The plot of this introductory episode has a strong tendency to be one of the coping-with-new-powers or power-manifestation scenarios like HowDoIShotWeb, DieOrFly, or FallingIntoTheCockpit. May overlap with FirstEpisodeSpoiler if the powers are revealed toward the end of the episode. Compare / contrast SecondHourSuperpower, InMediasRes.

** It probably doesn't help that in ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' (what ''PowerRangers'' is based on; costumed fight sequences are frequently dubbed over), the main characters rarely have additional powers, leading to the civilian-superhero power divide.

* ''PowerRangers' : When the characters have super powers in their civilian form, they always showcase them using their powers just to show they thy have them. The trope name is particularly apt here, since the out-of-costume powers tend to be used heavily in the first few episodes and then pretty much vanish thereafter.
