Riley Griffin is the Dino Charge Green Ranger of the Dino Charge Rangers. He is also referred to as Green Ranger and, in roll calls, as Velociraptor Power Ranger Green.

A 17 year old boy (18 by No Matter How You Slice It) who grew up on a ranch with his older brother Matt Griffin and his mother, he accidentally finds the Green Energem after an encounter with Fury.

Character History

Dino Charge

While working on a work assigned by his brother, his pet dog detected something and brought him to a stone. At that time, a wandering Fury spotted the dog and tried to kill him out of annoyance until Riley took a nearby pipe and attacked Fury. The pipe hit the rock and revealed a green Energem where it turned the pipe into a Dino Saber, allowing Riley to gain the upper hand until Fury retreated.

He departed from his farm to the Amber Beach Museum, with his scooter broke in the middle of the journey and offered a ride by Shelby Watkins and Tyler Navarro in his car. They even save a man from his car via their Energems' powers followed by the discovery of an underground lab below the Amber Beach Dinosaur Museum which led them to become Power Rangers.

After their confrontation with Iceage, Riley works in the Museum, as well as a Dino Bite Cafe waiter while having the mantle to become the Green Ranger. Past, Present and Fusion

Riley and Shelby arrive to fight Snide.

It's unknown why Riley and Shelby didn't come to the main dimension in order to find Keeper alongside their team, but when the Beast Morphers Rangers left to fight a Gigadrone, and the Dino Charge Rangers were preparing to fight Snide, Tyler called Shelby and Riley to fight alongside them. Just when the team defeated Snide, the newly revived Sledge and his crew appeared. Riley fight againt Poisandra, but was defeated, and almost destroyed alongside his teamates if it weren't for the Beast Morphers Rangers appearing at the last second, blasting Sledge's crew and managing to get away after rescuing Keeper. Riley and Shelby came back to their dimension off-screen. Finders Keepers

Days after their previous adventure, Goldar Maximus and Snide were attacking the Dino Charge Rangers in their dimension and were after their Energems. Four of the Beast Morphers Rangers arrived but the villains still managed to steal four of the Energems and defeat both teams of Rangers, while Riley and Shelby retained their powers. When both teams were hiding and discussing the villains' plans of making an evil Zord, Jason and Devon arrived, gave the team Morphers and Morph-X powered Dino Chargers to the other four Dino Charge Rangers and decided to split themselves into two teams.

Riley and his team followed Jason on a frontal assault while the Beast Morphers team attacked from behind. When Goldar Maximus and the rest of Evox's army arrived, Jason summoned his old Mighty Morphin' teammates and the Dino Rangers to defeat the army in a big fight.

During the battle, Riley defeated some foot soldiers alongside the Mighty Morphin Yellow Ranger. When Evox summoned his massive Chimerazord, Riley and his team joined in summoning the Dino Charge Megazord and aiding in its defeat. With Evox on the run again, the teams departed and said goodbye to the Dino Charge Rangers.Grid Connection


Riley is quiet, confident and disciplined. At only 17 years old (later 18 years old), he's a bit younger than the other Rangers, but just as fierce. Riley grew up on a ranch, but didn't fit in. There, he practiced his sword skills. Fencing is just one of the unique things about Riley; in addition, he doesn't like to get dirty, he's picky about what he eats, and he's a whiz at anything involving logic, like chess, checkers, and almost any sort of puzzle.

Behind the Scenes

  • Early casting sides listed his name as "Ryan". This was changed to Quinn, the name used on one of his toys, possibly because this name was shared with Ryan Mitchell, the Titanium Ranger from Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue. It was then changed again, for unknown reasons, to Riley.
  • When morphed, Riley was portrayed by suit actor Kosuke Asai (浅井 宏輔 Asai Kōsuke) in footage from Kyoryuger.


  • Riley is portrayed by Michael Taber, who happens to have been a fan of Power Rangers since he was young. Taber provided Riley's voice for his appearances in Beast Morphers, as he was preoccupied with work and was unable to reprise the role of Riley on-screen.
    • In December 2020, Michael Taber stated that he portrayed Riley as gay, and with a crush on fellow Ranger Chase.[1]


  • Riley is the first Green Ranger on a dinosaur-themed team to be part of the core team. (This would be repeated by Izzy in Dino Fury).
  • Riley is similar to Noah Carver from the previous season, in which they are both smart and serious, contrasting to his Sentai counterpart Souji Rippukan, who is a loner.
  • Michael Taber, the actor who plays Riley, said in his social networks that his character's sexual orientation is homosexual, although this is not confirmed by either Saban or Hasbro.
  • In some bios, they say Riley lives on a ranch in Montana. [2]
  • Riley is the first Green Ranger to serve on a team without a Yellow Ranger. He is later succeeded by Izzy in Dino Fury.
  • Riley officially turned 18 years old in No Matter How You Slice It.
  • Riley is the only Dino Charge Ranger out of the main 6 who hasn't used the Dino Super Drive Saber.
  • Riley and Ivan bonded to their Energems in similar ways, as their Energems used their weapons to bond with them. They were also both fighting Fury.
    • Gladly even when their bodies temporarily swap with each other, their swordsmanships are still intact.
  • Riley is the first Ranger with a Velociraptor motif.
