* {{Irony}}: This season starts the trend ''Power Rangers'' has where anniversary and milestone seasons have a bad reputation (''Turbo''- 5th season. [[Series/PowerRangersWildForce Wild Force]]- 10th season and first Disney season. [[Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive Overdrive]]- 15th season. [[Series/PowerRangersSamurai Samurai]]- Saban's return to the franchise. [[Series/PowerRangersMegaforce Megaforce]]-20th season). Why this seems happen to anniversary or milestone seasons is beyond us, so of course jokes about anniversary/milestone curses are bound to pop up. These seasons are either considered divisive and/or "Man, how unfortunate, they had a lot of potential..." (''Turbo'' and ''Wild Force'' come to mind), ''or'' they are just considered outright TERRIBLE (*ahem* ''Overdrive'' and ''Megaforce'').

* {{Irony}}: This season starts Although it wasn't responsible for saving Super Sentai (despite what the trend ''Power Rangers'' has where anniversary and milestone seasons have a bad reputation (''Turbo''- 5th season. [[Series/PowerRangersWildForce Wild Force]]- 10th season and rumors say), ''Carranger'' was the first Disney season. [[Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive Overdrive]]- 15th season. [[Series/PowerRangersSamurai Samurai]]- Saban's return series to end with higher ratings than the franchise. [[Series/PowerRangersMegaforce Megaforce]]-20th season). Why this seems happen to anniversary or milestone seasons is beyond us, so of course jokes about anniversary/milestone curses are bound to pop up. These seasons are either considered divisive and/or "Man, how unfortunate, they previous one. ''Turbo'', on the other hand, had a lot of potential..." (''Turbo'' and ''Wild Force'' come to mind), ''or'' they are just considered outright TERRIBLE (*ahem* ''Overdrive'' and ''Megaforce'').such poor ratings that it almost killed the franchise.

** [[DownerEnding The ending]] is a bit of a mixed bag in itself. Not because it was bad at all. On the contrary, it's considered by many to be the best moment in the entirety of Turbo due to just how harsh and intense it got, what with the Command Centre being invaded by an endless wave of mooks then ultimately destroyed (for good, this time), and the Rangers, now powerless, have to set off into space to find Zordon whilst leaving one of their own back on Earth because he's just a kid. The problem is that it's ultimately [[PsychopathicManchild Divatox]] who succeeds in bringing the Rangers down to their DarkestHour after the efforts of more competent and serious villains like Rita, Lord Zedd, and the Machine Empire.

* {{Mondegreen}}: It's not unreasonable to assume the theme song talks about "trifle on the floor" in the first verse.

* BrokenBase: Some people still claim this is the worst season even though arguably, there have been worse seasons since (Operation Overdrive and Super Megaforce in particular are often seen as having taken the Worst Season Title). Some people agree that while the first half was pretty bad the second half was an improvement. Others believed the first half was bad but the second half was even worse for changing the entire cast save Justin (who was decidedly unpopular). However, most can agree that the first 19 or so episodes of Turbo weren't Power Rangers' best.

** Again, it didn't really help matters when the source material it was based on was actually a self-parody of the ''Sentai'' series, so when they tried to make it more "serious", of course they would run into a lot of problems (with the pizza-episode being the most infamous one). Eventually, they managed to work around the source material half-way through the season; but who knows how the series ''[[WhatCouldHaveBeen could]]'' have turned out if they had just taken the risk in the first place of poking fun at themselves (in a [[AffectionateParody lighthearted]] sort of way), writing the slapstick and the comedic/satirical elements in a way so that it is taylored for an American youth audience, and not taking themselves too seriously...

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: General Havoc came off as a far more effective and interesting villain than Divatox, but he just disappeared from the series and only made fleeting appearances in the next series. Some feel that when he was introduced, he should have taken over as the BigBad.

** Alpha 6, also of ''Turbo'', could qualify. While Alpha 5 was dorky-but-lovable, Alpha 6 was an attempt to make Alpha cool by using [[JiveTurkey forced-hip slang]] ("Yo, Rangers!"). It's no coincidence that as ''Turbo'' ended, he was damaged, and his voice chip needed to be [[TheOtherDarrin replaced with one of Alpha 5's]].

* InformedHolocaust: The brief shot of Eltar under attack in the finale appears to show it being nuked repeatedly. And then there's robot Rangers and Alpha 5, who were on Eltar at the time, and were never heard from again.

* HarsherInHindsight: The episode with the Robot Rangers ends with them going to defend Eltar. As in the Eltar that gets attacked and conquered by Dark Spectre. The inevitable conclusion isn't pretty.
