** 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.

** 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 [[MarySue Em]][[CreatorsPet ma]] 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.

* MarySue:
** Many claim Gia of being one. Seen as a possible expy of Trini, many fans point out that while Trini was balanced and a jack-of-all-trades (a JackOfAllStats, really), Gia seems to be the best at everything. She finished a test before Noah, implying she's smarter than him, and it's implied she's also stronger than Jake and Troy. Jake's constant near-worship of her is not helping matters. Could be given a rebuttal when Jake, her "secret" crush, tells Noah that he is "smarter than all of (them) combined." So while Gia is smart, she may not actually be smarter than Noah.
** Emma could count moreso. She's always built up by the writers as this perfect, special girl who can do no wrong. As the writers' mouthpiece, she is ''always'' right even if she needs to learn an Aesop or two (if Blue Saber Saga is any indication).
** The team could be seen as a group of this trope. Gosei keeps praising the rangers for feats not all that amazing, even when he has to bail them out, and talks about how they overcome such great ordeals. We even have past rangers like Jayden proclaim that they really are worthy of all the power they have with the keys.

* Also, the news that the Goseiger suits are staying through both seasons outside of Gokai Silver since most fans find the Gokaiger suits among the best in the series and the Goseiger suits... not so much. Though after Super Megaforce Episode 3 establishing that [[spoiler: the Rangers can skip the Megaforce suits and jump straight to Super Mega]], continued use of the Goseiger suits may unify the fanbase to the negative.
* Of all things, the presumed [[ByThePowerOfGreyskull morphing call]] (moreso the "Go Go Megaforce!" part rather than the "It's Morphin' Time!" part) is also a point of disagreement - some fans have no problem with it, while others dislike it, seeing as the preceding season, ''Series/PowerRangersSamurai'', ''just'' used that format with "Go Go Samurai!". While it made sense to reuse ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'''s call in ''Series/PowerRangersZeo'' (due to the latter season being with direct continuity with the former), some perceive the re-usage of "Go Go (team name)" in ''Megaforce'' to be improper since ''Megaforce'' and ''Samurai'' are unlikely to be ''directly'' connected outside of a potential CrossOver and being a part of the ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' franchise. Some also feel that reusing "Go Go (team name)" seems like a lazy effort compared to past morphing calls.[[note]](''Megaforce'' at least puts more of an effort than ''Series/PowerRangersLightspeedRescue'', which generally used a morphing call comprised of ''solely'' "Lightspeed Rescue", the team name for that season. The [[SixthRanger Titanium Ranger]], on the other hand, used a debatedly generic call of "Titanium Power!", which just incorporates his designation and the word "power".)[[/note]] The "It's Morphin' Time" phrase has fared ''much'' better in terms of reception, considering the MilestoneCelebration and the numerous references to ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' already.

* It was revealed that the Gokaiger suits are in Super Megaforce as a SuperMode of sorts. Essentially the rangers transform into these suits in order to then transform into past rangers. Some people think this is great, others wanted the Gokaigers to be their own team, some of those wanted that team being the powerless Megaforce team.
* During the ''Super Megaforce'' filming, reports started coming in for many former Rangers ''not'' appearing, [[http://www.tokunation.com/showthread.php?t=44462 for various reasons]]. A Q&A session with Austin St. John (Jason of ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'') revealed he was invited for the finale, but declined saying that what he was being offered "wasn't worth the price of a plane ticket". However, he clarified that it was less because of ego and more out of self-respect. While some fans are absolutely furious--some of the complaints bordering on ridiculous and [[{{Misblamed}} Misblame.]]--others seem to give Saban Brands the benefit of the doubt and are reserving judgement on the finished product and even pointing out how some fans are blowing things out of proportion.
* The news that Super Megaforce won't be using the Pirate-motif has become a sore point for many fans who were looking forward to a unique set of rangers and the narrative potential therein. On the other hand, some people don't mind this because they believe it will force Jonathan Tzachor to come up with original storylines, which even ''Megaforce'' itself has barely been doing.
* ''End Game'', the final episode of the first half of ''Megaforce'' is either a great ending for the first half with a great cliffhanger, or an average episode that just marks the end of a so far average season.
* The leaked documents which contain summaries of the first 15 episodes of ''Super Megaforce'' have split the fanbase- in particular, many are translations of ''Gokaiger'' episodes. In particular, while more Disney seasons are getting episodes (''Wild Force'' and ''RPM'' are confirmed), Casey's episode has him as a zookeeper - not working at Pai Zhua, or in RJ's pizza place, a ''zookeeper''. Which isn't even what Jan was doing in the corresponding Gokaiger episode (he was actually training some students).
* Episode 2 of Super Megaforce reveals that they can now morph into the Dairanger suits, with the only explanation being that they're from an alien planet. Many fans call this lazy, some are okay with it, and a few are glad that the Dairanger suits are being used. Three episodes later we're treated to the [[ChoushinseiFlashman PinkFlash]] and [[HikariSentaiMaskman YellowMask]] outfits, without so much as a HandWave, probably hoping viewers would just remember the "never seen on this planet" spiel.
* As the series has gone on, fans of the Saban Era are irked at how little suits from ''MMPR - Time Force'' are used over the Disney Suits (''SPD'' was used once an episode for the first three, which didn't help). A lot of this can be blamed on Saban's over-reliance on the Gokaiger footage (which used 2000-era Rangers a lot early on) but the under-use of original footage really stands out.
* After Episode 10, many fans are upset that Dairanger has appeared more often than fan favorites like Time Force, In Space and even MMPR. Don't even get them started on the complete lack of Lightspeed Rescue.
* Opinion on ''Megaforce'' is split. Either it's an alright season though nothing special, it's bad but not as bad as Samurai, or it somehow manages to be worse than Samurai.
* An extended version of the Finale with 15 minutes of additional footage for "Legendary Battle" was released... but only being broadcast on Nicktoons, not Nickelodeon proper, and Nick.com the next day. While some fans feel this is better than nothing and general consensus seems to be that it's an improvement, others are ticked off it wasn't broadcast on the more easily accessible Nickelodeon channel.

* 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!

*** 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.
** In "Samurai Surprise", Troy and Noah were using the Double disks given by [[Series/PowerRangersSamurai Jayden]] earlier on. Noah duplicates his sword (that's fine and all) while Troy is using it to ''power up his Fire Smasher''. Samurai and Shinkenger fans would recall that the double disk is only used to '''duplicate''' a weapon, not simply amplifying its powers (although, it could be duplicating the Smasher's power).
** In "The Perfect Storm" the rangers do a Zeo change with a team attack with the Ohranger attack name (translated as "ZEO dynamite") instead of the one used in Zeo (it was called Zeo Spinning Power Kick) the only difference being that the gold ranger never was in the combined attack in either series.
** In "Spirit of the Tiger", Jake refers to RJ's powers as Purple Wolf. In Jungle Fury, it was always called ''Jungle Fury Wolf Ranger'', without reference to the color.
** Troy refers to the charged attack that the rangers use as the Jungle Fury Rangers as the Jungle Fury Claw Booster. The Claw Boosters were actually the devices the main Jungle Fury Rangers used to enter Jungle Master Mode. He should've instead referred to it as the Battle Claw.
** In "United as One" Super Dino Mode is called Dino Rampage. Rampage is a translation of Abare, as in it's Japanese name Abare Mode.
** The Tyranno Staff appears to be "sentient" in this episode, unlike in Dino Thunder where the head of the staff is inanimated, as shown the staff's head biting Desloar.
** EVERYTHING about ''In the Driver's Seat'', especially with how hard they wanted to convince the audience that Go-Onger's Machine World was really Corinth.
** In the final battle with Mavro, Emma as the Pink Mystic Ranger Legend Mode yells out "Magi Bolt!" An attack from Magiranger, but not from Mystic Force.
** In that same scene, the Ranges refer to their last Ranger change as "Legendary Battlizer Mode". Of the six forms chosen, only Silver's Super Megaforce Gold mode could reasonably be considered as a Battlizer (though it was never referred to as such before). Most of the other forms are [[SuperMode Super Modes]] from teams that ''had'' their own specific Battlizers already, including the SPD Battlizer, Mystic Force's Red Dragon Fire Ranger and arguably Samurai's Shogun Mode.

** Similarly, the recurring footage from ''Gokaiger''[='s=] Legend War includes heroes from ''Super Sentai'' that have never been adapted for ''Power Rangers''. Most are way in the background where they're not as noticeable or have been edited to make them less conspicuous, but "Stranger Ranger" clearly shows [[Series/GoseiSentaiDairanger Ryu Ranger]] fighting behind the Red [[Series/PowerRangersJungleFury Jungle Fury Ranger]]. [[spoiler:Officially subverted in "Earth Fights Back" when the Dairanger suits debuted as "powers never seen before on Earth."]]
** In episode 3, after the rangers defeat the MonsterOfTheWeek with the Megaforce Blaster, they disassemble the blaster and then run to a completely different area where they had quarantined the infected civilians. After that, when Vrak summons the zombats to [[MakeMyMonsterGrow make the monster grow]], the rangers are suddenly right back in front of the monster's corpse, holding the assembled Megaforce Blaster.
** The second battle against Dragonflay (played out at the same time as the Red Ranger fights Creepox for the first time) in Episode 4 still has plenty of Japanese text on signs and on the road. Okay, that would've been pretty taxing to edit out without anyone noticing, but you can't help but notice how glaring it is that an American city has Japanese traffic signage.

*** Emma is a understated character while her Goseiger counterpart Eri is more hyperactive. There's times when Goseiger footage is used and the Pink Ranger is gesturing animatedly like Eri but with Emma's understated performance, causing this. Should be less apparent when Gokaiger footage is used and Emma is being played by Ahim, also more understated than Eri.

*** Jake's Gokaiger counterpart is Don, the team's PluckyComicRelief ButtMonkey; the first episode handles this simply by passing the Green Ranger's uneasy motions as Jake's enthusiasm over his new powers. In later episodes, it becomes even more pronounced with the Green Ranger inexplicably acting like Don at times to the point of being incompetent in direct combat, even though Jake has never been depicted as ''that'' goofy of a character.
*** Noah's Gokaiger counterpart is Joe, the team's master swordsman. While Don would fit better for Noah as does Joe to Jake, the reasoning for Noah at being a master swordsman is to improve himself and be better at helping the team out. However, this is problematic on another layer due to Noah's Goseiger counterpart, Hyde, being a bow-wielder, resulting in Noah going from one extreme in combat to the other without any explanation. This is a little funny due to the fact that Joe...well, let's just say that he won't be winning any marksmanship competitions.

** Episode 2 of Super Megaforce just had Japan as the place where the rocket was launched when clearly the show takes place in the United States, or New Zealand in terms of where it was shot. This was because of the unedited transition between the local shots and the pool of stock footage that was found in Gokaiger. (Though this is far from the first time this has happened in the franchise's history)
** 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.

** In ''The Perfect Storm'', the Legendary Megazord throws the Q-Rex into space to destroy an incoming asteroid. We then get a shot of Earth, and it's ''blatantly obvious that the Q-Rex was leaving Japan.''
** Another one with ''Turboranger'' occurs in "Love is In the Air", based on the first Jealoushito episode - you can make out a ''black'' Ranger key being used as the Rangers morph into ''PowerRangersTurbo'', which ''didn't'' have a black Ranger.

** In "Vrak is Back", Vrak captured Orion and harnessed "the Sixth Ranger power", corrupting it for his own purposes. This would have been the ''perfect'' time to add Gokaiger footage where a villain brought every one of the Sixth Ranger keys to life and forced them to fight the core five ''en masse''. And yes, the fighting included Robo Knight, whom Vrak corrupted in the episode. Not only would this have been one of the most epic fights in Power Rangers history, but they seemed to have done all the work in setting it up, even having Vrak meet them in a quarry that looked just like the one in the Gokaiger footage!

** The Legendary Battle itself was hyped for two years...and it lasted not even 5 minutes and was against foot soldiers that weren't destroyed yet. Even worse was that the majority of the battle was already seen in the ''first episode'' of the ''Megaforce'' half. The extended version is at least somewhat better, as while not a lot is added to the fight, the lead in is enhanced a bit to add to the weight of it with an extended shot of the old Rangers preping to don their helmets for battle and Karone a OneSceneWonder line, as well as making the army Mavro's backup plan rather than just being random, but it's still far less awesome than it should have been.
** Wow, they can turn into '''all''' the past Rangers? Too bad we never do see full team morphs for In Space, Lightspeed Rescue, Time Force, and Operation Overdrive. But, we do get to see non-PR adapted Sentai teams multiple times, for no apparent reason.
** Man, these Super Mega suits sure look "pirate-y". Any chance this would be addressed? No? We're just going to completely ignore the obvious pirate theme that even 5 year old kids can recognize? Fine.

* The Toxic Mutants could have been easily linked back to the Orgs of ''Series/PowerRangersWildForce'' (especially since they were basically created the same way), in particular it could have resolved the long unknown fates of Toxica and Jindrax, who walked into the sunset at the end of ''Wild Force'' and [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse had never been seen or heard from again]].

*** Adding onto that point, Troy has a relaxed-yet-confident stance and overall body language which really doesn't jell well with Alata, who is usually timid and has his arms clenched together like an angry child. It gets better with Marvelous's body language, though not all that well as Troy's a bit more stiff and Marvelous is always ready to battle.
*** Likewise, Jake's ''Gokaiger'' counterpart is Don, the team's PluckyComicRelief ButtMonkey; the first episode handles this simply by passing the Green Ranger's uneasy motions as Jake's enthusiasm over his new powers. In later episodes, it becomes even more pronounced with the Green Ranger inexplicably acting like Don at times, even though Jake has never been depicted as ''that'' goofy of a character.

** You can tell whenever it's switched from american to japanese footage because of the quality of video. The New Zealand cameras have a richer texture to it. Not only that but a lot of the Sentai footage is shot in the morning which makes it very noticeable if the American footage is in the afternoon.
** In the first episode when the rangers have their debut fight it switched from an intact town plaza to a wrecked site with cracked concrete and crushed buildings. It almost makes you wanna say, "[[Series/VRTroopers We Are V.R]].

** The reason for why Goseiger and Gokaiger were adapted in the same season is because Saban was explicitly told not to skip Goseiger due to ExecutiveMeddling. Cut to a couple of years later and revel in the irony of Go-Busters being skipped over for Kyoryuger and possibly it happening again for Tokkyuger in favor of Ninninger.

* MagnificentBastard: Vrak promotes himself to this trope when he [[spoiler:returns in Super Mega Force]] by ''defying'' SoLastSeason, playing the Rangers like pawns, and doing half his sabotages of the Rangers ''before they even realize he's back''. He even makes the Rangers do his dirty work by placing the last two drills in two of his monsters.

* LesYay: "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''.
