Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Season 1 & 2 'Zyu 2' Monsters


Here is another exhaustive list, now why do this? Because seeing how Saban Brands is having monsters of PRS in games and toys, I wonder how they choose which ones and which ones will be seen. Some toy and card Pictures thanks to Grnrngr.com
I just covered the Zyuranger monsters, now I decided to cover the other Season 1 monsters by themselves. For those who don't know, 15 of the monsters that appear in season 1 of MMPR were created just for Power Rangers and did not originate from the original Sentai Zyuranger. That's why they are all animals and not mythical creatures like the Minotaur and Gnome. They are nicknamed 'Zyu2' by fans because the first season of MMPR was adapted from Zyuranger, hence calling it 'Zyu 2' (pronounced 'Joo').
