- magical artifact possessed by Lerigot
Lerigot's Golden Key
opened the dimensional gateways of the
universe. (Source: 500-TPRM introduction.)
When surrounded by Piranhatron-like warriors in a Liarian jungle, Lerigot
removed from his vest his Golden Key, a very small gold rod with a sharp
crystal tip, and held it up; gold energy swirled around him, and he flew
to Earth as a golden streak of energy.
Elgar referred to the
Golden Key as the key to the island of Muiranthias.
Divatox said that the
Golden Key was the only key to freeing Maligore from his prison on Muiranthias.
The Golden Key wouldn't work in Divatox's hands.
The five Turbo
Morpher keys which activated the Rangers' powers and Turbozords and allowed the Ghost Galleon to pass through the Nemesis Triangle were supposedly similar to
the Golden Key.
Purring in tones with his eyes closed, Lerigot unleashed gold sparkles of energy from
the Golden Key, sparkles which flowed from the subcraft's exterior into the wall of the Nemesis Triangle, and the subcraft freely passed through with flickering
light around its edges at the points of entry; this scene was confirmed
by the flashback in 501-SIT1.
Outside Maligore's temple on Muiranthias, Divatox let Lerigot out
of his cage and removed the mind blocker, then gave him the Golden Key,
which he used to unlock the door to Maligore's temple
with a swirl of golden energy specks, despite Yara's protests.
Divatox took the Golden
Key back after the temple had been
Lerigot was a
descendant of those who had imprisoned Maligore.
To give Zordon his
freedom, Lerigot had the teens form a circle around him; after Tommy had arrived, Lerigot made humming purrs, and gold sparkles
drifted out from his Golden Key; Lerigot
stopped the process, however, when the Power
Chamber's alarm sounded.
Once the Rangers
had defeated Elgar's fleet and again formed
a circle around Lerigot, he 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.
