This article is about a/an ranger in Power Rangers Zeo, the second installment in the Zordon Era, and Power Rangers Turbo.

For the Boom Studios comic version of this character, see Tanya Sloan (2016 comic).

Tanya Sloan is Zeo Ranger II Yellow of the Zeo Rangers and first Yellow Turbo Ranger of the Turbo Rangers.

Character History

Mighty Morphin Alien Rangers

Tanya as a child.

When the evil Master Vile reversed time and rendered all the Power Rangers as helpless children, they were sent through time to collect the fragments of a mystical item called the Zeo Crystal. The current Yellow Ranger, Aisha Campbell, traveled to Africa where she encountered a lion, right before she gets eaten, she gets rescured by a young girl name Tanya Sloan. Though she found her Zeo Sub-crystal, Aisha wished to stay in Africa to help sick animals, and so Tanya agreed to return to the present in her place.

When the five Zeo Sub-crystals were finally reunited, and Master Vile's tampering with time was undone, Tanya discovered that she had grown into a teenager along with the other Rangers. (See Notes) Being the most inexperienced of the group, it was briefly considered that Aisha's Zeo Powers would go to Billy Cranston, however he declined, because he felt he served his purpose, although he offered to indeed take the powers himself if Tanya didn't feel up to the task. However, Tanya did indeed become the new Zeo Ranger II Yellow.

Tanya began her tour of duty as one of the newest members of the Power Rangers team while having to cope with the Machine Empire invasion as well as having her world turned upside down by leaving her time period and entering the Angel Grove of the 1990s as an orphan. To help her cope with her temporal displacement, Katherine Hillard convinced her parents to let Tanya stay at their place.

Luckily, Tanya adapted quickly to her new lifestyle and began to learn martial arts from Tommy Oliver and Adam Park. She joined the Angel Grove High softball team as a pitcher. She briefly dated bad boy name Shawn, but broke up with him because of his bad attitude towards her. They eventually made up later and decide to remain friends. She was also an excellent singer, and her summer job as a DJ caught the interest of a recording company. Presumably, she accepted their recording contract upon retiring as a Power Ranger. Also, despite her lack of a formal education, she revealed herself as one of the wisest of the Power Rangers, easily solving mysteries that often left her friends baffled.

It was eventually revealed that her real parents had been explorers, who had left her in Africa while they went searching for the "Lost Tiki of Auric" on the fabled Mysterio Island. After receiving a letter from her old tribe and Aisha, she managed to find and rescue them. She learned that the "Lost Tiki" was in fact the form of the ancient hero, Auric the Conqueror, whose care she placed in the hands of Jason Lee Scott, who was serving as the Gold Ranger at the time.

Power Rangers Turbo

"Shift Into Turbo! Dune Star Turbo Power, Turbo up!"

Tanya as the Yellow Turbo Ranger

When the evil Space Pirate Divatox threatened to raise a powerful monster named Maligore to marry her, Tanya, along with the other Rangers, accepted new Turbo powers and she became the Yellow Turbo Ranger, and gains the Dune Star Turbozord. Tanya continued to fight against Divatox, but then she and the other Ranger veterans passed on their powers to worthy successors after graduating from high school. Tanya selected, as her replacement, the Angel Grove cheerleader, Ashley Hammond, to continue on as the Yellow Turbo Ranger while Tanya resumed her singing carrer.

Tanya 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. Legacy of Power

Behind the Scenes



  • According to a November 1995 promo sheet for Alien Rangers/Power Rangers Zeo, Tanya's original name was Kenya.
  • The show doesn’t explicitly reveal how the time reversal worked, especially in Tanya’s case. She could’ve grown to be a child in a teenager’s body, or if the rest of the world was also affected by the time reversal, then it would mean that Tanya had grown to be around the same age as the other Rangers as she really was their age to begin with.
  • Tanya is the first Yellow Ranger whose Sentai counterparts were likewise female, thus her uniforms had skirts like the Sentai counterpart.
  • Although kind of hard to tell due to the camera angles, in the 2-part series finale of Alien Rangers "Hogday Afternoon," the young Tanya goes around barefooted, but when she gets turned into a teenager, she has flip-flops. It is unknown how she obtained them.
  • Tanya is one of the two Zeo Rangers (along with Trey of Triforia) not to have been a Power Ranger in any previous season.
  • Tanya is the first person to first become a ranger in a season other than that in which they debuted in. The only other is Karone.
  • Technically, Tanya was also Billy Cranston's replacement, making her the first replacement ranger to be of different color and opposite gender of her predecessor.
  • Tanya is the only Ranger of the Zeo Rangers not to appear in an anniversary team up. Tommy appeared in "Forever Red", "Legendary Battle" and "Dimensions in Danger", Jason appeared in "Forever Red" and "Grid Connection", Adam appeared in "Once a Ranger", and Rocky and Kat appeared in "Dimensions in Danger".
  • Due to the timeline alterations caused by Aisha's decision to stay in Africa in "Hogday Afternoon," in lieu of Aisha becoming Trini's replacement Yellow Ranger, Tanya would have been Trini's sole replacement until Ashley Hammond replaced Tanya in Part 2 of the 2-part episode of "Passing The Torch."
  • Tanya retains the tough and tomboyish personality of her two Sentai counterparts, Juri Nijou and Natsumi Shinohara.
