Dr. Thomas "Tommy" Oliver (b. 1979) is the longest lasting Power Ranger of all time. He started out as a student at Angel Grove High School who was brainwashed by Rita Repulsa to become the Green Ranger and fought the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. After the Rangers freed him from Rita's spell, Zordon created the White Ranger powers as a replacement for the depletion of the Green Ranger's energy. Later when the team discovered the Zeo Crystal, Tommy was chosen to become Zeo Ranger V Red of the Zeo Rangers, and later the first Red Turbo Ranger of the Turbo Rangers. After he retired his powers to T.J. Johnson and graduated from college, he discovered the Dino Gems and became a teacher at Reefside High, becoming the Black Dino Ranger of the Dino Rangers.

Little is known about Tommy's early life other than the fact that he was adopted by the Oliver family at a young age with nothing being known about his original family. Previously, until the age of 7, Tommy Marshall and his friend Tyler lived on the streets, until he left the orphanage to be adopted by his mother.
Tommy is a new student to Angel Grove who was chosen by Rita Repulsa to become her own evil Green Ranger. He was eventually stopped by the Power Rangers who broke Rita's spell over him. When he came to, Tommy realized all the damage he had done and felt terrible, but Jason assured him it was only because of Rita's spell. Tommy decided to join the Power Rangers as their sixth ranger, much to the confusion of the citizens of Angel Grove. Despite their welcome, Tommy continues to feel like an outsider and has been haunted by Rita's presence.
His brother, David, was adopted by Sam Trueheart although the two would not meet until their teens. At some point in his life, Tommy took an interest in martial arts, mainly karate, he later became a master at it.
Mighty Morphin Era
While he was a freshman in high school, Tommy and his family moved to Angel Grove and he entered a martial arts tournament and fought Jason to a tie by 4-4 despite Jason being labeled "Angel Grove's finest [martial artist]" by the announcer but the fight had earned him Jason's respect. Tommy later scares Bulk and Skull away when they are harassing Kimberly, who has become enamoured by Tommy at first sight and invites him to hang out with her and her friends. Rita Repulsa noticed Tommy's fight with Jason and realizes that there is potential in the young man. Therefore, she kidnaps Tommy after testing him against the Putty Patrol, placing him under a spell that makes him her completely mindless slave. Using the secret sixth Power Coin - the Dragon Coin - she transformed him into the evil Green Ranger. Tommy then travelled to the Command Center and put Zordon out of commission and downloaded a virus into Alpha 5's programming. He then fights the Power Rangers and defeats them before withdrawing as Rita intended this as just a warning of things to come.
Being under Rita's influence, Tommy becomes very sullen and even rude to Kimberly when she questions where he was since his kidnapping made Tommy miss a night out at the mall with her. With the Rangers at their weakest, Rita decides that the time to attack is now. After Tommy defeats a squad of Putties without his powers, Rita gives him the Sword of Darkness which not only enhances his dark powers but also acts as a catalyst for keeping him under her evil spell. She then has Tommy transport Jason into the Dark Dimension where he faces down Goldar and nearly gets butchered multiple times. Tommy eventually takkes the honor from the Goldar and faces Jason himself but, once he is about to impale the Red Ranger, Jason manages to narrowly escape his grasp when the other Rangers teleport him out. For his failure, Rita traps Tommy in the Dark Dimension until further notice.
While the Rangers were defending Angel Grove from Goldar, Tommy entered the Command Center and attempted to sabotage it again. Alpha placed him in a stasis lock, but he was freed by Rita, who then made him grow. He then joined Goldar and Scorpina in fighting the Megazord, as Rita cast a spell to create an eclipse to remove the Megazord's power. The Megazord separated and the Dinozords fell under the earth. When the Rangers retreated into the Command Center, Alpha revealed that the stasis lock the Green Ranger was kept in allowed his true identity to be revealed — that of Tommy Oliver.
Realizing that Rita's spell was the reason for Tommy's strange behavior, Kimberly confronted him in the Youth Center, but he simply informed her that (along with knowing the other Rangers' identities) she and the other Power Rangers would soon be destroyed. Utilizing his Dragon Dagger that he received from Rita, the Green Ranger summoned his own Zord, the Dragonzord, to destroy Angel Grove. In the meantime, Alpha reestablished Zordon's link with the dimension and the Megazord was recovered. Jason and the others managed to take down the Dragonzord and, when facing the Green Ranger, Jason destroyed the Sword of Darkness and freed Tommy from Rita's spell. When he came to, Tommy realized all the damage he had done and felt terrible, but Jason assured him it was only because of Rita's spell. Tommy accepted the Rangers' offer to join them. With the Dragonzord on their side, the Rangers now had access to Dragonzord in Battle Mode, and eventually the powerful Ultrazord. At the Command Center, Tommy accepts Zordon's rules of being a Ranger, and even receives a Wrist Communicator from Billy. The team of five has turned into six, also making him the first ever Sixth Ranger.
Initially, Tommy stays a loner though he joins the other Rangers in some activities but often leaves to go to karate practice and other martial arts up to and including a karate commercial (though what it was advertising isn't explained). As the battles increased, Tommy became closer to the team and formed friendships with them. He admired Zack's sense of fun, Trini's dedication, and Billy's intelligence. He also had a crush on Kimberly and the two eventually started dating.
Tommy's friendship with Jason takes a little longer to develop. In the beginning, Tommy feels a sense of rivalry between him and Jason as both are equally skilled at martial arts. After joining the Ranger though, Tommy constantly tries to show up Jason in one manner or the other. Zordon is aware of the problem and sends the two on a mission to recover special blasters protected by the Zord called Titanus (who later becomes a powerhouse of the team) to defeat Rita's Super Putties. It is there that Tommy and Jason learn to work together. The two form a deep bond and begin teaching martial arts together as well as competing together. Tommy imbibes a lot of Jason's leadership skills which would help him in the long road ahead.
The Green Candle
, whilst out walking with Kimberly, Tommy is attacked and captured by Goldar and taken to Rita's Dark Dimension. Goldar reveals that the material that once encased Tommy and turned him evil was actually some magic wax which was linked to his Morphing powers. By turning the wax into a Green Candle, Rita is able to ensure that as the candle burned, his powers will slowly fade away, and when the candle burns out, Rita will reclaim his powers for good. As the candle burns faster if Tommy is in its vicinity, Rita has commanded Goldar to kidnap Tommy and take him to the Dimension where the candle is kept. The only way to get to and extinguish the Green Candle is to defeat Goldar without his Morpher. Rita then sends down the shapeshifting Cyclops monster to keep the other Power Rangers from interfering by having it pose as the Dragonzord and making the Rangers think that Tommy has gone evil. Tommy is able to grab Goldar's sword during their fight and send himself back to Earth where he aids the Rangers in battle against the Cyclops and forces it to retreat.
While the other Rangers go to retrieve the candle, the Cyclops returns and Tommy has to fight the monster alone. With Tommy using all his strength to fight the Cyclops monster, Jason and the Rangers have to return to help him but the Green Candle quickly burns out even with Cyclops slain. Before all is lost to Rita, Zordon tells Tommy to give his coin to another Ranger with a strong link to the Morphin Grid to prevent Rita from getting its powers. Tommy chooses to pass his Dragon Coin onto Jason which means that he Red Ranger can now draw upon the remnants of the Green Ranger powers to use the Dragon Shield in battle and the Dragon Dagger to summon the Dragonzord. Tommy says his goodbyes to the teammates but they assure Tommy that he'll always be a Power Ranger in spirit. Tommy assures Jason that it isn't his fault for not retrieving the Green Candle as he tries his best to. Even though Tommy is no longer the Green Ranger, he still manages to stay friends with the rest of the Rangers and maintain his relationship with Kimberly.
During Parent's Day at the Youth Center, Rita decides to trap all the Rangers' parents in her Dark Dimension and puts a spell on Billy using her Dramole monster to have him give her the Dragon Dagger. Rita and her minions tell the Rangers that they wull trade their parents for their Power Coins. Reluctantly, after the Megazord is decimated by the Dragonzord, the Rangers agree but Rita and Goldar double-crosses them and sends the Dragonzord on a violent rampage in the city. When it seems like there was no hope left, Jason reveals his own deception: though he gave up his Tyrannosaurus coin, he has secretly kept the Dragon Coin.
When Tommy comes to the Youth Center for Parent's Day and finds the place deserted, he is immediately teleported to the Command Center and is briefed about the situation. He agrees to help but, with his powers completely gone, Tommy has to accept an enormous power boost from Zordon and he becomes the Green Ranger once again. He is teleported to where Goldar is guarding the coins and proceedes to fight him and the Putties. The Dagger and Coins are protected by a strange energy but Tommy retrieves the Dagger to stop the rampaging Dragonzord and the Coins before he is teleported away though not before a fight with giant Goldar and Scorpina. Later, he saves the other Power Rangers from the Dramole's brainwashing and then uses the Dragonzord to slay the monster entirely. It turns out that (by reaching into the force field energy while wearing the Green Ranger powers), it gives Tommy a major energy boost though he learns that the powers are only temporary and that they will run out eventually, but Tommy still chooses to be an active Ranger.
Returning to the team, Tommy helps the Rangers in fighting various monsters. Though Zordon cautions him about his limited power supply, Tommy was always battle ready if called upon. He no longer keeps a low profile and became more dependent on the Rangers, helping to unify the team. Tommy also begins to do more activities with the Rangers such as martial arts teaching with Jason, basketball, and football.
However, all his happiness would change when Rita's master, Lord Zedd, emerges. Determined to succeed where Rita failed, Zedd swears that he will put an end to the Power Rangers once and for all. When the Dinozords appear to be no match for Zedd's power, Zordon changes them to become Thunderzords. With Tommy not having enough energy for his own Thunderzord, Zedd realizes the Green Ranger is the team's weakest link and soon begins to target him specifically.
The End of the Green Ranger
Tommy continued on as best he could, but he soon began to have bad dreams about losing his powers. Lord Zedd was behind the bad dreams. In one instance, he captured Tommy and placed him under an evil spell, and had him lure the Rangers into calling on the Sword of Power for Zedd's monster, Robogoat. Tommy, with the other Rangers, called upon the sword and then snatched it from them. Taunting the other Rangers, he left and gave the sword to Goldar. Once he gave up the sword, the spell was broken. Tommy could not believe what he had done. He tried to retrieve the sword himself, but Robogoat weakened his powers by a lot. The Rangers managed to defeat Goldar and Robogoat and regain control of the sword.
In his heart, Tommy knew that each day could be his last day as a Ranger. Despite the continuous draining of his powers, Tommy always chose to fight alongside the other Rangers. He would rather help his friends and lose his powers than keep them and do nothing.
Although Tommy shows tremendous courage, he always felt that the end of the Green Ranger was near. Unfortunately, he was right. After seven or so schemes of just draining Tommy's powers, Lord Zedd decides to finally start his endgame and steal Tommy's powers once and for all. After kidnapping five punk teens (Justin, Zane, Bobby, Tina and Kristen]) to make his Dark Rangers and creates the TurbanShell monster. After coming to life, TurbanShell enlarges himself without any apparent help from Zedd and attacks Angel Grove. As he rampages, he encounters the Power Rangers and shows off how much he wants to destroy them by smashing a whole right through an office block. TurbanShell decides to obliterate them and unleashed massive energy blasts on the city but the Rangers are unfazed and summon both the Thunder Megazord and Dragonzord into battle only to have them defeated though his lack of power forces the monster to retreat.
Shortly thereafter, Zedd kidnaps Tommy and teleports him into a wheat field that is also in the Otherworld. Turbanshell confronts him there and quickly does battle after welcoming him to his nightmare. With Tommy's weakening powers, he is easily able to absorb his remaining powers into his shell which forces Tommy to scramble away behind a rock. Zedd holds up a special power draining Green Crystal which absorbs his remaining powers and begins his next steps. With the Green Crystal fully charged, Zedd uses it to surround the Command Center in a crushing forcefield and capture the remaining Power Rangers.
After searching for Tommy for some time, and failing to find him, Tommy ambushes him when he jumps out from behind that rock. He vault kicks TurbanShell down only to be jabbed in the stomach and thrown down. Meanwhile, TurbanShell is about to finish Tommy off entirely but Goldar makes an appearance, having apparently convinced Zedd to at least let him torture his archenemy and tells the monster that he will continue torturing Tommy while TurbanShell resumes his destruction of Angel Grove. Once the monster flees, Goldar "welcomes" Tommy as just his civilian identity because he is no longer the Green Ranger and summons Z-Putties to restrain him whilst he uses some form of dimensional remote to project a holographic screen in the sky and torture him with images and reminders of what he once was. This includes deleted footage of him and Trini fighting the Invenusable Flytrap, deleted footage of him posing from "The Green Candle-part II", and the Dragonzord emerging from Angel Grove Quay from "Breaking The Spell." This seems to break Tommy to the point of groveling which delights Goldar so he tries to make Tommy admit that Goldylocks is superior before he is slain. However, Tommy has been playing along the whole time and goes on the attack with his opening attack being a powerful jump punch to the chest and then disarms the stunned Goldar. Although Tommy fights hard, he is overwhelmed by the villain's strength and ends up being slapped down and then thrown through the air. Goldar prepares to finish him off but the time device is kicked out of his hands and caught by Tommy much to Goldar's shock before being chest kicked down. Tommy then reveals that he has remained sane because the clips reminded him of that he was such a good person, Ranger or not. Goldar recovers but five kicks knocked him back and a sixth makes him face-plant. When he got back up, Tommy backs off but immediately teleports Goldar back to Lord Zedd which allows him to eventually teleport back to Angel Grove by using the time device to get his communicator from his past self.
In spite of the getaway, Zedd has (apparently) gained control of the Thunderzords and plans to have the Dark Rangers pilot them and destroy Angel Grove. However, Tommy teleports to the Otherworld and grabs the Green Crystal, smashing it over a rock and freeing the Dark Rangers to Zedd's horror and making his swift getaway. With their powers apparently restored, the other Rangers morph and attempt to fight TurbanShell in the Thunder Megazord again but are all soon defeated.
Thinking himself victorious, TurbanShell decides to have a snack before destroying the city so eats a bin full of watermelons. However, Tommy is hiding inside the bin and is eaten as well before pulling out a Mega Heater and blasting his insides. He has received word from Zordon that the only way to defeat TurbanShell is to heat him up from the inside and then cool down his outside. With TurbanShell experiencing extreme discomfort from the "indigestion", Zack takes the initiative and grabbing a nearby water hose to spray the monster down with it. This rapidly cools down TurbanShell's exterior and causing him to freeze solid which renders his abilities useless. With the monster severely weakened, Tommy is thrown clear although he is extremely weak but his efforts allow the Thunder Saber to slay TurbanShell. Unfortunately, the defeat of TurbanShell proves to be a Pyrrhic victory for the Power Rangers since the Green Crystal was successful in draining Tommy's powers and he loses them once and for all. However, Tommy proves optmistic in his future and regards his time as a very positive experience in his life.
Despite his positive attitude however, Tommy decides to go to his uncle's cabin outside of Angel Grove to get his bearings even as Jason has to save his friends from Pipebrain and Ranger specific Green Candle equivalents.
After a week at his uncle's cabin, and shortly after the death of the Mirror Maniac, Tommy sent a letter to the rest of the Rangers to announce that he was coming home.
While swimming at the lake one afternoon before announcing his return, a beam of light surrounds Tommy and he is teleported to the Command Center. Zordon and Alpha reveal their plans to him of creating a new Ranger off-screen and, because this Ranger is going to be created from the White Light of Good, it will be impossible for the darkness to control him or steal his powers. Tommy is the perfect candidate to take on the powers for his bravery and determination from his old Ranger days. When the other Rangers are teleported to the Command Center, Tommy reveals himself to be the new White Mighty Morphin Power Ranger with a sentient sword named Saba. Upon his introduction to the rest of the team, Zordon announces that Tommy has now become the new leader of the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers. However, Nimrod the Scarlet Sentinel (a monster who leads the Scarlet Sentinels who are three monsters easily able to defeat the Thunder Megazord with one attack) returns and both the damage to the Thunderzords and the potentioal return of Rita Repulsa from her imprisonment forces Tommy to fight the Scarlet Sentinels alone). He would control the White Tigerzord with the help of his enchanted talking sabre Saba. Immediately after arriving on scene, Tommy immediately summons the new White Tigerzord Saba although it initially lacks proper control due to Saba’s inexperience. They quickly get their acts together and mount the Zord before Tommy enters the cockpit and changes it into Warrior Mode. Though they manage to thrash Nimrod, the Sentienls are just too strong and they force the Tigerzord back into Tiger Mode and eject Tommy. As the Scarlet Sentinels advance on his Zord to destroy it, Tommy calls for help from Jason and manages to get the White Tigerzord back on its feet just as the Red Dragon Thunderzord arrives and it rides the Tigerzord into battle, turning the tide by jabbing AC and DC aside with its staff and slashing Nimrod across her waist. AC and DC charged and Nimrod barraged the two with her energy balls but they were unfazed and Tommy has the Red Dragon Thunderzord eject from the White Tigerzord. Tommy then re-enters his Zord and turns it back into Warrior Mode immediately before the Unicorn, Griffin, Lion and Firebird Thunderzords arrive with Zordon having apparently sent them through remote control. Tommy has the Zords combine which forms the new Mega Tigerzord which slays the Scarlet Sentinels at last.
During a day of roller blading in the park, Tommy, Kim, and Billy meet and assist three teens from Stone Canyon High - Rocky DeSantos, Adam Park, and Aisha Campbell - in helping save their teacher's infant son as he and his stroller almost went down a hill. They quickly make friends with the new teens and are later surprised when they win a ninja tournament.
When the Teen World Summit come to Angel Grove, Jason, Zack, and Trini are chosen as representatives for the peace conferences in Switzerland. Their replacements turned out to be none other than the Rangers' three new friends. For the power transfer, Tommy led the Rangers to a distant planet to retrieve the Sword of Light before Zedd tried to destroy the planet with Serpentera. They succeeded in time; Tommy used the sword while Jason, Zack, and Trini transferred their powers to Rocky, Adam, and Aisha. Tommy was sad to see his old friends go but glad that the new Rangers were here to help him.
|"Hello, Tommy. Allow me to introduce myself.|
What's going on?! Who are you?
I'm the Green Ranger."
|―Tom Oliver and Tommy meet.[src]|
New trouble came when Rita returned and got married to Zedd. Even so, Tommy and the Rangers prevailed over their combined traps and monsters. Rita then called upon the Wizard of Deception when she wanted him to create another Tommy, one who would return to her side as the evil Green Ranger. The Wizard of Deception had putties attack Tommy. When they knocked him out, he cut off a lock of his hair and used it to create the evil Green Ranger. This evil Tommy worked with the Wizard of Deception to send the other Rangers back to colonial times.
Tommy woke up and, with his head pounding, he went looking for his friends. Learning that they had been sent back in time, Tommy confronted the evil Ranger. It was a fierce battle, but Tommy outwitted the Green Ranger and found out where the others had been sent. Quickly he went back to retrieve them and destroyed the Wizard. As with the original Tommy, once the Green Ranger's spell was broken, the other Tommy began to feel bad for what he had done. The one thing that Rita had forgotten was at the very core of Tommy is goodness. Tommy assures his double that he was under a spell and that he could not control his actions. The two Tommys returned to the colonial era to save the people there from giant rats. The double Tommy made the decision to stay where he was, realizing that two of Tommy in one time frame wouldn't work. He was then christened "Tom". Tom presumably returned the Green Ranger powers to Tommy, commenting, "I won't be needing this anymore." (although not stated, Tommy may have created his own family line with Tom, which would make Tom his ancestor when he chose to stay in colonial times).
When Kimberly was sent back to Western times, she would assist the Rangers' ancestors by creating them into a team of Wild West Power Rangers. Tommy would see his own ancestor who, while not a Ranger, was called the "White Stranger" and assisted Kim with cowboy-like martial arts. Though the Stranger was sad to see Kim off, he glanced a look at an arriving carriage carrying Kim's ancestor.
Once again, new threats arose for Tommy. Rita's brother, Rito Revolto destroyed the Thunderzords and the Ranger powers. Therefore, the Rangers searched the Desert of Despair for Ninjor, the maker of the original Power Coins. With Ninjor's help, Tommy and the others gained Ninja Ranger powers, which drew on the life force of its ranger, rather than an external source, and would help them in many battles to come. Tommy began his quest as the White Ninja Ranger, controlling the White Ninja Falconzord and eventually the White Shogunzord.
Having new Ninja powers wasn't going to let Rita, Zedd, and Rito stop from planning to destroy the Rangers. Rita placed a spell over Katherine Hillard, a new student from Australia. They told her to become friends with the Rangers and help Rita in her evil schemes.
One day at the beach, Tommy caught Kimberly as she began to feel weak. Quickly he got her to the Command Center where it was discovered that Kimberly lost her Ninja Coin and was being drained of her energy. Having once been in a similar position, Tommy found himself worrying about Kimberly's well-being and safety. Then Lord Zedd placed a trap for Kimberly and took her to his Dark Dimension. Tommy used Billy's teleporting machine to help get Kimberly out of there.
Tommy's worries over Kimberly were not over yet. When Kimberly had been hurt during gymnastics practice, Tommy was immediately at the hospital. Luckily, Kat broke through Rita's evil spell and confessed to Kimberly what had happened. Tommy and the others heard her. Knowing what it was like being under one of Rita's evil spells having been the Green Ranger, Tommy held no grudges against Kat and the damage she had inflicted.
His hardest day was yet to come. The coach who had been training Kimberly wanted her to come to Florida with him. Although Tommy did not want her to go, he also did not want to stand in the way of her dreams. He knew how hard she had worked for this, and he was afraid if he asked her to stay, she would eventually come to resent him for holding her back. They vowed to stay in contact with each other. Because of Katherine's dedication and courage, Kimberly chose to pass the Pink Ninja Coin onto her.
When Rito and Rita's father, Master Vile, showed up, he turned all the Rangers into little kids. In order to return to the correct time, Tommy was sent on a quest to retrieve part of the fractured Zeo crystal. Tommy's adventure took him to a Native American village, where he was assisted by a wise sage named "True of Heart". With a bird as his guide, Tommy made his way up to the mountain where the crystal was. With three wrapped crystals in front him, the false ones which would guarantee Tommy being stuck, True of Heart helped Tommy look into his heart and find the correct crystal. He also gave Tommy half of an arrowhead, saying it would play an important role in his life.
All the Rangers had gained their crystal with the exception of Aisha, who chose to stay in Africa and instead send a young girl by the name of Tanya with her crystal. The Rangers returned to their normal ages, but Rito and Goldar planted a bomb underneath the Command Center.
A Zeo Beginning
Tommy and the others escaped before it blew, and Tommy found the repaired Zeo Crystal under the wreckage. They also stumbled upon the Power Chamber, built in the case of the Center's destruction, with Zordon and Alpha alive.
However, trouble brewed yet again when King Mondo and his Machine Empire sent Rita and Zedd away and started his own plans for taking over Earth. Harnessing the power from the Zeo Crystal, Tommy and the others would take the next step in protecting Earth by becoming the Zeo Rangers. Tommy once again assumed command of the team; with the power of the Star Zeo Crystal, he became the Red Zeo Ranger (Zeo Ranger V Red), controlling Zeozord 5 and his own special zord, the Red Battlezord.
During his time as a Zeo Ranger, Tommy endured many tough hardships. One of his biggest was when Kimberly sent him a "Dear John" letter saying she had found love during her training and decided to break off her relationship with Tommy. Katherine tried to help Tommy through his heartbreak by trying to hook him up with a friend of hers; while the relationship seemed promising, Tommy's duty as the leader of the Zeo Ranger kept him from the various dates. Eventually, Tommy ended up going out on a date with Katherine, though it is unknown if they continued any form of a relationship.
Tommy also had a recurring dream about True of Heart. One day he bumped into a man named Sam who looked exactly like him. Tommy offered to drop Sam home, where he found someone who looked remarkably similar to him. When Tommy went after him, the man seemed to vanish. Sam, revealing his name to be Sam Trueheart, told Tommy that once he completed his quest, the identity of the young man would be revealed.
Once Tommy completed the quest, he was surprised to find out that the young man, David Trueheart, was his brother. David revealed to have the other half of the arrowhead; when put together, the bearer would have control of the power of spirits trapped within a hidden stone. Tommy was thrilled to have a brother and quickly took him to meet his friends. Originally everything was fine, but after Tommy defeated David in a karate match, David felt embarrassed and ran off. Feeling bad, Tommy went after him only to find that he had been captured by King Mondo for the arrowhead. Tommy gave it to him, but Mondo double-crossed him. Transforming into the Red Ranger, Tommy located his brother and led him to safety. David insisted on going back to find Tommy, as Mondo had threatened to hurt him. Although Tommy tried to convince David that he's okay, David would not give up. Reluctantly Tommy took off his helmet and revealed his identity to a flabbergasted David. Tommy succeeded in getting the arrowhead back, and both brothers decided to keep their respective halves.
When the Rangers were fighting Wolfbane, a monster sent by King Mondo, a Gold Zeo Ranger appeared to help them out. The identity of the Gold Ranger remained a mystery for some time; Tommy thought it was Billy, who had stepped down as a Ranger and was their technical adviser. The new Ranger was then forced to reveal himself as Trey, an alien of the planet Triforia. Unfortunately, due to his molecular makeup, he was split into three with no way of being joined together until he went back to his home planet to heal. Trey needed a successor to carry on the powers and, with Billy not being able to handle the energy (due to unintentionally absorbing negative proton energy from the Command Center's destruction), Tommy needed to find someone else.
Luckily, Jason had returned from the peace conferences recently, so Tommy asked him if he would step in as the Gold Ranger. Knowing that King Mondo was also interested in the Gold Power, Jason agreed, and hurried back to the Command Center where the three Treys gave Jason the Golden Staff and the Gold Ranger powers. Before leaving, the Treys gave the Rangers the Super Zeozords, and Tommy would control Super Zeozord 5
Always being the target for the forces of evil, Tommy was abducted by the Machine Empire and brainwashed into working for them. Prince Gasket introduced himself and told Tommy that he was the King of the Machine Empire and that the Power Rangers were evil and needed to be destroyed. Tommy was reluctant to believe him, but after viewing images of the Rangers' destruction, Tommy knew that the Rangers had to be destroyed.
Jason and Kat found out that Tommy was being brainwashed and transported themselves to the arena where Tommy was. The Zeo Rangers fought Tommy, but realized that the only way to remove him from Prince Gasket's grasp was to show him who his friends were. They all De-Morphed in front of him. Seeing the familiar faces, Tommy began having old memories and knew that the Rangers were good.
After Billy left to live on Aquitar, and Jason returned the Gold Ranger powers to Trey, the Rangers defeated King Mondo while unbeknownst to the Rangers, Rita & Zedd finished off the remaining House of Gadgetry. But trouble found the Rangers again when Divatox, a ruthless space pirate had decided to become a threat. Thus, a new source of power had to be found to stop her and the Turbo Rangers were born.
Tommy stepped up and took his new position as the Red Turbo Power Ranger. With new villains came new allies. After Rocky chose to leave because of a karate accident, young Justin Stewart joined everyone as the Blue Turbo Ranger. The Rangers quickly went into action and approached the cave where Divatox was holding Kimberly and Jason. They found out that they were being sacrificed so that Divatox could marry Maligore, a hideous lava monster. Tommy was able to save his friends, and with the new Turbo Megazord, defeated the evil Maligore.
Because of the new Turbo powers, Tommy gained an interest in cars and began to spend a lot of time at the race track. As a result, he didn't attend his graduation ceremony, preferring to pick up his diploma earlier. This caused him to spend less time with the other Turbo Rangers, even though he was present whenever they needed him, similar to his days as the Green Ranger.
When Zordon and Alpha 5 chose to leave, Dimitria and Alpha 6 were assigned to watch over the Rangers. The new mentors didn't stop Divatox, who was determined to destroy the Rangers. Divatox had tried everything but nothing was met with success. On one occasion Divatox's mother told her that the best way to destroy the Rangers was to destroy their leader, Tommy, but of course he came out of the situation unscathed.
Near the end of Tommy's tenure as a ranger, Divatox sent Piranhatrons to attack Tommy and Kat, who were riding out to meet Tanya, Adam and Justin for a camping trip. The Piranhatrons abducted Tommy and brought him to a cave where Divatox was prepared to drop him into the Vortex of Eternal Doom and Sorrow.
Tommy was saved by Theodore Jay "T.J." Jarvis Johnson, a teenage boy who was passing through Angel Grove. Tommy was impressed by T.J.'s dedication and bravery, and owed his life to him. When Tommy and the other Rangers had to leave for college, Tommy chose T.J. as his successor.
After his tenure as a Ranger was over, Tommy went to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), where he decided to take a Doctorate in Palaeontology, a fascination brought on by his days with the dinosaur inspired Mighty Morphin' team of his youth. While researching fossils, Tommy found the Red, Blue, and Yellow Dino Gems, remnants of the asteroid which killed the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. After learning of the power the gems contained, Tommy knew that they would be misused if in the wrong hands, so he hid them.
While he was in college, Tommy met Hayley Ziktor, who helped him create the Dino Morphers, which could harness the gems' power to create the Dino Thunder Power Rangers. He was also partners with Terrence "Smitty" Smith and Dr. Anton Mercer on a dinosaur-related project that would lead to the creation of the Tyrannodrones, Raptor Riders and the Biozords.
A horrible lab accident turned Mercer into Mesogog, who seized the project's creations, including the Tyrannodrones, attempted to capture and/or kill Tommy and destroyed the island they'd been working on. Tommy, who was unaware that Mesosog was Mercer, started to work on the Dino Thunder powers with Hayley, in case Mesogog resurfaced with new help. Tommy also lost contact with Smitty after he was picked over him when Anton chose Tommy, but was unaware that he, too, had had a lab accident, becoming Zeltrax.
Wild Force Era
Tommy was in contact with Andros the Red Space Ranger and, aware of his mission trailing General Venjix and the remaining survivors of the Machine Empire. Andros contacted him when he was staying at Bulkmeier's, a club owned by Bulk - who was intimidated by Tommy, nervously calling him "sir".
After learning that the Machine Empire was reviving Lord Zedd's deadly Zord Serpentera, Tommy contacted the Veteran Red Rangers of Earth for a preemptive strike on Venjix. He apparently hadn't seen Jason in a while, as the two acted like it had been a while and Tommy was initially unclear if he was going to turn up. With ten Red Rangers and the help of Cole's Wild Force Rider, Serpentera and the rest of the Machine Empire was destroyed - Tommy personally destroying General Gerrok. Cole remarked that Tommy was the "greatest Ranger ever," which got mocked by the other Red Rangers.
Deleted scenes for the episode show that Tommy owned Bulkmeier's and that Bulk & Skull were nervous because he was their boss; he was also unaware, until Andros called, of Venjix, and casually said he was "retired". Dino Thunder would show Tommy as he was in the aired episode: someone who is clearly active and planning things. There were rumors that Rocky DeSantos was going to have a cameo as Tommy's butler and that Kat was going to cameo as well as Tommy's wife though neither of these appear in the "Forever Red" draft outlines.
Dino Thunder Era
Tommy resurfaced as a science teacher at a school in the fictional city of Reefside, California. A trio of detention students — Conner McKnight, Ethan James, and Kira Ford — unravelled Tommy's past as a Power Ranger after uncovering three artifacts from his lab that turned them into Power Rangers. Tommy recruited these students to become the Dino Rangers, doing so while seeming mysterious and somewhat obnoxious, as noted by Conner. When he discovered that Mesogog was still active, he stole another Dino Gem from Mesogog and joined the other Rangers as the Black Dino Thunder Ranger, aided by the power of invisibility from the Black Dino Gem. His Dinozord was the Brachiozord carrier, he wielded the Brachio Staff, and he drove the Black Thunder ATV.
When the White Dino Ranger appeared, Tommy's dedication to saving the lives of innocents seemed to give Tommy cause to show no mercy to him, even after he found out his identity was Trent Mercer. For a while, he was encased in amber by the White Dino Ranger, and once freed, was unable to De-Morph, due to his Dino Gem and his Morpher re-molecularizing. He remained in his Morphed form for a while. Despite this resolve, he could not help but feel sympathy for Trent when his students wouldn't, reminding them that he was infamously in the same predicament years ago as the evil Green Ranger, his very first stint as a Power Ranger, and that out of all the Evil Rangers that had existed, he was the one that had come closest to ending them once and for all.
After seeing the power of the White Ranger Clone and the Terrorsaurus, Tommy decided that the Rangers needed an upgrade. He took Trent to the location of the Shield of Triumph, as the shield could only be freed from its resting place by the power of Trent's Dino Gem. He also had a hunch that Conner was the one destined to control the shield. He was right, as Conner showed up just in time to save the shield from being lost forever. Tommy informed the other Rangers they had to contribute their energies to the shield, and Conner became the Triassic Ranger. He was later De-Morphed by a special substance, but was rendered invisible as a result.
An experiment sees the return of Tommy to his natural state, but the process shatters his Dino Gem and renders Tommy in a coma. During this time, Tommy would endure three internal battles, facing off against three of his past Ranger egos: the Green and White Power Rangers and the Red Zeo Ranger (during each of his fights with those Rangers, the screen was tinted the color that matched the Ranger). After proving that he would not give up the fight for his life, his opponents each offered him a shattered piece of his Dino Gem. Tommy would awake holding the newly repaired Dino Gem in his hand. As a result, he also gained Super Dino Mode.
When he learned that Trent was hiding his father's secret identity, Tommy considered asking Trent to surrender his Morpher. Though Tommy came to understand Trent's loyalty, he left the decision of letting Trent stay with the team to the other Rangers. They decided to let Trent stay after he saved Conner's life. In the final battle against Zeltrax, Tommy advised the Rangers that the only means to succeed would be to sacrifice their Zords (this may have been a reference to his own Zord sacrifice in Season 3's Ninja Quest, Part 1). At the end of the series, Tommy destroyed Zeltrax, alongside Kira. The Dino Rangers sacrificed their Dino Gems in order to destroy Mesogog's ultimate form(s). By that point, Mesogog had already managed to separate himself from Dr. Anton Mercer. In the end, Tommy would answer Anton's question of what he would do now by insisting he would pursue the simple life of a high school science teacher finally retiring his life as a Power Ranger for good, however, no Power Ranger, even Tommy, can escape the power forever.
Dr. Tommy Oliver Returns!
One Year after the events of Dino Thunder Tommy is contacted by Jack the Yellow Hyperforce Ranger to help him find the rest of his team. Dr. Oliver who in turn agreed to help find the Rangers, eventually bringing the time ship to the North Pole in 1985. As the rest of the Hyperforce Rangers are confused by Dr. Oliver's presence, the Rangers fill Jack in with their recent adventure with Santa and Jack in turn explains to the other Rangers that from his perspective the Rangers had been missing for several weeks and not just hours. In those weeks that the Rangers were missing Jack explains that he and Alpha 55 did an extensive search for them and were able to reprogram the time ship to detect time anomalies in the process. As a result, they were able to detect "The Leader" in Reefside in the year 2005 attempting to find Dr. Anton Mercer and revive his alter ego Mesogog.
The HyperForce Rangers and Dr. Oliver return to Reefside in the year 2005 to discover that Dr. Mercer is missing and Dr. Oliver's friend Hayley is in the process of destroying his newly rebuilt underground headquarters, having prior been destroyed by Zeltrax. Eddie uses his focus ability to neutralize Hayley and they see a news broadcast where "The Leader" is demanding for Dr. Mercer and his alter ego Mesogog for his plans. The Rangers learn that Hayley's actions were the result of being exposed to a strange gas being emitted from Hayley's Cyber Cafe. The Rangers use their power to temporarily charge the Black Dino Gem so that Dr. Oliver can become the Black Dino Ranger once more and then they head to the Cyber Cafe.
At the Cyber Cafe the Rangers discover the Putties and a horse plant hybrid Perfume Pony monster. The Rangers manage to drive off the people infected by the gas and discover that the Perfume Pony is the source of the gas. Eddie and Vesper are infected by the gas, but are brought back to their senses after taking blows to their heads.
As the Putties are defeated by Dr. Oliver and the other Rangers, Jack uses one of Dr. Oliver's borrowed gas masks to smother the Perfume Pony in its own gas causing the monster to grow. Alpha 55 works on an antidote to the gas and part of the HyperForce team begins to cryogenically freeze the infected civilians attacking them. Dr. Oliver summons the Mezodon Megazord and the other Rangers follow him to suppress the Perfume Pony. Calling upon the HyperForce Zords, the Perfume Pony is badly damaged. Dr. Oliver finishes the monster off with his Brachio Staff, sealing the monster underground. Using their combined powers the antidote is then dispersed around Reefside saving the civilians.
Dr. Oliver receives a phone call from Dr. Mercer, who is at Mercer Industries. They head to Mercer Industries and discover a badly injured Mercer surrounded by Putties. The Putties are driven off and Mercer is healed by Dr. Oliver using the HyperForce Rangers' healing charge technology. Mercer begins changing into Mesogog, brought back to life due to residual Dino DNA still in Mercer's system. The Rangers learn from Mercer and the partially revived Mesogog that they refused to help "The Leader" in his plan of conquest, a plan that is revealed to be somehow tied to Zordon. Alpha 55 detects a disturbance on the other side of Reefside and the Rangers attempt to use the gas antidote to help Mercer rid himself of Mesogog, but with little success. Dr. Oliver decides to stay behind to help Mercer in preventing Mesogog from fully reviving as the Rangers say their goodbyes and head off to check out the disturbance.
|"Black Ranger, I've read all about you!"|
In 20 years, S.P.D. cadets will have to read all about Tommy and his Ranger service at the Academy.
|"I still can't believe Tommy's a doctor."|
While Prince Vekar invaded the Earth, Tommy had begun uniting the Power Rangers that preceded the Mega Rangers. In between the event, some of them came in contact with the Mega Rangers.
When Emperor Mavro invades Earth, Tommy had finished uniting all the Power Rangers preceding the Mega Rangers and led them to fight Mavro and his allies. A kid was stuck in a car that was about to fall. Tommy uses Saba to rescue the kid, acknowledging the child's bravery. Emperor Mavro was defeated. But the remaining thousands of XBorgs still stand. Tommy gathered all the existing Power Rangers and met up with the Mega Rangers.
How Tommy regained his original Green Ranger powers is never explained here although he likely attained the Master Morpher shown in Super Ninja Steel sometime before the start of the Legend War.
Hyperforce- Stage 4: The Armada
During the events of the Legendary Battle, The Hyperforce Rangers return (after helping Orion) to help out in the Legendary War. Eddie begs Alpha 55 to let them join in despite the chance of altering the future and Alpha 55 agrees that the legendary Rangers could use the help. During the battle the Hyperforce Rangers come to the aid of many of the legendary Rangers unnoticed, though Marv gets Tommy's attention when Marv has an epic fail and runs off to hide. Knowing that the Hyperforce Rangers shouldn't be there, Tommy tries to get the Hyperforce Rangers to leave before they alter the timeline too severely.
In Dimensions in Danger, Tommy returns to his home in Reefside, where he calls out to his son J.J. about forgetting his bike on the front porch. Just as he was ready to take his son to school, however, Lord Draven shows up and kidnaps him. It turns out to be a plot by the villain to capture Power Rangers from various dimensions in order to create a robot army that he could use to conquer all the dimensions. Tommy manages to free himself and saves Wes, Gemma, Koda, and the Ninja Steel Rangers from a force of Basherbots using Dino Thunder Black. The group of Rangers split up and storm Draven's fortress, managing to free the other captured rangers. Tommy enters into a battle with an evil robot clone of himself where he proceeds to use the Master Morpher to utilize the powers of Dino Thunder Black (extended cut), Zeo Ranger V Red, White Ranger, and Green Ranger to destroy the clone. Once reuniting with the other Rangers, they morph and work together to destroy the Ranger Clones. Draven manages to fire off the last Mega Arrow to destroy the dimensional barriers when Tommy summons the Falconzord to fly up and catch the arrow, sending it straight back at Draven while the other Rangers fire at him with their weapons. This finally destroys Lord Draven. Tommy and the other veteran Rangers are seen passing the torch to the Ninja Steel Rangers, then returning both Koda and Gemma to their respective dimensions first before returning to the main dimension. While they were returning home, Tommy and Kat were holding hands, hinting that they are still a couple and JJ´s parents.
Post Dimensions in Danger
Some time between "Dimensions in Danger" and SPD, Tommy ends up confronting a giant monster resembling a leech. He fights it as Mighty Morphin Green but it ends up hitting him in the back with so much force that it causes gigantic, permanent nerve damage to his spine. Though he destroys it as Mighty Morphin White, the back damage forces him to get a permanent cybernetic back-brace under the pretense of a serious car crash.
Years later (sometime after 2025) Tommy is laid off from his job (now working at Bridgetown Township's High School) when the entire science department is scrapped from lack of funds. In the intervening time since "Dimensions in Danger," JJ has become an adult and an S.P.D. cadet. Around this time, Tommy (being in his late thirties/early forties) begins experiencing growing older goes missing as well as problems related to his previous back injury. Tommy goes in search of him, his Master Morpher finally giving out in the process. Tommy's son J.J. turns out to have been undercover for S.P.D. and has been investigating a mysterious witch, which turns out to be Scorpina, who was working for Lokar. Together, Tommy and J.J. defeat the villains. J.J. inherits the Dragon Shield, which he adds to his arsenal as the new S.P.D. Green Ranger.
In a possible future, an elderly Tommy narrates a holiday event taking place during his Zeo years to his young grandson. He is married to Katherine, and the couple have another grandson, who is implied to be a Power Ranger as well. However, this is probably non canon as the Command Center/Power Chamber had been destroyed in the finale of Power Rangers Turbo and the original communicator had never been used ever since Power Rangers Turbo
Murdered by Drakkon
When Lord Drakkon escaped Promethea custody, Tommy and Jason both encountered Grace Sterling over the revelation that she had held Lord Drakkon without them knowing about it. As the other Rangers try to prepare for anything Drakkon might do, he and Kimberly have a heart to heart talk over recent events and agree to a date. However, the date ends on a bad note when Kimberly rebuffs Tommy's attempt at a good night kiss. As Kimberly realizes that she really did want the kiss and tries to go back for it, Tommy is kicking himself over such an action. As he is, he is ambushed by a repowered Drakkon, running him through the back with Saba and absorbing his power to supercharge the Green Chaos Crystal. Kimberly arrives, followed by a time-traveling Jen Scotts, only to be helpless as Drakkon escapes and Tommy dies in Kimberly's arms.
Despite the Rangers' attempts to revive Tommy, Zordon is forced to admit defeat and recognize that Tommy is lost to them. The Rangers are forced to return Tommy to the alleyway where he was struck down and let the world know he was gone. His time as a Power Ranger was left unknown and the Dragon Coin was passed down to Jason. Even more, when Jen revives from her brief coma, she sadly tells the team that there's no way to travel back in time to save Tommy due to the damage done by Lord Drakkon.
Saved by the Ranger Slayer
Drakkon sent Ranger Slayer to eliminate the Mighty Morphin in their timeline, but mistakenly sent her to the past-present where Tommy is yet to be a Ranger. In his first appearance, the past-present Tommy is seen training in the gym, but is under attack by Ranger Slayer.
The past-present Tommy thought she tried to kill him however, Ranger Slayer, who is now freed from Drakkon’s control by her past-present uses her opportunity to change his original future-present-self’s fate, giving him a second chance to live, by implanting the improved green crystal implanted in her arrows with a single shot without killing him, giving him a vision to prevent his fated death like his future-present-self had, eventually trapping his soul within the time and space instead of dying.
When Drakkon finally obtain the final third evolution and stole the Heart of the Master from the Emissaries Three, then destroyed all realities and rewrote them into one where Drakkon became a Superman-like figure, Tommy (as a specter) began to haunt Drakkon, taunting him and telling him that he knows this world is wrong and that he's a pathetic man for creating it. This allows his grip on the world to weaken enough for Tommy to resurrect himself and rescue the Emissaries before rescuing his teammates, including Jen and Lauren, with a fragment implanted by Kimberly from Drakkon’s former world. As Tommy gathers the team along with Jen and Lauren, they are soon found by Drakkon, leading to a titanic struggle that ends with Tommy grabbing the Heart of the Master.
The two are pulled inside the Heart, the two battle briefly before Tommy defeats him, telling him that the reason he lost was because he couldn't stomach the idea that, in an entire multiverse of Tommys, he was the only one who was evil. With Drakkon pulled away from the Heart, his world began to fall apart. Tommy offered him a chance to save him, but Drakkon refused, staying with his broken world as it collapsed around him, ending his threat once and for all. With that Tommy returns the heart back to the Emissaries and all realities are restored, he and Kimberly share their last kiss before the restoration is complete, meaning it may erase almost all memories relating to the Shattered Grid events.
As Zeo Ranger V - Red, Tommy Oliver followed his original timeline until it was split by the Shattered Grid event. He was kidnapped by Lord Drakkon and impersonated just as the Rangers were seeing Jason off, after his tenure as the Gold Ranger. Tommy was in captivity while Drakkon stole away one of the Zeonizers from the Power Chamber. It is later revealed he also took Tommy's Zeonizer (or at least its Crystal). Drakkon murders Tommy upon his return, but Tommy is restored to life once the Grid is restored.
As the Black Dino Ranger, Tommy Oliver most likely followed his original timeline until it was split by the Shattering of Drakkon. While is not explicitly said, the Brachio Morpher of an older version of Tommy is seen among the many Morphers that Drakkon acquired during his quest for power, so it can be assumed that this version of Tommy also lost his powers as later is revealed that Kira was the only survivor from that team and he was most likely killed by Drakkon as with his Zeo version but Tommy would be later saved once the Grid is restored.
The Light Bearer
After losing his Green Ranger Powers during the arrival of Lord Zedd, Tommy goes to his Uncle Jack's cabin and prepares to leave Angel Grove, though he is later teleported away by Zordon and Alpha, with Zordon explaining that they were going to make Tommy an all new Power Ranger. Alpha opens a portal while Zordon says that the power source they need is on a distant world and Tommy will be tested to see if he is worthy, but he must do so alone.
Tommy decides to take the risk and enters the portal, after entering he sees a large alien tiger-like cat appear and then decides to follow it as it seems to be expecting him. Tommy follows the tiger until he comes to the fabled Tower of Light. Once he enters, he sees a large Power Coin inside a glowing orb on a shrine and walks toward it. Tommy then is stopped by Saba, he's at first happy to see him as he thought he was dead, remembering when he helped him fight against Lord Drakkon. This Saba says it is not that particular saber, that one is gone and from another time and place, it demands to be addressed as the Sword of the Light.
The Sword of the Light says the power can be claimed if he can get past him, Tommy tries to do it but he is beaten multiple times by the Sword while he's also taunted about visions of his alternative life as Lord Drakkon. Later portal begins to open with Lord Zedd emerging from him, Zedd grabs the Sword and says he wants to give the White Light to Tommy, as he believes he can unleash Tommy's true potential, offering Tommy to take the Light and bend it to his will to become the warrior he was always meant to be.
After Tommy rejects Zedd's offer, this was all revealed to be a trial by the Sword to see if he was worthy of being the light-bearer. Tommy returns with Zordon and Alpha, this time holding both the Sword of the Light and a Ranger helmet, they begin the power transfer while Zordon tells Tommy that he will also replace Jason as the team leader, something that he's hesitant to do at first. Tommy later morphs into the White Ranger and is introduced to his new team, much to their joy.
The Power Transfer
Sometime after Tommy starts leading the team, Jason, Zack and Trini were selected to go to a peace conference and they accepted to go. The Rangers then went on to retrieve The Sword of Light, an ancient artifact covered in dazzling jewels located on the Deserted Planet in the Furthest Galaxy, before Zedd tried to destroy the planet with his zord Serpentera. The sword had 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.
Tommy and the new Mighty Morphin team would later face Dayne, a Sirian bounty hunter that was hired by Lord Zedd, during their fight Tommy would be brutally beaten leaving him out of commission. While the other five Ranger faced Dayne again they would be rescued by a mysterious team of Rangers called the Omega Rangers. Tommy and the rest would later see that the Omegas managed to defeat Lord Zedd on the Moon Palace, Tommy was then attacked by Kiya, the Omega Blue Ranger, as she confused him with Lord Drakkon.
After Kiya betrayed the Omega Rangers, because she wanted to kill Tommy in order to prevent another Drakkon from being born. The Omega Rangers went to get some medical attention for one of their members that was badly injured in the Command Center, revealing that the three Omegas were Jason, Zack and Trini.While Trini and Zack went with Rocky, Adam, Aisha into space to find another empowered, Jason stayed on Earth and trained with Tommy while at the same time they argue about Jason's decision of leaving the team and going into space without telling them.
Tommy and Jason eventually went to Safehaven with the rest of the Rangers in order to stop Kiya, they eventually get the help from the Ranger Slayer while the others defeat Kiya and the Anointed with a new zord, after the fight they make amends with their friends before path their separate ways. Later the Rangers went to investigate a meteor that supposedly landed, but they found that it was a visibly aged and unstable Drakkon who had returned.

Brave, strong-willed, and dedicated, Tommy is an individual that very few people would ever be foolish enough to provoke. Possessed of an all-or-nothing mentality, Tommy is willing to sacrifice everything he has for the sake of his goals. It was likely for this reason that Rita chose him as her Green Ranger while she had control of the Green Power Coin. A serious and focused martial artist, Tommy is quick to criticize himself, and works hard to improve in any way he can, making him a danger not only to his enemies, but himself as well, as he often goes beyond his limits, such as coping with his dwindling connection to Rita who continued to wage psychological warfare on the young man and sow the seeds of dissent and doubt in his mind.
Tommy also suffers from a fear that he will not fit in with the other Rangers due to his history as brainwashed slave to Rita and their former enemy, and that the bad blood between him and the other Rangers still persists. Tommy also deeply fears that he may become like his alternate timeline counterpart, the Green/White Ranger, Lord Drakkon, who killed his own reality's Jason and Billy. Due to being different iterations of the same person, Tommy is terrified at the image of the person he might or might not become, the idea of committing such terrible acts visibly disturbing him, if not traumatizing him.
Tommy is hotheaded like many men his age, and is prone to fighting with his teammates when his loyalties are thrown into question. These fights are most commonly with Zack and Jason due to their respective histories as the first Ranger that Rita offered the Green Coin to and the Team Leader. Like Tommy, their combative personalities clash with Tommy's, unlike the more passive Kimberly, Trini, and Billy who Tommy is far more agreeable and friendly with.
Though not the tech wiz that Billy is, Tommy is still quick to react and strategize on the fly, such as protecting his mother from Scorpina by teleporting the crazed warrior far from his home with barely a moment to spare or giving up his powers to use his own Power Coin to restore his teammate's powers after the Black Dragon severed their connection to the Morphin Grid.
Following his death, Tommy's consciousness was preserved inside the Morphin Grid. As he watched Drakkon ravage the multiverse, he understood the truth: that in each world that had a Tommy Oliver, they were all good people, except for one: Drakkon. Armed with this undeniable truth about himself, Tommy's will became unstoppable, and proceeded to wear down Drakkon's mind in the new reality. Due to this newfound conviction, Tommy managed to break his alternate self in a duel within the Heart of the Master. Now a man come full circle, Tommy was calm enough to remain in control, and mature enough to offer mercy and friendship to the man who had taken his life. Confident in his decision to reboot the world before the Shattered Grid campaign, and he and Kim finally came to terms with their feelings, kissing before the world was made anew.
Despite being merely a man, Tommy Oliver has walked through darkness, braved the nature of evil, and even offered a hand of friendship to a sworn enemy. He was an outsider who found his place among the Rangers, becoming the remarkable man he could have only become with those who stood beside him through all his troubles.

In an episode of the YouTube web series Super Power Beat Down, which features actor Jason David Frank as Tommy, the Green Ranger's suit was given a one-off revamped look, featuring a more modernized suit design in a much darker shade of green and armed with the Sword of Darkness and the Dragon Dagger. This version of the Green Ranger would be made into a playable character in Power Rangers Legacy Wars, dubbed the Green Ranger V2 suit.
In its initial appearance, the helmet's color scheme resembled the original suit's green, though summoning the Dragon Dagger turned the helmet into a darker green while silver trims appeared on the helmet.

Behind the Scenes
- Tommy is played by Jason David Frank.
- As the Mighty Morphin' Green Ranger, his suit actors in Super Sentai footage from Zyuranger were Seiji Takaiwa (高岩 成二 Takaiwa Seiji), Yasuhiro Takeuchi (竹内 康博 Takeuchi Yasuhiro), and Naoki Ōfuji (大藤 直樹 Oofuji Naoki). In US footage, his suit actors were Erik Betts and Hien Nguyen.
- As the Mighty Morphin' White Ranger, his suit actor in Super Sentai footage from Dairanger was Minoru Watanabe (渡辺 実 Watanabe Minoru). In US footage, his suit actors were Hien Nguyen, Makoto Yokoyama (横山誠 Yokoyama Makoto), and Tatsuro Koike (小池達朗 Koike Tatsuro).
- As the Red Zeo Ranger, his suit actor in Super Sentai footage from Ohranger was Kazutoshi Yokoyama (横山 一敏 Yokoyama Kazutoshi). In US footage, his suit actor was Makoto Yokoyama (横山誠 Yokoyama Makoto).
- As the Red Turbo Ranger, his suit actor in Super Sentai footage from Carranger was Kazutoshi Yokoyama (横山 一敏 Yokoyama Kazutoshi). In US footage, his suit actors were Hiroshi Maeda (前田 浩 Maeda Hiroshi), (who also portrayed the Red Turbo Ranger in Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie), and Takahiro Honma (本間 崇寛 Honma Takahiro).
- As the Black Dino Thunder Ranger, his suit actor in Super Sentai footage from Abaranger was Hideaki Kusaka (日下 秀昭 Kusaka Hideaki) and his substitute was Jiro Okamoto (岡元 次郎 Okamoto Jirō). In US footage, his suit actor was Makoto Arakawa (荒川真 Arakawa Makoto).
- Many of Tommy's mannerisms and habits in MMPR were added to the character to accommodate the Super Sentai footage. In Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger, the Japanese series from which Power Rangers used its footage, in particular Tommy's counterpart Burai had to remain in a cave to preserve his limited life force so therefore would not turn up to a battle until he was desperately needed. Therefore, Tommy would usually be preoccupied with martial arts lessons or a Putty attack and also would not turn up until later. Also, the Green Candle story arc and transfer of Tommy's powers was used for when Burai died. As Tommy had become incredibly popular with viewers, Saban later paid Toei to produce more footage which allowed for Tommy to be brought back on the show. Tommy's relationship with Kimberly lead to the resulting new footage to focus on the Green and Pink rangers frequently acting together. When the footage ran out, the Green Ranger was completely written out for Tommy to become the White Ranger. Tommy's occasional jumping up and down while morphed was due to Kou, his White Ranger Sentai counterpart, being a child and growing into adult-sized when morphed.
- Due to Disney not wanting to pay for Jason David Frank's trip to New Zealand, he did not appear in person in the episodes in which the Dino Thunder and S.P.D. Power Rangers team up. In the S.P.D. episode Wormhole, aside from various recycled lines of dialogue, Jeffrey Parazzo (Trent's actor) voices Tommy and he does not appear out of costume.
- In the Italian dub of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Tommy is voiced by Gariele Calindri.
- Gabriele would also voice another dragon theme warrior, Dragon Shiryu, in Saint Saiya.
- In the Korean dub of Power Rangers, Tommy was voiced by Jun Kim, who later voiced Beet J. Stag in Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters (later adapted as Steel in Power Rangers Beast Morphers ).
- When the assets for MMPR were shipped over from Japan, the Dragon Shield and its armbands were damaged. The original Dragon Shield and its armbands were made of hard foam rubber, while the replacements made in America, for use when filming new scenes, were made of thin cloth. Also, the original Saban-made Green Ranger suit was also a noticeably different shade of green from its Sentai counterpart. This made it very obvious which shots were from Super Sentai and which were original to MMPR. This would not be corrected until a new Green Ranger costume was made for the dream sequence appearance of the Green MMPR Ranger in Dino Thunder.
- When a new Green Ranger suit was created for Dino Thunder, its design and props differ slightly from those of the Saban Era and the original DragonRanger design. A silver trim was added along the dragon nose on the helmet, the suit's color is now more Sentai-accurate (along with new boots and gloves), and the Power Morpher was changed from the original gold color to the standard silver used by the five main Mighty Morphin Rangers. The Dragon Shield and its armbands are now remade in the proper hard foam material of the original prop from Zyuranger, but the Dragon Shield is now double-sided and also featured the diamond shape on the back as well, unlike the Sentai original one. The Dragon Dagger is now more Sentai-accurate (although it still does not have the buttons in the correct position on the hilt), and the holster is now white and on the wrong hip. This suit was kept for future appearances of the Green MMPR Ranger, such as a new picture of the Green Ranger used in the second volume of the Season 1 of Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers on DVD, and the Complete Series DVD set.
- During filming of the episode "Legendary Battle" in Super Megaforce, this suit would be reused for the MMPR Green Ranger's appearance. However, the silver-trimmed helmet and the silver-plated Power Morpher were digitally recolored in almost every shot featuring the MMPR Green Ranger in post-production, in order to resemble the original DragonRanger suit and match with the Gokaiger footage, although a few shots were missed. The only change of the MMPR Green Ranger suit was the Dragon Dagger holster, which was changed to a black one and placed on the correct hip; again, in order to resemble the original suit and match with the footage.
- In the episode "Dimensions in Danger" in Super Ninja Steel, this suit would slightly change once again, in order to resemble more closely to the one from Zyuranger, despite the MMPR Green Ranger only appear in original footage. The helmet was changed with a new one which no longer features the silver trim along the dragon nose and the Power Morpher was changed with a a golden-plated one, as both props were remade for the episode.
- When Dr. Tommy Oliver arrives at Reefside High School he is wearing his last Ranger color from "Forever Red", which is Red. Despite this, in the flashback scene which airs right after the opening credits in Day of the Dino: Part I, Tommy wears a black T-Shirt under a grey shirt, which is almost the same with what he wears in Day of the Dino: Part II.
- As the White Ranger, Tommy is the only Ranger of the original team to have a helmet without sculpted lips.
- Tommy's name is a reference to Tony Oliver, one of the creators of the show.
- Along with having the most episode appearances of any Ranger, Tommy also holds the record for having the longest continuous stint as leader of the team, being named leader in the early half of Season 2 when he received the White Ranger powers, and not leaving until half-way through Season 5, in the episode Passing the Torch.
- Tommy is the Ranger with the most color-changes, as he has been green, white, red and black.
- Tommy wears long sleeves in every Dino Thunder episode he has appeared because by this time, Jason David Frank had gained tattoo sleeves on his arms. Frank also has tattoos on his chest, which were also covered during his return to the show.
- In the Japanese dub of Power Rangers, Tommy was voiced by Kōji Ochiai, who later voiced Black Knight Bullblack in Seijuu Sentai Gingaman.
- In 1993, the profile card for Tommy on the box of the Dragonzord toy with Green Ranger toy revealed Tommy's birthday as October 20. This would give him the same birthday as his teammate, Jason Lee Scott, the original Mighty Morphin' Red Ranger.
- Tommy holds the distinction of being both the first Green Ranger as well as the first White Ranger in the Power Rangers franchise.
- Tommy is the only Ranger to create foot soldiers, the Tyrannodrones.
- Tommy is the only Ranger to subsequently appear in more than 200 episodes.
- Additionally, Tommy has appeared in eight different series of Power Rangers, the most of any Ranger.
- Tommy is the first mentor to become a Ranger.
- Tommy is the first Power Rangers leader to not be the team's Red Ranger.
- Tommy is the only Ranger of the original team to last all the way to Turbo.

- Assuming Tommy being a "Freshman" in MMPR1 is correct, then he's 14 years old as that is the usual age of Freshman students at High School, and born in 1979.
