Power Rangers Wild Force Season 1 Summary

Season 1, Episode 1: Lionheart

In the wilderness, a young man named Cole leaves to search for his past. In the city of Turtle Cove, four Rangers are battling two powerful orgs but are outmatched. The orgs leave, and Alyssa comments on how they need a fifth Ranger, but their leader Taylor disagrees. Cole arrives in the city and tries to find the people in his photo – his parents. He saves animals from a shady shelter run by two devious clowns. Cole and the animals make it out of the shelter safely, and the animal snatchers are revealed to be the duke orgs Toxica and Jindrax. Cole wakes up in a jungle, and five robotic animals greet him – Lion, Tiger, Bison, Shark, and Eagle – the Power Animals. Cole makes his way to a temple, where he is greeted by the Rangers and their mentor, Princess Shayla. Cole shows them a red crystal with the lion in it. They surprise him by showing him their colored crystals. The Org from earlier returns to wreak more havoc in the city. Shayla dispatches the Rangers. Taylor gives Cole his Growl Phone and shows him how to morph. The Rangers are still unable to defeat the orgs. They combine their weapons into the Jungle Sword, destroying one org. Jindrax and Toxica appear. Toxica grows the other org into a giant. The wild zords come to help the Rangers and destroy the org.
