"Yes!"
―Cyclops's only line after Rita asked if he understood the plot of Part II.[src]

Cyclops was a shapeshifting cyclops monster who served as the main antagonist of the two part episode "The Green Candle".

Character History

Cyclops is created by Finster and Rita sends him to Earth with the goal of wasting the Power Rangers' time and allow the Green Candle to strip Tommy of his powers so that Rita can reclaim them. He disguises himself as the Dragonzord using his unique shapeshifting abilities and attacks Angel Grove Docks with it's tail and a missile barrage. The Rangers summon the Dinozords and fight him with the Megazord. The Rangers can't defeat him until Tommy returns from the Dark Dimension and summons the real Dragonzord. After Dragonzord hits him with it's tail, Cyclops temporarily loses his ability to shapeshift which leaves him completely open to attacks and outnumbered so he is forced to retreat before he would have received a nasty cut from the Power Sword.

Cyclops later returns and attacks Angel Grove again to draw attention away from the Green Candle. The aim is to cause so much chaos and destruction that the Rangers (who are trying to extinguish said candle) will be forced to return to Earth to kill him and thus the scheme will succeed. To this end, he disguises himself as the Dragonzord Battle Mode. Since the Rangers are occupied with the Green Candle, Tommy fights the monster alone and goes into the Dragonzord's cockpit for the first time to more effectively fight the monster. It easily takes the monster out of it's Battle Mode form but he easily recovers and changes into the Megazord. They are pretty evenly matched until the "Megazord" jump kicks the Dragonzord down. However, it quickly recovers and smacks the monster hard enough with it's hand to make him revert. He then changes into the Tyrannosaurus Dinozord but is still no match and is forcibly reverted by a smash to the front by the Dragonzord's tail. However, it is not enough to finish him off so the Rangers abandon their mission to help Tommy and form the Ultrazord. Cyclops charges but the Ultrazord is finally able to destroy him with a massive laser barrage. Cyclops turns into yellow energy as he goes limp and explodes in the midst of falling onto his back.

Legacy

In spite of Cyclops' death, Rita accomplishes her goal with the Green Candle. Tommy almost loses his powers to Rita but quickly transfers the remaining powers to Jason by giving up Tommy's Power Coin to protect it for the time being. This allows him to summon the Dragon Shield, Dragon Dagger, and Dragonzord at any given time.

Around a year later, after TurbanShell drains Tommy's powers forever, Jason feels intense self loathing at failing to put out the Green Candle before stopping Cyclops. Fortunately, an attack by Goldar and Pipebrain helps him come to grips with what has happened. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Missing Green

Personality

Cyclops was a sinister, brutish, destructive and horrifying monster who only spoke once aside from growls and roars but still proved to be a formidable opponent for the Rangers.
