The Craterites are an army of robotic foot solders that serves as the primary antagonists of the episode "The Craterite Invasion".
These hologram fighting machines were a part of the Astro Megaship Training Simulation Software to help the Rangers train, while the Blue and Yellow Rangers were training, lightning from a storm hit the Astro Megaship and they were set free. They went to Earth and disguised themselves as people, the Rangers went down to find them, meanwhile a young boy name Patrick saw a Craterite at next door and many others, and tried to warn the Officer Hemming, but he saw that he too was a Craterite through a police car mirror which cause him to run in fear, the Rangers still had no clue were they are, until they went to a construction site and the Yellow Ranger notices two of the same construction worker, they battled the Craterites in the construction site and at a beach, but more of them still keeped coming, while this was happening, a Craterite with a black colored head, gloves and boots (The Craterite Leader) was ordering them to go after the Power Rangers. The Rangers helped Patrick and saw Officer Hemming, but they ran after they saw it was a Craterite (who after seeing them, alerts the other Craterite), after bringing Patrick back to his mother, both the Red and Pink Rangers tried to battle the Crateries themselves in a forest, but they were out match, especially when the Craterite Leader came along and attack the Rangers with his shear power, he was about to make the final strike on the Rangers, but luckily the Black, Blue and Yellow Rangers came to the rescue and the Red Ranger fired the Spiral Saber at both the Craterites and their leader, but they weren't finish yet, all of the Craterites gathered around the leader and combined to form a large Craterite-like monster called The Craterite Conglomerate. The Rangers form the Astro Megazord to battle this massive behemoth, every time they made a hole in this monster, it fills in back up, but they managed to destroy the Craterite Conglomerate and send the Craterites back to the Simudeck by firing the Astro Megazord Blaster at the leader located on it's chest.
The Craterite Conglomerate was among the monsters seen in the Shadow World.
