Character History

Switchbeast is a cat/ knight-themed Nighlok that was sent as a herald for Serrator. He appeared on Master Xandred’s ship and told Xandred and Octoroo that he was sent by his master, whom he did not name. Xandred was pleased to hear of that and told Switchbeast to go on a rampage in the City and make people as miserable as possible to make the Sanzu River rise and flood. He was able to switch people's spirits into inanimate objects. He switched civillians bodies with objects such as chairs, coat hangers and mirrors, as well as switching the Rangers. He switched Jayden's spirit with a garden gnome, Kevin's with a ballerina statue, Mia's with a fan, Antonio's with a fish, Spike's with a newspaper, and Bulk's with a soda can. Because Mike and Emily were the only ones left un-switched, they came up with a plan in which Mike got Switchbeast to switch bodies with him, and made him change everyone back from the inanimate objects to themselves. Mike used the Black Box to destroy him for a first time, but he turned into a Mega-Monster. Using the Black Box again, Mike was able to Summon the Claw Armour Megazord with Emily. After a battle, Switchbeast was destroyed by the Claw Armor Megazord.
