Zen Aku blasts the rangers to the ground again however Cole takes out his Lion Blaster and shoots Zen Aku down. The rangers then get up and Cole explains that they are not responsible for whatever happened 3000 years ago. Taylor adds that they are only the guardians of the Wildzords. Alyssa then says that only they can use the zords and so he can't use the Elephant Zord he stole. However Zen Aku then shows them his own animal crystals (Wolf, Alligator and Hammerhead Shark), much to their surprise. Zen Aku then uses his music to awaken the Zords of the crystals.

Act IVEdit
