"Oooh, you Rangers make me mad, waking me up with a rap that bad!"
―Pumpkin Rapper[src]

Character History

A pumpkin monster planted by Squatt and Baboo. Resembling an orange humanoid with an upside-down jack-o-lantern on its head, the Pumpkin Rapper spoke mainly in rhymes and rap tone (though one line was spoken in non-rhyming tone). He was woken up by the Rangers' bad rap and attacks them with pumpkin-headed Putty Patrollers. Although it proved a tough adversary with vine tentacles and pumpkin bombs, it was soon taken out by the Power Blaster.Trick or Treat

Because the Pumpkin Rapper happened to be one of Lord Zedd's favorite monsters, it was resurrected by Zedd as part of a Halloween monster assault in Zedd's Haunted Forest. While the army (consisting of Robogoat, Primator, Rhinoblaster, Invenusable Flytrap, and Snizzard with Doomstone as the leader) was largely unsuccessful, Zedd threw a growing bomb which Pumpkin Rapper used to grow himself only after leaving the dimension. It battled the White Tigerzord until succumbing to the Thunder Megazord's saber.Zedd's Monster Mash

Pumpkin Rapper appeared again helping Zedd and Rita conquer a planet in the Vica Galaxy. He was destroyed by Zordon's energy wave.Countdown to Destruction
