Hero Overview

It's Morphin' Time!
~ Tommy Oliver's most famous quote.

Thomas "Tommy" Oliver is a Power Ranger veteran (later a master), considered to be one of the greatest — if not the greatest — Power Ranger in history and a major protagonist from the Power Rangers television series, serving as the main protagonist. He is also the love interest of both Pink Rangers Katherine Hillard and Kimberly Ann Hart but he became the husband of Katherine Hillard and the father of J.J. Oliver. He is one of the six main protagonists in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Power Rangers Zeo, the 1st half of Turbo, and the deuteragonist in Dino Thunder.

He is portrayed by Jason David Frank.

Powers and Abilities

Tommy is an extremely skilled martial artist and has used a variety of different ranger powers over the years. All of these powers increased his fighting skills and abilities, but each offered him different weapons and Zords and sometimes other powers. The first was that of the Green Dragon Ranger, which gave Tommy use of the Dragon Dagger, Dragon Shield, and a Blade Blaster, which was a side-arm that worked as a short sword and a laser gun and command of the Dragonzord. As the White Tiger Ranger, he wielded Saba and piloted the Tigerzord and as the White Ninja Ranger, Tommy could enter a ninja form, where he could use various ninja powers, such as disappearing then reappearing and using super speed.

He could also utilize the Metallic Armor, which could increase the protection his ranger suit offered him and the White Shark Cycle, which was a lightweight and powerful motorcycle that was made from the fin of a prehistoric shark and piloted the Falconzord and the White Shogunzord. After Tommy became the Red Zeo Ranger, his powers continually grew more powerful due to them being derived from the Zeo Crystal. His arsenal included a Zeo Laser Blade and a Zeo Laser Pistol, which acted as his sidearms, the Zeo Power Sword, Zeo Jet Cycle V, which served the purpose of replacing the White Shark Cycle and the Defender Wheel. Tommy’s Zords as the Red Zeo Ranger consisted of Zeozord V, the Red Battlezord, and Super Zeozord V.

When he became the Red Turbo Ranger, Tommy had the Auto Blaster and Turbo Sword as sidearms, the Turbo Lightning Sword, a Turbo Navigator, and a Turbo Cart, a small vehicle reminiscent of a go-cart in his arsenal and his zord was the Red Lightning Turbozord. As the Black Dino Ranger, Tommy used the Brachio Staff, which could unleash powerful elemental attacks and an energy orb, a Black Raptor Rider, a raptor based mount creature, and a Dino ATV, an enhanced all-terrain vehicle that could fire energy blasts. He could also enter Super Dino Mode, which increased his strength. Tommy had command of the Dino Thunder Carrierzord, the Brachiozord, also giving him command of the Cephalazord, Dimetrozord, Stegozord, Parasaurzord, and Ankylozord.

In addition of his skills as a Ranger, Tommy also possesses vast knowledge about Morphing Grid and means to develop new Power Ranger technology presumably thanks to his time with Zordon and Alpha 5, most notably through participating with the latter two in perfecting his new White Ranger power to replace his original Green one that rendered inaccessible. Following the discovery of Dinogems, he developed arsenal for Dino Thunder Rangers to use as well as the backdoor program for Biozords (giant mechanical dinosaurs infused with their respective template's DNA he originally created with aid of Anton Mercer) connected with Morphin Grid so as to turn them into true Zords. His other work includes Master Morpher, which allows him to access every Ranger powers he mastered in his lifetime.
