Tangerin is one of the members of the O'rangers Marble League team. They are one of the original members of the team, alongside Kinnowin, Clementin, Mandarin and the reserve member Orangin, they are from the O'Marble family, who run an orange farm close to the city of Orlango.

While Tangerin has been a crucial part of many team successes, they have a relatively poor history in individual events. In 2021, after Orangin was promoted, Tangerin was demoted to reserve member.

History

2016

Initially, the O'rangers were skeptical of Marble League 2016, and so went to the first event, Balancing, under the names O1, O2, O3 and O4, coming in 9th. The four saw the seriousness of the competition and decided to reveal their true names before participating in the next event, Relay Race. In said event, they finished 15th, but got a consolation point because of a construction defect in their lane. The team earned their first points by finishing 5th in Event 3, Collision. Tangerin wasn't able to get a good finish in Sand Rally after being eliminated in the heats despite a promising start.

In Event 5, Long Jump, Kinnowin broke the pre-existing Marble League record by 10 centimeters, winning the event and earning the O'rangers their first medal ever, a gold, and 10 points. They did not win any medals in the remaining events, but still finished strong with five top half finishes in a row. This helped the team end Marble League 2016 in 5th overall with 31 points. Of course they were happy with the results, but wanted more. Mandarin decided to build their team their very own training ground close to the farm.

2017

The O'rangers qualified for Marble League 2017 in third. They started the main competition in the upper half of the field, Things turned downwards as the team dropped to 10th in the standings after Tangerin's 13th-place-finish in 5 Meter Sprint. Clementin earned the team a bronze medal in Event 5, Hurdles. The team had continued their training even during the Marble League, but they eventually decided to stop so they could conserve their energy. However, the O'rangers had a few shaky performances in the first half of the season. As of Event 6, Relay Run, the team had dropped to 9th in the overall standings.But the O'rangers would soon make up for it by breaking a Marble League record and earning themselves a gold medal in Event 7, Block Pushing, moving up five spots in the standings into 4th place. This marked the start of the team's dominance in the remainder of the season as the O'rangers, boosted by the sheer energy of their fans who convinced them to keep pushing, proceeded to finish on the podium in three of the remaining five events.

In Event 8, High Jump, Mandarin performed exceptionally, claiming a silver medal as they came in second. This was enough to close the gap to the overall leaders and their rivals for the title, the Savage Speeders, to just 10 points.In the final event, Sand Rally, Swifty of the Savage Speeders was eliminated in the first heat, leaving the door to the championship wide open for the O'rangers. In fact, Clementin comfortably finished in the top 4 in their Heat race. Even though they finished second to Starry of Team Galactic, the O'rangers were able to steal the lead in the overall standings from the Savage Speeders to win Marble League 2017. But that's not all, they also automatically qualified for Marble League 2018. The team followed this up with a world victory tour. It was such a big deal that they closed the O'Marbles farm for a month and invited their entire family on the trip, causing a month-long decline in orange production.

2018

Tangerin flying across the finish line in Race B in Snow Rally in ML 2018

Orangin joined the team as the reserve in 2018. The year started with the Friendly Round, where the O'rangers came in third. But that didn't matter much as the team emerged as the most consistent of all competing teams in Marble League 2018, finishing within the top half in ten out of the twelve events. In the first nine events, they only scored a bottom half finish once in Event 3, Halfpipe. Tangerin competed in Snow Rally. In Race A Tangerin held the lead for a while but got overtaken by Whizzy from the Savage Speeders, and got passed by Pinkydink from Pinkies and finished in third. In Race B Tangerin managed to fly across the finish line and finished 9th. Tangerin got 5th in this event. O'rangers finished 4th eventually.Just like the previous year, the team used the strategy of conserving their energy. They eventually claimed their only medal of the season, a silver, in Event 10, Biathlon, taking them to 2nd place overall.

During the offseason, the O'rangers trained at their O'raceway track and participated in the Amazing Maze Marble Race. The team managed to come in second in the maze. The team had put in a bid to host Marble League 2019, which they lost to the Oceanics. But this left open one pre-qualifying spot for the O'rangers to claim.

2019

O'rangers losing to Green Ducks in the final anchor in Relay Run

The O'rangers, along with their new coach Rango, arrived at the Seven Seas Stadium for the Friendly Round before Marble League 2019. Orangin performed poorly in the first event, Funnel Race. However, the team were able to win two of the events, namely Block Pushing and Underwater Race. This put the team in second place, just one point behind the Oceanics. However, the O'rangers started off poorly as the former-champion ironically placed last after 2 events.The O'rangers followed this up with three middle of the pack finishes. However, in Event 6, Relay Run, the team earned a silver medal after beating the Pinkies in a tiebreaker race-off in the semifinals, moving the team up to 9th overall.

Despite their strong performances in the next three events, the team fell to eleventh. After Event 10, Hubelino Maze, the team rose back to ninth, but a streak of poor results followed. In Event 13, Elimination Race, Mandarin crashed out of their heat, making the team fall back to 11th. However, they did earn an extra two consolation points due to a track defect.Unfortunately, a disappointing eleventh place finish in Surfing by Tangerin confirmed the O'rangers would no longer be able to finish in the top three. The next event was Collision, where the team admittedly had never got past the quarterfinals. However, they impressed the fans by winning the event, earning their first gold medal since 2017. The team jumped to 7th place overall. Along with this gold medal, they had a strong end to the season with a fourth place finish for Kinnowin in the final event, Sand Rally, finishing in 6th place overall. Through the struggles, the team had grown even stronger.

2020

Tangerin getting the lead for O'rangers in Newton's Cradle in ML 2020

The O'rangers held their same five members approaching Marble League 2020, and entered the Marble League qualifiers for the first time since 2017. At the beginning, they did terrible as they were just hovering above the line between qualifying and not qualifying. However, their form picked back up and eventually finishing 8th in the Qualifiers. The O'rangers started Marble League 2020 with a 10th place finish in Balancing. However, a 3-event long podium streak, including Tangerin and Clementin's gold in Newton's Cradle, brought them to the top of the Marble League, surpassing the Minty Maniacs, who had the best start to a Marble League in history. Two back-to back bronze medals sent them top of the Marble League, although a 12th place finish caused the O'rangers to drop to second with a 9 point gap between them and first place. But then, in the High Jump event, Mandarin won the event as their title contenders Savage Speeders finished last, causing the lead to be extended to 35 points.

O'rangers lose to Oceanics in Team Aquathlon

However, a terrible 11th place finish in the Team Aquathlon, losing out to the Oceanics, whom was notorious for their poor performance in water events, followed up by an abysmal 16th place finish in Collision, saw them dropping to 2nd, 5 points behind the now-leaders and bitter rivals, Savage Speeders. In the last event, Kinnowin is unable to successfully to assert control in the Marathon event, and they lost out to the Savage Speeders by 7 points, finishing in 2nd.
