|This article is about a/an empire in Power Rangers Super Megaforce.|
The Armada was a powerful empire led by an alien royal family and the main antagonists of Super Megaforce. They were depicted as being one of the most widespread armies in outer space. They arrived on Earth just after the supposed 'death' of Vrak.
The Armada was a galactic empire that sent several fleets across the galaxy for the sake of conquering planet after planet in order to strip them of their natural resources.
At some point, a branch of the Armada under the command of Prince Vekar was sent out to invade the planet Andresia, wiping out the dominant lifeforms known as the Andresians. However, due to the Armada's swift job, only one survived, who would become the 2nd Sixth Ranger to the Megaforce Rangers. After spending several months on end to hone his skills, to think like an animal would when in the face of danger, Orion set out on a quest to claim closure for what has become of his homeworld. He stole an Armada ship and use it to travel across the galaxy until he found the Armada once more.
Setting out for another invasion, Emperor Mavro was left with no choice but to have his eldest yet incompetent son Vekar lead a fleet of the Armada towards Earth, in hopes of teaching him a lesson once he becomes Armada ruler. To ensure Vekar carries out the job, Mavro called out the needs of one of his best advisers; Damaras, who was stated to be the most powerful man and warrior in the universe, to serve as Vekar's second-in-command. Before they could attack Earth, the Armada sent Warstar, their advance force, to arrive at the planet roughly a year to attack the planet's resistance before the royal empire came close to their currently prime target.
The double agent, the Messenger, eventually came to Earth, working for both factions and exchanging news on whether or not Vrak had successfully conquered Earth.
After Admiral Malkor's defeat, Messenger then assisted Vrak and Metal Alice into destroying the Rangers to prepare for the Armada's arrival. Vrak's role was to disable the Rangers' morphers while the Messenger's was to finish them off. However, the plan backfired when Robo Knight recharged his morpher using his energy and used the last of it to restore the Rangers. They then went on and destroyed the Messenger. Just then, Metal Alice arrived to the scene to fight the Rangers, but was defeated. After that, however, the Messenger survived as a head and the Armada began its invasion of Earth. Vrak then hid from the Armada, as his brother wouldn't recognize him in his cyborg state.
After the Armada's warship myriad demolished the city, Prince Vekar had Headridge lead an army of XBorgs and Bruisers to clear out any remaining humans. Unfortunately for them, Headridge was destroyed by the Super Mega Rangers. Vekar immediately sent down Tentacus to get rid of them, only for him to be defeated as well.
The next day, as the humans were rebuilding the city, Vekar had Cybax enact a plan to launch missiles to every major city on Earth in two hours. Troy stumbled upon the plot and called in the other Rangers to stop Cybax. Though the missiles were about to be launched, Troy managed to disarm it just in time. Alongside the other Rangers, they defeated Cybax and charged at the Armada in space with the Legendary Megazord. They destroyed virtually the entire invasion fleet, except for the Armada Mothership.
After the Bruisers were destroyed by the Legendary Megazord and afterwards when the Mega Rangers were heading to find the Animarium, Damaras sent an Armada Attackship to hunt down the Rangers in the Skyship but was destroyed afterwards and he then sent Armada General Peluso along with his XBorgs to retrieve the legendary Red Lion Wildzord. As the general and his XBorgs fought the Rangers, The Red Lion awoke and knocked the Rangers and the soldiers off the island sending them to crash. Afterwards, Prince Vekar thought that finding the Red Lion was a waste of time so he had changed Peluso's objective to reconquering the city as it was intended but Peluso was defeated afterwards. The Legendary Megazord has obtained the power of the Red Lion and finished off General Peluso in the process leaving the villains to think of another plan to conquer Earth.
Sick of the failures of conquering Earth, Vekar's father the Emperor decides to send Matacore. He was assigned to assist Vekar during the invasion of Earth. At this point Vekar saw an opportunity to secure his worth and had a public speech on Earth alongside Matacore, Argus and many XBorgs. He announced that the humans have two choices which is to either surrender or be destroyed. In the middle of the speech, the Rangers interrupted. The Rangers attacked the Armada troop, but didn't stand a chance. However, when Vekar was blasted by Noah, they retreated to protect him from any more harm. Later that day, Matacore was sent down to destroy the Rangers and clean up Vekar's honor and reputation. This time the Rangers had a Samurai Battle Disk to assist them. They used the Samurai Ranger powers and defeated Matacore.
Many months or so of hunting the Armada down, Orion discovered that the Armada branch led by Vekar was currently attacking Earth, not letting any opportunity to claim vengeance be wasted. While Vekar kept doing random attacks with XBorgs, the Silver Ranger destroyed them all before the core Rangers can do it. Eventually the core Rangers got their chance to fight the XBorgs themselves (at this point Vekar sent Gorgax with the XBorgs). In the middle of the battle, the Silver Ranger interfered and destroyed all the XBorgs. He then leaves while the Rangers fight Gorgax, however Gorgax retreats. Then comes back later on to fight the Rangers. In the middle of the battle, Silver Ranger interferes and destroys Gorgax. After the battle, the Silver Rangers reveals himself as Orion, an alien from the the planet Andresia. Later that day, Damaras sends down Osogain to Earth, which the Rangers alongside the Silver Ranger fight, destroying him.
After countless failures to conquer Earth once more, the Emperor once again sends help in the form of the Armada Megazord. After beating the Rangers with the Armada Megazord, Vekar celebrated. Not willing to make any mistakes, Vekar sent down Argus to make sure the Rangers are defeated. When Argus was taken down by Noah, Vekar sought to avenge his best soldier's demise. Much to Damaras's disapproval, Vekar went to the Armada Megazord to fight the Rangers. This time, the Rangers had the upper-hand. They destroyed Vekar along with his Megazord using a new Megazord combination, the Ultimate Legendary Megazord.
A day later, Vrak starts his master plan which is to have three giant drills drill through Earth, causing the planet itself to explode. Then to present himself to the Armada as the true inheritor of the throne as well as to have the Armada harvest as many salvageable resources as possible after Earth exploded. Vrak starts his plan by building his first drill using technology from his underwater lair. He then captured Orion, draining him of his lifeforce and powers to create three powerful Gosei Orbs containing Orion's powers, to transfer some to Robo Knight, bending the latter to his will, and to disable the Rangers' Legendary Powers. Once all three drills were in place thanks to the Rangers, unknowingly, giving Tresnag and Drill Horn enough power to become drills while defeating them, Vrak inserted the Gosei Orbs into them, causing a solar eclipse and the drills to start drilling through Earth. The Rangers managed to put a stop to Vrak's plan. As with Vrak's defeat, the drills disappeared into nothingness and the Legendary Powers were restored. In between these events, Robo Knight was freed from Vrak's control thanks to Troy and Robo Knight saved Orion, by transferring his own life force into him, now living within him.
Seeking to avenge the death of his sons, Emperor Mavro arrives to take over as leader of Earth's invasion. He places both Yellzor and Redker as his 2nd in commands and throws Damaras into prison for his incompetence to protect Prince Vekar. Damaras was later freed and given a chance to redeem himself. Damaras's plan was to capture Troy and put him in display on Earth for a public execution. This plan, however, failed.
Even later, Emperor Mavro called in as many Armada ships as possible in the galaxy. He told them to terminate their missions and to set a course for Earth. After a heated battle with Mavro himself, the Rangers with help from the Legendary Rangers managed to put a stop to the Armada, ending the threat of them in the galaxy once and for all.
- Invidous is technically not a field commander but a butler, and Matacore and Yellzor are Elite Guards. Also, General Peluso is a one-off general monster of the week, not a more than one episode general.
- Unlike Space Empire Zangyack where they only have been together with the Evil Spirits through Makuu Prison Warden Ashurada and in Kamen Rider × Super Sentai: Super Hero Taisen, whereas here, Warstar have always been a part of the Armada as a branch. The Toxic Mutants and Robots were indirectly aligned with the empire through Warstar's behalf.
- The Armada's ultimate fate as an empire is unknown, but it's likely it went the same way as Zangyack did and dissolved into fractions until it's reign on the galaxy is broken.
