This article is about a/an villain in Power Rangers Turbo, the third installment in the Zordon Era .

Maligore was an all-powerful evil being and former fiance of Divatox who appeared as the main antagonist in Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie.


Maligore, known as The Great Flame of Destruction, was an ancient, lava-like demon entombed on the Island of Muiranthias thousands of years ago by the ancestors of the alien wizard Lerigot. Divatox wanted to resurrect Maligore, then wed him so they could control the universe together. His temple is guarded by the indigenous people of Muranthias called the Malykians.

Divatox sacrificed Kimberly Hart and Jason Lee Scott to Maligore's pit of flames, Kimberly and Jason were both returned as evil beings but when Lerigot freed them from the evil. Divatox sacrifices Elgar to give more powers to Maligore. An enraged Maligore awakened and rose from the lava. After pummeling the Turbo Rangers, he became enormous and battled their Turbo Megazord. Though he was clearly the stronger combatant, the Megazord managed to knock the demon off a cliff and into the sea, slaying Maligore and ruining Divatox's plan. Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie

The Grand Monarch of Evil, Dark Specter, looked exactly like Maligore, but had the ability to speak and was far more powerful. Their similarity was even commented upon by Divatox, saying "You remind me of my Fiancee". From Out of Nowhere

Powers and Abilities

Maligore could turn people evil (at least while he was in his pit), grow to giant size, and he could project flames from his claws (at least in giant form). He also appeared to be resistant to the Rangers' laser attacks.


  • While Divatox did commit to matrimony with him, it is worth noting that she did openly cringe when she saw him.
  • It is presumably that Maligore and Dark Specter were identical twin brothers or at least, members of the same species.
  • It is possible that Maligore is not as evil and arrogant as Dark Specter, but is still in his own way menacing.

Behind the Scenes

  • The resemblance between Maligore and Dark Specter is due to the Maligore costume used in TAPRM's being reused for Dark Specter.
