Crush it! Hinelar's Dark Designs (つぶすぜ! ヒネラーの黒い野望 Tsubusu ze! Hinerā no Kuroi Yabō) is the forty-eighth episode of Denji Sentai Megaranger. This is the fourth and final episode of the Hinelar City arc, featuring the final battle with the Neziranger and sets up series' end-game.
The Megarangers stage a final assault on Hinelar City to save everyone abducted from Hinelar's ultimate plan, only to be pursued by the still vengeful Neziranger.
When the Megarangers reach the new location for Hinelar City beneath the ocean, they are led into a trap. Dr. Hinelar explains that he was capturing humans to turn into data cards. Shibolena then sentences the Megaranger to the same fate. The Neziranger spirits appear and they entered Hinelar’s machine. The five emerge in corporeal form, and they revive the Megarangers. Hinelar later witnesses Kenta and his teammates transform.
The Megarangers blast the Nezirangers with the Multiattack Rifle and the Drill Sniper Custom. This only makes their opponents assume their monster forms. As Yusaku arrives in the city to help, he is confronted by the wounded Yugande. MegaSilver quickly takes care of him before rushing into the data card lab. He tells his friends to lure the Nezirangers back to the room.
Once the Megarangers force the Neziranger beasts into the target area of Hinelar’s device, Yusaku presses the button. The enemies are finally changed into data cards. The lab explodes along with Hinelar City. Back on dry land, the Megarangers celebrate their victory. However, Dr. Hinelar and his minions are not pleased.
