* 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.

* 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).

*** 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.

* Regarding the names for the teams that have never been seen on Earth before. I can buy the names they give the Flashmen, Changemen, and Dairangers (Prisms and flashes are related to light; one of the Changemen is Change Dragon - although I would have chosen "Mythic" or "Mythical" given what the rest of the members are named; and "Squadron" could work with pretty much any team)...but then we get to the name they gave the Maskmen. Last time I checked, the Maskmen have light based powers. Why are they called ''Lightning''? I could buy that name being used for the PR version of the ''Denzimen'' (since the full name of that team was '''''Denshi (Electronic)''' Sentai Denziman''), but not for the ''Maskmen''.

* When Gosei recruits the rangers in the first half, he chooses Troy as the Red Ranger, who has a dragon motif. That isn't what my problem is; it's what he immediately says afterwards: "And like the dragon, you will serve as the team's leader" - ignoring for a second that there's [[Main/TheDragon a trope by the same name]], since that example is villainous...dragons are solitary creatures. Why would you turn to someone who's solitary to be a team leader?

*** Even the Space Ranger powers are from KO-35.

** Given how often, they employ SealedEvilInACan, it's usually the case the specific season's ranger team, or at least the mentor/organization had a direct prior relation with the season's villain army. This is true for Time Force, Wild Force, Ninja Storm, Mystic Force, Jungle Fury, and Samurai. It's sort of true for Lightspeed since the government knew the city was on top of the monster castle and planned for it, specifically. Dino Thunder was Tommy dealing with his mad scientist phase. Lost Galaxay was in space, SPD is in the future, and RPM is another dimension. Really Overdrive, is the only case where the previous relationship didn't exist in any form.

** While it could be time constraints or maybe not wanting to take too many, that does raise another question: If the goal is to seek out the most powerful wild zord...why not go after the Gorilla wild zord instead? It's been clearly established that it's more powerful than the Red Lion wild zord, and it is still around; surely it wouldn't be any harder to tame than the Red Lion wild zord.

* 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.

**** I do have to wonder: why didn't they just let the actors wear their own clothing as long as it was appropriate for kids and there were no logos? Actually, on second thought, allowing them to wear shirts with various bands and musicians on them might have actually been a good idea, since it would have given us a bit more insight into the characters.
