Power Rangers Megaforce Teaser (Power Morphicon 3)
Power Rangers Megaforce Cast (Power Morphicon 3)
Power Rangers Megaforce is the next season of Power Rangers. The season will celebrate the 20th anniversary of
Power Rangers in 2013. The Official Press Release has confirmed that Power Rangers Megaforce will be based on Goseiger.
Power Rangers Megaforce will be a completely new and original storyline based on 5 high school teenagers saving the world. The show will continue to use Sentai footage, but the story will be
original. This will be the anniversary season. Power Rangers Megaforce will surprise fans. The 2014 season will also be “crazy”.
Robo Knight (also known as GoseiKnight from Goseiger) will make an early appearance in the show. An article in Kidscreen confirms that historic Rangers will make an appearance in Power Rangers Megaforce. Thanks goes to Tommy Lawson (RangerCrew) for finding the article.
The second season, also known as Power Rangers Super Megaforce, will feature Gokaiger content. There is no confirmation whether the Gokaiger suits and morphers will be used to morph into the past rangers. We may see
Goseiger suits in both seasons. The Legend War will be shown in Megaforce. In the two marketing teasers that I saw, I noticed two easter eggs: Gokaioh and the Legend War.
Five high school students are called upon by the all-knowing Gosei to defeat a new evil determined to destroy planet Earth. They will become Power Rangers Megaforce. Using their cards, they will unlock all-new weapons, zords, and megazords. The battle has never been greater. The villains have never been more dangerous. And the Power Rangers have never been so strong.
Unlike Power Rangers Samurai, there will be last names and a city name in Power Rangers: Megaforce.
The mentor’s name is Gosei, which was named based on the fact that the cards have the word “Gosei”. We may be seeing the return of the Goseiger Cards. No confirmation on new cards, but we may be seeing them if Power Rangers Megaforce is a hybrid.
Admiral Malkor, Vrak, and Creepox are three of the primary villain names. Bandai Booth at Power Morphicon confirmed Vrak is the first form of Brajira. The Summary from Papercutz’s Power Rangers Megaforce Graphic Novel confirmed the name Admiral Malkor (Mon Drake from Goseiger). Admiral Mothron was the placeholder name for Mon Drake. The foot soliders will be called Loogies. Creepox is the current name for Dereputa (Goseiger).
Gosei and Tensou will be original characters. They will not be the sentai counterpart (Master and Datas). Gosei will resemble the head design used on the Gosei Morpher. The Power Rangers Megaforce Hot Wheels Action Set confirms that Gosei is based on Gosei Ultimate’s head design. For more information, read the announcement at RangerCrew Blog.
For centuries, groups of brave warriors known as Power Rangers have been called upon to protect our world from evil. Now, the future of humankind rests in the hands of a few ordinary teens with one extraordinary destiny. The 20th Season of Power Rangers will include flashbacks, weapons, and characters from previous seasons, and promises to be the most exciting season yet!
For centuries, the earth has been protected by a supernatural guardian being named Gosei and his robotic aide, Tensou. When the evil Warstar aliens begin their massive invasion, Gosei calls upon five teenagers to form the Power Rangers Megaforce! When the teens morph into Power Rangers, they gain superhuman strength, agility, and mastery over martial arts. With the aid of special Power Cards, the teens are able to control the earth’s elements to use in their defense, from crushing rock slides to powerful floods. With their newfound abilities, the Power Rangers Megaforce will prove that “Earth’s defenders never surrender!”

Power Rangers Megaforce Graphic Novels
Papercutz will be releasing two Power Rangers Megaforce Graphic Novels next year. Power Rangers Megaforce Issue 3 “Gamer’s End” will be released in January and Issue 4 “Panic in the Parade” will be released in April. You can pre-order both issues on Amazon. The cover and descriptions confirms a few names, including the placeholder name Theo and Admiral Mothron as the primary villain. For more information, check out the Graphics Novels page.
Issue 3 “Gamer’s End” Ranger Noah heads to a gaming con to cheer one of his buddies. But Creepox is there, and he lures Noah into a back room to show him a new video game that looks suspiciously like the convention floor. Unfortunately for the Rangers, it is not a game at all – the fight is on, and it’s being unwittingly controlled by their friend!
Issue 4 “Panic in the Parade” Why is the Yellow Ranger missing while her friends engage in an epic showdown with one of Admiral Mothron’s minions? Is the villain somehow using the most innocent Ranger as part of an even deadlier plan?

Power Rangers Megaforce Title Confirmed
DarkBlaze (RangerCrew) found an article with the confirmed name. The article briefly mentions about other plans that Saban Brands has for the anniversary season, including interactions with veteran fans. I’m looking forward to seeing Saban Brands’ execution of this idea.
Next year will mark the landmark 20th Anniversary of the Power Rangers brand, an occasion for which Saban Brands is already deep in preparation. Plans for the anniversary include a new series, “Power Rangers MEGAFORCE.”
Saban Brands plans to embrace the series’ cross-generational appeal during the anniversary by celebrating its past as well as its present and future.
Older fans will be able to participate in special events and online activities, while new products and the new show will attract younger fans.
“We’re in an exciting place as a brand. We look at the 20th anniversary not just as a celebration of the past, but as our entry into a third decade,” Dekel says.
With new series launching every two years that reinvent the brand and change its theme, Power Rangers looks to remain a force in children’s entertainment. “Just like our audience, we’re constantly reinventing ourselves, Dekel adds. “We can honestly say that after 20 years, this isn’t a fluke – kids really do identify with and engage with this show.”
