Clawbster had been terrorising the city of Briarwood for a while, by turning people into stone statues. The monster first appeared at the beginning of the episode when he ambushed a random man in the city and petrified him before leaving. He worked directly for Necrolai whose plot was for Clawbster to use his powers of petrification to make Briarwood "into nothing more than a statuary." After Koragg pointed out how inefficient that was, Morticon allowed Necrolai's scheme to continue but had Kragg and an army of Styxoids on standby to attack if the scheme went belly up. He and Necrolai then appeared just outside the forest and Nick, Xander, Vida and Chip arrived to fight them. The Rangers fought the creature, but were no match for the villains, with even Nick's Magi Staff Striker bouncing off of the monster's thick hide at which point both Clawbster and Necrolai escaped to the city. Once in the city, Clawbster began turning more people into stone, including Madison. The other Rangers showed up, but again, the monster and Necrolai retreated. When Clawbster returned to the city once more, Xander, Chip and Vida went out to fight it, with Nick being busy fighting Koragg and his army of Styxoids. Although they were again outmatched, Nick was able to show up on his Mystic Speeder, and by using the "Reflectus - Torgo" spell, he managed to reflect Clawbster's Stone Spell back at him. Once the monster himself was turned to stone, Nick used his Phoenix Power to shatter the creature, thus returning everyone (including Madison) back to normal. Koragg then revived and enlarged Clawbster so the Rangers morphed into their Mystic Titan Forms, and then formed the Titan Megazord for the first time. Together, the Rangers easily overpowered the monster with the Tian Saber and then used the Mystic Spell Seal attack to destroy Clawbster.
Clawbster's spirit was later summoned by Imperious and fused with the souls of other monsters that Leanbow had defeated to create the strongest monster known as the Chimera. Clawbster's feet were part of the Chimera except for the fact that it had two toes instead of three.
Clawbster is a wicked, sinister, villainous, devious, manipulative, malevolent, destructive, genocidal, cold and ruthless monster that will do anything in his power to turn the people in Briarwood into stone. He is also very sadistic and enjoys turning people into a stone. He is also extremely arrogant, stubborn and confident, and will never stop at nothing to destroy Briarwood and the Rangers. He is also a coward. It is shown when he screamed in pain, when Nick defeated him at first time. Despite all of this however, he can be very naive, bold, but he can be a little brave, as he does not show any fear when the Titan Megazord first appears and was ready to fight him. He is also very loyal to Morticon and Necrolai.
Powers And Abilities
- Superhuman Strength: Despite Clawbster's appearance and being one of the earlier monsters, he possesses extraordinary strength, being able to pick up the Red Ranger and being throw him in great heights with ease.
- Durability: Clawbster has thick, scale like armour skin and can withstand severe punishment, most notably having the Magic Staff Striker bounce off of his skin and being blasted fully on by the Mystic Speeder's lasers and not getting a scratch on him.
- Agility-Clawbster may be a bulky looking monster but he was kicked across the battlefield by Xander during his final battle and was able to land on his feet.
- Petrifying Spell: From his mouth, Clawbster can fire a pink-ish, purple energy laser that can turn anyone into stone (including himself). Because the Rangers and Udonna's magic isn't powerful enough, the victims will only return to normal if he is destroyed.
- Claws: True to his name, Clawbster has large dragon/pincer-like claws for combat.
- Energy Lasers: From his claws, Clawbster can fire red colored energy lasers in rapid succession which were srong enough to take down the four Rangers present during the forest battle.
- Fireball: By combing his claws together, Clabster can launch out a massive orange fireball.
