Typeface's virus gun.

Typeface[1] was a robotic keyboard/virus-themed contestant in Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel.

History

Typeface was sent by Madame Odius to disable the Ninja Steel Rangers' weapons via a computer virus. He first encounters the Red Ranger and a girl named Emma Harris and after the former left, he fights Brody after he morphs one on one before the Yellow, Blue, Pink, White, and Black Rangers have arrived. He then summoned Basherbots and battled the Red Ranger, but was kicked away by the Gold Ranger and overwhelmed by his strength. Typeface was then forced to retreat after he was blasted by Levi's Rockstorm Blast. He later returned with Badonna and some Basherbots and encounters all six of the Rangers. He fought Levi and Preston while Badonna and the Basher Bots took on the others. Typeface was able to easily overwhelm the Gold and Blue Rangers with ease. Even though Badonna was taken down by the Hyper Arrow Blast, he was able to infect Preston's Power Star after knocking him down to the ground and then left to come back later after he was kicked by the Gold Ranger. When he comes back in the Industrial Quarter and encounters all six of the Rangers again. The Rangers tried to fight him with their Element Star; Ninja Fire Attack but the virus has rendered them useless. He blasted them down with his eye lasers, rendering theirNinja Blasters useless before blasting them with the same attack again. Unfortunately for him, Emma fixed the weapons and Power Stars and they blasted Typeface down with the Ninja Blaster Whiplash which also destroyed his virus gun. A short fight then broke out, ending with Calvin energy slashing Typeface down. Typeface tried to fire energy lasers at them from his hands but it had no effect as Cal deflected the blasts with his Ninja Star Blade. Typeface was then destroyed by the Ninja Blasters and Rockstorm Guitar using a variant of their Ninja Blaster Final Attack.

Cosmo Royale made Typeface grow and the Rangers summoned the Blaze Zords and form the Ninja Blaze Megazord to take on Typeface. Typeface continually used his space key to teleport around, either dodging or at one point attacking their Megazord. Unfortunately for him, Brody summoned the Astro Zord which held him up in place place long enough for them to destroy him once and for all with the Ninja Blaze Megazord's Ranger Blast Final Attack. In his final moments, Typeface cursed not having cloned himself before plummeting to the ground and exploding on impact with the ground.

Personality

Typeface's personality could be considered similar to Hacktrack.

Powers and abilities

  • Strength: Typeface was quite strong, being able to easy overpower both the Blue and Gold Rangers with ease and knock Preston to the ground with just three kicks.
  • Basherbot Summoning: Typeface can summon an army of Basherbots to aid him in combat.
  • Space Key Teleportation: When giant, he can press the space key on his face to teleport around an area (not to be confused with the teleporters Cosmo Royale and most of the contestants use). It is unknown if he could have done this at normal size.
  • Eye Lasers: Typeface can fire red colored energy lasers from the two eyes on the space key which cause small explosions. After the Element Stars failed, this was powerful enough to take down all six Rangers and then again after the Rangers' Ninja Blasters failed. He could even perform this attack while spinning around on the spot.
  • Hand Blasts: After Calvin knocked him down, Typeface tried to wipe out the Rangers by shooting red energy from his hands. This was similar to the energy that he extracted from his eyes and was his last ditch attempt to destroy the Rangers.

Arsenal

  • Space Key Gauntlets: Typeface possesses a set of gauntlets shaped like Space Keys from a computer or laptop, which can be used in combat to block his enemies' attacks.
  • Fists: Typeface can also fight with his fists. 
  • Virus Gun: Given to him by Madame Odius, Typeface can use this gun to infect the Rangers' weapons and arsenal, rendering the Element Stars useless and making the Ninja Blaster Whiplash revert back into the weapons.

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

  • Typeface is portrayed by Andy Faulkner although Typeface was originally planned to be voiced by Jeff Szusterman before Faulkner was given the role.

Notes

  • Typeface's counterparts' entire video game plot was removed because it involved mainly Japanese kids and unmorphed Ninningers (especially Nagi, Calvin's counterpart). Additionally, the way he was knocked out of the game was the unmorphed Nagi using the Nexus Super Star and Superstar Blade together to energy slash them all out of it.
    • Typeface was not originally killed by the combined Rockstorm Guitar and Ninja Blaster combo but instead by the Superstar Blade and Ninja Nexus Star. This was removed because the said Power Star had yet to be introduced in Power Rangers whereas it was a massive plot element in the original Japanese series.
    • His video game plot however was used in the episode Game Plan with Game Goblin as the main villain.
  • Typeface is quite similar to Hacktrack from the previous season:
    • Both are technology-themed contestants. 
    • Both monsters are themed after an electronic device (Hacktrack: Satalite, Typeface: Computer/Laptop).
    • Both use the Rangers' technology to their own advantage (Hacktrack: The Pink Ranger's cloning device, Typeface: The Blue Ranger's Ninja Star Blade).
    • Both have the ability to teleport.
    • Both monsters have two different energy projectile-type abilities (Hacktrack: Lightning Beams and Energy Rings, Typeface: Eye Laser and Hand Blasts).
    • And finally, the Rangers destroyed both monsters with help from the Astro Zord.
      • Despite their similarities, Hacktrack and Typeface are both opposite in many ways.
        • Hacktrack is a monster based off of a device seen in space and is colored primary blue. He even fights the Rangers in space and their Megazord combination. He can also fly and most of his projectile abilities come from his club.
        • Typeface on the other hand is a monster based off an electronic device seen in Earth. He fights the Rangers in Earth and a single Megazord. Though he lacks the ability to fly, he has projectiles of his own and needs no weapon.
