- ""Kick into Overdrive! Blue Ranger!""
Dax Lo is the Blue Overdrive Ranger and major protagonist of Power Rangers Operation Overdrive.
Dax was chosen by Andrew Hartford for his ability to fulfill incredible tricks, lack of height fear, depth, knowledge of dangerous places and skills of martial arts. An absolutely highly skilled film stuntman, Dax was unappreciated and ignored in his job; he tends to babble about his previous roles and compare events to films. He adores the jokes but does not like being left without credit for his work, and his dream prior to becoming a Ranger was getting a lead role he would be remembered for. He is the most enthusiastic of the Overdrive team, enjoying getting to be a real superhero. He used to have a girlfriend named Mira from which he saved her from one of her henchmen, before she was revealed to be the powerful, evil Miratrix. He still believes she harbors feelings for him. Dax has also shown that he understands his duties of protecting the world, but this hasn't lessened his dream of attaining a true acting career. Dax is the first to use the Transtek Armored vehicle, which he used against Miratrix, Kamdor and Moltor and their monsters.
At the end of the series, Dax declared that he had had enough of stunt acting, and had expressed a desire to direct instead.
Dax and the other Overdrive 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.
Dax is a show off at best. He has a rather annoying tendency to treat every battle and meeting as a stage performance, exaggerating his actions and facial expressions and acting often goofy and obstreperous amongst his friends and teammates. Despite this, he can be serious in battle, and can treat his enemies with the respect they deserve. He is loyal to his friends, and cares about them, standing by their side through thick and thin, and always willing to risk himself to help them.
- Super-Agility: Dax can jump great heights and at high speeds.This power is also incredibly useful in dodging attacks.

The Blue Overdrive Ranger Key is Dax’s personal Ranger Key. This key along with the majority of the Core Ranger Keys are seen lining the Command Center's interior walls. This key is mainly used by Noah Carver (Super Megaforce Blue) who uses it to fight as the Blue Overdrive Ranger. Although it has not been used, it has been seen in the Scanner app and the toyline.
