Queen Bansheera
Voiced By: Diane Salinger
Queen Bansheera was off at unknown parts at the beginning of the series. She left Diabolico to lead her forces until he is destroyed and her son, Prince Olympius took over for a short time up until the Demon Spellbinder is able to bring her to this dimension. However, the spell was interrupted by the Lightspeed Rangers and only half of her body was able to make it through. She eventually was able to regain her bodily form after stealing Vypra’s life force. After regaining her bodily form, Queen Bansheera is shown to not care for any of her followers and used them to accomplish her goals which was to open the gates to the Shadow World and raise an army of demons into the real world. Her plans fail however and she is sent to the Shadow World herself by her once loyal follower Diabolico.

Diabolico
Voiced By: Neil Kaplan
Diabolico led Queen Bansheera’s forces while she was away at unknown parts and tried in any way to take over Mariner Bay. He even went as far as challenging the Lightspeed Rangers himself and ended up being destroyed by the Lightspeed Solarzord. He does come back, however, thanks to Vypra resurrecting him and starts a rivalry with Prince Olympius. After learning that Queen Bansheera thinks that he is expendable, he leaves her services but is taken back and brainwashed by Queen Bansheera to battle the Lightspeed Rangers and is transformed into a Super Demon. He succeeds in destroying and damaging most of the Lightspeed Rangers Megazords but is destroyed by the newly built Lifeforce Megazord. Diabolico is last seen in the Shadow World aiding the Lightspeed Ranger by blasting Queen Bansheera into the Shadow World.

Prince Olympius
Voiced By: Michael Forest
Prince Olympius came to be after Impus gained the Star Power after Diabolico is destroyed and took over the task of taking over Mariner Bay. Prince Olympius is shown to have many new abilities after gaining the Star Power including being able to send the Lightspeed Rangers to a dimension where his demons were more powerful during giant battles. Prince Olympius, after feeling threatened by Loki & Vypra tricked them into a false sense of comfort and used his monster Vilevine to bury them alive. This motivated them to resurrect Diabolico and the two started a fierce rivalry. Prince Olympius is eventually upped by Diabolico during one of his plans to destroy the Lightspeed Rangers and was trapped in the Shadow World for a short time up until he absorbed the monsters energies which gave him a powered up form. He is thought to be destroyed by the Lightspeed Rangers but was only injured. After regaining his strength, he brings a captured Diabolico to the Skull Cavern and is sent alongside a brainwashed Diabolico to battle the Lightspeed Rangers. He is destroyed however but is revived as a Super Demon. He succeeds in destroying and damaging most of the Lightspeed Rangers Megazords but is destroyed by the newly built Lifeforce Megazord.

Played By: Benton Jennings
Jinxer is the one responsible for bringing monster cards to life as well as making monsters grow. Jinxer is shown to care deeply for Prince Olympius due to him attempting to free him from the Shadow World when Diabolico traps him there and takes care of him when he is severely injured by the Lightspeed Rangers. During Queen Bansheera’s final assault of Mariner Bay, he sneaks Batlings into the Aquabase and pilots the Omega Megazord to get stones in place for a ceremony that will open the gates to the Shadow World. He is presumably destroyed after the destruction of the Omega Megazord.
