"Ready to be star stuck? Get it?"
―Staroid attacking the Zords.[src]

"Saber. Schmaber. Whatever."
―Staroid's final words before his destruction.[src]

Staroid is a star-themed robot and is the first monster to be summoned by King Mondo. He serves as the primary villain of the episode "The Shooting Star".

History

Started was summoned by King Mondo after the Cogs were outmatched by the Zeo Rangers and failed to locate the Zeo Zord Hangar. Staroid was chosen by Mondo to lead the initial invasion of the Machine Empire on Earth with an army of Quadrafighters due to his battle prowess. Mondo ordered Staroid to destroy the Zeo Rangers. Staroid attacked Angel Grove and encountered the Power Rangers. At first the Rangers attacked him with their Zords, but they were quickly overwhelmed, because Staroid used his energy boomerang against them and fired at the Rangers from his arms. Meanwhile Tommy's Zeo Zord V was blasted by Quadrafighters. Then Staroid turned into the enormous star ball and attacked the Rangers and then rose in the sky, radiating huge amount of heat. In this form he started landing on the Zords, causing them damage. However then the Rangers used the Zeo Crystal and formed the Zeo Megazord. After the first strike of Megazord's sword, Staroid shattered into pieces. However then a giant energy ball started gathering pieces of Staroid. However, the Megazord slashed the ball with its final strike, finally crushing Staroid. Tvicon.png TV STORY-The Shooting Star
