|This article is about a/an weapon in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.|
The Sword of Light is an ancient artifact covered in dazzling jewels located on the Deserted Planet in the Furthest Galaxy. It has the ability to transfer and copy the Powers and Power Coins from an existing Power Ranger or Rangers to new ones. It was used to transfer the Ranger powers from Jason, Zack and Trini, to Rocky, Adam and Aisha. The sword by copying the veteran rangers powers to the new rangers simply depowered the veteran rangers and disconnected their Power Coins link to the Morphing Grid. This is proven in later seasons when stated that two rangers of the same power cannot exist at one time as it would unbalance the Morphing Grid and prove dangerous to both users.
This explains how Jason, Zack & Trini were able to return in both "Forever Red" and the "Legendary Battle". As their Power Coins and Morphers were simply re-powered and reconnected to the Morphing Grid.
The sword is also commonly mistaken for the Sword of Darkness and the Sword of Power, but it should be noted that all three are separate and distinct entities. They are not all the same sword, though they are present in the same series part (Mighty Morphin).
It is never explained why it was not needed to transfer Kimberly's powers to Katherine when she decided to retire as a ranger.
It was also not needed to transfer the Turbo Powers of the veteran rangers as they simply gave up their powers to the new set of rangers. This is due to the Turbo Powers being created by the Rangers themselves and the power source being based on Eltar. These powers were never bonded to the rangers on a biological and spiritual level like the Power Coins were.
Following the destruction of the Power Chamber the sword's current whereabouts or if it survived the explosion is unknown.
In the comic Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Pink, the Sword of Light is revealed to still be in the possession of Zordon and Alpha. It is used as a device to temporarily restore and upgrade the powers of past Power Rangers Kimberly Hart, Trini and Zack. It is able to make Kimberly a ranger again as unlike Jason, Zack and Trini who had their powers transferred to new rangers, Kimberly merely gave up her Power Coin, thus retaining her ranger powers themselves but without a coin or morpher was unable to morph. It was later stolen and used to power Goldar's War Zord Typhonis before being later recovered and returned to the Command Center.
