Full list of appearances
- "This Planet's insects will never evolve enough to rise up against the humans, but we Insectoids from space will do it for them."
- ―Vrak while examining an insect from Earth[src]
Vrak is the main enemy of the Mega Rangers and antagonist of Power Rangers Megaforce and Power Rangers Super Megaforce. He is the brother of Prince Vekar and the second son of Emperor Mavro, thus being one of the three members of the alien royal family. He serves Admiral Malkor and Prince Vekar and shares his rank as their second-in-command with Creepox and Damaras, respectively. His main role is as an intermediary and tactician to the many villainous militaries he is a member of Warstar and The Armada.
- "As royalty, I have access to much more advanced technology. They are robotic. Far too complex for you to understand. Zombats, go!"
- ―Vrak talking about his Zombats.[src]
Unlike his Insectoid cohorts, Vrak is alien royalty and has access to advanced technology like the Zombats. His royal family owns the Aurora Box, a powerful box which can supercharge any monster. Smarter than the average alien, Vrak would rather rule worlds than destroy them.
Vrak eventually joined the Insectoid ranks as Warstar selected Earth as its next target.
- "I've analyzed Earth, Admiral. This is a good planet to invade, but the humans, I hope they won't pose a problem."
- ―Vrak's report of Earth to Malkor.[src]
Vrak first encountered the Mega Rangers in his Earth Armor. He tested the Rangers with Loogies to test their fighting skills. Seeing how the Rangers defeated the Loogies with ease, Vrak left the scene. During his next encounter with the Power Rangers, Vrak deals with them personally while Dizchord plays his music to annoy the world and to supercharge the Loogies. When Dizchord was defeated, Vrak retreated.
Vrak incites Creepox to confront face-to-face with the Red Ranger. Vrak appears in his Earth Armor and bears witness to the destruction of Creepox. Vrak calls Creepox a fool, but ponders that he can still be used one final time and calls his Zombats to make Creepox huge. But Creepox is destroyed by the Rangers.
- "Form an alliance with me. We will make all Earthlings bend to our will!"
- ―Vrak proposing a treaty to the Toxic Mutants[src]
However, Vrak secretly intended to secure the planet under his own rule. To do so, he leads the lesser Toxic Mutants in order to use them to his own ends and hires many of them to sic against the Mega Rangers without reporting to Malkor and, on occasion, without doing so to Bigs and Bluefur as well.
When Vrak heard about Robo Knight, he came up with a plan to capture Robo Knight and bend him to his will. Finding a perfect monster to capture Robo Knight, Vrak summoned Psychotick to capture him. When Robo Knight was captured, Robo Knight was placed in a cage to drain him of his energies. During Robo Knight's final moments, the Rangers arrived to free him. Eventually Robo Knight escaped by transmitting his energies drained to the tick back to his power cell and defeated Vrak and Psychotick. Outmatched, Vrak retreated.
Overhearing about the Power Rangers talking about the Wild Sword while examining an insect, Vrak embarked on a quest to claim the Wild Sword from the Black Mountains. He sent Distractor to distract the Power Rangers. Finding out the Wild Sword is protected by a force field, Vrak tricked the Rangers into retrieving it. Vrak proceeded to test it's power on a city, and the Rangers clashed for control. After discovering that the Wild Sword would only obey the Rangers, Troy risked his life to claim it. Failing to hold on to it's power, the power of the Wild Sword was transferred to Troy. After a last ditch effort to defeat the Rangers, Vrak teleported away after proving no match against his enhanced foes and left Distractor and his minions to finish them, but to no avail.
Sometime later, Vrak resorted to lend Bigs and Bluefur the Aurora Box. He had it tested on the Dream Snatcher. Although Dream Snatcher was defeated, Bigs and Bluefur would once again use the Aurora Box in their next plot.
- "At last my underwater lab is complete. From here, I can finally launch my new plan to destroy the Power Rangers and conquer this planet. All the efforts of the Insectoid monsters have proven ineffective. They weren't powerful enough to achieve real results. It's time for a new force to rise. The era of the robot has arrived."
- ―Vrak creating Metal Alice[src]
Some time after the deaths of Bigs and Bluefur, Vrak established his personal base. He placed his first creation, Metal Alice, in command. During Malkor's absence, Vrak saw an opportunity to usurp his power and prove his worth to his Royal Family. Alice orchestrated three onslaughts: the first involving Rotox and his upgraded state Rotox DX, the second with Rico the Robot to study human emotions in order to cripple the Rangers, and the third by having Metal Alice personally derailing train stations to throw humanity into chaos. , but failed as the Power Rangers thwarted all of their plans.
When Malkor awakened from his cocoon, Vrak participated in the invasion of Earth. His role was to land the Warstar Ship, annihilating Harwood County while truly intending to crash onto Malkor and the Rangers. Before the Warstar Spaceship crashed to Earth, the Rangers managed to blast Malkor using the Ultra Gosei Great Megazord to the ship, causing an explosion whose ensuing flames consumed both. The two were presumed dead by both the Armada and the Mega Rangers.
- "I am not a robot. I am Vrak!"
Sometime after the Power Rangers defeated the Insectoids, Metal Alice visited the wreckage site of Admiral Malkor's Warstar Spaceship and found Vrak's body. Realizing that Vrak's mind could be salvaged, she took his body to their underwater lair to be revived as a cyborg. As a side effect, Vrak had little to no memory of who he was as his mind was still adjusting to being a cyborg.
Metal Alice then reintroduced Vrak to the Rangers, much to their shock. Vrak took on the Rangers, easily beating them. Then Vrak threatened to destroy a skyscraper full of people if they continued fighting. Suddenly Vrak malfunctioned causing Metal Alice to take him back to their lair, but not before firing the missile. The Rangers managed to stop the missile in the nick of time.
During his repairs, a mysterious figure appeared introducing himself as a Messenger of the approaching Armada. After Vrak's repairs, Vrak, Metal Alice, and the Messenger led an assault on the rangers. The Messenger fought Troy while Metal Alice battled Robo Knight and Vrak took on the rest. However the Rangers managed to push them back, forcing the trio to retreat.
Back in the underwater lair, the Messenger had Metal Alice show past clips to Vrak to speed up his mind adjusting to his new body. Now with his memory fully restored, Vrak assaults the Rangers stating that it will be their final duel and the end of Earth's resistance. Although Vrak was clearly capable of destroying the Rangers, Vrak wanted them to suffer while watching Earth get taken over by the Armada so he teleported back to his lair. At the same time, the Armada entered the Solar System.
- "Today's a special day. It's your last!"
The next day, Vrak led another assault against the Power Rangers. Before entering the battle personally, Vrak had Loogies and three Rotox models attack the Rangers which were easily defeated. Then Vrak makes his appearance and fights the Rangers, managing to disable their Morphers when they used the Ultra Dynamic Strike. Then the Messenger appeared to finish the Rangers off with a powerful energy beam. Robo Knight then used his internal power to restore his Morpher and fired an attack to counter the Messenger's attack and used the last of his power to restore the Rangers' morphers. With their powers restored, the Rangers used the Ultra Dynamic Strikes and Robo Knight's Vulcan Cannon to defeat the Messenger. After that Metal Alice arrived to the scene. Drained of his energies, Metal Alice pushed him out of the way to defeat the Rangers but she malfunctioned when Troy slashed her at her weak spot and exploded. At the same time the Armada arrived at Earth.
- "Even though I couldn't do it myself, I take comfort knowing that you will be destroyed soon. Goodbye!"
- ―Vrak after failing to destroy the Power Rangers[src]
Now as a head, the Messenger told Vrak to retreat as none of the Armada's soldiers would recognize him in his cyborg form. Vrak thanked Metal Alice for her loyalty and leaves shortly after she self-destructs. He then tells the Rangers that they are about to be destroyed, only regretting that he couldn't do it himself, before going into hiding.
Instead of putting effort in finding his brother Vrak since the Armada could not create a tracking device, Prince Vekar marked Vrak as dead and went straight to the invasion of Earth. It is possible that Vrak is hiding in his underwater lair, trying to contact the Armada about his survival and/or simply waiting things out for a perfect opportunity to seize the throne as Prince of the Armada by usurping Vekar, much like how he attempted to take over Warstar by overthrowing Admiral Malkor in the previous season.
At some point after going into hiding, Vrak found Robo Knight's lifeless body. Vrak happened to not have the proper resources to recharge Robo Knight to bend him to his will. He waited for a perfect opportunity until his brother's demise to make the next move. Vrak decided to capture Orion and use his powers to recharge Robo Knight. He used it to turn Robo Knight evil.
Final Battle with the Rangers
Vrak is portrayed as intelligent and scheming as he usually comes up with complex plans when conquering worlds. Unlike his brother, Prince Vekar, who is impulsive and quick-tempered, Vrak tends to keep his cool even after defeats. Vrak has also shown a desire for greatness as he secretly wants to usurp Admiral Malkor's power and take control of the Insectoids as the new leader to Warstar. Vrak also has some cold traits to his personality and has no qualms about backstabbing or getting rid of his allies to achieve success and is willing to abandon his allies if they fail, such as Metal Alice and The Messenger. Vrak has also demonstrated some traits as a thief like when he attempted to steal the Wild Sword and may also be a scientist as he has been shown to be able to design and create complex robots. As a cyborg, Vrak became significantly darker, more focused and serious as well as completely devoid of any emotions or feelings he may have had in his fully organic state.
Skills and Abilities
- Durability: As a Warstar, he has a high defense thanks to his armor, characteristical of an elite Insectoid. His defense is higher in his Earth Armor and greater still when he is converted into a cyborg by Metal Alice.
- Energy Wield: In all of his forms, Vrak has the ability to fire energy blasts from his hands.
- Comet Shots: Vrak can fire comets from his hands and launch them directly at his opponents. Though the attack is weak compared to his other moves, it can temporarily paralyze people on impact.
- Double Shotburst: Vrak can fire two devastating energy beams from his hands. This attack is more powerful than Comet Shots. Like Comet Shots, it can also give off temporary paralysis.
- Cyber Blast: This is a more powerful variation of Vrak's energy wielding abilities which he gained after becoming a cyborg. He can now fire energy blasts from his hands and chest.
- Aura Burst: This is another more powerful version of his energy wielding abilities which he after becoming a cyborg. This version is more powerful than Cyber Blast. Vrak could now fire energy blasts from his entire body. The attack looks as if Vrak explodes. This attack is either used offensively or defensively. He first used the attack against Troy which resulted in Troy being sent flying. It is unknown how powerful this attack is given the fact that Vrak claimed that he didn't use this attack at his full power.
- Wing Blast: This is Vrak's most powerful variation of his energy wielding capabilities which he could only perform in his true form. It appears to be the most powerful out of all Vrak's attacks. To perform the attack, Vrak grows his full body wings in his back and fires a devastating full body energy blast. It has proven most efficient against the Megaforce Rangers.
- Telepathy: He sometimes contacts his minions if he is not with them in person.
- Shapeshifting: Vrak has the ability to alter his forms. He normally does this to blend in with other villains or to do battle. Additionally, Vrak's strength varies depending on form. It is heavily implied that Vrak can only access his full power in his true form.
- Teleportation: Vrak uses this ability to move from place to place, although he usually uses a small, personal spaceship of his own to move great distances as a means to conserve energy.
- Energy Deflection: After being turned into a cyborg, Vrak gained the ability to absorb attacks and fire it right back at his opponents from his chest. Should Vrak fire the attack at a machine, it would be capable of disabling it. Eg. Vrak firing the Ultra Dynamic Strike back at the Rangers' morphers. This, however, takes a lot of energy and leaves him in a weakened state.
- Energy Absorption: Vrak could catch an attack and absorb it within him. He first displayed this ability against the Trifusion attack. Unlike the Energy Deflection technique, this ability wouldn't take a lot of energy from him meaning that it would simply increase his energy level.
- Chest Grenades: As a cyborg, Vrak can fire missiles from his chest.
- Cyber Rangs: After becoming a cyborg, Vrak gained the ability to throw these boomerang-like projectiles from his hands. Vrak would also use these to slash his opponents when he is near them or to counter attacks by blocking them.
- Elemental Control: It was hinted that Vrak had similar abilities to the Megaforce Rangers, although this may be an upgrade resulting from his reconstruction by Metal Alice.
- Flight: As a cyborg, Vrak has the ability to fly thanks to being equipped with thrusters in his feet. It is hinted that Vrak can fly using his wings in his true form.
Vrak's power varies depending on whatever form he is in (in his true form, Vrak is at his full power). He is the least strongest of the main villains in the series on either his Insectoid or Mutant guises, being no stronger and sometimes not even as strong as the regular monster-of-the-day, preferring to use his intellect to gather information about the Megaforce. Nevertheless, Vrak possesses several abilities that tend to come in handy during battle and other situations. After Malkor's defeat, Vrak's body was salvaged from the Warstar Spaceship wreckage by Metal Alice. With 60% of his being mechanized, he becomes second to Admiral Malkor, rivaling Metal Alice and the Messenger. It is unknown how strong Vrak was in his true form prior to becoming a cyborg. It can be presumed that it was stronger than even his cyborg form. In other words, the cyborg form given to him by Alice just made him stronger than his Insectoid and Mutant form. Additionally, Vrak later showed the ability to change from his true form, Cyborg form, Mutant form and Warstar form at will.
In his Warstar form, Vrak wields a spear which is used during battle and possibly to symbolize authority towards his servants. In his Mutant form, Vrak wields claws which are strapped into his hands. Vrak sports three large pointed claws per hand. He would normally use them to attack his opponents. In his Cyborg form, Vrak uses cyberrangs which are boomerang-like objects he uses to launch at his opponents, slash them or to counter attacks. In his true form, Vrak wields a sword.
Throughout his time battling the Mega Rangers, Vrak changes his form several times.
Vrak first appears to the Rangers as an agent of the Warstar aliens and gives him somewhat of an Insectoid appearance. This is the form he uses the most, especially when he is with the Armada and/or Warstar alike. This form also serves as Vrak's main clothing. In other words, his formal/royal clothing. It is both treehopper-themed and comet-themed. He is armed with a lance, and he can fire an energy blast with his hand.
Vrak's Earth Armor form is an evolved fighting form. It is used to battles with the Mega Rangers on Earth, and also around the Toxic Mutants, because he is the intermediary between Admiral Malkor and Bigs/Bluefur. It's Chupacabra-themed and reminiscent of the Toxic Mutants.
Cyborg Vrak is the result of Metal Alice's diabolical machinations. She rebuilds him in this form. However in this form, Vrak has lost his memories. Over time, with fights with the rangers and with Alice's help, Vrak regains those memories. In this form, Vrak can blast "Chest Grenades", and launch his arms as "Cyberangs", at opponents.
Vrak has another form yet unknown to the Rangers although it can be presumed to be his true state. This form is also known as "Prince Vrak". This form will make its appearance in Super Megaforce.
- In Power Rangers Megaforce Mega Bloks, Vrak's Earth Armor is named Vrax .
- It is also shown in The Messenger that there is a possibility that Vrak possesses powers similar to the Megaforce cards even though that might not be the case for the fact that Metal Alice had given him upgrades.
- Vrak is the only villain in Power Rangers Megaforce to appear in Power Rangers Super Megaforce whose counterpart Brajira of the Messiah did not appear in the main series of Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger.
