** There are many fans who dislike Ashley simply because of her actress, Tracy Lynn Cruz. She had dated JohnnyYongBosch and in an interview years later he said once she got on ''Turbo'' she dumped him, stole his money and his car. Johnny (and Adam) was already TheWoobie to fans and some people paint Tracy as evil, saying that she "eats the skulls of babies to survive". Johnny appears to regret letting out that information, due to how bad the backlash got.

** Justin, who had shades of the CreatorsPet. But a lot of it comes mostly from ''concept'' rather than execution. He was a young kid compared to the older Rangers and no matter how hard Blake Foster tried he always stuck out among the group. But as a character he was fairly well rounded: skilled and observant but with moments of jealousy, pride and short-sightedness[[note]]the reason for his inclusion, in case anyone is curious, is because of the fact that, at the time, ''Series/Beetleborgs'', another Saban show, was beating ''Power Rangers'' in the ratings - and the main characters of ''Beetleborgs'' were kids. [[FollowTheLeader Hoping to reverse the ratings decline]], Saban added Justin - while replacing Rocky, who had been around since ''Mighty Morphin'', would've made him unpopular regardless of how old he was, as noted below with Carlos and T.J., adding a kid ranger, despite the fact that arguably much more qualified people such as Tommy's brother or Jason were still around, made things even worse. The reason ''Beetleborgs'' didn't face this problem was because the heroes were established as kids from the start[[/note]].

* StarTrekMovieCurse: 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'').

Ironically, one of the few milestones to avert this curse - ''Series/PowerRangersRPM'', the last Disney season (and prior to Saban buying the rights back, the final season of ''Power Rangers'' as a whole) - was made under almost identical circumstances to ''Turbo'' (adapting the comedic ''Series/EngineSentaiGoonger'' into a dark series).

** Fans are quick to criticize T.J. for losing the Megazords in "Chase into Space, Part 1," even though he only purposely sacrificed one (which had been severely damaged and on the brink of destruction anyways) and legitimately lost the other in the battle. (It's more glaring when you take into account that [[DoubleStandard Tommy gets less criticism for losing far more Zords during his leadership tenure]].)

* OlderThanTheyThink: People often criticize Justin for being a kid who turns into a Ranger, growing to adult size in the process. Super Sentai did it in both ''Series/GoseiSentaiDairanger'' and ''Series/ChourikiSentaiOhranger'' for their {{Sixth Ranger}}s before.

* HilariousInHindsight: As noted under BrokenBase, a good amount of people consider this to be the worst season of ''Power Rangers''. [[Series/PowerRangersRPM The next series]] that adapted a [[Series/EngineSentaiGoonger parody sentai]] into something DarkerAndEdgier, on the other hand, is often considered one of the best, if not the best, ''Power Rangers'' series.

* {{Irony}}: Although it wasn't responsible for saving Super Sentai (despite what the rumors say), ''Carranger'' was the first series to end with higher ratings than the previous one. ''Turbo'', on the other hand, had 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.
