Trent Fernandez-Mercer is a Reefside High School student and the White Dino Ranger of the Dino Rangers. Retroactively, he is also referred to as the Dino Thunder White Ranger or White Dino Thunder Ranger, though these are in reference to the show, as opposed to proper labels.
Initially, Trent served as the main antagonist of the three-parter "White Thunder", and from then on as a recurring major antagonist until Mesogog's spell over him was broken.
Trent Fernandez was born to unnamed parents in the Fernandez family. His parents were archaeologists who were friends with the multi-billionaire paleontologist and scientist Dr. Anton Mercer. However during a dig, his parents were killed in a cave-in, which resulted in Anton adopting Trent. He now considers Mercer his father but kept his surname, although he sometimes uses the name Trent Mercer. According to Mercer, he was designated as Trent's godfather.
Trent later began attending Reefside High while working part-time at Hayley's Cyberspace Café. Trent has a hobby of drawing, though he keeps this a secret from his father since he "is in no way supportive of his artistic endeavors" as he disapproves of both, trying to encourage Trent to move on to activities more suitable for a Mercer.
Discovering the White Dino Gem
After uncovering an Invisiportal in his father's office, Trent was transported into the lair of the evil Mesogog, where he came in contact with the White Dino Gem, which transformed him into the White Ranger. However, the Gem had a mind of its own, due to Mesogog and Elsa's reconstruction of its powers, transforming Trent deliberately whenever it wants.
The White Ranger had the ability to Camouflage, Super Speed, and Super Dino Mode. Besides this, he is rarely seen using any of his abilities. White Ranger has control over the Dragozord and later over the Stegozord, who can combine to form the Dino Stegazord. His arsenal includes the Drago Morpher, White Drago Sword, and Dino ATV.
At first, the White Ranger worked as a loner, doing whatever he wanted with no one's help until he partnered with Mesogog'. When he was suspected of being a traitor, Trent was to be eliminated by the Life Extractor. During the draining process, Mesogog turned back into Anton Mercer who moved the device away, causing the energy to reflect off of things in the lab and land back into the Morpher with an explosion causing the evil in the Dino Gem to be destroyed yet leaving the White Ranger power still active. Trent helped the other Dino Rangers, even with them not trusting him at first, per his father's request. He became the fourth Dino Ranger to unlock the Super Dino Mode during a fight with the Copyotter. He proved his true allegiance as Zeltrax was about to kill Tommy, Trent saved his life.
After this the other Rangers decided to trust Trent. He then worked with the other Rangers, having to battle his evil clone that Zeltrax created along with the White Terrorsaurus. The clone was later destroyed in a battle with the White Ranger.
Trent kept his father's secret from the other Dino Rangers which eventually led to them mistrusting him again when they found out. He gained their trust back after telling them why he kept it from him and after he saved Conner from a monster.
Trent spied on Mesogog only to learn that he had split himself from Dr. Mercer. With the revelation of this, the Rangers sped up their plans to destroy Mesogog's lab. Trent made a deal with Mesogog that if he gave him the Dino Gems, he would release his father. He told the other Rangers that if he gave him the Gems, he could open up an Invisiportal for them so that they could destroy his lab. The plan worked out exactly as planned and Trent saved his father.
Trent later lost his powers as the White Ranger due to the final battle with Mesogog. Following the battle, Trent is revealed to be going to art school in the fall and his father is perfectly happy with it.
Trent is seen briefly in an archive footage when Kat shows and relate the adventures of the the Dino Rangers to S.P.D. Rangers. TV STORY-History.
At some point in 2004 after Conner receives his Battlizer, Gruumm made his temporal trip from the wormhole. At Reefside High, Trent was quietly drawing while he and Kira listening about Ethan's video game until Conner joins the conversation. When he, Kira, Ethan and Conner witness a spaceship hovering over the school.
Trent and the other Dino Rangers go into the woods talking about the strange Space Ship that appears in the sky until Zeltrax with some Tyrannodrones interrupts the conversation, the four Dino Rangers prepare to fight against him. However, Trent like the other Dino Rangers witness that Gruumm's Space Ship transports Zeltrax away in the ship, walking in the woods with more questions about what happened with Zeltrax after he is transported in the Space Ship until they see another ship, later meeting Jack, Z and Bridge. Trent listening about the mission of the S.P.D. Rangers came to defeat Emperor Gruumm, when they detected Troobian energy in Reefside, Trent and the other Dino Rangers decided to join them due to that Zeltax also joins forces with Gruumm, implying that it is also his and their fight.
Meeting again with Jack and Bridge, immediately Trent and the other Rangers sees the fight with Tommy against Zeltrax. However, an army of Tyrannodrones and Krybots appear before them, led by a Vine Monster, a Green Monster and a Spotty-Eyed Monster, everyone morphed into their Ranger forms and fight against the monster army. Fortunately reinforcements meaning more Rangers like Sam, Syd, Sky, and Doggie appear in the battle but are surrounded by Krybots and Tyrannodrones. Despite not being too many, the Rangers decide not to give up and fight.
Trent teamed up with Sam the Omega Ranger, Trent making a coordinate attack with Sam against several monsters, combining his high speed attacks and Sam's Omega Morpher Electro Mode attack as a result destroying a great number of Krybots and Tyrannodrones.

At first Trent was a shy, timid, and gloomy young man. He was a good friend of the Rangers (not knowing about their identities). Trent possessed a tragic past, as he lost his biological parents when he was a child and was adopted by Anton Mercer. Trent genuinely loved Anton as his father, even though he was his non-biological father. Trent was a skilled student and he possessed a creative and artistic nature. He enjoyed spending all his free time painting different fantastic creatures. However his father heavily didn't approve it. He was shown to be good friends with Hayley, loyal to her as a waiter. Trent also possessed a romantic interest in Kira.
Then, Trent discovered the White Dino Gem in his father's laboratory and became the White Dino Ranger. Trent was possessed by the Drago Morpher, and his kind and gentle personality was slowly being corrupted by the Gem and he eventually joined Mesogog against the Dino Rangers. The Rangers thought Trent lost his kind side and couldn't redeem himself. Then Trent decided to destroy Mesogog, but Zeltrax framed Trent and Mesogog decided to kill him. However the personality of his father took control and Trent was freed and gained control over the Dino Morpher, obtaining the chance to turn to the side of good. Trent then joined Rangers, regaining his friendship with them. Trent had numerous adventures with the Rangers, including fights against Elsa, who held contempt against him, for switching sides. He kept his knowledge that Mesogog was his father's alter-ego a secret from his teammates, which strained their friendship when it was revealed. Trent also fought his evil copy with contempt, seeing it as a living bad memory of his time as a villain. In the final battle with Mesogog and Zeltrax Trent battled alongside his friends and voluntarily lost his powers to destroy Mesogog once and for all. Trent then continued his job as a waiter and started creating comics.
Other than Super Dino Mode and the power to morph into Ranger form, Trent's Dino Gem, the White Dino Gem, gives him other powers as well.
- Super Speed: Trent is able to move at superhuman speeds, but not as fast as Conner. He makes the most use of this power in high-speed running attacks while morphed.
- Camouflage: Trent's civilian power, where he can blend into his background, akin to a chameleon. It is not true invisibility (which is Tommy's power), but it is close.
- Teleportation: Trent can teleport to any location at will.
- Ninja Revelation: Trent is able appear in any place manifesting a small explosion of smoke of color white.

- Drago Morpher - Trent stumbled into Mesogog's lab through an Invisiportal where he found a Dino Gem, which transformed into the Drago Morpher. Activated by the cry "White Ranger, Dino Power!" but there have been times when he would instead say "Dino Thunder, Power Up!" but this was few and far between. This morph call may be a reference to a song that often played in the background while Tommy used the White Tigerzord in Season 2 of Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, which the song repeated "White Ranger Tiger Power" to a tune. The Dino Gem gave him a series of confusing premonitions before transforming him and transporting him to battle a creature sent by Elsa as bait. The Drago Morpher is used to control the DragoZord, and like the other Morphers, it also as an interchangeable face, depending on which Zord is required.
- Drago Sword - The Drago Sword is the weapon of the White Ranger. It has the ability to fire laser arrows, all of which explode on impact. Like the Brachio Staff, it can also be joined with the Z Rex Blaster.
- Dino ATV - Personal vehicle.
- Thundermax Blaster - Temporarily, stolen from Red Dino Ranger.
