We Won't Be Defeated! Decisive Christmas Eve Clash (負けない! 決戦はクリスマスイブ Makenai! Kessen wa Kurisumasu Ibu) is the forty-third episode of Denji Sentai Megaranger. This is the concluding episode of the Neziranger arc, featuring the deaths of the last remaining Nezirangers and the death of Evil Electro-King Javious I, and the destruction of Neziregia dimension.
The Megaranger track down the stolen Mega Voyager, leading to a climactic showdown with the Nejiranger... and unknowingly advancing Hinelar's ultimate desire!
When the Megaranger go to rescue Mega Voyager in a forest, they are confronted by the remaining three Nejiranger. Neji Yellow infects the Mega Voyager’s system, turning it against the other INET mecha. Mega Winger and Delta Mega are then captured.
Neji Red retreats so he could speak to Dr. Hinelar. He wants immortality in exchange for destroying the Megaranger. The scientist instead strips Neji Red of his free will, and his only goal is to kill the Megaranger.
Back at the battle, Neji Red pulls Mega Red out of the Mega Voyager. He nearly bests his Mega counterpart until Galaxy Mega arrives and distracts Neji Red. Mega Red enters Galaxy Mega’s cockpit, and he tries to help regain control of the Mega Voyager.
Neji Phantom, consumed with the desire to eliminate the Megaranger, accidentally forces Neji Yellow out of Mega Voyager. Like Hinelar did to him, Neji Phantom removes Neji Vulgar and Sophia’s free will, and all three monsters combined their powers into a single blast.
Javious, whose life force is nearly depleted by the Nejiranger, melds with the three Neji beasts. Super Galaxy Mega and Mega Winger lend their energy to Mega Voyager, and the Nejiranger are finally defeated by Mega Spartan. Subsequently, Javious is killed in the process.
As the Megaranger celebrate on Christmas Eve, Dr. Hinelar basks in the success of his plan to get rid of Javious.
