The Turbo Rangers' first major battle brought them up against Maligore, a monster who had been imprisoned on the island of Muranthias. He was freed by Divatox, who planned on marrying him. Maligore was destroyed by the Turbo Megazord.
He had the power to hypnotize, and fire off blasts of fire. He could also deflect the Ranger's weapon's energy blast, and enlarge himself.
- Dark Specter bears a huge resemblance to Maligore, which is even pointed out by Divatox (when he appears at the meeting of the UAE, she said he reminded her of her fiance).
