Over 65 million years ago, Vypeerra and the other Sporix Beasts invaded Rafkon, the home planet of Zayto. Though he and his fellow Knights of Rafkon fought hard, the Sporix ravaged Rafkon and removed all traces of life from the planet. The Sporix then turned their attention to Earth but Zayto and the remaining Knights had managed to escape Rafkon and tracked the Sporix Beasts to Earth where they engaged them in battle with the help of the dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures. Despite the Knights initially having the upper-hand against the Sporix, most of them grew enough in power over time to grow giant and force the Knights of Rafkon and their dinosaur allies to retreat. When all seemed lost however, the Morphin Masters arrived and bestowed the Morphin Grid's powers to Zayto and his followers, as the first Ancient Dino Fury Rangers which gave them the advantage they need to defeat the Sporix Beasts and seal them inside of their eggs.
When the other Sporix are accidentally released in the modern day during Void Knight's attack on Dinohenge, Vypeera's egg is amongst the Sporix that escape.
Vypeera's Sporix Cell is discovered by J-Borg near a paving site only to hatch into her Sporix Beast form and start attacking nearby civilians. J-Borg uses the Ranger Hotline to call the Dino Fury Rangers who teleport into the area to confront her. However, Vypeera uses the eyes on her chest to immobilize Zayto and attacks the frozen Ranger on the spot. Ollie and Amelia try to fight her but, due to her powers, they struggle to fight her without looking at her. Even though she is winning against the two, Vypeera retreats with Mucus after the latter finds a discarded camcorder and wants to use it for a greater plan.
Vypeera and Mucus set up a recording station on the roof of BuzzBlast where they hijack the website by sending out her own video. Anyone who looks at the video immediately freezes in place but Zayto, having been freed thanks to Solon, teleports in blindfolded. Using the Sonic Dino Key, Zayto enhances his hearing and attacks Vypeera, managing to hold his own before destroying her laptop and ending the broadcast. Angry that her plan is ruined, Vypeera sets her sights on destroying Zayto only for a morphed Ollie and Amelia to teleport in and defend their friend. Jumping off the rooftop, she grows into a giant so Zayto fights her in the T-Rex Champion Zord Battle Mode but struggles to hit her since he had to fight whilst covering his eyes. Thankfully, Solon deploys the Tricera Blade and Ankylo Hammer Zords and Ollie and Amelia hatch a plan to blind her chest-mounted eyes. Using the Zords, they creat rubble from the street and then, with a combination of the Hover and Reverse Dino Keys, succeed in covering Vypeera's chest eyes. They then form the new Dino Fury Megazord which Vypeera finds herself at the mercy of and is swiftly defeated by the Mega Slash, reverting back to her Sporix Cell form. The Rangers grab it before Void Knight could and place her back into the chest.
Later on, Vypeera's Sporix alongside Draknarok, Smashstone, the one Boomtower took, and Roostafa are seen in the containment unit when Slyther tries stealing them. He ultimately fails and her Sporix Egg remains in Dinohenge.
Vypeera was very cunning and took her job seriously but had the patience of a saint when it came to working with Mucus who was extremely childish and annoying around her.
