Biography

Migbenglo.png

Many years ago Mig was the leader of Fearcats and they were sworn enemies of Tyzonn and his team and they also kidnapped Vella.

When Mig and Cheetar captured Ronny, they stole her Overdrive Tracker and used it to release Benglo from the Prison Mirror and appeared to be stronger than them. The Rangers thought they had seen the last of them when they defeated them with the DriveMax Ultrazord. Norg took the bodies of Mig and Benglo to Flurious who used his Gyros to revive the two Fearcats, and make them his servants.

After Agrios was defeated, he fought the five main Rangers while Mig battled Tyzonn. After witnessing the demise of Mig, he vowed vengeance, but before he could do anything, he was destroyed by the Red Sentinel Ranger. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Home and Away

Personality

Unlike his partner Mig, Bengelo is much more levelheaded and mature, but is just as vicious, ruthless, and sadistic as him. However, despite his evil traits, Benglo was shown to be good friends with the other Fearcats.

Powers And Abilities

Original Form

  • Strength: Alongside Mig and Cheetar, Benglo possesses great strength than any of the Rangers' previous foes.
  • Durability-Although not as durable as his cyborg form, Benglo was able to take a purple energy slash from Mig's staff and withstand it. This same attack reduced Tyzonn to a puddle of mercury.

    • Force Field Creation: Benglo can also use his sword to create a force field.
    • Earth Implosion: By combining his sword blaster's power with Thrax and all the other antagonists, he can create an implosion in the Earth.

Behind The Scenes

Portrayal

Notes

  • Benglo bears a slight resemblance to the Tigerzord of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, while his cyborg form resembles the Mega Tigerzord. The reason for this is because his Boukenger counterpart, Grand Beast Rei, as with each primary antagonist and each individual monster of the week was visually designed as an homage to the various robots and other mecha piloted by the protagonists of the 29 previous Super Sentai Series (except for J.A.K.Q. Dengekitai), as Boukenger was the 30th anniversary series. Gai's look was based on the Tigerzord's counterpart, Mythical Chi Beast Won Tiger of Gosei Sentai Dairanger, while his Quester/Cyborg form was based off the Mega Tigerzords counterpart, Kibadaioh.
  • Benglo is the last Fearcat to be destroyed.
  • Benglo's weapon was recycled for Korvaka's sword in the first episode of Power Rangers Ninja Steel.
    • Also, the body of Benglo's cyborg form was combined with the head of Crazar to form an audience member in the Warrior Dome.
