Most threats faced by the SPD Rangers were either alien criminals (working for Gruumm and/or Broodwing) or monsters (created by Mora). Both types of foes were known to pilot giant robots provided by Broodwing, generally in lieu of becoming giant themselves; robots were generally destroyed, while other foes (aliens and monsters) were captured. Names marked with an asterisk were listed in end credits.

(Robot styles listed below are based on visual similarities; no similarities were mentioned in dialog.)

How did Slate impersonate Bugglesworth (one of Mora's monsters) if he needed DNA to copy people?

Unspecified; Mirloc did say Slate needed "a data scan of their genetic code" to copy warriors, and Slate paid Broodwing for one or more such scans6, but we don't know whether he needed the genetic code to copy Mora's monsters (though if he did, one might assume this meant Mora's monsters had genetic codes).

From which robots did Mooney used parts to create the Gigabot?

As Mooney spoke of using "the best parts of the best robots," his monitor showed various parts being contributed from six robots7:

  • a torso from Gineka's robot8
  • a chest turbine from Praxis's robot9
  • drill arms from blue type 4 robot10
  • shoulders from magenta type 6 robot11
  • legs and lower body from black type 3 robot12
  • a pincer tail from the arm of a blue type 1 robot13

Was A-Squad's robot in the finale just a transformed version of Broodwing's drill tank?

Perhaps; though the footage did appear to show A-Squad's robot transforming from a tank matching the one Broodwing had recently used to infiltrate the Delta Base (and additional parts for limbs)14, the similarity wasn't mentioned in dialog. (It could also be noted that the glimpse of the robot's apparent tank mode passed fairly quickly, such that many viewers might not have noticed it.)

Were any of Broodwing's robots referred to as Zords?

None were, with the apparent exception of A-Squad's robot: after the team's robot transformed (from the drill tank Broodwing had used to enter the Delta Base?), Charlie noted, "It's Zord time," and the team entered the robot15.
