History

This monster was summoned by Jinxer to serve Vypra, defeat the Power Rangers and destroy Mariner Bay by hurling explosive orbs at buildings that causes them to ignite. He confronts the Lightspeed Rangers and summons an army of Batlings to hold them down while he escapes. Chad and Kelsey went after the monster and gave chase into an old building, where he got cornered, but he used his explosive gas to cause an explosion that put Kelsey in the hospital when she fired her Rescue Blaster at the door where he smoked. He sees the results of both Kelsey and Chad being "out for the count" and goes out to find Vypra and tell her the news, but little did he know that (A), Chad and Kelsey had survived the blast, and (B), Brian, a young man who seems to have a small grudge over Chad was secretly following him. When he got to the secret hiding place, he proudly tells Vypra the news of how he took care of both Chad and Kelsey. Afterwards, Vypra then orders Smogger to use his gas to blow up Mariner Bay and they caught Brian, who was spying on them both, but he says he wants to defeat Chad himself. Smogger then returns to Mariner Bat with an army of Batlings and goes to the main street tunnel to try and blow up Mariner Bay from underneath. Carter, Joel, and Dana came to battle the monster, so he sends the Batlings but they were all easily defeated. He took out the Rangers by first tying them up with his Mouth Vine Rope attack and throwing a barrage of exploding orbs at the Rangers. He was about to finish them off with a much larger orb bomb until Kelsey came to the rescue in her Lightspeed Cycle and blasted the bomb back at Smogger with the Rescue Speeder before using her Rescue Blaster to free the other Rangers. They were still outmatched, but Chad (after both battling and saving Brian from Vypra's hypnosis) came in to help, Carter and Chad then rode on the Lightspeed Cycle and blasted him with the Lightspeed Cycle blasters and the Rescue Blaster to weaken him enough to run him over with the Lightspeed Cycle, finally destroying him.

Notes

  • Unlike his Sentai counterpart, he was not revived into a giant by Jinxer and did not fight a giant battle where he was slain by the Lightspeed Megazord.
    • The Zord battle was presumably cut because he is not destroyed in the traditional energy slash down his stomach. Instead, his Sentai counterpart Gasgail turned into his ball form and descended on Victory Robo but was violently cut in half which could be seen as somewhat gruesome.
  • During the battle with Carter, Dana and Joel, Smogger says, "Great balls of fire!", a line used by Mr. Magoo, the protagonist of a series of comic books called What's up Mr. Magoo?.
  • Smogger appeared as a boss in Power Rangers: Lightspeed Rescue (video game) on the Game Boy Color.
