"Yes. I'll absorb the Rangers' tech and blast them all to atoms."
―Digitron's first words after Scrozzle told Robo-Blaze and Robo-Roxy that his strength increases with the more technology he absorbs.[src]

"Good tech makes me stronger."
―Digitron as he absorbs a personal transporter.[src]

"Data...is...invalid."
―Digitron's final words before his destruction.[src]

Digitron is an hourglass-themed Robotron in Power Rangers Beast Morphers Season 2 and the primary antagonist of the episode "Cruisin' for a Bruisin".

Character History

Digitron was created off-screen from an unknown object and was first seen in the Crystal Dimension when Scrozzle showed him off to Robo-Blaze and Robo-Roxy and gave the Robotron the mission to absorb all kinds of technology so he can be strong enough to kill the Power Rangers. Digitron traveled to Coral Harbor and appeared at a building complex where he scared off a group of civilians before absorbing an abandoned laptop computer and a personal transporter into himself. The Rangers, along with Cruise, confronted him and he summoned two squads of Tronics, forcing the Rangers to split up. The battle soon moved into a park, where Digitron briefly fought Ravi and Zoey, before they went back to help Devon and Cruise with the Tronics. While Cruise was shooting the Tronics with his new blasters, Digitron blasted him from behind, causing Cruise to drop the blasters. While the Tronics held back Devon, he assimilated Cruise, tremendously augmenting his power. Devon, Ravi, and Zoey fought him, but he used his new strength to easily beat them. Nate and Steel regrouped with them, and Devon tried to capture Digitron with Cable Strike, but the Robotron teleported away.

Back in the Crystal Dimension, Robo-Roxy remarked she was impressed by Digitron's performance. Robo-Blaze ordered Digitron to return to Earth, absorb as much tech as possible, and destroy all the Rangers. Digitron returned to Coral Harbor to absorb more tech but was confronted by the Rangers again. Although he easily overwhelmed them, the Beast-X Visors were now ready and Devon summoned his. With Ravi and Zoey providing cover fire with their Beast-X Blasters and Nate and Steel restraining Digitron, Devon was able to punch into Digitron's stomach area with his new Morph-X Key and pull Cruise out of Digitron, weakening the Robotron. The three main Rangers then activated their new Beast-X Modes, using their digitized Beast Bots to create armor that enhanced their Beast powers.

Digitron called upon Tronics but the newly empowered Rangers easily took them out. Digitron tried to destroy the Rangers with his strongest attack but they deflected it easily. He was easily overpowered by Zoey's Jackrabbit Spin Strike and taken down by Ravi's Gorilla Slam (which involves generating and then throwing a massive boulder) before Devon took him out for good with the Beast-X Cheetah Charge (a move where Devon transformed into a blazing orange energy cheetah and rammed straight through Digitron).

Personality

Digitron was a technology thief who spoke in a gruff voice. He had an insatiable appetite for new technology.

Powers and Abilities

Despite being one of the earlier monsters to appear in the second season of Power Rangers Beast Morphers, Digitron is one of the strongest and most powerful monsters that the Rangers have faced so far, being able to overpower all five of them with ease. He was so powerful it took the power of the new Beast-X Visors to take him down for good.

  • Ultra Strength: Digitron is shown to be one of the stronger monsters, as he stopped Cruise from grabbing his blasters and then throw him down, both with the use of only his right arm, making him not only one of the strongest Robotrons but possibly one of the strongest monsters in the entire franchise as he was able to nearly destroy all 5 Grid Battleforce Rangers.
    • Shockwave Punches: Digitron can create shockwaves through his punches with every blow, as shown after Devon tried to hit him with his Beast-X Saber, Digitron punched him so hard that a visible clear yellow shockwave was generated in the air right afterwards.
  • Expert Fighter: In addition to his incredible strength, Digitron is also an expert fighter, being able to avoid all five of the Beast Morpher Rangers' attacks with ease all the while being able to counter them.
  • Durability: Digitron has extremely thick skin to the point that several blasts from the Striker Morphers bounced right off of him.
  • Teleportation: Digitron can teleport away by flashing his stomach with purple energy and then disappearing in a series of energy rings of the same color.
  • Tronics Summoning: Digitron can summon an army of Tronics to aid him in battle.
  • Super Reflexes: Digitron also has very fast reactions which rival even Vargoyle's once he was enhanced by the Data Chips, as shown when he managed to quickly block a slash from Devon with just his right arm.
  • Technology Absorption: Digitron's main ability is to absorb technology in order to make himself stronger. He accomplishes this by shooting a massive purple digital beam out of his hand which turns the object into data for him to absorb.
  • Laser Beam: Digitron can fire a large red colored laser beam from his hand that was strong enough to force Cruise into dropping his new blasters.
  • Fire Pulse: Digitron can launch out a pulse of light blue colored fire from his right hand.
  • Blue Fireballs: Digitron is able to launch massive blue colored fireballs from his right hand. This is by far his most devastating attack as it took down all five Rangers with one shot, but when used for a second time, was ripped apart when it made contact with the three Rangers in their Beast-X Modes.

Arsenal

  • Arms: Digitron can use his arms as clubs in combat, but he mostly relies on his right arm to fight.
    • Arm Stretching: Digitron has the ability to stretch his arms high in the air to reach enemies from afar. 
    • Energy Deflection: Digitron is able to deflect energy blasts away from his body with his arm as seen with Ravi and Zoey's Beast-X Blasters.
  • Data Storage Unit: Digitron possesses a storage tank where his stomach would be that holds data from the technology he absorbs. The only way to break into this was for Devon's hand and his Morph-X Key to be empowered by his Beast-X Visor and then punch right into it.

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

  • Digitron is voiced by Joel Tobeck, an on again-off again voice actor for Power Rangers but a prolific TV and film actor. His voice is identical to that of Yuffo, also voiced by Tobeck.

Notes

  • Digitron is one of the strongest Robotrons in the Power Rangers Beast Morphers series, being able to overpower all five Rangers on his own, something which not even Vacuutron (who managed to beat the three core Rangers on his own) or Tubatron 2.0 (who single-handedly took out Ravi, Zoey, Steel, and Nate while they were shielding Devon) managed to accomplish.
    • Oddly, both Digitron and Tubatron 2.0 are very similar in that both are able to render pieces of Ranger technology useless (Tubatron 2.0 destroyed various pieces of equipment such as Ravi's Beast-X Saber and Digitron absorbed Cruise), and both required a brand new power-up to defeat (Red Fury Mode for Tubatron 2.0 and Beast-X Mode for Digitron).
      • Digitron is also very similar to Tooltron since both were able to destroy weapons and tried to get rid of a Beast Bot (Tooltron tried to dismantle Steel but failed and Digitron succeeded in taking Cruise out of the fight for a time).
        • However, not only is Digitron stronger than either, but his powers of technology destruction/absorption come from him naturally whereas Tooltron's ability to destroy weapons came from a blaster (whereas his Gigadrone counterpart's ability utilized the giant wrenches seen in Tooltron's final battle to fire the beams that broke the Rangers' tech) and Tubatron 2.0 was only able to destroy the weapons after being powered up by a Fury Cell.
  • Digitron is the fourth monster in the Power Rangers Beast Morphers series to have a unique form of a firepower/projectile attack, as his projectile is capable of absorbing, the first being Slicertron and both the second and third is Tubatron and his 2.0 upgrade.
  • Digitron is the first Robotron in the Power Rangers Beast Morphers series not to have a Gigadrone counterpart appear in the same episode during his debut and defeat. It appeared in the following episode instead.
    • Likewise, his Go-Busters counterpart Sunadokeiloid did not have his MegaZord counterpart (SunadokeiZord) appear until the episode after his destruction.
    • Because of this, Digitron marks the first Monster in the Power Rangers Beast Morpher series to be a primary solo Monster-of-The-Week, rather than be one of the two primary monsters.
  • In Go-Busters, the reason he was so strong was because he was originally part of a group of Metaloids/Robotrons called Messiah Metaloids, monsters derived from objects infused with data obtained from cards created from the remaining data left from the main villain, Messiah, after he was originally killed. These were the strongest monsters in Go-Busters and required the new Powered Custom mode and a new Megazord to defeat their MegaZord counterparts. In Beast Morphers, this is explained through him absorbing technology and growing more powerful.
    • This is similar to what happened with Versix, Drillion, Blammo, Megamauler, and Voltipede as well as Fangore, Dreadwolf, and Deceptron from the preceding two seasons. Both were part of special monster groups (the Advanced Youkai and Western Youkai respectively) in Ninninger but were completely separate monsters in Power Rangers Ninja Steel with no known connection aside for all working to try and steal the Power Stars (except Versix who wanted freedom from the Halloween Court).
  • Digitron is the ninth Robotron to be created off-screen, following Meltatron, Vacuutron, Tubatron 2.0, Turbotron, Shockatron, Spiketron, Infernotron, and Drilltron 2.0.
  • Digitron is the first monster in Power Rangers Beast Morphers to have more then one form of projectile/firepower based attacks, having four in total.
  • Digitron's powers and abilities are similar to those of ZED, an antagonist from the animated/anime show SWAT Kats: The Radical Squadron, who is a sentient device which made itself stronger by absorbing all tech within reach, including one of the Metallikats.
    • Coincidentally, they are both male robots.
  • In both original Beast Morphers footage and Go-Busters stock footage, the wording on Digitron's right shoulder reads "IESSIAH" instead of "MESSIAH".
    • This was most likely done to avoid having religious references in Power Rangers.
    • The Go-Busters stock footage was digitally edited to modify the "MESSIAH" label.
