This article is about a/an ranger in Power Rangers Ninja Storm.

Waldo "Dustin" Brooks is the Yellow Wind Ranger of the Ninja Storm Rangers.


Dustin is the "comic book geek" of the Wind Rangers and was a fan of previous Rangers, who were considered urban legend by ninjas. He is somewhat naive and gullible but has a heart of gold. Dustin can also be described as a "dudebro."

He has extreme skills with motocross, and works at the bike store Storm Chargers.

In the beginning of the series, before becoming a Ranger, he was at the low end of the class at the Wind Ninja Academy. When Lothor captured the academy and its students, Dustin was of the three remaining students left.

Early on, his teammates questioned his dedication when he spent too much time with Blake and Hunter Bradley, who turned out to be the evil Thunder Rangers. Dustin proved himself worthy of being a Ranger again and again.

Dustin was happy when Blake and Hunter turned out to be allies and welcomed Cam to the team as the Green Samurai Ranger.

Dustin thought Marah, Lothor's evil niece was turning good and trusted her to help the team defeat Lothor. She ended up betraying him and Dustin felt used, though she seemed to truly develop feelings for the Yellow Ranger.

On one instance, Dustin switched placed with Sensei on accident. Luckily, it was temporary.

Dustin, along with Shane and Tori found out that they were destined to take place in an ultimate battle with Lothor. He used his Earth powers to expel Lothor to the Abyss of Evil (after Lothor took his Ranger powers). Dustin then graduated from the Wind Academy and stayed on as an instructor.

By the end of the series, Dustin has grown and matured a lot but his personality remains much the same.

Legacy of Power

The Wind 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. Legacy of Power

Thunder Storm

When Lothor broke out of the Abyss, Dustin temporarily became evil alongside his teammates. They battled the Dino Rangers but are set free by their comrades. The Ninja and Dino Rangers then team up to battle Lothor and Mesogog's combined forces, with Dustin teaming up with the Blue Dino Ranger Ethan James. Afterwards, the Wind Rangers lose their powers for good, leaving things to the next generation. Thunder Storm

Dustin and the other Ninja 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. Legendary Battle

Ninja Powers

Due to their Ninja training, The Wind rangers have several special powers common to ninjas, them being:

  • Superhuman Speed: Due to their Ninja training, Dustin and his teammates can move faster than the eye can see, often used in high speed rush attacks.
  • Enhanced Strength: When Sensei inhabited Dustin's body, he demonstrated that Dustin had physical strength vastly superior to that of Shane, able to send a monster flying with a single blow.
  • Enhanced Agility: Dustin and his team mates can leap higher than an average person.
  • Stealth: Dustin and his team mates can evade detection by normal persons.
  • Mind Block: Dustin and his team mates can focus his inner energies to resist mental attacks and manipulation.

Behind The Scenes



  • Dustin is the second male Yellow Ranger in the Power Rangers series, but is the first human male Yellow Ranger. The first male Yellow Ranger was Tideus (Yellow Alien Ranger).
    • He is also the first Yellow Ranger to match his Sentai counterpart's gender since Ashley Hammond; the previous four were males in Sentai and female in Power Rangers.
  • Tori reveals in "Beauty and the Beach" that Dustin's real name is Waldo.
  • In "Shimazu Returns", it is revealed that Dustin plays the saxophone.
  • His father briefly appears in the episode Sensei Switcheroo and it is revealed that he and Dustin enjoy riding together.
  • Dustin first hinted at the idea of a Green Ranger being in the series in Episode 11 when he said, "Maybe we can trade him in for a new Ranger. Maybe a green one."
  • Dustin's airheadedness contrasts with his Sentai counterpart, Kouta Bitou who was more mature and a strict planner. If anything, Dustin is similar to Shane's counterpart, Yousuke Shiina.
  • In the episode "Eye of the Storm", Dustin is shown to be afraid of falling from great heights.
