- apparently former protector of Edenoi
Before summoning his Ecto Accelerator to transform,
Dex announced, "I call upon the powers of light
and truth to become Masked Rider!"
Masked Rider wore a green and black
lightly-armored suit with a helmet modeled after an insect's head.
Masked Rider appeared to fight the Rangers just as well as his three unmorphed Edenoite friends did.
Seeing the Rangers fight
Masked Rider, Doubleface, one
of Dregon's henchmen, said that clearly
they also sought to possess Masked Rider's powers, so they too had to be
destroyed; he pointed out that if the Rangers
were allowed to defeat Masked Rider, they would obtain the Masked Rider
powers before Dregon.
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 with white or reddish energy.
The Masked Rider power had been bestowed upon Dex to battle evil and
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 when it became clear that
the Edenoites were losing the fight against
Dex said that Dregon must never get his hands on the Masked
Rider powers, for with them he would be invincible, and the entire
galaxy would be at risk.
The images from Dex's mind
crystal showed Masked Rider crashing to the ground from the sky and
pulsating with energy, then standing up and posing.
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!"
Masked Rider performed on the Cogworts the "Rider Kick," whereby
he leapt into the air, did a backflip, and came spinning down to kick
his opponents with glowing red feet.
When Masked Rider summoned his Electro Saber, its
handle formed from white energy from his Ecto Accelerator, and after
he'd pulled the blade out, it crackled with white energy and shot pulses
of white energy which destroyed the Cogworts.
To transform back into Dex,
Masked Rider held his right hand up with its thumb and pinky extended,
and with his left hand above his belt.
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.
