"So you're the Black Ranger? Relax. Soon you'll be under the control of the great Spellbinder."
―Spellbinder when Chase confronts him[src]
"Wait."
―Spellbinder's final words before his death[src]
Spellbinder is a crow-like magic-themed monster who serves under Sledge.

History

Spellbinder makes his first appearance at Moana's shop stealing a powerful pendant. He then proceeds to use the pendant's power to place Chase, who was watching the shop for Moana, under his spell. Spellbinder makes a hasty retreat. While the Dino Charge Rangers do intercept him, the interference provided by the growing spell on Chase allows him to escape and the heroes to become confused as to why Chase is behaving is so strangely.

Back on Sledge's ship, the bounty hunter angrily points out that Spellbinder had not claimed any Energems and threatens to throw him in solitary confinement. Spellbinder retorts that he did managed to ensnare the Black Ranger, but that his spell takes time to grow. Upon hearing the mission was a partial success, his master decides to give him a second chance, sending Wrench and Curio along to ensure the job was done.

Using the distraction provided by his superiors, Spellbinder manages to ensnare all of the remaining Rangers except Shelby. Chase, now fully under Spellbinder's command, arrives and is ordered to destroy Shelby. However, she helps him overcome the control just long enough to blast the outlaw and break the spell by having him over an improvised skateboard. The Rangers fend off Wrench and Curio and Spellbinder is destroyed with the newly acquired Dino Spike. He is swiftly revived by Sledge's Magna Beam, but is made short work of by the Dino Charge Megazord: Para-Raptor Formation.

After his destruction, Sledge angrily comments that he could have collected Spellbinder's bounty instead of sending him to fight the Rangers. However, he learns that the pendant Spellbinder stole survived, and realizing it still may have some power left and orders Wrench to save it. Breaking Black

Spellbinder's pendant was later combined with Gold Digger's coins to create a chimera-like monster known as Spell Digger. Riches and Rags

Personality

Spellbinder is an opportunistic outlaw who is willing to achieve his mission at any cost and to do so with class.
