* BBCQuarry: Thanks to the source material being a big offender (as much as ''[[Series/NinpuuSentaiHurricanger Hurricanger]]''/''[[Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm Ninja Storm]]''), it has a lot of quarry-based scenes; [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] when a Somebody remarks "Here we are again... the quarry. Not the most creative choice, but it'll do."

* Detective Ramon Morales: Police detective for the city of Spring Valley who keeps encountering the Rangers and investigates them, eventually learning their identities and assisting them on several occasions.



* MagicalSecurityCamera: Justified; the Rangers each have their own small camera drones called ''Hoverbirds'', which automatically seek trouble and display it in the Rangers' [[TransformationTrinket [=AviMorphers=]]] and helmet displays. Unfortunately, Dillik and Trask still have access to the camera feeds from the space station, which, among other problems, [[spoiler: [[RealityEnsues leads to the Rangers' apartment building being turned into a monster and getting destroyed by the Megazord]]]]. Dr. Bering fixes this issues by changing the Hoverbirds' frequencies.

* ContinuityNod: The continuity was intentionally kept tight, so many episodes are arc-based with multiple subplots, and many characters originally intended for one appearance- like reporter Stacy Keene- were instead reused instead of inventing new characters.

* 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]]).

to:

* InstantExpert: Averted on multiple counts. When it comes to things like martial arts and sword usage, Luke gives the other Rangers crash courses. For the tech, info is displayed in their visors (much like ''Lightspeed Rescue''). They even somehow had English instructions for the Sky Kestrel [[spoiler:(apparently Zordon somehow managed to give the Illamites a way to upload the instructions)]].
