|"You Rangers and your teamwork really cheese me off!"|
|―Choobo after the Thunder Rangers escaped.[src]|
Choobo was the lieutenant and later general of Lothor's army. He wielded a staff and could summon energy spheres to trap his enemies. He was also a source of comic relief (along with Marah and Kapri).
Sometimes, he used monsters based off animals.
|"They said I'd make it big someday!"|
|―After being grown by The Scroll of Enpowerment.[src]|
In the four-part episode "Return of Thunder", He was promoted to general when he captured the Thunder Rangers and brainwashed them to fight the Wind Rangers again. However, he failed to destroy the Rangers, so he was banished from Lothor's ship.
He swore revenge, and stole a Scroll of Empowerment, which gave him great strength and powers. He was defeated by the Thunderstorm Megazord, but saved by Lothor and (as punishment for stealing the Scroll of Empowerment and disrespecting his master's orders) shrunk down to be Marah's new pet.
In the episode "Good Will Hunter", Lothor later restored him to normal accidentally.
He is also the one who reveals Shimazu and Vexacus's plans to Lothor.

In the final part of the two-part series finale episode "Storm Before the Calm", he escaped with some Kelzaks when Lothor's flagship was blown up and during the rescue of Cam Watanabe by the Thunder Rangers. He later reappeared with them when Lothor calls them near of the Abyss of Evil for the final battle.
During the final battle between the Ninja Storm Rangers and Lothor's forces, Choobo was defeated by Shane as the Red Battlized Ranger, although it wasn't quite clear if he was completely destroyed as he was only seen falling down after being blasted by the Battilizer's lasers.
Power Rangers: Super Legends
Choobo can be seen in Power Rangers: Super Legends.
Choobo is similar to Marah and Kapri as he serves as comic relief of the series, he speaks in a goofy manner similar to that of some brute-type characters seen in cartoons, he is overall not the brightest of generals (though there are some moments were he can be clever) and can be on a bit on the dumb side, but when in comes to fighting, he does take his missions seriously.
Powers and Abilities
Despite his goofy appearance however, Choobo is indeed a powerful fighter, as well as powerful magic user, in the finale part of four-part episode "Return of Thunder", when he gets enlarged by the Scroll of Empowerment, it took the power of the new Thunderstorm Megzord to finally defeat him.
- Super Strength: Choobo is one of Lothor's strongest generals. In the final part of the four-part episode "Return of Thunder", when he gets enlarged by the Scroll of Empowerment, he is strong enough to best both the Storm Megazord and the Thunder Megazord in battle.
- Durability: Choobo has highly durable and thick skin that can take many beatings from his enemies. In the final part of the four-part episode "Return of Thunder", he got blasted by the combined attacks of the Wind Rangers' Storm Cannon and the Thunder Rangers' Thunder Blaster, and did not even get a scratch. Being defeated and exploding as a result of his battle with the Thunderstorm Megazord did not destroy him although he was badly injured by it, but he would have perished if Lothor did not save him.
