Dreadwolf is first seen on the Galaxy Warriors Stage showing the audience how he turned Cosmo Royale into a werewolf and cures him, though after giving him a piece of meat, Dreadwolf turns Cosmo back to normal. He then goes to earth and encounters the Red, Yellow, Blue, Pink, White and Gold Rangers. After the Rangers morphed, Dreadwolf summons an army of Basherbots to aid him in battle, as the Red, Yellow, Blue, Pink and White Rangers battle the Basherbots, the Gold Ranger takes on Dreadwolf, but he was overpowered, when the monster fired his Full Moon Energy Blast at him, which makes him fall to the ground, Dreadwolf attempts to turn the Gold Ranger into a werewolf using his Werewolf Claws, but it misses and hits Mick in the head instead. The Gold Ranger was able to easily overpower the werewolf monster, which forces him to retreat.
He gets more claws and returns to Metro Plaza, he then sees a young man named Chaz, who he thinks that he's the Gold Ranger due to him having the Gold Ranger's normal outfit, he gets down and attempts to attack Chaz with his Werewolf Claws, though they also missed and ends up hitting Victor Vincent, but he was able to hit Chaz with the last Werewolf Claw. He then encounters all six of the Rangers after they see that Chaz has been transformed into a werewolf, much to Dreadwolf's suprise when he found out that Levi is the real Gold Ranger. He then tries to escape to get more claws with the Rangers in pursuit as Levi helps Chaz. The Rangers try to battle Dreadwolf, but his armor was too strong. Luckily the Gold Ranger comes in and becomes the new Lion Fire Gold, allowing him to overpower Dreadwolf and weaken his armor. Dreadwolf tries to fight back with his Full Moon Energy Blast, but the Gold Ranger was easy able to deflect them, and with the Double Flame Strike, Dreadwolf was destroyed. Dreadwolf is then gigantified and the Rangers summons their Zords to form the Ninja Ultrazord to take him on. Draedwolf fires energy waves, but the Ultrazord fires its Ninja Ultra Strike to deflect them and hit Dreadwolf. With the Ninja Ultrazord Blast final attack, Dreadwolf is destroyed for good.
He is a very rough monster who will show no mercy. However, he is also very clever as he analyzes his enemies before choosing who to turn into a werewolf. He remembers what they look like. He is very boastful and thinks highly of himself, which ultimately led to his defeat.
