Full list of appearances
Maligore, known as The Great Flame of Destruction, was an ancient, lava-like demon entombed on the Island of Muranthias thousands of years ago by the ancestors of the alien wizard Lerigot. Divatox wanted to resurrect Maligore, then wed him so they could control the universe together. His temple is guarded by the indigenous people of Muranthias called the Malachians.
Divatox sacrificed Kimberly Hart and Jason Lee Scott to Maligore's pit of flames, Kimberly and Jason were both returned as evil beings but when Lerigot freed them from the evil, an enraged Maligore awakened and rose from the lava. After pummeling the Turbo Rangers, he became enormous and battled their Turbo Megazord. Though he was clearly the stronger combatant, the Megazord managed to knock the demon off a cliff and into the sea, slaying Maligore and ruining Divatox's plan.
The Grand Monarch of Evil, Dark Specter, looked exactly like Maligore, but had the ability to speak and was far more powerful. Their similarity was even commented upon by Divatox, saying "You remind me of my Fiancee".
Powers and abilities
Maligore could turn people evil (at least while he was in his pit), grow to giant size, and he could project flames from his claws (at least in giant form). He also appeared to be resistant to the Rangers' laser attacks.
Behind the Scenes
- The resemblence between Maligore and Dark Specter is due to the Maligore costume used in TAPRM's being reused for Dark Specter.
