The first season produced after the Creator/{{Disney}} buyout, ''Wild Force'' was a transitional season; the first half was aired on FoxKids, while the second half aired on Creator/{{ABC}} Kids. Considered one of the weaker seasons, some dislike it for its lack of originality, being largely a clone of ''Gaoranger'' (some episodes are near {{shot for shot remake}}s); the teamup episodes are pretty much the only cool bits that weren't ''Gaoranger'' footage. This ''apparently'' stems from director Johnathan Tzachor being a bit of a PrimaDonnaDirector who was pushing for the show to more and more a copy and paste of the Sentai. What draws fans to it is mostly the technical aspects--beneath the surface is a dark story of murder and war, and also, it has ''lots'' more giant robots than usual - not only that, but the individual Wild Zords are viewed by fans as being some of the coolest-looking animal mecha in the series due to their streamlined and almost naturalistic proportions. The other thing ''Wild Force'' is notable for is not one, but ''two'' excellent [[ReunionShow team-up]] specials.

** CallingYourAttacks: Due to sticking to Sentai more than usual. Most series have the Rangers name the weapon they're using, but Wild Force feels almost like Digimon when the Rangers are using their Zords. "[Name of formation here] Saber!" is abandoned in favor of things like "Predator Wave", "Pachyderm Crusher", "Revolver Phantom", "Isis Stare", and "Wings of Animaria". [[TropesAreNotBad Not that that's a bad thing]].

Added DiffLines:

* SpotlightStealingSquad: Nope, this award doesn't go out to Cole, but to several others like...
** Taylor, who is arguably well-rounded and showed a full range of emotions in addition to ass-kicking. It also helps that actress Alyson Kiperman was very experienced in acting.
** Jason and Tommy in "Forever Red". Also, Carter continuing his badassery in that same episode. Hell, might as well just say all the veteran Red Rangers in that episode (of course, if you're going to bring back almost every veteran Red Ranger, you give them the darn spotlight).
*** Cole himself stole the spotlight when [[spoiler: he was the one who destroyed Serpenterra AND survived]].
** And before that, the return of the Time Force Rangers.

* TheArtifact: The finale "The End of the Power Rangers" seems like an odd title to name a season that had 12 seasons and counting following it, but this was originally going to be the final season of ''Power Rangers'' before Disney was convinced to move production to New Zealand to save cost.

* XMeetsY: Some fans describe the season as "''Power Rangers'' meets ''[[WesternAnimation/CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers Captain Planet]]''," and there are a few similarities such as a strong environmental message, the team's mentor being a female mystic, and one of the main characters having a power related to heart. However, the villains in ''Wild Force'' rarely set out to cause damage to the environment -- in fact, it's actually pointed out in the Animus arc that the humans are far more guilty of that than the Orgs -- as opposed to ''Captain Planet'' where every episode the villains set out to pollute either as part of a money-making scheme or just ForTheEvulz.
