Character History

Badpipes was first seen on Galvanax's ship with an army of Kodabots and Cosmo Royale danching behind him, and later on doing the Hocky-Pocky, the reason is because Badpipes was useing his Bagpipes to make them dance, after being sent to Earth, he encounters the White Ranger (along with her dog Kody) and demanded her power star, but the White Ranger refuses, that is until Badpipes played his bagpipes and hypnotized her to give him her Power Star (with Kody running away in fear), tho righ before he could take it, Redbot comes in and kicks Badpipes away, releaseing the White Ranger from Badpipe's trance, Redbot sayed that music can not effect his circuitry, after Badpipes got up on his feet, the White Ranger morphed, Badpipes notices his bagpipes and atemps to grab it, but the White Ranger was able to snach it away in time as she battles Badpipes, he manage to get them back and even manages to trick the White Ranger, alowing him to give the White Ranger a kick in the chest, Badpipes was then about to fire energy lasers at the White Ranger, but Redbot steps in and takes the shots, right before Badpipes can play his Bagpipes again, Kody comes in and kicks dirt at the monster's eyes, alowing Redbot and the White Ranger to escape, later he encounters and attacks the Red, Yellow, Blue and Pink Rangers in a forest with Ripcon and hypnoize them to give them their Power Stars, right before they could, the White Ranger comes in her Ninja Cycle and blast Badpipes with her Plasma Blast, freeing the other Rangers and attacking Ripcon, right before the Rangers could take out Badpipes' Bagbipes, Ripcon used his Double Sword Doom Strike on the Rangers and taking the White Ranger out of her Ranger form, tho right befire Badpipes could take back his Bagpipes, Kody comes in and takes away the bagpipes from Badpipes' view, alowing the Rangers to destroy the bagpipes with thier Ninja Blasters, the Rangers morphed and battled both Ripcon and Badpipes. Badpipes then desited to run off to give Ripcon space to battle the Red Ranger, with the Yellow, Blue, White and Pink Ranger following him, he battles the four Rangers in a beach-like area and makes a beat down on them, he had more of an upper hand while flying, but he gets knocked down by the Yellow Ranger, right before he can battle him, he was destroyed by the Blue and Pink Rangers' Battle Morpher Arrow Blast Final Attack, he was enlarge and the Rangers summon the Ninja Steel Zords to form the Ninja Steel Megazord, Badpipes had the upper hand in the fight, so the Red Ranger summons the Rumble Tusk Ninja Steel Zord to form the Rumble Tusk Ninja Steel Megazord to fight Badpipes, they manages to breck off Badpipes' Flute Nose and knocked out his fan, they then used the Ruble Tusk Ninja Steel Megazord Double Axe Final Attack to destroy Badpipes once and for all.
