* SoBadItsGood: Before ''In Space'', it was almost ''universally'' considered the only reason anybody watched it. It has since gotten better, but its overall cheesy charm means that this trope still stands.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: With the Gokaiger footage coinciding with the series' 20th anniversary, you'd think it would make sense to go from Super Samurai straight into that. Unfortunately, Saban was contractually obligated not to skip any Super Sentai series, and Nickelodeon had messed things up by halving the number of episodes in a season, forcing Saban to split the Shinkenger adaptation over two years. The best Saban could do at that point was to merge Goseiger and Gokaiger into one story, so that Gokaiger is at least closely related to the anniversary.

** 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.

* MagnumOpus: ''In Space'' is this for the Zordon Saban Era, ''Time Force'' is this for the post-Zordon Saban Era, ''Dino Thunder'' and ''RPM'' are this for the Non-Kalish Disney seasons, ''SPD'' is this for the Kalish Era, and ''Dino Charge'' is so far shaping up to be this for the Neo-Saban Era.

* DorkAge: ''Turbo'' (the first half anyways)and Bruce Kalish's run on the show, ''SPD'' through ''Jungle Fury'', tend to be considered this (Although each season bar ''Overdrive'' has a notable fanbase, and nowadays ''Mystic Force'' and ''Jungle Fury'' are VindicatedByHistory). Also a specific period during season 2 of ''Mighty Morphin''' after Jason, Zack and Trini's actors left the show, before their characters leave ("Power Transfer II"), because their characters were in the show but only using stock footage and while morphed using bad dubbers for their dialog. Nowadays the New Saban Era (''Samurai, Megaforce'') are seen as bringing in a new age.

** 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]].

* ParvumOpus: ''Turbo'', ''Operation Overdrive'', ''Samurai/Super Samurai'', and ''Megaforce/Super Megaforce'' are considered to be the worst with all of them having one or more problems of TroubledProduction (''Turbo'' and ''Super Megaforce''), TheyChangedItNowItSucks (''Operation Overdrive'' and ''Megaforce/Super Megaforce''), and ItsTheSameNowItSucks (''Samurai/Super Samurai'' and ''Megaforce/Super Megaforce''). ''Lightspeed Rescue'' and ''Wild Force'' were originally considered this, but they were VindicatedByHistory.

** Another one is how seasons that are based on fan-favorite Super Sentai seasons end up being poorly recieved (Series/PowerRangersTurbo, Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive, Series/PowerRangersSamurai, and Series/PowerRangersMegaforce) while adaptations of Sentai seasons that were either bad or SoOkayItsAverage ended up being decent seasons (Series/PowerRangersZeo, Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy, Series/PowerRangersRPM, and Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge).
