"That's impossible! (...) I want my powers back! Give them to me, Rangers!"
―Destruxo reacting to the Lights of Orion Galaxy Rangers and his final words before his destruction.[src]

Destruxo is a lobster/samurai themed monster under the orders of Scorpius' second general, Treacheron, sent to the Terra Venture to obtain the Lights of Orion. He uses his staff and a enchanted compass to locate the power of the Lights hidden in Terra Venture. He is the main antagonist of the final two episodes of the Lights of Orion arc

History

In search of the Lights of Orion, Treacheron sent Destruxo to capture the Lights, believed to be in the soils of Terra Venture. Destruxo had an army of Stingwingers activate a device that generated an invisible force field over a part of Terra Venture's central city dome, and unknowingly trapped Maya and Kendrix Morgan inside with the rest of the populace. The two refused to divulge how they managed to get inside the field and attacked the monster, only to be beaten when the lack of fresh air became apparent. The Magna Defender's failed attempts to destroy the shield with the Torozord, followed by a combined attack from both Maya and Kendrix, allowed Maya time to destroy the force field generator.

Finally the Lights of Orion emerged from Terra Venture's soil, and retreated into deep space. The Lights later returned to Terra Venture, where Destruxo captured them and infused himself with their power. He managed to beat all five Galaxy Rangers with little trouble, injuring them to the point where they demorphed after a devastating attack from his sword. Destruxo's newfound power was short-lived, however, as the beaded-snake necklace, gifted to him by Impostra disguised as Treacheron, weakened him to some degree.

Impostra, declaring her victory, prepared to capture the Lights inside the very urn she gave Destruxo. However, her plans were thwarted by the arrival of the Magna Defender, forcing her to retreat. The Magna Defender blasted Destruxo with the Magna Blaster, destroying the union between him and the Lights. The Lights of Orion then chose the Galaxy Rangers over the Defender (who would have used them only to destroy Scorpius), and the Rangers destroyed Destruxo in one blow with their "Power Up Mode" fireball attack.

Destruxo was later revived by Hexuba in The Lost Galaxy, there he fought the Rangers beneath the Half-pipe Bridge. A combination of sword slashes from Leo, Karone, and Maya were enough to kill Destruxo a second time.

Personality

As one of Treacheron's warriors, and by extension of Scorpious' soliders, Destruxo takes great pride in serving evil causes, viewing doing so to be an honor. He is also loyal to Treacheron, not willing to fail him. Like most, if not all of the Galaxy Rangers' enemies, Destruxo thinks highly of himself, and views himself to be superior to the Rangers. He often belittles and insults the Rangers during their battles, and finds great enjoyment in taking part in their destruction.

Destruxo is also shown to rather temperamental. He expresses his fury whenever he finds something amiss in his plans or if halted in any way.

When Destruxo acquires the power of the Light of Orion, he believes himself to be invincible and goes on a rampage to destroy everything in his path to test his newfound powers.

Forms

Powers and Abilities

Destruxo is Treacheron's strongest monster, and remains one of the strongest monsters in the franchise. able to outmatch all five of the Galaxy Rangers in their battles.

Powers

  • Energy Blasts: Destruxo can gesture his hand to his mouth and fire energy blasts from his palm. The nature of it is unknown as we cut from the gesture to the ground exploding but it failed to stop them.
  • Oxygen Independence: Judging by how Destruxo was unaffected by the lack of air beneath the forcefield, he clearly doesn't need to breathe.
  • Lightning Teleportation: Destruxo is able to teleport in a flash of red and blue lightning.

Abilities

  • Strength: Destruxo is Treacheron's most powerful monster and as such, has ridiculous strength. He was able to catch both Maya and Kendrix's charged up Quasar Sabers in his hands without being fazed. A single slash from his sword easily took down Maya and wounded her enough that she and Kendrix were forced to retreat.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: Perhaps Destruxo's greatest ability. He has extremely thick lobster skin that resembles heavy samurai armor that renders him immune to all but one attack. He is able to take a direct hit from the energy shots of the Galaxy Rangers' Quasar Launchers, and still stand more irritated than anything else. When Kendrix and Maya used their Beta Bows on him, he deflected most and the bolts that did hit him did no damage. A nasty stab to his shoulder from Kendrix knocked him down but did no more. The only way to kill him was using the fireball attack from the Lights of Orion.
  • Master Combatant: Destruxo is arguably the best fighter all season who isn't a main antagonist, being able to overpower all five Rangers and nearly kill Kendrix and Maya.
  • Stingwingers Language Understanding: Destruxo can understand what the Stingwingers are saying.
  • Swordsmanship: Destruxo is a sword fighter of remarkable skill. In his fights with the Rangers, Destruxo is able to down them with quick slashes of his sword.

Weaknesses

Arsenal

  • Spear: When he first went to Terra Venture, Destruxo had a spear to aid him in locating the Lights of Orion.
    • Power Tracker: By stabbing the pointed end into the ground, Destruxo could supposedly draw out the Lights.
  • Locator: Destruxo used a locating device to help him find the Lights of Orion.
  • Force Field Device: Destruxo used a glass device that can create an invisible force field around Terra Venture.
  • Samurai Sword: Destruxo wields a samurai sword in combat.
    • Energy Slash: Destruxo can charge up his sword with blue energy and swing with enough force to release dark red, indigo, and purple energy slashes that could bring down the Rangers. Prior to gaining his power up, this was his strongest attack as it easily took out Maya and Kendrix and during its 2nd use, sent them flying back some distance into the forcefield.
    • Energy Deflection: When Maya and Kendrix fired their Beta Bows at him, he deflected all but two shots with his sword.
  • Jar: Destruxo had a massive brown jar which he used to capture the Lights of Orion.
  • Lights of Orion: Having captured the Lights of Orion, Destruxo used their combined powers to take on a more stronger form. They were stolen by Impostra but were released after she was shot by the Magna Defender and gave itself to the Rangers.

Abilities

  • Strength: Destruxo is, if it's even possible, even more powerful than he was in his previous form.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: Although not shown as frequently as before, his invulnerability was increased to the point wherever a powered shot from the Ranger's Quasar Launchers barely fazed him. These were later strong enough to critically wound the Keonta Spell-enhanced Deviot.
  • Master Combatant: Destruxo retains his abilities in combat, which are now enhanced if anything.

Weaknesses

to be added

Arsenal

  • Samurai Sword: Destruxo retains his sword from his previous form to use in combat. He does not use his spear.
    • Flamethrower: Destruxo can charge up his sword with red energy and fire a massive stream of red or orange fire from it that are strong enough to set the forest on fire.
  • Lobster Claw: After empowering himself with the Lights of Orion, Destruxo gains a lobster-like claw on his left arm.

Notes

  • Given his red body, his high-pitched and squeaky voice, his status of being nigh-indestructible (for a time), and his obsession with stealing an important object, it seems the inspiration for the American personality of Destruxo was the Whammy from the 1980s game show Press Your Luck.
  • Destruxo is the first out of only two monsters in Power Rangers Lost Galaxy that was able to call upon the Lights of Orion and use their power. The second was Chameliac, whose Lights of Orion was actually just a copy of the Rangers' own, but both monsters still had their own Power-Up Mode.
  • Despite his scheme, which was similar to the one used with Quakemaker, Destruxo was successfully able to extract The Lights of Orion, due to being more powerful.
