"Momo. If you hadn't gotten curious about Mayumi, I wouldn't have to resort to these measures. Mayumi didn't drown in the river. I abducted her eleven years ago. Because I love cute little girls."
―Bara Nightmare's first words when confronting Momo in her dreams.[src]
"How dare you! Muyumi is mine!"
―Bara Nightmare after surprising the Ohrangers just before engaing them in battle and his final words before his death.[src]

Bara Nightmare (バラナイトメア Bara Naitomea) is a Machine Beast of the Machine Empire Baranoia.


Eleven years prior to Baranoia's invasion of Earth, Bara Nightmare was a defiant Machine Beast that had went against the orders of Bacchus Wrath. Before he could be executed, he escaped and fled to Earth, where he became able to indulge in his own desires. From then on over the next eleven years, Bara Nightmare would abduct girls from their school, trapping them in his dream realm while doing whatever he wanted with them with no defiance.

Ultimately when Momo Maruo, the best friend of Mayumi, the first of his victims, became known to him, Bara Nightmare began to haunt her dreams as well, using the friend as a means to lure in Momo and trap her. After an initial encounter that Momo woke up from, she used U.A.O.H.'s technology to enter into the dream world and try to track down Mayumi and the assailant, ultimately becoming captured by Bara Nightmare in the dream world. The other Ohrangers quickly pursue and save Momo before waking her up, discovering that Bara Nightmare is headquartered in the school that he uses in his dreams. Reaching the school and discovering all the lost girls (having not aged a day since Bara Nightmare captured them), they fight and defeat the threat with the Chouriki Dynamite Attack.

Behind the Scenes


  • to be added


  • Back in early 2003, shortly after the series changed hands from Saban Entertainment to Disney, some of the monster costumes, including Bara Nightmare, were auctioned off by ABC Auctions. It sold for $100.
  • Bara Nightmare is one of just four Machine Beasts that was never adapted for Power Rangers Zeo. The others were Bara Brain, Bara Saucer's first model, Bara Police, and Bara Mobile.
    • The reason for being unadapted is his face being considered too horrifying for American audiences as well as the fact that his weapon is a butcher's knife.
  • His motif is based off a mad scientist and a butcher.
