** In Italy, Italia 1 aired the series from ''Mighty Morphin'' to ''Lost Galaxy''. ''Lightspeed Rescue'' and ''Time Force'' aired on Fox Kids/Jetix alongside reruns of the older series, then it came back on ''Italia 1'' for ''Wild Force'' and ''Ninja Storm'' plus ''Lost Galaxy'' reruns. Fox Kids/Jetix added these two series to their rerun blocks and got ''Dino Thunder'' too, and then Rai 2 aired from ''SPD'' to ''Jungle Fury''. ''Samurai'' was aired on Italia 1 once again, with K2 airing ''RPM'' some time later alongside reruns of ''Mystic Force'' and ''Operation Overdrive'', ''Megaforce'' and ''Dino Charge'' both aired on Boing and Pop got the show's rights in time for the airing of ''Ninja Steel'' (plus reruns of ''Operation Overdrive'', ''Jungle Fury'' and ''RPM'')

** There's also Mike the Magna Defender and Mike the Green Samurai Ranger. Incidently there's another Green Samurai Ranger too. Also; two Thunder Megazords, two sets of Ninja Zords and ''three'' sets of Dino Zords.

* FridayNightDeathSlot: A variant. Because the series was not an EdutainmentShow, many ABC affiliates refused to carry it in its assigned late Saturday morning time slot and often relegated it to air at 5am on Saturday or Sunday before the church shows or farm report. Some even threw it out entirely as they regarded the show as radioactive to their attempts to maintain that their children's shows were all educational. And on the stations where it ran when it was supposed to, that time slot tended to be preempted for sports.

** There's Mike Corbett, the Magna Defender, and Mike, the Green Samurai Ranger. Incidently there's another Green Samurai Ranger too. Also; 2 Thunder Megazords, 2 sets of Ninja Zords and 3 sets of Dino Zords.
* OldShame: Between being a well known kids show that can inspire TypeCasting / IAmNotSpock for ambitious actors alongside a very low budget that pays them the bare minimum and a rough filming schedule, some actors have regrets from being a part of the show.
** David Yost (Billy, the first Blue Ranger) hid from the fandom after the show ended, as he revealed in a 2010 interview he was gay and that he quit the show after being passively harassed by the behind-the-camera staff. But Yost made it clear that he still enjoyed the experience of playing Billy, loves the fans who support him and frequently goes to Power Morphicon to hang out with former cast mates. However, when Saban invited him to cameo in ''Super Megaforce'', Yost declined, comparing it to an abusive ex trying to get back together with you.
** Amy Jo Johnson (Kimberly, the first Pink Ranger) also fell under this during the late 90's and early 2000's. At the time she was trying to make it as a singer/songwriter/actor and didn't want to talk about it. After a respectable career beyond the show she has come back to appreciate her time on the show and has even said that she would love to play Kimberly once again if asked to.
** Danny Slavin (Leo, the Red Galaxy Ranger), for the record, did get along very well with his cast mates, Scott Page-Pagter, and Koichi Sakamoto, as well as the writers. However, there was always a lot of tension between him and Saban's management, which soured his relationship with the franchise for many years. He later admitted he only did the role to [[IWasYoungAndNeededTheMoney pay for law school]], and was disillusioned during the ''Lightspeed Rescue'' crossover when Amy Miller (Trakeena) was being slighted on her salary and left the set in protest; it was also partly due to the fact that he had already fallen out with management. He nearly sat out the "Forever Red" reunion, until a friend and producer convinced him to have a few unmorphed scenes filmed late in the process. Eventually [[TheBusCameBack he returned]] for ''Super Megaforce''[='=]s version of the Legend War, despite having not acted in 10 years. Like Amy Jo Johnson, he seems to have gotten over his old shame; he can now be seen frequenting Power Morphicon, ComicCon, and other related conventions.
** For a different variety of example, when Ron Wasserman recorded new versions of several songs from the series, he intentionally did not redo "White Ranger Tiger Power" because of the UnfortunateImplications of the song's title.
* OohMeAccentsSlipping: From ''Ninja Storm'' and onward -- since they started filming in New Zealand -- some of the actors' Kiwi accents slipped in the middle of dialogue (which the crew did not bother to re-shoot and therefore going unedited) when they are supposed to be using the North American accent. Averted since ''Samurai'', when they started using mostly American actors for the Rangers again.
* RecursiveImport: ''Power Rangers'' was dubbed back into Japanese from ''Mighty Morphin'' to ''Lightspeed Rescue'', then after Saban reacquired the rights to the series, dubs of ''SPD'', ''Mystic Force'', ''Samurai'', and ''Megaforce'' were released. With the case of ''SPD'', most of ''Dekaranger'''s cast voiced their respective counterparts, and for the dub of ''Mighty Morphin'', Creator/MachikoSoga redubbed herself as Rita Repulsa.
* SavedFromDevelopmentHell: The attempts in TheEighties and early Nineties by Saban (and Creator/MarvelComics before that -- retroactively prophethic, since one of the reasons Saban managed to repurchase and thus save the series so easily is that Disney just finished acquiring Marvel at the time (both brands filled the same boys' superhero properties niche)) just to get the pilot picked up by a network, ANY NETWORK. It was only when Saban went to FoxKids, and Margaret Loesch ([[http://www.blastfromthepasttv.com/mloeschinterview.html who worked with]] Creator/StanLee on the Marvel attempt) who was the head at the time, that the show was picked up. This combined with the Uncancelled entry below, brings new meaning to the lyric, ''No one can ever take them down..''
* ScrewedByTheNetwork: Disney's actions towards the series, including the show's gradual disappearance from cable, scheduling ''RPM'' where it can constantly be pre-empted and timeshifted, and the lack of full-season DVD sets in the US.

** While the series' airing on {{Creator/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''.
* TroubledProduction: ''Lost Galaxy'' got the worst of it. This largely had to do with the production team trying to figure out how to adapt a nature-themed sentai into a space opera so that it followed in the vein of the highly successful ''In Space'', meaning a lot of the series was pretty much thrown together on the fly, which probably gave the writers a huge headache. Not to mention the fact that the actress Valerie Vernon, who played Kendrix, being diagnosed with leukemia during filming and having to leave the show, leading to even more hasty re-writes as they quickly scrambled to negotiate a replacement pink ranger who could be written into the remainder of the season. Also, Cassie was originally slated to return to fill in Kendrix's shoes, but actress Patricia Ja Lee was said to have been very disappointed at being ''considerably'' lower-paid than the rest of the cast; things got even worse when she found out that she would only be cited in the opening credits as a guest-star even though her character was being brought back to be onscreen full-time. Of course, that situation with Patricia Ja Lee wasn't the only case of drama behind the scenes. *Ahem* Danny Slavin, hoo boy....
** If ''Lost Galaxy'' had it worse, then ''RPM'' was a strong second if not topping it. An adaptation meant to be geared towards an older audience going off of goofy sentai footage, by a newcomer executive producer who fully understood the near impossible task of turning this goofy material into something more serious. There were plenty of rumors about the show's production issues which may or may not have been true, but regardless, there's a very minimal amount of Sentai footage, meaning things had to be more tight, and meant there were some serious issues in how to use the Sentai footage by comparison. Then the producer was fired midway through, forcing an old pro Judd Lynn to step in and help try to fulfill what Eddie had put in place, while still giving the series his own vision. And on top of all that, the executives were utterly dismissive of the show at this point, meaning they had to work with less sympathetic ears to making the show work.
** There's been speculation that Megaforce and Super Megaforce suffered this, due to baffling production decisions. The production was delayed several months with auditions being shut down, only to resume a few months later. The official statement was the series still needed work. Speculation exists that originally ''Series/TensouSentaiGoseiger'' would have been the only series adapted, With the addition of ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger'' footage being used many speculate this led to many last minute decisions that heavily show.
*** Linkara made a point in WebVideo/HistoryOfPowerRangers highlighting potential trouble behind the scenes including a mismanaged budget and bizarre choices when it came to filming original footage. This leads him to believe that executive producer Jonathan Tzachor did not leave willingly and was fired.
* UnderAgeCasting: ''Power Rangers'' usually averts this, by having the majority of their teams be high school students (played by 20-somethings,) but the occasional season will have a team of rangers with other professions that require extensive training still played by the typical 18-25 actors they always have. There's also the running joke about the "Impossibly Fast Doctorate Program," where characters have gained credentials in obscenely shorts periods of time. Dana Mitchell of ''Lightspeed Rescue'' was a paramedic played by 20-year-old Alison [=MacInnis=], who was then a full-fledged pediatrician the next year. Similarly, by the time of ''Dino Thunder,'' Tommy Oliver (then-29-year-old-Jason David Frank) had finished college, gotten a Doctorate in Paleontology, and developed the Dino Thunder technology, all in the six year span since he graduated high school midway through ''Turbo.''

* ''Power Rangers'' beat ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' to the punch at a ''Franchise/KamenRider'' crossover, thanks to MightyMorphinPowerRangers story arc for 'MaskedRider' by a long gap. To elaborate: Said ''MMPR'' episodes aired in 1995. The SamuraiSentaiShinkenger crossover arc of Kamen Rider Decade aired in 2009, or '''14 years later'''.
** Though considering that ''Masked Rider'' was not an outright crossover in regards to ''MMPR'' (said episodes were his debut appearances, after all), ''Power Rangers'' still beat ''Sentai'' at a crossover with Power Rangers In Space and Ninja Turtles The Next Mutation. What makes it amusing is that In Space'' and Shinkenger are both fan-favorite seasons of their respective shows, whereas The Next Mutation'' is what Peter Laird and TMNT fans see in their nightmares and Decade provoked much "Forever Red"-worthy Flame Wars over the endgame of its story...
* ''Power Rangers'' also had a female Red Ranger before ''Super Sentai'': Power Rangers SPD's A-Squad leader Charlie, to Shiba Kaoru, the female ShinkenRed, a 4-year difference.
* Zordon never told Alpha to recruit "teenagers with attitude." He asked for "overbearing and overemotional humans." Alpha said, "not that, not teenagers!" The phrase was used in the introduction, but was a way to condense that scene.
* CaliforniaDoubling: Often. Starting with ''Ninja Storm'' it became New Zealand Doubling (for California, no less).

** When Saban's new company got it, they struck a deal to have it aired on Nickelodeon and Nicktoons. Once Saban Brands bought out FourKidsEntertainment's assets, they took advantage of the included CW programming block and scheduled 'Power Rangers Lost Galaxy as part of the Vortexx launch lineup.

** In the UK, it was on ITV/CITV from MMPR through to RPM, and Channel 5 for Samurai, Super Samurai and Megaforce. It was also on Sky One for the first 145 episodes, then Fox Kids/Jetix from Alien Rangers through to RPM, then Nickelodeon/Nicktoons for Samurai, Super Samurai and Megaforce, then Pop for Super Megaforce. Latterly, Kix airs old episodes - it's success there is likely why it's sister channel Pop has decided to take over from Nickelodeon as the show's UK home.

* DawsonCasting: Quite frequently. The first season had characters in high school played by actors in their early-to-mid-twenties, some of whom did a better job than others. The trope page compares Austin and AJJ to show how men are less convincing at this than women, especially since Austin ''was'' a teenager -- he was 17 when they started filming, and was 18 years old when it first aired -- when he started playing Jason (although to be exact Austin was actually in his late teens, therefore he was fully mature physically and it showed, which actually contrasted with the age of his character, who was earlier in high school).
** Jason Chan was already 30 when he played Cam in ''Ninja Storm''-- although, to be fair, Cam's age is never specified and it's not uncommon for a SixthRanger like himself to be an adult.
** Phillip Jeanmarie's character, Max, in ''Wild Force'' is said to be the youngest member of the team (quite possibly in his senior year in high school). However, it is actually Jessica Rey (Alyssa) who is the youngest of the main Ranger cast; but, with Jeanmarie, you wouldn't be able to [[OlderThanTheyLook tell]].
** The most notable aversion was in ''Lightspeed Rescue''. Rhett Fisher (Ryan/Titanium Ranger) was literally the exact same age as his character, starting off 19 and turning 20 a few episodes in. Interestingly, he's actually 2 months younger than Dana's actress Alison [=MacInnis=] despite being the older brother. But since both characters looked their parts (late teens/early 20s) it worked just fine.
* ExecutiveMeddling: Originally all the villains were suppose to be vaporized by Zordon's wave in countdown (excluding Karone/Astronema of course). FoxKids' BS&P forbade them to kill off the human villains.
** This is why Wes and Jen didn't kiss at the end of ''Time Force.'' Although it's also why Eric survived.
** Also in ''SPD'', as far as making the Omega Ranger a ball of light when he wasn't morphed because the producers decided to spend most of the budget creating an all-original Zord/Monster fight for the finale.
** There seems to be some of this going on since Saban took the rights back. As we understand it, Nickelodeon is making Saban stretch each adaptation out to two seasons, or limiting seasons to 20 episodes as they do with some of their original series thereby forcing Saban to take two years to do a full adaptation. Combined with long-standing contracts with Toei that don't let them skip any ''Sentai'' (at least until, it becomes kind of frustrating for fans as ''Rangers'' keeps falling further behind ''Sentai''.
*** This resulted in ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger'' being adapted as a power-up for the Megaforce Rangers, who start out with the ''Series/TensouSentaiGoseiger'' suits. And now ''Series/TokumeiSentaiGoBusters'' seems to have been skipped over entirely, with ''Dino Charge'' being a direct adaptation of ''Series/ZyudenSentaiKyoryuger'', plus ''Ninja Steel'' will go straight to adapting ''Series/ShurikenSentaiNinninger'' while jumping over ''Series/ResshaSentaiToqger''.
** Disney never really appreciated the franchise, having had ''Power Rangers'' forced on their laps in order to acquire [[Creator/ABCFamily the Family Channel]], Disney considered the entire series an embarrassment, and was always pushing for less violence... in a kids action show. Continuous budget slashes and always wanting to cancel it, they were more than happy to sell it back to Saban the moment they bought out [[Creator/MarvelComics the gold mine of more evergreen boys' superhero properties]].
* FakeAmerican: From ''Ninja Storm'' onward, production took place in New Zealand, with mostly local actors trying their darnedest to pretend they didn't have Kiwi accents. Subverted by Xander in ''Mystic Force'', as Richard Brancatisano didn't even bother hiding his accent and was eventually handwaved as a native Australian that immigrated to the States.
** However, Jeffery Parazzo (Trent) and Kevin Duhaney (Ethan), from ''Dino Thunder'', actually came all the way from Canada. Regardless, they were obviously able to easily pass for American unlike some of the Kiwi actors.
** In ''RPM'', there's a fake ''Scotsman'' (Blue Ranger Flynn); also played by a Kiwi, Ari Boyland.
** Although his race is never stated, Antonio from ''Samurai's'' last name is Garcia hinting at a Hispanic background, though he could just as easily be Filipino which would be closer to Steven Skyler's ''Thai/German'' heritage.

* DawsonCasting: Quite frequently. The first season had characters in high school played by actors in their early-to-mid-twenties, early-to-mid-20's, some of whom did a better job than others. The trope page compares Austin and AJJ to show how men are less convincing at this than women, especially since Austin ''was'' was a teenager -- he was 17 when they started filming, and was 18 years old when it first aired -- when he started playing Jason (although to be exact Austin was actually in his late teens, therefore he was fully mature physically and it showed, which actually contrasted with the age of his character, who was earlier in high school).
** Jason Chan was already 30 31 when he played Cam in ''Ninja Storm''-- Ninja Storm-- although, to be fair, Cam's age is never specified and it's not uncommon for a SixthRanger Sixth Ranger like himself to be an adult.
** Phillip Jeanmarie's character, Max, in ''Wild Force'' Wild Force is said to be the youngest member of the team (quite possibly in his senior year in high school). team. However, it is actually Jessica Rey (Alyssa) who is the youngest of the main Ranger cast; but, with Jeanmarie, you wouldn't be able to [[OlderThanTheyLook tell]].tell.
** The most notable aversion was in ''Lightspeed Rescue''.Lightspeed Rescue. Rhett Fisher (Ryan/Titanium Ranger) was literally the exact same age as his character, starting off 19 and turning 20 a few episodes in. Interestingly, he's actually 2 months younger than Dana's actress Alison [=MacInnis=] MacInnis despite being the older brother. But since both characters looked their parts (late teens/early 20s) it worked just fine.
* ExecutiveMeddling: Originally all the villains were suppose supposed to be vaporized by Zordon's wave in countdown (excluding Karone/Astronema of course). FoxKids' wave. Fox Kids' BS&P forbade them to kill off the human villains.
** This is why Wes and Jen didn't kiss at the end of ''Time Force.'' Time Force. Although it's also why Eric survived.
** Also in ''SPD'', SPD, as far as making the Omega Ranger a ball of light when he wasn't morphed because the producers decided to spend most of the budget creating an all-original Zord/Monster fight for the finale.
** There seems to be some of this going on since Saban took the rights back. As we understand it, Nickelodeon is making Saban stretch each adaptation out to two seasons, or limiting seasons to 20 episodes as they do with some of their original series thereby forcing Saban to take two years to do a full adaptation. Combined with long-standing contracts with Toei that don't let them skip any ''Sentai'' (at least until, it becomes kind of frustrating for fans as ''Rangers'' keeps falling further behind ''Sentai''.
Sentai.
*** This resulted in ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger'' Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger being adapted as a power-up for the Megaforce Rangers, who start out with the ''Series/TensouSentaiGoseiger'' Tensou Sentai Goseiger suits. And now ''Series/TokumeiSentaiGoBusters'' seems to have now, Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters has been skipped over entirely, with ''Dino Charge'' Dino Charge being a direct adaptation of ''Series/ZyudenSentaiKyoryuger'', Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger, plus ''Ninja Steel'' Ninja Steel will go straight to adapting ''Series/ShurikenSentaiNinninger'' Shuriken Sentai Ninninger while jumping over ''Series/ResshaSentaiToqger''.
Ressha Sentai ToQger.
** Disney never really appreciated the franchise, having had ''Power Rangers'' Power Rangers forced on their laps in order to acquire [[Creator/ABCFamily the Family Channel]], ABCFamily, Disney considered the entire series an embarrassment, and was always pushing for less violence... violence...in a kids action show. Continuous budget slashes and always wanting to cancel it, they were more than happy to sell it back to Saban the moment they bought out [[Creator/MarvelComics Marvel Comics the gold mine of more evergreen boys' superhero properties]].properties.
* FakeAmerican: From ''Ninja Storm'' Ninja Storm onward, production took place in New Zealand, with mostly local actors trying their darnedest to pretend they didn't have Kiwi accents. Subverted by Xander in ''Mystic Force'', Mystic Force as Richard Brancatisano didn't even bother hiding his accent and was eventually handwaved as a native Australian that immigrated to the States.
** However, Jeffery Parazzo (Trent) and Kevin Duhaney (Ethan), from ''Dino Thunder'', Dino Thunder, actually came all the way from Canada. Regardless, they were obviously able to easily pass for American unlike some of the Kiwi actors.
** In ''RPM'', RPM, there's a fake ''Scotsman'' Scotsman (Blue Ranger Flynn); also played by a Kiwi, Ari Boyland.
** Although his race is never stated, Antonio from ''Samurai's'' Samurai's last name is Garcia hinting at a Hispanic background, though he could just as easily be Filipino which would be closer to Steven Skyler's ''Thai/German'' Thai/German heritage.



** The character of Chase in ''Dino Charge'' is a repeat of Xander in this respect, as James Davies is a native New Zealander.

* FridayNightDeathSlot: A variant. Because the series was not an EdutainmentShow, many ABC affiliates refused to carry it in its assigned late Saturday morning timeslot and often relegated it to air at 5am on Saturday or Sunday before the church shows or farm report. Some even threw it out entirely as they regarded the show as radioactive to their attempts to maintain that their children's shows were all educational. And on the stations where it ran when it was supposed to, that timeslot tended to be preempted for sports.

!!The TV series in general

* ''Power Rangers'' beat ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' to the punch at a ''Franchise/KamenRider'' crossover, thanks to ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers''[='=] PoorlyDisguisedPilot story arc for ''Series/MaskedRider'' by a long gap. To elaborate: Said ''MMPR'' episodes aired in 1995. The ''Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger'' crossover arc of ''Series/KamenRiderDecade'' aired in 2009, or '''14 years later'''.
** Though considering that ''Masked Rider'' was not an outright crossover in regards to ''MMPR'' (said episodes were his debut appearances, after all), ''Power Rangers'' still beat ''Sentai'' at a crossover with ''Series/PowerRangersInSpace''/''Series/NinjaTurtlesTheNextMutation''. What makes it amusing is that ''In Space'' and ''Shinkenger'' are both fan-favorite seasons of their respective shows, whereas ''The Next Mutation'' is [[CanonDiscontinuity what Peter Laird and TMNT fans see in their nightmares]] and ''Decade'' provoked much "Forever Red"-worthy {{Flame War}}s over the endgame of its story...
* ''Power Rangers'' also had a female Red Ranger before ''Super Sentai'': [[Series/PowerRangersSPD SPD]]'s A-Squad leader Charlie, to Shiba Kaoru, the female [[Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger ShinkenRed]], a 4-year difference.
* AdoredByTheNetwork: British channel Kix. They love the show so much, that their second channel, Kix Power, is named after Power Rangers and for the first six weeks is showing nothing else!
* BeamMeUpScotty: Zordon never told Alpha to recruit "teenagers with attitude." He asked for "overbearing and overemotional humans." Alpha said, "not that, not teenagers!" The phrase was used in the introduction, but was a way to condense that scene. Became a [[RecruitTeenagersWithAttitude trope namer]].
* CaliforniaDoubling: Often. Starting with ''Ninja Storm'' it became New Zealand Doubling (for California no less).

** Started on {{FOX}}, but when the FoxKids block died it went over to Creator/{{ABC}} and Disney's cable channels (but, [[ScrewedByTheNetwork strangely]], not Creator/DisneyXD when it launched).
** When Saban's new company got it, they struck a deal to have it aired on {{Creator/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.
*** And starting with ''[[Series/PowerRangersMegaforce 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).
** In the UK, it was on ITV/CITV from MMPR through to RPM, and Channel 5 for Samurai, Super Samurai and Megaforce. It was also on Sky One for the first 145 episodes, then Fox Kids/Jetix from Alien Rangers through to RPM, then Nickelodeon/Nicktoons for Samurai, Super Samurai and Megaforce, then Pop for Super Megaforce. Latterly, Kix airs old episodes - it's [[AdoredByTheNetwork success]] there is likely why it's sister channel Pop has decided to take over from Nickelodeon as the show's UK home.
