Rita Repulsa was the main villain of season 1 of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, and also appeared in season 2, season 3, Zeo, the Turbo movie, and in Space. In season 1, she was played by Machiko Soga using Zyuranger footage of her as Witch Bandora. In season 2 onwards, she was played by Carla Perez. She was always voiced by Barbara Goodson.

At the start of season 2, with the Zyuranger footage exhausted, Rita was replaced by a new villain, Lord Zedd, who banished her. Later in the season, in the episode The Wedding, Rita returned, and put Zedd under a love potion, and married him. In season 3, her brother Rito Revolto and her father Master Vile show up. In the end, the Machine Empire chase them away at the beginning of Zeo. Later in that season, they return from the M-51 Galaxy, and make prepartions to retake the moonbase. In Zeo's finale, Good as Gold, they succeed in destroying the Royal House of Gadgetry. They didn't restart attempts to conquer Earth however. The reason why wasn't explained, but it seems she may have been pregnant, as Rita and Zedd's son Thrax appears in Power Rangers Operation Overdrive. At the end of Power Rangers in Space, she was purified by the Z-wave and appeared to become a regular human. However, in Power Rangers Mystic Force, it was revealed that she has become the Mystic Mother.
