    Gosei (Power Rangers Megaforce)

    Gosei
    "I only awaken when the Earth is faced with an extraordinary threat." Really!? Well, where have you been for the past 20 years, huh?
    Gender: Male
    Type: Useless Mentor
    Status: Alive
    Media of origin: Power Rangers Megaforce/Super Megaforce
    First appearance: Power Rangers Megaforce


    Gosei is a supporting character from Power Rangers Megaforce and its sequel, Super Megaforce. He is also the mentor of the Megaforce Rangers and the protege of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers' mentor, Zordon.

    Bad Qualities

    1. The real main problem with Gosei is that he's a soulless rip-off of his mentor, Zordon and he sucks out the charm of him. If an anniversary season is to introduce a mentor similar to Zordon, the mentor should be better than this.
    2. He is a very useless mentor, rarely even calling the Rangers. Most of the time, he doesn't say a word unless it's something about new weapons and Zords, which Zordon doesn't do. (C’mon man, Even Mentor Ji of all mentors did so much more to help his groups of Power Rangers)
    3. He never explains anything to the Rangers such as:
      1. How did he get the Ranger Keys?
      2. What are these “new powers” and where did they come from? What “adversity” did Troy go through?
      3. Why does Gosei give out powerful weapons and Zords like Halloween candy?
      4. Who are the Armada and where did they come from?
      5. Why is Jake's Super Mega Mode and Key Green and not Black?
      6. Why are The Super Megaforce Modes themed after pirates (which the Japanese counterpart Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger, did not have the same characters from the previous one and were just actual pirates with a treasure full of ranger keys and permanently live in a Skyship, not humans from earth)? (And no “There's a Simple Explanation For That” does not count)
    4. He endlessly gives the team some new powers (including Zords, upgrades, etc. just like candy on Halloween) without any proper buildup and barely doing anything to help them whatsoever (which is, by the way, technically violating his “mentor” Zordon’s 2nd rule of being a Power Ranger: Never escalate battles unless forced to by your enemies).
      • What’s worse about this is that the Rangers never ask Gosei, Why they weren’t given these powers sooner if they were clearly better than the previous ones, or why they are being given the new powers.
        • Zordon at least had a valid reason to not give his group of Power Rangers access to new power-ups and upgrades right away; He did not want the rangers to escalate their battles unless they were forced to do so by the villains! Gosei on the other hand just keeps giving the Rangers new powers, Zords, and upgrades like lottery tickets, and makes excuses like, “awarding the Rangers for working together”.
        • Literally the only power up upgrade that the Rangers actually had to work hard to earn was the “Ultra Mode”
      • Speaking of Master Head, whom Gosei was based on, he at least provides info on how to the defeat villains and that he often sacrificed himself in the end of Goseiger.
    5. His design, while not as impressive as the holographic projections of Zordon's from Mighty Morphin and Dimitria's from Turbo, is just a big Megaforce Morpher (or called the Tensouder from the show's Japanese counterpart, Tensou Sentai Goseiger and not the Legendary Morpher from Super Megafroce, which it's Japanese name was called the Mobilates) stuck in a wall, that's it. What's really baffling is that we don't get to see what Gosei's possible "real" form looks like and is forgotten from finale of the series.
    6. Gosei is shown to be egotistical as he named nearly all of the Megaforce Rangers weapons, gear, Zords, Megazords, and Power Cards after himself. He even based the Rangers Gosei Morphers on his own image!.
    7. His backstory is also filled with plot holes, the worst offender easily being in the 1st episode in which he stated that he “only awakens when the earth is faced with an extraordinary threat”. Really? The Earth's been endangered for 20 freaking years, yet you never awoke until now?!
      1. So are we just supposed to assume that 5 alien invasions:
        1. In the case with Rita Repulsa, Lord Zedd, and Master Vile from all three seasons of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.
        2. Divatox from Power Rangers Turbo, Astroneme from Power Rangers In Space.
        3. Trakeena from Power Rangers Lost Galaxy.
        4. Lothor from Power Rangers Ninja Storm.
        5. 2 separate incidents of a race of demons trying to merging with us (in the case with Queen Bansheera from Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue.
        6. Octomus the Master from Power Rangers Mystic Force.
        7. A evil machine empire trying to destroy the earth just to earn respect from rival villain organizations (in the case with King Mondo from Power Rangers Zeo).
        8. The space time continuum getting ripped apart by a mutant gang (in the case with Ransik from Power Rangers Time Force),
        9. The pollution awakening an ancient group of monsters called Orgs trying to take over the world (in the case with Master Org from Power Rangers Wild Force).
        10. A mad scientist trying to bring the dinosaurs back from extinction to wipe out the human race (in the case with Mesogog from Power Rangers Dino Thunder).
        11. The return of an ancient warlord trying to exterminate humanity and replace them with demonic beasts (in the case with Dai Shi from Power Rangers Jungle Fury).
        12. An alien empire enslaving planets to eventually take over the universe(in the case with Omni and Emperor Gruumm from Power Rangers S.P.D.).
        13. A nighlok trying to flood the earth with demonic rivers just so that demons could live there too (in the case with Master Xandred from Power Rangers Samurai/Power Rangers Super Samurai), and an another nighlok trying to split the earth in half just bring the return of a river (in the case with Serrator from Power Rangers Super Samurai).
        14. Multiple villain organizations joining forces to steal the Crown and take over the universe (in the case with all of the antagonist of Power Rangers Operation Overdrive).
        15. Last but not least, near universal genocide at the hands of a robotic A.I. in the case with Venjix from Power Rangers RPM doesn't count as "extraordinary".
      2. A better excuse would have been saying that he "was told to awaken when the Insectoids arrived on Earth." that way he had a “valid” reason to finally awaken and give the implication that the Warstar Insectoids are a very dangerous powerful villain group that only the Megaforce Rangers can defeat.
        • But 'NOPE!' It's just yet another regular old generic "aliens who want to take over the world " cliche threat where he never bothered to wake up until Megaforce happened.
    8. Other than saying that he's the “protege” of Zordon, we don't learn anything about him.
      1. How did he created Robo Knight?
      2. Much like Mentor Ji in Power Rangers Samurai, we aren't told a thing about Gosei's past like: When was Gosei created? When and how did he meet Zordon?

    Good Qualities

    1. His design, despite in BQ# 6, can be pleasing to look at occasionally while at least trying to be original.
    2. His half-hearted pep talk in the finale is the last anyone will ever see or hear of Gosei ever again. Super Mega Good Riddance.

    Trivia

    1. He is also the American counterpart of Master Head from Tensou Sentai Goseiger, unlike Gosei, he does not appear in Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger, the Japanese version of Super Megaforce.
