Ethan is intrigued when he finds his Dino Gem. After realizing what's at stake, he glady becomes the Blue Ranger. Ethan uses the Tricera Armor to protect his skin and increase his stregnth and calls upon the mighty Tricerazord in the fight against evil. As a champion gamer, Ethan loves to play video games and surf the web. So much that he often becomes distracted, but after being zapped into a video game, Tommy reminds him that being a Ranger isn't a game. He learns that he must be prepared for anything.
Ethan used up the remainder of his Dino Gem energy in the final battle against Mesogog. He later goes on to attend classes at Reefside Tech. In 20 years, he will have become well known for writing software programs for various companies including S.P.D.
At his one year High School reunion, Ethan is brought to the future by Broodwing where he, Conner, and Kira meet up with the S.P.D. Rangers. Though their battles are legendary, they must prove to Commander Cruger and the other S.P.D. Rangers their true courage. Ethan is highly impressed by S.P.D. technology.
