~ Tommy Oliver
Tommy Oliver is a character from the Power Rangers TV Series. He has been the Mighty Morphin' Green Ranger, the Mighty Morphin' White Ranger, Zeo Ranger V, the Red Turbo Ranger, and the Black Dino Ranger.
While he was a freshman in high school, Tommy Oliver and his family moved to the city of Angel Grove. After fighting Jason Lee Scott, Angel Grove's best martial artist and secretly the Red Ranger of the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, to a tie in a martial arts competition, he earned the attention of Rita Repulsa, an evil witch who was the Power Rangers' arch-enemy. She saw potential in the young man, and decided to make him into an evil Power Ranger to take on the other Rangers. Placing Tommy under a spell to control his mind and giving him the Dragon Power Coin, Rita created the Green Ranger, who was far too strong for the Rangers to fight. However, the Rangers eventually broke Tommy out of Rita's control, with his powers intact, and he joined the Power Rangers in an attempt to make up for what he did under Rita's spell. Over the years, Tommy has taken on several different Ranger identities, and is often seen as the best Power Ranger ever due to his experience.
Powers & Abilities
Master Martial Artist: Tommy is an incredibly skilled martial artist, which makes him good in a fight, even while unmorphed. He is said to be skilled in Karate, Kung Fu, Kenpo, Taekwondo, Judo, Shinkido, and Wing Chun. Tommy's skill in martial arts has allowed him to perform physics-defying moves, such as repeated mid-air bicycle kicks, and spinning drill kicks.
Invisibility: After bonding with the Black Dino Gem, Tommy gained the power to turn himself invisible to the naked eye at will, though he can only do it while unmorphed.
Morphers: Devices that Tommy uses to access his different Ranger powers. They allow him to morph through creating a brief entrance to the Morphin' Grid, an energy field that links all forms of life, which he passes through to gain his powers.
Power Morpher: Tommy's original Morpher, which allowed him to become the Green Ranger, White Ranger, and White Ninja Ranger with the Dragon, Tiger, and Falcon Power Coins respectively.
Zeonizer: Tommy's Zeo Ranger Morpher, which allows him to harness the Zeo Crystal's power to become Zeo Ranger V.
Turbo Morpher: By inserting the Turbo Key into the Turbo Morpher, Tommy can become the Red Turbo Ranger.
Brachio Morpher: Tommy's most recent Morpher, which contains the Black Dino Gem that bonded to him. Using the Dino Gem's power, Tommy can become the Black Dino Ranger.
Green Ranger: Tommy's first Power Ranger form is the Green Ranger of the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers. After the witch Rita Repulsa decided to stop the Power Rangers by making her own evil Ranger, she brainwashed Tommy and granted him his Green Ranger powers. Like all Ranger powers, morphing into the Green Ranger grants Tommy increased strength, speed, and durability, along with new weapons and powers.
Dragon Dagger: The Green Ranger's signature weapon. The Dragon Dagger is a knife capable of firing both concussive blasts of green energy, and bolts of emerald lightning at targets. It can also be played like a flute, which allows Tommy to summon and control the Dragonzord, even from outside its cockpit.
Dragon Shield: The golden shield that the Green Ranger wears on his chest. It grants Tommy a power boost, making hims stronger than the other Rangers, and helps him control the Dragonzord.
Blade Blaster: The Rangers' personal sidearm, which can take the form of either a sword, or a laser gun.
Dragonzord: The Green Ranger's personal Zord, a giant war robot that Tommy uses to fight enemies too strong for him to fight on foot. The Dragonzord is usually asleep in the ocean, but Tommy can awaken and control it using the Dragon Dagger by playing it like a flute. The Dragonzord is incredibly powerful, able to defeat the much more advanced Tigerzord in combat.
Drill: The Dragonzord's main weapon is the drill on its tail.
Missiles: The Dragonzord has launchers in its fingertips, which can fire missiles.
White Ranger: After losing his Green Ranger powers permanently, Tommy was able to regain his Ranger powers with the help of Zordon, who forged the Tiger Power Coin for him. This allowed Tommy to become the White Ranger of the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, making him even stronger than before.
Saba: Tommy's main weapon as the White Ranger. Saba is an enchanted shortsword that can fly, project energy beams from the eyes on its pommel, and control the Tigerzord when inserted into the controls. Saba is also sentient, and can talk to Tommy to help him in combat.
White Shark Cycle: A motorcycle created from the fossilized fin of a prehistoric shark, which the White Ranger uses for transportation.
Metallic Armor: A power-up mode for the White Ranger, which turns his armor a silvery-gray metallic color. In this mode, Tommy's strikes get stronger due to the metal-like consistency of his armor, and his suit can reflect light as a volatile blast.
White Tigerzord: With his new powers, Tommy obtained the Tigerzord as his new Zord. The Tigerzord has two modes, its ordinary mode, which looks like a giant tiger, and Warrior Mode, where its takes on a humanoid appearance. It does most of its fighting in Warrior Mode, and Tommy can use Saba to make the Tigerzord copy his movements while in this mode for more precise combat.
Golden Tiger Sword: While in Warrior Mode, the Tigerzord uses its normal mode's tail as a sword as its main weapon. The sword can be coated with flames to boost the power of its slashes.
Hyperspeed: A function of the Tigerzord that greatly enhances its movement speed.
Sonic Blasts: Either from its mouth, or the head on its chestplate in Warrior Mode, the Tigerzord can produce power sonic blasts to blow away or disorient its foes.
White Tiger Thunderbolt: By inserting on of the orbs in the Tigerzord's cockpit into its controls, Tommy can have the Tigerzord shoot destructive fireballs from the mouth on its chestplate.
Mega Tigerzord: By combining with the Lion, Firebird, Griffon, and Dragon Thunderzords, the Tigerzord can become the Mega Tigerzord, which is used when the normal Tigerzord isn't enough to win. The Mega Tigerzord is much stronger than the ordinary Tigerzord, and it even surpasses the Thunder Megazord in power.
Phoenix Strike: The Mega Tigerzord's primary finisher. After lighting the Firebird Thunderzord on fire, the Mega Tigerzord launches it at the opponent as a projectile, blasting through them with one attack.
White Ninja Falconzord: After the destruction of the Tigerzord, Tommy obtained the Ninja Falconzord from Ninjor. This Zord is essential to using the Ninja Zords, as losing control over it means losing control over the other Ninja Zords as well.
Energy Beams: The Falconzord can shoot energy beams from its beak.
Missiles: The Falconzord can fire missiles and rockets from launchers in its wings.
White Shogunzord: When the Falconzord was captured by Lord Zedd, the Rangers were blackmailed into using the Shogunzords, ancient Zords that were under Zedd's control. However, they eventually broke Zedd's control over the Zords, and took them as their own. The White Shogunzord was Tommy's, which he later co-piloted with the Pink Ranger Kat. The White Shogunzord is more consistently useful than the Falconzord in combat, due to its more humanoid shape being better in close-ranged combat.
Tongs: The White Shogunzord wields a pair of dual tongs as its main weapons.
White Ninja Ranger: After the destruction of the Thunderzords, the Power Rangers were forced to get new powers from Ninjor to fight the Tenga Warriors. Though they were much weaker than their original powers, the Ninja Ranger powers had their benefits, and they were enough to defeat the Tenga Warriors. As the White Ninja Ranger, Tommy can't pilot a Zord, and isn't strong enough enough to beat Zedd and Rita's monsters, but he gains an arsenal of magical abilities.

Zeo Ranger V: In order to fight the Machine Empire, Tommy and the Power Rangers used to Zeo Crystal to become the Zeo Rangers, with Tommy becoming the Red Zeo Ranger, the leader of the group. The Zeo Crystal is stated to constantly get stronger over time, meaning that Tommy grows stronger with each passing moment as he uses his Zeo Ranger powers.

Zeo Laser Pistol: A laser gun that fires blasts of red energy, which can combine with the Zeo Laser Sword to get stronger.
