** Perhaps Mike specifically requested that Leo didn't come along? Seems like a bit of a dick move, but there's definitely some tension between them when they first meet on-screen. Maybe Mike thought Leo would be a liability on the mission. As for the old lady, perhaps she did have some special skills or expertise, but just happened to be wearing civilian clothing while on her way to the space station.

* Exactly why didn't ''[[Series/ResshaSentaiTokkyuger Ressha Sentai ToQger]]'' get adapted into a ''Power Rangers'' season? Was it because...
** ...toy sales for ''[=ToQger=]'' weren't good in Japan?
** ...most stock footage was unusable due to Japanese characters (meaning Saban would have to shoot lots of original footage)?
** ...trains aren't a popular theme for American children's action shows?
** ...having an imagination theme would [[PeripheryDemographic attract more preschoolers than grade school boys]]?
** ...it would be too similar to ''Series/ShiningTimeStation'' and ''WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine'' that the creators of those shows would threaten to sue?

Added DiffLines:

*** There actually ''was'' a perfectly usable shot of Lokar being destroyed by the Ultrazord from the ''Zyuranger'' finale... The problem is, it looked horrible. Instead of having the giant special effects-projected head explode (such as how they did in "Island of Illusion"), they instead had a badly-made prop of Lokar's head literally ''burst into chunks''. The effects for the shot were really not that good at all (almost resembling something from an Ed Wood movie). In fact, now that I think about it, they should have just reused the shot of him "exploding" from "Island of Illusion."

* Just what happened to have Fowler Birdy so pissed off at Doggie Cruger? And why, if Birdy - the SPD ''Supreme Commander'' - was so mad at Doggie, was Doggie able to make it to the position of SPD Commander Earth Branch?
** Birdy's an idiot. What more do you need?
*** But apparently not so dumb as to let his personal feelings in the matter interfere with his assignment.
** My pet theory is that Birdie was a perfectly competent low-level bureaucrat who sort of stumbled into Supreme Commandership more or less by accident when Sirius was sacked, killing off the (presumably mostly-Sirian) upper brass. He's resentful toward Doggie because he's got something to prove. I rather imagine everyone in SPD thinks Kruger would have made a better Supreme Commander. (Indeed, he may even resent Doggie for ''not'' taking over as supreme commander, forcing him in over his head. I can easily imagine Kruger turning the job down, given the healthy dose of survivor's guilt he was carrying) Remember, when Doggie came to Earth, it was 2001 or so, so Earth would have been kinda the boondocks, a good place to stick someone who has too much pull to just get rid of.
* Similarly, why did the Troobian Empire annihilate all of Sirius, but capture Isinya alive? What use did Omni have for her that not even Gruumm was allowed to know? And why wasn't Gruumm allowed to taunt Doggie with the fact that his wife was alive?
** Sadistic bastards don't need no reason.
* Why did A-Squad turn on the rest of the SPD? They said they wanted to be on the "winning team", but except for the Sirius disaster, there's not really any evidence that the Troobian Empire was having the SPD on the ropes.
** {{Brainwashed}} by Onmi was my assumption.
*** WordOfGod says no, they were not brainwashed. Omni or Gruumm might have explained their plans to them and they thought it sounded good, or they might know something we don't. But Bridge thought there was something 'off' with their aura as early as the first episode.



* Simple answer, because the town is populated solely by complete idiots.

* London did not empty out during the Blitz, did it? No matter how bad a city gets pounded, short of a massive organized evacuation or complete urban destruction and block leveling people are always going to live in it. There are several reasons for this, such as attachment to their childhood homes, lousy house prices meaning they won't get a good deal for their properties, nearby jobs, more stubborn relatives who are unwilling to leave who they don't want to abandon, etc...\\
* That's what bother you? In Super Sentai, it has been going on for 40 years. The citizens living in Japan I mean. They have the Super Sentai, Kamen Riders, Space Sheriffs, etc. to protect them. But anyway, it is pointless to move from places to places whenever there are monster attacks because it is very and I mean extremely expensive to do so. Maybe the billionaires and all those people won't be affected but eventually their income will drain out from moving too much. Might as well spend money in the same place than move away, spend money there, gets attacked, move away again, spend money there again, get attacked again, etc.
And why do the Rangers have secret identities when Rita and Zedd already know who they are?
* No particular reason, they just don't want to receive the credit along with the fame and fortune they should receive for saving the friggin' world so many times. (Imbeciles...)

* Is it just me, or is Jungle Karma Pizza ''seriously'' understaffed? We've got three Power Rangers, their mentor, and Fran. And Fran and the Rangers got hired in the pilot, so it was just R.J. before that. Is it just me, or does R.J. need to hire some more people, preferably ones who don't have to take an extra-long lunch break to defend the city?
** RJ could have had staff before then that had all been fired before the pilot. Real-life managers have done weirder things.
** Brilliance! He fired them all to bring the rangers and him together! And give them an HQ. And make a killing on pizza, wait what?



* In ''SPD'', who honestly thought it was a good idea to have a building full of people turn into a Zord? What happens to everyone trapped in it's limbs?
** When the voice-over orders you to the safety zones, ''you'd better get there fast!'' I bet they've got drills for it or something. But the existence of safety zones means yeah, they thought of that.
** The Sirians who began SPD and ran it until Sirius fell, most likely. Note that, save for two, they are all dead now. And one of those two is only alive due to enemy mercy/sadism.
*** They handwaved something about safety zones where they would run when it needed to transform. But still, lets put a building full of trainees in the line of fire and hope to god nobody scores a very lucky shot and wipe out the G Squad.



* As this question has bugged people I'll put it here: if Sentinel Knight could restore the powers of the other rangers in "Once A Ranger", why didn't he restore the Overdrive Rangers' powers.
** And my answer: Sentinel Knight could restore the powers of the other rangers because their sections of the Morphing Grid were undamaged, he couldn't do that with the Overdrive Rangers because of the damage caused by Thrax. Had the damage spread to the other sections, the other rangers would have lost their powers as well.
** It could also have been an Aesop. The Overdrive Rangers were getting rather cocky at the start of the episode, so it may have been a conscious decision on the Knight's part to leave them unpowered to teach them not to take their powers for granted.
** Why didn't, for that matter, he restore ''every Ranger ever?'' Did he just not have enough juice for it?
*** That's exactly it, he states that he uses "the last of his energy" to restore the new team's powers. Before being restored at the end of the season, the Sentinel Knight was just a reflection of his formal power. It is also possible that the damage to the morphing grid was why he picked Rangers from different groups, rather than, say, all of Mystic Force. Taking rangers that were all tapped into different parts of the grid would be less likely to overtax the already damaged grid.



* Why in the world is an alien lifeform in charge of (and apparently unchecked on this front) protecting the Earth as a police-military commander? As of Once A Ranger, Doggie Cruger is the most powerful being in whatever scope SPD happens to have. The SPD Rangers have unlimited jurisdiction; the ones we saw were the "defenders of Earth" so what would normal Earth cops do if they went A-Squad? What would ANYONE do? Who does Cruger answer to, and what sort of system makes this anything less than a "benevolent" dictatorship? Let's say Cruger and Dr. Manx are compromised. Suddenly the entire jurisdiction of SPD is under the control of the Shadow Ranger (most powerful Ranger in existence) and his judgment scanner (used as the last form of determining guilt or innocence of a criminal; can be tampered with). What makes this different from any other alien warlord taking over the planet?
** [[http://www.funaroverse.db-destiny.net/fbBB/viewtopic.php?t=1715 This line of thinking has came up before]]
*** Hey, that rocks pretty hard, and this guy brings up points I didn't even think of. Jack and Z came from a pretty bad part of town, and they probably grew up with people second-guessing them and believing all sorts of things about them. But they were still [[FantasticRacism racist]] against Sophie. Also, we saw like three holding cells for the bad guys; one for Jack, one for Wootox, and one for Hanni--er, for Mirloc (funnily enough, the "making transportation of the perp a non-issue" thing would have worked pretty well for Wootox, eh Sky?) but never for other baddies, not even the A-Squad. Do they just get carded for life? Is this the predecessor to Time Force's indefinite freezing sentences?
*** With Doggie, I figure because it's an intergalactic organization, anyone can be stationed anywhere. It bugged ''me'' that Kruger was the ''only'' alien SPD Ranger.
* Speaking of Sophie, of all ways to make your {{Anvilicious}} racism episode, ''why did they make her so damned suspicious-looking?'' She did everything a person could ''possibly'' do to look like she was up to something, and when we find out what's going on, it turns out her keeping her secret ''nearly got everybody killed.'' She should thank [[{{Transformers}} Primus]] that she only was dismissed from SPD instead of ''thrown in jail.'' Then the next episode, we ''pretend'' the previous episode was about racism, and make sure we drop an anvil in ''every scene ever,'' each time being more and more glaring because you know the moral of the story ''should'' have been "if you want to get in good with your superiors, ''not endangering the entire freaking city'' helps just a little." My ''God,'' Kalish!



* Why did Hayley never get in the opening of PRDT? She was in ''nearly'' every episode, and she was awesome. Meanwhile, the stupid truck that we only see once, in the ''next-to-last episode,'' gets a lot of screentime in the opening titles.
** Her contract? Or maybe she requested not to?
** It could actually be a reflection of her character. She's a powerful figure, but safest away from the spotlight.



* If Andrew Hartford was so willing to become a ranger, why didn't he make another morpher for himself after his son got the position? Furthermore, why did the Retro Rangers leave after "Once a Ranger"? The Sentinel Knight did not seem to consider them temporary. He implied that they would replace the Overdrive rangers. If he planned on keeping the team, why didn't they just team up with the Overdrive team (other than Sentai reasons, of course)? It couldn't have somehow put too much strain on the Knight, as he was shown being just fine (and even more powerful with Excelsior) when they ''did'' team up.
** Why didn't he keep them? They had their own lives. They were willing to help out with the incumbents incapacitated, but if they're not needed, it would be cruel to keep them from their own lives and, in Bridge's case, era. As for Andrew, we don't really know what power source or materials he was using. He may not have had enough for a seventh, and he probably knew based on his wardrobe that he wasn't cut out to be silver.
*** But it's been proven before that you only need to start wearing your color exclusively ''after'' receiving powers. Plus, they all wear uniforms, anyway.
*** On that note, why did Cam, creator of the Tsunami Cycle tech, never make one for himself? I think there's even a green Tsunami Cycle toy, so... yeah.
*** Cam doesn't know how to ride a motorcycle. Why make yourself a piece of equipment you'd just embarrass yourself on?
* Jungle Fury: They're supposed to have secret identities, right? So how come they never morphed until they were out in public where everyone could see them? And why did they always wear those jackets with the same symbol that was on the front of their ranger outfits?
** Same reason everyone feels a psychological compulsion to wear outfits predominantly in their ranger color, and why the original team felt they were far enough to teleport when they were five feet from the main room of the juice bar. GoodIsDumb.
** They would sometimes morph while jumping down the giant chute-tunnel-thing in RJ's loft, so not always.



* At the end of S.P.D, how come Bridge puts up such a fuss about being promoted to A squad, but is totally okay with changing power sets from green to blue? The promotion to A squad is just a change in letter, it makes no difference. Changing powers means having to get used to new zords. Did he just really hate the colour green or something?
** I think it was to do with the fact their predecessors were traitors, thus tainting the rank.
** He made the statement while a green ranger before he knew Sky or himself where moving up in the chain of command. Furthermore even if Jack had stayed Bridge would have still been a green ranger. Making the above sentence the real reason.
* So, Ronny is a race car driver, but Will gets the Speed Driver?



* In Wild Force, why did Danny always pronounce "Iron Bison" as "eye-RON"? Is that a legitimate way of pronouncing the word? I've never heard anyone say it that way before, but surely the director would have corrected the actor.
** Danny has a very thick accent due to his actor (Jack Guzman) actually being Colombian and was having a hard enough time with his English. Constantly correcting him when he's already doing the the best he can would be cruel.



* Why is the Elephant Spirit Ranger's color so much different than its zord's color?
** He'd probably look a little too similar to the Shark Ranger.
*** Still, they could make it a ''little'' more bluish-green.
*** Well green's a more memorable ranger colour. With two blue rangers on the team already, a third one of a slightly different shade would be overdoing it.
*** Bluish green, not greenish blue.



* Dax and Miratrix. I'm okay with him getting over her whole deception in one episode, since they hadn't been dating for long, Dax is TheDitz, and the writers needed AnAesop. However, IIRC, their relationship is mentioned all of ''once'' after this. I dunno, I just feel like they could have used their previous relationship as the basis for more plotlines (and possibly jokes)...
** How do you use a nonexistant relationship for more plotlines,especially after her reveal as a villian? And by "once" you mean the rest of the season right?
*** What do you mean "the rest of the season"? Last time I checked, they barely referenced it. As for plotlines, Miratrix could create a plan/trick hinging on Dax being more sympathetic towards her (he wouldn't have to fall for it; the important thing would be that Miratrix ''thinks'' Dax is enough of an idiot to let his previous relationship with her cloud his judgement). Or they could have tried a StarCrossedLovers sort of deal.
*** That would have been awesome.



* So if Merrick was an Animarium Warrior, he would have been chosen by a Wild Zord, right? But as we learn during the series, he doesn't acquire the Wolf, Hammerhead Shark and Alligator crystals until the final battle with Master Org. So shouldn't he have had another Wild Zord prior to that?
** According to the Power Rangers wiki, he didn't have one; it was the other five who used the Crystal Sabers. He was Princess Shayla's personal guard.



* Why did Frax keep acting evil in ''Series/PowerRangersTimeForce'' after getting some revenge on Ransik? He even stated that deep down humans weren't his enemy, only Ransik's. So why did he go on to keep building giant robots to conquer and cause destruction if he didn't consider humans his enemy?
** Because he wanted ''more'' revenge on Ransik (and to get back to the year 3000), and needed resources to do so. Resources he could only get from the humans.
** (original poster) But if that was the case, there are lower key ways to get resources than building a HumongousMecha and destroying the city senselessly. Though in thinking about this, perhaps his time with Ransik corrupted his internal fortitude so that now he too seeks to cause anarchy and destruction just like Ransik.
* WordOfGod says that Turtle Cove is in Colorado. How in God's name did Cole manage to get to a landlocked state from his jungle home by CANOE?!
** Without anyone noticing him, no less!
** Umm...the Morphin Grid...thingy. [[AWizardDidIt DO NOT QUESTION THE POWER.]]
** On that same note, Turtle Cove is clearly the place where the Animarium was long ago. Why did Cole's parents have to go to this far away jungle to find the remains of Master Org, and for that matter, why were his remains so far away from the site of the battle of the Animarium itself?



* Tommy being the black Dino Thunder Ranger had several references to his original Green Ranger possition. He had a pointy gold sheild (though only on his shoulders this time), he had more gold to his costume, and he was the first Ranger added to the team (after being the first Ranger added to ANY team). Heck, the key for the morpher even mirrors his last powers, the Turbo powers. But one thing bugs me. In Abaranger, the key to Abareblack's henshin device was a harmonica. A musical instrument. The Green Ranger's Dragon Dagger was a flute. A musical instrument. Why couldn't they use that as a reference? Maybe just a quick scene at the end of an episode where he pulls out the key and plays a Dragonzord song on it?
** That would have been cool. Although, I'm not sure that Disney actually had the rights to the original Dragonzord tune, as evidenced by...whatever that was that played in Tommy's battle with the Green Ranger. Even so, just playing anything on it would have been nice.
* In the end of Wild Force, Taylor goes back to the Air Force after being missing for more than a year. Am I the only one bothered that they let her back in, seemingly no questions asked? She vanished over home territory with a multi-million dollar fighter jet. Even if they presumed she was lost in a crash, it would raise some serious questions when she just shows up a year later. Things like "Where were you?" "Where's your jet?" "If you're fine why didn't you report back earlier?". The military in general tends to frown upon people going AWOL after all. For that matter, why didn't some serious alarms go off when her license got ran earlier in the season?
** Maybe there were a bunch of questions asked, and we just didn't see it on screen.
*** She was "given a hero's welcome" that doesn't sound like asking questions to me.
*** Power Rangers are known to communicate with one another, especially after Forever Red, and Lightspeed Rescue was a government operation. She probably had word passed that she was, essentially, on a covert ops mission necessary for national security, with Lightspeed Rescue vouching for her, which ensured the Hero's Welcome when she got back from said mission.



* Was anyone else bugged by the moment near the end of the [[Series/PowerRangersJungleFury Jungle Fury]] where Casey's feeling down and Dom inspires him by telling him about ''Literature/ToKillAMockingbird''? I'm all for encouraging kids to read, particularly a classic like Mockingbird, but what bugs me is that Dom says the book is all about redemption. Is there another version of the book I don't know about? Because I sure don't remember redemption being one of the central themes.
** Actually, if you think about it, it was: Dai Shi possessed Jarrod, and Carnisoar sent him back to the past to rob him of his humanity. He was slipping into the darkness more and more as the series progressed, and Casey saw good within Jarrod. When Casey faced off against him, he broke through to the good side of him. After that (an episode later no less), Jarrod still questioned whether he can still be redeemed from his past as Dai Shi.
*** I don't disagree that there's a redemption story in Jungle Fury. I'm saying that there ''isn't'' one in To Kill a Mockingbird. You could argue that ''maybe'' there is when it comes to Boo Radley's character, but that wasn't the main story of the book. Dom states the book is ''all'' about redemption and it's not. It's about a lawyer having the courage to defend a black man at a time when most people would think it wrong of him. ''That'' is actually pretty close to what Casey is going through at this point, but Dom talks about redemption when the message should have been about having the courage and conviction to do what you think is right.



* The SPD morphers are Sirian technology, though most of the operatives are human for obvious reasons. So, why is it that the default helmet design is shaped like a human head with a flat face, and the only Sirian example we see has doglike ears on that default humanshaped helmet, rather than a default doglike helmet modified for human use on the human operatives? Why would a doglike species design suits that require shapeshifting or squeezing for their own species to fit into?
** I thought Kat created Cruger's morpher. Still doesn't explain why the helmet doesn't have a snout, but it was at least invented by someone with a more or less human shaped head.

* Okay, so in ''Once a Ranger'', the veteran rangers are seen piloting a zord. This isn't a problem, except..how the hell does Xander know how to pilot a zord??? In ''[[Series/PowerRangersMysticForce Mystic Force]]'', the rangers ''became'' the zords.
** I would imagine Mr Hartford designed the zords to be quite user friendly. The Overdrive rangers figured out how to drive after all, and only one of them was a professional driver.



* Why did Tyzonn seemingly show feelings for Rose in "One Fine Day" when he has a fiancee? Maybe he was just trying to be her friend, but it seemed really odd...
** Didn't he think his fiancee was dead? Maybe he was trying to move on until he found out she was still alive.
** Not really. He never outright implied he thought she was dead, he only said that he would continue searching for her because he thought she was alive.
* Man, Overdrive has a ''lot'' of these, doesn't it? So when Norg speaks to Vella, Vella says "there can be only one Tyzonn." Didn't Tyzonn himself state that his name was ''common'' on his planet?? This is a pretty minor one, but it still bugs me.



* How the FUCK did Mack move a car and rip the door off one in "Kick Into Overdrive, Part 2" when his genes weren't even re-sequenced yet?
** It's not uncommon for rangers to show great feats of strength. In one episode of SPD, Bridge is able to hurl an entire car at a monster. It's implied that morphing enhances the user's physical strength. Mack's [[spoiler: supposed]] gene re-sequencing simply allowed him to use super strength when unmorphed as well.



* So in SPD Kat tells Sky that he can't use the battlizer because it's only compatable with Red Ranger technology. WHY? Kat designed and created all the morphers (save for the Omega morpher) ''and'' the battlizer! The only reason that it wouldn't be compatible is if she deliberately designed it that way. Why would she do that? What is so special about the Red SPD powers that makes them so different from the others? The fact that it comes with two blasters instead of a sword? And I notice she didn't have this "compatability" issue when she modified the Delta Squad Megazord to combine with the Omega Max Cycle. Compare this to Samurai where Shogun Mode could be used by any ranger (save for Gold who developed his powers seperately, now ''that's'' a believable compatability issue!). So apparently samurai who lived centuries ago were making better battlizers that Kat in the year 2025! Apparently Kat is a sucky inventor...
** LawOfChromaticSuperiority. Battlizer's are, generally speaking, a Red Ranger only privilege. Now, in Universe, there is no real explanation for it.
** Budget? SPD is an official agency, so they must be tax funded in some way. Since the Red Ranger is officially the superior officer, it's likely the budget only allowed for one balltizer and it was keyed to the senior officer on the team.
* Why did Andrew Hartford build Mack to look like he was in his late teens? Was he too lazy to update him to simulate growing up? Or maybe he had other reasons....either way, it's kind of weird.
** It was most likely the former. Because Mack is a robot and won't physically age past the age of 18 or so (how he was built), he's at a relatively reasonable age to live on his own when Andrew passes away while still getting to enjoy being a kid. Basically, Andrew probably built him approaching young adulthood not because he had weird intentions with him, but because he didn't want to have a son that was permanently stuck at an age where he wasn't able to take care of himself; considering how human Mack looks, it probably took Andrew a really, really long time to build him, and to constantly update him to age him would only waste his time.



* So at the end of SPD Jack leaves and Sky is promoted to Red and Bridge to Blue. But why isn't Z promoted to Green and Syd to Yellow? It's unlikely to be a sexism thing because if it were then there would be no way they would've had the A-Squad Red Ranger be a woman.
** My guess is that the way SPD's command structure works is that every team requires a Red Ranger as leader and a Blue Ranger as the second in command. All other colours are optional, so making Z Green and Syd Yellow wouldn't really count as a promotion.
* How come in Changing of the Zords, when Kat capture's the pink power coin Zedd and Rita are able to capture the Falconzord? And don't say "in Kakuranger, the Falconzord was introduced after the Shogunzords were" or "Amy Johnson wanted out of the show", the Falconzord in MMPR is tied to Tommy's power coin, so why not steal Tommy's coin?

** I think it's like the Speed Force in the {{DCU}}. 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.

** I have a feeling that in the early days of ''Lost Galaxy'' they had planned on there being a TimeSkip. The first episode has the narrator claiming that this season takes place "sometime in the not-too-distant future". Given that Bulk is still around and doesn't look any older, I would guess that it's meant to be, say, five years after ''In Space''. If the Megaship wasn't being maintained during that time frame, it could have fallen into disrepair. However, since the show kept on going, I guess the TimeSkip idea was dropped, leaving us with a minor plot hole.



** And, in blunt terms, why, apparently, is the old woman who Leo retrieves the pass for prioritized over an able-bodied young person? Based on her attire, she appears to be just a civilian, traveling to the 'new world,' not apparently any kind of scientist (as we see Kendrix and other scientific staff already aboard Terra Venture), and yet she's been given a ticket, while Leo isn't?

** Aisha probably took care of the paperwork once time righted itself, so her parents no doubt know that she's doing volunteer work in Africa (Alpha probably could forge the neccesary documents to make it seem like an official program or something). Tanya's parents are IndianaJones style archaeologists, so she probably contacted them after time righted itself asking for money for an apartment; they show up in Zeo and don't seem to mind that he daughter is on a different continent than where they left her. Also, given that time warping was involved, its possible that Tanya had been in Africa in the '80s, and thus when time was reversed, but had been in California in the present time.

Added DiffLines:

** Leaving Angel Grove meant they lost that option of cover - living in a town not under attack by monsters, they couldn't explain their sudden absence to go fight the monsters. Makes it much easier for someone, for example, to piece together 'every time there's a monster attack being reported happening out of town, you suddenly disappear.' At least when everyone has to evacuate for a monster attack, it's easier to hide your disappearance in the panic of the civilians.
