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.

Retroactively, she is also referred to as Zeo Yellow Ranger or Yellow Zeo Ranger, though these are in reference to the show, as opposed to proper labels. She has also been labeled Turbo Yellow Ranger, a variation on her in-show label.

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!"
―roll call as Yellow Turbo Ranger[src]

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.

Split History

As Zeo Ranger II Yellow, Tanya followed her original timeline until the Shattered Grid event, which for her, occurred shortly after the events of Good as Gold.

"Shattered Grid"

Tanya was seen with the other Zeo Rangers, throwing a farewell party to their former Gold Ranger, Jason Lee Scott. Shortly after the party ended, unbeknownst to Tanya and the other Zeo Rangers, Lord Drakkon stole Adam’s Zeonizer and murdered a captive Tommy in his bedroom.

Receiving Zordon's call through the Morphin Grid, Tanya was among the Rangers who rallied to his pocket dimension for the last stand against Lord Drakkon. Comicicon.png COMIC STORY- Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (Boom! Studios) Issue 29

After having her Morpher reinforced by Doctor K, Tanya took part in a mission to Lord Drakkon's fortress to rescue captured Rangers, and was subsequently aboard the Promethea when it was trapped in an unknown dimension known as “The Void”.

"Beyond the Grid"

While dealing with hostile forces on the vessel, Kimberly saves Mike from attempting to send himself out of the airlock with them.
