* AdaptationSpeciesChange: His ''Kakuranger'' counterpart was a {{Tanuki}}, rather than a mole. He also was a cartoonist and not a painter (why his giant form uses an ink pen)

* MakeMyMonsterGrow: The {{Trope Namer|}}. After yelling out "Magic wand, make my monster....GROW!", she throws her wand to Earth and causes a fissure to erupt, growing her monster. In Season 3, she and Lord Zedd would cross their staffs to emit a lightning storm that causes the monsters to grow.

* AdaptationalSpeciesChange: Interesting variation; in ''Zyuranger'' he was based on a manticore with intended lion elements. In ''Power Rangers'', in the Green With Evil saga, he compares himself to a lion when tormenting Jason, not to mention his partnership in most early promotional material with King Sphinx. However, all future instances would have him compared to an ape i.e. flying monkey. The somewhat drastic alteration to the costume's head didn't help to clear things up.

** In the 'Green With Evil' story arc, they helped push the bus that Bulk and Skull were trapped in over the cliff and if the Rangers hadn't formed the Megazord in time, they might have succeeded in killing them.
** Immediately following the "Green With Evil" arc, they created a turtle monster, Shellshock, who, while bizarre looking even by PR standards, managed to give the heroes a good run for their money before Trini and Tommy saved the day.

* TheBadGuyWins: Zedd accomplished much after he married Rita, such as capturing Ninjor, nearly killing Kimberly, allowing Rita's brother Rito Revolto to destroy the Thunderzords [[spoiler: and blowing up the Machine Empire in the ''Series/PowerRangersZeo'' finale "Good as Gold"]], just to name a few exploits. In season two, he didn't win any victories against the Rangers, he flat out ''beat'' them. The three replacement Rangers and Bulk and Skull both had episodes where Zedd would have flat out won if they hadn't stumbled upon the situation by pure luck. If Goldar had used the black hole maker instead of taunting Tommy in "Green No More," would have had another opportunity to win.

* GaveUpTooSoon: Leaves, after the Aquitian Rangers defeat his monster army, basically throwing a childish tantrum, not unlike his daughter in Season 1. This was a mere two episodes after proclaiming "Master Vile is here to stay". At least Zedd and Rita's forces continued where he'd left off, destroying the ninja power coins and eventually the Command Center itself.
** Then again, if he had stuck around, he would've been at just as much risk from the Machine Empire's attack as his daughter and son-in-law's, [[HilariousInHindsight so maybe it was in his best interests.]]

* WhatAnIdiot: Not on his part but Bulk and Skull's, he thought they were his parents. They could have turned him away from evil and made him good had they not been freaked out by his appearance. Possibly gained their trust and when they powered down, Bulk and Skull have the Power Rangers' secret identities. Even if they don't see them demorph, Turkey Jerk would have and have told Bulk and Skull.

* NighInvulnerability: Neither the Rangers nor Ninjor could inflict damage at Artistmole. Any physical attacks would just phase right through him. In a twist of irony, only Kimberly could hurt him due to him being the source of her stress.

* SuperpoweredMooks: The Super Putties. Stronger and tougher than the regular Putties, with the ability to fire laser blasts out of their fingers. They were practically invincible, and if one was destroyed, it would regenerate into two more. It took a new set of weapons to finally take them down.
