Game Plan is the fifth episode of Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel.


The students of Summer Cove High become addicted to a new video game.


The students of Summer Cove are all playing Game Goblin, including Preston, and he makes the other rangers, except Brody, addicted as well. They are in class and everyone except, Brody plays the game, to Mrs. Finch's irritation. She gives Victor's game to Mrs. Bell and she says “no one can get past Mrs. Bell”. Brody gets annoyed that the rangers are playing and he takes it off Levi Weston, and Brody, Calvin, Hayley and Sarah get sucked into the game.

They meet Game Goblin and battle him, and he manages to turn Brody and Hayley against the other rangers using the controller beam. Preston arrives but Game Goblin controls him as well, but he snaps out of it when Game Goblin loses power after Mick and Levi convince the Summer Cove Students to stop playing. Preston then destroys Game Goblin. He gets a bonus level and goes giant and uses his controller beam to freeze the Dragon Formation and Astro Ninja Steel Megazord, but is destroyed by the Sub Surfer Ninja Megazord.

Victor tries to get his game back but gets in trouble, and Badonna tells Madame Odius that she booked the Galactic Ninjas for the next episode. Meanwhile, Cosmo arrives, green faced from playing Game Goblin too much, but Badonna shows him his reflection in a mirror and he drops the game immediately.


Ninja Power Stars


  • When Preston showed the other Rangers his video game, Game Goblin was platforming on his own.
  • When Preston jumped in to kick Game Goblin, he was originally going to perform a slash in the shot, but when it cuts away he performs the kick.
  • Akihiro “Yuji” Noguchi was incorrectly credited as the “2nd Unit Director 2nd Unit Director”.
  • When Game Goblin had his power bar filled up the second time during the fight, the green 8-bit effect disappears.
  • After Levi was contacting Brody, his Ninja Com had three of the four lids open, in the camera close up shot, all of them were open.
  • Game Goblin referred to Preston by name, but after he went in to save the other Rangers, Game Goblin referred to him as Blue Ranger.
  • When Brody, Sarah, Calvin, and Hayley get sucked into the game, if you look carefully some of their games have white outlining around them.
  • After Game Goblin transforms to his true form, the material used to make the costume is exposed. When he smacks his hands together his teeth slightly bend back.
  • Victor is literally lying on his crushed game while it is sparking, but surprisingly he is not getting shocked by it.
  • This can only be seen for a split second so this makes it difficult to notice, but if one where watch very carefully one poster is actually Ripcon's mother, indicating the poster Badonna gave to Odius is are just older posters and not the Galactic Ninjas.
  • It is unknown how the Rangers were able to summon their Zords in the game


  • Levi does not appear morphed in this episode.
  • A remix of the "Zords" theme by Ron Wasserman from Season 1 of Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers was played when the Rangers performed the Sub Surfer Ninja Megazord Riptide Slash to finish Game Goblin.
  • The handheld gaming device that the Rangers and the students of Summer Cove High School playing the Game Goblin video game was a modified New Nintendo 3DS XL.
  • This episode marks the second appearance of the Kudabots since the previous season.
  • At the end of the episode, Badonna and Madame Odius speak about the Galactic Ninjas, meaning they will appear in the next episode.
  • Although Mick and Levi made up the "Game Goblin Curse" to scare the Summer Cove high schoolers into stop playing the game, it turns out the said curse is real as Cosmo Royale ended up turning green and with dreadlocks after reaching level 10, similar to the makeover that Mick gave Levi.
  • Game Goblin's video game appearance ironically resembles Gex the Gecko, and the gameplay also slightly resembles the game. It was also very ironic that this episode coincidentally aired on the second game's 20th anniversary in North America.
