Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

  • Twin man was voiced by Bryan Cranston.

Notes

  • As the two-part episode "Doomsday" which comes right after the episode that Twin Man made an appearance in "A Bad Reflection on You" was ment to be the series finale, Twin Man (excluding Cyclopsis) would have been the final monster of that season.
  • Twin Man was the fourth of four monsters created for Rita Repulsa who was never grown to giant size to face off against the Power Rangers in a Zord battle. The first one was Bones, the second was Pudgy Pig, and the third was Madame Woe.
  • Twin Man's name is most likely a reference to the Tin Man of The Wizard of Oz.
    • It could also possibly a reference to the slightly similar boss robot from the NES game Mega Man 3, Gemini Man who also wears mirror-based armor and uses illusions to mislead and confuse Mega Man.
