* NarmCharm: Shane "Goose" Gooseman's very name. Seriously, Shane ''Gooseman''? While it's easy to see that his first name is obviously a reference to the 1950s western classic ''Film/{{Shane}}'', his surname is just plain silly, even for an 80s cartoon. Then again, the inherent silliness of a name like ''Gooseman'' might just add to the show's darker than usual yet still very retro 80s charm.

** The theme song is a very 80s ClicheStorm but damn if it isn't catchy.

* SpiritualSuccessor: Modern fans sometimes explain this as ''Franchise/MassEffect'' [[XMeetsY meets]] ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' with a glorious dose of "what if they were made in TheEighties?"

Added DiffLines:

** AmericansHateTingle: While the German dub was ''amazing'' and some of the characters may have come across even better in the German dub than the original English, Doc's dialogue was CutAndPasteTranslation at ''best'', which obscured the fact that most of his lines are pure SarcasmMode.

* ShipToShipCombat: May be the only fandom on Earth where it's ''completely {{Inverted}}.'' Despite a sizable body of FanFic, most of the fanbase goes with the "canon" or WordOfGod 'ships; [[HappilyMarried Zach / Eliza]], [[ShipTease Goose / Niko]], and [[GiveGeeksAChance Doc / Maya]].
* TheScrappy[=/=]TheLoad: At Buzzwang to some fans.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: Genocide, on-screen death, a DatingCatwoman (or at least shagging her) situation in "Renegade Rangers," slavery, torture, ''massive'' aversions of NeverSayDie (with the on-screen body count to back it up)... even Mandell admits the show's writing "flew over the heads of six year olds."

* BizarroEpisode: Some people dislike "Mothmoose", and any episode featuring Buzzwang, because their comedic tone clashes with the straight adventure episodes favored by fans. Also, "Mothmoose" doesn't feature ''any'' of the Rangers--the heroes are Zach's children and the Kiwi Kids.
** Which is {{lampshaded}} by Commander Walsh explaining that the Rangers aren't available.

** A lot of the Rangers fanficcers also enjoy {{Series/Leverage}}, part because Hardison and Spencer's banter can read a ''lot'' like Doc and Goose's.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: [[spoiler:The subplot regarding the FateWorseThanDeath for Eliza Foxx, wife of Zachary Foxx, is often glossed over to the point of being pretty much forgotten by everyone in the show, including Zachary himself. When one learns that Nico had a crush on him some episodes later you're tempted to wonder why he didn't go after her... until you remember that he is in fact ''married''.]]

* CompleteMonster: The BigBad is [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen The Queen of the Crown]], an [[EvilSorcerer evil]] [[SorcerousOverlord sorceress]] who starts off by ambushing Kirwin, and putting a heavy bounty on humans for every two-bit thug in the galaxy. We find out that she's mashing the humans down for LifeEnergy to [[PoweredByAForsakenChild power constructs through which she can see, hear, and administer her Empire]]. It's not only an exceedingly painful process, [[AndIMustScream but the poor bastard is fully awake and aware of what's happened]]. We also see that she slaughtered millions on the planet of Tortuna, leaving a few, domed cities behind in a lot of wasteland. She also was hunting humans because the ''last'' race she used to power Slaverlords has been hunted to near-extinction and she needed replacements. If that wasn't bad enough, she enslaves an entire planet, making the inhabitants work in concentration camp conditions to build a massive hyperspace cannon she uses to [[DefaceOfTheMoon blow a chunk out of Earth's moon]], threatening to do worse to Earth unless they gave her 5000 humans in tribute. On a personal level, she uses the only psychocrystal she's made from a human ([[TheHero Zach's]] [[IHaveYourWife wife]]) to commit MindRape nightly on ''both of them.''
