"Red Ranger, Rescue ready!"
Carter Grayson is a Mariner Bay firefighter and the Red Lightspeed Rescue Power Ranger.
Carter Grayson was one of Mariner Bay's best firefighters. His daredevil maneuvers risked his life, but saved those in danger. Carter is brave, headstrong, and quick thinking. As a child, Carter was saved from a burning building by a mystery firefighter. This encounter led him to follow in his savior's footsteps and become a firefighter himself. He later found this mystery firefighter to be none other than Captain Mitchell, who recruited him into Lightspeed Rescue. Carter was the first to accept his role and took up the position of team leader as the Red Lightspeed Ranger, and courageously led the Rangers against Diabolico's forces. As the Red Ranger, Carter is a strong leader, however he is strict and by-the-book.
During the series, he develops feelings for Dana Mitchell, the Pink Ranger, but it's unknown if he has expressed them yet, though the feelings seems to be mutual. An example is in the episode The Last Ranger, when the Rangers, save Dana, lose their memories, Carter sees Dana get hurt and it restores his memories.
Carter bravely took down Queen Bansheera in a final battle, tossing her into the shadow world for good.
When remnants of the Machine Empire's forces unearthed Serpentera to destroy Earth, Carter teamed up with 9 other Red Rangers and traveled to the moon to stop them. He teamed up with Red Space Ranger Andros against Steelon.
Sean Cw Johnson has announced that he will reprise his role as Carter Grayson in Power Rangers Super Megaforce. His role as a Legendary Ranger is yet to be seen.

- Carter is a firefighter like his Sentai counterpart. However, of the Lightspeed Rangers, he's the only one that is a fire fighter.
- Carter has used his Battlizer the rarest out of all Reds with Battlizers, having been used only three times, including the team-up episode.
- Due to his guest appearance in both Time Force and Wild Force, Carter is the second to last Ranger to have appeared for 3 seasons in a row if the Samurai Ranger's appearances in Troy Burrows' dream count (Or if one considers Super Samurai a seperate season from Samurai).
- He is also the only Ranger to appear for three seasons straight to keep his original powers (The Mighty Morphing Team replaced their powers in Season 3, although, again, the Samurai Rangers may count depending on the viewer's opinion on Troy's dreams).
