"You have nothing to fear, Ninjor is here!"
―Ninjor[src]

"Evil makes me so angry! That.. just.. BURNS ME UP! I'm up to good, Ninja Power now! Behold the power of ninja!"
―Ninjor after transforming into his Battle Mode[src]

Ninjor is the creator of the Power Coins and an ally of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.

Character History

Ninjor knows many mysteries and secrets of the Morphin Grid thanks to the books written by Morphing Masters which are stored within his temple.

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.

Ninjor resided inside a vase within the Temple of Power, which was itself located in the Desert of Despair. He was also the creator of the original Power Coins, the Battle Borgs, and presumably the Shogunzords and the Aquitian Power Coins. 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.

Legacy of Power

Ninjor was featured in a chronicle of Power Ranger history compiled by Tommy Oliver shortly after he formed the Dino Rangers, which was found by the nascent Ranger team in the Dino Lab. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Legacy of Power

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.

Split History

Ninjor in the comics

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.Comicicon.png COMIC STORY- Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (Boom! Studios) Issue 25 When Drakkon returned to Finster 5 it was revealed that he captured Ninjor and used his powers to give himself a Samurai upgrade.Comicicon.png COMIC STORY- Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (Boom!

Forms

Ninjor

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.


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.

Appearances: MMPR S3 Episodes 7-9, 11, 18, 31, 32


Legendary Ranger Devices

The Ninjor Ranger Key.

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.


MMAR Dino Charger

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

Hexagon

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.

Notes

  • Kim Strauss' portrayal of Ninjor had a vocal tone reminiscent of the classic cartoon character Dudley Do-Right.
  • Since he has a Ranger key and is in the poster of Blue Rangers as of Ninja Steel, he can therefore be considered a Ranger.
  • Ninjor is the first Power Rangers character to receive a toy in 3 Power Rangers lines. His first toy was as himself, in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, and was later repurposed as Ninjakon for Power Rangers Ninja Storm. Ninjakon would then be repurposed slightly for Power Rangers Jungle Fury.
  • He is the only Ranger ally to appear in archive footage on the Dino Thunder episode "Legacy of Power".
  • Ninjor uses the same sound effect just before his transformation into Battle Mode as the Thunder Megazord uses before drawing the Thunder Saber for its final attack.
  • Ninjor is playable for Power Rangers Legacy Wars in August 2017.
