|~ Rhinosnorus' final words before his death.|
Rhinosnorus is a Rhino/sleep-themed Nighlok who appears in the two final two episodes of Power Rangers Samurai, appearing as the primary antagonist of the penultimate episode "Broken Dreams" and the secondary antagonist of the final episode "The Ultimate Duel", he is also the final monster of that season.
He was voiced by Campbell Cooley.
His head is that of a rhinoceros fused with an elephant. His hands have the heads of a feline and a bird. His feet have the heads of a bull and what looks like a snake.
Rhinosnorus was first dispatched by Master Xandred to induce good dreams. Although Jayden brushed Mentor Ji's explanation off as it "not being a bad thing", Ji warned him that Rhinosnorus could eat the dream incarnations of his now-dreaming victims, where they would never wake again. He attempted to consume as many of his victims as possible but was defeated by Mike and Kevin. He then retreated back to the Netherworld, much to Master Xandred's anger.
He is kicked out of the Netherworld by Master Xandred for complaining. After being powered up, he battles the rangers except Jayden (who is battling Deker) and is destroyed by Kevin's Hydro Bow attack. He grows into a Mega-monster, and but he is then destroyed with the Samurai Megazord.
Rhinosnorus later attended a Halloween party in the Nighlok Heaven where he recounts his battles with the Samurai Rangers.
- Rhinosnorus is the first rhino-themed monster in the Neo-Saban era, followed by Osogain in Super Megaforce and later Rygore in Super Ninja Steel.
- Like with fellow sleep-inducing monster Somnibot (from the Zeo episode "Rock-A-Bye Power Rangers"), Rhinosnorus' puns and metaphors are based on sleep and bedtime, e.g. "Time to turn out the lights!". This is echoed a few seasons later with Nightmare from Dino Super Charge.
