Punch-A-Bunch is a robot boxing monster who turned Adam into a trophy. He serves as the main villain of the episode "Challenges".
This boxing robot was an idea given by Prince Sprocket by Mondo when boxing against Cogs in the Skybase.
He accompanies Sprocket and an army of Cogs in a construction site and faces off against the Green Ranger, he morphed and he took on the monster in a hand-to-hand combat. The Green Ranger was able to make a beat down on the monster and take him down with ease, but Sprocket was able to capture the Green Ranger when he calls Zordon for help.
When the Pink, Yellow and Blue Rangers came in and battled the army of Cogs, Prince Sprocket had Klank & Orbus enlarge Punch-A-Bunch, the Red Ranger came into battle (having been off on his soul quest) and summons the Red Battlezord to take on Punch-A-Bunch. The Red Ranger had the upper hand, but Punch-A-Bunch used the freeze breath to clog up the Red Ranger's view, allowing the monster to make clean strikes, and taking out the Red Battlezord with ease using a massive jump punch, but destroying his right glove in the process.
Sprocket then sends the monster for a break, saying that he will deal with the Rangers himself, back at the hide-out, Prince Sprocket upgraded Punch-A-Bunch by given him spiky fists, he later returned and the Red Ranger came in the Red Battlezord to have a rematch, there was a boxing-style battle that took place, the Red Ranger had the upper hand, but Punch-A-Bunch use the freezing breath attach to clog up the Red Ranger's cockpit again, allowing the monster to get clean hits, not only that, but the Machine Empire had cheated, as the boxing rings have electricity, with all of this, Punch-A-Bunch was making a complete beat down on the Red Battlezord.
Soon the boxing ring was destroyed by the Rangers in the Command Center and the fight was fair again. Eventually, the Red Battlezord was able to make a complete beat down on Punch-A-Bunch and was able to destroy the monster by spinning through the air and drilling through Punch-A-Bunch, making him explode into golden particles.
Punch-A-Bunch is later seen as an audience member in Prince Gasket's Machine Arena.
Punch-A-Bunch acts very much like a boxer, always wanting to chalange someone into a boxing match.

- Punch-A-Bunch's name comes from the term "Punch a bunch", which makes sense since he is a boxer-them monster.
- The reason that Punch-A-Bunch knew that attack that took out the Red Battlezord was because it was one that Shouhei Yokkaichi/Oh Green was taught in that very episode and he stole the idea.
- Punch-A-Bunch is the only monster in Zeo that lacks an projectile or energy attack.
- Whilst he does have that mist spray, it does no damage and instead just blinds his enemies.
- Back in early 2003, shortly after the series changed hands from Saban Entertainment to Disney, some of the monster costumes, including Punch-A-Bunch, were auctioned off by ABC Auctions. It sold for $415.
