- ―Nezirangers announcing their arrival[src]
The Jaden Sentai Neziranger (邪電戦隊ネジレンジャー Jaden Sentai Nejirenjā, Lit. Evil Electricity Squadron Neziranger) were evil and homicidal cyborg counterparts of the core Megarangers. They were created by Dr. Hinelar to destroy the team, while Hinelar supplied their energy from Evil Electro-King Javious I in order to drain his energy and take control.

The Nezirangers began life as "strengthening suits" devised by two I.N.E.T. scientists for the protection of Earth: Dr. Samejima and Professor Kubota; after the death of Samejima's daughter Shizuka in an initial attempt by the duo to harness energy by merely the human body. However the suit design was dark and twisted, in reflection of Samejima's complete change in his feelings for working for I.N.E.T. after his daughter's death. Ultimately, when Samejima defected to join Javious, he takes these suits with him. The initial suits that he primarily designed would become used to create his own squadron to combat the Megarangers, which Kubota was forced to start over and develop on his own after Samejima's defection.
Created by Dr. Hinelar from Javious' DNA, while also synced to his lifeforce, the Nezirangers were made to counter the Megarangers. However, Javious did not know the full details of their creation, as each death would gradually shorten his life. They initially imitated the Megarangers except for black marks on their chests and tried to frame them. Unfortunately, the Nezirangers were impatient and wanted nothing more than to destroy their Megaranger counterparts. In this way, the Nezirangers were used by Hinelar not only to kill the Megarangers in suicide attacks, but also to kill Javious by slowly draining him of his life energy through their power usage and their deaths.
When badly damaged or enlarged, they transformed into their true monstrous forms.
One by one, the Nezirangers all died; NeziPink/NeziJealous by Mega Voyager's powered-up Voyager Spartan; NeziBlue/NeziBizarre by Wing Mega Voyager's Winger Spartan; and the last three (NeziYellow/NeziSophia, NeziBlack/NeziVulgar and NeziRed/NeziPhantom) met their end by Super Galaxy Mega, Mega Voyager and Mega Winger's Mega Spartan after the Megarangers perform a risky maneuver to absorb the three's combined energy attack with their three robos which enabled them to transfer the absorbed energy into the Voyager Spartan.
ReturnHowever, the Nezirangers' desire to kill managed to keep them from passing on, as they returned in Japan, but found they were unable to attack MegaRed, MegaBlue, and MegaPink who were sent to investigate their faint energy signatures as they were now ghosts. They later followed the Megarangers to Hinelar City and used Hinelar's data-card machine powered by the Javious Heart to regain physical form and not only resume their goal, but to try to kill Hinelar for exploiting them. But the Megarangers managed to digitize them, preserving them as data cards which were destroyed along with Hinelar City.

- The Nezirangers are the second (after the Flowery Kunoichi Team) and last Evil Ranger Team to not be a copy of their rival Sentai team. The Zokurangers and Evorangers do not count, as they were an assembly of monsters, rather than actual Rangers.
- Though individuals, the Nezirangers initially appear on Earth as if they were mere Megaranger clones with violet rectangles (representing Dr.Hinelar's violet color motif) around their chest instead of the five team colors.
- After their initial battle with the Megarangers, it is seen that they also appear as opponents in the Megaranger arcade game.
- The Nezirangers use the same color palettes as their counterparts.
