Beauty and the Beach is the third episode of Power Rangers Ninja Storm.


Marah and Kapri create a clone of Tori, which attempts to infiltrate Ninja Ops. The real Tori stops her, and the Rangers destroy Lothor's latest monster - Copybot.


Tori gets annoyed at Shane for not introducing her to some dude at the beach who was asking about her. The guys try to explain to Tori how she is more of a "guy-girl" but only make things worse. To prove her girliness, she takes up an offer she gets to be in a photo shoot for Girl Sport magazine. She gets to the location of the shoot which turns out to be a trap set by Marah and Kapri. They zap her with a camera which clones her and traps the original. The evil Tori goes to Storm Chargers and demands to be taken to Ninja Ops. The real Tori summons the rising waters to help her escape her prison. She then stands in the way of the van on the way to Ninja Ops. Lothor chews out the girls for botching up the plan and has Zurgane send down a monster. As the two Toris battle it out, Copybot appears and takes on the guys. Shane and Dustin morph and battle Copybot. Tori defeats her double with a water blast. She joins her teammates who aren't sure it's her at first until she tells them their secrets only she knows. The three battle their way through a group of Kelzaks. Tori does a flood attack on Copybot, submerging him in water. They form the Storm Striker and destroy him. Lothor revives Copybot and makes him grow into a giant. The Rangers form the Megazord but it's no match for Copybot's clones. Cam has the Rangers engage the Megazord's Lightning mode. Lightning mode only lasts 60 seconds. Its amazing speed and agility make short work of Copybot's clone. The Megazord reverts back to normal and finishes off Copybot with the Serpent Sword. At the store, the guys push Tori to help a certain customer. The customer is Dill, the guy from the beach who was asking about her. Up in Lothor's ship, the Thunder Rangers prepare to strike.



  •  It is revealed that Shane has arachnophobia, Dustin's real name is Waldo (it is not explained if Dustin is his middle name or a nickname) and Tori's surname is Hanson.
  • This is one of the very few episodes where a monster is not defeated to the theme tune of the series, a trend common between Turbo through Wild Force but wouldn't occur again regularly until Overdrive four years after this episode first aired.
  • This marks the first appearance of the Storm Megazord's Lightning Mode.
  • This episode's name appears to be based on the film Beauty and the Beast.
  • This is the only episode of Ninja Storm where the Wind Rangers' visors are opened with Tori unmorphed.


  • After the Storm Megazord had entered Lightning Mode, Cam said that the Rangers had twenty seconds left when only thirty seconds had passed. Roughly fifteen seconds after the above statement, Cam said there were only ten seconds left and then fifteen seconds after that statement the Megazord converted back (ironically the Storm Megazord was in Lightning Mode for roughly sixty seconds, it was simply Cam's timing that was badly off).
    • Also, the amount of time it was in Lightning Mode seemed arbitrary since Cam himself deactivated the formation's powered up mode and not the formation itself.
      • It's not even evident why this 60 second idea was introduced, especially since the later episode Shane's Karma Parts I and II would contradict this by having the formation last for significantly longer.
  • Tori seems to know who Marah and Kapri are despite meeting them for the first time.
