- explosive devices used by Divatox (501-SIT1 through 523-PhPh)
technical advisor, Porto designed a detonator;
as he'd previously discussed with Divatox, the
detonator would achieve maximum implosive power within sixty minutes,
having enough power to destroy the Angel
Grove energy center and then
At the energy
center, Porto gave Elgar instructions on placing the detonator, in the
exact center to cause maximum damage.
The detonator began counting down from one hour.
occasions, the timer displays on detonators would not match the elapsed
time and/or the audible beeps of the timer.
After the Turbo RAM had driven the detonator
away into the distance, it exploded, sending blue energy waves passing
harmlessly over the power plant
and the Rangers.
In addition to creating the Chromite, Porto also
built a refracto-detonator which looked like a pile of old paint cans;
once on Earth, it was triggered by radioactive
paint dripping out, and once the paint on the ground had formed a
rainbow of colors, it would detonate.
Some time later, the refracto-detonator was
leaking a huge puddle of shimmering, multicolored liquid, but it still
hadn't gone off; it didn't have a visible timer.
Megazord cast a shadow on the Chromite,
making it dissolve and the detonator's paint puddle vanish.
Divatox had Elgar take a detonator to KAGV, the radio station which Visceron was using as a homing beacon.
The detonator began counting down from an hour.
The detonator blew up in Visceron's hand, engulfing him in a large
fireball; lying on the ground, Visceron
then reverted to his original, damaged form.
Divatox told Porto to make a detonator by the next day, but he
explained that the detonators were very sophisticated devices and were
quite complicated to manufacture.
The next morning, Divatox was upset that Porto had left, since she needed him to fix the
detonator which was currently on the subcraft's bridge.
After supposedly completing the detonator, Elgar planted it on the back of one of the racers
at the Angel Grove Derby, in which Justin was competing.
The detonator began counting down from two hours.
When the timer hit zero, a small fireball
exploded from the back of the racer, sending Mean Machine rolling out of
control, the brake lever breaking off.
Porto presented his new
super-duper, high-powered detonator, smaller than previous detonators;
as Elgar held it in the subcraft, it appeared to be counting down from
Racer hid the detonator in fuzzy green dice in Rob's car.
When the timer only
had a few seconds left, Green
Ranger threw the dice from Rob's
car into the canyon below, and a significant explosion erupted from down
below as the timer would have hit zero; Divatox would then tell her henchmen that the detonator had been
Divatox planned for Big Burpa to cast a spell preventing
Justin from getting off his new bike, then the
odometer on Justin's bike, really a detonator,
would count downward until it exploded.
"Miles" was written beneath the detonator's
display, which began at 25m00s.
In all shots of the
detonator after the initial shot, the "m", seconds display, and "s" were
all blacked out, showing only the changing minutes/miles number.
After realizing that the bike was a detonator, Justin tried to dump the bike in the lake, but its tires continued driving
right over the surface of the water.
Bluish-green energy crackles prevented Justin from removing his feet from the pedals.
On Justin's suggestion,
morphed Tommy tried to shoot out the bike's
tires with his Auto Blaster, but it
didn't work, possibly because his two blasts only seemed to strike the
silver frame of the bike.
The bike crashed to
the ground when Tommy leapt off Red Lightning and tackled Justin, but it then continued rolling until it
fell over, and moments later (while the bike was stopped), the odometer
changed from 01 to 00, making the bike explode.
Porto secretly went to
the car wash the teens were volunteering at and
dropped a detonator into a bucket; the detonator seemed to have begun
counting down from an hour.
Bulk and Skull
accidentally knocked the detonator into a soapy bucket; it
short-circuited just as the timer reached zero, and the detonator merely
made water explode out of the bucket.
Divatox had Pharaoh plant the latest detonator, modeled in a
smooth pyramid shape, at the Angel Grove stunt show.
When the detonator caught Justin's eye and he reached for it, red elecricity
shocked his hand.
After the Rangers had destroyed giant Pharaoh, Mr.
Peabody was holding the pyramid-shaped detonator when the Rangers returned, but why he wasn't
electrocuted is uncertain.
Surprised by the Rangers, Mr. Peabody threw the detonator up
in the air, and a green blast from Adam's Thunder Cannon made it explode in a
small burst of sparks.
Divatox had Numbor plant a detonator and keep the
Morphed Kat destroyed the
detonator with pink pulses of energy from her Auto Blaster, causing a medium-sized
After witnessing the chaos caused by the fire
alarm pulled by Reggie and Junior at Angel
Grove High, Divatox had Rygog send Piranhatrons to Angel Grove for them to set off every alarm,
bell, and buzzer in the city to distract
the Rangers so they wouldn't find the
Rygog, not Porto, later gave Divatox
a detonator shaped like a fire extinguisher; she had him and Elgar hide it in Angel
Elgar thought to plant
the detonator on one of the city's own
emergency vehicles, a fire truck.
The detonator's timer started counting down from
When the detonator's timer hit zero, the firefighters inside the truck experienced a bright
flash of light, and the fire truck transformed
into a giant monster fire truck
which had a growling laugh.
After reprogramming Blue Senturion, Porto placed a detonator inside the officer's back
before sending him on his way.
There was a fiery
explosion from around the corner just after Blue Senturion had run there with the
detonator still inside him, and Divatox then
appeared to taunt the Rangers that their
defender from the other galaxy was gone, but Blue Senturion would soon be shown riding
the Robo Racer into battle against giant Terrortooth, and the detonator
was still inside him; the explosion may have been the enlargement of Terrortooth.
After opening Blue
Senturion's back panel, Alpha snipped a
yellow wire, causing Blue Senturion's
right arm to go up; Justin snipped a different
wire, raising his other arm; finally, they decided it had to be the
purple one, and they disabled the detonator by cutting the purple wire.
planted a spider-shaped gold detonator inside the electronic scoreboard
at the big soccer game.
The detonator had been designed to activate when
Angel Grove scored four goals.
Justin reached inside
the scoreboard and turned off the detonator just as Barry scored the
Elgar took to the Royal Academy audition hall a
detonator which looked identical to a tape player used in the auditions;
Elgar reset the counter, and when the device
started playing music at the next audition, the counter began to climb
until the detonator would explode at 100.
Morphed Kat hurled the
detonator into the air just as the timer reached 100, making a large
explosion in midair.
Divatox gave Shrinkasect a detonator shaped
like a soda can for him to hide without letting the Rangers see him.
Outside the Youth
Center, which was being used as a recycling center for Angel Grove Cleanup Week, the chimps inadvertantly made Shrinkasect drop his detonator,
and they took it with them.
On the detonator was the brand name "Touch Down
Divatox thought the Rangers would never find her detonator, but
morphed Justin grabbed the can, presumably
having located it with a Turbo
Navigator, and hurled it into the air, where it went off with a
After the detonator had exploded in the air, the
smoke from the torpedoes' crater near the chimps began to glow blue, and when it
stopped, chimps Bulk and Skull had been
turned human again, but they were temporarily
invisible; this transformation occurred just after Skull had realized they might have been able to
help the Rangers if they'd been human.
As four of the teens
were put under an anger spell when they put on Delisha Ennivel's jackets, Divatox remarked that the Rangers would be so busy being angry that
they wouldn't have time to notice when she went after the gems she'd
wanted at the museum that were being
delivered that day; this was ordinarily the part of her plan where she'd
plant a detonator, but she had apparently given up the detonator idea.
After Elgar had failed to
steal the gems, Divatox said she was going to
need something to really blow the Rangers' socks off (again, a perfect cue for
a detonator); she ended up having Delisha put a jacket on Blue Senturion to fill him with anger.
After Justin had
unwittingly led Rygog to the Phantom's ship in the woods, Divatox had Porto send Rygog a detonator to make the Phantom return.
The detonator Rygog
planted reached zero very quickly, as though its timer had only begun
counting from a minute or less.
threw the detonator into the air, where it exploded; this was the last
use of a detonator by Divatox.
