The Dark Warrior is a stealthy, army-colored ninja monster created by Finster. He serves as the titular main antagonist of the episode "Dark Warrior". 


Dark Warrior was created by Finster. Rita ordered Finster to create strong and intelligent monster to capture Trini's uncle Howard and make him open the formula of invisibility. And he created the Dark Warrior. Dark Warrior with army of Putties captured Howard and threatened to kill him, unless he reveal the formula of invisibility that he invented. Mr. Howard refused and the monster tied him to the bomb, which could destroy the entire city. He sent Trini a letter, where he wrote to give him formula. But the rangers with the help of Billy, saved uncle of Trini and deactivated the bomb. Then they fought the Dark Warrior. He was very fast in the battle and could reflect arrows of Kimberly with his sword. He also could shoot with powerful energy blasts from his cannon on his wrist. Rita enlarged him. In the giant battle Dark Warrior had a chain with blade on one end and iron balls on other end. But he didn't stand against Sword of Rangers and was destroyed by the Dino Megazord's Power Sword. Dark Warrior (episode)

Dark Warrior is also boss in the fifth level in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers video game for SNES.


Dark Warrior is violent, sadistic and ruthless monster. He is highly abusive and horrifying as he threatened Trini's uncle Howard and wanted him to open secret of his formula. He is also very arrogant and confident as he managed to fight the rangers and underestimated them, which led to his defeat. He is also very loyal to Rita.

Powers And Abilities

  • Strength: Dark Warrior is a extremely strong monster. A single swing of his sword could easily take down a Ranger. He could easily knock the Blade Blasters off of his blade with no trouble.
  • Durability-While not all that durable, he did seem to be rather strong. He was blasted by the DIno Megazord in Tank Mode and just rolled out of the way. A single punch from the Megazord only knocked him down for a second.
  • Agility: Dark Warrior is very agile monster. He was easily able to dodge and duck kicks from Zack.


  • Sword: Dark Warior wields a sword in battle. He can reflect arrows of Kimberly with his sword. It was lost when the Megazord knocked it upwards and away.
  • Laser Cannon: Dark Warrior has a cannon on his wrist, which can shoot white energy blasts. This was his strongest attack as it could take out all five Rangers in one hit. It could even badly damage the Zords and throw around the Rangers.
  • Chain: Dark Warrior wields a chain with blade on one side and iron balls on other side. It was powerful enough to entangle the Megazord while Warrior slashed it with the sickle. The chain was cut by the Power Sword while the blade was destroyed with him.

Behind The Scenes



  • The Dark Warrior is the first monster to say something immediately after growing which would become common in Power Rangers, beginning with Mad Magnet in Ninja Storm.
    • The Dark Warrior is also the first monster to speak after growing as opposed to just grunting or laughing.
  • In Power Rangers, Dark Warrior was not defeated before being grown and was made into a giant at random. He was actually beaten before growing in Zyuranger but it was cut for three reasons; 1.It involved him being impaled by shurikens. 2.It featured Trini doing a ninja doppledanger attack despite her not being a ninja. 3.The sciecetist's daughter from the original plotline was clearly there in the shot of him being hit.
