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 tactician, strategist, war adviser and intermediary of the Insectoids and the Armada, enemies of the Mega Rangers and a main antagonist of Megaforce and Super Megaforce. He is the younger brother of Prince Vekar and youngest son of Emperor Mavro. He is the only member of Warstar to not be a true Insectoid. Alongside Creepox, he ranks as second-in-command to Admiral Malkor.
- "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 buggy 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 the Earth than destroy it.
Some time before the invasion of Earth, Vrak went to work for the Insectoids as Malkor's tactician and Creepox's partner, co-ranking with him as second-in-command while also becoming the Intermediary of the Armada and the Warstar. Disliking this arrangement, Vrak grew an interest to prove to his royal family that he alone deserves to lead Warstar instead of true Insectoids such as Malkor and Creepox. However, since every invasion had been so far successful to the Insectoids, he bided his time and awaited for the right moment to strike.
- "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 conversing with Malkor about Earth.[src]
At some point, Malkor, Creepox and Vrak were assigned to take over Earth before the Armada arrived.
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 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 joining forces with the Toxic Mutants[src]
However, Vrak secretly intended to secure Earth under his rule. To do so, he informally leads the lesser Toxic Mutants in order to use them to his own ends and hires several of them to sic against the Mega Rangers without the knowledge and/or permission of Bigs, Bluefur and Malkor.
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 Psychotic. Having survived the attack, 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. As a last ditch effort to defeat the Rangers, Vrak left the scene after realizing he was no match against the Rangers in Ultra Mode and had Distractor and his Phantom warriors to try and finish the Rangers, but to no avail.
Sometime later, Vrak presented to Bigs and Bluefur the Aurora Box. He had it tested on the Dream Snatcher. Although Dream Snatcher was defeated, Vrak still had Bigs and Bluefur use the Aurora Box in their next mission.
- "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]
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 to 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. He was presumed dead by both the Armada and the Power 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 couldn't 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.
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.
Powers and Abilities
Vrak is the least strong of the main villains at first 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, prefering 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.
- 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 Projection: In all of his forms, Vrak has the ability to fire energy blasts from his hands.
- 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.
- 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.
Powers Upon Conversion to Cyborg
With 60% of his being mechanized upon his conversion into a cyborg by Metal Alice, Vrak gained some new abilities and his might went on to be second only to Malkor, rivaling Metal Alice and The Messenger.
- Cyber Blast: A variation of his energy projection abilities which he gained after becoming a cyborg. Vrak can fire energy blasts from his hands and chest.
- Aura Burst: Another variation of his energy projection abilities which he gained after becoming a cyborg. 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.
- Attack Deflection/Absorption: After being turned into a cyborg, Vrak gained the ability to absorb attacks and fire it right back at his opponents. This, however, takes a lot of energy and leaves him in a weakened state.
- 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.
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.
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 at first, especially when around Malkor and/or Creepox in the Warstar Spaceship. 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 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 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.
