|This article is about a/an monster in Tensou Sentai Goseiger.|
Powereddark of the Mutation (変わり種のパワードダーク Kawaridane no Pawādodāku) is a Hognlo Alien (ホグンロ星人 Hogunro Seijin) that is part of the Universal Annihilation Army Warstar.
Powereddark was brought forth by Buredoran in hopes of impressing Mons Drake after the apparant death of Dereputa. When sent down, the Warstar Insect easily defeated the Goseiger with its Power Seeds copying all of their moves, only to become surprised and shocked when Gosei Red reveals he has the ability of Comprethunder, which he can't match and is easily shocked by the Goseiger with forcing him to escape. After devising a Power Seed to match Comprethunder, Powereddark returns to Earth just as Eri completed her own Comprethunder training. While able to deflect Eri's new move, the determination of her and Alata empowers Comprethunder and allows for both to use the power simultaneously and strike. However with the withstanding of the Comprethunder assault and a need of power while being assaulted relentlessly by Buredoran, Alata unexpectedly awakens a new power: the Mystic Brothers. Summoning it, the ostrich-like creature throws away Buredoran and kicks its egg at Powereddark destroying it easily.
After Buredoran grows the Warstar Insect, Gosei Great merges with the Mystic Brothers to form Mystic Gosei Great and easily defeats Powereddark with the Mystic Strike.
to be added
Its main ability involves the eating of modified Power Seeds (パワーシード Pawā Shīdo) devised by Buredoran which gives Powereddark the ability to copy and utilize any Gosei Power used against it as long as it has the seed to match the power (generally by Goseiger color; though it gains a golden seed to match Comprethunder). After copying Alata's Skyick Sword at one point, he uses it as his main offensive weapon in combat.
Behind the Scenes

Movie Reference: Powereddark's name is from Howard the Duck (ハワード・ザ・ダック／暗黒魔王の陰謀 Hawādo za Dakku/Ankoku Maō no Inbō, Japanese title translated: "Howard the Duck and the Conspiracy of the Dark Overlord").
- Powereddark's "seed adaptation" is similar to the power of the "Dark Overlord", an evil interstellar being who "seeds" itself inside a human scientist and takes him over, mutating him as his mind and power emerges from within.
- Powereddark's species name, "Hognlo" (ホグンロ) is "longhorn" (ロングホーン) backwards and stripped of both the elongation and "n" kanas.
- Powereddark shares the same weapon and power copying ability with 2 monsters from Goseiger's predecessors.
- Powereddark has an appearance almost identical to one of the most popular Ultraman kaiju Zetton, both have a longhorn beetle theme.
