** The base broke even further on this issue as a result of [[Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge the next series]], which became the first series to outright skip [[Series/TokumeiSentaiGobusters a Sentai]], with arguments flaring up over if Saban should've pressured Toei to let them skip ''Goseiger'' or at the very least, adapt the 2 Sentai out of order and have ''Gokaiger'' adapted first.

** Despite ''Megaforce'' clearly trying to harken back to the ''Mighty Morphin'' days, and the first series adapted, ''Goseiger'', is angel themed...the series does not take place in Angel Grove. Admittedly, it would've had to have been an inside joke, since ''Goseiger'''s angel motif would remain the Elephant in the Room[[note]]since religious references are usually edited out of kid's programs when they are broadcast in the US - for example, in ''Anime/Yugioh'', pentagrams are usually replaced or edited out entirely[[/note]], but considering that in ''Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive'', at least had one episode where the team visited Angel Grove, there's no reason why ''Megaforce'' couldn't do the same.

** Female example: "United We Stand" has a ''lot'' of hugging between Emma and Gia. And while the MonsterOfTheWeek in that episode turned Emma and Gia against each other with the intent of creating a fight to the death between the two girls, the actual result was them bickering LikeAnOldMarriedCouple. Even in "Mega Mission", there's bit of this: Gia has Emma's drink order memorized and they engage in overly long staring into each other's eyes without speaking in a manner that is quite similar to ''Series/RizzoliAndIsles''.

** A blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment comes when you see the Wild Lion Zord knocking the rangers off. Stop at the right time, and you'll notice they're not even in their ''Wild Force'' outfits, but rather the ''[[KousokuSentaiTurboranger Turboranger]]'' ones.

** When Orion first appeared, his long hair caused him to be called a space-hippy. There are also suggestions that the trauma of losing everything combined with spending several months alone with only thoughts of revenge on his mind, that Orion has at least a few screws loose if not outright insane.[[note]](It doesn't help that Gai Ikari, Orion's Gokaiger counterpart, is a Manic Fanboy with a penchant for being lively and flamboyant and Orion is basically Batman [[RecycledInSpace IN SPACE]] so whenever Gokaiger's footage is used, Orion comes out as being a revenge-obsessed, raving madman.)[[/note]]

** Gosei conveniently has a new set of powers and zords for the rangers that are not only stronger than the ones they've been using but can also utilize the powers of every other ranger in history. One wonders how he got them, why he never made this info privy before, or how having multiple copies of the same powers doesn't cause a glitch in the Morphing Grid when it's happened before ala PowerRangersDinoThunder.

** Troy's inexplicable "Super Saiyan" punch to restore [[spoiler: Robo Knight]] back to the side of good. No prior explanation is given about how he can do this, nor after he performs the punch. Comes from copying the event in ''Goseiger'', where there ''was'' an explanation and it was a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for Troy's counterpart.[[note]](In this case, said character was an ''angel'', and he was using his angelic abilities to drive out the brainwashing from his comrade.

* TheyChangedItSoItSucks: Crosses with ItsTheSameSoItSucks for this one, as it's some weird combination of the two, but when it comes to ''Super'', the fact that the writers took stuff away from ''Gokaiger'' without replacing those things with anything really stands out, as the show feels wholly incomplete as is.
** For instance, ''Gokaiger's'' biggest draws are ''always'' going to be the interesting characters and their dynamics, the tributes to the past seasons, the fact that the overall plot didn't get lost in the shuffle of the day-to-day plots (which would've been easy to even accidentally do), and Basco because the other villains weren't nearly as well-written, or [[LoveToHate entertaining]], as he was the only halfway competent villain the series had. ''Super Megaforce'' only kept in the tributes, such as they were, and a gimped version of the overall plot (Gokaiger was more about character development and depth than a simple alien invasion story), but, as said, didn't really do anything to replace, or do a variation, of the other stuff or what was still there, leading to a good portion of the criticisms lobbed at it.
** Not only that, but the fact that, to make sense of a lot of what happens in it, you'd have to look up the corresponding ''Gokaiger'' episodes to see what happened there really doesn't help the "''Power Rangers'' has to stand on its own" argument. The fact that Linkara pointed out that he felt that several episodes felt like rushed two-parters (which they were, since they were the corresponding ''Gokaiger'' episodes, translated into English with very little changed, but with an episode's worth of material cut out) really speaks to the fact that the season overall didn't actually feel like it was trying to do anything new with its version of ''Gokaiger's'' events and just wanted to skirt by just doing the absolute minimum needed to make a season of the show [[MoneyDearBoy to make a quick buck on the merchandising]]. Doesn't help that the main characters were the best part of ''Gokaiger'', but the ones for ''Megaforce'' were never really written to be given genuine chances to shine, or actual characterizations outside of their base personality traits and body language, and the villains were nothing more than carbon copies of their ''Gokaiger'' counterparts, only with a layer stripped away even there (Look up Barizorg, Argus' ''Sentai'' counterpart, for that one). Even the most hardened ''Gokaiger'' fan will say that the main villains were the worst part of the season and Basco saved it from being overly repetitive with the villains.

** Orion is shown to be able to combine sixth ranger keys - first we see him combine the keys for the Gold and Silver Rangers from RPM, and later we see him combine all the keys...yet we never see him combine the 2 ranger keys of Tommy's 2 ''Mighty Morphin'' keys. To be fair, this is somewhat of a carryover from ''Gokaiger'', since they never try and create an Akared Key in that series, but at least they have an excuse there, since no two teams share rangers. While in theory, they could have tried to combine, oh say, the keys for [[Series/TensouSentaiGoseiger GoseiBlue and GoseiGreen]], in the case of that series, the latter's key didn't appear in ''Gokaiger''.

While in theory, they could have tried to combine, oh say, the keys for [[Series/TensouSentaiGoseiger GoseiBlue and GoseiGreen]], in the case of that series, the latter's key didn't appear in ''Gokaiger''. While it's understandable why he doesn't combine all of Tommy's keys (since Orion is restricted to SixthRanger keys for no apparent reason, and aside from his 2 ''Mighty Morphin'' powers, Tommy had the red ''Zeo'' and ''Turbo'' powers as well as the black ''Dino Thunder'' powers, there is no given explanation for why he doesn't combine Tommy's two ''Mighty Morphin'' keys).
*** Speaking of ranger keys, aside from the team never transforming into ''In Space'', ''Lightspeed Rescue'', ''Time Force'', or ''Operation Overdrive'', the team never transforms into any other all-motif themed rangers outside of the all-red change in episode 1 or the changes from the Legendary Battle against Emperor Mavro[[note]]although the change into the teams of the last recovered 5 greater powers is used, it was modified so that the Red ''Mighty Morphin'' ranger appears instead of [[Series/TaiyouSentaiSunVulcan VulEagle]][[/note]]. While it's understandable why some of the all-motif changes were cut[[note]]the all-pink change, for example, was from ''Gokaiger vs Gavan'', which was not adapted[[/note]], there are some that one can't help but wonder why they weren't included[[note]]for example, there are all-yellow and all-green changes that weren't used; while they would've required editing - the former had Gosei Yellow, and the latter had Green Flash, Denzi Green, and Midorenger - they could have easily edited those changes to include Power Rangers[[/note]]. Not helping is the decision to limit Orion to SixthRanger keys for no explained reason[[note]]one possible reason is that he appears so late, meaning that there was not enough time to use all the footage that was usable[[/note]], meaning that changes such as an all-SixthRanger or all-silver[[note]]although this change wouldn't have included the Titanium Ranger, it should be noted that the original change didn't have [[Series/TokusouSentaiDekaranger Dekabright]], despite her being a silver ranger[[/note]] were not usable[[note]]at the time that ''Gokaiger'' aired, all silver rangers in both Sentai and Power Rangers were sixth rangers; it would not be until ''Series/UchuuSentaiKyuranger'' that a silver ranger would be a part of the core team[[/note]].

** Troy has so far gone down as one of the worst Red Rangers of all time due to him having absolutely no personality. (Ironically, his similarly-disliked Goseiger counterpart Alata was hated for having ''too much'' personality. Marvelous came off as not having much of a personality most of the time too, but he was written to be generally reserved in his emotions, plus had the badass credentials to make up for it and an actor who did more than just stood there stoically when the scene wasn't focused on him, while Troy is the result of a first time nonunion actor combined with poor scripts and, most likely, mediocre direction.) This wasn't helped when, in "Spirit of the Tiger," he became a massive jackass out of nowhere for insisting that "a ranger must never let go of his weapons. (That wasn't even in the ''Gokaiger'' episode either. Marvelous was more of the type of leader to, more often than not, let his teammates figure their problems out on their own, only helping when needed. Maybe it's a result of the writers injecting some personality into him, as some of the actors wanted, but not understanding what kind of personality was required and where.) The other four Rangers are exempt for at least having more personality and development than Troy (especially Emma and Noah), and Robo Knight and Orion seem to be avoiding it altogether.

* Padding: ''Super'' has an odd mix of both this and rushing through things. While episodes will combine multiple episodes into one from ''Gokaiger'' with very little changed ['Super Megaforce', 'Samurai Surprise', 'All Hail Prince Vekar', 'Emperor Mavro', 'The Legendary Battle' (the episode 20 version, not the DVD that fused the last 2 episodes together)] with often rushed pacing as a result of deleting things from the original ''Gokaiger'' scripts, there are a few episodes that either have this in spots, or are entirely this ('Spirit of the Tiger' has several minutes at the beginning dedicated to nothing but teaching the kid audience facts they wouldn't most likely know about animals at the zoo the rangers visit and 'United as One' keeps in the cosplay quick changes from the ''Gokaiger'' episode it adapted for no real reason, while 'The Perfect Storm' and 'Love is in the Air' are both wholly superfluous to the season overall). It, honestly, leads to the question of what exactly the writers were thinking when it came to adapting ''Gokaiger'', since they only had 20 episodes to do so, but still had two worthless filler episodes, and one later episode was dedicated to wrapping up the few dangling plot threads from ''Megaforce'' left over, with Vrak coming back after not being in the show for 15 episodes that adapted the remaining ''Goseiger'' footage left over.
