Full list of appearances
Zurgane is the main general in Lothor's army. He is a karakuri robot, which is controlled by an alien bug inside the shell. This is never shown in Ninja Storm, though is shown in the Zurgane action figure in the US toyline.
He enjoys destroying everything in the service of Lothor. He is actually a small alien ant-like creature that controls the much larger samurai-like robotic suit, as revealed in the toyline, but this was never shown on the series. He likes nothing but evil.
Even though the Thunder Rangers were on Lothor's side at the time, he despised them, for they got the glory and attention that he wanted from Lothor. He is always mocked by his fellow crewmates because he doesn't have a mouth or eyes. Zurgane is known to be Lothor's technical advisor as he fixes objects on the ship and builds his own evil Zords and even uses robotic monsters. Zurgane's powers are teleportation, energy projection, and the ability to extend swords from his shoulders.
Zurgane was destroyed by Vexacus, another of Lothor's generals, in episode 34, "General Deception, Part II". Vexacus sought absolute power over Lothor's forces, and later collaborated with Marah and Kapri to destroy Motodrone and Shimazu. After the destruction of Zurgane's latest Zord by the Power Rangers, Zurgane was left in bad shape. Vexacus took advantage of that in order to perform a sneak attack, destroying him. When the Abyss was open Zurgane returned, only to be destroyed again by Shane.
He had later returned again from the reopened Abyss in Power Rangers: Dino Thunder to serve Lothor, as he was partnered with Elsa of Mesogog's army. He was destroyed by the Thunder Rangers and Tommy Oliver.
