Making Waves is the fourth episode of Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel. It features the debut of the Sub Surfer Zord and the Sub Surfer Ninja Megazord.


When a monster threatens Summer Cove, the Ninja Steel Rangers tap into the power of a brand new Megazord!


Doomwave puts his drone in the waters of Summer Cove to flood it, but when Odius presses the button to activate the machine, nothing happens. Doomwave then says that some drone broke his machine and he fixes it.

Aaron and Jackie go on a date, but it goes wrong because of the Hayley and Sarah. The parents then learn to work together.

It turns out turns out to be Aaron's drone that broke the Tsunami Machine. The Rangers piece together the pieces of metal from the net and it makes the Galaxy Warriors symbol. The rangers find Doomwave fixing the Tsunami Machine, but the Rangers battle him.

He puts his machine in the sea and starts the tidal wave, but the Rangers use Aaron's drone, the Custom Net Cannon to break the drone. Levi and Brody then destroy Doomwave. He gets gigantified, but Mick sends them the Sub Surfer Star to destroy Doomwave with the Sub Surfer Ninja Megazord.

Victor and Monty pretend to catch a fish so that Victor can get his 50th trophy. But Captain Stan finds out that it is fake, Victor and Monty flee.


Ninja Power Stars


  • The creation of the Sub Surfer Star is not fully explained as a vision of it is not shown to the audience.
  • Doomwave's tsunami machine malfunctioned because it collided with the diver-drone's net. This actually does not make any sense, considering that the underwater tsunami machine was made to be underwater. The fact that it short circuited over a fish net is not logical. 
  • This entire episode's plot is an error within itself, as Madame Odius and Doomwave's plan is very flawed. If they wipe Summer Cove out with a tsunami, then the Power Stars would be lost, making it harder and practically impossible for them to find.
    • It also does not help that since Ninja Steel first aired, the only objective of the Galaxy Warriors competition was to get the Power Stars from the Rangers, not harm the Earth. Harming the Earth only played a small part in their plans. This episode failed to convey that.


  • As of this episode, Calvin is the only Ranger to have neither parent appear in an episode as:
  • This episode reveals that all of the Rangers come from single-parent families. In fact, Mick is the only character introduced in the series, confirmed to have both parents.
  • This is the first time the parents of the Rangers date.
    • The dating aspect could be following the two previous episodes as all three aired around Valentine's Day.
  • When the Sub Surfer Ninja Megazord defeated Doomwave, the Power Rangers theme composed by Ron Wasserman was played with a special verse: All Together Power Rangers.
