Power Rangers Wild Force, often abbreviated as "PRWF", was the tenth incarnation of the Power Rangers series, based on Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger.

Wild Force, like Time Force, is very faithful to its Sentai counterpart, with nearly the exact same plot. It's also the first season to have the exact same morphing sequence as its Sentai counterpart.

Power Rangers Wild Force takes place in 2002, continuing the tradition of having the incarnation taking place the year it was released. The first part of the series was originally broadcast on the Fox Kids children's television block, but was later moved to the ABC Kids children's television block in mid-season following the buyout of the Power Rangers franchise by Disney. Wild Force was dubbed in South Korea as Power Force Rangers (파워포스레인저 Pawa Poseu Leinjeo).

Wild Force celebrated 10 years of Power Rangers, while Gaoranger celebrated 25 years of Super Sentai.


The series follows the adventure of Cole Evans, who had been staying with a tribe for many years, as he tries to find his destiny in the fictitious town of Turtle Cove. He encounters the Animarium, a place that many believed to be a fairy tale. He joins four others who had a common path to become the new leader of the Wild Force Power Rangers.

The Power Rangers use their powers to defeat the forces of the Orgs, led by one Master Org. As Cole was fond of animals, he was shocked to discover that the Orgs were heartless creatures. As the series continues, he finds the truth about his real parents: his parents, Richard and Elizabeth Evans, were professors at Turtle Cove University, along with a family friend, Viktor Adler. When they were sent to the jungle for research, they discover the remains of the original Master Org, in which a jealous Adler consumes in order to exact revenge on Richard, who had proposed to Elizabeth before he could. However, Adler goes insane, and kills both Richard and Elizabeth. For a while, their newborn son, Cole, was also presumed dead.

The annual team-up episodes saw the Wild Force Rangers team up with the Time Force Rangers in order to stop three mutant Orgs (the Mut-Orgs) from polluting the Earth. It also featured the first time when a former villain teamed up with the Rangers to face the enemy. These episodes are special as it contained numerous references to various longtime fans of Power Rangers. Fans generally consider this teamup one of the best, due to the fact that the episode was written by a member of the fandom who was later hired to write for Wild Force, and the fact that the teamup brought closure to several plotholes in Time Force.

In addition to the annual team-up episodes, Power Rangers: Wild Force also had a special episode commemorating it as the tenth incarnation by having Cole team up with the nine Red Rangers before him[1] in order to defeat the Machine Empire one final time. This was known as Forever Red.

VHS/DVD Releases



  • Power Rangers Wild Force (Complete Season) [German RC2]
  • The Best of the Power Rangers: The Ultimate Rangers
    • Forever Red
  • Power Rangers Seasons 8-12 (Lightspeed Rescue to Dino Thunder)
  • Power Rangers Legacy: The First 20 Seasons (MMPR through Megaforce)
  • Power Rangers Wild Force: The Complete Series (Shout! Factory)


  • This season aired concurrent with the Super Sentai series Ninpu Sentai Hurricaneger, which became Power Rangers Ninja Storm.
  • This is the first season where the ranger's HQ is not an indoor place.
  • Wild Force was the first season to have a narrator like its Sentai counterpart.
  • This is the first Ranger Team to have both Yellow and White female Rangers.
  • Wild Force, along with Operation Overdrive, are the only seasons where none of the cast members have reprised their roles. Although the Wild Force and Operation Overdrive teams do appear in the Super Megaforce Legendary Battle, they stay morphed throughout this appearance.
  • Wild Force is the first Power Rangers series where the Rangers are shown to already be operating, without a Red Ranger, before the start of the show.
  • Wild Force is the first season to show the zords in full CGI, not only in their presentations, but in the majority of scenes prior to their combination into the Megazord (although physical props were occasionally used for close-up shots).
  • The first Wild Force promo actually used several clips from the Gaoranger intro. At one point, the faces of all 5 of the main Gaorangers as they transform can be seen. In addition, in the first Wild Force promo (the one that aired after Time Force ended), the full faces of 4 of the Japanese actors from Gaoranger, as they begin to transform, can be seen.
  • The morph sequence in this season is lifted from Gaoranger but with the Rangers' heads pasted over their Sentai counterparts.
  • This is the first season since Mighty Morphin Alien Rangers to feature the Red, Blue, Black, Yellow and White main team formation.
  • This was the first regular Power Rangers series not to feature a Pink Ranger as well as the first series since Mighty Morphin Alien Rangers not to have one, and the first since In Space not to feature a Green Ranger.
  • This is the first season of Power Rangers since In Space to feature a Black Ranger, and the first since the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (and their alien counterparts) to feature a White Ranger.
  • The series was unique in the fact that the villains are called 'Orgs', much like in Gaoranger. Even the monsters the Power Rangers had to defeat mostly had no name changes in the transition.
  • Wild Force has the distinction of featuring the oldest known Power Ranger (Merrick was over 3,000 years old at the time of his release).
    • This record was later broken by Dino Charge with Koda being 100,000 years old.
  • This season holds the record of the highest number of Zords featured: 22.
    • Max is the only Ranger in this season not to have 3 Zords, only possessing 2.
  • This series also has the current record for Power Ranger appearances from previous seasons, at 13. The first were the 6 Time Force Rangers, then the 7 Red rangers in "Forever Red".
  • Although Master Org is a Power Rangers-exclusive villain, the costume used for him was recycled from the Gorma Emperor XV, who is the main villain in Gosei Sentai Dairanger. The concept of Viktor Adler recalls Hideyo Kageyama AKA Doctor Man who serves as the main villain from the 1984 Series Choudenshi Bioman who was first human before becoming the main villain. Ironically, Doctor Man and The Gorma Emperor are both played by the late Japanese actor Munemaru Kouda.
  • This series gave the brief return of the comedy duo Bulk and Skull in "Forever Red", and was the last series to feature the two until Bulk's return in Samurai and Skull's return when he came to pick up Spike at the end of Super Samurai.
  • This was the last Power Rangers Series to be produced by MMPR Productions, and the first season to be developed under ownership of Disney and not Saban. Saban only did the pre-production, when the shooting began, Disney had already acquired the franchise.
  • This is also the last season to have the "Next Time" segment after each episode and the last season to have two females in the main team until Power Rangers S.P.D.
  • The Time Force-Wild Force team-up was the first made-for-Power Rangers team-up since there has never been a Gaoranger vs. Timeranger.
  • This is the first season to show realistic blood when Zen-Aku's left hand was cut.
  • "Forever Red" was the first episode to commemorate the anniversary of the Power Rangers franchise. This would repeat in Dino Thunder with "Legacy of Power", Operation Overdrive with "Once a Ranger", Super Megaforce with "Legendary Battle" and Super Ninja Steel with "Dimensions in Danger".
  • This is the first season since Mighty Morphin Power Rangers to not use wrist Morphers. They use cell phone-like Morphers instead.
  • This was the final series to be aired on Fox Kids. Partway through Wild Force's run, it was moved to ABC Kids.
  • This was the last season to using cold opening sequences until Power Rangers Samurai nine years later.
  • This is the first Power Rangers series not to have a team-up with a future generation of Power Rangers, as the Wild Force Rangers are permanently disbanded at the end of the series, though the corresponding Gaorangers did have a team-up episode with the Hurricanegers, the Ninja Storm counterparts. This may be due to the fact that production moved to New Zealand after Wild Force ended.
  • This is the first incarnation of Power Rangers since In Space not to have the rangers' base of operations destroyed in the finale, and the first of all incarnations not to have the rangers' base of operations destroyed at all (the Power Chamber in Zeo was destroyed at the end of Turbo, and the Astro Megaship from In Space was destroyed at the end of Lost Galaxy).
  • Unlike Gaoranger, the Wild Force Rangers notably referred to each other by name instead of color for the entire series, although Gaoranger eventually did this after they formally introduced themselves in the series finale which was carried on to Ninpuu Sentai Hurricaneger vs. Gaoranger.
  • The season is mentioned in Hikonin Sentai Akibaranger Season 2: Ep. 5: Delusional Imports, where Gaoranger is referred to as a blatant copy of it (history having been changed so that Sentai adapts PR instead of the other way around). Wild Force is indeed widely considered to be one of the seasons most like its source material.
  • Princess Shayla was recast after filming had started. She was originally to be played by Natasha Allas.[2]
  • Ricardo Medina, Jr. would later reappear during Power Rangers Samurai & Power Rangers Super Samurai as Deker.
  • The Animaria would later reappear during Power Rangers Super Megaforce's "A Lion's Alliance".
  • Wild Force is the last Power Ranger show to gender swap the Yellow Ranger as the yellow ranger later on would be the same gender as their Sentai counterparts.
  • Wild Force is the only season of Power Rangers to be associated with two different eras: the Post-Zordon Era and the Disney Era. It's considered part of the Post-Zordon Era as it had the same production team as the previous nine seasons did. However, it's also part of the Disney Era, as by the time it began airing, Disney had already acquired the rights from Saban.
  • Wild Force is the first anniversary season in the Disney era.
  • Wild Force is the final season to be filmed in Los Angeles, California.
