Biography170 million years ago, Bandora was originally Queen of the Dall Tribe, but went mad with grief when her son Kai was killed by a Tyrannosaurus for smashing its eggs. Swearing revenge, Bandora sold her soul to Dai-Satan for great magical powers but in doing so lost all memory of Kai, leading her to wage war on the other tribes and driving the dinosaurs to the brink of extinction before the Guardian Beasts sealed her and her followers Grifforzer, Totpat, Bookback, and Pleprechaun away on the planet Nemesis.
In 1992, she and her minions were unwittingly released by a group of astronauts and Bandora resumed her mission to turn Earth into a barren wasteland but was frequently opposed by the Zyurangers who had been put in magical stasis to awaken and protect the Earth should Bandora ever escape.
Due to her contract with Dai-Satan, Bandora possesses seemingly limitless magical powers including energy blasts, teleportation, and the ability to enlarge her monsters by invoking underworld spirits to infuse the Dora Monsters with their power upon throwing her wand into the ground. As the memories of her own son have been stripped from her, Bandora especially hates children and frequently goes out of her way to harm them or use them as pawns in her various plans. Like most Sentai arch-enemies, she gets especially furious when her plans fail, often lashing out at her underlings and developing stress headaches. She also at times displays a humorous eccentricity; breaking out into her theme song, Dora! The Song of Witch Bandora whenever things go in her favor or going on a crash diet to the point that she couldn't even properly use her magic.
During the finale, Bandora loses her powers after shedding tears over Kai's second death, as a witch only loses her power upon crying. Powerless, Bandora was sealed away once more by Shinka Gattai Daizyuzin along with her henchmen. During the last time we see her, she is overwhelmed by the cuteness of Grifforzer and Lamy's son and cradles him around.
