History

Samurai

Professor Cog is first seen fighting the SkyRev Megazord in a duel against the SkyRev Megazord which he seems to lose but it is revealed that he used a shield to protect himself and fled.

Professor Cog vs. the SkyRev Megazord.

Cog and an army of Grinders escape to another dimension to seek help from Master Xandred in order to gather toxic Sanzu River water for Venjix to use to fatally poison all of Corinth. He says that he will help them in exchange for taking down the Samurai Rangers so he teams up with Sergeant Tread. His mission is either to kill the Samurai Rangers or, at the very least, delay them until General Gut's Mooger army can attack and conquer Panorama City.

Scott Truman follows Professor Cog to the other dimension. When Professor Cog attacks Scott, the Samurai Rangers join the fight but Professor Cog then sends the other Samurai Rangers into a vortex leading to Professor Cog's world whilst Professor Cog's Hypno-Bolts start to kick in on both Red Rangers, causing them to fight.

When the Hypno-Bolts kick in, Professor Cog and Sergeant Tread watch Jayden and Scott duel each other since they have come straight to the battlefield. After the effects of the Hypno-Bolts were negated thanks to Mentor Ji giving them a special seal, Jayden and Scott then fight Professor Cog, who sends Sergeant Tread to attack. After knocking down Sergeant Tread, Jayden and Scott fight Professor Cog and easily overwhelm him with Shark Attack Mode and Super Samurai Mode until the other Rangers return.

With help from the other Samurai Rangers, who have since returned from the RPM World, Scott Truman and Jayden manage to destroy Professor Cog and Sergeant Tread by energy slashing him with five of the Rangers whilst rapidly shooting him with Scott's Nitro Blaster and Cog is given an almighty double energy slash with Scott reminding Professor Cog that he promised to hunt down and stop him earlier during their duel.

Super Megaforce

Three years later, Professor Cog is somehow rebuilt despite Venjix's defeat and frees the Turbo Falcon Zord from where it has been stored after Doctor K determined it as wild. This release triggered a distress signal to the Mega Rangers that leads them to Corinth. By the time the Mega Rangers found out it was a trap, Professor Cog attacks Earth, but this put him in the crosshairs of Prince Vekar and his X Borgs and a brawl erupts. Cog and Vekar's forces battle until, much to their shock, the Rangers make it back at which point Cog, the Grinders, and the Armada team up to try and destroy the Rangers. He battles the Super Mega Rangers who morph into the Ranger Operators and defeat the henchmen before overpowering the good Professor with their signature attacks and Cog is finally knocked down by the Street Saber Strike. Troy then summons the Super Mega Cannon and blast Professor Cog with a Super Mega Blast, but he survives and enlarges himself without the Maximizer much to Levira's shock. Unfortunately for Cog, the Rangers combine with the Turbo Falcon Zord to form the Legendary RPM Megazord, which easily overpowers him. With the Legendary RPM Grand Prix, Professor Cog is destroyed once and for all. Tvicon.png TV STORY-In the Driver's Seat

Legacy

With Professor Cog eliminated, this seemed to be the permanent end of the Venjix Virus' influence since the Grinders never returned and Corinth thrived. However, this was later proven to be false since it was revealed six years later that Venjix survived his annihilation and became Evox who established a new army.

Personality

Professor Cog was a ruthless, callous, and arrogant psychopath who stopped at nothing to destroy Earth, all the for the sake of Venjix. In spite of his brutish personality, he was also quite deceptive and cunning, being able to trick the Red RPM Ranger with ease in battle.

    • Hatred Inducement: Anyone struck with Professor Cog's Hypno-Bolts would instantly turn and try to slay each other.

Abilities

Powers and Abilities

Powers

  • Earthquake: By slamming his foot to the ground, Professor Cog cause an earthquake after being rebuilt.
  • Chest Laser Barrage: Professor Cog retained the ability to fire a barrage of red colored energy lasers from the Gatling gun on his chest. However, they were stronger since they were powerful enough to take down all five Rangers with one blast.
  • Sprocket Spiral: Professor Cog could fire massive transparent energy gears from his head and chest that will slam into his enemies. This was an upgraded version of his Electro Turbine ability and was strong enough to take down all six Rangers with a single blast as well as knock back the Legendary and Q-Rex Megazords with one blast.
  • Enlarging: After being rebuilt, Professor Cog was able to grow himself into a giant by concentrating his remaining energy into himself. This did not require the use of the Maximizer.

Abilities

  • Strength: Professor Cog was shown to be more powerful, strong enough to take down a Mega Ranger with every smack.
  • Durability: Professor Cog was more durable than before, surviving the Super Mega Cannon's Super Mega Blast with little more than a scratch.
  • Hand to Hand Combat: Professor Cog is more skilled in combat than before, being able to hold his own in battle against all six Mega Rangers until they started using their special attacks.

Weaknesses

to be added

Arsenal

  • Screwdriver Lance: Professor Cog retained his screwdriver-like lance for combat. However, unlike before, his screwdriver lance was on his left arm instead of his right.
    • Lightning Blasts: Professor Cog could fire a massive lightning blast from his screwdriver lance after being rebuilt. The said attack was so powerful that it took the combined power of the Turbo Cannon and Rocket Booster to counter it.
  • Wrench Arm: Professor Cog retained his massive wrench arm for combat but like the Screwdriver Lance, it had switched to his right arm instead.

Notes

  • Professor Cog was the only enemy in Megaforce to be a returning legacy villain.
  • Professor Cog's design differed in his two appearances, having a screwdriver on his left arm and a wrench on his right arm in "Clash of the Red Rangers" and vice versa in "In the Driver's Seat."
    • This was due to fact that the different designs of Professor Cog were separate Sentai counterparts (the one from Gokaiger/Super Megaforce being the "son" of the original).
      • This was changed because they were so similar in design that the writer decided to just make them the same character.
  • Professor Cog's Shinkenger counterpart was able to make himself grow along with Tread's counterpart and they had a Zord battle, which was cut because all of the RPM Rangers and their Zords were in the battle but not this episode.
    • This Zord fight would have probably been adapted if not for the issues with the Screen Actors Guild.
