PR2020 logo.png This article is about a/an series of Zords and/or Megazords in the Power Rangers franchise.

Several times during Power Rangers, certain villains have summoned or piloted Zords or Megazords of their own or somehow hijacked, overridden or taken control of those belonging to the Rangers; some monsters have even taken on forms similar to Zords. In truth there is little to differentiate them from other giant robots; however, the word itself summons a feeling that the Rangers are now facing beings in some ways like themselves. This motif is used in many mediums to introduce increased tension and drama.

The first instance of this is during the first season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers in which the Rangers fight Tommy Oliver and the Dragonzord. In this instance the Zord and Ranger are turned to the side of good although the Dragonzord is later used for evil by Goldar, Pirantishead (who also controls the Tyrannosaurus Dinozord) and the clone of the Green Ranger. The same idea is reused in the same season of Mighty Morphin when Goldar pilots Cyclopsis. Lord Zedd later pilots Serpentera which is hugely powerful but never truly able to defeat the Rangers due to running out of fuel; Serpentera reappears in Power Rangers Wild Force but is destroyed.

The idea of evil Zords is reused in later seasons; in Power Rangers Turbo Divatox's crew pilots machines called Divazords and Power Rangers In Space has Psycho Yellow take control of the Mega Voyager. Power Rangers Lost Galaxy introduces the Stratoforce and Centaurus Megazords and Zenith Carrierzord under the control of Deviot but whose inner natures as Galactabeasts allow them to break free. The Magna Defender's Torozord is used to fight the Galaxy Rangers on at least one occasion.

In Power Rangers: Time Force there are giant robots not addressed as Zords although in Mirai Sentai Timeranger one is named the G-Zord. This is the first time the word is used on Sentai prior to Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters; the G-Zord is adapted into the Dragontron in Power Rangers Time Force. In Power Rangers SPD and Power Rangers Operation Overdrive giant robots are similarly used by villains. While mostly not referred to as Zords they are all Zord-like in operation.

There is one villainous Zord in PR which isn't a robot in Sentai which is the Lothorzord from Power Rangers Ninja Storm. This is done in order to use footage from Ninpu Sentai Hurricaneger since Lothor is a PR-exclusive villain. This is repeated in the case of the Zelzord from Power Rangers Dino Thunder.
