General Shifter is
one of Venjix's two loyal commanding Generals. He is methodical
and wants to help his master claim victory over the Earth.
After Venjix decided that both General Crunch & General
Shifter had become obsolete, they were blasted & destroyed.
sometime though, both generals were rebuilt and given their
positions back in Venjix' evil machine order.
Shifter created a Generation 16 Hyper Bot that was going to be
used as the new body for Venjix. However, Tenaya 7 had
tampered with it, so that it would malfunction. So when
Shifter activated the bot to show its power, it attacked
Venjix. Shifter was then banished to the Wastelands by
took his Hyper Bot with him and planned to not only destroy the
Rangers, but Venjix as well. He managed to give the
Rangers a tough battle with his Hyper Bot, and even got control
of the PaleoMax Megazord for a short time. He battled the
Red Ranger and managed to implant a control key in him, without
the Ranger realizing it. However, the Hyper Bot was still
destroyed by the Ranger's RPM Ultrazord.
his bot was destroyed, Shifter took the key had had used to
upgrade the Hyper Bot and connected it to himself. This
caused Shifter to become more powerful. With Shifter still
lurking, he's a threat to both the Rangers and Venjix.
later activated his controller, giving him complete control over
Scott's body. When Shifter arrived in the city, the other
Rangers battled him, but were soon forced to prepare their
blasters. But before they could fire, the Red Ranger came
in, with his body being controlled by Shifter, and pointed his
blaster at the Rangers. It seemed like the Rangers would
have to choose between their friend or protecting the dome, but
then Shifter was attacked by Tenaya 15.
the attack, the controller for the control key was broken, and
so the key itself was ejected from Scott. Shifter then
made himself grow huge. The Rangers used the RPM Ultrazord
to beat him, but was not yet destroyed. The Red Ranger
battled Shifter on the ground and used his Street Saber to
destroy Shifter for good.
the Venjix army recovered the remains of Shifter's body.
Kilobyte was ordered to use them to build a new Venjix Body, and
he did so.
