* AnAesop: Most episodes are designed to deliver a message to the audience.

to:

* AnAesop: Most episodes are designed to deliver a message to the audience. Common ones include BeYourself, EvilWillFail, TheGoldenRule, {{Forgiveness}}, JusticeWillPrevail, and ThePowerOfFriendship.
* AlienInvasion: Most seasons deal with some variant of this.



* ChristmasEpisode: Three during ''MMPR''’s run, then one every year during the Neo-Saban era. During the Neo-Saban era, all of these were also {{Clip Show}}s. For example, in the ''Samurai'' episode ''Christmas Together, Friends Forever'', Emily writes a letter to her family, reflecting on everything she and her team have done together.



** MysteriousProtector: Often a SixthRanger, or the occasional mentor.



** TeamDad and TeamMom: Typically the mentor or another adult ally.



* HalloweenEpisode: A few. Often overlaps as a DressUpEpisode.
** During the Neo-Saban era, the Halloween specials were also {{Clip Show}}s: for instance, the ''Samurai'' episode ''Party Monsters'' was set in the MonsterOfTheWeek afterlife, as the ghost monsters told scary stories of how the Rangers destroyed them.



* PersonalityPowers: In a handful of seasons, the Rangers have special abilities outside of the spandex, and as such, there are some cases where this trope applies:
** FriendToAllLivingThings Cole Evans of ''Series/PowerRangersWildForce'' can communicate with animals.
** In ''Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder'', Conner [=McKnight=], an energetic soccer star, has SuperSpeed, and Kira Ford, an aspiring singer who’s unafraid to speak her mind, has a powerful [[MakeMeWannaShout sonic scream]]. Subverted by their teammate Ethan James, a TeenGenius who has InstantArmor and SuperStrength, though [[DareToBeBadass he grows into it]] through his CharacterDevelopment.
** ''Series/PowerRangersSPD'' has this apply to all of the Rangers: Jack Landors has the power to [[IntangibleMan walk through walls]], and he won’t let any obstacle get in the way of him doing what is right. TheStoic Sky Tate is disciplined and distant from his teammates, and shields himself as a BarrierWarrior. Bridge Carson is quirky but kind and very perceptive, and can literally see the best and worst of people through his AuraVision. Z Delgado was [[IJustWantToHaveFriends deeply lonely growing up]], and she can [[SelfDuplication make copies of herself]]. Syd Drew can grab objects, absorb their properties, and use them as a PowerFist, mirroring how as the LovableAlphaBitch, she’s used to having everything at her fingertips until her CharacterDevelopment kicks in.
** The Rangers of ''Series/PowerRangersMysticForce'' have ElementalPowers. [[PlayingWithFire Nick]] is hot-headed and impulsive. [[DishingOutDirt Xander Bly]] is TheLancer, and he’s more [[{{Pun}} grounded]] than Nick. [[ShockAndAwe Chip Thorn]] is bright and positive. [[MakingASplash Madison Rocca]] is TheHeart, and her sister [[BlowYouAway Vida]] is tempestuous and tough.



** ''Dino Charge'' had an unusual example where SixthRanger Ivan, whose powers are [[PteroSoarer pterodactyl-based]], would sprout wings and be able to fly for a few moments.
*** Later in that same series, Riley learns a new sword technique from Xenowing, an alien from a race of BirdPeople. When Riley delivers the “prism slash”, a pair of glowing wings similar to Xenowings’ own appear around him.



*** Their counterparts from [[Film/PowerRangers2017 The 2017 film reboot]] take this UpToEleven — TheQuarterback and former AlphaBitch dealing with a fall from grace, a GadgeteerGenius with [[UsefulNotes/HighFunctioningAutism autism spectrum disorder]], a StepfordSnarker who’s questioning her sexual orientation, and a HotBlooded FearlessFool.

** ''Series/PowerRangersRPM:'' A former Air Force pilot who [[WellDoneSonGuy wants his father’s approval]], a [[MemeticMutation SCOTTISH]] WideEyedIdealist mechanic, a FallenPrincess who TookALevelInBadass, a {{Cyborg}} with [[LaserGuidedAmnesia no memories of his identity]], and the PluckyComicRelief MetaGuy who accidentally bonded to a morpher despite having [[GivingTheSwordToANoob no fighting prowess of any kind]]. Later, they’re joined by a pair of CuteAndPsycho [[GeniusDitz Genius Ditzes]] [[TheDividual twindividuals]] who live to [[StuffBlowingUp make things go BOOM!]] TheMentor and MissionControl is a TeenGenius with NoSocialSkills and the victim of a GovernmentConspiracy. On top of that, she’s also TheAtoner [[spoiler: for creating and accidentally releasing the BigBad]].

** None of the shows ever had a female character in Red until 2005 with ''Series/PowerRangersSPD'''s Charlie, but she was fighting for the villains. The first heroic female Red Ranger, Lauren Shiba, appeared in 2012 with ''Series/PowerRangersSamurai'' (and even then, she got minimal screentime/development/relevancy/etc). However, there are a handful of examples of non-Red team leaders, including two women: Jen Scotts, Pink Ranger of ''Series/PowerRangersTimeForce'' and Taylor Earhardt, Yellow Ranger of ''Series/PowerRangersWildForce'', though sadly, Taylor becomes a QuicklyDemotedWoman when the Red Ranger ''does'' show up.

** Like ''RPM'', ''Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge'' also had a female SixthRanger: in the first-season finale, MissionControl Kendall Morgan became the Purple Ranger. However, for much of the second season, she was OutOfFocus due to limited footage of her Sentai counterpart. This is a bit strange because like all of the seasons in the Neo-Saban era, all cockpit footage for Megazord fights consisted of original footage, yet even when the Rangers used ''her'' Zord, she would stay behind.

* SuperheroParadox: Once could make an argument that the franchise has this zigzagged. For over 24 years now, different teams of rangers have battled various villains, and somehow, no matter how old or new the threats were, they're joined in battle again over a much shorter period of time. This was especially apparent during the ''Mighty Morphin'' days, where different villains kept getting attracted to Earth because of the Rangers' victories over Rita. Then again, starting from ''In Space'', every villain faced has eventually been destroyed or redeemed, so while there's a wide range of threats, the Power Rangers themselves have been pretty effective in destroying one ancient evil per year.
