|This article is about a/an monster in Power Rangers Operation Overdrive.|
- "Here, master."
- ―Volkan's first lines as he gives Moltar the Fire Heart Scale.[src]
Originally a Lava Lizard that proved itself to be strongest Salamander among all Lava Lizards. Because of its strength and skill, Moltor transformed it into a powerful volcanic half Dragon, half lizard version of itself called Volkan. In the first battle with rangers, monster was too powerful for them. He had strong armor and could shoot fire from his mouth. Its' mission was to steal Fire Heart's scale while in route to Hartford Mansion. He was initially too powerful for the Rangers until they found they could damage him by attacking his back. Moltor's plan was to use the scale to power up this monster into the ultimate beast by exposing the scale to the increasing temperature of the factory where they were located. But the scale was stolen from the building before preventing the building's explosion using the DriveMax Megazord's Mixer Formation. With the Rangers reclaiming the scale for the new Defender Vest, Volkan was destroyed by Mack Hartford with the new Drill Blaster weapon.
Much like the Lava Lizards previously, Volkan is a violent creature that will destroy anyone in his path. But he is also loyal to Moltor.
