- Villains in Power Rangers Operation Overdrive
The fictional villains of the Power Rangers universe that appeared in the television series Power Rangers Operation Overdrive come in various factions.
The first two groups seen are led by Flurious and Moltor, two brothers who are both after the Corona Aurora gems. They were originally human, but the power of the Corona Aurora transformed them into monsters and scattered them to distant planets. When the Corona was found by Andrew Hartford, the brothers were awoken and attacked Earth. The third group is led by ninja warriors Miratrix and Kamdor. A fourth group is a duo of cat-like aliens that were cybernetically upgraded. Each of the villainous factions works towards their own goal and as such they very often battle each other.

Flurious, originally human, has been transformed into a creature made up of ice. He is intelligent enough to create the gyro technology that powers the Fearcats and is incredibly powerful - he went toe-to-toe with Thor himself.
When he and Moltor were children, Flurious broke Moltor's little red sled, much to his brother's dismay. He is short-tempered and irritable, attacking Norg at the slightest provocation. He was the first of the two brothers to openly declare hostilities, attacking Moltor for the Corona Aurora and declaring "it's every man for himself" afterwards. He shows a heavy disdain for his brother (Flurious considers himself the smarter and more handsome one), laughing at his misfortunes and openly calling him to insult his intelligence. He always thinks of Moltor as incompetent, and gets easily annoyed when Moltor fails, although he fails too. One can infer from the verbal exchanges of the two siblings that Flurious is the older brother, though this was never stated onscreen.
Flurious took over Norg's ice cave and enslaved the yeti, and has regretted it ever since. He has tried several times to get Norg to either be useful - such as finding the Fearcat's base and getting him to run away - or leave, but with no luck.
Flurious went to Moltor's base, suggesting that with Miratrix and Kamdor searching for the jewels, it was time for the two brothers to put their differences aside and work together. They did manage to beat the Megazord with the cyborg-zords Moltor built, and capture Mack in the process. But Mack used their own suspicions and past issues to set them against each other, and at the end of the episode they were fighting once more.
Flurious is one of the least active of the villains, and has had the least success as a result. He originally tended to not search for the jewels, and just wait for Moltor to find them so he could steal them. However with the Fear Cats' debut, his way of thinking soon changed. He briefly attempted to work with other villains: he brought back the Fearcats as cyborgs with his gyro technology, intending for them to work for him, and teamed up with Kamdor to find the Cannon of Ki Amuk. This backfired when the Fearcats turned on him near-instantly and stole one of his robots, and Kamdor and Flurious fell out over whose fault it was. All three villains battled each other as a result, and - aside from Thrax's alliance - this was the last Flurious has tried working with others. The only exception since then came when the Fearcats were destroyed, and Flurious made a one-chance offer to Moltor to work for him; though it is unlikely that he thought his brother would actually take him up on the offer. Flurious gets his hands on the third jewel of the Corona Aurora, thanks to Norg. However, he doesn't show gratitude towards the poor Yeti. Flurious uses his jewel to destroy Moltor's lair, then commits fratricide by luring him to his lair and taking the Corona Aurora before freezing him solid, then shattering him. Using the combined power of the blue sapphire and the crown, Flurious was able to locate the rangers' base where the remaining jewels were hidden.
After an assault on their home Flurious steals the rest of the jewels. He then completes the crown and powers up to his ultimate form, a powerful golem/snowman-like monster composed of stone and ice called Flurrex. He then begins to bring a new ice age to the planet. During his fight with the rangers, Flurious grows to gigantic size and damaged the Rangers's zords with a single blast. Boasting that no human can stop him, Mack (who is an android) decides to face him alone in Battlizer mode while the others face his army of chillers. Mack defeats Flurious and separates him from the crown. Before Flurious can put the crown back on, Mack picks him up and destroys him for good.
He was portrayed by Gerald Urquhart.
Norg, a Yeti, lives in the cave that Flurious decided to use as a base. He is the last yeti, but has a cousin Sasquatch. Extremely dimwitted, to the point where he thinks penguins are trick-or-treaters in costume, he sees Flurious as his "new friend" even after being blasted (although eventually he realized this treatment was not out of friendship, this could have described Norg as Flurious's pet peeve). He assists in the villain's attempts to retrieve the Aurora gems out of coercion, though he does not appear to be evil himself and is more inclined to goof off on his missions.
He was guarding Mack while Moltor and Flurious attempted to start the DriveMax Megazord. He told Mack the secrets of both brothers and later on used the secrets against them. He finds the bodies of Mig and Benglo and Flurious tries his new gyros out on them and then they come back to life. Norg ran away from Flurious' lair after Flurious caught Norg on his throne then yelled at him for it. He went to Moltor's lair where he gave him Chillers to use and was told to stay. Moltor also had yelled Norg for catching him on his throne as well too. Norg realized and thought that Flurious missed him and after Moltor and his crew were defeated by the Rangers he kicked Norg out of his lair but not before telling Moltor he was glad Flurious broke his sled. Even Flurious in the end was not glad to see Norg either.
He wounded himself and was healed by Tyzonn and Rose; in return, he later used a healing ritual to save Tyzonn's life after the Ranger was wounded by the Fearcats. He proves he is an excellent tracker when he helps the Black Ranger find the Fearcats hideout. Norg tries to prove himself to Flurious by stealing the third jewel from Kamdor. He succeeds, by coincidence, and gives it to Flurious, who despite the efforts of Norg, doesn't thank him or change his perception of him. He then befriends Tyzonn's fiancee, Vella, who sees that he is not like Flurious and his soldiers. Norg also reveals to Vella that he knew Tyzonn. When Flurious completed the corona aurora he instructs his chillers to "Take care" of Vella and Norg, this sends Norg into a fury causing him to destroy all the chillers left behind. He then managed to escape from Flurious' lair with Vella.
He is now living with the Hartfords.
He was portrayed by Kelson Henderson.
Flurious' foot soldiers.
Most of Flurious's monsters are battle machine-based:
- First Appearance: "The Underwater World"
A temple belonging to the lost city of Atlantis underwater where the Rangers were exploring into for a gem, it was brought to the surface. Flurious interrupted their search and made the temple come to life. The moving temple was easily defeated by the DriveMax Megazord using the Sword Combination.
- First Appearance: "Behind the Scenes"
A large robot Flurious created with an enlarged Gyro as its power source. Originally Flurious was going to pilot it to retrieve the ancient Cannon of Kiamook, but it was stolen by the Fearcats in an act of betrayal.
Moltor, like his brother Flurious, was also originally human, but was transformed into a red, fire-elemental dragon-like creature when he attempted to steal the Corona Aurora. When he and Flurious were kids, Flurious broke Moltor's little red sled, resulting in a long-lasting grudge. He considers himself a warrior and is extremely strong, capable of taking on all five Rangers at once. He wields two swords in battle. He is also shown capable of wielding magic, such as turning Tyzonn into a reptilian servant and forcing him to work under him. He's every bit as strong as his brother, having fought him to draw when they first fought (they fight each other in later episodes, but these battles always end in a draw).
He is far more direct and aggressive than his brother; when they arrived on Earth, he attacked the Rangers directly and abducted Andrew Hartford to secure the Corona crown. He is responsible for far more attacks and schemes than Flurious and as a result has seen more success - he gained possession of the Corona and once stole the Compass relic right as the Rangers retrieved it. He is vicious and merciless; in his debut, he unleashed a volcanic eruption on San Angeles merely as a diversion, and in later instance killed some of his Lava Lizards just because he was angry.
His grudge with his brother has left them bitter enemies. He wishes for his brother to respect him, and tried to achieve this by taking control of the weather and flooding the planet. Moltor agrees to Flurious' suggestion that with Miratrix and Kamdor searching for the crown, the two brothers are better off working together. However, Mack used their own suspicions and hatred of each other to set them fighting again. Despite this failed alliance, he later joined forces with the Fearcats and had much more success with them than Flurious did: constructing a Cybernetic Rex capable of defeating the DriveMax Ultrazord, capturing Ronny to use as a power source, and briefly turning the Sentinel Knight evil.
With his volcano lair falling apart due to Flurious's jewel, Moltor decided to lead his lava lizards in an all out attack on the rangers to gain the remaining jewels. Mack arrived to get the crown from Moltor and a vicious battle ensued, which ended when the other rangers came to get Mack out. Barely surviving the battle and the destruction of his lair, Moltor came to Flurious's den with Tyzonn's fiance, Vella, and the crown. In his weakened state, Flurious was easily able to destroy him and take the crown.
Moltor design was based on the Dini Megazord
He was voiced by Mark Ferguson.
Moltor's foot soldiers. Their design is based on the DragonZord
Most of Moltor's monsters are based on dinosaurs and/or dragons whether they were enhanced Lava Lizards or giant pilotable cyborgs:
Giant Sea Monster
- First Appearance: "Kick Into Overdrive" Pt. 1
A giant Brachiosaurus monster that emerged from the sea after Andrew Hartford was rescued. Although it was defeated by the DriveMax Megazord, Moltor activated the monster's self-destruct to blow up the Megazord and kill the Rangers, but the DriveMax Megazord kicked the monster away before it blew up.
Weather Machine Monster
- First Appearance: "Weather or Not"
Moltor created a weather control device that began to malfunction when it's alien technology was introduced to human technology without proper configuration and thus began to turn the entire area into a frozen wasteland. Soon after, the Weather Machine transformed into a rogue monster, which gave the Rangers a hard time, until it was destroyed by the DriveMax Megazord Drill Formation through its center.
- First Appearance: "At All Cost"
- Voice Actor: James Gaylyn
Moltor had his Lava Lizards fight each other to the death until only one was standing. That Lava Lizard was transformed into Volcan. Moltor assigned him the job to obtain the Fire Heart scale that was on its way to Andrew Hartford's mansion. Moltor's plan was to use the scale to power up this monster into the utimate beast by exposing the scale to the increasing temperature of the factory where they were located. But the scale was stolen from the building before preventing the building's explosion using the DriveMax Megazord's Mixer Formation. The Rangers reclaimed the scale for the new Defender Vest and destroyed Volcan with the new Drill Blaster.
- First Appearance: "Follow the Ranger"
A huge robot that was created and piloted by Moltor. While possessing immense strength, this robot could also fire Gatling gun blasts and chains that can wrap around the enemy. It was destroyed by the Super Drivemax Megazord.
- First Appearance: "Follow the Ranger"
A large dragon-like robot that was piloted by Flurious during his truce with Moltor. It wields a boomerang in battle. The Dragonizer was first piloted by Lava Lizards to defeat the DriveMax Megazord and later piloted by Flurious himself when it was destroyed by the Super Drivemax Megazord.
- First Appearance: "Lights, Camera, Dax"
- Voice Actor: Patrick Kake
An armored dragon-like creature sent by Moltor to hunt down Kamdor and Miratrix. He retrieved the Ancient Parchment from them and brought it back to Moltor. During his fight with the Rangers, Kamdor and Miratrix blasted the cave, causing rocks to fall and bury Scaletex. Scaletex never escaped the burial and was presumed destroyed.
- First Apprarance: "Face to Face" Pt. 1
- Voice Actor: Dwayne Cameron
Moltor turned a Mercurian named Tyzonn into a Pachycephalosaurus/dragon-like creature upon defeating him and later used him to obtain a parchment from the Rangers. When engaging Mack, the Parchmant was torn and Tyzonn made off with the bigger piece. While trying to recollect other part of the Parchment, Tyzonn helped a woman before being attacked by Ronny in the Transtech Armor. Mack later chased after Tyzonn while the others battled Bullox. When Tyzonn did not want to work with Moltor anymore, Moltor attacked them both. Mack saved Tyzonn and Tyzonn later revealed his story to the Rangers. While helping translate the parchment, Tyzonn spilled lemonade on it to reveal a hidden longitude and latitude of the location. In Indonesia, Tyzonn engaged Bullox in battle and was losing until Mack joined the fight and did a combo attack on Bullox. While riding in the Sonic Streaker, Tyzonn used his form to obtain the Toru Diamond from within the volcano's crater. After Bullox's destruction, two of the Corona Jewels obtained by the Rangers restored Tyzonn back to normal thanks to the information from the Sentinel Knight.
- First Appearance: "Face to Face" Pt. 1
- Voice Actor: Will Wallace
A four-eyed bull/dragon creature sent to assist Tyzonn in obtaining the parchment. He wields a crescent-tipped scepter in battle and he can breathe fire. After Tyzonn turned against Moltor, Bullox was ordered to destroy Tyzonn, who eventually got away with the help of Mack. Thus, Bullox and Moltor were on their trail. When it came to the ambush at the Toru Diamond's location in Indonesia, he engaged Tyzonn in battle where Bullox was winning until Mack joins the fight and does a combo attack on Bullox. As Mack is riding in the Sonic Streaker fighting the Lavadactyls, Bullox was taken down by the Defender Vests and Drill Blaster. Moltor shot a dart at Bullox to make him grow and he went head-to-head with the Super DriveMax Megazord and was winning until Mack arrived in the Sonic Streaker. It took the power of the new DriveMax Ultrazord to destroy Bullox.
- First Appearance: "Face to Face" Pt. 2
A trio of Pteranodon-like that were each piloted by a Lava Lizard. They can shoot lasers from their mouths. Their purpose was to ambush the Rangers and Tyzonn during their quest for the Toru Diamond and the fight against Bullox. Each was destroyed by Mack in the newly dispatched Sonic Streaker. In "Ronny on Empty", Moltor created a Cybernetic Rex who launched two swarms of these. The first swarm was destroyed by the Drivemax Ultrazord, the second swarm by the Battlefleet ship.
- First Appearance: "Out of Luck"
- Voice Actor: Charlie McDermott
A red Chinese Dragon-like monster who is an old friend of Moltor. He was given a luck-altering compass that Moltor stole from the Rangers. He can breathe fire and bring down red lightning from the skies. He battled against the Rangers, using the power of the compass to aid him in battle. He then used it to alter the chi and li of Mack and induce bad luck on him, and Mack started to suffer from those very effects after Blothgaar retreated. Later, the Rangers (including Mack, who was draped in the several good-luck charms his fellow Rangers gave him) confronted Blothgaar again, as well as Moltor and an army of Lava Lizards. Mack used the charms to help him out against Blothgaar, and was eventually able to retrieve the compass. He then put down Blothgaar with his Drive Lance, and Rose used the compass to reverse Mack's luck to normal. Soon, though, Moltor threw Blothgaar into the valley, having him absorb the energy and grow, making the Rangers call on the DriveMax and Flashpoint Megazords. In battle, the Rangers used the compass combined with the DriveMax Megazord saber to bestow the bad luck upon Blothgaar, who then stumbled on a rock. Blothgaar soon met his destruction at the hands of the Super DriveMax Megazord.
- First Appearance: "Ronny on Empty" Pt. 1
A robotic Tyrannosaurus created and piloted by Moltor. It can bite, shoot lasers from its cannons, and it also has the ability to launch swarms of Lavadactyls. Moltor asked the Fearcats for a gyro to power it, but the gyro somehow doesn't work. Then Moltor and the Fearcats plan to capture Ronny to drain her energy as an alternative power source. Once powered, it proves itself powerful enough to counter attack and defeat the Drivemax Ultrazord. It was running out of power as the Battlefleet Ship appeared and Moltor retreated. During the second fight, it was easily destroyed at hands of the Battlefleet Megazord.
- First Appearance: "Nothing to Lose"
- Voice Actor: Mark Wright
A Styracosaurus/dragon-like monster with tentacles for a left hand. This monster accompanied Moltor in obtaining the Tri-Dragon Key in Japan. He can turn his tentacles into replicates of the Rangers' weapons. Although he at first had trouble duplicating the Black Ranger's Drive Slammer, he could also use his tentacles to track down the Tri-Dragon Key. Magmador was destroyed by the Sentinel Knight and Flashpoint Megazord Crane Formation.
Kamdor is Miratrix's master. He was trapped inside a jewel that Miratrix wore around her neck after he saved her on a distant planet, and was eventually released by a device Will stole for Miratrix (while undercover). He wields two swords that can combine to form a double-bladed naginata, and he can create monsters and enlarge them using sutras. He has no foot soldiers, but once brainwashed ninja-garbed stunt men at a movie set into serving him.
He battles both the Rangers and other villains in his search for the jewels; he has clashed with Moltor and the Fearcats several times. He has briefly worked with Flurious and was part of Thrax's army (teaming up with Mig to attack Stonehenge), but his alliances are brief and don't last. He has clashed with Will several times, first when the Ranger was pretending to defect to evil (Kamdor never trusted him), again to steal the third jewel. Dinally he accuses Will of constantly failing in the last episode showing a specific contempt of him, and was quite surprised to find how strong Will really was in their final clash.
He and Miratrix have had greater success than most of their rival villains in searching for the jewels, mostly due to the fact that they are more covert than the other villains who mostly use brute force. They were able to steal the Parchment left behind by the Ho-Oh bird, the third jewel of the Corona Aurora, and located and gained the fourth jewel (though Ronny used her superspeed to pickpocket it from him).
He had a strong partnership with Miratrix. Aside from being imprisoned saving her life, he had shown an amiable working relationship with her. When she was knocked flying by the Fearcats, he sounded genuinely concerned. However, he still didn't view her as an equal and left her out of the details of some of his plans - he organized an alliance with Flurious without her, and he was shown not informing her of the plan in advance and sending her against the Rangers while he searched for the jewel, even though she technically wasn't needed. The relationship had collapsed, and he told her that he was wrong 'to think she could be more than she is', dismissing her as a "worthless greedy underling".
He was shown to be increasingly irate about losing to the Rangers, and angrily beat the Mercury Ranger into unconsciousness; at the end of the 2-parter, he declared to Miratrix he was tired of the failures and "it's time to make our final move".
Later he made his final move in waiting for the Rangers to do the hard work and then attacking with sudden force, successfully stealing the Golden Plate that led to the fifth jewel. He also imprisoned Miratrix in the jewel that had once held him. He used the third jewel to summon a meteor to Earth as a diversionary tactic, and Will had to face Kamdor in a solo duel while the other Rangers handled the meteor. During this time Kamdor switched to his Duel Mode where his mask parts gave way to reveal his true, gray monstrous face. Kamdor, deliberately taking this battle "to the end", was eventually destroyed by the Black Ranger, and the Plate was retrieved.
He was voiced by Adam Gardiner (though Richard Simpson had been credited as Kamdor in "Pirate in Pink").
Miratrix was first shown in her human disguise of Mira. Faking a monster attack for Dax to save her from, she managed to become his girlfriend and used this position to gain the Sword of Neptune scrolls. She slipped up by mentioning the Rangers' quest for the jewels, about which Dax had never told her; as a result, she was tricked into stealing a fake scroll and her plan was thwarted.
Miratrix has served Kamdor loyally after he was imprisoned saving her life, and together they search for the Corona jewels. She is a dangerous warrior, facing the Rangers with her hand-to-hand and tantō sword skill. She was attracted to Will when he pretended to defect, and was angered when she discovered it had been an act.
She's shown the ability to go undercover - Miratrix disguised herself as an aid from the Mayor of San Angeles' office in order to give them Kamdor's fake medals to immobilize the new Mercury Ranger. She went undercover in Egypt and was able to overhear information the Rangers were given without being noticed.
She had a strong partnership with Kamdor and was always at his side, serving him loyally. She seemed very friendly with him, but she was once frustrated by not being let in on his plans and being dispatched against the Rangers while he searched for the fourth jewel. She appeared to have believed she was considered an equal, whereas he actually treated her as a trusted subordinate. Finally after an unsuccessful attempt at reclaiming the Octavian Chalice from the rangers, Kamdor told Miratrix he was tired of her failures and stated she was only an underling and he'd been a fool to believe she could be more.
In retaliation, an upset Miratrix interrupted the ceremony the Rangers were holding involving the Chalice, attempting to gain its power. She was transformed into a giant owl-like monster thanks to its energy, and in this form had enough power to take down the BattleFleet Megazord until Tyzonn and Ronny managed to break her connection to the Chalice. After being defeated by the Rangers and reverting back to her normal form, Kamdor arrived without warning to exploit the situation. He revealed he had been using her to do just what she had done, and after letting Miratrix have a moment of despair, he imprisoned her in the jewel he had originally been sealed in.
Whether Kamdor had the jewel at the time of his eventual destruction is unknown, though Flurious stated that Miratrix was also destroyed.
She was portrayed by Ria Vandervis.
Most of the monsters that Kamdor creates look like they are made up of two items:
- First Appearance: "Heart of Blue"
- Voice Actor: Richard Simpson
A Lock/data disk monster that assisted Miratrix in obtaining the Neptune Scrolls. It was first seen trying to "kidnap" Mira in order to lure Dax to where he was in the city. Dax attacked the monster and gave him a beating to impress Mira; soon the monster retreated. Later, Ultrog returned, seeking the Neptune scrolls. The Rangers battled him, but because Dax's heart was so tender after thinking about Mira, Dax could not handle him. Ultrog threatened to take Mira away again unless the Rangers gave him the scrolls. Dax, feeling helpless, handed them over, but the monster left with Mira anyway. Ultrog had absorbed the power of the two scrolls he had taken, making him stronger than before. He proved to be too much for the other four Rangers when he battled them again that night, but the tables were turned when Dax came back to join the others, as well as to reveal that the third scroll that Mira (who finally revealed to Dax her true identity of the evil Miratrix) had stolen was a fake. The Rangers soon took out Ultrog, but from inside the jewel of Miratrix's necklace, Kamdor used a sutra to make Ultrog grow. After forming the DriveMax Megazord, Ultrog had the upper hand again, but then Spencer gave the Rangers the power of the third scroll, which allowed them to suck the power of the other scrolls out of the monster; the scrolls then made their way back into Spencer's hands. Soon afterwards, Ultrog was destroyed by the DriveMax Megazord Saber.
- First Appearance: "Pirate in Pink"
An arquebus/factory object monster summoned by Kamdor from an abandoned pirate ship cannon. He was sent alongside Miratrix to obtain the Eye of the Sea. He attacked the Rangers until Rose, who was possessed by Brownbeard the Pirate's ghost, gave him and Miratrix a beating. Later, when Brownbeard left Rose, Brownbeard had the Eye of the Sea until Miratrix and Bombardo attacked and made off with the Eye of the Sea. Brownbeard caught up with Miratrix and Bombardo and tried to reclaim the Eye of the Sea. They almost finished him off but Rose came just in time to save him. Bombardo used the Eye of the Sea to turn into a giant buzzsaw machine, but was taken out by the Shovel Driver, causing him to revert back. Kamdor made Bombardo grow and he was destroyed by the Drivemax Megazord Shovel Formation.
Big Mouth Monster
- First Appearance: "Both Sides Now"
- Voice Actor: Mark Williams
A purse/vacuum cleaner monster created by Kamdor from a blue purse that was on a picnic blanket. While Kamdor was battling Will, Miratrix called on Kamdor to create the monster. Soon the monster attacked the other Rangers while Miratrix continued her hunt for the Hou-ou bird. Three of the Rangers struggled against the monster, but Ronny was able to handle him. Will, after defeating Kamdor, soon came in to give the others an added advantage. Mack used his Drill Blaster to take the monster out, but Kamdor made him grow. The Rangers used their Crane Driver to trap the monster, and then they finished him off with the DriveMax Megazord Drill and Crane Formation while he was still trapped.
- First Appearance: "Lights, Camera, Dax"
A dark clay/camera monster created by Kamdor from a moving camera. He and the Amplifier monster fought Moltor's Lava Lizards alongside the ninja stuntmen that Kamdor brainwashed which then turned into a three-way battle when the Power Rangers entered the fray. The Camera Monster was destroyed by Dax in the Transtek Armor.
- First Appearance: "Lights, Camera, Dax"
A fire stove bellow/loudspeaker monster created by Kamdor from a loudspeaker. He and the Camera Monster fought Moltor's Lava Lizards alongside the ninja stuntmen that Kamdor brainwashed which then turned into a three-way battle when the Power Rangers entered the fray. The Amplifier Monster was destroyed by Dax in the Transtek Armor.
- First Appearance: "It's Hammer Time"
A top hat/animal picture book monster created by Kamdor from a silk top hat. He seemed to act and be referred to as a magician. Kamdor made it grow right after it was created. When engaging the Drivemax Ultrazord and the Flashpoint Megazord, it summoned a snake from its hat to constrict the Drivemax Ultrazord and used its umbrella to deflect the Flashpoint Megazord's attack. The Flashpoint Megazord combined with the Drill Driver and the Shovel Driver which Tyzonn used to destroy the monster.
- First Appearance: "Once a Ranger" Pt. 1
A sextant/chalk monster that assisted Kamdor and Miratrix in a museum robbery to steal a gem that they thought was a Corona Aurora jewel. The jewel just turned out to be an "ordinary" rare ruby. This monster was destroyed by Tyzonn using the Drive Detector.
- First Appearance: "Things Not Said"
- Voice Actor: Gerald Urquhart
A computer/good luck charm monster created by Kamdor from a computer. He created a computer virus that infected the BattleFleet Zords, the Ranger's base computers and Mack himself (who turned out to be an android). The Rangers destroyed Datum with the Battle Fleet Megazord, but Datum's virus extracted the decoded location of the Star of Isis right onto Kamdor's computer.
- First Appearance: "Things Not Said"
A bowling ball-headed monster with a body of multiple other items such as a fan, an air conditioner, and other garbage. It was summoned by Kamdor alongside four other monster to fight the Rangers so that Kamdor can retrieve the Star of Isis. He fought Dax after being created, and wielded a bowling pin. He was the first monster to be destroyed by the Red Sentinel Ranger after being hit with a power punch.
- First Appearance: "Things Not Said"
A mechanical golem monster that was summoned by Kamdor to fight the Rangers so that Kamdor can retrieve the Star of Isis. He fought Will after being created. He was the second monster to be destroyed by the Red Sentinel Ranger using a shockwave.
- First Appearance: "Things Not Said"
A statue monster that was summoned by Kamdor to fight the Rangers so that Kamdor can retrieve the Star of Isis. He can shoot beams from his eyes and wields a sword. He fought Ronny after being created. He was the third monster to be destroyed by the Red Sentinel Ranger using his finisher.
- First Appearance: "Things Not Said"
A winged kunoichi monster was summoned by Kamdor alongside other monsters to fight the Rangers while he took the Star of Isis. She wielded two large swords and fought Rose. She was the fourth monster to be destroyed by the Red Sentinel Ranger, who used a sword slash.
- First Appearance: "Things Not Said"
A prince monster with glass slippers on the sides of his head that was summoned by Kamdor to fight the Rangers so that Kamdor can retrieve the Star of Isis. He wielded a rapier in battle when he fought Tyzonn after being created. He was the fifth monster to be destroyed by the Red Sentinel Ranger and his tornado finisher.
The Fearcats were the last members of a dangerous race of demonic, feline extraterrestrials running free in the universe. They were malicious, and their debut episode showed that they enjoyed destroying things and hurting people just to show that they could. They also had a personal history with Tyzonn - they deliberately killed his teammates for fun, after Tyzonn had sent them into a mine to rescue the workers from the Fearcats, whom he thought were trapped. As natural Fearcats they had the ability to grow by ripping off their skin.
Originally Mig and his partner Cheetar came to Earth to find and use the jewels of the Corona Aurora to free their kind from the Prison Mirror, but after becoming impatient they used Ronny's morpher instead. As a result, Benglo was freed before the Prison Mirror itself was destroyed by Tyzonn, which in turn also permanently trapped the remaining Fearcats imprisoned within. Cheetar then sacrificed himself to save the two stronger Fearcats by using the last of his strength to grow and confront the Rangers' Zords in a battle to the death. The two remaining Fearcats would also later be killed when they attempted to use the same tactic, but, unlike Cheetar, they were not completely destroyed when struck down.
Norg discovered their lifeless bodies and Flurious revived them as cyborgs using his gyro technology. Using their enhanced powers they almost killed the Rangers in the first few confrontations until Tyzonn stepped in as the Mercury Ranger. Though Flurious originally intended for the Fearcats to serve him, the duo betrayed him by stealing the giant robot he built and struck out on their own. They decided to find the Corona jewels to fulfil their own ambitions and eliminate Tyzonn for the destruction of their Fearcat army. They were stronger than before now that they were cyborgs, and used the very same technology to fashion their own giant robots.
The only other remaining Fearcat, Crazar, joined her cybernized comrades in search for the Octavian Chalice; using it in conjunction with three other relics (which they stole from the rival villains), they created the titantic cyborg-golem Agrios and almost succeeded in destroying the Rangers. Agrios eventually fell to combined Zord firepower and all three Fearcats were taken out by the Rangers.
Mig was a green and purple cat-like alien who could conjure up a bazooka-like weapon. Mig had a rivalry with Tyzonn, being the one responsible for killing his rescue team. As a cyborg, he was now armed with two pistols that double as short swords, and he possessed far more power. Mig seemed to be the cockier of the two and acted a little immature in battle, and was the one most often seen in battle against the Rangers. He once came close to killing Tyzonn, but was beaten back by an Rose. In "Once a Ranger," he was impressed with Kamdor's knowledge of Stonehenge when they were sent there to look for the Corona Aurora gems. Following Agrios' defeat, he engaged Tyzonn in single combat and was destroyed by the Mercurian.
He was voiced by Kelson Henderson.
Benglo is a fire-breathing, Bengal tiger-like alien. He was trapped inside the prison mirror until Cheetar and Mig freed him. As a cyborg, his power was great, and he was armed with a sword/shotgun weapon. Benglo seemed to be very serious, acting as a foil to Mig's impulsive nature, and left most of the fighting to Mig while he piloted their various giant robots. After Agrios was defeated, he fought the five main Rangers while Mig battled Tyzonn. After witnessing the demise of his partner Benglo vowed vengeance, but before he could enact it he too met his end when he was destroyed by the Red Sentinel Ranger.
He was voiced by David Weatherley.
Cheetar was a black cat/cheetah Fearcat, with a short violent temper, who came to earth with Mig to search for the jewels of the Corona Aurora in an attempt to free their army from the prison mirror. Cheetar and Mig kidnapped Ronny and successfully managed to free Benglo from the mirror, only for it to be destroyed by Ronny and Tyzonn, thus destroying the other Fearcats still sealed within. Later on, Cheetar took the hit from the Drill Blaster for Mig and Benglo. He then used the last of his energy to enlarge himself and was killed in battle by the DriveMax Ultrazord. Unlike Mig and Benglo, who were also later killed by the DriveMax Ultrazord, Cheetar's body was completely destroyed in the blast preventing any chance of possible revival.
He was voiced by James Gaylyn.
Crazar was a female wolf-like Fearcat, who was thought to have been killed in the same cave-in that Mig caused to kill Tyzonn's teammates and fiancé Vella long ago. Tyzonn stated that she was "worse than Mig and Benglo", and she showed a sadistic delight in tormenting him over Vella's apparent demise. Actually, Vella is alive; Crazar had somehow placed her in Moltor's custody, and had developed the ability to replicate the Mercurian's form, seemingly just to use it against Tyzonn. She also had the power to create highly realistic illusions.
Upon arriving on Earth she teamed up with Mig and Benglo and helped them obtain the Octavian Chalice. During her fight with the DualDrive Megazord, Tyzonn had attempted to destroy her completely with an ancient Mercurian spell. It failed and Crazar resurfaced. She impersonated Tyzonn's fiancé Vella and created an illusion of Mercuria, trying to convince Tyzonn that everything since the cave-in had been a dream so he had be kept out of the way of the other Fearcats. Crazar's cover was eventually and unintentionally blown by Spencer and she was destroyed for good in a vicious battle against Tyzonn.
She was voiced by Lori Dungey.
Most of the Fearcats' monsters are giant robots that can be piloted by the Fearcats:
- First Appearance: "It's Hammer Time"
A giant jet-themed robot piloted by Mig and Benglo. It was their secret weapon and they used it to attack the city while the Rangers and Thor were battling Flurious and his Chillers. The Drivemax Megazord engaged it in battle while Thor and Tyzonn dealt with Flurious. The Drivemax Megazord was overwhelmed until Tyzonn joined the fight in the Flashpoint Megazord. Both Megazords were losing until Thor attacked the robot. The Drivemax Ultrazord destroyed this robot.
- First Appearance: "One Gets Away"
A giant commando-themed robot piloted by Mig and Benglo. They use it to attack the city and the Rangers while Will was battling Kamdor and Miratrix. It disabled the DriveMax Ultrazord's flight mode and was scared off by the Rescue Runners. As it was getting away Will morphed and used his OO Zip Line and rode on the robot. Later on, Mig piloted the robot and upgraded it with the Super Armor turning it into a Samurai-themed robot. It defeated the Super DriveMax and Flashpoint Megazords forcing the Rangers to separate the zords and make different combos. It took the DriveMax Megazord Crane Formation to remove the armor reverting it back to its default form. The DriveMax Megazord with Rescue Runners 1 and 2 and the Flashpoint Megazord with the Dozer and Sub Drivers to destroy this robot.
- First Appearance: "One Fine Day"
A giant battle helicopter-themed robot piloted by Mig and Benglo. It was powered by the Centurion Torch. Despite his enormous firepower, the Centurion Robot was defeated by the Drivemax Ultrazord.
- First Appearance: "Home and Away" Pt. 1
A gigantic powerful homunculus monster that was created by the Fearcats after they mixed Minerva's Staff, The Root of Hesper, and The Sands of Sila inside the Octavian Chalice (after stealing each of them from Moltor, Flurious, and Kamdor). The Fearcats were able to harness the monster's abilities like a giant robot after they attached their own robotic armor with their cockpit in it. The DriveMax Ultrazord clashed with Agrios but was not able to defeat it. Then the Battlefleet was summoned and turned into the Battlefleet Megazord followed by the Sentinel Knight, but none of them were able to defeat Agrios. Agrios even attacked the other villains. Mack used the Flashpoint Megazord to fight Agrios. The Zords were eventually repaired just in time to help Mack. All three Megazords engaged Agrios. While wielding the Sentinel Sword and riding the Battlefleet ship, Agrios was finally destroyed by the DriveMax Megazord.
Thrax is the son of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers villains Rita Repulsa and Lord Zedd, and the grandson of Master Vile. He appears as the main villain in the "Once a Ranger" episodes. Thrax inherited most of his appearance from his father, it seems, due to his physical appearance and his Z-Staff. His powers seem to be similar to those of his father. His mother's appearance isn't apparent, except that he has a part humanoid (similar to Grimlord from VR Troopers) face, and torn cloth-like orange ornaments wrapped around his horns. One similarity to his mother is that he too was imprisoned in a space dumpster. His jawbone resembles that of his uncle, Rito Revolto and has a skeletal spinal column, a combination resembling his father and uncle. His shoulder pads and chest armor are similar to Zeltrax from Power Rangers Dino Thunder. He was imprisoned by the Sentinel Knight in a space dumpster, much like Zordon had done to his mother pre-Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. He grew stronger as the Sentinel Knight grew weaker and was able to escape as his mother did on the moon, and now he sought revenge on the Sentinel Knight. Angry at his parents for becoming good and wanting to restore their evil legacy, he united the four Overdrive villain groups into an alliance to destroy the Power Rangers. They managed to defeat the Rangers easily and break their link to the Universal Morphing Grid, stripping them of their powers. When the Sentinel Knight responded by creating a team of veteran Rangers, Thrax decided to seek out the magical sword Excelsior to destroy him - following Mack right to it. However, because of Thrax's evil nature, he was unable to claim the sword and he retreated to continue his rampage. Thrax proved to be a strong fighter in the final battle, managing to overpower the Defender Vest, before being beaten aside by Adam. Thrax was finally destroyed by the newly (and fully) restored Sentinel Knight, causing the other villains to retreat and continue their rivalry.
He was portrayed by Glen Levy.
- First Appearance: "Once a Ranger" Pt. 1 (07/23/07)
A vulture-like monster created by Thrax. Supposedly according to Thrax, he is invincible, or was thought to be. He is grown and sent to attack the Rangers in their Megazords only to be destroyed by Mack using Excelsior. Later he was (somehow) found weakened but in one piece by the villains and Flurious managed to restore his strength and upgrade him with a Gyro into the more-human like Vulturus Maximus. In this second form, he was destroyed by the Mercury Ranger's Drive Detector.
