Oh for the good old days. I use to be somebody around here, Monster Maker extraordinaire, now I'm just old and in the way.
~ Finister lamenting the past

Finster is an alien scientist who worked for both Rita Repulsa and Lord Zedd, but mostly Rita, and one of the four supporting antagonists of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, and a minor antagonist from Zeo and In Space.

He was voiced by the late Robert Axelrod, who also played Wizardmon, Lord Zedd and Lokar.

History

Finster was once the helper of Rita. He created for her monsters and weapons. Later he, along with other her henchmen, was caught by Zordon and put into imprisonment. After 10,000 years he, along with Rita and other her henchmen, was freed. During the first season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Finster was primarily responsible for creating the monsters and putties that battled the Rangers, although this function fell to Lord Zedd after his appearance. Finster did this by sculpting the monsters out of clay and 'cooking' them in a special oven/kiln/machine in his workshop called the . Not only is he skilled at supplying monsters and henchmen for his leaders, he is also shown to be a skilled alchemist and potion maker (similar to Baboo) and inventor, supplying many kinds of potions and gadgets. He's also extremely brilliant and somewhat all-knowing, as he is also able to provide wisdom for Rita and Zedd. it is implied by Goldar that Finster thought using the Crystal was a good idea, while Goldar denies it (calling him an "overgrown rat" in the process). Finster was the one responsible for making the suggestion that Alpha 5

be used in "delivering the message of evil", as Rita Repulsa had called 

Following Lord Zedd's return Finster is suddenly made obsolete. Zedd made his own monsters, though after Pirantishead (Zedd's first monster) was destroyed, Finster commented he could've done better. Finster lamented his current status in the villains, missing the good old days with Rita. When Rita returned from her exile, Finster helped her return to power – restoring her size, making her look younger and creating a love potion to get Zedd to marry her.

In the third season and the  mini-series, Mighty Morphin Alien RangersFinster was back to making monsters. His love potion was also revealed to Goldar. Finster was just as surprised as anyone to find, though, that Zedd actually did love Rita.

At the start of Power Rangers Zeo, Finster joins Zedd and Rita in fleeing the oncoming forces of the Machine Empire. He later returns with his masters (without squattand Baboo) and builds several machines for them. In "Rangers of the two Wolrds, Part 1", Finster makes a new wand for Rita which is absurdly more powerful than the previous one, as it creates a monster that is too strong even for the Zeo Ultrazord.

Finster was still working for Zedd and Rita in Power Rangers: In Space and was present during their battle with the Gold Rangers during the events of Countodown to Destruction. His fate was not revealed, although he was most likely purified by Zordon,s energie wave like Zedd and Rita due to not being truly evil.

In Power Rangers: Soul of the Dragon, it was revealed that just like Divatox, Rita Repulsa and Lord Zedd, Finster was also purified, and later became an ally to the Power Rangers.

Personality

Finster is highly intelligent, wise, resourceful and talented. He was shown to be a good helper of Rita and Zedd. Finster genuinely tried to help Rita and Zedd with their goals, but he made it in a nice and delicate way. Early in season 3, he said that Vampyrus was a nasty monster and not his cup of tea at all. However, he would later change his mind and create monsters just as tough, if not tougher than Rito's Vampirus.

Powers and Abilities

Finster is extremely knowledgeable and can create monsters by sculpting them out of clay, then placing them in a kiln/oven in his lab called the Monster-Matic, which brings them to life and grows them to human size.

Trivia

  • Even though Finster remained on the moon after Lord Zedd showed up, he didn't appear until "Two For One". Coincidentally, he didn't appear in the American footage until "The Mutiny Pt. 1".
  • Finster's place of birth is given as Claydonius.
  • Finster was described as "a smart alien who knew how to stay out of Rita's way, but was at the same time blinded by his devotion to her".
  • His name is the German word for "dark".
  • Finster's design appears to be based on that of a white Scottish terrier.
  • His counterpart in the Super Sentai Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger was Pleprechuan.
