Grunchor is a monster under Captain Mutiny's control, sent as a Trojan horse to the space colony Terra Venture.

History

Grunchor (crate).jpg

Under the pretense of peace, Captain Mutiny offered to help the colonists, alluding to have a machine that would allow Terra Venture to escape the Lost Galaxy. Despite his reservations, Commander Stanton agree to the help and sent Mike and several GSA soldiers to retrieve the device. On Mutiny's planet, the Swabbies loaded a giant crate wrapped in chains onto the Heliship and Mutiny handed Mike a small key, saying everything they needed was inside the crate. Unaware that Mike had been followed by the Galaxy Rangers, Mutiny unknowingly revealed that the contents inside the crate would enslave the colonists.

As Leo and the others prepared to depart, one of the slaves noticed them on the hill above and begged for help, giving their position away to Mutiny and Barbarax. Mutiny ordered Barbarax to send Rocketron after them in order to keep their plans from being revealed to the colonists. While the Rangers defeated Rocketron, they arrived too late to stop Stanton from opening the crate and releasing Grunchor, who attacked the moment he was released from imprisonment and burrowed under their streets.

Barbarax was confident that Grunchor would not be defeated by the Rangers, citing that he was "too big to beat", despite Mutiny's concerns. The monster continued to burrow underneath the streets of the colony and terrorize its citizens until he was summoned from underground by Barbarax. The Rangers' first assault on the monster proved fruitless, their combined powers causing him to mutate and grow into a stronger form. Calling on the Megazords, the Rangers and the Magna Defender continued the battle from there.

As the Defender Torozord restrained Grunchor, the Galaxy Megazord slashed with its saber, but the blow was useless against the giant monster. Mutiny's Castle docked on Grunchor's head and the Rangers continued to be overwhelmed by the monster's strength. Defender Torozord was defeated in one blow, while the Stratoforce and Centaurus were damaged protecting the Galaxy Megazord from an energy blast, despite the use of Leo's fire abilities. Finally, the Rangers decided to pool their strength into Leo's fire ability since Deviot had told them that Grunchor's only weakness was fire. With the power of the other Rangers and the Centaurus and Stratoforce Megazords strengthening him, Leo unleashed his Galaxy Fire Power upon Grunchor, ultimately disintegrating him.

Forms

Grunchor

Powers and Abilities

Powers

  • Super Strength: Grunchor, even in his weaker state, was immensely powerful.
  • Optic Beams: Grunchor can project yellow energy beams from his eyes.
  • Self Growth and Transformation: Grunchor grew into his second form after being blasted by Leo's Fire Power. Whether he could do this naturally or whether the fire made him do that is unclear.

Abilities

  • Durability: Although not as durable as his evolved form, Grunchor was still an incredibly durable monster. Even when blasted by Leo's Fire Power, and in spite of that being his greatest weakness, it did not destroy him and seemed to make him grow.
  • Burrowing: Grunchor can burrow underground.
  • Acid Spit: Grunchor can spew out a brown-purple stream of acid from his mouth that can dissolve anything it hits.

Weaknesses

  • Vulnerability to Fire: In both of his forms, Grunchor can be harmed by fire-based attacks, as Leo's combined Galaxy Fire Power attack was strong enough to destroy him.

Arsenal

  • Claws: Although Grunchor lacked any kind of weapon, he has massive clawed hands to use against his enemies.

Grunchor's evolved form

Powers and Abilities

Powers

  • Super Strength: Grunchor, in terms of physical strength, is now the strongest monster in the entire Lost Galaxy season, proving stronger than Destruxo and the Shark Brothers. A single swipe of his claw was strong enough to knock back the Condor Galactabeast Missile Mode's finisher.
  • Electrocution: Grunchor can electrocute his opponents with blue lightning released from his body.
  • Size Enhancement: When Captain Mutiny's flying castle latched on to him, Grunchor was able to increase his size.

Abilities

  • Durability: In his evolved state, Grunchor has become virtually indestructible. Even once he was hit by the Galaxy Fire Power, it took 19 straight seconds to begin destroying it. It took the combined powers of Leo, the other Rangers, and the Stratoforce and Centaurus Megazords to finally take him down for good.

Weaknesses

  • Vulnerability to Fire: In both of his forms, Grunchor can be harmed by fire-based attacks, as Leo's combined Galaxy Fire Power attack was strong enough to destroy him.

Arsenal

  • Claws: Grunchor retains his massive clawed hands for combat but this time they have additional powers.
    • Size Changing: When Captain Mutiny's flying castle latched on to him, Grunchor was able to make the size of his claws bigger.
    • Finger Blast: Grunchor can fire blue energy blasts from his fingertips. A single volley wiped out the Centaurus and Stratoforce Megazords.
    • Energy Deflection: Grunchor can deflect energy attacks with the swipe of his claws.
  • Jaws: In this form, Grunchor can use his enormous jaws to chomp on his opponents with great force.
    • Mouth Fireballs: Grunchor can fire massive red and yellow fireballs from his mouth.
    • Suction Breath: Grunchor was able to suck boulders into his large mouth when he opens it.
      • Strength Enhancement: Grunchor can increase his strength the more he sucks up objects into his mouth.
