Grid Battleforce Blue Ranger
|"Sorry. Not really the hugging type."
|―Ravi Shaw after Smash tries to hug him
Ravi Shaw is the Blue Ranger of the Grid Battleforce Rangers and the team's second-in-command.
Ravi is a cadet of Grid Battleforce and the son of Commander Shaw. He was in a romantic relationship with Roxy, but they broke up due to rules stating Rangers cannot date other Rangers. Ravi was the only one of the original Ranger candidates to not be corrupted by Evox when the latter attacked and made evil counterparts of the other two candidates to serve as his Rangers and avatars. Devon Daniels, the mayor's son, was able to cut off the supply before Evox could get to him. Later, to battle the evil avatars of the other cadets Roxy and Blaze, the system's creator, Nate Silva, forcibly initialized his morph, and they were able to hold back the evil avatars before using the Transporters to transport the evil avatars to another dimension. TV STORY-Beasts Unleashed
The next day, outside of Nate’s lab, Commander Shaw greets them and tells them it’s time to meet their tactical companions. Coming into the lab, Nate introduces his latest creations, the Beast Bots. Nate prefers to call them this because they are infused with animal DNA. Zoey, in shock, asks Nate that he built the Beast Bots. Nate, in return, activates a jackrabbit Beast Bot, who introduces himself as Jax, whose objective is to make sure Zoey is fast and efficient. Zoey thanks Nate and tells Jax that he's cute, which he hates being called cute. Zoey apologizes to Jax for saying that. Nate then turns on a gorilla Beast Bot, introducing himself to Ravi as Smash. Smash tries to get a hug from Ravi, but Ravi tells the Beast Bot that he’s not the hugging type, which depresses the Beast Bot because he likes hugs. Later in the same day, the Rangers were sent to deal with Scrozzle and Blaze at the power plant where they had created their first Robotron. Scrozzle fled and Blaze summoned Tronics before he escapes with a good amount of Morph-X. Ravi became heated when fighting Cycletron solo, and because his Gorilla DNA was semi corrupted by Evox, he went berserk and lost control of himself and started to attack Zoey. Afterwards, Devon destroyed Cycletron with a blast of his Beast-X Blaster. He soon realised what he had done and was sorry for harming his friend. After Cycletron's defeat, Scrozzle used the Morph-X he and Blaze stole and used it along with Cycletron's data to create the Gigadrone Cycledrone. Devon deployed his Racer Zord for the first time whilst Ravi was busy worrying about Zoey. When Devon was frozen by a dog sign, Ravi and Zoey deployed in their Wheeler and Chopper Zords and fought it in the countryside. Ravi redeemed himself when Zoey was knocked out of the sky but landed safely on his Zord before going into Jackrabbit Mode and kicking it back into the Racer Zord, unfreezing it, where it was soon destroyed by the Cheetah Strike. TV STORY-Evox's Revenge
Scrozzle informs Blaze and Roxy that the Rangers have retrieved the Mega Transporters that they have stolen. Considering the Tronics useless, Blaze orders to Scrozzle to send a Gigadrone to distract the Rangers so that him and Roxy retake and use the three stolen Mega Transporters to teleport the Morph-X tower to the Cyber Dimension. The Rangers divides: Ravi takes the Mega Transporters while the others fight the Gigadrone. Roxy baited Ravi away, (because her sabotage of the real Roxy's stasis pod prevented the awakening), so that Blaze could retake the Mega Transporters. During the fight, Ravi destroys Roxy's Morpher, destroying her Ranger form and preventing her from fleeing. Ravi uses his Beast X Blaster, Roxy tries to shoot him but Ravi is not affected because his body is overheated. Roxy was ultimately destroyed by Ravi by four shots. She can only scream before she exploded. When the real Roxy awoke from her coma, she revealed she had all the avatar's memories, telling them all about Evox's master plan. TV STORY-Target: Tower

Ravi values the rules of Grid Battleforce and takes his role seriously. He does not waste time and quickly adapted to his new teammates when they were forced together. He wishes to prove himself to his mother. He strictly follows the rules of Grid Battleforce, even if it breaks his heart, forcing himself to not be with his love interest, Roxy. Despite this however, he later regrets it when Roxy doesn’t become a Ranger and instead gets put into a coma since them becoming Rangers is why he forced himself to break up with her. He is also a skilled martial artist, as it's important for his role as a Power Ranger.
He also has Dentophobia after he had bad experience with a dental drill when he was at a young age, which is why he always brushes and flosses his teeth so he doesn't have to go back. TV STORY-Thrills and Drills

Powers and Abilities
- Superhuman Strength: Due to being linked with Gorilla DNA, Ravi gained the power to lift heavy objects, his power increasing in his Ranger Form. He is so strong that he can create a mini earthquake by hitting the ground.
- Strength Amplification: When overheated, Ravi goes into such an uncontrollable rage so intense he even injured Zoey during a rampage. These outbursts are capable of massively increasing his normal super strength to the point of easily crushing Cycletron's tire arms with his bare hands, kicking a large bench at Vargoyle like it was nothing, picking up a boulder to throw at Roxy easily, and crushing Roxy's Morpher in one hand with no effort.
- Superhuman Durability: When full enraged during his final battle against Roxy, and when both summoned their blasters, he took a shot right to the stomach from her blaster and didn't even flinch.
- Inorganic Duplication: By combining with Smash in Beast-X Mode, he can temporarily create an object out of the material he duplicated from the touched surface.
- Overheat: Due to being linked with Gorilla DNA that was semi-corrupted by Evox, overusing his ability will cause Ravi to overheat and go berserk and will attack anyone in sight, friend or foe while gaining a temporary increase to his physical strength. In this state, his personality becomes much more aggressive and arrogant, and shows almost no mercy to his opponents or anyone else around him.
