Rantipede's Rinshi form.

Rantipede was a Rinshi, master of Centipede fight style and first of Five Fingers of Poison to fight the Jungle Fury Rangers. He served as the main antagonist of the episode "A Taste of Poison".

Biography

Rantipede and the other four Fingers of Poison were called up by Camille, to destroy the Rangers. Rantipede was the master of the Centipede fighting style, which emphasises rapid punching. He always wore a brown paper sack with an X on it, on his head, as well as similar paper coverings on his arms and legs. He had the ability to attack his opponents with one hundred punches. After first battle with the Rangers, Rantipede decided to fight them on his own and challenged Casey for a duel. But Lily came instead of Casey. Lily, the Yellow Ranger, used her speed and defeated Rantipede in the duel. When the other Rangers came, Rantipede showed his true face, made of a Centipede's coiled tail and after absorbing enough fear he enlarged himself. During the battle with Jungle Pride Megazord, Rantipede uncoiled his tail from his head and wrapped it around the Megazord. But the Megazord twisted around and freed itself. Rantipede was finally destroyed by Megazord's Savage Spin Attack.

Later, Rantipede was revived by Naja along with Gakko to help him overthrow Dai Shi. However he was quickly destroyed by Dai Shi during the battle.

In the final battle Rantipede was revived by Dai Shi, but was finally destroyed by RJ.

Personality

Rantipede is highly skilled, strong and cunning. He is also very arrogant, confident and proud as he thought he can defeat the Rangers. But he is also very loyal to Dai Shi and was shown to be good friends with the other Fingers of Poison.
