Biography

As an idea given to him by Vypra, Diabolico had Jinxer create a tornado-themed monster named Whirlin. Whirlin first attacked Mariner Bay in a form of a tornado, then disappeared to let Diabolico introduce himself to Carter, Chad, Joel, Kelsey and Dana, the Rangers, and later appeared to attack the city again after Diabolico's introduction. Carter managed to scan the tornado and blasted Whirlin with his Rescue Blaster, forcing him to transform back to his original form and summon an army of Batlings. As the other Rangers fought the Batlings, Carter fought Whirling, but was outmatched. The other Rangers came in, but they too got blasted by Whirlin's Mouth Fire Burst Balls. The Rangers used their Rescue Blasters, forcing Whirlin to retreat. He then attacked a space shuttle which Kelsey's friend Nancy was piloting, but was destroyed inside of his tornado by the Lightspeed Rangers' with the Unilaser after they rescued Nancy and the shuttle. Jinxer used his cards to enlarge Whirlin so he can attack Mariner Bay, forcing the Rangers to form the Lightspeed Megazord to take on Whirlin. He attempted to use his Wind Spin ability on the Megazord, but that did very little harm on it. The Megazord then used its Lightspeed Ladder Arms Power Punch to attack the monster before throwing him with great force. Even then Whirlin was not down yet. So the Lightspeed Rangers then used the Lightspeed Megazord's Sabre to destroy Whirlin once and for all.Tvicon.png TV STORY-Riding the Edge

Behind The Scenes

Portrayal

Notes

Whirlin in storage.

  • Whirlin's name comes from a type of wind called a Whirlwind.
  • Whirlin's design bears a strong resemblints to the second form of Dracula, the main antagonist of the video game franchies, Castlevania.
    • Additionally, the Mouth Fire Burst Balls that Whilrin fires from his mouth are similar to the way that Dracula's monster form fires from his mouth.
  • The reason that the Megazord threw Whirlin instead of immediately using its saber was because this was only Episode 2 in GoGoV and the first appearance of the Lightspeed Megazord Saber. The editors cut out an extended scene where the Rangers had the Braver Sword introduced to them as this would be redundant after it was introduced in the previous episode.
    • Quakemon originally came from Episode 7.
