** To a lesser extent, T.J., who said in "Passing the Torch, Part 2" that "When I was a kid, I wanted to be a Power Ranger. Think about it. I mean, the things they've accomplished for mankind. What kid wouldn't wanna grow up to be a Power Ranger?"

* AwesomeMcCoolname: The names of the Rangers' vehicles:
** Desert Thunder
** Dune Star
** Mountain Blaster
** Wind Chaser
** Red Lightning



* ForgotAboutHisPowers: Lerigot could have gotten himself out of literally all of his various perilous situations with his magic wand. But for some reason, he conveniently and bewilderingly forgets about it all throughout the film.



** CombiningMecha

to:

** CombiningMechaCombiningMecha: Downplayed compared to most series, as the Rangers get two combinations, the Turbo and Rescue Megazords, and that's it. They could mix-and-match parts between the two if needed, however, and one such mix (Red and Blue Turbozord torso, White, Green, and Yellow Rescuezord limbs) was labeled the "Turbo-Rescue Megazord".

* PinkMeansFeminine: A ''rangers'' mainstay, it was played straight with Tanya and Kat, but was subverted with the second team. Yellow Ranger Ashley was the girly fashion designer, while Cassie was a more tomboyish musician.

* AwesomeMcCoolname: All of the Rangers' zords get cool individual names: The Turbozords are Desert Thunder, Dune Star, Mountain Blaster, Wind Chaser, and Red Lightning; and the Rescuezords are Thunder Loader, Star Racer, Siren Blaster, Wind Rescue, and Lightning Fire Tamer. This also goes for their main regular-sized cars, Lightning Cruiser and Storm Blaster.



* [[ForgotAboutHisPowers Forgot About Her Powers]]: Kat, in the film. Her series [[BackStory back story]] established her as a former aspiring champion diver, with Kimberly helping her overcome her fears of diving accidents. In the movie, however, she falls off a very high cliff above a pool of water, and instead of assuming the proper diving form, Kat tries to morph and fails horribly. [[MartyStu Tommy, as usual, swoops down to save the day with a perfect dive]]. Invoked to justify a [[DamselInDistress Damsel In Distress]] moment and showcase Lerigot's [[ChekhovsSkill healing powers]].
** There are a few other justifications, Tommy intentionally dove, Kat was suffering heat stroke (she did just stop to get a drink after all, was resting and commenting on the heat), was escaping a python and then fell. Then her Zeo Morpher strap comes loose while she is falling, since they didn't know they were getting the Turbo Powers she was at a real risk of losing half of her TransformationTrinket. It's justifiable she would grab that, and finish morphing since it was right in front of her face or grab the morpher, turn around and do a three point dive which would take longer then saying four words.
** Another big one: She probably had no idea just how deep the water was. Diving into shallow water is '''incredibly''' dangerous, possibly causing severe head and neck trauma. She might have decided it would be safer to protect herself with her powers (and ''helmet,'' lets remember) than to plummet headfirst into potentially shallow or rocky water.

* GiantRobotHandsSaveLives: In "Built For Speed", the Turbo Megazord is used to save two cars that drag raced off a cliff by catching them.

* WeaksauseWeakness: Subverted, because it was a monster that was easily defeated. The villain Chromite is killed simply by putting him in a shadow to make him melt away.

Added DiffLines:

* CurbStompBattle: The fight with Goldgoyle really doesn't go well. First the Rescue Megazord is barely able to land even a single hit without getting ludicrously damaged, then the Turbo Megazord does manage to hit him, and it doesn't even hurt him, at which point Goldgoyle fills the thing full of holes.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Irony}}: When the Rescue Megazord forms, a song plays that states the Rangers are "invincible" and they don't lose. Come the end of the season and they lose, and badly.


Added DiffLines:

* MoodWhiplash: "Chase Into Space" comes right after a goofy episode about Bulk and Skull's jobs being threatened when Porto sends Piranhatrons to steal the things they're supposed to deliver, to a serious episode about Eltar coming under attack, Dimitria leaving to assist Zordon, and Justin potentially having to quit. Heck, even the fight with Goldgoyle is much more sombre than usual, with the song that plays whenever the Rescue Megazord forms being completely absent, replaced with something much more serious.

* SpacePolice: The Blue Senturion.

to:

* SpacePolice: The Blue Senturion.Senturion is apparently one of many (though obviously we never see them).


Added DiffLines:

* SurveillanceAsThePlotDemands: Divatox has a periscope that can pop up in ''anything'' made of liquid. Sports coolers, bowls of punch, someone's drink... how this happens is anyone's guess.


Added DiffLines:

* TimeSkip: Between the old team leaving and the new team taking their place. "Passing The Torch" ends with Tommy et all leaving, then the next episode begins with TJ, Ashley, Cass, and Carlos not only gelled as a team, but with them knowing the Blue Senturion, and knowing how to operate the Megazords no problem.

** And in one instance, a monster manages to make itself grow.



* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Because Rocky didn't get enough short-shrift throughout Zeo, here he only appears in the movie, and the first episode of the series, before vanishing without a trace.



* InsistentTerminology: Divatox never calls them bombs, they're "detonators".



* IneffectualLoner: Carlos.

to:

* IneffectualLoner: Carlos.Carlos, at first. Though in his introductory episode, his problem isn't that he's ineffectual, just that he's not a team-player.



* WouldHurtAChild: When Jason turns evil, he has no qualms kicking the crap out of Justin even though the latter is only Kid ranger.

** In one episode, Justin runs afoul of two older students who have no qualms whatsoever about attacking and chasing after a pre-teen, just for not giving them the answers to a test.

** Smaller mice: Lt. Stone, Bulk, and Skull were back on the police force as of TheMovie. Nothing was mentioned of their police jobs after the premiere; taking Ernie's spot was quite a career change that there was known reason for Stone to make. (Bulk and Skull were probably left off the roster after vanishing for months as far as the world was concerned during their time as monkeys, but still, ''one line'' about trying to get their jobs back and failing would have been nice.)
