"I'll go after Zordon. You are needed on Earth. This disk controls the Delta Megaship. It's a mighty weapon. You'll need it. You must retrieve it immediately. It is completely unprotected."
―Phantom Ranger[src]

The Phantom Ranger is a mysterious Ranger from his current home Eltar who helped the Turbo Rangers battle Divatox in Power Rangers Turbo.



Arrival on Earth[]


Phantom Ranger on Earth.

Phantom Ranger first arrived on Earth in his spaceship, landing in the woods of Angel Grove. He prevented Elgar and his group from stealing from a bank and a gold mine. As he spent most of his time invisible, no one, with the exception of Cassie Chan, could spot the Phantom properly. After rescuing the Turbo Rangers from trouble, the Pink Ranger asked who he was and Phantom Ranger replied, "a friend", before disappearing. From that point on, the Phantom Ranger appeared to be fond of Cassie, though perhaps not in the same way she was fond of him. He was able to prevent his ship from being destroyed by Divatox's torpedoes and saved Justin's friend, Nico, in the process. When the danger had passed, the Phantom Ranger departed in his space ship, giving the Rangers the impression he had left for good. Tvicon TV STORY-The Phantom Phenomenon

Although Phantom Ranger had taken off in his space ship, he did not necessarily leave Angel Grove. He continued to help when he was needed, such as fighting Translucitor. Tvicon TV STORY-Vanishing Act He even gave the Rangers their new Rescuezords, after losing the Turbozords to Divatox and General Havoc. Tvicon TV STORY-One Last Hope

Fall of the Phantom[]

Divatox and her brother General Havoc used their knowledge of the Rangers to set a trap for him, hoping to obtain the Phantom's power ruby. After kidnapping Cassie and turning her to stone, the Phantom tried to use his Ruby to revive her, but was tricked by Havoc, who posed as Cassie and stole the Ruby from him. Up on the Space Base, Divatox would've destroyed both him and Cassie had she not rebelled, allowing them both the chance to escape. However, without his ruby, his life force was draining away and Phantom Ranger feared that he would soon perish.

Sometime after his escape, Phantom Ranger retreated to the tunnels where his ship was located and collapsed just mere inches away from it, exhausted of all strength. Tvicon TV STORY-The Fall of the Phantom

Clash of the Megazords[]

Cassie and T.J. ventured down into the tunnel system and found him and brought him to the Power Chamber. The power of the chamber kept him stable, but Dimitria had told them without his ruby, the Phantom would die. The Rangers, after some difficulty, got the Phantom's ruby back. Cassie placed it on Phantom Ranger and after several moments he came to, rejuvenated. He thanked the Rangers and prepared to leave, but Cassie wanted to know where he was going. Phantom Ranger told her that he would go where he was needed and remain until his presence was unnecessary. In that sense, the Phantom Ranger believed the Earth was in good hands with the Rangers and departed. Tvicon TV STORY-Clash of the Megazords

Powers and Abilities[]


  • Invisibility: The Phantom had the ability to become invisible, however, the space he occupied was often seen contorted or misshapen, an effect akin to that of the Predator character from the Predator franchise. He was powered by his Power Ruby on his chest, which gave him his powers and sustained both his life force and the systems in his suit. The Phantom is also able to exist outside of "temporal control".

Behind the Scenes[]



  • Shuki Levy's original pitch for the character was that he was to represent an embodiment of the spirits of fallen Power Rangers of the past as a "Ghost Robot" (a concept affirmed by Jackie Marchand and Tony Oliver).[1] Judd Lynn has admitted "we ran out time before we were able to fully develop a story for the Phantom Ranger with everything going on". When asked what he'd do for the Phantom Ranger's identity if he had the chance, Lynn said he'd make him Billy Cranston and explain that his "man made" Phantom powers were limited (as a way of explaining his limited appearances); Billy would have created Ecliptor as a failed Robot Ranger experiment "and in order to correct that mistake he created the Phantom Ranger powers". [2]

Legendary Ranger Devices[]

PRSM-Phantom Ranger Key

The Phantom Ranger Key.

The Phantom Ranger Key is the Phantom Ranger’s personal Ranger Key. This key is exclusive to the Toyline and has been seen at the SDCC 2014 convention. 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 the Phantom Ranger.

PRNS2 & PRSNS-Phantom Ranger Ninja Power Star

Phantom Ranger Ninja Power Star

"Legendary Black Star! Activate!"
―announcement in the DX Ninja Battle Morpher

The Phantom Ranger Ninja Power Star is a special Ninja Power Star that bears the likeness of the Phantom Ranger and is marked with the kanji for "black". This star is exclusive to the Super Ninja Steel toyline.


  • The Phantom Ranger's homeworld was originally meant to be a purple planet named "Phantus" in a draft script for Turbo[3].
  • In Turbo's Super Sentai counterpart, Gekisou Sentai Carranger, Phantom Ranger's Sentai counterpart, VRV Master was actually more of an Extra Hero and not an official Ranger. This marks the first time in which a non-Ranger Sentai character has been designated as a Ranger in the series.
  • A toy-exclusive action figure called the Phantom Ranger was made in the Dino Thunder toy line, made from assembling weapons and equipment from each of the six Rangers (Triassic was the sixth Ranger). Other than the name, no relation is implied between the two.
  • The Phantom Ranger is the only Ranger whose identity has not been revealed to this day.
    • As a joke on April 1st, 2015, the official Power Rangers Twitter page made a post claiming that the Phantom Ranger's true identity was none other than Chip Lynn![4]
