Followed byPower Rangers S.P.D.

Power Rangers Dino Thunder is the twelfth season of the American television series, Power Rangers. This incarnation of Power Rangers was adapted from Bakuryū Sentai Abaranger, the 27th entry of Toei Company's long-running Super Sentai franchise.[1] Dino Thunder was also the subtitle of the Korean dub of Abaranger in South Korea and had a similar/identical logo to the American version as well. The series is notable as it features the return of Jason David Frank as Tommy Oliver[2][3] and a dinosaur theme for the powers, abilities and assets of most of the series' protagonists and antagonists. It was the first series to be aired on Toon Disney as part of Jetix.[4][5]

Plot[edit]

A soccer player, a computer expert, a singer and then eventually both an artist and a teacher with a long history of such situations become Power Rangers to help save Earth from the ruthless scheming of the dinosauric Mesogog who wishes to eradicate all human life and return Earth to the age of dinosaurs. Mesogog is assisted in his ways by Elsa, Zeltrax, and an army each of both Tyrannodrones and Triptoids as well as monsters that they call their Mutations.

In this season, Tommy Oliver, from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (starting from part 1 of season 1's 5-part story, 'Green With Evil') to Power Rangers Turbo (Tommy's last appearance in the franchise onwards would be in the final scene of part 2 of Turbo's two-part story 'Passing the Torch' (episodes 18 to 19)) fame with a guest appearance in Wild Force's Red Ranger team-up special 'Forever Red', returns as a paleontology professor in Reefside, California and so he is known as Dr. Tommy Oliver (sometimes named by some in short as Dr. O). When he is assigned three detention students by Principle Randall (the human disguise of Elsa):

  • athlete Conner McKnight
  • computer expert Ethan James
  • singer Kira Ford

...they end up finding three Dino Gems - one for each teen, paving the way for their destiny as Dino Rangers.

  • Conner gains the powers of both the Tyrannozord and super running speed
  • Ethan gains the powers of both the Tricerazord and energy-formed skin-shield defense
  • Kira gains the powers of both the Pterazord and sonic screams

Five episodes into the series, Tommy once again becomes a Power Ranger by bonding with the Black Dino Gem (and receiving its power of invisibility - the first of two Dino Gem powers related to stealth) and therefore becoming the Black Dino Ranger (and ultimately becoming the first Power Ranger in history to also bear the role of the mentor of a new team of Rangers) and they are also later joined by Anton Mercer's adopted son Trent (some media reveals his family name, after 'Mercer', to be 'Fermandez' - 'Fermandez-Mercer') as the White Dino Ranger, whose White Dino Gem grants him the power of camouflage (another Dino Gem power related to stealth) - before he joins, he must deal with the inner struggle of good and evil (as Tommy himself once had to do as the evil Green Ranger) because he gained his powers from a raw Dino Gem in Mesogog's lab, with the powers originally intended to be Mesogog's. Mesogog is, in fact, Trent's adopted father, who, in a faulty lab experiment, began to mutate into Mesogog. Trent later sides with good and saves his father from the mutation.

During the course of the series, the team adds the following to its arsenal of Zords: Cephalozord (based on the Pachycephalosaurus), Dimetrozord (based on the Dimetrodon), Stegozord (based on the Stegosaurus), Parasaurzord (based on the Parasaurolophus), and Ankylozord (based on the Ankylosaurus). The Stegozord later combines with Trent's Dragozord (based on the Tupuxuara) to form the Dino Stegozord, effectively stealing the Stegozord. Tommy is paired with the Brachiozord (based on the Brachiosaurus), a carrier Zord for most, but not all, of the other Zords. Conner is also later given the powers of the Shield of Triumph to morph into the Triassic Ranger for extra power and pilots the Mezodon Rover/Megazord (based on the Styracosaurus), the Zord that corresponds with the Triassic Ranger powers, which can combine with the Cephalo, Dimetro, Parasaur and Ankylozords to form the Triceramax Megazord.

At the end of the series, the Rangers destroy Mesogog with their raw Dino Gem powers combined into a single last-resort attack which burns out the gems in the process beyond any possibility of the powers restoring at all (Just before this final battle, they are forced to sacrifice the Zords in their last battle with Zeltrax). Finally they return to their normal lives.

Cast and characters[edit]

Dino Thunder Rangers[edit]

The Dino Rangers morph by drawing power from their respective Dino Gems, which Tommy grants Conner's, Ethan's and Kira's the ability to morph into Dino Morphers whenever needed (Morph call: "Dino Thunder, Power Up!"). They use their abilities to battle the villain Mesogog. By calling out "Super Dino Mode", the Power Rangers tap into the power of the dinosaurs, with spikes extending into view on their suits and, in the case of Kira, wings with Trent's own Super Dino Mode possessing an exclusive extra factor: bladed thin spikes extending from his hands. Each Dino Gems has a special power; red is speed; blue is armor; yellow is hyper screeching; black and white are similar, being invisibility and camouflage, which means Tommy and Trent both use stealth-themed powers with their Gems. In Power Rangers Dino Fury, the Dino Gems are created by Morphin Masters.[6][7]

  • Conner McKnight (portrayed by James Napier) - The Red Dino Ranger and Triassic Ranger who gained super-speed. He is also the leader of the team.[a][9][10][11][12][13][14][15][16][17][18]
  • Ethan James (portrayed by Kevin Duhaney) - The Blue Dino Ranger who gained the ability to harden his skin - energy-formed skin-like armor defense.[19][10][11][12][15][18][16][17]
  • Kira Ford (portrayed by Emma Lahana) - The Yellow Dino Ranger who gained a sonic scream.[15][18][16][17]
  • Dr. Tommy Oliver (portrayed by Jason David Frank) - The Black Dino Ranger and previously the Green and White Rangers, Zeo Ranger V Red and the first Red Turbo Ranger. When he gained the Black Dino Gem, it granted him invisibility - this allows the benefit of stealth. He is also the second-in-command of the team.[20][21][22][23][24][25]
  • Trent Fernandez (portrayed by Jeffrey Parazzo) - The White Dino Ranger (for most of the time in this series, his personal morph call is "White Ranger - Dino Power!" - Trent rarely uses the same morph call as the other Rangers) who gained camouflage abilities.[10][11][12][26][27][13][24][25]

Zords[edit]

Biozords[edit]

The Biozords were created by Tommy Oliver and Anton Mercer, merging dinosaur-like reptile DNA with machines.[28]

  • Tyrannozord: Conner McKnight's personal Zord that forms most of the Thundersaurus Megazord.[28][9]
  • Tricerazord: Ethan James' personal Zord that forms the right arm of the Thundersaurus Megazord.[28][9]
  • Pterazord: Kira Ford's personal Zord that forms the chest armor and helmet of the Thundersaurus Megazord.[28][9]
  • Dragozord: Trent Fermandez's personal Tupuxuara Zord piloted by Trent Fernandez.[28][11]
  • Stegozord: A Stegosaurus Zord which Trent later takes for himself from the other Rangers during his time as his White Dino Gem's powers being unstably against his control - after Trent's powers are relaxed from their unsettled condition, the Stegozord continues to be a part of his own Zord arsenal with the other Rangers rarely reusing it themselves as it, following Trent gaining it, also serves as being one of the DinoStegazord's components.[28][29]
  • Mezodon: a Styracosaurus zord piloted by Conner McKnight while in his Triassic Ranger form.[28][30]
  • Triassic Megarover: A chariot pulled by the Mezodon.[30]
  • Cephalazord: A Pachycephalosaurus Zord.[28][31]
  • Dimetrozord: A Dimetrodon Zord.[28][32]
  • Parasaurzord: A Parasaurolophus Zord.[28][11][12]
  • Ankylozord: An Ankylosaurus Zord.[33]
  • Brachiozord: A black Brachiosaurus Zord piloted by Tommy Oliver.[28][31]

Megazords[edit]

  • Thundersaurus Megazord: The combination of Tyrannozord, Tricerazord and Pterazord. Armed with Tyranno Tail, Tricera Fist and Pterarang. The finisher uses the Tyrannozord's tail as a Dino Drill.[28][9]
    • Thundersaurus Incomplete: The combination without Pterazord.[34]
    • Thundersaurus Auxiliary Combinations. Thundersaurus Megazord combines with a few auxiliary Zords in random different combinations that each supply a benefit, such as weapons or forms of transportation (example: flight):
      • Thundersaurus Megazord with Cephala Puncher: A combination with the Cephalazord replacing Tricerazord as the right arm - this combination's finisher is the Cephala Power Punch.[31]
      • Thundersaurus Megazord with Dimetro Saw-Blade: A combination with the Dimetrozord replacing Dino Drill as the left arm - this combination's finisher is the Dimetro Saw Blade attack.[32]
      • Thundersaurus Megazord with Stego Surfboard: The Stegozord's back opens so that the Stegozord serves as a surfboard used by the Thundersaurus Megazord.[29]
      • Thundersaurus Megazord with Parasaur Cutter: A combination with the Parasaurzord replacing Dino Drill as the left arm - this combination's finisher is the Parasaur Final Cut.[11][12]
      • Thundersaurus Megazord with Ankylo Drill: A combination with the Ankylozord replacing Tricerazord as the right arm - this combination's finisher is the Ankylo Double Drill.[33]
      • Thundersaurus Megazord with Ankylo Drill and Parasaur Cutter: A combination with the Ankylozord and Parasaurzord replacing the Tricerazord and Dino Drill as the arms - the Megazord is armed with both the Parasaur Cutter (Parasaurzord) and the Ankylo Drill (Ankylozord).[35]

It should also be noted that Thundersaurus Megazord has a visual potential to combine not just with either two of the Cephala, Dimetro, Parasaur or Ankylozords in random 1-auxiliary or 2-auxiliary interchangeable combinations but with either the Stegozord or the Dragozord as well to the possible point of the Megazord also combining with the Stegozord, the Dragozord and either two of the Cephalo, Dimetro, Parasaur or Ankylozords all at once to form a 6-Zord-formed enhancement combination formation.

  • DinoStegazord: The combination of Dragozord and Stegozord. Armed with Stega Stinger. Its finishers are DinoStegazord Stinger and DinoStega Laser.[28][12]
    • DinoStegazord Auxiliary Combinations. Like the Thundersaurus Megazord, the DinoStegazord combines with any of the Cephala, Dimetro, Parasaur or Ankylozords in either 1-auxiliary or 2-auxiliary combinations:
      • Dino Stegazord with Cephala Puncher and Dimetro Saw Blade: The combination of Dino Stegazord with Cephalazord and Dimetrozord - the finishers for this combination are both the Cephala Power Punch and Dimetro Saw Blade attack.[36]
      • Dino Stegazord with Ankylo Drill and Parasaur Cutter: The combination of Dino Stegazord with Ankylozord and Parasaurzord - the finishers for this combination are both the Ankylo Double Drill and Parasaur Final Cut.[37]
  • Mezodon Megazord: The combination of Mezodon and Triassic Megarover - the finishers are the Hatchet Attack and the Wheel Spin.[38]
    • Triceramax Megazord: The combination of Mezodon Megazord with the Cephala, Dimetro, Parasaur and Ankylozords - this formation uses the Tricera Lance and its finisher is Turbo Fire.[28][39]
    • Valkasaurus Megazord: The combination of Thundersaurus Megazord, Dino Stegazord, Triceramax Megazord's helmet and Mezodon Megazord's hatchets.[37]

When the powerful White Dino Gem goes missing from Mesogog's fortress, a monster is sent to lure out whoever stole it. Mesogog's plan works, and the renegade White Ranger appears, easily defeating the beast and forcing the Rangers to retreat.
Conner and Kira are sent to locate a new Dino Egg, only to find it in the White Ranger's possession. Hayley alerts the team to the Angor monster's presence, and the Thundersarus Megazord duels it while Tommy goes to confront the White Ranger and retrieve the Dino Egg. While the Megazord defeats the monster with help from the newly-hatched Parasaur Zord, which gives the Megazord the scissor blade, Tommy fails, and the Drago Zord is hatched.
The White Ranger steals the Rangers' Stego Zord and combines it with his Drago Zord to form the Dino Stegozord, which blasts the Thundersarus Megazord apart. While a trio of auxiliary Zords is sent into battle, Conner dukes it out with the White Ranger and unlocks his Super Dino Mode. Later, Tommy discovers the White Ranger's true identity as Trent but is encased in amber before telling the others.

Conner becomes a brainiac, Ethan, a jock, Kira turns into a valley girl that loves shopping, Cassidy becomes a nerd, and Devin becomes the coolest kid in school. The Rangers face off against the now-aggressive monster and defeat him with Trent's help, who has been turned good by the meteor's rays.

November 20, 2004 (2004-11-20)
Mesogog tortures Anton Mercer and shows Elsa his latest plan. This giant cannon can defeat the Rangers and transform Earth into the age of the Dinosaurs. For that, he will need the powers within the Dino Gems. But he will also need the power he gave Elsa. So he drains Elsa's power, turning her back into a human no longer under his control. She is rescued by the Rangers and taken to the Dino Lab. Trent pretends to make a deal with Mesogog, allowing the Rangers to invade and destroy Mesogog's cannon. Trent returns with Anton Mercer intact. Zeltrax comes to the Dino Lab and kills it, and takes Elsa away. The Rangers return from Mesogog's island to the Dino Lab, where they find it destroyed. Hayley finds their hidden camera, and they learn that Zeltrax has taken Elsa. Meanwhile, Zeltrax unleashes his Zelzord. Ethan finds the Zelzord, reports it to the Rangers, morphs, and joins them. As Zeltrax destroys the city with the Triptoids, Trent fights them, while Tommy summons the Zords and they form the Thundersaurus Megazord. Tommy goes into the Zelzord with Kira, where they destroy Zeltrax, but the Zelzord survives, and the Rangers sacrifice their Zords to destroy it. The Rangers meet on the ground, where they find Mesogog, who survived the battle. He tells them that they have foiled his plans. Still, he absorbs enough Dino Gem energy to complete his transmutation, the Mesomonster, and fights them until the Triassic Ranger knocks him down. However, he clones himself, so the Rangers use their Dino Gems to create an unstoppable power that destroys the Mesomonsters, sacrificing their powers in process. Cassidy and Devin discover the Rangers' identities, but do not wish to expose it because the Rangers are their friends. The Rangers who have no longer their power, go to prom, where Conner says he will open a Soccer camp, and Ethan will take part in a video game competition, and he is practicing now since he will not lose again. Trent is going to Art School, and Anton is the happiest to hear it. The series ends with Kira singing a song with memories about their life.

Production[edit]

Due to the mention that Power Rangers solely existed as a comic book in Power Rangers Ninja Storm, many fans believed that series existed in a different universe than that of the original Power Rangers series. (However, Power Rangers in Space had previously mentioned a Ranger-based comic book in its crossover with Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation). Fans also believed this due to the lack of a Ninja Storm/Wild Force team-up episode, partly due to the actors refusing to come since much of the production crew had been laid off as well as the change in hands of the Power Rangers franchise from Saban to Disney and filming locations from United States to New Zealand. Executive producer Douglas Sloan also received heavy criticism for not tying Ninja Storm in with the original universe.

To tie up all of the loose Ninja Storm ends, and to try to bring in a larger audience, Sloan brought back Jason David Frank and his original character, the once evil turned hero, green, white, red, and now black ranger from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers through Power Rangers Turbo, Tommy Oliver, a legendary Power Ranger, as a mentor for the new team as well as a fellow Power Ranger. Jason Frank has said that he did the show as a favor for Sloan. Through the episodes "Legacy of Power" (the 500th episode overall), a look back on all of the previous Power Rangers series; "Back in Black", giving Tommy new Power Ranger powers; "Fighting Spirit", seeing Tommy encounter his previous Ranger forms and airing on the eleventh anniversary of Power Rangers no less; and "Thunder Storm", a team-up arc between Dino Thunder and Ninja Storm, all previous series were included in the original Power Rangers universe.

Also in the season premiere "Day of the Dino", Mesogog knew of Lothor as he mentioned Reefside would believe he had returned to town, although Blue Bay Harbor was Lothor's target in Ninja Storm. However considering Conner's twin brother attended the Wind Ninja Academy it is possible the two towns are relatively nearby one another, explaining Mesogog's statement.

Dino Thunder also was the first Power Rangers series to overtly acknowledge its Super Sentai roots with an episode entitled "Lost and Found in Translation," which featured a Japanese show based on the Power Rangers dubbed in English. In actuality, the footage used in that episode was from episode 10 ("Abare League Bind") of Dino Thunder's source series, Bakuryū Sentai Abaranger, dubbed in a manner similar to the comedic parody dub of Kagaku Sentai Dynaman in the late 1980s.

Video games[edit]

There were two games produced for Dino Thunder. On the Game Boy Advance, there was a sidescrolling game, which was a platformer involving fighting several villains from the series. The other game was produced for the PlayStation 2 and the Nintendo GameCube. This was the first Power Rangers game produced on a sixth generation console. All the action takes place inside the zords. This game also had some inconsistencies with the television series to allow the action to take place in the zords while battling the regular enemies who were human size.

Home media[edit]

A complete box set was released in Region 2 on July 14, 2008.

Shout! Factory released the entire series as part of their "Seasons 8 – 12" DVD box set, with an individual complete Region 1 season following in October 2016.

Notes[edit]
