- powerful Triforian Ranger; aided Zeo Rangers (428-PwOG through 450-Good)
Pyramidas was Gold Ranger's Zord.
The energy signatures of the Zeo Subcrystals and Pyramidas were an exact match; Pyramidas and the Zeo
Rangers were using the same energy source.
To help the Rangers
against Wolfbane and the Cogs, Gold Ranger streaked down as a black,
gold-edged energy streak, bouncing off two Cogs
and knocking them over, then three others, then Wolfbane.
When Gold Ranger was first shown after bouncing
off the Cogs and Wolfbane, the glowing gold symbol of
the Gold Ranger flew into his visor.
Gold Ranger's symbol had several possible
meanings: it had six ends on it, perhaps representing his status as the
sixth Zeo Ranger; it consisted of three
bars connected in the middle, perhaps representing his Triforian origin; it was also the Japanese symbol for "king."
Gold Ranger's suit was a black version of the Zeo Rangers', but with gold chest armor, gold
armbands, more complex glove and boot cuffs, gold knee armor, and a belt
buckle bearing his symbol rather than the Zeo symbol; he had no holster on his
Gold Ranger singlehandedly fought all the Cogs.
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
With a blurry effect, Gold Ranger quickly ran
past his opponents, and gold lightning struck them as he passed.
After summoning Pyramidas, Gold Ranger teleported to the giant Zord in the form of
a thin gold streak of light identical to the teleportation used by the five Zeo Rangers to teleport to the Zeozords and Red
After materializing inside Pyramidas, a Varox
waited to attack Gold Ranger until the Ranger had left the protective
field of Pyramidas.
When Borax told Mondo that he was a Varox bounty hunter, Mondo assumed that he had come to Earth searching for the Gold Ranger; Borax was unfamiliar with the term "Ranger" and only referred to the Gold Ranger as
the pilot of the pyramid.
Borax said that once
outside of his pyramid, Gold Ranger was
completely powerless against him.
A direct hit from Borax's
energy spheres caused Gold Ranger's black areas to glow with flaming red
energy, and Gold Ranger clutched his head in great pain; he was
immensely weakened for several minutes.
Before fainting from weakness, Gold Ranger told
the Rangers he couldn't tell them who he was,
or else he'd lose his powers.
Kat had Alpha teleport
Gold Ranger to the Power Chamber, and the
unconscious Gold Ranger teleported with
his gold-edged black streak teleport.
Mondo expected the
chase with the Varox to weaken the Gold Ranger
After being told that Gold Ranger was deep in the
oceans of Aquitar (where Pyramidas had been
shot down), the Varox commander declared that
that was the end of the Gold Ranger and that their mission had been
After Cestro had helped him into the Aquitians' chamber, Gold Ranger began to
glow with bright gold light; the image of the Gold Ranger suit seemed to
expand away from him, then he reverted to an unmorphed form as Trey of Triforia.
Just as he demorphed, Trey remarked, "The power... I can't--"
Trey continued to hold the
Golden Power Staff after demorphing.
As Trey weakly held his
head, crackled with blue electricity, and showed flickers of the Gold
Ranger's helmet and belt, green and red images of him slightly swayed
away from either side of his head.
Trey told Delphine that he was losing
control of the power and that he needed Zordon's help.
His latest battle with the Varox had splintered Trey's
unity being, and until he was one, he was unable to utilize the Gold
Ranger powers; he had to find a worthy beneficiary, or the powers would
be lost forever.
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
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.
Billy monitored the
ensuing battle between the six Rangers and Silo and found that Jason had fully absorbed the Golden powers.
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.
Jason informally took
over as leader of the Zeo Rangers in Tommy's absence; Cruel Chrome acknowledged Gold
Ranger as the substitute team leader.
While morphed Tommy was
trapped in his Brain Drain
device, Gasket called in Altor, a gold robot monster with the
Gold Ranger symbol on his face, arms, and belt, to have him infused with
Tommy's powers to make the monster invincible.
bore the Gold Ranger symbol.
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.
After returning to the Power Chamber, Jason
demorphed with the Gold Ranger
suit expansion and dissolve, just as had happened to Trey in 433-RvOG.
After Jason tried to pass
off his weakness and demorphing
as mere exhaustion from his recent intense workouts, Zordon said it was entirely possible that Jason's physical exhaustion had caused his powers
to become temporarily intermittent, and he had Alpha run a complete battery of tests on Jason.
The tests were negative (a good result),
presumably indicating that Jason wasn't losing
his powers, but Zordon told Jason not to exert himself, just in case.
Zordon told Alpha that he'd had grave concerns all along
that Jason's physiological makeup would be
unable to sustain the Gold Ranger powers.
Jason's communicator wouldn't work while his powers
were waning in the forest.
Leaning up against a tree, morphed Jason demorphed with red energy and then
Mondo wanted to wear
Jason out; since he was losing the Golden powers, the Machine Empire could seize them, Mondo said.
As he was being confronted by Rita and Zedd, Jason did the suit expand demorph, then soon re-morphed with
a reversed version of the same effect in time to fend off the Tengas.
As Jason posed upon
re-morphing, his hands trailed with golden energy.
Some time after escaping from the forest, Jason,
in unmorphed form, stumbled into the Youth
Center and collapsed.
As Zordon had suspected,
the Gold Ranger powers, and Jason's own vital
life force along with them, were leaving Jason.
A short while later, Jason was resting with his eyes closed, as the
struggle to maintain balance between the Gold Ranger powers and the
forces of the universe could be very taxing
on the human form.
Zordon called the Treys to Earth to reclaim
the Gold Ranger powers.
Zordon said there was
only one possibility to reunite the Treys that he
was aware of, but it could prove very dangerous: an interplanetary
unification beam would be used to create a positive energy flow between
the planets Triforia, Aquitar, and Earth; the
beam had to be reflected off the planets at specific points in their
orbits and returned to Earth with exact
precision, and if the beam struck Earth without
first hitting the Golden Power Staff
at exactly the right time, Jason and the Treys could be destroyed.
Trey of Heart said they
didn't seem to have a choice and that they would do whatever it took to
save Jason and their powers.
The location on Earth
where the beam had to strike was in the northwest corner of the Angel Grove desert; at the proper location, a large
triangle appeared to have been burned into the ground.
Once the three planets were in alignment, Zordon had Alpha fire
the beam, which was a green energy blast from the Power Chamber's main external cylinder; the
blast bounced off a southern area on Aquitar,
then bounced off a southern area on Triforia, and finally headed back to Earth.
Before the blast arrived, the Treys stood at the points of the black triangle in
the desert, with Jason holding up the Golden Power Staff in the center; the
blast struck the staff, and gold energy bolts flowed into the Treys, merging them into the Gold Ranger, who was now standing in front of
Morphed Trey exclaimed
that his powers were completely restored, and when Jason gave him the Golden Power Staff, he declared that now
he could do some good, then rushed into battle.

Gold Ranger's voice wasn't heard clearly, so his
identity at this point was uncertain.

told the people of Earth, not necessarily
speaking the truth, that the rest of the universe had surrendered.
The next Earth morning,
the energy wave from Zordon's destruction
turned all of the monsters into piles of
sand, leaving Rita and Zedd in human forms,
and the couple danced away happily, to Gold Ranger's confusion.
