* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Tyzonn's backstory was pretty tragic with losing his friends in a cave-in and vowing to avenge them by defeating the Fear Cats. However, [[spoiler:he learns his girlfriend sruvived the cave-in and decides to go searching for her. This is resolved... by Norg bringing her to Tyzonn at the mansion after the rangers defeated Flurious]]. So Tyzonn didn't even get a chance to even officially start his new quest.

* {{Irony}}: While ''Overdrive'' is considered to be one of the weakest seasons by many fans, the Sentai it was based on, ''Series/GoGoSentaiBoukenger'', is actually considered to be one of the ''best,'' even by people who don't normally watch Sentai.

* CostumePorn: The Boukenger/Overdrive suits are very popular with the fandom, despite the negative reputation surrounding the season itself. Some people even consider the suits to be the only good thing about the season, even though since they, like virtually all costumes, came from its source material, one could argue that the suits don't even count as part of the season.
** There's a reason some people have described the show as "a bunch of cool toys with a bad plot."



* SoUnfunnyItsFunny: Pretty much everything Dax says.

* BaseBreaker: Either the theme song eventually grows on you or it's among the worst in the entire franchise. There seems to be absolutely no middle ground.



* BrokenBase: As this was the last "bad" season (As seen by most of the fans) before [[Series/PowerRangersSamurai Samurai]], fans are divided as to which is worse (''Turbo'' and ''Wild Force'' being largely VindicatedByHistory thanks to the two newer seasons) between the two.

* TheyJustDidntCare: A common belief held during the season's second half, in particular with Thrax's confusing origins, cars showing up in a quarry that weren't there before, Rose's reasons for being a genius, etc.

* {{Earworm}}: The theme song in a SoBadItsGood kinda way. Some fans have admitted it can actually be fairly catchy past initial impressions.

* 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.
