Distractor is a spider-like Toxic Mutant that assisted Vrak while he tried to obtain the Wild Sword.

Character History

Distractor is hired by Vrak to keep the Megaforce occupied while he seeks the Wild Sword.

PRM-Phantom Army

Distractor and his phantom army.

The monster first appeared as a giant where the Rangers confronted him and then summoned the Gosei Great Megazord. The monster pretended to go down but soon recovered and summoned forth his phantom army. The Rangers were shocked but the monsters proved to be inanimate and useless illusions. His ruse is found out by Robo Knight, who grows and makes him fall back to human size using his Robo Blade. He eventually holds him off while the Rangers continue towards the Black Mountains. After Vrak tricks the Rangers into releasing the weapon, Vrak steals it and Distractor teleports away from his battle and later accompanies him as the alien tests out the power of his new possession. Distractor is empowered with it, allowing him to give his phantoms physical form, gaining the upper hand. The Wild Sword, however, is won over by the Rangers and converts into the Ultra Zords and the Megaforce gains access to thier new power-up, Ultra Mode. They completely overpower Vrak and obliterate Distractor and his army with the Ultra Strike.

Personality

Distractor is a bit of a mischievous troublemaker who tends to perform like an actor, he is very sneaky and is loyal to Vrak, but doesn't know when to keep quiet about his plans, which puts him in his dismiss at the hands of the Mega Rangers.

Powers and Abilities

  • Agility-Distractor was able to throw himself backwards from the Megazord's Dragon Sword and a punch from the Shark Zord with ease.
  • Energy Breath: Distractor can launch out a stream of orange energy from his mouth.
  • Colour Beam-Distractor can apparently unleash some kind of "colour beam." It is unclear whether he can actually do this, whether it was his energy breath attack, or whether this was just a fake boast since the Rangers interrupted it with the Dragon Sword before he could do it.
  • Teleportation: Distractor can teleport to any location at will.
  • Size Changing: Distractor made himself grow off-screen.
  • Extraordinary Leaper: Distractor can leap at an incredible distance.
  • Phantom Illusions: Distractor possesses the ability to cast illusions of Toxic Mutants by spraying the air with white mist from his mouth to confuse and distract his foes. Due to these monsters being illusions, they can not be harmed and they don't do anything other then standing in one place and occasionally moving around.
    • Phantom Summoning-When Distractor gets powered up by the Wild Sword, the monster illusions become real, which gives them an increase of strength and can actually attack.
  • Eight-Leg Assault: Distractor's signature attack where he can also use create giant spider legs that can attack the target.

Arsenal

  • Claw Blades: Distractor can extend his claws into blades for combat.

Behind the Scenes

Notes

  • Distractor's name comes from the words Distract or Distracted, which fits due to the monster's role to distract the Megaforce Rangers from getting the Wild Sword.
  • It is unclear why Vrak never made Distractor grow.
  • Distractor's claws look very similar to Wolverine's claws.
