Mirai Sentai Timeranger (未来戦隊タイムレンジャー, Mirai Sentai Taimurenjā, Future Squadron Timeranger) is a Japanese tokusatsu television series and the 24th series in Toei's Super Sentai metaseries. Footage from this series was used in the American production Power Rangers Time Force. It aired from February 13, 2000, to February 11, 2001, replacing Kyuukyuu Sentai GoGoFive, and was replaced by Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger. The opening narration of the series announces, "People from the future in the year 3000 AD and one man have met by chance, for the sake of marking a new passage of time…!" (西暦3000年の未来人たちと一人の男が出会った。新しい時を刻む為に‥！, Seireki sanzennen no miraijin-tachi to hitori no otoko ga deatta. Atarashii toki wo kizamu tameni). Timeranger was released on DVD by Shout! Factory in North America on July 31, 2018. This is the 9th Super Sentai Series to be released on Region 1 DVD in North America. The series debuted on February 13, 2000, when it replaced Kyuukyuu Sentai GoGoFive in TV Asahi's 7:30 JST time-slot, joining the recently-debuted Kamen Rider Kuuga in what would 3 years later become the Super Hero Time programming block.
In the 30th century, time travel becomes illegal after a time paradox crisis. The Time Protection Bureau (TPB) is established to watch for and stop time crimes. Four new enlistee cadets of the TPB are tricked by mafia leader Don Dolnero and his gang into letting them time-travel to the year 2000 to commit various crimes and, to protect history, the four cadets pursue them. They encounter a severe problem: the Timeranger program requires five members for the first operation. They coerce a present-day martial artist, Tatsuya Asami, to join them, and they become the Timerangers. Tatsuya rents a building for them to live in, and they start a small odd-jobs business called Tomorrow Research to financially support themselves.
Over time, the four cadets begin to realize that their presence would inevitably change the future in the form of the City Guardians, a security force under the employment of the Asami Corporation to protect the city from the Londerz. The City Guardians form a tenuous relationship with the Timerangers, especially when Tatsuya's college acquaintance Naoto becomes Time Fire and later also becomes the City Guardian's captain.
- "Timeranger! [Name of prisoner]! Breaking the time travel law is a 1st class criminal offense!"
Tatsuya Asami/Time Red (浅見 竜也/タイムレッド, Asami Tatsuya/Taimu Reddo): The main protagonist of the series, Tatsuya is a 22-year-old martial artist who is "drafted" into the team. He refuses to accept fate and his heritage as future CEO of his father's company. He believes that people can control their own destiny, but only if they fight for a desirable future. After joining the Timerangers, Tatsuya decides to move out of his father's house and uses his savings to rent the building that would be the Timeranger's home. He works as a karate teacher at Tomorrow Research. Although Yuuri is the team leader, Tatsuya is the driving force of the Timerangers, essentially acting as field commander during the battles. When operating the Time Robo formations, Tatsuya is usually in charge of accessing the finishers to recapture the Londerz Prisoners by wielding a miniature version of the Space-Time Sword/Chrono Divider to mimic the movement pattern. In the finale, one year after the final battle, Tatsuya continues to live freely by choosing his lifestyle until he feels that he is ready to join his father's company. At the end of the series, Tatsuya runs into four individuals who resemble Yuuri, Ayase, Domon and Sion, who may be their ancestors, and even an individual who resembles Naoto.

She works as a detective at Tomorrow Research but is open to other jobs such as cleaning services. In the series finale, she confesses to Tatsuya that she loves him, but they cannot be together due to the large gap between their timelines. Therefore, she returns to her own time and finds that, due to the time change in the 30th century, Dolnero's hit on her family ten years earlier had failed.

As the only Timeranger with a driver's license, he works as a chauffeur at Tomorrow Research. Ayase, however, has the incurable terminal illness Osiris Syndrome. When Tatsuya finds out about the disease, he is determined to help his friend. The other Timerangers are shocked when Tatsuya is forced to reveal Ayase's illness to them.

However, Domon, who comes from a large family, is the only one who truly misses the 30th century, and he has some resentment towards Ryuuya for trapping them in the 20th century. This results in him taking his frustrations out on Tatsuya when the four cadets first meet him due to his resemblance to Ryuuya. Although Domon works as the self-defense teacher at Tomorrow Research, he has no students. Domon argues with Ayase frequently due to the latter's humor towards his attitude on women. However, he does care about him deep down. An emotional Domon wanted Ayase to quit after learning about Ayase's illness, though he reluctantly accepts Ayase's choice of not wanting to quit the team. Later on, Domon falls in love with camerawoman Honami Moriyama. After his secret identity is revealed to her, the two start dating, and Domon eventually tells her that he comes from the 30th century. After the future is changed in the finale, Domon learns that his ban is reduced to a one-year suspension from the ring, which was up by the time he returns to the year 3001.

After Naoto becomes Time Fire, colored red, the Asami Group attempts to analyze the technology for mass production, but cannot fully understand the 30th century technology. He finds out through Sion that the Londerz are just prisoners and only need to be recaptured. Eventually, he learns that the Timerangers came from the 30th century and, because of his desire for power, he chooses to find a way to use his new knowledge of the Timerangers to his advantage. After Wataru is hospitalized, Naoto is able to use that knowledge to gain full control of the City Guardians. Naoto also owns two pet birds, Tora and Sakura, which he later gives to a little girl. After Naoto is injured during the battle against NeoCrisis, he finds out that Wataru has forced Ibuki to resign and the City Guardians were able to remove the voice lock function on the V-Commander, which means they no longer need him.

Later in the series, he travels to 2000 to take over the role of Time Red once more, but returns the changer to Tatsuya soon after. Uninterested in the past, Ryuuya insists that Yuuri and the others return to the future, as the Lambda 2000 intends to cause the Earth in the past to cease to exist. However, once they return, he attempts to erase their memories of their time in 2000–2001, telling the Timerangers how their actions in the past have changed their futures for the better. However, Yuuri and the others flee just as Ayase confronts and mortally wounds Ryuuya. Ryuuya reveals that, not only is he the one who lets Don Dolnero escape into the past, but everything leading to the Timerangers being formed and Gien's insanity reaching its peak are also planned to ensure that the "better" of the two futures he saw would come to pass. He also reveals that the Timerangers are supposed to die in the first giant battle, and the aid he sends save their lives many times over. The original pilot of the V-Rex, Ryuuya discovers two futures six years earlier when the G-Zord gets lost in space-time, along with him: one with Gien's battle with the V-Rex destroying a third of the 21st century, and another in which Gien's death by the G-Zord leads to the complete destruction of the 31st century. In both futures, however, Ryuuya, as Time Fire, dies. To prevent his demise, Ryuuya sets up the V-Rex's disappearance to ensure that someone from the past will become Time Fire and die in his place. However, his actions merely change the manner in which he dies, and when he dies. Before his death, he asks how he could possibly be blamed for doing what he did, saying that he wanted to do what the Timerangers were doing for themselves: to make a better future.

- Time Shadow (タイムシャドウ, Taimu Shadō): Time Shadow is to be finished around 3015, but somehow finished early and sent to the 21st Century by the Inter-City Police Department to counter the temporal disruptions caused by Gien. It can transform from Stealth Mode (ステルスモード, Suterusu Mōdo) to Battle Mode (バトルモード, Batoru Mōdo) (the undercarriage becomes the legs, the nose becomes the chest [revealing the head], and part of each wing becomes an arm, with the guns as hands) which is armed with the Lightning Shoot (ライトニングシュート, Raitoningu Shūto) and two Shadow Sabers (シャドウセイバー, Shadō Seibā) that can become combined into a single sword called the Double Shadow (ダブルシャドウ, Daburu Shadō) to perform its finisher, the Blue Moon Slash (ブルームーンスラッシュ, Burū Mūn Surasshu).

Armed with the Pro Divider (プロディバイダー, Puro Dibaidā) that enables them to recapture Londerz prisoners, it can become a gun for Time Robo Shadow Beta to use its Pressure Cannon (プレッシャーカノン, Puresshā Kanon) finisher or a sword for Time Robo Shadow Alpha to perform its Blizzard Slash (ブリザードスラッシュ, Burizādo Surasshu) finisher after firing the Virtual Net (バーチャルネット, Bācharu Netto). Time Shadow forms the chest, wings, posterior, feet, and foot guards for both forms, as well as the shoulder cannons for Time Robo Shadow Alpha. The Time Shadow is last seen being taken down by the G-Zord and what becomes of it is unknown.
- V-Rex (ブイレックス, Bui Rekkusu): The Inter-City Police's strongest mecha. It was lost in a time experiment and later emerges in the 21st century, where the Timerangers are. After recovering the V-Commander, the V-Rex's control device, and becoming Time Fire, Naoto gains control of the V-Rex shortly afterwards, using the command "Go, V-Rex!" to summon the V-Rex from the forest. The V-Rex's armaments are the Rex Laser (レックスレーザー, Rekkusu Rēzā) and Max Burning (マックスバーニング, Makkusu Bāningu). V-Rex assumes a more human-like form, V-Rex Robo (ブイレックスロボ, Bui Rekkusu Robo), where its Revolver Missiles (リボルバーミサイル, Riborubā Misairu) are shot from its right hand and its Rex Punch (レックスパンチ, Rekkusu Panchi) is fired from its left hand. V-Rex Robo's finisher, which allows it to recapture Londerz prisoners, is its Max Blizzard (マックスブリザード, Makkusu Burizādo) fired from the shoulders. By the command of "Reverse Formation, V-Rex!", it can return to its dinosaur form. Time Robo Alpha once rode on the V-Rex's back in an impromptu riding formation. In the finale, it is revealed that when the V-Rex and Neo-Crisis' power sources come in contact with each other, they create a time pulse that will take out bits of the world. Later, after Naoto dies, Sion is able to modify the DV Defender for Tatsuya to use the DV-Vulcan to alter the V-Rex's Lamba 2000 into Zeta-3, enabling Tatsuya to destroy Neo-Crisis without endangering the world.
The Londerz Family (ロンダーズファミリー, Rondāzu Famirī) are the main antagonists of Timeranger. Their base of operations is the Londer Penitentiary (ロンダー刑務所, Rondā Keimusho), which their group is named after.
Don Dolnero (ドン・ドルネロ, Don Dorunero, 1–47) is a blue whale-like mafioso godfather who is only in it for the money, though he also has a firm love for the family. Originally leader of the Dolnero family (ドルネロズファミリ, Dorunero Famirī), he is to be detained for 1,000 years, as Prisoner #35273, until his gang takes over the prison and goes back in time to pull off numerous crimes. With Borg's help, he takes over a company to make even more money, setting up a "protection business". He cares for his associates, especially Gien, whose mental stability often concerns him. When Gien releases Emboss, Dolnero provides his blood to the Timerangers so the City Guardians can make the vaccine before he controls Gien with a shut down key to stop him from going too far in his psychotic delights. Once the shut down key is removed and destroyed, Dolnero evacuates the Londer Penitentiary before going out to kill Gien. Dolnero is unable to carry out the deed, only to be killed himself. Before his death, he gives the Timerangers the location of the remaining Londerz prisoners he had in the Londer Penitentiary. His name is a pun on the word, dinheiro.
Don Dolnero is voiced by Ryūzaburō Ōtomo (大友 龍三郎, Ōtomo Ryūzaburō).
Gien (ギエン, Gien) is an evil and insane robotic scientist. He is responsible for constructing the Zenitts that are sent against the Timerangers. Gien is actually a cyborg, formerly a mentally challenged human boy who can only count up to three before Don Dolnero teaches him to count to four, who befriends the criminal in 2990 when he is hiding from the Kronz family. The Kronz nearly kill Gien for not revealing Dolnero's location. Dolnero saves his life by having a friend of his transfer the boy's brain into a robotic body and connecting up a large electronic brain. There are horrible side-effects that have and are still driving Gien into madness. He has access to the Hell's Gate prisoners and cares for nothing except for his own masochistic pleasures, occasionally going against Dolnero's orders, as well. He has constructed several massive robots, powered by the Lambda-2000 crystal that he steals twice from the Kawasaki Laboratories. He attempts to take control of the V-Rex, as well. After seeing the G-Zord in action, Gien creates a device to drain the power from the G-Zord and then from the Timerangers robots. Eventually, Tatsuya arrives to help his friends, defeating Gien before destroying his device. Though the G-Zord is destroyed, Gien uses the Lambda-2000 he stole to assume his role as the "God of Destruction". Dolnero eventually tries everything in his power to stop Gien, only to die in his vain attempt. Gien later pilots the NeoCrisis robot, wired into his creation as he destroys everything in his path. After Tatsuya saves the future by destroying NeoCrisis, Gien's original personality resurfaces as he breaks part and dissolves away into sand. Despite his psychotic evil tendencies, Gien is one of the most tragic characters in the series.

- Hell's Gate Prisoner Harbal (ヘルズゲート囚・ハーバル, Heruzu Gēto Shū Hābaru, 42): A destructive, murderous, walrus-themed creature armed with a bazooka. Harbal was released by Gien to obtain the Lambda 2000 from the 3rd R&D Lab. While Gien fought the Timerangers, he battled Time Fire in a fight that critically wounded Mr. Asami. Once Time Fire defeats him, Harbal enlarged himself and battled the V-Rex. Though Harbal was brought in by V-Rex Robo, Gien escapes with the Lambda 2000, thanks to Ryuuya's help. His name is a pun on the word "hairball". Voiced by Kenji Nomura
- Catastrophic Weapon Nova (破壊兵器・ノヴァ, Hakai Heiki Nova, 18 & 19): A Zenitt-headed robot created by Gien and powered by Zeta 3. Supposedly put through the freezing-compression system and unleashed, Gien enlarges his creation to destroy the city. With Time Robo still damaged from its fight with Sandoora, the Raimei is deployed to destroy the robot, but Nova proves superior and destroys the Raimei with little trouble. Everything seems hopeless until Time Shadow arrives, able to withstand Nova's arsenal and destroy the fierce robot.
- Combat Bio-Robot G-Zord (生体戦闘ロボットGゾード, Seitai Sentō Robotto Ji Zōdo, 43 & 44): A powerful dragon-themed energy reactor robot that was lost in a time experiment like the V-Rex in 2994. Though immune to all forms of external attacks, its only weak point is its mute-energy reactor. An attack on it is enough to destroy it with a 20-centimeter diameter heat vent connecting to the reactor. The G-Zord appears in the 20th century after Ryuuya arrives to negate the end of the 30th century by taking over Tatsuya's position as Time Red to form Time Robo Shadow Beta and aim for the heat vent. Gien provokes the G-Zord into combat mode as the V-Rex arrives, with the G-Zord retreating to heal itself. Once healed, the G-Zord resumes its attack on the city. With Time Robo Beta and Time Shadow fighting the robot, Gien uses his machine to siphon the mute-energy from the G-Zord, leaving it partially active, and to disable the Timerangers' powers and robots until Tatsuya destroys the machine and restores their powers. After the Timerangers convince Ryuuya to give the Chrono Changer back to Tatsuya, Tatsuya is able to come up with a strategy to allow the Timerangers to defeat the G-Zord for good by having Time Robo Alpha ride on the V-Rex's back in a riding formation, then jump off to move in from behind and strike the G-Zord's weak spot with its sword. While the G-Zord's remains are taken by Gien, its destruction not only saves the 30th century but alters its history as well with the Great Extinction coming in 2001.
- Crisis (クライシス, Kuraishisu, 46 & 47): A robot with an axe for a right hand and a machine gun for a left hand. Created by Gien and powered by Zeta-3, Crisis is sent to destroy the city. Time Fire and the Timerangers battle it until it enlarges itself, with the V-Rex and Time Flyer fighting it. Once he hears it is a robot and that they can destroy it, Time Fire uses the V-Rex's Max Burning to scrap the robot.
- NeoCrisis (ネオ・クライシス, Neo Kuraishisu, 48–50): Gien's final robot. NeoCrisis resembles Gien and was created by him to battle the V-Rex. Powered by Lambda-2000, it is also programmed to synchronize with its creator's movements. Once fully functional and enlarged, Gien pilots NeoCrisis to begin his reign of destruction. Time Fire arrives, with the V-Rex, and the two giants engage in a battle, which also ensures the Great Extinction of 2001. After defeating the V-Rex, Gien decides to find something else for NeoCrisis to destroy, while space-time worsens until the robot starts to overheat. Gien falls back to make repairs and to plan the actual date of when a third of the world is to be destroyed. During its second attack, NeoCrisis overpowers the V-Rex until Time Jet Gamma arrives and disables NeoCrisis for a moment. Time Robo Alpha holds off NeoCrisis as Time Red converts the V-Rex's Lambda-2000 to Zeta-3. Once Time Robo Beta puts NeoCrisis in position after the conversion is complete (due to the V-Rex not being able to move), the robot is eventually destroyed by the V-Rex's Max Burning, causing Gien to shut down, break apart, and dissolve into nothing as a result.

Mirai Sentai Timeranger Super Video: All the Strongest Hero Secrets
This is a direct-to-video release made specifically for Mirai Sentai Timeranger. It talks about the Timerangers' story so far and showcases the Timerangers' weapons and mecha.
Mirai Sentai Timeranger vs. GoGoFive
Direct-to-video movie released on March 9, 2001. Taking place on October 25, 2000, between cases 35 and 36, the Timerangers confront the Londerz prisoner Boribaru, who somehow resists the Voltech Bazooka and runs off. This infuriates Matoi Tatsumi who, with his siblings, are dealing with the fire Boribaru caused to call the Timerangers out, and he criticizes the Timerangers for lacking any spirit. Later, unaware of their civilian identities, the Tatsumi siblings arrive at Tomorrow Research to get help in finding their father, who mysteriously disappeared, along with their GoGo Braces. When Tac alerts them to a Londerz attack, the Timerangers confront relatives of the Londerz prisoners they defeated with the Tatsumi siblings watching them transform from afar. By then, it is revealed that the Londerz prisoners' new-found invincibility is the work of Spell Master Pierre, the surviving servant of the Psyma family. However, just as Pierre is about to get his revenge, Mondo comes to his children's aid and gives them their GoGo Braces to help the Timerangers. The two Sentai teams fight the prisoners until Pierre makes Boribaru powerful enough to create a space-time distortion that sucks all combatants into pocket dimensions. While others fight for their lives against the prisoners with their transformation devices disabled, Pierre tries to stop Mondo from getting the Sentai teams back until Time Fire intervenes. Having Naoto call in V Rex, who scares Pierre away, Tac links himself to its Chrono Unit while having Naoto order his robot to create a time hole for the teams to assume their Sentai forms and defeat the prisoners, while returning to their time. With Time Fire joining in, the Timerangers and GoGoFive manage to freeze the Londerz relatives. However, left behind by Don Dolnero and his group, Pierre is forced to use a Psyma Fusion spell with Boribaru to become Pierre Bori, who overpowers Time Shadow Alpha, reverting it to Time Robo Alpha and Time Shadow. But in a gambit that could tear apart the fabric of time, Mondo takes advantage to Time Robo's hammer time space to call MaxLiner and GoLiner from 1999 so the GoGoFive can form Victory Robo. With Victory Robo transferring the energies of its Victory Prominence to Time Robo, it assumes Riding Time Robo Formation to V Rex to perform the Pressure Prominence to both destroy Pierre and arrest Boribaru. Soon after, as the GoGoFive mecha return to 1999, the two sentai teams part on good terms.

International Broadcasts & Home Video
- In its home country of Japan, the series was released in full on Rental and Sale VHS by Toei Video from April 2001 to March 2002. It was released in a total span of 12 volumes, with the first nine volumes containing four episodes, while the final three volumes contain five. Because there was a change in the video release schedule from the following year (October for rentals), the 10th volume (which was the 7th for rental) came out at the same time, Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger was being released on home video during its original broadcasting. In addition, this work was the last style of recording the trailers of the works recorded in the next volume at the end of the TV work of Toei Video Release, which had been done for a long time. Then in 2004 from February 21 to June 21, Toei Video would release the full series on DVD for the first time and would span through five volumes. The first four volumes contain 10 episodes, while the final volume contain 11 episodes. On January 12, 2022, to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the series' conclusion, a collection set to spread through two volumes was released with the first volume having 25 episodes, and the second having 26.
- International releases were very limited to a few regions, because most of them around the world would receive foreign language dubs of the Power Rangers adaptation, which is Power Rangers Time Force. Although some Asian regions have aired the Power Rangers adaptation in addition.
- In Thailand, the series has had some complications towards the handling of publication. At first, TIGA Company had the original distribution rights to the series in the region and it was released with a Thai dub. It was initially readily available on VHS during its original Japanese broadcasting at the time. But only 5 tapes were released with ten episodes (two episodes per tape), due to a change in distributors between TIGA and Rose Company. This caused a temporary cease in releases at the time, which TiGA ended up releasing Seijuu Sentai Gingaman instead during this period. Then in 2001, Rose then had the rights to release it on home video, this time on VCD, which had all episodes released except for the very last episode, which did not get a Thai dub. By still using the team of TIGA as before according to the conditions set by TIGA in addition, it then later aired on TV in 2003 on Channel 5 in full with all 50 episodes dubbed despite Power Rangers Time Force airing in that country. But when Rose Company got the rights to the Mirai Sentai Timeranger vs. GoGoFive crossover movie to be released in the region, it had new voice actors and new translations which are different from TIGA's.
- In the Philippines, it was aired on RPN (2003-2004) with the first Tagalog dub as Power Rangers adaptation called Power Rangers Time Force. This series ends in 2004 before Power Rangers Wild Force aired on ABS-CBN.
- In Malaysia despite airing Power Rangers Time Force in 2002, Timeranger aired with a Malay dub produced by FKN Dubbing on TV2 around 2005 and finished around 2006, marketed as simply Time Ranger. It was also released on VCD and DVD.
- In North America, the series would receive a DVD release by Shout! Factory on July 31, 2018 in the original Japanese audio with English subtitles. It is the ninth Super Sentai series to be officially released in the region.
