"I call on the power of Titanus and the Ultrazord!"

Titanus is a giant brachiosaurus Carrierzord used by the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.

Overview

Titanus served as the Carrierzord for the Dinozords, Ninjazords, and Shogunzords. Titanus would roll through a misty swamp after being summoned. When fighting individually, he would usually fire blasts out of his mouth Gung Ho! Stop the Hate Master but could move his tail into two shoulder cannons as well. Doomsday The shoulder cannons were most prominently featured as part of the Ultrazord formations.

Tommy and Jason first encountered Titanus when he was guarding the Thunder Slingers they needed to fight the Super Putty Patrollers. He attacked them, forcing the two to outsmart him to claim the weapons. Jason later believed he was a villain but Zordon calls him a powerful ally and friend, implying the Zord may be sentient. Gung Ho!

When the Rangers had trouble defeating the Wheel of Misfortune they called Titanus and the Mega Dragonzord docked into his back to form Ultrazord for the first time. Wheel of Misfortune Titanus would appear whenever the Ultrazord was needed.

During the Rangers' battle with Cyclopsis, Rita caused him to sink underground and the Rangers feared he had been destroyed. However, Zordon was able to retrieve Titanus and re-energize him in time to aid in defeating Cyclopsis and Lokar. Doomsday

After Tommy's return as the Green Ranger, Titanus would typically arrive after bursting through a rock face rather than the swamp. Return of an Old Friend

When the Rangers got their Thunderzords in Season 2, Titanus did not appear and was replaced by Tor the Shuttlezord.

In Season 3, Titanus returned and was modified by Alpha 5 to combine with the Ninjazords and later the Shogunzords. Final Face-OffThe Sound of Dischordia Titanus also battled Hate Master solo alongside the Ninjazords. Stop the Hate Master

Titanus's current whereabouts are unknown. He was not used by the Aquitar Rangers and during "A Zeo Beginning," Tommy mentions that the Zords are "gone." A Zeo Beginning

Billy makes an offhand comment in "Mondo's Last Stand" about recycling parts of "old Zords"; however it is unclear whether this refers to MMPR-era Zords like Titanus or unused components used to construct the Zeozords, which were "old" compared to the newly-acquired Super Zeozords.Mondo's Last Stand


Dino Ultrazord

See also: Ultimate Daizyujin

The Ultrazord - the "ultimate battle system" of the Power Rangers, is the combined form of all seven of the zords the Power Rangers possessed in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.

The Dino Ultrazord forms in two ways, either with Mega Dragonzord descending onto the opened hatch behind Titanus, or with the Dino Megazord hitching a ride onto Titanus' back with the Dragonzord forming on top.

To form Dino Ultrazord, many Zord parts come off and switch positions. Titanus' claws clasp onto Megazord's hands, Dragonzord's chestpiece docks in front of Titanus, Titanus's chest armor comes onto Megazord's chest and Titanus' tail splits and reconnects onto its shoulders as cannons (although on TV it's shown as sliding forward).

The Ultrazord's blasts are centered on the following areas. The Megazord then appears to be harnessing the two new zords' powers as a finisher weapon.

  • Dragonzord's fingers
  • Titanus' mouth
  • Titanus' shoulder cannons
  • Titanus' chest plate

Ninja Ultrazord

Ninja Ultrazord

When the Ninja Megafalconzord combines with the original Carrier Zord Titanus, the Ninja Ultrazord is formed. It could channel the power of all seven Zords and fire stronger mouth and shoulder mounted blasters.

The only enemy it was used against was Face Stealer.







Shogun Ultrazord

Shogun Ultrazord

When the Shogun Megafalconzord combines with the Titanus, the Shogun Ultrazord is formed. The only enemy it was used against was Dischordia.

Notes

  • In certain versions of "Doomsday, Part 1," Zordon is heard summoning Titanus to the battlefield himself.Doomsday
  • The footage of Titanus breaking through rocks and the Dragonzord-last Ultrazord assembly sequence was created for Zyu2. Season 3 appearances of Titanus reused the original Zyuranger footage of the swamp.
  • Both the Ninja and Shogun Ultrazords were formations exclusive to Power Rangers. Kakuranger did not have its own carrier beast like Zyuranger (Titanus) and Dairanger (Tor) did. The Zord was formed by filming the Bandai America toys, hence why the Shogun Ultrazord and Dischordia never appeared in the same shot, why the White Shogunzord is pink in any shot of the Megazord, and why the designs on the Shogun Megazord's chest and shoulders were replaced by thunderbolts.
  • The Dragonzord chestpiece appeared on the Ninja and Shogun Ultrazord despite the Zord itself not being available to the Rangers at the time. No explanation is given for this. However, later seasons stated that old Zords are salvaged for parts, and Titanus is implied to have been upgraded, so it is possible Dragonzord was salvaged to upgrade Titanus during season 3.[Citation needed]
  • Titanus and Tor are the only Zords in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers that have no discernible cockpit, making them the only Zords in the first three seasons that cannot be piloted directly.
  • In the Japanese dub, Ultrazord was named as Mega Ultrazord, while Ultrazord was the name given to Mega Dragonzord in the dub.
