* ''Power Rangers'' beat ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' to the punch at a ''Franchise/KamenRider'' crossover, thanks to ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers''[='=] PoorlyDisguisedPilot story arc for ''Series/MaskedRider'' by a long gap. To elaborate: Said ''MMPR'' episodes aired in 1995. The ''Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger'' crossover arc of ''Series/KamenRiderDecade'' aired in 2009, or '''14 years later'''.
** Though considering that ''Masked Rider'' was not an outright crossover in regards to ''MMPR'' (said episodes were his debut appearances, after all), ''Power Rangers'' still beat ''Sentai'' at a crossover with ''Series/PowerRangersInSpace''/''Series/NinjaTurtlesTheNextMutation''. What makes it amusing is that ''In Space'' and ''Shinkenger'' are both fan-favorite seasons of their respective shows, whereas ''The Next Mutation'' is [[CanonDiscontinuity what Peter Laird and TMNT fans see in their nightmares]] and ''Decade'' provoked much "Forever Red"-worthy {{Flame War}}s over the endgame of its story...
* ''Power Rangers'' also had a female Red Ranger before ''Super Sentai'': [[Series/PowerRangersSPD SPD]]'s A-Squad leader Charlie, to Shiba Kaoru, the female [[Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger ShinkenRed]], a 4-year difference. And both characters aren't really good news for the Rangers.
* AdoredByTheNetwork: British channel Kix. They love the show so much, that their second channel, Kix Power, is named after Power Rangers and for the first six weeks is showing nothing else!
* BeamMeUpScotty: Zordon never told Alpha to recruit "teenagers with attitude." He asked for "overbearing and overemotional humans." Alpha said, "not that, not teenagers!" The phrase was used in the introduction, but was a way to condense that scene. Became a [[RecruitTeenagersWithAttitude trope namer]].
* CashCowFranchise
* ChannelHop:
** Started on {{FOX}}, but when the FoxKids block died it went over to Creator/{{ABC}} and Disney's cable channels (but, [[ScrewedByTheNetwork strangely]], not DisneyXD when it launched).
** Then Saban got it back and struck a deal to have it aired on {{Nickelodeon}} and {{Nicktoons}}. Once Saban bought out FourKidsEntertainment, they took advantage of the included [[TheCW CW]] programming block and immediately scheduled ''Power Rangers'' as part of the {{Vortexx}} launch lineup.
*** And starting with ''Super Megaforce'', CartoonNetwork will air the series in Latin America, despite its US broadcasting rights still belonging to Nick.
* DawsonCasting: Quite frequently. The first season had characters in high school played by actors in their early-to-mid-twenties, some of whom did a better job than others. The trope page compares Austin and AJJ to show how men are less convincing at this than women, especially since Austin ''was'' a teenager when he started playing Jason (although to be exact Austin was actually in his late teens, therefore he was fully mature physically and it showed, which actually contrasted with the age of his character, who was earlier in high school) Jason Chan was already 30 when he played Cam in ''Ninja Storm''-- although, to be fair, Cam's age is never specified and it's not uncommon for a SixthRanger like himself to be an adult.
* ExecutiveMeddling: Originally all the villains were suppose to be vaporized by Zordon's wave in countdown (excluding Karone/Astronema of course). FoxKids' BS&P forbade them to kill off the human villains.
** This is why Wes and Jen didn't kiss at the end of ''Time Force.'' Although it's also why Eric survived.
** Also in ''SPD'', as far as making the Omega Ranger a ball of light when he wasn't morphed because the producers decided to spend most of the budget creating an all-original Zord/Monster fight for the finale.
** Supposedly why Tommy wasn't killed off when his ''Super Sentai'' equivalent was, though also the reason why he came back as the SixthRanger a second time - a good example of TropesAreNotBad.
** There seems to be some of this going on since Saban took the rights back. As we understand it, Nickelodeon is making Saban stretch each adaptation out to two seasons, or limiting seasons to 20 episodes as they do with some of their original series thereby forcing Saban to take two years to do a full adaptation. Combined with longstanding contracts with Toei that don't let them skip any ''Sentai'', it becomes kind of frustrating for fans as ''Rangers'' keeps falling further behind ''Sentai''.
*** This resulted in ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger'' being adapted as a power-up for the Megaforce Rangers, who start out with the ''Series/TensouSentaiGoseiger'' suits. And now there's word out that ''TokumeiSentaiGoBusters'' may be skipped over entirely, with the announcement of an adaptation for ''ZyudenSentaiKyoryuger'' out first.
* FakeAmerican: From ''Ninja Storm'' onward, production took place in New Zealand, with mostly local actors trying their darnedest to pretend they didn't have Kiwi accents. Subverted by Xander in ''Mystic Force'', who didn't even bother hiding his accent and was eventually handwaved as a native Australian that immigrated to the States.
** In ''RPM'', there's a fake ''Scotsman'' (Blue Ranger Flynn); also played by a Kiwi.
** Although his race is never stated, Antonio from ''Samurai's'' last name is Garcia hinting at a hispanic background, though he could just as easily be filipino which would be closer to his actor's ''Thai/German''! heritage.
*** Of course there is also the two red rangers that have the last name of Shiba being played by white actors. In this case they are both of Japanese decent. Most likely descended from all Male Shiba's, thus keeping the last name of Shiba despite not looking Japanese.
* FridayNightDeathSlot: A variant. Because the series was not an EdutainmentShow, many ABC affiliates refused to carry it in its assigned late Saturday morning timeslot and often relegated it to air at 5am on Saturday or Sunday before the church shows or farm report. Some even threw it out entirely as they regarded the show as radioactive to their attempts to maintain that their children's shows were all educational. And on the stations where it ran when it was supposed to, that timeslot tended to be preempted for sports.
** While the [[ChannelHop move to]] {{Nickelodeon}} solved that initially, now they've moved Megaforce from Saturday at 1pm to Sunday at 8am [[http://www.nickandmore.com/2013/05/29/nicks-summer-schedule-has-less-spongebob-more-everything-else/]], which is a problem because some viewers may be at church or still in bed.
* InternationalCoproduction: Between Saban Entertainment/Disney/Saban Brands from the United States, Toei Company in Japan, and later Village Roadshow in New Zealand.
** Toei also has half of the copyright ownership of all things ''Power Rangers''.
* JustForFun: [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]]'s semi-serious analysis series, HistoryOfPowerRangers
** And the even less serious Overanalyzed series by Girls Heart Geeks on Youtube.
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: During ''RPM'' and the ''Mighty Morphin'' ReCut, Disney pulled all of the previous seasons from American television, and even the current seasons were constantly pre-empted for half of the country. Saban would fix this during ''Samurai'' by uploading the entire series run to Netflix, and contracting Creator/ShoutFactory to release [=DVDs=].
* NamesTheSame: There are a two ladies named Kat; one's a love interest for Tommy and the Pink Turbo Ranger, and the other a space faring CatGirl from ''[=SPD=]''.
** There's also Mike the Magna Defender and Mike the Green Samurai Ranger. Incidently there's another Green Samurai Ranger too. Also; two Thunder Megazords, two sets of Ninja Zords and two sets of Dino Zords.
* NoExportForYou: In South Korea, from Ninja Storm onwards, combined with TranslationMatchmaking below. Also in New Zealand (where oddly the show is being shot) until ''Samurai''.
* OldShame: Having had ''Power Rangers'' forced on their laps in order to acquire [[Creator/ABCFamily the Family Channel]], Disney considered the entire series an embarrassment, enough to quickly send it back home to Saban the moment they bought out [[Creator/MarvelComics the gold mine of more evergreen boys' superhero properties]]. Also, though most actors are happy to have been a part of the franchise and embrace the fandom, there are some that consider their role this:
** David Yost (Billy, the first Blue Ranger) hid from the fandom after the show ended, as he revealed in a 2010 interview he was gay and that he quit the show after being thrown way too many homophobic slurs by the behind-the-camera staff and nobody would do anything about it. Though the behind-the-scenes problems ruined the experience for him, Yost made it clear that he still enjoyed the experience of playing Billy, greatly appreciates the fans' kindness and sympathy, and has apparently maintained ties with the other actors (as evidenced by a recent photograph of him, Jason David Frank, and Walter Jones eating lunch together). When Saban invited him to cameo in ''Super Megaforce'', Yost declined, comparing it to an abusive ex trying to get back together with you.
** Amy Jo Johnson (Kimberly, the first Pink Ranger) also fell under this during the late 90's and early 2000's. At the time she was trying to make it as a singer/songwriter and didn't want to talk about it. In recent years she no longer considers her time with the show as old shame.
** The only known actor who was known to have considered the show to be an old shame is Danny Slavin (Leo, the Red Galaxy Ranger), who only did the role to [[IWasYoungAndNeededTheMoney pay for law school]]. He nearly sat out the "Forever Red" reunion and forced production to use a FakeShemp like they did with Aurico, but was talked into filming a few unmorphed scenes late in the process. [[TheBusCameBack He later also returned]] for Super Megaforce's version of the Legend War, despite having not acted in 10 years.
** For a different variety of example, when Ron Wasserman recorded new versions of several songs from the series, he intentionally did not redo "White Ranger Tiger Power" because of the UnfortunateImplications of the song's title.
* SavedFromDevelopmentHell: The attempts in TheEighties and early Nineties by Saban (and Creator/MarvelComics before that -- retroactively prophethic, since one of the reasons Saban managed to repurchase and thus save the series so easily is that Disney just finished acquiring Marvel at the time (both brands filled the same boys' superhero properties niche)) just to get the pilot picked up by a network, ANY NETWORK. It was only when Saban went to FoxKids, and Margaret Loesch ([[http://www.blastfromthepasttv.com/mloeschinterview.html who worked with]] Creator/StanLee on the Marvel attempt) who was the head at the time, that the show was picked up. This combined with the Uncancelled entry below, brings new meaning to the lyric, ''No one can ever take them down..''
* ScrewedByTheNetwork: Disney's actions towards the series, including the show's gradual disappearance from cable, scheduling ''RPM'' where it can constantly be pre-empted and timeshifted, and the lack of full-season DVD sets in the US.
** NetworkToTheRescue: Saban bought the rights back.
** While the series' airing on {{Nickelodeon}} brought with it large amounts of marketing and brought it renewed popularity, Nickelodeon also severely cut down the number of episodes per season, forcing ''Samurai'' to be dragged out for two years in order to fit in the whole story, and forcing Saban to adapt ''Series/TensouSentaiGoseiger'' as the twentieth anniversary season instead of the more appropriate ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger''.
