Ranger Villain Profile: Megaranger Yugande

Yugande (ユガンデ, Yugande, Warping) (1-50): A prideful robot general created by Hinelar whom he admires and unconditionally obeys. Yugande was killed by the Galaxy Mega's Mega Flying Cutter early in the series in Episode 8, but then rebuilt into a stronger, slightly larger form, Yugande Strong (ユガンデストロング, Yugande Sutorongu) and reappeared in Episode 9. Later he was critically wounded in Episode 30 when Guirail used him as a shield to protect him from the Super Galaxy Mega's Super Galaxy Knuckle. Yugande had to be modified with various mechanical implants placed on him in order to survive, and was given a better sword called the Dark Crisis (ダーククライシス, Dāku Kuraishisu), which had three buttons on its handle to activate different attacks. In Episode 50, Yugande uses a special chip to take on a more powerful form and his current body turned red, Super Warrior Yugande (Chō Senshi Yugande, Super Warrior Yugande). With this new power, Yugande proved to be a difficult challenge for the Megarangers, as he destroyed the Delta Mega, badly damaged the Galaxy Mega and Mega Winger and nearly destroyed the Voyager Machines when he damaged the INET moonbase. But the Neji Reactor inside him got to a critical point and MegaRed was able to kill Yugande for good this time.

* Dark Crisis attacks: Dark Blade, Dark Fire, and Dark Lightning
