Character History

to be added

Personality

Zack is filled with bravo and swagger. He is tough and cool on the exterior but has many layers beyond his fearless appearance. Zack advertises everything about himself, except the truth, which makes him feel deeply inferior to all his peers.[1]

Zack struggles with the stress of his mother's illness, and he often camps out in the wilderness and decomissioned traincars near his home, deeply terrified of waking up to find his mother dead, and so tries to live life far from home. Despite this tendency to avoid home, he truly loves his mother, often speaking to her in Chinese, playing chess with her by her side, and doing everything he can to take care of her.

However, Zack's public image is anything but that of the dutiful son that he is. In his public life, Zack is cocky, rebellious, and eager for a life unlike his own. He is hyperactive, boisterous, and fun-loving.

He also has something of a combative side, as he and Jason come to blows when Zack nearly kills the team while test-driving the Mastodon Zord in the mountains. In the end, the two are in awe of Billy's first time morphing into a full Ranger.

Zack is unorthodox, creative, and perceptive. The latter trait is evidenced when he deduces Trini's sexual orientation despite the fact that she had told no one of it, showing his social intelligence.

Black Ranger

Arsenal

  • Black Power Coin: Zack's supernatural crystal, which is the source of his powers, and his ability to morph.

Zords

  • Black Mastodon Battle Zord: Zack's alien battle vehicle, very powerful, yet hard to control, with Zack only being able to control his Zord after gaining full access to his morphing capability.

Powers and Abilities

  • Power Ranger Physiology: After receiving his Black Ranger power coin, Zack gained the following superpowers:
    • Super Strength: Zack has a considerable level of superhuman strength, to the point that he can easily break a washstand with his bare hand.
      • Super Leaps: Zack is able to use his superhuman strength to perform super jumps, shown when he leaped over a large abyss.
    • Super Durability: Zack's body is superhumanly durable, to the point that he cannot be physically harmed by ordinary humans.
    • Super Climbing: Zack is superhumanly skilled at climbing, notably scaling a steep cliff in mere seconds.
    • Morphing: Zack, upon finally gaining access to this power, is capable of morphing his body into a suit of powerful black armor.
  • Skilled Combatant: Zack, following team training sessions with Zordon and Alpha 5 eventually became fairly skilled in alien martial arts, and thus managed to defeat many of Rita Repulsa's Putty troops.
  • Bilingual: Zack is fluent in American English as well as Mandarin Chinese. He presumably learned Mandarin from his mother, who like him, is of Chinese descent.
