Zordon is a powerful wizard and mentor to the Power Rangers franchise, appearing in the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers television series and many of its subsequent incarnations.
Although the Power Rangers had, in the continuity, predated Zordon, Zordon is generally credited with creating the first group of modern Power Rangers, as well as coining many of the phrases that are still used today. Among the most notable of these terms is the “Zord”, a term for the various building-sized mechanical or biomechanical robot machines used in the series, and the “Megazord”, a term for any arbitrary merger of Zords into a bigger, usually humanoid Zord.
A very funny power ranger parody. As you can tell from the information I gave above, Zordon is the creator of the power rangers. This parody shows how it is actually done and why the colours are assigned as such.
GO! GO! Power Rangers!
