** There are theories going around that [[spoiler: Alex being revived after being killed in the first episode]] was probably a pretty traumatic experience for him (some theorizing that he actually [[spoiler: remembers being dead]], and this is what caused him to act so coldly towards the team when [[spoiler: he comes back.]] There are also theories that he was never going to erase the Rangers' memories in the finale, and was merely testing their resolve, but while he knew that [[spoiler: the Rangers would go back to 2001,]] he was completely caught off-guard by [[spoiler: Jen returning her engagement ring to him.]]

* DracoInLeatherPants: Fans seem to treat Ransik as an AntiVillain due to his sympathetic origins when this is not the case as according to [[Creator/LewisLovahug Linkara]]'s WebSeries/HistoryOfPowerRangers, [[spoiler: prior to his redemption]] he is simply a sadistic, murderous criminal. In other words, his reasons for becoming a villain are sympathetic, but his actual motives and actions ''as'' a villain are not.

Added DiffLines:

** They briefly use a clip of Naoto's first morph into TimeFire in place of Erik's morph into Quantum as the actors are so similar looking that in shadow they look the exact same. The downside is, the morpher clearly still says "FIRE" on it.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Though Ransik is well-liked by fans for being a sympathetic AntiVillain who was DrivenToVillainy by the FantasticRacism of humans against mutants like him, some fans unfortunately view him as this since other characters claim that some people did try to reach out to Ransik, but he rejected them. Additionally, a flashback shows he mortally wounded Dr. Fericks who helped him by giving him a serum to help the pain of his mutations, and laughed at his charity as foolish, though Fericks survived by becoming the cyborg Frax. Furthermore, Ransik never shows any desire to help other mutants or make conditions better for them, and takes his vendetta a thousand years into the past where he just causes chaos for the sake of doing it. This is also compounded with the FantasticRacism aspect being off-set by every mutant in the series save for one acting AlwaysChaoticEvil and justifying the fear normal humans have of them.

* HilariousInHindsight: The ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' episode that involved a TimeCapsule in which the rangers talk about their hopes that the world of the future will have no wars, no violence, or prejudice becomes this with regards to how the year 3000 is. [[WebSeries/ATopTheFourthWall Linkara]] even lampshaded the irony with his "History of Power Rangers" episode involving Time Force.

* ItsTheSameNowItSucks: Averted. While PowerRangersWildForce and PowerRangersSamurai have been disliked for being close adaptations of their Sentai, Time Force is beloved despite being at least the third most faithful Ranger series to its Sentai counterpart. Perhaps because its DarkerAndEdgier than the other two. It's also might be because it's not almost ''exactly'' the same; there are several notable differences in terms of episode plots, how the stock footage is used, and in characterization for a few characters (most notably Eric when compared to Naoto and [[spoiler: Alex]] compared to [[spoiler: Ryuuya]]).

** Conversely, other fans see Time Force themselves as this for propping up the racist government that makes threats like Ransik possible. In [[Series/MiraiSentaiTimeranger the Sentai source material]], the Rangers' superior (the analogue to Captain Logan) is actually the true BigBad of the show, and as such it's very easy to spin the main characters' bosses as villains.

* {{Expy}} / CompositeCharacter: Nadira seems to combine [[Series/PowerRangersInSpace Astronema's]] ruthlesness with [[Series/PowerRangersTurbo Divatox's]] LargeHam qualities, as well as being a SpoiledBrat DaddysGirl like [[Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy Trakeena]] was before she TookALevelInBadass.
** Leaning more to the Astronema/Karone side of this, she has an evil father figure who's fiercely loyal to her, undergoes a HeelFaceTurn initially brought on by maternal instinct, has fallen for and [[DatingCatwoman dated]] one of the Rangers, [[spoiler: is nearly killed on accident by a family member in the season finale]], and ultimately becomes a FriendToAllChildren after reforming.

* RetroactiveRecognition: Fans of ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' will probably be surprised that Erin Cahill plays Jen in this series and Heather Mosby in that one.
