*** Gokaiger footage limitation and it was implied the other Power Animals were killed, leaving only GaoLion, which is why he was hostile at first. Plus, Saban being Saban, he's too cheap to think of making new footages for Power Rangers exclusive scenes.



** That will forever remain in the closet of unsolved mysteries. Super Megaforce is considered a huge fail by many anyway.



** Only that it was not done and the fact that the Super Hero Taisen crossovers will not be touched by Saban anyway although Dex the Masked Rider did crossover with the Power Rangers at one point which ironically leads to Shinkenger and Decade as the first teaming up though it unofficially occurred in J.A.K.Q. vs. Dengekitai first even though the Kamen Rider in that moment was only mentioned.



* Is this season even canon? I mean, series continuity errors, whether intentional, or not, horrible writing, little of an actual plan for where it was supposed to go, new teams that were NEVER set up before, Gosei & Tensou, the legacy rangers apparently switching back & forth between having their powers or not, not being hinted at in Dino Charge whatsoever...is it canon? Also, does it even remotely deserve to be canon? In my opinion, no, it doesn't. At least not the Super half anyways.

** It is considered canon until the director, writers or producer say that it's not. Dino Charge is arguably considered occurring in a different dimension, similar to RPM. However, it's also said that the Dino Gems and Energems came from the "same meteorite", not "a meteorite". This being Power Rangers and all, there are bound to be lots of inconsistencies every now and then.

* How are there Ranger Keys for the SPD Rangers if SPD takes place about ten years after Megaforce/Super Megaforce, and two of the three times that the Rangers teamed up with the SPD Rangers, it ended in the Rangers having their memories wiped (ironically both times were the Dino Thunder Rangers). The only time that Rangers met the SPD Rangers and didn't have their minds wiped was when Bridge teamed up during the Once A Ranger episode. So how on Earth do the Rangers have the keys to a team that hasn't even been formed yet, with a police force that is just beginning to be known (as canon says that the Space Patrol Delta was just beginning to become public in the year 2015).

** Like what Gosei would say. There's a simple explanation for that. Except that... no. There is none. We never heard Gosei explained to Jake's color from Black to Green anyway. Not just S.P.D. but also RPM. S.P.D. can be forgiven because, as we can see, Jack just handed Sky the Red Ranger morpher just like that. In some way, it's (Wild Mass Guessing) safe to say that the powers of S.P.D. were already made and the S.P.D. Rangers could be the year 2014's S.P.D. team at the time before they retire those powers and said powers eventually come to the hands of Doggie who then handed them to Jack, Sky, Bridge, Z and Syd. But when it comes to explaining RPM... the ultimate question is... Is the Morphing Grid connected to ALL the universes/dimensions out there?

** Noah is the one of the entire team who knows about the previous and future Power Rangers teams. And while Power Rangers is an adaptation, they will NOT adapt everything and everyone to be the same. Let's go back to the first MMPR. Is Jason like Geki? Nope. Is Zack like Goushi? Nope. Is Billy like Dan? Nope. Is Trini like Boi? Nope. Is Kimberly like Mei? Nope. Is Tommy like Burai? Nope. The only ones, on the other hand, who are quite like their Super Sentai counterparts so far are... Eric (Time Force) and Merrick (Wild Force, most likely).

** The answer is out. [[spoiler: Starting from Mighty Morphin Yellow Ranger, it is either Trini or Aisha but most likely Trini because she left for the summit with her powers intact and a copy went to Aisha. For Zeo, Red Zeo Ranger is not shown because of Tommy being the Mighty Morphin Green Ranger which also means that Mighty Morphin White Ranger and Black Dino Ranger are also not shown in the finale episode. As for the Turbo Rangers, they are the Robo ones minus Justin. As for the S.P.D. Rangers, we last seen Bridge as S.P.D. Red Ranger so it is safe to assume that they were summoned from a different point in time before their own S.P.D. series end]].

** The morphing grid can handle multiple rangers drawing from the same source for a short time. Attempting it long term would overload the grid but short term they're fine.

* Why did Gosei wake up ''now'' of all times? There's at least half a dozen instances in the past where you think his presence would be a bit more needed than the case of a few bumbling bug aliens showing up. You would think that the [[PowerRangersTurbo Ranger powers being destroyed]] or [[PowerRangersInSpace all the evil in the galaxy invading the planet]] would have crossed well over the GodzillaThreshold.

* Why didn't they just make Orion a Power Rangers fanboy like Gai Ikari? I get that there needs to be SOME differences between Megaforce and Gokaiger, and that it's an homage to the first 2 silver rangers, but he could have been an alien AND a Power Rangers fanboy - it's not a case where if he's one, he can't be the other; in fact, it would be a nice inversion of what happened in Gokaiger - the sixth ranger is an alien who's obsessed with the Power Rangers, and the Earth just so happens to hold the most significance to every Power Ranger team, in comparison to the main team, who are humans from Earth and know very little about Power Rangers.

*** In the corresponding episodes of ''Shinkenger'' and ''Gaoranger'' the rangers that returned were Hime Shinkenred and Gao Red. Due to Saban likely not wanting to spoil the most recently finished season, it was likely changed so that instead of Lauren (Hime Shinkenred's PR counterpart), Jayden (Takeru's/Shinkenred's PR counterpart) appeared; and likely because they did not want to use 2 red rangers in a row, Cole was cut. Although this does raise the question of why they didn't get another Wild Force cast member back.

*** What they ended up doing is that instead is cramming a bunch of the Megazord power ups in at once.

* So, despite the team having access to the Dino Thunder Powers, Dino Thunder being in the main continuity, AND none of the other teams having lost their powers, the Megaforce Rangers using the powers of other teams doesn't cause problems? This is a catch-22 situation: if the other teams are using their powers, then there should be a glitch in the Morphin Grid; and if they aren't, then why? It would be a lot more efficient for the other Earth ranger teams (assuming none of the alien teams came to help) to fight the Armada in other places while morphed while limiting the Megaforce rangers to the "Powers Never Before Seen on Earth" than for the other rangers to sit on the sidelines while the Megaforce rangers are morphed.

** What they ended up doing was going to the Animarium and recruiting the Lion Wild Zord after it recognized and acknowledged them. Odds are that if it wasn't for the legal troubles Cole's actor was facing, they would have just had him fill the role [[Series/HyakujuuSentaiGaoranger Kakeru]] had in the corresponding Gokaiger episode and have it be closer to the source material, especially since he was in Samurai as Dekar.


Added DiffLines:

**** Problem with this theory is that when the powers were used, Orion hadn't even arrived on Earth, much less joined the team, and Gosei didn't know that Orion was active. If it was something like the Power Rangers equivalent to, oh say, ''Series/ChoujuuSentaiLiveman'', and they had used those powers after he arrived, that explanation might work, but that's not the case.
