History

Pumpkin Rapper is planted off-screen by Squatt and Baboo in a pumpkin patch, hidden amongst many other pumpkins in Angel Grove Park. This is done because of foresight from Goldar, when he realizes that Halloween is approaching and is approved by Rita once she realizes that Kimberly has gone on a game show. It takes a full week for the monster to grow into a gigantic pumpkin at which time Kimberly is on the game show. This causes all of the pumpkins to start visibly moving and allows Zordon to detect him. The Power Rangers deploy to the pumpkin patch only to have their heads trapped in pumpkins that are completely airtight. However, Kimberly arrives and destroys the pumpkins with her Blade Blaster. The remaining pumpkins in the field then start flying before forming into Putties with pumpkin heads.

After defeating the horde, Billy spies the gigantic pumpkin that is Pumpkin Rapper and the Rangers wake him up with a rap. Enraged, Pumpkin Rapper calls their raps terrible and summons another horde of pumpkin-headed Putties to attack the Rangers. Once they are defeated, Pumpkin Rapper attacks the Rangers by whipping their Blade Blasters from their hands with a vine and wrapping them up in a flowery vine, electrocuting them in the process. However, Tommy appears and cuts the vine with his Dragon Dagger before charging. Pumpkin Rapper is then restraining by Tommy long enough for the other Rangers to form the Power Blaster, allowing the Rangers to finish him off with a single devastating blast.

Pumpkin Rapper is resurrected as one of the monsters in Doomstone's Haunted Forest to help him destroy Tommy and make the Power Rangers much weaker. After Goldar kidnaps Tommy, Doomstone reveals Pumpkin Rapper and Robogoat, who grab his arms when he tries to morph and they snatch away his Power Morpher. Tommy kicks both monsters down as well as Doomstone before running whilst the trio pursue him. Whilst the resurrected monsters are largely unsuccessful, Pumpkin Rapper remains off-screen and raps about the defeats. Shortly after that, the remaining three Rangers arrive at which point Zedd throws a Growth Bomb, enlarging Pumpkin Rapper. However, this also releases the Power Rangers as well, who summon the Thunder Megazord and the White Tigerzord. Annoyed by how the party was a flop, Pumpkin Rapper charges but is blasted back by a barrage of White Tiger Thunderbolts although he quickly recovers. Angered further, he summons pumpkin bombs and tosses them hard enough to wipe out the Thunder Megazord, but the White Tigerzord is not hit and punches him to the ground. Being given relief from combat, the Thunder Megazord pulls out and ignites the Thunder Saber which intimidates Pumpkin Rapper right before he is destroyed by it.
