* Fans are complaining about not skipping ''Goseiger'' and going directly into ''Gokaiger''. While it might not be exactly 20 years in-universe, it's hard to just reference how many years Power Rangers has existed because no true time line has ever been established. However, Power Rangers Gokaiger can say they are the 20th different Power Rangers team. How do I get 20? 1 - MMPR with Jason, Trini and Zach 2- MMPR with Rocky, Aisha and Adam, 3 - Alien Rangers, 4 - Zeo, 5- Turbo, 6- Space, 7 - Galaxy, 8 - Lightspeed Rescue, 9 - Time Force, 10 - Wild Force, 11 - Ninja Storm, 12 - Dino Thunder, 13 - SPD, 14 - Mystic Force, 15 - Overdrive, 16 - Jungle Fury, 17 - RPM, 18 - Samurai, 19 - [[spoiler: Megaforce]] (Power Rangers Goseiger) and 20 - Power Rangers Gokaiger.

** Unfortunately, the Alien Rangers are considered 3.5th so the ordering goes this way instead: MMPR (1993, 1st), MMPR II (1994, 2nd), MMPR III (1995, 3rd), MMAR (1995-1996, 3.5th), Zeo (1996, 4th), Turbo (1997, 5th), In Space (1998, 6th), Lost Galaxy (1999, 7th), Lightspeed Rescue (2000, 8th), Time Force (2001, 9th), Wild Force (2002, 10th), Ninja Storm (2003, 11th), Dino Thunder (2004, 12th), S.P.D. (2005, 13th), Mystic Force (2006, 14th), Operation Overdrive (2007, 15th), Jungle Fury (2008, 16th), RPM (2009, 17th), Samurai (2011, 18th), Super Samurai (2012, 19th), Megaforce (2013, 20th), Super Megaforce (2014, 21st), Dino Charge (2015, 22nd), Dino Super Charge (2016, 23rd), Ninja Steel (2017, 24th).



*** There is also an indeterminate time between ''In Space'' and ''Lost Galaxy''. The later was supposed to take place 'in the not to distant future'. Likely, a few years passed between the two seasons, given the existence of Terra Venture, which was more advanced than technology today and certainly could not have been built in the few months between the seasons. Add to that the indeterminate time between ''Wild Force'' and ''Ninja Storm'', and the few years that seem to pass before ''Dino Thunder'' (enough needed for Tommy to get a doctorate in paleontology and begin research that leads to Dino Thunder), and you get enough time to explain Spike's age.

*** The problem, however, is that Shiba Takeru is adopted and officially given the title as the 19th Head of the Shiba Clan which in turn made his vassals become the 19th vassals instead of 18th vassals so the acknowledgment does not really work.

* Scott/RPM Red says he can't demorph because he isn't sure if he can breath the atmosphere. Now flashback to the first 5 minutes of ''RPM'' where Dillon is in a full gas-mask and screens the area for toxicity before getting a clean bill and removing his helmet...
** That still doesn't explain much, since the Rangers he's talking to aren't even morphed in the scene. Your argument is invalid!
*** Actually, it does. Just because it isn't toxic TO THEM doesn't mean it wouldn't be toxic to HIM. Here is a perfect example... do you know why a cloned dinosaur could never survive in today's world? Because the air is different. Oxygen levels are lower, more pollutants... they'd choke to death. Same here.

* The new transformation for the Rangers includes an undersuit and mask materializing first which is covered by a mask. While many have written this off as 'ninja suits', Samurai armor often included a face mask to hold the helmet to the head, as well as having a neck covering for additional protection. While less fancy than most, some such masks do resemble the ones the Samurai Rangers have.

** Given that the recut of the original was given poor time slots by Disney and almost no promotion its doubtful many young kids saw it. The callbacks were no doubt specifically for capatalizing on FirstInstallmentWins with the older audience and NostalgiaFilter.

* Mia mentioning that "every girl wants to get married" becomes less cliched and more MediumAwareness if you were able to catch ''the two actress' names on the wedding list'' (see FreezeFrameBonus).
* The "long lost Tigerzord" line in "I've Got a Spell on Blue" takes on new meaning if you're familiar with the original Tigerzord, which got stiffed after the reversioning of MMPR never covered the second season.
* The kanji used by the Rangers are refered to as Symbols of Power and the rangers shout 'Symbol Power' when they use it. While this may seem like a case of downplaying their Japanese nature, the power channeled through them in Shinkenger was called mojikara, which roughly translated means 'Word Power'. Taken in that context, it makes a lot more sense.
* Why does it make a little more sense for Mike to have the Beetle Zord? Because as [[http://animals.jrank.org/pages/2459/Beetles-Weevils-Coleoptera-HABITAT.html this]] article points out, beetles can hide in soil or bark, or under wood; in other words, the type of things you'd find in a ''forest.''
** Likewise for White Tigerzord. The first user of that type of Zord became a Red Ranger later on.
** The Blue Ranger one is mostly obvious, however, his Dragon FoldingZord is not. His element is Water, but why a Dragon? Because the "dragon" of the "seas" happens to be a Leviathan. Notably, just like his zord, they've got a very long body. It also makes more sense when one remembers that dragons are commonly associated with water in Japanese folklore.

* In the current SuperSentai season ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger'', which is a MilestoneCelebration of the past seasons, the Rangers can use the Lion Wildzord from ''Series/PowerRangersWildForce'''s Super Sentai original ''HyakujuuSentaiGaoranger'' and they can use to form they own version of the Megazord from Samurai's Super Sentai counterpart ''SamuraiSentaiShinkenger''. This is ironic since the Red Ranger and user of the Lion Wildzord in ''Wild Force'' appears on the show as Deker.

** Speaking of which, the game looks like ''Tekken'' primarily because of the bear character - which Mike was battling. Gee, d'you think ''controlling'' the bear character [[BusmansHoliday would make the whole game feel like work?]][[hottip:*:Cos [[DontExplainTheJoke Mike drives the Bear FoldingZord,]] geddit?]]

** Spike was conceived somewhere between Zeo and In Space, Skull then started getting more serious about getting jobs with good pay because of it, when he got left behind by Bulk in Lost Galaxy, Bulk left a note saying how now he had a chance to stay with his son, alongside all of the payment Bulk ever got after knowing Skull was going to have a child. Somewhere between the end of Lost Galaxy and Forever Red, Bulk came back to Earth, and after spending some time with his friend, during wich time he and Skull worked at...a hotel, I think, he decided to learn how to become a good uncle by living by a code of honor, and to help him stay on that path Skull decided to send Spike along with him when he went to Panorama city.

* Deker may have only been half-human, but he was still human. So when [[spoiler: Kevin destroys him, that technically means he's the first Power Ranger we've seen to actually ''kill'' another human being.]]
