Trapped in a galactic dumpster on the Moon for ten thousand years. Once Rita Repulsa escapes, she makes the siege of planet Earth her primary goal. She is famous galactic sorceress and master of evil magic. When the wizard Zordon learns of her escape, he creates the team of the Power Rangers to defeat her.

Her first known attack towards the little blue planet was an earthquake, this attack takes place shortly before the Rangers reluctantly receive their Morphers. She also typically employs the use of mindless minions she creates from some unknown clay like substance, which she calls Putties. She also employs the use of Giant Kaiju monsters, which forces the Rangers, to use their Giant Mechs known as Zords.

Rita later uses the green power coin, to control the Green Power Ranger. Her controlling the Green Ranger still holds up today as one of the Ranger's most harrowing and deadly threats. Although, the Rangers manage to break Rita's hold on the Green Ranger and allow him to become a hero, Rita uses the Green Candle that once it burns out will return all of the Green Rangers power to her, thus limiting the appearances of the Green Ranger It was not long after this she began to be able to use Super Putties.

Later she kidnaps the Rangers parents, and puts up a ransom for the teams power coins. She also during this time takes control of the Blue Power Ranger and forces him to steal the Dragon Dagger originally introduced by the Green Ranger and given to the Red Ranger. Rita sends Goldar to make the exchange. the Rangers all give over there coins to Goldar and Rita, who do not stick to their end of the bargain. However the Red Ranger reveals that he still has the Dragon Coin which is the source of the Green Rangers power, they use this to summon him, and then fuse his powers with Zordan's in order to defeat Rita and retrieve their coins and Parents. He succeeds in retrieving not only the power coins and parents but he also gets the Dragon Dagger back.
