|This article is about a/an series of Zords and Megazords in the Power Rangers franchise.|
Several times during the Power Rangers series, certain villains have piloted Zords or similar vehicles of their own or somehow hijacked, overridden and/or taken control of the Zords belonging to the Rangers themselves. In truth, there is little to differentiate these machines from any other giant robot, however, the word "Zord" itself summons a feeling that the Rangers are now facing beings in some way like themselves. This motif has been used in many mediums to introduce increased tension and drama.
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) 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 Wild Force Red Ranger team-up episode Forever Red, but was destroyed.
The idea of evil Zords was reused several times in later seasons, for example, in Power Rangers Turbo, during which Divatox and her minions pilot machines called Divazords, and an episode of Power Rangers In Space, in which the Yellow Psycho Ranger takes control of the Mega Voyager while the Rangers are in it. Power Rangers Lost Galaxy also introduced the Stratoforce and Centaurus Megazords and the Zenith Carrierzord as Zords under the control of Deviot, but whose inner nature as the lost Galactabeasts allowed them to break free and join the Rangers. The Magna Defender's Torozord was also used to fight against the Galaxy Rangers on at least one occasion.
In Power Rangers: Time Force there are several giant robots that are used by Frax and are not addressed as Zords, although in Mirai Sentai Timeranger (the 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 and monsters of the series. While mostly not referred to as Zords, these robots are 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 is the Lothorzord, the Zord that Lothor piloted at the end of Power Rangers Ninja Storm. This was done in order to use the final battle footage from Ninpu Sentai Hurricanger, the Sentai series that Ninja Storm is based on and adapted from, especially since Lothor is an American-made Power Rangers-exclusive villain. This is repeated again in the case of the Zelzord, the Zord Zeltrax piloted from the end of Power Rangers Dino Thunder.
