History

Past

Goldar and Silverback.

Goldar and his older brother Silverback were the elite warriors who served Lord Zedd and had earned many victories in his name, his race was given a new armored piece for each victory, his brother Silverback was considered as their greatest fighter with Goldar a close second. One day after another victory over a resistance planet, Zedd's emissary arrived and told Goldar and Silverback that he wished to see them. By this point the two brothers started to believe that Zedd had become weak and questioned his decisions after his incident with the Zeo Crystal, but Goldar decided to maintain his respect towards Zedd unlike his brother who was growing impatient.

After Silverback told Zedd that he would rather work for Dark Specter than join Rita Repulsa in her fight against Zordon, Zedd mortally wounded Silverback with a massive red energy blast from his staff and had Goldar execute him for his treachery with his own sword through beheading, after this painful act Goldar agreed to join the Evil Space Aliens in their fight against Zordon. Goldar and the rest of Rita's team were then sealed in a dumpster by Zordon at some point. Comicicon.png COMIC STORY- Mighty Morphin Power Rangers 2016 Annual

Early Days

Goldar and the Putty Patrollers invade Angel Grove.

10,000 years later, two astronauts accidentally released the Evil Space Aliens who reclaim their Moon Palace as their base and quickly unleash their Putty Patrollers on Zordon's new Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Meanwhile, Goldar led his Empress' very first invasion against the Earth. However, he soon faces the Power Rangers who wipe the floor with his Putties until Rita makes him grow giant and he starts to rampage so the Power Rangers summon their Dinozords and form Tank Mode. He blasts them with fire but it is only shaken up and they quickly blast him with it's cannons and form the Dino Megazord in Battle Mode. However, Goldar immediately jumps into the air and smackes it in the chest before slashing it down the front though it then twists him around in a big circle and deflects a slash before punching him in the gut. Though the punch knocks it back as well, Goldar is unfazed and double slashes it only for a third to be blocked and he gets punched in the face hard enough to go down. However, as Billy points out, Goldar isn't even winded and immediately jumps in the air to knock back the Megazord with a devastating double kick to the chest. Though the Megazord deflects a slash and then dodges a second, it takes a hard kick to the gut which shakes up the cockpit and leads Goldar to declare premature victory. Luckily, Jason summons the Power Sword which scares Goldar enough to retreat. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Day of the Dumpster

As part of a plan to divide and conquer the Rangers with a monster, Goldar sends a platoon to attack Kimberly and Trini at a recycling plant. Once this failed, he personally leads an attack on the two girls by the Putties whilst the males attackes the Mighty Minotaur. They are initially overwhelmed by the Putties until the Mighty Minotaur is grown so they summon the Dinozords, Kimberly using her Pterodactyl Dinozord's laser cannons to defeat the Putties, forcing Goldar to withdraw. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Teamwork

Rita develops a scheme to use King Sphinx's wind power to blow away four of the Rangers and destroy Jason with Goldar and the monster. Goldar arrives very abruptly in the fight, when Jason and Sphinx are at a stalemate in the fight, and turned the tide with fire blasts before Rita make them grow. They blast Jason down several times but he manages to get the newly sent Power Crystals to summon the other Rangers. Fortunately, despite King Sphinx blasting him, Jason is able to retrieve a bag filled with the new Power Crystals and use them to teleport the other Rangers in before he summons the Dinozords. Forming Tank Mode, they blast the two villains but they are unfazed and blast the formation with devastating force so they have to enter Battle Mode. Goldar and King Sphinx are smacked aside with Goldar getting punched back twice and Sphinx punched away. Goldar recovers and double slashes the Megazord and, though they are able to duck a swing that would have decapitated the formation, something goes wrong and they have to form Tank Mode to recover. Unfortunately for Goldar and King Sphinx, they ram down the two of them and blast them with the Cranial Laser. This apparently hurts Goldar badly enough to take him out of the fight since King Sphinx does all of the fighting from here onwards and is swiftly slain by the Power Sword. Alone and severely outgunned, Goldar is forced to retreat. Tvicon.png TV STORY-A Pressing Engagement

Goldar accompanies Rita, Squatt, Baboo and Finster to a cave where the Power Eggs are and later accompanies Squatt and Baboo as they carry the chest containing the Power Eggs after Maria and the Chunky Chicken monster retrieve them. He loses then when he and the idiots are hit by the Blade Blaster Tower Formation and fights Kimberly and Trini only to be unexpectedly at the warehouse district where he watches Maria get freed and the Megazord destroy the Chunky Chicken. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Big Sisters

After Squatt anf Baboo bring a Genie to help Rita destroy the Power Rangers, Goldar sends the Genie to Earth in the lamp carried by Squatt and Baboo so that he will not be detected by Zordon and his scanners before Rita wants him to be. After Squatt and Baboo accidentally lose the Lamo to the Power Rangers however, Goldar and a platoon of Putties attack the Angel Grove trainyards which forces the Power Rangers into battle. Whilst his Putties take on the other Rangers, Goldar fights Jason and blocks a kick who dodges his sword swings twice but Squatt and Baboo advancing on…something distracts him long enough to be cut down. Before the fight can continue however, the Power Rangers are called away to fight the Genie and Goldar returns to the Moon Palace. Though the Genie comes extremely close to destroying the Power Rangers, Squatt and Baboo’s loss of the lamp is ultimately his undoing. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Switching Places

Green With Evil

Much later, after making Tommy Oliver into her evil Green Ranger, Rita desires to lure the Power Rangers into a trap and uses her magic wand to grow her top henchman, Goldar, to giant-size. The Power Rangers, seeing this in the Viewing Globe, morph into action to confront him. After a brief battle with some Putties, the Rangers summon their Dinozords, form the Megazord, and summon the Power Sword to battle Goldar. Suddenly, Goldar disappears and Tommy invades their cockpit and defeats them before leaving after a show of force. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Out of Control

Later, Goldar confronts Jason in Rita's Dark Dimension after Tommy captures him and nearly kills the Red Ranger several times over before being forced to leave by Tommy's arrival who Rita has ordered to kill Jason. Later, after Jason is teleported to safety, Goldar appears via voiceover to tell Tommy that he will remain there until further notice for his failure. Tvicon.png TV STORY-The Rescue

With the Megazord proving problematic for the Green Ranger, Rita plans an eclipse to weaken it enough for it to be annihilated so enlarges Goldar and has him go on a rampage. As Goldar rampages through Angel Grove, he sees Bulk and Skull in a bus and picks them up before marching to the beach and forcing the Rangers to respond. The Rangers chase after Goldar, who has put the bus on a cliff, with Squatt, Babboo, and the Putties pushing it toward the edge, while Bulk and Skull are helplessly trapped inside. The Rangers finally summon their Dinozords and form the Megazord. Just as the bus is pushed over the edge, the Megazord catches it and puts it back on the cliff in safely. The Megazord then battles with Goldar on the beach when suddenly, Rita's solar eclipse begins, and the Megazord begins to lose power. Despite this, the Megazord manages to gain the upper hand on Goldar, knocking him to the ground. On seeing this, Rita sent her newly reawakened minion (and Goldar's old battle partner) Scorpina into battle and grows her into a giant, hideous scorpion monster. The Megazord is severely weakened by the combined power of Goldar and Scorpina and the loss of its solar energy is enough that Goldar is able to jump kick the Megazord to the ground as the eclipse reaches its zenith. Jason calls on the Power Sword for an energy boost and the Megazord gets back on its feet and reclaims the advantage on Goldar and Scorpina. However, Rita then summons the Green Ranger (who has been captured during a second attack on the Command Center) and enlarges him too. Together, all three villains beat down the Megazord and Tommy and Goldar's combined sword blasts cripple the Megazord which plunges to its apparent doom in a cavern full of lava. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Eclipsing Megazord

In light of thier victory, Rita and her minions throw a party in celebrating thier ultimate victory. However, Zordon (having been banished earluer by Tommy) returns and brings the Zords back which allow them to defeat the newly reawakened Dragonzord. Jason then manages to destroy the Sword of Darkness and return Tommy to the side of good where he then joins the Rangers as their Sixth Ranger.

Goldar teames up with the Spidertron very briefly, blasting down the Rangers with fire but is stopped by Zack's Blade Blaster before the monster is enlarged and he left. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Itsy Bitsy Spider

After transforming Kimberly's grandmother's spinning wheel into the Wheel of Misfortune, Rita sent Goldar and Scorpina down to Earth in order to grow. The individual Zords are no match, Goldar netting up the Tyrannosaurus and energy blasts from Scorpina prevents the other Zords from interfering before they cut it down. Luckily, Tommy breaks free and blastes them down with the Dragonzord's missile barrage before freeing the Tyrannosaurus Dinozord. Midway through the Zord fight, the Wheel arrives and manages to put up a solid fight, even giving the Megazord trouble. It is ultimately destroyed when the Megazord combined with the Dragonzord and Titanus to form the Dino Ultrazord in a last-ditch effort for victory, prompting the other villains to retreat. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Wheel of Misfortune

After Scorpina gets the Mirror of Destruction and Rita enlarges her, giant Goldar pops up and restraines the Megazord, forcing the Rangers to cover their eyes before forcing Goldar in front of it. Scorpina discardes it to save her partner so Jason summons the Power Sword and obliterates it with an energy slash, making Goldar and Scorpina withdraw. Tvicon.png TV STORY-The Rockstar

Goldar, Squatt, and Baboo accompany the Samurai Fan Man to a cafe where the Rangers confront the quartet just to be blown away by the monster. He is later enlarged with the Fan Man so Tommy calls on the Dragonzord, which combines with the other Zords to form the Dragonzord Battle Mode. The battle continues to go poorly, with their best efforts only pushing Goldar back a bit (before taking some hits of their own). Luckily, they begin to turn the tide when they summon the Power Staff managed to cut the monster's gourd loose with a stab from the Power Staff, freeing Kimberly who summons her Pterodactyl Dinozord so Jason, knowing that they need more power, has the team form the Megazord. They call on the Power Sword, breaking the Samurai Fan Man's lance, but he then blows both the Megazord and Dragonzord away simultaneously with his fan, which are stopped by a nearby mountainside. Goldar orders the Fan Man to destroy them but the Rangers recover and call on Titanus to form the Ultrazord, which is able to destroy the monster which forces an angry Goldar to retreat. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Calamity Kimberly

With Rita feeling very under the weather, Goldar decides to mastermind an attempt on the Rangers' lives. After Scorpina traps the Rangers with her Weaveworm monster, go down to Earth with the Babe Ruthless monster and all three make themselves grow at will and attack the city but the Rangers escapes the cocoon with thier sidearms and summon their Zords. Whilst Scorpina and Goldar take on the Tyrannosaurus, Babe Ruthless takes on the other four Zords. Though the Rangers take a pounding, Tommy manages to leave a karate commercial audition and summons the Dragonzord. The Rangers then form Dragonzord Battle Mode which Babe fights personally whilst Scorpina and Goldar fight the Tyrannosaurus but all three are overwhelmed. Once the Power Staff kills Babe Ruthless, Scorpina returns to human size, Goldar returns to the Moon Palace. Tvicon.png TV STORY-A Star is Born

During Rita's schemes with the Green Candle, Goldar guards the mystical item and is confronted by Jason whilst the Cyclops monster keeps Tommy busy. He defeats Jason easily and easily holds him back from the candle until they have to retreat and form the Ultrazord to destroy the Cyclops. Although the villains succeed and drain away Tommy's powers, Jason takes his powers and both the Dragon Dagger, Dragon Shield, and Dragonzord for his own use which prevents Rita from recovering them. Tvicon.png TV STORY-The Green Candle

It is Goldar's idea to plant the Hatchasaurus egg to destroy the Power Rangers but this scheme ultimately fails miserably. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Birds of a Feather

Goldar and Scorpina go down to Earth to aid the Polluticorn when he attacks the Power Rangers but he refuses thier help and easily forces the Rangers to retreat. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Clean-Up Club

Doomsday

In perhaps Goldar's most notable appearance, which occured on Power Rangers Day, Rita hatched her biggest scheme yet: bring her Moon Palace to Earth, greatly increasing her power, and call on the long-dormant war Zord Cyclopsis to defeat the Power Rangers once and for all. Shortly thereafter, as Rita lands her palace in the heart of downtown Angel Grove, everyone in the city (apart from the Rangers) is transported to Rita's dark dimension.

Very soon after that, erupted from underground which Alpha and Zordon detected but Goldar entered it and went on a rampage before they could act. The Rangers arrived in their Megazord but it was far too strong and easily bashed them around so they called the Dragonzord. Unfortunately, neither its missile attack nor its tail could faze the Zord and both took a thrashing. The Megazord tried to advance but was picked up with its telekinesis and thrown down so they formed Dragonzord Battle Mode. However, the Tyrannosaurus had its finishing breath attack pushed back at it and went down before the Dragonzord Battle Mode fired forth its head fin only to have it thrown back. Cyclopsis then knocked the two down with a barrage of missiles and electrocuted by the War Zord's extending arm cables. Luckily, Zordon summoned Titanus who blasted the Zord back, releasing its hands, and the Rangers formed the Ultrazord. The Zord's strong armor was no match for its barrage and Goldar had to flee before it exploded but its head managed to remain intact.

Although the Rangers thought that it was destroyed, Rita summoned Lokar who reformed it into a stronger version that was now equipped with arm blades although lacking its other abilities. The Megazord and Dragonzord deployed again but Cyclops easily cleaved off the Megazord's right arm and the Dragonzord's tail. Rita then blasted them into apparent oblivion although it was soon revealed that they had actually teleported back to their hiding places.

Following a failed attack on the Power Rangers with the Putty Patrol, in which they escaped using their Communicators which Rita had previously been blocking, Goldar returned to Cyclopsis and went on a rampage. After linking to Rita Repulsa's computer systems while her Palace was on Earth, Alpha discovered that the only weakness in Cyclopsis was that its systems needed to adjust to compensate for battle with a new opponent, and too many changes in the enemy would cause it to freeze up and be completely open to attack. With this new strategy, the Rangers once again deployed against the War Zord.

They first attacked with their individual Dinozords, doing a little damage with the Sabertooth Tiger and Triceratops Dinozord's tail blasts and the Pterodactyl's laser cannons but it soon overwhelmed the Tyrannosaurus so they formed the Megazord and summoned the Dragonzord. The Power Sword was able to prove a match for the Zord's arm blades, pinning them down so that the Dragonzord could smash them with its tail. With the Zord now basically helpless, they formed the Dragonzord in Battle Mode which thrashed the Zord but was overwhelmed by Lokar's lightning. Crushing a building, Jason called for Titanus and they formed the Ultrazord which vanquished Lokar and destroyed Cyclopsis once and for all. Unfortunately, the War Zord's computer warned Goldar of its imminent demise and he was able to escape. In the process, the entire population of Angel Grove was returned and the Evil Space Aliens were forced to retreat back to the Moon. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Doomsday

Post Doomsday

Whilst the Rangers were held up by the Pudgy Pig, Rita enlarged Goldar to destroy Angel Grove. However, the plan fell apart as Pudgy was not truly evil and just hungry so they went to confront Goldar in the city only to be met by Putties led by Scorpina. Once the immediate threat was fought off, the Megazord was brought in to battle with Goldar. During the fight, he advanced slowly, claiming he wanted revenge for Rita's many defeats but Jason saw a chance to finish him once and for all. Once he got in close enough, they forced a blade lock before energizing their weapon which worried Rita but Goldar was able to teleport out before the finishing slash was able to hit him. Tvicon.png TV STORY-A Pig Surprise

When the Rangers went to Billy's uncle's cabin to study for an exam, Goldar planned to use the Crystal of Nightmares to destroy their self-confidence and make them easier to defeat. That night, Goldar puts his plan in motion: the Rangers dream of the worst moments of past battles, and share a nightmare in which Zordon tells them they are no longer deserving of their powers and takes them away. With the Rangers even too scared to answer Zordon on their communicators, Rita sent down the Putties to finish them off.

Eventually, Jason reacted fast enough to run into the cave. Inside he found Goldar waiting, and although still scared summons the confidence up to fight back. He finally takes his chance and kicks the Crystal of Nightmares, destroying it. Goldar was badly injured by a shockwave from it but cursed Jason and teleported away. With their confidence back, the Rangers now make short work of the Putties. Goldar and Scorpina then appear and are made to grow by Rita. The Rangers morph and summon the Megazord but were completely overwhelmed by the duo, getting knocked down by a devastating double jump kick from Goldar. However, they then summon the Power Sword and cut them down before unleashing the finisher. Although the duo survived, they were badly injured and had to retreat. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Crystal of Nightmares

After the Dramole captures the parents in Angel Grove on Parent's Day, the monster takes control of Billy to steal the Dragon Dagger who succeeds and gives it to Goldar in the Dark Dimension with Rita's general then going to Angel Grove and reawakening the dormant Dragonzord. The Rangers summon the Megazord to hold the Dragonzord at bay but the former is slammed and severely damaged by the latter. The Rangers leap out of the Megazord in time to confront Goldar who again demands that they give up their Power Coins in order to get their parents back. With no choice but to save their parents' lives, the Rangers, one by one, hand over their Power Coins near the caves outside Angel Grove, placing them inside an ornate treasure box held by Goldar, and are powered down into their human forms. Goldar then reveals that he has no intention of releasing their parents and, with the Power Coins now in his possession, he believes nothing can stop Rita now.

Goldar then reawakens the Dragonzord to finish destroying Angel Grove but Zordon implements his back-up plan; nearly draining himself of his own life force but temporarily restoring Tommy Oliver's Green Ranger powers in the process. The Green Ranger teleports to Goldar's location and confronts him but the beast-warrior merely sends Putties to deal with Tommy and his powers are soon depleted again. Despite putting up a good fight, the unstable nature of Tommy's power begin causing him pain, preventing him from fighting at his best. Seeing Tommy getting weaker, Jason has Alpha boost the power which puts him back in the fight. After a harrowing battle, Tommy manages to retrieve the Dragon Dagger and regain control of the Dragonzord but Rita sends Scorpina to help Goldar destroy the Zord. As giants, the two warriors battled the Dragonzord until they realize that they have left the Rangers' Power Coins unguarded so retreat but Tommy is able to escape with the Coins and eventually helps the Rangers destroy the Dramole.

It is the day of the Angel Grove tryouts for American football and Rita plans to exploit it by using the Rhinoblaster to dispose of the Power Rangers once and for all. However, the monster needs time to work so Rita has Goldar send down the Putty Patrol to harass the Rangers but they and the monster are all later killed. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Football Season

When Rita finds the Badges of Darkness after so long, she decides to create her special Mutant Rangers to finally put an end to the Power Rangers. Deciding to use Putties as the source of the Mutant Rangers, she has Goldar put them through a rigorous training regime but the one meant to become the Mutant Ranger fails and sends him back to Finster's workbench to be killed and reused for future Putty molds.Tvicon.png TV STORY-Mighty Morphin' Mutants

Season 2

Goldar and Lord Zedd.

After around a year of activity, Lord Zedd returned to the Moon and entered his throne room. Goldar eagerly abandoned Rita for his old master, regaining his wings in the process and even sealing her in a dumpster like the one he was once in as well to prove his loyalty. Afterwards, he suggested sending down Rita's ordinary Putty Patrollers but Zedd declared them obsolete and showed off his own Putty Patrollers although these were even easier to defeat than the originals because hitting the massive Z-symbols makes them explode. Tvicon.png TV STORY-The Mutiny

Goldar asked to accompany the Putty Patrol in capturing Trini's neighbor Hallie to show Zedd as the big guy in the room. Goldar and the Putties quickly arrived and kidnapped Hallie whilst proclaiming that this was ultimately to spite the Rangers before they teleported away and taking Hallie to the Venus Island. However, Goldar had managed to lose the bottle in the battle which angered Zedd and forced him to change his plans. The altered plan amounted to "give me Tommy or I will turn Hallie evil forever" since Zedd still wanted to strip him of his powers. Unfortunately, the Invenusable Flytrap failed to keep the Rangers captive and they rescued her before Zedd could send the Island to the bottom of the ocean. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Welcome to Venus Island

Goldar accompanied Zedd to the Otherworld where he oversaw the Green Crystal in stealing Tommy's remaining powers and Zedd's dressing down of TurbanShell when he left when the Rangers were on the back-foot. Later, TurbanShell was about to finish Tommy off entirely but Goldar made an appearance, having apparently convinced Zedd to at least let him torture his archenemy and told the monster that he would continue torturing Tommy while TurbanShell resumed his destruction of Angel Grove. TurbanShell was hesitant at first and wanted to be the one to finish Tommy, but Goldar threatened him and reminded him of his status as an underling, letting him know that Lord Zedd has other plans for him. TurbanShell continued to attack Angel Grove after Goldar takes over his place. Goldar "welcomed" Tommy as just his civilian identity because he was no longer the Green Ranger and summoned Z-Putties to restrain him whilst he used some form of dimensional remote to project a holographic screen in the sky and torture him with images and reminders of what he once was. This included unseen footage of him and Trini fighting the Invenusable Flytrap, unseen footage of him posing prior to losing his powers, and the Dragonzord emerging from Angel Grove Quay from when he was still under Rita's spell.

This seemed to break Tommy to the point of groveling which delighted Goldar so he tried to make Tommy admit he was superior before he was slain. However, Tommy had been playing along the whole time and went on the attack with his opening attack being a powerful jump punch to the chest and then disarmed Goldar. Although Tommy fought hard, he was overwhelmed by Goldar's strength. Goldar then prepared to finish him off but the time device was kicked out of his hands and caught by Tommy. Tommy then revealed that he remained sane because the clips reminded him of that he was a good person, Ranger or not. When he got back up, Tommy backed off but immediately teleported Goldar back to Lord Zedd much to his confusion and anger. He was later present when Tommy smashed the Green Crystal and freed the Dark Rangers which upset Zedd. However, the defeat of TurbanShell proved to be a pyrrhic victory since the Green Crystal was successful in draining Tommy's powers and he lost them for good. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Green No More

Following his success in stealing Tommy's powers, Lord Zedd decided to drain the remaining Power Rangers' powers. To this end, he sent Goldar to kidnap them and, although they morphed, he was able to teleport them all away by firing flames at them from his sword. He teleported them to the Dark Dimension where Goldar showed the new versions of the Green Candles and lit them, slowly draining the Rangers' powers. In the meantime, Zedd created Pipebrain to delay or destroy Jason long enough for Zedd to drain away his powers, forcing Jason to overcome his guilt to save his friends. Jason became resolute and defeated Pipebrain with the Red Dragon Thunderzord and arrived in the Dark Dimension.

There were just a few moments remaining for the candles when Jason arrived, much to Goldar's surprise since he had just proclaimed that Jason would be unable to come. Although Goldar threw him down immediately, Jason eventually sent him flying into the candle holder. This knocked over all four candles igniting the gas around the room and starting a fire in the Dark Dimension which forced Goldar to flee and allowed Jason to save his friends and escape. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Missing Green

Seeing the Rangers were still depressed about Tommy's lost powers, Lord Zedd saw that Kimberly was a hardest hit and decided to make her his queen to conquer the Earth. As she went to a fortune teller called Madam Swampy, Zedd sent down his Putties and Goldar outside Madam Swampy's shop where he proclaimed that he knew her future. She declined and defeated a Putty but he lunged forward and grabbed her. Although she resisted, Goldar sprayed her with golden dust which knocked her out so Goldar and the Putties could teleport her to a cave. When Zordon informed the remaining Power Rangers, Zedd used his "favorite tactic" and had some Putties attack Richie and Curtis to force the other Rangers to defend them and delay them to allow Zedd to fully corrupt Kimberly into his bride. This division of the Power Rangers bought enough time for Goldar to put Kimberly in a human version of Rita's outfit. However, whatever was supposed to brainwash her was useless and she play-acted as Rita both to bide time and get some revenge by screaming at him and Squatt and Baboo. After they finished off the Putties, Billy and Trini entered the cave themselves and Kimberly happily went along with them to Goldar's intense anger. Kimberly demanded them to retrieve her Morpher and communicator but Goldar attacked although they kicked him flat on the ground and withdrew to Goldar's horror. Zedd then sent down his Mirror Maniac but he was defeated. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Beauty and the Beast

A massive solar storm was on its way to Angel Grove and Zedd knew that this was a once every one hundred years storm and decided to use the increased electricity in the air to manipulate the Earth's polarity and cause doomsday. To this end, he decided to use Billy's special science project called a Polarizer to create a monster to manipulate said polarity and sent down Goldar with the Putty Patrol to steal it. He demanded the Polarizer and sicked the Putties on Billy but he flipped forward three times because physics and double kicked Goldar flat on his back but he immediately recovered and the Putties actually attacked. Goldar remained out of the remainder of the battle and succeeded in stealing the Polarizer which he teleported away with, leaving his flunkies to their doom. The Polarizer was abandoned on a pathway in the Park as Goldar was ordered back to the Moon Palace and Zedd created Magnet Brain from it who messed with the stratosphere.

Presently, Zedd saw Kimberly exposed by the polarity issues alongside the Angel Grove Angelettes and sent down Goldar with the Putties again to take her out. Although she had left because they took a long time to arrive for some reason, they began to terrorize the Angelettes to try and force a response and got one in the form of recently created White Ranger Tommy Oliver. Goldar summoned Putties (despite Zordon earlier saying he already had some) but Tommy easily defeated them and forced Goldar to fight himself. Tommy started their duel by jumping up and then Superman gliding at him and sending him flying with a single glide punch to the chest. However, Goldar summoned more Putties and Tommy was forced to flee temporarily to avoid the Angelettes getting caught in the crossfire. Once he easily dealt with them, he challenged Goldar to single combat who accepted but Tommy blocked two slashes with Saba and jumped over the third before kicking Goldar's sword away. They had a momentary stand-off before Goldar tried to take out Tommy's legs only for him to dive over it and block a bisecting hit from Goldar before shoving it away and forcing Goldar back with two kicks. Goldar came back with three stabs and a slash but Tommy dodged them all before forcing an arm lock though he then broke it. Goldar forced him to backpedal but he fought back and slashed him back with Saba and then further with a kick to the midriff. After Magnet Brain made Jason and Zack's Blade Blasters misfire, Tommy leapt into the air and levitated forward whilst multi-kicking Goldar who swiftly went flying to the ground. Goldar tried to go in for more but two Putties arrived and held him back as he swore revenge in the future before he returned to the Moon Palace in disgrace. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Opposites Attract

On Halloween, Lord Zedd was very happy to see a holiday that he could enjoy and decided that it would be a good time to take out Tommy and leave the Power Rangers so weak that a monster on the same power level as Nimrod could destroy them. To this end, he sent down Putties disguised as children in Power Ranger uniforms who led Tommy away from the other Rangers. Once he was alone, Goldar ambushed him and the Putties revealed themselves and attacked him with Goldar teleporting him to the Haunted Forest even after he defeated the Putties. Unfortunately, even though the Key Monster locked the dimension tight, the Power Rangers entered and saved their friend whilst also defeating the Pumpkin Rapper. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Zedd's Monster Mash

At the Ninja Martial Arts Competition and Lord Zedd takes a liking to three cruel dark colored ninjas from Casper City and fancies them as his new evil team of ninjas. By the time that Jacob Anderson has been rescued from a potentially fatal stroller crash, everything is ready and Zedd assigns Goldar the mission of kidnapping the teens although not before they won the competition. However, later that afternoon, they still haven't been kidnapped and Zedd demands to know why. Goldar responds that they have been defeated in the competition by new Stone Canyon arrivals Rocky DeSantos, Adam Park and Aisha Campbell, Annoyed, Zedd decides to make them his new Dark Rangers instead since they are far more competent and he only needs the best to defeat the Power Rangers. He sends Goldar down who appears as their teacher, Mr. Anderson, and congratulates them for their success outside of the Youth Center and Goldar gives his own congratulations before sending his Putties after the Rangers. Goldar then takes his captives to the Cave of Despair where they are all chained together. Goldar tells them how special they are for being chosen although not before he has to clarify who Lord Zedd is but they refuse to join. Goldar of course retorts that this isn't something that they can choose not or not to do and gives them more time to mull over their decisions before teleporting and leaving them in the guard of his Putties. Tvicon.png TV STORY-The Ninja Encounter-part I

Goldar reports back to Lord Zedd and tells him that he needs more time to break them which Zedd rebuts since it is only a matter of time until the Rangers find them. Goldar reminds him how strong they are so Zedd decides to distract the Power Rangers with a toxic monster before using his telescopic vision to spy out some blossom trees. Using his magic, Zedd throws up quite a lot of wind which tosses some flowers off of the trees he creates his Terror Blossom monster from the fallen petals. Goldar later returns to the Cave of Despair to find the ninjas have escaped using a hairpin from Aisha and have defeated the Putties. Goldar then uses fire from his sword to restrain them in an inescapable chain as the last three Putties restrain them to the wall before asking for their answers and they refuse. Goldar then reveals his plan; use the bite of the Serpent of Darkness to turn them into mindless drones in such a way that they cannot be turned back to good like Tommy was.

When the Power Rangers all confront the Terror Blossom, Goldar worries that this will be the end of their plan but Zedd makes him grow. Goldar returns a short while later to the Cave of Despair and asks them to join him but Adam refuses. Goldar is annoyed but thinks that they will soon obey anyway before leaving. However, his prediction proves inaccurate because the Putties guarding the cave entrance are soon defeated by the Power Rangers and the Terror Blossom destroyed. The hostages are then freed, though not before finding out who the Power Rangers really are. Tvicon.png TV STORY-The Ninja Encounter-part III

The teenagers at Angel Grove High create their own Peace Conference with six delegates from other countries and Lord Zedd decides to kidnap them to try and sabotage the conference. In the process, he plans to turn them into his new Dark Rangers. As Tommy teaches Pablo swing kicks in the park with the other ambassadors, Zedd sends down Goldar and the Putties to kidnap them. As Tommy, Kimberly, Billy and the ninja trio go to defeat the Putties, Goldar appears with a squadron of even more Putties who grab onto the ambassadors and march them off the battlefield. In the mountains, Goldar and the Putties lead the ambassadors to a cave where they restrain the teens behind a large forcefield until Zedd gets the Power Coins. As the ninja trio leave to try and find the ambassadors at the Youth Center, where Billy told chairwoman Tamara to go, a note flutters down from the mountain and the Rangers find it is a ransom note. Give Goldar, and by extension Zedd, their Power Coins or the ambassadors will vanish forever.

Within the hour. the Rangers meet Goldar near the caves where they are being held hostage and hand over their Power Coins, giving them to Goldar who then reveals that he has no intention of releasing the hostages. The Rangers reveal that they have learned from their previous mistake and have supplanted their real Coins with chocolate ones so Goldar sends in the Putty guards. However, they defeat the Putties and force Goldar to flee as they release the hostages. Enraged, Goldar swears revenge but the Power Rangers regroup to finish him off and Goldar has to retreat. This allows the Rangers to release the hostages which enrages Zedd, who then creates Four Head, but she is defeated after a lengthy battle. Tvicon.png TV STORY-A Monster of Global Proportions

Zedd watches over the Earth and realizes that half of the Power Rangers have to attend a Swedish Peace Conference and delights in how crippled this will make the team.  As such, he decides to go straight for the proverbial jugular and powers up Serpentera to destroy the Earth for good although he first sends down Squatt and Baboo to Earth with a special designed sleep machine to send everyone in the world to sleep and prevent Zordon from recruiting new Rangers. However, he soon realizes that they are headed to a Deserted Planet to obtain the Sword of Light that would allow them to transfer Jason, Zack and Trini’s powers to successors. As such, Zedd decides to annihilate them with Serpentera’s raw power. Zedd and Goldar set out in Serpentera shortly thereafter although Zedd forces Goldar to pilot it alone whilst he lounges around and monologues. As five of the Power Rangers head for the statue, Jason summons the Red Dragon Thunderzord as well as the Thunderzord Assault Team to try and confront the colossal Evil Zord although it and Tor the Shuttlezord are soon defeated and let go ater a display of power. Zedd, realizing that they won’t be able to find the statue before the Rangers, decides that there is no kill like overkill and decides to destroy the entire planet with the Rangers on it. Goldar refuses due to the power drain so Zedd does it himself by hitting a cliché big red button. As such, Serpentera unleashes a devastating lightning blast that consumes the planet’s surface. Tvicon.png TV STORY-The Power Transfer-part I

After the Stone Canyon trio destroy the Sleep Machine, Serpentera continues attacking the city before Zedd decides again to destroy the city. Once more, Goldar refuses due to the power drain so Zedd does it himself by hitting a red button. As such, Serpentera unleashes a devastating lightning blast that consumes the planet’s surface. This seemingly kills the Power Rangers and destroys the planet so Zedd makes his way back but soon realizes that the Power Rangers escaped in good time. Zedd then returns to Earth in Serpentera but realizes that the Power Rangers have survived and isn’t able to arrive quickly enough to stop Rocky, Adam and Aisha from getting the Red, Black and Yellow Ranger powers. Bored and realizing that Serpentera won’t reach the Earth anytime soon, Zedd spots a tick in the park and creates the Silver Horns monster to at the very least delay the Power Rangers Serpentera later arrives as Zedd makes Silver Horns grows and lands as Silver Horns meets the White Tigerzord. However, it runs out of power due to the excess used to destroy the Deserted Planet and Goldar and Zedd sit out the fight. Once Silver Horns is destroyed, Zedd asks if they have enough power to which Goldar responds that they only have enough to return to the Moon Palace. Enraged, Zedd kicks the cockpit in frustration before withdrawing although not before swearing revenge for this in the future. Tvicon.png TV STORY-The Power Transfer-part II

Angel Grove High organizes a vice-versa dance but Adam is reluctant to go as he has no one to go with. Sensing an opportunity to lure the Rangers into a deadly trap, Zedd has Scorpina disguise herself as a new student named Sabrina. As she takes Adam and Aisha on a date to Angel Grove Park, Zedd sends Goldar and the Putties down to spring the trap. When Adam tells "Sabrina" to get back, Scorpina refuses and reveals herself and the revelation of that is enough for Goldar to tie them to a tree whilst they are distracted. Fortunately, the other Rangers arrive and save Adam and Aisha by Billy slicing through the rope with his Power Lance. The Rangers then wipe out the Putties whilst Tommy (having since become the White Ranger) takes on Goldar and Scorpina. The two put up a frankly pathetic attempt at fighting Tommy, immediately getting split kicked down and out of the fight. Fortunately, the other Rangers arrive and wipe out the Putties whilst Tommy (having since become the White Ranger) takes on Goldar and Scorpina. Tommy jump slashes thier weapons away from him so they give him ground. However, he then kicks back Goldar, blocks a swing from Scorpina, and smacks away Goldar’s sword. Tommy then jumps over a Goldar sword swing, kicks away his sword, and kicks him away. After Billy rescues the hostages with his Power Lance, allowing them to morph, Tommy immediately split kicks them down and out of the fight entirely. With the Putties gone, Zedd throws one of his Growth Grenades which grows Goldar and Scorpina so the Power Rangers summon the Thunder Megazord whilst Tommy summons his White Tigerzord. Once Scorpina's stinger completely fails to faze the White Tigerzord, allowing it to assume Warrior Mode, the Thunder Megazord energy slashes the two villains down with the Thunder Saber finisher. To follow it up, the White Tigerzord blasts them with its White Tiger Thunderbolts but neither Scorpina and Goldar are fazed. Scorpina's claws blasts combined with Goldar's eye blasts are then strong enough to wipe out the Thunder Megazord and force the White Tigerzord back into Tiger Mode. Fortunately, Tommy rallies the Rangers and re-energizes his Zord before summoning Tor the Shuttlezord and the Thunderzords form the Thunder Ultrazord. Rather than crush the two arch-villains, they just blast down the two who are hurt enough to be forced to retreat whilst quoting Oliver Goldsmith. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Goldar's Vice-Versa

Adam is acting as a tutor to a young bullied karate student named Shawn who has self-esteem and confidence issues. Lord Zedd decides to sabotage this by ruining his confidence with the Mirror of Regret via Goldar. Said mirror is, as Zedd puts it, "a window into the scenes of less confident days." Anyone exposed to it for a significant amount of time would have thier confidence drained out of them like a plughole in a bath tub. The only way to reverse the effects is for the victim to regain thier confidence themselves without anyone else's help. As Adam mentors Shawn in Angel Grove Park, Zedd sends Goldar and the Putty Patrol to ambush Adam in Angel Grove Park. They arrive shortly after Shawn leaves and Adam decides to pack up and leave with Goldar having snuck up on him. Even so, Adam believes that Goldar cannot defeat him so the latter sends in his Putties to teach the Black Ranger a lesson. Though he slays many of them, which includes a now infamous bit where the Putties are so pathetic that Adam manages to defeat eight of them in a tug of war, Goldar blinds Adam by throwing up mist with his sword which allows him to summon the Mirror and show him a memory of him not being picked for kickball. Adam is unfazed by this but Goldar has two Putties restrain Adam and force him to look into the Mirror of Regret and watch a bully call him a pipsqueak which has a profoundly detrimental effect on Adam. With Adam's confidence waning, Zedd decides to send a monster to destroy the other Power Rangers and thus Lord Zedd creates the Skelerena monster who he sends with an army of Putties to the Park. However, the Mirror of Regret eventually shows Shawn doing well which helps him regain his confidence, breaking the spell. Adam then destroys them and Goldar has to retreat with the Mirror of Regret to the Moon Palace with the scheme once again a dismal failure. With Adam's confidence restored, he morphs and joins up with the others which allows them to summon thier brand new Power Cannon to finish off Skelerena. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Mirror of Regret

After Adam gives a class presentation on the properties of kaleidoscopes, Zedd has the idea to use light refraction to erase the Power Rangers' memory of ever being Rangers and render the Earth defenceless. After school, Goldar sends down a platoon of Putties to ambush Kimberly, Billy and Tommy as they take a stroll home through the Park having bought a new kaleidoscope from a store on the way. Though they are easily wiped out, Zedd creates the Scatterbrain monster from the kaleidoscope which Kimberly dropped during the battle and the monster erases the trio's memory. Later, once the memory-less Rangers refuse to go to the Command Center, Goldar arrives with a platoon of Putties which convinces the three to accompany thier comrades much to his dismay. With nothing better to do, and with a monster already in play, Goldar withdraws rather than going into battle. Although Scatterbrain manages to erase the remaining Rangers' memories, Bulk and Skull save them and the Thunder Megazord finishes the job. Tvicon.png TV STORY-When Is A Ranger Not A Ranger?

When Rocky enjoys playing Ernie's new play automate on the game Pachinko, Zedd casts a spell on it which causes Rocky to have an unhealthy addiction to having fun. Rocky thinks only about games which Zedd hopes will distract the other Rangers long enough for him to attack with Serpentera to Earth. This idea fails so he has to create the Pachinko Head monster to keep them busy though he is swiftly slain. Serpentera arrives immediately after the Thunder Megazord slays the monster and rips apart the formation with its lightning. With the Red Dragon Thunderzord completely down and exposed, Rocky summons Tor to counteract it. Barely dodging the Zord’s foot, it rolls and enters Tor in Warrior Mode’s armor but Serpentera kicks it over and back into Shuttle Mode. Although it spends about half a minute grinding Tor into the ground, the attempt somehow drains over half of Serpentera's power and Zedd and Goldar are forced to retreat back to the Moon once again. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Rocky Just Wants to Have Fun

When the Power Rangers are going on Harvey Garvey's TV show to promote education, Lord Zedd sees it as a chance to get rid of them once and for all or at least ruin thier public image. As such, he sends down Goldar and an army of Putties to capture them so that he can create evil twins to spread bad messages and smear thier reputations. Goldar and the Putties ambush the Rangers as they walk home through the Park but the Putties are soon fended off when the Rangers morph and Goldar gets progressively angrier as they continue failing until he is sent flying by a kick from Rocky. His pride wounded, Goldar withdraws with the last four Putties though not before proclaiming that they "haven't seen the last of me this day." The failure of this attempted capture leads Zedd to abandon his Evil Ranger plot and go for the traditional "send in monster and hope it works" plot-line although not before Zedd gives Goldar a severe dressing down. Once the Showbiz Monster sics his Putties on the Power Rangers, Zedd likes his strategy of "sit there and do nothing" so sends Goldar in to defeat Tommy though not without a warning to not come back without Tommy's head. Jumping straight down from the Moon to Earth, Goldar challenges Tommy to fight him so the White Ranger has to to sit out the Zord fight to fight Goldar whilst the others deal with the monster and his Putties. Drawing Saba, Tommy kicks and punches Goldar but he ducks under a swing kick and Tommy has to block a sword swing. Rolling away from a sword slash, they blade lock hard enough to generate loud booms before breaking apart for a moment's respite. Though Zedd quickly enlarges the Showbiz Monster with a Growth Bomb, Tommy is forced to sit out the Zord fight to combat Goldar. After the Thunder Megazord inevitably slays the Showbiz Monster, they blade lock hard enough to generate loud booms before breaking apart before Goldar gives up and retreats to the Moon Palace although Goldylocks swears that he will return with a vengeance. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Lights, Camera, Action

Lord Zedd apparently picks up on a massive energy reading and goes after it in Serpentera, finding it to be a UFO piloted by a Bookala from the planet of the same name. This is because Zedd realizes that the gem powering the ship (a Lightning Diamond) can provide Serpentera with infinite power and thus he can easily conquer or destroy the Earth. Serpentera shoots down the vessel but the Rangers find it and initiate repairs so Zedd creates Weldo to steal the Lightning Diamond for him but he is easily slain. Frustrated, and somehow not seeing the fake Bookala doll, Zedd sends down Goldar and the Putties who manage to steal the Lightning Diamond at which point he “politely” asks for the Lightning Diamond so they refuse and he sends in the Putties. However, they are easily dispatched and Billy taunts him into charging but he kicks away Billy, cuts down Aisha and slams Adam in the helmet with the butt of his sword. Sweeping out Rocky’s feet, he elbows away Kimberly before backhanding Tommy away and grabbing the Lightning Diamond before gloating about their upcoming demise before teleporting back onto Serpentera. Zedd is his usual impatient self by strumming his fingers but Goldar appears with the Lightning Diamond to his shock whilst Goldar inserts the Lightning Diamond into the Power Grid.

As they enter Earth’s atmosphere however, Bookala makes his escape attempt and Lord Zedd orders Goldar to fire on it but Serpentera is crippled by something. They realize too late that they have been tricked by the Rangers when Goldar takes the Lightning Diamond (which is in fact a fake designed to trick the villains) out of Serpentera's power grid and it fries into nothing. Furious over his lost chance to steal the diamond, and with Serpentera too badly damaged to even consider attacking the Earth directly, Zedd turns the fake Bookala into an evil version of the original to trick them into a trap. When this fails, Zedd enlarges his monster but the Zord fight fails and he and Goldar have to retreat back to the Moon Palace. Tvicon.png TV STORY-The Great Bookala Escape

Aisha’s old friend from Stone Canyon Shawna Hilton comes to Angel Grove for the annual gymnastics tournament between the two cities but is extremely bitter with Aisha about her skipping town for no reason apparent to Shawna. Seeing a chance to make the Rangers distrust each other by kidnapping Kimberly and Shawna and making Aisha look like she sat back and let it happen, Lord Zedd deploys Goldar to kidnap Kimberly and Shawna to use as bait. Goldar attacks as Kimberly, Aisha and Shawna have a picnic to try and mend fences (which is going abysmally anyway since Shawna bites Aisha’s head off over her forgetting which grade they met in). Though they put their picnic table between themselves and Goldar, he immediately blasts Kimberly and Shawna with energy beams from his sword and teleports them away before teleporting off himself even as Aisha demands that they are brought back. As it turns out, Kimberly and Shawna have been teleported into a forcefield hidden within a cave just outside Angel Grove and Putties as guards. Even with Kimberly captured, the Power Rangers are able to save Kimberly and Shawna before regrouping and slaying to defeat the Jaws of Destruction.

However, after the hostages are released and Kimberly morphs, Goldar is sent down by Zedd (though not before getting a good yelling at) and forces Tommy into a duel which takes him out of the fight against the monster. Once Kimberly leaves to help the other Rangers, Tommy draws Saba, kicks away Goldar’s sword, and kicks him away before they clash swords, Tommy ducks under a swing and they clash swords thrice more. Goldar tries to kick down Tommy but gets kicked back himself instead before Tommy jumps into the air, spins, and slashes down Goldar. After the Jaws of Destruction is slain, Tommy and Goldar continue clashing swords before the former kicks his sword away but allows him to retreat in disgrace. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Forever Friends

Rocky is acting as a volunteer lifeguard at Angel Grove Lake and is trying to motivate some children by claiming that he has never seen a monster in the lake. Inspired, Lord Zedd speaks to Goldar and decides to bring forth an army of fish monsters to destroy the Power Rangers through sheer numbers and prove Rocky wrong. After Bulk and Skull cause a false shark attack, Goldar informs Zedd that three of the Power Rangers have gone scuba diving and are thus unavailable but his master goes ahead anyway. Lord Zedd first resurrects the Slippery Shark right in front of Rocky, Billy and Aisha as they stand guard over the Lake and they morph. After the Slippery Shark beats down Rocky, Aisha and Billy with help from Pirantishead and the Goo Fish, Zedd has Goldar send down Commander Crayfish to finish things off. After the scheme’s inevitable failure, Zedd asks Goldar what's for dinner and Goldar answers fish and chips much to his rage. Tvicon.png TV STORY-A Reel Fish Story

Mrs Appleby has her class bring in nostalgic items from their childhood to talk about as part of a class project. However, this inspires Lord Zedd to use the Rock of Time to regress the Earth by ten years, turning the Power into children with no memories of being Power Rangers and thus let him easily conquer the world. Goldar gives him praise throughout and, when Appleby is confused by the clocks turning backwards, suggests speeding things along just to be sadistic and Zedd does just that. After watching younger Bulk and Skull embarrass themselves with Billy’s kite, Zedd decides that enough is enough and has Goldar send down a legion of Putties (in actuality only six) to destroy them all. However, the Power Rangers still manage to destroy his Putties with a dodgeball despite being regressed so Zedd realizes that he needs to use more direct and blunt methods. Goldar suggests sending a monster to kill the regressed teens so Zedd creates the Photomare who successfully traps them within a photograph. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Rangers Back In Time-part I

However, Bulk and Skull (who have been stalking the Power Rangers in hope of protection after the Putty attack) obtain the Ranger photograph and flee so Goldar is sent after them to retrieve the photograph of the six kids and destroy them for good. As the duo run away from the Photomare, Goldar cuts them off and menaces them to fork over the photograph to him with the Photomare cutting off their escape. Fortunately, since Goldar likes terrorizing kids for very prolonged periods of time, Alpha is able to finish his Molecular Descrambler and teleport to the confrontation as Goldar threatens the two with Photomare making them into a photograph. He then uses the Descrambler’s stun scanner to temporarily freeze Goldar and the Photomare in their tracks using some laser scanner that he has but has to pursue Bulk and Skull to get back the Ranger photograph.  Goldar and the Photomare soon unfreeze but are too late to prevent the restoration but attack the countryside outside of Angel Grove. Goldar oversees the Photomare take more victims but is soon horrified by the arrival of the newly restored teenage forms who Alpha has restored in the meantime.

Realizing that his plan is falling apart at the seams, Zedd uses a Growth Bomb to make his monster grow. Rocky is chosen to take on the Photomare alone whilst the other Power Rangers fight Goldar who soon summons the Putty Patrol. Soon however, whilst the other Power Rangers have to leave the fight to help Rocky take on the now giant Photomare and her Copyzord with Tommy wiping out the Putty Patrol before they can even finish forming it. Immediately after the Thunder Megazord is formed, Goldar and Tommy have a pose-off even as the Copyzord jump kicks back the Thunder Megazord. After exchanging some taunts, they run at each other but Tommy jumps a slash, ducks another, and block Goldar’s sword by crossing his arms and he throws off the blade only to be kicked back. Whilst the Thunder Megazord gets the Copyzord in a choke-hold and tosses it down, Tommy flips back up to his feet and blocks a swing from Goldar so they wrestle over the sword until Tommy double punches it away before they block each other’s punches and Tommy punches Goldylocks away. Though Goldar swears revenge, Tommy flips over Goldar, bounces off of a metal pillar or something and double kicks Goldar away. Tommy pulls out Saba and they run at each other, Tommy deflecting a slash and shrugging off a stab to the chest before deflecting two more lunges and rolling to one side. As the Thunder Megazord blasts the monster and her Evil Zord with lightning, Tommy and Goldar clash swords before Tommy throws it off, deflects a swing and swing kicks Goldar to the floor which he claims is a lucky hit. However, before Goldar can recover, the remaining five Power Rangers finish off Photomare and join up with Tommy.

Despite Photomare’s death however, the Rock of Time remains an active threat so the Power Rangers have to find and destroy it and Goldar leaves. However, when Lord Zedd sees the Power Rangers making their way to the Rock of Time, he sends Goldar down with some Putties and the resurrected Invenusable Flytrap, the Dramole, and the Oysterizer to aid him in battle. Whilst Tommy and Aisha fight the Putties, Goldar knocks Aisha back with a strike to her helmet with his sword but a slash to her is blocked by Saba. After the Oysterizer smacks down Billy with his pearl on a chain, Tommy jump kicks Goldar and Aisha does the same but he spins to the right to avoid it. Tommy and Aisha next jump kick but Goldar deflects it with his sword and they have to dodge back from his sword only to both be struck down anyway. Though beaten back, the Power Rangers then equip their Power Weapons and swiftly beat back the enemy. Tommy and Aisha fight Goldar, the latter blocking a swing at her head and shrugging off a kick before jabbing him back. Double teaming him, Saba blocks a slash whilst Aisha kicks Goldar back. Outnumbered, since the Power Weapons have made short work out of his monsters, Goldar has to retreat. With Goldar gone, the Rangers summon the Power Cannon and obliterate the Rock of Time which returns time to normal and renders yet another of Zedd's schemes a complete dismal failure.

Marriage

Lord Zedd has to enter his thousand-year sleep and leaves Goldar in charge of the Moon Palace in the meantime although no attacks shall be launched in his absence. After Zordon goes into hibernation whilst Zedd is inert, Goldar helps Zedd go off to sleep before leaving to do chores or something. Tvicon.png TV STORY-The Wedding-part I

However, Rita returns to the moon and Goldar finds her in Lord Zedd's bedroom after his summons him so calls on the Putties to restrain her. However, much to his horror, Rita and Finster have created a love potion and enchanted Zedd (not that he realizes this yet) so he forces Goldar to stop as he is infatuated with her now. Much to Goldar’s abject horror, Zedd then announces his plans to marry Rita which Goldar is helpless to stop and is even ordered to plan said wedding since he has been selected to be the “worst man.” Goldar is completely disgusted when Zedd refuses to listen to reason and storms out to do his master’s bidding once he tells Goldylocks to bow to his future queen. Rita and Zedd hold a toast of dry ice to their wedding but Goldar lingers in the background with the goal of undoing whatever Rita has done to Lord Zedd and restore his former position of power. Much later, Goldar stands around pouring something from a large flask as he bemoans the wedding though he eats some concessions before Zedd has him send in the monsters to properly begin the ceremony. Tvicon.png TV STORY-The Wedding-part II

Goldar confronts Lord Zedd and asks if he is genuine about his feelings but his master brushes him off dismissively. A few moments later, Goldar and Finster approach Zedd with a positive status report but, once Zedd asks Goldar to have the musicians play, Goldar reveals that he forgot to hire so (although this was clearly an attempt to sabotage the wedding). Unfortunately for Goldar, Zedd improvises by making the Snizzard his piano player and the wedding goes ahead anyway. When Finster asks if anyone objects to the wedding, Goldar pipes up but Rita shut up with a smack from her wedding bouquet and thus finally marries Zedd much to Goldar’s anger. Right afterwards, Finster asks for the ring which Goldar pretends to have lost but Rita realizes that he is holding it and takes it. Goldar can then only watch on horrified as Zedd slips the ring onto Rita’s ring finger and the marriage is made official. During the after-party, Goldar sits and mopes about his failure and the return of his hated mistress. . Shortly thereafter however, just as Rita and Zedd begin a game of “99 bottles of slime on the wall, Goldar discovers that the Power Rangers have outsmarted the immensely dense Peckster and the Rhinoblaster and have escaped. He reports this to his masters and Zedd orders him to send the entire monster army to Earth to cut them off. Goldar rallies and then sends the entire monster army along with Putties to Earth but they end up failing horrendously anyway However, they are all soon wiped out and Rita and Zedd withdraw to the Moon Palace in disgrace.

Post-Marriage

Sometime after Rita and Zedd's wedding, Scorpina becomes completely disillusioned with Rita and begins to desire power so starts to read her spell books. However, it is a trap (probably set to either test her loyalty or to find who had been breaking into her library) and she is found by Rita and Goldar before being banished to the Talos Dimension. Although Scorpina would return thirty four years later, under the master-ship of Lokar, this is the last time she and Goldar ever interact. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Power Rangers: Soul of the Dragon

Goldar reports to Lord Zedd about a plan by Rita to make Tommy and Kimberly hate each other during the school president elections but is just told to spy on her. Rita sends a letter to Tommy soon after which lures him to the Park where Goldar and the Putty Patrol ambushes him. Tommy morphs and fights the Putties, defeating many but Goldar quickly cuts him down before mocking him for his weak performance and sends in the Putties to finish him off. Zordon calls the other Rangers to help so they morph and free thier leader from a Putty scrum. When they arrive though, Rita's spell on Tommy and Kimberly leads to them bickering on the battlefield and beating down Putties in the process. Goldar fails to interrupt thier argument at first and just stands around awkwardly and is refused when he interrupts. Tired of waiting, he forces her to listen by punching her and Tommy down before stealing Saba from Tommy. The Rangers try to prevent the theft but Tommy and Kimberly collide and Goldar uses Saba's own lasers against them which makes them flee to the Command Center. Goldar later accompanies Rita alongside Squatt and Baboo down to Earth for the White Tigerzord vs Thunder Megazord fight and cheers as the Rangers are nearly defeated. However, Tommy uses a special magnet to retrieve Saba so Rita withdraws herself and the minions to avoid being crushed under the Tigerzord's foot. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Best Man for the Job

After Lord Zedd returned from his imprisonment, he compliments Goldar, Finster, Squatt and Baboo for staying and trying to destroy the Rangers in his absence and Zedd recruits them for a new mission. After the monster Psychoslug is defeated, Zedd reveals that in reality that was his plan to power up the Green Chaos Crystal and with this he transformed Goldar and the rest into a new team of Dark Rangers, with Goldar becoming the Yellow Ranger on said team.

After getting their team leader in the form of a Rita Repulsa copy made out of putty, Goldar and the Dark Rangers start causing chaos in order to attract the Rangers. When the Rangers arrive, the Dark Rangers separate and attack the team, with Goldar going for both Kimberly and Aisha. He attacks the duo whilst he claims satisfaction due to finally getting the upper hand on them. Goldar and his team later seek cover as they are shot at by the Ranger's Blade Blasters until Lord Zedd gets the Chaos Crystal closer to them so that they can amplify their strength, resulting in the creation of their own zords, the Terrorzords.

Goldar attacks Kimberly and Aisha.

The Terrorzords later combine to form the Mega Terrorzord which fights against the Mega Tigerzord and the Red Dragon Thunderzord. Despite being a two on one fight, the Dark Rangers were beating the Mighty Morphin Rangers while their leader Zedd watches with great satisfaction until a mysterious Green Ranger attacks him and breals the Chaos Crystal, leaving Goldar and the rest without their Ranger powers and thus being forced to retreat.

Video game appearances

Power Rangers: Super Legends

Goldar is the main villain in the Mighty Morphin' section of the Power Rangers: Super Legends. He is first seen complaining about Rita making him do her dirty work once again. Suddenly, Lord Zedd appears in a time hole and tells him to contaminate Angel Grove's water supply, zombifying everyone there to form an army of Z-Putties. Goldar follows Zedd's demands, however the Power Rangers are hot on his tail. The "chase" ends at Angel Grove, where Goldar is ready to contaminate the water supply, however the Power Rangers stop him and he is forced to grow but he is defeated in the Megazord battle. In the game, he is voiced by prolific video game voice actor Nolan North.

Power Rangers Legacy Wars

Goldar is among the villains who feature in Power Rangers Legacy Wars as an Epic (Leader), Rare (Assist) character,as mega Goldar is a Rare (Zord).

Power Rangers Battle For The Grid

Goldar is a playable character in Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid. He uses his sword as his weapon.

Personality

Unlike many other henchmen, Goldar was one of the few who was capable of holding his own against the entire Power Ranger team. As time went by in the series, Goldar's character became less threatening and more comical. He was a dangerous fighter initially, being able to defeat the original team in battle single-handedly. Later, however, he began to lose his edge, with Jason handing him his first major defeat in the episode "Missing Green." After this point he was apparently less powerful, losing to the Rangers more and more in combat. Goldar was close comrades with Scorpina and appeared to be hugging her at several points with them sharing an apparent romantic interest in each other. In fact, in the script for the unfinished episode, "Zordon, I Shrunk The Rangers", Goldar and Scorpina had a date planned but Zedd and Rita forced the two to go on a mission much to Goldar's dismay and Scorpina's annoyance. Goldar had a bit of friendship with Rito though he was more often than not annoyed with Rito's bumbling but overall the two shared a good relationship. Towards the end of Season 2, beginning specifically with the episode “A Reel Fish Story,” Goldar was portrayed as getting much dumber than he ever was before. From that point onwards, especially after the introduction of Rito Revolto, he was far more comedic and sillier with no moments of genuine malice. Though Goldar very strongly objected to Rita’s marriage to Zedd and was openly hostile towards her at every given opportunity, when Zedd admitted that he had grown to actually love Rita even without the love potion, he became far more mellow and much less passive aggressive towards her.

Upon being resurrected as Goldar Maximus, he returned to his angrier and more menacing persona but was even more angry than ever before though he was intensely loyal to Evox.

Forms and Powers

Goldar.png

Powers and Abilities

Powers

  • Power Level: Goldar was the fourth most powerful member of the Evil Space Aliens, stronger than Squatt, Baboo, and Finster and roughly on par with Rito Revolto. However, Rita, Zedd, and Master Vile were all still much stronger than him.
  • Teleportation: Goldar could make himself vanish into thin air so that he can avoid attacks. Starting with Season 2, he always left in a large cloud of orange flame although he vanished in the same way as Season 1 in the episode "Goldar's Vice-Versa."
  • Putty Summoning: Goldar could summon both versions of the Putty Patrol to aid him in fighting the Rangers.
    • Tenga Summoning: After the Tenga Warriors replaced the Putties as the foot soldiers of Rita and Zedd, Goldar was able to freely summon them as well.
  • Eye Fireballs: Goldar could shoot fireball blasts from his eyes which were powerful enough to cause massive explosions around Jason whilst fleeing from him and King Sphinx. When combined with Scorpina's claw barrage, it took down the Thunder Megazord and forced the White Tigerzord back into its default Tiger Mode.
  • Self Growth-In the episode "A Star is Born," Goldar and Scorpina clearly enlarged themselves to aid Babe Ruthless given Rita being under the weather.
  • Longevity: Goldar can live for millions of years.
  • Strength: Goldar seriously shook up the Dino Megazord's cockpit with a single slash and an extremely powerful double kick was enough to knock back the Dino Megazord. Later on, in episodes such as "Eclipsing Megazord" and "Crystal of Nightmares", he was strong enough to take down the Megazord with Scorpina's help.
  • Durability: Goldar was struck by the energized Power Sword and Thunder Saber and a fireball from the White Tigerzord in Warrior Mode only made him and Scorpina fall down.
  • Agility: Whilst fighting the Dino Megazord for the first time, Goldar was able to quickly dodge around the Megazord and land some blows without being hit.

Abilities

  • Master Hand to Hand Combatant: Goldar was not as good at hand to hand combat as he is at swordsmanship but was still easily able to take down all five Rangers (although Tommy was almost always able to overpower him).
  • Master Swordsman: Goldar was better than any other villain at combat with a weapon, perhaps even more than Rita but excluding Zedd. Goldar constantly failed to beat Tommy in his Green Ranger form whilst Zedd could overpower him in his more powerful White Ranger form without breaking a sweat.
  • Expert Zord Pilot: Goldar was able to expertly pilot both Cyclopsis and Serpentera with no assistance and overwhelm the Zords easily in both as well as piloting the Dragonzord to victory in the first part of the two-part episode "Return of an Old Friend."
  • Chemistry Set-Up-Goldar was able to set-up a lot of chemistry equipment and similar equipment for Zedd’s bicentennial Sleep of Oblivion as seen in the first part of “The Wedding”, where he was given comments by Zedd.
  • Wedding Planning-Goldar was able to expertly plan out Rita and Zedd’s wedding (much to his own outrage).

Arsenal

  • Sword: Goldar wielded a large golden sword to aid him in combat. It was sharp enough to take down Rangers with one hit each and cleave straight through the middle of a building.
    • Flame Wave: Goldar could engulf his sword in flames and fling a large horizontal wave of fire at his enemies strong enough to seriously shake up the Dino Megazord in Tank Mode and knock around the Mastodon, Triceratops, and Sabertooth Tiger Dinozords with one hit.
      • Teleportation Casting: The flame waves from Goldar's sword could also teleport his enemies to any location at will as seen in "Missing Green."
    • Fireballs: Goldar could fire blue energy from his sword that turned into orange fireballs capable of causing massive explosions and knocking down all five Rangers with one hit.
      • Homing Fireballs-As seen during the battle with King Sphinx, Goldar could fire fireballs that homed in on his enemies and forced them to dodge towards his allies.
    • Teleportation Stab: When charged up with dark gold energy, and stabbed into the ground, Goldar's sword could unleash a wave of the same golden energy to teleport beings away. He did this to Tommy and some Putties in "The Green Candle."
    • Energy Chain Generation: Goldar could fire golden energy from his sword's tip that formed energy chains strong enough to restrain Tommy. He only did this in "The Green Candle."
    • Flamethrower: Goldar was able to release a stream of flame from the tip of his sword to disintegrate a clumsy Putty in "Mighty Morphin Mutants".
    • Lightning Channelling: Goldar could channel blue lightning into his sword and fire them from the tip. Instead of being used as an attack, it was instead used to power up the Crystal of Nightmares.
    • Fire Channelling: Goldar was able to channel fire into his sword at will for a variety of attacks and special moves.
      • Fire Ropes: By channeling fire into his sword, Goldar could release long yellow streamer-like ropes from the tip of his sword. He only did this in the episode "The Ninja Encounter Part I" to kidnap the future Power Rangers.
    • Lightning Strike: When combined with Scorpina's fin blade, Goldar could fire forth blue lightning from his sword with enough power to take down all five Rangers.
    • Teleportation Beams-Goldar could fire golden-white energy beams from his sword to teleport beings to any location he chose as seen with Kimberly and Shawna.
  • Cyclopsis: Goldar's personal War Zord that he had for at least 10,000 years.
  • Dragon Dagger: Temporarily stolen from the Command Center by Billy (who was under the Dramole's spell) who gave it to Goldar who used it to use the Dragonzord against the Rangers. It was later retrieved by Tommy along with the Power Coins.
  • Z-Staff: Goldar borrowed Lord Zedd's staff to brainwash Tommy to get the Sword of Light in the episode "The Green Dream."
  • Serpentera: Goldar was the pilot for Serpentera whereas Zedd just sat back and watched.
  • Mirror of Regret: A mirror that showed someone their greatest failures which was used to try and destroy Adam's self-confidence. It was only used in the episode of the same name.
  • Saba-Goldar stole Saba from Tommy in the episode "Best Man For The Job" for Rita to use to summon the White Tigerzord.
    • Lightning Blasts: Goldar forced Saba to fire white lightning beams from his eyes strong enough to take down all six Rangers with one hit.

Powers and Abilities

  • Strength: Goldar was much stronger as Goldar Maximus as shown when he sent Koda flying with a single sword slash which de-morphed him and knocked him unconscious.
  • Shockwave Kick: Goldar could unleash a yellow shockwave with his kick as shown when he attacked Sledge upon his resurrection.

Arsenal

  • Broadsword: In his ultimate form, Goldar wielded a massive golden broadsword.
    • Lightning Bolt: Goldar could engulf his sword in blue lightning to fire a devastating lightning bolt of the same color from it which was strong enough to destroy Sledge with one hit.
    • Energy Empowerment: Goldar could charge up his broadsword with blue energy to strike at full force. It was only used to slice open a geode for Scrozzle.
    • Energy Wave: Goldar Maximus could fire a gigantic blue energy wave from his broadsword which was his all-time most powerful attack since it was strong enough to de-morph Zoey, Nate, Steel and Ravi with one hit as well as knock all of them out cold.

Behind the Scenes

General

  • A major issue that Saban had to work around in Season 2 was the White Ranger himself since the actual screen-time of his counterpart in Dairanger was very, very limited. Multiple episodes at a time didn't feature him at all even after he had been introduced. In total, he only appeared in twenty eight and most that did feature Kibaranger only had him as his true Japanese boy form with the rest featuring him for about two minutes each if that.
    • In fact, even when he did appear, he rarely joined the other five for fights and usually just geeked out from the sidelines and sometimes would only show up in the Zord fight out of the blue and that's if he did at all.
      • This is why Goldar randomly showed up to fight Tommy so often in Season 2 even if he had nothing to do with the rest of the episode such as in "Rangers Back in Time-part II" and "Forever Friends."

Portrayal

  • Goldar never spoke in the original pilot, only communicating in grunts and growls although this was changed in the series proper.
    • Ironically, this was very similar to how things went in Zyuranger since it took until the equivalent episode to "Jason's Battle" for Bandora to allow Grifforizer to speak. Prior to that, he spoke only in feral growls and snarls.
  • In the series proper, he was voiced by Kerrigan Mahan.
    • According to Mahan, there was never a formal audition process for Goldar. Rather, he landed the role purely by chance. He was known by Saban as a skilled dubber, having worked with the company before on several other projects, and so he was one of the "go-to" voice actors for dubbing projects. With this in mind, he was asked to come in one day to work on Power Rangers, and when he was in the recording studio, dubbing director Tony Oliver simply said, "OK, Kerrigan, I think there's a gold guy that I want you to play, a guy with wings."
    • The tone of Goldar's voice varies considerably throughout the first season of the series. This initially fuelled speculation that Mahan had not been the original voice of the character.
      • In reality, Mahan had voiced the character with a gravelly, higher-pitched tone in the earliest episodes, however the resulting vocal strain forced him to experiment with other versions of the voice until he eventually settled on Goldar's iconic, low guttural inflection.
      • Sound bites of Mahan's earlier performance were still used in later episodes, particularly in scenes where Goldar would fight or grow to giant size which usually consisted of growls.
  • The suit actors who played Goldar in Super Sentai footage from Zyuranger were Takashi Sakamoto (坂本隆 Sakamoto Takashi) for non-action scenes and Kazutoshi Yokoyama (横山 一敏 Yokoyama Kazutoshi) for battle sequences. In original footage, the suit actor was Danny Wayne Stallcup for the first two seasons, while during season three, he was portrayed by David Wald and several other actors.
  • In his revival in Beast Morphers, Goldar was voiced by Adrian Smith and portrayed him with a voice not too dissimilar to Redker, a role from several years before.

Design

Goldar as seen in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Live.

From the first episode until Lions & Blizzards, the Goldar costume looked like Grifforzer, his Zyuranger counterpart. This caused his snout to rise whenever he was talking. Starting with "Crystal of Nightmares", the head was modified so that the jaw (or just the bottom teeth) would move down. This new costume was used for all footage filmed in the U.S. onward, but the rising snout Goldar would appear in recycled footage in the second season.

In addition to the changes in his facial appearance, the revised costume notably has a pair of extended wings. Although Goldar is shown with the ability to fly in early episodes, the wings on the original costume are folded behind him and later disappear for reasons not explained within the season. In "The Mutiny-part I" when Goldar immediately defects from Rita upon Lord Zedd's arrival, the evil emperor states, "Your spineless, snivelling attitude leads me to believe you will serve me well. For that, I shall restore to you what was once taken away." Zedd then uses his staff to re-grant Goldar his wings. Although he was seen with his wings when in Rita's palace, they disappeared whenever he grew and would continue to appear and disappear throughout the season with no explanation.

Goldar's face had several changes in season 2 so there were possibly several masks with different appearance at times A mask had a very smooth face with large teeth where it filled the entire osico with which he moved when he spoke, making it easier and more credible when he was seen speaking, with smaller eyes and a less intense blue. Another mask with the face slightly with the skin similar to the original mask, but much wider, with large fangs but with smaller middle teeth leaving a large space in the middle, in addition to having the larger osicus in the width leaving a space large without teeth and with eyes larger than those of the first mask, but smaller than those of the original mask, also that the helmet seemed to be wider and did not seem to fit

And in season 3 and in Zeo the mask underwent a certain change since although the first mask was used for some scenes, mostly those of fights and some from the archive of season 2, it had a new face or possibly it was the first mask only that something damaged, possibly some damage in post-production or due to its excessive use, with the large teeth that moved when they spoke although in a less recurrent way and showing even more the gums when moving the mouth, the somewhat loose helmet and possibly the mechanics of the Eyes was also damaged as it left Goldar with crooked eyes, with the left eye half open and the right half closed.
