Hornitor was one of the two Ectomorphicon Titans under the employ of Ivan Ooze. Like its name suggests, the machine looked a lot like a giant hornet. The machine was bipedal and was capable of firing bolts of destructive energy from its antennae, it was also capable of flight. Although imposing, both machines along with their boss was imprisoned by Zordon and his Order of Meridian. 6000 years after his imprisonment Ivan was freed by Lord Zedd. After betraying him, Ivan enslaved the parents of Angel Grove to dig up the massive machines. Hornitor was the first one to be dug up and brought online and afterwards both machines wreaked chaos in the city. When the power rangers returned (they went to another planet to acquire a power to restore Zordon, who had been gravely injured by Ivan), they used their new zords to destroy Scorpitron. Enraged Ivan combined with Hornitor and took on the rangers himself. Both Ivan and Hornitor were destroyed when the rangers lured him into space in their Megafalconzord. They put him into the path of Ryan's Comet which killed him.
