* NarmCharm: Blowing up a city with explosive feathers is... okay, it's pretty cheesy (even for Power Rangers). But the episode does its darn best to make it pretty believable.



* NightmareFuel: The Curse of the Cobra, with Ryan suffering and writhing in pain every time he morphs, with it coming incredibly close to outright killing him.

The Curse of the Cobra, with Ryan suffering and writhing in pain every time he morphs, with it coming incredibly close to outright killing him.him.
** The end of the episode where Diabolico dies. From Impus turning into a cocoon onward, to Queen Bansheera announcing herself to the Rangers... not helping is the legitimately good score the series has makes the cocoon descending from the sky ''actually'' unnerving. (Not helping is that on the VHS release, the cliffhanger of Impus' cocoon hovering over the city was a cliffhanger).
** Queen Banshera's deformed form is not a pretty sight.

* 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.

** Creator/NeilKaplan voiced Diabolico here, and frequently had to deal with giant robots. The next year, he [[Anime/TransformersRobotsInDisguise became one]], and in 2015 [[WesternAnimation/VoltronLegendaryDefender went right back to being a villain who hates giant robots]] (although Zarkon is more like Bansheera compared to Diabolico.

** 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'''.

* {{Expy}}: The blue ranger is a Asian-American man, the green ranger is a bald African-American man, the pink ranger is a blonde girl, the yellow ranger is a brunette girl who's crazier then the the girly pink ranger, the sixth ranger is a sibling to one of the five main rangers, and the red ranger is a Caucasian-American hunk. If this seems familiar, it's because it's the exact same thing they had one season earlier with the Lost Galaxy team.

** A major villain from a previous series is revived for a crossover and teams up with a villain exclusively created for that crossover, and when they come back, they are wearing a mask. Am I talking about [[Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy Trakeena]] in ''Trakeena's Revenge'' teaming up with Triskill, or [[Series/KamenRiderGaim Ryoma Sengoku]] in ''[[Series/KamenRiderDrive Movie War Full Throttle]]'' teaming up with Megahex?

** Carter Grayson. His preference for using blasters and [[DullSurprise having the personality of a wooden board]] were the major reasons why he was so hated. However, over the years he was RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap in hindsight thanks to his {{Badass}} attitude, tough demeanor and all around Awesomeness.

* HilariousInHindsight: Could the Lightspeed Rangers be secretly funded and operated by the [[Series/ResidentEvil Umbrella Corporation]]? Considering their ultimate Zord literally functions by [[CastFromHitPoints sucking away their life force]], it's more possible than you might think...

** Also, their transformation sequence is pretty awesome in and of itself. It is probably one of the more elaborate sequences on the show to date and it shows very well.
