PRZ villains' inventions/devices
Klank built a
small gear-shaped device which clipped onto the backside of Puppetman, Captain Pete's robotic sidekick, to
turn him evil.
Once Mondo had Klank activate the transmitter, its two
tiny red lights flashed, and the transmitter turned Puppetman evil, transforming him
into a meaner-looking form.
In the desert,
Sprocket used a control panel bearing
the Machine Empire symbol to create from
blue energy a giant boxing ring made of chains; Sprocket had the ring electrocute the Red Battlezord whenever giant Punchabunch knocked it against
the chains; the ring disintegrated when morphed Kat smashed the controls with her Power Pod sword.
On Earth, Sprocket showed Klank and Orbus his invention which was
supposed to make monsters grow bigger than
Orbus's, but it actually shrank things;
Mondo came to Earth
and was pleased with Sprocket's
shrinker, planning to shrink the Rangers.
shrinker shrank Tommy's black Jeep, then morphed
Tommy and Kat.
Billy explained that Tommy
and Kat's shrunken size was a result of the
tightening of the spaces between their molecules, but this wouldn't have
altered their masses as Sprocket's size
Billy used a molecular
respacer to restore the size of the Jeep, then the helmetless Tommy and Kat.
Klank and Orbus drove away in an empty moving truck
which they planned to use as a mobile power station for Somnibot; one the truck was shown
parked elsewhere, its rear door bore the Machine Empire symbol, and inside the back
of the truck was now all sorts of equipment, including a control panel
and a large box bearing a Machine Empire
the controls while Somnibot was
hooked up to the equipment to amplify his sleeping spell.
Alpha sent a power
surge through the city's power line which Klank's setup was tapping to power Somnibot; the surge shorted out Somnibot's sleep spell.
Finster had been
working on a one-use transporter, even though he had little to work
with; the transporter successfully teleported the four Rangers into the Machine Arena with blue energy bolts
(seemingly teleporting the Rangers in pieces), burning itself out in the
Using what looked like a Viewing Globe sphere on a stand, Finster found the lost Impursonator monster and
teleported her back to Earth, where she
materialized in the Super Zeo
Megazord's cockpit and kicked the Rangers
out; Rita appeared impressed merely by the
globe's ability to bring Impursonator back.
In the RV, Finster was able to intercept a command
transmission from Mondo, ordering Cog Changer and a battalion of Cogs to attack the Angel
Klank was able to
detect a transmission bound for Triforia, and Mondo, having known the teens would try to call Trey, had Klank
activate the laser alarm scanners to warm them of Trey's arrival.
In the desert,
a small device on a tiny tripod, with the device bearing a gold gear
decoration on the side, crackled with white energy after the teens and Trey had passed
by it; Klank then told Mondo that the Rangers had tripped the alarm in the beta sector.
- medallions used to generate invisibility field
While sparring with the teens in the forest, Adam
found a small, golden, gear-shaped medallion, and the teens took it to Billy in
the Power Chamber for analysis.
The medallions had been Klank's idea.
The medallions weren't made of any elements found
The medallion Billy
analyzed was producing high levels of radiant energy, generated by an
The medallions looked just like the medallions on
A different day, Billy
explained that the medallion drew energy from an unknown source; he put
the medallion into the Power Chamber
console and pressed several buttons, causing him to become transparent
briefly before turning completely invisible; he soon became visible
again, but transparent first; such a transition between visibility and
invisibility is quite similar to the transitions used by the future
Shawn had found a
medallion, and he planned on using it for a sure win in his upcoming
kung fu tournament.
Using his medallion, Shawn was able to become
transparent during a jump kick in his martial arts practice.
Billy and Alpha used the Power
Chamber's disrupter ray to destroy the Machine Skybase's power source, destroying
all of the active invisibility medallions and the Machine Empire's new fleet of ships in the
process; the inactivate medallions, on the other hand, were harmless,
according to Billy.
- device used to fill humans with intolerance
Apparently in elderly Tommy's story to his grandson, Klank invented a new weapon called the Bias
Blaster, and Mondo sent Sprocket to Earth
to use it on the teens.
The Bias Blaster's ray made the teens and Raymond only
care about their own viewpoints.
Zordon commented that Sprocket's Bias Blaster had tapped into
the most powerful evil known to mankind and
that weapons were useless against this hatred; the only way to stop the
spread of the evil was for each teen to find
within his heart the kindness and understanding that was the key to
every human soul.
- special alloy used to coat Machine Empire monsters with nearly indestructible armor
Mondo had a new
robotic technology planned, and he said his new, improved army would be unstoppable.
Mondo decided that
the time had come to initiate their new robotic fabrication process; he
asked Klank whether all of the
protective material been removed from the neo-plutonium mine, and nearly
all of it had been removed.
Mondo planned to coat
his army with an armored shield to make
Mondo, Sprocket, and Machina watched from a large opening in what
looked like an enormous facility as an assembly line of giant monsters (including Drill Master, a tentacle monster, Silo, Mechanizer, and the Hydro Contaminator) moved forward to
receive their neo-plutonium armor.
Mondo ordered Klank to release his entire army of
newly-reinforced soldiers; only three additional giant monsters (Drill Master, the tentacle monster, and Mechanizer) helped giant Silo fight the Super Zeozords.
The neo-plutonium armor didn't alter the monsters' appearance in any way.
- device used to transfer Tommy's strength and skills into Altor
After discovering the location of the abducted Tommy, Alpha observed a
very strong reading of Tommy's brainwave
activity, indicating that something was affecting Tommy's brainwaves, changing him.
Meanwhile, apparently in a room off the main area
of the Machine Arena, morphed Tommy was restrained in a chair with Gasket's Brain Drain device on his head.
In his mind, Tommy was
working on a console in the Power Chamber
when the White Ranger in the gallery
emerged from the glass with a green Tigerzord drawing effect and summoned Cogs to
capture Tommy; Prince
Gasket, apparently testing out the brain drain device, then appeared
in the Power Chamber and told Tommy that no one could help him now.
In reality, standing beside Tommy, who was hooked up to the brain drain, Gasket was pleased that the device was
finally working, saying he could go in and out of Tommy's thoughts and memories and bend them to his
will, making Tommy think and believe whatever Gasket wanted.
After sitting in the seat connected to Tommy's seat, with a helmet on Altor's head connected to the brain
drain helmet on Tommy's head, Altor absorbed Tommy's powers
into himself; afterward, he said he felt the strength of a hundred
According to Trider, the brain drain device was what Gasket used to transfer powers from captured
warriors into his machine monsters, a
practice which Gasket had been doing for
some time, yet in 442-Kng1, Gasket had been pleased that the brain drain
was finally working.
Due to his slightly altered brain chemistry from
his recent exposure to Gasket's brain
drain, Tommy was one of the few people on the planet who noticed the day repeating from the
presence of Gasket's Chronosapios; while almost
everyone else on the planet (including Zordon and Alpha) was
unaware of the repetition, Tommy (as well as Prince Sprocket, who became trapped in the
time loop when he went to Earth to set an
ambush) had a sense of deja vu about the day's events.
