|This article is about a/an ranger in Power Rangers Wild Force.|
Danny's motto is "Never give up" (mentioned several times during the series). Most times, Max Cooper, the Blue Shark Ranger, would have to remind him what that motto is whenever he feels like giving up. He works at a flower shop, where he is very passionate about the flowers. Danny was the fourth Ranger to be recruited and had served as a Ranger for two months prior to Cole joining the team. Danny and Max are best friends and Max has always seen Danny as an older brother figure. As such, Danny has always had Max's back on anything.
Danny is the strongest Wild Force Ranger physically, but deep inside is a peaceful man, with a sweet side and some childlike 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 does, but he is too shy to tell her, and gets (even more) clumsy when she is near by. Eventually, she found out that he was the Black Ranger, but decided that he needed to focus on his mission, and turned Kendall down.
It should be noted that 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, such as when it told him that it was sending 'friends' to help (The Rhino and Armadillo Wild Zords) or confirming that it was still able to fight after virtually all other Zords had been badly injured by the powerful Locomotive Org. Whether he can talk to anyone else's zords remains unknown.
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.
Legacy of Power
The Wild Force Rangers were featured in a chronicle of Power Ranger history compiled by Tommy Oliver shortly after he formed the Dino Rangers, which was found by the nascent Ranger team in the Dino Lab.
Danny and the other Wild Force Rangers returned as part of the army of Legendary Rangers that helped the Mega Rangers defeat the Armada once and for all, fighting in a huge battle against hundreds of X Borgs and dozens of Bruisers.

Behind The Scenes
- Danny is played by Jack Guzman. In Super Sentai footage for Gaoranger, his suit actor is Hideaki Kusaka (日下 秀昭 Kusaka Hideaki). His suit actor in the US footage is Makoto Arakawa.
- Although there is no clear reference to Danny's age, it is believed that he is 22 years old.
- In the series Power Rangers: S.P.D., set 20 years in the future, the character of Elizabeth Delgado (AKA "Z") has the same surname as Danny, although no relationship was ever established between the two, and is probably coincidental.
- In the roll call, he calls himself the Iron Bison, just like his Super Sentai counterpart Soutarou.
- He is a playable character in Power Rangers Legacy Wars.
- In the video game for the Game Boy Advance, Danny is the only playable Ranger who does not use his signature weapon. His special attack is instead picking up and throwing the nearest enemy, rather than using the Black Bison Axe.
- Danny is the first Black Ranger to be a part of the core team since Carlos Vallerte of Power Rangers in Space.
- When it comes to Ranger equipment, Danny has a lot in common with the MMPR Black Rangers. Each of them uses an axe as a weapon, they all have Zords that form two limbs plus a little extra, the Bison and Frog Zords make up the legs and lower torso of their respective Megazords, the Mastodon Zord is the arms and back of the Dino Megazord and the Lion Thunderzord forms the arms, chest and head of the Thunder Megazord.
