Added DiffLines:

* {{BFG}}: The Phoenix Cannon. The "gravity ball" attacks used by the Sky Enforcers, Echo Enforcers and Battle Enforcers could also count, in a sense.


Added DiffLines:

* CoolCar: The Phoenix Cannon's Phoenix Rover form, although no Ranger ever actually drove it (that was only in ''Jetman'').


Added DiffLines:

* PowerFist: The Battlizers that the Rangers used, which could fire a "Battlizer Beam" and enter a "Striker Mode" for powered punches. They later got a MidSeasonUpgrade where they were now larger, and the back portion was now a remote-controlled called a Battle Bird, which could also combine with their Sky Blasters to form Battle Enforcers.

Added DiffLines:

** The project that initially spawned the Ranger tech was named "Project: Jetman", mainly because the Echo Blasters featured the name on the sides and he couldn't edit those out. [[spoiler: Not only that, but thanks to a wormhole generator, [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Zordon of Eltar]] assisted Dr. Bering prior to the first episode.]]


Added DiffLines:

* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: Averted nicely- the scripts and several other clues say that Spring Valley is this world's counterpart to Oakland, CA. Other towns were mentioned on occasion, all of which are stated in the scripts to be alternate locations to real-world towns, with the exception of Windvale.

* DarkerAndEdgier: Compared to the actual ''Power Rangers'' shows made during TheNineties, particulary with the introduction of [[HumanResources biomass.]] However, the author does take care to edit Sentai footage the way it would be edited for ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' (no smoking, drinking or impalement).

* HomeBase: The apartment the Rangers live in, Parkview, and later on a house by a cemetery after [[spoiler: the apartment becomes a MonsterOfTheWeek.]]
* JustifiedTrope: The series does this to a few PowerRangers tropes, such as why the villains don't send more than one monster at once (they're highly territorial and attack each other on sight...though this still doesn't explain why they don't just send each to a different country) and why no one ever seems to die in the monster attacks ([[spoiler:because the future Rangers knew when the attacks were coming and evacuated the buildings]])

Added DiffLines:

** Chris, the Black Ranger, is much more of a team player than his Sentai counterpart, [[ClassicalAntiHero Gai Yuki]], a constant gambler and womanizer.


Added DiffLines:

* SparedByTheAdaptation: Chris. His Sentai counterpart, Gai Yuki, is killed by a mugger on the wedding day of his former love interest Kaori and romantic rival Ryu.

** Although some of the dialogue still probably wouldn't fly in PowerRangers, including some references to premarital sex and quite a few uses to [[NeverSayDie the k-word.]]


Added DiffLines:

* DragonAscendant: [[spoiler:Mainframe.]]
* EliteMooks: Somebodies, via a DeadlyUpgrade.


Added DiffLines:
