"And so will I. Hee hee hee. Oh ah ohh. What's that? Ooo ah oo. I've got a lump in my throat. Is what I hear the master's boat?"
―Octoroo's first words when responding to Jayden saying he'd do whatever it takes to stop the Nighlock and reacting to the reappearance of Xandred's Junk.[src]

"Ooh-ah-ooh, there's no one left but Octoroo. Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Well, so much for the boss' big plans. They've all gone down the drain!"
―Octoroo's final words before he sinks into the Sanzu river.[src]

Octoroo is one of Master Xandred's two followers, an elderly cephalopod-headed figure with a staff. Octoroo can often be seen mixing medicine for Master Xandred. He most often says "Ooh-ah-ooh!" before his sentence as well as a habit of rhyming. Octoroo is often the one to select and send other Nighloks to concoct their schemes to raise the Sanzu River waters, second only to Xandred or Serrator. He feels that everyone on the ship should be allies, believing all Nighloks to have the same common goal(s).

History

Octoroo is one of Xandred's loyal followers, who usually remains on his ship preparing medicines to help alleviate his master's headaches. He is the one who generally introduces various Nighlok to Xandred to help defeat the Power Rangers.

After Arachnitor boarded Xandred's ship, the Nighlok had a plan to force the Red Ranger to show the Sealing Symbol; Octoroo agreed out of fear. Upon learning of the plan, Octoroo poisoned the drinks that would be served to the Rangers at the Tengen Gate and attacked upon seeing Jayden drink. He then demanded him to show the Sealing Symbol in return for the antidote, but the plan was foiled when Antonio arrived before Deker followed up and took Jayden away. Octoroo then retreated back to the Netherworld. Tvicon.png TV STORY-The Tengen Gate

When Octoroo learns of Serrator's betrayal, he quickly informs Xandred of the treacherous Nightlok, causing Xandred to become enraged and venture out into the human world prematurely to deal with the situation personally. Xandred's arrival causes Serrator to flee, but he also begins to dry out at a rapid rate. After Xandred manages to regain Dayu's loyalty by repairing her harmonium, Octoroo quickly pushes his master back into the Netherworld before calling a Colossal Mooger Company in to distract the Rangers. As Octoroo places his master at the bottom of the Sanzu River to recuperate, Serrator arrives and easily threatens Octoroo into working with him. Tvicon.png TV STORY-The Master Returns

After Serrator's destruction, Octoroo took over the efforts to flood the Earth as well as reuniting with Dayu. It was he who sent the Nighlok Fiera to the surface knowing that her fire had the power to destroy the head of the Shiba house (not knowing that Jayden was not the actual head), and later sacrificed half his lifeforce to Gigertox in order to grant him a third life against the Rangers.

When he heard about Deker's demise, he told Dayu that since Deker is gone she has nothing left to lose. Octoroo said that a new sad tune about Deker may be able to revive Xandred and increase his power. After Master Xandred returned and absorbed Dayu, Octoroo briefly mourned Dayu's demise because she was the one who cured Xandred's headaches whenever she played the harmonium. Also by absorbing Dayu's humanity, Xandred gained immunity to drying out and the Sealing Symbol. As a result, it allowed the Sanzu River to finally flood the Earth. However, Octoroo did not accompany his master to the human world, who was eventually slain by the Rangers. With Xandred's death, the Sanzu River began withdrawing from the mortal realm and Xandred's ship sank with Octoroo on it, although his fate is not known.

Personality

Octoroo seems to be one of the smarter Nighloks since he is able to come up with complex strategies and counter-strategies with a large amount of knowledge and magic, and can make plans that are hard to follow, rash, and generally unpredictable. Xandred appreciates Octoroo's loyalty and allows him to remain on the ship due to his contributions. Octoroo has a habit of putting "Oh ah ohh" or "ooh ah ooo" in his speech and frequently makes seafood-related jokes.

While Octoroo is generally amicable with most Nighlok, he is ultimately loyal to Xandred and wishes to protect his master from other power-hungry Nighlok. However, he is helpless against stronger Nighlok as shown by how he quickly agreed to work with Arachnitor and later Serrator, although he may have been aware that he would not be able to serve Xandred if he was killed.

Notes

  • He is similar to Finster from Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers.
  • He is also similar to Kegler from Power Rangers Lost Galaxy.
  • He also has a schemer personality like Jinxer from Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue.
  • He is also shown to betray Master Xandred a couple of times, much like when Frax betrayed Ransik in Time Force. However, he is still the most loyal of Xandred's servants, though this is not saying much for the other servants.
  • Octoroo is one of two Nighloks as the final fate is unknown. The other being Sharkjaw.
  • The costume for Octoroo's exclusive America scenes has notable differences with the costume for the Sentai scenes, as the American costume shows Octoroo's mouth and the tentacles in the form of a mustache on either side of it while the Sentai ones show the tentacles always cover his mouth, also the eyes are smaller, the dark circles are darker, the ears and the head are much more pointed and larger, in addition to that his red outfit has the shoulder pads further apart from the neck than the suit of the Sentai.
