** 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.

** 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.

*** Also note that in RPM, the Croc Carrier didn't work at first because its size made it, and I quote: "impossible to power without an independently operating bio-entity aboard." So yeah, unless a zord has a power source capable of allowing it to run unmanned (as the Croc Carrier soon acquired), it draws it's power from a morphed pilot.

** Saban did. Twice. The first was Rangers of Two Worlds, which is looked on relatively favorably, just mainly forgotten as it was made before the regular team ups. The second was Trakeena's Revenge, which had a host of behind the scenes mishaps and is generally considered sub par. The result has basically been that the team up is used to wrap up lingering plot threads from the previous season which either didn't exist or were modified from the Sentai footage (Jinxer's GoGoV counterpart was the team up villain for Timeranger, as opposed to Vypra in the Time Force, etc.), and as such, the Sentai footage doesn't fit the story being told.

* When the White Ranger was first revealed, Zordon stated "His powers have been created by the light of goodness and can never be taken away by the forces of evil." Yeah, okay...and then "Rangers in Reverse" happened. Seriously, Zordon, what the hell happened to that statement? Tommy being reverted to a child isn't much of an excuse; compare Justin in Turbo or even the original White Ranger in Dairanger.
** Well Zordon is over simplifying. I think he specifically meant that Zedd wouldn't be able to make a White Candle in the same way Rita made a Green Candle. Although if you want to get specific, the White Ranger powers that Tommy lost in "Rangers in Reverse" weren't the same ones he received from Zordon. The original White Ranger coin was damaged by the destruction of the Thunderzords, alongside the other Dino Coins. They were still operable, as shown by Adam in "Always a Chance", but the damage made using them risky. The Rangers replaced the Dino Coins with the Ninja Coins, which had identical suits, and ''those'' were the ones rendered useless when time was the turned backward. No-one ever said the White ''Ninja'' powers couldn't be taken away. And besides, the original White Ranger powers seem to be in working order by the time of Super Megaforce, as there's a scene where Tommy uses Saba and a point earlier in the season where Orion morphed into the White Ranger. So really, the original powers were never taken away at all.
* Why does Tommy suddenly get promoted to team leader ahead of Jason in "White Light"? I understand that Zordon's line about Tommy being the new leader was added in post-production to prevent a RookieRedRanger scenario when Rocky replaced Jason, but why do that instead of promoting him when Jason left in "The Power Transfer" instead?

*** In Dino Thunder, we see him facing his other Ranger selves, granting credence to Ellen Brand's theory that Tommy has multiple personality disorder. Of course, by this point, the fans are RunningTheAsylum anyway.
** Well, I'm no psychiatrist but I think you're misunderstanding the situation. At the time, at least, Tommy hadn't been forced to hurt the Rangers per se, Rita had bewitched him so that he had ''wanted'' to. Sure, it would entail some guilt, but it's not like she forced him to knowingly be her slave, he wanted to. Besides, he was immediately forgiven and consoled by the Rangers and got his revenge many times over afterward. Furthermore, according to Wiki/TheOtherWiki, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychological_trauma not everyone experiences the same events as traumatic]], so whilst an experience like that might traumatize one person it might not traumatize another (like Tommy); everyone's different.

*** Simple...Alpha said "Not Teenagers!" to which Zordon was like basically "Yes, Teenagers"...so...Alpha went looking for just that. Teenagers.
** In fairness, in the earlier episodes, Jason was pretty hot headed. When Bulk acted up, Zack usually had to cool Jason down from doing something stupid. He certainly had an attitude to start with, but it seemed to die down. Kim's overbearing and overemotional personality remained though, only really starting to diminish late S2/early S3, when half the squad was transferred and she had to take a more mature lancer role to guide the newbies. Billy ''is'' overbearing and overemotional, just not in the traditional light people think of when they hear the word attitude. But Billy has a strong attitude and interest towards scientific pursuit, and often overreacts with too much emotion when an experiment went wrong, if calculations weren't correct, or if he got a B on a test... it's still an over emotional attitude. Trini though, doesn't fit any category of over emotional or overbearing attitude.
*** I might be barking up the wrong tree, but with media like the movie, and the wild west episode, after the power transfer it seems to be implied to me that the replacements of Rocky, Adam and Aisha were always ''supposed'' to be power rangers above Jason, Zack and Trini. It's just the show is a parallel universe where the former were enrolled in Stone Canyon instead of the latter, who were with Kim and Billy at Angel Grove at the time. Aisha has a more overbearing and overemotional attitude than Trini, maybe she was supposed to be the yellow ranger originally?

But Billy has a strong attitude and interest towards scientific pursuit, and often overreacts with too much emotion when an experiment went wrong, if calculations weren't correct, or if he got a B on a test... it's still an over emotional attitude. Trini though, doesn't fit any category of over emotional or overbearing attitude.
*** I might be barking up the wrong tree, but with media like the movie, and the wild west episode, after the power transfer it seems to be implied to me that the replacements of Rocky, Adam and Aisha were always ''supposed'' to be power rangers Power Rangers above Jason, Zack Zack, and Trini. It's just the show is a parallel universe where the former were enrolled in Stone Canyon instead of the latter, who were with Kim and Billy at Angel Grove at the time. Aisha has a more overbearing and overemotional attitude than Trini, maybe she was supposed to be the yellow ranger Yellow Ranger originally?



* Why is it that whenever one or more of the Rangers starts acting strangely, the others are all "This is weird, why are they not acting themselves?" - does it really never occur to someone that maybe just maybe the grand villains are behind it all? Especially after they've done the same thing multiple times in the past?

*** In the case of ''Power Rangers'', particularly ''[[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Mighty Morphin']]'', it would make them ProperlyParanoid, the big bad is out to get them so why not be paranoid about it.

*** Which leads to the question, why the hell did Adam just... leave him there? Until he expressly needed him for something? Love the guy, but Adam's a jerk. :)
*** It's Alpha 6, the jive talkin' robot from ''Series/PowerRangersTurbo''. Note that when Alpha 6 got rebuilt it had Alpha 5's less annoying personality.
*** A vague sense of the Prime Directive or something of that nature. Just because humanity has made the First Contact and such doesn't mean we're ready to handle the level of tech required for an Alpha class robot- for all we know, he could be reverse-engineered to reveal enough Endenoian tech secrets for mankind to create Masked Riders, or actively manipulate the Morphing Grid the way the Command Center could, and humanity having ANY morphing grid tech is risky enough- I'm surprised no rogue government or terrorist has used it yet for personal gain. Adam just wanted to keep the little guy out of the wrong hands, now that there isn't a Power Chamber or Command Center to protect him. Adam is smart enough to notice that no Ranger HQ lasts more than a year these days, so the idea that no place is safe but in hiding is a logical conclusion.

** Those who we know survived were all the leading villains from their respective seasons. The only true 'Big Bad' to bite it was the clearly inhuman King Mondo, who had to share the position with Rita/Zedd...and a few years later, even he seems to have survived, albeit in inoperative form. Which is kind of strange, considering we ''saw'' him get dusted...

** Well Zordon is is over simplifying. I think he specifically meant that Zedd wouldn't be able to make a White Candle in the same way Rita made a Green Candle. Although if you want to get specific, the White Ranger powers that Tommy lost in "Rangers in Reverse" weren't the same ones he received from Zordon. The original White Ranger coin was damaged by the destruction of the Thunderzords, alongside the other Dino Coins. They were still operable, as shown by Adam in "Always a Chance", but the damage made using them risky. The Rangers replaced the Dino Coins with the Ninja Coins which had identical suits, and ''those'' were the ones rendered useless when time was the turned backwards. No-one ever said the White ''Ninja'' powers couldn't be taken away. And besides, the original White Ranger powers seem to be in working order by the time of Super Megaforce, as there's a scene where Tommy uses Saba and a point earlier in the season where Orion morphed into the White Ranger. So really, the original powers were never taken away at all.

** I believe by this time, Austin, Walter, and Thuy were already on strike. They had stopped turning up for ADR sessions (if you watch "White Light", you can see the Red, Yellow and Black Rangers have very little dialouge when morphed and even then, a lot of it is stock audio) and Saban likely figured it wouldn't be long before they stopped showing up for filming. It's hard to write stories where the team's leader rarely talks or even shows up.
* I'm may be nitpicking,but why does almost every Power Rangers Toys have muscles? Sure, some actors does have muscles, but others don't. Also, all Franchise/SuperSentai toys doesn't have them.

** With regards to the morphing, there is the weak excuse that they looked around a little to check no one was watching before they morphed. As for the teleporting, you could argue that the special effects aren't seen by Muggles, or even that they are just there for our benefit. Finally, solid colours were pretty common in that time period, so it's not ''too'' suspicious.
*** Also in regards to the colours, maybe people just assumed that they were fans of the rangers and like to dress in the same way.
* How the hell is Tommy not a ShellShockedVeteran? Seriously, the kid gets brainwashed by Rita. In a psychologically stable teenager, being kidnapped and forced to hurt your friends would pretty much be a one-way ticket to PTSD-land.
** Well, for one, he got a lot of revenge. For another, he became a mad scientist experimenting with dinosaur cyborgs and magic gems, which isn't exactly a sign of a stable mind. He was probably a nervouus wreck by the time of Dino Thunder, but didn't show it onscreen because, you know, putting up a brave facade for the students.

** Well, I'm no psychiatrist but I think you're misunderstanding the situation. At the time, at least, Tommy hadn't been forced to hurt the rangers per se, Rita had bewitched him so that he had ''wanted'' to. Sure, it would entail some guilt, but it's not like she forced him to knowingly be her slave, he wanted to. Besides, he was immediately forgiven and consoled by the rangers and got his revenge many times over afterwards. Furthermore, according to Wiki/TheOtherWiki, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychological_trauma not everyone experiences the same events as traumatic]], so whilst an experience like that might traumatise one person it might not traumatise another (like Tommy); everyone's different.

** In fairness, in the earlier episodes, Jason was pretty hot headed. When Bulk acted up, Zack usually had to cool Jason down from doing something stupid. He certainly had an attitude to start with, but it seemed to die down. Kim's overbearing and overemotional personality remained though, only really starting to diminish late S2/early S3, when half the squad was transferred and she had to take a more mature lancer role to guide the newbies. Billy ''is'' overbearing and overemotional, just not in the traditional light people think of when they hear the word attitude. But Billy has a strong attitude and interest towards scientific pursuit, and often overreacts with too much emotion when an experiment went wrong, if calculations weren't correct, or if he got a B on a test... it's still an overemotional attitude. Trini though, doesn't fit any catagory of overemotional or overbearing attitude.

** 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 whaever 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.

*** Take ''Ninja Storm'' for example. A large spaceship and the rangers have no zords capable of space flight. How do you propose they launch a successful attack? Cam was able to board it with the Dragonforce vehicle, but it didn't pack enough power to attack en masse.
*** S.P.D. While they knew the location of Grumm's ship, the only space worthy vehicles they had were the S.W.A.T flyers and possibly a couple of shuttles that were likely not designed for combat anyway. Five zords against a ship of that size are not good odds.
*** Overdrive: For most of the show, there was more than one villain faction - if the rangers went after, oh say, Moltar, Flurious could attack the HomeBase of the rangers. Not to mention that the rangers had the objective of making sure that the jewels from the Corona Aurora didn't fall into the hands of Moltar or Flurious - as long as those two didn't have the gems, the rangers wouldn't bother them.

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.

** Because in a good amount of seasons where the rangers know where the bad guys are, early on they aren't very powerful, and the element of surprise can only get you so far. If the rangers were to attack then, one of them could either fall or be captured; and they'd be in an even weaker state then before.

*** Actually it's been implied that the villains rely on it as much as the rangers.
** All rangers using the Morphing Grid is a ''very'' common misconception the Zeo Rangers used the Zeo Crystal which is a source of power rather then a way of drawing power from the Morphing Grid.
*** 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?
*** "Once A Ranger" only confirmed that the rangers that were in that episode (and by extension their teammates) used the Morphing Grid, thats only 48 out of 95 rangers which is ''barely'' over 50% and doesn't include the Zeo Rangers it's hardly proof.
*** Well, we know SPD and Dino Thunder use it, for one. If SPD uses it, then by extention we can assume Time Force used it. Plus, the display of the Morphing Grid in "Once a Ranger" was the transformation sequence background- implying that anyone with a trandformation sequence uses the Grid.
*** Um, so does that mean that the random Jungle from ''Jungle Fury'', The green swish in ''Wild Force'', The black empty space in ''Zeo'', The random volcano they teleport into in ''Dino Thunder'', and The...place Cam teleports into in ''Ninja Storm'', are all inside the Morphing grid?

*** Actually it's been implied that the villains rely on it as much as the rangers.
Rangers.
** All rangers Rangers using the Morphing Grid is a ''very'' common misconception the Zeo Rangers used the Zeo Crystal which is a source of power rather then than a way of drawing power from the Morphing Grid.
*** 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 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 Rangers used ''magic'' to morph and call their zords, Zords, and they're ''still'' considered to be tying into the Morphing Grid, 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".

*** 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. Its 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.
*** Simplest answer: The Zeo Crystal itself gets it's power from the Morphing Grid.

* Why didn't Saban or Disney use the Sentai Vs. movies for the teamup episode's fight footage?
** Saban did. Twice. The first was Rangers of Two Worlds, which is looked on relatively favorably, just mainly forgotten as it was made before the regular team ups. The second was Trakeena's Revenge, which had a host of behind the scenes mishaps and is generally considered subpar. The result has basically been that the team up is used to wrap up lingering plot threads from the previous season which either didn't exist or were modified from the Sentai footage (Jinxer's GoGoV counterpart was the team up villain for Timeranger, as opposed to Vypra in the Time Force, etc.), and as such, the Sentai footage doesn't fit the story being told.

* OK, a kinda minor one here, from the morphing sequence in the Mighty Morphin movie. That they went in a different order from usual is no big deal; it's different, but there's no apparent reason that the morphing calls have to be in the usual order. Heck, I don't even mind that the suits themselves and the morphing effect look significantly different; the suits are close enough (and, I'll admit, I kinda like the PoweredArmor look) and the different morphing effect gets by on RuleOfCool (and the idea that what we see in the show's morphing sequence probably isn't what it looks like in-universe anyway). No, what gets me is this. In the movie, the Rangers are using their first morphing calls, the ancient animals. (The change to the second calls, "<color> Ranger Power!", hadn't happened yet.) Tommy's the White Ranger at this point. The other rangers make their calls as usual, then we get to Tommy, who calls out, "White Tiger!" Wait a minute -- his first morphing call as the White Ranger was "Tigerzord!" The call itself is established as a necessary part of the morphing process, ever since the first episode of the show. Why did Tommy's morpher respond to a different call? What makes it even more head-scratching is that, when you think about it, "White Tiger" would have made sense as his morphing call, had it not already been established as "Tigerzord".

*** I doubt that. The behind-the-scenes answer is probably simpler than that, considering other points where the movie clashes with the show. Besides, I'm looking at this from an in-universe perspective. The Mighty Morphin morphers are, essentially, voice-activated, and, at least in fiction, voice-activated items will rarely assign two valid phrases for the same function. Tommy's morpher, at this point, responds to "Tigerzord", yet performs its function for a different phrase this one time.

** Well, the behind-the-scenes reason is clearly limitations from the sentai footage, but for an in-universe answer... maybe it's some sort of security program that the Rangers have no ability to override?

** The way I see it, the rangers have very powerful weapons, which could potentially cause damage and risk civilians. Use a blaster and you risk someone being caught in the crossfire. Summon a Megazord and think of the damage cause by the tremors created by the Megazord's footsteps. Best to only use them if absolutely necessary.

** Not only that, but the reason to not escalate the fight is to prevent, well, escalation. Say the enemy sends one monster to attack. If the rangers brought their Megazord out straight away before the monster had a chance to grow, yea they would probably win immediately. But what then? If they keep calling their Megazord every time a Putty or a Tenga or a Cog or whatever shows up, the villains are going to up their game. They'll start sending out fully grown monsters straight away. They will never ''not'' send out fully grown monsters. So what happens if a Ranger is late to the fight? What if the Megazord, due to overuse, is currently being repaired or refueled? In fact this might be why some Ranger teams don't always morph straight away when fighting footsoldiers. If they ''can'' beat the enemy without resorting to weapons, why use them and tempt the enemy to start sending out tougher challenges?

Really the only things they have to go for them is the [[CoolSpaceship starship armada]] (for as far as we know, have no defensive weapons for whatever reason and are sitting ducks) and the ability to create [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever giants out of their defeated high ranking members]] (I'll admit, those 50ft monsters could potentially cause heavy causalities to both civilian and military targets and might be able to take a lot of firepower before going down). But if this fleet were to ever launch a conventional invasion, they would be crushed while Human scientists would look over their technology and most likely sparks a new technological renaissance not scene since the post-WWII world.

A simple MonsterOfTheWeek would be able to slaughter entire squads of ordinary humans at a time using whatever their personal powers are.

That's why the rangers are so important, they can face down the monsters without much drain on resources or manpower.

There's no way you can have 6 super power teens, alien warlords, giant robots and be discreet.
** it's been like twenty in-universe years since Zedd and Rita were active, the current rangers tend to teens so they might not even have been born at the time, and after that, the threats were scattered to fairly isolated areas or scattered all over the place with no recognizable pattern.

** The "Less Marketable one" aspect isn't valid, since it's been proven that just because it wasn't very marketable in Japan doesn't automatically mean it won't be marketable in the US - ''Timeranger'' was a flop in terms of ratings and toy sales (it did well enough to avoid being cut short like ''JAKQ Dengekitai'' was, but that's it), while ''Gaoranger'' sold a ton of toys and was a big ratings success. However, ''Time Force'' was one of the most popular Power Rangers series (both at the time it aired and currently), whereas ''Wild Force'', while not as disliked now as when it first aired, is one of the more divisive series (and isn't as popular). Also, they never had to skip Sentai in the past (while Dairanger was never completely adapted, as the suits weren't used prior to Super Megaforce, some of the footage WAS adapted in season 2 of ''Mighty Morphin''), so to start doing so after adapting ''Shinkenger'' (a series which, while really liked, is heavily centered in Japanese culture) and ''Goseiger'' (which is widely considered one of the dullest sentai to date), two series which, if Saban had the option to before hand, would likely have been skipped, is a bit irritating to fans (especially since the first one that got skipped feels like it was practically BEGGING to be adapted into a sequel to RPM. And even if Saban still had to skip Sentai because of how far behind they were when they got the rights back, because it's being spread across 2 years, it means that they have to split the story in half - and as demonstrated by ''Samurai'' and ''Megaforce'', that can be disastrous. It would be one thing if Nickelodeon allowed Saban to film 40 episodes straight, but only aired 20 a year, but that's not the case.

** IIRC, it was a combination of trains not being as prominent in American culture and them thinking the zords looked silly.
* Shouldn't Lord Zedd alone be able to take on all 6 rangers back in 1993? Season 2 made Zedd out to be this big powerful overlord. As a kid, it was terrifying to see this evil creature get angry at his minions. I wonder why Zedd never teleported to earth and attack them himself given his ego. He seemed powerful enough to vaporize a human with just a snap of a finger.
** For the same reason Rita never did even though she was powerful enough to take out the Ultrazord in one shot: it's not her job to fight the rangers directly, it's their job to rule. Also direct confrontation opens them up to injury and destruction (remember even though he was totally outmatched against Zedd Tommy still managed to break Zedd's staff and get away with Kimberly).

** Well, if you remember there are a couple examples of multiple teams at once being unsustainable, or at least that's the implication. Remember in Dino Thunder how the two White Rangers, both Trent and the evil clone of him, were getting progressively weaker, and they had to fight to choose who'd be the remaining White Ranger. And, of course, Zordon's line "too much pink energy is dangerous". Plus, whenever there's a crossover episode, it comes up with some way that the previous rangers come out of then go back into retirement. Like, the Ninja Storm and Dino Thunder one, where the Ninja Storm guys get new morphers that are broken by the end. Or, the SPD and Dino Thunder ones, where there's time travel so they aren't around at the same time. The point is, it seems as if the Morphin' Grid, whatever it is and however it works exactly, can only sustain one ranger of each color at a time, and therefore only one team at a time.

Like, the Ninja Storm and Dino Thunder one, where the Ninja Storm guys get new morphers that are broken by the end. Or, the SPD and Dino Thunder ones, where there's time travel so they aren't around at the same time. The point is, it seems as if the Morphin' Grid, whatever it is and however it works exactly, can only sustain one ranger of each color at a time, and therefore only one team at a time.



** Because in todays' America where Japanese entertainment is more popular, that might work (though they'd probably dub it instead) but back then they probably didn't think it was American enough to be successful and feared it falling into a MinorityShowGhetto. And they're not about to replace Rangers with Sentai when it's been around for over twenty years and has its' own big fanbase.

** Well Zordon is is over simplifying. I think he specifically meant that Zedd wouldn't be able to make a White Candle in the same way Rita made a Green Candle. Although if you want to get specific, the White Ranger powers that Tommy lost in "Rangers in Reverse" weren't the same ones he received from Zordon. The original White Ranger coin was damaged by the destruction of the Thunderzords, alongside the other Dino Coins. They were still operable, as shown by Adam in "Always a Chance", but the damage made using them risky. The Rangers replaced the Dino Coins with the Ninja Coins which had identical suits, and ''those'' were the ones rendered useless when time was turned backwards. No-one ever said the White ''Ninja'' powers couldn't be taken away. And besides, the original White Ranger powers seem to be in working order by the time of Super Megaforce, as there's a scene where Tommy uses Saba and a point earlier in the season where Orion morphed into the White Ranger. So really, the original powers were never taken away at all.

** I believe by this time, Austin, Walter and Thuy were already sort of on strike. They had stopped turning up for ADR sessions (if you watch "White Light", you can see the Red, Yellow and Black Rangers have very little dialouge when morphed and even then, a lot of it is stock audio) and Saban likely figured it wouldn't be long before they stopped showing up for filming. It's hard to write stories where the team's leader rarely talks or even shows up.

** According to the ''Super Legends'' game, human-Zedd became an arcaeologist. Whether you consider the game canon or not could make this a moot point, but it's the best and only thing they've offered so far.

* Did anyone else notice the wheels on the back of the Wild Force Megazord's legs? I know in the toy this allows the Bison to turn into a carrier for the other zords to ride on, but why did it never show up in the series? Was it ever used in Gaoranger?
** The carrier formation is part of the Megazord's TransformationSequence, formed before the rangers get on board and shift it into its humanoid mode. It would have been interesting to see it used like the original Megazord's Tank Mode, but apparently not.
* Why do Power Rangers never call things in before engaging serious threats ([[MonsterOfTheWeek MotW]] not {{Mooks}})? Sometimes it makes sense but the vast majority of the time when they engage a monster even if they have reason to think they will need backup they don't call for it before charging in, you think Zordon would have made rule 4 "PoorCommunicationKills if you see a monster make sure to call us before engaging". And I know the answer is stock footage restraints, but the writers can just stall others getting there with some excuse.

** I'd say in general, there's no real need for a ranger to call something in. The ranger's HQ pretty much always has some kind of alarm system to detect a monster, so all the other rangers will be dispatch asap anyway. May as well jump in right now and start saving civilians instead of wasting time with an unneccesary call.

* This doesn't really bug me so much as Ron Wasserman's music almost always qualifies as CrowningMusicOfAwesome but back in the day when ''Power Rangers'' was the hot new thing on the market why did they make the music videos of all sorts of his other songs. To the best of my knowledge they weren't written for the show and were just used as fighting songs because they sounded cool. So why have them used in official music videos? Just RuleOfCool?

* What I don't get is all the references to ClarkKenting about the teams over the years. Look for a group of people who hang out together and wear the [[ColorCodedSecretIdentity same colors]] of the Rangers. That's actually not much to go on. The odds are there are plenty of cliques with a similar color scheme to nearly ''any'' group of rangers.

** True but thanks to the communicators they go get a warning beep not unlike a pager, so they'd know to leave and make sure no one noticed their teleportation.
* How exactly is Saban gonna justify the existence of 16 other ranger teams ([[Series/HimitsuSentaiGoranger Goranger]] to [[Series/ChoujinSentaiJetman Jetman]], plus [[Series/GoseiSentaiDairanger Dairanger]]) that existed before [[Series/KyoryuSentaiZyuranger Zyuranger]]/[[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers MMPR]] when it comes time to adapt ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger'' to the US?

* What was with the way the rangers used to run in Lost Galaxy? Did anyone ever notice this? They were always hunched over with their arms spread out. That's not a very efficient way of running. Weirder still, in the Lost Galaxy/Lightspeed Rescue teamup, there's a scene where Leo and Carter are running side by side. Carter is running in a normal sensible way, but Leo is still doing that weird hunched thing. Was there ever an explanation for it in Gingaman?

* Something that always bothered me in Power Rangers and Super Sentai, does Earth not have an army, air force, navy? Heck, what about a police force? Watching the opening of Gokaiger and remembering back to Countdown to Destruction I always wondered why the super powers of the world, U.S., England, Japan, etc. not set out fighter jets to help the rangers out too. It's nice to have superpowered beings on your side but alien invasions usually have a ton of aliens versus a handful of superpowered beings. Maybe if they got off their butts to help the rangers, the result would be much prettier...
** Rule 5 in the Power Rangers universe: the rangers are the end all solution to finish and win ALL fights. Besides, the last time we saw a military organization not directly affiliated with a ranger organization fighting a monster in Lost Galaxy, their attacks had no effect, and they turned over the killing to the rangers again.
** Except that we saw during Countdown to Destruction and certain episodes of Gokaiger that at the very least normal mooks can be taken down by the likes of Bulk and Skull or [[spoiler:The short Japanese kid with a Kendo stick]]. I can understand weapons not being effective against the monsters but against the mooks...if I was the leader of any country, I'd send in the army to crush the mooks so the rangers can focus on more important tasks, like the much more powerful monsters. Heck, you're telling me that the local highly train SWAT team can't crush a few mooks?
** To be fair, some seasons do address this in different ways. Lost Galaxy as mentioned above, had a defensive unit (incompetant as they were). RPM had the Corinth military who seemed to be well equipped enough to deal with basic footsoldiers. Time Force had the Silver Guardians while in Lightspeed Rescue and SPD, the rangers ''were'' the government sanctioned response.
** The local forces have likely realised the safest thing to do is to evacuate the area and leave the fighting to the rangers when possible. Sure, they might have something that can fight the basic mooks but if they do the villains will either send larger numbers of them or send something stronger.

* So, how exactly does the teleportation fit into the Power Rangers' arsenal? Is it just part of their powers, controlled by the communicators/morphers, controlled by the series' command centre or what?
** I believe it's to do with the Command Centre. When Billy built the original communicators, he tapped into the centre's teleportation grid by accident and they just decided it was convienient to keep the feature in. And I'm pretty sure there were occasions in the show when the teleportation grid was offline even though they could still morph. Different seasons may have different rules, but then teleportation kind of got written out of the show anyway. As far as I can tell, the only ranger who has teleportation abilities as a part of their power set is the Green RPM Ranger.

** The chest insignias, like the bulky muscles, are probably there to bring the Rangers more in line with stereotypical American superheroes. (Also, maybe they were trying to be inclusive of the colorblind?)

* Why do the rangers always seem to flinch and act scared whenever a monster goes through its growing sequence, despite it happening almost every time?
** A monster that grows has it's power magnified by several times, making it a huge threat to the rangers outside their zords. They're scared because they're in danger and vulnerable and they never know if their megazord will be strong enough to defeat it (sometimes the megazords fail and they have to kill it when it shrinks again).
* So when Disney got the rights to Power Rangers, they were going to axe the series after Wild Force...which was their only series at the time. Why did they buy it if they did not want to continue the series? Did they just not like it and wanted to buy it just so that they could end it? And for the record, it is a Merchandise Driven show, meaning that they wouldn't have gotten much money by just repeating the same seasons over and over again with no new toys to sell.

This was pre-"Power Transfer" where it would have it made sense to promote him. Instead Jason was just unceremoniously dropped after having led the team effectively for the entire series up to that point, and it felt like a massive MarySue moment in Tommy's favor.
** My personal theory is that while Jason was a good leader, I think he didn't ''like'' being the leader. I remember in the episode where they end up on the island where they witness their worst fears, Jason's worst fear is seeing his team disappear and being faced with the idea that he let them down. Maybe Jason himself would have preferred Tommy to be the leader but Zordan wouldn't agree to promote him until they sorted out his failing powers. The very first thing Jason says when Tommy is promoted is: "This is great." He could just be happy for Tommy, or maybe he's glad to no longer have to deal with the stress of leadership.

** More likely Zordon was reffering to the Green Ranger powers that Rita crafted and gave to Tommy; those were made by Rita (who, at this point, is still evil). The other Dino Coins were probably made from the same "light of goodness" that the White Ranger's coin was, but with prehistoric beasts (IE: The Dinozords) and not modern animals (IE: The Ninjazords).

But if this fleet were to ever launch a conventional invasion, they would be crushed while Human scientists would looks over their technology and most likely sparks a new technological renaissance not scene since the post WWII world.

*** Thats mostly because PlotArmor plays a very effective role in making sure sword wielding mooks remain a threat to gun toting Humans, the space ships aren't shot down by F-22s, and the Power Rangers look good in the BigDamnHero role. If we remove the PlotArmor, I give the aliens a few weeks tops on all war fronts if only due to [[ZergRush mass numbers]].
*** Even if we assume human level tech could hurt the monsters and mooks, which does vary from villain to villain but usually on the 'humans too weak to be effective' side, there's still the fact tat monsters can dish out huge amounts of damage. A simple MonsterOfTheWeek would be able to slaughter entire squads of ordinary humans at a time using whatever their personal powers are. Plus many villains simply create or summon their monsters so they have a never ending supply and can simply wear down the Earth's defenses. That's why the rangers are so important, they can face down the monsters without much drain on resoures or manpower. In many cases the ranger teams are outright stated to be the only threat to the BigBad.
** You underestimate modern military might. Those squads of Humans won't be attacking head on, they would be hitting from a distance, both with small arms and artillery if need be. Can those mooks and Monsters of the Week have a counter for air power. Also those spaceships would be attacked as the world powers of Earth would modify nuclear [=ICBMs=] to reach orbital atmosphere.

** it's been like twenty in-universe years since Zedd and Rita were active, the current rangers tend to teens so they might not even have been born at the time, and after that the threats were scattered to fairly isolated areas or scattered all over the place with no recognisable pattern. The information is out there but the average person just doesn't care enough anymore since Earth is no longer under constant attack from an individual threat.

* What is the whole point of Power Rangers? Subbing Super Sentai would have been so much easier, cheaper, less time consuming and more interesting than Power Rangers!

** Because in todays' America where Japanese entertainment is more popular, that might work (though they'd probably dub it instead) but back then they probably didn't think it was American enough to be successful and feared it falling into a MinorityShowGhetto. And they're not about to replace Rangers with Sentai when it's been around for over twenty years and has its' own big fanbase.
* 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.

** Well, if you remember there are a couple examples of multiple teams at once being unsustainable, or at least that's the implication. Remember in Dino Thunder how the two White Rangers, both Trent and the evil clone of him, were getting progressively weaker, and they had to fight to choose who'd be the remaining White Ranger. And, of course, Zordon's line "too much pink energy is dangerous". Plus, whenever there's a crossover episode, it comes up with some way that the previous rangers come out of then go back into retirement. Like, the Ninja Storm and Dino Thunder one, where the Ninja Storm guys get new morphers that are broken by the end. Or, the SPD and Dino Thunder ones, where there's time travel so they aren't around at the same time. The point is, it seems as if the Morphin' Grid, whatever it is and however it works exactly, can only sustain one ranger of each color at a time, and therefore only one team at a time.

** From what I know, they never explicitly state what the requirements are to get in. My guess? If you don't want to prove yourself, you can get in by paying a pretty sizable fee - said fee is used to pay for various things, such as uniforms and zords.


Added DiffLines:

*** SPD/Mystic Force can be justified by the fact that they'd need to use time travel again - while the SPD side certainly has the tech, it would be recycling the Dino Thunder/SPD crossover a bit; and in the case of Mystic Force, while they don't clearly establish the limits of power that magic can use, odds are that if a time control spell existed, one of the villains would've used it to bring back a rather nasty villain. And in the case of ''Wild Force''/''Ninja Storm'', assuming that the rangers didn't stay on the Animarium, Princess Shayla would've needed to be the one to specifically gather the Wild Force rangers up again.

** It's a lot easier to destroy one target than 3-5. And if you're going to make it 1 mech from the start, why not just require 1 person to control it?



*** Even then, Kamen Rider doesn't usually have mecha (and when they do, it's usually CGI; the only exception I can think of are for crossovers/movies when the Riders lend their powers to the Sentai mech, and that doesn't happen all the time). Also, in the case of shows like ''Gokaiger'' and [=''ToQger''=], the teams are usually changing suits left and right[[note]]the former can change into any team they want; the latter can change colors[[/note]]; it makes sense for those suits to be simple and made of Spandex.

** 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.



** In the similar show Masked Rider (an Amarican adaptation/{{macekre}} of Series/KamenRiderBlackRX), which is also made by Saban, the BigBad Count Dregon gets a suggestion to unleash all of his monsters at once. He dismisses the idea, saying that all of those monsters loose at the same time would be too much for even him to control. So there you go.

** Usually, the only time in ''Sentai'' that more than one giant monster is released by the villains is when it's one of the EliteMooks - releasing a bunch of giant [[MonsterOfTheWeek MOTWs]] would mean that each one would have their own power, and as mentioned earlier with Linkara justifying Ransik's behaviour, the villains would not be in control.



*** Red Turbo powers: Apparently sapped by the conquering of Eltar, but as we saw in True Blue to the Rescue, the Turbo powers are either still in working order, or the Blue ranger powers were now energised by Storm Blaster. By that same logic, the Red Turbo powers could be powered by Lightning Cruiser now. And since "Countdown to Destruction" would've resulted in the freeing of Eltar, ''all'' the Turbo powers should be back in working order.

** The man had long flowing hair for atleast 7 years. One of the few skills the man hasn't mastered was making good hair choices.
