"Yes Admiral Malkor? Humans can't match our strength. We'll swarm this planet and destroy them all!"
―Creepox's first words upon being asked about the Earth.[src]

"Forget Vrak's complicated schemes. This is the path to victory. Strike fast and strike hard!"
―Creepox speaking to Admiral Malkor after summoning Dragonflay.[src]

"No! No! It can't be. Me, the mightiest of all Insectoids, fall to a weak human LIKE YOUUUUUU!"
―Creepox's final words before his initial defeat.[src]

"Yes! I'm even stronger now!"
―Creepox once he was enlarged.[src]

"You may have won this battle, Rangers, but you won't win the war against the Insectoids!"
―Creepox's final words before his death.[src]

Creepox was the mantis like-powerhouse of Warstar who is one of the seven chief enemies of Power Rangers Megaforce and a main antagonist during its first arc.

Biography

Creepox wants to destroy the Earth and squash humanity underfoot with brutal force. He is also obsessed with taking down the Red Ranger by himself, whom he comes to see as his main rival. He is primarily sent down to Earth to explore it unnoticed. One day he bumped into Troy, the Red Ranger, stating that the two will duel one day.

Later, Creepox decided to deal with the Red Ranger personally while his monster Dragonflay deals with the other Rangers. Seeing that the Red Ranger is pretty good, he decided to return to the Warstar Spaceship, just to give the Red Ranger time to improve for another encounter. As a result, he left Dragonflay to his doom, making Creepox's attack a failure. Stranger Ranger

Creepox's death on his final one-on-one duel with Troy, his archrival

Later still, Creepox decided to take out all of the Rangers, while still maintaining a grudge against Troy. During this mission, he removed his silver armor and revealed he could attack by blasting powerful Meteor Shots. He proved strong enough to endure most of the Rangers attacks and weapons. He was eventually, and initially, destroyed by Troy. He was enlarged by Vrak, and the Zombats, where he once again wore his silver armor. While enlarged, Creepox could now blast electric attacks from his pincers, in addition to his signature Galaxy Meteor Shots. After being pummeled by Creepox, Gosei gave the Mega Rangers, care of Troy, the ability to form the Ultra Gosei Great Megazord, which defeated Creepox with its Victory Charge Ultra Mega Strike Who's Crying Now?.

Legacy

His death has serious implications to the Insectoids, with Vrak fully taking over the role as second-in-command of Warstar, and as soon as the Toxic Mutants are found, Malkor wastes no time and sends Vrak to forge an alliance with them, intending to have Bigs and Bluefur as replacements to Creepox. Months after Creepox's demise, Vrak used Creepox as an example of someone who underestimates their opponents to Shadow Serpent, which also further notifies caution to Bigs and Bluefur, which then begin to think more before scheming. Creepox later appeared in the last of Glytcher's visions in Raising Spirits.

In Rico the Robot , Creepox, along with Bigs and Bluefur, was mentioned by Admiral Malkor while he conversed with Vrak about the deaths of their fallen comrades.

Personality

Creepox is an innate warrior who holds a firm belief about ruling through strength. He is easily angered by even the most trivial matters and openly expresses his discontent to those around him, even towards Malkor and Vrak. Although utterly loyal to his leader, he is annoyed at how Vrak is favored by Admiral Malkor and has very little patience when it comes to planning and scheming. He also has a deep-seeded, personal rivalry with Troy. His over-inflated ego also bears a superiority complex towards humans, constantly bragging about the superiority of the Insectoids and belittling the Rangers. These traits make him the polar opposite of his cohort, partner and rival, Vrak, who sees to things with intelligence and usually keeps his cool even under severe pressure.

Powers and abilities

  • Strength: Creepox is one of the seven main villains to battle the Mega Rangers and as such, possesses extraordinary strength. A single swing of his pincers sent Jake and Gia flying into a warehouse and he soon pinned Gia and her Tiger Claw down with one pincer.
  • Armor: Creepox wears incredibly strong armor that lets him withstand numerous attacks. Being shot in the chest by the Mega Blasters was easily shrugged off and even Troy's Sky Strike did nothing except for making him stumble back a little.
  • Expert Hand-To-Hand Combatant: In addition to Creepox's incredible raw strength, he is also a skilled fighter, in the episode "Who's Crying Now?", he easily managed to dodge all of the Rangers' attacks and subdue them.
  • Fireball: Creepox can force energy in front of him to form a large fireball, and then launch the fireball at his opponents directly in front of him. The orb is extremely hot and cannot be blocked by anything for long.
    • All Out Fireballs: Creepox can summon many fireballs from around himself and launch them at the enemy.
    • Fireball Meteors: Creepox can launch a fireball into the sky, and it will rain down multiple fireballs like meteors.
  • Deflection: Creepox can deflect any energy based attack with ease.
  • Extraordinary Leaper: Creepox can leap at an incredible distance.
  • Super Speed: Creepox can move extremely fast for short periods of time, using such short bursts to rapidly trounce and catch an adversary by surprise during battle.
  • Agility: Creepox is able to move quick enough to dodge any attacks, allowing him to avert damage through fast collisions.
  • Extreme Resilience: Even without his armor, Creepox's shelled skin is a natural armor to most attacks and provides him with ultimate durability, regardless of the circumstances.
  • High Stamina: Creepox can continue to fight for long periods of time without tiring out, which enables him to outlast those against him if overpowering them is not an immediate option.
  • Rage Empowerment: Creepox can anger himself to trigger a brief but astonishing rise in power and skill.

Arsenal

  • Mantis Scythes: His main weapons are the sickles attached to his forearms. They are extremely sharp and can be kept or become even more sharpened by slicing against one another.
    • Meteor Shots-Creepox's signature attack where he would circle his pincers in a circle around each other which would generate a fireball he would fling forth. Just one of these was powerful enough to knock down and critically injure Jake and Gia and a barrage of these broke through Noah's water shield in under a minute.
      • Galaxy Meteor Shot: A stronger version of his Meteor Shot ability used when he was enlarged. He can point forth his pincers and then generate a large orb of dark blue energy to fling forth. A barrage of these took down the Gosei Great Megazord.
      • Final Burst: Creepox's strongest attack where he can focus all of his energy into a single pink flaming orb that splits into five pieces, directing it with his pincers, and then launch them at the enemy. It rivals or exceeds any countering technique and is enough to (temporarily) counter the Ultra Gosei Great Megazord's Ultra Mega Strike.
    • Dark Energy Cutters: Creepox can also launch dark energy cutters from his scythes.
    • Energy Empowerment: Creepox can charge up his scythes with red energy for an increase in power and then slash at full force across the screen. One energy slash knocked down Gia and Jake.
    • Fireballs: Creepox can also launch fireballs from his scythes as well.
    • Lightning Beams: Creepox can also fire purple colored lightning beams from his scythes.

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

Notes

  • Creepox's death is reversed from how it was in Goseiger since he survived the equivalent of the Ultra Mega Strike only to be killed by Troy's counterpart.
    • The reason this was changed was probably for the sake of making his death less melodramatic since he would have survived the most powerful finisher only for a single slash to finish him off.
  • Creepox's counterpart was defeated by the Gosei Buster/ Megaforce Blaster as opposed to an energy slash from theDragon Sword like him.
    • Unlike him, he was merely knocked down before recovering and telling Brajira/ Vrak to enlarge him whereas Vrak did it himself in Megaforce.
