* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Creator/JohnnyYongBosch has said that he personally played Adam in "Once A Ranger" as someone who had grown into a lone warrior & travelled the world using his Ranger powers to help people, and that his remark about going back to his dojo in Angel Grove at the end of "Once a Ranger" was a lie.

* ContestedSequel: ''Operation Overdrive'' has a massive negative reputation among the fans, even among the Disney Era seasons. The shift in the overarcing plot was a large departure from traditional Power Rangers fare (which naturally caused some negative feelings [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks due to it being different]]), the acting was a far cry from the quality set by [[Series/PowerRangersSPD SPD]] and [[Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder Dino Thunder]] (though it wasn't as bad as some past and future seasons), the late-season {{Jerkass}} qualities by Mack due to TheReveal were rather inconsistent and unfounded, and the explosion count became '''insane''', topping in at over 250 in the entire show. Thanks to all of this, this commonly is on the top of many "Worst Season" lists.

** It seems that the Magi Yellow/Mystic Yellow outfits leads to wearing gold- Chip's actor, Nick Sampson voices Sentinel Knight in this season, while in ''Go-Busters'' Magi Yellow's actor is the Gold Ranger.
** This was a Disney-owned superhero franchise with an episode featuring [[Myth/NorseMythology Thor and Loki]], and since then Disney's given up ''Power Rangers'' for a different superhero franchise featuring [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Thor and Loki]].

* GodModeSue: Mack with his battlizer. This is always an issue with the red rangers with these depending on how much they're used, but even [[spoiler: Flurious with the Corona Aurora and its jewels]] which the rangers spent the whole series trying to gather, could even barely slow him down.
** A bigger example would be Mack with the sword Excelsior. He jumps in the air and [[spoiler:slices the giant monster the veteran rangers were struggling to defeat in half]]... unmorphed. It beats Serpenterra's defeat in ''Forever Red'' in how absurd it is.

* ParvumOpus: This rivals ''Series/PowerRangersTurbo'' as the franchise's lowest point.

* ParvumOpus: Arguably the worst season of the show. Depends on whether you hate it more than the first 2 Neo-Saban seasons though.

* HeReallyCanAct: While Overdrive is regarded by many as a sub-par season, even detractors said that James Maclurcan was ''fantastic'' when it was revealed that Mack was [[spoiler:a robot]]. His shock, sadness and anger came off as genuine.

** There's a reason some people have described the show as "a bunch of cool toys with a bad plot."

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: The Overdrive Rangers are meant to come off as sympathetic in "Once A Ranger" when they lose their powers and feel useless enough that they quit. However: 1) They still have their civilian powers, 2) Their mission was not to be just Power Rangers, but to find the jewels, which they could still do while the veteran rangers dealt with the monsters, 3) All of them, save for Tyzonn, were gloating about how awesome it is to be Power Rangers before being reminded it's about saving lives, 4) They only return because they found returning to their old lives boring rather than wanting to actually do something heroi, and 5) Mack, ''unmorphed'', uses Excelsior to [[spoiler:''slash through a giant monster in half'']]. While Excelsior's power is hyped up this episode, the fact remains that Mack had to jump several hundred feet in the air, and perform a slash powerful enough to [[spoiler:one shot the monster]]. With civilian powers this strong, ''why complain about not having Ranger powers''.
