Lord Zedd created Photomare from a Polaroid camera. Photomare was able to trap the Rangers (who had been transformed into kids) inside a photograph. Photomare and Goldar had cornered Bulk and Skull (who had also been transformed into kids) to retrieve the photograph of the six kids. Alpha 5 was able to temporarily freeze Goldar and Photomare in their tracks. When the Rangers returned to their correct ages, Photomare grew giant, at which point they summoned the Red Dragon Thunderzord. Photomare quickly created a copy of the zord, called Copyzord. After the Thunderzords combined to form the Thunder Megazord, they were able to easily destroy both Photomare and the Copyzord in one quick swipe of the Thunder Saber.
When Alpha freezes Photomare, he refers to the monster as "sister". Considering that Photomare has a feminine appearance yet a masculine voice, this could lead viewers to be confused about the gender of this monster.
