Virox is the third Insectoid to invade Earth by Admiral Malkor in an attempt to conquer it, he gets fought by the Mega Rangers in the third episode "Going Viral". He is stinkbug-themed.

Character History

In a changing of tactics expected to outmaneuver the human resistance, Vrak intended to use his skills to outpace the reaction of the Mega Rangers against Warstar. Virox is an Insectoid who uses a virus to infect humans into becoming Loogies. Unlike Scaraba and Yuffo, Virox relies on defense rather than either offense or intelligence to defeat his enemies.

After Vrak claims the Insectoids can conquer the planet without an army, Malkor allows him to proceed with his plan despite Creepox's protests, intrigued to see if his subordinate's cleverness and competence are high enough for such a plot to succeed.

Noah figures out that his large mouth is his weak spot, and fires at it with his Shark Bowgun, but Virox blocks it with his large mouth armor. He is destroyed by the Mega Blaster, but is enlarged by Zombats.

The Rangers try to use Mega Strike on him, but Virox is immune to the Gosei Great Megazord's sword and steals it to use against them.

Luckily, the Sea Brothers Zords arrive just in time to stop him. The Megaforce Rangers combine into the Sea Megazord to destroy him.
