The 17th season of the ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' franchise, ''RPM'' used footage from ''Series/EngineSentaiGoOnger.'' In an alternate present to the main Rangerverse, the Venjix computer virus has taken over nearly all of the Earth's technological systems and built robotic forces to subjugate mankind. Humanity's last stronghold is the city of Corinth, which is protected by a force field dome, as well as its own elite team of Power Rangers that take down whatever raids make it through the shield. But Venjix technology is continually advancing, and without more forces even the Rangers may not be able to hold on for much longer...

* YouLookFamiliar: Again subverted, again Kelson Henderson, being unrecognisable.. again. Just for one episode ("Blitz") this time.
** Rewatch ''[[Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm Ninja Storm]]'', specifically Cam's trip to the past. Apparently, Colonel Truman (or a near-identical relative) used to run the Wind Ninja Academy.
*** He's also the voice of [[Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder Zeltrax]]. And all of the [[EliteMook Orangehead]] [[Series/PowerRangersSPD Krybots]].

''RPM'' was, quite simply, a make or break season for the franchise. Creator/{{Disney}} was prepared to cancel it after Bruce Kalish left the show, but Bandai stepped in to give their CashCowFranchise at least one more season. Still, [[ScrewedByTheNetwork Disney shunted the show -- including reruns of past seasons -- off their cable channels]] (particularly their new Creator/DisneyXD rebranding) and onto Creator/{{ABC}}, [[ScrewedByTheNetwork where it was subject to pre-empting for sports.]] Adding to the conflict, the first Executive Producer Eddie Guzelian was fired midway through the season over "creative differences" with Disney. Former ''Rangers'' writer and producer Judd Lynn, who was a big part of the series' improving during the Creator/{{Saban}} days, came in to replace him. Filming took place in UsefulNotes/NewZealand, with a cast of mostly Kiwi and Australian actors.

* IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight: Subverted. Ziggy, Mr. GenreSavvy, approaches Dillon under control of the virus, and says that his friendship power is so strong, Dillon wouldn't dare hit him. Turns out he would.

** Surely in Ziggy's case that's just being GenreSavvy.

* {{Expy}}: The [=ValveMax=] Megazord is made of [[Series/PowerRangersWildForce a crocodile, a shark (we think), and a wolf]] (likely a coincidence, as the latter two were an orca and a dog in ''Go-Onger''). And the Road Attack Zord seems to resemble the [[Series/PowerRangersZeo Warrior Wheel]]; even its finishing move is almost the same.
