Half-Bake is an autumn-themed monster who worked as a chef for Heckyl untill the day he escaped and tried to create trouble for the Rangers in the episode "Besties 4Eva!".

History

Half-bake is first seen in the many cells around Sledge's ship, frightened at the thought of Heckyl's release. Wishing For a Hero

Half-bake was seen when Heckyl was releasing the prisoners. When Evil Stirs.

He was then seen when all the other monsters forgot the location of Rangers base. Forgive and Forget

After Heckyl took over, where he was employed as a chef. One day, Half-bake was serving Heckyl some cookies which he throws and says that there's no cinnamon. Halfbake replies that he sent a Spikeball to bring some cinnamon but he was destroyed by the Rangers. He asks Heckyl's permission to go and slay the Rangers, which makes him and Wrench laugh. Heckyl asks his plan to which he replies that he'll just go and destroy them, making everyone laugh again. When Heckyl is sleeping, he tries to sneak out but is caught by Wrench. He electrocutes him by breaking a cable cord, causing short circuit in his system. He manages to escape and then seeks the Rangers. A short-circuited Wrench eventually arrives and although angry with him at first for electrocuting him with a cable cord, helps him in battling the Rangers. Halfbake hears the rumor that Erin is the Pink Ranger and abducts her. The Rangers find his underground lair and confront him. While Erin is freed by Shelby, Halfbake is destroyed by the Victory Maximum Final Strike and when he gets enlarge by the Magnabeam, gets destroyed by the Ptera Charge Megazord Para Formation's Ptera Lighting Blitz. Besties 4Eva!

Personality

Halfbake is brave as he dared to battle the Rangers though he was not a strong outlaw. However, (Though this probably due to his powers making up for lack of strength) he is childish and takes decisions without thinking about the consequences. Unlike other outlaws, Halfbake wouldn't attack civilians to gain the attention of the Rangers, but instead politely asked them to help him find the Rangers, even offering to bake cookies for them if they helped. Despite his non-threatening demeanor, the civilians were still frightened of him.

Powers and abilities

  • Talented Baker: True to his name, Half-Bake is a skilled baker.
  • Extraordinary Jumper: Half-Bake can jump to incredible heights.
  • Beastly Brrr Bomb: When enlarged, Half-bake gets an upgrade to his brrr bomb. Instead of picking one off of his belt, he he can charge up brown energy between his hands and generate a massive brown energy sphere in front of him, which he will then launch at the enemy. How much damage this can do is unclear since the Para Zord Blast obliterated it before it could make contact.

Arsenal

  • Dough Hammer: When in combat, Half-bake can battle his enemies with a hammer.
    • Destruction Dough: By slamming his hammer in a stump-shaped container filled with dough and throwing a large dough ball at the enemy, the dough will split into smaller multi dough, which will then circle around and attack multiple enemies.
    • Brrr Bomb: Half-Bake has brrr-like bombs around his waist that he can pick off, and after the bomb is light orange, Half-bake can throw them at the enemy. He can also throw them in groups.

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

  • Half-Bake is voiced by Kevin Keys who later voiced Conductro and they share a similar sounding voice.

Notes

  • Half-bake is the first monster to be defeated by the Victory Maximum Final Strike.
  • He is named after the phrase "half-baked", which means poorly thought-out or ill-conceived which ties into his scheme.
  • Of the monsters in the Power Rangers Dino Charge series, Half-Bake is the least evil monster, as he is really just a chef-type character that wants to be the one to take on the Rangers and impress Heckyl, and politely asks civilians to help search for the Rangers. This could possibly be due to his stupidity.
  • Half-Bake's final words "My goose is cooked!" is identical to the line used by Scream from the Power Rangers Mystic Force episode "Ranger Down."
  • The symbol on Half-bake's forehead originated from Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger: 100 YEARS AFTER, in which his Sentai counterpart was a member of a group of monsters called the Attacking Group of the Four Seasons. Each monster was season themed and donned the kanji symbol that represented their respective season.
    • Since the episode he appears in uses Ranger footage from Brave 33, the kanji alternates between being present and absent on him.
