Stag Beetle - Voiced by Wendee Lee

Stag Beetle was created by Lord Zedd from Stone Canyon's broomball poster.  Stag Beetle leaves the poster and stands outside the Youth Center.  Lord Zedd instructs it to wait for Tommy, then attack and drain him of his powers.  The Stag Beetle walks away.  Lord Zedd had spotted Kimberly and Tommy running in the park and sent down several of his Putties to keep them occupied.  After awhile, Stag Beetle appears in the park.  He tells them, they shall now feel the wrath of Lord Zedd.  Kimberly is not happy to see another bug.  Kimberly and Tommy morph.  Green Ranger leaps over and fights more of Zedd's Putties.  Pink Ranger fights another set of Putties.  Green Ranger flips a Putty onto the grass and side sweeps another one.  Pink Ranger kicks a Putty and punches another one.  Stag Beetle has had enough.  Time to say goodbye to your powers Green Ranger.  Several of Zedd's Putties run towards Green Ranger and grab a hold of him.  Stag Beetle stands in front of Green Ranger and begins to drain him of his powers.  Left alone, Pink Ranger contacts Zordon.  Tommy and I need help.  Pink Ranger declares, those clay brains never quit.  Pink Ranger is unable to reach Green Ranger, as she is busy fighting yet more Putties.  Green Ranger collapses to his knees as Stag Beetle brags, nothing like a little Green Ranger power to brighten up your day.  Stag Beetle lets go of Green Ranger.  Green Ranger asks, what have you done to me?  Stag Beetle gloats, I have drained you of your power.  Your days as a Power Ranger are over.  Red Ranger, Blue Ranger, Black Ranger, and Yellow Ranger arrive and  immediately began fighting the Putties.  Green Ranger is very weak.  Stag Beetle declares, your power now belongs to Lord Zedd!  Stag Beetle and the Putties vanish.  Later, Lord Zedd sends Stag Beetle back out to drain the rest of the Rangers' powers.  The Rangers arrive and Stag Beetle asks, didn't you learn anything from your green friend?  Now it's your turn!  Yellow Ranger, Red Ranger, Black Ranger, Pink Ranger, and Blue Ranger pull out their Blade Blasters and charge towards Stag Beetle.  The five Rangers fight Stag Beetle with their Blade Blasters.  Stag Beetle strikes the Rangers back.  He soon has them all knocked away.  The Rangers gather together as Black Ranger states, I hate bugs!  Stag Beetle tells them they are finished!  Black Ranger tells his team, wait here guys!  I'll squash that bug brain!  Black Ranger leaps over to Stag Beetle.  But before Black Ranger can strike, Stag Beetle knocks him out of the air.  Black Ranger lands hard on his back.  Stag Beetle laughs.  Stag Beetle tells Black Ranger, you're no match for me, foolish Ranger.  Black Ranger, with his Blade Blaster, fights Stag Beetle.  Stag Beetle manages to grab a hold of Black Ranger and tosses him aside.  Black Ranger lands on his back once more.  The rest of the Rangers gather around him.  Red Ranger asks if he is okay?  Black Ranger replies yeah.  The four Rangers form a protective circle around Black Ranger and have their Blade Blasters pointed towards Stag Beetle.  Stag Beetle asks, how about a little Green Ranger power?  Stag Beetle blasts the Rangers with Green Ranger's power.  The Rangers are hit hard and knocked off their feet.  They land on the ground and roll down a hill.  Stag Beetle laughs.  When they hit the bottom, Red Ranger tells them, we have to catch him, to get Tommy's powers back.  Red Ranger shouts, attack!  Pink Ranger and Black Ranger leap into the air with their Blade Blasters.  As does Blue Ranger, Yellow Ranger, and Red Ranger.  They strike Stag Beetle simultaneously, but once more Stag Beetle knocks them aside.  Stag Beetle asks, want to play ball.  Stag Beetle generates electrical currents out of his pinchers and it forms a ball.  Stag Beetle tosses the ball towards the Rangers.  The Rangers are hit hard.  Several Putties arrive, and Stag Beetle tells them, let's finish them off!  The Rangers struggle to get back up.  Red Ranger grunts out, this guy's tough.  Stag Beetle asks, what's the matter?  Something bugging you?  Stag Beetle laughs.  The Rangers stumble back up and Red Ranger tells the team, I'll distract him, while you attack.  Black Ranger tells him, no.  He's too strong.  He's using Tommy's powers against us.  Yellow Ranger adds, we got to get out of the open and find some cover.  Red Ranger agrees.  We'll find a spot where we can fight him on our terms.  Red Ranger takes off running, as he shouts, let's go!  The rest of the Rangers hesitates.  Blue Ranger shouts wait a minute!  Black Ranger shouts, Jason, hold up!  Shouldn't we be going the other way?!  Reluctantly the rest of the Rangers follow.  Stag Beetle thinks the Rangers are running away.  He tells the Putties to go after them.  The Rangers continue to run as explosions hit behind them.  The Rangers end up on top of a hill and Black Ranger notes, it's the end of the road.  The Rangers turn around and see Stag Beetle and the Putties.  Stag Beetle asks, what's the matter Power Rangers?  No where to run?  Red Ranger replies, we're not afraid to fight you.  Stag Beetle states, maybe a blast of Green Ranger power will change your mind.  Red Ranger shouts back, give it your best shot!  Black Ranger warns, it will blow us right off the edge.  Green Ranger arrives a few feet away.  Green Ranger shouts at the Rangers to duck as he aims the device at Stag Beetle.  Stag Beetle pays no attention and begins to fire the Green Ranger power.  The Rangers duck down.  Green Ranger uses the device and the power returns to Green Ranger.  Green Ranger shouts a thank you to Alpha 5.  Black Ranger asks, what happened?  I thought we were about to be toast.  Yellow Ranger notes, for some reason, the Green Ranger power never hit us.  Red Ranger notes, it's Tommy.  He's back.  The Green Ranger's power is ours again.  And that means you're finished beetle head!  Red Ranger shouts, weapons everybody!  Stag Beetle gloats, I am the unbeatable beetle.  Red Ranger states, we'll see about that.  The Rangers assemble their power weapons to form Power Blaster.  The Rangers fire Power Blaster and Stag Beetle is defeated.  Blue Ranger warns, I don't think he's done yet guys.  Lord Zedd tosses down his grow bomb.  Stag Beetle catches the bomb.  Blue Ranger notes Zedd's potion has revived Stag Beetle.  Red Ranger adds, that's not all he's doing.  Stag Beetle grows huge.  The Rangers summon their Thunder Zords.  The Thunder Zords arrive and Thunder Megazord is quickly formed.  Stag Beetle states, let's see how you like a little pincher action and charges towards Thunder Megazord.  Stag Beetle strikes Thunder Megazord hard.  Black Ranger shouts, we got to exterminate this bug!  Stag Beetle laughs.  Thunder Megazord falls to the ground.  Stag Beetle taunts them.  Taking a little rest?!  Well, wake up!  Stag Beetle kicks Thunder Megazord.  Red Ranger states, we can't take any more hits like that.  We got to get up.  Thunder Megazord gets back up and faces Stag Beetle.  Stag Beetle is ready - come on!  My pinchers will make power mush out of you.  Red Ranger tells the team, here he comes.  When he gets close enough - power punch!  Thunder Megazord punches Stag Beetle, knocking him to the ground.  Thunder Megazord strikes Stag Beetle with the thunder saber, hurting it's pinchers.  Thunder Megazord strikes another blow to Stag Beetle with it's thunder saber.  Stag Beetle is destroyed.

 Trumpet Top had the power to create illusions.  In order to wear out the Rangers, Trumpet Top created illusions of past monsters.  Stag Beetle was one of the illusions created, along with Saliguana, Soccadillo, Grumble Bee, Fighting Flea, Rhinoblaster, and Slippery Shark.  The first illusion to appear was Grumble Bee.  The Power Rangers face down Grumble Bee.  Soon, Saliguana and Fighting Flea appear.  The three monsters face down the Rangers.  The Rangers fight Saliguana, Fighting Flea, and Grumble Bee.  Soccadillo quickly joins the fight.  The Rangers break apart to fight the various "monsters".  Yellow Ranger and Pink Ranger fight Stag Beetle, Soccadillo, and Slippery Shark.  Red Ranger defeats Fighting Flea.  But Stag Beetle, Slippery Shark, and Soccadillo are eager to fight him.  Red Ranger fights the three monsters.  Soon, Stag Beetle, Mantis, Soccadillo, Saliguana, Slippery Shark, Fighting Flea, Grumble Bee, and Rhinoblaster surround the Rangers.   The Rangers break through the circle and continue to fight Stag Beetle and the rest of the "monsters."   Alpha 5 teleports the Rangers away.  At the Command Center, the Rangers are informed that they have been fighting illusions.  Later, Trumpet Top is destroyed by Thunder Megazord.
