"Erra! You're nothing! Euragh!"

""I’m gonna leave here with those Power Stars!""
―Korvaka to the Rangers after they discovered their Ninja Blasters and his final words before his death.[src]

Korvaka is a cyborg lion-like contestant from Galaxy Warriors and was the first warrior sent to Earth by Galvanax to retrieve the Ninja Nexus Prism from Brody Romero, the first monster of Power Rangers Ninja Steel and overall, the very first monster in the Power Rangers Ninja Steel series. He appears as the secondary antagonist in the episode "Return of the Prism", the first part of the two-part pilot of Power Rangers Ninja Steel.

History

Korvaka was the champion of the Ninninger Galaxy who is first seen being selected to fight Lavagor by Cosmo Royale, in which he quickly beats and destroys the warrior with ease. He was awarded by getting a chance to retrieve one of the Ninja Power Stars from the Ninja Nexus Prism, but unable to get it after being electrocuted. He was then removed for apparent medical attention at which point Brody stole back the Ninja Nexus Prism and escaped with the ship's mechanic onto Earth. Korvaka is later sent by Galvanax to retrieve it and quickly finds and fights Brody for the Prism, initially winning the fight. However, right before Korvaka can make the final strike on Brody, he gets knocked into a tree by Sarah Thompson and Preston Tien via Sarah's hoverboard, making the monster dizzy. Noticing the Power Stars within the Prism glowing, Brody, Preston and Sarah are each able to retrieve one, allowing them respectively to become the Red, Blue and Pink Ninja Steel Rangers. After Korvaka recovers, the three morph and fight him, at first fighting him with their Ninja Star Blades before destroying Korvaka with their Ninja Blasters. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Return of the Prism

Personality

Korvaka is cold-hearted, arrogant, ruthless, sadistic, callous, and power-hungry, and will stop at nothing to destroy the Rangers and get whatever he can get his claws on.

Powers and Abilities

  • Strength: Although Korvaka is the first monster of Power Rangers Ninja Steel, he is far stronger than Lavagor, who he easily overpowered and destroyed. A single kick sent Brody onto his rear and he quickly threw him across the battlefield.
  • Durability: A massive slash from Lavagor's sword only made him stumble back a bit whilst being electrocuted and being blown back from the Ninja Nexus Prism caused him little harm.
  • Skilled Fighter: Despite being the first monster, Korvaka is a skilled fighter, being able to counter Brody's strikes and subdue him. He was also able to easily conquer anyone in the Ninninger Galaxy as well as destroy Lavagor.
  • Teleportation: Korvaka can teleport to any location at will.
  • Extraordinary Jumper: Korvaka can jump at incredible heights.

Arsenal

  • Sword: When in combat, Korvaka can equip himself with a sword.
    • Energy Empowerment: Korvaka can charge up his sword with red energy and slash at full force, as shown when fighting Lavagor. Three slashes easily destroyed the opposing monster.
    • Sword Laser: Korvaka can fire green energy lasers from his sword. Two blasts of this was enough to wipe out an unmorphed Brody.
    • Sword Beam: Korvaka can also fire a green energy beam from his sword which is presumably his strongest attack both due to its nature and also because it was used to try and kill Brody, Sarah, and Preston whilst they were morphing. He also stated that it was impossible for them to survive that.
      • Sword Beam Split: The beam from Korvaka's sword can also split to blast multiple enemies.

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

  • Korvaka is voiced by Tim Raby in his only Power Rangers voice role.

Notes

  • Korvaka is a partially-recolored version of Mig's cyborg form while his sword is a slightly altered version of that of Benglo's sword.
  • Korvaka is one of only three Ninja Steel monsters not to be gigantified, the others being Spinferno (who the audience voted against having a second chance) and the Unidentified Contestant (who the villains likely saw as not worth making giant).
    • It is unclear why Korvaka himself was not grown giant seeing as the following episode gave no indication that the gigantification machine was non-operational or had yet to be invented.
  • According to Cosmo, he was the champion of the Ninninger Galaxy, which is named after Shuriken Sentai Ninninger, the Super Sentai season that Power Rangers Ninja Steel is adapted from.
    • This is not the first time such a reference occurred in the Power Rangers franchise; one season earlier in Dino Super Charge, Badussa boasts about having previously destroyed the Kyoryuger Galaxy.
  • Korvaka is the only PR exclusive monster from the Neo-Saban era to fight the Rangers and be destroyed by them, while the PR exclusive monsters beforehand (Sledge's background prisoners, the Cloaked Alien, and Lavagor) were minor villains with little to no characteristics and the latter two were killed by other villains instead or (in the case of Sledge's prisoner, Koda's bomb but that was after this episode anyway).
