|~ Saliguana's final words before his death|
Saliguana (voiced by John C. Hyke and Bob Papenbrook) is a hybrid monster of an iguana and salamander, created by Lord Zedd from Miss Appleby's iguana. He was capable of living in heat and breathing fire. He could also extend his tongue & use it as a rope. He serves as the main antagonist of the episode "Putty on the Brain".
Saliguana was created by Zedd from Miss Appleby's iguana. After being created he terrorized Bulk & Skull. Then Zedd sent him to fight the Rangers. He encountered Zack and Billy. He also summoned Putties. Because of his iguana half, Saliguana was cold-blooded and therefore his powers could be weakened by cooler temperatures. Zack and Billy finally extinguished his flame breath with an ice weapon & assaulted him with the Power Blaster, weakening him to the point of his near destruction, forcing Zedd to make him grow. After the ensuing battle, which involved the Saliguana's tongue being severed after binding the Thunder Megazord with it (and eventually planning to eating it, as inferred by Saliguana stating "Ah! Lunch!" right before his tongue was chopped in half), the Thunder Megazord destroyed Saliguana with its Thunder Saber.
Because Zedd's magic was lifted, Saliguana reverted back to Miss Appleby's iguana, whom Bulk and Skull attempted to use to track down the Rangers in a failed attempt (although it did clear out everyone but the Power Rangers, Bulk and Skull, and Miss Appleby).
Trumpet Top summons an illusionary Saliguana amongst other monsters to wear out the monsters until Zordon saw through the plan.
Saliguana was later re-created by Finster to battle the Rangers in the "Spectre Theater." After fighting them, Saliguana attended Zedd & Rita's wedding, bringing them a human skull as a wedding gift while also interacting with Snizzard. When the monsters attacked the Rangers, Saliguana was destroyed, by the Thunder Megazord.
- Saliguana comes from what is commonly referred to as "Zyu2" footage, and was not seen in the original ZyuRanger. Saliguana was intended to be destroyed by the Dino Megazord. Discongruity between the monster and zords also explains why the black tongue of Evil Bookala is shown.
