"Ah, yes! And so it begins! My sneeze will rain down on these humans and infect them all. Soon all of humanity will be my minions. Ah ha ha ha ha ha!"
―Virox's first lines as he explain his plans.[src]

"This virus has just become ten times stronger!"
―Virox after being enlarged.[src]

"Ah! Noooooooo!"
―Virox's final words before his death.[src]

Virox is the third Insectoid to invade Earth by Admiral Malkor in an attempt to conquer it. He gets fought by the Mega Rangers as the main antagonist in the third episode "Going Viral". He is themed after a shield bug/stinkbug.

Biography

In a changing of tactics expected to outmaneuver the human resistance, Vrak intended to use Virox's skills to outpace the reaction of the Mega Rangers against Warstar. Virox is an Insectoid who uses a virus to infect humans, turning them into Loogies. Unlike Scaraba and Yuffo, Virox relies on defense rather than either offense or intelligence to defeat his enemies. After Vrak claims the Insectoids can conquer the planet without an army, Malkor allows him to proceed with his plan despite Creepox's protests, intrigued to see if his subordinate's cleverness and competence are high enough for such a plot to succeed. Noah figures out that his large mouth is his weak spot, and fires at it with his Shark Bowgun, but Virox blocks it with his large mouth armor. He is destroyed by the Mega Blaster, but is enlarged by Zombats. The Rangers try to use Mega Strike on him, but Virox is immune to the Gosei Great Megazord's sword and steals it to use against them. Luckily, the Sea Brothers Zords arrived just in time to stop him. The Megaforce Rangers then formed the Sea Gosei Great Megazord to destroy him.Tvicon.png TV STORY-Going Viral

Personality

Virox believes he is unbeatable due to his tactics and reinforced armor. However, his over-inflated ego is his undoing, as his defenses are finally breached thanks to Noah's self-belief and intelligence.
