Hardtochoke was sent by Deviot with his captive Zords' remote to Terra Venture to test their power. He shot energy bolts from his hands. He attacked the Rangers with the evil zords before they turned on him. He was destroyed by the Galaxy Megazord.
Hardtochoke was later resurrected by Hexuba and fought the Rangers in a Terra Venture parking lot near some mountains. It took a combination of Leo and Maya's Galaxy Quasar Launchers, Damon's Transblaster, Karone's Beta Bow, and Mike's Magna Blaster to destroy Hardtochoke.
