Jimmers are the robot footsoldiers of the Armed Brain Army Volt. Their primary weapon are multi-use hatchets, the heads of which are equipped with a blaster cannon for shooting attacks as well as the abiity to be be launched out on wires to grapple opponents. Jimmers are also able to fire lightning blasts from their eyes and can have extra hardware installed into them to aid in the execution of Volt's experiments such as an audio system to broadcast certain sounds. . The most dangerous ability possessed by the Jimmers however is their ability to continue moving even when broken apart, allowing the dismembered pieces to continue attacking such as a severed hand strangling an opponent or a decapitated head firing it's optic blasts from midair.
In episode 4, Doctor Mazenda created a new model of Jimmer named "Dummy Men" which are able to disguise themselves as humans in order to to perform covert operations. One such Dummy Man in episode 13 malfunctioned when exposed to a poison gas sample Volt was developing, causing him to break free of Volt's control and flee. Found by Megumi and Colon, the rogue Dummy Man fell in love with Colon and ultimately sacrificed his own life to save her from Poison Gas Brain Beast.
Several Jimmers were part of an army of past enemy grunts that were fought by the Gokaigers in Los Dark's ghost dimension which housed the 1500 spirits of the villains defeated by the Super Sentai. After losing some of their number in an initial skirmish, the remaining members from each grunt group merged to form the Combined Combatant. Though the stronger opponent, the Combined Combatant proved to be unstable due to internal conflicting among the grunts composing him over who got to finish the pirates off. Taking advantage, the Gokaigers used the Battle Fever J Ranger Keys to destroy the Combined Combatant with the Penta Force cannon.
