Character History

Past

Morticon's past is completely unknown but, at some point, he gained leadership of the Morlocks under Octomus the Master. Whether he ever left the Underworld before the Master's sealing remains unclear but it is known that Koragg, The Knight Wolf joined the Morlock leadership sometime afterwards with no apparent questioning from Morticon.

Mystic Force

Even after Koragg unlocks the entrance to the Underworld, Morticon initially cannot leave the Pit because Koragg the Knight Wolf's magic isn't strong enough to free him. Morticon is initially seen berating Necrolai for giving him limited information about the surface world shortly after the defeat of the Dark Troll. He later sends Koragg to the surface with an army of Hidiacs to take over the city of Briarwood but he is thwarted by the Power Rangers Mystic Force. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Broken Spell

Morticon temporarily breaks through to the surface when Koragg robs the Mystic Titans of their Megazord power and uses it to free him. He lands a beat-down on the Mystic Dragon, ripping it apart and is about to make the final strike on Nick but he breaks free and uses a counter-spell to imprison Morticon once more.

Morticon is tricked by Necrolai into thinking that Koragg wants the Rangers' combination power for himself and unleashes a shock wave powerful enough to make parts of his throne room's ceiling collapse and destroy several Styxoids. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Legendary Catastros

Morticon's Death

Morticon manages to finally break free of the Underworld the Gargoyle of the Gates knocks the Titan Megazord into the Gates of the Underworld and proves to be very powerful. Once again in his giant form, Morticon easily defeats the Titan Megazord using his own form of the Dark Magic Strike. He bats away the Mystic Dragon with his sword while Nick goes to rescue Clare even as the other Rangers are beaten down by Morticon. Once Nick saves Claire and defeats Koragg, he arrives on Catastros (summoned by Clare) and forms the Centaurus Phoenix Megazord which overpowers Morticon very easily. They then form the Titan Megazord so he tries his Dark Magic Strike but his sword is frozen and the Rangers realize that Udonna is with them. With Morticon helpless, the Rangers and Udonna combine their powers and destroy the villain once and for all with the Mystic Strike. Morticon swears that Octomus will win in the end even with him gone before exploding, marking the end of the first leader of the Morlocks. Tvicon.png TV STORY-The Gatekeeper

Legacy

All that remained of Morticon was his sword which Koragg found and claimed for himself. He would later reforge it into another Wolf Saber (the original having been destroyed by Nick during their battle). With Morticon dead, Necrolai is able to successfully rejoin the Morlocks without fear of death and resurrects Calindor as Imperious to replace him. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Long Ago

Ultimately, Morticon's final words prove untrue since the power of magic ends up destroying the Master forever. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Mystic Fate

Personality

Morticon was a ruthless, headstrong, arrogant, and sometimes sadistic Morlock that will do anything is his power to take over the surface world and impress the Master. He also has a very short temper, being angered easily if things don't go his way. Contrasting his short temper, though, he was also quite determined to get out of the Underworld, and will sometimes frequently attack Koragg to get him out. He can also be very intimidating to Necrolai. He and Koragg have never gotten along, and have gotten into fights on at least two occasions. Because of his strength and skill in battle, especially with his sword, he considers himself to be the most powerful warrior of all time. However, despite his ruthless and arrogant personality, Morticon is genuinely faithful to the Master. He wanted to conquer the world for Octomus and was very polite with him. Morticon also said during his defeat that maybe he fell, but the Master will avenge him.

Powers and Abilities

Powers

  • Power: Morticon was an extremely powerful Morlock and is one of the most powerful servants of the Master. He was capable of battling Koragg and even defeating him and was also extremely fierce opponent for the Rangers and it took the power of the Titan Megazord, powered up by Udonna to defeat him. Morticon is surpassed only by the Master.
  • Super Physical Strength: Morticon possessed Herculean strength, able to hurl the Mystic Dragon (with the Mystic Phoenix riding it) with one arm with relative ease and even ripping it apart into the individual Zords with a single slash of his sword.
  • Durability: Although he was rarely hit by any attacks in the series, he was hit by the Centarus Phoenix Megazord's Fire Tail which knocked him down and didn't even wind him whereas it previously destroyed the Rock Troll.
  • Dark Magic Control Stream: Morticon could fire a continues stream of dark magic from his left hand to make his minions do what he ordered them to do.
  • Storm Creation: Morticon was able to create large, pitch black clouds in the skies over Briarwood, as proven by him saying "MY DARK MAGIC!" after the clouds over the city dissipated thanks to Claire.

Abilities

  • Skilled Fighter: Morticon was an incredibly good fighter in spite of his arrogant nature, being able to match Koragg during a sword fight and overwhelming all five Rangers in their Mystic Titan forms and even the Mystic Dragon with horrible ease.

Weaknesses

  • Immense Power-Morticon was so powerful that it took massive amounts of good magic to bring him out of the Underworld.
  • Sword-Morticon's powers were very reliant upon his sword as, without it, he was powerless and easy to destroy.

Arsenal

Morticon's sword

  • Fang of the Master: Morticon possessed a large sword made from the Master's fangs for combat. It was indeed a powerful weapon, able to block both the Titan Megazord's Titans Attack and the Mystic Dragons Fire Blast with ease, and able to take the Mystic Dragon down in one swing.
    • Energy Slash: Morticon could also charge up his energy with purple energy and swing his sword at full force. He only performed this once, as the opening attack of his last battle but it horribly shook up the Titan Megazord.
    • Energy Shockwave: Morticon could charge up his sword with golden energy and then stab it into the ground and unleash an energy shockwave. This was powerful enough to make parts of his throne room's ceiling collapse and destroy several Styxoids.
    • Dark Magic Strike: Morticon's signature attack where he could charge up his sword with dark magic spewing and will swing it at full force to unleash a devastating upward purple energy slash. It was strong enough to take the Titan Megazord down with one hit and mention to take the Rangers right out of their Mystic Titan forms and de-morph them.

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

Design

  • Morticon appeared to be an undead cyborg, with the machinery that comprised the bulk of his body fused to what remains of his blue skin.

Etymology

  • His name was a portmanteau of mortality and con as in convict since he was depicted as trapped in the Underworld for most of his appearances.

Notes

  • Morticon was the only villain in Mystic Force that never fought the Rangers in his human size. He was only ever small in the Underworld and was a default giant whenever he came to Earth.
    • Whether this was by choice or just how great his power remains unclear.
  • Morticon's origins were unclear although his counterpart's origins were explained in his final appearance. He was originally a High Zobil (the counterparts to the Styxoids) who proved himself to be immensely powerful to N'Ma/Octomus and was enhanced into his current form as a reward.
    • This was presumably omitted in Mystic Force because it was an extremely minor detail mentioned only in a throwaway line of dialogue.
