The Stingwingers, like all other lesser enemies in the Power Rangers universe provide little challenge in a one-on-one battle against a respective Ranger and appear to lack any great intelligence. Their strength lies in sheer numbers and overwhelming force.
Their appearances vary depending on the situation. Some merely have talons for hands while others appear to have hands not unlike the typical humanoid monster, with the ability to summon stingers for combat Rookie in Red. All them, however, have the ability to fly (their wings akin to that of the common house fly) and fire energy blasts from their eyes.
It is later implied by Scorpius that the present form of the Stingwingers is not their original, suggesting that they may have gone through a metamorphosis in a cocoon like the one Scorpius used in his Scorpion Stinger spaceship.
In the finale of the season, Trakeena had bombs attached to them in a kamikaze-related plot to destroy the citizens of the space colony Terra Venture and the Galaxy Rangers' zords as an act of vengeance for her father and herself. Armed with bombs, the Stingwingers posed a much greater threat, both alone and in large numbers, to the Rangers and the colonists themselves. The Centaurus and Stratoforce Megazords were destroyed by the Stingwingers in a attempt to keep their forces out of the marooned colony.
The Stingwingers were eventually all destroyed by Trakeena's plan, leaving her without an army to command.
