- "Ya ha ha ha ha ha ha! I'm the big fish in this pond now, Power Rangers!"

- ―The Jellyfish Warrior's final words before his destruction.[src]
The Jellyfish Warrior was a jellyfish monster who served as the main antagonist of the episode "Reign of the Jellyfish".
Rita had Finster create the Jellyfish Warrior to destroy the Power Rangers but, presumably due to his power level, needed time to create. In the meantime, Rita wanted to get her photograph in a time capsule the Rangers were making to be remembered in 100 years time. Once Squatt, Baboo, and the Putty Patrol had failed to grab the time capsule Rita had sent the Jellyfish Warrior to Earth in retaliation.
The Jellyfish Warrior appeared in the Park and menaced a large group of people. The Rangers soon appeared to confront him and jumped atop his head with their Blade Blasters only for him to throw them all off. The Jellyfish Warrior proved to be a very powerful opponent for the Rangers who even made the Rangers retreat by hitting them with a devastating spray of acid. When they returned from the Command Center, now shielded against his stinger blasts by a special spray Alpha designed, he blasted them to no avail so summoned a squad of Putties. Once they were dealt with, he fired a spray of acidic mist which they dodged but destroyed a bench. Seeing this, Kimberly and Trini teamed up and threw a Power Dagger and launched a Power Bow arrow. However, the monster withdrew a umbrella shield which the weapons bounced off and blasted Billy and Zack down. Jason then tried to take him on with his Power Sword but the monster teleported all over the place and kicked him down. Then, as the team regrouped, he teleported the Rangers to another dimension. In his dimension, Jellyfish Warrior was intangible due to going out of sync with time and the Rangers couldn't harm him. Luckily, Billy told that Zack that a shot from his Power Axe in cannon mode will return them to Earth. They did it and returned. The direct hit meant that the Jellyfish Warrior was weakened so Zack took him down with a single slash of his Power Axe.
However, he remained alive and recovered so Jason called for the Power Blaster. However, before they could form it, Rita enlarged the Jellyfish. The Rangers then summoned their Dinozords and fired the Triceratops and Sabertooth Tiger's tail blasts but the Jellyfish Warrior deflected the blasts with his umbrella. Unfortunately for him, Zack and the Mastodon blasted him with icy breath, making him drop his umbrella and fall as they formed the Megazord. The monster very easily overwhelmed the Rangers by teleporting around faster than they could react and bashing them before he charged to finish them off. In desperation, Jason summoned the Power Sword and stabbed him in the chest before throwing him to the ground. With the monster's tentacles injured and the Jellyfish Warrior crippled as a result, they destroyed him with an energized slash.
Four years later, the Jellyfish Warrior was also among the monsters who aided in Rita and Lord Zedd's attack on the Vica Galaxy and was destroyed by Zordon's Energy Wave. It can be presumed that Finster recreated him.
The Jellyfish Warrior is a cunning, intelligent, strong and resourceful beast. He was a formidable opponent for the Power Rangers, and they had to work hard to defeat him. However, he is also genuinely loyal to Rita, and later Zedd.
Powers and abilities
- Strength: The Jellyfish Warrior easily threw all five Rangers off of him and single slaps sent the Rangers to the ground. When giant, he knocked the Megazord back with a single kick and kept a grip on the Power Sword.
- Toxic Spray: The Jellyfish Warrior can fire white smoke from the palm of his right hand capable of destroying a park bench and could have killed the Rangers had they been protected by Alpha's spray.
- Sting Blasts: The Jellyfish Warrior's signature attack where he fires red lasers from behind his left fore and middle fingers. This severely injured the Rangers and forced them to retreat.
- Teleportation: The Jellyfish Warrior can teleport to any location at will.
- Instant Teleportation: The Jellyfish Warrior's teleportation ability also allows him to instantly teleport around the battlefield quickly enough to avoid strikes from the Megazord.
- Intangibility: Whilst inside of his devilish dimension, the Jellyfish Warrior was completely intangible.
- Tentacles:The Jellyfish Warrior has long white tentacles in place of fingers on his left hand that he can use to whip his enemies as if they were a knight's flail.
- Umbrella Shield: The Jellyfish Warrior's only weapon is an pink umbrella with pink veins running through it that can deflect even the Sabretooth Tiger and Triceratops' energy blasts.
- Dimensions Travelling: The Jellyfish Warrior can teleport himself and the Rangers into another dimension by twirling his umbrella.
- High Power Energy Blasts: Hitting the Jellyfish Warrior with a powerful energy burst (such as Zack's Power Axe in Cannon Mode) will force him and his victims out of his home dimension and vulnerable to further attack.
- Cold: The Jellyfish Warrior is extremely vulnerable to the cold (like real jellyfish) to the point that he both lost his umbrella and was sent flying by the Mastodon's ice breath.
- Tentacles: Although the Jellyfish Warrior's tentacles are very strong as swinging weapons, they are also very fragile and an injury can cause the monster crippling pain which makes him easy to finish off.
Behind The Scenes
- The Jellyfish Warrior is voiced by Richard Cansino who gives him a Peter Lorre-esque voice.
- The Jellyfish comes from what is commonly referred to as "Zyu2" footage, and was not seen in the original Zyuranger.
- Strangely, although the concept art at the top of the page shows him with umbrella like mushrooms on his shoulders, the final suit design lacks them.
- Although the reason for this significant change is unclear, many assume it is because the original design for the suit looks somewhat silly.
- The Jellyfish Warrior is the second monster to have a Peter Lorre like voice, the first being Fang.
- Jellyfish Warrior is the first monster in the franchise to say a line immediately after growing. This would become a staple in later seasons starting with the Disney era.
- Jellyfish Warrior is the second monster to be able to instantly teleport around in order to dodge attacks. The first was Madame Woe and the third will be Flashhead from Power Rangers Turbo three years later.
