- Goldar (voiced by Kerrigan Mahan): Zedd's main general, and most loyal servant. A "monkey" in golden armor and wings who wields a sword. He proves his loyalty by spending 10,000 years searching for his leader and finding the space sarcophagus within a japanese science lab and freeing Zedd. Develops a rivalry with Red Ranger. Kills Green Ranger after betraying them and dies himself after fighting a Dragon Armored Red Ranger.

Upon his arrival on Earth, he infiltrated a satellite array base, and discovered that the space sarcophagus which Zedd is trapped in has been discovered on the moon and taken to Tokyo. He shows no loyalty to Zedd, but only serves him out of common fear. Develops a rivalry with Zack. He is killed in battle against Zack, who uses Baboo's own ninja tactics against him.
- Putty Patrollers (voiced by Peter MacNicol) : Gray foot soldiers made out of clay. They can also mold their hands into various weapons. The "Z" on their chest is their main power source, but it also causes them to shatter if hit. However, the Z is protected by a near impenetrable glass shell, making them harder to defeat. Their power source allows them to regenerate any limbs they lose in battle. Appearance based on both Rita and Zedd's putties.
- Serpentera: Zedd's personal zord, a giant dragon machine with enough power to destroy a planet. After a fierce battle, the Rangers succeed in destroying Serpentera, with Zedd still inside.
