"Come to me little laugh balls! You think laughter makes the world go round? I'm here to end that sound! My name's Nojoke and that's no joke. I want to silence laughter because it annoys me. So when people laugh, I TRAP THEM!"
―Nojoke's first words as he introduces himself to the Mega Rangers.[src]

"Ah! Wait! Ah!"
―Nojoke's final words before his initial defeat.[src]

"Now I can drink down the laughter in one giant gulp!"
―Nojoke after being enlarged by the Zombats.[src]

"This isn't funny!"
―Nojoke's final words before his death.[src]

Nojoke is a scorpion/Tengu-like Toxic Mutant who consumes human laughter as nourishment.

History

Nojoke is summoned by Bigs and Bluefur when Vrak comes up with the idea of toppling humanity through laughter, which he considers both a waste of time and an involuntary weakness that can very well be exploited, an idea which both amuses and intrigues Admiral Malkor.

Nojoke can trap anyone who laughs or giggles in a special gourd and whoever stays there for too long dissolves and is then drunk by the Mutant.

He ensnares Gia, Emma, Jake and Troy, forcing Noah and Robo Knight to work together and come up with a conjoined joke to oblige Nojoke to laugh and destroy the gourd himself.

Once free, the Megaforce Rangers ascends to Ultra Mode and makes short work of Nojoke.

His failure prompts Malkor to scold Vrak for the failure while commending the merits of his plan and tells him to have Nojoke to redeem himself. Vrak agrees and responds by sending the Zombats to enlarge Nojoke.

In the ensuing battle, Nojoke blows powerful winds against the Gosei Great and Gosei Grand Megazords.

The Sea Gosei Great Megazord is then formed to soak Nojoke's wings and render them useless, incapacitating him. Gosei Grand then attacks with the Grand Strike and finishes off Nojoke.

Personality

An oddball, bird-like, blundering Toxic Mutant who is seemingly annoyed with human laughter. He is, however, prone to laughing as a practical prankster himself, making him a hypocrite. He is overconfident in his abilities, which ultimately ends in his death when the Mega Rangers have the last laugh at their final battle and the joke ends up on him as he is killed.
