* 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.

As noted under BrokenBase, a good amount of people consider this to be the worst season of ''Power Rangers''.

** Apparently, Toei didn't have a problem with the idea of a kid blue ranger, since they ended up using one [[Series/UchuuSentaiKyuranger 20 years later]].

* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: Compared to the ''very'' primitive [[ConspicuousCG computer animation]] used for the Megazord in the [[Film/MightyMorphinPowerRangersTheMovie first film]], the Megazord transformation from ''T:APRM'' uses a set of models which [[ShowAccuracyToyAccuracy are heavily toy-based]] (to the point where the joint connectors are like those on the toy, which ''Carranger'' didn't bother to show), and they look ''really'' good. And then, a pair of ''frigging flame jets'' ignite from the back of Red Lightning to hoist the Megazord upward to face Maligore.

* 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.
** [[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.

** Likewise, The Song of Confusion by Crash and the Creeps from the episode of the same name.

** While ''Series/PowerRangersInSpace'' is given credit to being this for the franchise as a whole, arguably the second half of Power Rangers Turbo laid the groundwork.
* 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.

** Divatox is this due to being a comedic villain and the fandom's general aversion to funny villains for some reason. She also likes to set explosions all over the place and ALWAYS setting them for an hour, enough time for the Rangers to get rid of them!

She also likes liked (at least in the first half of the season) to set explosions detonators all over the place and ALWAYS setting them for an hour, enough time for the Rangers to get rid of them!



* StockFootageFailure: Several members of Divatox's supporting players were redesigned to be much less sinister looking, making spotting the ''Carranger'' footage pretty obvious.

* {{Fanon}}: Based on how Jason and Kimberly were scuba-diving together in the film, some fans have speculated that the two were going out and that Jason was the guy Kimberly left Tommy for in her Dear John letter.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: In the movie, both Tommy and Kimberly are reunited on-screen. Previously, their breakup and Kimberly's Dear John letter to Tommy had been one of the more talked-about subplots in Power Rangers, where there had been a lot of mystery and intrigue surrounding Kimberly's decision to finally break up with Tommy. However, none of this is ever brought up in the movie and both Tommy and Kimberly don't really get to spend any time talking about their past relationship or discussing the actual breakup. Heck, we don't even get to see Kimberly's reaction to how Tommy was now dating Kat.

** 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).
