Power Rangers Megaforce - Who's Crying Now? - Episode Review

Thanks to FuryDiamond of

Episode Summary:
Two bullies (hunky guy and a big 'Bulk' guy) scare students in the hall and bump into Troy and block his way. Emma and Noah arrive to a circle where they are looking at the three. The bullies ask if he is going to cry and Troy asks he sees an tears. They leave, saying Troy boring them, Noah asks he stays calm. Troy says they don't bother him. The bullies then pick on a little boy, apparently the high school is also an elementary school. Troy holds back the bully's hand and saves the little boy's insect. The bullies leave. At the Warstar ship, Vrak asks Creepox if he is up to the challenge even though he thinks he failed with the Red Ranger before.

The Bullies go after Howie, the little boy and confront Creepox. The two bullies cower from Creepox. Howie stands up to Creepox. The bullies run away. Yellow and Black save Howie and Howie leaves as they fight Creepox. They fight in a warehouse. He de-morphs Gia and Jake. Creepox leaves. Emma, Noah and Troy look for the others but they are unconscious and Gosei is no help. They finally find them. Emma stays with the duo while Troy and Noah go after Creepox, who is launching hundreds of meteors towards the city. They confront Creepox. We flashback to the last episode that Troy and Creepox fought. The two morph and fight Creepox.

Creepox takes down Noah and keeps fighting Troy. Troy goes down. Creepox throws an attack at Troy and Noah holds it. Noah and Troy fall down a cliff and de-morph. Noah is hurt, Troy says he will exploit his anger and use it against him. Noah says he wishes he could help. Creepox arrives and demands to be fought. Troy morphs once again and fights Creepox. Creepox makes him dimorph once again, goes to strike Troy but Troy has the Dragon Sword to defend him.

Creepox is over Troy and his Dragon Sword, he asks for him to cry, he says the same "You see any tears" thing and spin-morphs and fights him one on one. Vrak appears in his outside armor (which he didn't use last week) and sees the two but they don't notice him of course. The two slash each other but Creepox goes down. He is devastated and explodes. Emma, Jake and Gia walk over to where they are and come to Noah's aid. They applaud Troy, Above them, they don't notice Vrak, who calls Creepox a fool and calls his Zombats to make Creepox huge.

The four morph and call Gosei Great. The Megazord goes down and Troy asks for help. Gosei tells him it is time for the Ultra Gosei Great Megazord. Out of a card in the sky comes out the Sea Brothers, Sky Brothers and Land Brothers. All nine zords combine with Gosei Great to make the Ultra Gosei Great Megazord. Creepox sends a big spinning attacks towards the Rangers and they counter and destroy Creepox. The better Megaforce theme plays.

The teens recap as they walk in a park. Jake celebrates by dancing a bit like Zack. Gia hands him her bookpack and tells him not to quit his dayjob. They enter the Froyo place and the bully Roy stops them and helps Howie's bug, since the three are now friends. Troy wonders what is next. Jake tells him to relax and enjoy the win.

Episode Review:
WAAAAYYY better than last week's episode. It is reminiscent of MMPR first season of starting out as a standard episodic episode with no arc and have arc stuff happen and then end on a high note. The bullies being friends with the nerd Howie was a bit corny but eh, they live in this plastic happy world. And I have NO idea why bullies want Troy to cry. Does a hot model guy make people want him to cry? Not seeing the context, but oh well. Word is that next week there is no new episode and that the Gosei Knight episode will air March 30th. But TV says it is a repeat at 12pm.

Non-Super Sentai Power Ranger Exclusive Artwork In Action Card Game Cards

When the Power Rangers Action Card Game came out, we fans (or I, on my own) assumed that the artwork was only coming from Super Sentai Dice-O (2010-now). Some cards are mixed with photoshoots of Mighty Morphin, RPM, Samurai and Lost Galaxy. But recently it has been revealed they are also using artwork from Ranger Strike (2006-now). Funny enough, American Power Rangers fans saw Ranger Strike artwork with the Power Rangers Collector Card Game back in 2008 but there was only one series and was quickly cancelled. This week Bandai America's ACG Facebook page revealed cards for Gold Samurai Ranger (Mega Mode) and Red Dragon Fire Ranger.
Red Dragon Fire Ranger is from Mystic Force only and did not appear in Mahou Sentai Magiranger. So this is new artwork exclusively made for the American card game. Red Dragon Fire Ranger is a Battlizer, which were only in Power Rangers than Super Sentai. SPD Battlizer is the only one to appear in Sentai that AFTER it appeared in Power Rangers, having appeared in Magiranger vs. Dekaranger. The SPD Battlizer did get artwork for the Rangerstrike and Dice-O cards so fans suspect we would only get those. In fact, the SPD Battlizer appeared in the CCG (2008).

I am not surprised to see Mega Mode, I figured they would make artwork for them. But it has been pointed out that the same pose of Gold was used in a Super Samurai poster--meaning it is a photo just enhanced with photoshop. I am pleasantly surprised to see the Battlizer though. Other than SPD Battlizer, I hope we get the original In Space Battlizer, Lost Galaxy Battlizer, Ninja Storm Battlizer, and Shogun Mode. I doubt we will get Lightspeed Rescue Red's because it was more of a bike-related armor but we'll see.

Animals in Super Sentai (2013 Edition)

Contrary to popular belief, not many Super Sentai are animal-inspired. Out of the 37 series, there is only about 19 or so series that has animals, mythical creatures or dinosaurs. I have updated this intensively since the first time I posted this in 2008 and plan to make a new post every year when there are more animals added.

If you are looking for the animal from Power Rangers, I am referring to the original intention in Super Sentai. Power Rangers are notorious for changing the animal's identity.
