|This article is about a/an monster in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.|
Oysterizer is an oyster-theme monster that was awakened by Rita Repulsa, and is the primary antagonist of the season finale episode of the very first season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers "An Oyster Stew" and the final monster to be summoned by Rita herself.
This oyster-like monster was awaken by Rita. He was the guardian of a set of magic pearls called the Pearls of Stillness, he is told to give Zack a set of pearl earnings with that effect to give to his girlfriend Angela which successfully paralysed everyone except for him and Tommy. He was sent to the beach by Zordon to fight the Oysterizer who met him in battle. The monster then fought with Zack but, although he had the upper hand by firing his acid gel at him, Tommy intervened before Oysterizer could make the final strike. Tommy then gave Zack his Dragon Shield, allowing the Black Ranger to defeat the Oyster monster with his Power Axe. However. Oysterizer escaped by front flipping into the ocean although the other Rangers were freed. The Rangers deployed in the Megazord and went to the ocean floor where they successfully destroyed the Pearls of Stillness with it's Cranial Laser. However, the Oysterizer had apparently made himself grow underwater and went all out on the Megazord and easily gains the upper hand. The Rangers realised that the Megazord was not suited for underwater combat and was thus at a disadvantage so contacted Tommy on the beach. The Dragonzord was summoned and was able to knock him back onto dry land with one tail swing. Despite this, Oysterizer gained the upper hand again after summon his weapon, a Dagger and pearl connected by a chain, which he was easily able to make a beat down on the Dragonzord as well as being able to tie it up and disable it with his acid gel. Luckily, the Megazord was able to cut the chain with it's Power Sword and free the Dragonzord from the acid gel. Oysterizer charged at them but the Dragonzord was able to use his missile attack on Oysterizer, knocking him flat before the Megazord finishes him off with it's Power Sword slash.
He later attended Master Vile's End of the World party.
Years later, he was one of many monsters who were attempting to take over the universe for the United Alliance of Evil. He was seen in the army of Rita and Zedd and the army of the Machine Empire. Oysterizer was probably destroyed by the Energy Wave of Zordon.
Oysterizer was also seen on Onyx as one of the monsters trying to bid on the Pink Quasar Saber.
He was seen among the monsters in the Shadow World.

Behind The Scenes
- Oysterizer is voiced by Scott Page-Pagter.
- Oysterizer and Pirantishead have nearly the exact same voice. Ironically, both are Zyu2 monsters based upon things you'd find underwater (an oyster and a piranha).
- Oysterizer comes from what is commonly referred to as "Zyu2" footage, and was not seen in the original Zyuranger. Recently released Zyu2 footage shows that Zach used his scanner built into his helmet to find the Oysterizer while it was in the water.
- Oysterizer was the final monster to be fought by the original Megazord as well as the last one to be destroyed by it.
