My Favorite Sentai Moral Event Horizon Villains

Super Sentai had moral event horizons like it or not.  A moral event horizon is when the villain has crossed the line beyond, that he/she has chosen to do something so despicable that the damage will be so irreparable.  Now here are some moral event horizons I find that were just plain crazy and sharp to hit:

Jarmin from Turboranger- Arguably, she's displayed the most cruelty in the show for some.  Her first moral horizon event was when she tricked the two brothers Fire and Ice to merge into one by making them fight with each other in episode 19.  Or another in episode 27, she tortured Chime Bouma in a very unspeakable way which she actually destroyed her people for not serving her and whipped her severely many times.  It was arguably the most cruel act in Turboranger no wonder Zimba is impressed with her.

Zeba from Maskman- In the final episode, he is revealed to have little or mercy as he double-crossed his own subordinates to get what he wants.

Radiguet from Jetman- Yep from the worst bastard in Super Sentai, he doesn't give a damn to what he does. His first could be when he actually killed a girl he grew to care for even after she took care of him during his amnesia.  He later killed all the Dimensians just to ensure the last of them will die.  Instead of killing Lou from Berserk, he actually provoked her anger many times just to make sure she becomes his but when that failed, he decided to use her fiance Duran against her to show he's a sore loser.  With Tranza, he chose to double-cross Ryu just to get Tranza defeated giving up another chance he could change for the better.  Perhaps his greatest moral event horizon has to be Maria because as he grew to want her, he only showed desire and not real love.  When he lost her, he killed her not just to satisfy his bloody desires or revenge for unrequited love, but also to make Ryu's mission to save her a failure.  

Shaddam from Dairanger- While he started out "pretty standard" at first but he eventually showed he was a monster.  He never treated his wife right nor did he care for his sons Kou and Akomaru, viewing them as competition to rule the Universe.  Also, he feigned loyalty to Gorma XV many times to get what he wants.

Ryuon from Boukenger- No doubt the most cruel Boukenger villain ever.  In Tasks 15-16 he promised Ragi that he will help revive the water Metropolis but at the condition he got rid of the insignia, turned Ragi into a dragon and when the Aqua Crystal was not found, he brutally beat him.  In Tasks 33-34 he together with the Questers turned Natsuki against the Boukengers and planned to use her life force to power his greatest Jaryuu robot.  

Yaiba of the Darkness- Compared to Gure in Jetman, he has no sense of honor whatsoever.  While the Questers had funny moments, Ryuon had some ridiculous moments (a few) but this guy?  Nah, he hardly gives any comedy at all.  In fact, he has menaced Masumi from childhood up to growing up.  He betrayed both Gekkou and Shizuka for his own personal benefits.  He would do ANYTHING to win, manipulate people and he is really Boukenger's real sadist.

Long- This one is another so cruel I guess he's got a lot.  He has manipulated Jan's dad Dan, he also double-crossed Rio and Mele for his personal purposes just to prove how sick he really can get.  The worst part is where he kept lying to them, speaking so softly and gently to them as if he were kindly but he was in reality full of evil.  I guess that's why some fans agree he is worse than Radiguet.

Any more to add?  Feel free to COMMENT your own!


  1. Basco passed quite a few Moral Event Horizons; like threatening to blow up an entire high school for a grand power, or even shooting Sally and betraying her in order to get inside Gokai Galleon and steal the ranger keys.

  2. Well Shadam of Goma, is ill will no moral. He treats his wife a prisoner for years and both his sons like pawns and competition. As both Kou and Akomaru suffered or dies he had no remorse but his ambition to be Goma XVI.
