-->--'''[[ByThePowerOfGreyskull Morphing call]]''', ''Power Rangers RPM''

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...

''RPM'' was, quite simply, a make-or-break season for the franchise. 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 ABC, where it was subject to preempting 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 Saban days, came in to replace him. Filming took place in New Zealand, with a cast of mostly Kiwi and Australian actors.

The season made several references to series tropes and past Ranger seasons, particularly in finally defining the MetaOrigin that's been present since day one. It also scaled back the excessive CallingYourAttacks and StuffBlowingUp that had gotten out of hand in the last few seasons, as well as throwing in a healthy dose of LampshadeHanging (particularly, hanging 'shades ''on'' the attack-calling and explosions).

''RPM'' originally was the end of the franchise, with no plans to make more episodes. Disney eventually announced they would continue airing the show, but a ReCut version of ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' as opposed to new material. It was only a few months after the series ended that Saban announced that they had reacquired the franchise and had begun work on ''Series/PowerRangersSamurai''.

''RPM'' would later have a team up with ''Samurai'' called ''Clash of the Red Rangers''. Only Scott appears, and even then he doesn't demorph for the entire movie. The [[Series/PowerRangersMegaforce Super Mega Rangers]] visited Corinth in the second half of ''Super Megaforce'', but looked completely different due to using ''[[KaizokuSentaiGokaiger Gokaiger]]'' footage.

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 (AintItCoolNews, DreadCentral, Bloody-Disgusting) and currently holds a 78% fresh rating on the Rotten Tomatoes website.

* EnemyEatsYourLunch: One of Dillon's {{Establishing Character Moment}}s. While a prison inmate is intimidating Ziggy, Dillon helps himself to lime Jell-O that the inmate had just stated was off-limits, and when confronted makes clear that he doesn't care about any threats they make. And then he wins the ensuing fight and starts to eat in peace.
