Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Remix looks like they want to spoof every piece of media on the planet. This seems to include tokusatsu shows like the iconic Power Rangers franchise. At least, according to the latest clip for this upcoming Netflix animated series. Don’t believe me? Then why not check out that clip below, and watch the genre and media-bending chaos for yourself?

Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Remix ~ Dolph vs. Niji 6 Clip Details

I did not expect anything in that clip. Especially the sudden 16-bit video game graphics.

Netflix is proud to promote further their upcoming animated sci-fi series Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Remix with that clip above on YouTube. For the record, said clip is titled “Dolph vs. Niji 6”. That alone should give you an idea of what this clip is about, but I’ll elaborate.

That Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Remix clip shows our peerless hero, the titular Dolph Laserhawk himself, facing off against a parody of the Power Rangers. I mean, look at them. The Niji 6 is obviously a Power Rangers parody. From their color-themed costumes to their synchronized intro sequence, you can’t see them as anything else. The big difference here is in their weapons though. You can see and hear that the Niji6 is using actual guns. The Power Rangers have never used actual guns, to my knowledge, which only adds to the parody aspect of the Niji 6, on top of them being a completely dysfunctional group of morons. The hilariously jarring change to 16-bit video game graphics is just the icing on this cake for me.

Fortunately, we won’t have long to wait to see what else Netflix will pull out for this series. Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Remix will make its global debut on October 19, 2023. Alas, it’s also a Netflix exclusive, so you’ll need to shell out cash for a paid subscription to watch this bizarre nostalgia trip to the 90’s.

Never thought this is where I’d see Rayman as a dystopic announcer person.

Want an idea of what Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Remix is about? Or at least, something of an idea? Well, Netflix has an official synopsis for their upcoming series for us today. You can check it out below:

The year is 1992. The country formerly known as the USA is now called Eden, a technocracy ruled by propaganda and corruption. Super-soldier Dolph Laserhawk has just been betrayed by the love of his life, his boyfriend Alex Taylor, and locked up in Eden’s off-the-grid maximum security prison, Supermaxx. Dolph is forced to lead a team of rebel outcasts on risky undercover missions under the order of the prison’s shadowy Warden. CAPTAIN LASERHAWK: A BLOOD DRAGON REMIX is an original animated series mixing alternative Ubisoft characters from beloved franchises such as Assassin’s Creed, Rayman, and Far Cry in a highly referenced homage to the early 90s.
