"Raaaaa! Now you've got a big problem!"
―Robtish when turning into a Mega-Monster.[src]

"Huh? What?!"
―Robtish reacting to the Battlewing Megazord charging up its finisher and his last words before his second death.[src]

Robtish is a warrior-themed Scottish accented Nighlok who is the older brother of Steeleto. He has 2 squinted eyes and red skin along with a helmet with spikes and a fierce grin with fangs. His upper body, which resembles an angry beast, is based on the Otoroshi (おとろし?). He serves as the main antagonist of the episodes "Test of the Leader" and "Jayden's Challenge".


Robtish was one of Nighloks. He was a fierce warrior among them and it is also stated by Octoroo that all other Nighloks fear him. Robtish wielded a sword in battle and could fire powerful sonic attacks from his helmet. In the eleventh episode, Robtish was sent by Octoroo to destroy Jayden. He attacked Panorama City and encountered the Samurai Rangers. Robtish knocked out all the Rangers, except Jayden and battled him. However, Deker interrupted, as he only considered Jayden as his opponent. After a long fight, which ended with Jayden holding his and Mike's Spin Swords at the two's neck, Robtish started to dry out and was forced to retreat.Tvicon.png TV STORY-Test of the Leader

Robtish returned in the next episode, ready to battle Jayden again. He attacked the city once more and encountered the Rangers. He again used his sonic attacks, but the Rangers now worked together and protected Jayden from it. Jayden then combined the Fire Smasher in the Bazooka Mode with the Tiger Disk to form the Five Disk Tiger Cannon, which destroyed Robtish. The Nighlok returned as a Mega Monster and summoned some Flying Moogers into action to help him defeat the Rangers' Samurai Megazord. However the Rangers summoned the Samurai Battlewing although Kevin came up with the idea to combine it with the Samurai Megazord, forming the new Battlewing Megazord. It easily destroyed the Moogers and quickly disarmed Robtish with a slash up his front. Now helpless, Robtish was destroyed for good by the Battlewing Megazord's Flying Slash.Tvicon.png TV STORY-Jayden's Challenge

Robtish later attended a Halloween party at the Nighlok Heaven where he recounts his battles with the Samurai Rangers. The other Nighloks for some reason get along with him well despite what Octoroo said in his debut. He gets scared at the sight of the Red Ranger pumpkin that Dreadhead used. When the party is over, Robtish tells Rofer that next year they should not talk about the Rangers before leaving the place with his brother Steeleto. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Party Monsters


Robtish was a fierce, brutal, and ruthless Nighlok, who will stop at nothing to destroy the Power Rangers and especially Jayden. However he also has a comedic side, mostly due to his Scottish accent. Despite the short time he spent with Steeleto at the Hallowen party, it is very clear that Robtish has a very good relationship with his little brother.

Powers and Abilities


  • Energy Blasts: Robtish can shoot yellow energy blasts from his hands.
  • Gap Teleportation: Robtish can teleport using gaps.
  • Sonic Shockwave: Robtish can fire transparent soundwaves from the two eye-like structures on his helmet that are powerful enough to hold his opponents in place and even cause explosions that can knock them aside.
  • Enlarging: Robtish can enlarge himself at will.


  • Strength: In terms of pure physical strength, Robtish is the second strongest Nighlok in Samurai (with only Arachnitor beating him). Single slashes of his sword took down Rangers and he could knock Jayden down with one kick.
  • Durability: Robtish has extremely tough skin to protect him, letting him shrug off several hits from the Spin Swords without reacting at all.
  • Weapon Master: Robtish is an absolute master of his sword, taking on all five Rangers and even Deker effortlessly.
  • Flying Moogers Summoning: Robtish can summon Flying Moogers to aid him in battle.


  • Sanzu River Reliance: Like all Nighloks, Robtish cannot stay away from the Sanzu River for too long or he will dry up.


  • Falchion: Robtish wields a massive falchion-like sword in battle.
    • Double Slash: Robtish's signature attack where he would charge up his sword with white energy to release three energy slashes of the same color into the field. This was more than enough to take down, demorph, and severely injure all five Rangers. The only way this was defeated was by four Rangers stopping it with their Spin Swords and Jayden destroying him with the Five Disk Tiger Cannon before he could react.

Behind the Scenes


  • Robtish is voiced by Peter Daube who, in contrary to Robitsh's accent, is American and not Scottish.
    • Robtish's voice, albeit without its heavy Scottish brogue, would later be used for future roles from Daube such as Stingrage and Boxertron.
