* ItsTheSameItSucks:[[invoked]]: Complains about how the 2 female rangers have names that are very similar to the female rangers of the previous season,

** Referring to the Megaforce Rangers' nameless hometown as "City Town".Town"[[note]]he does acknowledge the actual name of the hometown, Harwood County, but notes that it sounds like really poor naming[[/note]].



** He constantly speculates on plans the showrunners had that they later abandoned, because a lot of plot points seem like they're going in one direction, and then don't. These include killing off Vrak, extending the tenure of the insectoid villains to last the full season, and destroying the Rangers' powers at the end of the first season. In the next episode, [[IKnewIt he reveals that some of his suggests]] ''[[IKnewIt were]]'' [[IKnewIt ideas that the writers wanted to pursue]], but [[ExecutiveMeddling Jonathan Tzachor shot down]][[note]]for example, he suggested replacing Mr Burley with a ranger alumni...and that was the idea that James Bates originally had, wanting David Yost to reprise his role of Billy and act as a mentor to Noah[[/note]].

* ArbitrarySkepticism: The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles do not believe in the Power Rangers, claiming that they are "Pretend" and "Imaginary." Barring the fact that Angel Grove has monster-preparedness drills and evacuation plans, and that the rangers had been on TV before, or that monster attacks frequently made the news, the point is again made: These are Teenaged Mutated reptiles who train in the art of ninjitsu. Even if that wasn't enough, the person they're talking to is Astronema and Elgar, ''who are space aliens. '''And the Turtles know this.'''''

* TheChessmaster: Notes that Astronema is easily the most competent villain up to this point in the franchise, avoided the same petty plans that other villains did and kept her eye either on defeating the rangers or causing destruction.

* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: When the Rangers claim to Prince Phillip that a robot doesn't have the same abilities or wisdom of a human, Linkara needles the show by noting Mack from Operation Overdrive (who ''was'' a robot and was basically indistinguishable from normal humans, not to mention was the ''Red Ranger'').

** The changeover in powers occurs for no reason, when it would have been easy to write in their original powers being destroyed at the end of the first half of the season; after all, that was usually how ''Mighty Morphin''' handled power changes, and it would have served to highlight the danger the Armada posed.
** While he dislikes the show using suits from ''Super Sentai'' seasons that weren't adapted into ''Power Rangers'' seasons, if there was no way to get around using those suits, build some backstory from it. Explain these powers were used by Rangers from before the ''Mighty Morphin''' era, or by Rangers from another planet -- both are things established to have been done, after all. Or maybe there's a Ranger team whose exploits were lost to history, or they meet a representative of another Ranger team who gives them the powers.
** While "Ernie's Juice Bar" is a place again, it's an entirely different character and an entirely different location. They couldn't get Lieutenant Stone or Bulk back to own the juice bar? Likewise, why couldn't the season have been set in Angel Grove, instead of the unnamed town it is in? There could be a Power Rangers museum, monuments to the past teams, adults who grew up knowing the Rangers[[note]]the only reason they couldn't get the original Ernie back, as he noted, was because Richard Genelle [[AuthorExistenceFailure died of a heart attack in 2008]][[/note]].

** Fight scenes that don't use many special effects (he derided the Kalish era for the infamous "Kalishplosions," and didn't really care for the ''Dino Thunder''/''Ninja Storm'' team-up fight due to it being a "special effects-fest"), and seasons that have good unmorphed fights.
*** Although he did say that the initial Dino Thunder/Ninja Storm fight reminded him of a superhero brawl, which he did enjoy. Given his other show, his appeal for this is quite evident.

* InnocuouslyImportantEpisode: Linkara will use this trope a lot, normally pointing out at least one episode (if not more) in a season that, at first glace, appears to be pointless {{Filler}} only to show that it actually is quite important in fleshing out the setting, gives great CharacterDevelopment, or ties in nicely to that season's CentralTheme. This is also the reason why he has declined offers from fans to be told which episodes in a season are important and which ones he should skip, as he likes to decide himself whether an episode is substantial to the plot or skippable filler.

* SealedEvilInACan: Linkara points out the series' use of this trope since the franchise's beginning during the ''Jungle Fury'' review, stating that the forces of good seemed to not focus on permentally defeating evil, preferring to just lock [[BigBad Big Bads]] away and hope no one releases them.

* SeriousBusiness: Averted completely in every sense of the word. Linkara's a huge Power Rangers fan but he's also not afraid to make fun of the silly and goofy elements of the series as well as the plot holes and bad moments. He's also a good sport about parodies, saying that he loves most parodies of the Power Rangers, highlighting that his favourites are the Website/CollegeHumor sketch and the Animaniacs sketch "Super Strong Warner Siblings".

* {{Squee}}: On Twitter, Lewis said he was "holding back an epic scream of delight" after he got a package from a fan that included not only an autographed picture of Christopher Khayman Lee (Andross from ''In Space''), but also a letter from Lee in which he said he was a big fan of both HOPR and Atop the Fourth Wall, '''and''' a comic he had written himself.

* PragmaticAdaptation: Beginning in Season 2, Saban would use footage from the next two sentai's after ''Zyuranger'' (''Dairanger'' and ''Kakuranger'') but only using the sentai footage in limits (zord battles mainly). Linkara doesn't mind it however as it made the ''Zyuranger'' suits the more iconic features of Power Rangers, and that the new zords introduced at the beginning of each season felt like actual upgrades compared to later seasons.
** That isn't to say that it came without problems however. In the beginning of Season 2, they still had ''Zyu2'' footage to use, so the earlier thunderzord battles had obvious cuts into the footage, and the monster costumes from later seasons were limited to said zord footage, or stand alone footage from the sentai (that's if they couldn't get the costumes overseas).

* FollowTheLeader[[invoked]]: In the updated review, Linkara notes with {{Irony}} that Saban used the pre-teen turned ranger idea based off their other show ''Series/BigBadBeetleborgs'', which was beating ''Turbo'' in ratings. It failed because ''Beetleborgs'' established themselves from the start that these are pre-teen children that become superheros, while Power Rangers started with teenagers. So the addition of having a child superhero with young adults just seemed odd and stupid.

** In terms of villains, he considers Divatox one of these. He explains that, well... the first villain was Rita Repulsa, an Empress of Evil. The next Big Bad to show up was Lord Zedd, who was even ''more'' powerful, and was the "Emperor of Evil." The next villains after that were the Machine Empire, which was implied to be on a massive rampage throughout the cosmos, conquering star system after star system... and they were so powerful that the previous Big Bads were sent running to the M51 Galaxy. And then the new villain, Divatox came along, and... she's a space pirate in a submarine. It's a bit of a letdown from "Interstellar Empire."

Even though he notes they couldn't do much with him as it would mean shooting a lot of original footage for him, he's still glad that they did create a ranger without being tied down to the sentai footage too much.

Linkara was especially frustrated that the rangers actually agreed with him that they weren't doing enough for the planet despite all their efforts to it keep safe from pollution, and that the rangers' devotion should not have needed to be tested when Animus revealed it was all a SecretTestOfCharacter. He also points that Animus never took back what he said about humanity.

However, it bears more similarities to the original Dragonzord, and why couldn't it have been rebuilt from that zord, or the Dragonzord be modified into the Q-Rex? It was never destroyed like so many zords were, it's still sleeping in the ocean last we saw.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: [[invoked]]Feels that ''Dino Charge'' is a direct counter to all the problems of ''Megaforce''; likeable characters that get time to shine and develop, interesting villains and not too many of them, the mentor is actually someone who helps and advises the team, and new zords and power-ups are given in natural flow with the developing story.

* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: With 10 core rangers and three main villains (one of which has a fiance and another who is technically two characters by way of JekyllAndHyde) Linkara notes that there just wasn't enough time to give everyone CharacterDevelopment. He does, however, note that while many characters don't develop almost all of them at least had fleshed out personalities (a huge improvement over ''Megaforce'') and that the story of the show doesn't suffer for it. He is also thankful that despite there being so many characters, there was only one primary 'villain general' this season in Fury, as opposed to other seasons that usually have several that rotate on a regular basis.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: [[invoked]] Much like with the proposal for ''Hexagon'', he mentions ''Power Rangers Cyber Corps'', the proposal Amit Bhuamik made for a ''Series/TokumeiSentaiGobusters'' adaptation [[note]] It would have also retconned ''RPM'' by saying the events took place on Mirinoi, the planet fetured on ''Lost Galaxy'' [[/note]]. He notes that it would've been awesome for people who were into Continuity porn like him, it wasn't for the younger audience, which is who Power Rangers ultimately is for.

* JustForFun/XMeetsY: On the look of Lord Zedd, "Just ''look'' at this guy--this is what [[Franchise/{{Alien}} H.R. Giger]] would create if he wanted to make a ''supervillain''!"
