Cosmo Royale was the game show host of Galaxy Warriors, who oversaw the universal broadcasts of the competitors through his Buzzcams and was one of the main villains in Power Rangers Ninja Steel then the third villain in Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel.
Cosmo first appeared to welcome the audience to the Warrior Dome, Galvanax's base and the stage for the Galaxy Warriors show. He then introduced the next contestants, Lavagor and Korvaka, vying for the chance to try and pull out one of the Ninja Power Stars from the Ninja Nexus Prism and become a champion like Galvanax. After transporting them to the battlefield, he released Buzzcams from under his hat to display the fight. When Korvaka won the battle and returned, he presented him with the Prism. Once the Prism zapped Korvaka, Cosmo informed him that while he didn't win a Ninja Power Star, he did win a trip to the hospital.
Cosmo Royale is shoved aside by Galvanax who declares to the audience that whoever destroys the Power Rangers will be named champion. Cosmo later sends Ripperat to destroy Mick Kanic, Calvin Maxwell and Hayley Foster in order to get the Ninja Steel. After Ripperat was destroyed, Cosmo Royale uses the Gigantify Ray on Ripperat to fight the Rangers upon a unanimous vote from the audience. After Ripperat's final demise at the hands of the Rangers' Zords, Cosmo happily tells Galvanax about how well the show's ratings are doing thanks to the Rangers. However, Galvanax doesn't care about the ratings and vows that the Power Stars will be his, which Cosmo nervously agrees with.
Spinferno is hired by Galvanax to attack the Rangers and the Ninja Steel. Cosmo Royale hosts the show but is interrupted by Spinfernp, who spins around him multiple times, making him dizzy. After Spinferno "burns out," Cosmo asks the audience if they should "light him back up." The audience votes "No" and Cosmo Royale unleashes a Skullgator instead. After the Ninja Steel Megazord destroys the Skullgator, Cosmo tries to cheer up an angry Galvanax by telling him that the audience loved the Rangers' new Megazord. Galvanax agrees the Megazord is "amazing" but points out it also defeated them. He threatens to throw Cosmo, along with Ripcon and Odius, into the sun if they fail him again.
Cosmo Royale is seen with Ripcon in Galvanax's lair while Galvanax is looking at the portraits of potential contestants including Lavagor's brother and Ripcon's mother. Later, after Sarah Thompson calls Galvanax a "chump", Cosmo Royale asks the audience what they think of the insult, causing them to boo. Later, when Slogre captures the Yellow, White and Pink Ninja Power Stars, Cosmo Royale praises him. After Slogre is defeated by Brody and Preston, Cosmo Royale uses the Gigantify Ray to revive and enlarge Slogre.
Cosmo introduces Tangleweb to the audience. The monster regurgitates a Kudabot it ate earlier, which Cosmo says is disgusting. When Tangleweb absorbs all five Rangers, Cosmo faints with excitement. When Tangleweb is initially defeated, Cosmo asks the audience if they want to give him a second chance. The audiences votes yes, so Cosmo Gigantifies him.
When Cosmo reveals Badpipes to the audience, Badpipes uses his power to make Cosmo dance. Later, Cosmo uses the Gigantify Ray on Badpipes after the audience votes to do so.
Thanks to a unanimous vote from the audience, Cosmo Royale uses the Gigantify Ray on Hacktrack.
As the audience was displeased that Ripcon failed to defeat Levi Weston, Cosmo Royale unleashes a Skullgator.
Cosmo Royale tells the audience that their latest contestant hasn't shown up until the stage quakes upon Stonedozer's arrival. After Stonedozer gets "between a rock and a hard place," Cosmo Royale asks if they should give him a hand. The audience votes "yes" and Cosmo Royale uses the Gigantify Ray on him.
Cosmo Royale interviews Ripperat's brother Trapsaw who tells Cosmo Royale that he is the self-proclaimed master of traps. Trapsaw tries to get Cosmo Royale to set off his stage trap which doesn't go well as Trapsaw sets it off himself. Cosmo Royale was not pleased that he nearly set off the trap. When the Rangers defeat Trapsaw, Cosmo Royale asks the audience if they should give Trapsaw a hand. The audience votes "yes" and Cosmo Royale uses the Gigantify Ray on him.
When Cosmo Royale asks the audience if they should give Toxitea another chance to fight the Rangers, the audience votes "yes" and Cosmo Royale uses the Gigantify Ray on Toxitea.
Cosmo Royale was present in Galvanax's throne room when Madame Odius pins the blame of the Aiden Romero robot's creation on Ripcon.

Cosmo Royale announces this special event to the audience as he hits the respective buttons to make Ripcon grow and unleash the two Skullgators.
Cosmo Royale comments on Drillion's latest fight with the Rangers.
Cosmo sets a trap to the Rangers with the game "Grave Robber". He tries to destroy them with Trapsaw, Hacktrack, Slogre, Spinferno, and two Skullgators, but his plan failed when Levi joined the game.
Cosmo introduces Phonepanzee to the audience. When the audience votes "yes" for Phonepanzee's second chance to fight the Rangers, Cosmo Royale uses the Gigantify Ray on Phonepanzee to fight the Rangers only for him to be destroyed.
Cosmo discovers that Redbot has a blog and warns Galvanax, who prepares a new plan. Cosmo introduces Cat O'Clock to the audience. When the audience votes "yes" to give Cat O'Clock a second chance to fight the Rangers, Cosmo uses the Gigantify Ray on the monster to fight the Rangers only for him to be destroyed. Later, he creates his own blog saying that he is the champion of Galaxy Warriors and has a plan to take the Ninja Power Stars while also mentioning that he was once wrapped in the finest Eltarian silk. Unfortunately, Galavanax has heard him and destroys his blog before warning him that if he does another stupid thing like this, he will make him offline like Cat O'Clock.
Cosmo introduces Abrakadanger to the audience where he witnesses the monster turn two Kudabots into balloons and pop them. When the audience votes "yes" for Abrakadanger's second chance to fight the Rangers, Cosmo Royale does his own "magic trick" by using the Gigantify Ray on Abrakadanger.
Cosmo introduces Forcefear to the audience. When Forcefear pretends that he has an invincible force field, Cosmo is not convinced and orders two Bashers to destroy it. But the firings are diverted and sent back on Cosmo, laughing Forcefear. Furious, Cosmo charges him only to finish knocked out by the force field. When the audience votes "yes" to give Forcefear a second chance to fight the Rangers, Cosmo uses the Gigantify Ray on Forcefear to fight the Rangers only to be destroyed by the Ninja Steel Ultrazord. Later, after Forcefear's death, a Buzzcam sees Victor and Monty who have the Rangers's Ninja Stars thanks to their high-powered magnet. Then with the Buzzcam, Galvanax informs Cosmo and the rest of Galaxy Warriors that this season will be for all to remember when he takes all the Rangers' Ninja Power Stars, making them happy.
Cosmo addresses to the audience saying that several monsters tried to seize the Rangers's Ninja Power Stars but that finally it is two human beings, (Victor and Monty), who made a success thanks to their high-powered magnet, which Galvanax is now in possession of. He asks if Galvanax is going to succeed in seizing it and in reigning over the universe, his public pushes then yes as well as the roaring of enjoymen when he announces the beginning of the fight between the Rangers) and the Basherbots. Cosmo is seen again when Sarah, Calvin, Preston, Hayley and Levi are prisoners on the Warrior Dome Ship. Knowing that they are gagged, he defies the Rangers by asking them what made them be beaten by Galvanax and begins laughing saying that they lost their tongue and add that they are not so strong as that without their Power Stars. Later, Galvanax orders him to Gigantify him and whereas the Galactic Warriors roar with enjoyment, Cosmo adds that it is the moment when they waited all from the beginning of the fights against the Rangers. After his audience voted yes, he gigantifies Galvanax. While Cosmo comments on the final fight by saying that Galvanax is going to give a good lesson to the Rangers, Victor and Monty disguised as Kudabots arrive on the scene, causing a riot. Furious, he tells them that they are in the middle of the final fight and asks what they are doing here. Monty tries speaking in a robotic voice, saying that they have to help Galvanax on Earth. Cosmo gets ready to send them on Earth to be freed of the Warrior Dome Ship by pressing on the Yellow Button of his console until he remembers that Kudabots cannot speak, and that they don't fart. He unmasks them and discovers that they are Madame Odius's human prisoners. Odius arrives with her Basherbots and sends them to catch them, but Monty routs them by farting (not having digested the "Monstrous Stew" that he ate between "Helping Hand" and "Galvanax Rises"). Cosmo tries to attack Monty from behind, but Monty farts at Cosmo, knocking him unconscious. Shortly after, the giant asteroid made of Ninja Steel strikes the Warrior Dome ship, sending it far into space.

Cosmo is revealed to have survived the ship's impact and now works for Madame Odius. He was present when Sledge cut a deal with Madame Odius to repair the Warrior Dome ship in exchange for the Super Ninja Steel asteroid.

Cosmo is seen laughing at Victor and Monty, not noticing Sarah and Hayley skipping behind him. They want to run away from the scene but Cosmo stops them with two Basherbots. They beg him to stop it, then he proposes that they switch to juggling. Victor says that should be easier and return to perform. Cosmo warns them that if they drop the balls, they will explode. Monty notices it when he brings one down on a Basherbot and Cosmo laughs again. He is later revised, furious, with Badonna having discovered that they freed Madame Odius' soldiers. He asks them furiously how they dared, and that they were supposed to be juggling instead of organizing a rebellion. At that moment, Victor and Monty remember that the balls he gave them were explosive, and they threw them at him and Badonna
before they teleported. Cosmo can only yell before being killed with Badonna, as well as a large part of the Galaxy Warriors, and then the Warrior Dome Ship is sent back to space again.
As the host of Galaxy Warriors, he is witty, charismatic, comical, and a bit egocentric, behaving like a stereotypical game show host.
Unlike most previous villains and his fellow members, he actually doesn't seem to have much of a problem with the Power Rangers being around as long as they boost up the ratings, meaning he prioritizes his show and his business over Galvanax's goals. In several episodes, he openly applauds the Rangers after they win. At the same time, he obeys Galvanax rather out of fear and is very loyal to him and despite of his show is happy when his master was about to crush the Rangers in his final battle. After Galvanax's death, his loyalty shifted to Madame Odius but he still prioritizes his show over her goals. Despite of his show, he remains one of her loyal generals and wishes for the destruction of the Rangers.

Behind the Scenes
- Cosmo Royale is voiced by Campbell Cooley who was also the voice of Ripcon. His suit actor was Kazuhiro Yokoyama (横山 和博 Yokoyama Kazuhiro).
- Cosmo Royale's costume is a recycled version of Baron Nero's costume from Ressha Sentai ToQger (which was not adapted into Power Rangers and came before Shuriken Sentai Ninninger) while sporting a new head and shrunken shoulders.
- Cosmo Royale's voice is based on comedian Ed Wynn.
- Cosmo Royale is the third Power Rangers villain adapted from a different Sentai series than the one his respective season was based off of and the first villain to be adapted from a Sentai series that wasn't adapted into a Power Rangers season. The first was Furio from Power Rangers Lost Galaxy, whose costume came from Denji Sentai Megaranger, not Seijuu Sentai Gingaman. The second was Master Org, who's costume came from Gosei Sentai Dairanger, not Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger.
- As opposed to Ninninger where as Madame Odius' counterpart was he one who grew the monsters and summon the Gashadokuro, he is the one growing the monsters and summoning the giant Skullgators with a special machine.
- His facial expression is able to change based on his mood. He normally looks happy, but has an angry expression when Spinferno tried to upstage him in Live and Learn, along with a shocked expression when learning that Tangleweb had eaten a Kudabot in Drive to Survive. The same episode also shows that he is able to rapidly spin his head in order to turn his face back to normal. Because of this, he shares some similarity to the Mayor of Halloween Town from The Nightmare Before Christmas.
- He is quite similar to Octoroo from Samurai. Both are quite short, both have purple-ish skin and both are very loyal to their respective masters, in this case, Xandred, Galvanax and Madame Odius.
- His name is based on the title of James Bond movie, Casino Royale.
- In the Arabic dub of the show, he is the main villain. Though, his personality still remains the same.
- Cosmo has never been shown to have gone down to Earth, unless you count Grave Robber, but that was technically inside a different world equivalent to Earth.
- Baron Nero - Super Sentai counterpart in ToQger. See comparison page.
- Kyuemon Shingetsu Kibaoni - Super Sentai counterpart in Ninninger. See comparison page. (as a role for growing the monsters and summoning the giant Skullgators)
