*** No regular actors, with the exception of JohnnyYongBosch, whose suit-actor was injured during a difficult stunt. Johnny's so badass, he did all his own stunts, ''including'' in the Ranger suit.

* There are like over a hundred power rangers operating on earth at the same time. They are fully aware of each other, so why don't they all work together, and form a gigantic Justice League-type team? Why do the teams go their separate ways after the "Legendary Battle?"

** 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.

*** Speaking of which, why was the Metallic Armor basically the same suits but shinier, when they had the perfectly good movie suits to use as a MidSeasonUpgrade? The same goes for the new Ninja Ranger outfits that were nowhere near as cool as the Ninjetti outfits. (Come to think of it, they also changed the Piranhatron outfits between the Turbo movie and the show, but the show Piranhatron outfits were cooler... well, IMHO, anyway.)

* In Turbo: A Power Rangers movie, Adam is holding his Thunder Cannon backwards. Correct me if I'm wrong, but IIRC he manages to fire at enemies using what should be the back end of the cannon which makes no sense. Wouldn't it be funny if he tried to fire it at a Piranhatron in front of him but ended up blowing up the wall behind him?

*** YOU'RE not listening, it's been done. Several series have involved a local military force, often using weapons more advanced than what you're describing and it always goes the same way: they end up mildly effective at best because the villains are just that strong.

** 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).

* 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.

** ...it would be too similar to ''Series/ShiningTimeStation'' and ''WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine'' that the creators of those shows would threaten to sue?

*** 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.

*** 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.

** Similarly, how did she get ownership of an industrial waste dump in "Teamwork"? She says she's using humanity's pollution against them, so she can't have just made the toxic waste appear by magic.
