* AlasPoorVillain: Loki being blasted to death by an unwilling Diabolico (the Queen having taken control of his body). With his dying words, Loki laments how all he wanted to do was serve his Queen, and how while he wasn't the smartest, he was more loyal than most- and how now it seemed like it was just a big waste. He tells Diabolico in his dying breaths that it's not too late for him either. And when Diabolico ''does'' fight back, he just gets brainwashed and turned into a super demon for the Rangers to battle. [[spoiler: He makes up for it in the end, however- helping Carter to get out of the Tomb of Forever and helping to seal it for good- screwing over Bansheera in the process.]]

* EpilepticTrees: A common theory way, WAY back was that Captain Mitchell (whose first name is William) was actually a futuristic Billy from seasons 1-4. {{Jossed}} when ''Time Force'' confirmed that it took place in 2001, and Lightspeed in 2000. Billy didn't have time to have an eighteen-year-old daughter. ([[Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder Not that the lack of time]] [[Series/PowerRangersSamurai has stopped other series...]])

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Nearly every human-sized monster gets blown up, and Carter says "Mission Accomplished", except that Jinxer always brings them back to life and megazord-sized. Saying "Mission Accomplished" except the threat is far from over, and has actually gotten worse? Seems like President Bush's infamous 2003 moment, but ''Lightspeed Rescue'' aired in 2000.

* MoralEventHorizon: Queen Bansheera does truly horrible things. She crosses the line when Olympius, her son, ends up stuck in the local equivalent of Hell; she opts to ''leave him there'' for being useless enough to get stuck there in the first place, and seems to take perverse pleasure in doing it, too.

*** Her true form is just as bad.

** If you've watched the source material, any episode that suggests Carter and Dana are interested in one another, since their sentai counterparts are '''siblings'''[[note]]unlike ''Series/PowerRangersMegaforce'', where something similar happened, this would have happened regardless of which rangers Carter and Dana were, since in ''GoGoV'', the entire team was a family[[/note]].

** Vypra, also from the same season, was not so lucky. The large reason why she was so hated was due to her portrayer's [[{{Narm}} notoriously bad acting]], even ''[[UpToEleven worse]]'' than the typical ''PowerRangers'' fare.

* VindicatedByHistory: To a degree. Keep in mind when Lightspeed came out it followed fan favorite seasons ''Series/PowerRangersInSpace'' and ''Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy'' and was succeeded by another fan favorite season ''Series/PowerRangersTimeForce'', so it was generally regarded as one of the worst with the possible exception of ''Series/PowerRangersTurbo''. But after that would come come much more panned seasons such as ''Series/PowerRangersWildForce'', ''Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive'', and ''Series/PowerRangersSamurai'', and ''Lightspeed'' has fared a lot better in comparison.

* {{Narm}}: Just about all of Vypra's dialogue would make any viewer laugh because of the incredibly bad acting.

* MemeticLoser: The old lady in the ''Lost Galaxy'' crossover who [[FlatEarthAtheist doesn't believe in monsters]] has been near-unanimously declared the single stupidest person in the history of the franchise.

* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Queen Bansheera]] is probably the [[BadBoss worst boss]] in the history of the entire franchise. The [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen queen of the demons]], Bansheera returns to power by callously sucking the life out of one and forces Diabolico, her once loyal general, to open fire on his enemies without caring her most loyal minion Loki, whose only desire has ever been to serve her, is caught in the blast and dies. Diabolico has his mind forcibly erased to serve as her pawn. Her own son, Olympius fares little better, and Bansheera once ordered him abandoned to his fate while laughing. He is forced to fight alongside a brainwashed Diabolico, and his death provokes no feeling in her whatsoever. In addition, Bansheera attempts to open a gateway to the demon realm, allowing all demon-kind to pour out and overwhelm humanity.

* TearJerker: You can't help but feel for Captain Mitchell who was forced to [[SadisticChoice allow his son to be taken by demons or let him fall to his death]]. He never forgave himself for what happened.
