|This article is about a/an monster in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.|
Rhinoblaster was an American football-playing rhinoceros monster created by Finster, by orders of Rita Repulsa. He could emit white mists from his nostrils and place his enemies in a multidimensional vortex. He wields a curved sword. He could project energy bolts from his sword and horn. He serves as the main antagonist of the episode "Football Season".
Rhinoblaster was created by Finster. Rita planned to destroy the Rangers using football. Zordon told Rangers, that monster is cunning and fast. He had put the Putty Patrol in football jerseys to battle the Power Rangers, then used his white mist to trap the Rangers in the vortex. He was then challenged by Tommy and the Dragonzord. As Rhinoblaster emitted his mist to trap Tommy, Tommy threw the Dragon Dagger into the source of the mist, as Jason caught it, allowing the other Rangers to escape the vortex. But still, the Rhinoblaster overwhelmed the Dragonzord and the Megazord until they combined into the Mega-Dragonzord, and launched its Z-sphere blast that destroyed Rhinoblaster.
Rhinoblaster was among the monsters recreated by Finster to ambush the Rangers at the Spectre Theatre. Rhinoblaster and Peckster were later selected to guard the Rangers in the Spectre Theater as Rita Repulsa and Lord Zedd got married. They failed miserably, as he and Peckster were ensnared in a net by the Rangers, leading to the Rangers' eventual escape. Peckster and Rhinoblaster in the Spectre Theater were not at all like their original menacing selves, but instead more like a monster version of Bulk and Skull.
Rhinoblaster is a ruthless and cold monster that will do anything in his power to destroy the Rangers, tho despite this, he's quick on his feet and very clever. But he is also highly funny and enjoys playing football.
