* IntercontinuityCrossover: With ''[[Series/NinjaTurtlesTheNextMutation Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation]]'', also owned by Saban Entertainment. While the episode is considered very out of place and most people [[FanonDiscontinuity disown its existence]] (not to mention that Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird [[CanonDiscontinuity officially disown]] ''Next Mutation''), it is a bit of a GuiltyPleasure just from the inherent coolness of a crossover.
** It's the Power Rangers teaming up with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, how could that not be awesome? (Next Mutation and Venus aside) Plus it has a scene where Elgar gets kicked. Possibly one of the best scenes in the entire series.

* EasilyForgiven: Zhane gets a invitation to go on a date with Astronema (who is usually trying to kill them, being a villain and all). He prepares to go out and meet her while the other 5 Rangers are losing a battle against a monster. He walks past the bridge of the ship, seeing the video screen showing his friends in danger, and he still tries to sneak past so Alpha won't bring him into the fight. But he gets noticed and has to go save the day which causes him to miss the date until he was late enough Astronema was furious with him. In the end, the other rangers are fully aware of the fact he tried to date the woman who constantly tries to have them all die, and they just try to convince him maybe she'll change her mind and go out with him again. It's not clear if they know he'd rather see her then save their lives, but still...

* OutOfContextEavesdropping: Andros and Cassie hear Alpha tell Zhane he "Doesn't have much time". They jump to the conclusion Zhane is dying, but it's really about his morphing power running out in 2 an a half minutes.

* BadassGrandma: Ashley's grandma may be overly attentive and even somewhat annoying, but when the fate of the city is on the line, you can count on herů to drive a sedan straight into seven-foot tall monster during a battle with the Power Rangers.

** Adam Park, briefly, in the episode "Always A Chance." He becomes the Black Power Ranger one last time, using his original Power Morpher (the one damaged when Rito destroyed the Thunderzords) in spite of Alpha 6's warning that morphing could kill him. To fans' delight, he first declares that it's Morphing Time, morpher in hand, and then calls out "MASTODON!"

To fans' delight, he first declares that it's Morphing Time, morpher in hand, and then calls out "MASTODON!""MASTODON!" In a meta sense, this helps explain team ups that happen in later series, as there is the implication that those powers could be repaired.



* DeusExMachina: In the finale, [[BigGood Zordon]] [[spoiler: pulls off an ICannotSelfTerminate suicide bomber attack that kills all the villains, transforms the redeemable ones into HumanAliens free of the taint of evil magic, and brings the red ranger's dead sister back to life after a few minute delay]], neatly tying up all the loose ends of the series.

* DeusExMachina: In the finale, [[BigGood Zordon]] [[spoiler: pulls off an ICannotSelfTerminate suicide bomber attack explains to Andros that rupturing his tube would end the battle, but also that [[ICannotSelfTerminate he cannot do it himself and needs Andros to effectively kill him]]. As it turns out, doing so kills all the villains, transforms the redeemable ones into monstrous villains and footsoldiers, purify RubberForeheadAliens and HumanAliens free of the taint of evil magic, and brings does so while all existing heroes (Aquitarian Rangers, Gold Ranger of Triforia, Phantom Ranger, Blue Senturian) are on the red ranger's dead sister back to life after a few minute delay]], ropes if not actually captured]], neatly tying up all the loose ends of the series.series. As evidence that TropesAreNotBad, the sheer weight of what happened tends to overshadow the fact it is a Deus ex Machina.



* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Andros infiltrated an Alliance meeting in the first episode, was discovered and had to fight his way out. That's how you introduce a character. It also serves as an effective introduction to the new tone of the series.

It Astronema is also serves in the same scene, as a coldly calculating villain contrasting the LargeHam hysterics of Rita and Divatox, and she is smart enough to identify the cloaked figure, Andros, as a spy. Both serve as an effective introduction to the new tone of the series.

* HeelFaceTurn:[[spoiler:Astronema, aka Andros' sister Karone. If Dark Specter hadn't intervened, pretty much everything bad that happened in the second half of the series would have been avoided, due to the BigBad having switched sides. Well, maybe. See NiceJobFixingItVillain, below.]]

** This trope is all over the place in this series.[[spoiler: The Psycho Rangers' infighting was really the ''only'' reason they didn't defeat the rangers. Ecliptor and Darkonda constantly ruin each other's plans, culminating in Ecliptor "destroying" Darkonda and causing him to lose one of his lives. In the GrandFinale, Darkonda betrays [[GreaterScopeVillain Dark Specter]], who was already weakened due to Astronema using the PsychoRangers to drain his power, leading to them [[TakingYouWithMe destroying each other]] and thus saving the universe.]] Really, the Space Rangers probably could have just sat back and waited for the villains to take each other out.

** ... and when Andros finally does give him some grief about this several episodes later, it's only because he'd found out that Zhane was technically [[MySisterIsOffLimits dating his sister]].
