** Also, though the Rangers can get into a dire situation even at Zord level, the zords usually convey this feeling of invincibility - even when fighting a losing battle, it's usually a "more hit sparks than usual" situation. Not to mention the fact that they are (a) quite sentient, and (b) the rebuilt forms of the original Dinozords. This is also before pretty much any season finale might have zords blowing up. These almighty living machines who'd been as much a part of this world as the heroes themselves from day one, who'd survived ''two'' "oh god the zords are being destroyed" moments (Green With Evil, where they got better once contact with Zordon was restored, and The Mutiny, where they were transformed into the Thunderzords) were just falling apart, section by section, with the Rangers, Zordon, and Alpha helpless to do anything.

* Cole's parents' FamilyUnfriendlyDeath, as shown in flashbacks in ''Wild Force'' was something that [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar shouldn't have gotten past the censors]]. Saying "kill" just won't fly, but having vines assault and grow through the bodies of two terrified humans is hunky-dory so long as no actual blood is shown. Allegedly, writers told Fox standards and practices the parents were going to come back just fine. The show was in the middle of transferring to Disney's control, and standards and practices folks there did not see earlier episodes and merely assumed they were dead the whole time. * ''Ninja Storm'' has a cyborg villain suffer melting at the hands of another, treacherous villain. His half-slagged body is seen in a rare exception to PR's EverythingFades tendency. His executioner quips that he was "[[BondOneLiner having a little meltdown]]".

Allegedly, writers told Fox standards and practices the parents were going to come back just fine. fine - rumor has it that had it not gotten past the radar, Toxica and Jindrax would have turned out to be the parents (though that doesn't jibe with them having known the original Master Org from 3,000 years ago and ''immediately'' suspected something wasn't right about the current one, so don't quote us on this one.) The show was in the middle of transferring to Disney's control, and standards and practices folks there did not see earlier episodes and merely assumed they were dead the whole time. * ''Ninja Storm'' has a cyborg villain suffer melting at the hands of another, treacherous villain. Forget a SwordSparks-inducing strike followed by DefeatEqualsExplosion or DisappearsIntoLights - we watch him incinerated by a stream of flame. His half-slagged body is seen in a rare exception to PR's EverythingFades tendency. His executioner quips that he was "[[BondOneLiner having a little meltdown]]".

* In the final arc of ''Mystic Force'', the Master has been incubating in the body of one of his followers, who has had a change of heart and intends to spend eternity in the "sleeping lake" to prevent his return. Just when it looks like he's about to succeed, he's prevented from reaching the lake by another villain. The Rangers, and the audience, are treated to the sight of the Master's hatching from him: parts of his body swell before tentacles burst out of him from within, causing bluish ichor to fly. Finally, his body bursts apart and falls about the Master's heretofore-unseen true form like an empty sack. Then, the Master promptly subjects one of the heroes to MindRape, making him experience his own death at the Master's hands/tentacles. That scene was in [[Series/MahouSentaiMagiranger its source series]] as well.

* In the final arc of ''Mystic Force'', the Master has been incubating in the body of one of his followers, who has had a change of heart and intends to spend eternity in the "sleeping lake" to prevent his return. (That's worrying enough - sleeping forever, neither alive nor dead, to keep the EldritchAbomination inside of you dormant.) Just when it looks like he's about to succeed, he's prevented from reaching the lake by another villain.

* In ***Mack's breakdown in following episodes, too. The way he kept putting himself in harm's way and declaring himself expendable, deliberately pushing the Megazord (piloting it solo this time) toward overload so it would explode in a TakingYouWithMe moment, and again in the final arc of ''Mystic Force'', the Master has been incubating battle deliberately overclocking his armor (the Sentinel Knight, Zordon-like ancient warrior/sage, shouting for him to stop, even after it had appeared much earlier in the body of one of his followers, who has had a change of heart and intends series that to spend eternity in him the "sleeping lake" Rangers were just a means to prevent his return. Just when an end) it looks like he's about was clear [[DeathSeeker what he was trying to succeed, he's prevented from reaching do]]. Apparently even if you can NeverSayDie, you can have the lake by main hero become outright, explicitly suicidal. (Like the Stingwingers basically being made into suicide bombing terrorists, this is another villain. The Rangers, and the audience, are treated to the sight of the Master's hatching from him: parts of the AdultFear column - a teenager being DrivenToSuicide by an identity crisis his body swell before tentacles burst out of father can do little to help him from within, causing bluish ichor to fly.

* Ecliptor was turned **The scariest part is when Rita causes Titanus to ash by Zordon, despite him being a NobleDemon instead sink into the earth. Titanus is the strongest of the Zords, unstoppable. Nothing stands up to the Ultrazord, which is pretty much "the other zords ride its back." While it doesn't have much in the way of facial expressions, somehow those limited movements, combined with its roar and eye-lights, convey the ''pure terror'' that the invincible machine is in as the ground devours it with only a CardCarryingVillain.''gesture'' from Rita.

* The very premise of ''Series/PowerRangersRPM'', given the history of the show: it's set AfterTheEnd, thus making all the previous series a bad case of ShootTheShaggyDog, although WordOfGod says ''RPM'' takes place outside of the canon.

Still, ''someone'' with a helmet similar to the Red Overdrive Ranger didn't fare so well protecting that ruined city against the forces of Venjix.)

* How could anyone forget the time Tommy was kidnapped from the Power Chamber back in Power Rangers Zeo? He was taken by prince Gaskett and basically mind-raped and brainwashed to think the power rangers were evil. There's a scene with Tommy and a robotic monster sitting in a dark chamber on two chairs that I am very surprised made it past the censors. Don't believe me? Take a look. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=COMq9_RhPS4 ** Also note that while Tommy had been brainwashed before, this time it was much more graphic and drawn-out, complete with a machine over his (still helmeted) head, a dark chamber with a single light over the chair he was restrained on, while he was making sounds which clearly indicate pain.
