Tommy was the first Ranger to have a theme song, and the only Ranger to have more than one. The Green Ranger's theme was called "Go Green Ranger Go" and the White Ranger's theme was "White Ranger, Tiger Power". Tommy also had a short lived "Go White Ranger Go" theme song which was only played a couple of times after he became the White Ranger. Once he became the Red Zeo Ranger, he no longer had a personal theme song.

In Mighty Morphin Power Rangers

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (MMPR) is an American live-action television series, created for the American market, based on the sixteenth installment of the Japanese Super Sentai franchise, Kyōryū Sentai Zyuranger. ...

As the Green Ranger

Tommy as the Green Power Ranger
Tommy as the Green Power Ranger

Tommy was first introduced in the Mighty Morphin incarnation as the Green Power Ranger in the mini-saga Green with Evil. As a new student at Angel Grove High School, Tommy faced Jason in a Martial Arts Tournament, catching both Kimberly and Rita Repulsa's attention. Tommy's fighting talent equated that of Jason, prompting Rita to grant him with the Green Ranger powers. Rita cast an evil spell to make Tommy loyal to her, granting him limited magic-based powers on top of the Dragon Power Coin. The reason for this was because his Ranger powers were fueled by Rita's dark magic rather than the Morphing Grid, like the other Rangers. Following a battle with the Putties to test his skills, Tommy's given mission was to destroy Zordon, the Command Center, and the Power Rangers, leaving the world defenseless against Rita's conquest. Image File history File links GreenRanger. ... Image File history File links GreenRanger. ... Green with Evil was a five-part story arc in the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers series. ... Jason Lee Scott is a fictional character in the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers TV series, played by Austin St. ... Rita Repulsa, known in the Japanese Super Sentai show, Zyuranger, as Witch Bandora, is a fictional character from the TV series Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. ... In the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers series, the Power Coins were magical golden coins which enabled the Power Rangers to morph. ...


Tommy succeeded with the majority of his mission, discarding Zordon, demolishing the Command Center, and infecting Alpha with a virus while ejecting the Power Rangers from their own Megazord. His Green Ranger powers gave him an added tool not possessed by the other Rangers, the Dragon Shield. Controlled by the Dragon Dagger, the Dragon Shield promotes advanced healing and can deflect energy attacks. Added to this was the ability to generate powerful energy projections, and the Green Ranger was able to contend with all the other Power Rangers at once, only to be warded off by the Megazord.


After the nefarious Scorpina was released from her isolated internment, she and her newly reunited mate Goldar began wreaking havoc together. In a then never-before-seen act of malice, Rita made the Green Ranger grow alongside her henchmen. Together, the trio would decimate the Megazord and send its powerless body plummeting into the Earth's lava-filled core.


Tommy's Dragon Dagger was capable of summoning and controlling his own Zord, the Dragonzord. Once the Rangers' Zords were gone, he summoned his to raze the defenseless city of Angel Grove. Eventually, a newly resurrected Zordon would return the Rangers to their Dinozords after explaining that the Earth's lava naturally healed them. As the Megazord overcame the Dragonzord, Jason would fight Tommy alone in a final battle that saw Jason destroying Tommy's Sword of Darkness, a weapon given to Tommy by Rita that would maintain the spell over Tommy. In order to make reparations for his evil deeds, Tommy agreed to Zordon's rules as for Rangerdom, accepted a communicator from Billy, and dedicated himself and his powers to battling down the wicked Rita Repulsa.


Tommy's fierce fighting abilities were contrasted by his nervousness around Kimberly Hart, the Pink Power Ranger, who he had alienated when he was evil. Kimberly would forgive him for his transgressions, but it wasn't until he lost his powers to Rita after she used a Green Candle, made of special wax once touched by Tommy, to sever his link to the Morphing Grid, did the Pink Ranger return his affections. Kimberly as the original Pink Ranger Kimberly Ann Hart (commonly referred to as just Kim) is a fictional character in the Power Rangers universe. ...


In this encounter involving the Green Candle, Goldar kept the lit item in the Dark Dimension and held Tommy captive there, knowing that his proximity would cause the candle's melting process to accelerate. Jason would make the attempt to get through Goldar to retrieve the candle, but Rita's succession of attacks perpetrated by a monster capable of mimicking every Zord and Zord combination, would prevent him from getting to it in time. As Tommy's powers faded, he was left with one last opportunity to keep the powers from returning to Rita: he would have to give the powers over to another individual who possessed a stable link to the Morphing Grid for the Green Ranger powers to function on. He chose Jason.


When Rita kidnapped the parents of all the students at Angel Grove High School, the Rangers were forced to acquiesce to Goldar's ransom of their parents for their five Power Coins. After making the personal decision to make the trade, Goldar's deception was revealed when he refused to return the parents, or the Dragon Dagger Rita had brainwashed Billy into stealing for her. As Goldar commanded the Dragonzord to demolish the defenseless Angel Grove, Jason revealed his own deception: his gambit of defecting his Power Coin to Goldar lead to the oversight that he still possessed the Dragon Coin.


The Rangers recruited Tommy to reclaim his powers and he was assisted by an energy boost from Zordon that would temporarily energize him in replacement of his missing direct link to the Morphing Grid. However, his powers were very unstable now and had to be recharged several times by Zordon. In using the depleting powers to retrieve the missing items, Tommy reached into a force-field and appeared to have been lethally affected. Eventually, it would be learned that the electrocution he underwent by the force-field, while wearing the Green Ranger powers, revitalized its power source substantially. Tommy could once again reclaim his powers, provided that he periodically seek regeneration by a donation of Zordon's own energies.


In Season 2, his powers were completely destroyed when Lord Zedd trapped Tommy in another dimension, called the Otherworld, as his monster, the Turbanshell attacked the city (the other Rangers were trapped in a force-field without access to the Morphing Grid as the Command Center was also trapped in a force-field, which was shrinking and threatening to crush it). Zedd used a special crystal to drain the Green Ranger powers and use them to fuel another band of evil Rangers. As a last ditch effort, it was by Tommy's hands that the powers were destroyed when he shattered the crystal, rather than let the powers it held, his powers, be used for evil like they had been before. In doing this, he spent the last of those powers fulfilling the promise he made to about how to use them once he was free of Rita's influence. Lord Zedd is a villain from the TV series Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. ... This is a list of fictional monsters from the Power Rangers universe, specifically those that first appeared in the television series Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. ...


As the White Ranger

For a short time, Tommy was absent from helping the other Rangers defeat Zedd's henchmen. Distraught by the loss of the powers he did not originally seek out, Tommy retreats into isolation at a distant lake, residing in a cabin his uncle owns. However, when Lord Zedd unleashed his maniacal Nimrod monster, which in turn spawned AC and DC, Alpha 5 and Zordon decided it was time to take matters into their own hands.

Luckily for the Rangers, Zordon and Alpha 5 were able to create new powers for Tommy, making him the White Power Ranger - a Ranger with powers that cannot be made evil. Upon becoming the White Ranger, Tommy also became the new leader of the Power Rangers. He uses his enchanted talking saber, Saba, to summon the White Tigerzord.

After Jason, Trini, and Zack were chosen to attend a peace conference in Switzerland, replacement Rangers had to be found. These Rangers were Rocky DeSantos, Aisha Campbell, and Adam Park.

A clone of Tommy was created by the Wizard of Deception, using a lock of Tommy's hair. The clone was then given the power of the Green Ranger, which had previously been believed to be destroyed forever. In truth, Zedd managed to regain the powers and use them to recharge the Dragon Power Coin to its full and complete power. How he did this remains speculative; but what is certain is that Rita, who had returned and charmed Zedd into marrying her, encouraged him to summon the Wizard and recreate her Evil Green Ranger. This was an interesting story because it made Tommy face the evil that he once was and deal with it (until now, Tommy had not wanted to talk about his Green Ranger past, as was seen in the episode "Lights, Camera, Action"). Tommy destroyed the Wizard of Deception, breaking the spell on the Green Ranger. The White Ranger helped his clone realize that even though he was a clone, he was still human and had the power to choose between right and wrong. The clone Tommy (referred to as "Tom") remained in the colonial times of Angel Grove after the two of them traveled back there to save the other Rangers. He kept the Dragon Coin with him, as well as the powers it held. What happened to him and the coin however was never explained, though it is assumed that the Green Power Coin might have survived and could be active as it was not directly connected to the main Morphing Grid like the others.


After their Thunderzords were destroyed by Rito Revolto, Tommy and the other Rangers went on a quest to find the legendary Ninjor and receive their Ninja Coins. He gained new powers as the White Ninja Ranger with the power of the Falcon and the Falcon Ninjazord. Tommy met Katherine Hillard at a time when she was also under Rita's spell. Kat used Kimberly Hart's Pink Ninja Power Coin, to steal the Falconzord and did not retrieve it until the Rangers gained the power of Metallic Armor.

After Kat stole the Falconzord and Ninjor, she kidnapped Kimberly. Zedd revived the Shogunzords and ordered the Power Rangers to either use them to destroy Earth or have Kimberly's life force drained away. Billy managed to reprogram the zords to the Rangers' control again. Tommy himself went to retrieve Kimberly from Zedd's Dark Dimension. He fought with Zedd, but Zedd proved to be too powerful for him. Tommy managed to destroy Zedd's Z-Staff, forcing him to retreat, and Tommy escaped with Kimberly. Tommy gained control of the White Shogunzord. Afterwards, Kimberly retired from active Ranger service so that she could compete in gymnastics, passing her powers onto Kat. Kimberly and Tommy maintained a long-distance relationship. In the Power Rangers universe, Zords are colossal mechanical or bio-mechanical robots. ...


Tommy had to retrieve the Zeo Crystal, which was hidden under Rita and Zedd's Palace. Zordon had told him that only a being who was pure of heart could enter the force field around the crystal and survive. Tommy had to go through the Caves of Deception to get to the crystal, and when he got to it, he wasn't sure if he would survive. He thought that there might still be some evil in him from when he was the Evil Green Ranger. He bravely passed through the force field and retrieved the crystal. Soon after though, Master Vile stole it from him. The Rangers managed to get it back, but wanted to make sure that Master Vile couldn't get it again, so the Rangers split it into five sub-crystals and sent them to different points in history. Master Vile is a fictional villain in the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers TV Series. ...


Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers The Movie

Tommy appeared in this movie. Because this movie takes place in an alturnate timeline from the series, it is unclear if Tommy commanded the White Tiger Thunder Zord or if he ever was the Green Ranger, although he still had the Tiger Power Coin. Tommy was depowered by Ivan Ooze and had to travel to Phaedos. There he gained the power of the Ninjetti and a White Falcon NinjaZord. His morphing call in this movie was changed to "White Tiger!"


In Mighty Morphin Alien Rangers

Vile turned back time using the Orb of Doom, turning the Rangers back into children. Billy devises a plan to restore the Rangers' true ages using a machine that runs on the Power Coins. Billy restores himself, but Goldar steals the machine and Lord Zedd and Rita Repulsa destroy all six Ninja Power Coins. With his Falcon Ninja Power Coin destroyed and his White Tiger Power Coin damaged beyond use, a young Tommy journeyed to reclaim the Red Zeo Sub-Crystal in a Native American land. For his test, he was given three crystals (two were fakes) and he had to decide which one was real. He retrieved the true Red Sub-Crystal from Sam Trueheart.

Tommy gained the powers of the Red Zeo Crystal, becoming the Red Zeo Ranger (Zeo Ranger V – Red) in Power Rangers: Zeo. It was during this time that he and Kimberly separated after she broke up with him in a Dear John Letter. Kat Hillard tried to set him up with another girl, but it failed due to Tommy's intervening Ranger duties. Kat and Tommy would eventually begin courting, their first date taking place at a luau that a returning Ernie threw, which was then ruined by attacking Cogs. They later went on a "boring" (Tommy sarcastically remarked) movie date. In the Zeo season finale, "A Season to Remember", which takes place in the future, with Tommy telling his young grandson about the Christmas that took place during the Zeo era, he is shown to be married with Kat. Their older grandson appears as well, and is presumed to be a Power Ranger as well, with a communicator similar to the ones used by Zordon's Rangers.

After the Zeo Zords were severely damaged, Tommy alone was left the Red Battlezord, a Zord that was telepathically controlled. He had difficulty learning to operate the mind link and would lose control when becoming emotional. A spirit quest would eventually provide Tommy with the peace of mind needed to control the lone Zord, however, during this journey, Tommy would meet his brother David Trueheart (portrayed by Jason David Frank's real life brother, the late Eric Frank). King Mondo captured David in order to trap Tommy. After freeing him, Tommy would reveal his identity as a Ranger to David, who refused to let a helpless Tommy remain behind. To convince David to flee to safety, Tommy revealed his identity to him. It would then be learned that David had the other half of the arrowhead. Should the two arrowheads be joined, the holder of the arrowhead would control both the spirits trapped within them and a darkness powerful enough to destroy the world. In the universe of the television series Power Rangers, Zords are colossal mechanical or bio-mechanical robotic vehicles. ...


Tommy would be reunited with his best friend and former-teammate Jason Lee Scott, when the Gold Ranger Trey of Triforia was injured. Tommy would choose Jason who had returned from the Peace Conference, to temporarily hold the Gold Ranger Powers.


Tommy was later captured by Prince Gasket of the evil Machine Empire and brainwashed fighting his friends, believing them to be the threat to the world. The other Rangers, and especially Kat and Jason, were able to save him though, by de-morphing and surrendering to prove they weren't against him.

In Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie

When the evil Space Pirate Divatox threatens to raise a powerful monster named Maligore to marry her, Tommy, along with the other rangers, accept new Turbo powers and becomes the Red Turbo Ranger, and gains the Red Lightning Turbo Zord.


When Tommy finds out that Divatox is holding Jason and Kimberly captive, it is implied that his former feelings for Kim causes him to make poor choices and irrational decisions. He calms down later when Kim is safe and sound, and didn't seem to harbor any romantic feelings towards her after that.

In the episode "Passing the Torch," Divatox captured Tommy after her mother convinced her that removing the leader would be the key to the Power Rangers' defeat. However, T.J. Johnson and Cassie Chan managed to find and rescue him after Kat failed to fend off a group of Pirahnatrons.

In College

For some time, the preceding years of Tommy's life remained undefined, although his reappearance in Power Rangers: Dino Thunder fills in some of the gaps. Tommy went on to college and graduate school, earning a doctorate in paleontology. During this time, he met Hayley (who would help him in the creation of the Dino Ranger powers based on parts of older Rangers' powers). 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 new Dinozords. A horrible lab accident leads to the transformation of Dr. Mercer into the evil Mesogog, and also leaves Smitty for dead until Mesogog revives him as the evil cyborg Zeltrax.

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.

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.

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 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 a final battle against Zeltrax, Tommy advises 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.
