A short time after Jason and Tommy discovered Titanus, the Rangers fought against Rita Repulsa’s Wheel of Misfortune. In an effort to destroy the monstrous wheel, the Red Ranger called upon the power of Titanus to finish it off. As Titanus rolled into battle, the Rangers merged the Megazord with Dragonzord to create a new formation called Mega Dragonzord. [MMPR1: “Wheel of Misfortune“]

The cockpit was located within the head of the Megazord and used the same setup and controls as the Megazord. Normally, the Mega Dragonzord would be piloted by the Red, Blue, Black, Pink and Yellow Rangers. However, upon return from Rita Repulsa’s Island of Illusion, the Green Ranger joined the other Rangers, standing behind the Red Ranger in the cockpit.

 

Powers and abilities

The new combination would normally be used only for the formation of Ultrazord, but it was capable of battle. When the Mega Dragonzord faced down Mutitis, it was able to generate a wave of energy attacks channeled through the Z arrays at either side of the Zord and the silver stripe of the Pterodactyl Dinozord chest plate. However, this wave of energy was never shown to be powerful enough to destroy any monsters. [MMPR1: “Island of Illusion, Part II“]

The formation could generate a sphere of energy which, when fully charged could be projected towards giant monsters. The destructive power of the Z sphere caused the disintegration of the mutated Mutitis, Scorpina’s Worm monster [MMPR1: “A Star is Born“] and the Rhinoblaster. [MMPR1: “Football Season“]

In late 1993, Zordon equipped the Zords with a new security system designed to protect them from destruction if they ever lost in battle. The system would disassemble the Zords piece by piece and return them to their secret hiding places to re-energize them. [MMPR1: “Doomsday, Part II“]
