* AllYourBaseAreBelongToUs: Nearly every GrandFinale before Neo-Saban era, with only ''Zeo'' and ''Jungle Fury'' being spared some form of it - both because they went for epic {{Storming The Castle}}s instead; and ''Ninja Storm'' and ''Dino Thunder'' had ''both'' (simultaneously, even!). ''In Space'' did an All Your Base in the '''fourth episode''', with help from the [[Series/NinjaTurtlesTheNextMutation Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles]]; and ''RPM'' had it practically as a RunningGag for a little while. Thus far, Neo-Saban avoids this so far, with both of theirs being either a FinalBattle outside the base or like those other seasons, StormingTheCastle.

** Though the phrase itself is never said in the episode, just the opening of the show.

** Though the phrase itself is never said in the episode, just the opening of the show. In the show, Zordon tells Alpha to find "5 overbearing and overemotional humans," which Alpha translates to mean teenagers.

Added DiffLines:

* TheWorfEffect: In the martial arts scenes, often it will be the [[RedIsHeroic Red Ranger]] or the SixthRanger who gets knocked down first when they're trying to establish a new, more powerful threat or that the rangers' powers have weakened. Typically followed by the other rangers getting knocked into them.

* FleetingDemographicRule: The seasonal themes; recycled ones include dinosaurs (eleven years between the first season of ''Mighty Morphin'' and ''Dino Thunder'', ten between ''Dino Thunder'' and ''Dino Charge''), ninjas (eight years between the third season of ''Mighty Morphin'' and ''Ninja Storm''), animals (six years between ''Wild Force'' and ''Jungle Fury'') and {{Cool Car}}s (twelve years between ''Turbo'' and ''RPM''). Also, we had Rangers-as-public/civil servants in ''Lightspeed Rescue'' (2000) and themes around time and space in ''Time Force'' (2001) -- ''SPD'' would be aired in 2005 and its seasonal theme is arguably a combination of those two (and although the events are ''In Space'' is alluded to here for normalizing relations between Earthlngs and non-Earthlings, it is relatively minor theme-wise).

* CommLinks: The ''Mighty Morphin''' Rangers had communicators that also happened to tap into their mentor's teleportation system. Later teams had communications built into their morphers (and many of those are cell phones anyway). ''Dino Charge'' is the first season in years to have the communicators separate from the morphers, instead having them double as the holders for the Dino Chargers.

''Ninja Steel'' similarly has a separate and ''PR'' exclusive Ninjacom.

During production of its ninth season (''Time Force''), the show was acquired by Creator/{{Disney}} as part of a Creator/SabanEntertainment package deal for the purchase of what is now known as the Creator/ABCFamily channel and thus ''Wild Force'' would be the first season produced under Disney and the last to be produced by MMPR Productions in California. During its eleventh season (''Ninja Storm'') production moved to New Zealand and Village Roadshow Productions took over production of the show until 2009. As of 2010, Saban has repurchased the series and all rights to it from Disney under a new umbrella venture called Creator/SabanBrands, effectively uncancelling ''Power Rangers''... again.

* LighterAndSofter AND DarkerAndEdgier: Yes, the sword cuts both ways. There's a lot of blood and death that gets cut out of SuperSentai...but a lot of silly humor gets the axe as well.

* PaleFemalesDarkMales: Seen on Blue Rangers; compare Tori and Madison to just about every male Blue Ranger ever. The only exceptions are the Blue Alien Ranger Cestro and Aqua Dino Charge Ranger James, who wore lighter shades of blue in their uniforms.

* PlugNPlayFriends: Any rangers who aren't friends before gaining their powers often become close friends almost immediately after becoming a team. New additions to the team also experience this. The exception to this is the occasional sixth ranger, who will butt heads with the Red for a leadership position for a few episodes before settling down.
