The Terror Toad was a toad monster created by Rita Repulsa's monster maker Finster who serves as the main antagonist of the episode "Power Ranger Punks."

Biography

Finster created the Terror Toad for Rita, citing that they had had great success with him on Sorcery 7. Rita then sent the 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. The 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 the 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 the Terror Toad's horn, making him furious. In retaliation, the Terror Toad grabbed Jason with his tongue, pulled him into his mouth, and swallowed him whole. As the 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 the 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. The Terror Toad joined Baboo and the two began to approach her, but Kimberly immediately fired three arrows into the toad's neck. The 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.

Personality

The Terror Toad was a ravenous and cruel creature, taking great delight in his task of battling and devouring the Power Rangers. He 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

  • Superhuman Strength-The 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.
  • 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-The Terror Toad has no weapons but does have clawed fingers that he can use in battle.
  • Horn-The Terror Toad has a round silver horn in the centre of his forehead that has several abilities but was cleaved off by Billy and Kimberly's Blade Blasters.
    • Energy Tongue: The 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: The 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.

Behind The Scenes

Portrayal

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

Notes

  • The Terror Toad was the third monster to have never been enlarged by Rita's magic wand. The first monster was Bones and the second was the Pudgy Pig.
  • Finster constantly implies that the 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 so who knows?
  • The 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.
  • The Terror Toad was the first monster to be destroyed by Kimberly's Power Bow. The only other monster destroyed this way was the Snizzard.
  • The 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 the Terror Toad.
  • In one scene, the Terror Toad refers to Trini as "bud", a goof that may have been a result of the fact that, in the original Zyuranger series, the Yellow Ranger is male.
    • Still doesn't make sense for it to happen here though.
  • It is unknown if he had any last words before his death.
