Count Nocturne is a vampire bat monster who acts as the main antagonist of the episode "Carlos and the Count."
Count Nocturne was created by Divatox when she wrapped her tongue around a passing lunar space bat. When Carlos was wandering through the park alone, he sent Piranhatrons to ambush him.He then flew down to the park at night and bit him, turning him into a vampire and he slowly began to take on the characteristics of a vampire. When Divatox realised Justin was catching onto the vampire scheme too quickly, she sent Nocturne and some Piranhatrons to bite all the rangers.He almost got his chance but TJ and Cassie easily defeated the help and he was forced to flee as they approached. However, the Rangers began suspecting he had infected Carlos. While trying to obtain blood at the Blood Drive that was held at the high school, T.J. and Ashley teleported him to the Power Chamber , where he received a temporary antidote. The alarm went off as Nocturne had apparently attacked Cassie and Justin in the Park so they morphed to help thier friends.
The Rangers then took on Count Nocturne at the park,where he hoped to get Carlos back on his side again. When that failed, he tossed down his former slave and blasted the Rangers with his fire breath. The Rangers blasted the Count with the Turbo RAM Cannon Mode., but as always, Divatox made him giant, and the Rangers took him on in the Rescue Megazord, but the main torso sustained damage. The Rangers switched to the Turbo Megazord, but the Count locked up the Megazord in chains before multi-slashing it with his claws, causing critical damage to the arms and legs. As Nocturne's power grew stronger, Carlos was more in danger of falling under the Count's spell once again, but Carlos came up with the idea of combining the remaining undamaged zords to defeat the monster. The Rangers were able to knock the monster down with the Turbo Megazord's Headlight Blaster, then created the Rescue Turbo Megazord, using Red Lightning and Mountain Blaster from the Turbo Zords with Thunder Loader, Star Racer and Wind Rescue from the Rescue Megazords to create the Rescue Turbo Megazord . Using this new combo, they sliced apart Nocturne's weapon, and on Carlos's command, used Artillery power to destroy the monster, freeing Carlos from the evil spell.
