Yokubabanger of the Electric Shock (電撃のヨークババンガー Dengeki no Yōkubabangā) is a Daicaci Alien (ダイケシ星人 Daikeshi Seijin) working for the Universal Annihilation Army Warstar.
Yokubabanger is one of Great King Mons Drake's top soldiers, sent to Earth to absorb surrounding electricity and use it to commit acts of destruction, taking out the power of an entire area including a hospital where Miku, a girl Moune was supporting, was having surgery. While trying to stop his initial attack, Yokubabanger proves himself to be too powerful for the Goseigers, forcing them to retreat.
Eventually, Moune and Datas realize that the only way to save Miku and to stop the Warstar Insect was to create so much electricity that even if Yokubabanger absorbed most of it, there would still be enough to run the hospital to help finish the surgery. Using the Sparkquake card combined with some dance moves learned for a cheerleading routine to support Miku, Moune creates a massive flow of electricity that not only restores power to the hospital, but is too much for Yokubabanger to absorb all of, overloading him. The Goseigers summon the Landick Brothers to use with the Tiger and Snake Headders in the Landick Bullet attack, defeating Yokubabanger.
After being enlarged, Yokubabanger uses his absorption powers on Gosei Great, causing it to shut down. However Datas' desire to fight unlocks a new Headder: the Hyper Charge Headder, which Moune uses to change Datas into Datas Hyper who destroys Youkubabanger with Datas Dynamic Crush.
to be added
His main ability is absorbing and releasing energy, absorbing energy from surrounding areas and then throwing them at an opponent in a massive electric ball. While his main absorption is electricity, he can also absorb Gosei Power as it does during the fight with Gosei Great.
Behind the Scenes
- Movie Reference: Yokubabanger's name is from *batteries not included (ニューヨーク東８番街の奇跡 Nyū Yōku Higashi Hachibangai no Kiseki, Japanese title translated: "Miracle on New York's East 8th Avenue").
- His power of taking and then utilizing electricity for attacks is similar to the small "Fix-It" mechanical aliens of the movie, whose main power is to fix and run other mechanical objects.
- Yokubabanger is modeled after a cicada and a cyclops.
- The claws on his hands resemble X-23 from the X-Men series.
- His home planet "Daicaci" (ダイケシ) is "cicada" (シケイダ) backwards.
- He is one of the several Universal Insect Monsters that were never got adapted into Universal Insect Monsters. The others were Yuzeikusu of the Ice & Snow, Abauta of the Research, Kurasuniigo of 5000°C, Fandaho of Nonsense, Powereddark of the Mutation, Targate of the Satellite, and Dorunpasu of the Revival.
- The reason he went unused in Power Rangers Megaforce due to Nickelodeon's 22-episode limit, which also led to the omittion of Datas Hyper as well.
