Matacore is a crab-themed elite guard of The Armada who served as the main antagonist of the episode "Samurai Surprise."

History

Matacore had been serving Emperor Mavro for some time before he was sent to aid his incompetent son Prince Vekar in slaying the Super Mega Rangers. He initially arrived on the Armada Mothership and cut down two X-Borg guards before introducing himself and his help is quickly accepted.

He later accompanies with Argus, Vekar, and some X Borgs, so Vekar can declare his mastery of the planet. Despite having the upper hand, he retreats along with Argus, due to Prince Vekar being hurt in battle, and is teleported due to the interference of Levira and Damaras.

He returns to Earth, soon afterwards, to battle the Mega Rangers again, this time only with the aid of X Borgs. He is overwhelmed by the Super Mega Rangers using their new Samurai powers and destroyed by the Super Mega Saber's Final Strike. Matacore is enlarged and overpowered the Legendary Wild Force Megazord, even stopping the Mega Roar finisher, but he was finally destroyed by the new Legendary Samurai Megazord and its Legendary Fire Smasher attack.

Personality

As an elite guard of Marvo, Matacore is headstrong and tought, he will do anything in his power to destroy the Rangers and take over the Earth, but despite this however, he is very loyal to Prince Vekar and will stop the battle to aid him if needed.

Powers and abilities

Despite being one of the more earlier monsters in Super Megaforce, Matacore (while not quite as strong Shadow Serpent or Rotox and his DX form) is shown to be very powerful.

  • Strength: Matacore posses a great deal of strength, being able to overpower all five Rangers with ease.
  • Hand-To-Hand Combat: In addition to his raw strength, Mantacore is also a skiled fighter, being able to avoid the Rangers' strikes while being able to subduced them.
  • Extraordinary Leaper: Matacore can leap at an incredible distance.

Arsenal

  • Elite Sword: Matacore carries a large blue sword to aid him in combat, it is strong enough to block the Legendary Wild Force Megazord's Mega Roar.
    • Energy Slash: Matacore can charge up his sword with blue energy and slash at the enemy with full force.
    • Reflection:  Matacore can reflect an enemies' energy based attack with his sword.
    • Sword Wave: Matacore can charge up his sword with blue energy and fire a blue energy wave from it. This was his signature attack which took down all five Rangers and destroyed part of a building with one hit each.

Behind the scenes

Portrayal

  • Matacore is voiced by Richard Simpson who also voiced Galvanax from Power Rangers Ninja Steel.
    • Matacore sounds almost exactly the same as Galanax although he has a slightly less gruff voice.

Notes

  • Matacore is the first monster to be faced by the Legendary Samurai Megazord.
  • Matacore bears some similarities to Morticon, the major antagonist of Power Rangers Mystic Force.
    • This is because they are both based upon a cyclops like monster.
  • Matacore is the only Elite Guard of Emperor Mavro whose name isn't based around his color scheme. The other other Royal Guards seen were Redker and Yellzor.
