"In the 1992 Japanese program Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger (Dinosaur Squadron Beast Rangers), the original Super Sentai incarnation of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Season 1, the so-called "Dora Monsters", most of them male, existed in both the Japanese and American versions but had different names - for instance, Dora Argos in Zyuranger is better known in MMPR as Eye Guy, Dora Ladon and Dora Endos are known as Snizzard and Pineoctopus respectively, Dora Goblin is called Gnarly Gnome, Dora Sphinx is King Sphinx, and Dora Circe is called Pudgy Pig (Circe was originally the name of an enchantress able to turn greedy sailors into pigs (literally) and the moly herb was her only weakness). Those called Dora Knight beware - for Dora Knight was the original Zyuranger name of Knasty Knight, sent by Bandora/Rita Repulsa to fight either the Japanese rangers - red ranger Geki, black ranger Goushi, blue ranger Dan, yellow ranger Boi (a male in the Japanese version which is why the costume is skirtless), and pink ranger Mei - in Zyuranger or their American equivalents Jason, Zack, Billy, Trini, and Kimberly in MMPR (the title of the American version of that episode is 'Happy Birthday, Zack')."
