Consumed By Edit
Zack is an outgoing and lively teenage boy who has a great love for break-dancing and often incorporates it into his battle style. Though he sometimes suffers from self-doubt, he proves to be a very capable fighter as a Power Ranger. During the Terror Toad battle, Zack continues to fight the monster without fear even after seeing his teammate Trini be eaten. Unfortunately, his efforts amount to little as the monster soon swallows him as well. During the battle against Invenusable Flytrap, he remains composed while trapped inside the monster and ultimately aids his team in breaking free of it.
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Season 1, Episode 12 Edit
In the episode Power Ranger Punks, Zack, as well as Jason and Trini, do battle with the monster Terror Toad. The trio prove to have little success in their attacks against the monster, and they are easily fended off. Early in the battle, Trini is transformed into an energy sphere and swallowed by the Terror Toad leaving only Zack and Jason to fight him. After several more failed assaults on the monster, Zack receives a powerful blow and is knocked to the ground. The Terror Toad then fires its energy tongue at Zack and he too is transformed into an energy sphere. He is drawn into the toad's mouth and he is swallowed whole, his helmet appearing on the monster's belly.
Zack remains trapped in the Terror Toad's stomach for most of the rest of the battle and his fellow Rangers Jason and Billy are swallowed as well. Zack and the others are eventually freed by fellow Ranger Kimberly who ultimately destroys the Terror Toad.
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Season 2, Episode 10 EditIn the episode Welcome to Venus Island, Zack and the rest of the Power Rangers battle the Invenusable Flytrap. During the battle, Zack, along with Jason, Billy, and Kimberly are struck by a beam fired from the Invenusable Flytrap's chest, which encircles them and turns them into energy. The beam retracts and they are sucked into the monster's stomach, in which they regain their human forms. While inside its stomach, he and the other consumed Rangers learn from fellow Power Rangers Trini and Tommy that the monster is weak to heat. Zack and the others then use their Power Coins to generate heat to weaken the monster and then fight their way out.
