*** There actually WAS one line given as to why Billy was frequently missing during the Gold Ranger build up: He was building new vehicles for the team. That were never used or shown, or even mentioned after that line. The line was given by Old Billy.

* It took me a while to understand Tommy's Tearjerker narration at the beginning of the first episode: "Little did we know how soon our world as we knew it would come crashing down. And our lives as Power Rangers were about to an end.", when in the next episode, they got new Zeo powers to fight King Mondo. I now realize that Tommy was right: Their world (the Command Centre, which like a second home to them) ''did'' come crashing down (via implosion device), and their lives as ''Mighty Morphin'' Power Rangers ''did'' come to an end (the Zeo Crystal gave them new powers instead of restoring their old powers). Even though they got a new power base and stronger powers, they are going to miss their old ones greatly.

*** The last sentence here makes perfect sense: Billy has seen the Power Coins and Ninja Coins destroyed and suffered with his teammates to get replacement powers. Billy was GenreSavvy enough to consider that the Zeo Powers could suffer the same fate.

* "Mondo's Last Stand" featured Rocky displaying an inferiority complex. Whilst it never got brought up again in ''Zeo'', this would eventually lead to Rocky's GameBreakingInjury in ''[[Series/PowerRangersTurbo Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie]]''.

** Unfortunately, Zedd and Rita caught up with them, and in an even more prominent form of Fridge Brilliance, it makes sense why Zordon's Wave turned Goldar to sand when he wasn't destroyed by the Zeo Crystal's forcefield. It's because when Zedd and Rita found Goldar and Rito, Zedd agreed to restore Goldar's memory, wings and sword, on the condition that Goldar never do anything good again. So, in making this agreement, Goldar literally stripped himself of any remaining good that was in his system, which is why when Zordon's Wave hit, there was nothing to save.

* There wasn't really a sufficient explanation for Billy's mysterious absences in some episodes (before the character officially left). However, there is a very popular fan theory which posits that during those mysterious absences, he was actually developing the Turbo powers, weapons, morphers, and Zords.
** As to why the Turbo powers didn't really match up to the superiority of the Zeo Crystals -- maybe Billy ran out of time and therefore couldn't finish them or fix them due to his rapid ageing and having no choice but to go to Aquitar to get treatment. But again, it seemed like they were more of backups as opposed to true replacements to the Zeo Crystals.

* If one really thinks about it, the Zeo Rangers as described in the series canon are, literally, the most powerful rangers ''of all time''. The Zeo Crystal was an infinitely self-strengthening power source that would never stop growing more potent. The Zeo Ranger arsenal of weapons and zords was growing more complex and varied with every major episode. But this leads to a serious question that was never answered in any way. Why did they stop using the Zeo powers and move to the Turbo powers? Tommy at the least clearly retains the Red Zeonizer all the way up to Forever Red and it's unlikely he got rid of it afterword, unless that was the base he used to develop the Dino Gems. But that also begs the question of "Why mess with the Zeo Crystal and turn it into something clearly less powerful?" The only answer that logically comes to mind is that the Zeo Crystal is not as much of a penalty free power source as first believed. As we see with season team-ups and was Lampshaded in ''Series/PowerRangersRPM'', morphing tends to cause explosions. [[EarthShatteringKaboom Imagine what Zeo morphing would eventually do]]. That's right, the Zeo powers were pocket supernovas waiting to happen.

* Tommy's sudden boost in intelligence and memory skills (as seen In [[Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder Dino Thunder]]) may be due to Prince Gasket messing around with Tommy's brain in "King for a Day."

to:

* Prince Gasket attempts to brainwash Tommy into becoming the ruler of the Machine Empire in "King for a Day". In the episode immediately following it, "A Brief Mystery of Time", side effects from the brainwashing allows Tommy to recognize that the exact same day is looping repeatedly. It may be possible that Tommy's sudden boost in intelligence and memory skills (as seen In in [[Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder Dino Thunder]]) may be are also due to Prince Gasket messing around with Tommy's brain in "King for a Day."these side effects.

** One thing to consider: It's stated that the morphing grid gets its overall power from the balance between good and evil. Perhaps they had to stop using the Zeo powers or risk destabilizing the whole morphing grid due to a shift in the balance.
This also explains why each season of rangers stops being rangers when their evil bad guys get defeated, and when the monsters get bigger and badder, so do the rangers. A subtle, justified example of Mid-season upgrades, available for every season ever.
