Recap / Power Rangers Ninja Steel S 02 E 08 Caught Red Handed

Go To

Brody is accused of stealing something from one of his teachers.

Episode tropes:

  • The Bad Guy Wins: Madame Odius manages to destroy the Megazords and fry the Zord Power stars, meaning they can't just re-summon them.
  • Camping Episode: The Rangers minus Brody go on one when he’s stuck in detention for being accused of stealing Principal Hastings' compass.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Foxatron manages to break apart the Ninja Steel Ultrazord into the three main Megazords, and its attacks were strong enough not just to defeat the Zords, but fry the Zord Stars.

  • Darkest Hour: The Rangers lost their Zords, the Power Stars are fried, and they only have one day to figure out what to do before Foxatron is reactivated.
  • Honor Before Reason: Brody could have just lied that he did put Principal Hastings compass into his backpack and get out of detention, but he refuses. It turns into a positive spin of Laser-Guided Karma as, once Hastings learns of what really happened, she praises Brody for telling the truth, apologizes for falsely accusing him, and even gives him the same compass he was accused of stealing as a reward.
  • Informed Ability: Despite calling himself the “The Ninja of Surprise Attacks and Strategy”, Rygore really never showcased much except for rolling a die and creating attacks from it. Not much strategy in letting random chance decide your move, and not much surprise in expecting your enemy to wait for you to do that.

  • Subverted Catchphrase: Madame Odius knows how to rub it in after laying waste to the Rangers' entire Zord fleet: “Show’s over! Ninjas lose.”

How well does it match the trope?
