"Phantom Beast General Scorch, with the Spirit of the Avalon Dragon!"
Scorch is the leader of the Phantom Beasts and posesses the Avalon Dragon Animal Spirit. His goal is to make Dai Shi become their new leader and become the Phantom Beast King. He possesses Rinzin power like his fellow Generals.
Along with Whiger, Snapper, and five other Phantom Beasts they had attempted to overthrow Dai Shi during the Beast War. The resulting feud had caused the attack on the humans to stand on weak ground. With the finding of the Crystal Eyes in which the Generals were contained they resolved to ally completely with Dai Shi, plotting to make him Phantom Beast King and eliminate his humanity, ensuring the success of the Final Beast Wars. After Whiger was stripped of rank and destroyed, Scorch started to doubt Dai Shi's ability to suppress his human host due to Camille. This led to he and Snapper both secretly scheming to do something about it, from sabotaging Camille's plan with Grinder to sending Sonimax, Osiris, and Lepus to assassinate her. It was after the three failed, that Dai Shi beats Scorch while assuring him he's still in control. When Jarrod and Dai Shi end up separated, Scorch, along with Snapper, battles the Rangers, Jarrod and Camille and is wounded by the Jungle Pride Charge following Snapper's destruction.
He survived to spearhead Dai Shi's army for the final battle, easily defeating RJ and Dominic, along with Masters Phant, Swoop and Finn, before being destroyed by the Rangers' Triple Claw attack. Scorch was revived by Dai Shi for the final Beast War, but was destroyed again by Casey, along with Dai Shi's army, by the Power Rangers and the Pai Zhuq Masters.
- Scorch is a third of the concept of his original Sentai counterpart. The other third of the concept was used for Dai Shi (the golden dragon spirit concept), while the remaining third (the human part) was left unadapted for Power Rangers.
- His destruction is noted by Casey to R.J. in a rare comedic matter. (R.J.: "Scorch?" Casey: "Scorched.")
- Long - Super Sentai counterpart in Gekiranger. See comparison page. - tries to sacrifice Dai Shi/Jarrod's Sentai counterpart, Rio, to make the world more interesting. Scorch, on the other hand actually appeared to be genuinely loyal to Dai Shi.
