"We've finally found it. Cogs. Keep digging. Zedd was a fool to leave this buried here. His loss, our gain."
―General Venjix's first words when arriving with the other Generals to oversee the uncovering of Serpentera.[src]

"Forgive me, Mondo! I have failed you and the Empire!"
―General Venjix's final words before his demise.[src]

General Venjix was the leader of the Machine Empire Remnants who acts as the main antagonist of the 10th anniversary episode "Forever Red".

History[]

Despite Zordon's colossal wave of good energy wiping out and purifying all evil in the universe, including the Machine Empire, General Venjix somehow managed to survive along with four other generals and several Cogs. Learning of King Mondo's destruction, Venjix swore revenge on those who destroyed him.

Jason vs

The Original Red Ranger vs. Venjix

Deciding to search for Lord Zedd's personal Zord Serpentera, Venjix took his troops to Earth's moon to dig up the weapon to use it in their plan of revenge on the Rangers. However, Andros, the Red Space Ranger, had been tracking the Machine Empire Remnants for years, and gathered nine other Red Rangers, who then stormed the base and fought off the Cogs. Unfortunately, during the time it took for the heroes to arrive, Venjix had powered Serpentera with a Neo Plutonium reactor.

End of General Venjix

The End of General Venjix.

When he and the other generals attempted to board Serpentera, they were stopped by Cole Evans and the other Red Rangers. Venjix faced off against the original Red Ranger, Jason Lee Scott, and Cole, who was the newest Red Ranger at that time. The veteran and rookie Red Rangers were able to overpower Venjix while the other Red Rangers defeated the other generals, but Venjix was able to escape and board Serpentera. He attempted to use it to destroy Earth, but before he could leave the moon, Cole Evans used his Wild Force Rider to destroy Serpentera. Venjix was destroyed, along with Serpentera, thus putting an end to the Machine Empire and ending any threat it posed to the universe for good.

Personality[]

Venjix has shown to be loyal to his empire and King Mondo, even having a statue of the latter and angered by his leaders's defeat at the Z-Wave and by having to live in hiding, Venjix decided to get revenge by destroying the Earth with Serpentera, which was the personal Zord of his empire's enemy Lord Zedd, whom Venjix called a fool.

Powers and Abilities[]

Powers[]

  • Lightning Blasts: Venjix can fire blue lightning from his left hand, powerful enough to send Cole flying across the battlefield.
  • Energy Lasers: General Venjix can fire dark purple energy lasers from his right hand.

Abilities[]

  • Strength: Venjix is amongst the strongest members of the Machine Empire, leading its last remnants and nearly overwhelming Jason and Cole. When fighting Cole alone, a single mid-air kick stopped him from slashing Venjix and a punch knocked him backwards onto his knees.
  • Durability: Venjix took an energized slash to the shoulder by Cole's Crystal Saber that had no effect other than making him fall to his knees. Being shot by Leo's Jet Jammer only made him and the other Generals cringe.
  • Super Jump: Venjix can jump as high as Cole could in a single bound despite not being empowered by an animal.
  • Expert Fighter: Venjix was able to easily hold off both Jason and Cole for a while.
  • Expert Zord Pilot: Venjix was skilled enough to pilot Serpentera all by himself whereas it originally took both Goldar and Lord Zedd to properly pilot it.

Weaknesses[]

to be added

Arsenal[]

  • Fists: Unlike all his other generals, Venjix only had his bare hands to fight but was able to overpower Cole with them.
    • Claws: Venjix seems to have claws on the back of either hand but never actually uses them in his attacks.
  • Serpentera: Zedd's stolen War Zord that he tried to destroy Earth with, but it was destroyed and took him with it.

Behind the Scenes[]

Portrayal[]

Design[]

Etymology[]

  • His name likely came from the word "vengeance", referencing the fact he was trying to get revenge for the Machine Empire's destruction.

Notes[]

  • In Amit Bhaumik's Go-Busters adaptation called Power Rangers Cyber Corps, it would've revealed that this Venjix and the Venjix Virus were one and the same. As he turned himself into a bodiless data after Serpentera was destroyed and transmitted himself into a satellite and was transferred to Eternity City (which was on the planet Mirioni) and managed to take control of all the computers on the planet. Venjix was originally supposed to be teleported into the Morphing Grid by the Energrid Research Institute, presumably to be destroyed. However, Venjix failed to reach his destination and was accidentally sent to a universe called Dimension X where he would end up in the computers of a government facility called Alphabet Soup, on the night that Doctor K thought she unleashed a powerful, dangerous, sadistic and genocidal computer virus onto her world.
