This article is about a/an episode in Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue.

The Cobra Strikes is the sixteenth episode of Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue. It features the temporary destruction of Diabolico, as well as the first appearance of the Lightspeed Solarzord and the Rangers' Battle Boosters.


Diabolico brings back his three generals merged as one monster, Troika, which the Rangers destroy with their new Battle Boosters. Diabolico then goes down himself and battles the Rangers, taking down the Supertrain Megazord. Ryan finds the cobra tattoo's power source, a cobra monster from the tomb, and destroys it, lifting the curse. He joins the Rangers and helps them defeat Diabolico with a new Zord combination - the Lightspeed Solarzord.
