While Hollywood filmakers were making a horror flick in Charterville, Vexor ordered Jara, Noxic, and Typhus to summon a monster to cause havoc on their behalf. The mantis-like monster called Graxxis was summoned at the suggestion of Noxic. Graxxis was mistakened for the leading monster of the horror flick. After he grew tired of the director's abuse, he went out to cause real trouble in the city. His rampage was ultimately stopped by Drew's Stinger Drill. In battle, Graxxis could release green lasers (when angry) and launch a sharp stinger-tipped rope from its' mouth. He was released again during the "Curse of the Shadow Borg" saga by Vexor where he was one of the first victims of Drew's Thunder Stinger (before upgrading to Mega-Blue).
