Character History

Drillion arrives on Warrior Dome Ship with Princess Viera. He fights the Rangers but when Viera is saved by Sarah she orders to him to fold. Galvanax convinces him to join him and that if Viera can not destroy the Rangers, he destroys them and her to become the new leader of Lion Galaxy. Viera saves Sarah from Drillion, then Cosmo Royale uses the Gigantify Ray and sends 2 Skullgators to help Drillion. The Rangers destroy the two Skullgators but Drillion defeats their Ninja Fusion Zord. Fortunately, Viera uses the Lion Ship to help the Rangers and Drillion retreats. The Royal Rival

He returns to Galvanax and Madame Odius makes him stronger by transforming his second hand into a Toolbox. He fights the Rangers to destroy the Lion Ship but when Brody wins Viera's Lion Fire Armor, he destroys Drillion. Furious, Galvanax orders a Kudabot to Gigantify Drillion. Drillion is finally destroyed by Brody and the Lion Fire Megazord. The Royal Rumble


Drillion is a ruthless warrior who was once dedicated to protecting Princess Viera and staying by her side, going as far by ordering those to bow before her.

He enjoys taunting his enemies while he lays waste upon them with malicious glee.

He then noticed that Viera had ordered him to stop the fight which he did not like, which makes him come off as hesitant from leaving his objectives.

It was only until Galvanax persuaded him to kill his former mistress so that he can rule the Lion Galaxy with a literal iron fist, thus revealing his true colors due to noticing that Viera didn't have the chance to destroy the Power Rangers, coming to his suspicion that Viera is too weak to rule.

Even though he is then against Viera, he still fears the Lion Fire Zord's raw power.
