Villain Character Conversion: Power Rangers Ninja Steel / Ninninger

In Ninninger, the villains weren't all together like in Ninja Steel. Kyuemon was mostly alone with the grunts and monsters in the series.

Galvanax / Gengetsu Kibaoni
He is the big bad of both series. In Ninja Steel, Galvanax is master warrior of Galaxy Warriors and out to get the Power Stars. He is defeated in first season and does not return in the 'super' season. Gengetsu Kibaoni is the master his underlings try reviving but do not do so until midway through the series. Ariake no Kata is also his wife. They have to gather fear to revive him.

Madame Odius / Kyuemon Shingetsu Kibaoni
Madame Odius is a general but a larger scope villain in Ninja Steel. Kyuemon is the main villain in Ninninger. Kyuemon is male, Kyuemon Izayoi was a ninja who held a huge proficiency in ninjutsu. Kyuemon went astray and betrayed his teacher, ultimately falling to the dark side. Kyuemon is still easily aggravated by flighty or playful persons like his former teacher Yoshitaka and Tsugomori. Madame Odius is sneaky and kidnapped Aidan and took his memories and made the android Aidan to trick Brody. 

Ripcon / Raizo Gabi
Raizo Gabi is a crude Spearman who desires conflict so much, he does not wish to be anywhere other than the battlefield. He's also dismissive of anyone he deems lower than his station, such as Kyuemon Izayoi. Ripcon makes fun of Brody and is Galavanax's loyal servant. He is destroyed by the Power Rangers halfway through the first season. 

Cosmo Royale/Baron Nero
Unique to Power Rangers, Cosmo Royale uses a costume of a villain of a series that ha syet to be adapted. Baron Nero is an Evil Army Shadow Line general in Toqger. Baron Nero disagrees with his fellow commanders' way of doing things, caring the most about resurrecting his lord and infesting the land, believing it should take priority over keeping the Emperor's future bride putting him at odds with Madame Noir. Cosmo Royale is the host of Galaxy Warriors in Ninja Steel and changes face to emotion, he makes the monsters grow. 

Badussa/Ariake no Kata
 Ariake No Kata was the last of Kibaoni's generals to be revived by Kyuemon Izayoi in the present day. Ariake is an imperious, shrewish woman who is extremely vain, often using the fear Kyuemon Izayoi gathers as a beauty aid to wipe away her wrinkles so she will remain beautiful when Gengetsu Kibaoni returns. Badussa was a captive of Sledge and becomes Madame Odius' assistant. 

Tynamon / Masakage Tsugomori
In Ninja Steel, he is a general who works for Madame Odius and steels Levi's voice. While he seems to be playful, its a cover for his inner darkness and he is wise enough to discover that Kyuemon is just a new member of the team and threatens to kill him if he tries to plot something that is against his master's will. His first act as commander was to create a competition for ninjas to lure in the Ninninger.

Brax / Mangestu Kibaoni
Mangetsu was thought to be the firstborn of Gengetsu Kibaoni and Ariake no Kata. After coming out of his mother, he started stealing snacks from children. Mangetsu pretends to be a buffoon, stealing snacks from children and being a poor warrior and a mama's boy. Brax was a famous fighter in Ninja Steel. He arrived as a guest on the Warrior Dome and starred as a contestant in the latest season of the hit show Galaxy Warriors. As the Ultrazord destroyed him, he called out to Badonna, apologizing for his failure to defeat the Rangers, before being consumed by an explosion.

Lord Draven / Juza Yumihari
Juza Yumihari is a Samurai General in the Kibaoni Army Corps who happens to be the most powerful of the group. He has also led the group for Dinosaur's Lord movie and the Ninnin Girls Vs Boys Final Wars. Juza is tasked for searching for the "Evil Dragon" said to dwell within go to a secret hidden village that only ninjas can reach. He also has threatened the village castle. Lord Draven is the main antagonist of the special episode "Dimensions in Danger" in Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel, who wants to destroy the multiverse. In order to achieve his goal, he has to kidnap Power Rangers throughout the multiverse and has an army of Robo Rangers.

Character Conversion: Power Rangers Ninja Steel / Ninninger

The crossover teamups were Power Rangers exclusive and did not have a counterpart in the Sentai. Victor and Monty also did not have counterparts.

Brody Romero/Takaharu Igasaki
Brody and Takaharu are similar in enthusiasm. Brody was kidnapped as a child and was a slave on the Galaxy Warriors spacehsip and then returned to Earth with little adjustment. Takaharu thinks before acting and as a big brother to the others. Takaharu is the brother of White, cousin to Pink, Blue and Yellow, and son/grandson to two other red (father and grandfather) while Brody is related to Gold (brother) and only one Red (father).

 Preston Tien / Yakumo Katou
Both into magic. Preston is happy go lucky, sometimes worried and jumps before reading when it comes to magic. Takumo learned his magic from England. He is sometimes pompous, cool-tempered rich boy type. Even though Preton is revealed to be rich, he is anything but. Yakumo had a rivalry with Takaharu, his cousin.

 Sarah / Kasumi Momochi
Kasumi and Sarah are both geniuses, both with mechanics. Kasumi is the cousin of Red and White, she is unable to read between lines or take a hint and she can be really sharp-tongued. Sarah does before thinking and multi-tasks and jumps to conclusions. Sarah tried splitting up her mother and Hayley's dad from getting together and felt her mother was a meddler.

Hayley / Fuuka Igasaki
Fuuka Igasaki is Takaharu's sister, she is optimistic and hard working young girl. Hayley is a realistist and a weary girl. She is in a relationship with Calvin and feels as if he could be more attentive. Fuuka doesn't like the antics of his father and brother. Hayley initially didn't think Redbot had feelings and learned the contrary. Hayley helped Sarah split up her father and Sarah's mom when they were getting along. She was the one who broke up with Calvin, later getting back together. 

Calvin / Nagi Matsuo
Nagi is a very friendly guy who initially didn't want to be a Ninninger. He is obsessed with getting licences and certifications for different things to make good use of. Nagi is also cousins with the other four. Calvin is sweet but somewhat forgetful and loves fixing cars initially not knowing how to drive but later learns. He is in a relationship with Hayley.

Adian "Levi Weston" Romero / Kinji Takigawa
Levi was introduced as a cowboy country singer everyone loved and Brody eventually grew to liked. Fans thought at first he would be Brody's brother until Aidan was introduced. It later was revealed that Madame Odius removed his memories of being Aidan and put it in an android. Kinji was born in America and is naive, having following others' orders and quickly apologizes should he had made a mistake, even tends to leave his opponents alone if they were busy with their situations. Kinji is the only one not related to the other Ninninger. 

Mick / Yoshitaka Igasaki
Mick is a shape-shifting alien friend of Brody on board of the Galaxy Warriors ship. Mick is from the Lions Galaxy and was a slave. He serves as their mentor and often makes them realize the errors of their ways. He briefly becomes a Ranger at the first season finale. Yoshitaka trained to become a ninja and, when the time came, he defeated his father, the Former Last Ninja, in battle. As a result of his age, Yoshitaka cannot fight the Kibaoni Army Corps like he used to, and has to wait for his grandchildren to surpass him as a ninja to become the next Last Ninja. He briefly becomes an Akaninger. Mick and Yoshitaka are two completely different characters.

 Dane Romero/ Tsumuji Igasaki
Tsumuji Igasaki is Takaharu and Fuuka's father, as well as Yakumo, Nagi, and Kasumi's uncle. Tsumuji is a happy-go-lucky man who shares similar traits with his son. He is also shown to be a little wise, having Takaharu take a rest while his teammates tried to get on his level. Aidan and Brody's dad Dane made the Power Stars out of Ninja Steel from space and fought Galavanax, being trapped in the Nexus Prism for nearly 11 years. They are different in personality as Tsumuji was goofy while Dane was not.
