- alter ego of Masked Rider
Being forced to mine along with the other gas
mask-wearing Edenoites, Prince Dex spotted a
Plague Sentry and remarked
that he wanted to pull its horns off; his grandfather King Lexian told him that he'd get his
While Lexian and three other diggers were
shown, Dex's voice could be heard saying he saw movement; soon
afterward, Lexian looked up,
wondering where Dex had gone, but the same number of people were still
in his digging group.
Dex and three friends were all dressed in gas
masks and brown cloaks with white sashes to confront the Rangers, whom they thought were intruders.
After transforming into Masked Rider to fight, Dex told the Rangers, "Words have no meaning on a planet under the cape of war!"
Dex had the following conversation with the White and Red Rangers while
fighting them in the form of Masked
Dex: "Prepare to be crushed, interlopers, like all those who dare to
cross the Masked Rider."
When the Spiderbase began blasting
at both Rangers and Edenoites alike, Dex knew that the Rangers had been sincere, as even Dregon, he said, wasn't low enough to fire on
his own soldiers.
Tommy explained to Dex
that they'd come because their friend "Alpha
Five" had believed the Edenoites were in
danger, and Dex replied that friends of "Alpha"
were friends of theirs.
Tommy: "You've gotta listen to us."
Dex: "Nothing you can say will save you. You sealed your own fate by
coming here. Now you shall pay the ultimate price for your
Rocky: "You've gotta believe us! We're here to
Dex: "I believe no one!"
Dex's friends called him "Sire."
After fleeing from the Spiderbase's air attack
with the Rangers and his three friends into a cave, Dex said he
needed to rest but a moment, at which point he reverted from Masked Rider back to Edenoite form.
Dex was prince of Edenoi.
The Masked Rider
power had been bestowed upon Dex to battle evil
Dex knew that the air of Edenoi was similar to that of Earth.
Dex's identity as Masked Rider was apparently a secret.
Dex touched his first two fingers on his right
hand to his forehead, and his mind crystal projected images on the wall.
The Masked Rider
powers had existed on Edenoi for many
centuries, handed down from king to king, kept always ready but never
needed, until recently; the powers had been bestowed upon Dex by King Lexian, his grandfather, when it
became clear that the Edenoites were losing
the fight against Dregon.
Dex explained, "Until Lexian can be returned to his rightful
throne, the people on Edenoi buy their time
slaving in the gas mines, depending on Masked
Rider to stave off Dregon's attempts
to destroy the planet. Until that day, our
rebel forces continue to fight bravely on, and I remain an outlaw under
the guise of the Masked Rider, trying to
bring some sense of hope to our people."
The Plague Patrol knew Dex was
among the rebels in the cave, perhaps from seeing him standing near the
Before entering into combat with Dregon's forces alongside the Rangers, Dex announced, "To the Power!", and the Rangers and Dex's friends replied, "To the Power!"
Once the helmeted Rangers
and gas mask-wearing Edenoites had emerged
from the cave, a Plague
Patrol soldier said, "We shall now put an end to you and the
rebellion, Prince Dex!"
Dex told the Plague Patrol that as new
friends like these rallied to their cause, the day grew near when they
and Count Dregon would be banished from Edenoi for all time.
The gas mask-wearing Dex transformed into Masked Rider in front of the Plague Patrol; Dregon may have been watching from the Spiderbase at the time as
The final Plague Patrol soldier,
retreating on foot, told Masked Rider,
calling him "Dex", that they would meet another day when Dex wasn't with
the help of his friends.
When Masked Rider transformed back into Dex, he
was no longer wearing his gas mask, even though he had been prior to
transforming into Masked Rider.
After the Plague Patrol and Cogworts had been defeated, Dregon called in his henchmen, and they told
him that Dex had escaped.
Billy told Dex to keep
them informed of his welfare.
On Edenoi after Dregon had been shown approaching Earth, Dex and Lexian were in a misty black chamber
with images of planets around them, light
streaming down from above, and they were wearing ancient white and gold
Lexian and a
saddened Dex had the following discussion in the misty black
Lexian: "The time has come, Dex."
Dex: "But, Grandfather, I can't just leave you."
Lexian: "You must. It is too late
for our planet now. Our spirit will live on to guide you to your
Dex: "My destiny?"
Lexian: "Planet Earth is Dregon's
next target. It will be up to you to protect it from destruction. Now,
go, before it is too late."
Dex: "Grandfather, I will always love you."
Lexian: "And I, you,
With the Zeo
Megazord in repair, Zordon said that their
only defense was the Red Battlezord and
that this made the Earth even more vulnerable
than before; the implication is that there were no other superheroes (such as Masked Rider) defending the planet at the time.
