|This article is about a/an series of Zords and Megazords in the Power Rangers franchise.|
The first instance of this occurring was during the first season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers in the Green With Evil arc, in which the Rangers first fought against Tommy Oliver, the evil Green Ranger and his Dragonzord. In this first instance, the Zord and the Ranger were soon turned to the side of good - although the Dragonzord would later be used for evil again by Goldar, Pirantishead who also controlled the Tyrannosaurus Dinozord and by the clone of the Green Ranger. The same idea was reused at the 'culmination' of the first season of Mighty Morphin when Goldar piloted the Warzord Cyclopsis against the Rangers. Lord Zedd also piloted another Warzord called Serpentera, which was hugely powerful but never truly able to defeat the Rangers due to the fact that it was continually running out of fuel. Serpentera reappeared in the Power Rangers Wild Force team-up episode "Forever Red" but was destroyed.
The idea of evil Zords was reused several times in later seasons; in Power Rangers Turbo, Divatox and her minions piloted machines called Divazords and an episode of Power Rangers In Space had the Yellow Psycho Ranger take control of the Mega Voyager while the Rangers were in it. Power Rangers Lost Galaxy also introduced the Stratoforce and Centaurus Megazords and Zenith Carrierzord under the control of Deviot but whose inner natures as Galactabeasts allowed them to break free and join the Rangers. Magna Defender's Torozord was used to fight against the Galaxy Rangers on at least one occasion.
In Power Rangers: Time Force there were several giant robots that are used by Frax and not addressed as Zords, although in Mirai Sentai Timeranger (the Super Sentai show that Time Force came from) one of the giant robots was named the G-Zord. This was the first time that the term "Zord" was ever used on a Sentai program (prior to the release of Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters which premiered nearly 12 years later). The G-Zord was adapted into the Dragontron robot when the footage was used on Time Force. In Power Rangers SPD and Power Rangers Operation Overdrive a large assortment of giant robots are similarly used by the villains of the series. While mostly not referred to as Zords, these robots are all Zord-like in operation.
There is one villainous Zord in the US version which wasn't really a giant robot in the original Sentai version. That Zord was the Lothorzord, the Zord Lothor piloted at the end of Power Rangers Ninja Storm. This was done in order to use the final battle footage from Ninpu Sentai Hurricaneger (the Sentai series that Ninja Storm was based on and adapted from) especially since Lothor was a Power Rangers-exclusive villain. This was repeated again in the case of the Zelzord, the Zord Zeltrax piloted from the end of Power Rangers Dino Thunder.
