|"Getting the kid to open the box was almost too easy, Rita's gonna be pleased."|

|"Yeah. Power Eggs."|

Chunky Chicken was created by Finster. When Rita asked Finster for a truly cruel monster, Finster created the Chunky Chicken. Rita wanted to find a chest of magic eggs, that themselves were artifacts of the Morphin Masters. She wanted to use these eggs to defeat the Rangers. This chest could be opened only by a little kid. Rita needed Chunky Chicken to force the little girl Maria, babysitting by Trini and Kimberly, to open this chest. When Maria was kidnapped by Rita's forces, Chunky Chicken forced her to open the chest. When the Rangers arrived to save Maria, the monster tried to kill her, but Maria was rescued by the Megazord and evacuated on the Rad Bug, Billy's creation. Rita then enlarged the monster out of pure rage. Chunky Chicken could use his scissors to open dimensional holes and teleport. Goldar also enlarged to help him. However Chunky Chicken was eventually destroyed by the Megazord's Power Sword.
Chunky Chicken was cruel, spiteful and menacing monster. He kidnapped Maria and then tried to kill her. He was also cunning, unpredictable and resourceful, when he tried to defeat the Rangers. But he is also faithful to Rita, even though she said the sight of him made her sick.
Powers And Abilities
- Superhuman Strength: Chunky Chicken can deflect arrows with single swings of his shears and when giant, a single kick knocked back the Megazord.
- Flying: Chunky Chicken can float in the air by himself without flapping his wings, which is weird, because chickens can’t fly, let alone float.
- Giant Scissors: The Chunky Chicken has a massive pair of gardening shears to use in combat that can deflect the Power Bow's arrows with single swings.
- Dimensional Teleportation: The Chunky Chicken can cut a blue line in our dimension and enter to transport between dimensions. He would then pop out elsewhere and attack the enemy in a surprise attack.
