|This article is about a/an monster in Power Rangers Zeo, the second installment in the Zordon Era.|
Puppetman was a robot created to entertain kids alongside a children's entertainer, that a Cog inserted an evil cog into its back to make it evil. He hypnotized kids to misbehave. The Rangers arrived, but Puppetman used the kids as shields, knowing the Rangers would not harm the children. Puppetman then escaped to a satellite station where he intended to amplify his mind-altering powers on all the kids of Earth. The Rangers took him down with the new Defender Wheel and broke his spell. Puppetman grew, and the Zeo Megazord fought him. Billy discovered that his power came from Puppetman's nose, and told the Rangers that destroying the nose would cause Puppetman to lose his power. The Zeo Megazord's Saber cut off his nose and destroyed Puppetman. Later, fellow robot Alpha 5 rebuilt Puppetman (with a deflector signal to prevent anyone evil from controlling him) for the next Captain Pete show.
