* BatmanGambit: Dr. K does one in the episode named "Doctor K" appropriately enough. [[spoiler: The rangers need another Flux Overthruster to combine the High Octane and ValveMax Megazords. The problem is they don't know how to make one. Dr. K brings a cloning device from the ReflexBot that attacked earlier into the laboratory predicting Tenaya would be inside and would by accident clone the Flux Overtruster just in time to save the Rangers by letting them make the Zenith Megazord. And she had her violin connected to giant fans to blow Tenaya out of the base.]]

The are 12 Zords in this show. It takes three to form a single Megazord, they have 4 Megazords that do this, and they can all turn into a single unit called the RPM Ultrazord. So we have RuleOfThree multiplied by FourIsDeath taken to its logical conclusion.

* HumongousMecha: The RPM Ultrazord, which is twice as large as any grown attackbot. What do you expect when a third of the pieces are a whale-jet, and a Mammoth-train with [[StockDinosaurs T-rex and Triceratops]] cars?

** CombiningMecha: This season features four three-piece combiners: the original three Rangers make the High Octane Megazord, Dillon and Ziggy pilot the [=ValveMax=] Megazord, Gem and Gemma the Mach Megazord, and the Paleozords make up the Paleomax Megazord. They can then sequentially combine into bigger combinations: the High Octane and the [=ValveMax=] make the Zenith Megazord, plus the Mach is the [=SkyRev=] Megazord, plus the Paleomax is the RPM Ultrazord.

** We also, once again, get the LongLostSibling [[PowerRangersInSpace plot]] [[PowerRangersLightspeedRescue point]] where one of them was made to be evil before making a HeelFaceTurn. It especially bears a striking resemblance to the Andros-Astronema/Karone dynamic.
** [[spoiler:Yet another DisneyDeath, followed by a BackFromTheDead trope, happens to one of the heroes -- in this case, it happened a certain pair of Rangers (see further below) in this season... It was, if anything, just as shocking and heartbreaking as a certain Ranger death we were [[PowerRangersLostGalaxy first]] exposed to, regardless of what you may think of those two.]]

* GenreSavvy: Tenaya 7 and General Crunch show signs of this. Tenaya sometimes crosses into DangerouslyGenreSavvy.
** Ziggy [[OnlySaneMan runs Genre Savvy U,]] with DangerouslyGenreSavvy Flynn as his top student.
** Dr. K gets a moment of genre savviness when she points out that Summer likes both "the boy next door" and "the tortured and mysterious bad boy" in "Brother's Keeper". She gets one again in "In Or Out" when she brings up the fact that she's their mentor.

''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) [[ScrewedByTheNetwork and onto Creator/{{ABC}}, 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.

Several ''RPM'' actors, writers, crew members and original producer Eddie Guzelian reunited to make a low budget indie horror movie called ''Film/BloodPunch.'' The film made its world premiere in October 2013 at the 20th Austin Film Festival, where it landed the festival's Audience Award and eventually a worldwide distribution deal. On September 1, 2015, after a limited U.S. theatrical run, ''Film/BloodPunch'' was released commercially through out the U.S. and North America, debuting as the #1 horror movie on the iTunes charts. Despite its low budget horror pedigree and Power Ranger roots, ''Film/BloodPunch'' was met with overwhelming critical praise from both traditional media (The Hollywood Reporter, Village Voice, LA Weekly, Indiewire) as well as genre specific online sites (Website/AintItCoolNews, Website/DreadCentral, Bloody-Disgusting) and currently holds a 78% fresh rating on the Website/RottenTomatoes website.
