Before becoming a Power Ranger, Troy was a martial artist. During his teenage years, he receives visions about the Legend War - an armada of Power Rangers battling an unknown evil force, and among them, a mysterious new warrior. After one such dream, he woke up to discover that he was late for his first day of school. Later that day, Gosei summoned him and four others. He noted how the statues of other past Rangers lining the walls resembled those from his dreams. Gosei gave him the power of the Red Ranger, and soon he led the new Power Rangers into battle against the Warstar. The team won, and Troy rapidly adjusted to his new role as one of the defenders of Earth.
During a prolonged battle with his team against Dragonflay, Creepox interfered to battle Troy. Though Creepox initially gained the upper hand at first, Troy finally managed to defeat him for the time being, forcing Creepox to retreat. As a result, Troy was too badly injured to fight when Dragonflay was enlarged, leaving it up to the Yellow and Black Rangers to defeat Dragonflay with the new powers of the Land Brothers Zords.
Months later, Troy encountered two bullies in school. The bullies taunted him, asking if he was going to cry; his response was "Take a good look. You see any tears?" When he saw another kid getting bullied, he stood up for him.
After school, Troy fought Creepox for the third time. Though Creepox was once again still gaining the upper hand, Troy discovered that the monster was driven by rage, so he used his rage against him. Eventually Troy defeated Creepox with his Dragon Sword. When Creepox was revived by Vrak and his Zombats, Troy along with the other Rangers formed the Gosei Great Megazord. Seeing that wasn't enough, they formed the Ultra Gosei Great Megazord (formed with the zord he just earned from Gosei) to defeat Creepox once and for all.
It was Christmas. Gia and Emma had finished shopping given the presents to the guys, but the guys had forgotten. Noah calls them to see Robo Knight, who agreed to pose as a holiday toy.
Returning to the Command Center after battling the invading army of XBorgs, he and the rangers receive their new Super Megaforce powers to fight the newly arrived Armada with. After their first battle, Troy goes to the beach and asks "Where are you, Robo Knight?"
With Harwood City being rebuilt, Troy stumbles upon a plot by the Armada to launch missiles at major cities throughout the world.
Troy and his friends battle against the royal alien family member Prince Vekar and the Armada branch under his command. Troy and his friends later meet Orion, the Super Megaforce Silver Ranger and replacement to Robo Knight, who told them about his backstory of how his native planet Andresia was destroyed by the very enemies the Megaforce were fighting now. Troy and the rest of the Rangers formed a friendship with Orion. After defeating Prince Vekar for good and destroying him along with the Armada Megazord, Troy and the Rangers later fought against Vrak and Robo Knight, the latter of whom was turned evil as Orion was kidnapped by Vrak to absorb his life energy into special sources, canceling the Rangers' Legendary Modes and powering up his key-shaped drills to destroy the Earth.
Troy fought against Robo Knight to fight off Vrak's control of him and succeeded and he and the Rangers defeated Vrak. Troy and his friends were battling a group of XBorgs since the royal brothers Vekar and Vrak were gone. Troy and Orion go to buy tickets to a rock concert for them and their friends; Orion told Troy about working in the rock quarry. Troy and his friends faced off against Damaras, one of the remaining Armada Generals. Troy was kidnapped by Damaras as per the orders of Vekar and Vrak's father and used as a bargaining chip for the Earth to surrender to the Armada but was saved by Jake and Tensou. Troy and his friends defeated Damaras using their final Megazord combination, the Ultimate Legendary Megazord. Troy and his friends went to the rock concert. Orion decided to return to his home planet he bid farewell to his friends and he gave Troy his bracelet as a sign of their friendship and told him to hold on to it until he came back. Troy and the other Rangers said goodbye to their friend. Troy and his friends were glad when Orion came back to Earth and they battled the Armada after a fight with the Armada's entire fleet that decimated their Zords. Troy and Orion battled and seemingly killed Emperor Mavro in an intense fight together while the main Armada ship was going down and they escaped by turning into Legendary Mode In Space Red and Silver Ranger respectively as the ship was destroyed and they landed on the ground approaching their friends who thought they had perished. Troy and his friends along with the Legendary Rangers then helped defeat the Armada for good.
Troy is a born leader, though he may not know it yet. His tough upbringing made him responsible and focused, and it shows in his incredible martial arts skills. As the new kid in town, he's kind of a loner at the start, but makes fast friends when he joins up with the Megaforce Rangers. Troy is compassionate and loyal, and a true champion of the underdog. But mess with the Red Ranger's friends, and they are in for a fierce fight with him and his Dragon Zord. Additionally, Troy has a strong faith in humanity and believes that if they work together, they can do anything. He also will not initiate a fight unless it's absolutely necessary, shown in his first encounter with Creepox, a general of the Warstar Insectoid aliens.
Troy is also known for being one of the more serious Rangers to appear in the series, while having a sence of humor occasionally, he (much like the Wolf Ranger from Power Rangers Wild Force previously) is always sharp in battle and will stop at nothing to destroy the Armada and save the world.
He became close to Robo Knight, spending all his free time looking for him shortly after the Armada arrived. During the final battle with Vrak, who had corrupted Robo Knight, Troy let out a rage-filled battle cry in his friend's honor, slaying Vrak for good.
While still unmorphed and living a normal life, Troy is usually very quiet, far more than his friends who talk often. He'll say things here and there, but only when they are necessary. He tends to talk the most when a threat is looming, and while he's leading. Troy also speaks in a calm and collective manner, and doesn't display a lot of emotion. He also seems to enjoy practicing martial arts, as seen when he trains with his friends, and in the first episode when he tries to kick a drink bottle before being teleported to the command center.
As Megaforce Red, he has a Dragon motif. He pilots the Gosei Dragon Mechazord. Red Ranger's main weapon is a sword called the Dragon Sword that resembles Dragon Mechazord's tail. He uses Power Cards with his Gosei Morpher.

Behind the scenes
Troy Burrows was portrayed by Andrew Gray. In real life, he is more outgoing than his portrayal of the character, but the producers made him intentionally wooden and calm, which is why he does not display a lot of emotion.
When morphed, Troy was respectively portrayed by suit actors Yasuhiro Takeuchi (竹内 康博 Takeuchi Yasuhiro) (Megaforce Red; later served as Super Megaforce Green), in footage from Goseiger, and Hirofumi Fukuzawa (福沢 博文 Fukuzawa Hirofumi) (Super Megaforce Red; previously served as Megaforce Blue), in footage from Gokaiger.
- Early scripts listed his name as "Reese" as with his predecessor Jayden.
- Unlike his Goseiger counterpart Alata, who is very outgoing, Troy starts out as the loner of the group. However, they both share an optimistic view of humanity.
- In the first episode of Megaforce, he says," Gosei said these morphers would give us power! Let's use them!" similar to Jason saying," Zordon said these morphers would give us power. Let's do it!".
- According to writer James W. Bates, Troy was originally intended to have a "Chosen One" storyline with a special power and connection to both the Morphin Grid and Robo Knight. Hints would have been seeded throughout both Megaforce seasons but the storyline was mostly abandoned early in the writing process. A few unexplained artifacts of this storyline remain notably the energy that emits from Troy when he charges up to free Robo Knight in "Vrak is Back" and his prophetic dreams.
- Many fans have considered Megaforce/Super Megaforce to be a large disappointment due to Andrew Gray's portrayal of Troy, which they considered to be incredibly robotic, with forced emotion. In an interview, Gray stated that he had portrayed Troy that way upon executive producer Jonathan Tzachor's request.
- Troy shares a few things in common with the other Super Mega Rangers in terms of counterparts:
- He is one of two Super Mega Rangers to have all of their counterparts share the same color as them and be a part of their respective teams' primary groups, the other being Noah.
- He is the only Super Mega Ranger to have all of their counterparts share the same gender as them.
- 3 Red Rangers (Quantum Ranger, Crimson Thunder Ranger and Wolf Warrior) are not Troy's counterparts as 2 of these Reds aren't part of their respective teams' primary groups while one of them doesn't come from a Sentai team at all.
Legendary Ranger Mode notes
- Troy's most used forms are of the Samurai Red if you include his power up is 5, while his least used forms are Red Alien Ranger, Red Turbo Ranger, Red Space Ranger, Red Dino Ranger and Blitz Red, each used 1 time. Out of this, he had never transformed into Red Lightspeed Ranger and Red Time Force Ranger.
- Troy is the only Super Mega Ranger who has transformed into a member of the Overdrive Rangers.
- Alata - Super Sentai counterpart in Goseiger. See comparison page.
- Captain Marvelous - Super Sentai counterpart in Gokaiger. See comparison page.
