Icon-ryusoger.pngThis article is about a/an ally in Power Rangers Dino Fury.

"Our first day here, and you've already made a friend. I like her."
―Dr. Lani Akana[src]

"If you dare hurt my son, I will hunt you down and obliterate you and everything you've ever loved!"
―Dr. Lani Akana threatening Void Knight after finding out her son is the Blue Ranger.[src]

Dr. Lani Akana is an archaeologist and the mother of Ollie Akana.


Lani and Ollie were heading for Dinohenge when they split up, and the latter meets Amelia. Upon reaching the statues, Lani is surprised to see her son had made a friend already before they start to search around the statues before a small earthquake erupts. Not long after, they are called out by Park Warden Garcia for trespassing before having Lani come with him to file a report, and she complies.Tvicon.png TV STORY-Destination Dinohenge

After being released, she meets up with Ollie and Amelia, as well as Zayto, where they try to tell her and Carlos about the Sporix. Later, while Zayto and Amelia left for BuzzBlast, Ollie takes her aside to show her a scanner that Void Knight had dropped, hoping to use it and her drone to locate them easily.Tvicon.png TV STORY-Sporix Unleashed

Lani is later seen again, observing a mysterious storm. She would be present to witness the Gold Ranger's awakening. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Storm Surge

She would later be recruited by the Rangers to help foil Void Knight's plans, but she ends up getting captured. Zayto would later rescue her. She then tries to fight Void Knight, only to be easily defeated before using Zayto's Dino Dagger to damage the stasis pod. She is surprised to discover that her son was the Blue Ranger when Ollie was reluctantly de-morphed in front of her.Tvicon.png TV STORY-Void Trap


  • The name Lani means "sky" or "royalty" in Hawaiian.
  • While she doesn't have a direct counterpart in Ryusoulger, she is similar to Naohisa Tatsui, also an archaeologist whose studies got him involved with the Ryusoulgers. The two major differences are that Naohisa's daughter is not a Ryusoulger like Lani's son and Lani has (currently) only appeared in four episodes.
  • Lani Akana is similar to Commander Shaw as they are both the mothers to their series' respective Blue Ranger.
    • She is also similar to Mayor Daniels from the same series, as she discovered her son's secret identity near the end of their series' first season.
