** [[invoked]]Also, [[spoiler:when Robo Knight comes right out of no where during the finale, despite the fact he was destroyed in a previous episode. He just magically appears without any explanation or foreshadowing, and then disappears again with none of the Rangers even acknowledging he was ever there in the first place.]] This comes so out of left field it leads Linkara to suffer a CreatorBreakdown for a few minutes.

* PragmaticAdaptation: Beginning in Season 2, Saban would continue to 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 zord 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).

* ExecutiveMeddling:[[invoked]] In his ''Dino Charge'' review, he goes on a tangent that recent interviews, one in paricular from writer James W. Bates, confirmed his suspicions from previous reviews that Jonathan Tzachor was uninterested in letting the writers give the characters story arcs, or any connections to other seasons despite Megaforce being a 20th anniversary season because in his mind it was "too boring". Haim Saban however had other ideas for the show, and Tzachor was fired and replaced with Judd Lynn. Bates [[ScrewThisImOutOfHere even left]] after ''Super Megaforce'' started because he got frustrated from not giving the characters and development.

** Zeo is an interesting take on the Magic vs. Technology theme as the Machine Empire represent the technological side while Rita and Zedd represent the Magical side. The Zeo Rangers in turn are the combination of both. A secondary theme for this season is Triumph, as the Rangers grew stronger this season from new zords, weapons, and the added strength that comes from the Zeo Crystal.

** Dino Thunder was about comparing and contrasting the past to the present, particularly with this season and Mighty Morphin'.

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Gives one to the Overdrive Rangers on their decision to leave just becuase they lost their powers, even showing clips of the rangers before them continung to fight despite the odds against the.



* RomanceOnTheSet[[invoked]]: Makes a typical "Aww, they should get married" joke about Ziggy & Dr. K's relationship, but expands it to note that the actors playing the characters actually ''did''.

** Another one revaled in the same interview was that the production staff wanted to get to ''Gokaiger'' immediatly for the anniversary and skip over ''Goseiger'', but their contract with Toei at the time prohibited them from skipping over a Sentai.

* SequelEscalation: The videos get progressively longer and more detailed as the series goes on. The Zordon-era episodes all come in under and hour long for each season, helped by Lewis highlighting the important parts since he's going from memory and the abundance of filler earlier in the show. After that, though, the episodes are broken into three and even four-part videos, often half an hour long each, as he brings up the greater amount of character development and the way that each series fits (or doesn't) into the greater patterns of the entire franchise. As of writing the latest episode, ''Megaforce'', is a whopping ''three hours long'' with a 44 page script.

** On the other hand, he seems to harbor particular dislike towards Alpha 5's replacement, Alpha 6. He also found Dimitria annoying for her schtick of presenting questions rather than answers, but admits she got better later on.

* 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.'''''



* PragmaticAdaptation: In the beginning of the review, Linkara notes that the production crew looked at ''Denji Sentai Megaranger'' and believed that the Sentai was going to be spaced themed... except they later learned that ''Megaranger'' was a electronic themed Sentai that just so happened to have space themed zords. Since the show was going to be cancelled after this season anyway, the crew decided to go with the space idea. And based on how succesful the season was, it worked out spectacularly!

* FranchiseOriginalSin: [[invoked]] The Growl Phone Morphers, the first (and unfotuently not the last) set of morphers that are cell phone based. He finds the idea stupid, lazy and it doesn't make them conpicuis to othe morphers. The only exceptions he has if they were transformed from other objects (the Mystic Force Morphers were wands that turned into Cell Phones), or if they look like Cell Phones but you use something else to morph (The Ovedrive Trackers used a friction spinning wheel to morph).

*** 2) During Zeo, Rocky gave Jason back the damaged Tyrannosaurus Power Coin when Jason came back as the Gold Ranger. Jaso would then find a way to repair the coin (as hinted back from ''In Space'' when Adam used the damaged Mastadon Power Coin).
*** 3) The official confirmation by Amit Bhuamik is that Jason got a new Power Coin from one of Lord Zedd's Dark Rangers that appeared in the comic book series. Linkara does admit though that may not be plosable given the circumstance of comic continuty to the show.
