Power Rangers Megaforce - Robo Knight - Episode Review

 Pictures from Rangercrew/Samuraicast/Megaforcecast
The Rangers go on a field trip to a big field to look for specimens and stuff for Mr. Hurley's class. Jake as always is eager to be with Gia but can't. Hurley then bumps himself with a rake after saying to be observant. Malkor orders Vrak to convince mutants to go after the Rangers. Noah and Emma spot an old chemical plant and see that toxic sludge keep seeping into the water.

The teens spot a big foot footprint and the field trip is over. Hurley says it is Big Foot, Jake doesn't believe it. Noah checks the sludge in his lab, Troy is concerned about the footprint. Bluefur and Bigs are an underground cave and plan to stop the humans, as revenge for the sludge. Vrak make them an offer. Bluefur is going to call a mutant to help. Back with the teens, Gia isn't there so Jake heads to find him.
Jake meets Gia at the lockers and are about to go to Ernie's together when they get called by Gosei. The five head to the city where Tensou sent them the coordinates. The mutant appears and faces the team. Bluefur and Bigs appear. Bluefur makes a footprint and the gang figure out the print was him. Bigs blames them for the toxins and destroy their environment. The MotD attacks them and Blue fights him individually. Yellow and Black get Bluefur and Red and Pink fight the blobby Bigs.
The five are gathered up and toxic waste is poured on them and they fall before the three mutants. A ball of light lands in a tunnel and Robo Knight walks towards them and presents himself. Troy recognizes his logo on his head.  Malkor demands to know about Robo Knight from Vrak and demands he is destroyed. The Rangers power up and take the sludge off. They fight the two generals. Robo Knight takes down the monster. Troy summons the Sky Brother zords and the five do a special sky attack. Bigs and Bluefur leave to be recharged.

The snake monster knocks Robo Knight down. He gets up without a scratch. He uses his Vulcan Cannon card with his Lion Blaster and destroys the monster. The Rangers thank Robo Knight. Vrak makes the monster grow. The monster changes into some sort of vehicle. Robo Knight tells them not to interfere and he morphs into the Lion Zord. The Rangers find it amazing. Lion Mechazord is created and says he was buried underground and has to protect the environment. He destroys the monster. He morphs back into Robo Knight.

 The Rangers run to him unmorphed and ask who he is. Noah says "You are a Robot Ranger and a zord." Troy extends his hand to welcome him and he just passes him. Later, the mutants and Vrak talk about destroying Robo Knight. Tensou runs around the command center saying "New Ranger New Ranger." Gia is mad and asks Gosei. Gosei says he created Robo Knight to protect the Earth, he gave them admirable qualities. The Earth itself woke him up. He says he might have lost some of his memor, not remembering Gosei created him or the Rangers. Gosei says their challenge is to win him over, he has to 

First I was bothered by the voice. With the echo-filled filter, I thought he sounded like Blue Senturion. But I have gotten used to his voice now. I feel the Rangers should had been in the base longer, they haven't been spending a lot of them there. I do like that Gia, Noah and Tensou all had to reinforce that Robo Knight was a sixth ranger, albeit a robot ranger. It was an entertaining episode but the backstory and exposition was sloppier than anything in Samurai.

 So KyoryuGold is not Torin, the mentor. Maru Utsuemi, a 400 year-old swordsman played by Atsushi Maruyama. 

He fought alongside Torin against evil Devoss Army during the Sengoku era. He ended up being sealed inside his rival, Dogold, during their fight. 

As he is released, he swears to destroy the Devoss Army. KyoryuGold’s weapon is a sword called Zunder Thunder. With 3 batteries, he can activate his special attack, “Mysterious Lightning Afterglow

His partner is Pteragodon, who turned evil while Maru Utsusemi was gone.
