Villains[edit]

Rita Repulsa[edit]

Rita Repulsa was the primary antagonist for the first 60 episodes,[3] and was relegated to the position of secondary antagonist after the changing of the zords. She also married Lord Zedd. She is a witch who is the daughter of the first demonic overlord of the M51 Galaxy, Master Vile. Her brother Rito is a bumbler, and completely incompetent. She also had a child with Zedd named Thrax, who was sealed away at some point between 1998 and 2007, who would have only been at most two years old when his parents were turned back into non-powered humanoid aliens. This could easily be perceived as them being killed, since the people they were died when Zordon did, and the people they were before that are put in their place, whilst her father, and her brother were not so lucky for unspecified reasons.

In Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie (1997), Divatox contacts Rita for advice on how to defeat the Power Rangers, but Rita retorts that if she had known how to do that she would not be in her current predicament, and she holds the phone up to Lord Zedd's face, who is heavily snoring in his sleep. In Power Rangers in Space, their relationship has become more hostile as seen their catty immature behaviour, before and after Dark Spectre turns up to the meeting, they act like teenagers as they fight for Dark Spectre's attention only to both get snubbed in favour of his disciple Astronema.

Rita Repulsa was played by Machiko Soga in Zyuranger footage, played by Carla Perez in U.S. footage, and played by Sydney native Julia Cortez in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie (1995). All her Power Rangers appearances are voiced by Barbara Goodson, who overdubs the actresses' lip movements with the unmistakable screechy voice that is among Rita's trademark characteristics.

Goldar[edit]

Goldar is a manticore-themed knight who serves as Rita Repulsa and Lord Zedd's right-hand man. In season one, he is a considerably more competent fighter, who is shown fighting alongside Scorpina. From season 2 onwards, he is depicted as considerably less capable, gradually transitioning to comic relief. Goldar frequently does battle with the megazord, during the first season, if the episode's monster or device had already been dispatched by the Rangers. When Lord Zedd arrives on the Moon, Goldar eagerly abandons Rita for Zedd, regaining his wings in the process. As Zedd's right-hand man, Goldar leads many missions for him. When Rita returns to the moon and marries Zedd, Goldar is forced to serve her once again alongside Zedd.

In both the series and the film, he is voiced by Kerrigan Mahan. In Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie, his suit actor is Kerry Casey.

Goldar appears as a secondary antagonist in the 2017 movie reboot with his vocal effects provided by Fred Tatasciore.

Goldar is set to return in Power Rangers Beast Morphers season 2 in a new appearance called Goldar Maximus.

Squatt and Baboo[edit]

Squatt is a servant of Lord Zedd and Rita Repulsa, the dimwitted sidekick of Baboo. Squatt is a short, blue-skinned hobgoblin-like creature with a large horn. He wears metal armor and is said to be a mix between a blueberry and a warthog. Squatt is rather excitable, and may act like an eager child when Rita has a plan or when the Rangers are having trouble in a battle. Squatt is easily frightened by his bosses' bad tempers. He is a coward, and rather than fight, he and Baboo often accompany Goldar, Scorpina, and monsters as they attack the Earth, cheering them on. However, he often goes to Earth when there is no fight going on, because his main duties are acting as a spy and saboteur, as shown in episodes like "Switching Places", "Foul Play in the Sky", "Calamity Kimberly", and "Rita's Seed of Evil". Squatt's birthplace is given as Myrgo, Venus.

Baboo is the more intelligent of a dimwitted duo consisting of him and Squatt. He is a tall, slim, black vampire that resembles a cross between a monkey and a vampire bat with crippled wings. Like Finster, he mainly works behind the lines. Though spineless and scatterbrained, he is highly creative. He serves as Rita's alchemist and potion maker, creating substances and devices for her to use. Notable creations include a time device, a punk potion, the monster Shellshock, and the Nasty Knight's sword. Baboo is rarely confident in his mistress' plans, but would never say this to her face. Like Squatt, he is somewhat cowardly, often going to Earth to scheme or cheer on Goldar and/or Scorpina in battle rather than taking part in a fight himself. Both Squatt and Baboo have a relationship with Scorpina reminiscent of a mean older sister bullying her younger brothers. Baboo had a great fear of Scorpina saying he remembered the terrible things she did. He asks Rita to keep her stinger away from him; Squatt recalls that Scorpina stung Baboo on the head and he complained for a week. Baboo's birthplace was given as the Planet of the Pongies.

When Lord Zedd took over as the main villain in the second season, Squatt and Baboo's roles were greatly reduced. Though still living in the palace, they mainly watch events in the throne room from behind a wall and offer occasional comments. Both participate in Zedd and Rita's wedding. They were later put back to work as saboteurs after Rita's return. In the third season, they are pure comic relief and occasionally are paired with Rito Revolto in schemes Rita involves them in.

Squatt and Baboo disappear during the Power Rangers Zeo series, when fleeing from the Machine Empire with their masters. Squatt was seen in "Countdown to Destruction". However, Squatt was never actually seen reduced to sand or purified by Zordon's wave. It can be assumed that Baboo met the same fate as Squatt.

Squatt was voiced by Michael Sorich and his suit actor is Minoru Watanabe. Baboo was voiced by Colin Philips and his suit actor was portrayed by Hideaki Kusaka (uncredited in season 1) Steve Andreno in Seasons 1–3 and later by Jason Ybarra in Seasons 3-Zeo.

Finster[edit]

Finster is a shy leprechaun-themed henchman of Rita Repulsa and Lord Zedd, though mostly the former. He resembles an anthropomorphic white Scottish Terrier. Finster's birthplace was given as the distant planet Claydoious.

During the first season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, he is primarily responsible for creating a new monster to battle the Power Rangers in each episode, as well as producing a regular supply of Putty Patrollers, although this function falls to Lord Zedd after his appearance. Finster does this by sculpting the monsters out of clay and "cooking" them in a special oven/kiln/machine called the Monstermatic in his workshop. Not only is he skilled at supplying monsters and henchmen for his leaders, he is also shown to be a skilled alchemist and potion maker (similar to Baboo) and inventor supplying many kinds of potions and gadgets. He is also extremely brilliant and somewhat all-knowing, as he is also able to provide wisdom for Rita and Zedd. Near the end of the episode "Crystal of Nightmares", it is implied by Goldar that Finster thought using the Crystal is a good idea, while Goldar denies it (calling him an "overgrown rat" in the process). He is the one responsible for making the suggestion that Alpha 5 be used in "delivering the message of evil", as Rita Repulsa had called it, in "The Wedding".

When Lord Zedd takes over as the main villain in Season 2, Finster is suddenly made obsolete. Zedd makes his own monsters, though after Pirantishead (Zedd's first monster) is destroyed, Finster comments that he could have done better with the monsters he could have created for Zedd. Finster laments his current status among the villains, missing the time when Rita was in charge. When Rita returns from her exile, Finster helps her return to power – restoring her size, making her look younger and creating a love potion to get Zedd to marry her so she can manipulate him before destroying him as revenge for casting her away in space. He quickly noticed the love potion he created had some side effects, when Rita had a hard time trying to manipulate Zedd as he devoted his time with her (as well as Rita inadvertently falling in love with Zedd as well).

In the third season and the Mighty Morphin' Alien Rangers mini-series, Finster returns to making monsters. His love potion is first accidentally revealed to Rito and eventually Goldar learns the truth. He forces Finster to make the antidote for Zedd. Though the antidote worked, he is just as surprised as anyone to find, though, that Zedd actually did love Rita.

At the start of the Zeo season, Finster joins Zedd and Rita in fleeing the oncoming forces of the Machine Empire. He later returns with his masters and builds several machines for them. In "Rangers of Two Worlds, Part 1", Finster makes a new Staff for Rita which is absurdly more powerful than the previous one, as it creates a monster that is too strong even for the Zeo Ultrazord. He also builds a bomb for Zedd's plan against the Machine Empire's leaders and Zedd successfully defeats them with it, proving to the machines that Zedd's party is their equal.

Finster is either reduced to sand or turned into a human, like several other villains were by Zordon's energy wave in Power Rangers in Space's two-part final episode "Countdown to Destruction".

While working for Rita and Zedd, Finster is never really an evil character, but rather an artist. He at one point even says, "sometimes it's no fun being a bad guy".

Finster is voiced by Robert Axelrod.

Scorpina[edit]

Scorpina is a human/scorpion hybrid and is one of Rita Repulsa's most ruthless and dangerous minions aside from Goldar.[4] Though the Scorpina/Goldar relationship in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers is significantly less developed than the Grifforzer/Lamie relationship of its Japanese counterpart, Goldar and Scorpina have shown affection toward each other where Goldar is shown to be protective of her. She has a human form (a beautiful Asian woman with long black hair wearing a somewhat tight golden scorpion armor), but has a hideous scorpion monster form when Rita makes her gigantic. Like Goldar, she often engages in giant battles with the Zords if the monster or device was already destroyed by the small rangers.

Very little is actually known about Scorpina. Her first appearance was in the "Green with Evil" story arc. She is an old friend of Rita Repulsa. Both Squatt and Baboo have a relationship with Scorpina reminiscent of a mean older sister bullying her younger brothers. Baboo had a great fear of Scorpina saying he remembered the terrible things she did. He asks Rita to keep her stinger away from him; Squatt recalls that Scorpina stung Baboo on the head and he complained for a week. Much like Goldar, she would often square off against Jason when sent to battle the Rangers and overpowered them with relative ease. Scorpina has a boomerang-like sword she used to attack the Rangers with. When in giant form, she loses any human appearance and often fights alongside Goldar. Scorpina once used her pet silkworm to fight the Power Rangers. Her personality is very cold and calculating compared to most season one villains, although she has moments of being less serious than Goldar, but despite that is seen almost always smiling (at least in her human form), even in battle. She also created a monster called the Rockstar.

In "The Mutiny, Part 1" at the start of the second season, Scorpina is seen among Rita's group. When Lord Zedd arrives and causes the palace to shake, Scorpina is seen going to help Rita who has just fallen to the ground. She then disappears after Zedd punished Rita for her failure by shrinking her and casting her away in a space dumpster. Though Scorpina's disappearance was unexplained, it was presumed she didn't want to work for Lord Zedd after what he did to Rita and kept her distance. She later resurfaces in "Goldar's Vice Versa" as a favor for Goldar. Scorpina has one chance to defeat the Rangers by Lord Zedd. To accomplish this, she poses as a human girl named Sabrina to try to ensnare Adam Park and turn him against his friends. This failed and Scorpina found a rivalry in Aisha Campbell, who suspected her from the start due to her rudeness with her and the other rangers. Revealing herself as Scorpina, she was forced to take both of them hostage, though the other Rangers arrived in time to save them. Unlike the last time, she squares off with Aisha, partially due to being foiled. She even grows to giant-size and battles the Thunder Megazord, with her and Goldar showing improved abilities all around (such as being unfazed by the Thunder Megazord finisher) but soon retreats after being overwhelmed by the new and improved Zords herself (particularly the Thunder Ultrazord).

This was her last appearance due to being unable to secure the actress for another appearance (which she was supposed to make in a three-parter called "Zordon I Shrunk The Rangers"). She was thus absent during the "Countdown to Destruction" finale of Power Rangers in Space, in which the majority of the series' surviving villains were either purified into human form or reduced to dust. An early concept for the series that became Power Rangers Ninja Storm would have featured Scorpina and other absent villains returning and menacing Earth.[5]

Scorpina was portrayed by Ami Kawai in Zyuranger footage and was voiced by Wendee Swan. The American actress who later portrayed her in "Goldar's Vice-Versa" was Sabrina Lu.

Scorpina was said to appear in the 2017 film as the main antagonist, along with Goldar.[6] The concept was scrapped as Rita Repulsa (Elizabeth Banks) would be the film's antagonist. Elements of Scorpina's appearance in the show were incorporated into Rita's costume, such as her armor.

Lokar[edit]

Appearing as a floating, demonic, ethereal, blue head, the powerful Lokar changes Mutitus to his more powerful form and assists in sending the Power Rangers to the Island of Illusions. He is an old friend of Rita's and she called on him for a favor to defeat the Rangers. After destroying Mutitus, the Power Rangers attack Lokar with the Ultrazord, but he manages to escape. Lokar is seen teleporting away just after the blast hits and Jason says, "We'll get him next time".

Lokar is later summoned again when Goldar goes into battle with his extremely powerful War Zord, Cyclopsis ("Doomsday, Parts 1 & 2"). Lokar, heavily scarred from the Ultrazord attack, recreates the War Zord when it falls to the Power Rangers' attack and then aids Cyclopsis in its next two battles against the Power Rangers, but disappears forever when Cyclopsis is destroyed by the Ultrazord. Early plans for the series that became Ninja Storm would have featured Lokar—like Scorpina—making a return appearance as a villain.

Lokar was portrayed by Masahiko Urano and voiced by Robert Axelrod.

Lord Zedd[edit]

Lord Zedd was the primary antagonist for the first 40 episodes of the second season and co-antagonist for the rest of season 2 and all of season 3.[7] When he first appeared in the second season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Zedd was quite furious with Rita's constant failures for being defeated by a bunch of children, even after she warned him about Zordon. Zedd has her punished by shrinking her and sealing her away in a space dumpster to travel for eternity. Despite his early defeats, Zedd's attack on Earth became progressively more violent and focused most of his attention on eliminating Tommy, whom he saw as Rita's biggest mistake. He succeeded in eliminating the Green Ranger powers with the help of a Green Crystal that serves to drain Tommy's powers as well as serving to power up his own brand of evil rangers. After both the crystal and Turbanshell were destroyed, he finally succeeded in ridding the Green Ranger's powers.

Eventually, Zedd realizes the warning Rita had given him was true and he was having the same difficulties in defeating the Rangers like she had experienced. In retaliation, he brought forth his personal zord, a large serpentine named Serpenterra. Despite the large zord's advantage against the Thunder Zords, it had a serious flaw in using too much of its energy, which infuriated Zedd to no end. He attempts to find an infinite power source for Serpenterra to no avail. Soon it came time for Zedd's Centennial Energy Recharge and while he undergoes it, Rita makes a secret return for revenge against him. Upon awakening under the love potion, Zedd immediately fell in love with Rita much to her delight and proposed to her. However, the love potion did not work as Rita hoped; she planned to turn Zedd sycophantic to her under the potion, but somehow he remains in control and attempted to dominate over Rita as a commanding husband. He even wants Rita to produce heirs for him, much to her hysterical outrage and leading her to order Finster to work on an antidote. After their wedding, they often bickered with each other when failing to overcome one another but remained together. Zedd became less serious about defeating the Rangers and more focused on his life with Rita, while Rita remains determined to defeat them with Zedd's aid. In time, Rita was unknowingly falling in love with Zedd too, and accepts her status as his wife and co-leader to their minions.

With Zedd and Rita side by side, the Rangers' battles were more difficult. Zedd and Rita's schemes together included creating a clone of the evil Tommy and sending the Rangers back into the past. Zedd also had a rivalry against Count Dregon. When his wife's brother, Rito Revolto, arrived on the moon (even with Tengas and a Vampirus as gifts) Lord Zedd was disgusted by the skeleton's stupidity, and would bellow with rage every time Rito called him "Ed". Rita's love potion was eventually removed from Zedd after Goldar used the antidote on him. However, to everyone's surprise, Zedd loved Rita on his own; his devotion to his wife was genuine from the start, and thus explaining why Rita had difficulty controlling him due to his love for her being based on free will; the antidote merely caused a momentary vertigo when used on him. During the Pink Ranger fiasco when Zedd had her held hostage to force the Rangers to use the Shogun Zords in his service, Lord Zedd battled Tommy personally to keep him from saving Kimberly from an alternate dimension. This marked the only time that Zedd had battled a Ranger personally, proving himself quite capable of holding his own, a trait passed down to his son in later years. Though Zedd easily gained the upper hand against the White Ranger, Tommy used Saba to shatter Zedd's Z-Staff, forcing him to retreat.

When Master Vile arrived on the moon, Lord Zedd was pushed to the side as Vile took over in his search for the Zeo Crystal. He expressed disdain for his father-in-law, who constantly put him down. Once Vile left after his army was defeated by the Aquitian Rangers, Zedd was ecstatic, and he resumed his attacks on Earth. The Rangers had been turned to children due to Vile's Orb of Doom and all that stood in Zedd's way were the Aquitian Rangers. Zedd managed to find a map of the Ranger's Command Center, pointing out a weak point. He sent Goldar and Rito in to plant a bomb and steal the Zeo Crystal before the Orb of Doom's magic was undone. Though unable to stop the rangers in undoing the damage Master Vile did, Zedd was able to destroy the Command Center. But before they could take advantage of it, the Machine Empire arrived and attacked. Zedd and Rita were forced to retreat, taking Serpentera to the M51 Galaxy where they would stay with Master Vile, to Zedd's dismay. They soon returned, however, in a motorhome, plotting to overthrow King Mondo and destroy the Empire. The two forces clashed on several occasions, neither gaining much ground. At one point, Prince Gasket had Tommy brainwashed and closed a dimensional portal to his arena to prevent the Rangers (Minus Jason, who was at the arena) from saving him, but Zedd had Finster help get the rangers to the arena to prevent a Machine victory. After a series of failed attempts, they finally managed to destroy the Royal House of Gadgetry with a bomb in the shape of a gift.

Zedd and Rita were mysteriously absent during the Power Rangers: Turbo Season, and fans have speculated that a "gap" between Power Rangers Zeo and Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie reveals what occurred after Rita and Zedd had regained control of the moon from The Machine Empire. Events in Forever Red suggest that Zedd at some point launched an attack on Earth with a significantly more powerful Serpentera, only to be defeated again by the Zeo Rangers. Disillusioned and convinced he would never defeat them, Zedd and Rita retreated for good. It was also hinted that somewhere between this, Rita had given birth to Thrax, forcing her and Zedd to remain in retirement.

Lord Zedd, along with Rita, makes a cameo appearance in Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie, when Divatox calls Rita for advice on how to deal with the Power Rangers; Rita asks Divatox if she would allow herself to be subjected to Zedd's snoring if she knew how to defeat the Rangers, advising the other villain to flee, rather than fight. After many successive failures, this was the best advice the villainess could get.

A year later, Zedd and Rita attended Dark Specter's conference on the Cimmerian Planet, Zedd toasting to Dark Specter's capture of Zordon and takeover of the universe, and unsuccessfully tried to attack Andros when he was caught spying. Months later, they invaded the Vica Galaxy and quickly conquered it, defeating and capturing the Gold Ranger in the process. When Zordon's energy wave washed over them and their army, Zedd was spared, transformed into a human being.[8] His love for Rita seemed to remain and the two danced together in the remnants of their army, much to the confusion and relief of the Gold Ranger.

In Power Rangers Beast Morphers. Lord Zedd's staff is one of the many villain relics in Ryjack's collection that are acquired by Venjix/Evox and his minions. Evox plans to revive and gather the most notorious villains in the universe with Ryjack's reanimizer after reviving Sledge's Crew and Snide. Lord Zedd was one of the candidates to be revived (another being Astronema, Koragg, The Knight Wolf and Psycho Red), but were debunked due to backfired reasons until Evox decide to revive Zedd's former loyal servant Goldar instead. Zedd was Scrozzle's choice until Robo-Roxy reminds everyone of what he and Rita did to King Mondo and his family in the day after Jason return the Gold Zeo powers back to Trey of Triforia, out of fear that Zedd would secretly plan to betray Evox as well once revived.

He was performed by Ed Neil in the TV series, Mark Ginther in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie, and voiced by Robert Axelrod. In the video game Power Rangers: Super Legends, he is voiced by Steve Blum.

Dark Rangers[edit]

The Dark Rangers are the bad counterparts of the Powers Rangers. There are two versions of them:

  • The first Dark Rangers are a bunch of punks named Justin (portrayed by Patrick Wolf), Zane (portrayed by Ogie Banks), Bobby (portrayed byAaron Atinsky), Tina (portrayed by Jhoanna Trias), and Kristen (portrayed by ???) who just enrolled at Angel Grove High School and first appeared to the Rangers after knocking around Bulk and Skull. Lord Zedd took interest in them. Before both groups can spar, they are teleported to Otherworld by Lord Zedd. Using a Green Crystal he filled, Lord Zedd transformed them into the Dark Rangers as the Rangers tried inform them what Lord Zedd would do with them to no avail. When the Green Ranger destroyed the Green Crystal, the punks were returned to Angel Grove in a normal state. They made amends with the Rangers.[a]
  • In the 1995 comic series, another version of the Dark Rangers was formed in the issue "Dark Thunder." Lord Zedd harvested the energies of the old Dino Coins to create another version of the Dark Rangers who would control the rebuilt Thunderzords. Due to Angel Grove not having any worthy bad people, Lord Zedd had to find worthy people around the world. He gained a bully from Zimbabwe named Farai Jukwa as his Red Dark Ranger, a looter from Japan named Osama Tezuka as his Black Dark Ranger, an avaricious man from the United States named Stanford Winner as his Blue Dark Ranger, a gang member from Colombia named Nelida Valensis as his Yellow Dark Ranger, and a pickpocket from France named Marie Claire le Monde as his Pink Dark Ranger. Their Dark Ranger forms resemble the original morphed forms of the Rangers. Following the first fight, the Dark Rangers summoned the rebuilt Thunder Megazord to fight the Rangers in the Ninja Megazord as a rebuilt White Tigerzord appeared. When the Ninja Falconzord was being formed, the Dark Rangers and their Zords got away. Zordon commented that a Dark White Ranger would be impossible to create since the powers of the White Ranger can't be corrupted by evil.

Tom Oliver (clone)[edit]

Tom Oliver (portrayed by Jason David Frank) is an exact clone of Tommy Oliver that was created and put under a spell by the Wizard of Deception to serve as an evil Green Ranger variant for Lord Zedd and Rita Repulsa. He is referred to as "Tom" to differentiate himself from Tommy Oliver. Tom wears a green bandana with a ponytail behind his head. Being Tommy's perfect duplicate, Tom can easily deceive the Power Rangers to believe that Tommy has betrayed them to their enemies. He also has all of Tommy's tactics and training along with his former Green Ranger powers, allowing him to be able to anticipate most of his doppelgänger's actions. Under the Wizard of Deception's powers, the Dragonzord's strength level is on par with the White Ranger's Tigerzord, but only because the White Ranger's power was temporarily weakened by the Wizard.

In a battle with some Putties, Tommy was knocked unconscious, and the Wizard cut a lock from his hair and turned him into an evil clone, imbued with the restored Green Ranger powers. The clone tricked the other Rangers into meeting him in an isolated spot, where the Wizard of Deception sent them back to colonial Angel Grove. He then confronted Tommy, who was suffering a headache, caused by some of his powers being used to recreate the Green Ranger. The two Rangers fought each other to a draw until the Wizard intervened, zapping Tommy with his wand, causing him to demorph and lie in a coma. The Green Ranger then went to the Command Center to threaten Zordon, and then unleashed the Dragonzord on Angel Grove.

When Tommy was revived to full strength, he summoned his White Tigerzord to defend the city, but Dragonzord, energized by the Wizard's evil, soundly beat him. Tommy then stole the Wizard's wand, went back to rescue the other Rangers, and brought them back to summon the Thunder Megazord and deal with the Dragonzord. He then destroyed the Wizard, breaking the spell on the Green Ranger, whom he now called Tom.

Tom, much like Tommy was, was sick with remorse after being freed from the spell, but Tommy convinced him that he could still do good based on his own experience. Tom broke the spell on the Dragonzord and sent him back to the sea. The White and Green Rangers went back in time to colonial Angel Grove to destroy the Rat Monsters the Wizard had created to torture the other Rangers. Afterwards, despite Tommy's attempts to persuade Tom to join the Power Rangers, Tom decided to stay in colonial Angel Grove so he could make up for his past deeds, rejecting the restored Green Ranger powers, therefore Tom's power coin was removed from circulation, which makes the appearance of the Mighty Morphin’ Green Ranger in Super Megaforce's legendary war confusing, since Tommy's head is overlaid with a white ranger helmet when he saves a kid left in a car hanging over the edge of a long fall, despite this Green Ranger still appears to help defeat the Armada even though we don't see the White Ranger.[9]

Rito Revolto[edit]

Rito Revolto is a Gashadokuro/skeleton who was Rita Repulsa's younger brother, Master Vile's son with an unknown female humanoid and the secondary henchman for her and Lord Zedd in the third season, often partnered with Goldar and a few times with Baboo and Squatt(whom occasionally were The Three Stooges of the PR verse).[10] He is famous for his introduction saga entitled Ninja Quest, where he destroyed the Thunderzords. He remained in Lord Zedd's palace afterwards and he constantly called Lord Zedd "Ed", which, along with Rito's stupidity, angered Zedd and causing him to yell at Rito to get his name right. Rito and Goldar placed an explosive device in the bowels of the Command Center and stole the completed Zeo Crystal before the device detonated, but they dropped their crystal on their escape.

In "Power Rangers Zeo," Rito and Goldar had lost their memories and were wandering around Angel Grove. They were taken in by Bulk and Skull as their butlers in exchange for food and shelter. They were later found by Zedd and Rita, who after confronting them for their failure in not procuring the Zeo Crystal, restored their memories and returned to the Moon. In Zedd and Rita's first attempt to overthrow the Machine Empire, they sent Rito and Goldar to Earth and instructed them to launch Louie Kaboom (a renegade robot) into space as their first attempt to avoid Queen Machina from tracing the robot back to them. Though Rito succeeded, he subsequently lost the remote to control Kaboom and this earned both him and Goldar their fury because it left them with no chance of controlling Kaboom. Rito is shown to be a backseat driver and this got him in trouble with both Master Vile and Lord Zedd.

Though he was not seen in "Countdown to Destruction", he was possibly reduced to sand by Zordon's Wave or he was purified since Rita Repulsa and Lord Zedd were purified as well.

Rito made a cameo in the footage in Power Rangers Beast Morphers in Making Bad.

Rito Revolto was voiced by Bob Papenbrook.[b]

Master Vile[edit]

Master Vile (voiced by Tom Wyner) was the father of Rita Repulsa and Rito Revolto and was based on the character Yōkai Daimaō, the ultimate antagonist in Kakuranger. He was a tall demon-like being with large ear-like appendages and wore a dark cloak that had snakes seen emerging from it and wielded a magic wand. His home planet is called Gamma Vile, which was in the M51 galaxy. His personality is that of a crochety old man. He's a very cunning villain overall, but is very comical. He also appears to be something of a coward. Master Vile and Lord Zedd have an obvious dislike for each other. This is evident when he found out Rita married Zedd and was very furious with her for it. The angry Master Vile yelled at her for being an idiot in marrying him and pointing out that she could've found someone else much better. Zedd was offended and called him out for the whole thing. He pointed out that at least he has the Falcon Zord and Ninjor, much to Master Vile's disbelief.

Master Vile arrived on the moon in search of the legendary Zeo Crystal during the third season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. He very nearly succeeded with the aid of an energy-draining monster he created and called the Blue Globber. After capturing Ninjor, the Crystal and the Rangers' Zords, Vile decided to throw an "End of the World Party" in the Angel Grove Youth Center before he would use the Zeo crystal to destroy the earth. However, Vile throwing his party gave the rangers the time and opportunity to locate and retrieve their Zords. Vile grew to giant size after Ninjor regained his energy and joined the Rangers in their battle against the Globber. Although his monster was destroyed, Vile survived the finishing attacks of both the Shogun and Ninja Megafalconzord, and still managed to retreat despite not appearing to be that badly hurt. On his retreat to the moon, he considered the failure nothing more than a minor setback and decided to stay.

Vile later summoned his old ally Dischordia (a monster that uses dance to control her victims) to battle the Rangers, and she nearly succeeded in taking control of the Rangers' minds. Vile was foiled once again, as Dischordia met her end courtesy of Ninjor and the Shogun Ultrazord.

Vile then summoned the Orb of Doom to the Earth, which he used to revert the Rangers to powerless children. He prevented Lord Zedd, Rita, Goldar, and Rito from destroying Angel Grove, revealing that he had more plans for the Earth. He sent a selection of monsters to invade the planet, led by his field general, Professor Longnose. When the invasion was thwarted by the Aquitian Rangers, Vile threw a tantrum and Rita reprimanded him for embarrassing her. Fed up, Vile fled back to his home galaxy, where he claimed "the bad guy always win". Zedd was overly happy to be rid off Vile to the point he actually kissed an annoyed Goldar.

After being overthrown by the Machine Empire at the start of Power Rangers Zeo, Rita called her father and begged him to let them stay with him. Vile reluctantly agreed knowing that his daughter would be bringing "that husband of hers" and told them not to wake him when they arrive. Master Vile also stated that the Machine Empire was worse than he was.

Master Vile appeared in the Power Rangers Zeo comic book, in which the forces of the Machine Empire attacked his planet looking for Lord Zedd, who was in possession of the Ninja Power Coin energies after he and Rita destroyed them in the television series. In the end, Master Vile handed the energies over to the Machine Empire despite the Rangers' attempts to stop the Machine Empire from getting them. The Power Coin energies subplot went unresolved and has since been deemed non-canon.

Master Vile was last seen on the Cimmerian Planet, attending Dark Specter's conference. He was most likely purified (like his daughter) or destroyed by Zordon's Wave during the battles that succeeded the conference.

In the Power Rangers: Operation Overdrive episode "Once a Ranger", it is revealed that he has a grandson named Thrax.

Vile was the first villain to receive the "semi-independent villain" position – a role which would later be filled by Louie Kaboom, Prince Gasket, General Havoc, Captain Mutiny, Mandilok, and some of the monsters in S.P.D.

  • The Monsters that attended Master Vile's End of the World Party at the Youth Center are Fighting Flea, Slippery Shark, Oysterizer, Robogoat, Invenusable Flytrap, Vampirus, Artistmole, Centiback, Hate Master, Miss Chief, Incisorator, See Monster, Garbage Mouth, Brick Bully's second form, and Dischordia.
  • Monsters at Master Vile's conference are Crabbie Cabbie, See Monster, Brick Bully's second form, Miss Chief, Lanterra, the as-yet-unintroduced Arachnofiend, an unnamed clown dog monster, an unnamed flat-topped bluish-white clay monster, an unnamed furry brown tiki-masked monster, and an unnamed swirl-textured dustcloth monster.

Hydro Hog[edit]

Hydro Hog is the Umibōzu-themed nemesis of the Aquitian Rangers and the main antagonist of Mighty Morphin Alien Rangers. He was known as the Emperor of the Dark Waters on Aquitar for his evil ways. He was known for having destroyed many planets. His main power is to consume all the water available before the Aquitian Rangers can get to it, leaving them dehydrated. Rita Repulsa and Lord Zedd sought out Hydro Hog's help when the Aquitian Rangers proved to be too much against them on their own.

Hydro Hog was too powerful for the Aquitian Rangers to destroy, and he was the only villain capable of withstanding the Shogun Megazord's Fire Blade, actually completely blocking the sword before it hit him. However, he was eventually defeated by the Shogun Megafalconzord. He was the first archvillain to be destroyed in battle, later followed by King Mondo. Hydro Hog is also the only monster and/or archvillain to be destroyed by the Shogun Megafalconzord.

Hydro Hog is voiced by Brad Orchard.[c]

Foot Soldiers[edit]

Putty Patrol[edit]

The Putty Patrol is the standard foot soldiers deployed by Rita Repulsa during the first season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. They are based on the Golem Soldiers in Zyuranger and are made from clay. Though neither particularly strong, intelligent, nor resilient, their basic power of numbers allow them to be a regular challenge to the Power Rangers. Occasionally, some of them were encountered that seemed a little smarter (Jason at one point fought one that was able to drive a car). Putties are mass-produced in Finster's Monstermatic through use of steam-pressured molds and then sent through the Monstermatic in large numbers. Putties do have some manner of spoken language, though it is incomprehensible to humans, coming across as strings of garbled noises.[11]

There had been some special Putty Patrollers that had been exclusive to each of Rita Repulsa's monsters.

  • In "High Five", the Skeleton Warriors that assist Bones are skeleton-themed Putty Patrollers.
  • In "Trick or Treat" Pumpkin Rapper is assisted by Putty Patrollers who have pumpkins for heads.
  • In "Football Season", Rhinoblaster has some Putty Patrollers that are trained at football and make up his football team.
  • In "Mighty Morphin' Mutants", Goldar trains six Putty Patrollers to fight like the Power Rangers. When one of them fails the training due to its clumsiness, Goldar teleports that Putty Patroller back into Finster's clay pot. The other five Putty Patrollers are given the Badges of Darkness which turn them into the Mutant Rangers, evil counterparts of the Power Rangers. These Putties become the Mutant Rangers while Finster creates Commander Crayfish to use in place of their Red one, after Goldar had destroyed the Red Badge of Darkness. The Female Mutants are destroyed by the Power Blaster while the Male ones are later destroyed along with Commander Crayfish by the Ultrazord

The Putty Patrollers appear in Power Rangers with their vocal effects provided by Fred Tatasciore. They are redesigned as stone golems that can be formed out of anything that is made of rock.[12]

The original Putties are set to reappear in Power Rangers Beast Morphers.

There are different variants of the Putties:

  • The Super Putties are the stronger versions of regular Putty Patrollers. They were mentioned in "Life's a Masquerade" and later appeared in "Gung Ho!" The Super Putties were made from the super putty that Rita Repulsa and her minions mined.
  • Bones is accompanied by skeleton-themed Putties called Skeleton Warriors.
  • Pumpkin Rapper is accompanied by pumpkin-headed Putties.
  • Rhinoblaster is accompanied by football-themed Putties.
  • The Z-Putties are Lord Zedd's own army of Putties. Despite being stronger than Rita's Putties, their main weakness is the "Z" on their chests which causes them to shatter/explode when hit. Following this discovery, Z-Putties become less effective than Rita's as Zedd sacrifices durability for strength. In season three, the Putties and Z-Putties are replaced by Rito's own army of foot soldiers the Tenga Warriors. In the Power Rangers in Space episode "Flashes of Darkonda", a Z-Putty is seen at the Onyx Tavern. An army of Z-Putties assists Rita and Zedd in their invasion on Triforia during "Countdown to Destruction".

Tenga Warriors[edit]

The Tenga Warriors are Lord Zedd and Rita Repulsa's new crow-like foot soldiers with them being wedding gifts from Rito Revolto. Rita states that Tengas are the most vicious warriors in the universe; however, the clumsiness her Tenga display suggests she got a bad batch. They are the only grunt soldiers to have their own theme song "Tenga Bye Bye". Throughout Season 3, the Rangers are never seen battling these grunt soldiers in civilian form, but used their Ninja Ranger or Power Ranger forms instead, implying the Tenga are strong enough to out-match the rangers without their powers. The Tengas also have the power of speech. The Tenga Warriors effectively replace the Putties because they cannot be destroyed easily as they can.

In Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie, Ivan Ooze had virtually identical soldiers called the Tengu Warriors, but created from his ooze instead of eggs. Like their TV counterparts, the Tengus are shown to have the power of speech.

In the Power Rangers S.P.D. episodes "Shadow" Pt. 2 and "Wired" Pt. 2, a Tenga is seen as a patron at Piggy's diner.

Ivan Ooze[edit]

Ivan Ooze is a fictional character in the Power Rangers universe, who appears as the primary antagonist in the film Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie (1995). He was played by Paul Freeman.[13] Though Ivan is depicted as pure evil, he has a comical and charming side to him shown throughout the movie, typical of other villains in the series. He has his own troops of soldiers including Ooze-Men that are easily destroyed by the Rangers and winged creatures called Tengoo (based on the Japanese myth of the Tengu) which he blew up when they failed to kill the Power Rangers.

Ivan Ooze was a tyrant 6,000 years ago, until he was imprisoned in an egg-shaped Hyperlock Chamber by Zordon and a small group of young warriors, who presumably were the precursors to the modern Power Rangers. When his hyperlock chamber is unearthed by an Angel Grove construction crew, Ivan was released by Lord Zedd after 6,000 years of imprisonment. Apparently, he was most angered by the boredom of his lengthy imprisonment, being forced to miss several disasters throughout Earth's history such as the Black Death, the Spanish Inquisition, and the 1981 reunion of The Brady Bunch. He also claims that he "had a Charley horse since the Renaissance". Ivan proceeds to demolish the Command Center and fatally injure Zordon and Alpha 5, leaving the Rangers powerless to morph, fight or even call their Zords.

After rendering the Rangers powerless, Ivan travels to the moon, and betrays both Lord Zedd and Rita Repulsa, trapping them within a snowglobe, much to their dismay. Their henchmen Goldar and Mordant then swear allegiance to Ivan rather than join Rita and Zedd in captivity. Ivan then begins brainwashing the parents of Angel Grove into digging up and repairing his Ecto-Morphicons (large insect-like machines similar to the Rangers' Zords) Hornitor and Scorpitron which he turns loose to rampage in Angel Grove. After this, he tells the parents to go and "leap to their doom", but the parents' children, with some help from Bulk and Skull, stop them.

After the Rangers gain the Great Power, they return to Angel Grove and battle Ivan's machines with their new Ninja Zords. Using these Zords, they are able to destroy Scorpitron. An enraged Ivan combines with Hornitor, and takes on the Rangers himself. The battle progresses into outer space, and though Ivan consistently has the upper hand, he is destroyed when the Ninja Falcon-Megazord knees him in the groin, which sends him flying into the path of Ryan's Comet, which happened to be passing the Earth at this time.

Mordant[edit]

Mordant is a warthog henchman in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie. Together with Goldar, he defects from Lord Zedd to join Ivan Ooze, when Ivan imprisons Lord Zedd and Rita Repulsa in a snowglobe. After the destruction of Ivan Ooze, when Goldar claims he is now the leader of the group, Mordant follows him willingly, until Rita and Zedd return from their imprisonment.

Mordant is not featured in the television series in any manner and is created for the film, but he also appears in Marvel Comics' adaptation of the film and television series. In an early draft of the script as well as in some merchandise, he is identified as Goldar's second cousin three times removed on his mother's side visiting for the summer.[original research?]

Mordant is performed by Jean Paul Bell and voiced by Martin G. Metcalf.

Oozemen[edit]

The Oozemen are Ivan Ooze's foot soldiers that are made from his own ooze. Their name is not mentioned in the movie proper, but they are instead referred to as Ivan's "kids" just seconds before he forms them. The Oozemen proved to be too strong for the Rangers unmorphed, forcing them to call upon their powers. They are highly resilient to pain and fatigue, but if smashed by something hard enough, they are reduced to ooze.

In the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis and Sega Game Gear adaptions of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie, they are officially called Oozemen.

Monsters[edit]

The monsters of Season One are created by Finster using his Monstermatic to bring his clay models to life; although Rita has brought forth monsters through summoning spells as well. They are adapted from the monsters featured in Kyōryū Sentai Zyuranger with the exception of the last 15, which were part of specially created Japanese footage for Power Rangers which fans call "Zyu2". To make them grow, Rita throws her wand to Earth which emits energy that causes the Earth to shake and split open, releasing a steam that then enlarges the monster.

  • Bones (voiced by Tom Wyner) – Bones is a skeleton monster created by Finster. Bones could detach his head and have it fly. He also could recreate himself after falling apart and jump long distances. If his head is destroyed, the rest of him follows. Trini dropped Bones' head into a fiery crack in the ground which destroys him.
  • Giant (voiced by Tom Wyner) – A giant knight that is summoned by Rita after Bones' destruction. This monster was destroyed by the Tyrannosaurus Dinozord.
  • Mighty Minotaur (voiced by Tom Wyner) A minotaur monster created by Finster that wielded a spiked club and a shield. This monster was destroyed by the Power Blaster. Ironically, he proved too powerful as a giant for the megazord, so Rita shrunk him back down after the Rangers escaped to learn how to beat him.
  • King Sphinx (voiced by Richard Cansino) – A sphinx monster created by Finster with powerful wings that blow away the Rangers. This monster was destroyed by the Megazord.
  • Gnarly Gnome (voiced by Steve Kramer) – A musical goblin/gnome monster in Viking attire created by Finster. He had the ability to become invisible and use his accordion to hypnotize people. Kimberly's deaf friend was immune, allowing her to inform the Rangers. This monster was destroyed by the Megazord.
  • Pudgy Pig (voiced by Dave Mallow) – A ravenous pig monster created by Finster. He can eat anything, but cannot handle spicy food; the rangers took advantage of this to make him spit up their weapons. Destroyed by the Power Blaster. Rita later recreated Pudgy Pig in "A Pig Surprise" by casting a spell on a normal pig a disguised Putty Patroller left at a pet adoption drive. However, the rangers were able to reverse the spell.
  • Eye Guy (voiced by Richard Cansino) – A multi-eyed monster that is prone to eye-related puns. He imprisoned Billy's friend Willy within the dimension inside his main eye so Rita could use his genius. This monster was destroyed by the Megazord. Keen-eyed viewers of the Power Rangers series may notice that Eye Guy has made many appearances throughout the series: he was one of the illusions seen by the Rangers in "Island of Illusion," ambushing the Rangers at the Spectre Theater and attended Rita and Zedd's wedding in the three-part episode "The Wedding," was among the Machine Empire's army of monsters during the two-part Power Rangers in Space episode "Countdown to Destruction," and was one of the monsters seen in the Shadow World's tomb in the Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue episode "The Fate of Lightspeed" Pt. 2.
  • Terror Toad (voiced by Michael Sorich) – A toad monster created by Finster. He swallowed most of the Rangers. A picture of each Ranger's helmet appeared on his belly when they were swallowed. Destroyed by Pink Ranger's Power Bow when its arrow was shot into his mouth.
  • Madame Woe (voiced by Alex Borstein) – An elemental ghost-themed sorceress monster who was an old friend of Rita Repulsa. She mistook Billy's girlfriend for a Power Ranger (due to Billy having just been at the location she was sent to), and captured her. This monster was destroyed by the Power Blaster.
  • Mr. Ticklesneezer (voiced by Tom Wyner) – A troll/elf monster created by Squatt from Trini's doll in her dream. He has the power to shrink anything and put it in a bottle as part of his collection. Rita either intimidated him or cast spell, given she repeatedly got in his face while instructing him. The dream ended as Trini persuaded Mr. Ticklesneezer to put everything back.
  • Snizzard (voiced by Bryan Cranston in the first appearance, Bob Papenbrook in the third appearance) – A Ladon-themed snake/lizard monster with cobra-headed hands, snake-like piles for legs, and an apple-shaped part on his head that was created by Finster. This monster was destroyed by Pink Ranger's Power Bow, by shooting the apple on his head. In "Zedd's Monster Mash," Doomstone revived Snizzard to attack the Rangers in Lord Zedd's Haunted Forest. In the three-part episode "The Wedding," Snizzard was recreated by Finster to ambush the Rangers at the Spectre Theater and attend the wedding of Lord Zedd and Rita Repula. He did interact with Saliguana during the wedding and was not seen fighting the Rangers.
  • Chunky Chicken (voiced by Robert Axelrod) – A chicken monster created by Finster to kidnap a girl Trini and Kimberly were looking after, so she could open a box containing the morphin eggs. This monster was destroyed by the Megazord.
  • Genie (voiced by Tom Wyner) – An evil wolf genie released by Squatt and Baboo after they obtained his lamp from Canine 4 of the Wolf's Head Galaxy. Rita enlarges him differently, instead shooting a blast from her scepter. He disappeared when Billy teleported the lamp away from Earth.
  • Knasty Knight (voiced by Tom Wyner) – An evil knight summoned by Rita as a twisted idea of a birthday present for Zack. He was originally created by Rita using an evil spell and was first used on Tarmac 3 where he made "space dust" out of its finest warrior. This monster was destroyed by the Megazord.
  • Pineoctopus (voiced by Mike Reynolds) – A pineapple monster with plant-like tendrils created by Finster. He could turn anybody his spore touched into cardboard cut-outs of themselves (only water could undo the damage). The Rangers suits made them immune to the dust. This monster was destroyed by the Megazord.
  • Dark Warrior (voiced by Tom Wyner) – A stealthy ninja monster created by Finster. He kidnapped Trini's scientist uncle for his invisibility potion; however, it had been accidentally left at the Youth Center, making the kidnapping pointless. This monster was destroyed by the Megazord.
  • Shellshock (voiced by Richard Epcar) – A turtle monster created by Squatt and Baboo. Shellshock had a traffic light atop his body which created speed and freeze spells; Trini was forced to constantly move, while Billy, Zack and Kimberly were frozen in time. For hand weapons, he had a hook and a baseball bat with a ball, as well as a large cannon in his shell. Rita was quite proud of this monster, as he managed to win a fight with the Rangers. This monster was destroyed by the Dragonzord and the Tyrannosaurus Dinozord.
  • Spidertron (voiced by Tom Wyner) – A spider monster created by Finster when Rita heard of Zack's fear of bugs (especially spiders). He was hidden in a copy of a park statue until Zack blasted the copy apart. Despite his name, he appears completely organic. This monster was destroyed by the Dragonzord's Battle Mode.

  • Rockstar (voiced by Tony Oliver) – A rock monster created by Scorpina. He can fire boulders that pinned his victims under them. This monster was destroyed by the Mirror of Destruction.
  • Samurai Fan Man (voiced by Tom Wyner) – A samurai monster created by Finster. He trapped Kimberly in a different dimension inside his jar, so she would disappear after an amount of time passed. This monster was destroyed by the Ultrazord.
  • Weaveworm (voiced by Richard Cansino) – A silkworm monster created by Finster and used by Scorpina. He was used during Rita's day off when she did not attack Earth. This monster was destroyed by the Mega Dragonzord.
  • Babe Ruthless (voiced by Richard Epcar) – A one-horned baseball-themed pixie/ogre monster with hooves and a pointy tail created by Finster.

This monster was destroyed by the Dragonzord's Battle Mode.
  • Fang (voiced by Michael Sorich) – A monster created by Finster that was obsessed with Gooney Bird eggs. He could be manipulated by promising him said eggs or enrage him by destroying the eggs. This monster was destroyed by the Ultrazord.

  • Hatchasaurus (voiced by Kirk Thornton in the first appearance, Steve Kramer in the second appearance) – A bird/dinosaur monster created by Finster. No matter how much the Power Rangers had destroyed Hatchasaurus, Cardiatron keeps reviving him stronger than ever until Hatchasaurus was in his second form complete with horns and spikes. This monster was destroyed by the Ultrazord the first time. Terror Blossom later revived Hatchasaurus. This monster was destroyed by the Thunder Megazord. The second time he was revived thanks to Cardiatron, Hatchasaurus was destroyed by the White Tigerzord after he was weakened by the Thunder Megazord. Hatchasaurus was later in the Power Ranger Lightspeed Rescue episode "The Fate of Lightspeed" Pt. 2 as one of the monsters in the Shadow World.
    • Cardiatron (voiced by Richard Cansino) – A magical computer heart that recreates Hatchasaurus every time he was destroyed. Destroyed by Red Ranger using the Dragon Shield. Cardiatron was revived by Terror Blossom only to be destroyed again.
  • Polluticorn (voiced by Michael Sorich) – A winged unicorn monster with dragon-like hands and feet who was created by Finster. He was sent to litter the planet in response to the recycling drive. However, he is never seen causing pollution. This monster was destroyed by the Megazord.
  • Twin Man (voiced by Bryan Cranston) – A reflective monster created by Finster. He used his powers to turn the Putties into duplicates of the Rangers and took the guise of the Red Ranger as part of a plot to give the Power Rangers and their civilian identities a bad reputation. They first started by getting the Rangers put in detention while causing trouble in their civilian forms and then attacking the city in their Ranger forms, forcing the real Rangers to set up a quick scam to make Bulk and Skull (who they were also serving detention with) think they were still in the room while they left to defeat their doubles. This monster was destroyed by the Power Blaster.
  • Goatan (voiced by Richard Epcar as the lion head, Tony Oliver as the goat head) – Goatan is a Chimera monster with a lion head, arms, and torso, a goat head on the chest and goat legs, dragon-like wings on its back, and a snake tail.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ According to stunt coordinator Jeff Pruitt, there were plans for a fight between the Rangers and the Dark Rangers. The idea was scrapped because the Dark Ranger suits were too low quality as the crew has imagined and the fact that they are repainted from some Z-Putty suits.
  2. ^ He was based on the character Gashadokuro who was the son of Master Vile's Japanese equivalent in Kakuranger. Unlike Gashadokuro/Young Noble Junior, Rito is portrayed as moronic and bumbling.
  3. ^ Hydro Hog was based on the Kakuranger monster Umibōzu who was originally a one-shot villain.
  4. ^ In the original version, Mutitus' Japanese equivalent was what the Japanese equivalent of Frankenstein's Monster became after his first defeat.
  5. ^ In Dairanger, Skelerena's Japanese equivilent is the monster form of Demon-Fist Master Jin Matoba called Garouki.
  6. ^ While the Tube Monster resembled Pipebrain, both their Japanese equivalents are separate monsters.
  7. ^ The Rat Monsters were originally intended to be used as Ivan Ooze's henchmen in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie, but the crew they felt too cheap for the movie. They instead decided to use them in the TV show, so the costumes wouldn't go to waste.
  8. ^ The Snow Monster is a recolored and fur-added version of Primator.
  9. ^ Parts of Turkey Jerk's suit originally belonged to Chunky Chicken (now unplucked and wearing leather).
  10. ^ In Dairanger, this monster was the masked appearance of the main villain named Lieutenant Colonel Shadam.
  11. ^ Repellator is a recolored version of Silver Horns with a long tongue added.
  12. ^ In Kakuranger, he is the herald of Master Vile's counterpart.
  13. ^ Incisorator's suit is a hybrid of three monster suits: he has the head of Kakuranger monster Nurarihyon (unused in this season), the partially-recolored body of the as-yet-unintroduced Merrick the Barbaric, and the cape of Dairanger monster Birdcage Vagabond (unused in Season Two).
