History

Mondo the Magician's house

Mondo the Magician is a fictional character in a children's book titled "Grumble the Magic Elf", who at some point came to know Rita Repulsa as an old friend. Mondo the Magician puts a spell on Grumble the Elf, turning him into a grouch to sabotage his desire to give presents to children just to spite him. When Kimberly, Tommy, and Rocky are trapped in the book, they meet the enchanted Grumble and go to meet Mondo after a run-in with a Snow Monster. They eventually reach his castle, where Mondo appears for the first time behind his front door. As they head to the ending of the book soon after, Mondo hides behind a tree and observes them before deciding to tail them. After the three Power Rangers are eventually able to escape thanks to Aisha's artistry, Rita frees Mondo from the book in retaliation. Mondo grows giant and attacks Angel Grove as a giant to lure out the Rangers and dispose of them. They summon the Thunder Megazord and White Tigerzord, but Mondo takes out the former by blasting it with energy summoned from the environment. However, Tommy gets involved and punches down Mondo which allows the Thunder Megazord to defeat Mondo with the Thunder Saber. As the Megazord sheathes its Thunder Saber, Mondo the Magician slips to his knees and implodes. Although he survives, Mondo the Magician is sealed back inside the storybook from which he never returns. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Storybook Rangers
