|This article is about a/an monster in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.|
Nimrod the Scarlet Sentinel is a hand/lightning rod-theme monster created by Lord Zedd and is the primary antagonist of the two-part episode "White Light".
With the Power Chamber weakening from Zordon and Alpha gone, Lord Zedd descided to create a super powerful monster from a stone fist statue, a hand/lighting rod monster called Nimrod the Scarlet Sentinel. She had two effeminate looking male assistants named AC and DC. Nimrod was extremely powerful and the added strength of AC and DC made all three of them even more deadly. They were able to topple the Thunder Megazord, leaving the Rangers temporarily defeated. While normally the Thunder Megazord would have gotten up and finished them off with the Thunder Saber, like against Robogoat and Stag Beetle, they had run out of energy due to the Command Center shutting down (as seen later in The Wedding). The Thunderzords were unable to continue battle, the Command Center being shut down caused a deficiency of power. After Tommy gained the powers of the White Ranger, he was able to take on the monsters. Nimrod and her cohorts AC and DC were the first to face the new White Tigerzord and the first to be defeated by the Mega Tigerzord.
Nimrod is a cold and sinister monster, she takes great pride in destroying the Rangers.

Nimrod with AC/DC
- In the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie game for the Sega Genesis, the monsters were referred to as S. Sentinel Ring, S. Sentinel Ear, and S. Sentinel Neck, a reference to the Dairanger names of the Three Ladies: "Lady Ring", "Lady Earring", and "Lady Necklace".
- Nimrod is one of the strongest and most powerful monsters in the entire Mighty Morphin Power Rangers series, having a wide arsenal of abilities, being able to outmatch the Thunder Megazord and being more then a match for the new White Tigerzord, it tooked the power of the Mega White Tigerzord to take out Nimrod.
- "AC" and "DC" mean "alternative current" and "direct current" (this is also the origin of the name of the popular rock band AC/DC), and the three of them have electrical powers.
- It's unclear whether AC and DC ceased to exist or retreated when the Scarlet Sentinel was destroyed (in the Dairanger episode where the footage was taken from, the other two villains had previously been killed and were temporarily revived). The former is more likely.
- Nimrod the Scarlet Sentinel is probably named after the Marvel Comics character Nimrod, a Sentinel from an alternate future, which is also red.
- The sentai Versions of AC and DC were female, and they along with Nimrod were sisters.
- Three Ladies - Super Sentai counterpart in Dairanger. See comparison page. (Lady Ring = main body; Lady Earring, Lady Necklace = bodyguards)
