|―Motodrone explaning his plan to the Crimson Ranger.[src]|
Motodrone was a mutant mechanical entity and was one of the main villains of Power Rangers Ninja Storm.
Unlike the other villains in Ninja Storm, there have technically been two Motodrones.
The original Motodrone was once Perry, a kind and friendly motorcycle expert who was conducting an experiment to create a new generation of motorcycle. Unfortunately, he was caught in the accident that changed him into Motodrone. Motodrone then kidnapped Hunter and tried to use his Crimson powers for his motorcycle, but his plans were foiled by the Ninja Rangers. The Crimson Ranger destroyed Motodrone and freed Perry with his newly acquired Ninja Glider Cycle. Motodrone's remains were salvaged by Zurgane and brought back to Lothor's ship for repairs.
After the re-emergence of ancient villain Shimazu, Motodrone was rebuilt and revived by transferring the soul of a Kelzak into his reassembled pieces. Motodrone then fought the Power Rangers under Lothor's command. Motodrone has shown more interest in destroying Hunter than the other Rangers, leading him and Hunter to be archenemies.
Shortly before the final battle, Lothor requested him to spy on Vexacus, due to his distrust of him. He was later destroyed by Vexacus when he threatened to disclose Vexacus' treacherous agenda to Lothor. It was later revealed that had been part of Lothor's plan from the beginning.
In the two-part series finale, he came back once more from the Abyss of Evil, but was quickly destroyed one final time by Shane in his Tri-Battlized Flight Mode. Like the other generals, it was not revealed if Motodrone was completely destroyed, since he was only seen falling down after being blasted. The fact he didn't make a resurgence in the future suggests he was however.
In an alternate dimension, its version of Motodrone worked for Mayor Lothor. Motodrone is among those who helped Mayor Lothor fight the Evil Ninja Rangers.
Much like most villains in Ninja Storm, Motodrone is a cold and ruthless entity that loves to wreak havoc on the city, though he does have some points of humor added to him. He was also loyal to Lothor and Zurgane.

Behind the Scenes

to be added
- Motodrone (with his cloak on) bears a resemblance to Lord Agony, the main antagonist of Locks Quest, a video game made for the DS, which was made six years later.
- Just like Shimazu and Vexacus, Motodrone was never a member of Lothor's army since the beginning. While Manmaruba was a member of Jakanja from the beginning, he also had a smaller insect form which grows into an adult form (whose costume was used for Motodrone).
- Also, Manmaruba's final form is used for the monster Eyezak instead of being Motodrone's final form.
