Personality

Halfbake is brave as he dared to battle the Rangers though he was not a strong outlaw. However, (Though this probably due to his powers making up for lack of strength) he is childish and takes decisions without thinking about the consequences. Unlike other outlaws, Halfbake wouldn't attack civilians to gain the attention of the Rangers, but instead politely asked them to help him find the Rangers, even offering to bake cookies for them if they helped. Despite his non threatening demeanor, the civilians were still frightened of him.

Notes

  • He is named after the phrase "half-baked", which means poorly thought-out or ill-conceived.
  • Of the monsters in the Power Rangers Dino Charge series, Half-bake is the least evil monster, as he is really just a chef-type character that wants to be the one to defeat the Rangers to impress Heckyl.
  • Half-bake's final lines "My goose is cooked!" is very similar to the line used by Screamer, a harpy-monster from Power Rangers Mystic Force.
  • Most of Half-bakes abilities are cooked-themed.
  • The symbol on Halfbake's forehead originated from Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger: 100 YEARS AFTER, in which his Sentai counterpart was a member of a group of monsters called Attacking Group of the Four Seasons. Each monster was season themed and donned the kanji symbol that represented their respective season. Since the episode he appears in uses Ranger footage from Brave 33, the kanji alternates between being present and absent on him.
  • He has been seen several times in the series, as a background monster, in Sledge's ship, prior to being used as a chef and MOTD.
