- noble warrior formerly under the service of evil (until 727-LxLB)
In Trakeena's lair, Villamax had apparently introduced the subject
of Loyax; Deviot called him a washed-up old
warrior, but Villamax regarded him as an
Loyax had won battles in every corner of the universe, according to Villamax; for centuries, he said, the name Loyax
had inspired fear.
Loyax was a warrior covered in brown armor, his
armored face featuring a beard and blue eyes, and he held a large mace
over his left shoulder and a sword in his right hand.
Having been brought in to meet Trakeena, Loyax bowed to his "lovely queen Trakeena."
Loyax came with one humble wish: he had lived his
whole life as a cunning and mighty warrior, but now his strength began
to fade; he wanted one last battle with a worthy opponent before he
finally laid his sword to rest.
Trakeena offered to
let Loyax battle the Power Rangers; to
defeat them, Loyax concluded, would be a glorious ending indeed.
Standing on a cliff in Terra Venture's Ocean Dome, Loyax said he felt strong
and ready to fight; he had a device of some sort on the inside of his
left forearm and the symbol of Barbarax on
Swinging his mace and smashing rocks with
explosive force, Loyax said the Rangers'
defeat would be his greatest triumph.
The Rangers soon
confronted Loyax, and when Yellow Ranger leapt down to
fight him, Loyax hit and grabbed her, saying no girl was going to defeat
Loyax hit the others with his mace, then struck
the ground with it, making explosions go to the Rangers.
Maya struck Loyax
repeatedly with her saber, finally chipping off a little bit of metal
from his chest.
Catching her sword, Loyax told her she was quite
valiant for a mere girl; as he knocked her down and prepared to strike,
Red Ranger told him to fight
him instead, and Loyax agreed with pleasure, but Maya grabbed his leg and pulled him off the cliff
with herself, and they both fell screaming over the cliff to the ocean
In a dark cavern, unmorphed Maya had a gash in her knee; Loyax told her she
would be all right, but he would never recover from this disgrace,
having failed the simple task of abolishing the Power Rangers.
Loyax was ashamed to be lost in a cave all
because of a girl, but Maya insisted being a girl
made no difference.
Loyax tossed Maya a
flexible gold-weave cuff for her injury, and she put it on, accusing him
of pushing her off the cliff.
Loyax told Maya that they
might be enemies - a Power Ranger that fought
for good and him, a mighty warrior that had been on the side of evil for centuries - but for now, they needed each
Maya angrily doubted it,
but she then tripped against a boulder; Loyax explained his eyesight was
poor in the dark, and she couldn't walk, but they could get out if they
forgot they were enemies.
Maya rode on Loyax's back,
telling him where to go, and they eventually found the cave opening
Loyax agreed they'd made it out through
togetherness, but he then tossed her to the ground, telling her to
prepare for battle; it was a grand challenge to defeat a Power Ranger, he said, even if she was just a
When Deviot and Stingwingers arrived, Loyax insisted his
last battle was to be an honorable one, and when the villains attacked,
both Maya and Loyax
fought them off, Maya wielding a large stick
until being kicked in the injured leg.
Striking the offending Stingwinger with his mace, Loyax commended
Yellow Ranger on her
bravery, saying their battle would be honorable.
Deviot blasted, mocking
his honor, and soon knocked Loyax down until Maya
pounced, helping Loyax up.
Loyax struck Deviot in
the chest with his mace, sending him flying back, and the two escaped
together, successfully evading the Stingwingers.
Elsewhere, Loyax promised Yellow Ranger a fair fight;
she insisted he didn't have to battle, as he wasn't on the villains'
side, but he replied that evil was evil, unfazed by Maya's
objections that the villains would
destroy them both.
Saying Maya was too young
to understand, Loyax explained that many centuries ago, he had been a
young warrior just like Maya, having done battle
with his heart in the name of good; a flashback
showed him striking a Barillian
Bug monster on a mountainside with his mace, declaring, "You will do
no more evil, foul monster!"
Loyax had found the power of evil to be too strong and widespread and had finally
been defeated; eventually, he'd become part of the evil he'd so despised.
Maya insisted he could be
good again, but Loyax replied he was far too old to change, and that all
was left for him was one last glorious battle, with her.
Loyax, refusing Maya's
offers to be good again and fight with his heart, said he knew his
destiny, threatening Maya that her refusal to
fight wasn't an option, so she reluctantly morphed and proceeded to
During the fight, Loyax told her she was good, as
good as he'd been.
Both combatants were smoking and panting after a
while; Maya reminded him they could both win if
they stopped, but Loyax insisted the battle meant too much to him.
Striking Loyax with a powerful lightning slash
which broke his sword in two, Maya pinned him to
the ground for the fight to end; he told her to destroy him, but she
refused, admitting that while she didn't have his experience, she knew
he could be good again.
Maya held out her hand,
and after some thought, he began to take it, but a large electronic dart
stuck into his back, and he pulled it out, knowing it had been Deviot; on a cliff nearby, Deviot criticized the weakening of Loyax's honor
on the premise that one once evil was always evil.
Loyax grew, and he soon stomped in the distance
near the four Rangers, challenging them,
and then stomped near Maya; she begged him not to
do this, but he cried out that he couldn't stop it.
Below, Deviot was
working a remote control,
controlling Loyax through his wrist device.
Loyax eyeblasted the approaching Galaxy Megazord with orange energy beams
and knocked down Centaurus.
Saying he couldn't
stop himself, Loyax raised his arm, as he'd done earlier in reference to
the controller on his arm, but the Galaxy
Megazord and Deviot both looked up at the
sky, as though both tricked by an unintentional "hey, what's that over
As the Megazord
and Loyax struggled after the Megazord
had grappled his arm, Loyax told them to remove the remote device from him, and the Megazord shot an energy beam from its
hand, shorting out the device.
Giant Loyax swung his mace down at Deviot, saying no one could make him be evil ever
Saying Loyax had chosen the wrong side, Deviot pressed a button which caused spark
explosions all over Loyax, and Deviot then
discarded the remote and left.
Stunned, Loyax limply turned to the Megazord and thanked Yellow Ranger for showing him
the truth, telling her she was truly a noble warrior; he then fell and
At sunset on the beach, Maya led the teens up to
Loyax's broken sword; remembering his words about battling with his
heart for good, she spoke that he'd won his last battle, having proven
that his heart was still good, and that was how she would always
Maya stuck the broken
sword into the sand, and the teens somberly
walked off toward the sunset.
