Golden Key

The Golden Key was the key to unlocking the Shadow World; Olympius originally demanded it from Jinxer, but Diabolico then stole it to seal Olympius in the Shadow World6. When Diabolico was later defeated, the key flew to the Tomb of Forever7, where Ryan found it, but Bansheera then took it8. Though Bansheera used the key to open a gateway to the Shadow World, she was ultimately sealed within as Ryan removed the key (with her inside); the key was last seen in Ryan's hand as Bansheera's castle crumbled9.

Golden Key


Ryan was Captain Mitchell's long-lost son, having been taken from Mitchell when Diabolico saved him from a car accident10. He served as the Titanium Ranger, initially under Diabolico's guidance11 but later as an ally to the Lightspeed Rangers12. After departing to research demon imprisonment13, Ryan told the Rangers of Diabolico's resurrection14, sought the help of the Sorcerer of the Sandas15, and informed the Rangers of the golden key's return16.

Most monsters listed below were summoned by the demons, generally using cards. Unless otherwise noted, normal-sized monsters exploded into chunks when they were destroyed; a growth card from Jinxer then generally reassembled them in giant form. Names marked with an asterisk were listed in end credits. Names in brackets were monster-like roles fulfilled by what were arguably non-monsters.

Lightspeed Rescue

Released by nomads, Diabolico and crew began attacking Mariner Bay, which stood in place of Bansheera's palace30. Diabolico later unleashed Ryan31; when Ryan defected after an encounter with Mitchell32, Diabolico unleashed his last three monsters and cursed Ryan in a dream33. As the Rangers eventually defeated Demonite, Falkar, and Thunderon34, Ryan's life was threatened until he defeated the cobra monster in the Tomb of Forever; the Rangers then defeated Diabolico35, whose Star Power transformed Impus into Olympius36. Her resurrection ceremony later interrupted, Bansheera was left in a pod-like form37. Vypra and Loki resurrected Diabolico38, who (temporarily) sealed Olympius in the Shadow World39. Upon absorbing Vypra, Bansheera transformed and disposed of Loki40, also sending Diabolico and Olympius to battle to their dooms41. When Bansheera then enacted her plan to open the Shadow World, Diabolico's spirit helped the Rangers seal her within42.

Time Force

Vypra later arose from the earth (where a tombstone bore her name), seeking to resurrect the super-demon Quarganon with Ransik's help; both she and Quarganon were destroyed by the Lightspeed and Time Force Rangers43.
