To go to Earth to make the planet Rita's, Goldar attacked Angel Grove, the city near which the Command Center was located and from which
the five chosen Ranger teens originated; with almost no exceptions, all
future non-planetwide villain attacks on Earth up through 643-CTD2 would be directed at Angel Grove.
According to Zordon, the battle between good and evil began millions of years ago.
To distract the Rangers from the Green Candle, the giant Cyclops monster attacked a city
near Angel Grove; this was the only time
that a non-planetwide attack on Earth was ever directed somewhere other than Angel Grove or just outside Angel Grove prior to 643-CTD2.
After Zedd had scolded Rita for being defeated by the Power Rangers, who were, as he said, "mere children"; he then scoffed at her daring to call herself an empress of evil.
Wanting a new queen, Zedd told Goldar to lure Kimberly to the "dark side."
Zedd planned to return Tommy to the "dark side" to become his evil heir.
Planning to create three evil warriors, Zedd told Goldar to lure Rocky, Adam, and Aisha to the "dark side."
Zordon said the results could be disastrous if they allowed Rocky, Adam, and Aisha to be turned to the "dark side."
Goldar told Adam to cross over to the "evil side."
robotic drone on the bridge of Count
called Dregon the "lord of evil."
Finster called Rita the empress of evil.
Outside Santa's workshop, Rito tried to shoot his "laser" from his sword, but
it only fizzled with red energy, as, like the teens, he was powerless (except for teleportation) near Santa's workshop due to the Earth's polarity and a crosscurrent of holiday
In a cavern somewhere beneath the surface of the
moon, Master Vile,
with blue and yellow energy snakes flowing from his right and left
hands, respectively, called forth, "Forces darker than the farthest
regions of the universe, hear my call! I
command you, respond! (ground rumbles briefly) Powers of the deepest
evil, come forth! I command it! (ground rumbles more, with more glowing
red areas revealed by the quaking) I summon you! Might of the
malevolent masters, appear before me and do my bidding!"; this was
followed by more quaking and rocks falling, causing the moon palace to shake violently and lightning
to strike around it.
Finster asked Zedd how it felt to be the ultimate evil power
in the universe now that he'd beaten the Rangers.
King Mondo and Queen Machina had broken away from the United
Alliance of Evil and had set out to invade this galaxy. (See also: "U.A.O.H.")
Boohoo the Clown appeared in the room
of baby Joey (possibly in the house
of Tommy or Kat) to put Joey under a volume-amplifying spell; if
villains could enter homes, it's unknown why no villains attacked the Ranger teens in their
sleep or at some other vulnerable moment at home.
Mondo liked the Varox
which was hunting Gold Ranger and wanted to
know where the bounty hunter had come from; Sprocket guessed he was from some
second-rate evil empire.
Several centuries ago, Prince Gasket had fallen in love with Archerina, the daughter of King Mondo's mortal enemy King Aradon; the two
had eloped, knowing that their fathers would never have accepted the
marriage, but now that Mondo was gone, the
couple had returned to rule the Machine
In response to Gasket's plan to conquer the Earth, Archerina
pointed out that Earth was not an easy prize and
asked him how he would succeed where so many had failed.
Rita told Mondo that they'd used to be afraid of him, but
now he'd turned into an intergalactic joke.
According to Blue
Senturion's estimated future from the year 2000, the universe's greatest evils would join forces to
destroy the Earth and the entire universe, then divide its wealth; only one force
stood in their way. (See "Millennium
message" for more information.)
Mama D told Divatox that their family name had always been
legendary among the other pirates in deepest space and that they had ruled supreme, until Divatox came along, whom they thought of as a
wimp rather than a witch.
Rygog referred to Divatox as "the queen of evil."
Havoc addressed Divatox as the "queen of all evil," while
previously, he'd only referred to her as a pirate queen and "queen
pirate of the universe."
In an urgent message from Eltar, Zordon told the teens that Eltar was under
attack; a visual showed massive explosions on a gray moon-like planet.
Zordon said that so far
they had been able to resist their attackers' advances, and that though
the teens might be tempted to come to their
aid, they had to stay and protect the Earth.
Zordon began to warn the
teens of something (perhaps Goldgoyle or Dark
Specter), but his signal shorted out.
Probably no more than an hour later, Dimitria gave the Rangers grave news, that planet Eltar had fallen to evil forces; the teens were all quite concerned about Zordon and wanted to go help him, but Dimitria said they had to stay to defend the Earth from Divatox, so
she and Blue Senturion were leaving to
try to help Zordon.
Probably only minutes after Divatox had destroyed the Power Chamber, a flaming face streaked in
from the sky while her forces were
scouring the rubble for the Rangers.
Divatox wasn't familiar
with the flaming face, who said he was a messenger from the Cimmerian planet; he told Divatox that Zordon had
been captured and that she (calling her "Queen of Evil") would leave at
once for the Cimmerian planet.
When Divatox replied
that she'd just captured the Earth and wasn't
going anywhere, the flaming head told her Dark
Specter would not be happy; at the mention of Dark Specter's name, Divatox eeked and, with fake cheeriness, agreed
to come immediately.
Present at Dark
Specter's assembly of villains on the Cimmerian Planet following Zordon's capture were Rita
and Lord Zedd (having brought Goldar, Finster, Zedd's Putties, and
Tengas), King Mondo
and Queen Machina (having brought brown and
silver Cogs), Master
Vile (having brought Globbor, who bore the Aquitian Ranger helmets), Divatox (having brought Elgar, Rygog, Porto, Piranhatrons,
and a Putrapod), General Havoc (having brought no
assistants), the new villainess Astronema
(having brought Quantrons), and Red Space Ranger Andros disguised in a brown cloak.
Rita, laughing while
walking with Zedd, accidentally bumped into
Divatox, making the crowd of villains fall
After Divatox had
insultingly bragged about destroying the Power Rangers, Rita
nervously asked Zedd whether it was true that
she'd really destroyed the Rangers, and
he admitted that it was sort of the universal gossip.
After Astronema had
caught a stray energy blast from Rita aimed at Divatox, then walked away with an attitude, Divatox, surprised, asked Elgar who she was, and Elgar replied, "That's Astronema. They say she'll be the new queen of
evil," but Divatox planned otherwise.
Later, the villains sat at a long banquet table
decoratively adorned with human skulls; most of
the main villains sat at the table, while most of their henchmen stood
Pushing through the villains to be seated, Divatox called herself the queen of all evil.
Seated at the table were Mondo, Machina, Finster, Goldar, Rita, Zedd, Master Vile, Divatox, Elgar, a Putrapod (oddly enough), Astronema, General
Havoc, and the cloaked Andros.
At the table were bowls of fruit and glasses of
red liquid called "lava juice," as well as Zedd's favorite, snake souffle.
After Dark Specter
had arrived and announced that he was draining Zordon's powers, Zedd
called for a lava juice toast and toasted, "To the universe, a universe
that belongs to the Dark Specter!"
After the toast, Divatox was insulted to notice that the cloaked
stranger hadn't drunk any; Machina asked who
he was, at which point Astronema stood and
dramatically announced that he was a spy, and all of the villains were
Each of the villains, including Master Vile, General Havoc, and King Mondo, was tense and worked up as the
cloaked Red Ranger fended off
attacks on the banquet table.
When Goldar ripped off
the stranger's cloak and revealed him as the Red Space Ranger, all of the
villains were shocked, despite his use of the Spiral Saber while cloaked; Dark Specter then ordered for him to be
Later, T.J. planned for the
teens to set a new course for the Cimmerian Planet if the shuttle couldn't make it to Eltar, but, having just been there, Andros knew the Cimmerian Planet was already
abandoned by now.
Watching Andros on the
abandoned KO-35 calling for his lost sister Karone (secretly Astronema), Ecliptor
remarked, "So, you returned to your home planet. Sorry we had to
Preparing to test his invention which Astronema would call an Evilyzer, Professor
Phenomenus explained that the device could give anything an
attitude; after it had been used on a toy robot, the robot face
contorted into a grimace, and it spoke threateningly to them, saying,
"You dare to awaken me? (laughs) I'll teach you a lesson you won't soon
When the three fled into their RV, the toy drove
off the table and flew into the RV after them.
As a Quantron flew
after the Red and Yellow Rangers in a Velocifighter, the Evilyzer's energy beam struck the yellow Galaxy Glider, making it zip around out of
control, and Ashley barely managed to hang onto
Andros pulled Ashley onto his glider, and hers spiraled away
On the Megaship,
DECA theorized that the ray had reversed the
yellow Galaxy Glider's central ion
disseminators, and Andros agreed, saying the
ray could've changed the glider's programming from positive to negative;
Carlos assumed that by "negative" he meant
evil, and DECA said this was essentially correct.
During the Megazord battle with giant Destructipede and his team of
monsters, a beam from a new, larger Evilyzer aboard the Dark Fortress washed over the Delta Megazord, turning it evil and breaking Andros's control over it.
Now evil, the Delta
Megazord flew off and swooped over a city street, blasting buildings apart; it then
landed and blasted at all the buildings around it.
When Andros ran
screaming for the Delta Megazord to stop, it
turned and shot at him, making a huge explosion near him on the rooftop
where he was.
As the Delta Megazord
beat on the Astro Megazord, Andros attempted ordering the Delta Megazord to stop, which it did after the
second order; it then, however, suddenly aimed and fired again with blue
pulses from its Gyro Blasters, catching the Rangers off-guard.
After the Delta
Megazord had been bombarded for some time with a reverse-polarized
beam, a beam of orange energy waves from the Astro Megazord, the Evilyzer finally shorted out, and the Delta Megazord was soon back on the Rangers' side.
Upon leaping onto her out-of-control evilyzed Galaxy Glider later in space, Ashley shot the
reverse-polarized orange energy beam from her Astro Blaster at her glider, bringing it
back under control.
In a field of tall plants, perhaps corn, Bulk, Skull, and the Professor took a break from their running from
the evil toy after them; they pretended not to be afraid, but the toy
drove up to them and laughed at the idea that they'd thought they could
get rid of him that easily, and the three ran screaming in the direction
from which they'd come.
Darkonda addressed Astronema as the Princess of Darkness.
Upon realizing Darkonda had kidnapped his sister, Andros secretly went to Onyx, a planet in a
prohibited sector, where many different villains gathered for recreation
in an Old West town setting.
Among the various monsters, mutants,
and aliens on Onyx was
an eclectic mix of monsters and henchmen
which had been used or would be used by many of the main villains; see
"Onyx" for a more detailed list of visitors.
When Skygantor took out five black keycards to bet with at a card game
in the Onyx Tavern, the dealer yelled that they
were worthless, but Darkonda carefully
examined them with intrigue, asking where he'd gotten them.
Skygantor defensively told the
dealer, "I stole them when we battled on Eltar!"; the dealer was unimpressed.
Skygantor added, "They were Zordon's! They must be worth something!" and Darkonda agreed, saying the keycards were priceless.
Spotting the Morpher on Andros's arm, Darkonda
slashed at him, calling him Red
Ranger, at which point the bar patrons began to get anxious, either
from the mention of the Ranger, or merely from
the fight breaking out.
Recalling the struggle on Onyx when interrogated by Astronema, Skygantor described the Red Ranger's presence and said
that Darkonda had eventually discovered he
was a Ranger in disguise.
After capturing the Rangers in a net in his lab on Dekata 5, Darkonda said now that he'd captured the Power Rangers, his army of Crocotoxes would soon conquer the
Earth; looking into the vat of eggs, he said
they were maturing as they spoke, and soon he would be the next ruler of
the universe; with that kind of power, he
said, the possibilities were endless.
Fighting Zhane, whom he
knew was the Silver Ranger,
Ecliptor said Zhane's
destruction would make him a legend.
referred to Astronema as the princess of
darkness; he would do so again in 627-AsTT.
When Astronema told
Ecliptor that she thought her brother was
still alive, he reminded her that she was the princess of evil, and she
regained her evil persona.
Speaking privately with Dark Specter, Darkonda feared that Ecliptor had tarnished Astronema's evil spirit, saying, "You see, he
has shown her caring. Caring and evil do not mix. It could be an
explosive combination!"; Dark Specter
hoped that Darkonda was wrong.
Ecliptor said he had
been built evil, every cubic centimeter of him; Astronema, on the other hand, had been born,
born to be good, and it had only been after years under his supervision
that she had risen to become evil.
Kicking Darkonda out
after being brainwashed evil again, Astronema called herself the princess of
Dark Specter told
Astronema, "The time has come to complete my
master plan, Astronema. Summon all of my
evil forces. They must all unite to finally take over the universe."
The expanse of Dark
Specter's "evil forces" is unknown; it may have included only Astronema, Rita, Zedd, Divatox, and the
Machine Empire; it may have included all
of the villains that had attended his banquet in 601-FON1; or it may have included far more villains
Soon afterward, the Machine Empire received "the order"
(probably from Elgar for Astronema), and they had already prepared their
forces for what Mondo called the biggest
battle the universe had ever seen.
In a huge chamber of the Dark Fortress, Astronema addressed a huge army of Quantrons: "When we're finished, there will be
no 'good' left in the universe. No 'love',
no 'happiness!' Only chaos, anger, greed! Fight strong, and destroy
all the forces of goodness, especially the Power Rangers! Go now, and spread the wrath
of Dark Specter!!"
Organized by Astronema, Divatox
would conquer Gratha, the Machine Empire
would conquer Phantom Ranger's home planet and KO-35, Rita and Zedd would
conquer the defenseless Vica galaxy, and Astronema would conquer Earth.
The armies of the various villains were quite
mixed in composition, with each villain's army containing vast numbers
of monsters previously used by other
Astronema told Zordon it was the end of his era and the beginning
Listing villains that were
attacking all over, Andros mentioned Dark Specter, Astronema, Divatox,
and Rita and Zedd.
Cassie was bewildered to
see that Rita and Zedd
were attacking the defenseless Vica Galaxy, as though it were not a
common practice for the forces of evil to invade unprotected galaxies.
Zhane was surprised to
realize the villains were trying to conquer the whole universe, and Andros
agreed with the sentiment.
Soon after Dark
Specter had been destroyed, a hologram of Ecliptor's head appeared in the sky above each
of the villain armies on the various planets,
and he spoke, "Dark Specter is no more.
Astronema, princess of evil, is now your
supreme leader. It is for her that we fight, and for her we will
conquer the universe! Good will be destroyed, and evil will rule."
speech, his face was replaced by Astronema's, looking down on her armies, and
the villains began to bow in reverence.
On Gratha, Divatox was
frantically outraged, wanting them all to "pray" to her rather than Astronema, as they were working for her.
Proudly astonished on the Dark Fortress, Astronema had trouble believing she really was
the supreme leader now, but Ecliptor told her
the universe was now at her beck and call,
now calling her his queen.
told the people of Earth, not necessarily
speaking the truth, that the rest of the universe had surrendered; Zhane would later verify that the Rebels had surrendered.
The next Earth morning,
Zordon seriously told Andros there was not much time, as the forces of
evil had already captured most of the universe; soon, he said, they would capture the
Zordon told Andros that to stop it from happening, Andros must shatter his energy tube; only the good
energy from his tube, he explained, could destroy the forces of evil.
Andros insisted that
they'd keep fighting and there had to be another way, but Zordon firmly replied that there was no other way.
A wave of gold energy from Zordon's destruction radiated outward from the Dark Fortress near Earth as a ring of energy which spread throughout
When the wave passed over the armies of evil,
they were dissolved into piles of sand, with the exception of a few
villains who were purified into human forms.
Aside from all of the monsters and foot soldiers in the armies of Rita, Zedd, Divatox, Astronema,
and the Machine Empire, other destroyed
villains included General Havoc, Mondo, Machina, Squatt, and Elgar, and
presumably Finster, Goldar, Sprocket,
Klank, Orbus, Rygog, and Porto as well; the full extent of the energy wave's
effects is uncertain.
A sage named Jera
explained to an audience on Mirinoi
that the five Quasar Sabers would remain
trapped in their stone until those worthy among them could release them
and harness their powers to transform into mighty champions,
guaranteeing peace and the triumph of good.
When the Scorpion
Stinger approached Terra Venture on
its flight, Commander Stanton warned everyone of
the approaching alien ship and had
them enter secured areas, telling them it wasn't a drill; people began
fleeing inside buildings immediately after the word of an alien ship approaching, as though they
were quite familiar with the possibility of an alien threat on their
Extremely weakened from his fight with Orion-armored Leo, Treacheron staggered forward with his broken
stub of a sword, still attempting to fight; he told Red Ranger, "You stand for
everything I hate: goodness, honesty, decency. I will destroy you even
if it takes every last ounce of my being to do so!"
In the Onyx Tavern, where years ago there had
been assorted villains, there were now numerous aliens, animal-based past monsters, and mutated humans (see "Onyx" for
Deviot introduced Scorpius as the ruler of the universe, but Scorpius would then suffer a fatal blow at the
hands of the Red Galaxy
Word spread almost instantaneously to Kegler on Onyx that Scorpius had been in an awful battle and was in
The dying Scorpius,
asked who could possibly match his wisdom in ruling the universe, planned for Deviot to carry on his legacy with the new powers
contained within his cocoon, but Trakeena suddenly arrived just in time.
Scorpius told Trakeena the universe
would be hers with the powers he passed on to her, and he dissolved into
energy, leaving her with a slightly modified staff.
Preparing to throw Red Galaxy Ranger Leo into a vortex, Trakeena said the news of his destruction would
strike fear throughout the universe, and they
would tremble when they heard her name.
In Trakeena's lair, Villamax had apparently introduced the subject
of Loyax; Deviot called
him a washed-up old warrior, but Villamax
regarded him as an honorable legend.
Loyax had won battles in
every corner of the universe, according to Villamax; for centuries, he said, the name Loyax had inspired fear.
Having been brought in to meet Trakeena, Loyax bowed to
his "lovely queen Trakeena," and she soon
accepted his wish for one final battle, offering him a battle with the
Power Rangers, which he concluded would
be a glorious ending indeed.
Loyax bore the symbol of
Barbarax on his stomach.
Knowing of his honor, Maya
insisted that Loyax didn't have to fight, as he
wasn't on the villains' side, but he
replied that she was too young to understand, explaining that many
centuries ago, he had been a young warrior just like Maya, having done battle with his heart in the name
of good; a flashback showed him striking a Barillian Bug monster on a
Loyax had found the power
of evil to be too strong and widespread and had finally been defeated;
eventually, he'd become part of the evil he'd so despised.
After Deviot had
obtained the Psycho Rangers' data cards, Kegler had thought the Psychos had been destroyed, but Deviot angrily explained they'd merely been
Confronted by the Red Space and Galaxy Rangers,
Trakeena was giddy, thinking she would go
down in history for destroying two Red Rangers.
Considering the ten Rangers, Trakeena
believed that if she were to destroy them all, she would take her place
as queen of the universe.
The night after Kendrix's death, Trakeena and crew watched as the four Rangers flew into space after the missing Quasar Saber.
Knowing news about the saber would travel fast in
the underworld, Trakeena sent Villamax to check for rumors, and he knew
exactly where it would end up; presumably he thought of Onyx before Deviot obtained
the same information from Runtus on Gwinnet.
Soon after finding the Quasar Saber in his field on Gwinnet, the short humanoid Runtus had sent or taken it to an auction
on Onyx, as he disclosed to the interrogating Deviot; learning this, Deviot sent word to Trakeena by way of Ironite.
Enticing bids for a silver laser cannon at the Onyx auction, the auctioneer said certainly this
weapon that had belonged to Tahaga the Great was worth more; thinking it
still worked, the auctioneer accidentally shot a red laser beam which
shattered a bar patron's drink, prompting a bid of 250 Zanabatars.
The crown jewel of the Onyx auction was "the Pink Ranger's Quasar Saber"; such wording implied that the
Galaxy Rangers of Terra Venture were generally accepted as the
preeminent Ranger force in the region.
Trakeena was ready to destroy Captain Mutiny's castle the moment it and Terra Venture emerged from the Lost Galaxy portal; how she had been there immediately is
unknown, but it apparently had nothing to do with Terra Venture, as suggested in 743-End1.
Destroying the castle and apparently Mutiny inside, Trakeena spoke, "There's only one ruler in this
universe, and that's me."
Slowly going insane from merging with Deviot, Trakeena
shouted to her Stingwingers as she
prepared to finish off Terra Venture,
"Today, I, the great Trakeena, shall finally
defeat all that is good, and take my place, which I so truly deserve, as
ruler of the universe! Let history unfold!"
Entering her lair after blowing up the Stratoforce and Centaurus Megazords, the elated (but insane) Trakeena said she was queen of the world (?), as
she'd destroyed two Megazords.
After realizing the people of Terra Venture had actually landed on Mirinoi, Maya observed
that all the legends had been right; they had been chosen, and with the
Quasar Sabers, they'd defeated the forces
of evil, referring to Trakeena and perhaps Scorpius or even others.
Among the monsters in
the Shadow World's underground tomb were
monsters used by Rita, Astronema, Scorpius,
and the demons, as well as many other
unrecognizable monsters; Diabolico's spirit
would also apparently reside within the Shadow

would recount that Bansheera planned to

purification in 643-CTD2, Rita was apparently among the assorted monsters in the Shadow
World's underground tomb.
The Shadow World
also included monsters present (and
apparently destroyed) in the invasion of 643-CTD2.
In the Shadow
World, there appeared to be neither foot soldiers (such as Putties, Tengas,
Stingwingers, etc.) nor robots (the
nearest being the eletronic demon Shockatron).
According to narration, peace and justice reign a thousand years in the future. Thanks to the brave legion of the Time Force Police, the streets had been cleared of every criminal, except for Ransik.
