* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Many seasons have examples of this for one reason or another, but two examples stand out just for the sheer size. In over two decades, there has been only two seasons of Super Sentai to be [[NoExportForYou skipped over when it came time for adaptation]]: ''Series/TokumeiSentaiGobusters'' and ''Series/ResshaSentaiToQger''. Amit Bhaumik, probably best known for the MilestoneCelebration "Forever Red", had an entire story outline prepared for the former, too; one he called ''[[http://amitbhaumik.tumblr.com/post/78152321594/power-rangers-cyber-corps-aka-power-rangers-21 Power Rangers: Cyber Corps.]]''

* FandomLifeCycle: In the odd case of being a 90's pop culture icon that's still ongoing, Power Rangers as a whole is at Stage 6a, far from its glory days. ''Mighty Morphin'' by itself is at Stage 5. Anything within the Zordon Era is Stage 2. ''Lost Galaxy'' through ''RPM'' can go down to Stage 0b. ''Samurai'', ''Megaforce'' and ''Dino Charge'' have all brought minor Newbie Booms while the announcement of the Lionsgate film is slowly edging PR closer to Stage X territory.

** When Saban's new company got it, they struck a deal to have it aired on {{Nickelodeon}} and {{Nicktoons}}. Once Saban Brands bought out Creator/FourKidsEntertainment's assets, they took advantage of the included [[TheCW CW]] programming block and scheduled ''Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy'' as part of the Creator/{{Vortexx}} launch lineup.

** While the series' airing on {{Nickelodeon}} brought with it large amounts of marketing and brought it renewed popularity, Nickelodeon also severely cut down the number of episodes per season, forcing ''Samurai'' to be dragged out for two years in order to fit in the whole story, and forcing Saban to adapt ''Series/TensouSentaiGoseiger'' as the twentieth anniversary season instead of the more appropriate ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger''.

** Then Saban got it back and struck a deal to have it aired on {{Nickelodeon}} and {{Nicktoons}}. Once Saban bought out Creator/FourKidsEntertainment, they took advantage of the included [[TheCW CW]] programming block and immediately scheduled ''Power Rangers'' as part of the Creator/{{Vortexx}} launch lineup.
*** And starting with ''Super Megaforce'', Creator/CartoonNetwork will air the series in Latin America, despite its US broadcasting rights still belonging to Nick. Oddly enough, that is true also in Southeast Asia, where it also airs on CN from ''Wild Force'' onwards, when it should have been airing on Disney Channel Asia (during the Disney era) or Nick Southeast Asia (in the Neo Saban era).

Added DiffLines:

** In Canada, the original ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' aired on [[Creator/GlobalTelevisionNetwork Global]] and Creator/{{YTV}}, until complaints by the [[MoralGuardians Canadian Broadcast Standards Council]] [[ExecutiveMeddling yanked the show off Canadian airwaves]] (Outside of households that had access to a Creator/{{FOX}} or Creator/{{ABC}} affiliate). The show would later end up on Creator/FamilyChannel, which aired ''[[Creator/PowerRangersLightspeedRescue Lightspeed Rescue]]'' and ''[[Series/PowerRangersWildForce Wild Force]]'', along with the rest of the Disney-produced seasons. When Saban reacquired the franchise and moved it to Nickelodeon, the show returned to YTV with ''Samurai''. But after YTV's parent company, Creator/CorusEntertainment, gained 100% control of Creator/{{Teletoon}}, the show would move to the latter network [[note]] [[NetworkDecay Huh?]] [[/note]] just as Corus acquired new episodes of ''[[Series/PowerRangersMegaforce Super Megaforce]]''.

** While the franchise was still owned by Disney, there were plans for an animated series. A pilot script was written and [[http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/powerrangers/images/7/7b/943235_10201111750575146_742189853_n.jpg initial designs]] were made, but was later cancelled for unknown reasons.

** Amy Jo Johnson (Kimberly) actually had a gymnastics career before joining the cast. David Yost (Billy) was a gymnast as well, and you can tell costuming had a hard time downplaying his athleticism.

Added DiffLines:

* CastTheExpert: The show usually seeks out people with martial arts or other athletic backgrounds to start with.


Added DiffLines:

* FollowTheLeader: Many, some of which are [[SelfPlagiarism Saban's own attempts to repeat the same concept]]: ''Series/VRTroopers'', ''Series/{{Beetleborgs}}'' and ''Series/MaskedRider''.
