** Jake's crush on Gia can be this for those who watched ''Goseiger'', wherein Agri and Moune were ''siblings''.[[note]]This isn't the first time this has happened - [[Series/PowerRangersLightspeedRescue Carter and Dana's]] sentai counterparts were related as well, although [[Series/KyukyuSentaiGoGoV in that case]], the entire team was a family; if Gia had been the Pink Ranger, this would have been averted[[/note]].

** One of the "New Powers" was ''Series/DengekiSentaiChangeman'', who technically become the first Power Rangers team without a Yellow Ranger. [[Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge Something it shares with the next official Power Rangers series]].

** 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 do variations on 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 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 and Emma in "United as One", in which they had a (fake) wedding. While one could say that it was just a ShotForShotRemake of the sentai episode, the "The Wrath" episode has Emma ''kiss'' Orion (albeit on the cheek) before he left for home.

** This seems to be the general opinion of fans as the first half of ''Megaforce'' draws to a close- while everything's a step up from ''Samurai'', it's still not up to the standards of previous seasons outside of some impressive visual effects (The acting and plotlines are frequently mentioned victims of this). Alongside that, ''Megaforce'' has had various pacing issues- the first half spends too much time bringing in new toys, the second half refuses to move plot along except where it must, and Malkor made very few appearances during the season, not to mention the ''insane'' hiatus that insued throughout mid-2013 all caused by Nickelodeon imposing the 20-episode per year rule.

* In general, there seems to be a problem in keeping the continuity of ''Power Rangers'' and ''Super Sentai'' straight in the fine details, with problems in names, technical details and so forth not quite matching up with the way they were presented in previous ''Power Rangers'' series. This is especially a shame since this is supposed to be the anniversary season! It's especially jarring and disappointing when you take the facts that Saban had put the previous seasons on Netflix, was releasing DVDs through Shout! Factory and Lionsgate, they most likely had some of the previous writers of the past seasons on the staff, if not some of the proudction crew, Linkara had many of his History of Power Rangers videos out at the point the show went into production, Tzachor was not only a member of the production staff of not only the initial Saban era, but also the previous season, ''Samurai'', and the fact ''that there's an entire wiki on the internet dedicated to keeping track of little details that they could've looked up in case they didn't know what the details were that's just a Google search away'' into account.

** Since Saban was forced to adapt Goseiger and Gokaiger, you'd think they'd at least adapt the Goseiger-Shinkenger Crossover and have the Super Megaforce powers debut during that[[note]]Samurai ended in a way that would allow them to use the footage of the Gokaiger EarlyBirdCameo without causing a ContinuitySnarl, and all the ranger keys the Gokaigers used there are from series that have been adapted into Power Rangers[[/note]], but nope!

** Given that ''Samurai'' was the previous series and they were adapting ''Goseiger'' first, you'd think they'd adapt the Goseiger-Shinkenger crossover, especially since it wouldn't have caused a continuity snarl with ''Samurai'''s ending (either as the tribute episode to ''Samurai'' or as a crossover between ''Samurai'' and ''Megaforce''), but nope.

* VindicatedByHistory: Inverted for the second half - much like ''Samurai'' before it, many previously disliked seasons [[note]]Ironically enough, this time the aforementioned ''Samurai'' was also among those seasons vindicated[[/note]] were vindicated as a result of ''Super Megaforce'' bombing so hard. However, like Samurai, odds are that the next time a bad ''Power Rangers'' show comes along, this trope will likely be played straight, definitely for the first half, and possibly for the second half.

Though for ''Super'' to be vindicated, that future season is going to have to be ''pretty'' bad to outdo ''Super's'' genuine amount of awful to wash the bad taste of it out of people's mouthes.
