Lord Zedd combines an elephant and an octopus into OCTOPHANTOM, a vain monster who enjoys admiring himself in the mirror — and also has a jar which can drain the Power Rangers of their powers if they are captured. Tommy falls first into the jar, and Zack, Kimberly and Trini also get sucked in. Billy designs a mirror shield to distract the monster. Jason takes on OCTOPHANTOM while Billy frees the others from the jar. Tommy’s powers have been so absorbed he can barely walk. As Jason shows the mirror shield to the monster, the Power Rangers use the Power Blaster. But the monster grows. Jason calls on the Thunderzoid, which is transformed into Mega Thunderzord and obliterates OCTOPHANTOM.
