- "Don't you know? Might beats right!"
- ―Malkor in a battle against the Rangers[src]
Malkor balances power and intelligence quite equally and retains his composure in the face of adversity, at times going as far as praise his enemies when they prove worthy opponents to him or to his forces, a trait belonging uniquely to him among Power Rangers villains.
Unlike his servants, specially his elites, he is mostly humble and modest and optimizes himself as leader of the Insectoids by combining intelligence greater than that of Vrak with strength higher than that of Creepox.
As a wise leader, he does not make the common mistake of overlooking flaws in the plots of his cohorts, always expecting the progress of an insect invasion and the formulation of a full-proof strategy as the conquest of a world advances, recognizing a changing of tactics as the proper way to proceed if usual onslaughts are ineffective in the long run or if his enemies strengthen themselves at the ensuing war.
Not long afterwards, the royal amazon queen, Beezara, then tries to deal with the humans by enslaving males and turning females against each other, only to be defeated by the combined strength of the female Mega Rangers.
Before he does so, Creepox descends to Earth to deal with the Rangers. Despite his immense might, Creepox ultimately proves no match to the newfound powers of the heroes and perishes, leaving Malkor as the last surviving Insectoid.
Later on, Malkor worried that Robo Knight would interfered with his goals and initially wanted him to be destroyed. After some thinking, however, he agreed with Vrak's solution of capturing and reprogramming Robo Knight to the Warstar side.
After Shadow Serpent, Distractor, Kesaran, Gremlin, Mummy, Skyfish and the reinvigorated Hisser and Psychotick fail and are destroyed, Malkor commends Vrak on having Nojoke to explore laughter, which was supposedly an involuntary human weakness.
- "Once I come out of this cocoon, I will possess strength beyond description. Incredible power that will make me unbeatable! Soon, I will destroy this world myself!"
In order to avenge his fallen friends and make up for all the previous failures stemming from the plans of his subordinates, Malkor resorted to cocooning himself to become even more powerful, allowing Vrak to temporarily take full command of Warstar, being either unaware of the latter's desire to usurp his power and overthrow him as leader of the Insectoids as to best impress his royal family and/or intent on taking such risk in order to ensure his conquest of Earth by Warstar before the arrival of the Armada could challenge his absolute authority at the alien invasion.
- "I feel it! Such power! I am reborn!"
Sooner than expected, Malkor awakened from his cocoon, resuming his complete control over Warstar, and confronted the Mega Rangers. He planned to use the Warstar Spaceship to crash into the city, destroying the hometown of the Rangers.
In Vrak's memories during his repair as Alice and the Messenger discussed his capacity to survive from his wounds and recover the thoughts of his former self, both of which vastly exceeded the Armada's expectations., he was recalled in one of the clips of
He is a powerful and intelligent warrior who has an atypically friendly, honorable, charismatic and respectful nature to his allies and comrades, unique among Power Rangers villains. Although there are times when he does get steamed up when things do not go according to plan or when a monster fails, he does not resort to violence against his cohorts and limits himself to growl and reflect about setbacks and, on occasion, to take his anger out by slashing at something with his axe, though he often manages to suppress his wrath.
Nonetheless, Malkor still commends the merits of such plans and genuinely highlights the worth and credit of the ones that thought them out. Malkor is known for showing dignity and equality towards those allied to him and legitimately acknowledge their value, a quality which draws the devotion and worship of other villains towards him. Such virtues make him the stark contrast and polar opposite of his fellow villains, specially his second-in-command, Vrak, who is pure evil and totally uncaring to all those around him.
He also bears an easygoing mood and joke-cracking disposition, counterbalancing his mostly serious nature and tough attitude as a warlord and moderating his temper when dealing with problems instigated by the success of the Power Rangers. He also acts with reasoning and usually cooperates with plans, even if they are complex and/or long-term ones, but will use his full power and be prone to taunt and mock his foes when overpowering them in battle due to the quite massive gap between his might and that of his enemies.
Malkor is given such esteem that Creepox, who usually argues with others, has shown absolute loyalty to him, Vrak, who wants to usurp his power, has seen him as a worthy leader, Bigs and Bluefur have been glad to join his kind, Metal Alice, who has shown several times to completely disregard organic life, has displayed a very high level of respect to him, and Messenger is also implied to respect him due to spying Warstar to such an extent of secrecy and regarding Vrak's activities, rather than his own.
Power and Intelligence
Malkor is the most powerful enemy to the Mega Rangers, exceeding Creepox, Bigs, Bluefur, Metal Alice, The Messenger, Vrak, Argus, Prince Vekar, Levira, Emperor Mavro, and Damaras. He is also very intelligent and easily understands and/or corrects complex plans devised by his comrades and is also adept to come up with his own schemes. Although Damaras is stated to be the strongest in the universe, Damaras is only stated that by reputation for being virtually undefeated in battle. Malkor's cocooning made him drastically more powerful than any of his rivals and cohorts, increasing his power many times over.
Arsenal and Weapons
Malkor wields an axe of his likeness that excels in both offense and defense to use during battle. He can project energy blades from the axe and use it as a shield to protect himself from energy attacks. The axe is also very sharp, so it can cleaver clean through most materials and inflict severe damage into his opponents if its razor-sharp edges come in contact with them. As for defense, Malkor sports a metallic armor, which is impervious to damage and can withstand any attack, no matter their nature or origin, acting as his main body shield to repel incoming techniques from strong opponents, such as the Mega Rangers.
