|This article is about a/an set of grunts in Power Rangers Dino Thunder.|
|"They're called Tyrannodrones [...] I helped create them."|
|―Tommy Oliver explains to Conner and Ethan[src]|
Created by Anton Mercer and Tommy Oliver, as a mixture of dinosaur DNA and technology. When Mercer became Mesogog, they were reprogrammed to serve him. They used invisiportals to get around and fight the Rangers.
They were all destroyed by the end of Dino Thunder, when Hayley destroyed Mesogog's base.
- The Tyrannodrones are obedient to its creator Mesogog. As with most foot soldiers, they rarely talk.
Powers and Abilities
- Armor: Tyrannodrones have durable armor that allow them to fight off attacks.
- Resistance: Their optimization for actual combat, coupled with their armor, endowed them resistance against enemy attack to some degrees.
- Agility: Their optimization for actual combat also endowed them agility to efficiently chase and attack targets.
- Body Modification: The Tyrannodrones can change parts of their body at will, being able to turn their arms into scythes.
- Invisiportal: They can create Invisiportals to teleport at will.
- Scythe Arms: They can turn their arms into scaly scythes to attack their enemies with great damage.
Behind the Scenes
to be added
The Tyrannodrones are reptilian cyborgs with some resemblance of dinosaurs as dinosaur DNA was involved in their creation. They have horns, sharp protrusions, and green scales on their bodies as well as black armor and boots. It's implied that they were originally not designed with actual combat capabilities as shown in Tommy's second encounter with Tyrannodrones, where he, Ethan and Conner are looking for Kira, Tommy remarked that Mesogog has greatly improved these foot soldier after they failed to capture both him and the Dino Gems in his possession.

- Tyrannodrones were the first Foot Soldiers created by a specific Ranger which were used against the Power Rangers of the day. Ironically that Ranger was Tommy, the first evil Ranger and a member of the team that fought them.
- The Tyrannodrones are, as of 2004, the last main group of foot soldiers to be exclusive to Power Rangers (although Kamdor would use mind controlled stuntmen in one episode of Power Rangers Operation Overdrive).
- They are the only main Power Rangers-exclusive foot soldiers from the Disney Era.
- In addition, their costumes are heavily modified versions of those of the Stingwingers, another group of Power Rangers - exclusive foot soldiers.
- Despite the Triptoids being used in Beast Morphers, the Tyrannodrones didn't appear, and were replaced by the Triptoids entirely, since they were the main foot soldiers in Abaranger and thus, is the one appearing in the Sentai footage of Kyoryuger VS Go-Busters.
