Original Villain Legacy

RangerLegacy

Lothor And Mesogog

The picture above is a villain from the upcoming season of Power Rangers named Sledge. Sledge is a unique villain due to the fact that he is an original villain made for Power Rangers and did not appear in Dino Charge’s sentai counterpart Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger.

In this article, I will be going through every villain specifically made for Power Rangers.


MMPR


Lord Zedd

Lord Zedd
Lord Zedd is introduced as the boss of Rita Repulsa who takes over as main villain after seeing Rita fail at conquering Earth multiple times.

Lord Zedd was most likely created to give the show a fresh new outlook pertaining to the villain footage so that they would not have to rely on the same Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger villain footage over and over again.


Turbo


Divatox - Hilary Shepard Zonette

Divatox
Divatox is a space pirate who travels to Earth to exact revenge on the Turbo Rangers for ruin her wedding plans.

Divatox was most likely created due to the fact that a character similar to her named Zonette in Gekisou Sentai Carranger had a very revealing outfit.


In Space


Dark Specter Javious

Dark Specter
Dark Specter serves as the Monarch Of Evil as well as the head of The United Alliance Of Evil.

Dark Specter was most likely used to take advantage of the Maligore costume created for Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie as well as having a more creative looking villain than his counterpart King Javious who was literally a giant eye.


Brainwashed Astronema Shibolena

Astronema
Astronema is the crowned Princess Of Evil who is later revealed to be the long lost sister of the Red Space Ranger Andros.

Like Divatox, Astronema was probably created due to the fact that her sentai counterpart Shibolena from Denji Sentai Megaranger had too much of a revealing outfit.


Lost Galaxy


Scorpius

Scorpius
Scorpius is a giant bug-like alien who craved many powerful items including the Quasar Sabers and The Lights Of Orion.

Scorpius was most likely created to better match the bug theme of the early Seijuu Sentai Gingaman monsters.


Trakeena Shelinda

Trakeena
Trakeena is the daughter of Scorpius who eventually becomes the main villain after her father is killed in battle.

Trakeena was most likely created to fit the bug theme of Scorpius and the Stingwingers and/or to have a female villain that is more covered up unlike her Seijuu Sentai Gingaman counterpart Shelinda.


Time Force


Ransik Gluto

Ransik
Ransik is a mutant criminal who travels to the year 2001 to conqueror Earth before the establishment of Time Force.

Ransik was most likely created to give Time Force a more menacing villain due to the fact his Mirai Sentai Timeranger counterpart Don Dolnero didn’t really fit the bill. However, his suit is used for the comic relief villain Gluto.


Wild Force


Master Org

Master Org
Master Org desires to pollute the Earth.

Master Org was most likely created to give Wild Force a staple main villain, an aspect that was not present in Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger.
His suit was used from recycled Gosei Sentai Dairanger villain costumes


Ninja Storm


Lothor Lothorzord

Lothor
Lothor is a banished space ninja warlord who plans to eradicate every ninja on the planet Earth.

Lothor was most likely created due to the fact his sentai counterpart, Tao Zanto was immobile for most of the Ninpu Sentai Hurricanger. However, Tao Zanto’s final form is used for the Lothorzord.


Dino Thunder


Mesogog Zelzord

Mesogog
Mesogog desires to transform the Earth back to the Mesozoic Era.

Mesogog was most likely created to give Dino Thunder an active villain due to the fact that Bakuryuu Sentai Abaranger main villain Dezumozorlya was inactive for most of the series.


Elsa Long Hair Jannu

Elsa
Elsa serves as a commander in Mesogog’s Army.

Elsa was most likely created to match Mesogog’s darker clothing tone, an aspect that her counterpart Jannu was not equipped with.


SPD


Omni

Omni
Omni is the true leader of the Troobian Empire who orders his servant Emperor Gruumm to construct a body for him.

Omni does not have a counterpart in SPD’s Sentai Counterpart Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger but does share many similar traits with the main villain Dezumozorlya from Bakuryuu Sentai Abaranger.


Emperor Gruumm Broodwing

Emperor Gruumm
Emperor Gruumm is the figurehead leader of the Troobian Empire.

Emperor Gruumm was most likely created to give SPD a staple main villain, an aspect that Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger did not really have unless you count the recurring villain Agent Abrella whose costume was used for the SPD minor villain Broodwing.


Mora Lije Morgana Sucubus

Mora/Morgana
Mora/Morgana serves as a monster maker and field commander in the Troobian Empire.

Mora/Morgana shares many similar traits with the Bakuryuu Sentai Abaranger villain Lije and uses the battle armor from the Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger villain-of-the-week Succubus.


Operation Overdrive


Flurious Gajah

Flurious
Flurious is an ice-themed villain who desires to obtain the Corona Aurora.

Flurious was most likely created to better match the villain Moltor, a trait that his GoGo Sentai Boukenger counterpart Gajah did not share. However, they do share a final form.


Norg

Norg
Norg is a yeti whose home is taken over by Flurious.

Norg was most likely created to give Flurious someone to interact with due to him not doing really much of anything up until the finale.


Miratrix Short Hair Shizuka

Miratrix
Miratrix aides Kamdor in finding the jewels of the Corona Aurora.

Miratrix was strangely created even though her GoGo Sentai Boukenger counterpart Shizuka blended better with Kamdor’s bluish costume.


Thrax

Thrax
Thrax is the son of Rita Repulsa & Lord Zedd.

Thrax was most likely created to give the 15th anniversary episode “Once A Ranger” a closer connection to the older seasons, primarily Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers.


Jungle Fury


Dai Shi Spirit Dai Shi

Dai Shi
Dai Shi is an ancient Dragon Spirit who desires that animals rule the planet instead of humans.

Dai Shi was most likely created to give Jungle Fury a stapler main villain. His final form however is the Juken Sentai Gekiranger’s character Long’s Final Form.


RPM


Venjix Body Generation 13 Venjix Virus Venjix Final Body

Venjix
Venjix is a computer virus who desires to take over the entire planet.

Venjix was most likely created to give RPM a stapler main villain. A few of his mobile forms however are important villains from Engine Sentai Go-onger.


Tenaya 15 Kegalesia

Tenaya
Tenaya is a Venjix Hybrid who eventually finds out she is the long-lost-sister of Ranger Operator Series Black Dillon.

Tenaya was most likely created due to the fact that the female character in Engine Sentai Go-onger Kegalesia looked too water-themed.


Dino Charge/Dino Super Charge


Sledge 

Sledge
Sledge is a bounty hunter in search of the powerful Energems.

Sledge is a completely new design that took the place of Deboss from Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger.


Heckyl Snide

Heckyl/Snide
Heckyl is a prisoner in Sledge’s Solitary Confinement Cell that becomes the main villain after Sledge is presumably destroyed.

Heckyl is a completely original character but his alter ego Snide is a costume reuse of a villain from the Kyoryuger Dino Movie named Neo-Geildon who is a updated character of the Sentai Counterpart of Zeltrax.


Ninja Steel


 

Cosmo Royale
Cosmo Royale is the host of Galaxy Warrior

Though his head is original, his body is taken from the character Baron Nero from Ressha Sentai ToQger.
