* Why is it that Sentai has to make their werewolf-themed monsters [[FetishFuel so damned hot]]? First was Zen-Aku from ''Wild Force'', then there was Jiro/Garuru from ''Series/KamenRiderKiva'', and now I just got a glimpse of R.J.'s werewolf form in ''Jungle Fury''. Yes, I know they're more or less evil in this form, [[DracoInLeatherPants but damn...*drools*]] Are they just embracing the formula of wolf = evil = sexy, or are they trying to break the stereotype that werewolves are ugly flesh-eating monsters?

* This is more about Super Sentai and the UsefulNotes/FurryFandom / FetishFuel it's spawned during it's run, but...why does everyone seem to think Doggie Kruger's place is under heavy BDSM training? Virtually every single fanfic, fan picture, and h-doujin I've seen of the guy has him being tied up, gagged, and raped up the ass with various large, phallic objects by a variety of (usually male) characters. For a while, I didn't complain (and I still don't, to a point; he ''is'' a hunk, after all), but...I've started finding h-doujins where he's put in this position by the ''female'' characters, specifically ''Swan-san'', the one character in ''Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger'' with a canonical "flirt and tease" relationship of the most innocent kind. That really disturbs me, and further emphasizes my confusion over why everyone finds him being put in that position so hot.

*** Dino Charge: Sledge is only after the energems. If the rangers transform using the energems, then all Sledge has to do is capture one of them, and he gets an energem; if they transform using one of the Dino Chargers, then they'll run out of juice eventually. Not to mention that Sledge has an army of monsters on his ship, so if the Rangers landed, he could just let some of them free and cause a riot, holding the rangers off from advancing until he found a way to deal with them.

to:

*** Megaforce: For the first season, as far as the Rangers knew, there was no single base that the monsters were using. In the second season, they actually ''do'' take the fight to the Armada, but even though they destroy a large amount of the Armada's forces, the Armada doesn't retreat.
*** Dino Charge: Sledge is only after the energems, and the rangers are more focused on gathering them as opposed to stopping him, since even if they were able to deal with him before finding the other energems, they'd still have to get the rest of the energems. If the rangers transform using the energems, then all Sledge has to do is capture one of them, and he gets an energem; if they transform using one of the Dino Chargers, then they'll run out of juice eventually. Not to mention that Sledge has an army of monsters on his ship, so if the Rangers landed, landed his ship by force, he could just let some of them free and cause a riot, holding the rangers off from advancing until he found a way to deal with them. Even if the Rangers had been able to isolate Sledge from his ship, as we saw in the season, he was strong enough to hold his own against them.

* Is there any particular reason why Power Rangers shows never get their own mooks anymore? Z-Putties, Tenga Warriors, Piranhatrons, Quantrons, Stingwingers, Tyrannodrones...all original to Power Rangers. But it's just been Sentai mooks since then.
* Why are the rules enforced by Zordon still in place after his death? Or, in the case of RPM and Dino Charge, in alternate universes where there is no Zordon? The only one that seems to be occassionally broken is the "don't reveal your identity to anyone" rule. Why don't the Rangers stomp on the regular-sized monsters with their Zords (or do anything else to save the Earth that would be considered "escalating the fight")? Why don't they use their powers to fight regular crime (something the Zordon era Rangers never did implicitly because of the whole "no using your powers for personal gain")? Most of the Rangers teams post-In Space never knew Zordon or his rules, but still follow them.

** Rita was, apparently, a human being or at least half human--just because her father was an alien doesn't mean her mother was, since Andros said in ''In Space'' that humans evolved on more than one planet at a time (or, depending on how to interpret it, evolved elsewhere and colonized Earth). Either way, Rita was most likely human or at least half. Zedd used to be some kind of humanoid but was disfigured by the Zeo Crystal defense shield, for all we know he was whatever Andros' race was called. Maybe even Edenoian. Either way, when his evil was taken away by the Z-wave he returned to his original state, not so much "turned human" as "healed of his injuries". Divatox we know was some kind of human, as she was likely Dimitria's sister and kidnapped from her home as a girl and raised by the United Alliance of Evil like Astronima (apparently Dark Spectre's army did that a lot, kind of like Hitler's plans to take Aryan children from conquered nations and give them to Nazi families during WWII). The rest were all either machines, monsters or aliens and therefore died. Rita no doubt still retained her magical powers and became a GOOD witch instead of an evil one, hence Magic Mother.
*** [[FantasticRacism Oh, yes, let's kill the aliens because they're not human...]]
*** More precisely, [[NeverSayDie we can get away with killing off the nonhumans, but the censors will ask questions if we kill off characters that look human]].
* If the Power Rangers knew where the bad guys were stationed (and most of the teams did seem to learn, some time or later), then why do they wait until the baddies are ''on the brink of total victory'' to finally stop them? Why don't they storm the baddies' headquarters and take them out before then?
** Because that would be a short series? Besides, Rule 4 or so of the MMPR rules (one of the lesser known ones) was "use your powers to defend, never attack", so it's possibly a heroes code thing which stuck.

*** Jungle Fury: They know where Dai Shi's set up camp, but not only do they have the issue of hurting an innocent possessed by him, but usually he has a standing army along with powerful generals present that would wipe the ranges out if they attacked too soon. Also, due to them still being learners, they didn't have the skill to make their move yet.

* That's another thing I don't get: supposedly, the powers of every Ranger team has some ties to the mysterious "Morphing Grid" introduced in the first series, but how is that possible? I know ''SPD'' {{Handwave}}d their connection as having been developed from past Ranger morphing technology, but other than that, none of the powers from around ''[=PRiS=]'' to then were acknowledged on-screen as having the connection (with some, like with ''Lightspeed Rescue'', being completely ''man-made''). Was the Morphing Grid thing just a huge retcon to keep all the series in continuity?
** The local equivalent of midiclorians? :) Seriously, a connection the Morphin Grid is required to morph. That simple, retcon or not. How Miss Fairweather managed to get a functional grid connection or six going is admittedly a mystery, though to be fair she IS the Tech Genius.
** I'm not too familiar with this plot point, but it isn't much of a stretch of the imagination that the inventors of technology-based morphs simply invented devices that tap into the Morphing Grid (after all, someone had to invent the original tech), or devices that only appear to function similar to the other Rangers but don't actually use the Morphing Grid.
** I think it's like the Speed Force in Franchise/TheDCU. It's the source of power for all heroes who ''morph'' from one form to another, and individual teams' origins are simply how they got access to it.

*** Wrong; the ''Operation Overdrive'' episode "Once a Ranger" confirmed that ''every'' generation of Ranger, both past, present, and future, had their power tied directly into the Morphing Grid, regardless of their supposed source; ''OO'' had the Rangers' powers ''man-made'', exactly like those in ''Lightspeed Rescue'', and yet when Rita's and Zedd's son ([[{{Squick}} ...eewww]]) destroyed the Morphing Grid, he did it with the intention of preventing ''all'' Rangers from morphing ''forever'', and the Overdrive Rangers weren't able to morph, as a result. Hell, despite the "Mother of all Good Magic" being ''Rita Repulsa'', the ''Mystic Force'' Rangers used ''magic'' to morph and call their Zords, and they're ''still'' considered to be tying into the Morphing Grid when doing so. So yes, the intent is pretty much that the Grid is like the Speed Force, with all Rangers getting their powers to morph from there, regardless of the supposed "source". Which brings up another question: Does this mean that the Masked Rider got ''his'' powers from the Morphing Grid, too?

*** Thing is, considering that we're shown that the morphing sequences happen in the Grid, that means that by using the Zeo Crystals, they are in a way using their power- by hooking them up to a morpher, the Zeo power is routed through the grid, which converts it from raw magical energy into armor, weapons, and physical enhancements usable by humans. It's not like two batteries, but like a DC power source and an AC converter. The original morphers used a separate power source routed through the grid, too- the Power Coins, if you'll recall.

*** Also, Thrax's attack only severed the connection to the Morphing Grid and only encompassed Earth and thus left at least 18 rangers with their power intact, even if he intended to stop all rangers forever he failed miserably even before Sentinel Knight intervened.

*** My take on the Morphing Grid is that it's basically a giant hammerspace if you will, where all the ranger gear is stored, from suits to weapons. Morphers link to the grid to allow rangers to access their gear and different morphers use different power sources to make this possible. We've seen more than a few ranger powers that are very clearly powered by different sources, such as the power coins, the dino gems, the animal crystals, the quasar sabres, etc. If I may use an analogy here, think of the Morphing Grid as a place you want to go. The Morpher is the car you use to get there and the power source, such as the Zeo Crystal, is the fuel that makes the car run.
*** It seems my theory was more or less right. In RPM, Dr K talks about the discovery of an electric energy field that when maniplulated, led to the creation of the RPM ranger gear. Presumably this energy field is the morphing grid. And it's clear that the grid is not the power ''source'', because this episode shows that the RPM rangers have a fairly limited amount of energy, likely due to a relatively primitive power source.
*** If you watch all of the Zordon series, and what Dr. K said in ''RPM'', it becomes fairly obvious: the Morphing Grid is what K called a "bioenergy field", apparently it is, as Zedd said, created by living beings--specifically by the duality of good beings and evil ones. All morphers, and yeah that'd probably include Masked Rider, drew energy from the grid in the same way that your house draws energy from a power grid: the Zeo Crystal lets you morph into a Zeo Ranger, the RPM Morpher lets you become an RPM Ranger, whatever the hell Dex uses to activate his Ectophase lets him become a Masked Rider...but they all draw on the same, all-pervasive energy source. Just like your computer, your TV and your light bulbs all do completely, wildly different things with wildly different technologies of all types...but they all draw energy from some coal plat somewhere. Sor the Morphing Grid is exactly what it sounds like, a ''power grid'' that fuels whatever machine you hook up to it. Really the Zeo Crystals are a perfect example--the ''Zeo Power'' itself grows stronger, but accessing it means morphing, and thus the Morphing Grid. The weapons, armor, Zords become stronger but without the Grid they're useless...just like your computer is more powerful than a calculator but without a wall socket to plug it in it's worthless. TL;DR--the Morphing Grid is just what it sounds like, a universal power grid that lets you morph. Hence they specify the Zeo Powers, Turbo Powers, RPM Powers, Ectophase et al instead of just saying "Morphing Grid Powers", the same way you would specify a computer, TV and light bulb instead of just saying "the power grid".

*** Do keep in mind that the ending of Mystic Force was written/filmed around the time Machiko Soga, the actress who played both Rita and the Mystic Mother in the Franchise/SuperSentai source footage, died. She was written to be Rita as a sort of combination of ActorAllusion, MythologyGag, {{Fanservice}} and a ShoutOut, as a memorial to the actress. I'd say MST3KMantra, but this is a headscratcher, so...
*** Rita was turned into a good person, but retained her powers, so she simply turned them to good. Its not that complicated. Just like Tommy turned the Green Ranger powers to good when he got them. Magic in Power Rangers is just another tool, it can be used by anyone with magical ability, and how it's used varies depending on their own alignment. Remember that sorcerer in ''Mystic Force'' who was good but became evil, or the A-Squad rangers? Rita/Mystic Mother is that but in reverse. But for all that I really can't imagine where Zedd went.

*** Lack of footage killed him. There is a rumour that the Bloom of Doom (a Zyu2 monster) had a zord fight instead of being blown up by the Power Cannon, and Lokar would have appeared to increase the monster's power - however, it was never shown.

Forgoing the obvious "why does the monster always attack Angel Grove" and "how is Angel Grove rebuilt every week" one that bugs me is simply "why does anyone even live in Angel Grove any more?" I mean, you can only love a town so much...after a few weeks of getting stepped on, laser blasted, or killed by friendly fire when the monster blows up, Angel Grove should be a ghost town. (most of the later series avoid this by having it take place on a space station, underwater colony, etc, where there isn't anywhere else to go)

*** What kind of sadist would draft people into saving the world and not let them have credit for it? Quite honestly, I'm glad Zordon died, he was just plain mean to the innocent rangers. In fact, I would've just said "screw you" and then stolen my Power Coin after so many times of not getting my richly deserved rewards.

*** Answered in ''Ninja Storm''. Because the public goes BERSERK when you use your powers for personal fame and fortune, resulting in civilians and the media being put at risk as they attempt to get close to a public-figure ranger. This is even seen in MMPR et al during Season 2 and continuing with Bulk and Skull being hurt, captured and even turned into chimps just for trying to find out who the rangers are.
** Well besides the fact that it was one of Zordon's rules, Technically only the Mighty Morphers, the Zeos, the Turbos, and the Spacers were forced to follow those rules. In Galaxy and beyond are mostly idiots because they didn't need to follow Zordon's rules. However, there were obvious exceptions. The Lightspeed Rescue Rangers and the SPD rangers were public servants and therefore a secret identity was null and void. Chances are this would apply to the Time Force Rangers in their original time period. As for the Operation Overdrive Rangers who's identities were also public... uh.... Since they're more so Treasure Hunters than they are public servants, I have no excuse for this one. I'm gonna assume that they were the only smart ones
** I can understand the whole "don't want to become infected with pride by the celebrity status" explanation as a reason for keeping identities secret (and keep in mind that in "In Space" the villains really didn't know their identities so there was a very good reason for keeping their identities secret) but what about when the song and dance of having to keep their identities secret leads to a huge tactical disadvantage in saving the world? In one episode Rita uses her knowledge of the rangers' identities to her advantage when she frames them at school so they would be stuck in detention while she sent her monsters to destroy the world. Luckily for them the principal had to leave and Bulk and Skull were morons who Zack could trick very easily but what if the principal stayed the entire time? Would they have simply let the world be destroyed by the ranger clones while they were stuck in detention? Or would they have said "screw the secret identity thing, Earth needs us now!" and morphed in front of everyone?
*** Considering that nothing happens to the rangers' powers when they reveal their identities to Rocky, Adam, and Aisha (out of necessity in order to save Billy), it seems like the rules have an exception for things like that.

to:

*** Answered in ''Ninja Storm''. Because the public goes BERSERK when you use your powers for personal fame and fortune, resulting in civilians and the media being put at risk as they attempt to get close to a public-figure ranger. This is even seen in MMPR et al during Season 2 and continuing with Bulk and Skull being hurt, captured and even turned into chimps just for trying to find out who the rangers Rangers are.
** Well besides the fact that it was one of Zordon's rules, Technically only the Mighty Morphers, the Zeos, the Turbos, and the Spacers were forced to follow those rules. In Galaxy and beyond are mostly idiots because they didn't need to follow Zordon's rules. However, there were obvious exceptions. The Lightspeed Rescue Rangers and the SPD rangers Rangers were public servants and therefore a secret identity was null and void. Chances are this would apply to the Time Force Rangers in their original time period. As for the Operation Overdrive Rangers who's whose identities were also public... uh.... Since they're more so Treasure Hunters than they are public servants, I have no excuse for this one. I'm gonna assume that they were the only smart ones
** I can understand the whole "don't want to become infected with pride by the celebrity status" explanation as a reason for keeping identities secret (and keep in mind that in "In Space" the villains really didn't know their identities so there was a very good reason for keeping their identities secret) but what about when the song and dance of having to keep their identities secret leads to a huge tactical disadvantage in saving the world? In one episode Rita uses her knowledge of the rangers' Rangers' identities to her advantage when she frames them at school so they would be stuck in detention while she sent her monsters to destroy the world. Luckily for them the principal had to leave and Bulk and Skull were morons who Zack could trick very easily but what if the principal stayed the entire time? Would they have simply let the world be destroyed by the ranger clones while they were stuck in detention? Or would they have said "screw the secret identity thing, Earth needs us now!" and morphed in front of everyone?

** No one mentioned the fact that they wouldn't just become celebrities, they'd be targets to all sorts of greed and general meddling. Knowing that those five/six kids are the superheroes full of alien weaponry that show up from out of nowhere to save the city every other day would definitely draw attention from the government and other people interested in studying/stealing their powers. For example, in ''Time Force'' Wes's dad tries to lure the rangers from the future into the Silver Guardians, who, at that point, only protected those who paid for them.

* This is a question about the toy line, not necessarily the TV series: why is it that the ''Power Rangers Jungle Fury'' toys don't have a summary of the show on the packaging? Every single ''Power Ranger'' line up 'til then has had at least a little blurb explaining in brief what was going on with the figures and the zords and whatnot, but ''Jungle Fury'' doesn't. Considering that the toys invariably come out some months ''before'' the show, wouldn't it be a bit counterproductive to drop the blurb from the packaging? It's like... Midway not providing bios for the characters in ''Mortal Kombat: Armageddon''; how can you get ''into'' a show or a game or whatnot and become a loyal fan if your first exposure to it doesn't have a summary of what's going to happen to get you hooked?

** Also, Bandai was extremely cheap when it came to the Disney-era Power Rangers. Notice that they only barely brought over the actual Megazord toys from Japan after SPD. The main Megazords from Operation Overdrive, Jungle Fury and RPM were inferior redesigns, with the former upsized and latter two downsized. (The Deluxe Jungle Pride and Jungle Fury Megazords did make it over relatively unscathed.)

** Also consider that now you've just made yourself an enemy of both the Power Rangers (and their allies) and the United Alliance of Evil, who will, without fail, try to kill you. So basically its about the stupidest possible option when the other ("follow the goddamn rules") would at worst ''bother you'' a little.

*** Why would the United Alliance of Evil treat you as an enemy? They are tv evil who instead of wondering if you had chronic backstabbing sydrome would congratulate you on your attempt. Heck I seem to remember at least once case where Rita betrayed Zedd and instead of stuffing her back in the trash finally gave her some respect.

*** I assumed that the individual zords are probably faster than a fully combined Megazord. After all, animals on four legs, birds, cars and jets tend to move faster than a humanoid on two legs. So they summon them individually so they'll arrive on the scene faster rather tbe stuck waiting for the Megazord to stroll over.

** See it this way, there is ''no'' guarantee that there will be just one MonsterOfTheWeek, the five rangers will be present in time to fight or it will play fair. it's not for sure that they will need their zords in just one place at the same time. having each ranger a Zord for themselves that combine into a stronger megazord, let's them be prepared for more than ''one'' scenario. Also, it easier to storage that way. in some cases, like RPM, it's because they have more than one combination.

*** Simple: the Riders have cooler transformation sequences and tend to stay solo, attacking each other almost twice as much as they team up to face off against some third party evil. The Rangers have the HumongousMecha and work as a team.

** There is still a fairly big difference between the Kamen Rider suits and the MMPR movie suits. Kamen Rider suits (not trying to raise any blood pressure here) generally look like large chucks of fiberglass shells placed around the body, it looks like armor but doesn't exactly have a cinematic quality to them. The MMPR movie suits still had a "spandex" look to them but had additional armor-like pieces interwoven so they looked somewhat protective. As mentioned those suits looked fantastic but were rather fragile and exceptionally heavy (exact numbers vary, but just for reference the basic suit was about 25 lbs. and the White Ranger suit was about 40 lbs. because of the chest shield).

*** No, he didn't; the Super Zeo Gems turned up much later. They didn't come with the staff, they weren't on Pyramidas and Trey didn't hand them over before he left for Triforia, so they can't have been with him at the time or on the ship. He only gave the rangers the Gems when he'd returned to Triforia, ergo the most likely explanation is that the Gems had been on Triforia until then. As to the power source for the Gold Ranger's Power, it must be the Staff, which is fair; it's basically his version of a Zeoniser.

** The Carranger counterpart was the VRV Master and showed up in like 3 episodes. He wasn't considered a Ranger in that series but had a somewhat Ranger-like appearance so Turbo used him as the SixthRanger. They never really explained him in either Turbo or in Space but in some way his presense did help to establish the larger "intergalactic" Ranger community that became important for in Space.

*** So just have the animal zords do all the work because the rangers are too lazy? They probably have a limited amount of energy and need to rest between battles. Summoning them ''every'' time a putty/cog/pirhanatron etc shows up would probably begin to stray into animal cruelty.

** It wouldn't work. There is nothing in any episodes that suggest individual monsters are in anyway weaker than individual rangers. In fact given that most of them are winning four, five and six on one fights they are probably superior physically. Rangers have on multiple occasions been shown leaping from the ground into their zords and unless the zords were keyed to "Ranger" and that's why Green Ranger was able to get into the Megazord there doesn't seem to be any reason why the regular monsters couldn't do that. And inversely they probably don't usually waste a lot of time trying to squash the rangers because as hilarious as it would be to watch them try rangers are pretty quick.
** WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic addressed this in his review of the ''Turbo'' movie - basically, if they called in the Megazord before the monster was giant-sized, when the monster grew giant-sized, it would be too powerful to be defeated with the Megazord (one can assume that the same is true for ''Sentai'' series, since excluding monsters that don't grow giant-size, usually it's only the generic enemy mecha that get defeated without the use of a zord). The only case where this wasn't an issue was the aforementioned example in ''Turbo'' involving the Megazord's shadow - in that case, they could've used anything to block the light source, but it was a lot easier to summon the Megazord then, oh say, take a skyscraper out of the ground and block the sunlight from hitting the monster.
* Why did Adam think Alpha 6 would know how to repair the Morphing Grid? As far as we know Alpha has created exactly 0 rangers on the other hand Ninjor created 17 rangers. Ninjor created the 6 Dino Power Coins, the 6 Ninja Power Coins, and gave the Alien Rangers their Battle Borgs and thus probably created their powers as well. 6+6+5 is 17.
** In point of fact, its outright states that Zordon adapted his Power Ranger tech from Ninjor's magic coins, and logically the later human-made Morphers were based on Zordon's designs, so its actually rather likely Ninjor directly or indirectly created lal of the rangers or led to their creation with the exception of the Zeo Rangers, Galaxy Rangers and Wild Force. ''Maybe'' Jungle Fury, since it was never clear if those powers were magical spirits or technology. So it's more like "a shitload" instead of 17.
** Alpha 6 may not have created any rangers,but thats exactly what the Alpha robots can do.Furthermore Alpha 6 did work in the command center for a while.Zordon wouldn't leave the rangers without have a compatent replacement should their be problems with the morphing grid.

** Obviously not official canon, but in a kid's magazine there was the explanation that if they used ten monsters or so, the Rangers would just inevitably gain some new weapons or zords that would be more than capable of taking out ten monsters at once. Obviously a bit of lampshading at the fact that the rangers always seem to get new weapons ''just'' when they really need them.
*** Might not be lampshading, but an aspect of the Morphing Grid. If its created by the struggle between Zedd and Zordon, or presumably, whomever the good guy and bad guy are this year, then it logically follows that if one side gets stronger without bothering to upset the balance beforehand by eliminating the other side's source, something "coincidental" will happen to ensure that power levels remain equal.

*** On several occasions they send a shitton of monsters at once. But usually by this time the rangers are too powerful for that. For example during Rita and Zedd's wedding they sent a bunch of ''season one'' monsters...after the Rangers had upgraded to more powerful Zords. It wasn't pretty. Put another way, it would be like sending a million WWI Biplanes to fight one F-22 Raptor...the best you can hope for is that he runs out of bullets and missiles.

*** OVERRULED! The Power Coins, Rita and Zedd destroyed, were the Ninja Power Coins, not the Dino Power Coins. Furthermore, the Tyrannosaurus Power Coin that was being used by Rocky durring the aforementioned destruction of the Thunder Zords was a duplicate of Jason's and thus it is likely Jason's coin had already been disconnected from the Red Dragon Zord and was thus unaffected by its destruction (thereby explaining why Jason didn't have any trouble sustaining his morph).

*** Secondly this issue of how Jason could morph in Forever Red needs a bigger deconstruction, and a focus of two key events in Power Ranger history: Tommy losing his green ranger powers in the Green Candle, and Zordon's sacrifice at the end of In Space. During the power ''transfer'' we have Jason, Trini and Zack pass their powers onto Rocky, Adam and Aisha. The reason the former are still morphed is because that's what little energy they have left during their decreasing morphed state. It's the same reason Tommy remained in his green ranger outfit for a little while, even though he had passed his coin and power onto Jason at the end of The Green Candle. Tommy's shield being worn by Jason as the red ranger was basically another way or saying there's another green ranger in the chamber at the same time, until what morphed energy Tommy had left eventually perished (this essentially happens to all MMPR rangers every time they're morphed, but they always have their powers to remorph back every time). The power transfer was the same thing, only threefold. We don't see Jason perish in his morphed yet unrechargable state during the transfer because him, Zack and Trini are teleported out prior (actor issues with the cast not being present, sure I know, but it has to be looked at within the fictional universe).
*** So how does Tommy morph back into the green ranger, even though he had already transferred the power to Jason before? Well, Tommy has the dragon coin at least, he just needed a large boost of energy to get it going. This energy was provided by Zordon, who powered the coin and allowed the green ranger form to be activated again. Unfortunately it was only a temporary restoration, and the green ranger power inevitably failed due to just being essentially a ''half-assed'' version of the green ranger before. The show establishes this as a fact. The ''speculation'' however is that at the end of In Space, when Zordon sacrifices himself, he spreads his energy out through the universe or galaxy to destroy all evil, [[FridgeLogic the same energy he used to charge Tommy's coin]]. Ergo, it would stand to reason that this same energy would ''recharge'' empty power coins the same way it did Tommy's dragon coin. If the theory pans out, Jason had an empty power coin when the power was transferred to Rocky's. Rocky's coin was damaged and unusable (like Adam's was in "Always A Chance"), but Jason's was temporarly recharged like Tommy was when he returned as the green ranger. Likely Zack and Trini's are restored too.
