Behind The Scenes

Portrayal

  • Babe is voiced by Richard Epcar/.
    • His voice is identical to that of both Shellshock and the later Autochthon. This is especially evident when he says anything with the words "batter" or "ball" in it such as "batter up" and "try my curve ball" where he suddenly gains the same vocal inflections as Shellshock.

Notes

  • His name is a play on legendary baseball player George Herman "Babe" Ruth.
  • The original Japanese monster was the first monster slain by Gouryuuzin which is why his battle against the Dragonzord Battle Mode is more fleshed out than it was against Spidertron who was originally the second monster killed by the formation.
  • His name is shared with the fictional character Bliss "Babe Ruthless" Cavendar, a member of the banked-track Texas Roller Derby's "Hurl Scouts" team in the 2009 film Whip It, as well as a real roller derby skater (active as of 2015 with the Texas Rollergirls flat track derby league). Both the fictional and real rollergirls were named long after this episode aired.
  • If one believes that Babe Ruthless truly enlarged himself and it wasn't the same magic that grew Goldar and Scorpina, then Babe is the first monster to enlarge himself without external assistance.
