|This article is about a/an moster in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.|
Bones was a skeleton monster and the main antagonist of the episode "High Five."
Bones was the first monster to fight the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, the very first monster in the first season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, the first monster in the entire Zordon Era, and is most notable known as the very first Monster-Of-The-Week to appear in the entire Power Rangers franchise.
Bones was the first original monster to be made by Finster after being released from the dumpster. He creates Bones with his clay sculptures and the Monster-Matic to seal the Power Rangers in a time warp like she had done to Zordon ten thousand years earlier, thus rendering the Earth completely open to invasion. After being created, Bones politely greets his queen and Rita is satisfied with Bones. After the Rangers defeats an army of Putties, Bones launches outside of the Command Center, Rita then sends Bones to Earth to battle them and he lands in the fairgrounds where he starts to blast everything and generally be a nuisance.
The Rangers morphed and took on their very first monster but he removed his head and teleported the Rangers into the time-warp. Bones then summons his Skeleton Warriors (basically Putties in skeleton spandex) to aid him in battle and he personally fought Jason whilst his comrades fought the others. While this is all happening, Squatt and Baboo set up a bomb on a tree that would blow up and seal the time-warp shut, trapping the Rangers. After taking out the Skeleton Warriors, Bones stabbed his sword into the ground and created a chasm which knocked down the other Rangers and allowed him to overwhelm Jason. However, the other four Rangers blasted Bones with their Blade Blasters as Jason dodged the blasts but Bones began to restore his body. Billy realizes that his head is his weakness so grabs Bones' head and tosses it to Trini who wraps the head in Bones' cloak. The last six Skeleton Warriors come in to get back Bones' head but Trini defeats all of them with ease. She then throws Bones' head right into the chasm Bones himself created, destroying both his head and his body which falls on its back and explodes. with Bones gone, Rita sends a Giant to Earth to destroy the Rangers, but he was destroyed by the Tyrannosaurus Dinozord.
Bones was a devious, treacherous, cunning, intelligent, sinister, dark, calculating and resourceful monster who enjoyed playing with the enemy and would stop at nothing to destroy the Rangers. He was also very deceptive, manipulative, spiteful, unpredictable, ugly and sneaky and loves to make traps for the enemies. Despite all of this, he was very loyal to Rita and was shown to be highly polite and friendly to his queen.
