- ancient warrior; rumored creator of Power Coins
Immediately after Billy
and Zordon had been talking about the Command Center's power core following the
destruction of the Rangers' powers and Thunderzords, Adam
asked where their Ranger powers had come from in
the first place; Zordon told them of a
legendary (perhaps merely mythical) lost
temple hidden beneath the Desert of
Despair, and that the keeper of the temple, Ninjor, was thought to have forged
the original Power Coins to be used by
those battling the evil forces of the universe.
Alpha (not Alpha Five) and Zordon had found a map to the hidden temple when they'd originally found
the Power Coins.
On an ornate table in the Temple of Power was a large blue jar with a
long neck; Ninjor was inside.
Ninjor told the teens he
didn't know Ninjor, but when Aisha called Ninjor
great and wise, he chuckled that maybe he did know Ninjor.
Ninjor teleported out of the jar with red flame
Ninjor was a warrior covered in blue armor; on his chest (matching a smaller version on his forehead) was a circular golden N emblem. (see "Recurring letters")
Ninjor gave the teens
five seconds to explain what they wanted, and afterward, he was unmoved
by Tommy's explanation, "Our leader Zordon sent us on a quest for new powers and Zords. Lord Zedd
destroyed our old ones."; Ninjor told them it was a lovely story and not
to let the door hit them on the way out.
Ninjor was equally unmoved when the teens told him they were the Power Rangers; when Adam said
their world was in incredible danger, Ninjor
told them it wasn't his problem.
When the teens were sad
that the world would be destroyed and they
couldn't stop it without any powers, Tommy told
them they had within themselves a power Zedd
could never take away: the knowledge of what's right and true; after Tommy's brief speech, Ninjor admitted that their
hearts spoke the truth and that they had convinced him that they didn't
seek the ninja powers out of greed.
At the end of the ceremony which suited the teens up as hoodless Ninja Rangers, two white energy bolts struck
Ninjor's hands from above, then the energy flowed between his hands and
Once the ninjas
were outside in the garden, Ninjor shot a bluish-white energy beam from
his fingertip into the sky, saying, "Behold the power, grace, and beauty
of your new Ninjazords."; the beam struck
each of the six Ninjazords.
Ninjor knew that even as they spoke, Zedd had begun to attack Angel Grove and that the Tenga Warriors were trying to gain access to the
temple; he said that the Tengas were creatures of evil and that their vile spirits must not be allowed
to disturb the inner purity of the Temple of
Ninjor went out into the Desert of Despair to send the ninja teens off
after they had defeated the Tengas.
Ninjor told the ninjas he couldn't have done a better job
selecting them than Zordon had.
Outside the Desert
of Despair's entrance leading to the Temple of Power, Vampirus declared, "I call upon
Ninjor, keeper of the temple of Ninja power!", after which three blue ghosts
with red eyes and black mouths emerged from the alcove; Vampirus was blasted by a
bluish-purple energy beam, and Ninjor then stood near the entrance.
After Vampirus had grown, Ninjor made
Ninjor did some stretches upon growing, saying it
had been a while, but that it sure felt good.
Zordon told the teens
that both Ninjor and the Temple of Power
were key elements to maintaining their powers and that if either one
fell into Zedd's hands all would be lost, yet
this would later be disproved during Ninjor's captivity from 318-ChZ1 through 329-MVA1 and again from 329-MVA1 through 331-MVA3.
Giant Ninjor was able to perform the Ninja Rangers' slide-teleport maneuver, by
which he would almost instantaneously "slide" to another nearby location
with a blurry streak.
In the middle of the fight with giant Vampirus, giant Ninjor vanished
into smoke, then came riding down on a flying white cloud.
Giant Ninjor wielded the sword normally held in
the sheath on his back.
Giant Vampirus warped himself and giant
Ninjor into a place with flames and a red sky; after looking around,
Ninjor was inexplicably shown lying down on the ground in weakness.
Saying evil made him so
angry, with flames appearing inside his visor, giant Ninjor regained his
strength and transformed into Ninja Battle Mode.
Giant Ninjor's transformation into battle mode
was as follows: his head flips back, revealing a red warrior head and a
different N symbol on his chest; his shoulder guards flip up, and his
thigh guards then slide down.
Giant Ninjor, in battle mode, connected the
handle of his sword with the end of its sheath, forming a long, bladed
A slash from the bladed staff of Ninjor in battle
mode returned both giant Ninjor and Vampirus to the Desert of Despair.
Giant Ninjor in battle mode was able to summon
white streaks and specks from around him and then hurl at his opponent a
glowing red sphere of energy.
Megafalconzord's wolf/ape power punch, immediately after giant Ninjor's
energy blast, destroyed giant Vampirus.
Once the teens were back
in the Command Center, Zordon patched Ninjor through to the teens, with whom Ninjor had been wanting to speak;
from the temple, he told them that now
that they had mastered the art of ninja
powers, they could join forces to protect the Temple of Power from the evil which inhabited the universe.
According to Zordon, now
that Ninjor was in allegiance with them, he would from that day forward
answer the teens' calls for guidance and help;
Ninjor told them that, as was the power of Ninja, they could contact him simply by
closing their eyes and focusing on their collective energy.
When summoned by morphed Tommy, Ninjor flew down on his cloud and helped the
Rangers fight Artistmole.
Multicolored energy from Artistmole's paintbrush sucked
the colors and powers out of the Rangers and
Ninjor, turning them all black-and-white.
When the Ninja
Megazord confronted giant Lanterra, giant Ninjor flew in on
his cloud, thinking the Rangers could use some
After giant Lanterra had pounded Ninjor and
called him a "dim bulb," Ninjor shook angrily as he declared, "What did
you say? No one calls Ninjor dim and survives to converse about it!";
he then transformed and threw his energy ball, shouting, "Ninjor is
Since he said Rocky's
plan to invert Centiback's
energy wave to free the others wouldn't work with interference, Zordon told Rocky it was
imperative for the mission that Rocky summon
Ninjor, and immediately after Zordon had
mentioned his name, Ninjor appeared in the Command Center beside Rocky.
Ninjor said football was his favorite sport, but
he had all his sports facts mixed up.
In battle mode, giant Ninjor slashed giant Centiback with his glowing red
blade as his eyes glowed red, and red and blue sparkles flashed behind
him; immediately afterward, the Ninja
power punch destroyed the giant monster.
The giant Ninjor flew in on his cloud to help the
Rangers fight the giant cat monster.
Giant Ninjor's energy ball, followed by the Ninja Megafalconzord's power punch,
destroyed the giant cat
Ninjor appeared in the park to help White Ranger against Goldar and the Tengas.
Ninjor grew to fight giant Goldar.
When giant Ninjor was distracted by White Ranger's landing in the park after the Falconzord had been hijacked, giant Goldar caught him offguard and pounded him until
he fell down and returned to normal size with blue and gold energy.
The weakened Ninjor, after being shrunk to normal
size after being pummeled by giant Goldar,
glowed blue, turned translucent, and then vanished, with Zedd planning to use him as the power source
needed to operate the Shogunzords.
Zedd kept Ninjor
imprisoned in a blue jug in the palace.
Having obtained Ninjor and the Falconzord, Zedd
declared that they had everything they needed to bring the Shogunzords to life: "the battle technology
from the almighty Falconzord and Ninjor's
energy as its power source."
Zedd gave Ninjor's jug
to Finster to have him siphon off Ninjor's
energy so they could power up the Shogunzords.
Zordon told the six teens that when Ninjor had recharged their Power Coins, he'd linked them with their
natural human energy, and now that Kim's Power Coin
was in evil hands, her body was undergoing a
Billy theorized that Zedd's using the pink Power Coin to steal the Falconzord must have left Ninjor powerless and
an easy target.
Zedd said everything
was going as planned: he had Kimberly's Power Coin, and Finster was working on a way to siphon off
Ninjor's power, combine it with the Falconzord's technology, and bring the Shogunzords to life; then, he said, all he
needed was six pilots to command the Zords.
Rita told the Rangers that the Shogunzords were powered by Ninjor and armed
with battle technology by their caged Falconzord.
When asked by Adam if
there was any way to gain control of the Shogunzords once they were in the cockpits,
Billy said he might be able to reprogram the
Zords off their Power Coins, which would
transfer control to the Rangers.
In the Blue Shogunzord cockpit, Billy used a small silver rod to make adjustments
to his Shogunzord's circuits; he was
making adjustments to the quantum linear controller, apparently only in
the Blue Shogunzord cockpit; once he was
finished, the Shogunzords' chest symbols
shimmered with white light, and the Zords posed individually.
Zedd said the Shogunzords had been released from his power
Ninjor was now being held in a blue jar.
Rito accidentally dropped
and shattered Ninjor's jar to show it to Master
Vile; the tiny Ninjor soon grew to normal size again and told Vile, after hearing that his master plan
involved the Zeo Crystal, that the crystal
would never be his.
Ninjor teleported directly from the moon palace to the Command Center to tell the teens of Vile's
As Ninjor and Zordon
recounted the hiding of the Zeo Crystal in
the Caves of Deception on the moon by the people of the M51
galaxy and Zedd's corruption of the moon palace, Zordon
told the teens, "We thought the crystal would be safe from Zedd, but Master
Vile is much older and infintely wiser in the ways of evil."
When the Rangers were
overpowered by the super-strong Tengas, Tommy had to call into his communicator for Ninjor to help, and when
Ninjor did arrive, he teleported into the wrong part of the park and had to run on foot to where the
When Globbor suddenly latched onto his
back, Ninjor grew, but a blue lightning bolt from the clouds made Globbor grow as well.
and Ninjor, both giant, vanished in bluish-white energy after Globbor had begun draining
Ninjor awoke in chains in Master Vile's Space Skull's throne room.
Master Vile told
Ninjor that Globbor had already
drained most of his power.
Giant Globbor took on Ninjor's energy,
making himself look a bit like Ninjor.
Master Vile told
Ninjor that Globbor had
absorbed all of his powers.
Giant Ninjor-Globbor wielded a sword like
Ninjor's, and he was able to throw Ninjor's red energy ball.
Giant Ninjor-Globbor fired a blue energy bolt
from his bladed staff.
Ninjor, now on a rooftop, still in chains,
sparked in pain from the Fire
Saber's attack on giant Ninjor-Globbor and from any of the
successive blows to Globbor.
Ninjor was later again in the Space Skull's throne room.
Upon tapping the Ninjazords' and Shogunzords' energy, giant Globbor wore the symbols of Ninjor
and four of the Zords (with no Ape or Falcon symbols),
and he had four Aquitian Ranger helmets for
heads: yellow in front, white on his right, black in back, and blue on
his left; he was still wielding a sword, but not Ninjor's; Globbor then told the six Rangers he now had the same power as they did.
Giant Ranger-Globbor leapt through the air and
was suddenly in front of the Ninja
Megazord, as though he had performed the Ninja Rangers' slide-teleport without the
Told to use his "weapons" by Master Vile, giant Ranger-Globbor wielded a small
wrist-mounted crossbow bearing the J pentagon of the Black Ranger's Zords; it fired what looked like three pink
energy darts; at this point, Tommy exclaimed
that Globbor was using their
own powers against them.
Ninjor was badly hurt by the Ninja and Shogun Megazords' fight with giant Ranger-Globbor.
When daylight weakened Globbor, Ninjor began to regain
After Globbor had released all of the
powers he'd absorbed, Ninjor was able to break free from his chains;
when he confronted Master Vile, Vile grew to giant size, wrecking his throne
room in the process.
Ninjor, then outside, simultaneously grew and
transformed to battle mode.
Saber, followed immediately by giant Ninjor's energy ball, destroyed
Without being called, giant Ninjor flew in on his
cloud to help the Rangers fight giant Dischordia after the Rangers had formed both the Ninja and Shogun Megazords.
Once the Falconzord had taken to the skies again after
being detached from the Ninja Megazord,
the sky brightened back up (bothering Dischordia), and the previously
weakened Ninja Megazord, Shogun Megazord, and giant Ninjor got back
up, seemingly at full strength.
Ninjor shoved the Megazords aside for a chance to
attack giant Dischordia.
Ninjor was nowhere to be seen as the Orb of Doom was placed on Earth and activated.
When young Billy, in the simulated past (see "Orb of Doom"), asked
about Zords, Cestro of the Aquitian Rangers told the six kids, "Our Battle
Borgs were presented to us over a millennium ago by your great sage,
When young Adam noted that
they could use Ninjor's help at this point, young Billy said that they wouldn't find the Temple of Power for years.
After the teens' first
fight as Zeo Rangers, Tommy reminded Billy that
they'd need help if the Machine Empire
launched a full assault, since Ninjor was back in the temple and the Zords were gone.
Ninjor: "Ninjor expansion mode!"
Ninjor: "I'm up to good! Ninja Power, now!"
Ninjor: "Ninjor Battle Mode, now!"
Ninjor: "Time to power up!"
Ninjor: "Behold the power of Ninja!"
