|This article is about a/an monster in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.|
A praying mantis monster created by Finster, Mantis is extremely skilled in Praying Mantis Kung Fu and it is an expert warrior as well, regardless of its affiliation with the treacherous Rita Repulsa. When the Power Rangers attack Mantis, it notifies them that they have no honor and that they do not believe in fighting a fair battle. This especially has a tremendous effect on Trini, who had been training in the art with her sensei, Master Li, and she decides to fight the monster alone in a later encounter in order to maintain her honor. However, once Mantis loses the one-on-one standoff match, Mantis resorts to receiving help from the putties and this leaves Trini asking "What about your honor?" The Mantis gives her the most fitting response applicable. "I have no honor. Like you said, I am one of Rita's monsters." Luckily for Trini, her friends show up in time to help her defeat the Mantis. Trini feels that she did have honor because she gave the Mantis a fair fight even though the Mantis eventually resorted to ganging up on her. Mantis then grew into giant form and was destroyed by the Megazord's Power Sword.
Trumpet Top later summoned an illusionary Mantis among other monsters as part of a plot to wear down the Rangers until Zordon saw through the plot.
- Mantis comes from what is commonly referred to as "Zyu2" footage, and was not seen in the original Zyuranger.
