- "Yes! It's payback time!"
- ―Deceptron upon being gigantified.[src]
- "Oh no! The truth hurts!""
- ―Deceptron's final words before his death.[src]
Deceptron was first seen in front of a gift shop-like area where Victor and Monty are buying sunglasses. His Bolt Blaster powers up as Monty lies to Victory about his "new" sunglasses. He spots the Ninja Steel Rangers and also does the same when the Yellow Ranger lies to the White Ranger, with him charging up, he encounters the Rangers and right before the Rangers could morph, Deceptron uses his Bolt Blaster to fire out a Bolt Blast at the White Ranger's Ninja Power Star, preventing her from morphing.
He escapes back to the Warrior Dome and gloats to the crowd of how Haley can't morph. Odius complies of how he only did one Ranger, to which he says that he will wait until the Rangers does more lying so that his Bolt Blaster can power up and then steal all of the Ninja Ranger's Power Stars. He comes back and absorbs even more lies from the Yellow Ranger, after it charges up again, he encounters Brody, Calvin, Preston and Levi again. They morph and do battle with Deceptron, but he was too strong and he fires his Bolt Blast at the Blue and Gold Rangers, demorphing them and sabotaging their Ninja Power Stars. Though he ran out of energy for his Bolt Blast, he was still strong enough to attempt to steel the Ninja Power Stars. Luckily for the others, Sarah arrived on her Mega Morph Cycle and took him down with a Plasma Blast, forcing him to retreat.
However, his plan backfires when Calvin tells the truth of how he didn't give Hayley a present, causing the bolts to be removed. Deceptron then goes to a city and absorbs even more lies from Monty. Once filled up, he continues his mission to find the Rangers, though the Rangers find him and then morph, much to Deceptron's shock and confusion, to take him on and he summons an army of Basherbots to aid him in battle. As the Blue, Pink, White and Gold Rangers battle the Basherbots, the Red and Yellow Rangers battle Deceptron, to which he overpowers both. The Pink Ranger then joins in and then the Red Ranger turns into the Lion Fire Red Ranger and takes on the monster. Deceptron then hones in on the Ranger and fires his Bolt Blast in point-blank range at the Red Ranger, but right before his attack could have any effect on the Red Ranger, the Yellow Ranger used the Ninja Water Attack to shield and reflect the Bolt Blast back at Deceptron, completely stunning him and allowing the Pink Ranger to fire her Arrow Blast at the Bolt Blaster, destroying it. Deceptron is then destroyed when the Pink and Yellow Rangers used their Steel Slash as well as the Red Ranger's Lion Fire Slash Final Attack.
Deceptron is then gigantified to which the Rangers summons the newly returned Ninja Steel Megazord, Bull Rider Megazord and the Lion Fire Megazord to battle Deceptron. Equipped with the new Ninja Super Steel Mode, they overwhelm him with the Lion Fire Megazord's shurikens before hitting him with a Drago Sword Slash and the Rodeo Rapid Fire Final Attack. However, he survived all of this so they formed the Ninja Ultrazord to use its Ninja Ultra Strike, but it wasn't enough. Deciding to up thier game, Calvin summoned the new Ninja Super Steel Blaster which powered up the Ninja Ultrazord Blast Final Attack enough to destroy Deceptron once and for all.
Deceptron's personality is quite similart to that of a robot, he speaks in a calm robot tone, though he is quite cocky, always boasting about his power.
Powers and abilities
- Strength: Deceptron is shown to be very powerful in terms of strength, able to overpower the Rangers easily and could take down Calvin and Sarah with a single punch each which sent them flying.
- Durability: Deceptron has incredibly thick skin that easily withstood strikes from the Lion Fire Megazord, an energized slash from the Ninja Steel Megazord, and the Bull Rider Megazord's Rodeo Rapid Fire with little reaction. Even the Ninja Ultrazord's Ninja Ultra Strike had absolutely no effect on him, except for making him stumble back.
- Teleportation: Deceptron can teleport to any location at will.
- Lighting Blast: Deceptron can fire a light green colored lighting blast from the two sets of screws in front of his shoulder pads.
- Basherbot Summoning: Deceptron can summon an army of Basherbots to aid him in battle.
- Bolt Blast: Deceptron's signature attack where he is able to absorb human lies and convert them into a powerful yellow energy ray, which is released from the center bolt on his waist. The energy beam can de-morph any Ranger it hits, leaving the Rangers' Power Stars bolted. However, the only way to remove the bolts is to tell the truth. Deceptron can also make them larger, increasing its strength and size, making it even powerful enough to hold back Lion Fire Red.
- Fists: Deceptron lacks weapons but his immense strength makes his hands very dangerous.
Deceptron is shown that he can absorb lies to fill up his Bolt Blast, so he needs the lies so that he can use it, if the Bolt Blast is out of energy, then it cannot be used and must be refilled.
Behind the Scenes
- Deceptron is voiced by Mark Wright, who has voiced many previous Power Rangers villains, such as Dino Super Charge's Doomwing.
- Deceptron's method of using bolts on the power stars to stop the Ninja Steel Rangers from morphing is similar to Singe’s method of using Zotak Rings on the Dino Charge Rangers' Energems.
- His name may be a combination of deception and Tron, both words being heavily tied to the Transformers franchise (deception>Decepticon; tron>multiple subjects, including Cybertron and Megatron). With that in mind, his name could also be a pun/amalgam of Decepticon and their Japanese name, Destron (also the name of Kamen Rider V3's villain group).
- Unlike his Sentai counterpart, he is not related directly to any monster group.
