%%* AdventurerArchaeologist
%%* AirplaneArms: Miratrix
%%* ArtifactCollectionAgency
%%* ArtificialHuman: [[spoiler:Mack]]

to:

%%* AdventurerArchaeologist
%%*
* AdventurerArchaeologist: Hartford is one of these. Consequently, the Rangers themselves spend the bulk of the season generally following in his footsteps. This unique combination of BigDamnHeroes and AdventurerArchaeologist tends to result in a lot of property damage to ancient temples/exotic locales, not just their CityOfAdventure.
*
AirplaneArms: Miratrix
%%* ArtifactCollectionAgency
%%*
Miratrix seems to have pulled her Airplane Arms straight from ''Anime/{{Naruto}}''.
* ArtifactCollectionAgency: Though the rangers are only interested in one specific set of artifacts, the Corona Aurora and its jewels, and only pursue other artifacts when they can give clues to the jewels' locations.
*
ArtificialHuman: [[spoiler:Mack]][[spoiler:Mack, built by Hartford to be the son he never could get. What this says about Hartford is up to the viewer.]]



%%** Who are, notably, not actually dead, per se. But they pulled a HeelFaceTurn and he didn't, so they're dead to ''him''.
%%*** Well, their HeelFaceTurn was forced onto them by Zordon's good energy. So, technically, the good guys "killed" who they once were, and what they were clearly like when Thrax was born, given his appearance.

%%* BigFancyHouse: the Hartford mansion

to:

%%* * BigFancyHouse: the The Hartford mansionmansion has a [[CoolGarage Zord bay]] beneath the house, 27 bathrooms on the first floor alone, and yet he can't make a security system to keep the villains out.
** Maybe the sheer size IS the reason it's such a nightmare to secure.



%%* TheBroCode: Called "Man law!" in "Both Sides Now"

to:

%%* * TheBroCode: Called Will makes a [[spoiler:fake]] FaceHeelTurn and joins Kamdor and Miratrix. Dax is especially upset... that Will's with his ex. (Miratrix and Dax dated before she revealed she was running a HoneyTrap.) While the girls exchange a look, Dax and Mack explain with "Man law!" in "Both Sides Now"law!"



%%* CoolCrown: The Corona Aurora.

to:

%%* * CoolCrown: The Corona Aurora.Aurora and its five scattered jewels serve as the MacGuffins that everyone's after, granting incredible power if they're reunited.



%%* DisneyDeath: Mack. Appropriate since the series is made by Creator/{{Disney}}.

to:

%%* * DisneyDeath: Mack. Appropriate since [[spoiler:In the series is made by Creator/{{Disney}}.season finale, Mack uses his full power on Flurious using the Corona Auorora and dies. Sentinel Knight used it to turn Mack into a human]].



%%* ElaborateUndergroundBase

to:

%%* ElaborateUndergroundBase* ElaborateUndergroundBase: The series commonly does a cutaway to the base by showing the aboveground mansion, and then dropping the camera via CGI through several layers of planetary crust. For added hijinks, the Rangers are implied to be sliding down kilometer-length fireman poles to reach said base. And on top of that, they have ''three'' HumongousMecha and a CoolShip hidden inside.



%%* EvilerThanThou

to:

%%* EvilerThanThou* EvilerThanThou: Four villain factions fight each other as well as the Rangers: Flurious, Moltor, Kandor and the Fear Cats.
** Though this is more played as an EnemyCivilWar until [[spoiler: Flurious kills his brother Moltor when the latter is beaten by the Power Rangers]] and then proceeds to [[spoiler: Collect all the last {{MacGuffin}}s]] and becomes the series' BigBad.



%%* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Norg.

to:

%%* * HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Norg.Norg. One of the bad guys barges in and takes over his arctic home, and Norg is just so happy to meet a new friend and would you like a snow cone? This dynamic lasts all season until the villain finally orders his Mooks to "take care of" both Norg and a DistressedDamsel - said damsel has to spell out the TroubleEntendre to Norg before he gets it.



%%* JumpedAtTheCall: Mack

to:

%%* * JumpedAtTheCall: MackMack jumps at the call to become Red Ranger. This is against his father's wishes, as said father was originally going to be Red himself before his son snuck the morpher out from under him. This is notable within PR because 95% of Rangers over the course of the franchise either [[RefusalOfTheCall refuse the call]] initially or accept with IJustWantToBeNormal undertones.



%%* LinkedListClueMethodology

to:

%%* LinkedListClueMethodology* LinkedListClueMethodology: FridgeLogic kicks in though, due to there being five major artifacts the Rangers must find, which they manage to do every six or seven episodes, at which point they just coincidentally find info about the next treasure without any sort of previous clue, leading to the newest linked list. They never find artifacts in the wrong order, not matching up? The Rangers and the ''four'' villain organizations are ''always'' on the same trail of the same artifact leading to the same jewel at the same time?
** Maybe the Sentinel Knight didn't anticipate so many different factions going after the crown at the same time? he probably only expected only one group to do it.



%%* MasterOfDisguise: Spencer
%%** LatexPerfection: Gets ridiculous[[note]]ly awesome[[/note]] when he impersonates ''Ronny''.

to:

%%* [[TheMountainsOfIllinois * TheMountainsOfIllinois: The Mountains Of Florida]]Florida Everglades has mountains. As does the rest of the world, thanks to filming in New Zealand.



%%* MyBiologicalClockIsTicking: Male example with ''Hartford''

to:

%%* * MyBiologicalClockIsTicking: Male example with ''Hartford''''Hartford''. He decides his clock is ticking, and so [[spoiler:''he builds himself a RidiculouslyHumanRobot teenage son'' (Mack, who, incidentally, becomes the team's Red Ranger)]]. Being a childrens' show, why he doesn't use his ungodly amounts of money to get a gold-digger wife is never explored, but it at least gets a lampshade:
-->'''Andrew:''' I was too busy with my work to find the right woman.\\
'''[[spoiler:Mack]]:''' Why didn't you make one of those, too!?



%%* TheOneTrueSequence: Used and abused.

to:

%%* TheOneTrueSequence: Used * OneTrueSequence: Seen in nearly every episode. The Rangers and abused.four factions of enemies are participating in a giant treasure hunt for five mystical jewels, with each individual jewel having another half dozen minor artifacts pointing the way to it in a linear clue-based system... but none of the five groups ever search for different artifacts than each other. Ostensibly, this was because the 32 episode season would've been done in 6 or 7 if they'd all gone after one jewel each.



%%* PinocchioSyndrome: [[spoiler:Mack]]

to:

%%* * PinocchioSyndrome: [[spoiler:Mack]][[spoiler:Mack about five seconds after finding out he ''wasn't'' [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots human to begin with]].

%%* RoboticReveal
one. Hartford had apparently decided that his biological clock was ticking, and for reasons unknown he decided to get one from a machine shop rather than a womb. Neither the robot in question nor the viewers were aware of his robotic nature until he picked up a computer virus]].
* RoboticReveal: [[spoiler:Mack is revealed to be a robot built by Hartford after a computer virus that infects the Rangers' base afflicts him as well, and he's forced to be taken off-line and disassembled to get at the problem. Needless to say, he wasn't very happy about it]].

%%*
rely on others. We can imagine this particular aesop going [[BrokenAesop badly astray]] if Will had remembered that Mack is superhumanly strong and could have lifted Will easily. The only reasonable conclusion is that Mack was making it hard (and endangering Will's life) just to teach him a lesson. Or that the writers forgot, which, frankly, is a lot more likely.
*
TeenGenius: RoseRose was this in the backstory, but by 18 years old, she was already out of Harvard and working in a university in London. If she's 18, she's technically still a teenager.



%%* ToTheBatpole
%%* ToMakeALongStoryShort: Bridge in "Once A Ranger"

to:

%%* ToTheBatpole
%%*
* ToTheBatpole: The mansion has the standard poles leading from the mansion to the underground base. (And it seems to be a very, very long way down, going by establishment shots.) Suiting up on the way down is optional.
*
ToMakeALongStoryShort: Bridge in "Once A Ranger"Ranger" sums up where he's been since the end of ''S.P.D.'':
-->Oh, uh, yeah, well, long story short, our mentor who's, well, a dog, got promoted to head of SPD which was run by a bird but he retired to Miami, and Sky got promoted and I got promoted. That's why I'm the Red Ranger, or [[TimeTravelTenseTrouble will be]].



%%* WrenchWench: Ronny

to:

%%* * WrenchWench: RonnyRonny's tendency for [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar practically]] ''[[GettingCrapPastTheRadar fondling]]'' [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar new weaponry]] [[{{Nerdgasm}} with an awed smile on her face]] makes one wonder how the show stayed TV-Y7. Of course, she ''had'' to be the first to test out any new gadget. And apparently, being a race car driver who can work on her own cars has left her qualified to work on [[HumongousMecha giant robots]].



* YouLookFamiliar: Subverted; Kelson Henderson returns yet again, as confirmed in the opening credits, but thanks to the Yeti suit and yet another vocal characterization (he's Norg), it's impossible to recognize him.



%%* YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle: Or rather, Your Jewel Is In Another Location.

to:

%%* * YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle: Or rather, Your Jewel Is In Another Location.Every time the rangers think they've found the next jewel, it turns out to only be the next clue, which led to the next, and the next, etc. Of course, the clues are also often powerful devices on their own.
