Underground Hades Empire Infershia


Underground Hades Empire Infershia

The Underground Hades Empire Infershia (地底冥府インフェルシア Chitei Meifu Inferushia?) are a fictional group of antagonists in the Japanese Super Sentai series Mahou Sentai Magiranger. They are from the Kedomono Realm at the center of the Earth, which was ruled by the mysterious N Ma. Fifteen years ago, N Ma created the Hades Gate to send his entire army to Earth, but was stopped by the Heavenly Saint Blagel. N Ma uses his agents to break the seal so he can conquer the surface world. However, over time, some of the Infershians began to realize N Ma's insane obsession of destroying Magitopia and the Ozu Family was reckless due to needless deaths. Once N Ma was destroyed, Hades Goddess Sphinx took over the Infershia to rebuild their world and start anew with Magitopia.

N Ma

Absolute God N Ma (絶対神ン・マ Zettaishin N Ma?, 2-34, 46-49) is the mysterious leader of the Infershia, going by many titles including Hades Beast Emperor N Ma (冥獣帝ン・マ Meijūtei N Ma?) by Wolzard and the Book of Prophecy and The Great Beast by Meemy, N Ma is a being of pure evil that is motivated by sheer malice and an uncontrollable hunger to devour everything in sight. Long ago, N Ma created the Hades Gate to send his armies to the surface and conquer it. After a fierce struggle, he and his followers were defeated and sealed away by Blagel. However, N Ma uses a "cursed reincarnation" to transform Blagel into his loyal servant Wolzard. N Ma contacted his minions via a white pool at the center of the lair, which turned red when in use. While his form was not entirely revealed until Stage 34, his appearance is of Lovecraftian origin. Blagel sacrificed himself once more to stop N Ma by sealing the demon's soul in his own body. The Hades Gods later managed to free N Ma from his new prison and he was resurrected in Titan's lifeless body, molding it to reflect his own twisted image: a skeletal fallen angel-like humanoid form. In this new body, N Ma could shoot numerous tentacles from his mouth and use his true power: absorbing all magic around him.

While he used the remaining Hades Gods to fight the Magirangers on the 3rd day of his revival, a fully powered N Ma went to Magitopia to personally destroy it and anyone there. Blagel and Sungel went to Magitopia to confront the Absolute God, only to suffer a painful death before N Ma attacks the Magirangers, taking them to the future that the demon intends to create: A world of pure darkness and despair. But the fact that one flower grew in such an area gave the Ozu siblings enough courage to keep fighting N Ma, with Kai forcing their foe to bring them all back to the present. By then, N Ma learns that Sphinx and Vancuria have ensured Infershia's defection from him, reviving Hikaru and Isamu in the process, resulting with both sides gathered against him. N Ma was finally destroyed when he attempted to devour the entire Ozu family's (including Hikaru's) overflowing infinite courage and magic, causing him to explode from the massive build up in his body.[1]

N Ma is voiced by Daisuke Namikawa (浪川 大輔 Namikawa Daisuke?, 46-49), with vocal effects by Katsumi Shiono (塩野 勝美 Shiono Katsumi?, 2-34).

Infershia Pantheon

Infershia High Commanders

N Ma had two High Commanders that ruled the Infershia in his stead.

Branken

Victory General Branken (凱力大将ブランケン Gairiki Taishō Buranken?, 1-18): The high commander, though it seemed Wolzard was calling the shots at times. Once a High Zobil, Branken strove to reach his rank and sees that the weak had no place in Infershia and had a short temper, attacking any beyond his rank who displeases them. Branken was part machine, and had gears that moved and a standing horn that steam came out, especially when he was angry. He wielded the Imperial Sword Hell Fang, whose blade is forged from N Ma's fang, that his uses his "Hell Slash" attack. As he couldn't enter the surface world, Braken ordered Wolzard to steal the Magirangers' Magi King magic to ensure his entry to the surface, but when the plan resulted with Magi Red sealing Braken into Infershia, Wolzard refuses him and uses the Magi King magic to his own ends. This sparked a rivalry between them as Wolzard seemed to have left Branken trapped in the seal, and because of this they constantly fought amongst themselves. Once Lunagel was captured by Wolzard, the Hades Gate rises up and Branken manages to force himself onto the surface realm before the gate closes. Branken overwhelms the Magirangers until Lunagel was freed and sealed the Hades Gate. Both he and his ambitions were soon destroyed by the bonds of the Ozu siblings (Who were aided by Magi Mother's spirit and magic) with Magi King. Only his Hell Fang remained, which Wolzard takes for his own.[2]

Branken is voiced by Hisao Egawa (江川 央生 Egawa Hisao?).

Meemy

Sorcery Priest Meemy (魔導神官メーミィ Madō Shinkan Mēmyi?, 19-34, Boukenger vs. Super Sentai): The high commander who took over when Branken was killed. He wielded an extendable fan, which had a mirror that allowed Meemy to see what was happening on the surface world, but in the Duel Bond he wielded a Magitopian sword. Meemy is a coward by nature who would resort to dirty methods during battle to ensure his own survival. He was originally the Heavenly Saint Raigel (天空聖者ライジェル Tenkū Seija Raijeru?), the Heavenly Saint of Lightning who saw magic as a way to grant his own selfish desires and along with Sungel was Blagel's pupil. He betrayed his comrades by reporting their plans to N Ma, leaving Blagel to the mercy of the Hades Beastman Four Kings of Hell, and sealing Lunagel's memories after she sealed the Hades Gate. Sungel, who had learned of Raigel's treachery, fought him and, upon being turned into a frog, sealed himself and the mummified Raigel in a cave, an event which Raigel swore undying revenge for.

His lifeless body remained there until it was found by Nai & Mea, who took him to N Ma to be resurrected to replace Branken. Meemy, seeing himself a vassal to N Ma, worked hard to bring N Ma into the human world with his clever planning. He eventually found a means with the Magirangers' Legend powers, which was temporarily successful. He was finally killed off by Hikaru (using Meemy's own sword) in the Magitopia Duel Bond, reverting back to Raigel as his body dissolved into dust. His final words were of the advent of the Infershia Pantheon.

During the events of Boukenger vs Super Sentai special, Memmy was the first to be bought back to life by the power of the one of Gajah's Gōdom Engines provided to Chronos to and aid him in his plan. He teamed up with Chronos to fight HurricaneBlue, AbareBlack, DekaBreak, Magi Yellow and BoukenSilver and easily defeated them because they refused to work together. In the end, however, he was used as an ingredient to create a new Precious, the Staff of the Three Philosophers, that powered Chronos up. After Chronos was destroyed by 'Burning Legend DaiVoyager, so too was the staff, and Meemy along with it.

Meemy is voiced by Yasuhiro Takato (高戸 靖広 Takato Yasuhiro?).

Vancuria

Phantom Spy Vancuria (妖幻密使バンキュリア Yōgen Misshi Bankyuria?): Infershia's spy, she is Queen of the Vampires adversely unaffected by sunlight and virtually unkillable. However, though she was immortal, her existence was a lonely one and overtime developed an ability to split herself up into the Nightmare Sisters as a remedy for it. As a result of her "special body", Vancuria was not constrained by the seal that kept the rest of Infershia underground and thus served as an overseer of her masters' plans. She had a bit of a crush on both Branken (Until then he tried to kill her for her failure) and Meemy (though she couldn't stand him at first). Vancuria also had some admiration for Wolzard as he helps her sometimes such increasing her abilities while pursuing Lunagel.

She awakened the Hades Gods when she discovered their lair, a hummingbird in size when compared to the Gods in their true size. She was kept alive by the Hades Gods so that she could serve them as a spy. After hearing Sphinx attempting to reason with Dagon and Sleipnir, Vancuria began to have second thoughts about N Ma. As a result, she went against N Ma's wishes by reviving Sphinx as well as those N Ma had killed. In the end, she joined Sphinx in the "new Infershia".

Vancuria is voiced by Misa Watanabe (渡辺 美佐 Watanabe Misa?).

Nai & Mea

Nai & Mea (ナイとメア Nai to Mea?): They are actually the split form of Vancuria, the result of Vancuria's attempt to have company to cure her loneliness. They are mischievous vampire-like girls dressed in Gothic Lolita attire, with Nai seems to be the 'older sister' as Mea tends to only repeat a portion of what Nai has just said. They usually combine back to Vancuria when they get serious in a fight. In their splintered form, the sisters use a variety of weapon from their Bloody Squall bombs to the signature weapons while powered up by Wolzard: the Exploding Turret Gun of Destruction and Dark Heavy Crossbow of Death. Their names together are the pronunciation of the English word "nightmare" in Japanese.

Nai is portrayed by Chiaki Horan (ホラン 千秋 Horan Chiaki?), while Mea is portrayed by Tomomi Kitagami (北神 朋美 Kitagami Tomomi?).

Wolzard

Madou Knight Wolzard
"Born within Darkness, Clad in Darkness... I am the Dark Magic Knight~Wolzard!"

Dark Magic Knight Wolzard (魔導騎士ウルザード Madō Kishi Uruzādo?, 1-34) is a mysterious figure who first appeared to work for the Infershia as their most important member. Wolzard was a Black Mage, a knight-like wizard who wields the power of darkness and was one of the two magicians within the Infershia's ranks. At first, he was considered the most important member of the Infershia, which caused tension between him and Branken. He used the Jagun Shield (ジャガンシールド Jagan Shīrudo?), which contained N Ma's right eye. Branken constantly dueled with him at first, and he frequently fought Magi Red as Kai sought to avenge his mother's death and defeated Wolzard in a one-on-one duel, breaking his WolSabre (ウルサーベル Urusāberu?) in two in the process. After Branken's death he claimed Branken's Hell Fang as his own and forged it into a new WolSabre. During this time he disappeared mysteriously and reappeared a little after Meemy took over and went on to fighting Magi Shine. Over time, Wolzard began to piece his past together and began helping the Magirangers more and more, until his identity was finally revealed as the Magirangers' father. Meemy recaptured Blagel and turned him back into Wolzard, but Kai managed to permanently free his father from the dark spell. Blagel immoblized the Magirangers after N-Ma absorbed their Legend powers, as they intended to fight his plan of stopping N Ma from entering the human world.[3] While under N Ma's evil and after his purification, Wolzard could enlarge himself and combine with Varikion to become either WolKentaurus (upper torso, head, and arms) or WolKaiser (chest).[4] To prevent his resurrection, Blagel absorbs N Ma's soul into him, trapping himself in his Wolzard form as he hid out to ensure the demon never returns. However, Dagon uses the Hades Ultimate Gods to force Wolzard to aid his children, resulting with him tracked down by Dagon who has Titan defeat him before he personally takes N Ma's soul and kill Blagel. But Miyuki rescued and healed her husband, restoring his magic and allowing him to become Wolzard Fire, a red version of the old armor, focusing on Isamu's fire magic.[5]

Wolzard is voiced by Tsutomu Isobe (磯部 勉 Isobe Tsutomu?).

Varikion

Dark Magic Horse Varikion (魔導馬バリキオン Madōba Barikion?)[6] is a horse-like Maju that serves under Wolzard. He appears from the ground when summoned by the spell Uu Uru Zazare. After Kai selflessly saved the creature's life, Varikion helped the Magirangers regain their Magi King powers by forming FireKaiser with Magi Red. But as Wolzard revealed, Varikion only combines with whomever he acknowledges as a great warrior worthy to unite with. After the battle with the Underground Hades Infershia Two Ultimate Gods, Varikion has not been seen again, so what happened to him after the finale is unknown. Forms WolKentaurus' lower torso and legs, WolKaiser's head, arms, back, and legs and VariJavelin (バリジャベリン Barijaberin?), and FireKaiser's head, "sternum", limbs, and back and VariLancer (バリランサー Bariransā?).

  • WolKentauros (ウルケンタウロス Urukentaurosu?): Wolzard fuses with Varikion when he utters "Uuza Douza Zanga. Dark Magic Fusion!" (魔導合体 Madō Gattai?). With Wolzard now purified, the spell for combination is likely to be "Goolu Luuma Gonga". Wolzard joins with Varikion in its four-legged configuration, becoming a giant centaur. When Wolzard utters "Uuza Douza Uru Zanga. Majin Fusion!" (魔神合体 Majin Gattai?), Varikion becomes a suit of armour around Wolzard and becomes Supreme Ruler of Darkness WolKaiser (闇の覇王ウルカイザー Yami no Haō Urukaizā?). His weapon is a staff made of Varikion's mane and tail. WolKaiser is now formed by the spell "Goolu Luuma Golu Gonga". Attacks with "VariJavelin Dark Magical Slash" (バリジャベリン魔導斬り Barijaberin Madō Giri?) and "BariJavelin Dark Dark Magical Slash" (バリジャベリン暗黒魔導斬り Barijaberin Ankoku Madō Giri?) while being evil, while under good it's "Heavenly Dark Lancer Slash" (天空魔槍斬り Tenkū Masō Giri?). He gained the power to form this combination from absorbing the energy of Magi Dragon's finishing attack.

Glúm

Hades Beastman Berserker Glúm do Bridon (冥獣人バーサーカー・グルーム・ド・ブライドン Meijūjin Bāsākā Gurūmu do Buraidon?) is the King of the Hades Beastman Berserkers (冥獣人バーサーカー Meijūjin Bāsākā?), the strongest species of Infershia's warriors. Seeking battle even in death, their undying soul cling to King's armor. As Infershian legends say, should the King of the Hades Beastman Berserkers and a pure-hearted human girl marry, all the spirits trapped in the armor would be resurrected into the world. Glúm kidnapped Yuka Yamazaki to be his bride in order to bring his army of Hades Beastman Berserkers into the world. He used the Puppet's Ring that absorbed the souls of humans to put Yuka under his control and make her love him. He wore a helmet that concealed his hideous face. As the type of Hades Beastman he is, once he becomes enraged, spikes shoot out from his armor, even from his face plate and his strength and defense doubles. During the wedding, he wore a cape. He wielded a glaive that could also turn into a sword or gun. His marriage would have been successful, if Kai hadn't intervened. He was consumed by his minion Living Sword to become Sword of Glúm, only to be killed by SaintKaiser, with Magi Dragon and Travelion's aid.

  • Ultra Hades Beast Living Sword (超冥獣リビングソード Chō Meijū Ribingu Sōdo?) was Glúm do Bridon's metallic servant that is actually an animated sword. A Godzilla-like beast whose body is composed of many metallic spikes and blades and whose roar sounds like both that of Gigan and Megalon. He fought and defeated Magi King, and aided in Glúm do Bridon's kidnapping of Yuka Yamazaki. He consumed his master in order to become Hades Beast Fusion Sword of Glúm (冥獣合体ソード・オブ・グルーム Meijū Gattai Sōdo Obu Gurūmu?, Movie). It is a centaur/scorpion type of creature of immense power and size, growing much larger than the Magi Majin although not as large as Meemy when he used his magic to enlarge himself for the first time. First to be killed by SaintKaiser.
