"Play ball!"

"Whoa! W-hey!"
―Babe Ruthless after the Dragonzord in Battle Mode impaled him and his final words before his demise.[src]

Babe Ruthless was a baseball playing pixie/ogre monster who served as the secondary main antagonist of the episode "A Star Is Born".

History

Babe Ruthless is created by Finster as part of a plan by Goldar to attack and eliminate the Power Rangers whilst Rita recovers from an illness. Babe cones to Earth with Goldar and Scorpina after the Rangers free themselves from Weaveworm's cocoon. Babe Ruthless enlarges along with Goldar and Scorpina and starts the battle with the Rangers and their Dinozords.

Tommy however is not present since he is having an audition for a karate commercial. Whilst Scorpina and Goldar take on the Tyrannosaurus Dinozord, Babe fights the other three Zords (with the Pterodactyl Dinozord mysteriously gone). The Sabertooth Tiger Dinozord blasts him with its tail cannon but he is completely unfazed and blasts them with energy baseballs. However, he is forced to retreat and defend Scorpina and Goldar after they are blasted down by the Sabertooth Tiger Dinozord.

Shortly thereafter, Tommy manages to leave the audition and summons the Dragonzord. The Rangers then form the Dragonzord in Battle Mode which Babe Ruthless fights personally whilst Scorpina and Goldar fight the Tyrannosaurus Dinozord but all three are overwhelmed. He then tries to attack with red mist but the Power Staff shields the Zords.

He tries to use a massive ball on the Dragonzord Battle Mode and Tyrannosaurus Dinozord but the latter's tail knocks it right back at him. In desperation, Babe Ruthless then charges to try and fight it hand to hand but is killed by the Power Staff, being impaled and then falling flat on his back before exploding.

Personality

Babe Ruthless was highly arrogant, confident and boastful and had the mannerisms of a baseball player and enjoyed fighting the Rangers. However his arrogance was also his weakness as he was finally defeated by the Dragonzord Battle Mode after charging full tilt into its staff.
