|This article is about a/an set of recurring stereotypical characters in the Power Rangers franchise.|
Foot Soldiers or Enemy Grunts is the collective name for the army of henchmen that serves the main villains of a Power Ranger season. They are usually sent down to wear down the Rangers before the Monster-of-the-day attacks or create diversions while a more powerful minion carries out a phase of a plan. Often they can disguise themselves as humans for various missions. They can usually be defeated quite easily. In general, they possess extremely low intelligence and most of them are incapable of speech.
After they have been defeated in combat, the battered foot soldiers typically disappear or teleport away. In most cases, it is unclear whether this means that they are destroyed, or if they merely teleport back to their evil base to recover. There are a few exceptions to this: Z-Putties are clearly destroyed, as they are seen to break apart, whereas Tengas are clearly not destroyed, as they usually fly away after a battle. In Operation Overdrive, foot soldiers are frequently destroyed.
These are standard foot soldiers and grunts in the Power Rangers franchise.
Elite Foot Soldiers
These are foot soldiers of a higher rank. They are generally stronger than normal soldiers and are commonly sent in much smaller numbers, with usually two or three accompanying a fleet. They are normally shown to have speaking capabilities and some can be grown giant to assist an already giant monster or villain.
Giant Foot Soldiers
These are foot soldiers or grunts that can fight against the rangers' zords. While they sometimes are nothing more than giant versions of standard footsoldiers, they can also be their own species. Usually, one or two of these monsters are sent at a time, usually in place of a monster or to distract the rangers. They can also be summoned, usually in pairs, to aide an already giant monster or villain.
