Epilepsy Warning 

A very small percentage of individuals may experience epileptic 
seizures when exposed to certain light patterns or flashing lights. 
Exposure to certain patterns or backgrounds on a television 
screen or while playing video games may induce an epileptic 
seizure in these individuals. Certain conditions may induce 
undetected epileptic symptoms even in persons who have no 
history of prior seizures or epilepsy. If you, or anyone in your 
family, has an epileptic condition, consult your physician prior to 
playing. If you experience any of the following symptoms 
while playing a video game — dizziness, altered vision, eye or 
muscle twitches, loss of awareness, disorientation, any invol¬ 
untary movement, or convulsions — IMMEDIATELY discon¬ 
tinue use and consult your physician before resuming play. 

Owners of Projection Televisions 

Still pictures or images may cause permanent picture-tube dam¬ 
age or mark the phosphor of the CRT. Avoid repeated or 
extended use of video games on large-screen projection TVs. 

About Audio Connectors 

I f the Audio connection is made to your television from the Sega 
CD, the Mixing Cable must be used to connect the headphone 
output jack on the front of the Genesis to the MIXING input jack 
on the rear of the Sega CD. If the Audio connection is made to 
your television from the Sega Genesis (using either the RF cable 
or a Video Monitor cable), the Mixing Cable must NOT be used.

Starting Up 

1. Set up your Sega CD and Sega Genesis™ systems by following 
the instructions in their manuals. 

2. Plug in one control pad. 

3. Turn on the TV or monitor and the Genesis. The Sega CD logo 
will appear on screen. (If nothing appears, turn the system off, 
and make sure it is set up correctly before turning it on again.) 

4. Place the Sega CD compact disc into the disc tray, label side 
up. Close the tray or CD door. 

5. If the Sega CD logo is on screen, press the Start Button on the 
control pad to begin the game. If the control panel is on 
screen, move the cursor to the CD-ROM button and press 
Button A, B or C to begin. 

6. At the Title screen, press Start to begin some of the most 
intense combat of your life! Soon you, too, will feel the wrath 
of Rita Repulsa! 


Grab the Dragonzord™ by the Horns! 

At last, after 10,000 years, evil 
intergalactic sorceress Rita 
RepuIsa™ is freed from her far- 
flung dungeon. Good for her 
. . . and BAD for everyone else! 
Now, from her castle on the 
moon, the horse-laughing 
harridan plots to control the 

Her first target is planet Earth. Using her league of horrors, she is 
out to destroy everything she can get her hands on. 

The only thing standing in her way is a brave team of teenage 
warriors. Jason, Zack, Kimberly, 

Trini and Billy have been hand¬ 
picked by Zordon™, an inter- 
dimensional being with magical 
powers that rival Rita Repulsa's. 

These energetic masters of the 
martial arts summon the power 
of the ancient dinosaurs and 
morph into the Mighty Morphin 
Power Rangers™. 

When Rita's monster henchmen become a really BIG problem, the 
Power Rangers' special vehicles, the Dinozords™, combine to 
create the powerful Megazord™. Then the battle really kicks up 
the dirt! 

But Rita has a few nasty tricks up her wicked silk sleeve. Among 
them is the Green Ranger™, a teenager she has hexed into fighting 
for the wrong side. Can the other Power Rangers defeat the Green 
Ranger and his mighty mecha, the Dragonzord, and convince him 
to change sides? They could sure use his help in the battles ahead! 

Join the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers as they punch, leap and 
spin kick their way ever deeper into Rita's clutches. Your job is to 
make all the right moves, to make sure the Power Rangers get the 
job done. And that's gonna take some fast action on your part. 

So warm up those trigger fingers. IT'S MORPHIN TIME! 


Use the control pad to play the game. When you see different 
symbols appear on the combat screen, press the same controls on 
the control pad. It's just like you're one of the Power Rangers™. 
You've gotta make the right moves to win! 

Skill Levels 

Choose one of these skill levels before you start the game. Press 
the D-Pad up/down to choose a 

level, and press the Start Button. 

Beginner Start 

An easier mode that lets you 
learn how to play. You'll have to 
make fewer moves than in the 
Intermediate and Expert Modes, 
and you will be given more time 
to react. 

Intermediate Start 

Although you are given more time to react, you are required to 
make the same number of moves as the Expert Mode. Hone those 
skills if you want to move up! 

Expert Start 

Intense combat that takes all your skill and concentration! The 
moves are faster and damage for wrong moves is more severe. 

You lose points for pressing a play control too soon. Your timing 
has to be just right in order to win!

Your Score 

in Combat 

Your Health Bar 

You'll play through nine Episodes of fast, furious Power Rangers™ 
combat. Each Episode gets more intense, as the Power Rangers 
sink deeper into danger in their battle to defeat evil Rita Repulsa™! 

When you see a symbol appear on screen, quickly press that 
Action Button or D-Pad direction. If you make the right move, 
your Health Bar will be untouched. If you make a wrong move, or 
you're not fast enough, the screen will shake, you'll hear a buzzer, 
and your Health Bar will decrease. 

Your score is based on making the right moves in the quickest 
amount of time. (See Scoring on page 7.) 

Three Ways to Move 


When one of the Power Rangers™ 
is running or dodging out of the 
way, you may see a direction 
arrow appear, moving toward 
the edge of the screen. Press the 
D-Pad in the same direction to 
make the right move. 

Single Button Press 

A specific action, such as a 
punch or swing, will call for a 
single button press. You'll see 
a button symbol appear. Press 
the same Action Button on 
the control pad to make the 
right move. 

Multi-Button Press 

When the Power Rangers are 
about to take massive damage, 
you'll need to press a number of 
buttons very quickly, in a limited 
amount of time. A bar graph 
will appear. You must rapidly 
press all three Action Buttons — 
A, B and C — to light up the 
graph before the time runs out. 



Restoring Your Health Bar 

Even the Power Rangers™ take their share of hits. When you make 
a wrong move, or don't move fast enough, your Health Bar 
decreases. But as long as you have some health left, you're still 
in the game. 

During the morphing segments in combat, your Health Bar will 
gradually increase: 

• If your Health Bar is low, you'll only have time to regain 
partial health. 

• If your Health Bar is nearly full, you'll regain full health. 

• If the Health Bar is full and you still have healing time, 
additional points will be added to your score. 

Secret Moves 

In combat, when your Health Bar starts to increase during the 
morphing sequences, you can double the health you gain back! 

If you press the correct sequence of buttons, you will gain twice 
the amount of restored health. 

Each area has its own secret move, which can be one, two or 
three button presses in a row. In each morphing stage, you will 
get a visual clue about which buttons to press. For example, in 
Episode 1, when the teens morph into Power Rangers, press the 
D-Pad UP when they jump up to gain additional health. 

Look for other visual clues during the morphing sequences to gain 
twice as much health. That spells DOUBLE TROUBLE for Rita 
Repulsa™ and her Putty Patrol™! 



Your points are tallied on the 
Score screen at the end of each 

You are scored on these items:

Perfect Health 

How much health you have left at the end 
of the Episode. 

You get a bonus score if you have a full 
Health Bar when the Episode ends. 

Perfect Combat You receive this excellent bonus score if 

you performed all the moves exactly right 
and you took no damage. 

n addition: 

• You gain points for making the correct moves. The faster you 
make the right moves, the higher your score will be. 

• If you press the wrong button, but then immediately press the 
right button, you'll still score, although not as high. 

• You lose health when you press the wrong button, or fail to 
press any button before the time runs out. 

• You earn a bonus every 50,000 points in Beginner Mode, 
75,000 points in Intermediate Mode, and 100,000 points in 
Expert Mode. Continues are awarded at the end of the episode 
in which you earned them. 



If your health bar runs out, that's 
it! Rita Repulsa™ now has a clear 
field to take over the universe, 
without the Power Rangers™ to 
get in her way. 

But. . . wait a minute. There's 
such a thing as Continues. 

When you have 'em, you can 
get back in the game from the 
start of the last scene you played. Highlight YES on the Continue 
screen and press the Start Button to resume play. 

You begin the game with no Continues. But you can earn more. 
The higher your score is, the more Continues you can rack up. 

(See Scoring on page 7.) You'll receive your additional Continue(s) 
on the Score screen at the end of each Episode. 

When you run out of both health and Continues, the game is over.
