Rita Repulsa is a fictional character from the television series Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. She is based on the Kyōryū Sentai Zyuranger villain Bandora the Witch.
In the 2006 series, Power Rangers: Mystic Force, we see that Rita has become Mystic Mother (still played by Machiko Soga for the Japanese series, Magiranger) and she is the empress of all good magic. In episode 31 of Mystic Force, it is referenced that Mystic Mother was once called Rita in 'the dark days'.
An evil alien witch bent on galactic domination, Rita Repulsa was the first villainess the Power Rangers had to face. Most discernible by her two pointed hair cones, one may also recognize her by her screeching voice, Madonna-like cone bra and obnoxious attitude. While she is sadistic and power hungry, her character would usually become humorous whenever the Power Rangers defeated her; this would end with a catchphrase "I've got such a headache!". As Rita then married Zedd later on in the series, her humorous personality was increased (usually arguing with Zedd or her father, Master Vile). Original name of Bandora in the kyroyu sentai, she was seemed to be more powerful in the japanese version then in the american version
Being a powerful witch, Rita possesses many magical abilities. Normally using her wand in battle, this was also used as the recurring plot device to make her monsters grow to enormous sizes. Apart from this, she has no training in hand-to-hand combat, and would often use her wand as a staff to defend herself.
