Top 10 Best Black Power Rangers:
1. Zack Taylor
Number one on our list is the original Black Ranger, Zack Taylor. Zack was the first African American Ranger in the franchise, and he quickly became a fan favorite. He was cool, confident, and always ready to fight. Plus, he had some of the best one-liners in the show. “I’m bad, and that’s good. I will never be good, and that’s not bad. There’s no one I’d rather be than me.”
In the aftermath of Rita’s escape, Zordon selected five youngsters to be his Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. When things get tough, Zack’s cheerful demeanor always lifts the spirits of the rest of the original Rangers. As long as Bulk and Skull tease him, he’ll prank them back too.
2. Carlos Vallerte
Next on our list is the second Black Ranger, Carlos Vallerte. Carlos was introduced in the second season of Power Rangers: Turbo. He was a skilled martial artist and an expert strategist. He was also the first Ranger to ever defeat the evil space pirate Divatox in single combat.

As the Green Turbo Ranger, Adam Park has chosen Carlos Vallerte to succeed him in the role. Carlos was to go to become the Black Space Ranger in the future. To be sure, Carlos isn’t among the greatest Rangers ever, but he’s a better person because of his friendship with Adam.

Power Rangers RPM’s Dillon is a standout character. Characters with peculiarities appear in every Power Rangers series. Quirks can be natural abilities or gemstones implanted in their foreheads that allow them to read people’s minds. Dillon has amnesia in RPM, and he spends a lot of time outside of costume searching for information about his history.
Season-long secrets are common in several Rangers shows, and RPM’s mystery is no exception. Dillon loves to be by himself most of the time due to the fact that he has no idea who he really is.
