- ―Commander Crayfish[src]
Commander Crayfish was a crayfish monster, created by Finster, that led the Mutant Rangers (whom were Putties using the Badges of Darkness). Rita Repulsa planned to destroy the Power Rangers, using their evil reflections. He serves as the main antagonist of the episode "Mighty Morphin' Mutants".
Commander Crayfish was created by Finster, on the orders of Rita. Rita planned to destroy Power Rangers, using her own team of Mutant Rangers. Five Putties were chosen for this role and they used Badges of Darkness to transform into evil clones of Rangers. Commander Crayfish was chosen to replace the Jason, the Red Ranger, as none of the Putties was worthy to become the Red Ranger. He wielded a similar version of Rangers's Power Sword. Then Rita sent them all to Earth. Together they fought the Rangers, but persistence and courage of heroes helped them defeat the villains. Then Rita enlarged them all, but after the long battle they were all destroyed by Ultrazord's Laser Blasts.
He was recreated by Lord Zedd along with Goo Fish, Slippery Shark, and Pirantishead in "A Reel Fish Story" as one of the four aquatic monsters to attack the Rangers at the beach (he was referred to as "Cruel Crayfish" this time). He, like the other three monsters, was defeated by Tommy. During this appearance, Commander Crayfish had a female voice.
Commander Crayfish was fierce and determined monster, that won't stop at nothing to destroy the Power Rangers. He was shown to be talented and authoritative leader, as he led the Mutant Rangers. He is also loyal to Rita and Zedd.
