Spinferno was a fire-based roller skate/tiger/goblin-themed contestant for Galaxy Warriors and was the main antagonist of the episode "Live and Learn."

Character History

Spinferno is hired by Galvanax to attack the Rangers and get the Ninja Steel. Cosmo Royale hosts the show but it is interrupted by Spinferno. Cosmo gets angry and starts yelling at Spinferno who spins around him multiple times, making him dizzy. He then goes against the Brody and has the upper hand at first but with the Element Star Ninja Water Attack, the Ranger is able to blast him into the far skies. The monster later returns and wreaks havoc on the city but instead of the Power Rangers, he gets confronted by Victor Vincent and Monty in superhero outfits. After a long and laughable montage of the two idiots being "Superheroes" and trying to take him out with a fire extinguisher, he takes out the Datacom that Monty is holding with his fire spark and does his twister spin on the two "superheroes" to send them flying for several miles.

Afterwards, Spinferno is confronted with Calvin, Preston, Sarah, and Hayley but has the upper hand and the Rangers were in trouble. In the nick of time, Brody comes in and blasts the monster with his Ninja Blaster. The Red Ranger morphs and Spinferno summons an army of Kudabots to attack the Rangers and goes into battle. Whilst most of the Rangers take on the Kudabots, Brody and Preston take on Spinferno. Despite their teamwork, they are easily outmatched by the monster so the others join in. Outnumbered, Spinferno roller-skates away but is confronted by Calvin, who "challenges" him to a "race" for his Power Star, to which Spinferno agrees. However, it is a trap for him to get cornered by the other Rangers who then use the Element Star Forest Attack to hold him down and then obliterate him with the Ninja Fire Attack Final Strike, After Spinferno is "put out" by the Rangers, Cosmo asks the audience if Spinferno should be "lit back up", but the audience votes "No" so Cosmo Royale unleashes a Skullgator instead.

Spinferno is among the defeated monsters that had to be faced off against in the "Grave Robber" board game that Cosmo Royale operates. When Calvin faces off against Spinferno in the junkyard, the monster uses a gold ring to hack into a truck driver's truck and attaches another one to Calvin to make it difficult for him to stop the runaway truck before it goes over the cliff. Calvin breaks free and saves the truck driver but is unable to save himself as he is teleported away. Cosmo Royale then gives the Rangers another Misfortune Card that says their next fight is a Gigantify Round as he unleashes a Skullgator and an evil surprise. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Grave Robber

Personality

Spinferno acted very much like a little kid as he was quite childish and full of himself but remained loyal to Galvanax. He was also shown to be impatient as he got annoyed when he was confronted by Victor and Monty instead of the Power Rangers. Possibly due to his attitude, Spinferno was unpopular with the Galaxy warriors audience as they voted no to him being Gigantified.

Powers and Abilities

Powers

  • Extraordinary Speed: Thanks to Spinferno's roller skates, he could go at high speed and easily avoid the Rangers' strikes. He was easily able outmatch Brody in terms of speed during their fight and easily overwhelm the others later in the episode. The only thing that could keep up was Calvin using his Element Star Ninja Water Attack to project water from his Star Blade in order to basically fly.
    • Twister Spin: By utilizing his speed, Spinferno could skate around the enemy so fast a twister appeared around the target, causing the victim to get dizzy and go high into the air within the tornado. This was powerful enough to lift up both Victor and Monty and send them away.
  • Teleportation: Spinferno was able to teleport in a flash of yellow-green.
  • Heat Generation: Spinferno could radiate heat from around himself which was powerful enough to break free from Brody's Ninja Metal Attack.
  • Fireballs: Spinferno could launch fireballs from his hands which could cause small explosions.
  • Fire Sparks: Spinferno could launch a small spark of fire from his hands which was able to destroy Brody's Datacom.
  • Flame Kick: Spinferno could charge up his leg with fire and kick at the enemy which was able to knock down Hayley.

Abilities

  • Durability: Spinferno could take multiple slashes from Brody's Ninja Star Blade and come out relatively unscathed.
  • Kudabot Summoning: Spinferno could summon an army of Kudabots to aid him in battle.

Weaknesses

to be added

Arsenal

  • Claws: Being a tiger-like monster, Spinferno lacked weapons but had clawed hands for combat.
    • Flame Empowerment: Spinferno could power up his claws with flames for an increase in strength.
  • Triple Arm Rings: Spinferno has three golden rings on his forearms that can do the following:
    • Fire Bursts: Spinferno could launch fire bursts from the three golden rings on his forearms.
    • Sleep Inducement: Spinferno's rings were able to put a truck driver to sleep.
    • Technology Hacking: Spinferno's gold ring could be used to hack technology as shown in Grave Robber.
    • Cuff Transformation: Spinferno could remove and throw his ring at his enemy, which will transform into a cuff that can hold them in place to anything.

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

Design

  • Spinferno was based upon an anthropomorphic tiger equipped with roller skates.

Etymology

  • His name was a portmanteau of Spin and Inferno to match his abilities.

Notes

  • Unlike his Japanese counterpart, Spinferno was not destroyed by Ripcon since that wouldn't make sense to happen so they instead shot original footage to destroy him human-sized.
  • He is the only contestant to not be grown giant as the audience did not vote for his revival, however it is possible that this happened to Korvaka.
