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 are still fighting Shoveltron. Devon uses the Racer Zord's Battle Mode to stop Shoveldrone from attacking a Morph-X Tower. The Racer Zord then assumes Cheetah mode (the first time it does so) to avoid Shoveldrone's missile attacks. Devon then uses the Racer Zord's Cheetah Strike to destroy Shoveldrone. Digital Deception

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: Much like it's Gigatron counterpart, the Shoveldrone had very thick metal skin which made him almost completely immune to the Racer Zord's Rapid Blast. Even a massive punch to the back of it's head from the Racer Zord Battle Mode did little more than make it stumble forward. Two more powerful punches from the Racer Zord Battle Mode, the last of which was powerful enough to make the Ranger Zord slide backwards, hardly fazed it and the Racer Zord's Rocket Storm exploded in it with no effect. Even the Racer Zord Cheetah Mode's Beast Bite had little effect except for making it yell.
  • Missiles: It can shoot missiles from it's back to attack its enemies.

Arsenal

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

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

  • Like his Robotron counterpart, his voice is provided by Andre King, although he only speaks in grunts and roars.

Notes

  • Shoveldrone is the first Gigadrone to face the Racer Zord Cheetah Mode and the only one before the hiatus.
  • Pieces of Shoveldrone were retrieved for study in the next episode.
