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.

* {{Bowdlerize}}: The suit villains (Elgar, Rygog and Porto) were all slightly redesigned for American footage, with their facial features being softened to appear less frightening to children.

* DemotedToExtra: In an early episode titled "Shadow Rangers," the monster of the day is a humanoid, Putty-like robot-thing called Chromite. When General Havoc arrives much later in the season, it turns out that Chromites are in fact simple foot soldiers, just like Cogs, Putties, or Piranhatrons.



* LetsGetDangerous: Divatox only becomes a competent villain in the finale. Every actual victory or close victory against the Rangers was done only from someone more competent than she is, such as her mother (advice on separating the Rangers from their leader), General Havok (Metallisaurus and kidnapping the Phantom Ranger) or Goldgoyle (effectively a hired mercenary). Her raid on the Command Center at the end was appropriately nasty, but it comes across as a victory she really didn't earn.

** 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".

* 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.

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.
