The Gruesome Grunts were a mob of alien criminals who are wanted by the Halloween Intergalactic Court for their various crimes and the main villains of Monster Mix Up. They ambush the Super Ninja Steel Rangers and switch bodies with them. Unlike other villains in the series, they are not associated with Madame Odius or Galaxy Warriors, and in fact, declared that they would become even more famous than Odius by defeating the Power Rangers.
Versix and the others Gruesome Grunts ambushes the Rangers and switch bodies with them. The Mummy Guards arrive and take them all to the Halloween Intergalactic Court, except Brody (in Ackshun's body), Sarah (in Plasmora's body) and Versix who goes after them. After Mick Kanic posed as Versix to get a confession of the body-swapping plot, the Gruesome Grunts try to escape, which Verisx succeeds at doing, but the Court Witch apprehends the others with a freezing spell and the Pumpkin Judges ordered her to undo Versix's body-swapping spell. She does so and the Gruesome Grunts are destroyed by the Pumpkin Judges for their heinous crimes while the Rangers go after Versix.
He fought off the Rangers and survives all attempts to defeat him, including the Lion Fire Flame Strike and the Lion Fire Double Super Strike with the Superstar Blade, He then enlarges himself so the Rangers summon the Ninja Steel Ultrazord.

The Rangers realised that he would break up any Megazord they formed so they called upon the Rumble Tusk, Astro, and Sub Surfer auxillary Zords. He tried to fight back but was overwhelmed by the combined might of the Zords and was destroyed by the Super Zord Slashes Final Attack (performed by the components of the Ninja Steel and Bull Rider Megazords). In his final seconds, he cursed not having gone trick or treating and then detonated, marking the end of the Gruesome Grunts,
