** Given the fact that Gosei mentioned Zordon was his mentor earlier, you'd expect them to try and expand upon this and give some more backstory on Zordon - one particularly obvious example comes in the form of the Squadron Rangers, the first set of powers never before seen on Earth[[note]]they are actually the ''Dairanger'' outfits - while said series was partially adapted into the second season of ''Mighty Morphin'', only the White Ranger outfit and the Megazords were used; the core 5 outfits have not appeared before in any form[[/note]]; since we know that Zordon used to be a warrior himself, an extremely easy explanation for them would have been for Gosei to have said that they were the team of Power Rangers that Zordon originally served in, and the White Ranger was either a close friend/love interest of Zordon's who perished in combat (and he wanted to honor their memory), OR it was the powers Zordon himself used (and was most familiar with, thus making it the easiest to recreate) - not only expanding upon Gosei's connection to Zordon, but also giving an in-universe explanation as to why the suit looks so different from the original ''Mighty Morphin'' suits. But no, [[Main/SarcasmMode Gosei's "simple explanation for that" is just fine]].


Added DiffLines:

** The handwaving of why Jake's Ranger Key is a different color from his Megaforce color (the latter was black, while the former is Green) comes off as this if you remember the fact that ''Goseiger'' (the series that the first half of ''Megaforce'' was adapted from) DID have a Green Ranger - Gosei Green, who [[spoiler: died before the start of the series and only appears in flashbacks]]. A much better explanation would have been to say that before Gosei recruited the 5, there was a Green Megaforce Ranger who was originally going to receive the key Jake ended up receiving, but he was defeated by a much more powerful foe and perished, and Gosei decided to honor his memory by not repainting the key so that he could serve alongside them in spirit. This also could have been a much better way to introduce the SixthRanger instead of Orion; reveal that the Green Megaforce Ranger did survive the battle, but his Morpher was destroyed, and have Gosei give him the Legendary Silver Morpher. But instead, no explanation is given, and instead we get an extraterrestrial to be the Silver Ranger as an homage to [[Series/PowerRangersInSpace two]] [[Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive series]] that the Megaforce Rangers ironically never do full morphs into.

** In "A Lion's Alliance", Gosei sends the Rangers to the Animarium, the home of the [[Series/PowerRangersWildForce Wild Force Rangers]]. Not only does he get the name wrong, calling it Animaria[[note]]Though this TECHNICALLY isn't incorrect, due to the Animarium having been stated as being part of the greater kingdom of Animaria[[/note]], he doesn't even pronounce it correctly.
*** Considering Tzachor produced that season, you'd think he would care enough to correct the writers for that episode. Hell, Jill Donnellan could've written it, since she worked on ''Wild Force'' as well.

* SpecialEffectsFailure: In ''Gokaiger'' episode 2, the all-Red morph included Gosei Red (AKA Megaforce Red); when this scene occurs in ''Super Megaforce'' episode 1, Saban used mediocre green screening to swap in Operation Overdrive's Red Ranger.

* TheProducerThinksOfEverything: When the Legendary Rangers show up for the final battle, the [[Series/PowerRangersZeo Zeo Rangers]] are missing Zeo Ranger V and the [[Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder Dino Thunder Rangers]] are short a Black Ranger. This is because Tommy is fighting as the [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Green Ranger]] for the time being. However, the full team of [[Series/PowerRangersTurbo Turbo Rangers]] also appear, only for Tommy and TJ to appear unmasked as the Green Ranger and [[Series/PowerRangersInSpace Blue Space Ranger]], meaning there's no one to be the Red Turbo Ranger. Cassie is also in her Space Ranger suit, and Zeo Ranger I appears with the Zeo Rangers. So other than Justin, who's wearing the Turbo suits?

** The loss of Datas leads to a problem with Ultra Gosei Great Megazord. Eagle-eyed viewers will notice that there's a brand new Mechazord head that's just there with no explanation as to where it came from; not to mention the Zord mountings on the shoulders and the odd design on the robot's back. The card that summons it is labelled HYPER Gosei Great, due to [[TheyJustDidntCare total failure to edit the footage]].

* TheyJustDidntCare:
** The ThemeSongPowerup that kicks in when the team [[spoiler: destroys Malkor]] sounds awesome... until you realize it's the ''Samurai'' theme.
** Most fans on Rangerboard thought this was the source of ''Megaforce's'' current mediocre quality. The limited amount of episodes allocated for the series doesn't help either.
** Commercials for the Super Megaforce toys use stock footage from the series. However, people noticed that one set of commercials used TV-Nihon's subs for ''Gokaiger'' for one scene!
** During the ClipShow viewing, Noah was amazed at the previous Power Rangers. Sad thing is, '''''ALL''''' of those clips are ''Gokaiger'' footage. And eagle-eyed viewers can find the Boukenger Gokai Change event with Gokai Silver!
** They aren't even bothering to edit out most Sentai suits anymore.
** According to Alison [=MacInnis=], the Legend War was last-minute and rushed, showing that even the big event they spent two years hyping was full of "not caring". One specific scene in the Legend War which highlights the whole "we don't give a crap" attitude present (and no, it's not [[spoiler:Robo Knight's UnexplainedRecovery]]): if one listens closely while the Ninja Storm Rangers and Alien Rangers (minus Shane and Aurico) take down a bunch of X-Borgs, they'll hear ''Tommy's'' very distinct {{Kiai}}, despite him not being a member of either of those teams.
--> [[WebVideo/HistoryOfPowerRangers Linkara]]: You were so lazy, you didn't know that wasn't Tommy! '''GO TO HELL!!!'''
** Ciara Hanna and Cameron Jebo revealed in their No Pink Spandex interview that this was a pervading thought from the producers. Whenever an actor or writer brought up something they felt didn't make sense, they would be told "Who cares? The audience is five years old"

* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Troy's subplot with Robo Knight and his [[HeReallyCanAct improved acting]] in ''Vrak is Back part 2'' may be a glimmer of hope for Troy as a character.



** 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.) This wasn't helped when, in "Spirit of the Tiger," he became a massive jackass out of nowhere. 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. He got better (see RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap above).

*** Some fans interpret her as an ecoterrorist a la Ra's Al Ghul after seeing a scene of her imagining how the world was before human development, implying she wants that world back.

** Emma being a PsychoLesbian who kills anyone who even ''looks'' at Gia the wrong way. This wasn't helped by a short film Christina Masterson (Emma's actress) took part in where she acts as bait to lure people into a basement for a serial killer.

** In "Blue Saber Saga", it looks like Emma will learn that sometimes, teammates have to fight on their own. Sounds a bit dark for this season, but cool. Nope, the MonsterOfTheWeek pulls a fast one on Noah, forcing the others to bail him out. So the episode's lesson gets screwed up, just so [[[[CreatorsPet Emma]] would be in the right. Again, the Sentai footage is to blame, but it made more sense, as the Aesop for that episode was to let friends help you when you need them.

** That doesn't fix everything. The Magna Defender is present in the final battle, despite the fact the original one is dead, and Mike's morpher was destroyed before "Lost Galaxy" ended.
