Inflatron is an ear and balloon-themed monster who serves as the primary antagonist of the episode "Double-Edged Blake".
Inflatron was summoned by Zurgane to destroy Blue Bay Harbor with Shimazu. The Power Rangers (with Blake being absent to train a young woman name Leanne) came in and try to battle Inflatron and Shimazu, but they were quickly outmatched when Inflatron immobilized them with his attacks. The Navy Ranger came to the rescue and battled him with the new Thunder Blade, Shimazu and Inflatron quickly retreated after a few hits, Blake had a showdown with Inflatron at the beach and used the Thunder Blade, but no matter how much he tried, the Navy Ranger could not even make a scratch on this balloon monster. Inflatron was about to make the final strike until the Navy Ranger split the Thunder Blade in two and used one half of the Blade to pop a hole in Inflatron's chest to weaken him, and the other half to ultimately destroy him with the Power of Thunder. Inflatron grew large thanks to the Scroll of Empowerment and the Wind Rangers used the Thunderstorm Megazord to fight him, Inflatron was too strong for the Thunderstorm Megazord alone, so the Green Ranger summons the Mammothzord to form the Thunderstorm Ultrazord to finally take out Inflatron for good.
This monster was full of hot air and loves to mock his victims.

Behind the Scenes
- Inflatron is the final monster to be fought by the Thunderstorm Ultrazord.
- While Inflatron isn't the final monster to be faced by the Rangers, he is the final original monster to appear in Power Rangers Ninja Storm, as the monster that gets fought later on, Eyezak, is simply a renamed version of Motodrone's Super Sentai counterpart's upgrade, and the monster after that, Condortron, was a robotic monster built by Vexacus.
- He is the only monster to be beaten by the Thunder Blade.
