Bandora was defeated by losing her magic after crying for the loss of her son as witches aren't allowed to show tears. She and her minions were sealed inside an urn and send into space. Rita was defeated after being hit by Zordon's energy wave, purging her from evil and turning her into a human.

Bandora completely lost her magic after redemption. Is a completely different character than Heavenly Arch Saint Magiel. Rita became the high-mage of magic as "Mystic Mother" and even helped the Mystic Force Rangers and HyperForce Rangers.
Bandora only appeared in Zyuranger, making no appearances outside of that series. Rita appeared in almost every episode of all three Mighty Morphin Power Rangers seasons. Also made a few appearances in Zeo, the Turbo movie and In Space.

Bandora holds no special distinction and left no big impact on the Super Sentai franchise as a whole. Rita is the first evil leader in Power Rangers. And also one of the most iconic villains of the entire Power Rangers franchise, still being popular many years after her initial appearance on TV.
Bandora did not appear in any extra seasons. Rita appeared in Power Rangers HyperForce (As the Mystic Mother).
