Added DiffLines:

** As noted under ArtisticLicenseHistory on the main page, [[spoiler: in real life, traditional Japanese clans would hand down leadership to the first born son of the family - meaning that regardless of how old Lauren was at the time Jayden had been born, he would have gotten priority over Lauren, unless either a), Lauren was Jayden's older '''Brother''', or b), Jayden was not biologically born a member of the Shiba clan]]. There are 2 possible plots wasted: [[spoiler: if Lauren had been made the red ranger first and Jayden came in to replace her instead of the other way around (what actually happened), this could have given us our first full-time female Red Ranger]]; the other plot is that [[spoiler: Jayden could have been ADOPTED, and the series could have delivered AnAesop about how being adopted does not make one any lesser than someone biologically born into a family]].

** [[TheChessmaster Serrator]] serves as a [[HiddenAgendaVillain Mysterious Nighlok]] whose presence shifts the series into a [[KnightOfCerebus much darker tone]] . [[EstablishingCharacterMoment Introducing himself]] by giving the Rangers a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown and wiping out an army of Moogers sent by the aforementioned [[BigBad Master Xandred]], he offer his services for the latter, acting as his DragonInChief and organizing several unsavory schemes, one of which includes forcing people on an island to fight each other to the death. When Xandred's CoDragons, Octoroo and Dayu, grew wary of his loyalty to Xandred, he reveals to have only served Xandred because his plan to flood the Earth with the Sanzu River, [[DragonWithAnAgenda just happened to had been aligned with his own plan]] while admitting to [[TheStarscream betraying him]] once he has [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness outlived his usefulness]] . Serrator also admits to Dayu to have cursed her and [[spoiler:Deker]] 200 year ago when their house caught on fire. In that time Serrator made a [[DealWithTheDevil deal with Dayu]] to save [[spoiler:Deker's life]], but then tricks her by taking away his memories and turning him into human/Nighlok hybrid forced to walk the earth for all of eternity while taking away her humanity and forcing her to remember what he had done for all eternity, something that Serrator [[{{Sadist}} still takes great joy from]] even now, along with the implication of having started the fire in the first place. Eventually, he would reveal to all of his plan to cause the Earth to crack and the Netherworld to flood it, serving as an attempt to [[TakeOverTheWorld take over both worlds]], completely uncaring about the of lives lost in the process, human and Nighlok alike. Only loyal to [[ItsAllAboutMe himself]] , Serrator serves as one of the most dangerous adversaries that both heroes and villains had ever faced.

** [[TheChessmaster Serrator]] is first introduced as an Nighlok unknown to many, even Master Xandred himself, but soon gets Xandred’s attention by wiping out his army of Moogers, and then [[DragonInChief Serrator]] promises to help Xandred with his goal of flooding the Earth with the Sanzu River. [[KnightOfCerebus Serrator]] then gives the Rangers a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown every time they meet, and forces people on an island to fight each other. When Xandred's CoDragons, Octoroo and Dayu, grew suspicious of Serrator, he tries to kill them and in the process revealed he only [[TheStarscream feigned loyalty to Xandred]] to steal Dayu's Harmonium and use it for [[HiddenAgendaVillain his own plans]]. A furious Dayu [[note]]earlier Serrator promised to give back her Harmonium once he is done fixing it[[/note]] attacks Serrator only for him to [[TheReveal reveal]] that he was the one who caused all of pain and agony she and her lover, [[spoiler:Deker]], had to suffer throughout their eternal lives 200 year ago when their house caught on fire. Serrator appeared before Dayu and, seeing how badly the fire affected [[spoiler:Deker]] makes a [[DealWithTheDevil deal with Dayu]] to save Deker's life, but at the cost Dayu loosing her humanity and spending an eternity in the Netherworld. Dayu accepted, but when Serrator revived [[spoiler:Deker]], he took away his memories and turned him into human/Nighlok hybrid forced to walk the earth for all of eternity, while Dayu must be forced to remembered the deal she made that would forever ruined their lives. Serrator shows no remorse, enjoying in the fact that it cause Dayu so much suffering, and may have been the one who started the fire in the first place. Eventually, everyone, heroes and villains alike, learned that all of his attacks were in a pattern that would cause the Earth to crack causing the Netherworld to flood the Earth. His goal was to [[TakeOverTheWorld rule both worlds]], not caring about the billions of lives in both worlds lost in the process.

* TheScrappy: Jii is considered the worst mentor because of his self-righteous attitude, particularly when he rejected Antonio because he wasn't born into Samurai lineage.

** Also, some are calling ''Samurai'' sexist due to the [[ShotForShotRemake very close adaptation]] to ''Shinkenger''... without accounting for the [[ValuesDissonance differences between cultural views]] on men and women: Japanese adherence to traditional gender roles compared to American more fluid attitudes.

** Ryan from "Deal With A Nighlok" can be considered one, too.

* 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.
