Inner Spirit is the eighteenth episode of Power Rangers Zeo. This is the first of the four-episode story arc that features the quest for the other half of the arrowhead, as well as first appearance of the Red Battlezord.

Meanwhile, the Zeo Megazord is incapacitated in a battle with Main Drain, a monster that can drain the life force from mechanical beings, requiring Tommy to master the power of the new Red Battlezord to defeat him.
