The Psycho Rangers are evil counterparts of the Power Rangers and antagonists from Power Rangers In Space. The group consists of five rangers (Psycho Red, Psycho Black, Psycho Blue, Psycho Yellow and Psycho Pink).
In SpaceAstronema created the Psycho Rangers, not only to destroy the Power Rangers, but to help her overthrow Dark Specter, since their powers were tied to him. Because of this, the more they fought the more of Dark Specter's power they would drain. However the Psychos were too obsessed with destroying the Rangers and became increasingly frustrated since Astronema would constantly call them away from battle just when they were getting close to destroying the Power Rangers.
Eventually this obsession began leading to them engaging the Rangers on their own, which would cause the destruction of Psycho Pink and Psycho Blue. They were destroyed because the Rangers discovered each Psycho is designed to fight the Power Ranger of the corresponding colour. With Pink and Blue gone, the Rangers managed to destroy Psychos Red, Black and Yellow. However the Psychos still lived on as spirits.
Later when Astronema managed to use a machine to turn the Power Rangers and many of the citizens of Angel Grove into data cards, the Psychos succeeded in entering the machine, which let them regain their physical bodies. They freed the Rangers from their data cards so they could destroy them personally. Finding themselves outmatched, the Power Rangers managed to transform the Psychos into data cards.
Lost GalaxyHowever these cards found their way into the hands of Deviot, who freed the Psycho Rangers and sent them after the Lost Galaxy Power Rangers. But the Space Rangers returned and teamed up with them to defeat the Psycho Rangers, destroying all of them except for Psycho Pink. She managed to learn the location of the Savage Sword, a powerful sword that continually grew with more energy. After getting her hands on it, she engaged the Pink Galaxy and Space Rangers and managed to drive the sword into the Pink Space Ranger's morpher. This destroyed it and absorbing the energy of the morpher to make a tornado. After transforming into her monster form and growing, Psycho Pink engaged both team's Megazords, but was destroyed. However to save the Pink Space Ranger's life, the Pink Galaxy Ranger had to sacrifice her own.
The Monster forms of Psychos Blue and Pink were seen in the Shadow World's underground tomb when Queen Bansheera opened it.
Psycho RedPsycho Red was based on the Red Space Ranger and had absorbed his brainwaves, making Psycho Red perfect to fight Andros. He is the most egotistical, arrogant, brash, evil, brutal, violent and disloyal of the group and frequently disobeyed orders and caused conflict on the team. After Psycho Blue's destruction, Psycho Red, along with Psycho Yellow and Psycho Black, assumed human forms to try and track the Rangers by identifying their voices. As is the case with all the Psychos, Psycho Red has a monster form, a fire based monster and he wields the Psycho Sword.
Psycho BlackPsycho Black was based on the Black Space Ranger and had absorbed his brainwaves, making Psycho Black perfect to fight Carlos. He is the most intellectual, levelheaded and rational of the Psychos and is the most willing to follow Astronema's orders. After Psycho Blue's destruction, Psycho Black, along with Psycho Red and Psycho Yellow, assumed human forms to try and track the Rangers by identifying their voices. As is the case with all the Psychos, Psycho Black has a monster form, a rock-based monster and wields the Psycho Rod.
Psycho BluePsycho Blue was based on the Blue Space Ranger and had absorbed his brainwaves, making him perfect to fight TJ. He is the most cruel member of the team and possibly the most psychotic. Psycho Blue met his end the first time after the Rangers all dressed up as the Blue Ranger to confuse the Psychos and he fought them on his own. As is the case with all the Psychos, Psycho Blue has a monster form, an ice-based monster and wields the Psycho Axe.
Psycho YellowPsycho Yellow was based on the Yellow Space Ranger and had absorbed her brainwaves, making her perfect to fight Ashley. She was deceitful, calculating and manipulative, using her teammates to fulfill her own goals and preferring to work alone. After Psycho's Blue destruction, Psycho Yellow, along with Psycho Red and Psycho Black, assumed human forms to try and track the Rangers by identifying their voices. As is the case with all the Psychos, Psycho Yellow has a monster form, a hornet/lizard monster and wields the Psycho Slinger.
Psycho PinkPsycho Pink was based on the Pink Space Ranger and had absorbed her brainwaves, making her perfect to fight Cassie. Psycho Pink was first destroyed after Psycho Yellow manipulated Pink into helping her capture the Yellow Ranger, but she escaped and Psycho Pink pursued her, only to be destroyed after the other rangers arrived. As is the case with all the Psychos, Psycho Pink has a monster form, a plant-based monster and wields the Psycho Bow.
Psycho GreenPsycho Green is a comic-exclusive character that was absent in the TV series, but was the right hand of Dark Specter in the 19th century who was sent to release Rita Repulsa, but his spaceship was shot down by Zordon and Alpha 5. Psycho Green survived and his ship placed him into a deep sleep. A century later, Psycho Green was reawakened by the events of the moon landing. He attacks the Blue and Black Rangers, Nikolai Chukarin and Jamie Gilmore and kills Jamie with a boulder. After Grace, Terona and Daniel, the Red, Yellow and Pink Rangers show up to confront Psycho Green, Psycho Green is easily able to to defeat them by shattering Daniel's visor to make him lose oxygen and die in the vacuum of space before eventually reaching the space dumpster. The remaining Rangers shoot Psycho Green down, but the effect didn't work as he transforms into his monster form, a dragon-like flaming green monster and wields the Psycho Dagger as he chases the trio to Rita's palace. He was eventually destroyed when Nikolai made the ultimate sacrifice as the cost of his own life by setting an explosion in the inside of Psycho Green. Grace then secretly takes Psycho Green's dagger for safekeeping.
