- "Ready to be star strike? Get it?"
- ―Staroid attacking the zords[src]
Started was summoned by King Mondo after the Cogs were outmatched by Zeo Rangers and failed to locate Zeo Megazord Hangar. Started was chosen by Mondo to lead the initial invasion of Machine Empire on Earth with an army of Quadrafighters due to his battle prowess. Mondo ordered Staroid to destroy Zeo Rangers. Staroid attacked Angel Grove and encountered the Power Rangers. At first Rangers attacked him with their Zords, but they were quickly overwhelmed, because Staroid used his energy boomerang against them and fired at 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 Zords, causing them damage. However then rangers used Zeo Crystal and formed Zeo Megazord. After first strike of Megazord's sword, Staroid shattered on pieces. However then a giant energy ball started gathering pieces of Staroid. However Megazord slashed ball with its final strike, finally crushing Staroid.
Staroid has a very goofy personality and loves to joke around with his victims, but when fighting, he does take his job seriously. He was shown as formidable oponent for rangers and heroes had to work hardly to defeat him. He is also loyal to King Mondo.
