Shoveldrone is a Beta Model Gigadrone created from the data of Shoveltron in Power Rangers Beast Morphers.

Character History

Scrozzle teleports Shoveldrone to Coral Harbor while the Rangers were still fighting. With Ravi and Zoey being busy fighting Shoveltron, Devon deployed alone with Cruise in the Racer Zord and Rapid Blast wounded it and the Racer Zord changed into Battle Mode. It proved to be a perfect match for Shoveltron, knocking it back with a massive punch to the head but the Gigadrone unleashed a swarm of missiles that the Racer Zord's Rocket Storm couldn't stop since they were having no effect on the Gigadrone. Devon had the idea to change the Racer Zord into it's Cheetah Mode which was able to dodge the missiles and stun the Gigadrone with it's Beast Bite before finishing it off with the Cheetah Strike. Ironically, both Shoveldrone and Shoveltron were killed at the same time, the latter being killed by Ravi and Zoey's Beast-X Blasters. Digital Deception

Shoveldrone and Shoveltron are both destroyed.

Pieces of Shoveldrone are later recovered by Grid Battleforce for study, though the wreckage is too badly damaged to provide any useful information. Taking Care of Business

Powers and Abilities

  • Durability: Shoveldrone had very thick metal skin which made him almost completely immune to the Racer Zord's Rapid Blast and the Racer Zord's Rocket Storm exploded on it with no effect.
  • Missiles: Shoveldrone can shoot missiles from its back to bombard its enemies.

Arsenal

  • Right Shovel Arm: Shoveldrone's right arm is a shovel, which can be used to attack or dig up the city.
  • Left Pincer Arm: Shoveldrone's left arm is a pincer to use in battle which was able to block a kick from the Racer Zord Battle Mode.

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal
