|~ Stag Beetle|
The Stag Beetle is a stag beetle monster, created by Lord Zedd. She serves as the main antagonist of the episode "The Beetle Invasion".
She is voiced by Wendee Lee.
Stag Beetle was created by Zedd from the drawing on a flyer outside the Angel Grove's Youth Center for Stone Canyon's broomball team. Stag Beetle could drain energy of her enemies and use it against them. She also could project energy bolts from her claws and pincers and shock his foes with claws. Zedd sent him to battle the Power Rangers.
Zedd planned to take away Tommy's Green Ranger powers completely. Stag Beetle attacked the Rangers. She attacked Tommy and obtained her power of Green Ranger. Then monster battled the Rangers and fired green energy from her pincers and with each blast he used Green Ranger Power. But Alpha created the special device called "Green Energy Transducer" for Tommy to use against Stag Beetle.
Tommy used the device and absorbed the attack of the villain, regaining some of his lost powers. Then Rangers assembled Power Blaster and fired, causing the monster to fall. Jason realized that monster wasn't finished yet and Zedd used a growth grenade to make Stag Beetle Grow. Heroes formed their Thunder Megazord and battled him. During the battle with Megazord, Stag Beetle talked incessantly about using his pincers to attack the Rangers, blasting them with green energy from his pincers and using his claws to electrocute Thunder Megazord.
She knocked Megazord down, repeatedly kicking it, forcing the rangers to switch the emergency power for the first time with their new Zords. Thunder Megazord chopped off Stag Beetle's pincers, greatly upsetting the monster. Stag Beetle was then defeated by the Thunder Saber.
Trumpet Top later summoned an illusionary Stag Beetle among other monsters as part of a plot to wear down the Rangers until Zordon saw through the plot.
Later, in "Ninja Quest, Part I", Stag Beetle was recreated by Finster to assist Rito Revolto, Fighting Flea, Lizzinator, and Octophantom in a mission where they successfully ambushed and destroyed the Thunder Zords.
She was later shown wandering around on Onyx.
Stag Beetle was also among the monsters present in Rita and Zedd's army in the Vica Galaxy.
She was possibly destroyed by Zordon's Energy Wave.
Stag Beetle was cunning, devious and ruthless monster that took great pride in destroying the Power Rangers. She was shown to be abusive and contemptuous and enjoyed abusing Rangers. But she is also loyal to Zedd.
