** Not just ''a'' law, but a Prime Directive. We've seen in Franchise/StarTrek and StarOcean how obsessive people can be about those, and why.

*** On the surface, yes. However, VideoGame/StarOceanTheLastHope explains quite well why it isn't a good idea to interfere in more primitive cultures. CargoCults in the more primitive examples, economic, political and technological dependency in examples like earth. If anyone bailed Earth out, it would basically become a colony world of whoever did the saving, as it lacks the knowledge to compete against the flow of resources that would ensue in reconstruction.

Considering Samurai confirmed RPM happens in another universe, it could be that RPM's Venjix and Wild Force's Venjix are each other's counterparts in both dimensions.

* The series is over, and to the surprise of ''absolutely NO ONE'', this WMG was jossed '''hard'''.



** Alternatively, maybe the aliens WANT to help, but can't - Venjix could've surrounded the earth with Nukes and made it so that attempting to navigate through them would be like trying to get through a minefield blindfolded, or he's installed anti-spaceship defenses.

defenses. Although in the case of everything sans Masked Rider, it's likely that due to RPM being in a different universe, they didn't happen in this universe.

* [[spoiler: She doesn't take any level of badass, but surprisingly, she averts the trope of her namesake]].




to:

* The PR! Version of Decade only has contact with the Samurai Rangers (and that only works if you're under the assumption that the events of the Samurai equivalent of "World of Shinkenger" were offscreen), who only had contact with the RPM rangers near the end of RPM (even if ''RPM'' and ''Samurai'' take place at the same time, as suggested by "Clash of the Red Rangers"). So jossed.

[[WMG: Dillon had help in the desert he has forgotten about because of stress.]]
The only flashbacks of Dillon has him wearing a hospital nightgown type thing and doesn't seem to own anything as he's a slave of Venjix. He shows up in jeans and a leather jacket with a awesome car. He probably met a survivor in the desert, it was his stuff. The other guy died, not because of Dillon, because of the stress like Summer's butler. Dillon took his stuff and forgot the guy existed because the shock of more agony on top of what happened to his sister, broke his brain.

While we can ignore Akibaranger since it's unofficial (or we can count it just for fun), and we can assume that the pre-''Zyuranger'' series happened on both, but weren't documented (at least in the main Earth Universe), maybe the teams that aren't being adapted canonically exist in the RPM universe, and the conflicts those teams are involved in take place in the gaps between the post-''Samurai'' series (since the RPM rangers seem to be still active around the time "Clash of the Red Rangers" occur, and Corinth seems to be at peace when the Super Megaforce rangers visit it) - the events of the RPM version of ''[=Go-Busters=]'' take place in the time between the end of ''Super Megaforce'' and the beginning of ''Dino Charge'', the RPM ''[=ToQger=]'' events happen in between ''Dino Super Charge'' ending and ''Ninja Steel'' beginning, the RPM version of whatever Saban skips next takes place in between the end of ''Ninja Super Steel'' and the start of the first season of whatever PR series comes after ''Ninja Steel'', and so on, with the RPM verse teams not calling for help from the main universe because things have gotten much better for the RPM universe Earth (and they can turn to other RPM-verse teams for help if they need it). As for the Dairangers: They are the RPM version of the original ''Mighty Morphin'' rangers (except here, the white ranger never needed to get new powers since he never lost his). The timelines divert at the same time, and the main Earth timeline had the events of ''Jungle Fury'' happen, while the RPM universe Earth saw the events of, well, ''RPM'' happen - plus, this would give an explanation as to why in ''Super Megaforce'', when the Super Megaforce rangers use RPM's powers, they gain access to the ''Dairanger'' suits (since the events of the PR versions of ''Go-Busters'' and ''[=ToQger=]'' hadn't happened when ''Super Megaforce'' happened, and those teams never went to the main earth, the Super Megaforce Rangers didn't get the powers of those 2 teams). The events of ''SPD'' do still occur in the RPM-verse, though - by that point, humanity had finally regained contact with alien life and recovered from the events of RPM, so they began to police the galaxy. However, after the events of the RPM-verse SPD, it returns to the series Saban skipped.

[[WMG: This series shares a universe with ABC's daytime SoapOperas.]]
It may sound weird at first, but hear me out. Firstly, the city's name is Corinth. During the 1980s, there was an Creator/{{ABC}} soap called ''Series/{{Loving}}'', which took place in the fictitious town of Corinth, PA. The show was linked into a SharedUniverse with all the other ABC soaps- ''Series/AllMyChildren'', ''Series/OneLifeToLive'', and of course ''Series/GeneralHospital'' - all of which had a lot of weirdness going on- some of the out there plots of ''GH'' had among other things, a WeatherControlMachine and alien crystals from the planet Lumina. It's possible the Corinth of ''RPM'' is the Corinth from ''Loving'', albeit AfterTheEnd (so no one remembers the infamous "Loving Murders")- given the weirdness already around on this Earth, a robot apocalypse would be the logical next step.

[[WMG: RPM will end with the use of nuclear weapons to take out Venjix]]
In Time Force, the planet is still ruined and babies are genetically engineered to prevent dangerous mutations. What do we know of that would still be around nine hundred years later, prevent plants from reclaiming the planet in places, and cause mutations? That's right, fallout from the use of nuclear weapons.

The RPM team seems like just another spinoff team of Rangers. The animal zords look more like show models for a potential "WildForce"-esque team than something meant to be weaponized and used as the last line of defence for humanity. But when the Venjix virus attacked,the RPM team was commissioned and refitted by Dr. K to protect Corinth.

Dr K. was abducted when she was a little girl, and was a fan of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Her love of a children's show she half remembers from before she was taken is what subconsciously made her design brightly colored super hero suits with vehicles that look like they have eyes and combine into a giant mech. This also explains where the term 'zord' came from in the RPM continuity.

Doctor K, inventor of the RPM Ranger Series, was robbed of her childhood, not allowing her to do things like a normal child wood. Pouring her imagination into her Ranger tech she used the zords as an outlet for stuff a child or a young kid could make (abstract animals with big googly anime eyes).

* Except Zordon would've had a [[Main/CrazyPrepared backup plan]] for that - most likely is that his back-up plan would have given the rangers access to the Dairanger suits when the Machine Empire attacked.
