This article is about a/an Morpher in Power Rangers Turbo, the third season in the Zordon Era .

"Shift Into Turbo!"
―Morphing call.[src]

"Anybody know what time it is? It's Morphin' Time!"
Brody and the Legendary Rangers.[src]

The Turbo Morphers were the  transmission gear panel-themed Morphers used by the Turbo Rangers. Like the Zeonizers, the Morpher materialized when needed on the Rangers' wrists.

Morpher History

Turbo

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.

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. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Chase into Space

In Space

De-powered, the Turbo Rangers (sans Justin who has moved away) discard their useless Turbo Morphers and later gain the Astro Morphers to become the Space Rangers. Tvicon.png TV STORY-From Out of Nowhere

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. Tvicon.png TV STORY-True Blue to the Rescue

Wild Force

TJ 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. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Forever Red

Super Megaforce

Alternative to the Turbo Morphers, the Super Mega Rangers use the Legendary Ranger Keys provided by Gosei to become the Turbo Rangers Legendary Ranger Mode. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Love Is In the Air

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.

Super Ninja Steel

Kat regains her Turbo Morpher but is kidnapped by Lord Draven to create Pink Turbo Robo Rangers. After she is freed by a Ranger army, she uses her Turbo Ranger form to destroy Draven and his army. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Dimensions in Danger

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. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Power Rangers: Soul of the Dragon

Morphing Sequences

To morph, the Rangers would shout out "Shift into Turbo!", rotate thier 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. TThey 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.
