Grifforzer Jr

Grifforzer Jr. (Grifforzer and Lamy's son.)


Grifforzer's sword Griffocalibur

Grifforzer (グリフォーザー Gurifōzā) is a manticore/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.

Character History

Despite initially being mute (albeit able to grunt), 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.

Unlike most sentai field commanders that died at the hands of the Red Ranger, Grifforzer was simply sealed off. While inside of the urn, Lamy gives birth to a son which Bandora adores.
