- ―Mantevel to Olympius when he steals the Rescue Bird[src]
Mantevil is a praying mantis demon and the primary antagonist of the episode "Yesterday Again".
The first battle with Mantevil in Carter's vision.
Mantevil accompanied Olympius in an attack upon downtown Mariner Bay, when the Lightspeed Rangers came (with the Red Ranger being absent testing out the Mobile Armored Vehicle), Olympius summons an army of Batlings to take on the Rangers, the Rangers were quickly out matched, they tried to use the Rescue Bird, but Olympius caught it, Mantevil then blasts the Rangers and Olympius blasted the Rangers with their own Rescue Bird, wounding them completely, after words, both Olympius and Mantevil prepare to make the final strike on the four Rangers.
The second and real battle with Mantevil.
The Rangers (With the exception of the Red Ranger as he is testing the new Mobile Armored Vehicle) did battle with both Olympius and Mantevil, but they were quickly out matched, they summon the Rescue Bird but Olympius caught it, right before he could fire the Rescue Bird at the Rangers, the Red Ranger came to the rescue in the Mobile Armored Vehicle, Mantevil tried to run away, but he gets destroyed by a blast from the Red Ranger's Mobile Armor Vehicle. Jinxer then made Mantevel grow, the Rangers summon the Omega Megazord to battle Mantevil, but it was quickly out matched, they then summon the Lightspeed Solarzord and the Supertrain Megazord to aid the Omega Megazord in battle, with the combined powers of the three Megazords, the Rangers were finally able to destroy Mantevil.
Mantevil was a cocky monster that loves to toy around with his enemies, he is also a coward, as he tried to run away when the Red Ranger showed up.
