The Genie was trapped in the Lamp on the planet Kanyn 4 in the Wolf's Head galaxy. The Lamp was found by Squatt and Baboo and they released Genie. Genie arrived to Rita's palace and agreed to serve Rita and destroy the Power Rangers. Goldar sent Genie to Earth in the lamp, to not been discovered by Zordon. The Genie was released and enlarged by Rita. He attacked Angel Grove and encountered the Rangers. Genie was a powerful monster. He overpowered the Megazord. However, Alpha sent the Lamp to two different locations at once, vaporizing it and causing The Genie to disappear.
Genie was a mythical, mysterious and calm individual. He was shown to be highly loyal and faithful to Rita and genuinely served her and helped her to defeat the Power Rangers.

- Endurance: The Genie was able to twist his drill staff's handle without getting tired for an extended period of time.
- Invincibility: The Genie is unkillable and unstoppable for as long as his lamp is intact. Without it, he will cease to exist.

Behind The Scenes
- Genie was voiced by Tom Wyner.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
