This article is about a/an episode in Power Rangers Dino Charge.

A Fool's Hour is the third episode of Power Rangers Dino Charge. This episode marks the debut appearance of the Rangers' armored Dino Steel Mode. The Stego Zord and the Tricera Zord are also awakened, making way for the first combination of the Dino Charge Megazord, the Tri-Stego Formation.


Sledge arrives on Earth to confront Keeper and the Rangers. He gives them a deadline to return the Energems, but coming up with a plan to fight back gets compromised when Tyler goes after Fury on his own. Can the Rangers figure out how to work as a team?

Dino Chargers


  • When Tyler tries to communicate with the others using his Dino Com, the screen is cracked, but Sledge was shown to have punched him in the chest, so it is unclear just how the device was damaged.
    • It's possible that when he landed on the ground after Sledge punched them, he also landed on his Dino Com.


  • Debut of the Stego Zord, Tricera Zord and the Dino Charge Megazord (in its default Tri-Stego Formation).
  • This episode marks the first cameo for the previously unnamed grunt which are later called Spikeballs.
  • There are references to Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger in this episode:
    • In that scene, Duplicon can be seen in one of the cells.
    • Koda's "Caveman Toss" is a nod to his Sentai counterpart's habit of using wrestling moves.
    • Koda is humming the Kyoryuger theme song and rhythm in the finale scene. Yoshi Sudarso admits to this on twitter. [1]
      • Thanks to that, this is the second episode, and the first since Dino Thunder's Lost & Found in Translation, to feature music from Super Sentai.
      • Chase, in the intro scene in the Command Center, did the same thing albeit singing to the following lyric, "Baby, I just can't say maybe."
    • Wrench says "That stings!" which is a translation of his Sentai counterpart's catchphrase.
    • Shelby nicknames her zord, "Tricera", a parallel to her Sentai counterpart's Zyudenryu name, "Dricera".
    • This is the second episode where Chase calls himself "the hotshot", a reference to his Sentai counterpart's moniker, "the hotshot brave".
    • When the rangers access Dino Steel Mode, they shout, "armor on", a nod to Kyoryuger's "armed on".
