Thunderclaw is a humanoid stag beetle/Crab-like demon and is one of the many monsters to be created by Jinxer. He was created by Jinxer to help Prince Olympius, son of Queen Bansheera, take over Lightspeed Aquabase.
Thunderclaw was created by Jinxer to serve as the physical strength and help Olympius take over the Lightspeed Aquabase. He laid the army of Batlings into the Aquabase, they arrived to the Aquuabase, but to no avail, they then arrived on the beach, because Olympius was heavily weakened by the water, while battling Carter. Vypra then sent Thunderclaw to destroy the Lightspeed Rangers. He encountered them on the beach. Thunderclaw was shown to be a lot stronger than the previous monsters. However, Carter used Battle Booster on him, and villain was weakened enough for the Rangers to use V-Lancers to destroy him. Jinxer revived and enlarged him and Thunderclaw battled Lightspeed Solarzord. After long battle he was finally destroyed. He was then banished to Shadow World. Thunderclaw was seen among the demons in Shadow World when rangers were trapped there. . He was later among the demons, absorbed by Olympius. In The Fate of Lightspeed Part 2, Thunderclaw was seen among the demons in Shadow World.
