Zordon is a fictional character from the Power Rangers franchise who serves as the Rangers' mentor. Zordon first appeared on the first season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and appears in subsequent seasons until the conclusion of Power Rangers in Space.
Ten thousand years ago, Zordon clashed with his nemesis Rita Repulsa on Earth. During their final battle, Rita traps Zordon in a time warp while Zordon seals Rita and her minions away in a "dumpster" on the Moon. After the battle ends, Zordon, with the aid of his robot assistant Alpha 5, creates a Command Center in California's desert outside the city of Angel Grove. He then creates the Power Morphers, the Power Coins, and the Dinozords. When Rita Repulsa is released from the dumpster, Zordon recruits five teenagers from Angel Grove (Jason Lee Scott, Zack Taylor, Kimberly Hart, Trini Kwan and Billy Cranston) to become the Power Rangers, giving them the Power Morphers, the Power Coins and the Dinozords to battle Rita.
Zordon goes on to mentor the Rangers over several years, creating the Zeo and Turbo powers to combat the threats of the Machine Empire and Divatox. Over time, Zordon upgrades their Command Center - first into the Power Chamber and then into the Turbo Chamber.
After some time has passed, Zordon and Alpha leave Earth for Eltar, leaving the Turbo Rangers under the mentorship of Dimitria and her assistant Alpha 6, but return a short while later to attend the transfer of the Turbo powers.
Months after his departure, Zordon is captured by Dark Specter, who slowly drains him of his powers. Soon after, Dark Specter launches his conquest of the universe and moves Zordon to the Dark Fortress, Astronema's base. After Dark Specter is killed by Darkonda, Andros, the Red Space Ranger, travels to the Dark Fortress and finds Zordon. Zordon convinces Andros to shatter his energy tube, allowing his good energy to destroy the forces of evil. Zordon's death creates an energy wave which travels throughout the universe, turning Lord Zedd, Rita, and Divatox into humans, Astronema into her former self Karone and the other villains into sand.
Several years later, one of Zordon's students, Gosei, is shown to be the Megaforce Rangers' mentor.
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie
Lord Zedd and Rita Repulsa free Ivan Ooze, who destroys the Command Center and Zordon's energy tube. Zordon is left on the verge of death. With Zordon dying, the Rangers travel to Phaedos in order to obtain the Great Power needed to revive him. After achieving their goal on Phaedos with the help of Dulcea, the Rangers return to Earth and defeat Ivan Ooze. Having succeeded, they return to the Command Center to find Zordon, lifeless. The Rangers then use the Great Power to bring Zordon back to life.
