* When Zedd was introduced, it was said that he'd been off ruling 'darker places of the galaxy', so why didn't they flee to them when the Machine Empire attacked? The Machine Empire had explicitly been on a universe conquering rampage since breaking from the United Alliance of Evil: where better to start than the pre-conquered areas who's EvilOverlord is tied up dealing with a bunch of teenagers on a distant planet?

* The Tengas being able to squeak out a victory on the cogs makes sense when you remember one thing: Rita and Zedd have spent the time since they ran off with Master Vile, who upgraded the Tengas back in season 3.
* Rita and Zedd not fearing the Machine Empire anymore makes a lot more sense when you remember Rita got an upgraded staff that let her create a monster more powerful than most of the Empire's. They don't fear Mondo anymore because Rita's now as strong if not ''stronger'' than he is.

** But at least the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers regain their powers for ''Series/PowerRangersSuperMegaforce'' "Legendary Battle".

* 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.

** It also foreshadows the end of ''Series/PowerRangersInSpace'', which is also the GrandFinale of the Zordon Era.

*** 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.

*** 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.
