"How about going for a little spin, bud?"

"No more Mr. Nice Toad!"
―The Terror Toad after the Rangers he swallowed were released and his final words before his destruction[src]

Terror Toad was a toad monster who served as the main antagonist of the episode "Power Ranger Punks."

History

Finster created Terror Toad for Rita, citing that they had had great success with him on Sorcery 7. Rita then sent Terror Toad down to Earth to attack Angel Grove. In response, the Power Rangers were sent by Zordon to deal with the threat.

With Billy and Kimberly indisposed due to Baboo's punk potion, only Jason, Zack, and Trini were left to fight him. The Rangers' attacks proved ineffective against the toad and he was easily able to fend them off. During the battle, he knocked Trini to the ground, after which he fired his energy tongue at her transforming her into a yellow energy sphere. Terror Toad swallowed her and a picture of the Yellow Ranger's helmet appeared on his belly. Jason and Zack continued to fight the toad, but were overwhelmed and soon Zack was also transformed into an energy sphere and swallowed, leaving Jason to fight him alone.

Once Billy and Kimberly were cured of the punk potion, they were instructed by Zordon to cut off Terror Toad's horn and attack it's weak spot right below its neck. The two then joined Jason in the battle against the toad. Billy and Kimberly managed to cut off Terror Toad's horn, making him furious. In retaliation, Terror Toad grabbed Jason with his tongue, pulled him into his mouth, and swallowed him whole. As Terror Toad swallowed Jason, Kimberly noticed strange markings on his neck that seemed to indicate his weak spot. Billy then tried to attack him, leaping into the air, but Terror Toad caught him in mid-air, pulled him into his mouth, and swallowed him as well.

Left alone to fight the toad, Kimberly prepared to fire an arrow from her Power Bow, but was knocked down by Baboo. Terror Toad joined Baboo and the two began to approach her, but Kimberly immediately fired three arrows into the toad's neck. Terror Toad fell to the ground and spit up all four of the swallowed Rangers. The Rangers then launched a final assault, each landing a devastating attack against the toad. Kimberly then delivered the final blow by firing an arrow into his mouth and he was destroyed. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Power Ranger Punks

Personality

Terror Toad was a ravenous and cruel creature, taking great delight in his task of battling and devouring the Power Rangers and would continuously mock and taunt the Rangers as he swallowed them one by one. He was also prone to anger, as seen when he devoured Jason out of spite after Billy and Kimberly cut off his horn.

Powers and Abilities

  • Devour: Terror Toad has an incredible appetite and is capable of devouring his opponents. He has a large stomach that can contain at least four of the Power Rangers.
  • Strength: Terror Toad was able to defeat three Rangers all at once with ease and later Billy and Kimberly by themselves even more easily.
  • Extreme Durability: He has incredible defense, easily shrugging off most of the Power Rangers' attacks, including a direct hit from Jason's Power Sword and Zack's Power Axe.
  • Super Jump: He can leap several feet into the air, as seen when he attacked Billy and Kimberly with a double punch.
  • Energy Shield: Can deflect laser blasts with an energy shield projected from his belly.
  • Power Absorption: His power increases each time he swallows one of the Power Rangers.

Arsenal

  • Claws: Terror Toad has clawed fingers that he can use in battle.
  • Horn: Terror Toad has a round silver horn in the center of his forehead that has several abilities but was cleaved off by Billy and Kimberly's Blade Blasters.
    • Energy Tongue: Terror Toad's main attack where he emits an energy tongue from the horn on his head that turns his foes into energy spheres, which he then eats.
    • Energy Beams: He can fire destructive energy beams from his horn.
  • Long Tongue: Terror Toad has a long tongue, which he uses as a whip, wrapping it around foes to pull them into his mouth to be eaten.

Weaknesses

  • Horn: Terror Toad's horn is one of its few vulnerable and can be severed with a Blade Blaster attack. Once severed, Terror Toad can no longer use his Energy Tongue.
  • Neck: The neck is Terror Toad's primary weak point. Once it is struck, Terror Toad takes severe damage and is forced to release everyone he has devoured.

Behind The Scenes

Portrayal

  • Terror Toad was voiced by Michael Sorich.
    • As a result, Terror Toad sounds a lot like Squatt albeit it with a deeper and less stereotypical "dunce" voice.

Notes

  • Finster implies that Terror Toad is part of a species of monsters since he refers to this monster as "a terror toad."
    • However, this could just mean they have used several in the past and this is just one of them.
      • Then again, it was heavily implied that this Terror Toad was the same one deployed on Sorcery 7.
  • Terror Toad is the first monster shown to have been created by Finster since Eye Guy. Mr. Ticklesneezer was created from a doll (and was also in a dream), the Knasty Knight was summoned through a magical spell and the Pineoctopus was created off-screen by Finster.
  • Terror Toad was the first monster to be destroyed by Kimberly's Power Bow. The only other monster destroyed this way was the Snizzard.
  • Terror Toad would only appear again in flashbacks in two subsequent episodes. The first was in Island of Illusion Part 2, in which Kimberly recalled her battle against the monster. The second was in Crystal of Nightmares, in which Billy had a nightmare about being eaten by Terror Toad.
  • At one point, Terror Toad refers to Trini as "bud", a goof that may have been a result of the fact that, in Zyuranger, the Yellow Ranger is male.
