* Given the White Ranger powers in the middle of season two, Tommy spent the second half of season two and the first half of season three beating monsters by himself (while both morphed and unmorphed), thrashing armies, and constantly saving the day single-handedly (almost to distraction. It got to the point where the show was basically Tommy And His Five Incompetent Friends). Then, we get "Changing of the Zords part 3". We knew Tommy loved Kimberly and vice versa. Say what you will about the Dear John letter in ''Zeo'', but T.O. deserves credit for not rolling over for Zedd, instead charging into another dimension to rescue the woman he loved (who had her Power Coin stolen, thus slowing killing her [as unlike the Dino Coins, the Ninja Coins were tied to their life forces], and until ''Lost Galaxy'', was as close to dying as any Ranger had ever been), finding Lord Zedd standing there, and confronting him... even though ''Lord Zedd kicks Tommy's ass into next week in an epic one-sided curb-stomp'' (There wasn't another example of a villain so thoroughly pwning his Ranger counterpart for ''years'' afterwards, when Astronema nearly killed her brother Andros, and that was only because Andros wasn't fighting back, while Tommy was). Zedd only loses through the fight through plot-mandated technicality but there's a very good reason that, even after 20 years, Zedd is still the emperor of bad-ass Power Ranger villains.

** The "Changing of the Zords" saga was the best thing that ever happened to Zedd. He had those kids ''screwed'' in every way, not to mention almost killing Kimberly (and make no mistake, he came damn close to ending her life). The only reason he lost was because he didn't expect the Rangers to cheat but that three-parter restored so much badassedness to Zedd. It was a long time coming.

* Continuing his bad-assedness in the multi-part story mentioned above, Zedd also visited the Power Rangers' secret HQ and then mocked everything, from Alpha's [[TheWoobie woobieness]] to saying that Rita could make a better interior decorator. A BigBad would never enter a Ranger base again until Astronema briefly conquered the Megaship with brainwashed [[Series/NinjaTurtlesTheNextMutation Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles]] in the fourth episode. Divatox actually conquered the original Power Chamber but never went inside (also, given that Divatox is from ''Turbo'', many people [[FanonDiscontinuity don't like to acknowledge her existence]]).

** Even in "Doomsday", when Goldar leads a troop of putties to Billy's house (to stop Billy from repairing the team's communicators), there's a point where the four Rangers back off as Goldar approaches, but Jason raises his arms and steps forward to meet the alien warrior. Even without powers, Jason was strong enough, brave enough, and confident enough, to throw down with the guy who's capable of thrashing the entire team. Even after 20 years, Jason is still my favorite Ranger, and that right there is the reason ''why''.

* The original Ultrazord sequences, PR's version of MoreDakka. When Titanus is called in, the MonsterOfTheWeek is ''screwed''. Perhaps one of the best examples is "Doomsday, Part 1". The Tyrannosaurus Dinozord and the Dragonzord in Fighting Mode are on the ropes, at the mercy of Rita's War Zord Cyclopsis after having been nailed by its shock cables. Then Titanus charges in in attack mode, blasting them free. They form the Ultrazord and blast Cyclopsis to smithereens.

** [[MonsterOfTheWeek Terror Toad]] has eaten all Rangers but Kimberly, and is being supported by Baboo. [[AttackItsWeakPoint A salvo of arrows in the neck later]], the Rangers were back. Another arrow down the throat, Terror Toad ''exploded''. And Baboo was running after getting hit by an arrow from the salvo.

** During the "Green With Evil" arc, Jason fights Goldar and then evil Tommy... unmorphed! Sure, he doesn't win, but facing those two when they were at their {{Badass}} peak and surviving? Awesome.

* Speaking of Cyclopsis: "Doomsday, Part 2". After the Megazord and Dragonzord were curbstomped ''twice'' by Cyclopsis (In the second battle, Megazord lost an arm and Dragonzord its tail), Zordon and Alpha find Cyclopsis weakness, which is [[spoiler: that it adjusts to what it fights and can't adapt to quickly changing forms]], and...let's just say that it's payback time for the rangers ''and'' the zords (this time, is Dragonzord who destroys Cyclopsis' arm blades with its tail), but still, he's like pre-power boost Cyclopsis which pwned them anyway until they do their last few transformations which [[spoiler: locks the system]].

** We get a scene of Zordon pre-imprisonement facing a horde of Putties. [[OneManArmy One against many, they were evenly matched]]... Then he grabbed the Singing Squash plant he was trying to retrieve and ''wiped them out''.

* Another moment for Kim comes in the Season Two episode ''The Song of Guitardo.'' First of all, she blasts the monster away using her Power Bow as a Harp, meaning she overcame the PowerOfRock with a HARP of all things, then uses it to launch the Dragon Dagger at the monster, resulting in a most satisfying explosion.

* Adding to Lord Zedd's general awesomeness was that he got some of the best bad guy one-liners ever. When he was telling Goldar about his plan to send the Rangers on a never-ending scavenger hunt throughout the Universe, Goldar interrupted Zedd to praise the plan. Zedd replies, "Silence, fool! I wasn't done talking about ''me'' yet!" Some days, it was really hard to ''not'' to shout "ALL HAIL ,LORD ZEDD!!", because he just did it with such style.
