Rita Repulsa

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sentai4401.jpg

Portrayed by: Machiko Soga (Zyuranger footage), Carla Perez (Season 2 and onwards), Julia Cortez (MMPR the Movie)
Voiced by: Barbara Goodson, Ada Morales (Latin American Spanish, original version), Rebeca Patiño (Latin American Spanish, remastered version)

Originally sealed in a space dumpster for 10,000 years, the evil sorceress Rita Repusla was freed after two astronauts accidentally opened it. After being freed, Rita sent her sights on conquering Earth, only to face against Zordon's Power Rangers.


  • Aborted Arc: Her initial plan in marrying Zedd was to eventually seize power and control over his sect. After the wedding, however, once Zedd starts making plans to have a child with her, she freaks and tells Finster to make an antidote for the love potion. While the antidote subplot does come back to the forefront in Season 3, her initial plan to overthrow her new husband is never brought up again, as in the whole reason she wanted to wed him in the first place. Even better, she seems to genuinely love her "Zeddy" after a while and even with the antidote in place, Zedd states that Rita is the best thing to ever happen to him.
  • Adaptation Expansion: She played a much larger role in later seasons, while Bandora and her lackeys were sealed off after the Dora Talos incident.
  • Adaptation Personality Change: Her Sentai counterpart is a genocidal Child Hater with a sympathetic backstory compared to Rita's overly petty attitude.
  • Adaptational Name Change: She's known as Witch Bandora in the original Zyuranger series.
  • Alliterative Name: Rita Repulsa.
  • Bad Boss: In contrast to her Sentai counterpart, who always averted You Have Failed Me. When the Rangers defeat the latest monster, she's prone to taking her frustration out on her underlings - even if they had absolutely nothing to do with what went wrong. Especially towards Goldar after marrying Zedd, due to Goldar switching loyalties. She appears to still treat him badly even after she comes to truly love Zedd.
  • Becoming the Mask: At first her marriage to Zedd was simply a Revenge scheme, but just like he came to love her without the potion, she came to genuinely love him back.
  • Big Bad: She is the lead villain first season, commanding all the others.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: With Zedd at the end of Season 2, more so in season 3 given that they make monsters grow together.
  • Big Good: Mystic Force reveals she eventually became the Mystic Mother, the supreme force of good for all good magic in the Power Rangers universe. Ironically, according to Word of God she also created the Mystic Force powers and connected them to the Morphing Grid, meaning she essentially becomes a successor to Zordon.
  • Catchphrase: "I have a headache!" usually after the Rangers thwart her latest scheme. It's still something she deals with as the Mystic Mother when evil invades her palace
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Rita LOVES to gloat about her evilness; especially when she comes up with a plan to defeat the Power Rangers.
  • The Chessmaster: While the 2016 comics tone down her hamminess quite a lot, they turn Rita into this, to the point that she keeps toying with Tommy's insecurities even when she's just a voice in his head (albeit one created by his own guilt over his evil deeds in her name) - and she considered having Zack as the Green Ranger by playing on his insecurities. Even if that doesn't quite work, he's still pretty shaken by her promises of turning him into a greater hero than he could be with the other Rangers, which unknowingly fuels his distrust of Tommy.
  • Composite Character: Power Rangers Mystic Force reveals that she went on to become the Mystic Mother, who was a separate character in the original Japanese series (since they were both played by Machiko Soga, the writers decided to combine the characters).
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: While Rita's a very petty villain, her plans have the potential to cause mass destruction. Particularly the Green Ranger saga.
  • Daddy's Little Villain: Rita seems eager to impress her equally-villainous father, Master Vile.
  • Enfant Terrible: Rito mentions she once burned their house down when she got a birthday present she didn't like. Said present was a dragon, rather than the planet she wanted.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: She seems to genuinely love her father and brother, and while her marriage with Zedd started as an Evil Plan, the two eventually did fall in genuine love with each other.
  • Evil Is Hammy: Practically all of her lines are delivered in a screaming screechy witch voice, resulting in her always stealing the show when on screen.
  • Evil Plan: The big one is "Conquering the nearest planet" I.E. Earth. The episodes have smaller ones focused on the Monster of the Week.
  • Evil vs. Evil: Not in the original series, but, by the time of Zeo, Rita and Zedd come into conflict with the Machine Empire. They are the ones who ultimately blow up.
  • Fake Shemp: During Rita's first encounter with Lord Zedd she was filmed from behind (with some random person in her outfit) with spliced in Zyuranger footage for her reactions.
  • Final Boss: She is the last boss fought in the Game Boy Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers game.
  • Heel–Face Turn: After being purified by the energy wave, she becomes the Mystic Mother, Empress of all good magic.
  • Make My Monster Grow: Trope Namer "Magic wand, make my monster....GROW!"
  • Meal Ticket: She only married Lord Zedd to overthrow him, but later developed feelings for him.
  • Never Live It Down: In-Universe — Living in that dumpster for 10,000 years. (see below)
    Divatox: (at the Cimmarian planet meeting) Honestly, you need to get out of that dumpster more often.
  • No Indoor Voice: She screams practically every one of her lines.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: When Zordon and Alpha summoned the teens for the first time, they didn't believe them and rejected the offer to become the Power Rangers. If Rita had heard that and not sent down her Putties under the assumption that they had become the Rangers she could've saved herself years of headache.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: She's not the type of villain to get into a direct fight with the Rangers, she sends monsters and/or plots against them instead.
  • Related in the Adaptation: Witch Bandora never even met Yokai Daimao and Gasha Dokuro, much less was related to them.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can:
    • Trope Namer. She was originally trapped in a "space dumpster" on the moon for 10,000 years until astronauts accidentally released her. Her line from the intro sequence is rather iconic:
      Ahh! After 10,000 years I'm free! It's time to conquer Earth!
    • Her boss Lord Zedd eventually returns, and displeased with her failure puts her back in her dumpster (or a different one) and sends her off into space again. She gets out twice. The first time the Rangers catch her and reseal her, the second time she stays out for good.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: It takes a grand total of three episodes for her to reach this conclusion. Her stupid minions are the cause of her headaches.
  • The Unfought: With the exception of the Game Boy Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers video game, none of the video games she's appeared in featured her as a boss.
  • Unholy Matrimony: She married fellow villain Zedd. Started out as a power ploy, but grew into something more...
  • Wicked Witch: She's a witch who uses her magic to cause trouble. In fact, she was actually based on the genuine article.

     Goldar 

Goldar

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/goldar.jpg

Portrayed by: Danny Wayne Stallcup (Season 1-2), David Waldnote  (Season 3), Kerry Casey (MMPR the Movie)
Voiced by: Kerrigan Mahan, Alejandro Mayen (Latin American Spanish, original version), Ricardo Tejedo (Latin American Spanish, remastered version), Nolan North (Power Rangers: Super Legends)

A monkey monster in gold armor, Goldar serves as Rita's, later Lord Zedd's, main general in fighting the Rangers.


  • Adaptation Personality Change: Goldar is more active in speaking here than his Sentai counterpart, especially from Season 2 onwards.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: Goldar was not as loyal as his Sentai counterpart, Grifforzer. It was shown when Lord Zedd appears.
  • Adaptational Species Change: 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.
  • Adaptational Wimp: While it's averted in the first season, this is justified in the following two seasons, since the Gorma Tribe and the Youkai Army Corps are the main villains of Dairanger and Kakuranger respectively. Played straight later in Zeo, where he and Rito ended up being Bulk and Skull's "butlers" as a result of memory loss.
  • Bling of War: As his name suggests, he appears as an ape-like being with golden armor.
  • Death by Adaptation: In the Fighting Edition video game, he dies. This didn't happen in the series. In fact, just about any video game appearance he makes has him get blown up like any other monster.
  • Dirty Coward: Had Megazord on the ropes in their first battle, until the Power Sword was summoned at which point he turned tail.
  • The Dog Bites Back: Throughout Season 1, Goldar was Rita's most loyal sycophant despite her constant verbal and physical abuse of him. Lord Zedd's taking over in Season 2 changed that. Now, given Zedd's The Man Behind the Man status, Goldar expressing loyalty to him made sense. However, Goldar also proceeded to mock Rita to her face, claimed that he had always criticized her for her failures (though he may have meant "I've told myself that.") and took great pleasure in her dumpster exile. When she came back and married Zedd, he was still noticeably terse towards her.
  • The Dragon: Rita's most powerful minion and the one who goes out fighting.
  • Dumb Muscle: He became this over time, see Took a Level in Dumbass for more.
  • Forgot Flanders Could Do That: After having become a joke in Season 2 and 3 to wherein one battle, the White Ranger even feels sorry for him, he delivers a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown to Ninjor who effortlessly took out Vampyrus in his debut episode. Thus, he reminds us of the proud warrior he was in Season 1 and reverses a season and a half of Badass Decay with that one battle.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: During Season 3 and more so in Season 2. At least Season 3 gave him the benefit of some victories (such as beating down Ninjor, which helped lead to his capture). Season 2 saw him routinely defeated in battle, even once by an unmorphed, powerless Tommy.
  • Mook Lieutenant: He often leads Putties(and later, Tengas) into battle against the Rangers.
  • The Rival: To Jason, and later Tommy.
  • Those Two Bad Guys: With Rito; they bicker and such.
  • Took a Level in Dumbass: From Season 2 onwards, which is jarring if you're more familiar with his Season 1 persona.
    • Seriously, late in Season 1, he took the forefront of conceiving several plans himself (even if most of them weren't as thought-out as Rita's) and throughout most of the season delivered exposition on various things. Come Season 2, it was like he couldn't think over anything complex without Zedd having to spell it out for him, especially in the episodes leading up to Rita's return. By Zeo his brain cells had degenerated to the point that he was only an iota smarter than Rito.
  • Villain Decay: He was hit here hard. In early episodes, he was a nightmarish opponent. But once he lost the element of surprise and they got accustomed to him, he slowly lost his edge. Jason handed him his first true defeat, and then Tommy handed him another. Around the time of Rita and Zedd's wedding, he had become little more of a joke and a parody of himself.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: He wasn't shown being purified or turned to dust by Zordon's wave in the Grand Finale for In Space, so his fate is up in the air. Most fans seem to concur that it was the latter, however.
  • Winged Humanoid: Although he lost his wings for an unexplained reason, his true form is a winged ape. Zedd gives them back when he arrives. He never actually used them to fly in the regular series (but did so once in the movie). He loses them again in the first half of Zeo but regains them after Zedd makes him swear to never partake in anything good again.

     Squatt and Baboo 

Squatt and Baboo

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tumblr_inline_oaua6uojqe1qd7trb_540_1.jpg

Portrayed by: Minoru Watanabe (Squatt) and Hideaki Kusaka (Baboo) (Zyuranger footage), Sharon Fine (Squatt) and Jason Ybarra, Kim Henderson (Baboo) (American footage)
Voiced by: Michael Sorich (Squatt) and Colin Phillips (Baboo), Alejandro Villeli and Bardo Miranda (Squatt, Latin American Spanish, original version), Bardo Miranda (Baboo, Latin American Spanish original version), Alfonso Obregón Inclán (Squatt, Latin American Spanish original version), Octavio Rojas (Baboo, Latin American Spanish remastered version)

A pair of troll and vampire monsters.


  • Adaptation Species Change: Baboo's Sentai counterpart, Tottpat, was a vampire. During "The Wedding", Baboo refers to himself as a "monkey". In Squatt/Bookback's case, the former is half warthog, half-blueberry (the latter being referenced numerous times in-series) while the latter is a hobgoblin.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Baboo straight-up vanishes after the villains flee the moon in the Zeo premiere. Squatt and Finster are gone for most of Zeo as well (though Finster eventually returned by himself there), but they reappear for the final battle in Space, still sans Baboo.
    • Both of them are non-existent in the movie and are replaced by a monocle-wearing pig named Mordant.
  • Demoted to Extra: Starting in the second season other than releasing Zedd’s sleep ball on Angel Grove in "The Power Transfer" they do absolutely nothing but cower in fear at Zedd. They get a bit more to do in Season 3, but even then it's not by much compared to the first season, as Rito and Goldar had pretty much eclipsed them in prominence as the bumbling duo.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Bulk and Skull, to the limited extent that one pair is evil and the other is good. Lampshaded by Rita the first time she saw Bulk and Skull:
    "Great. A human Squat and Baboo."
  • Giggling Villain: Squatt most of the time.
  • Minion with an F in Evil: In terms of outright evilness, they're not much good. Or even good at anything, outside a few early occasions. At one point, Squatt even declares a desire to take part in Halloween.
  • Non-Action Guy: They're usually just there to cheer on Goldar, the Monster of the Week, and the putties while they fight the rangers rather than get involved in conflict themselves. Baboo did once help out the Terror Toad against Kimberly, but it didn't last long. Squatt was usually sent down on his lonesome to act as a spy and saboteur but usually retreated once his job was finished, indicating a lack of fighting prowess.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain:
    • In "Power Ranger Punks", Baboo created a "punk potion" that turned Billy and Kimberly into delinquent thugs (and would have done the same to the others if the drink tray hadn't been knocked over by them).
    • 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.
  • Obsessed with Food: Both of them, but mostly Squatt. When Goldar specifically tells him that the magical eggs they're after aren't the type you eat, he wonders why eggs are any good if you can't eat them.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: Squatt is pretty excitable when Rita is making a plan and seems a little too eager to see Rita rule the world. Baboo has shades of it too, though not to the same extreme.
  • Team Chef: Cooking seems to be one thing Baboo can do competently, even though he uses some unorthodox ingredients. (He cooks for other monsters, of course.)
  • The Scapegoat: Out of all of Rita and Zedd’s minions, Rita herself blames most of her failures on them, even when they have little to no responsibility for their dismay. Baboo's character bio specifically tells that this trope is the only reason why Rita keeps the latter around.
  • Those Two Bad Guys: They're a pair of lackeys seldom seen apart.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Oftentimes they messed up simple errands due to their own incompetence. For instance, when Rita tells them to get an invisibility formula from Trini's uncle, they find an unlabeled bottle and drink from it, something even most children know enough not to do. Fortunately for them, it only made them sick.
  • Vile Villain, Laughable Lackey: These two were bumbling villains compared to Rita and Zedd.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Squatt was briefly seen during "Countdown to Destruction", but we never see what happened to him.
    • He was seen very briefly behind Zedd just before the latter's purification and was gone when the wave finished passing, so...

     Finster 

Finster

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/4302423finste1.jpg

Portrayed by: Takako Iiboshi (Zyuranger footage)
Voiced by: Robert Axelrod, Herman López (Latin American Spanish)

A wizard that helps Rita by creating the monsters for Season 1, and some of Season 3.


  • Adaptational Nice Guy: While still a bad guy, unlike his Zyuranger counterpart Pleprechaun, Finster never acts rude towards Rita, especially while finishing on sculpting monsters. He always tries to appease his empress and hates failing her.
  • Affably Evil: Polite to Rita despite abuse and seems more concerned with doing a good job than doing harm. Heck, at one point he actually says out loud that being a bad guy can be no fun at times.
  • Alchemy Is Magic: "Alchemist" is the official title most sources give him, although he uses spellbooks and odd devices, putting clay models through a kiln-like contraption to turn them into monsters.
  • The Bus Came Back: Starting with Zedd and Rita's wedding, he was back in business.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Is nowhere to be found in the movie, along with Squatt and Baboo.
  • Evil Genius: Almost every Monster of the Week in the first season is personally molded by him.
  • Loyal to the Position: While mostly loyal to Rita, he'll do whatever almost any of the villains tell him to, including Zedd, Master Vile, and Goldar. He only draws the line with Rito.
  • Mad Artist: Most of the monsters and Putties are clay dolls given life.
  • Non-Action Guy: He rarely ever leaves the palace, and one time where he does go to Earth, he turns himself invisible to avoid detection. It can be assumed he has no fighting skills.
  • Put on a Bus: He was largely absent during season two, mostly because Zedd created his own monster and thus no longer needed him, which is part of why he was so quick to help Rita.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Rita. Whereas everyone else betrayed her for Zedd, he was legitimately loyal to her and glad to help her turn Zedd into her brainwashed husband.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Did he survive Zordon's energy wave? According to the graphic novel Soul of the Dragon, he not only survived but was purified and became an ally of the Rangers.

     Scorpina 

Scorpina

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/8081868.jpg

Portrayed by: Ami Kawai (Zyuranger footage), Sabrina Lu (Season 2)
Voiced by: Wendee Lee, Mónica Manjarrez (Latin American Spanish, original version), Analís Sánchez and Karina Altamirano (Latin American Spanish, remastered version)

One of Rita's most powerful warriors. Scorpina is a human/scorpion themed monster that joined Riat during the Green of Evil saga.


  • Ambiguously Human: She certainly looks like a human woman, but when Rita uses her magic to make her grow, she becomes a grotesque scorpion monster. We never get clarification if the monster is her true form or just a transformation she takes on.
  • Bling of War: Like Goldar, Scorpina is dressed in a suit of golden armor.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: After her lone appearance in "Goldar's Vice-Versa" during Season 2, Scorpina was never seen again. The filming of MMPR the Movie went over and several other episodes with her had to be scrapped to get the TV schedule back on track. Besides that, the creators decided along with Rita's return to the series that they were going to take the villains in a more comedic direction, and Sabrina Lu was never contacted for future appearances.note 
    • She later returns in the graphic novel Soul of the Dragon, having been banished to Lokar's dimension as punishment for betraying Rita Repulsa. By the end of the story, she gets killed by Lokar for failure.
  • Dark Action Girl: Very much evil, and could go toe to toe with all five Rangers.
  • Demoted to Extra: Compared to Lamie, Scorpina wasn't written with that much to her besides being a Dark Action Girl. Her relationship with Goldar was removed, most of the face footage of her going at with the heroes was unusable, and when they tried to get her back in the middle of Season 2, they decided to quietly drop her and eventually was replaced by Rito in the third season.
  • Face of an Angel, Mind of a Demon: She looks and acts rather sweet when not in a combat situation, but when she is, look out. She's as ruthless and sadistic as Goldar, and Baboo claims she has just as violent a past.
  • Flat Character: Compared to Goldar and the others, she doesn't have much of an established personality. Suffering from being regulated to the background in most episodes didn't help matters.
  • Homing Projectile: Her 'Sting' in her human form was an energy ball that bounced off one Ranger to hit another.
  • Minion Shipping: Small example, as she flirted with Goldar now and then, but little ever resulted. This is because their counterparts were married in Zyuranger.
  • One-Winged Angel: One of the first in Rangers, and definitely one of the most memorable, going from a pretty Asian woman to a grotesque scorpion creature, although it seems she can only assume monstrous form while giant-sized.
  • Scary Scorpions: She is named Scorpina for a reason, as she is based on scorpions. This becomes more apparent after transforming into the form of a huge scorpion creature.
  • The Vamp: G-rated example; she plans to ambush Adam involves some flirting and a feigned crush.

     Lord Zedd 

Lord Zedd

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zedd.jpg

Portrayed by: Ed Neil (TV series), Mark Ginther (MMPR the Movie)
Voiced by: Robert Axelrod, Eduardo Borja (Latin American Spanish), Steve Blum (Power Rangers: Super Legends), Tony Oliver (Power Rangers Super Megaforce Nintendo 3DS game)

After Rita failed to defeat the Ranger's multiple times, Lord Zedd came to the Moon Palace and sealed her in a dumpster again in retribution. After, he took over the Space Aliens as the main leader, and focused on succeeding in what Rita failed.


  • Ambiguously Jewish: ...No, really. Rewatch "The Wedding" and see Zedd get his groove on to that old Jewish wedding standby "Hava Nagila".
  • Bad Boss: In the beginning of his tenure as Big Bad, he frequently insults his minions and blames them when a plan goes wrong, despite them not even taking part in said plan. After Executive Meddling made him much milder, he also tones down in insulting and blaming his minions and becomes a Benevolent Boss. He even goes as far as to save an amnesiac Rito and Goldar from being Bulk and Skull's slaves.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: Zedd accomplished much after he married Rita, such as capturing Ninjor, nearly killing Kimberly, allowing Rita's brother Rito Revolto to destroy the Thunderzords and blowing up the Machine Empire in the Power Rangers Zeo 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.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Whenever Rito would call Lord Zedd "Ed"... it just wouldn't end well. At all. Then again, Rito was just a walking Berserk Button for all the other villains.
    • Alpha 5 does this as well when Zedd invades the Command Center in "Changing of the Zords, Part 2":
      Lord Zedd: Oh, Alpha, you can come out of hiding.
      Alpha 5: [trembling] I don't like you... Ed!
      Lord Zedd: IT'S ZEDD, YOU BLINKING BUCKET OF BOLTS! LORD ZEDD!
    • He also hates his rival Count Dregon. Even mentioning his name riles him up.
      Lord Zedd: I hate him! I despise him! He's too evil for his own good!
    • He also hates it every time the Serpentera is out of power. He doesn't even want to hear anyone say it either.
    Goldar: We must recharge, master.
    Lord Zedd: Don't even say it! I hereby proclaim: no more using the word "recharge", ever again! Grr!
  • Big Bad: He is the leading villain of the second season and much of the third season, taking over from Rita. He continued being a Bad in Power Rangers Zeo, but not the Big one. The Big Bad in Zeo is King Mondo.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: With Rita post-marriage, although Zedd is still seen as the one in charge.
  • Bizarre Alien Senses: He can view things on Earth's surface, or even across the galaxy, using telescopic vision.
  • Body Horror: He has no skin, his brain is exposed, and who knows what's behind that faceplate?
  • Breath Weapon: Not him personally, but his Zord Serpentera has some kind of lightning breath that blows up an entire planet.
  • Brought to You by the Letter "S": He's big on the "Z" theming, from his Putties to his staff and even his head crest.
  • But Not Too Evil: It is known among fans that Moral Guardians started complaining about him being too scary, forcing the showrunners to tone down his menacing attitude.
  • Canon Foreigner: He has no Sentai counterpart.
  • Character Development: When he was introduced, he was firmly focused on conquering the Earth and abused his minions. After marrying Rita, his focus shifted to screwing with the Rangers’ lives, and he developed more dynamic relationships with his underlings.
  • Composite Character: As with Dai Satan in regards to Bandora, he's Rita's boss and he takes Emperor Gorma XV's role as leader of the Dairanger monsters.
  • Dark Lord on Life Support: Possibly. He has some kind of liquid flowing through those tubes across his body, but what connection, if any, it has to his health, is never precisely made clear.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He can dole out some withering put-downs when the situation calls for it.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Lots of villains make their appearance by sitting in a chair and dramatically swiveling around to face the camera. Only Lord Zedd teleports into Rita's throne room already sitting on a throne of his own...before dramatically swiveling around to face the camera. The skinless flesh, the fluid flowing through the tubes around his body, and the sinister close-up of a python slithering across his flesh is all you need to immediately know that this is a very different kind of Power Rangers villain.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: While originally he married Rita due to a Love Potion, he did eventually fall in love with her genuinely to the point the spell being broken changed nothing. He could be surprisingly sweet to her at times.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: Some of his schemes involved trying to pit the Rangers against each other or trying to break their spirit by endangering others. His efforts only had the exact opposite effect, which always stunned him.
    "I don't understand it. The more I divide them, the more they come together."
  • Evil Overlord: "I am Lord Zedd, emperor of all I see."
  • Evil Plan: When he first set up shop, his first multi-episode objective was to finish off the Green Ranger. Then he went to conquering the planet and wiping out the others.
  • Evil vs. Evil: Not in the original series. In Zeo, however, Zedd and Rita return midway through the season and start competing with the Machine Empire for the right to conquer Earth. In the very end, Zedd and Rita are the ones who get the last laugh on the Machine Empire by blowing them to bits.
  • Faux Affably Evil: When first introduced, he falls under this trope, being capable of feigning polite manners and a reasonable attitude, but quickly showing himself for the savage, ruthless, power-hungry individual that he really is.
  • Final Boss: He is the final boss faced in the console versions of Power Rangers: Super Legends as well as the Nintendo 3DS Power Rangers Super Megaforce game.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: In the first season, being Rita's superior but too distant to be actively involved in the plot.
  • Heel–Face Revolving Door: The console versions of Power Rangers: Super Legends reveal that his purification in Power Rangers in Space didn't stick, although it's worth noting that the canonical status of said game is very questionable.
  • Heel–Face Turn: After being purified by the energy wave in Power Rangers in Space, he becomes good.
  • Hidden Depths: He genuinely fell in love with Rita, and ended up becoming quite chummy with Goldar. Zedd might be a world-conquering maniac, but he’s quite capable of healthy relationships.
  • Iconic Sequel Character: Lord Zedd is such an iconic character in the Zordon Era that people who didn't see Power Rangers growing up will be surprised he didn't appear until season 2.
  • Jaded Washout: From "The Wedding" onwards, he acts like less sinister Evil Overlord and more a frustrated married guy, but in terms of results, he becomes more effective.
  • Knight of Cerebus: His first appearance makes him this trope, as he effortlessly gets rid of Rita, is built up by Zordon as a genuine threat, causing him to give the Rangers new Zords and acts much more menacing than the whiny Rita. He flat-out beats the group several times and was only stopped by luck, used much more powerful monsters, had plans that pushed the Rangers to their limits,(seriously they won by the skin of their teeth a lot in season 2) used mind control, attacked the rangers on a personal level and tried to break their team, had plans that were pure Nightmare Fuel like locking Tommy in a graveyard dimension to fight a never-ending supply of monsters, had a country-sized zord, and BLEW UP A FREAKIN PLANET.
  • Laughably Evil: As a result of parental complaints, he was retooled to be a more light-hearted character, something that notably began when he got married to Rita Repulsa.
  • Make My Monster Grow: In Season 2, Zedd would summon a grenade and toss it towards the monster allowing it to grow. Sometimes, the monster would grab the grenade and slam it to the ground in order to properly activate it.
  • The Man Behind the Man: At the start of Season 2, it was revealed that Rita answered to Lord Zedd and was charged with conquering Earth for him. Her failure led to him taking a more direct role.
  • More Than Mind Control: While he was under a love potion when he married Rita, by the time it's broken, he's legitimately fallen in love with her.
  • Never My Fault: Done in spectacular fashion after his first defeat.
    Goldar: I'm sorry you failed, master.
    Lord Zedd: I didn't fail, you simpering twit!! You failed! You all failed! Just like you all failed before!
  • Orcus on His Throne: This trope goes for any Ranger Big Bad, really, but it becomes really evident when (as noted above) Zedd effortlessly clobbers Tommy.
  • Original Generation: Zedd has no Sentai counterpart; he was an entirely American concept to help spruce up the show in the second season. It worked.
  • SNK Boss: In Power Rangers: Fighting Edition he is this, especially on higher difficulties. Zedd has hard hitting attacks, can zone you like crazy with his magnet hand and lightning strikes and teleport out of combos.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Zigzagged. On the one hand, his retool into Laughably Evil really hit his direct effectiveness hardnote  and he came up with some plans that were notoriously silly — like the time he created a monster charged with turning Tommy into a gluttonous junk food addict. But on the other hand, he also still won many times even after getting married to Rita, with long-term consequences that played out even as late as Zeo. He destroyed the Thunderzords and damaged the Dinozord powerset beyond practical use for seven years, stole the Crane Coin and Falconzord, was allowed into the Command Center, handed Tommy his ass before retreating after a forced stalemate, destroyed the Ninja Coins, then later used subterfuge to undermine the Machine Empire twice, the latter forcing them to abandon conquering independent of the United Alliance of Evil.
  • The Unfought: In all the video games he's appeared in, the only ones where the player gets to face him in a boss fight are the Game Boy and Sega Genesis versions of the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers: The Movie game, Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers: The Fighting Edition, Power Rangers: Super Legends, the Power Rangers Super Megaforce 3DS game, and Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers: Mega Battle.
  • Unholy Matrimony: With Rita; it was part of a ploy to make him seem less evil by the producers. In-Universe, she triggered it by feeding him some Love Potion, but Goldar eventually gave Zedd an antidote — only for Zedd to reveal that he had fallen in genuine love with Rita after spending so much time with her! In fact, Zedd can be surprisingly saccharine in expressing his feelings for Rita, and she ultimately comes to love him back.
  • Villainous Friendship: He eventually grew quite chummy with Goldar, even kissing him on the forehead at one point.

    Rito Revolto 

Rito Revolto

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/1854037669_small_7.jpg

Portrayed by: Danny Wayne Stallcup
Voiced by: Bob Papenbrook, Mario Raúl López (Latin American Spanish)

A skeleton themed warrior, and Rita's brother. He came in Season 3 to help his sister and brother-in-law.


  • Adaptational Comic Relief: Gasha Dokuro is portrayed in Kakuranger as a sadistic Omnicidal Maniac with a penchant for rock music. Here, he's the Affably Evil Butt-Monkey and Dumb Muscle of season 3.
  • Adaptational Dumbass: His Sentai counterpart is not as stupid as Rito is.
  • Adaptational Wimp: In Zeo, the amnesia he and Goldar suffered ended with them working for Bulk and Skull as "butlers".
  • Affably Evil: He's dim, but friendly with the other villains. He even gave Goldar a Christmas present at one point. He even likes Zedd even though he never met him beforehand. Knowing he's his brother-in-law now was enough for him to like the guy.
  • Alliterative Name: Like his sister Rita in that regard.
  • Ascended Extra: His Kakuranger counterpart was no slouch, but Rito had a far larger role that spanned two whole seasons.
  • Body Paint: The left-hand side of his body is camo-painted.
  • The Brute: Is very stupid, but also very strong, being at least as powerful as Goldar. Therefore, he gets sent out to do most of the dirty work.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Was last seen at the very end of Zeo and never returned. Real Life Writes the Plot, as his suit fell into disrepair and reportedly had to be patched up more than once during Zeo. note 
  • Cool Helmet: He wears an old-school American Army helmet painted in a Two-Faced motif; half-bleached bones, half-jungle camo.
  • Cool Sword: He wields a sword with a skeleton motif to it.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: He's as powerful as Goldar despite his dim-witted persona.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Wizard for a Day", when he took over when Zedd and Rita wanted to take a break. (Most of it was their way of saying, "Let's see you do better!" and they proved their point.)
  • Dem Bones: He looks like a skeleton with elements of a modern soldier.
  • Dumb Muscle: Is one of the dumbest villains in Rita and Zedd's gang, but still packs quite a punch. In fact, he managed to destroy the Thunderzords during his first appearance.
  • Fire-Breathing Weapon: Also in his arsenal is a flamethrower. Looks cool, but didn't help him against the Ninja Megazord.
  • Iron Butt Monkey: He was tough enough to survive the Megazord's finishing blow (in the American version), not that he was ever keen on trying again.
  • Jetpack: "So, you wanna take to the sky, do ya? I can do that." (Just not very well, as they knocked him out of the sky in one punch.)
  • Laughably Evil: Most of the evil things he does other than defeating the Thunder Megazord fall under this. For instance, he manages to place Master Vile's Orb of Doom in the right spot entirely due to dumb luck.
  • No Sense of Direction: Is incapable of finding his way out of Rita's throne room, and has to turn around and ask for directions.
  • The Pig Pen: Notes that he 'got a shower last month' and cleans his teeth once a year. He also stinks very bad.
  • Related in the Adaptation: Yokai Daimao and Gasha Dokuro never even met Witch Bandora, much less are her family.
  • Running Gag: His habit of referring to Zedd as "Ed", along with the fits Zedd threw as a result.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: His Kakuranger counterpart did not survive his fight with the Ninja Megazord.
  • The Thing That Would Not Leave: He showed up to give Rita and Zedd a wedding present, and then just stuck around, much to their constant annoyance.
  • Those Two Bad Guys: He forms a bickering-less-bad-guy role with Goldar when he arrives.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Often. Rito feels the best way to shut off a bomb is to hit it with a hammer, and that's just the top of the list.
  • Uncleanliness Is Next to Ungodliness: He's known to have incredibly foul body odor, so much that he even was able to shock Bulk and Skull awake with it in one episode. Exactly how a skeletal warrior like him with no skin and thus no sweat glands can attain such a stink is best left unexplained.
  • Undying Loyalty: For all his faults Rito's loyalty to his big sister Rita is without question.
  • The Worf Effect: He did manage to defeat the Thunder Megazord (with help) but that was the only thing he did right; he was quickly worfed himself by the Ninjazord. This demonstrates how much of an upgrade the latter is to the form.

    Master Vile 

Master Vile

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mmpr_master_vile.jpg

Voiced by: Simon Prescott, Mario Sauret (Latin American Spanish)

Rita and Rito's father, Master Vile came from the conquered M51 Galaxy to locate the Zeo Crysta.


  • Adaptational Nice Guy: While Vile is still a Dirty Coward like his Sentai counterpart, he at least tried to be a good dad to Rita despite acting like a dick to her. Plus he ‘’did’’ take her in after the Machine Empire drove her and Zedd from the moon.
  • Arc Villain: He becomes the lead villain at the end of the third season, but not a full season.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: Apparently the case in his own galaxy, as he states before running off that he's going back home, where the bad guys can WIN.
  • Cerebus Syndrome: When he arrives, the skies darken briefly and the episodes he's in are much more serious.
  • Demoted to Extra: He only appeared in seven episodes (with two cameos in later seasons). His Kakuranger counterpart had a more sizable role.
  • Dirty Coward: Is notable for being the first villain in Power Rangers to actually give up and flee after things don't go his way.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He views Rita as an ungrateful and rotten little brat but he still genuinely loves his daughter.
  • Eviler Than Thou: During his tenure, he often tried to demonstrate he was a better villain than Zed, although that could just be antagonistic father-in-law stuff.
  • Gave Up Too Soon: Leaves, after the Aquitian Rangers defeat several monsters, 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.
  • Knight of Cerebus: After Lord Zedd was toned down late in season 2, Master Vile fulfills the role that Zedd had in much of season 2.
  • Large Ham: He’s Rita’s father alright. It's easy to see where she got her dramatic flair from.
  • Rage Quit: Throws a tantrum and leaves in a blind rage after his final monster is destroyed.
  • Related in the Adaptation: Yokai Daimao and Gasha Dokuro never even met Witch Bandora, much less are her family.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: At the end of "Alien Rangers of Aquitar", after the Aquitian Rangers defeat his latest monster, Vile decides to head back to his own galaxy, much to Zedd's delight.
  • Unrelated in the Adaptation: Yama-uba was Daimaou's sister in Kakuranger, but Dischordia is merely an ally of Vile's, much like how Lokar was to Rita with their Sentai counterparts (Lokar's was Rita's superior).
  • Villainous Breakdown: After the Alien Rangers defeat his latest monster, he throws a tantrum and basically just leaves in a blind rage.

     Hydro Hog 

Hydro Hog

Voiced by: Brad Orchard

The main enemy of the Aquitian Rangers who was summoned by Lord Zedd to evaporate all of the Earth's water supply.


  • Arch-Enemy: Hydro Hog serves as this to the Aquitian Rangers, being their personal Big Bad and a direct threat to them as he can drain water directly from their bodies.
  • Ascended Extra: Hydro Hog's Sentai counterpart was a minor Monster of the Week as oppose to being a Big Bad to a group of Rangers.
  • The Heavy: Hydro Hog is summoned to help Zedd and Rita destroy the Rangers in the final three episodes while Golder and Rita attempt to steal the Zeo Crystal.
  • Killed Off for Real: Though a minor villain, he was still the first in the franchise to be directly killed off by the Rangers.
  • No-Sell: He manages to block the Shogun Megazord's Fire Saber Finisher fairly easily and counterattack. Although the same couldn't be said for the Shogun Megafalconzord's finisher.
  • Villain of Another Story: Hydro Hog serves as the Big Bad to the Aquitian Rangers before being summoned by Rita and Zedd to help them defeat the Rangers on Earth.
  • Villain Team-Up: Zedd and Rita recruit him from Aquitar to help them destroy his Arch-Enemies the Aquitian Rangers.

     Ivan Ooze 

Ivan Ooze

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/5230075_8746647078_ivano.jpg

Portrayed by: Paul Freeman, Álvaro Tarcico (Latin American Spanish)

  • Adult Fear: While adults are actually the targets here, one has to shudder a little at the thought of a villain so easily convincing kids to accept something from a stranger, something parents tend to warn them about.
    • In brainwashing the parents into a forced neglectfulness, he also sets the kids loose to do whatever they want but forced to fend for themselves, which would realistically get extremely dangerous.
  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: He mentions several horrific things he missed out while he was imprisoned: "The Black Plague! The Spanish Inquisition! The Brady Bunch Reunion!" That last one was a Throw It In! by the actor that everyone working on the project loved.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: He's a bit of a goofball and loves to make jokes while speaking in weird voices, but he came dangerously close to wiping out an entire city's adult population and then destroying the planet.
  • Big Bad: He is the leading villain of the first movie, after shoving Zed and Rita aside and taking over.
  • Blob Monster: Ivan Ooze and his servants are made of purple goo.
  • Canon Foreigner: Has no Sentai counterpart. He also only exists in Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers: The Movie continuity.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: His Large Ham introduction to the Rangers says it all:
    "I am the galactically feared, globally reviled, universally despised... They call me Ivan Ooze!"
  • Child Hater: He doesn't really care for teenagers, and mocks Zordon for using "a bunch of kids" to fight for him.
    "A teenager with a big mouth. Not much has changed in six thousand years."
  • Deadpan Snarker: This exchange in particular:
    Tommy: We're the Power Rangers!
    Ivan: Whooo! Where's my autograph book?!
  • The Dreaded: His introduction to the Rangers says it all; "galactically feared" and all.
  • Dug Too Deep: The Egg he was sealed in was unearthed by a construction crew.
  • Evil Is Not a Toy: As Zedd finds out, Ivan is not content to be someone's servant. It gets him trapped in a snow globe.
  • Evil Old Folks: Despite being a shape-shifter who can be anyone he wants, Ivan's preferred form has the wrinkled face and cackling voice of an old man.
  • Eviler Than Thou: After destroying the Commander Center, he announces that he's taking over Rita and Zedd's operation. When they disagree, he shrinks them and traps them in a snow-globe.
  • Faux Affably Evil: His politeness is a mask to hide his villainous personality.
  • Filler Villain: He existed solely for the purpose of giving the Non-Serial Movie an original Big Bad.
  • Final Boss: He's this in every videogame featuring him.
  • The Genie Knows Jack Nicholson: Though he's been imprisoned since pre-history, he seems to be aware of the Brady Bunch.
  • Incoming Ham: "Ladies and gentlemen! The Oooooze is BACK!"
  • Instrument of Murder: He uses a lightning-shooting flute to wreck the Command Center.
  • Large Ham: He is probably one of the most deliciously hammy villains the series has had; he takes on a persona and he plays Evil Is Hammy for all it's worth. It's clear Paul Freeman had a blast playing him.
    "From this moment forth the world as you know it as shall cease to exist! WELCOME TO MY NIGHTMARE!" (Beam away in purple light)
  • Laughably Evil: See Deadpan Snarker.
  • No-Sell: Lord Zedd launched a lethal magic attack at Ivan upon being usurped and all it did was tickle him, and even that could have just been an act.
  • The Nose Knows: He realizes the Rangers are coming because he smells teenagers - he doesn't like said odor much.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: His slime-based form and powers are dismissed by Rita and Kimberly as disgusting and less-than-impressive, and Zedd's intentions for him are to be another Monster of the Week lackey, but by the end of the first half of the movie, he's overthrown everyone and sent the show's formula and status quo straight to hell.
  • Original Generation: He exists only in the movie, which is considered non-canon.
  • Pop-Cultured Badass: He's a fan of The Brady Bunch and notes the Brady Bunch reunion as among the things he missed out on while imprisoned.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Has purple skin and is able to usurp Rita and Zedd's forces with ridiculous ease.
  • Psychic-Assisted Suicide: He takes control of the minds of Angel Grove's adults, who are then commanded to "leap to their doom" into a massive hole on a construction site. The kid of the movie Fred rally the kids and Bulk and Skull to save the adults as the Rangers battle Ooze, with one of the kids holding them back with a water cannon, but it's not until Ooze's demise that his spell is broken and the adults are returned to normal.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: He had been trapped underground for 6,000 years until his containment chamber was accidentally unearthed by a construction crew and later opened by Lord Zedd.
  • Snake Oil Salesman: He doesn't sell his ooze to kids, he gives it away for free; still, he does so in the Medicine Show routine that members of the trope are famous for.
  • SNK Boss: In Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Fighting Edition for the SNES. He can float around, meaning he's immune to low attacks, all of his normal moves are projectiles, such as energy spheres and pillars of light which he can spam to keep you at bay; he's also immune to throws, and has an invulnerable strike that grants him immunity to everything for a brief instant, and then throws a barrage of energy spheres at you; and he likes to abuse this move to escape combos, and compensate for not being able to block.
  • The Starscream: Was released by Rita and Zedd to fill the role of his latest monster. Instead, he betrays the evil duo by imprisoning them into a snowing globe and taking over command over the villains.
  • Villain Override: He merges with Hornitor after Scorpitron is destroyed.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: He first encounters the Rangers while morphed into a cop.

     Lokar the Terrible 

Lokar the Terrible

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lokar.jpg

Portrayed by: Masahiko Urano
Voiced by: Robert Axelrod

A mysterious evil intergalactic wizard that would help Rita out from time to time.


  • Breath Weapon: His Breath of Doom.
  • Bowdlerization: His Sentai counterpart was LITERALLY SATAN HIMSELF. That definitely wouldn't fly on American television, then or now.
  • Decomposite Character: His Sentai counterpart's role as Bandora/Rita's master went to Lord Zedd.
  • Demoted to Extra: Kind of. He had a minor role in Zyuranger too, but he was Bandora's (Rita's Sentai counterpart) master. Here his relation to Rita isn't as quite defined but he appears to more of an ally of hers instead of a servant.
  • Eldritch Abomination: He appears as a giant face in the sky that has power beyond that of any clay monster. Tellingly, his Zyuranger analog was the Devil.
  • Enigmatic Minion: Rita refers to him as "heavy artillery", and Baboo claims he nearly wiped them all out the last time she summoned him, but other than that he's basically Robert Axelrod giving a preview of his Lord Zedd voice.
  • Evil Laugh: Which is, in fact, the only form of speech he displays. Though in one episode he boasted, "Feel the power of Lokar!", and in another, after helping Cyclopsis bring down the Megazord and Dragonzord, he said, "They're all yours, Rita!"
  • Flying Face: He looks like a giant floating head with spines on his head. However, the Soul of the Dragon graphic novel revealed that he does have a body.
  • Made of Iron: He's the only monster who survives a full blast from the Ultrazord. He does at least make a run for it after getting shot, suggesting another blast would have destroyed him.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: He disappears for good after coming close to death and seeing his work on Goldar's zord get destroyed a few times too many. (He suffered from Your Head A-Splode in the sentai, but they cut this, likely for being both disturbing and cheap at the same time.) He returns in the Soul of the Dragon graphic novel as Scorpina's new master.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: Lokar survives after nearly getting killed, but his Japanese counterpart was blown to bits alongside Dora Talos (AKA Cyclopsis the Warzord in Power Rangers).
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: He disappears after the first season and is never seen again. He may have been destroyed by the Z wave though.note 
  • You Have Failed Me: After Scorpina's failure he kills her.

     The Putty Patrollers 

The Putty Patrollers

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ab068882471c972b7e85bc2c18f53342.jpg

Golem soldiers Rita used to attack the Rangers.


  • Bare-Fisted Monk: Most of the Putties fought with only their hands, even a few of them had metal balls encased onto them.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: Some of them had blades for hands.
  • Golem: They are artificial beings made from clay, making them really resemble Golems. Their original Japanese counterparts were even called Golem-Soldiers.
  • Master of Disguise: Oddly enough, yes. They were sometimes able to disguise themselves as humans, and even the Rangers were usually fooled, at least initially.
  • Mooks: These creatures filled the role during Rita's tenure as Big Bad, existing just for the Rangers to beat up before morphing. They weren't exactly mindless, however, quite a few were shown to have intelligence and personality. Seriously, Jason even encountered a particularly smart one that could drive.
  • Non-Indicative Name: They're called Putty Patrollers, but they are never seen doing any patrolling.
  • Superpowered Mooks: 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.
  • The Unintelligible: Usually, their "speech" consisted of burbling noises, although they could talk when disguised as humans.

     The Z-Putty Patrollers 

Z-Putty Patrollers

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zputties01a.jpg

When Lord Zedd came to the Moon Palace, he brought with him his own squad of Z-Putties, stronger than the original ones.


  • Attack Its Weak Point: Possess a rather large "Z"-emblem on their chest. Hitting them on it will disintegrate them very quickly.
  • Elite Mooks: They are stupidly tough and durable, far more than most monsters on the show, the Z spot weakness is the only reason they are beatable. Even then they are a lot tougher than Rita's putties as they only have one spot to hit as opposed to the much easier damaged vanilla putties.
  • Master of Disguise: Just like Rita's, they can pass themselves off as human.
  • Original Generation: The first of many (at least in the early years) Power Rangers exclusive mooks, followed by the Tenga Warriors below.
  • Replacement Mooks: Are this to Rita's putties.
  • Summon Magic: Are summoned by Lord Zedd's magic staff, rather than created by clay.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: The simplest way to defeat them is, essentially, to strike a big target located on their center of mass.

     Tenga Warriors 

Tenga Warriors

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/788ccc45d12d5c45368316a3308fb8b9.jpg

When Rito came to the Moon Palace, he brought with him eggs that hatched into the Tengu Warriors, bird themed monsters.


  • Bird People: They are a race of anthropomorphic crows.
  • Evil vs. Evil: In the final episode of Zeo, the Tengas represent Zedd and Rita in one of these against the Cogs on behalf of Mondo... and win.
  • Expy: Possibly. In the first movie, Ivan Ooze's second set of mooks are called Tengu Warriors, who look exactly like the Tengas.
    • Justified as Fox, who made the movie, owned the rights to the name "Tengu", forcing a rename.
  • Feathered Fiend: They really deserve this title, as they are the most dangerous set of Mooks faced by the Mighty Morphin team of rangers.
  • Hidden Depths: Every season from the first to the 4th has had their own foot soldiers that are stronger than the last. That changed when the season 3 Tangas proved to be stronger than their season 4 (Zeo) counterparts the Cogs when they won a savage fight against them in the final episode of Zeo.
  • Pyrrhic Victory: In Zeo's finale, they have a brutal fight with a group of Cogs (the foot soldiers of that season) and surprisingly win... at the cost of only a single one of them, heavily wounded, missing many feathers and losing even more just by moving, being able to walk away from the fight.
  • Replacement Mooks: Are the permanent replacements to the previous Z-Putty Patrollers.
  • Sole Survivor: At the end of the team fight between the Tengas and the Cogs in "Good as Gold" only a single Tenga warrior is left standing.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Master Vile gave them some magical food that increased their strength by large amounts. The Rangers had to pull out their newest power upgrade just to defeat them at that point. It is continued into Zeo, where they defeat a group of Cogs in the last episode.
  • Villain: Exit, Stage Left: Frequently flee the battlefield when things don't go their way. Justified as they weren’t expendable golem footsoldiers like the putties who could be recreated and mass produced.
  • "The Villain Sucks" Song: Have one in the form of "Tenga Bye Bye."

     Season 1 Monsters 

General


  • Beastman: While the Zyuranger monsters had a mythology/folklore theme (though this didn't translate into MMPR) the "Zyu 2" monsters were mostly this; shark-man, mantis-man, mole-man, rhino-man etc.
  • Canon Foreigner: The "Zyu 2" monsters, who never appeared in Zyuranger.
  • Golem: Technically all of them, since they're clay statues brought to life. This can sometimes be seen when they're destroyed, and piles of rocks fall to the ground.
  • Suicidal Overconfidence: Possibly have more "run right up to the Megazord while it's charging the finisher" moments than monsters in any other season.

Bones

Voiced By: Tom Wyner
The very first monster in the entirety of the Power Rangers franchise. Finster created this skeleton creature to fight against the Rangers and trap them in a pocket dimension.
  • Dem Bones: Not surprising given that he is a skeleton monster.
  • Earthquake Machine: By striking his sword at the ground, he can cause the ground to shake. It can also cause a large crevasse to open up.
  • Mooks: He has his own squad of Skeleton Soldiers to help him.
  • Off with His Head!: The Rangers figure out that they can permanently destroy him by throwing his head down a pit.
  • Wrongfully Attributed: Bones never said "It's showtime!" like Beetlejuice did. In fact, his whole motif is based off of Baron Samedi, not the ghost with the most.

Giant

Voiced By: Tom Wyner
An enormous armored warrior summoned by Rita to combat the Rangers after Bones' destruction.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: Later seasons would have the monsters grow giant when they are defeated, but Rita summoned him right after Bones defeat, in giant size. Then again, they had to work around the Sentai footage.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: Breaks the rangers outside of the pocket dimension Bones had them trapped in in order to fight them.
  • The Voiceless: Never spoke during his fight against the Tyrannosaurus Dino Zord.

Mighty Minotaur

Voiced By: Tom Wyner
A Minotaur monster summoned to deal with the male Rangers while the female Rangers were busy

King Sphinx note 

Voiced By: Richard Cansino
An Egyptian-themed Sphinx monster sent to deal with Jason alone.
  • Adapted Out: His Zyuranger counterpart had a human form which was never seen.
  • Advertised Extra: In the early promotions for the show, he was seen alongside Goldar a lot during the commercials, and even had his own toy along with the former, Squatt, and Baboo in the first wave of action figures.
  • Blow You Away: Can use his wings to blow his opponents away. It's even strong enough to demorph Zack and Kimberly.
  • I Have Many Names: In the original pilot, he was named Fly Guy.
  • Those Two Guys: Despite being a Monster of the Week, he and Goldar are an interesting dynamic.
  • Winged Humanoid: A walking sphinx like monster with wings.

Gnarly Gnome

Voiced By: Steve Kramer
A gnome monster that took some of Angel Grove's teenagers as hostages by using the hypnotic music of his magic accordion.

Pudgy Pig

Voiced By: Dave Mallow
A pig monster sent down to eat all of Earth's food due to Rita's sickness
  • Big Eater: His entire gimmick is this.
  • Back from the Dead: Sort of. The second Pudgy Pig was created from an actual pig that Bulk and Skull adopted.
  • Brought Down to Normal: The second Pudgy Pig was transformed from a normal pig, and is reverted to his original form by the Rangers after they discover this.
  • Cephalothorax: He's a huge pig head with arms and legs.
  • Extreme Omnivore: Can eat anything with no problem, even the Ranger's own weapons.
  • Informed Ability: Zordon says that Pudgy Pig will consume all food on Earth in only 48 hours (2 days), but the porker's eating pace does not reflect that fact.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Wields a knife and fork, but never used it for fighting.
  • Kryptonite Factor: Hates spicy food. Once the Rangers figure that out, they use it to their advantage to get their weapons back.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: The second Pudgy Pig was a lot nicer, and really, the only concern the Rangers had was his eating habits.

Chunky Chicken

Voiced By: Robert Axelrod
A chicken monster sent to capture a girl named Maria in order to gain access to the Power Eggs.

Eye Guy

Voiced By: Richard Cansino
An eyeball monster created by Rita to capture intelligent children and harvest their smarts. His mission on Earth was to capture Billy's cousin.
  • Attack Its Weak Point: He can only be destroyed by attacking his main eye.
  • The Bus Came Back: One of the monsters that come back for Season 2's The Wedding and was also one of the monsters seen attacking Queen Bansheera in the Lightspeed Rescue finale.
  • The Cameo: Was seen among the monsters attacking Queen Bansheera when she fell into the Shadow World in the Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue finale.
  • Eyes Do Not Belong There: Up to Eleven as he is made of eyes!
  • Eye Beams: Naturally he would have the ability to shoot lasers from his eyes.
  • Pocket Dimension: Within his eye lies a vortex where he keeps children prisoner.
  • No-Sell: The Power Cannon hits Eye Guy but does not destroy him. Marks the first time a monster of the week defies a finisher as the Mighty Minotaur, Gnarly Gnome, and Pudgy Pig all fell to that attack.
  • Pungeon Master: He makes a number of "eye" based puns.

Mr. Ticklesneezer

Voiced By: Tom Wyner
An elf monster created from Trini's doll, Rita wanted to use his collecting obsession to capture the Rangers.
  • All Just a Dream: In actuality, he never truly fought against the Rangers in real life, only in Trini's dream.
  • Nice Guy: Possibly one of the nicest monsters Rita created.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: He openly states that he's only obeying Rita's orders because he has to.

Knasty Night

Voiced By: Tom Wyner
A black knight monster summoned by Rita to fight Zack on his birthday.
  • Adaptation Expansion: It's revealed in Green of Evil Part 2 that Rita had him collect the Sword of Darkness.
  • Black Knight: Fits the trope to a T.
  • Cool Sword: Wields a sword that can redirect the Ranger's own energy back at them, even frying their weapons.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Zack manages to figure out a way to redirect his own energy which not only burns his sword, but repairs the Megazord's sword.
  • Monster Knight

Pineoctopus

Portrayed By: Vernon Ballesteros
Voiced By: Tom Wyner
A pineapple-octopus monster who disguised himself as Pineapple the Clown in order to lure the Rangers at a carnival.
  • Adaptational Badass: One of the first times this was the case in Power Rangers; while his Zyuranger counterpart used sneezing powder, here his powder could also turn anyone it touched into a cardboard standee.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: His Zyuranger counterpart was far from a nice guy, but he never showed any desire to betray the boy he called a "kicking genius", here he just turns Sylvia to cardboard For the Evulz.
  • Dies Differently in Adaptation: In Zyuranger, he was destroyed by the Guardian Beast Tyrannosaurus as destroying him with Daizyujin would have caused sneezing powder to spread around. In Power Rangers, the Rangers destroy him with the Megazord's Cranial Laser.
  • Monster Clown: His Pineapple the Clown disguise radiates such a creepy menace that it's a relief when he assumes his true form. His true form still is a bit clown-like, however, and makes a single clown pun during the battle.
  • Plant Aliens: He's a plant-themed creature.
  • A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing: He disguised himself as Pineapple the Clown at the carnival. He also had a squad of Putty's that were disguised as clowns.

Terror Toad

Voiced By: Michael Sorich
A giant toad monster sent down to eat the Rangers.
  • Acrofatic: Like other corpulent Sentai/Power Rangers beasts, the Toad is rotund but no less of a dangerous foe for it.
  • Attack Its Weak Point: The only way to truly destroy him is to cut off his horn and attack him by shooting inside his mouth.
  • Attack Reflector: When the Rangers fired their Blade Blasters at him, he created a force field around his belly that deflected the laser blasts right back at them.
  • Battle Trophy: Variaton on this as an emblem of each Ranger's helmet appears on his belly after he has eaten them, asserting his victory over them.
  • Extreme Omnivore: Not to the extent of Pudgy Pig, but he was sent down to eat the Rangers.
  • Feed It a Bomb: Well, more like "launch an exploding arrow down it's throat."
  • I'm a Humanitarian: He ate the Rangers, first by turning them into energy spheres to eat and then by catching them with his Overly Long Tongue and swallowing them whole.
  • Mighty Glacier: He is pretty durable, and was able to shrug off most of the Rangers attacks.
  • Transformation Ray: His horn can conjure an energy-based mouth that shoots out a long tongue and wraps around the Rangers, turning them into small energy spheres, which he then swallows.
  • Villainous Glutton: Nothing says gluttonous quite like swallowing four whole people and still having room for more.
  • Whip It Good: The Toad's elastic tongue which he uses to ensnare and devour the Rangers after his horn was broken off.

Madame Woe

Voiced By: Alex Borstein
An elemental monster that kidnapped Billy's date, Marge, under the mistake that she was a Power Ranger.
  • Attack Its Weak Point: Her forehead jewel is both her strength and weakness. Once Billy crushed it, she was at the Ranger's mercy.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Madam Woe beats the everliving tar out of Billy even with the power boost he received from the others. Even earlier on the entire team wasn't able to land a good hit on her before Billy kicked her away. It's only thanks to a lucky leg sweep that Billy can remove her jewel and render her powerless.
  • Dies Differently in Adaptation: Her Zyuranger counterpart was destroyed with their Thunder Slingers, but because they were not introduced yet in Power Rangers, she was destroyed by the Power Blaster.
  • Elemental Powers: Can control the wind, rain, heat and cold through her jewel.
  • Famous Last Words: "Woe is me!"
  • Prehensile Hair: Woe can use her long braids like grapples.
  • Villains Want Mercy: After the Rangers form the Power Blaster, she tearfully says "woe is me!" and puts her arm up to shield herself from the blast. Doubles as an Oh, Crap! moment.

Snizzard

Voiced By: Bryan Cranston (1st time)/Bob Papenbrook (3rd time)
A snake-lizard monster sent down to battle the Power Rangers.
  • Attack Its Weak Point: The apple on his head was the weak point Kimberly had to aim at to destroy him.
  • The Bus Came Back: He was one of the monsters that came back in Season 2's Zedd's Monster Mash and The Wedding.
  • Dies Differently in Adaptation: While Power Rangers had Snizzard die immediately after Kimberly struck his apple, the Zyurangers still had to use the Howling Cannon (Power Blaster) to complete the job.

Dark Warrior

Voiced By: Tom Wyner
A ninja monster that kidnapped Trini's uncle for his invisibility potion.

Genie

Voiced By: Tom Wyner
A jackal-headed genie monster released by Baboo and Squatt to fight the Rangers.
  • Adaptational Villainy: In Zyuranger, the genie (or Djinn as he was called) was more of a Punch-Clock Villain since he obeyed whoever held the lamp and genuinely liked when his masters treated him nice, despising Bandora. Here however he is a one-dimensional baddie who loyally served Rita and never even granted one wish.
  • Blade on a Stick: Wields one with a drill end.
  • Cutting the Knot: The only way the Rangers could defeat him was having Alpha 5 and Zordon destroy his lamp.
  • Our Genies Are Different: This one has the usual garb but with the bodily appearance of an anthropomorphic jackal. He also doesn't seem to have much in the line of wishes. He is however a fearsome warrior, nearly drilling through the Megazord's cockpit window.

Shellshock

Voiced By: Richard Epcar
A tortoise monster created by Baboo and Squatt from one of Finster's unfinished creations by adding random junk onto it.
  • And I Must Scream: Shellshock's freeze ray has this effect, even though his victims often don't realize what's happened to them given how quickly it acts.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Shellshock is certainly more cartoonish even by Power Rangers standards, but damn if he doesn't do a decent job keeping the Rangers on the ropes before Tommy and Trini return.
  • Improbable Weapon User: His main weapon is a traffic light that can either freeze its opponent, or make its target run non-stop.
  • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: A tortoise monster with a traffic light on his spine combined with various other weapons/trinkets.
  • Turtle Power: Well a tortoise actually, but it still counts.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: The deandra flowers short out his traffic light and make him lose some of his power as well as temporarily disorient him.

Spidertron

Voiced By: Tom Wyner
A spider monster that sent to Earth via a fake statue.
  • All Webbed Up: Naturally he would have this ability as a spider.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Early on in the Megazord fight, the Rangers land a huge haymaker that knocks him down, but rather than being weakened, he gets up immediately, extremely pissed off, and creates a giant spider-web to trap the Megazord in, electrocutes it, lifts it up and tosses it aside. In panic Jason says "DISENGAGE THE MEGAZORD!", but the battle with the individual zords goes even worse.
  • Giant Spider: Well of course
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: His final fate, courtesy of the Dragonzord Battle Mode.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Spidertron, naturally for an arachnid.
  • No-Sell: Giant sized, he was able to shrug of the individual Zord's attacks. At least until Dragonzord Battle Mode arrived.
  • The Voiceless: Doesn't talk except for roaring.

Spit Flower

Voiced By: Mike Reynolds
An insect monster that eats flowers in order to become stronger.
  • Attack Its Weak Point: Kimberly had to strike his spit sack in order to weaken him.
  • Garden of Evil: The Spitflower can turn any harmless little plant into a toothy gnawing monster, or as Alpha puts it, "Dangerous daisies!"
  • Made of Iron: Put it this way, it took three blasts from the Power Blaster to take him down, although the second one knocked off his mighty claw arm.
  • Power Pincers: Has these for arms.
  • The Worf Effect: Spitflower proves to be a match even for Dragonzord Battle Mode, which was able to easily annihilate Spidertron in the previous episode. Subverted when Spitflower itself plays Worf to Kim's bow, like several monsters before it.

Frankenstein Monster

Voiced By: Tom Wyner
Rita's version of Frankenstein's Monster, sent down to infiltrate Angel Grove High's Halloween party and defeat the Rangers.
  • Decomposite Character: His Zyuranger counterpart was part of a three mode monster. In Power Rangers, the two are separated into Frankenstein Monster and Mutitus (the second mode involved Frankenstein undergoing a transformation too gruesome for American censors).
  • Epic Flail: Can combine his neck bolts together to form a spiked flail weapon.
  • Frankenstein's Monster: A little hard not to be one when he has Frankenstein in the name!
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: How Frankie is taken down, thanks to the Dragonzord Battle Mode.
  • Made of Iron: The Frankenstein takes a hell of a lot of damage before being destroyed by Dragonzord Fighting Mode. Even then, the DBM was losing badly beforehand.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: An extremely rare example of a Monster of the Week played by a person in makeup rather than a rubber monster suit.

Wheel of Misfortune

Originally an antique spinning wheel that belonged to Kimberly's grandmother. It was put under a spell by Rita and turned into the Wheel of Misfortune.
  • Deadly Disc: Essentially it is a wheel, and a monster.

Mutitus

Voiced By: Richard Epcar
A zombie monster sent by Rita to attack the Power Rangers.
  • Decomposite Character: His Zyuranger counterpart was part of a three mode monster. In Power Rangers, the two are separated into Frankenstein Monster and Mutitus.
  • Epic Flail: Wields a spiked flail weapon similar to Frankenstein Monster's.
  • One-Winged Angel: After receiving a boost of power from Lokar, he becomes even more monstrous than before.
  • Spikes of Villainy: Has them in his second form.

Rockstar

Voiced By: Tony Oliver
A rock monster who accompanied Scorpina in collecting the Mirror of Destruction.

Samurai Fan Man

Voiced By: Tom Wyner
A samurai monster that captured Kimberly in his magic bottle.
  • Blade on a Stick: Wields a spear weapon.
  • Blow You Away: With his giant fan, he can create gusts of wind.
  • Godzilla Threshold: After they get blown away, Zordon regroups them in the command center and breaks one of his own rules by telling them to use their zords to crush the Samurai Fan Man while he was still small. However, they wanted until he grew giant to summon their zords.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: He delivers this to the Rangers, their individual zords, the Dragonzord Battle Mode, the Megazord, and the Dragonzord. In fact the finishing move to kill monsters is used to simply make him drop the jar holding Kimberly so they can form the Ultrazord.
  • Pyrrhic Victory: Whoops the Dragonzord Battle Mode's ass, but mid-battle it manages to use its finishing strike to break the rope holding the jar, which was the idea behind forming it in the first place.
  • Suicidal Overconfidence: Unlike most monsters, he arrogantly charges the Ultrazord, which dispatches him in seconds as it does every foe to go against it.

Babe Ruthless

Voiced By: Richard Epcar
A baseball-playing goblin monster sent down to Earth by Goldar and Scorpina.
  • Adapted Out: His Zyuranger counterpart had a human form which was never seen.
  • Shout-Out: His name is reference to famous baseball player George Herman "Babe" Ruth.

Weaveworm

Voiced By: Richard Cansino
Scorpina's pet silkworm monster that was sent down to trap the Rangers in a giant cocoon.

Fang

Voiced By: Michael Sorich
An egg-eating monster that was manipulated by Rita to attack the Rangers.
  • Adaptation Species Change: He was not one of Bandora's creations in Zyuranger, but a prehistoric monster from beneath the earth. Hence why you never actually see him pop out of the monster machine.
  • Adaptational Intelligence: Downplayed. He was able to speak in coherent sentences, unlike his Zyuranger counterpart which only spoke in growls.
  • Adaptational Villainy: His Zyuranger couterpart was more of a Tragic Villain due to being manipulated by Bandora to attack the Rangers for destroying her eggs (when it was Bandora's minions that did it). This led to the Zyurangers reluctantly destroying her despite trying their best to reason with her. None of this applies to Fang in Power Rangers though.
  • Dies Differently in Adaptation: He was destroyed by Goryujun in Zyuranger, but was destroyed by the Ultrazord in ''Power Rangers.
  • Gender Flip: He was a female in Zyuranger.

Cyclops

Voiced By: Richard Epcar
A cyclops monster sent down to distract the Rangers while the Green Candle burned Tommy's powers away.
  • Shapeshifting: He has the ability to transform into the Ranger's zords primarily the Megazord, Dragonzord Battle Mode, Dragonzord, and Tyrannosaurus Dinozord.

Hatchasaurus & Cardiatron

Voiced By (Hatchasaurus): Kirk Thornton (First appearance)/Steve Kramer (Second appearance)
Voiced By (Cardiatron): Richard Epcar
A bird-dinosaur monster sent down to attack the Rangers. Cardiatron was the computer nucleus inside him that could heal and regenerate all wounds.
  • Attack Its Weak Point: The only way to truly destroy Hatchasaurus was to destroy Cardiatron.
  • Big "NO!": Cadiatron gives one as Jason's about to destroy it.
  • Brains and Brawn: The sentient heart Cardiatron providing the intelligence that makes Hatchasaurus function while Hatchy himself is little more than a roaring beast, albeit more powerful than most.
  • The Bus Came Back: He was one of the monsters that came back in Season 2's The Ninja Encounter.
  • Healing Factor: With Cardiatron inside him, he can regenerate from all wounds.
  • No Ontological Inertia: Averted, surprisingly. While Cardiatron's death leaves Hatchasaurus disabled, he still needs to be killed properly by the Ultrazord to end the battle.
  • The Voiceless: Hatchasaurus doesn't speak, he only roars and snarls like Mighty Minotaur and Spidertron before him.

Polluticorn

Voiced By: Michael Sorich
A unicorn monster sent down to pollute the Earth.
  • Adaptational Villainy: Downplayed as he was a villain in both. His Sentai counterpart is actually the polar opposite of his Power Rangers self. His Zyuranger counterpart was an environmental extremist Knight Templar who hated humans for their polluting and making animals go extinct, and befriended a young boy to help him further his agenda. Power Rangers turned him from a somewhat Tragic Villain into a For the Evulz pollution monster. That recycling center he attacked? Originally a factory being attacked for pollution.
  • Attack Its Weak Point: If his horn is cut off, he grows weaker
  • Blow You Away: He can flap his wings in high speeds and blow his enemies away and also damage them with energy blasts.
  • Irony: An anti-pollution monster became a pollution-themed monster in Power Rangers.
  • Dies Differently in Adaptation: Downplayed. He was originally defeated by Megazord riding Titanus and doing a special supercharged version of the Power Sword strike. Here the part with Titanus is edited out.
  • Hellish Horse: Polluticorn intends to cover the world in pollution.
  • Shock and Awe: His most powerful attack is firing lightning beams from his eyes.

Twin Man

Voiced By: Bryan Cranston
A mirror-themed knight monster sent down by Scorpina to ruin the Ranger's reputation in both their civilian life and Ranger life. He and four Putties copied the appearance of the Rangers.
  • Monster Knight: Another one like the Knasty Knight.
  • The Psycho Rangers: Maybe one of the first prototypes in the franchises history.
  • Shapeshifting: Like Cyclops, he is capable of shape shifting into anything, though he primarily picked Jason's appearance. His powers can extend to the Putty's as he was able to change them into the other Ranger's appearance.
  • Suddenly Voiced: Twin Man's Zyuranger equivalent never spoke.

Cyclopsis

A giant Evil Zord piloted by Goldar to attack the Rangers.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: After receiving an upgrade from Lokar, it gained these.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: It dished them out to the Rangers on their first two fights.
  • Evil Counterpart: Can be considered one to the Ranger's own Megazords.
  • Fatal Flaw: According to Alpha 5, Cyclopsis needs to readjust it's system when ever a new opponent arrives. After learning that, the Rangers decided to exploit the hell out of it by using every Megazord configuration they had against it.
  • Famous Last Words: "OVERLOAD. OVERLOAD. TOO MANY CHANGES. SYSTEM LOCKED."
  • Run the Gauntlet: The Rangers do a heroic version by forcing Cyclopsis to fight all of their Zord combinations in sequence. First the Tyrannosaurus Dinozord attacks on its own, then Cyclopsis fights the Megazord, then Dragonzord, then Dragonzord Battle Mode, then Mega Dragonzord, and finally Ultrazord. Cyclopsis's systems overload from the strain of constantly adjusting to the next opponent, and it's paralyzed when the Rangers finally use the Ultrazord.

Octoplant

A narcissistic plant-based monster with tentacle-like vines.

Goo Fish

Voiced By: Robert Axelrod
A fish monster sent down to exasperate Billy's fish phobia.
  • Adaptation Expansion: One of the first Zyu2 monsters to appear.
  • An Axe to Grind: His main weapon.
  • The Bus Came Back: He was one of the fish monsters that came back in Season 2's A Reel Fish Story.
  • Fish Person: A walking talking one, and it would not be the last of the Zyu2 monsters to have this motif.
  • Gonk: Goo Fish is pretty hideous, even by PR monster standards.
  • Poisonous Person: The aptly named Goofish has venomous spittle, which he himself is susceptible to for some reason.
  • Trauma Button: His main role was to exasperate Billy's fish phobia, made worse by the fact that Rita amplified the Blue Ranger's fear with a spell

Goatan

Voiced By (Lion part): Richard Epcar

Two-Headed Parrot

Voiced By: Robert Axelrod
A parrot monster with a second head on its chest.
  • Adaptation Expansion: One of the Zyu2 monsters to appear.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: It likes Pamango fruit, but it's also it's Fatal Flaw as the two heads bickered over who would eat it.
  • Villain Wants Mercy: He begged the Rangers not to kill him with the Ultrazord, but did not get his way. Which is odd considering the Rangers have spared villains before and given them chances to surrender.

Peckster

Voiced By: Scott Page-Pagter
A woodpecker monster.

Pumpkin Rapper

Voiced By: Michael Sorich
A hip-hopping jack-o-lantern monster created by Squatt and Baboo.
  • Adaptation Expansion: One of the Zyu2 monsters to appear.
  • The Bus Came Back: One of the monsters that returned for Season 2's Zedd's Monster Mash.
  • Rhymes on a Dime: A rapping monster who even continues rapping when he starts losing the battle.
  • Took a Level in Badass: When he returned in Zedd's Monster Mash, he was a match for the Thunder Megazord. Last time the Rangers didn't need to use a Megazord at all to beat him.

  • Hate Plague: When somebody touches his fin boomerang, they develop a heated rivalry with another. This happens between Jason and Tommy.
  • Villains Want Mercy: Initially subverted when he seemed to ask for mercy when trapped in a net before cutting his way out. Played straight when faced with the Power Blaster and later the Megazord Power Sword.

Lizzinator

Voiced By: Dave Mallow
A super-strong lizard monster with a Schwarzenegger-like Austrian accent.
  • Adaptation Expansion: One of the Zyu2 monsters to appear.
  • Bare-Fisted Monk: Is quite strong in hand to hand combat.
  • The Bus Came Back: One of the monsters that returned for Season 2's The Wedding and Season 3's Ninja Quest.
  • Famous Last Words: "Hey, wait! No fair, I was just about to win!"
  • Made of Iron: He was one of Rita's most durable monsters, primarily because he was made out of super metals from another galaxy.
  • Shout-Out: One to Arnold Schwarzenegger for his voice. Even his name is a play on Schwarzenegger's most famous role The Terminator.
  • Wolverine Claws: Uses these for the lack of weapons.

Rhinoblaster

Voiced By: Richard Epcar
A football-playing rhinoceros monster.
  • Adaptation Expansion: One of the Zyu2 monsters to appear.
  • The Bus Came Back: Returns for a couple of episodes in Season 2 such as Orchestral Maneuvers in the Park, Zedd's Monster Mash and The Wedding.

Commander Crayfish

Voiced By: Tom Wyner
A crayfish monster that leads a group of fake "Mutant Rangers".
  • Adaptation Expansion: One of the Zyu2 monsters to appear.
  • The Bus Came Back: He was one of the fish monsters that came back in Season 2's A Reel Fish Story.
  • Psycho Rangers: Leads another prototype version, in this case, the Mutant Rangers. They even wield evil copies of the Ranger's weapons (really the civilian based weapons from Zyuranger), except for the Green Mutant Ranger who wields the Sword of Darkness.

Oysterizer

Voiced By: Scott Page-Pagter
An oyster monster whose pearls cause people to freeze.
  • Adaptation Expansion: One of the Zyu2 monsters to appear.
  • The Bus Came Back: He was one of the monsters that came back in Season 2's Rangers Back In Time.
  • Innocuously Important Episode: Who would have thought that a regular monster that gets taken out by the Megazord would be Rita's last attack before Zedd arrives (that we know of). Played with in that although many elements of the episode aren't that remarkable, it does feature the first underwater zord battle (at least for the first half of the zord battle), meaning that Rita could have possibly found a flaw in the Megazord worth exploiting, had Zedd not arrived.
  • Knife Nut: Wields one as his main weapon.

     Season 2 Monsters 

General


  • Adaptation Species Change: The Dairanger monsters in the original were humans who turned into monsters with a martial arts technique. Here they're created from objects or animals.

A white ape monster created from Zack's gorilla costume.
  • Adaptation Expansion: One of the Zyu2 monsters to appear.
  • The Bus Came Back: One of the monsters to return in Zedd's Monster Mash.
  • Dirty Coward: Tries vainly to flee the battle as soon as the tables start to turn.
  • Killer Space Monkey: Primator. Though he was originally Zack's ape suit, brought to life by Lord Zedd.
  • Kryptonite Factor: Reflective surfaces is his weakness, whether it be Alpha's shiny dome or Kimberly's mirror, as they cancel his transformations.
  • Shapeshifting: As with Twin Man from Season 1, Primator can change his appearance to the Rangers in both civilian and morphed. Unlike Twin Man, he doesn't have a preference.

Saliguana

Voiced By: John C. Hyke (fist time)/Bob Papenbrook (third time)

Guitardo

Voiced By: Tony Oliver
A guitar-playing cicada monster used by Lord Zedd to hypnotize the Rangers with music.
  • Adaptation Expansion: One of the Zyu2 monsters to appear.
  • Informed Power: Is said to be a mind-control monster, but the Rangers never appear to have their thoughts altered. Instead he appears to have weight-changing abilities.
  • Magic Music: He's much more brutal with this trope than the Gnarly Gnome was.

Turbanshell

Voiced By: Barbara Goodson
A conch monster sent to attack Tommy and drain the last of his Green Ranger powers.
  • Adaptation Expansion: The last of the Zyu2 monsters to appear in MMPR.
  • Puzzle Boss: Overpowers all the zords and is immune to their finisher until his one weakness is discovered, you have to both scorch his interior and freeze his exterior. Afterwards he stumbles around dazed and confused and is finally weak enough to be vulnerable to the Thunder Saber.
  • Simple Staff: Wields one with a conch shell on the end.
  • Wake-Up Call Boss: Not that Zedd's monsters were pushovers, but Turbanshell was the first one where it gave the Ranger's more trouble than needed, even breaking apart the Thunder Megazord in the second battle.

Pipebrain

Voiced By: Brad Orchard
A pipe monster created from the Golden Pipe Trophy. He was created to face off against Jason while the other Rangers were captured.

Voiced By: Brianne Siddall
A hand-lightning rod monster created from a stone fist statue. She can summon two other monsters known as AC and DC.
  • Adapted Out: Her human form from Dairanger was not used.
  • Meaningful Name: Other than being based on a popular rock band, AC and DC can also mean "alternative current" and "direct current", electricity terms for monsters that have electric based powers.
  • Shock and Awe: Nimrod and her two monsters have this ability.
  • Shout-Out: AC and DC is a play on the rock band AC/DC.
  • Terrible Trio: She and her two goons serve as this trope.
  • The Worf Effect: She and her two goons were strong enough to handle against the Thunder Megazord and the newly created Tigerzord, but struggled against the MegaTigerzord.

Lipsyncher

Voiced By: Alex Borstein
A lipstick monster created from a tube of lipstick Trini gave to Kimberly for her date.
  • Adapted Out: Her human form from Dairanger was not used.
  • Beauty Is Never Tarnished: Subverted as a slash from Jason's power sword left a mark on her face.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Until her face is damaged, then she's all business.
  • Vanity Is Feminine: She's female and vain. Rather than bursting into tears when her face is injured, she has a Villainous Breakdown and drops her dance majorette persona and becomes a vicious fighter.
  • The Worf Effect: Survives the Red Dragonzord finisher and quickly gains the upper hand after it fails, but is utterly helpless against the superpowered version with the Thunderzord Assault Team.

Pursehead

Voiced By: Richard Cansino
A purse monster created from Kimberly's purse.
  • Adapted Out: His human form from Dairanger was not used.
  • Dies Differently in Adaptation: In Dairanger, he was destroyed by the team's Qiryoku Bomber, but in Power Rangers, he was destroyed single handily by Tommy (since none of the Dairanger suits other than the Kibaranger one were adapted until Megaforce).
  • Epic Fail: Dies after a blast from Saba and a couple of kicks from Tommy.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Some of his weapons include a compact mirror to freeze his opponents, and dental floss to lasso them.

Magnet Brain

Voiced By: Michael Sorich
A magnet monster created from Billy's science project.
  • No-Sell: Is hit by the Power Blaster but doesn't fall over and die, is just pushed along the ground and into a wall. Shrugs it off like a minor nuisance. This demonstrates the power increase of Zedd's monsters.

Key Monster

Voiced By: Mike Reynolds
A key monster that guards the entrance to the haunted forest where Lord Zedd keeps Doomstone.

Doomstone

Voiced By: Tom Wyner
A gravestone monster who resurrects a number of deceased monsters to battle Tommy.
  • Demoted to Extra: His Dairanger counterpart was part of a recurring subgroup of monsters called "The Gorma Three Stooges". Here, he's just a simple monster, and none of his teammates were even adapted.

  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Once the Pumpkin Rapper grows, he suddenly disappears.

Terror Blossom

A four-headed monster created from a statue by Angel Grove High's art class for a world teen summit.

Beamcaster

Voiced By: Dave Mallow
A radio monster created from Bulk's energy output meter and a fishing pole that belonged to Skull's dad.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Beamcaster looks ridiculous and talks like some evil Howard Cosell, but he likely came closer to achieving true victory for Zedd than any monster before him, hypnotizing the entire team!
  • Dies Differently in Adaptation: His Dairanger counterpart was destroyed by the Chi-Power Bazooka (the Power Cannon's sentai counterpart), but because it was not introduced yet, he was destroyed by the Power Blaster instead. He was also the last one to be destroyed by the Power Blaster.
  • Mad Bomber: Beamcaster uses explosives for weapons.
  • Near-Villain Victory: Brainwashes the Rangers and Bulk and Skull (who would later save their bacon in a similar situation), as well as many Angel Grove citizens. Had it not been for Rocky, Adam, and Aisha, he probably would have had a victory in the bag.

Silver Horns

Voiced By: Michael Sorich
A tick monster that becomes the first monster battled by Rocky, Adam, and Aisha when they become Power Rangers.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Delivers one to Rocky in his Red Dragon Thunderzord. Is casually laughing the whole time, pushing his zord aside and shrugging off the finisher. It takes the Thunder Ultrazord to kill him.
  • No-Sell: Virtually every attack the Power Rangers tried had no effect on the monster until the Thunder Ultrazord.
  • Summon Bigger Fish: His apparent reaction to Serpentera and Zedd showing up for backup (not that he needed it at that point).
  • Villainous Breakdown: A very subtle one. He seems almost uninterested in the battle early on, mostly due to the one-sidedness of it, even blocking the Red Dragon Thunderzord's finisher with one hand and letting Rocky attack before delivering his own powerful attacks. The breakdown happened when Tommy showed up with the Tigerzord, taking the fight a bit more seriousnly, he drops the laid back country boy persona and responds with "What?! The sherriff has a deputy?! No possee's gonna get ME!" and hurtles a bunch of rocks at them and when Rocky attacks he's instantly tossed back. It's like he knew what was coming next (the Thunder Ultrazord).

Skelerena

Voiced By: Tom Fahn
A skeletal hyena monster created from a picture of a hyena on a magazine.
  • Adapted Out: His human form from Dairanger was not used.
  • Adaptational Species Change: Garouki was a wolf-beast in Dairanger, but became hyena-based in Power Rangers.
  • Adaptational Villainy: While Jin Matoba of Dairanger was mostly a villain, he at least had a Noble Demon quality to him that wouldn't allow for any dirty tricks, and his monster form was more of a Brainwashed and Crazy situation. Skelerena, by contrast, is a straight up monster, and laughs at his opponents misfortunes.
  • Demoted to Extra: His Dairanger counterpart, Jin Matoba, was actually the main rival to the Red Ranger, and the monster form, Garouki, was created when the villains powered him with Gorma energy. However, because they could not use his human form, his monster form was downgraded to Monster of the Week. He ended up being the first monster to be killed by the Power Cannon.

Scatterbrain

Voiced By: Mike Reynolds
A kaleidoscope monster created from a kaleidoscope to erase the Rangers' memories of their own identities.
  • Beware the Silly Ones:
    • Scatterbrain looks even sillier than Beamcaster was, but had even more success.
    • He ended up having this trope thrown at him. He learned the hard way that the comic relief duo, Bulk and Skull are not to be trifled with. In fact, the two are the reason the Rangers got their memories back.

  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: He has a beam that can erase people's memories.

Pachinko Head

Voiced By: Michael Sorich
A pachinko monster created from Ernie's pachinko machine.
  • Adaptational Nice Guy: EXTREMELY downplayed. His original counterpart was fun-loving and mischievous as well as violent. The "violent" part was only added to Pachinko Head's resume once he transformed five of the Rangers into giant pachinko balls.
  • Adaptational Wimp: His Dairanger form manages to No-Sell nearly every attack from their mecha, yet in Power Rangers, he's the Red Dragon Thunderzord's equal in hand to hand combat and the Thunder Megazord easily overpowers him (while it didn't in Dairanger).
  • Dies Differently in Adaptation: His Dairanger counterpart was destroyed by Serpentara's counterpart. Because it would not make sense for Lord Zedd to destroy his own monster, Pachinko Head was destroyed by the Thunder Megazord instead.

Showbiz Monster

Voiced By: Bob Papenbrook
A video camera monster created from a TV camera when the Rangers guest starred on The Harvey Garvey Show.

Flame Head

Voiced By: Alex Borstein
A furnace monster sent by Lord Zedd to light Angel Grove ablaze.
  • Playing with Fire: Given that he has flame in his name, this isn't surprising.
  • Sissy Villain: He has a female voice and acts more like a female villain than a male villain.

Cannontop

Voiced By: John C. Hyke
A cannon monster created from a miniature cannon model belonging to Billy's cousin.

Weldo

Voiced By: Eddie Frierson
A robot monster used by Lord Zedd to foil the Rangers' plans to help Bookala return to his planet.
  • Decomposite Character: He and Bookala were actually the same monster in Dairanger.
  • One-Hit Kill: Billy kills Weldo with his Blade Blaster, something never done to any other non-Putty before or since!

Bookala

Voiced By: Dave Mallow (Evil Bookala)
A benevolent Kabuki-themed alien who crashes on Earth. Lord Zedd desires the "lightning diamond" that powers his spaceship and creates an Evil Twin of the alien to fight the Rangers.
  • Adaptational Nice Guy: The original at least is a lot nicer than his Dairanger counterpart. Subverted though for his evil twin.
  • Aliens Speaking English: Downplayed; Bookala has to learn the language of another planet by repeating words given to it by its inhabitants. The version created by Zedd seems to mostly not have this problem.
  • Decomposite Character: He and Weldo were actually the same monster in Dairanger.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: His evil twin created by Zedd has a much deeper voice.
  • Innocent Aliens: Bookala is; the duplicate Zedd creates, not so much.

Jaws of Destruction

Voiced By: Chuck Kovacic
A saw monster created from a wood shop buzzsaw from Angel Grove High
  • Adapted Out: His human form from Dairanger was not used.
  • Informed Ability: Zordon said that he was one of Zedd's most dangerous monsters sent to finish them off once and for all. Turns out to be a ho-hum Megazord battle. In Dairanger, he was a Perilous Old Fool who was the second-in-command, outranking Shadam, but the first to be killed by Dairehoh, his advanced age meant his reflexes and strength weren't what they sued to be, but is far from a wimp.

Tube Monster

Voiced By: Brad Orchard
An inner tube monster created from Bulk and Skull's rubber ring.

Photomare

Voiced By: Kirk Thornton
A camera monster created from an instant camera.
  • Adapted Out: Her human form from Dairanger was not used.
  • Magical Camera: Was able to briefly trap the child-Rangers in photos taken from her camera.
  • Power Copying: Made a copy of the Red Dragon Thunderzord Warrior mode during the Megazord fight,

Wizard of Deception

Voiced By: Tony Oliver
A time-travelling sorcerer summoned on Rita's behalf who creates a clone of Tommy with Green Ranger powers.
  • Informed Ability: Said to be Zordon's old rival but is taken out by his own wand.
  • Off-the-Shelf FX: Clearly made from a department store Halloween costume. His wand is clearly a cheap piece of plastic.

Rat Monsters

A mob of mutant rats created by the Wizard of Deception to attack colonial-era Angel Grove.
  • Reality Ensues: While they scared the colonists, the Power Rangers handled them with no problem. Did the Wizard of Deception really think that a few mook-level rat monsters would be able to take out a group of superheroes who see putties as a minor annoyance?

Snow Monster

Voiced By: Gardner Baldwin
A yeti monster from the storybook Grumble the Magic Elf who attacks those trespassing his mountain valley.

Turkey Jerk

A turkey monster created by Bulk and Skull in their latest scheme to uncover the Power Rangers' secret identities, only to be brought to life by Lord Zedd.
  • What an Idiot!: 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.

Mondo the Magician

Portrayed By: Rintaro Nishi
Voiced By: Mike Reynolds
An evil sorcerer and old friend of Rita Repulsa trapped inside the "Grumble the Magic Elf" storybook.
  • Adapted Out: His human form from Dairanger was not used.
  • Adaptational Wimp: Downplayed. Was winning in Dai Ranger's battle but never fought Dairehoh, here he was taken out by the Thunder Megazord but it took two finishing strikes.
  • Ambiguously Human: He may be a human as he looks like a metal covered person, but considering his Dairanger human form was never seen, it's hard to tell.
  • Demoted to Extra: His Dairanger counterpart was the main villain.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: He was trapped inside the "Grumble the Magic Elf" storybook, and while he was briefly let out by Rita, he was sent back after the Rangers defeated him.

Needlenose

Voiced By: Tony Oliver
A Mexican-accented cactus monster created from a rare species of cactus and sent alongside Goldar to the year 1880 when Angel Grove was a Wild West town.

Vase Face

Voiced By: Brianne Siddall
A ceramic monster created from a clay sculpture Tommy made in art class.
  • Adapted Out: His Dairanger counterpart had puppets of himself to make the Ranger's fight them instead of himself. However, they were never used in Power Rangers.

     Season 3 Monsters 

General


Repellator

Voiced By: Ken Merckx
A monster Lord Zedd sent down to take advantage of the Rangers (minus a sick Kimberly) being away to Edenoi helping Dex Stewart, the Masked Rider.

Vampirus

Voiced By: Michael Sorich
A hooded vampire monster sent down by Rito Revolto to take control of Ninjor's Temple of Power.
  • The Bus Came Back: Would return later that season in A Different Shade of Pink.
  • Informed Ability: Is hyped up to be a super destructive monster but is only used to show how badass Ninjor is.

Artist Mole

Voiced By: Eddie Frierson
A painter-mole monster that was created from a nightmare Kimberly had about leaving Angel Grove.
  • Adaptation Species Change: 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)
  • The Bus Came Back: Would return later that season in A Different Shade of Pink.
  • Hybrid Monster: Artisimole seems to be a combination of Kimberly's mother's fiancé and one of his paintings.

Lanterra

Voiced By: Mike Reynolds (1st Time)/Brian Tahash (2nd Time)
A paper lantern monster created from Adam's own paper lantern.
  • Friend or Idol Decision: For Adam, he doesn't want to risk harming his family heirloom lantern.
  • Shoot the Dog: Defeating him is this for Adam. Luckily the lantern is found unharmed at the end of the episode.

Marvo the Meanie

Voiced By: Robert Zachar
A fungal elf monster accidentally created by Rito Revolto from a science teacher named Mr. Wilton in an attempt to transform one of the Rangers into a monster.

Centiback

Voiced By: Brad Orchard
A football-playing centipede monster.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: Possibly given the fact he's seen at the end entertaining Rita and Zedd, he's never seen again though.

Hate Master

Voiced By: Michael Sorich
A rapping monster created from spare monster parts Finster had lying around his workshop.
  • Adaptational Comic Relief: Downplayed. Is no longer the Knight of Cerebus he was in Kakuranger, while not exactly a comedic monster like Pumpkin Rapper, but a rap-themed monster spreading hate is a little less threatening than The Dreaded bringer of doom that Nue was.
  • Hate Plague: By rapping (yes rapping) and using any form of dirt trod upon by his victims, he can inflict a spell over his victims that cause them to feel nothing but hate.
  • Rhymes on a Dime: Like the Pumpkin Rapper, the Hate Master loves rapping in his speeches.

Face Stealer

Voiced By: Scott Page-Pagter
A monster that consumes human faces originally imprisoned in an urn long ago, only to be freed by Rita in the present.

Miss Chief

Voiced By: Rebecca Forstadt
A firefighter monster that Rita gives a love potion to wreak havoc among the teens of Angel Grove.

Katastrophe

Voiced By: Catherine Sutherland
A feline monster created by Rita through transforming the mind-controlled and newly-introduced Katherine Hillard.

Incisorator

Voiced By: Oliver Page (first time)/Richard Epcar (second time)
A monster briefly used by Lord Zedd to distract the Rangers while Goldar kidnapped Kimberly.

See Monster

Voiced By: Brian Tahash
A monster whose multiple eyes are all hidden inside his coat-like body, which he flashes open at people.

Crabby Cabbie

Voiced By: Michael Sorich
A taxicab monster created by Lord Zedd from a taxi that Kimberly, Bulk, and Skull were all riding in.

Garbage Mouth

Voiced By: Brad Orchard
A trash-themed lizard monster.
  • Arm Cannon: In his second appearance, his right arm is replaced with a laser cannon.
  • The Bus Came Back: One of the four monsters that returned for Aliens Rangers of Aquitar.

Ravenator

Voiced By: Matt K. Miller
A gluttonous monster with a massive mouth able to induce hunger in others.
  • Big Eater: Part of his goal was to make Tommy eat large amounts of junk food.
  • Trojan Horse: Was part of Rita's plan. Go inside Tommy so the Rangers take him to the Command Center and attack from the inside.

Brick Bully

Voiced By: Richard Epcar (first time)/Brian Tahash (second time)
A wall monster accidentally created by Rita when she missed with a spell intended to turn Kat into a monster again.

Sinister Simian

Voiced By: Brianne Siddall
A chimpanzee monster created by Lord Zedd from a trained chimp named Kelly.

Blue Globbor

Voiced By: Eddie Frierson
A powerful slime monster created by Master Vile to drain the powers of Ninjor and the Rangers.
  • The Artifact: His ranger form makes a lot more sense in Kakuranger as in that adaptation, the Kakurangers were the main heroes compared to the Alien Rangers (who came in very late into Season 3).
  • Cerebus Syndrome: Like with Master Vile, things get darker and more serious beginning with him.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Downplayed, doesn't entirely lose the goofiness of Power Rangers monsters but is a serious threat
  • Power Copying: He can gain parts from anybody he has a connection with, and use their abilities.

Dischordia

Voiced By: Diane H. Gillespie (incorrectly credited to Alex Borstein)
An old friend of Master Vile who comes to assist him using her deadly singing.
  • The Brute: Perhaps Master Vile's most powerful monster yet, given the fact that she nearly overwhelmed the Rangers and Ninjor with her own powers.
  • Dies Differently in Adaptation: Her Kakuranger counterpart was destroyed by a combined effort of Samuraiman, Super Muteki Shogun and Kakure Daishogun (Ninjor, Shogun Megazord, and Ninja Megazord in Japan). In Power Rangers, she was destroyed by the Shogun Ultrazord.
  • Godzilla Threshold: The Rangers didn't take any chances with her in the Megazord battle as they brought out both the Ninja and Shogun Megazords.
  • Unrelated in the Adaptation: In Kakuranger, Dischordia was Master Vile's sister.

Professor Longnose

Voiced By: Kirk Thornton
One of Master Vile's top generals, sent to lead a team of monsters against the Aquitian Rangers.
  • Bowdlerise: In Kakuranger the finishing move sliced off his nose. This was cut from Power Rangers, but perhaps to make up for it, some nice additional effects were added to his destruction.
  • Nice Hat: In fact, it's the only thing left after he explodes.

Parrot Top

Voiced By: Matt K. Miller
A parrot monster who formed one of the five monsters sent under Professor Longnose, and the only one the Power Rangers hadn't fought before.

Slotsky

Voiced By: Stephen Apostolina
A robot monster created by Lord Zedd from a device Billy intended to use to revert the Power Rangers back into teenagers after Master Vile's time-reversal spell.
  • Sore Loser: He hates it when things are not going his way.

Erik and Merrick, the Barbaric Brothers

Voiced By: Michael Sorich (both)
A pair of Surfer Dude monsters sent by Lord Zedd to poison Angel Grove's waters and prevent the Aquitian Rangers from rehydrating.

Bratboy

Voiced By: Paul Schrier
A child monster created by Rita and Zedd from a young Bulk (a result of Master Vile's time-reversal spell).
  • Adapted Out: He had a normal form from Kakuranger that was not used.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: It was pretty obvious that Power Rangers could not get away with killing off Bulk, even as a child.

Witchblade

Voiced By: Wendee Lee
A witch monster with a huge set of blades in place of her right arm.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: Her right arm contains a lot of blades.
  • Shout-Out: She has a lot in common with the Wicked Witch of the West, down to the voice.
  • What an Idiot!: Knocked the Alien Rangers into the water, which gave them a little power boost.

Arachnofiend

Voiced By: Julie Maddalena
An arachnid monster created by Lord Zedd from a spider living in Billy's garage lab.
