Once Rito, Goldar and the Tengas left, Tommy attempted to remove the orb, only for it to attack him. Once Vile recited the first part of an incantation, the orb blew up as part of the process and the energy it released caused the Earth to stop spinning. Vile then recited the second verse of the incantion while using some of his own powers and reversed the planet's rotation and the ages of the Earth's population. This was done in a bid to allow Vile and the forces under Rita Repulsa and Lord Zedd to take control of the Earth, but their attack was thwarted by the arrival of the Alien Rangers of Aquitar. Soon Billy and the Alien Rangers created a re-generator that operated through the Earth team's Power Coins and would allow them to return to their normal ages, thus freeing them from the Orb of Doom's time reversal and allowing them to Morph again. Unfortunately only Billy was able to escape the spell as Rito and Goldar stole the machine and Rita and Zedd destroyed the power coins. Master Vile's & the Orb of Doom's effects were later undone when the Zeo Crystal was reassembled in the Command Center.
