* BBCQuarry: Thanks to the source material being a big offender (as much as ''[[Series/NinpuuSentaiHurricaneger 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."

** TheSixthRanger: A few times some of the Rangers weren't able to battle, others subbed for them, including Mr. Patterson for Pete after the latter was attacked (unbeknownst to anyone, by Trask in his armored form), and Dr. Bering and Maggie for Luke in the finale.
* HomeBase: The apartment the Rangers live in, Parkview, and later on a house by a cemetery after [[spoiler: the apartment becomes a MonsterOfTheWeek.]] Also, the Project: Phoenix hangar, to a lesser extent- during the latter half of the series, it's where the Zords and Dr. Bering are based. The space station became this by the end of the first season and into the second season [[spoiler:after the Phoenix base is destroyed by Mainframe in the hijacked Kestrel Megacruiser.]]

* 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 issue by changing the Hoverbirds' frequencies.

* MiniDressOfPower: Worn by the female rangers.
* [[MonsterOfTheWeek Monsters Of The Week]]: Initially powered by the infestation of an object by an other-dimensional bug creature known as a ''Jinnsect''; when the Jinnsects were used up, they switched to making monsters from biomass instead.
* {{Mook}}s: The Nobodies, as used by Trask and Dillik; Magda used Discards instead. Mainframe invented the Nobots late in the series, which carried over as the footsoldiers into season 2.

** 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.]]
* DeadFic: While the first season, based on ''Jetman'' is entirely complete and stands well on its own, the second season of the fic, which partially adapts ''Series/ChoujuuSentaiLiveman'', stopped after the fourth episode and shows no indications of ever getting finished.
* DeathByAdaptation: [[MonsterOfTheWeek Zephyros]]. Like his ''Sentai'' counterpart, Dryer Jigen, Zephyros is an IneffectualSympatheticVillain who gets to live in peace at the end of his episode. Unlike his ''Sentai'' counterpart, Zephyros returns a few episodes later, gets provoked into growing and destroyed (re-purposing an ImagineSpot from his ''Sentai'' episode for this scene).

* 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]]).
* NoodleIncident: We don't exactly ''learn'' what caused Maggie to break up with her ex-boyfriend Sean, but WordOfGod says that infidelity is a likely reason, given how Sean tries to be more honest with Maggie in his attempts to win her back.

* RetCon: A few, as detailed in the commentary, but one of the most notable ones is the explanation that the talk button on the [=AviMorphers=] doesn't work when unmorphed, thus explaining the lack of communication between the Rangers outside of battle.

* SecretKeeper: Quite a few, actually. Likely to keep in with the fic's (slightly) more realistic tone; obviously ''someone'' will suspect something.

* 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.
