* HeroWorship: When Lauren steps in to replace an injured Jayden, the other rangers seemingly cannot go a few minutes without citing how awesome or amazing they think he is. This becomes especially grating when they compare him against Lauren ''with her still in the room.'' (See The Woobie below)



* TearJerker: [[spoiler:Dayu and Deker's new backstories. They were husband and wife, but a fire mortally wounded Deker, destroying their house. Afterwards, Dayu made a DealWithTheDevil, selling her soul to save Deker's life. To twist the knife, the Nighlock making the deal reveals that Deker will be cursed to wander the earth as a half Nighlock[=/=]Half Human forever and will forget Dayu completely. Even Mia [[SympathyForTheDevil feels sorry for them]] after this. Both are ''much'' more sympathetic than their Shinkenger selves.]]
** [[spoiler: You know what's worse? The shamisen that Dayu carries was Deker's wedding gift to her... a simple guitar. Dayu's wedding gift to Deker is his Uramasa sword. Now remember when the shamisen was set on fire? It was as if Dayu was losing the LAST remnant of her love for Deker.]]
** [[spoiler:The deaths of Dayu and Deker. Particularly due to the fact they're both extremely sympathetic.]]
** [[spoiler:You've got to feel sorry for Lauren. She spent her entire life since she was a child mastering the sealing symbol to seal away Master Xandred forever, only for Xandred to gain an immunity to it, rendering her life's work, not to mention the plan her father started, for naught. Never before has a NegatedMomentOfAwesome been so serious]].

** Master Xandred took the title of the most BadAss character in the show from Serrator and makes him look like a mooger. Just watch "The Master Returns" and see what I mean.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Unfortunately, the six main Rangers became this trope after the revelation that [[spoiler: Lauren is the real heir and Jayden merely acted as a body-double while she underwent training for the ultimate sealing technique]]. We're supposed to sympathise with them until they focus so much on Jayden and how ''he'' must feel about having kept this secret from them while blatantly ignoring Lauren's attempts at getting to know and become friends with them or not taking them seriously. Along with repeatedly [[HeroWorship hero-worshipping]] Jayden, so the rest of the Samurai group comes across as just rude to a new team member who is honestly trying her best to make good out of the situation.

** Lauren dedicated her entire life to mastering a sealing technique, only for it to fail. This would be bad enough, however Jayden's injuries forced her to take up the leader mantle. Despite her continuous effects to befriend the Rangers, they do nothing but talk about how awesome Jayden is and ''indirectly compare her to him '''to her face'''''. After her aforementioned technique fails, nobody says so much as two words to her directly.

* EvilIsCool: Serrator. Perhaps the most BadAss character in the show. He shows his power to Master Xandred by destroying an entire army of moogers. Later, he gets a CrowningMomentOfAwesome during his fight with rangers: he [[CurbStompBattle defeats them easily]], turns their own attacks against them, and to top it all off, he says that he wasn't even trying.

** Antonio made his own morpher? Cool. What's this? Jayden has to give up his position as the red ranger [[spoiler: because his sister has come to be the team's leader]]? No problem! Just have Antonio create a 7th morpher so he can fight alongside them and...oh, you're not doing that? Okay. [[Main/SarcasmMode Fine]].

Just have Antonio create a 7th morpher so he can fight alongside them - American-only rangers have [[Series/PowerRangersTurbo been]][[note]]Although in this case, it's more of promoting an existing character to the role of the Sixth Ranger, as opposed to creating an entirely new character[[/note]] [[Series/PowerRangersLightspeedRescue done]] [[Series/PowerRangersJungleFury before]], so there is a precedent for this sort of thing, and...oh, you're not doing that? Okay. [[Main/SarcasmMode Fine]].

** This troper couldn't have been the only one who suspected Spike might become the Gold Ranger, considering the comical aspect of Shinken Gold's portrayal in the original, and the subplot about Bulk training Spike to be a Samurai. What a great twist it could have been to have Spike *actually* become a Samurai ranger, and have to hide his role from Bulk, not to mention the indirect MOA it could have been to have the son of one of our original ThoseTwoGuys become a ranger.
*** Bonus for anyone who remembers the buzz around the Gold Ranger in Zeo; a lot of people speculated it was Skull.
