The Stingwingers are the insectoid army of Scorpius and later Trakeena. Not unlike past foot soldiers, the Stingwingers provide little challenge in a one-on-one battle against a respective Ranger and appear to lack any great intelligence. However, like past foot soldiers, their strength lies in sheer numbers and overwhelming force. Their appearances vary depending on the situation. Some merely have talons for hands while others appear to have hands not unlike the typical humanoid monster. All them, however, have the ability to fly (their wings akin to that of the common house fly) and fire energy blasts from their eyes.
It's later implied by Scorpius that the present form of the Stingwingers is not their original, suggesting that they may have gone through a metamorphosis in a cocoon, not unlike the one Trakeena would enter to reach her full potential. In the finale of the season, Trakeena had bombs attached to them in a kamikaze-related plot to destroy the citizens of the Terra Venture and the Galaxy Rangers as an act of vengeance for her father and herself.
The armed with bombs, the Stingwingers posed a greater threat, both alone and in large numbers, to the Rangers and the colonists themselves. The Centaurus and Stratoforce Megazord were destroyed by the Stingwingers in a attempt to keep their forces out of the marooned colony. The Stingwingers were eventually all destroyed by the Trakeena's plan, leaving her without an army to command.
