|~ The Venjix Virus' most famous quote when enlarging an Attack Bot.|
The Venjix Virus was one of the main antagonists of the Power Rangers franchise, serving as the main antagonist of Power Rangers: RPM and Power Rangers Beast Morphers, an unseen antagonist in Power Rangers Super Samurai and An Overarching Antagonist Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel and a posthumous villain in Power Rangers Dino Fury. He was a megalomaniac computer virus/AI that took over the earth's technology and systems and planned on wiping out the entire human race. He was the creation and archenemy of Dr. K.
Venjix was originally an experimental computer virus created by Dr. K on an alternate Earth to help her escape from the demented government think-tank known as Alphabet Soup. However, he managed to gain sentience at some point and interpreted that his programming was to make the world a better place by eradicating humanity. Venjix found a way out of the system into the internet and the Alphabet Soup handlers prevented Doctor K from stopping him. Venjix escaped into the internet before accidentally released that he immediately infiltrated the said world's Internet system which resulting it evolved into an all-powerful A.I. that manipulated factories all over the world to create an army of robots to take over the world. After conquering most of alternate Earth, the Venjix Virus uploaded himself into a red light bulb at his army's fortress he used to speak to his generals and facilitated with anything his minions and himself needs including his own factories of robots. His generals were General Shifter, General Crunch, and the modified human Tenaya 7 as well as General Kilobyte those he is long thought dead.
Power Rangers RPM
Within two years of operation, billions of humans were exterminated but the small city of Corinth (a renamed Boston, massachusetts) holds out due to a very protective dome and the protection of the RPM Rangers. Dozens of Attack Bots fail and the addition of two more Rangers only make things worse for Venjix. Infuriated, Venjix eventually downloads himself into a Generation 14 Attack Bot that Shifter designed. He pilots a special green drone and can make new robots of the same model to download himself into. Venjix made a newer and more powerful model, but he wasn't fully downloaded into it because he was in a rush and was defeated. He decided not to use the model again. He uses a new model later on, using old parts of Shifter who has been destroyed by Scott. Venjix activates many Hybrids within Corinth and takes over the control tower before leaving to confront Doctor K whilst the Power Rangers fight his Final Attack Bot. He then destroys the lab and takes the biofield information, being able to delete Gem and Gemma as well as the PaleoMax and Mach Megazords. Dr. K and a newly restored Tenaya are able to tap a virus into Venjix's main computer and override his ability to delete the Rangers whilst restoring Gem and Gemma. Venjix is physically destroyed with the control tower falling onto and obliterating him. However, Venjix is able to save himself by transferring his conciousness into the Morphers using his connection to the Morphin Grid. Unaware that Venjix is alive, Doctor K locks up the Morphers for several years where Venjix lies dormant for many years.
Power Rangers Beast Morphers
- Main article: Evox
An unknown amount of time after Venjix' defeat, Venjix within the SkyRex Morphers is taken to the main dimension to be experimented on by the paramilitary organization . Scott's morpher was experimented on by Nate Silva. He unknowingly combined Venjix' code with Morph-X and Snake DNA, causing the virus to enter his computer systems. Some years later, Venjix makes his return as his re-formatted persona Evox.
Venjix was one of the most ruthless and sadistic villains in the entire Power Rangers franchise, and with very good reasons. To make it all the more menacing, it spoke in a metallic/robotic/demonic voice similar to that of King Mondo but deeper. Whilst it was almost always shown to be calm, calculating, sophisticated, knowledgeable, cold-hearted, power-mad, treacherous and manipulative, doing anything in its' power to destroy the RPM Power Rangers and rule the entire world. Likewise, it was also egotistical, narcissistic, and arrogant; believing that it would always win and "never" lose due to robots always being repariable whereas humans die for good. Unsurprisingly, the Venjix Virus was also tyrannical, pitiless, uncaring, and abusive as a running joke in the series was blasting apart General Crunch for questioning or mocking him. In spite of this, as it was a computer intelligence, it was dangerously intelligent and deceitful as it was capable of manipulating and deceiving others into doing its' bidding or even to turn friends against each other. Its' sadism was especially multiplied by its' complete and utter misanthropy as it hated humans with a passion, so much so that it was gleefully willing to kill all humans on Earth and was even more willing to commit genocide against the entire organic race, if that was what it so desired. It had no sense of humor and no comedy added, darkening its' character further.

- Venjix has the largest body count of all the Power Rangers villains, killing billions of humans and destroying thousands of cities except Corinth, giving him more of an edge than all the others.
- Venjix was also the only Power Rangers villain to actually take over the world.
- Venjix was inspired by both Skynet from the Terminator franchise and HAL 9000 from 2001: A Space Odyssey hence the very similar design and modus operandi.
- Venjix inspired the character of Messiah from Tokumei Sentai Go Busters who too was a genocidal computer virus. Ironically. Venjix happened to be Messiah's counterpart in the form of Evox.
