|This article is about a/an villain in Power Rangers Ninja Storm.|
Vexacus is a shark-themed bounty hunter and a rival and "sworn enemy" of Lothor. He wields a sword and a fan blade in battle, and can summon a giant "land shark".
Vexacus first appeared in the two-part episode Shane's Karma, when he comes to Earth hunting an alien - a Karmanian - who can give her powers to someone when she dies. He fails in his attempt to capture these powers, and ends up stranded when his ship is shot down by Shane. Vexacus becomes Lothor's head general, and often clashes with Zurgane. He and Shimazu later plotted to defeat Lothor and Zurgane and take over their forces.
He later does the same to Motodrone in the episode A Gem of a Day when the other general threatens to reveal his plans, and in the episode Down and Dirty, he plans to eliminate Shimazu, but is beaten to it by Marah and Kapri.
In the two-part series finale episode Storm Before the Calm, Vexacus was stabbed in the back and enlarged by Marah and Kapri, who had arranged for his destruction at the hands of the Rangers after overhearing his plans. As a giant, he easily defeated the Thunderstorm Megazord and destroyed the Mammoth Zord with his Land Shark, but was fatally injured by the Thunder Megazord, the subsequent explosion destroying both he and the Megazord, though the Thunder Rangers escaped just in time.
He was one of the enemies released from the Abyss of Evil when it opened, but was quickly defeated by Shane in his Tri-Battlizer (like the other Generals in Lothors army, it is unknown if he is destroyed, or he survived).
An alternate universe has Vexacus as a hero. He is among those who help Mayor Lothor fight the Evil Ninja Rangers.
Vexacus acts very much like a bounty hunter seen in shows, he is a ruthless and cold hearted being that will destroy anyone in his path. He is cold, cunning and will work for no one (except for himself).

Behind the Scenes
- Vexacus is portrayed by Michael Hurst.
- Vexacus in the only villain in Power Rangers Ninja Storm to be based on an aquatic animal, the rest of the villains are based off of land animals, although snakes (which Kapri is based on) can swim, they are clasifyed as land animals.
- While Vexacus isn't exactly one of the most evil villain in Power Rangers Ninja Storm and is actually nowhere near as dark as, for instance, Queen Bansheera, Venjix Virus, Kamdor, Serrator, Octomus the Master, or Master Org (which makes sence as Power Rangers Ninja Storm is one of the more light-hearted shows in the Power Rangers franchise), he is one of the more dangerous and ruthless villains in the Power Rangers franchise, as he destroys two villains on-screen and actually plans to upstage Lothor as leader.
- Unlike his Sentai Counterpart, Seventh Spear, Sandaaru, who was loyal to his master, Tau Zant, Vexacus and his later master Lothor had a rivalry in the past, leading to Vexacus plotting against Lothor, intending to later betray and then either kill or overthrow him. He is the third villain with this distinction, with the first being Darkonda, the second being Deviot, the fourth being Shimazu, the fifth being Imperious, the sixth being Serrator, and the seventh being Madame Odius.
- His name is a pun on vexatious, which means causing or tending to annoy someone.
- Vexacus can be seen as a member of the audience of Galaxy Warriors in Power Rangers Ninja Steel.
