-->'''Ivan Ooze''': Now you have a choice. You either serve me, or you can join these insufferable dingle-dorks! ''*shows them Rita Repulsa and Lord Zedd trapped inside a snowglobe*''
-->'''Lord Zedd''': ''*in a high pitched voice*'' Goldar, get us out of here!
-->'''Rita Repulsa''': ''*in an equally high pitched voice*'' Don't you listen to that purple booger!
-->'''Lord Zedd''': Don't you dare betray me!
-->'''Goldar''': Uh, we never liked those dingle-dorks in the first place.
-->'''Mordant''': You said it. They stink.



* DamselInDistress: Kimberly twice. The first time was when a dinosaur (resembling a styracosaurus) skeleton cornered her and Tommy came in. This one is justified due to being BroughtDownToNormal (Kim is a natural gymnast, not a martial artist) and even Tommy had trouble with it. The second time was when her new Zord was trapped in Ooze's "electromagnetic deadlock" but [[DamselOutOfDistress she used her thrusters to get out of that one]].

* DamselInDistress: Kimberly twice. The first time was when in nearly every battle:
** While fighting the Tengu warriors on the planet Phaedon, one of the crow-like creatures grabs Kimberly by the shoulders and flies off with her. Unable to escape from it's grasp, Kimberly shouts for her teammates to aid her.
** When
a dinosaur skeleton (resembling a styracosaurus) skeleton styracosaurus but with big, sharp teeth) cornered her and Tommy came in. needed to distract the creature for her to escape. This one is justified due to being BroughtDownToNormal (Kim is a natural gymnast, not a martial artist) and even Tommy had trouble with it. The second time was the skeleton.
** During the battle with the stone warriors at the base of the monolith, Kimberly is on the defensive for almost the entire battle. One of the creatures pursues her up a shallow incline and a rock pile, during which she trips and stumbles several times and narrowly escapes being struck down. She hides behind a rock and it's only with Tommy's help that she's able to defeat the warrior

* EliteMook: Ivan Ooze's Ooze-Men are powerful and difficult enough to really hurt that the Power Rangers have to morph to beat them, while in the shows most mooks can be defeated without morphing.


Added DiffLines:

* WorfEffect: Quite a few of the show's characters are effortlessly defeated by Ivan Ooze to show just how powerful he is. Rita and Zedd are put in a snowglobe with a wave of his hand and the Power Rangers have to morph JUST to defeat his mooks and are later beaten by him without any trouble.

** Also Fred, who was plainly added for {{Kid Appeal|Character}}. Ivan Ooze and Dulcea weren't in the show either, but at least had explanations for why they were making their first (and only) appearances here. Fred was treated as someone who had always been part of the cast.
*** To be fair, Fred was really no different than any other Kid of the Week from the TV show, who the Rangers always treated like their best friend ever.

* DisneyDeath: [[spoiler:Zordon. Near the end of the film, while Ivan Ooze causes damage on the Earth and the Power Rangers are returning with their newfound powers, Zordon tells Alpha "Keep trying..." before breathing his last on the news anchorwoman's words, "Where are the Power Rangers?" When they return to the ruined Command Center after destroying Ooze, they hear from Alpha that they are too late, and they see Zordon's pale body lying on the broken pillar. Fortunately, with [[AllYourPowersCombined all their powers combined by concentration]], the Command Center is restored by their WorldHealingWave, and he is brought BackFromTheDead, restored as an entity once more.]]
