724 1 "Super Samurai" Jonathan Brough James W. Bates February 18, 2012 (2012-02-18)

The Rangers become concerned by the extent of the Sanzu River when water from the Sanzu River begins to seep into our world. Meanwhile, Arachnitor resurfaces and uses the water to prevent himself from drying out. At the Shiba House, Antonio works on the Black Box. After he completes it, he rushes to where the other Rangers are. The Rangers battle Arachnitor and Antonio finally makes it there. He informs Jayden and the others that he has finally unlocked the Black Box. Jayden uses this new power to access his Super Mode and defeat Arachnitor. Once Arachnitor grows into a mega monster, they use a new cannon to destroy Arachnitor.

In a subplot Bulk and Spike attempt to record the Rangers battling the Nighloks on film, so that they can learn some of their moves. But in a comical twist, they forget the SD card for the camera.
725 2 "Shell Game" Jonathan Brough Seth Walther February 25, 2012 (2012-02-25)
The Rangers must defeat Armadevil, a hard-shelled Nighlok who proves to be a formidable opponent. Meanwhile, Antonio loses his Samurai Morpher without knowing, and the two wannabe Samurais (Bulk and Spike) find it. The Rangers combine their attacks in a certain order to weaken Armordevil's shell and Kevin uses the Black Box to finish the Nighlok. In MegaZord mode, Armadevil's shell is fully restored, which proves difficult to break. The Rangers then repeat their first method of defeating Armadevil, but still is ineffective. The Samurais call the Claw Zord for the Claw Armor MegaZord, then the Samurai Battle Cannon, and finally finishes the battle once and for all. Afterwords, the wannabe Samurais put the morpher in the exact spot they found it. Emily and Mike show up moments later, relieved at Antonio's safety, and return his morpher from the ground. Antonio wonders what he missed all day.
726 3 "Trading Places" Jonathan Brough David McDermott March 3, 2012 (2012-03-03)
A new Nighlok named Switchbeast traps the spirits of Jayden, Mia, Kevin and Antonio inside a fan, a juxebox, a gnome and a fish while Emily and Mike try to defeat him to save the others. Jayden is a garden gnome, Kevin a ballerina music box, Mia as a fan, and Antonio (ironically) a fish he was going to eat. Switchbeast also traps the spirits of people at a public market in some of the items they were selling- including the wannabe samurais: Bulk and Spike into a soda can and a newspaper. Switchbeast does this to have the humans "recycle" his victims without knowing it, which will cause the misery of the people he switched to raise the Sanzu River. Emily and Mike manage to switch the Nighlok's spirit with Mike to make him force the spirits of everyone back into their own bodies. This works as even the Samurais return, but Antonio is traumatized when he escapes just as a neighbourhood cat is about to eat the fish he was in. Mike goes Super Samurai and he destroys Switchbeast, but with the Nighlok supersized, the Rangers must pilot their Claw Armor Megazord. The Rangers win and they celebrate with their friends by having a barbecue. Meanwhile, Master Xandred is angered at this defeat, and throws a Furry Wart out a gap. The Furry Wart meets Dayu on a river stream as Dayu plans to find a way to end Master Xandred's life for casting her out and breaking her harmonium.

A depressed Antonio sits in front of a lake when he gets a distress call from Jayden, stating they need his help. While the Rangers are fighting some Moogers, Antonio appears and he morphs. He pulls out the Barracuda Blade, and cringes in fear at the sight of it, seeing a fish in its place. After the Moogers are defeated the Rangers make sure Antonio is okay and Antonio reveals he's been afflicted with a debilitating fear of fish. Meanwhile at the Sanzu River a new villain, Serrator appears and offers help to Master Xandred in his plans and reveals that he was the one who sent Switchbeast to Master Xandred. Master Xandred is skeptical at first but when Serrator proves his loyalty to him he is accepted. Back at the Shiba House the team tries to help Antonio out with aversion therapy, Jayden is afraid of spiders, Mike is claustrophobic, and Mia is afraid of frogs. After that attempt fails, the Gap Sensor goes off and the Rangers rush into action. Antonio stays behind, and Mentor Ji shows him the LightZord, an ancient Zord that no Ranger has been able to master and Ji aks Antonio to see if he can unlock it. The Rangers deal with two Spitfangs before Serrator destroys the monsters and personally tests the Samurai rangers' fighting skills. Serrator effortlessly defeats the Rangers in battle. At the last second, Antonio arrives with the Lightzord to drive Serrator off before enlarging Lightzord to take out the Papyrox. Later on the Rangers ask Antonio how he got over his fear, he tells them and they laugh as it is shown that Mentor Ji had snuck up behind Antonio and stuffed a sushi in his mouth having him eat it.

Mike plays a prank on a distracted Antonio by putting dry cat food in his plate of trail mix but is caught by Mentor Ji who gives Mike a taste of his own medicine before deciding to continue working on the Disk outdoors, free of distractions. Meanwhile at the Sanzu River, Octoroo announces the return of the powerful Nighlok Eyescar to Master Xandred, who has a plan to trap the rangers. Upon completing the Shark Disk, Antonio and Mentor Ji are kidnapped by a swarm of Moogers. With the Gap Sensor sounding the rangers head to investigate their disappearance. While following the trail left by Antonio's dropped reel the Rangers are ambushed by a large amount of Moogers. Mike figures out there is something within the Light Zord and unleashes it, which turns out to be the Shark Disk. This allows Jayden to access Shark Attack Mode to destroy all the Moogers effortlessly. Eyescar eagerly awaits the arrival of the Rangers with his massive Mooger army, outnumbering the Rangers a hundred to one but Jayden having anticipating the situation, enters the fray with the Samurai Battlewing destroying most of the Moogers with an aerial assault. The Rangers then move in and rescue Ji and Antonio before defeating Eyescar together. When Eyescar returns to life as a mega monster the Rangers use the Shark Sword to finish him off.

There, he reunites with one of his old swim team members and begins to have thoughts that he should return to swimming, as his friend is not as good as he was, and his Samurizer is still missing. Mike calls Kevin's Samurizer so they can track down Skarf, discovering the Samurizer is in the Nighlok's arm. Elsewhere, Dayu finds a part of Deker's Uramasa as she is approached by Serrator who tells her where she can find Deker so they can serve under him in exchange for Dayu's harmonium and Deker's Uramasa getting fixed. Dayu and Deker enter the fray with Skarf so Deker (who is wielding a different sword) may fight Jayden in his Super Samurai mode. However, Dayu and Deker end the fight prematurely by destroying Skarf (since Serrator mentioned that the destruction of Skarf can unlock his secondary power), giving the Rangers the chance to retrieve Kevin's Samurizer. When the Nighlok enlarges, he gains a shield, forcing the Rangers to form the Samurai Gigazord for the first time, with Jayden using Shogun mode to break through the shield and destroy the Nighlok. Later, Kevin goes to the swim meet to see his old friend win after using Kevin's advice.

744 Special "Trickster Treat"[2] Jonathan Tzachor Michael Sorich October 27, 2012 (2012-10-27)
Master Xandred is upset about Halloween. Octoroo has a plan that involves Trickster, a Nighlok that traps the Rangers in bad dreams. In a forest, the Moogers attack people in animal costumes. Trickster watches the scenes from a movie theatre laughing. The Rangers (also dressed in animal costumes) arrive to the scene. After a brief roll call, the Rangers fight the Moogers. After the battle, Blue Ranger enjoys his best costume but then the Rangers ponder how they got to the forest. The Rangers are then teleported to a concert where Mia sings and the Rangers are her background dancers. After this, Trickster prepares their next dream. The Rangers are de-morphed and teleported in a quarry where they fight against Moogers. After briefly pausing and rewinding the events, Trickster enters the scene and challenges the Rangers. After a lengthy morph sequence (which Trickster points out), the Rangers take on Trickster and the Moogers. The Rangers combine the Octo Disc with the 5-Disc Cannon to form the Multi-Disc Cannon to defeat Trickster, who grows into his Mega mode. The Rangers summon their Zords and form the Octo Spear Megazord. Trickster grows to an even larger form. The Giant Trickster taunts the Megazord. Red Ranger recognizes the hypnotic sound from their past scenes. The Megazord destroys the source of Trickster’s illusions: A rotating fan. Back into reality, the Rangers power up their Spin Swords and attack Trickster one by one. Trickster grows to his Mega mode again. Red Ranger powers up to Super Samurai mode and summons the Claw Armor Megazord. The Rangers summon the Symbol Power Shield and trap Trickster into his own illusion. Trickster who is unaware watches the scene from the movie theatre laughing. The Claw Armor Megazord fires a blast through the movie screen which destroys Trickster much to his surprise. The Samurai Rangers then enjoy their victory.
