Radster is a monster in Power Rangers Lost Galaxy, who is based on both a scorpion and rock 'n' roll musician Elvis Presley. He was the main antagonist of the episode "Race To The Rescue."

Biography

Radster was hired by Scorpius to try and salvage the Galactabeasts after the collosal failure of Brunt to stop the Galaxy Rangers from getting them. He arrived with some Stingwingers and took down the Rangers but Maya and Kai arrived and knocked him down. Although he put up a good fight, Radster was eventually forced to retreat in terror when the Rangers released the Galactabeasts. He returned with Furio to Terra Venture, fighting off Commander Stanton's squad of GSA soldiers who put up a minor resistance against the two monsters before the Power Rangers arrived which got Furio to retreat. Radster encountered the Power Rangers. Radster used his long and sharp claws in battle. But he was defeated by the Fire Strike of Leo's Quasar Saber. However, Radster drank a special green mixture and grew. In giant size he seemed unstoppable, but the Rangers summoned Galactabeasts and battled him. He was destroyed by the fire from the mouth of the Lion Galactabeast, who was handled by Leo. Race to the Rescue

In the flashback sequence in "The Sunflower Search", Radster is shown among the monsters present during Scorpius' attack on the Magna Defender's planet 3,000 years ago.

Personality

Radster was boastful and arrogant individual, who took pride in his mission to capture Galactabeasts and then to attack Terra Venture. However, despite being a villain, Radster was highly funny and comedic and was proud of his hair, which made him look like Elvis Presley.

Powers And abilities

  • Strength: Although he is only the first monster of Lost Galaxy, Radster was incredibly strong.
  • Durability: Although he is the first monster, Radster has thick lobster like skin that can absorb a lot of punishment such as how a double slash across his middle by Maya only made him stumble cringe and, when attacking Terra Venture and after being ambushed by the GSA, he was able to shrug off their riffle blasts.
  • Teleportation: Radster can teleport to any location in a bright white implosion-like effect flash. This went as far as teleporting from the Scorpion Stinger to the planet where the Galactabeasts were being held.
  • Expert Spearman: Radster is extremely efficient with his spear, to the point of being able to hold his own battling against Maya.
  • Expert Hand to Hand Combatant: Despite beiong such a weak monster, Radster is skilled enough to easily duke it out with the Rangers and stand up to them in a hand to hand battle.

Arsenal

  • Lobster Claw: Even without his weapons, Radster has a lobster claw which can block attacks and slash his enemies.
  • Spear: When confronting the Rangers on the planet where the Galactabeasts were being held, Radster carried a large spear. He lacked this spear when he attacked Terra Venture so its fate is unknown.
    • Unknown Attack: Radster can fire some kind of attack from his spear. This is presumbly his strongest attack as he was going to use to destroy Leo, Maya and Damon but the attack itself went unseen since it was interupted by Kai and Kendrix before he could perform it.
  • Pistol: When he and Furio attacked Terra Venture, Radster wielded a pistol for long range attacks which can shoot blue beams that were easily able to destroy buildings and even hold back the Lion Galactabeasts' flame breath for a brief moment.

Behind The Scenes

Portrayal

Note

  • The character's biggest personality trait is vanity and speaking like an Elvis Presley imitator.
  • Radster's boots were later recycled as a component for the Mut-Org Kired.
  • Radster is the first monster who was allowed to use a pistol with all other monsters either not being adapted (such as Bara Police or Ushioni whose costume only appeared in a cameo) or having only US footage used of them (Villamax from later in Lost Galaxy).
