* MorePopularSpinoff: For some, ''HOPR'' is in a lot more demand than Linkara's main video project, ''Atop the Fourth Wall''. Even so, Linkara has said ''AT4W'' almost always takes priority over ''HOPR'' (helped by the fact he can only make ''HOPR'' episodes when new seasons have been released with their official [=DVDs=]).

* DramaticIrony: Example of this applying to him instead of the show during his review on ''Mystic Force'', where he comments that zord combination sequences look like "somebody took the Sentai footage and hit the fast forward button." Anybody that watched Magiranger would know that is more or less the case.



* ValuesDissonance: One of his biggest problems with ''Series/PowerRangersSamurai'' is the lack of care in adapting ''Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger'''s heavy focus on uniquely Japanese cultural values, such as PillarsOfMoralCharacter and familial honor being put on children to drive them to inherit the family business, so to speak, for a more global perspective. It comes to a head during his discussion of Antonio's post-introductory episode, with him regarding Antonio as the most heroic of the Rangers, since he willingly chose to become a super hero of his own free will despite the risks and worked his ass off to do it, while the script is steeped in more-traditionally-Japanese notions of obligation and deference.

*** As of recent, though, this seems to be subverted, since he has reviewed episodes of ''Zyuranger'' and ''Gokaiger'' as Patreon requests, and he gave them positive reviews, and odds are that with Saban skipping series as of late, he very well might end up watching the skipped series on his own.

* BrokenBase: Long term Power Rangers fans aren't always happy when a person is brought into the franchise via HOPR over actually watching the show, due to said fans having a tendency to spout Linkara's opinions (something he's spoken out against). This ranges from ''Ninja Storm'' going from a well-liked season to being OK, Carter Grayson suddenly being a badass on par with Tommy Oliver, and ''Mystic Force'' also dropping in popularity.
* CanonFodder: While Lewis doesn't directly engage in this for the show overall due to it being a serious review show, he does do this for Power Rangers as a whole, with speculations about the existence of Scorpius's forces if Zordon's energy wave was suppose to "destroy all evil", the physics and length of a year for the Power Rangers universe, why Aliens came to be accepted on earth so easily in less than 20 years, where [[PowerRangersJungleFury RJ got the morpher technology from]], and other matters that crop up thanks to having a shared universe.

* GrowingTheBeard: While fans generally disagree as to when HOPR officially hit its stride, most can agree that the first episode, covering ''Mighty Morphin'' Season 1, really wasn't that good, since it skipped CharacterDevelopment for anyone who wasn't Tommy, Bulk, or Skull (not even giving analysis for the villains), skipped the season's originally intended finale ("Doomsday") barring a passing mention, and didn't even bring up characters like Titanus or Scorpina. He eventually did release a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w6d0wh8g70Y re-edited version of season 1]] over a month after his video on ''Megaforce'', and addressed many of these criticisms.

** "When's the next History of Power Rangers coming out?"[[labelnote:Explanation]]Due to the series' lack of a schedule, it's a common question Linkara is asked by many friends and fellow reviewers in crossovers, and has since spread so that whenever anything TGWTG related is delayed or is taking its time coming out, Linkara's the one asked, even if he has no involvement in the project whatsoever.[[/labelnote]]

** Any time he complains about the Megaforce rangers getting too many Zords is this if you've seen ''Goseiger'' and know that there were Zords that weren't adapted - said zords are the Exotic Brothers, Mystic Brothers, and Datas Hyper[[note]]Exotic Brothers was only used once, and Datas Hyper wasn't used, since Tensou looks different from Datas; although it's never been revealed why Mystic Brothers wasn't used[[/note]].

* BiasSteamroller:
** Explicitly averted in his ''Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive'' review, where he not only goes out of his way to note when the season (which he considers the weakest in the franchise) does something right, such as [[RoboticReveal Mack's reveal]], but retroactively admits that he feels he was too hard on ''Series/PowerRangersTurbo''. Later, he does the same for ''Series/PowerRangersSamurai'', despite having an even lower opinion of it.
** And in the ''Series/PowerRangersJungleFury'' review, he starts out saying he was still a bit too hard on the show by not considering the budget issues the crew had to deal with.
** That said, he ''does'' state the series is an opinion piece, and not intended to be "unbiased," being openly from the perspective of a fan of the earlier shows looking at the whole franchise. He tries to avoid putting on NostalgiaGoggles, but he does point to the older seasons as examples for certain good character arcs ([[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers "Green with Evil"]] as giving something new each time), redemption stories ([[Series/PowerRangersInSpace Astronema]]'s arc is his first fallback for this), or for his preference for zords with unique characteristics (as opposed to the power up zords that later seasons used more).

Added DiffLines:

** In the ''Jungle Fury'' episode, Linkara complained that the Rhino Ranger didn't use the horn on his helmet as a weapon. Come ''Series/UchuSentaiKyuranger'', and the yellow ranger used his pointy visor as a weapon in the first episode.
