching seeds at the Org ooze; upon implantation, the seeds rapidly grow into twisted vines that reconstitute the fallen Org as a giant.
