This article is about a/an monster in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.

The Wheel of Misfortune was originally an antique spinning wheel that belonged to Kimberly's grandmother. It was put under a spell by Rita and turned into the Wheel of Misfortune. 


Rita created this monster from the spinning wheel of Kimberly's grandmother. This monster was sent to battle with the Zords after Tommy, who had been tied to a tree as part of Rita Repulsa's latest scheme at the time, broke free and joined the other five rangers. It managed to put up a solid fight, even giving the Megazord trouble. It was ultimately destroyed when the Megazord combined with the Dragonzord and Titanus to form the Ultrazord in a last-ditch effort for victory, before being restores back into a regular spinning wheel.


Unlike the other monsters, Wheel of Misfortune doesn't have personality.
