The first season produced by Haim Saban after taking the license back from Creator/{{Disney}}, it's become clear is that Saban was [[FirstInstallmentWins banking on nostalgia for the original]] ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers''. They [[RearrangeTheSong revived the classic theme song]] and referenced it in the morph call, and they got Paul Schrier to reprise his role as Bulk, half of the original series' ThoseTwoGuys. The approach appeared to pay off where it counted, as ''Samurai'' did pull in solid ratings, unlike ''Jungle Fury'' and ''RPM'', meaning it would get renewed -- Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} is airing ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' until at least the year 2016.

Due to some oddities with how Nickolodeon handles episode orders, the show and future seasons are split into two and the second half of this series is branded as ''Power Rangers Super Samurai''.

** CombiningMecha: The Folding Zordsmain team shares the Samurai Megazord, and it can then join with the Clawzord to form the Claw Armor Megazord. The secondary zords can combine, too; the Beetle, Tiger, and Swordfish form the Samurai Battlewing and those three plus the Octozord are the Samurai Battle Cannon. Finally, all of the above mecha can combine with the Bull Zord and optionally the Shark Zord for the Samurai Gigazord.

* SuperMode: Literally called "Super Mode", with a long white vest over the regular Ranger suit. There's also a red version called "Shark Attack Mode", and both of these have their own Mega Mode versions. (The Mega Modes and Shogun Mode look like this, but since they're not actually used for fighting, they don't count.)
** Jayden uses the Shogun Mode at the final episode, though.

** "Kevin's Choice" is about Kevin having to accept that his being a Ranger meant putting certain life things on hold for the greater good, (in this case, a potential swimming tournament) as [[SecretIdentity his presence in such a public situation]] could [[UnfortunateImplications put the citizenry in danger]]. The ending of the Episode however involves Kevin accepting this necessity.... and then competing in the tournament anyway after the MOTW is defeated, doing the exact thing the Episode had been warning him against the entire time without any justification, (Aside from the current threat being removed, but the fact that [[FridgeHorror the show has used multiple MOTWs in one Episode before....]]) rendering the whole Episode's conflict '''completely pointless'''.

Kevin essentially gets off scot-free for making the same mistakes.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* InformedFlaw: At the end of the first season, Jayden implies that he [[BloodKnight somewhat enjoyed his duel with Deker]]. However, not only is there no indication of this during the duel in question, but Jayden all but ignores this implication for the rest of the show. Despite a CallBack to these feelings made by Deker before their [[spoiler: final fight]], [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot It's in no way built upon for the entirety of the battle, the one place where it ought to be relevant]].

* AxCrazy: [[spoiler: Arachnitor]], post-mutation.
* AesopAmnesia: Due to the CompressedAdaptation involved in translating Shinken Red's characterization to Samurai Red, Jayden is forced to essentially learn to accept [[TeamSpirit being part of a team]] twice in a row. [[note]] Shinkenger involved Takeru having to accept applying teamwork to his future battles alongside the others, with the entire point of his characterization from then on involving him having to balance sidling up to the idea with some subtle BloodKnight tendencies; leaving him flawed enough to have to re-learn it. In Samurai, Jayden acknowledges this moral and accepts it the first time it's a major issue, and (minus a Handwave, all but ignores the BloodKnight angle completely....giving no reason for him to learn it a second time.[[/note]]
