Tough Love is the third episode of Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel. It features the debut of the Red Ranger's Ninja Super Steel Mode.


Levi tries to change himself to impress a mysterious street performer.


Spyclops and Madame Odius make a spell disguised as a piece of music to make a ranger Evil.

The rangers are in town and Levi hears a girl named Jess sing one of his songs and the talks to her. The rangers battle basherbots in the town. Levi and Jess meet up but are attacked by a Basherbots, but Jess destroys it. Levi goes with the rangers and Jess reveals that she’s just Spyclops’ human form.

Levi changes his look for Jess, and sings her spell (disguised as a song) and turns Evil. They battle the rangers but Preston breaks the spell. They battle Spyclops and destroy her with the Red Tornado Strike. She is Gigantified but destroyed by the Ninja Fusion Zord.

Levi apologies, and Victor and Monty come in smelling disgusting because of the Cowboy Cologne they used to try to get Jess’ love.
