"Nice to meet ya, Zack!"
―The Black Mutant Ranger's roll call.[src]

The Black Mutant Ranger was the Black Ranger of the Mutant Rangers and Zack Taylor's evil counterpart.


Rita planned to destroy the Power Rangers using evil reflections of them and sent six Putties to train and defeat the Rangers. One Putty went on to pass the course and went on to become the Black Mutant Ranger but another failed to pass and was replaced by the Commander Crayfish monster to act as the team's Red Ranger. They were met at the shoreline by Crayfish who assumed command and prepared to attack Angel Grove. Sometime later, the Power Rangers were sent to the shoreline by Zordon to prevent them from invading Angel Grove but the team was unfazed and Crayfish led the morph. The Mutant Rangers encountered the Rangers and Black Mutant Ranger teased Zack. He flipped into action with his Mutant Power Axe, a corrupted version of Zack's Power Axe. Unfortunately for the Evil Rangers, the Power Rangers had upgraded versions of their regular Power Weapons and were able to deliver a complete thrashing to their counterparts. In desperation, the Mutant Rangers formed the Mutant Blaster whilst the Power Rangers formed their Power Blaster. In a Blaster vs. Blaster fight, the new weapons proved too much for Crayfish and the Mutant Rangers, outright destroying the Yellow Mutant Ranger and Pink Mutant Ranger immediately and knocking out the other four.

Rita then made Commander Crayfish and the male Mutant Rangers grow so the Rangers formed the Megazord and called upon the Dragonzord. Commander Crayfish fought the Megazord whilst the Black, Blue, and Green Mutant Rangers all took on the Dragonzord. However, all four were completely useless and were knocked down so they formed a pyramid with Crayfish on top. Blue and Black kicked back the Zords before Crayfish had Green blast them with his Pyro Blast. Unfortunately for them, the real Power Rangers formed the Ultrazord which scared Commander Crayfish and he told his teammates to back him off. However, they were far two slow so the Ultrazord opened fire and mowed down all five which made all five fall into a large pile and explode. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Mighty Morphin' Mutants


The Black Mutant Ranger was shown to be boastful and arrogant. He talks with the voice of Zack, but lacks his noble and heroic personality. Despite being evil, Black Mutant Ranger was shown as somewhat polite, but sarcastic, since he greeted Zack during the battle.
