719-LGb1

  • As shown in the Galaxy Book, the original form of the Centaurus Megazord was a red humanoid shape with the body of a rhino: the Rhino Galactabeast.
  • After his remote had absorbed energy from the Orion-armored Rangers and Magna Defender to bring life to his Zords, Deviot summoned the Stratoforce and Centaurus Megazords with the remote; they would regularly be launched as individual Zords from the Zenith Carrierzord before combining into their Megazord forms, but such launching was not shown during Deviot's control of the Zords.
  • Evil Centaurus raced in using the wheels on its feet for propulsion.
  • Centaurus, a red Megazord, had the V design (see "Recurring letters") from the Galaxy Megazord's chest on its knees; its face was evil-looking with red eyes.
  • Evil Centaurus shot a series of red energy spheres/bolts from its eyes.
  • Evil Centaurus could also shoot red energy bolts from the wheels just below its chest.
  • Centaurus could wield a large black and silver cannon formed of individual accessories from its component C-Zords.

    720-LGb2

  • Summoned by Hardtochoke, Centaurus launched from the lower portion of the Zenith Carrierzord in the form of five independent land vehicles known as C-Zords.
  • The five evil, silhouetted C-Zords formed the Centaurus Megazord instantaneously with white energy.
  • After the two Megazords had remembered who they were and morphed their faces into benign, non-evil forms, Centaurus had green robot eyes and blue Rhino eyes.
  • Shown on a rocky land with asteroids flying by in space, Centaurus aimed its cannon, with the Rhino Galactabeast briefly shown behind it, and then fired rapid blue energy bursts from the cannon at giant Hardtochoke.

    727-LxLB

  • When Maya called for Centaurus, Zenith Carrierzord was standing elsewhere when a red triangle in its Centaurus symbol lit up, and the five C-Zords simultaneously launched into the air from their holding bays, then landed and raced across the terrain.
  • C1 Zord, a red vehicle with a silver dome/cannon on top, launched from the rightmost slot in Zenith's triple-wide left hip launch bay.
  • C2 Zord, a short black vehicle with two robot arms, launched from the the middle slot in the aforementioned triple bay.
  • C3 Zord, a long red transport vehicle with perhaps solar panels on its top, launched from a solitary ramp on Zenith's right hip.
  • C4 Zord, a red racer buggy with perhaps a solar panel on its rear apparatus, launched from the a bay in the center of Zenith's lower section.
  • C5 Zord, a red vehicle with dual top cannons, launched from the leftmost slot in the triple bay.
  • To combine, the C-Zords assembled into a line in the order C4, C5, C1, C2, and C3, with the image of the Rhino Galactabeast seen briefly over their formation.
  • As the vehicles transformed for assembly, their accessories flew up to assemble Centaurus's blaster weapon off-screen.
  • The full assembly (some of which wasn't shown until 728-RRom) was as follows: C2 docked with C1 as C1 was turned sideways, and C5's halves docked on either side as arms; the vehicles rose, and C4 docked on as the head, and the helmet formed with the Rhino image in the background; finally, the completed upper body then flew and landed on C3, which then folded up to form the legs.
  • C1 formed the upper torso of Centaurus, C2 formed the lower torso, C3 formed the legs, C4 formed the head and back, and C5 formed the arms.
  • Completed, Centaurus rolled forward in a black background, its image fading between Centaurus and the Rhino.

    728-RRom

  • As it would often do when arriving at a battle, Centaurus rolled up with a shoulder-ram to its opponent.

    729-Cham

  • Summoned to help against the power-duplicating giant Chameliac, Stratoforce startled the boomerang-wielding Chameliac by wielding Centaurus's cannon and blasting him with a red energy beam.

    732-PQsS

  • After rolling in, grabbing giant Ironite, and throwing him, Centaurus posed with its cannon and then fired bluish-white energy blasts.

    735-EnLG

  • As Stratoforce and Centaurus fought giant monster-Deviot, they stood back to back, then swirled around together in a red/blue energy cyclone which then shot through Deviot as a gold energy streak, reminiscent of the Orion powers.

    737-GOTL

  • The launches and formations of Stratoforce and Centaurus were shown in splitscreen, even though the two launches showed conflicting views of Zenith.
  • Giant Grunchor clamped its massive jaws onto Centaurus's head, causing Stratoforce to struggle to free its companion until Defender Torozord freed it.
  • After blasting and slashing the Galaxy Megazord and Torozord, Grunchor shot blue energy streaks from its hand at the downed Torozord, but Centaurus and Stratoforce took the blasts and collapsed.
  • Shortly, Centaurus and Stratoforce held their hands against the Orion Galaxy Megazord's shoulders as the Rangers prepared to fight as a team.
  • Leo told them to give it everything they had, and flaming blue and red energy from Stratoforce and Centaurus, respectively, charged the Megazord with gold energy, which it channeled toward the monster as a large stream of fire, roasting and dissolving the monster.

    739-DrBa

  • In a dream world, after Hexuba's crystal ball had been shattered in the real world, the Rangers fought giant Nightmare with the Orion Galaxy Megazord before Zenith flew out from its waterfall and launched Stratoforce and Centaurus.

    741-RTit

  • To stop giant Titanisaur from getting to the city dome from the Ocean Dome, Leo summoned the Galactabeasts, and the Orion Galaxy Megazord, joined by Centaurus and Stratoforce on their own initiative, confronted the monster in the mountains.
  • During the battle, Centaurus punched Titanisaur with its left arm, but Titanisaur caught the arm in its mouth and ripped the arm right off the Megazord; it collapsed with sparks streaming from its gaping hole.
  • During Titanisaur's second attack in the city a short while later, the Rangers formed the Orion Galaxy Megazord, at which point Zenith flew in on its own and launched Centaurus and Stratoforce, which were now repaired somehow.
  • Between Torozord's axe strike and the Galaxy Megazord's finishing supercharged saber strike, Centaurus and Stratoforce did their energy cyclone, shooting through Titanisaur as gold energy streaks.

    744-End2

  • After the city dome had been wrenched from Terra Venture and the rest had apparently been destroyed, Stratoforce and Centaurus had survived, although Zenith did not appear.
  • On a moon hill near the city dome, Stratoforce and Centaurus stood with their weapons as the Stingwinger swarm approached.
  • Centaurus fired red energy beams from its double-barreled cannon, scattering clouds of Stingwingers but mostly going through them and making explosions in the distance.
  • Stingwingers swarmed all over the two Megazords, covering portions of them.
  • Soon, the two Megazords were nearly covered with Stingwingers, and Centaurus dropped its covered cannon.
  • A Stingwinger pulled its bomb handle, and the Megazords began to explode, enveloped in an enormous, tall explosion.
  • There were some minor explosions in the scattered remains of the Megazords.
