The Wild Force Rangers are a team of Power Rangers who derive their powers from Animal Crystals representing the Wild Zords of Animaria. They came together to battle the evil Orgs and prevent them from conquering the world.

The Wild Force Rangers are the successors of the ancient Animarian Warriors who fought against the original Master Org and his forces 3000 years before the present day. During that battle, one of the warriors, Merrick Baliton, used the power of the evil Wolf Mask to defeat Master Org after the defeat of Animus, the master of the Wild Zords. Merrick succeeded, but was cursed and became the Duke Org Zen-Aku. As such, his fellow warriors imprisoned him to prevent him from causing harm to any of his former allies. With Animaria destroyed, its last fragment, the Animarium, lifted into the sky and remained hidden for millennia.
After 3000 years, human pollution caused the long dormant Orgs to begin awakening once again, posing a threat to the Earth. As such, Princess Shayla - Guardian of the Animarium - knew that a new group of heroes was needed. The first Wild Force Ranger was Taylor Earhardt, who discovered the Animarium while flying for the Air Force. In time the group would be added to by the arrival of Alyssa Enrilé, Danny Delgado, and Max Cooper. This left the team lacking only a Red Ranger, a role that would be filled by orphan Cole Evans. Cole had been raised in the jungle after the death of his parents, and arrived in Turtle Cove-where the other Rangers lived-with his animal crystal. After some initial difficulty, he joined the team and became their leader.
The Wild Force Rangers fought numerous battles against a being claiming to be Master Org and his Duke Orgs underlings, Jindrax and Toxica. Eventually, Master Org awakened General Nayzor to battle them, and the General in turn released Zen-Aku from his ancient prison. The Rangers fought several battles with this new foe before learning of his original identity as Merrick and setting out to free him. They eventually succeeded, and Merrick became the Lunar Wolf Ranger and destroyed Nayzor. He would afterwards act as a reluctant ally to the other Rangers before eventually joining forces with them. All six Rangers would also join forces with the Time Force Rangers and their former enemies Ransik and Nadira in order to battle a trio of Mut-Orgs, hybrids of the Orgs and the Mutants who had served as foes to the Time Force Rangers.
Shortly thereafter, the Rangers learned the true identity of the new Master Org: Viktor Adler, a former partner of Cole's parents who had killed the two out of jealousy after discovering and ingesting magic seeds intended to revive the original Master Org. They engaged him in battle and defeated him, and he reverted to human form, presumably nullified as a threat. However, General Org Mandilok rose to threaten the world in his place. At about this time, Animus returned in the form of a young boy named Kite, and at one point stripped the Rangers of their powers due to believing humanity corrupt and unworthy of protection. However, the bravery of the Rangers convinced him to change his mind, and he restored their powers to them. Cole would then be called upon to join a team of Veteran Red Rangers to help stop a Machine Empire plot involving the evil Zord Serpentera, and proved to be instrumental in destroying the giant war machine.
Viktor Adler soon returned as a true Org, destroying Mandilok and kidnapping Princess Shayla. He was able to create an Org Heart that he used to transform into a lethal combination of Nayzor, Mandilok, and Retinax. Using his new power, he attacked the Animarium and succeeded in destroying Animus and all of the Rangers' Wild Zords. However, the heroes refused to give up, and their determination revived their Zords and awakened the other dormant Wild Zords across the globe, who combined their powers to destroy Master Org. With all Orgs either destroyed or redeemed, the Rangers returned their morphers to Princess Shayla and went their separate ways.
Legacy of Power
The Wild Force Rangers were featured in a chronicle of Power Ranger history compiled by Tommy Oliver shortly after he formed the Dino Rangers, which was found by the nascent Ranger team in the Dino Lab.
The Wild Force Rangers returned as part of the army of Legendary Rangers that helped the Mega Rangers defeat the Armada once and for all, fighting in a huge battle against hundreds of X Borgs and dozens of Bruisers.

Video Game appearances
Power Rangers Dash
The Wild Force Rangers are among all the Ranger teams which appear in the Korean-developed mobile game Power Rangers Dash.
- Unlike Gaoranger, the Wild Force Rangers notably referred to each other by name instead of color for the entire series, although Gaoranger eventually did this after they formally introduced themselves in the series finale which was carried over to Ninpu Sentai Hurricaneger vs. Gaoranger.
- The Rangers have numerical designations as well, but these can be seen via the amount of stripes run across their chest.
- The Wild Force Rangers are the first team to be produced by Disney.
- The Wild Force Rangers hold the dubious distinction of being the only entire team whose actors never reprise their roles (in any form) in future series of the show.
- This is currently the only team to have a Yellow Ranger act as official leader for a period (although this is mostly prior to the beginning of the series, as Taylor relinquishes that role once Cole joins the team).
- The Wild Force Rangers are the second team after the Alien Rangers to have the Red, Blue, Black, Yellow and White main team formation.
- The Wild Force Rangers are the final team where the Yellow Ranger's gender in the footage is male.
