** JohnnyYongBosch (Adam, the second Black Ranger and Green Zeo Ranger) is very well known in the anime dubbing community, especially as Vash from ''{{Trigun}}'', Ichigo from ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', and Lelouch from ''CodeGeass''.

* NarmCharm: In general, the adult fandom doesn't so much ''accept'' the inherent cheese as eagerly snarf it down.

** Averted with the milestone anniversary teamups, however, as Wild Force's Time Force teamup two-parter, as well as it's red ranger-centric anniversary episode "Forever Red" are often considered to be some of the series' best episodes, while Operation Overdrive's "Once a Ranger" at least has a number of fans for bringing back Fan Favorites like Bridge Carson and Adam Park (with the latter character making his first appearance in nine years).

* LGBTFanbase: AN argument can be made for the whole franchise, starting with the dozens of attractive young men running around in rainbow spandex. One could also cite the NoHuggingNoKissing rule as playing into it; many of the friendships which are meant to be platonic are so emotionally charged that they come off as HoYay. Many teams have had characters that that fandom at large views as coded gay or bi ([[Series/PowerRangersLightspeedRescue Kelsey]], [[Series/PowerRangersMysticForce Vida]], [[Series/PowerRangersSamurai Jayden and Antonio]], or [[Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge Riley]] for example). It also helps that many of the ranger alumni are LGBT+ allies, and have participated in [[http://www.morphinlegacy.com/legacy-database/noh8-rangers NoH8 photoshoots]].
** With ''Series/PowerRangersSPD'' we can also point specifically to Doggie Cruger, who became an instant BaraGenre icon. His counterpart from SPD's source material, Series/TokusouSentaiDekaranger, is submissive (and VERY muscular) in almost every erotic pic of him (even if it's straight!)

** 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 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.

** The Nickelodeon tenure in general. While Disney's seasons were hit-or-miss, both ''Samurai'' and ''Megaforce'' have seriously underperformed. The acting is bad ([[NarmCharm note that normally people don't mind this]], so it's that much worse), the plots are weak, usually just pulled straight from the Sentai, and the writers in general seem to be putting in a very minimal effort. ''Dino Charge'' however seems to have [[GrowingTheBeard taken the necessary step in the right direction]].

* 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'')

** This is a common feeling regarding ''Series/TokumeiSentaiGoBusters'' and ''Series/ResshaSentaiToQGer'', the first two series which were skipped since the early years of the show. Many fans feel like skipping these more unconventional seasons for those that were likely to be more popular was a poor move and think they could have been adapted into great seasons.

* MyRealDaddy: Judd Lynn is pretty much considered as the ''real'' daddy of PR shows, as he's the one who kept the original Power Rangers shows into favored ones, noted that there has been decline in quality after his departure in the middle of Time Force. Him being called back to help finish up RPM is also a factor why that show is a favorite. After Jonathan Tzachor descended into ScapegoatCreator, the news that Judd Lynn returns as the full-season director of Dino Charge is met with MUCH applause.

Him being called back to help finish up RPM is also a factor why that show is a favorite. It is also worth mentioning that Judd Lynn was responsible of the second half of ''Turbo'', which salvaged it from 'really bad' to 'at least watchable'.
