813-RyDe.
-   As his last-ditch effort to defeat the Rangers, Diabolico summoned from gold energy bolts (apparently from the demon maw) a box which contained three monster cards.
-   On the front of the box was an image of a white angel-warrior demon, squatting with Diabolico's staff, white angel-like wings wrapped forward.
-   At the top of the design were two lightning bolts arranged in a V shape, a symbol connected with the demons' monsters but featured most prominently on the Troika monsters.
-   Jinxer nervously told Diabolico those were the only monsters he had left; with these, his three most powerful monsters, Diabolico said there was no way he could fail.
-   After removing the three cards from the box (not shown), Diabolico told his warriors to come forth, and the three cards flew from his palm into the maw.
-   The back of the cards were dark red with the gold V-bolts held by something black and white, apparently matching the future "skin" of the Troika monster.
-   In thundering gray mist within the maw, the cards flew through, followed by Falkar, Demonite, and Thunderon, colored (with matching background quarters, almost like a three-colored, open-topped corridor) blue, white, and red.
-   The three, looking like illustrations, flew out and transformed into their real versions in front of the maw.
-   Each of the monsters had smallish white angel wings; they also each bore the gold V-bolt design.
-   Diabolico assigned the three the important mission of destroying the Power Rangers, which Falkar laughed would be a pleasure, thinking it was a small task.
-   In a park overlooking Mariner Bay, the three monsters faded in.
-   Demonite held his hand behind him near his angel wing, and a long white feather materialized from blue energy.
-   Demonite remarked, "Such beautiful feathers. Such beautiful destruction!"
-   Each holding a feather, the monsters blew them away, and soon numerous feathers were drifting toward the city in the distance.
-   The Rangers fought the three monsters in front of a ferry loading dock.
-   As the five and three regrouped after the Rangers had taken a beating, Demonite told them they'd delivered a few presents from Diabolico, throwing a feather to Carter and explaining they were special feathers, harmless in the daytime.
-   To demonstrate what would happen when darkness fell, Demonite shot a red/black energy bolt from his fingertip to the sun, seeming to make an eclipse, but blue rays shone down only on the Rangers, forming a small dome of darkness.
-   In the dark, the feather glowed blue and exploded after Carter had dropped it.
-   The three monsters explained the feathers were all over Mariner Bay and would explode at nightfall; the only way to stop it was to defeat all three of them before nightfall.
-   Kelsey, Joel, and Chad grappled the monsters as Joel had Carter and Dana fire the Unilaser, but the monsters threw the three Rangers into the beam, taking the blast, and Demonite eyeblasted the two standing Rangers.
-   The Rangers ran off, pursued by the monsters, and as the chase continued for a while, the sun kept going down.
-   Running around a corner, the Rangers quickly leapt to the roof to fire the Unilaser in ambush, but the beam was reflected back at them with a blue energy dome, knocking them off the building.
-   Approaching, Demonite dropped a feather, and dozens upon dozens blew around the Rangers.
-   Just as nightfall hit, the blast from the feather explosions all around the Rangers sent them smashing back through a brick wall, where they demorphed weakly.
-   As the monsters approached the weakened teens, unmorphed Ryan leapt in kicking the monsters back.
-   Falkar was familiar with Ryan, calling him "the traitor."
-   After being pounded by morphed Ryan, the three monsters vanished.

814-CCob.
-   Later that night, the three monsters entered the skull castle lair, Demonite apologizing for Titanium Ranger's foiling of their plan.
-   Diabolico had a surprise for the Rangers, presenting a mirrored demon card for Demonite; Demonite told his master they wouldn't fail him again.
-   Attacking the city before the Rangers arrived, the three monsters remarked they'd have the place leveled by lunchtime.
-   As the Rangers fought Demonite, Falkar, Thunderon, and Demonite's clone, Demonite caught Carter's V-Lancer blade and slashed him back.
-   Bored with the Rangers, the three ran off, chased by the five as Ryan remained to fight the Demonite clone.
-   The Rangers' five V-Lancer beams were reflected as a crackling gold energy sphere by the momentary white dome around Demonite, Falkar, and Thunderon.
-   In the alleys of giant metal crates, the Rangers vanished around the corner as they'd done previously; Thunderon said he was sick of this silly game.
-   As the Rangers hopped overhead silently, Demonite quickly turned and eyeblasted them off the top of the bins, making them fall, but Carter wasn't there.
-   Carter suddenly sprang out blasting with his V-Lancer, Unilaser in other hand, and he thrust both against Demonite's chest, pinning him to the wall; he demanded that Demonite freeze and call off his clone, but the monster cockily refused.
-   Falkar reminded Carter he'd blow himself up at such close distance; Demonite proceeded to egg him on, shouting to give it to him.
-   The twin blasts fired pointblank into Demonite, engulfing Thunderon and Falkar in a wall of flame as the area exploded with chain reactions; Demonite chunks fell to the ground as the clone perished elsewhere.
-   The three advanced Diabolico cards used to enlarge each of the three monsters bore images of hands or weapon handles with a black/white surface matching the future "skin" of the Troika monster.
-   After giant Demonite's destruction, Diabolico was stunned, but Falkar and Thunderon cockily promised to take care of the Rangers for him.

815-SSun.
-   Some time later, Falkar and Thunderon entered for their master, and Diabolico told them to destroy the Rangers before Bansheera returned.
-   As the teens arrived while the two were attacking the western city district, Falkar and Thunderon egged them on, wanting to see their superpowers.
-   Some time after titan-sized Falkar and Thunderon had been destroyed by the Max Solarzord, Diabolico held a golf-ball-sized tranclucent gem (perhaps twenty-sided) for each of his three warriors, saying they would return even more powerful than before.
-   Inside the red gem was a small sword for Demonite; inside the dark blue gem was Falkar's wing emblem; inside the green gem was perhaps a spiked gauntlet bearing the V-bolt design for Thunderon.

816-CStr.
-   To make the Rangers fight his monsters together, he threw the three gems, which crackled together and formed Troika with red energy for Demonite, center, blue energy for Falkar, his right, and green energy for Thunderon, his left.
-   Troika's body was formed of white/black patterns containing wraithlike faces.
-   Troika's left hand had Thunderon's spiked gauntlet, his right hand had Demonite's sword hand, and his shins and feet were Falkar's boots; on his chest were the three gems arranged in a triangle, blue on top, red left, and green right.
-   Troika had three faces: Demonite's face and armor visor were center, Thunderon's face was on the left side of his head, and Falkar and his falcon helmet were on his right; Troika normally spoke with all three voices simultaneously, although they introduced themselves with independent voices.
-   Diabolico vanished after telling Troika to destroy the Rangers.
-   Troika slashed the Rangers rapidly while spinning on his heels like a tornado.
-   Charging, Troika shoved Carter back through some bins, then slung red energy from his sword at him.
-   The V-Lancers' Spectra Blast caused an explosion, but Troika spun from the flames and blasted again, this time leaving the teens demorphed and dirty following an explosion, at which point they fled.
?   Describing their defeat Joel remarked the Unilaser had bounced right off Troika, although this had not been shown during the brief battle.
-   Downtown later, Troika appeared from a large spinning ripple shaped like a horned melon fruit.
-   Troika blasted at people and buildings to lure out the Rangers; when they did, he pounded and blasted them at length.
-   Locking into combat with Troika after enhancing his strength with his Battle Booster, Carter grabbed Troika's sword arm and performed a karate chop to it, breaking the blade.
-   As both Troika and Carter punched, their fists collided, but Carter's punch smashed through and spark-punched Troika in the chest.
-   After pounding Troika with energized punches and chops, the Rangers finished him with lasers from the Battle Boosters, causing him to fall limply without exploding (see Triskull); this was the monster's last appearance.

813-RyDe.
-   When summoned from his monster card, Demonite's color was white.
-   Demonite was a red demon-faced warrior in white and gold armor, with a knightly helmet; the gold V-bolt design was on his chest.
-   Demonite had a white and red cape of thin strips of material.
-   Demonite's right hand was a gauntlet with a sword blade.
-   Demonite slammed Joel repeatedly into a car and vanished when Joel went to return fire; his sword gauntlet then flew by repeatedly, slashing Joel, then slashed off the roof of the car after he'd fallen in.
-   Demonite returned, shooting red eyebeams at the car, blowing it up as Joel leapt away.
-   To demonstrate what would happen to their feathers when darkness fell, Demonite shot a red/black energy bolt from his fingertip to the sun, seeming to make an eclipse, but blue rays shone down only on the Rangers, forming a small dome of darkness.

814-CCob.
-   As the Rangers and monsters regrouped after fighting a bit, Demonite threw out the mirror card given to him by Diabolico, and it formed with gold energy into a Demonite clone, but with a blue visor and two sword gauntlets.
-   The Demonite clone was mostly silent but was capable of speaking.
-   Both Demonite and the clone shot energy from their right-hand swords, Demonite orange and the clone blue.
-   As Demonite's clone grappled Carter and Demonite approached, Carter aimed his blaster inside his holster and shot Demonite, causing the clone to spark and release him.
-   Pursued through the alleys of giant metal crates, the Rangers vanished around the corner as they'd done previously.
-   As the Rangers hopped overhead silently, Demonite quickly turned and eyeblasted them off the top of the bins, making them fall, but Carter wasn't there.
-   Carter suddenly sprang out blasting with his V-Lancer, Unilaser in other hand, and he thrust both against Demonite's chest, pinning him to the wall; he demanded that Demonite freeze and call off his clone, but the monster cockily refused.
-   Falkar reminded him he'd blow himself up at such close distance; Demonite proceeded to egg him on, shouting to give it to him, although he cringed faintly in preparation for the blast.
-   Carter finally withdrew; as he turned, however, Demonite went to attack, at which point Carter twirled into a crouch and fired both weapons pointblank into Demonite, engulfing the area in an explosion.
-   Just as Demonite exploded, his clone elsewhere sparked, staggered, and exploded with purple and gold shockwaves.
-   In the industrial area, the wall of flames engulfed Thunderon and Falkar as the area exploded with chain reactions; Demonite chunks fell to the ground.
-   Twirling over Demonite's chunks, an advanced Diabolico card (Demonite's respective color being red) charged his chunks with gold energy; hundreds of purple spheres containing what looked like electricity then coalesced into giant (or slightly larger than giant) Demonite, who now had two sword gauntlets, no helmet, and an ugly red demon face with sharp extensions.
-   Pounding the Lightspeed Megazord, giant Demonite chopped to the Megazord's right shoulder, severing the arm off-screen.
-   Demonite was surprised by the arrival of the Supertrain Megazord.
-   Following blasts from the Supertrain's hand-mounted Gatling Blasters, the Lightspeed Megazord Saber's slash destroyed giant Demonite.

815-SSun.
-   Inside Diabolico's red gem, one of three for each of the defeated warriors, was a small sword to represent Demonite.

813-RyDe.
-   When summoned from his monster card, Falkar's color was blue.
-   Falkar was a white-faced warrior in gold and black armor with a falcon-head helmet and a red trapezoidal gem in his chest; the gold V-bolt design was on his shins.
-   Falkar's symbol was apparently a PL-like design with a dot.
-   Falkar held a three-pronged staff.
-   After fighting Chad with his staff, Falkar then planted the end of his staff into the ground and spun around it quickly delivering kicks in passing.

814-CCob.
-   Falkar was slightly distraught over the loss of Demonite, but Thunderon reassured him that they had Diabolico on their side.
-   As the Rangers confronted giant Demonite in the Lightspeed Megazord, Falkar curiously observed that it was quite an impressive Megazord, but Thunderon said Demonite would turn it into scrap metal.

815-SSun.
-   Diabolico told Falkar and Thunderon to destroy the Rangers before Bansheera returned; they agreed, although Falkar said he would miss having them around to play with.
-   As the Rangers were being pounded by Falkar and Thunderon, the girls ran off telling them they couldn't catch a fly; Thunderon started after them, but Falkar called him too slow, going instead.
-   Falkar blasted at the two Rangers with blue eyebeams from the eyes of his falcon helmet.
-   When Falkar rushed into a shack after the girls, Dana ended up blasting the entire roof down on him, but he would soon emerge angrily.
-   Falkar was surprised to find Thunderon approaching the five seemingly defeated Rangers, but the Rangers sprung their trap, annihilating him with their V-Lancers in ambush.
-   Falkar thought this was unimaginable, lamenting, "Poor Thunderon!"
-   As titan-sized Thunderon fought the Supertrain Megazord, Falkar watched below, planning to take the credit while Thunderon did all the work; standing behind him, Diabolico didn't think so.
-   Falkar lied that he wished he could join in, but that they should first watch how Thunderon did; in response, Diabolico threw an advanced Diabolico card (Falkar's respective color being blue), stabbing him in the back and enlarging him to titan size, at which point he had a modified helmet.
-   Max Solarzord's shield cannon destroyed titan-sized Falkar.
-   Inside Diabolico's dark blue gem, one of three for each of the defeated warriors, was Falkar's wing emblem.

813-RyDe.
-   When summoned from his monster card, Thunderon's color was red.
-   Thunderon was a hulking green-skinned beast in reddish-brown armor; the gold V-bolt design was on his gauntlets.
-   As the monsters fought the Rangers, Thunderon pounded the girls and then juggled them, making them spark with each bat of his fists.

814-CCob.
-   Thunderon punched a building, making it collapse into rubble.
-   Falkar was slightly distraught over the loss of Demonite, but Thunderon reassured him that they had Diabolico on their side.
-   As the Rangers confronted giant Demonite in the Lightspeed Megazord, Falkar curiously observed that it was quite an impressive Megazord, but Thunderon said Demonite would turn it into scrap metal.

815-SSun.
-   Thunderon blasted with green eyebolts.
-   As the Rangers were being pounded by Falkar and Thunderon, the girls ran off telling them they couldn't catch a fly; Thunderon started after them, but Falkar called him too slow, going instead.
-   Carter, Chad, and Joel were pounded by Thunderon until Kelsey arrived spraying with the sprayer weapon, blowing him back.
-   Eyeblasted by Thunderon, the Rangers collapsed, but as he approached, they sprung an ambush, shooting pointblank into Thunderon with the V-Lancers, their continuous lasers apparently burning through his body and emerging out the other side.
-   The V-Lancers' Spectra Blast then destroyed Thunderon.
-   An advanced Diabolico card (Thunderon's respective color being green) reassembled and enlarged Thunderon to titan size.
-   Max Solarzord's shield cannon destroyed titan-sized Thunderon.
-   Inside Diabolico's green gem, one of three for each of the defeated warriors, was perhaps a spiked gauntlet bearing the V-bolt design for Thunderon.
