The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, also known as the Power Rangers are "teenagers with attitude" that Zordon recruited to battle Rita Repulsa using the power that they wield with their Power Morphers and Power Coins. They developed a strong sense of unity, but whenever one had to move on with his or her life, Zordon appointed new ones to take over.

Team History

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers

When Rita Repulsa and her minions were freed from their imprisonment on the moon, Zordon took action to prevent her from taking over the Earth unchallenged. Instructing Alpha 5 to recruit "five teenagers with attitude," he chose Jason, Billy, Trini, Kimberly, and Zack to receive the five Power Coins in his possession and become Power Rangers. These five rangers thwarted many of Rita's plots, but nearly met defeat when Rita used a sixth Power Coin to transform Tommy into her own evil Green Ranger. Tommy succeeded in cutting off communications with Zordon and trapping the Rangers' Zords before unleashing his own Dragonzord. However, Alpha was able to restore the Command Center's link with Zordon, who helped bring the Zords back, allowing the Rangers to defeat Dragonzord. Once Jason destroyed Tommy's Sword of Darkness, Tommy was freed from Rita's control, and immediately became a new member of the team.

Rita soon set out to take revenge on her former minion, using the Green Candle in an attempt to drain away Tommy's powers. The Rangers managed to stop her by having Tommy give his Power Coin to Jason, preventing Rita from draining way his powers. However, Tommy later reassumed the green powers after Rita managed to steal the ohter five Power Coins. As a result, his powers remained weak for some time, which would make him a target when Lord Zedd usurped control of Rita's forces. Eventually Tommy lost the Green Ranger powers, while the other Rangers upgraded their Dino Zords into the Thunder Zords. The continual threat of Lord Zedd, however, prompted Zordon and Alpha to create a new set of White Ranger powers, which were conferred upon Tommy due to his faithfulness in serving as the Green Ranger. He also became leader of the team, replacing Jason, who along with Zack and Trini later passed their powers on to new Rangers. This process would be accomplished using the Sword of Light, thus conferring Red, Black, and Yellow Ranger powers upon Rocky DeSantos, Adam Park, and Aisha Campbell.

Eventually, all six Rangers would lose their powers after Rito Revolto arrived and helped Zedd and Rita-the pair having married some time previously-destroy the Thunder Zords. As such, they were forced to seek out Ninjor, the creator of the Power Coins, in the Desert of Despair. Eventually, they convinced Ninjor of their sincerity, and he granted them new Ninja powers to replace their old ones. The Rangers were thus able to continue their battles against Rita and Zedd's forces for some time, even after Rita's father Master Vile arrived to bolster their forces. Another change to the team came when Kimberly gave up her powers to Katherine Hillard, another reformed minion of Rita's. However, as a result of Vile's tampering with time, the Power Coins were destroyed, leaving the Rangers without their Ninja powers. They were thus forced to utilize the Zeo Crystal to obtain new powers, becoming the Zeo Rangers. However, as there were only five pieces of the crystal, only five rangers could be empowered by them. Aisha's place on the team was taken by Tanya Sloan, while Billy stepped down to serve in a support role.

In Space, Wild Force, and Operation Overdrive

When most of the Zeo Rangers became Turbo Rangers who eventually gave way to the Space Rangers, the few holdouts from the original team ceased to be active Rangers. However, original Red Ranger Jason and Black Ranger Adam would later return utilizing their Power Coins to take on their old personas and help new groups of Rangers. Adam would be first, taking up his damaged Morpher to help Carlos Vallerte-who replaced him as the Green Turbo Ranger-in dealing with emotional issues surrounding his battles with Lizwizard. Adam's actions were dangerous, as using a damaged Morpher with a destroyed Power Coin had the potential to cause him serious harm. However, he made it through with momentary pain, and managed to help Carlos find his self-confidence again.

Jason later took up his Red Ranger mantle again as part of a team of Veteran Red Rangers formed in "Forever Red." This group consisting of Jason, Tommy, and every Red Ranger up to Cole Evans-minus Rocky, whose Red Ranger powers had been returned to Jason by unknown means-challenged the Machine Empire remnants under General Venjix. The group succeeded in defeating the general's forces, and Cole later destroyed Serpentera after Venjix succeeded in launching it. Some time later, Adam would lead a team of Retro Rangers-the other members being Bridge Carson, Xander Bly, Kira Ford, and Tori Hanson-who filled in for the Overdrive Rangers after Thrax, son of Rita and Zedd, sabotaged the Morphing Grid. On this occasion, Adam's powers-as well as those of Kira and Tori-were restored to him temporarily by the Sentinel Knight, who also summoned the five of them to help.

Notes

  • There are a total of seven rangers (by color) with only a maximum of six appearing at one time. However, the 3-parter "Return of the Green Ranger" allows there to be seven ranger colors in one show, although they don't all appear onscreen at the same time.
  • The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers are the first team to be produced by Saban, chronologically though, they are not the very first rangers ever. The Ancient Samurai Rangers have existed for centuries.
  • These were the first named rangers and as such are known typically by their color designation only. The rangers that followed had monikers associated to their team's name or the name of the show.
  • All seven rangers appeared in one episode of MMPR. Return of the Green Ranger
  • Mighty Morphin Power Rangers introduces the format of the first five Rangers beigin Red, Black, Blue, Yellow and Pink. This Format would be used by Space Rangers, Overdrive Rangers and  Mega Rangers
  • According to the "Reality Check" PSA of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Amy Jo Johnson, David Yost, and both their respective characters are accomplished martial artists and gymnasts.
  • Six video games based on this show were produced, one for Sega Genesis, one for Sega CD, one for Sega Game Gear, two for Super Nintendo Entertainment System (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Fighting Edition), and one for Game Boy.
  • Billy, the original Blue Ranger, has the distinction of being the only Ranger to hold the same position for the longest time (3 years, 1993-1996) without ever switching colors, a record yet to be surpassed. Similarly, he is the only original Power Ranger to appear in every episode of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and remain there from the start to the end of the MMPR generation.
  • In the comics, the Ninja forms are considered the base morphed state.
