Jason: "We need Dinozord Power Now!"
The Dinozords are the very first Zords to be used in Power Rangers history. They are all based on prehistoric creatures. In the original "Day of the Dumpster" pilot, they are referred to as "Dinodroids." It is interesting to note that, although they are referred to collectively as Dinozords, only the Tyrannosaurus and Triceratops are actual dinosaurs. The Mastodon and Saber-Toothed Tiger are mammals that are post-Cretaceous, while Pterodactyls are pterosaurs, a separate group of archosaurs from dinosaurs. To summon the Zords, the Rangers normally call out, "We Need Dinozord Power, Now!" (Though in some episodes the Rangers simply called on their Zords individually). During "The Mutiny" multi-part episodes, the Rangers collectively call upon the Tyrannosaurus Dinozord due to the freezing of the other Dinozords. The Dinozords are used to battle the forces of Rita Repulsa throughout season one. After they are upgraded into the Thunderzords in season two, the Rangers no longer use the Dinozords for battle, but every time they summon the Thunderzords, the Dinozords usually appear first and then each change into their Thunderzord counterparts. When the Thunderzords are destroyed in season three, the Dinozords are destroyed along with them, due to them being the base components for the Thunderzords.
