Ninjor is a powerful Ninja that knows many mysteries and secrets of the Morphin Grid thanks to the books written by Morphing Masters which are stored within his temple. At some point he also forged the Power Coins, the Battle Borgs, and presumably the Shogunzords and the Aquitian Power Coins.
The Ninja Quest
When Rito Revolto destroyed the Thunderzords and damaged the first set of Power Coins permanently, the Power Rangers sought out Ninjor at the Temple of Power for assistance. At first, Ninjor wasn't easily convinced that the Rangers sought out the Ninja Power for the right reasons, but after hearing them out, he soon changed his mind. Ninjor bestowed on them new Power Coins, the Ninjazords, and from then on assisted the Rangers in battle whenever they needed him, such as providing Rocky with back-up when the other Rangers were turned into footballs by Centiback.
He was captured by Rita and Zedd to power the Shogunzords. At the same time, a mind-controlled Kat stole Kimberly's Crane power coin and seized the White Ninja Falconzord, putting the Ninjazords out of commission and leaving the Rangers vulnerable. They eventually got control of the Shogunzords and reclaimed the Falconzord, and Ninjor escaped shortly after. He was recaptured by Master Vile and linked to the Globbor monster, which caused all damage to Globbor to transfer to Ninjor, but he soon escaped again and helped the Rangers defeat Vile. He continued to assist the Rangers after this.
As a ninja master, Ninjor had a wide array of powers at his command. He had a large white cloud that he rode into battle on, and could disappear into puffs of smoke at will. Ninjor and his Temple of Power are both key elements to the Rangers maintaining their Ninja Powers.
After the Rangers became the Zeo Rangers, Ninjor wasn't seen again, and Tommy commented that he was once again residing at the Temple of Power. Following the destruction of the Ninja Power Coins, Ninjor reclaimed the Ninja Zords. It is unknown if he also reclaimed the Shogunzords as they were used by Alien Rangers. If they were still used by the team they more than likely transported to Aquitar.
|"Zordon sent us on a quest to find Ninjor, a warrior from the past who showed us the secrets of the ancient ninja."|
|―Tommy Oliver on Ninjor[src]|
Ninjor did not participate in the Legendary Battle nor appeared in Countdown to Destruction for unknown reasons. Unlike many Ranger-like allies, Ninjor was on Earth and available to fight, making his absence an oddity.
Ninjor's current whereabouts or if he still resides within the Temple of Power is unknown.
Helping the Senturion
In 2205 Ninjor was still residing inside his bottle in the Temple of Power until the Blue Senturion arrives with the intention of arresting him as he believes that Ninjor is responsible for the creation of the Evil Rangers that robbed the the Angel Grove Museum. Ninjor wasn't willing to cooperate as he wished to be left alone and even mocked the rookie cop by poking his eye when the Senturion picked up his bottle. However, when Ninjor overheard that the Rangers were related to the crime he grew curious and excitedly decided to join the Blue Senturion as his partner on the case, much to Blue Senturion’s chagrin.
After Ninjor discovers that the Rangers the Blue Senturion was after were Putties able to impersonate Rangers using an ancient artifact called The Badges of Darkness. Ninjor then meditates to track the energies of the Badges of Darkness, allowing him to sense one of Mesogog's Invisiportal that the Mutant Rangers escaped into. The two head later find themselves on a desert at night where the Blue Senturion tries to do a stakeout, much to Ninjor's impatience. The Mutant Rangers later appear disguised as the Turbo Rangers and they started digging the Red Zeo Battlezord on the desert, Ninjor and the Blue Senturion witness the Zord emerge from the ground.
Ninjor changes into his giant Battle Mode while the Senturion summons the Robo Racer, Ninjor kicks and tosses the Zeo Battlezord right into Robo Racer, damaging it but defeated the Rangers who later melt out of the Zeo Battlezord. Ninjor then commands the Zeo Battlezord and crashes at Venus as that was where the Mutant Rangers where going. The duo approaches Monsieur Muster's lair and Muster introduces himself to the the duo and deploys a large collection of Krybots, but the duo easily defeat the Krybots and later arrest Muster. Ninjor later repairs the Senturion's Robo Racer and they both say that they should work together again sometime, shaking hands and referring to each other as "BFFs of Justice".
Street Fighter Showdown
Escaping from his prison, Lord Drakkon made his way to where Ninjor was hiding and convinced him to repair his damaged Morpher and Power Coin, telling the sage that he came from the future and can't share too much information for fear of altering the timeline. Thus leaving the warrior unaware of what he had just done. When Drakkon returned to Finster 5 it was revealed that he captured Ninjor and used his powers to give himself a Samurai upgrade.

Power Rangers Legacy Wars
Ninjor is among the many Rangers who feature in Power Rangers Legacy Wars. he is a Epic (Leader), Epic(Assist) character.
As a ninja master, Ninjor had a wide array of powers at his command. He had a large white cloud that he rode into battle on, and could disappear into puffs of smoke at will. Ninjor and his Temple of Power are both key elements to the Rangers maintaining their Ninja Powers. In battle, Ninjor often wielded a ninjato blade.
"Ninjor Expansion Mode!"
He could also expand to the size of a Megazord (which he called "Ninjor Expansion Mode"), and was able to transform into a powerful samurai-esque Battle Mode.
Ninjor was able to transform into a powerful samurai-esque Battle Mode. When in Battle Mode, he could connect his weapon with its sheath to form a powerful lance. He was also able to generate and throw explosive fireballs from his hands, which were often instrumental in destroying Rita and Zedd's monsters. In order to transform into Battle Mode, Ninjor would usually call out "Ninja Power, Now!" or "Ninjor Expansion Mode!" and then transform. Typically they were just a distraction, so the Rangers could go in for the kill, but his fireball that hit at the same time as the Shogun Megazord sabre actually is what finished off Globbor, once all his energy was depleted. Ninjor was only seen changing into Battle Mode when he was in Expansion Mode; whether he can do it while human-sized is unknown though he did so before growing in the final fight versus Globbor.

Legendary Ranger Devices
The Ninjor Ranger Key is Ninjor’s personal Ranger Key. This key is exclusive to the Toyline. Of course as with all Ranger Keys, should it exist, it would be able to transform one, i.e. one of the Super Mega Rangers, into Ninjor.
Ninjor is one of the heroes that represent the Alien Rangers for the MMAR Dino Charger, released as part of a special set of Dino Charger Power Packs. In the Alien Rangers' case, it featured the Red Aquitar Ranger, Ninjor, the Shogun Megazord, and the MMAR title. This Charger was paired with the Super Megaforce Dino Charger.
Behind the scenes
Ninjor was planned to appear as one of many returning characters who would contribute to the story in Hexagon, the original plan for the season after Wild Force and adaptation of Hurricaneger. As Hurricaneger was a ninja team, Amit Bhaumik suggested that the Hexagon Rangers' (Hurricanegers) powers would likely be derived from Ninjor. However, the Hexagon plan was scrapped when Power Rangers was canceled and bought by Disney, and Hurricaneger became Power Rangers Ninja Storm. Being a more self-contained series, the Rangers of Ninja Storm had no known connection to Ninjor, despite their shared Ninja motif.
