Episode Summary

EDIT
Diabolico pools the remnant powers of Demonite, Falkar, and Thunderon, into the deadly Troika monster. If the Rangers can defeat that triple threat-in-one, they'll still have to face a giant-sized Diabolico! Meanwhile, Ryan decides to take his cobra-tattoo curse to the source, returning to the ancient ruins of Bansheera's temple in Egypt. There, he faces the basis of the curse, a Cobra Monster. Can he survive long enough to be cured?moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (6)

      • Just as Captain Mitchell declares Mariner Bay safe from evil forces, the alarm sounds again to signal Impus' approach, prompting a disbelieving Carter to ask "That's a drill, right?". To which the Captain replies "We don't have drills." It seems strange that an organization like Lightspeed should not have drills, especially after we have seen training routines in episodes such as "Trial by Fire".

      • When the Lightspeed Solarzord fires at Diabolico, its lasers are red. But when they hit him, they are blue.

      • Chad said the monster even stood up to the unilaser, but that was never used.

      • When Carter activates the Lightspeed Megazord, his helmet's visor is open for some reason.

      • Shouldn't the Titanium Laser have vanished when Ryan Demorphed?

      • When Diabolico grows, his staff vanishes. But when the SuperTrain Megazord is blasting him, it suddenly returns.

    • QUOTES (8)

      • Carter: You may think you've beaten us, but that couldn't be further from the truth!
        Troika: We don't THINK we've beaten you; We know it!

      • (as the Rangers defeat Troika with their Battle Boosters)
        Carter: You'd think they'd learn they can't beat the Power Rangers.

      • Diabolico: This is far from over.
        Carter: What are you going to do about it?
        Diabolico: (grows to giant size) What I should have done long ago -- destroy you myself.

      • Diabolico: (last words) You have done the impossible -- you've defeated the mighty Diabolico, but be assured that Queen Bansheera will avenge my defeat a thousandfold.

      • Captain Mitchell: I'd like to propose a toast. Here's to Mariner Bay. As of now, the safest city in the...
        (alarm sounds)
        Carter: That's a drill, right?
        Captain Mitchell: We don't have drills.

      • Queen Bansheera: Hello, Rangers!
        Ryan: I thought she was destroyed!
        Kelsey: Who IS that?
        Ryan: Queen Bansheera. She's worse than TEN Diabolicos.

      • Kelsey: I can't believe it! No more Diabolico!
        Chad: And no more of his demons!
        Dana: And best of all...
        Dana and Ryan: No more Cobra tattoo!
        (Joel whistles for their attention to Captain Mitchell)
        Captain Mitchell: Thank you, Joel.

      • Diabolico: Don't you know when to give up?
        Carter: Yeah -- never!
        Diabolico: Well, then, let me show you real power.
        (Diabolico blasts a hole thru the SuperTrain Megazord)

    • NOTES (8)

      • The scene where Miss Fairweather is talking with Ryan in the infirmary is not included in the Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue - Titanium Ranger: Curse of the Cobra VHS. Although the exact scene is not on the VHS there is a scene of Ryan in the infirmary with Dana and Ms. Fairweather on the VHS but not on the actual episode.

      • This is the first time Queen Bansheera is revealed to the Rangers, although Ryan has some knowledge of her from his growing up in Diabolico's care.

      • Battle Booster codes: 478-activation, 555-Booster Beam, and Lightspeed Solarzord formation-356.

      • The Cobra Monster is a modified and repainted version of MMPR's Snizzard from "Foul Play in the Sky".

      • Debut of the Battle Boosters.

      • Available in North America on the "Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue - Titanium Ranger: Curse of the Cobra" VHS.

      • Destruction of Diabolico, though he'll be back in "As Time Runs Out." Prior to the episode, he appears as the sixth/final boss in the Game Boy Color game Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue.

      • Debut of the Lightspeed Solarzord combination of the Lightspeed Megazord and Max Solarzord.
