- sentient robot, former Command Center and Power Chamber assistant (101-
DOTD through 503-SIT3)
Alpha Five, Zordon's Command Center assistant, thought that the earthquake caused by Rita's presence was "the big one" and that they'd all be

robotic head when the earthquake struck the Command
Alpha would use the exclamation "Ai yi yi" in moments which
invoked emotions of any kind, from panic to elation (most commonly panic); in more
extreme situations, the exclamation could contain four "yi"'s or, in rare cases, six
On Alpha's chest was a yellow stylized lightning bolt similar
to the Power Rangers' stylized lightning bolt symbol, but backwards.
Alpha didn't seem at all prepared for Rita's attack.
Zordon told Alpha to summon "five
overbearing and overemotional humans": teenagers.
Alpha was initially opposed to using teenagers as Rangers.
After the teens had teleported into the Command
Center, Alpha wasn't in sight until Billy began meddling
with the controls, at which point Alpha rushed out to stop him, tripping in the
Billy called Alpha a "fully-sentient,
Alpha's circuits overloaded from Kim's "not!" joke.
Alpha seemed to be unfamiliar with the concept of humor.
When the teens had arrived in the Command Center, Alpha asked the "homeboys" and
"homegirls" what had brought them to "the hood," and Zack told
him he'd been watching too much TV.
While Alpha was tinkering with the blue communicator, he suddenly began running randomly around
the Command Center.
Zordon and Alpha fixed the communicators, enabling the teens to communicate and teleport with them.
Unless Zack was exaggerating the urgency
of Alpha's request, Alpha had told Zack that he wanted to
talk with him about something extremely important, while all Alpha wanted was dance
Some time after the Rangers' battle with
the Minotaur, Alpha was so busy practicing
his dance steps that he kept shorting out the control panel, causing some static over

While Jason was fighting King Sphinx in the children's theater, Alpha
was in a panic because Jason was somehow isolated and contact
Alpha had Billy, Zack, Kim, and Trini put their hands together and bring forth their Power Crystals; then, following Zordon's instruction, Alpha
tapped the Morphing Grid and teleported the sack of Power
Crystals to Jason while merely holding the sack in his
Wearing a chef's hat and holding a hand mixer and a wooden
spoon, Alpha told the teens he would help them with the food
for the festival; either he was
late in offering help with the original food, or he was aware of the food fight that
had ruined much of the food.
Alpha made extra spicy subs to defeat Pudgy Pig a bit too late, but then teleported the trays to the teens to help out with the festival; he did so seemingly by force
of will while holding them.
It seemed as though Alpha teleported the teens right out
of the hallway at school without giving them any warning.
Zordon had Alpha go to a dimensional gap that contained a singing squash; though Alpha was reluctant,
he teleported by
pressing in his two lower yellow buttons on his chestplate, causing him to teleport in white energy to the dimensional gap.
Alpha's internal defense system was an electrical field which
shocked anyone who touched his head; it did so as he was surrounded by Putties while retrieving the singing squash.
After learning that Kim was in a
plane that was going down, Alpha told her to morph out of there if her life was in danger, but Bulk and Skull were also in the plane, unconscious.
Alpha and/or Zordon had sent a message
to Angel Grove Airport so there would be an ambulance waiting when the plane landed,
presumably because Alpha and Zordon had learned by then
that Steve (the pilot) was unconscious or hurt.
Alpha's lower chest lights were
momentarily red rather than yellow; this happened again in 110-FPIS, 115-SwPl, and 116-BigS.
Once Alpha had returned Sylvia to normal by dumping a bucket of water on her in Billy's garage, he muttered, "Detection alert," then, "Hiding," several times as he went to stand
motionless in the corner.
Except in a few shots throughout the episode, Alpha's torso had
a slightly different design, including lower yellow buttons which were far apart
rather than close; the frequency of the reappearances of the close yellow buttons
would slowly taper off until a last appearance in 246-
Upon discovering that the Genie's power source was the lamp, Alpha planned to "zap" it in the
When briefed on the dangers of improperly destroying the lamp, Alpha remarked, "saving a planet is certainly not as easy as it used to be."
Alpha made the magic
lamp dissolve with white energy from the Command
Center's teleporter; the giant Genie then
vanished in white energy as well.
Alpha was angry with Rita for capturing
Maria and suspending her from a rope so that the
Rangers would bring her the Power Eggs.
Alpha recharged at a stand with a red electrical orb suspended
at about head height; he was unaware of his surroundings and probably unconscious
Green Ranger inserted a
virus disc into the slot in the top of the yellow panel in Alpha's back; the slot was
vertical such that the disc had to be inserted downward into it.
Alpha had a recharge port under the back of his right shoulder
Alpha managed to send the teens a
warped, skipping transmission, despite being infected with a virus disc.
Billy's removal of the disc partially
cured Alpha, but his memory chips remained scrambled.
Alpha temporarily shut down when his quasitronic circuitry
Billy removed Alpha's backplate to make
repairs; he was soon online again and began searching for Zordon's signal.
Alpha hadn't seen Scorpina in over
ten thousand years.
Green Ranger shut Alpha down
by removing a small transparent clip from Alpha's lower back.
Alpha's backup systems kicked in as Green Ranger continued his efforts to banish Zordon to another dimension.
When the restrained Green
Ranger threatened Alpha, Alpha decided to see who he really was; Green Ranger escaped before Alpha had the chance.
Alpha asked Billy about the chances of
bringing Zordon back, and Billy said
Alpha's exaggerated pessimism ("Rita will
rule the world! She'll enslave mankind! She'll destroy the Command
Center again!") convinced the teens not to give up.
Alpha successfully re-established the computer linkup between the Command Center and Zordon.
Zordon was very proud of Alpha's
leadership capabilities in his absence.
Alpha said there was no known cure for Shellshock's stoplight freeze ray, but Zordon then spoke of the rare flower called the deandra which could reverse the effects of
After the battle with Spit Flower, Tommy
had Alpha help him put the finishing touches on the model float he was rebuilding for
Kim in Billy's garage.
Alpha didn't know the names of the tools Tommy was using.
Alpha casually strolled into the masquerade party in the Youth Center; he'd wanted to party with the teens, and he figured the party would be the perfect
opportunity, as everyone was wearing a disguise.
Alpha wasn't shown in the Command Center when the teens teleported in, but he was then present despite having
been at the masquerade party earlier.
Alpha's head spun around when Zordon
described the Super Putties.
Not seeing Alpha at the masquerade
party after the Rangers' battle with the Frankenstein monster, Billy wondered what had happened to Alpha, yet Alpha had been in
the Command Center for the teens' debriefing about the Super
Once Alpha was shown at the party again, Kim called him by name in front of other people at the party.
Ernie awarded the blue ribbon for the
costume contest to Alpha.
Alpha left the Youth Center
pursued by three girls, Bulk, and Skull.
Smoke was coming from Alpha as he
watched the Rangers being transported to the Island of Illusion.
Alpha tried to boost their signal to the Island of Illusion by rerouting the
main computer's microflux transponder; in trying this, he
accidentally blew a fuse, causing him to yelp in pain.
When Alpha tried the bypass circuit, the controls repeatedly
zapped Alpha's posterior with white energy bolts.
When Alpha touched a button on the supposedly repaired control
panel, a spark sent him running out of control through the Command Center; Alpha then kicked the control panel,
causing it to smoke from the bottom.
Zordon and Alpha had encountered Cyclopsis ten thousand years ago.
After Rita had summoned Lokar and used his power to reconstruct Cyclopsis, Alpha was scanning the computer memory for more data on Lokar while Zordon had
the teens wait for their Zords to
Alpha discovered that because Rita was
on Earth, the Command Center
computer was able to penetrate her data bank, giving them
access to her files of spells and secrets and allowing them to reduce her power or
even stop her altogether.
After the Rangers' victory, Alpha,
holding a gold handkerchief, sneezed and explained that he'd caught a computer virus.
Alpha called Zordon "Sir."
Alpha designed a spray to temporarily relieve Jason from his itching spell, but the spray wore off when morphed
Jason fought Fighting Flea.
Alpha made a chemical coating that would shield the Rangers' suits from Jellyfish; when he applied it to the suits,
they temporarily sparkled with rapid, thin, white lines.
Alpha said he was Billy's friend.
Under Rita's spell, Billy deactivated Alpha by ripping something black from Alpha's
backside; Trini later reactivated him.
Alpha thought for the teens to use
their Power Coins to bring back Zordon.
Alpha said that Zordon's return was
too emotional for his robotic neurons.
Alpha made a blue device bearing the Triceratops symbol to blow foam on Grumble Bee, presumably to disrupt his
ability to generate sonic attacks.
Alpha watched the filming of Kim's
episode of Trick or Treat on the Viewing Globe.
When the Rangers retreated after being
blasted by the weapons of the Mutant
Rangers, it was revealed that Alpha had prepared new and more powerful Power Weapons (which looked identical to the old ones) in
case of such an emergency; the new weapons appeared in the Rangers' hands in their respective energy colors, with Tommy also getting a
new Dragon Dagger.
Alpha said Zedd's power was
unmatched by anything they'd ever seen before.
After Pirantishead had frozen four of the Dinozords and taken control of the Tyrannosaurus and Dragonzord, Zordon said it was
fortunate that they'd anticipated Zedd's return and had
Alpha prepare for "phase two."
After Zordon had told the Rangers about the need for new Zords, Alpha walked the helmetless Rangers outside of the Command
Center, where the five seemingly immaterial Thunderzords flew overheard through a dark, stormy sky.
When the Rangers prepared to assemble
the Power Blaster to stall for time, Alpha
was afraid that the Rangers would destroy the evil Zords and thus be unable to control the Thunderzords; the Rangers ended up
aiming the Power Blaster at the Zords briefly but then firing at Pirantishead instead.
Following Zordon's instructions after
Zedd had stripped the Dinozords
of their power and sunk them into a lava pit, Alpha managed to save enough of the Dinozords to create the Thunderzords.
Alpha excitedly cheered for the Rangers
as they powered up their Thunderzords, causing Zordon to chuckle.
After Zordon had de-ionized and the teens had left, Alpha moped about being left alone in the "big,
scary Command Center."
Alpha was bored, so he looked at the park in the Viewing
Globe; upon seeing young Dylan having lost his
mother, Alpha decided he didn't need the Rangers to save the
day, so he teleported with white energy by pressing his two yellow chest buttons,
first declaring, "Alpha Ranger to the rescue!"
Alpha appeared from white energy, sitting down, on the park trail directly in front of Bulk and Skull, who then ran away
Alpha told Dylan, "I'm
Alpha Five, Command Center prototype."
Alpha wasn't familiar with soccer.
as Billy, reprimanded Alpha and tried to get him to take him
to the Command Center.
Primator was unable to hold his illusion upon
seeing his reflection in the top of Alpha's head, but Alpha's head was a dull gold
color, not at all reflective.
When Primator grabbed
Alpha and demanded that he take him to the Command
Center, Alpha activated his self-destruct program with his center, small, oblong
buttons, sending tiny pink specks flickering across his body, and he then grew prone.
There were over ten minutes in Alpha's self-destruct timer.
Billy used the controls on Alpha's
chest to disarm his self-destruct sequence with two seconds remaining.
Although he knew Alpha had meant well, Zordon reprimanded Alpha for leaving the Command Center without telling the teens.
When Trini joked that she thought Alpha
would be grounded for a few thousand years, he was upset that he'd never learn to play
Alpha had soaked the enchanted shades in a special energy beam
so that when Zack and Billy put them
on, they removed the hallucination spell over the two teens.
Alpha told Kim that reenergizing Tommy the way they had done before was no longer an option.
Tommy told Kim the results of Alpha's bioscan on him would come in the
When Zordon told Tommy the next day that their last effort to restore his powers had failed, Alpha was still attempting to
pinpoint the source of the hologram from the future.
As the teens' plan to find Tommy to cheer Jason up had been
interrupted by Goldar, Alpha located Tommy on the Viewing Globe after
the Rangers had escaped from the Dimension of Doom.
When Alpha pointed out that all was safe and secure in Angel Grove, Zordon suggested they
use the lull to prepare for the secret mission they had to embark upon; he had Alpha
ready the master control panel and prepare to transport into the hidden chamber.
After Alpha adjusted the controls, Zordon's image dispersed into his side cylinders, and after
saying preparations were complete, Alpha walked through a doorway of light which had
Before entering the doorway of light, Alpha remarked to
himself, "This is so exciting. I can't believe the big day is finally here."
While creating the White
Ranger, Alpha was walking around in the hidden chamber, beside the table on which
White Ranger was lying, but Zordon couldn't be seen as he gave instructions to Alpha and
participated in the Ranger-creation process.
? Watching through a ceiling grate
of the hidden chamber, Billy remarked to himself fairly loudly about Zordon and Alpha creating a new Ranger;
it seemed as though Zordon and Alpha should have been able to
In the Command Center after the
completion of the White Ranger, Alpha brought the
master control panel back online and restored full power; Zordon then reappeared in his tube from his side cylinders;
Alpha, excited, told him everything was ready and that it was time to summon the Rangers.
When the teens were delighted to
discover that Tommy was the White Ranger, Alpha pretended to rub his eyes and
sighed happily at all the human emotion.
The Thunderzords had been
damaged in the fight with giant Nimrod in 217-WhL1; Zordon had Billy and Trini teleport to the damaged Zords to begin repair on them, saying Alpha would provide
them with all the information they needed; the Assault Team later appeared to be repaired by
the end of White Ranger's fight with giant Nimrod.
When Tommy, Kim, and Billy needed the help of Jason, Zack, and Trini, who had no one to take care of the kids they were
chaperoning, Alpha went to take the three chaperoning teens'
places; since it was Halloween, he was able to pass undetected.
After Tommy, Kim, and Billy had called the Command Center following the abduction of Rocky, Adam, Aisha, and Mr. Anderson,
Zordon told Alpha to use his scanners to locate Trini, Zack, and Jason, then teleport them to the
Command Center immediately; this would have given the
three no time to move to a discreet location.
Zordon said it was imperative they
establish the location coordinates of the kidnapped Rocky, Adam, Aisha, and Mr. Anderson; when the computer reported that they were in a closed area in another
dimension, Alpha realized they must've been taken to
Zedd's "Dimension of Despair."
When Zordon pointed out after the
destruction of Hatchasaurus the
continued need for the Rangers to attend to both Terror Blossom and the captured Stone Canyon teens, Alpha had the
Rangers split up into two teams again.
Saying Rocky, Adam, and Aisha were the only other people
to know the identities of the Power
Rangers, Zordon told the three that Alpha had conducted
an analysis on their background and determined them to be model citizens: loyal, fair,
and trustworthy; he then had them take the following vow: "I swear upon the forces of
goodness to maintain the secret of the true identities of
the Power Rangers."
After Goldar and Scorpina had grown, Zordon, fearing
the Tigerzord and Thunder
Megazord wouldn't be strong enough, had Alpha boost the power output of the Thunder Ultrazord.
Alpha was looking forward to surprising the Rangers with the Power Cannon, which
he was constructing in the Command Center.
In reference to three of the teens
having been demorphed and given amnesia by Scatterbrain, Alpha admitted to Zordon that he'd never been so worried.
When Alpha exclaimed "Ai yi yi" while watching the Megatigerzord battle giant Cannontop, Zordon
gave him a brief speech about having faith in Tommy's ability
to lead the Power Rangers to victory.
Alpha didn't seem familiar with the Bookala.
From the Command Center, Alpha
monitored Zedd's recharging of Serpentera.
Sensing a disturbance in the Earth's
rotation, caused by the Rock of Time, Alpha
programmed the computer to monitor the teens while he tried to fix the Earth's
Zordon had Alpha construct a remote molecular descrambler device to restore the
six kids back to teens.
Alpha was terrified by their current predicament.
Zordon sent Alpha to the park with the
laser stun scanner to stop Goldar from taking from young Bulk and Skull the photograph in which the six kids were trapped.
Alpha teleported with white
Alpha used the laser stun scanner to temporarily freeze Goldar and Photomare
in their tracks with white energy.
A bit later, Alpha teleported
into the main hallway in Angel Grove High School in front of Mr. Caplan, carrying his descrambler instead of the stun device; Mr. Caplan said hello, then Alpha realized he'd teleported to the wrong hallway and vanished.
Alpha had mentioned teleporting into the wrong hallway, but he then teleported into Miss
Appleby's room (where young Bulk and Skull were), which was off the main hallway which
he called the wrong one.
Alpha used the laser stun scanner to cause young Bulk and Skull to fall asleep and lose their recent
When Zordon spoke to Alpha remotely,
the kids, near Alpha, could hear the transmission.
Alpha missed the teens while they were
Alpha went for a little walk outside when Zordon told him they shouldn't have to worry about any
emergencies while the teens were gone.
There were some wildflowers in the desert around the Command
Center, but Alpha noted that it was still quite barren, so he tapped into the Morphing Grid and caused some flowers to emerge from the
With two Putties to hold Alpha, Finster teleported to the area where Alpha was outside the Command Center and forcefully inserted a virus disc which
turned Alpha evil.
Evil Alpha had the teens morph and teleport to
the abandoned Spectre Theater (secretly a power
vortex) in downtown Angel Grove, then wait for further
Evil Alpha shut down Zordon's
communicator so he couldn't warn the teens, then soon muted
Zordon so he didn't have to listen to him.
Evil Alpha made a blue moustache, a headband of flowers, blue
hair, and old-fashioned glasses appear on Zordon's image.
Watching the Rangers fight a slew of monsters in the Spectre
Theater, evil Alpha remarked that it was better than cable TV, and cheaper as well.
When Zordon referred to the Rangers as Alpha's friends, evil Alpha laughed at the idea, since
the Rangers were always teleporting here and there, getting all the glory, but
now, he said, he would be famous for destroying the Rangers.
Evil Alpha secretly teleported
Bulk and Skull into the Outback in Australian
Evil Alpha made Zordon dissolve with
white energy into his side columns.
Evil Alpha remotely cut off the Zords' power supply, suddenly shutting down all power to
the shields, allowing the reactor (presumably the Thunder Megazord's) to take a major hit.
Evil Alpha then teleported the
Rangers back to the Spectre
When the alarm sounded, evil
Alpha knew that it meant Zedd must have sent monsters and Putties to guard the
Rangers in the theater.
Evil Alpha gloated that the Command
Center would be all his, then said he thought he liked this bad guy stuff.
and Zedd had married, evil Alpha grabbed his buttocks and
shrieked, then said something big must be happening on the moon.
Evil Alpha threatened to ionize the whole Command Center when Billy
approached him, but Billy successfully removed the virus disc,
reverting Alpha to normal.
Alpha later teleported Bulk and
Skull back to where they had been earlier, back in their normal clothes.
When Zordon described the wizard as his old rival, the Wizard of Deception, Alpha exclaimed that there was
no telling what he'd do.
Following Billy's idea, Alpha created a
handheld electromagnet with a range of ten yards for White Ranger to use to retrieve Saba from Rita.
Alpha temporarily had a thin black tube connecting his helmet
to his back.
An Alpha was in the Command Center in the year 1880, but based on Alpha
Five's calculated age (see below), this was probably Alpha Four, later shown to be
deactivated in the Command Center basement in present
The lower yellow lights on 1880's Alpha's chestplate were far apart, while early Alpha Five had
had close lights but later changed to this form.
Alpha was sitting on the step leading to the Viewing Globe, very sad; he explained to Zordon that he'd been monitoring the galactic scanner when he picked up a distress signal
Edenoi was the home
planet of Alpha Five.
Alpha's memory banks contained many fond memories
Edenoi's leader, had assembled and given life
to Alpha Five; since Edenoite generations were apparently
no longer than a century, Alpha must have been created in the 20th century and merely
shared the memories of Alphas before him.
Alpha was distressed because his scan had detected no trace of Lexian, and Edenoi appeared to be under heavy attack.
Billy was surprised that Alpha, a robot, sounded
sad, but Alpha had on many occasions demonstrated the capacity for
Alpha said Lexian was like a father to him.
Alpha was deeply touched by the teens willingness to investigate the situation on
Edenoi for his sake.
Tommy explained to Dex that they'd come because their friend "Alpha
Five" had believed the Edenoites were in
danger, and Dex replied that friends of "Alpha"
were friends of theirs.
Alpha was frustrated
because, as he said, they'd never been out of contact with the Rangers for so long, but the communicators' new chips were supposed to
allow communication over the distance to Edenoi.
Alpha and Zordon had
found a map to Ninjor's temple when they'd originally found the Power Coins; based on Alpha's calculated age, this had to
have been a previous Alpha.
When the teens
convinced Zordon to allow Alpha to give the teens the map to the temple, Alpha handed the map to Billy.
After repairing the Viewing Globe, Alpha recognized the Tenga Warriors on sight, and he knew Rito's full name.
Alpha recognized the Vampirus monster on sight.
Scanning the liquids into which five of the Rangers had been transformed, Alpha said he didn't
have the formulas in his memory banks for the type of conversion that
would turn the Rangers back to normal and that he
hadn't been programmed for this.
Alpha's power source was independent from the Command Center.
Trying to think of an explanation for the
shutdown of the Command Center and Zordon, Alpha realized there was only one person
familiar with their entire command system: Billy.
When Zedd's monster Hate Master was spreading hate
throughout Angel Grove, Alpha said he hated
Zedd, but then he took it back, since that's
what Zedd wanted.
Aisha thought for Alpha
to use his internal power to teleport
her out of the Command Center.
When Aisha activated the
feed between Alpha and the Command
Center computer (a length of
wire running from the computer, up
the bottom of Alpha's chestplate) with one of the round buttons on his
chest, Alpha was able to pinpoint the source of the power blockage,
coming from the Juice Bar.
Alpha didn't have enough power to get Aisha all the way to the Juice Bar, but he did have the power to teleport her to the park.
Since the Face Stealer was clearly a
dangerous monster, Zordon said the Rangers would need the added power of Titanus to defeat him, then asked Alpha if he had
made all the necessary modifications to accommodate the Ninja Ultrazord; Alpha was still
Searching for a power source that could
substitute for Kimberly's stolen Power Coin, Alpha said he was so nervous that
all the silicone [sic] was sweating out of his central processor.
Timidly poking his head out from behind a console
after being forced to teleport Zedd into the Command Center, Alpha called Zedd "Ed," as though he knew that Rito's calling him "Ed" bothered him.
Alpha said Zordon was
When told to contact the teens, Alpha hoped they weren't off scuba diving.
Zordon told the Rangers that to stop the Crabby Cabbie, they would
have to surround him from all sides, and to do that, they would need
faster, new vehicles; Alpha knew that
Zordon was referring to the new Shark Cycles without his even
mentioning the vehicles' names.
Seeing the Shark Cycles for the first time,
Billy told Alpha he'd really outdone himself (although it hadn't yet been stated that Alpha had created the cycles).
Alpha told the Rangers
that he'd equipped the Shark
Cycles with several battle features, should they find themselves in
Kim had Alpha teleport
Kat to the Command
Center to be the new Pink Ranger,
having asked Alpha and Kat to be ready in case the teens and Zordon had
convinced her to go to Florida to train for the Pan Global Games.
On Christmas Eve, the Command Center's interior was decorated
with an assortment of Christmas decorations.
arrival on the moon temporarily disabled Alpha,
as well as the Command Center's lights
Perhaps having anticipated Master Vile's arrival, Zordon and Alpha had been working on the Metallic Armor to protect the Rangers in battle.
As Master Vile
worked to summon the Orb of Doom on the moon, a gravitational disturbance from the moon decalibrated the Command Center's instruments; Alpha and Zordon were both concerned by the activity.
The Orb of Doom had
reverted the Command Center to its past
form, but Alpha and Zordon retained their
memories of the present.
At this point in the past, Alpha and Zordon had been spring cleaning, and Alpha had
unplugged the control panel (thus deactivating the Command Center) to plug in the vacuum
When Zordon refused to
give the six kids powers, young Billy mentioned that they needed more Rangers, prompting Alpha to think to call the Aquitian Rangers; Zordon
had thought of this, but he knew Earth's
atmosphere would be inhospitable to them and that they would be putting
their lives at great risk; the six kids
convinced him to call the Aquitians
Alpha told Zordon that
the Aquitian Rangers would want them to
call them for help.

been planted outside the Command Center,

should happen to him.
the six kids out of the Command Center after young Aisha had told him they loved him; only once the kids were gone did he say he loved them too.
Outside, Alpha nervously used a device to
deactivate the implosion
device's main core with purple energy, then he snipped a wire on the
stopping the fuse in its tracks.
While defusing the implosion device, Alpha was
sweating, and he wiped off his visor with a small hand wiper blade.

and Alpha expressed no surprise that Billy's age had been
restored. (Submitted by "Josh G.")
Billy gave credit to
Alpha for helping him to assemble four of the five Zeo Subcrystals.
After the Zeo
Crystal had restored time, the five teens teleported
to the lake to say goodbye to
the Aquitian Rangers while Tanya stayed with Alpha for him to begin explaining
all of the details of being a Ranger.
Alpha was explaining to Tanya, "Morphing is when
you..." when Rito and Goldar teleported into the Command Center and stole the Zeo Crystal; Alpha suddenly shouted, "Ai yi
yi! Intruder alert! Intruder alert!"
When explosions began rocking the Command Center after Rito and Goldar had left
and the teens had returned, Zordon and Alpha ordered the six teens to evacuate, but they wouldn't leave, not
wanting to leave Alpha behind; Alpha used the controls to teleport the teens to an area within view of the Command Center's mountain.
As the Command
Center continued to explode, Alpha looked up at Zordon's tube, in which Zordon may or may not have been at the time, and
screamed, "Ai yi yi yi yi! Zordon, I don't
know what to do! Ai yi yi yi yi!!"
In Tommy's flashback of the destruction of the Command Center, Alpha's voice was
momentarily slurred, covering up his "I don't know what to do" line
which he had originally said in 343-HdA2.
(Note: There were two versions of this episode, one of which did not
have this flashback.)
After the Zeo
Crystal had sent the six teens falling into
the Command Center basement and begun reconstructing the Command Center exterior, the teens wandered through the tunnels in search of the source of a loud
clunk and a vibrating noise; they soon heard Alpha's echoing voice
(seemingly coming from above) saying, "Re-established communication with
data pathways. Serial port enabled."
Immediately afterward, Alpha exclaimed, "Ai yi
yi!" just before the tunnels quaked with
what seemed an explosion; around that time, the Command Center exterior had been completely
rebuilt, and Billy theorized that the noise had
been the foundation re-settling.
When the six teens
appeared in the Power Chamber after
stepping into the vortex as he had verbally instructed them, Alpha
emerged from the Alpha-shaped recess in the wall (beside Zordon's new tube) and greeted them.
Alpha explained, "The Power Chamber has always been here. We knew
there could be a time when the Command
Center would become vulnerable to an attack."
When the teens asked about Zordon,
Alpha nervously (almost sadly) apologized deeply and realized he should
have told them the news right away; in the continuation of this scene in
402-AZB2, however, his reply to the teens' same inquiry was different, as he
cheerfully told them Zordon was just fine.
Zordon asked the six teens how they liked his and Alpha's surprise, the
Power Chamber; he told them that Alpha
had been working on it for months.
The teens' battery of
questions about the Machine Empire made
Alpha temporarily short out, begin to smoke, and shoot sparks from the
bump on his head.
When, perhaps another day, at the outdoor cafe, Tommy
asked what they would do if the Machine
Empire launched a full assault since the old Zords were gone, Billy replied, "We're working on that. You won't
believe what we came up with."; apparently, he had been collaborating
with Zordon and/or Alpha in working on the Zeozords.
Billy and Alpha were
shown walking in from the direction of the Power Chamber's east entrance as Billy protested the Rangers' using the Zeozords before they could be tested.
Excited along with Alpha about the new Zeo Battle Helmets, Billy remarked that he and the others could've used
the helmets back in "the old days"; Alpha joked that it was a shame
they'd had to get by with only bows and arrows.
When the Rangers needed
to use the Battle Helmets without
first testing them, Alpha tried to warn that the helmets could backfire,
but Billy insisted there was no other choice.
After the teens had morphed to fight Boohoo and Cogs, Tommy told Kat to stay with Joey while he and the others did battle;
Alpha soon teleported in to take Kat's place to allow Kat to
join the others in battle.
Yellow energy bolts from a Cog's spear electrocuted Alpha, shorting him out.
Soon afterward, Billy was
running diagnostics on Alpha, who was now sitting up, deactivated, on
the Power Chamber's medical table.
Billy did something to
Alpha's chest to bring him back to life.
As the Rangers tested
the Zeo Jet Cycles around a lake, Kat noted that Billy and
Alpha had worked really hard on the bikes.
Billy told the Rangers that he and Alpha had been working on a
new device that might break up evil Puppetman's frequency; Alpha said
the Defender Wheel was designed to spin
at a certain RPM which would probably be able to counter Puppetman's frequency.
After the Rangers had
destroyed evil Puppetman, Alpha
reassembled the robot, this time with a deflector to prevent Mondo from regaining control.
Adam suggested taking a
sample of Rocky's mutant, metal-eating plant to Alpha to ask about it,
and then Rocky, apparently not having heard Adam, got the same idea, and they left to take the
sample to Alpha after Rocky had clipped off a
bit of its leaf.
Alpha said he'd never seen a computer virus quite
like Mean Screen's; it had
somehow managed to infiltrate the Power
Chamber's computer network and was spreading so quickly that he
couldn't isolate it long enough to destroy it; it kept branching into
Alpha had been working to reconfigure the Defender Wheel; after making it immune to
Mean Screen's virus, Alpha teleported it to the Rangers.
When Tommy teleported into the Power Chamber in the middle of the night,
Alpha was standing motionless in his recess in the wall, with a yellow
nightcap on his head; when Tommy woke him, Alpha
was startled, initially thinking that Tommy was
When the Rangers
considered the implications of Defector's possibly being truthful
in his rebellion from the Machine
Empire, Alpha noted that he would finally have some company of his
Billy and Alpha worked
together to complete the Zeo Cannon.
Around Christmastime, the Power Chamber's exterior had Christmas
lights all over it; inside was a Christmas tree, holly leaves, and
Christmas lights, and on the Pink
Ranger's head in the gallery was a Santa hat; there was a large red
bow on the base of Zordon's tube.
Alpha opened a large gold box from Zordon (who was smiling), and it was a pair of
bunny slippers which he loved.
Alpha's present to Zordon, something he'd programmed himself, was the
image of a Santa hat and red
scarf on Zordon's image; Zordon chuckled and thanked Alpha, saying it was
In the Power
Chamber after the Gold Ranger had
arrived and used Pyramidas to destroy giant
Wolfbane, Alpha told the teens that he didn't yet have any word on Billy; Billy then entered
the Power Chamber without any real
explanation for his absence during the Gold
When the teens went to
the Power Chamber for debriefing on the
latest monster, Somnibot, and discussed altering her
frequency, they wondered where Billy was; Alpha
said he was sure Billy would be there soon.
Alpha adjusted the Rangers' Zeo power frequencies to protect them
from Somnibot, but he needed Billy's help for one final calculation.
Gold Ranger knew Zordon and Alpha's names, leaving them to wonder
how he knew them.
Alpha accompanied the six Rangers
and Billy as they went outside into the mountains to look at the Super Zeozords for the first time. (Source: Submitted by
Alpha had a sense of scent; he was able to smell
that the Rangers stank from Stenchy's rank ray.
Alpha lamented that the Power Chamber felt so empty without Billy there; Zordon, after
agreeing, explained that it had been important for Billy to go to Triforia and help the Trey with their unification process.
As a temporary solution to allow the Rangers to use the Super Zeozords without Tommy, Alpha devised a remote much like the old Falconzord remote, allowing
Super Zeozord Five to fight giant Cruel Chrome with the other Super Zeozords.
Chrome (having been created from Detective
Stone's "wavejumper," as Alpha called it) was destroyed, Alpha
replaced the waverunner with an identical one.
Alpha was pleased when it appeared that the teens had stopped by the Power Chamber for a surprise visit; they
were actually there because of Tommy's suspicion
that time was repeating itself.
While Kat and old Billy went to the
Youth Center as Billy looked for a lost invention that might
reverse his rapid aging, the other teens worked
with various chemicals in the Power
Chamber; for no apparent reason, Alpha then rolled through the room
a skeleton display bearing a sign which read, "Very old."
Alpha ran a test on Jason
to determine the reason for the waning of the Gold Ranger powers.
The Rangers summoned
the Zeozords to fight giant Gasket and Archerina, but when the Zeo Megazord was quickly overpowered, Alpha
thought to pilot the Red Battlezord and
Super Zeozords by remote.
The Super Zeo
Megazord, being controlled remotely by Alpha, threw one saber at giant Archerina, knocking the bow from her hands.
Alpha, working the energy analyzer to scan Jason, wished Billy were
there, but Zordon reassured him he was doing
Alpha now had a shiny, redesigned body, but he
was still Alpha Five.
After Lerigot had
landed on Earth one evening, Alpha walked in
from the northwestern entrance to
tell Zordon of Lerigot's arrival.
Alpha looked around
for Zordon, who wasn't in his tube; Zordon then shimmered into existence in his tube,
and Alpha said Zordon had startled him.
Lerigot said "Alpha"
several times as Tommy and Kat approached him.
Alpha seemed quite familiar with Lerigot's weakness to the sun; he explained that
although the sun had taken its toll on Lerigot, the treatment he was receiving on the medical table would at least
temporarily restore his life force.
Alpha and Lerigot,
being good friends, could communicate with purring and clicking sounds.
After Justin had taken
Rocky's place as the Blue Ranger, Alpha had had to
give him a crash-course in driving.
As the teens prepared
for their graduation, Alpha said through Adam's
communicator that Zordon needed them in the Power Chamber right away, then chuckled.
Alpha had made a cake all by himself to celebrate
the teens' graduation; only Adam, Tanya, Kat, and Justin came to the
Power Chamber to receive the gift.
Alpha's cake, bearing the words, "Congratulations
Rangers!", had what looked like black,
yellow, red, pink, and blue Ninja Ranger
figurines on it.
Alpha said he was so happy he could cry.
Alpha wouldn't let Justin touch the other teens' graduation cake.
When Bulk and
Skull's chimp chattering came in over the Power Chamber's audio system, Alpha said
he'd never seen anything like the transmission before.
Monitoring a wormhole on the Viewing Screen as he and Zordon secretly prepared for their imminent
departure to Eltar, Alpha remarked, "Oh, isn't
When he suddenly realized Justin was in the room, Alpha quickly turned off
the Viewing Screen.
Alpha was nervous and defensive; after Justin had left, Alpha remarked that that had been
a close one; Zordon said the time would come to
tell the teens soon enough.
Alpha soon told Zordon
the wormhole would be completely
open soon, but it would only remain open for a matter of moments, so Zordon had Alpha send a message to send for Lerigot right away so they would be prepared.
When the time was growing close and Lerigot still hadn't replied, Alpha was worried,
but Zordon reminded him that Lerigot had never let them down in the past.
After appearing in the Power Chamber, Lerigot asked Zordon and
Alpha if they were going home soon, and Alpha told him they were.
Zordon told Alpha to
call the teens as soon as the wormhole was ready.
When the four teens
found Lerigot in the Power Chamber after Zordon had called them, they assumed he'd come all
this way just for their graduation, but Zordon
said he was afraid there was more to it; as Alpha sobbed, he continued,
"There is no easy way to tell you this, Rangers. ... Lerigot has returned to give me my freedom. I
will soon return to my home planet to rejoin my
own family. I realize this is difficult, Rangers, but the time has come to bid
The four teens were
shocked to learn that Zordon, and Alpha too,
were leaving; when they wondered who would cover their backs, as Tanya said, he replied that he'd made arrangements
so that they wouldn't be alone.
When Porto's wormhole closer was beginning
to close the wormhole, Zordon said if they didn't hurry, they might have
to stay, and that perhaps they'd be able to return home another time.
Once the Rangers
had returned after making the vehicles retreat, Zordon told the Rangers that due to Divatox's wormhole-closing device, he and
Alpha had to leave right away; his final speech was, "Words cannot
express the gifts you have given me and the people of Earth. We will miss you dearly."
With the Rangers
again forming a circle around him, Lerigot
again produced gold sparkles from his Golden
Key, and the sparkles surrounded and dissolved Zordon's image, then more swept up Alpha, then the
two swirls of gold sparkles flew out the main cylinder of the Power Chamber's exterior and into the wormhole in space.
The wormhole closer began to make
the wormhole close on Alpha and Zordon; if it closed on them, they would be gone
The wormhole closer shut off after
giant Amphibitor had been
destroyed, and Zordon and Alpha's gold streaks
then finished passing through the wormhole.
When the Rangers
returned after destroying Amphibitor and disabling the wormhole closer, Lerigot told them that Zordon and Alpha were home, and he then left.
Alpha Six's body was
identical to the one Alpha Five had recently obtained; since the two Alphas were not shown together with the same body,
it's possible there was only one such new, shiny body.
After appearing in the ceremony chamber for the teens' passing on of their powers to the new teens, Zordon told the teens, "Rangers, it
is so good to see you again. Alpha [Five] and I are honored to
participate in this historic transformation."; Alpha Five then appeared
in his old body from white energy in front of Zordon's tube; nearby was Alpha Six in the shiny body.
On Eltar, Zordon and Alpha Five had built robotic duplicates of the teens, mentally identical to the originals, and
the teens now tested them for several days to
see how real the robot teens were and
whether they could endure the battle against evil.
Alpha Five remained unaccounted for after the fall of Eltar and Zordon's capture; it may be noted that Blue Senturion apparently survived despite having gone to Eltar to help fight the invasion.
Alpha had a completely different body, yet he was still Alpha
Alpha feared the earthquake felt in the Command Center was "the big one."
Alpha said he'd been afraid of Zoltar's selecting teenagers.
Alpha greeted the teens as "dudes and
dudettes" after they'd been teleported into the Command
Impressed, Billy referred to Alpha as a
"fully-sentient, multifunctional automaton."
Billy pushed a button on Alpha's chest,
causing Alpha to turn around.

Alpha simply chuckled in response to Kim's "psych!" joke, while in 101-
DOTD, he'd shorted out as a result of Kim's similar
"not!" joke, having been unfamiliar with the concept of humor.
MMPR Interactive CD-ROM
Having cared for Zordon before the
great battle with Rita, Alpha (an unknown model) found a way to
maintain communication following Zordon's imprisonment in his
time warp by constructing an interdimensional communication device in the Command Center.
MMPR: The Movie
According to the introductory narration, Alpha
Five helped Zordon seek out six extraordinary
teenagers (presumably the modern-day team) to become a "superhuman fighting force."
Alpha still used the "ai yi yi" exclamation.
Alpha's body was redesigned, with a shiny, less
wide head and a smaller lightning bolt which now had
of light running through its black display; he had tiny gold shoulder
plating and a much larger dome on the top of his head; he was also
taller and thinner, and all parts of his body which had been a dull
golden color were now gold and shiny.
Alpha karate chopped Ivan in the stomach, but his attack did nothing
to repel the intruder.
A purple energy bolt from Ivan's finger spun Alpha's head around and made
him stagger around the Command Center,
muttering to himself.
After Ivan had ravaged
the Command Center and the teens had arrived some time later, Alpha was
mentally back to normal, but his body was weak and slightly singed;
he told the teens he would be fine.
Alpha told the teens
that the power (see "Monolith") on
the distant planet of Phaedos might be able to
When Zordon wanted to
contact the teens on Phaedos, Alpha looked for a vertical deflector to
try to contact them through the Viewing
When the Rangers used
their combined energies to repair the Command Center and revive Zordon, Alpha also regained his shininess.
