* VideoInsideFilmOutside: Saban shot the inside scenes with the American actors on video. When it cuts to the Japanese footage, shot by Toei on 16mm film, the quality difference is really noticeable.

* AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle: Practically standard for a kids show in the 90's. A particularly popular one had David Yost and Amy Jo Johnson as themselves doing a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pSAci0Wg1iw "Reality Check,"]] demonstrating that television is entirely fiction and what they do on the show is just for entertainment. They showed that it can be hard to tell the difference between fake guns and real guns, and also that while Billy was a gawky nerd, David Yost was a skilled gymnast.

* ArtisticLicenseHistory: Er, guys? 18th century Britain colonized the ''east'' coast. Like New York, New Jersey and the Carolinas. Not the west coast, like California. Real life wrote this plot, though. They were stuck in Australia because of script and scheduling problems with the movie. But the TV episode schedule caught up to them. So the solution? Film a couple of episodes where the Rangers as students holiday in Australia. While the production crew was in Australia as well, they filmed a couple of episodes in a historical village just outside of Sydney, which gave us colonial Angel Grove. ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' has never attempted to be accurate in anything, science, history, physics, etc.

* AwesomeButImpractical: Serpentera in a nutshell. Big enough to stop on regular Megazords, powerful enough to destroy a planet...but so difficult to actually fuel that Zedd could barely use it.

* LuckyTranslation: The switch to ''Dairanger'' mecha for season two could have been a problem because the ''Dairanger'' didn't have a Black Ranger but a Green Ranger in its place. The Green ''Dairanger'' Lion zord coloring just happened to be about fifty percent black with a couple of gold and green highlights, making it plausible as a Black Ranger's zord as well. Similarly the White Ranger's suit design was close enough stylistically (animal theme helmet in particular) to match the ''Zyuranger'' costumes, any other suit would have made too big of a contrast. ''Kakuranger'' had a female White Ranger in place of the Pink Ranger, but whose Zord was white with pink highlights. Finally, while ''Kakuranger'' lacked a proper sixth ranger, it did have an an additional white mecha capable of fighting independently or combining with the megazords.

* MagicMusic: The Green Ranger's Dragon Dagger (occasionally called the Dragon Flute). Its tunes could summon the Dragonzord and also seemed to be an activation for the golden "Dragonshield."

The new enemies gathering around Rita and Zedd prove to be too much for the Rangers, and their Power Coins are destroyed. Desperate, they go off in search of the legendary creator of the coins, an aloof sage named Ninjor, who forges them new Power Coins based on modern creatures and the art of ninjitsu (but still retains the old suits and weapons). This is where they start using ''Kakuranger'' Zord and monster footage.

* ButtMonkey: For the half-dozen or so stories before their departure, Jason, Trini and Zack have a habit of repeatedly being immobilized or mind-controlled by whatever monster Lord Zedd has sent that week. This was likely due to RealLifeWritesThePlot (and possibly an element of TakeThat), as the actors who played those three Rangers had quit the series, making it impossible to show them unmorphed at all outside of StockFootage, and forcing the producers to rely on sound-alikes for any dialogue they did have while morphed.



* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: David Fielding was in the opening credits sequence for the first season of the show for his role as Zordon. This is the only time in the show's history when a voice actor is credited in the opening. Usually, if you play an on-camera human or humanoid main or major recurring character, you're in the opening credits.
** He also only voiced Zordon for a short time. Only a little more than half of season 1 while Bob Manahan took over for the rest of his appearances.

Added DiffLines:

** The early episodes tended to play up Kimberly's ValleyGirl tendencies a lot more, to the point where she was practically TheDitz. This stopped at around the time that Tommy entered the series.
** The first season characterised Bulk and Skull as a pair of idiotic school bullies, somewhat like the young Biff Tannen from ''Film/BackToTheFuture''. While this is the characterisation that most viewers likely remember, it actually only accounts for a sixth of their overall time on the show (or an eighth, if you count the seasons where Bulk appeared without Skull); starting with the second season they were portrayed as being bumbling and occasionally selfish, but on the whole good-natured.

* ShoutOut: In one scene in Season 3, the Rangers (in their Ninja Ranger outfits rather than their Ranger suits) decide to go all Franchise/SuperSentai, doing a team roll call (which IIRC they'd never done before - all previous uses of roll call footage had been adapted into either different speeches or Zord calling) followed up with a team pose - specifically, the signature pose of ''Series/DaiSentaiGoggleFive''!

** Another one had them doing one of the poses from ''Series/KousokuSentaiTurboranger'', which had a ''very'' similar setup to this show (in terms of "teenagers with attitude" and all).

* ActionGirl: Trini and Kimberly definitely, established as perfectly capable of taking care themselves from the very first episode, and they're even more competent than one of the males, Billy. Also Aisha, who is introduced as a participant in a ninja tournament, and later, of the winning team. While they're not as fierce or quite as overtly badass as a [[Series/PowerRangersTimeForce number]] [[Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge of]] [[Series/PowerRangersWildForce future]] [[Series/PowerRangersSPD female]] [[Series/PowerRangersRPM Rangers]], the trope still applies.
