Power Rangers Megaforce/Power Rangers Super Megaforce

Power Rangers Megaforce was the twentieth season of the Power Rangers franchise. It debuted in 2013 and ran for two seasons (42 episodes). In the second season the name changed to Power Rangers Super Megaforce to reflect the characters upgrade in powers. Like all Power Rangers shows it reused footage from Japanese Super Senati shows. Power Rangers Megaforce reused footage from Tensou Sentai Goseiger whilst Power Rangers Super Megaforce used footage from Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger.

The show begins with the evil Warstar aliens attacking planet Earth. Luckily Zordon had previously assigned the supernatural guardian Gosei (voiced by Geoffrey Dolan) to protect it. Gosei is assisted by his robot Tensou (voiced by Estevez Gillespie). To help them in protecting Earth, Gosei and Tensou recruit five teenagers and turn them into Power Rangers Megaforce:

  • Troy Burrows, the Megaforce Red Ranger (played by Andrew Gray)
  • Gia Moran, the Megaforce Yellow Ranger (played by Ciara Hanna)
  • Noah Carver, the Megaforce Blue Ranger (played by John Mark Loudermilk)
  • Emma Goodall, the Megaforce Pink Ranger (played by Christina Masterson)
  • Jake Holling, the Megaforce Black Ranger (palyed by Azim Rizk)

Later (Episode 8) Power Rangers Megaforce are aided by Robo Knight (voiced by Chris Auer) who awakens to help the Rangers when the Toxic Mutants awaken and threaten to pollute the environment with their monster Hisser.

By the second season, an alien armada led by Prince Vekar plans to invade the Earth, Gosei gives the Megaforce Rangers new Morphers and special keys to allow them to become the Super Megaforce Rangers and also imbues them with the power to transform into any past “Legendary” Power Rangers. During this process Jake switches Ranger colours from Black to Green.

The legendary rangers aspect is big in the second season, celebrating the franchise’s 20th anniversary, and through it the Rangers unlock various megazords of the past rangers as well as meeting a few past rangers too!

An alien named Orion (played by Cameron Jebo), whose home world was destroyed by the armada, then joins their ranks as the Super Megaforce Silver Ranger, and gets all the legendary Sixth Ranger powers along with those of Robo Knight.

Later, in a battle with the most powerful machines of evil, the Megazords of the Rangers as well as their Legendary Megazords are destroyed. After that, Troy and Orion enter the ship of Vrak and Vekar’s father the Warstar Emperor Marvo, fight him, and unleash the ship’s power, which destroys every other ship in the Armada. Later they both succeed in destroying Marvo and then they return to the ground. The Rangers then find that thousands of X-Borgs, the innumerable soldiers of The Armada, have been let loose on them!

At this point, all the Legendary Rangers, whose powers the Rangers have been using throughout the series, appear to help them. Together, all the Rangers destroy the X-Borgs, saving the Earth.
