|This article is about a/an Morpher in Power Rangers Turbo, the third season in the Zordon Era .|
- "Shift Into Turbo!"
- ―Morphing call.[src]
In 1997, the space pirate Divatox and her crew decide to release Maligore so that she can marry him and pillage the universe easily. To do so, they kidnap Lerigot of Liaria, descendant of the ancient wizards who sealed the fire demon, and set out for the Island of Muiranthias in their Subcraft. Knowing that the Zeozords will not survive the trip, Zordon has the Zeo Rangers abandon their powers in favor of the Turbo Morphers. Whilst four of the Zeo Rangers take up the powers, Rocky is injured earlier in the day during a martial arts accident and Justin Stewart is forced to take his place as the Blue Ranger.
Special alternative Turbo Morphers are later used by the special during their short stay on Earth.
Shortly after the destruction of the Zords by Goldgoyle and the destruction of the Power Chamber by Divatox, the Turbo Morphers lose all power and render the Turbo Rangers powerless. This is due to their powers being derived from Eltar which is conquered by the United Alliance of Evil and the power source is cut off.
Later on, Storm Blaster escapes captivity after its capture during the Power Chamber attack and gives Justin a re-powered Turbo Morpher for a time. How it was re-powered is never made certain.
T.J. later readopts his identity as the Red Turbo Rangers as part of the Veteran Red Rangers to destroy General Venjix and the Machine Empire remnants. It is likely that it was powered by Eltar after Zordon's Energy Wave saved it.
The Turbo Rangers are seen among the other Legendary Rangers when they join the Legendary Rangers to aid the Mega Rangers in the final battle against the Armada. Since Adam, Tanya and Kat are representing the Zeo Rangers, Tommy is morphed as the Mighty Morphin Green Ranger and the Space Rangers are also present, this leaves only the Robot Rangers to be the ones who reunite with Justin.
Although Tommy does not adopt his Red Turbo Ranger form on this occasion, his Turbo powers have been transferred into his Master Morpher which negates the need for the Turbo Morphers. His Turbo powers are lost when he uses them to survive a wall falling on top of him courtesy of his son, J.J. Oliver.
To morph, the Rangers would shout out "Shift into Turbo!", rotate their wrists to summons the Morphers, and the Rangers insert their Turbo Keys which were based on the wizard Lerigot's mystical key, into the Morpher which is based on a car's gear shifter and ignition switch. They would proceed to proclaim the following phrases but these were discarded once the senior Turbo Rangers recruited their replacements and the sequence would be heavily sped up.
- "Mountain Blaster, Turbo Power!" - Justin
- "Desert Thunder, Turbo Power!" - Adam
- "Dune Star, Turbo Power!" - Tanya
- "Wind Chaser, Turbo Power!" - Kat
- "Red Lightning, Turbo Power!" - Tommy
Behind the Scenes
- Originally, the Turbo Morphers and arsenal were going to be created by former Blue Ranger Billy Cranston but this was dropped when he left the show due to harassment over his sexuality.
- Almost every time that the Rangers morphed, the actors would almost always fail to correctly insert the Turbo Keys into the Morphers due to the speed that their hands were required to move. As such, a glow effect was always added over the Morphers to hide this fact.
