Lothor

Lothor
Played By: Grant McFarland
Lothor was originally known as Kiya Watanable, a student at the Wind Ninja Academy who was banished to space after attempting to steal the Samurai Amulet from Miko. He vowed to return one day and did so with an army of Evil Space Ninjas at his disposal. One by one, Lothor attacked every Ninja Academy on Earth and captured its students. It is revealed in the finale that Lothor originally intended to have all his monsters and generals fall at the hands of the Ninja Rangers so that their powers were to feed the Abyss Of Evil. Once it is filled and his army starts to pour out, he decides to challenge the Ninja Rangers himself and uses the Samurai Amulet to steal their powers. However, the Wind Rangers come to the conclusion that they do not need their powers to defeat Lothor and harness their inner ninja powers to trap Lothor in the deep depths of the Abyss Of Evil.


Marah Kapri

Later in the series, it is revealed that Marah & Kapri were pretending to be bumbling idiots and are shown to be quite intelligent shown in their creation of three zords that nearly defeated the Ninja Rangers. Once it is shown that Lothor doesn’t care for them, they defect to the side of good and aid their “cousin” Cam in freeing all the Ninja Students. After Lothor is sent to the Abyss of Evil, they enroll in the Wind Ninja Academy as students.
