    I'm nt sure if he got hurt or anything, but i think the decision to write him out was made prior to the film. The producers wanted a kid character and they were inspired by the White Ranger in from his Sentai counter-part. But as to why it was rocky? Dunno, dun care. Never really took to him anyway.

    There wasn't time to heal Rocky. Lerigot healed Kat on the spot in the Forest then they had to turn him over to divatox shortly after getting him back to the power chamber. Not to mention that healing Kat weakened Lerigot even more than he already was from the sun and the heat. It's possible that healing Rocky would have weakened him even more.

    Turns out Steve Cardenas actually got injured and that caused the change in story.

    Maybe Rocky chose to let his back heal on its own.

    It's because Rocky wasn't part of the main storyboard. After the opening start of the film, when he got injured from fighting. He wasn't anywhere near the action or the storyboard at all.


    They based Katherine's injured on part of the storyboard & action. When Tommy & her want on that planet to find or save Lerigo. And also, Lerigo didn't just only heal Kat's leg. He also heal Kimberly & Jason's back to reality from being on Divatox's evil curse spell. That is because they based Jason & Kimberly into the main storyboard & action.


    We only got seen Rocky from the very start & very end of the film. He wasn't into the action/adventure course like his friends were. It's impossible for lerigo to heal Rocky. When he wasn't part of the main storyboard & action at all. That's means Steve Cardenas plays Rocky probably injured himself during shooting the film. And they want ahead find his replacement to played the Turbo Blue Ranger ended up being Justin by Blake Foster. It can also be Steve Cardenas pull out of Power Rangers not into the role anymore and didn't really feel like his character should continue.

    Not to mention he was seen hurt by Tommy, Kat, Tanya, Adam, Justin, the coach, and several kids. Plus hospital staff. So him healing so quickly would have raised suspicions and questions they couldn't answer.

    Rocky would just have wanted to have fun if he were to be given the Turbo powers.

    Rocky should return for the 20th anniversary special he missed forever red which means he has to be in the next special. Rocky's probably healed by now so he could be a ranger again.

    One thing I have always wanted to see was a Blue Ranger version of Forever Red. The Blue powers are the only color I can remember to only have one person per series. Rocky would be able to come back as Zeo Ranger 3.
