Evil, GenreSavvy ninja Lothor wants to conquer the Earth, and his first step is to eliminate all of the secret ninja academies that would rise up to stop him. Unfortunately for him, three of the students at the Wind Ninja Academy decided to be Good Samaritans that day and were fixing some old couple's car instead of going to class. Shane, Tori and Dustin are widely recognized as the worst students in the school, despite potential and good intentions, but now they're our only hope. Assisted by their Sensei, who has been turned into a guinea pig by Lothor, and his snarky son Cam, they have a long way to go.

''Ninja Storm'' is considered a divisive season. For many years a fan favorite due to its comedic atmosphere and cool unmorphed fight scenes, it's been unseated by later, more serious seasons. Look no further than BigBad Lothor for a demonstration: half the fandom thinks he's hilarious, GenreSavvy, and a terrific villain for his final arc gambit, while the other half thinks he's a lame, bumbling idiot who can't stand up next to the likes of Mesogog.

It ends up saving [[ThoseTwoBadGuys Marah & Kapri]] in the end, because [[spoiler:Cam is a hell of a lot more merciful than Uncle Lothor!]]

* GenreSavvy: Lothor is throughout the series but notably in "Sensei Switcheroo" when Marah and Kapri ask what to do after the monster of the week is defeated small. "How long have you been working here? [[MakeMyMonsterGrow You make him big, okay? They blow them up and we make them big, it happens everytime.]] How could you not get that part?"

* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Enforced for the first time since Power Rangers started as in previous seasons they always [[[TwoGirlsToATeam gender swapped a male yellow]] to avoid invoking this trope. But despite the painfully obvious decision to swap Navy Thunder Blue to match the Blue Ninja Storm Ranger being female the show keeps it as one girl to five guys just like in Sentai.

* [[ThoseTwoBadGuys Those Two Bad Girls]]: Marah and Kapri. Sure, they ''do'' try to be more than just that [[spoiler:even going as far as engineering Shimazu's downfall]], but from there to full-on [[TheStarscream Starscreaming]], they were a ''really'' long way.

** That big scary Megazord that Lothor rides in the finale? That's the BigBad of ''Hurricanger''.

** That big scary Megazord that Lothor rides Zurgane in the sentai was actually a robotic suit piloted by a small alien bug thing inside his head; this was never shown here (outside of the action figure, anyway).
** The Lothorzord from
the finale? That's the BigBad of ''Hurricanger''.
