* BadassDecay[=/=]VillainDecay: Name a villain who wasn't subject to this. Lord Zedd gets special mention, as he had to be toned down after the MoralGuardians deemed him too scary. As a result, he went from being a serious and scary villain to a comedy relief villain like Rita.

** It's worth noting that Saban ''did'' reportedly intend on using the ''Dairanger'' suits in ''Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy'' as a team of Ancient Rangers, but thanks to the show's massive TroubledProduction, those plans were scrapped, meaning that it wasn't until ''Series/PowerRangersMegaforce'' that they became a part of the ''Power Rangers'' canon.

* FanonDiscontinuity: ''A Friend In Need'', the PoorlyDisguisedPilot for ''Series/MaskedRider'', largely gets this treatment from fans, due to the fact that the aforementioned ''Masked Rider'' is widely given this treatment as well. Interestingly, the 3 parter is practically stand-alone (it's referenced once later, but that's it), meaning that if one was to jump straight into ''Ninja Quest'' after finishing season 2, they wouldn't miss anything.

** A good number of lines delivered when the Rangers are morphed. Turned UpToEleven mid-season two when Jason, Trini and Zack are voiced by sound-alikes due to their actors quitting; while Zack's replacement voice actually does a passable impression of Walter Jones, Trini's doesn't sound much like Thuy Trang, while Jason is voiced by someone who not only sounds absolutely nothing like Austin St. John, but simply cannot act to save his life.

** Tommy Oliver can get more of this reception in modern times. Make no mistake, he was massively popular back during the 90s and quickly gained EnsembleDarkhorse status due to his run as the Green and White Rangers. However, once those 90s kids grew older, reactions to Tommy's character became more mixed. There are still quite a lot of people out there who love Tommy and consider him to the one Ranger who pretty much ''made'' the show. However, there are more people now who consider Tommy to be an overrated InvincibleHero who upstaged all the other Rangers and took all the spotlight for himself. And of course, there are fans who consider Tommy a decent character in his own right but also feel that the writers shouldn't have focused so much on him while taking away most of the spotlight from the other Rangers.

** "On Fins and Needles", where Rita casts a spell that turns Jason and Tommy against each other, is a tad uncomfortable knowing that there was RealLife bad blood between Austin St. John and Creator/JasonDavidFrank for a while.

As for the Rangers themselves, goody-good role models for the youth of the nineties, or {{Jerkass}}es to two people (possibly with learning troubles) perceived to be bullies but only needed friends/find out the rangers' identities.

* HarsherInHindsight: Billy getting the most love interests out of the entire cast might seem HilariousInHindsight when you learn that actor David Yost is homosexual...until you ''also'' learn that some of the staff gay-bashing him behind the scenes (and nobody actually doing anything about it) was the reason he left the series. Not to mention that him having that many girlfriends may have been [[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday a desperate attempt by the producers to have him NOT seem homosexual]] (even though he [[StraightGay didn't]]).

* NightmareFuel:
** During "Green With Evil", Jason is trapped in the Dark Dimension with Goldar...and without his morpher. It's made very clear that he ''cannot'' beat Goldar without his powers, and he has to resort to hiding in the smoke and praying he doesn't get stabbed.
** Lord Zedd freaked kids out when he first appeared in 1994... and considering that he was a skinless, brain-exposed, deep-voiced megalomaniac who kicked Rita out of the series in five minutes, it's no surprise why.
** In "Changing Of The Zords" when Lord Zedd is teleported into the Command Center. The whole Command Center shakes, the Rangers are noticeably terrified, and even Zordon seems stunned by this.



* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Johnny Yong Bosch became such a famous actor and returned to crossover episodes so many times that his character is nicely remembered.

* StealthInsult: When Ninjor shows the rangers their new Zords, he says they're based on cunning and logic like ninjas, with a snide line saying that's better then the brute force of dinosaurs (like what Zordon gave them).



* TearJerker: A real life example. The news of Trini's actress Thuy Trang getting killed in a car accident devastated many fans and staff members alike. [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments Many fans to this day still have and make memorials and tributes dedicated to her out of respect for her passing.]]



** Also, Lord Zedd's Dark Rangers could have been a precursor to the Psycho Rangers.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Tommy, the team's SixthRanger, started out as evil, but eventually turned to the side of good. Later on, Lord Zedd would recruit an entire team of Dark Rangers, who eventually turned good. Yet Zordon never recruits them as a second team (either a back-up or a team to protect Stone Canyon) that would use the suits from ''Series/GoseiSentaiDairanger''.

** If Austin, Walter, and Thuy stayed a little longer, then Jason, Zack, and Trini would have been given a proper send-off, like they've done with Kimberly in season 3. We would have also seen them interact with their future replacements and not suffer from being DemotedToExtra. Lastly, Tommy would officially be promoted to leader after the power transfer.

* FanonDiscontinuity:
** Series/MaskedRider. All the times Super Sentai and Kamen Rider started teaming up since Shinkenger met Kamen Rider Decade in 2009... Power Rangers did it first with the crossover with Masked Rider/Kamen Rider Black RX in 1995[[note]]Technically speaking, if one is only looking at what happened in the source material as opposed to original content, 2009 WAS the first time an official Rider-Sentai crossover happened[[/note]].
** And that's not going into the [[{{Recut}} Reversion]], even.

** ''White Light'', episodes 17 and 18 of season 2, sees Tommy rejoin the team as the SixthRanger with White Ranger powers. The next time Sentai (as well as Power Rangers) would use Dinosaurs as a theme in a show, the SixthRanger [[Series/BakuryuuSentaiAbaranger would also]] [[Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder be White]]. For bonus hilarity, the team colors for seasons 2 and 3 of ''Mighty Morphin'' are exactly the same as those of ''Abaranger'' if one includes the self-proclaimed Abaranger[[note]]Abarepink[[/note]].
