Arachnor officially debuts in the thirty-fifth episode when she appeared in the Skull Cavern after Diabolico asked about a monster. Arachnor was a very powerful monster as she could scan the Rangers' weapons and find their weak places. The monster also could make a strong web. Arachnor could also make spider eggs and she needed to feed her babies. Arachnor attacked the city with an army of Batlings and started kidnapping people. The Rangers appeared and destroyed the Batlings, but Arachnor scanned their weapons and disappeared.

In the next encounter, Arachnor fought only with four Rangers without Carter. Arachnor easily defeated the Rangers as she knew their weapons and captured them. When Carter appeared, Arachnor turned into a spider and followed Carter to the Aquabase. The sinister spider monster kidnapped all the people in the Aquabase, including Captain Mitchell and Ms. Fairweather, and held them captive in the web. The Rangers are held captive in her web, along with other civilian victims. The spider eggs are in the center and were about to hatch but both them and the web were destroyed by Carter's Rescue Blaster before he freed the Rangers. Carter then used the Trans Armor Cycle to form his new Battlizer at which point he fought Arachnor. The monster was angered when her scans couldn't comprehend such a well designed device and shot Carter but the wheels on his shoulders deflected them. He then shot the monster from the pylon and launched the tires to force her into flying at him. Carter then destroyed Arachnor with a single charged shot from his arm blasters.

Personality

Arachnor is a very aggressive monster who will do anything to feed her babies. She is shown to be very devious, manipulative, and unpredictable as she kidnapped four Rangers and all the people on the Aquabase. She is also highly arrogant and confident as she underestimated Carter and it finally led to her demise. But she is also loyal to Diabolico.

Notes

  • Arachnor's counterpart was originally the first monster attacked by the V-Lancers.
    • This was changed for Power Rangers because the V-Lancers did not destroy her. Instead, she was killed by Dark King Zylpheeza (Diabolico's counterpart) impaling her through the stomach with his staff which was considered too violent.
  • Like Smogger and Moleman, but unlike her counterpart, Arachnor does not get revived into a giant and engage in a Megazord battle only to be slain by the Lightspeed Megazord.
    • The most likely reason it was cut is because her counterpart was grabbed by the Lightspeed Megazord only to blast it free from lightning from her chest-nipples. This would be seen as provocative by an American audience and cutting this lengthy bit out would make the Zord fight extremely short so they opted out of adapting it at all.
  • Arachnor is the first and only monster to be fought by the Trans Armor Cycle since the only other times it was used were during "Rise of the Super Demons" alongside them to destroy Olympius and in the Lightspeed/Time Force team-up where it destroyed Vypra for good.
  • Arachnor is one of the more gender confusing monsters in Lightspeed Rescue. Due to her having spider eggs, many fans believed that Arachnor was a female monster, but he has a more male-like voice and was given male suffixes.
  • In the S.P.D. episode "Idol," Arachnor's head and arms were recycled for an S.P.D. cadet that is present when Anubis Cruger returns to Delta Base.

  • Arachnor is unique among Lightspeed Rescue monsters as she was not seen to be created from one of Jinxer's cards. She seemed to be a pre-existing monster that aligned herself with the Demons, possibly to prevent them from destroying her, if they took over the world. The original footage of Diabolico summoning Arachnor from a card with Jinxer's help was not used.
  • Arachnor, similarly to Treevil, is shown in the Shadow World as being previously destroyed, before gaining his own episode.
