Power Rangers Dino Charge Episodes
First, here’s the series official synopsis:
In Dino Charge, the Paragon Prisms were given to a dozen dinosaurs for safe keeping by an alien, but they were lost when asteroids hit the Earth and wiped out the dinos. Now in the present day, an intergalactic bounty hunter starts sniffing around Earth looking for the Prisms in order to harness their power and annihilate the world, so a team of Power Rangers forms to find the Prisms first and fight the bounty hunter and other threats with dino-powered swords, blasters, Zords (in Power Rangers lingo, large fighting machines), and Megazords.
We have plot synopses and episode reviews all in one place for you:
Millions of years after the mysterious and powerful Energems were entrusted to the now extinct dinosaurs for protection from a ruthless bounty hunter, a pair of courageous teens find themselves in possession of two of these long lost precious artifacts, and come face to face with a monster who will do everything in his power to steal them for himself.
A new teen finds his own Energem and joins Tyler and Shelby on their pilgrimage to the Dinosaur Museum, where they learn they are a part of the elite team called the Power Rangers.

Power Rangers Dino Charge Cast
Dino Charge features a diverse array of characters, some from present day, others from hundreds of years ago. We even have one from hundreds of thousands of years ago!
Brennan Mejia as Tyler:
Red Ranger is the 18 year-old leader of the Rangers. He’s curious, energetic, charming, and gregarious; a free-spirit who full embraces the idea that life is an adventure. While childlike at times, Tyler has the ability to switch on his serious side and his role as the Leader is unquestionable. He lives everyday like it’s an adventure. as the leader of the Dino Charge Rangers, he is driven by his love for adventure and new experiences, as well as the mystery of his missing father.
Yoshi Sudarso as Koda:
Blue Ranger (The Caveman) 100,000 years ago, Koda lived in jungle cave with his tribe. Today, his caveman ways make him a fish-out-of-water, leading to some wonderful comedy. He eats with his fingers, doesn’t like to wear shoes, and sees no benefits in combing his hair. He isn’t the smartest Ranger, but he’s got a heart of gold, is fiercely loyal, and is as strong as an ox. His survival instincts are sharper than any other Ranger. He is a caveman who is trying his best to adapt to modern life with his now Ranger friends. When he isn’t trying to figure out video games and cars, he keeps busy battling Sledge and his henchmen.
Yoshi is also a self professed Power Rangers and Super Sentai fanboy who was a fan of Kyoryuger.
Michael Taber as Riley:
Green Ranger (Matt’s younger brother). He’s quiet, confident, and disciplined. At only 18 to look 16 years-old, he’s a bit smaller than the other Rangers, but just as fierce. Riley grey up on a ranch, but didn’t fit in. Riley practiced his sword skills. Fencing is just one of the unique things about Riley, he doesn’t like to get dirty, he’s picky about what he eats, and he’s a whiz at logic games, like chess, checkers, and Rubik’s cube. Small in size but big on brains, Quinn is quiet, confident and disciplined. He’s equally dangerous with a sword or a puzzle game!
James Davies as Chase:
Black Ranger is a cool and laid-back 18 year-old. He wears the right clothes, listens to popular music. He’s very handsome and receives a lot of attention from the girls. He gets around by riding a skateboard, while sporting a hoodie and ear buds. He spends his free time diddling on a guitar. Chase is very forgetful and is always late, stopping to flirt with girls, or responding to texts. Chase was destined to slide by on his charm and good lucks. But given the opportunity to be a Power Ranger, he learns the value of pride and teamwork.
Chase is also the first main character in Power Rangers history that is from New Zealand, even though the series has shot there since Power Rangers Ninja Storm.
Camille Hyde as Shelby:
Pink Ranger is the rough-n-tumble 18 year-old tomboy who loves to get into the dirt. She’s strong-willed, stubborn, and direct, which makes dating a challenge…for the boy. She is clumsy and disinterested in all things that don’t involve dinosaurs or being a Ranger. She balances her though physicality with a sharp mind and a love for paleontology.
Aside from the Rangers, we have Claire Blackwelder as Kendall. The character bio from her doesn’t quite match up to what we’ve seen on screen, but it does provide some possible insight into the future of her character.
Purple Ranger (The Scientist) is a brilliant 18-21 year-old engineer whose discoveries have made her very rich. She is confident, direct, and rarely gets emotional. She has a serious demeanor and doesn’t make friends easily. Deep inside, she’s a bit lonely, and starts to learn the deeper meaning of friendship as she comes to respect and understand her Ranger family. She isn’t as forceful as a “commander,” but she’s more insistent than a friend.”
Davi Santos as Ivan:
Gold Ranger (The Knight) 900 years ago, Ivan was a valiant, 18-year old knight. He’s a very gentle, kind soul who values honesty and loyalty above all else. He wields his magnificent sword with legendary skill and doesn’t hesitate to use it for noble cause. He’s always an ace with a bow and arrow. Ivan behaves with great finesse and chivalry. He speaks with a BRITISH ACCENT, and uses odd, antique phrases, continually clashing with today’s culture.
Jarred Blakiston as Prince Philip III:
Graphite Ranger is from Zandar. He is an admirer of the Dino Charge Rangers and aspires to be one of them.
The cast breakdowns for this eason also included another character who hasn’t shown up as a Ranger just yet…
Matt: Gray Ranger (Ryan’s older brother).
At 18 years-old, he’s a cool and confident cowboy, complete with jeans, boots, and his favorite old hat. He’s warm and funny, with a charming wink. He grew up on a ranch and loves the outdoors. Matt is a bit old-school in his thinking. While he doesn’t quite understand Ryan, Matt’s sure that his job as an older brother is to protect his younger brother.
Now we know Ryan ended up being Riley, so is this the brother we briefly met in Episode 2? Only time will tell.
And check out this neat piece of info: “A main storyline for the season also centres on a visit to New Zealand and will feature Auckland landmarks for the first time.”
We’ve got a ton of details about the behind the scenes of Power Rangers Dino Charge on page 3…
Power Rangers Dino Charge Production
Judd Lynn serves as executive producer, seemingly replacing Jonathan Tzachor as show runner after his four year stint of Samurai through Power Rangers Super Megaforce. Judd worked on the show under the original run of Saban, including fan favorite seasons such as Power Rangers In Space and Power Rangers Time Force.
Noam Kaniel, music supervisor for Samurai through Super Megaforce is also returning.
Through various twitter posting James W. Bates, former writer for Samurai and Megaforce confirmed he returned to write one episode for Dino Charge. Former MMPR writer Mark Litton has also scripted several episodes. A new addition to the writing staff is Becca Barnes, a New Zealand native.
Power Rangers Dino Charge Trailers
An extended trailer has also been released (exclusively on Amazon) that shows a bit more of the Rangers, including the Red and Pink rangers revealing their Dino Chargers. We also see that several of the original Kyoryuger main villains will be utilized.
We also got our first official look at the new upgrade modes for the Rangers, along with a tease of Power Rangers Dino SuperCharge in 2016. These upgrades are American exclusive, never before seen in Japan and feature the teams “batteries” on their chest.
Watch it here:
Chip Lynn, producer for the series, also dropped some very subtle hints about what’s to come. “…a lot of the things you thought we missed, you’ll see we didn’t.” He even made the bold claim that, “When this season is done, you’re going to say they were some of the best episodes of Power Rangers EVER.” Since Judd Lynn worked on some of the best Power Rangers ever, I have hope.Lynn also addressed the long running question within the fandom, would Dino Charge see the return of any Mighty Morphin Power Rangers or Dino Thunder Rangers? He explained that they have enough Rangers this year and had enough returns last year in Super Megaforce. So don’t hold your breath on that one, fans!
Although who knows what could happen next season? Power Rangers Dino Super Charge is set to premiere next year! Learn more about that here.
