* FanNickname: The four unnamed A-Squad Rangers = Rachel (Pink), Cliff (Green), Ivan (Yellow) and Beevor (Blue) (the last being the most visibly alien one), To which Bruce Kalish approved at a convention so they are somewhat canon.

* FridgeBrilliance: One episode has mind control wear off of the Rangers when they morph. So (comics aside) we know the A-Squad was NotBrainwashed the moment we see them in morph.
* FridgeLogic: Where the hell does Cruger's ''nose'' go when he turns into the Shadow Ranger?
** This was [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in [[Series/TokusouSentaiDekaranger Dekaranger]]. Kruger simply hung his head and said "Don't ask me that."
* Does no one even consider that Sam the Omega Ranger and Sam the kid that Z rescued are the same person? It possibly Doggie knows but just care.
** FridgeBrilliance: It's already in canon from ''Series/PowerRangersTurbo'' that morphing can change your body, seeing as Justin grew from child to adult. Changing Cruger's face is far less jarring a transformation than that. It probably is possible.
** The planet [[Series/DoctorWho Gallifrey]] showed up in a list of planets visited during ''In Space'', so maybe the helmet has TARDIS technology?
* HilariousInHindsight: [[spoiler: Omni, the final villain of the series, is a extremely powerful sentient space-ship, capable of warping people's minds to serve him. [[Franchise/MassEffect Sound familiar?]]]]

** Unless it's also a mask In-Universe.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: More like characters traits from Dekaranger. In the original series, the rangers had several specializations like Hoji being a sniper and their guns suggested those characteristics. Those were never used in SPD.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Bridge. Everyone ''loves'' Bridge.
** Hell, in the aforementioned [[Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive Operation Overdrive]] 15th Anniversary special, which featured 5 former Rangers returning, Bridge was included as the SPD representative, and as the [[Series/PowerRangersMysticForce Green Mystic Force]] & [[Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm Blue Ninja Storm]] Rangers were used, they gave him an off-screen promotion to Red Ranger to justify his inclusion.
** This may even be true in-universe: at the start of the series, Jack and Sky and Syd and Z have their respective personality clashes, but Bridge is the first to accept the newcomers while maintaining his relationship with the holdovers. And when the team presses Piggy for information on the alien who abducted Bridge in "Missing", Piggy says, "Oh, no. Not Bridge. He's the one of you I dislike the least."

* AngstWhatAngst: Omega Ranger sure is chipper for a guy from a BadFuture that becomes stuck in another time and can't demorph without turning into a ball of light. And remember, Omega is [[spoiler: an older version of Sam, the kid that considered B-Squad his first real friends]]. In his original timeline, [[spoiler:B-Squad died]] - a fact that doesn't particularly concern Omega at all when interacting with them. And note that he behaved this way ''before'' he SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong.

* WhatAnIdiot: Broodwing, for thinking that trying to bring back the [[Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder Dino Rangers]] from the past to help him destroy Earth was a good plan. Wereas in previous team-up episodes where that kind of thing happened, the involved villains ([[Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy Trakeena]] and [[Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm Lothor]]) were careful to ensure they could control those they brought back through MindControl or other system, he just brings them back and expects them to agree with a WeCanRuleTogether speech. That despite the fact that, like all Rangers, they had been protecting Earth for years... [[SarcasmMode yeah,]] [[NiceJobFixingItVillain very smart Broodwing]]].

** Afterall, Omega is [[spoiler: still an older version of Sam]], and even if he can't still know if he succeded in his mission, he's still living both the dream of his lifetime, fighting with the legendary B-Squad and helping them on equal grounds, both going on in his mission.

* ShockingSwerve: The A-Squad being evil. We're given no backstory for how it happened, so it seems like they all just woke up one day and decided they were tired of being the good guys.

** During the Body Swap episode with Sky and an alien criminal, Sky desperately tries to figure out a way to let the others know what happened and it never ONCE occurs to him to go to Bridge...the PSYIC! The climax ends with...the robotic dog figuring it out.
