Power Rangers Wild Force

Power Rangers Wild Force was the tenth series in the Power Rangers franchise. It was based on the Super Sentai series Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger. It ran for forty episodes in 2002 and follows the adventures of Cole Evans (Ricardo Medina Jr.) – a young man who had been staying with a tribe in a jungle for many years, as he tries to find his destiny in the fictitious town of Turtle Cove. He encounters the Animarium, a place that many believed to be a fairy tale. He joins four others who had a common path to become the new leader (Red Lion Wild Force Ranger) of the Wild Force Power Rangers:

  • Taylor Earhardt, the Yellow Eagle Wild Force Ranger (Alyson Kiperman)
  • Max Cooper, the Blue Shark Wild Force Ranger (Phillip Jeanmarie)
  • Alyssa Enrilé, the White Tiger Wild Force Ranger (Jessica Rey)
  • Danny Delgado, the Black Bison Wild Force Ranger (Jack Guzman)
  • Merrick Baliton, the Lunar Wolf Ranger (Phillip Andrew)

It is revealed to the Rangers that the Animarium is an island that floats in the sky. It is shaped like a turtle and is the home of the Wild Zords and Princess Shayla (Ann Marie Crouch), the Rangers’ mentor.

The Wild Force Power Rangers spend the series battling the Orgs, led by one Master Org (Ilia Volok). As the series continues, Cole discovers the truth about his real parents: his parents, Richard and Elizabeth Evans, were professors at Turtle Cove University, along with a family friend, Viktor Adler, a human reincarnation of the original Master Org. When they were sent to the jungle for research, they discover the remains of Master Org, in which a jealous Adler consumes in order to exact revenge on Richard, who had proposed to Elizabeth before he could. However, Adler goes insane, and kills both Richard and Elizabeth. For a while, their newborn son, Cole, was also presumed dead.

Power Rangers Wild Force is most remembered for its Power Rangers Tenth Anniversary episode Forever Red, which had Cole team up with the nine Red Rangers before him, (in order of incarnations, Jason Lee Scott, Aurico, Tommy Oliver, T.J. Johnson, Andros, Leo Corbett, Carter Grayson, Wesley “Wes” Collins and Eric Myers), in order to prevent the remaining generals of the Machine Empire from unearthing and reactivating Lord Zedd’s zord, Serpentera, which had been left buried on the moon.

Sadly Ricardo Medina Jr. later pled guilty to voluntary manslaughter for stabbing his roommate to death with a sword.
