Sir Ivan is a legendary knight of the small country of Zandar. Centuries ago in the year 1215 while accompanying Prince Colin, he came across the Gold Energem. He then encountered a hooded figure who attacked both Ivan and the prince, revealing itself to be the monster Fury. As Fury and Ivan crossed swords, the Gold Energem bonded with Ivan. As a last resort, Fury absorbed Ivan but lost the Gold Energem in the process. For centuries Ivan was trapped within the body of Fury as he searched for the Energems.
The Gold Ranger
- "Still think this stone is yours?!"
- ―Ivan after he transforms into the Dino Charge Gold Ranger for the first time.[src]
In present time, with Sledge and the Dino Charge Rangers in a race to find the Energems, Fury managed to acquire the Ptera Dino Charger, and with Wrench's aid acquired the technology to charge it using Ivan's essence, however, this only lasted for short periods. With Fury tapping more and more into Ivan, Ivan grew strong enough to separate himself from his captor - fully aware that he already watched the Power Rangers in action during his imprisonment, and so can he, to become the Gold Ranger. He attempts to return the Gold Energem to Phillip, Zandar's current prince, but he refuses it, acknowledging that Ivan was chosen by the Energem.
While he is aware of the power of the Gold Ranger and the Pterazord, he has yet to adjust to life among modern humans- something Koda can relate to. Unable to see the Rangers in battle, he dismisses them. Ivan later finds people who he thinks are of courage and invites them to join him in his quest. However, once these recruits see what they're up against in the Vivix and monsters, they quickly run away, leaving only the Rangers at Ivan's side.
Ivan takes a job as the Dino Bite Cafe waiter at the Amber Beach Dinosaur Museum as part of his new life.
While finding the culprit whose graffitied the Museum's walls and trucks, Ivan found his look-alike named Zach, who turns out to be none other than his descendant.
Going back home
When the Rangers return to the past to save Keeper and stop Sledge, Tyler manage to ambush Fury with a bomb into think he got five remaining Energems (Red, Purple, Graphite, Aqua and Silver) to kill him, thus undoing Ivan's fate from being captured by Fury in his time. Once all Sledge's army has been destroyed to the sun, both Ivan and Koda can now go back in their home time.
- "Spoken like true Rangers!"
- ―Ivan greeting the Beast Morphers Rangers.[src]
Ivan, alongside some other members of his team, traveled to the main dimension in order to find Keeper, there they fought some foot soldiers and met the Grid Battleforce Rangers. After Keeper got kidnaped by Evox's Army, the Dino Charge Rangers went to Grid Battleforce and explained the situation to the current team and both teams agreed to work together and rescue Keeper.
They soon accepted a bargain with Evox and went to an abandoned warehouse to trade Ryjack's collection for Keeper, but when Snide didn't follow up on the agreement both teams morphed and got ready to fight.
When the Beast Morphers Rangers left to fight a Gigadrone, Tyler called Shelby and Riley to fight Snide. Just when the team defeated Snide, the newly revived Sledge and his crew appeared. Ivan fought against his old rival Fury, but was defeated, and almost destroyed alongside his teammates if it weren't for the Grid Battleforce Rangers appearing at the last second, blasting Sledge's crew and managing to get away after rescuing Keeper. After making sure Keeper was safe and thank the current team, the Dino Charge Rangers departed to their home universe until the next time they meet.
Against Evox's Army
Energems. Four of the Grid Battleforce Rangers arrived but the villains still managed to steal four of the Energems, including the Gold Energem, and defeat both teams of Rangers. While 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 and decided to split themselves into two teams. Ivan 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, Ivan defeated some foot soldiers alongside Kimberly and Kira, and destroyed Robo-Roxy on his own. When Evox summoned his massive Chimerazord, Ivan 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.
When events set into motion by Lord Drakkon caused the timeline to split into pocket universe, each anchored on a powerset, the Dino Charge Rangers were further misaligned in the timeline. Lord Drakkon then attacked them. As evidenced by the appearance of the Dino Charge Gold Sentries, Ivan fell to Drakkon's forces, whom stripped him of his Morpher.
When the timeline is restored, so is Ivan.
Ivan is a very gentle, kind soul who values honesty and loyalty above all else. He wields his magnificent sword with legendary skill and doesn't hesitate to use it for a noble cause. He's also an ace with a bow and arrow. Ivan behaves with great finesse and chivalry. He speaks with a Medieval British accent, and uses odd, antique phrases, continually clashing with today's culture. A example is when he calls Tyler or Riley by the honorific "Sir," Shelby "My lady.", or both Poisandra and Curio as "Gargoyles".
Unlike the rest of the Dino Charge Rangers, Ivan's Morpher is not modeled after a pistol/handgun, but rather a crossbow, which he manages to use with precise aim in tandem with his martial arts abilities.
Ivan also shows a dramatic side to him as he always shows off his knight status via wearing a suit of armor and riding a horse.

- Ptera Bolt-Ivan could fire gold energy blasts from his Gold Ptera Morpher strong enough to destroy Vivix with single shots.
- Ptera Super Bolt-A stronger variant instead fired from the Gold Ptera Saber in the form of energy lightning strong enough to render Super Lord Arcanon, Screech and Conductro immobile temporarily.
- Lightning Final Strike-Ivan's signature attack and finisher where he swings around his Gold Ptera Saber, charging it with golden lightning in the process, before raising it overhead and swinging it straight down. This would launch forth a stream of yellow lightning bolts (forming the word "ZAAAAANDAR!" in the process) which would slam into and obliterate the enemy.
- Ptera Saber Final Strike-Ivan can rush forward through the air on energy wings, energize his Gold Ptera Saber with gold energy along the blade and zip through the enemies from all directions whilst slashing them with it. This was strong enough to destroy an entire army of Vivix and Spikeballs.
- Ptera Final Strike-A stronger variation used only in the episode "Forged Under Fire" to destroy Hunter where four of the Dino Charge Rangers combined Dino Morpher Blasts to form an energy circle. Ivan would then fly through it in his Ptera Saber Final Strike and then strike the enemy with enough force to kill them with a single hit rather than multiple.

Morph and Roll Call
Behind the Scenes
- Ivan is portrayed by Davi Santos. When Ivan and Riley switched bodies in Freaky Fightday, Ivan was portrayed by Michael Taber.
- As the Dino Charge Gold Ranger, his suit actor was Naoki Ofuji (大藤 直樹 Ōfuji Naoki) in Super Sentai footage from Kyoryuger.
- The Gold Ranger's American suit is not color matched to the Sentai version. In Kyoryuger the suit is a shiny gold, but in Dino Charge the suit is a flat light yellow. It makes it clear what footage of him is original and which is Sentai footage.
- Sir Ivan's civilian attire, specifically his long coat was custom made for the show. His actor, Davi Santos, kept the jacket after production wrapped and will often wear at convention appearances. Santos once again donned the jacket in Beast Morphers while reprising the role of Ivan.
- Ivan's home country of Zandar is named after Utsusemimaru's finishing move and weapon from Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger, the Serial Zyuden Sword Zandar Thunder.
- Utsusemimaru - Super Sentai counterpart in Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger. See comparison page.
- Tessai - Ivan's counterpart who somehow survived by his descendant in the present day.
