Behind The Scenes

Portrayal

Notes

  • Genie is featured in the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers video game for the SNES, as the fourth level's boss. He possesses new abilities in the game not used in the episode, such as sending four hovering daggers and a row with four balls of fire down at the Rangers as attacks.
  • The reason the Genie was killed by the destruction of his lamp was because, in Zyuranger, some bratty kids found and rubbed it so he went back inside and was free of Bandora/Rita's control. This footage was unusable and had to be replaced for obvious reasons.
  • The Genie is the final monster to appear before the first appearance of Tommy Oliver and the final monster until the Hatchasaurus to not be fought by a Sixth Ranger.
