|This article is about a/an villain in Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger.|
Grifforzer (グリフォーザー Gurifōzā?) is a lion-faced, griffin-themed knight who serves as Witch Bandora's General and is the frequent rival of TyrannoRanger. He fights with the Griffocalibur IV sword and flies with the help of his retractable wings.
Despite initially being mute, Grifforzer is still capable of commanding the Golem Soldiers and Dora Monsters through his vicious personality and is a brilliant tactician with amazing strength as well, being able to fight on the same level as Daizyuzin without being destroyed. With the return of his wife Lamy, Grifforzer was granted the ability to speak by Bandora in exchange for Lamy joining up with them. To Lamy's chagrin, the first words he spoke were of how women had no place on the battlefield and that she should return home and do laundry instead. Regardless of his aversion to having his wife fight along side him, the two became a powerful force on the battlefield and in their first fight together, Grifforzer and Lamy (along with assistance from an enlarged Dragon Ranger) were able to defeat a power deprived Daizyuzin and hurl him into a volcanic fissure.
Neo-Grifforzer is an evil "embodiment clone" created by Space War God Burodosu in the film Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger vs. Go-Busters: Dinosaur Great Battle! Farewell, Eternal Friends, manifested from the regret of the Bandora Gang in their failure to defeat the Zyurangers.
