* PlotTumor: Burai's subplot ended up taking a lot of screentime, particularly towards the end. Since we're talking about [[EnsembleDarkhorse Burai]], [[TropesAreNotBad no one's complaining.]]

** One notable instance is that even without pausing at the closeups of the stored Dino Bucklers, it's clear that the elaborate backsides are merely stickers, hence the toys. It's why, in their later appearance in the [[Film/ZyudenSentaiKyoryugerVsGobusters crossover movie]] with ''Kyoryuger'' and ''Abaranger'', the Dino Bucklers' props were actually the Legacy Power Morpher toys, albeit relabeled with the appropriate show label on the front, where the backs's designs were molded in and painted.

*** Speaking of ''Series/PrettyGuardianSailorMoon'', the Golem costumes here were later reused for that show.

* ToughActToFollow: Part of the reason why the season was considered SoOkayItsAverage by Japanese viewers was because it was the first Sentai season to come out after ''Series/ChoujinSentaiJetman,'' which is considered the Magnum Opus of the Showa Era.

to:

** This makes a lot of sense when you learn that the arrangements of the opening and ending themes were done by Kenji Yamamoto, whose serial plagiarism got him fired from his role as composer for ''Anime/DragonBallKai'' and got his soundtrack for the ''VideoGame/DragonBallZBudokai'' games replaced in the HD rerelease.

* TearJerker: [[spoiler: Burai's death. Kai's death may also qualify.]]
** A late episode when the imitation Zyurangers appear may count. For the first time in Sentai, rather than creating evil imitations for solely fighting the Sentai, this one is used to make Zyurangers look like bad guys, and it ''shows'' when a mother slapped Mei right on the face when she's just helping a kid, followed by the people throwing stones to the Zyuranger and driving them away. Hell, to hammer it home, aside of the lamentations of the heroes, we're also given with the second time Mei is visibly crying (the first time is [[spoiler:when Burai died]]). Of course, by the end they came back to life, but before that, it was a pretty powerful scene too.
** Bandora's sobbing fit when [[spoiler:Kai]] dies for the second time.

* BrokenBase: Between those who thinks Zyuranger on its own is awesome, links with Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers notwithstanding, and those who thinks that the series qualities decrease because they are going to see a lot of helpless little kids considered TheScrappy series-wide because [[ChildHater Bandora]] specifically targets them.

* FridgeLogic: In the final episode, [[spoiler: how did Kai survive the Dora Talos exploding long enough to make it back to Bandora Tower?]]
** Wait, in the final episode why did the Zyurangers [[spoiler: entrust the baby dinosaurs to children?!]] Yep, no possible way that can go wrong. To be fair, [[spoiler: the baby dinosaurs are the last pair of dinosaurs on Earth, and should the eggs they were hatched from be destroyed, then the dinosaurs would be forever extinct from the world.]]
*** To be both smart AND fair, [[spoiler: the baby dinosaurs should've been given to scientists or the authorities.]]

* NightmareFuel: Dai Satan and his laugh. Just the idea of a big blue floating head in the sky!
** The process of summoning Dai-Satan. First, 13 children at 10 years old get sucked into anything that has a reflection. Then they're all sealed while being aware into a tall, disturbing tower, with their face and hands visible, and suspended there, to be sacrificed for Dai Satan himself. That and during the process of summoning him, Bandora is supposed to be weakened and near death as she continues the ritual and to top it off she screams that she's gone blind and we clearly see blood running from her eyes, she does get restored to normal once she successfully summons Dai-Satan.
** Then there's [[BackFromTheDead what]] [[OneWingedAngel happens]] [[BodyHorror to]] Dora Franke. ''Goodness gracious''.
** Burai's nightmare before his death. Nothing's scarier than the thought of you dreaming of you about to die and it's going to happen... Except for Burai himself, when he saw that there's one boy about to get claimed soon, and that's when Burai started freaking out, it looks like for him, not saving the boy is scarier than going to the afterlife alone.
** ''Zyuranger'' in general is one of the scarier seasons of the series. And this is a season with heavy focus about kids.


Added DiffLines:

* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: The first segment of the full opening theme (which isn't played on the TV version, curiously enough) rips off various notes from the original ''Film/{{Total Recall|1990}}'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lsUZ1aIp4OE theme]].

** Some fans have remarked that Mei's schoolgirl disguise made her resemble Usagi from ''Series/PrettyGuardianSailorMoon'', a later Toei production.
