* PoliceAreUseless: Because Power Rangers isn't allowed to use guns, at least not in the Zordon Era, the police are of little help (with the exception of the Blue Senturion). In ''Phantom Phenomenon'', when Divatox is robbing a bank, we clearly see a cop hiding behind a car with some citizens.

* CaliforniaDoubling: As with the previous seasons, the Power Chamber exterior is The House of the Book performance hall and library building at the American Jewish University, Brandeis-Bardin Campus in Simi Valley, California.



* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Detective Stone took over running the Juice Bar, because Richard Genelle (Ernie) had to leave the series due to health reasons.



* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: The biggest, though not the ''only'' such situation is the Zeo Crystal. The source of power for the Power Rangers in the previous season gets swiftly brushed aside and replaced by the Turbo powers in the movie. It's given no dramatic send off like when the [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Power Coins]] were destroyed. No one lampshades it, nor brings up how the Zeo Crystal continues to grow in power, which would make the need for new more powerful morphers to be pointless. This is strange considering how Kat morphs into Zeo Ranger I in the beginning of the movie, yet Adam doesn't possess his Zeo Crystal during his cameo in ''Series/PowerRangersInSpace''. (Out-of-universe, it's obviously so his teamup with Carlos would be of the two Black Rangers; if it had been during Turbo he'd probably have become the green Zeo Ranger IV. In-universe, he used an unstable damaged Power Coin that could have ''killed'' him in favor of the Zeo powers.) On top of ''that,'' Tommy is powerless in ''PowerRangersDinoThunder'' until the Black Dino Gem is discovered (even though ''he'' used his Zeo powers just fine in "Forever Red!") But we don't have to go all the way to Adam's return, let alone PRDT, for a time when it's non-use was FridgeLogic: After the Turbo powers were lost, you'd think they'd have said "didn't those other guys used to be powered by this super-powerful crystal of supposedly planetwrecking strength?" before setting out ''powerless'' on a journey to space.

This season is somewhat infamous among fans, mainly because its source material, ''Series/GekisouSentaiCarranger'', was actually a parody of ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' series. Despite this, the writers tried to give the season a serious tone in its first half, leading to jarring mood shifts when the stock footage was used. An episode will be delving into the drama of Zordon and Alpha leaving to Eltar and Tommy reading his Zords instruction manual in battle . Another polarizing point, the twelve-year-old Blue Ranger, cannot be blamed on Japanese footage. Though it must be said there was a precedent for Kid Rangers in Super Sentai; both Kiba Ranger (White [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers MMPR]]/''[[Series/GoseiSentaiDairanger Dairanger]]'' White) and King Ranger (''Zeo'' Gold/''[[Series/ChourikiSentaiOhranger Ohranger]]'' King) were children.
