|“||Forgive me, Mondo. I have failed you and the Empire!||„|
|~ Final words before his death.|
General Venjix is the leader of the remnants of the Machine Empire and a antagonist in Power Rangers Wild Force. He is the main antagonist of the episode "Forever Red".
He was portrayed by Terence J. Rotolo, and voiced by Archie Kao.
After the destruction of the Royal House of Gadget, Venjix and the remaining generals of the Machine Empire took command of what remained of the Empire. They planned to unearth Lord Zedd's Zord, Serpentera, and use it to destroy the Earth in revenge for the demise of King Mondo. Venjix's forces succeeded in digging up Serpentera on the moon and outfitted it with a Neo-Plutonium reactor that could overcome the Zord's weakness of running out of power quickly. However a team of 10 Red Rangers arrived as Venjix and the other generals were about to board Serpentera to stop their plans. After the Rangers defeated their Cogs, the generals faced off against the Rangers in teams of two, with Venjix taking on Jason Lee Scott and Cole Evans.
However he was beaten and his fellow generals were destroyed, Venjix boarded Serpentera alone and took off. But Cole used his new Wild Force Rider to fly into the Zord's mouth and blow it up from the inside, taking out Venjix along with it and bringing an end to the Machine Empire forever.
