* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Creator/JohnnyYongBosch has said that he personally played Adam in "Once A Ranger" as someone who had grown into a lone warrior traveled 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.

* VindicatedByHistory: In recent years though, after everything's cooled down, some fans have admitted there were some good ideas and, compared to ''Mystic Force'', at least managed its characters better (actually focusing on the rangers this time and distributing equal time to the villains. Especially since there are four factions this time). The serialized nature of the season in contrast to others meant that the plot was always moving forward- finding this MacGuffin to find the other, which leads to the next Jewel, which starts the hunt for the next MacGuffin... The execution, on the other hand, really hampered the series and brought down what otherwise is a pretty decent globe-trotting adventure story. The general opinion on ''Overdrive'' these days is "Interesting premise, lackluster execution."

** To a lesser extent people have compared it favorably to the [[PowerRangersSamurai most]] [[PowerRangersMegaforce recent]] seasons. Though you're as likely to find people who despise ''Overdrive'' just as much.

Added DiffLines:

* LoveItOrHate:
** The theme song. A majority hate it but others have cited it's not as bad as many make it either. It feels like the hate is more just from initial reaction and never really letting it sink in (rap is a pretty diverse genre of music). Most fans have admited it pretty catchy if given the chance and that there are worst rap themes out there.
** The show itself. It has a lot of shortcomings, but some good ideas that are pulled off nicely as well and the overall story is still a pretty decent watch.

* MoralEventHorizon: While Flurious is never a nice guy from the start, [[spoiler:tricking his brother, who'd come on his hands and knees offering peace, into handing over the Corona Aurora with an offer of friendship, then killing him off in cold blood definitely pushes him over the line.]]
** Kamdor crosses it when [[spoiler:he traps Miratrix in the same jewel she freed him from when he tells her she is no longer of use to him. Sure, Miratrix was a greedy ninja who used Dax's affections, but her fate crossed it for her master]].

** With that said a valid argument could be made for a Power Ranger team-up episode to have the two ranger teams actually work together. Even if the Overdrive Rangers stuck to battling the Brothers and flunkies while the Rangers handled the major threats, or they stood on to act as support in some fashion, it wouldn't have been received with quite the same negative reaction. [[note]]It doesn't help the Overdrive team still has their civilian powers, which they have frequently used to dispatch the flunkies of the season. Unfortunately, said powers are not mentioned once the entire team up.[[/note]]

* NeverLiveItDown: Will's actor, Samuell Benta's "banner incident" ''still'' hasn't seemed to die down in the fandom yet, and it happened in ''2007''. This is because, when he claimed he was invited back for ''Super Megaforce'', fans were absolutely ''outraged'', and all of a sudden everything erupted again. Although, generally speaking, stealing from a charity for sick and dying kids is generally a very good way to be remembered for just that one thing for as long as you live no matter what else you do in your life.
