Golden Power Staff
- weapon and power source for Gold Ranger
To summon the Golden Power Staff, Gold Ranger held his hand in front of his
face, and, like Zeo Ranger Five's
summoning of the Zeo Five Power
Sword, gold energy from his visor formed the Golden Power Staff in
his hand, with the Gold Ranger symbol on
the staff positioned directly in front of the visor.
On the top of the Golden Power Staff was a red
orb roughly the size of a ping-pong ball.
To initiate his rush special attack, Gold Ranger held the Golden Power Staff up,
and the middle piece (which bore the Zeo insignia) slid down to the
bottom to give the staff a somewhat bladed end.
With a blurry effect, Gold Ranger quickly ran past his opponents,
and gold lightning struck them as he passed.
Gold Ranger could
also perform with his staff an energy blast attack: he first pressed the
red button on the handle just below the head of his staff; this caused
the head to split open vertically, containing three flashing red lights
arranged vertically; streaks of gold energy flew into the red orb on the
top of the staff, and then in front of the gold Gold Ranger symbol, Gold Ranger pointed his staff forward, sending
three spheres of gold energy flying into his opponent.
The Golden Power Staff's triple energy blast
attack temporarily defeated Wolfbane.
When Gold Ranger
summoned Pyramidas during the battle with
giant Wolfbane, he held up his
Golden Power Staff, and a golden beam shot upward from it; the sky grew
dark, and Pyramidas flew down from the sky,
in the form of a black pyramid speckled with hundreds of small gold
square surfaces; a blue energy beam then connected the tip of Pyramidas with the sky as gold energy flames
moved down Pyramidas, transforming it into
its normal form.
Faucet liquefied to dodge the Rangers'
advanced Zeo Laser Pistol blasts, they
shot the freon pipes beside him, freezing him solid; Gold Ranger's triple energy blast then
obliterated the frozen monster.
Although the frozen
Leaky Faucet had been
completely obliterated by the energy blast, he was merely lying on the
ground, whole, when Orbus made him grow.
The triple energy blast attack made the Cogs retreat.
Later, the triple energy blast blew Somnibot apart into pieces.
Later still, the triple energy blast temporarily
defeated the rebuilt Somnibot.
When Gold Ranger
performed his energy blast attack, the normal three blasts emerged from
the staff, but then seven more blasts were shown firing from the staff
as Gold Ranger continued to hold it out;
the Cogs surrounding Gold Ranger then fell over after the blasts
had caused explosions around them.
After demorphing from being shot down in
Pyramidas by the Varox over Aquitar, Trey continued to hold the Golden Power Staff.
The Gold Ranger
powers were contained within the Golden Power Staff.
Immediately after the Treys had been teleported to the Power Chamber, they were shown officially
presenting the Golden Power Staff and Gold
Ranger powers to Billy; after asking him if
he was ready, they held up the staff near him and announced, "Gift of
power, take flight!" then told Billy that the
Golden Power Staff was now his.
As Billy's hand approached the Golden Power Staff, it glowed gold and
lit up the Power Chamber with flashes of
light; when he held onto the staff,
gold energy started to flow from the head of the staff into his hand but then returned to
the head of the staff.
When the Rangers
returned, Billy, looking crestfallen as he
turned to face them, said that the power of the Gold Ranger couldn't be infused into him; he
said he'd run a biomolecular scan on himself and explained that when the
Command Center had blown up, he'd
absorbed an extremely high dosage of "negative proton molecules" which
resisted the Golden power like two magnets
(presumably the like poles of two magnets) put together.
To energize the Golden Power Staff and buy the teens more time to find a new Gold Ranger, the staff was in a bed of glowing
red crystal, just inside the western double door alcove of the Power Chamber, with only the pink Zeo Subcrystal visible in the bed;
the others may have been present but obscured by the other thin, pointy
crystals in the group.
As Trey of Courage held
out the staff for Jason, he told Jason that he gave forth the spirit and fortitude
the Golden power possessed; Trey of Heart said he embraced Jason with the kindness and empathy the power held;
Trey of Wisdom said he placed in Jason's hands the knowledge and experience of his
people of Triforia.
As Jason held the Golden
Power Staff along with Trey of Courage, bright
golden energy flowed into his face, lighting the Power Chamber up with flashes of light and
instantly suiting him up as the Gold Ranger
in one such flash.
Taking the staff, morphed Jason said he could feel the power, and Trey of wisdom told him that he now possessed the
power drawn from all three of Trey's essences.
The glowing golden staff activated the Super Zeo Gems and caused the Super Zeozords to appear outside in the desert.
The Golden Power Staff appeared to be responsible
for Gold Ranger's morphing.
Morphed Jason summoned
the Golden Power Staff with a flash of sparkling white light.
When the five other Rangers used their Zeo Laser Pistols, morphed Jason also used the Golden Power Staff to shoot a
gold laser of its own, from the red orb on top.
When the five Rangers reached for their Zeo Laser Pistols to shoot Stenchy, morphed Jason wasn't holding the Golden Power Staff, but a
gold laser was among the six lasers which struck Stenchy; afterward, Jason was holding the staff.
Morphed Jason held up his
glowing gold staff to summon the Warrior
Wheel from the holding bay.
Removing the Golden Power Staff from a stand in
the Power Chamber which had caused the
staff to glow orange, Billy told Jason that the energy from the staff should now
regenerate itself, even in battle.
The teens were unable to
summon their Zeonizers (or, in Jason's case, to morph) in the Machine Arena while Gasket's forcefield was blocking their
Jason's powers grew weak
as the Rangers fought Cogs in the desert.
Gasket told Jason to surrender his powers to him or be
destroyed, but Sprocket distracted Gasket, giving the Rangers time to escape.
Before summoning Pyramidas, morphed Jason summoned the Golden Power Staff from bright
wisps of golden or orange energy.
Once in the desert with the teens and Treys to transfer
the Golden powers, unmorphed Jason didn't know whether he had enough energy left
to summon the Golden Power Staff, but he did so, from orange wisps of
A green energy blast from the Power Chamber, bounced off Aquitar and Triforia before being sent back to Earth, struck the Golden Power Staff,
simultaneously reuniting the Treys and returning
to Trey the completely restored Gold Ranger powers (see "Gold Ranger" page for details).
To make the Rangers
grow to confront giant Mondo, Gold Ranger had the Rangers hold his hand and focus their powers
toward each other, and as he held up the Golden Power Staff, he summoned
the power of Triforia, generating
golden energy bolts which made the six Rangers
grow to giant size.
Gold Ranger holding
the Golden Power Staff when struggling against Rita and Zedd's forces,
until being blasted by Goldar, at which point
he dropped the staff and was grappled.
The staff lay on the ground nearby after Zordon's energy wave had wiped out the army around
"Golden Power Staff."
