The Maniac Mechanic was a mechanic monster who served as the main antagonist of the episode "The Turn of the Wretched Wrench."

History

Unlike most monsters, the Snow Monster has no initial affiliation with Divatox's Crew and is an actual mechanic for hire who claims that he can "build or fix anything." The Maniac Mechanic first appears once Elgar discovers his name in a phone book after he breaks the Subcraft 's periscope. He quickly repairs the periscope but is hired to create a battle wagon for Divatox although he needs his Wretched Wrench first. Elgar attacks Ashley with some Piranhatrons and steals some supplies before retreating. The next day, he has all of the parts he needs but requires a workspace so Divatox chooses the car shop in Angel Grove High School. He teleports to Earth and disguises himself as Manny and then steals her new wrench and makes into his Wretched Wrench. Sometime between then and the end of period 6, he completes a lot of the Battle Wagon whilst the Piranhatrons keep Ashley and Carlos busy when they come to work on her car whilst he finishes the Wagon.

When the thugs are beaten, he reverts back to his true form and they morph although that gives him enough time to speed off in the Wagon with a Chromite driving and him playing defence. Ashley gives chase in her Turbo Cart but the Mechanic uses his Wretched Wrench to first spray her with smoke and then to blast her with cannons. Ultimately, the Maniac uses the Wretched Wrench to remove the tires of her Cart and mocks her but flees when Lightning Cruiser and Storm Blaster show up. LC races them and he uses the wrench to create a buzz saw launcher which takes out the engine of Storm Blaster with Justin, Ashley and Carlos on it. Lightning Cruiser takes flight but is shot down by an RPG and, although they get the vehicle running quickly, are chased around the quarry before another blast throws them out and disables the Legendary Vehicle. The Maniac Mechanic overwhelms the other Rangers until Ashley appears on the repaired Storm Blaster and shoots him with the affixed Turbine Laser before jumping onto the Wagon. She starts losing hold of the Wretched Wrench but turns the odds by hitting him with a Star Charger and back flipping off of the vehicle. It draws close but she is able to take down the Maniac Mechanic by destroying the Battle Wagon using the Auto Blast Defender at which point Ashley's wrench is returned to normal. The torpedoes are then fired to make the Maniac giant and Ashley summons the Rescuezords. The monster tries to use wrenches on the Rescue Megazord but has them used against him instead by turning his ears and getting punched down. The Rangers summons the Artillery Cannons which does not scare the monster but it's finishing barrage finishes him off.
