"You summoned?"
―Hardtochoke's first words.[src]

"Now, nothing can stop them. They'll keep fighting until your Galactabeasts are Galactatoast."
―Hardtochoke after he destroyed the remote.[src]

"Huh?! What's going on?!"
―Hardtochoke reacting to the evil Centaurus and Stratoforce Megazords pointing their weapons at him.[src]

―Hartochoke's last words before his demise.[src]

Hardtochoke was a monster recruited by Deviot to control his captive Zords whilst on the Terra Venture, as an assistant to test their power. He serves as the secondary antagonist of the second part of the episode "The Lost Galactabeasts".


Hardtochoke was an alien monster with long claws on his wrists. After his first unsuccessful attempt to obtain the three lost Zords from the Galaxy Rangers, Deviot hired Hardtochoke and gave him a device that controls the Zords before sending him to deploy the said Zords to attack Terra Venture and test their power. Hardtochoke ordered the evil Zords destroy Terra Venture and then destroyed the device to prevent the Rangers from regaining control over them. He then enlarged himself and had the zords protect him from the Galaxy Megazord and Torozord. However the Rangers managed to help the Zords regain their past memories and they turned good again. With the Stratoforce Megazord and Centaurus Megazord back on the side of good, they attacked Hartochocke with punches and kicks before he was blasted by the Zenith Carrierzord. Afterwards, the Galaxy Megazord was able to destroy Hardtochoke with little difficulty using the Galaxy Megazord Saber. Tvicon.png TV STORY-The Lost Galactabeasts

Hardtochoke was later resurrected by Hexuba in the Lost Galaxy to exact revenge against the Galaxy Rangers (on Captain Mutiny's orders) and fought the Rangers once again on the Terra Venture. It took a combination of Leo and Maya's Quasar Launchers, Damon's Transblaster, Karone's Beta Bow, and Mike's Magna Blaster to destroy Hardtochoke. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Hexuba's Graveyard


Hardtochoke was a cunning, manipulative, and pragmatic monster who won't stop at his mission to destroy the Rangers and test the controlled Galactabeasts. He was also intelligent and calculating at his plan to attack Terra Venture with his captured Galactabeasts and nearly succeeded in his mission. Although his arrogance caused his defeat, he is still loyal to Deviot.
