The Power Rangers franchise has astounded so many by being able to survive longer than most TV shows deserve to. It’s undergone three networks and no less than a dozen incarnations but remained a standout of kids’ TV and a huge toy merchandise mover. Even the producers had no idea what they were kicking off when the show was created and have managed to handle the transformations well over the years. There has been talk of complications behind the scenes and the transfer of power from Saban to Disney to Nickelodeon but it still has been able to create some pretty good shows that maintain the franchise.
Of course, a key reason for its popularity has been the show’s ability to cast some very attractive ladies. We’ve noted a few before but with two decades of programming, it should be no surprise the franchise has given us far, far more. Obviously, Rangers are important but there are also slews of sexy villainesses as well as the supporting characters, each bringing their own charm, sex appeal and fantastic drive to make their characters stand out. Here are 20 more of the hottest ladies this franchise has given us and why it remains so beloved and popular after all these years and likely for many more.
20. Mia – Samurai
Erika Fong was quite the looker for the first new Rangers series under the Nick label. The Pink Ranger, Mia was a great fighter who enjoyed action with her dark hair flowing behind her and not bad a singer either. The running gag of her horrible cooking proved she wasn’t perfect but her friendship with Emily was quite good and made her a nice standout. Thanks to these two, the franchise got itself going once more and Mia proving herself worthy of hot Pink Rangers of the past although calling her “girly” doesn’t make her happy.
19. Divatox – Turbo
It took two actresses to bring this wild villainess to life. Hillary Shepherd Turner played her in the Turbo movie, showcasing cleavage and leg in her wild costume and eating up the scenery with obvious joy. Turner was pregnant in filming so for the first half of the series, Carol Hoyt took on the role, a bit colder and methodical but still quite alluring and enjoying flaunting her bad side while ranting on being surrounded by total morons. Turner would return to play the role again as a wild diva who still manages to nearly take the Rangers down. No matter who was under the mask, Divatox ranks among the best bad gals of the franchise who was always a hoot to watch.
18. Udonna – Mystic Force
You don’t usually equate Power Rangers with hot mommas but Udonna is an exception. The White Mystic Ranger at the start of the series, she loses her staff and settles into teaching the others and doing it well. With lush red hair and a white outfit that enhances her form, she was quite attractive, doting and yet a capable warrior as well as source for wise advice. She would learn she was the mother of Ranger Nick and reunite with her husband, regaining her powers and proving herself as fantastic a warrior as a teacher. Sadly, actress Peta Rutter passed away from a brain tumor in 2010 but gave us a fantastic character to always remember her by.
17. Kendall – Dino Charge
For most of the first season of the latest series, Kendall is the brains of the Rangers operation, the scientist who helps them with their tech and in the field. Claire Blackwelder made her stand out as the glasses do nothing to hide her terrific beauty, able to go around in a suit like it’s a designer dress and hold her own in a fight. She ended up becoming the Purple Ranger but still enjoys a more strict dress style, an ice queen cooling off to become a team player and fighter in her own right. Smart girls are sexy to be sure and Kendall had that going long before she fitted the spandex quite well.
16. Kapri – Ninja Storm
She and sister Marah spend the majority of the season being called a disgrace to the name of evil, a pair of morons who bumble around. Kapri is a bit meaner and does enjoy a fight better with Katrina Browne showcasing the tight armored suit that enhanced her curves, pink hair in ponytails and quite good in a fight with her sword. It turns out she and Marah were actually quite smart and ruthless and just acting the fools only to get betrayed by their uncle. They showed up in ninja training with Kapri in blonde hair and showing herself a stylish gal no matter which side she was in.
15. Kat Manx – SPD
Her name is pretty literal as she hails from a feline race which means besides her lush dark hair, she has pointed ears, a feral nose and fangs and is 147 Earth years old. Yet she looks utterly beautiful despite all that, a top-notch scientist who helps the Rangers out and field-testing their gear. A memorable episode had her using a one-time morpher to become a Ranger herself and as slinky in the outfit as you can imagine showing off agile moves. Michelle Langstone was able to put up with the makeup to make Kat a very sexy one-time Ranger with nine lives of pure heat.
14. Nadira – Time Force
For the most part, she came off as a rather annoying bimbo, the daughter of villain Rasnik who enjoyed flaunting herself in a white outfit that showed off her mid-riff and pink hair. She was smart enough to break her dad out of jail and back in time and is fascinated by the 21st century’s wealth, soon organizing “shopping trips” to rob places. Kate Sheldon did show some layers as Nadira could be effective in a fight and her bratty attitude funny to watch. She was soon redeemed to be a force for good and yet still quite hot to show how the comic relief can be the best parts of a Rangers show.
13. Lauren – Samurai
When Red Ranger Jayden lost his powers, his teammates were amazed when an attractive blonde was able to take up the mantle as the Red Ranger. Lauren was Jayden’s older sister and the true heir to the powers, kept hidden for her safety. Taking up leadership, she was a strong woman but more open and relatable to the rest of the team and a nice sense of humor too. Kimberley Crossman looked great with her blonde hair in a ponytail, able to make a dark outfit look very appealing and still working well with the rest. She took a break to learn more of her powers before returning and showed how well a sexy gal can fill the Red Ranger outfit better than any guy.
12. Katie – Time Force
The Yellow Ranger of the team had super-strength, feeling the ability to lift a car over her head wasn’t that huge a deal and could go overboard with her bear hugs. Played by Deborah Estelle Philips, she was a lot more open with her feelings than leader Jen, looking quite lovely with her dark hair and skin and the fact she was as tall as any of the guys added to her nature. She preferred jeans and a jacket over designer outfits but filled her uniform out very well and fun to see fighting the baddies. A great example of the tough but hot ladies of the Rangers no matter the time period.
11. Hayley – Dino Thunder
At first, she appears to be the owner of the local cyber-café, an attractive redhead but just a side character. It turns out she’s the genius behind all the Rangers’ tech and becoming a major aide to them. She’s incredibly smart with a nice sense of humor and even dressed in regular clothes, has a very good body to win folks over and be a terrific mane of red hair. Ismay Johnston was a good choice for the part to help the Rangers out and while she didn’t get into the field much, she reminded you how hot redheads are, especially for the Rangers.
10. Dana – Lightspeed Rescue
The daughter of the Captain who’s in charge of the team, this lovely blonde was a nurse and had a good air of authority and caring. Alison Macinnis had a modeling past and thus it made sense that one episode had Dana pulled into becoming a model and gorgeous but decided being the Pink Ranger was more important. Her blouses and skirts were always a highlight as Dana was tougher than she looked and returned still in top form for a MegaForce crossover. She may look “girly” but definitely a Pink Ranger to admire.
9. Dr. Angela Fairweather – Lightspeed Rescue
Whoever said “guys don’t make passes at girls with glasses” never met Angela. This tall and gorgeous brunette was notable for her lab coat over a dress that showed off legs in pantyhose and not afraid of a little cleavage too. Monica Louwerens was a former Canadian beauty queen and thus well suited for the part, tough in her own way as she helped the Rangers out with their tech. She and Green Ranger Joel flirt a lot and eventually are married to show how the “geek girl” can often outdo the sexy ladies around her and guys do go the woman with some smarts.
8. Emma – Mega Force
This Pink Ranger was a lover of nature and photographers as well as a great singer and bike rider. All that came together with the lovely beauty of Christina Masterson, going around in pink short shorts and jean jacket, dark hair framing her seemingly perfect features and a lovely smile to boot. She was great in a fight with her air powers and helping the team out and getting along very well with best friend Gia. As part of the celebratory 20th season of the show, Emma was a great way to pay tribute to the hot Rangers of the past and pave the way to the future.
7. Ronny – Operation Overdrive
An ace race car driver, Ronny was recruited to join this team and soon found herself gaining the power of super-speed. She loves the thrill and rush of adventurers, throwing herself into them wonderfully and Caitlin Murphy showcased her love of driving the Ranger vehicles and often whooping it up in their fights. Her competitive nature can rub her teammates the wrong way sometimes but it also drives her on and this feisty brunette certainly runs up the sexy factor for Yellow Rangers majorly.
6. Madison – Mystic Force
She openly admits she’s the opposite of sister and Pink Ranger Vida, “the one with the common sense.” She’s just as attractive, however, with long black hair and a bright smile, a would-be filmmaker who may be shy but quite friendly. Her power over water is used well and Madison is great showcasing her abilities to their fullest and while not as outgoing as others, her lovely charm wins you over well. Melanie Vallejo was fun to watch in making Madison a true magical beauty.
5. Trakeena – Lost Galaxy
Amy Miller had one of the best villainess arcs of any of the Rangers series. At first appearing a spoiled brat, Trakeena soon improves herself to become a top warrior and general, taking over when her father is killed and becoming more ruthless than he ever was. Her tight blue armor fits her very well and her wicked smirks always terrific to enhance things. One episode had her taking on a human form and looking utterly gorgeous and while she was later mutated, it still helped her stand out. Overall, she was one of the best of the bad girls and Miller made her one sexy bug.
4. Kelsey – Lightspeed Rescue
From the start, this Yellow Ranger showed her athletic abilities, climbing a mountain when she was recruited and also proved herself an able runner, roller-blader and more. Sasha Williams enjoyed wearing mostly yellow and black workout outfits that enhanced her toned figure, curly dark hair in a ponytail and a bright smile to boot. A surprise was learning she came from a wealthy family but preferred being more down to earth and could often be seen with headphones around her neck. She returned in a crossover with Time Force and in Mega Force, still looking hot and how a jock gal can still be sexy.
3. Emily – Samurai
She may look like a typical blonde but this lady can easily kick your butt. The backstory is that her sister was to be the Yellow Ranger but when she came down with a disease, Emily stepped in and did her best to live up to the example. Brittany Anne Pirtle was shown very well with a fondness for short shorts and her lush blonde hair flowing in a fight. Confident and with a musical inclination, she brought a nice beauty to the role that doesn’t take away from her “girl next door” type hotness.
2. Elsa – Dino Thunder
While the hints were there from the start, it took a while to confirm that Elsa, the twisted henchwoman for villain Mesegog, was actually Principal Randall, the even colder boss of the local high school. In either case, Miriama Smith looked fantastic in the part as Randall rocked business suits and glasses with an icy attitude. As Elsa, she was clad in revealing black dresses and showing off nicely to get a bit more hammy. While she had a redemptive ending, she was one of the sexiest of the bad girls of Ranger lore and winning you over quite nicely to make this one of the better seasons of the show.
1. Z – SPD
The first time we see Elizabeth Delgado, she’s a street thief with her partner Jack, fighting her future teammates and showing off her ability to duplicate herself. A too-rare Latina Ranger, she was a fun gal with a snarky sense of humor, dark hair framing her attractive face and great in a fight. Monica May was top-notch in the role to help the show out and even worked her dance experience into the part at times, leading to a Yellow Ranger who was quite the looker and the sassy attitude to back it up.
