Lord Arcanon was a vicious intergalactic warlord who was the catalyst of the entire Dino Charge Series. He was Sledge's employer, the destroyer of Sentai 6, and Singe's boss as well as the hidden true main antagonist of the Power Rangers Dino Charge series.
Where it All Began
Long ago, Arcanon had sought for control and power of the universe by going on a quest to obtain the eleven Energems to become all-powerful. He first landed on the planet of Sentai 6 where the Dark Energem had been sealed away in. Knowing full well that he could not succeed in finding it, he decided to obliterate the entire planet if not all of it's residents. He soon went after Heckyl in the hopes of obtaining the Dark Energem in its container and shot lasers to slow him down. After Heckyl had made an error with bonding with the Dark Energem and created Snide, he approaches to the amnesiac evil half to snatch the Energem away from him and told him that he would remember nothing of that day.
Afterward, the crooked warlord fought Keeper's apprentice, Zenowing once he had arrived on the desolated planet before losing his right shoulder spike in a battle. Despite Zenowing's efforts with taking back the Dark Energem even with the powers of the Silver Energem, Arcanon successfully captured him and chained him up. He knew that Zenowing would never do his wicked biding, so he decided to use the Dark Energem's power to corrupt Zenowing into Doomwing, just like what happened to Heckyl/Snide.
Arcanon knew that even when he has the Silver Ranger and The Dark Energem, they wouldn't be enough to help him with his conquest. So he had enlisted the help of Sledge to capture the universe's criminals to build up his army and he would reward the bounty hunter with his vast possession of Space Bullions.
Millions of Years Later
He had waited for Sledge to return with his prisoners and the Energems.
He finds out that Sledge's ship crashed on Earth, so he decides to send his agent, Singe down to Earth to infiltrate the ship by posing as a lone warrior who so happens to know about the Energems and team up with Heckyl.
Finding out about the Power Rangers, Arcanon sent Doomwing to pose as the Silver Ranger through messages in order to gain their trust while Arcanon tells Singe to find and destroy the Titano Zord. Singe was caught for being his double agent and retreated back to Arcanon, while Doomwing continued to trick the Rangers.
After Leisure and Loafer were destroyed, Doomwing had gotten his hands on the information to create Dino Chargers for the Rangers' Zords and Megazord combinations to "destroy the Dark Energem". When in reality, Doomwing had given the info to Arcanon, thus another advantage for his conquest.
Lord Arcanon, Singe, and Doomwing returns to Earth and confronts Heckyl/Snide, Fury, Wrench, and Fortress. Lord Arcanon explains to Heckyl that he's hired Sledge to capture the outlaws for him. Lord Arcanon uses his energy blast to outmatch Heckyl. Heckyl transforms into Snide and fires the Magna Beam on Fortress, and destroys the city.
Lord Arcanon has stolen the Rangers' Zords for the use against Fortress, Lord Arcanon, Singe, and Doomwing join forces to take out Snide and Fortress with Plesio Charge Megazord Pachy-Rex Formation. While Fortress outmatch Plesio Charge Megazord Pachy-Rex Formation, Lord Arcanon was furious and ordered Doomwing to send more Zords. After the Zords failed, Lord Arcanon and Doomwing used the Dino Charge Megazord while Singe used the Ptera Charge Megazord Para-Raptor Formation against Fortress. Fortress successfully defeats Ptera Charge Megazord Para-Raptor Formation, Lord Arcanon was not pleasant as Snide had defeated "all of the Zords". Although Doomwing proposed that they've had not tried the Titano Zord, Arcanon was so furious that he had smacked the charger out of his hand, claiming that the chargers were useless and only came for the Energems. He then decided to have a "new plan" before taking his leave, not knowing that he had left the Titano Charger behind for the Rangers to take. After Fortress is destroyed by the Dino Charge Ultrazord, Lord Arcanon had been waiting for Heckyl to lose, just so he could torture him personally.
He, Singe, and Doomwing captured him and took him to the ship. Lord Arcanon and Singe put Heckyl back into solitary confinement, Singe announces that Lord Arcanon is taking over Sledge's ship. If Fury, Wrench, Poisandra, and Curio disobey Lord Arcanon's orders, they'll deal with Singe. Lord Arcanon says that Heckyl will behave as long as he has the Dark Energem and none of the Rangers will survive.
The next day, Arcanon's new plan all along was to send Doomwing to trick the Rangers again as the Silver Ranger which failed because of the tenth mentioned Titano Charger being missing from the other nine that Doomwing created. After Doomwing returned from his mission with placing the listener on Tyler's Dino Com, he, Doomwing, and Wrench attempted to eave drop on the rangers through a special radio. Unfortunately for them, the Rangers found out about this and tricked them into thinking that Tyler went on his own to fight Doomwing. After Doomwing and Zenowing had been separated by Kendall's Split Emitters, Arcanon grew Doomwing with the Magna Beam in an attempt to crush the rangers. Even when Doomwing still had the Silver Energem, Arcanon tells him that the Energem only bonded to Zenowing because he was good while he is evil, therefore he will never morph into a Ranger. Doomwing tried to do it but failed, thus Arcanon had lost his faith in his creation to the point of calling him worthless, much to Doomwing's humiliation.
Lord Arcanon gives Doomwing one last chance to destroy Zenowing and fuse with him forever. Lord Arcanon is furious with Doomwing that Keeper saved Zenowing and the Rangers from his attack. Lord Arcanon sends Doomwing to attack Zenowing in order to capture him, using the Dark Energem to fuse with him. Riley finds Zenowing and fires the Green Prism Slash at Doomwing and saves Zenowing while the Dark Energem was flown away into the woods. Lord Arcanon orders Singe and Fury to find the Dark Energem in the forest, he was once again furious with Doomwing at another failure. He is about to destroy Doomwing, but the Rangers stop them. Lord Arcanon leaves Doomwing dealing with the Rangers. After the following defeat of Doomwing, Singe reports to Lord Arcanon that Doomwing was destroyed by the Silver Ranger, but he successfully found the Dark Energem in the forest. Suddenly, Heckyl angrily blames Lord Arcanon for destroying his homeworld, Sentai 6. Lord Arcanon orders Singe and Fury to put Heckyl back into solitary confinement once again.
After Snide's plan with Professor Strickler, Nightmare, and Game Face had failed, Arcanon was not happy about this and warned Snide that splitting him from Heckyl better pay off or he would destroy him. Once Wrench activated the Split Emitters on Snide, Arcanon was full of joy when he had witnessed the devices actually working on Snide and Heckyl before separating from each other for good. With Heckyl in solitary confinement, Snide himself was in Arcanon's possession as his general.
Arcanon Pays the Price
Lord Arcanon sends Conductro and Screech to turn everyone into zombies with their hypnotic orchestrated music in order to obtain the Energems. Despite their retreat, he gave them another chance to get back at the Rangers. Despite Snide's offer to participate, he rejected him due to allowing Heckyl to escape when he was supposed to kill him. Afterward, Arcanon then proceeds to let the Musician Duo overwhelm the Rangers with the infected populace.
After their record player was destroyed, Arcanon revealed himself to the Rangers and the scheme was actually a front from the real threat. He planned to destroy the Rangers himself using the corrupt powers of the Dark Energem. He made the Rangers witness its true purpose as he undergoes a transformation into a hideous, green-faced, horned monster. He then unleashed his attack on the Rangers along with destroying the entire warehouse they were in. Just as he was about to kill the Rangers, Ivan intervenes and helped his team fight against Arcanon, Conductro, and Screech. At first glance, they've been believed to be destroyed, but Arcanon and his cronies survive, which shocks the rangers. Arcanon calls in the Magna Beam to make himself grow to carry on the fight. It proved this by each of the Ultrazord's powerful attacks, they prove to be futile against him. Arcanon sadistically ensnared the Ultrazord in his energy line and blasted them with a full-throttle of his mouth laser. The Rangers work together to destroy Lord Arcanon using the Ultra Plasma Final Blast attack. After being defeated by the Dino Charge Ultrazord, he landed somewhere in the forest where he was on his knees, weakened from the battle, and looked for the Dark Energem. As he was about to reclaim it, someone stepped on the container, revealing to be none other than his long lost bounty hunter, Sledge.
Arcanon was very relieved that he was alive and thought that he was destroyed. Sledge demanded the bounty Arcanon promised him. Arcanon was willing to pay his employee in space bullion, but instead, Sledge installed the Dark Energem into his firearm for himself, much to Arcanon's dismay.
Arcanon attempted to threaten Sledge with Singe, Conductro, and Screech by his side to defeat him, thinking that he was alone. But in turn, Sledge was the one who had the advantage over his ex-employer with his whole crew together along with Snide. Arcanon was very infuriated with Snide's betrayal and Snide claimed that he has always been two-faced, much to Arcanon's astonishment. Together with Sledge's empowered arm gun and Snide's sword slashes, they ultimately destroy Arcanon, Singe, Conductro, and Screech, thus ending the warlord's reign of terror for good.
The rangers later went back in time to destroy Sledge's Crew once and for all, after when the Dark Energem created a black hole that destroyed Earth. After when the Rangers went back to their own time periods, Heckyl and Zenowing went to Sentai 6 to protect the Dark Energem from being taken again. where they presumably destroy Arcanon during his attempt to steal the Dark Energem.
He is a ruthless, cruel, arrogant, and sociopathic megalomaniac who will take any opportunity to assert his dominance over his prisoners and underlings alike, including his employees. Most unsettlingly, Arcanon has been shown that he is a pure sadist when it comes to torturing outlaws such as Heckyl, corrupting Zenowing to become Doomwing, and doesn't care when he is destroying planets such as Sentai 6, just to get whatever he wants in the palm of his hands, like the Dark Energem for instance.
Arcanon's often accompanied by Singe due to his loyalty to him and he has some form of respect for Singe. However, whenever Singe fails, he would criticize him for being a weakling. During Singe's time with infiltrating Heckyl, he questioned Singe him about his assignment with finding the Titano Zord and getting the Energems.
His relationship with Doomwing was pretty much at first appreciating his worth but it was all due to the fact that he was the Silver Dino Charge Ranger with Zenowing in his control but when he got separated, he berated him and called him worthless, indicating Arcanon had begun to lose faith in his creation. When Doomwing pleaded for a second chance, he gave him that but warned him not to underestimate the rangers otherwise he would be killed trying. By the time when Doomwing was being delayed with capturing his other half, Arcanon had grown impatient with him and threatened him that if he could not capture Zenowing, he would've taken no hesitance to destroy him and pick the Silver Energem from his ashes. When Doomwing's plan had failed due to interception from Riley, Arcanon decided to end him himself and even went as far as abandoning him to the rangers mercies.
His relationship with Snide is that he at first doesn't trust him because of his first Megazord battles with him and the fact he was Heckyl's split personality. However knowing that this is not the case since Snide has had enough with being attached to Heckyl and wanted to seemingly serve the warlord, he accepted the deal and thought that with Snide on his side, he would be able to control him. However, by the time Heckyl escaped all because Snide decided to let him go, he called Snide useless in spite of volunteering to destroy the Rangers, implying that he had not forgotten about what happened and banishes him from his sight. By the time he finds out that Snide betrayed him, he was downright mortified and infuriated with him.
Despite his high intelligence and manipulative nature, he would tend to be narrow-minded when doubting the Dino Chargers that Doomwing created was any of use and he even left the Titano Charger behind, without thinking that the Rangers would find out about the Silver Ranger and how Arcanon had gained possession of the rangers Zords and Megazords. He even fell for the Rangers' plan to trick him through his listener that Doomwing used into thinking that one Ranger is coming alone. This shows that he is also extremely arrogant and egomaniacal, and puts his own ends above all else, as well as thinking that he deserves to have the power. He relishes in gloating and taunting, as he confidently mocks the Rangers for seemingly falling into his trap, just as he reveals his final form.
Even without the Dark Energen's empowerment, Arcanon is a powerful warrior in his own right. His only rivals in power were Heckyl (merged with Snide), Snide, and Sledge, Even then, he has shown greater proficiency in battle than the three of them due to having more variance in abilities. This is hinted by Heckyl/Snide having to be strategic in their dealings with Arcanon. Additionally, it was stated Sledge feared Arcanon, and the only time Sledge was confident facing Arcanon was when having the Dark Energem in his possession.
When he is empowered by the Dark Energem, Arcanon is the most powerful enemy ever faced by the Dino Charge Rangers. Having utilized the Dark Energem for millions of years, Arcanon mastered it to the point of being the only one in existence without a split-persona from bonding to it.
The evidence lies in his battle against the Dino Charge Rangers. His power was beyond recognition that he obliterated entire buildings around him and can survive finishers from the Rangers. When grown by the Magnabeam, he was proven to be durable enough to take blows from the Ultrazord. He even had a strong energy lasso to ensnare the Ultrazord and energy blasts from his mouth. He was so powerful that it only took one of the Ultrazord's most powerful attack to defeat him with the power of ten Energems against his one Energem, and even then he survived back in his normal size. It took a massive energy blast by Sledge using the Dark Energem to finally put Arcanon down for good.
Powers and Abilities
- Strength: Arcanon is on the same level of strength with Sledge and Snide but stronger than Heckyl, Singe, Fury, Wrench, Poisandra, Curio, and Doomwing all together. Despite his elderly appearance, he's held enough power to destroy whole planets into barren wastelands with no effort.
- Durability: Lord Arcanon had extremely thick skin, enabling him to survive the destruction of his super form although he was apparently critically wounded seeing as he was crawling about. It took the combined power of Sledge's Dark Energem-empowered gun and Snide's sword waves at once to kill him.
- Energy Beams: Lord Arcanon can fire a large orange energy beam from his hand that, although only used during his first scene, was strong enough to counter Heckyl's lightning beam and even send him flying.
- Levitation: Arcanon was able to project a silver sonic wave from his hand that made Heckyl levitate.
- Teleportation: He can teleport to any location by vanishing in an explosive red flash.
- Longevity: Arcanon has existed for at least 65 million years seeing as he was the one who hired Sledge to find Keeper in the first place.
- Master Strategist: Lord Arcanon nearly defeated the Rangers on five different occasions.
- Strength: Lord Arcanon has now become the most deadly villain in Dino Charge, able to take down six Rangers with ease and throwing the Ultrazord around with a single hand and his energy whip.
- Durability: Lord Arcannon is now more durable as shown when he took the full-on blast from the Victory Final Strike, the Ptera Saber Final Strike, and the Silver Prism Slash full-on in the face, causing a massive explosion, without a scratch, When giant, neither the Ultrazord's Para Zord Blast nor the Bladed Raptor Slash had any effect on his immensely thick skin and the Dino Head Spike just made him laugh.
- Enlargement: Lord Arcanon can make himself grow by shouting out "Magna Beam".
- Fires of Chaos: Arcanon's strongest attack. He can fire a large green energy cloud from his hand into the air, opening a portal in the sky to rain down flaming meteors. They would then fall down onto his enemies and explode, being powerful enough to take down all six Rangers with a single-use.
- Energy Whip: Arcannon can fire a green energy whip from his hand and throw it around his opponents to tie them up and leave them open to further attacks.
- Mouth Laser: Arcannon can fire a massive green laser from his mouth that is powerful enough to blast the Ultrazord a good few miles away from him.

- Dino Charger Copies: Copied Dino Chargers which grant him full access to the Zords and formations such as:
Behind the Scenes
- Lord Arcanon is voiced by Andrew Grainger.
- Lord Arcanon is the fourth main villain to be destroyed by another main villain, Sledge. The first, second, and third are Captain Mutiny, destroyed by Trakeena, Queen Bansheera, destroyed by Diabolico and Moltor, destroyed by Flurious.
- Curiously, except for Queen Bansheera, all the victims were adapted Sentai villains who were destroyed by a Power Rangers exclusive villain who takes over and becomes the final villain of the series.
- Just like Emperor Gruumm in Power Rangers SPD, where Cruger cut off one of Gruumm's horns on his head in a flashback (and again in "Endings Part II"), Lord Arcanon had two giant shoulder spikes until in "Wings of Danger" during a flashback, when Zenowing cut Arcanon's left shoulder spike off.
- Ironically, his appearance is very akin to the Pachy-Rex Formation's design, where it looks like a Megazord version of Arcanon, which was never addressed in Kyoryuger.
- In his final form in Worgworld, he used an attack he named the "Fires of Chaos", which could be a reference to his counterpart, Hundred-Faced High Priest Chaos, hence the name "Chaos".
- In his final form, Arcanon looks the same as his original form, except for his face.
- Unlike Heckyl and Zenowing who gained a separate consciousness in their new forms, the new form Arcanon gained from bonding with the Dark Energem was merely a power-up, likely because he is already evil unlike the other two.
