* 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.

* CriticalResearchFailure: The whole reason they created the containment system was to avoid the trope JudgeJuryAndExecutioner that was present on ''Series/TokusouSentaiDekaranger. But hold on. As the narrator would point out almost OnceAnEpisode, whenever the Dekarangers used judgement mode, the case was actually taken to the highest court at the edge of the universe, so if anything, they actually played the first two parts of the trope they were trying to avoid straighter then the source material ever did.

* DoubleStandard: This series, like ''Time Force'', wants to avoid the JudgeJuryAndExecutioner trope by explicitly having SPD not kill the vast majority of monsters they fight. But what makes destroying monsters in this series any different than other power rangers doing it? In some prior series, the baddies they were fighting were essentially just alien criminals and/or members of an evil alien empire, much like the bad guys in this series. ''Lightspeed Rescue'' was a state-sanctioned semi-military force too, and they never questioned the fact that destroying monsters attacking the city was the right thing to do (although, admittedly, they were fighting demons for whom death wasn't necessarily permanent). Would SPD really have been any more morally questionable than other power ranger teams if they had destroyed the bad guys who attacked them, the city and other innocent people? Not to mention the fact that a lot of alien beings were simply wiped out by the Z-wave, including Ecliptor, Elgar and the Machine Empire - the Z-wave didn't seem to have any problem saying that those aliens were just evil and needed to be killed.
** Obvious Difference being that Time Force and SPD were law enforcement agencies. The other Ranger teams were essentially vigilantes, except Lightspeed which was a paramilitary team and they were fighting demons not alien/mutant criminals.
