General Crunch is one of the three generals of the Venjix Computer Network.
At one point he drove Venjix to blow him to pieces when he first asked if Venjix would rather wait until the rangers defeat an attack bot before downloading into it a growth program, and later wonders out loud why Venjix hasn't launched a full-scale attack while the city defenses were down (in other words, was pointing out flaws in Venjix's plans). After Venjix decided that both General Crunch and General Shifter had become obsolete, they were blasted and destroyed. After sometime though, both generals were rebuilt and given their positions back in Venjix's evil machine order.

When Tenaya hacks into Venjix's database Doctor K reverses the deletion of Gem and Gemma, they shoot down the control tower with Crunch still inside.

In this way, Crunch is kind of voicing the audience watching the show.
- Depending on the opinion of the viewer, Crunch's statements may be insulting Venjix's intelligence/ common sense.
- General Crunch never made the action figure line that went along with the show. However, an unarticulated collectible figure was made for the Adventure Sets. It comes with the Trax Adventure Set and the Engine Adventure Set.
