Icon-prwf.pngThis article is about a/an duo of monsters in Power Rangers Wild Force.

Artilla & Helicos were two Duke Orgs that were released by Mandilok. They are the secondary antagonists of the episode "Homecoming".

Character History

With the Nexus messed up due to the interference of the fake Master Org, Mandilok released two powerful Duke Orgs: a tank-themed Org named Artilla and a helicopter-themed Org named Helicos. The General Org was hungry and Artilla and Helios were used as bodyguards in case the Wild Force Rangers interfered with his meal. They first escorted Mandilok to a Colosseum to consume the human food. When the Rangers appeared, the two Duke Orgs came in to protect their master and defeated them with shear power. With the Rangers out of commission for the time being, Mandilok and the two Duke Orgs escaped.

They later returned to the city, where Mandilok orders them to prepare two large buildings for "lunch." Before they could, they were stop by the young boy named Kite. The two Duke Orgs attacked Kite, but the boy kicked Helicos' leg and ran off, causing the two Duke Orgs to give chase. They eventually cornered Kite, and Artilla was about to use his Cannon Shot on him until the Red Ranger came in on his Savage Cycle and took the shot. Later the Yellow, Blue, White and Black Rangers came in their Savage Cycles and blasted the two Duke Orgs, but they were still outmatched and the Orgs defeated them again before escaping.

Artilla and Helicos returned again, but this time the Rangers successfully managed to capture the two Duke Orgs. The Blue and Back Rangers took on Artilla and the Yellow and White Rangers took on Helicos, but even separate, they were still more then a match for the Rangers, and they defeated them again, even with the aid of the Lunar Wolf Ranger. After Mandilok went after Princess Shayla and Kite, Merrick went after him. The Rangers ultimately acquired the upper hand, with Taylor and Alyssa slicing back Helicos' Boomerang Blades with their Golden Eagle Sword and White Tiger Baton which cut off one of Artilla's treads. Cole then tied up Helicos with Artilla's tread, causing him to fall over due to the weight, and Danny holding down Artilla for Max to cut off Artilla's turret using his Blue Shark Fighting Fins , leaving him powerless. Cole then destroyed Helicos with his Falcon Summoner Archer Mode while the other Rangers destroyed Artilla with the Jungle Sword.

Toxica enlarged the two Duke Orgs, and the Rangers tried to summon the Wildzords, but they weren't responding. Because of this, the two Duke Orgs easily overpowered the Rangers before Kite cleared away the clouds, allowing the Rangers to summon their Wildzords and form the Isis Megazord. They used the Giraffe Spear to bring Helicos down to the ground and then deployed the Isis Stare on the two Duke Orgs, freezing them in place, and with the Final Strike attack, the two Duke Orgs are destroyed once and for all.

Personality

Artilla is highly loyal to Mandilok, and will do anything in his power to destroy the Rangers. Much like Artilla, Helicos is highly loyal to Mandilok, and will do anything in his power to destroy the Rangers.

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

    • Helicos' voice is very similar to Squatt, who Sorich also portrayed and is practically identical to his first monster role as the Terror Toad.

Etymology

to be added

Notes

  • Both Artila and Helicos are based off of military vehicles.
  • Ironically, Artilla is responsible for Cole gaining his Wild Force Rider (which Kite gave him as recompense for the destruction of his Savage Cycle which occurred in his defense) and thus the destruction of Serpentera which could have successfully destroyed the Earth and accomplished the Org's goal.
  • The "Artill" in Artilla's name probably refers to "artillery".
  • The "Heli" in Helicos's name refers to "helicopter" and Artilla's name probably refers to the real-life 5th century Hungarian conqueror, "Attila the Hun".
