* Rita is sent flying into space, where she is frozen solid...but as she is being frozen, she [[GoOutWithASmile smiles]], and the smile is sinister in nature. She just ''knows'' that she will be back...[[SequelHook and most likely not alone.]]

* But for sheer brutality, the most terrifying scene comes after she incapacitates the Rangers. She [[spoiler: ties them to the side of a boat and tortures Zack to get Billy to reveal the location of the Zeo Crystal. Then, after he reveals where it is... she drops him into the water, drowning him.]] [[spoiler: He was eventually revived as we knew he would be]], but in that one moment, we knew this Rita was more brutal then we were used to.
** What makes it worse is that Rita only does it [[spoiler: to keep up appearances, almost as an afterthought. The way she walks away as the Rangers scream in terror shows you just how far she's [[FallenHero fallen from what she used to be.]]]]
-->'''Rita:''' [[spoiler: Zordon would lose all respect for me if I don't... kill you! At least one of you.]]

* Rita's attack on the jewelry store. She comes in the store looking like a hag straight out of the ''Franchise/TheEvilDead," then takes a shotgun blast from a police officer that has arrived on the scene without getting harmed. She then rises the putties for the first time and sics them on the officer who goes down screaming. It then cuts to a shot of Rita walking away from the store that is now covered in flames.

** Amongst the Blu-ray and digital version's special features, there's an extended moment during this scene that makes it even creepier when Rita actually ''licks'' Trini's chin.

She also talks to herself about not killing Trini right away, since she wants to "play" a little longer, while holding Trini up [[NeckLift by her neck]] against the wall.

Added DiffLines:

** Once they're pushed into the pit, several of the rangers start outright screaming. It is absolutely gut-wrenching, especially since they were ''just'' putting on a brave face for each other.

** At one point, Kim's Zord gets set on fire and as she tries to take off to put herself out, Goldar forces her back to the ground and crushes her wings, stopping her from getting airborne again. Made even worse by the fact that the feedback loop that their Zords give them, mean Kim is freaking out as if ''she'' is on fire, and as if ''her'' arms are being crushed.

** Before that, there's a blink and you miss it shot of Rita blocking one of the officer's shots, and the ammo ricochets and hits one of the customers in the background.

Added DiffLines:

* When Rita "wakes up" in the hold of Jason's father's ship, it looks like a scene out of an actual horror movie before mercifully cutting to black.
