QuickTypes: Power Rangers (2017)


Trini Kwan/Yellow Ranger: ISFP

Probably the most under-developed of all rangers character-wise. One thing is for sure is that she is a hardcore Fi. Very tough, independent and stern but when she finally opens up, she says she hates her family for not understanding who she is and forcing her to become something she’s not. Like 4 of the 5 rangers, she shows prominent Se as well.

Zack Taylor/Black Ranger: ESTP

Zack lives for action probably more than the rest of group, for one thing, immediately riding his zord against all restrictions (Se). He is a bit cocky and smart-mouthed (Ti). He is very close to his mother and acts as her sole caretaker, he openly professes her love for her to others (Fe).

Kimberly Hart/Pink Ranger: ESFP

Yet another SP ranger, Kimberly also gets off on the excitement of her new found powers, grabbing Trini and throwing themselves off a cliff in sheer exhilaration. She commands her pterodactyl zord effortlessly. Like Jason and Trini, she internalizes her angst and pain (Fi).

Zordon: ESFJ

Zordon’s entire purpose is to find a new group to defend Earth, work their potential and rally them to defend Earth (Fe). He gets really impatient when they don’t abide by his protocol (Si) Zordon is still really affected by his past failure even if it was no less than 65+ millions years ago, he’s afraid of the same events repeating themselves. He constantly draws parallels between Jason and himself, being the former red ranger. When he thinks the new group of teens just don’t seem up to the task, he figures he should just go out and confront her himself against all odds (Ne/Inferior Ti).

Rita Repulsa: INTJ

Rita is obsessed with one thing: Gold. She gathers all the gold in Angel Grove with one goal in mind of summoning Goldar (Ni). She will destroy anyone in her way to accomplish this (Te) She is also known to be opportunistic, turning her back on the other rangers millions of years ago for her own benefit. She still harbors hatred and resentment towards Zordon to this day (Fi). She seems completely lost as she stumbles down the streets in the present day and prefers not to face the Rangers head on herself, rather leaving the dirty work to Goldar (Se). 


Here’s how ‘Power Rangers’ addresses Trini’s sexuality

  • The Power Rangers movie will do something the original live-action series, and no major superhero film, has done before it: feature the first LGBTQ superhero.
  • The news comes from Power Rangers director Dean Israelite, who spoke with the Hollywood Reporter. The Yellow Ranger, Trini, played by Becky G addresses her sexuality while still “questioning a lot about who she is.”
  • “She hasn’t fully figured it out yet,” Israelite tells the Hollywood Reporter. “I think what’s great about that scene and what that scene propels for the rest of the movie is, ‘That’s OK.’ The movie is saying, 'That’s OK,’ and all of the kids have to own who they are and find their tribe.”
  • The news of Trini’s sexuality was quickly praised on the Twitterers. We have a description of the exact scene in which Trini talks about her sexuality (spoiler warning): Read more (3/20/17 6:51 PM)
