"Who dares to disturb me? Wait, what's this about a present?"
―Shadow Serpent's first lines after being summoned to the surface of his lake by Bigs.[src]

"Even with my shadowy past, now my appetite's grown even BIGGER!"
―Shadow Serpent after being enlarged by the Zombats.[src]

"No! I guess I bit off more than I can chew! Ahhh!"
―Shadow Serpent's final words before his death.[src]

Shadow Serpent was a snail/serpent-themed Toxic Mutant who served as the main antagonist of the episode "Man and Machine."

History

The Shadow Serpent is first seen in a beach-like wasteland and is hired by the Toxic Beasts and Vrak to deal with Robo Knight and the Mega Rangers. He first takes the shadows from a construction worker and a hot dog maker and finally the shadows of a young boy's parents. He confronts Robo Knight and the two fought until the Mega Rangers came in. The Shadow Serpent was a formidable opponent and he easily took out the Rangers with ease. The sun was setting and as such, he was forced to retreat since his powers would soon be useless. After a conversation with Bigs, Bluefur, and Vrak at his place, Shadow Serpent realizes that the Rangers are clever so he will outsmart them. The next day, Shadow Serpent comes by a train bridge and is about to take the shadows of the train and a whole crowd of people but the Mega Rangers use their Mega Blasters to blast his tongue away. They are outmatched but Robo Knight returns to take on this monster, so they attempt to block off the sun by creating a large cloud, but Shadow Serpent easily takes it out with an energy blast. Robo Knight attempts to take on Shadow Serpent himself but he is quickly outmatched so the Rangers come in to aid him but the same thing happens to them as well. They attempt to use the Megaforce Blaster's Dynamic Victory Charge on him but he easily blocks it. The Rangers then go head on but that proves to be a huge mistake as Shadow Serpent manages to take their shadows which is revealed to be a trick for Robo Knight to get a clear hit on Shadow Serpent and give the Rangers back their shadows. With Shadow Serpent weakened, Robo Knight is easily able to outmatch Shadow Serpent and he finally defeats him with the Vulcan Cannon's Knight Dynamic. However, Shadow Serpent survives and calls for Vrak to aid him.

Thw Shadow Serpent is then enlarged by the Zombats so Robo Knight transforms into the Lion Mechazord to form the Gosei Grand Megazord and the Rangers unleash the Gosei Great Megazord. They do battle with Shadow Serpent and have the upper hand at first but the mutant bashes back the Megazords and takes them out with an extremely powerful fireball, dispatching them back into their Zord forms. However, the Zords are able to fight back and the Rangers receive a card that lets the all eight of the Zords combine into a new Megazord: the Gosei Great Grand Megazord. As much as he tries, Shadow Serpent is no match and was beaten down by the Gosei Great Grand Megazord's Land Lance Attack, stunned by the Sea Spike Attack, and finally tortured by the Sky Spear Attack. Shadow Serpent isn't finished yet and claims that he will never be defeated as long as the sun shines but is summarily obliterated by the Victory Charge Dual Strike.

Personality

A formidable warrior, the Shadow Serpent was cunning in battle and a glutton for shadows. However, his overconfidence proved to be his undoing as the teamwork between his enemies allows them to overcome him. He was compared by his comrades to Creepox because of his strength and arrogance.

Powers and Abilities

Powers

  • Power-The Shadow Serpent was one of the most powerful monsters in Megaforce, having a huge arsenal of abilities, being able to nearly overpower both the Mega Force Rangers and Robo Knight in battle. It took the power of the new Gosei Great Grand Megazord to take him down for good.
  • Shadow Stealing: The Shadow Serpent's signature ability where he could use his tongue to grab the victim and/or object's shadow and consume them.
  • Teleportation: The Shadow Serpent could teleport to any location at will.
  • Head Bash: The Shadow Serpent could swing his head to bash the enemy.
  • Energy Blast: The Shadow Serpent could charge himself up with blue energy and fire an energy blast of the same color from his body. It was powerful enough to take out the storm clouds that were made by the Rangers.
  • Energy Lasers: The Shadow Serpent could fire blue energy lasers from the guns located on top of his wrists.
  • Mouth Fireballs: The Shadow Serpent could spew out powerful fireballs from his mouth which have a bit of a homing effect.
    • Fireball Split: If an opponent shot the fireball, it will split into four and attack them head on.
    • Super Heated Mouth Fireballs: An upgraded form of his mouth fireballs when enlarged, Shadow Serpent could spew out light blue fireballs.
  • Communication: The Shadow Serpent was able to communicate with Vrak in order to have him summon the Zombats.
  • Mouth Energy Beam: The Shadow Serpent's strongest attack where he can spew out super strong sea blue energy beams from his mouth. It was powerful enough to take out all five Megaforce Rangers in a row and both the Gosei Great Megazord and the Gosei Grand Megazord in one shot.

Abilities

  • Underwater Breathing: The Shadow Serpent could breathe underwater as seen in his lake.
  • Strength: The Shadow Serpent was able to overpower all five Megaforce Rangers with ease and throw Robo Knight with great force. When he grew giant, he was able to best both the Gosei Great Megazord and the Gosei Grand Megazord in battle.
  • Durability-The Shadow Serpent was barely fazed by Robo Knight's Knight Dynamic finisher and all of the Gosei Great Grand Megazord's attacks had little to no effect on him. The only thing capable of destroying him was the Megazord's Grand Strike.

Weaknesses

  • Setting Sun: Shadow Serpent's powers are rendered useless whenever the sun sets.

Arsenal

  • Fists-The Shadow Serpent initially only fought with his bare hands but still managed to easily defeat the Rangers and Robo Knight.
    • Energy Punch: The Shadow Serpent could charge up his fist with blue energy to land a powerful punch.
  • Arm Blades: The Shadow Serpent could equip blades on both of his arms to battle.
    • Finisher Destroying-The Shadow Serpent's arm blades were powerful enough to block and destroy the Megaforce Blaster's Dynamic Victory Charge.
    • Energy Slashes: The Shadow Serpent is able to unleash blue energy slashes from his arm blades.
  • Snail Tail: Shadow Serpent possessed a long tail that had a great reach and could be used to bash his enemies with great force.
    • Tail Extension: The Shadow Serpent's tail could extend at great lengths to attack enemies from a far distance.
