* ComicallyMissingThePoint: In one episode Toni meets an interesting guy and her friends immediately start acting all overprotective of her. Toni compares her friends' attitude to Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston's relationship in, um....''TheBodyguard''.

* FollowTheLeader: The villains’ first evil act of the series is to blow up a manned space station. In one episode a monster goes around stealing women’s voices prompting the guys to set a trap by dressing in drag. Near the midpoint of the story the rangers get an unpiloted robot that turns into a giant gun, which Carmen steals while pretending to betray the team to trade it for MAYHEM captives. Something about these situations makes one think of [[Series/ChoujinSentaiJetman jets]].
** In the first episode the soon-to-be rangers are snatched up by their future mentor, who tells them about the imminent arrival of evil aliens on Earth, that they've been chosen to wield superpowers to repel the aliens, and who lets the disbelieving youths go when they don't quite buy it. The youths are then forced to fight the aliens' soldiers and take a chance on their supposed powers when they find themselves outmatched. That sounds more like "Day of the Dumpster" than most Sentai pilots (where they either see evidence of the villains' invasion first, or already belong to the organization), which is really weird considering the original point of this story.
** The story started in [[Series/DenjiSentaiMegaranger 1997]], and has its SixthRanger in a silver suit and a wisecracking creature that bites the monsters to enlarge them.
** The writer had sections of his site devoted to ''Series/KamenRiderBlack'' and its sequel ''Series/KamenRiderBlackRX''. And his villains have an insect-like space fortress.



* MissingEpisode: Abduction of the college president.

* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: A lot were perversions of movie titles or Hollywood-related sayings (''e.g.'' “Hooray For Hollywood Vehicles”, “[[BillAndTedsExcellentAdventure Kunio's Excellent Adventure]] [[AdventuresInBabysitting In Babysitting]]”, “[[Film/TheGoodTheBadAndTheUgly The Good, The Bad and General Ug]]”).

* InsultBackfire: In a meta sense. ''Scanranger'' was written as a TakeThat to ''MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' (when it started), but borrows enough elements from it you'd almost think it was an AffectionateParody.

* CelebrityParadox: Sometimes the story drops the names of actors who appeared in ''ChoujinSentaiJetman'' (a ranger even meets two of them in the BeachEpisode). Other times the story describes ''Jetman'' as happening for real.

* IntercontinuityCrossover: Maybe. Two with ''ChoujinSentaiJetman''. Maybe, because the story wavers back and forth between ''Jetman'' really happening, and just being a TV show, with the "real" Jetman characters living in an alternate dimension.

* SmurfettePrinciple: There’s only one woman on either side for better than thirty episodes. There’s also the Scanrangers’ commanding officer, but one wonders if that’s more on account of feminism or Vince Jones’s idolization of ''ChoujinSentaiJetman''.

In this stunning homage to SuperSentai (and [[TakeThat fully-extended middle finger]] to ''PowerRangers''), Professor Daphne Alexandria is more than just a mild-mannered film professor, she’s the head of a secret organization that protects Earth from hostile aliens, and her prize students are being drafted. Why? Because the power she has to bestow can only be used by those with a passionate love of movies. And why does Alex feel the need to trust the fate of the world to five crazy kids? Because of the imminent invasion of the not terribly effective MAYHEM Corps, hell-bent on conquering New Jersey! If the rangers can stop harping on their hatred of Haim Saban and all things Power Rangers long enough, they might just pull this off. And despite how everything sounds, [[SeriousBusiness it takes itself too seriously too often to be a parody.]]

Written by Vince Jones, who was outraged at how {{Tokusatsu}} programming was watered down into the ''PowerRangers'' before making it to American airwaves. Ran from 1997-2006, releasing 39 “episodes,” a Christmas special and a crossover “movie” with ''ChoujinSentaiJetman''. The last two episodes finished were basically revisiting the crossover movie.

* Vin Furamatsu Henderson a.k.a. Vin Harlock/'''[[color:red:Redscanner]]''': Athlete of Action. TheHero. VillagePeople fan. Empowered by action movies, though in practice it’s more like movies with [[HeroesPreferSwords sword fighting]]. Changed his last name because of his admiration of anime hero CaptainHarlock.
* B.C. Shimamura/'''[[color:blue:Bluescanner]]''': King of Comedy. Meant to be the PluckyComicRelief and TheHeart, but often ends up being TheLoad and TheScrappy. Empowered by clean comedy. Only clean comedy.
* Nick Simonds/'''[[color:green:Greenscanner]]''': SPFX Soldier. TheSmartGuy (relatively speaking) and a CasanovaWannabe. Empowered by special effects. No, that isn’t a movie genre.
* Kunio “Mikey” Mikimoto/'''[[color:yellow:Yellowscanner]]''': Animemaniac. Kind of a ButtMonkey. Empowered by {{Anime}}. Not just any animation, anime. The writer goes to pains to explain how one of the [[RudolphTheRedNosedReindeer Rudolph]] movies counts in the ChristmasEpisode.
* Carmen Diaz/'''[[color:yellow:Yellowscanner II]]''': AffirmativeActionGirl. Kunio’s crush who goes from a stuck-up bitch to a born-again superhero after he’s crippled in battle and her own anime powers surface.
* Toni Montanez/'''[[color:pink:Pinkscanner]]''': Musical Mistress. TheChick. Empowered by musicals.
* Takeshi Hayata/'''[[color:silver:Silverscanner]]''': Gin Hikari no Senshi. TheSixthRanger. CoolOldGuy. Adjunct professor of Asian Studies. Empowered by [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment Tokusatsu]].
* Lieutenant Commander Professor Daphne Alexandria: “Professor Alex” for short. The BigGood. TeamMom, to the extent that the rangers really do sometimes seem to look on her as a surrogate mother. Widow of Roger.

* MagicAIsMagicA: How the characters' powers worked could be inconsistent. Vin needed to be extremely specific about which ''Zorro'' movie he wants to use in one episode even though what he was copying was the [[ZorroMark Z-slash]] you'd see in any version, but in the next Takeshi was getting away with basing an attack on the ''[[MetalHeroes Space Sheriff]]'' series in general. Ug's genre is war movies but he used his powers to whip up the spider-mech from ''Film/WildWildWest'', which most viewers would probably not call a "war movie". At one time Nick, using his special effects powers, taps into ''RockyIII'' to use Hulk Hogan's wrestling moves.
