## The [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers first three seasons]] of ''Power Rangers'' are the best ''Power Rangers'' shows.
## The seasons with Tommy are the best ''Power Rangers'' shows.
## The seasons up to ''[[Series/PowerRangersInSpace in Space]]'' are the best ''Power Ranger'' shows.
## Only ''Power Rangers'' seasons of the Saban era (anything up until ''[[Series/PowerRangersTimeForce Time Force]]'') are the best ''Power Rangers'' shows.
## Only ''Power Rangers'' made by the original production team (until ''[[Series/PowerRangersWildForce Wild Force]]'') are the best ''Power Rangers'' shows. Notable because the current executive producer, Johnathan Tzachor (who held the same title with MMPR Productions), is a member of this camp.
## Only ''Power Rangers'' before Bruce Kalish became Executive Producer (up to and including ''[[Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder Dino Thunder]]'') are the best ''Power Rangers'' shows.
## Same as above but including Bruce Kalish's first season (''[[Series/PowerRangersSPD SPD]]'') are the best ''Power Rangers'' shows.
## Same as above but including the final Disney season, and the first without Bruce Kalish (''[[Series/PowerRangersRPM RPM]]'') are the best ''Power Rangers'' shows.

* {{Macekre}}: While chopping up the ''Sentai'' episodes is common, season 3 of the original show really has to take the cake. In ''Kakuranger'', the robots which would become the Shogunzords appeared ''first'', with the proto-Ninjazords as the MidSeasonUpgrade. Saban flipped it around since the larger, humanoid Shogunzords would seem more natural as upgrades. The best example: the first MonsterOfTheWeek in season 3, Vampirus, comes from ''episode 36'' of ''Kakuranger''. And let's not get into [=Zyu2=] and ''Dairanger''...

** To a lesser extent, a more recent one is Saban's decision to start skipping ''Sentai'' series - while technically, the first sentai series to be skipped was ''Series/GoseiSentaiDairanger'', ''Series/TokumeiSentaiGobusters'' became the first series to be intentionally skipped in favor of adapting ''Series/ZyudenSentaiKyoryuger''[[note]]''Dairanger'' was only skipped because Saban couldn't find a place to use the footage of the core 5 rangers, although the zord footage, as well as the white ranger footage, were used in season 2 of ''Mighty Morphin''[[/note]]. The fact that Saban did this immediately after having to adapt both ''Series/TensouSentaiGoseiger'' as well as ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger'' in ''Megaforce'' due to contractual obligations[[note]]Many fans expected Saban to skip ''Goseiger'' and adapt ''Gokaiger'', the 35th ''Sentai'' series and the one that is a MilestoneCelebration for that franchise, for the 20th ''PR'' series[[/note]]. Generally, camps can be split into 2 groups: people who are glad that X[[note]]''Go-Busters''/''Series/ResshaSentaiToQger''[[/note]] is being skipped while Y[[note]]''Kyoryuger''/''Series/ShurikenSentaiNinninger''[[/note]] is being adapted, and people who are irritated that Y is being adapted while X isn't.

** Sam, ''SPD'''s SixthRanger, is generally considered one of the franchise biggest Scrappys. He's basically a filler character to play as the team's sixth ranger, since he was written with no character, has no character development, and was used as little as possible.

* ItsTheSameSoItSucks: A common complaint about the Neo Saban era is that with the exception of ''Samurai'', the villains have all been aliens so far. Not helping things is that regardless of [[Series/DobutsuSentaiZyuohger which]] [[Series/UchuuSentaiKyuranger sentai]] Saban adapts after ''Ninja Steel'', the villains will likely also be aliens due to the fact that both shows have aliens as their villains.

** Interestingly enough, due to Saban not adapting ''Series/GoseiSentaiDairanger''[[note]]although the white ranger costume was adapted from that series, the core team kept the ''Zyuranger'' suits; as such, the white ranger will usually be treated as more of a seventh member of ''Mighty Morphin'' in merchandise, as opposed to having 2 separate teams for each of the two powers; ''Series/PowerRangersMegaforce'' takes the former stance as well, listing Tommy's White Ranger powers as "Mighty Morphin White" as opposed to bundling them with the Squadron powers that ''Dairanger'' was adapted as[[/note]], every 5th series[[note]]this counts the Alien Rangers mini-series as a separate series[[/note]] with a new set of ranger suits (as in the suits are traded out completely) ends up being a good season, whereas the one before (coincidentally, it's always an anniversary series) usually is the one that bombs - ''In Space'', ''Ninja Storm'', ''Jungle Fury'' and ''Dino Charge'' had the 5th, 10th, 15th, and 20th set of costumes[[note]]although had ''[=Go-Busters=]'' not been skipped, ''Dino Charge'' would have had the 21st set[[/note]]; ''Turbo'', ''Wild Force'', ''Operation Overdrive'', and ''Megaforce'', the 4 respective anniversary series, had the 4th, 9th, 14th, and 18th/19th[[note]]Megaforce'' adapted 2 sets of costumes, the ones from ''Series/TensouSentaiGoseiger'' and ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger''[[/note]] sets of costumes. At the moment, ''Ninja Steel'' is set to be the first exception to this rule, as the ''Super'' half will be the 25th anniversary, yet the series is on its 22nd set of ranger suits[[note]]whether or not this trope is played straight with the 30th series will depend on if Saban stays on Nickelodeon, since due to Nickelodeon's "20 episodes per season" rule, Saban has been skipping even numbered ''Sentai'' series, meaning that the 30th "Power Rangers" series will adapt the 45th Sentai series and have the 24th set of costumes, while the 35th series will adapt the 51st Sentai, and have the 27th set of costumes[[/note]].

* SubbingVersusDubbing: In this case, "subbing" means cleaving as closely as possible to the source material[[note]]best exemplified by ''Wild Force'', ''Mystic Force'', and ''Samurai''[[/note]] and "dubbing" equals PragmaticAdaptation[[note]]best exemplified by ''In Space'', ''Lost Galaxy'', and ''RPM''[[/note]]. Notably, this debate only applies to the franchise's internal politics; "dubbed" series tend to be better received by the fans than "subbed" series (with the exception of ''Time Force'').
