* At first glance, [[MahouSentaiMagiranger Kai]] seems a straight example of the LawOfChromaticSuperiority, possessing power and mech configurations in excess of what his non-red siblings are able to achieve. However, take into consideration what [[MrExposition Mandora Boy]] tells us in Stage 4, that magic beyond what you're capable of is highly fatiguing, and it becomes apparent that it's less that Kai is more powerful, and more that he's the one willing to push himself beyond his limits without a second thought. This also plays into his unique mech configurations, like Fire Kaiser and Saint Kaiser, which he's able to get because he's the one leaping forward and taking chances while the rest of his family hesitates. - cypsiman2

* The Legendary Magicians became the Heavenly Saints who provide the Ozu Siblings with their spells. When the Ozu siblings meet them in Magitopia during TheMovie, they don't say anything despite being hailed by the siblings. Then, in Stage 31, they are told that if they overuse their [[SuperMode Legend Modes]], they will become Heavenly Saints and lose all memories of their human existence. So then, did the Legendary Magicians merely choose not to say anything, or were they still unable to remember how?

* According to [[TeamPet Mandora Boy]], most people who hear his cry upon pulling him out die. Does he know this from personal experience?

* Ifrit and Cyclops died because they screwed around, Gorgon couldn't be trusted, Drake was uncontrollable, Toad was an idiot, Wyvern was a hot head, and Titan was a softie. If not for Sphinx getting [[WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove too curious about this thing called courage]], N Ma would have been left with the most powerful and reliable of the Hades Gods. In other words, the Dark Precepts resulting in most of his gods getting killed wasn't a bug, it was a feature.

** Also, consider how [[spoiler: Miyuki disappeared as opposed to actually dying or exploding. GenreSavvy Toku fans would know that most of the time, the one sure way to make sure someone's dead is if they blew up or if they were shown to have died.]]

* [[ElegantGothicLolita Nai and Mare's]] suddenly ability to bring others BackFromTheDead seems like a big old {{AssPull}}. I mean, if they had a power like that for the whole series, why didn't they use it.......[[ChekovsGun Wait a minute!!!]] Then you realize three things:

** (1) These have been using it all series, only on [[{{Immortality}} Themselves.]] This one is obvious since they said as much.

** (3) And this is the most important one; when you really think about it, what they did is just a more benevolent, no catch, toned down version of what Vampires do all the time, which when you leave out the all the drawbacks, is bringing someone back to life.

Or to be more exact, sharing immortality with others.

* The above FridgeBrilliance, combined with my latest rewatch of the series, led me to realize how it was that Smoky survived his HeroicSacrifice in Stage 48; we were told back in Stage 26 that Smoky was bound to the [=MagiLamp=] until he'd performed enough good deeds to lift the curse on him. And during the WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue, we see Smoky walking around independent of the [=MagiLamp=]. The conclusion is simple enough; Smoky's act of TakingTheBullet for Urara against Dagon was the last good deed needed to lift the curse, and so only the [=MagiLamp=] was destroyed. Thus, we can now establish that there were no ass pulls in the final episode. Hot damn!
