Guitardo is a guitar-playing cicada monster with a hypnotic sound created by Lord Zedd from a cicada crawling next to Kimberly's guitar. He originally wanted a guitar monster, but chose the cicada. Goldar had said that Zedd could not create monsters from inanimate objects, even though he already had, and would in the future. The guitar Guitardo uses is taken from Kimberly and warped for Zedd's powerful monster to use. Guitardo plays rock tunes and hypnotizes its victim's bodies, often using weight changing powers. Guitardo manages to capture Zack, Trini, Billy, and Jason. Kimberly is saved in the nick of time by Tommy, but Tommy takes a great risk by taking on Guitardo with extremely low power. He manages to take the monster down, but Guitardo's musical mayhem prevails when he starts releasing his tunes yet again. Tommy temporarily retaliates with his Dragon Dagger, learning that the key to winning is to fight music with music. Once Kimberly shows up, she helps Tommy and they combine Kimberly's power bow (now strung like a harp) with Tommy's Dragon Dagger. Kimberly blasts the Dragon Dagger straight into Guitardo, obliterating him.
After the defeat of Guitardo, Kimberly's guitar is brought back to its normal state (and because of the fate of all monsters created by Zedd, it is presumed the cicada was returned to normal as well).
Guitardo was one of the many monsters that aided Divatox in conquering Gratha, but was destroyed by Zordon's energy wave. He was later seen bidding on the pink Quasar Saber on Onyx, having been mysteriously revived from the assault.
- Guitardo comes from what is commonly referred to as "Zyu2" footage, and was not seen in the original Zyuranger. Guitardo is generally accepted as the only monster without a zord battle, but the unusual manner of exploding leads to speculation of a possible zord battle. His powers demonstrated suggest weight changing abilities more like Numbor from Turbo than actual mind control like Beamcaster.
- Guitardo is one of several monsters that uses music as a weapon to attack the Rangers. Others include Dischordia, Dizchord, and Somnibot among others.
