* TheArtifact: The finale "The End of the Power Rangers" seems like an odd title to name a season that had 12 seasons and counting following it, but this was originally going to be the final season of Power Rangers before Disney was convinced to move production to New Zealand to save cost.
* ChannelHop: How the producers got away with a lot of the season's FamilyUnfriendlyViolence. They told the first network ({{Fox Kids}}) that Cole's parents would've later turned out to be alive. They then "neglected" to tell the second network (ABC Kids) that the death had ever happened, so they didn't have to keep the promise, and they stayed dead.
* DawsonCasting: Max is supposed to be a lot younger than the others even though he's played by an actor the same age as the rest of the actors. [[OlderThanTheyLook It's a little hard to tell, though.]]
* ExecutiveMeddling: Apparently, Forever Red was going to be a two-part episode that would have ended with the rangers summoning their respective megazords and taking down Serpentera together. Disney however did not like the idea of spending money to create the CG zord footage as they didn't have toys to promote and told them to cut it into one episode as the team-up was just expensive in general.
** More meddling came from Bandai, the company that produces Power Ranger toys. After Disney refused to fund Forever Red, the writers asked Bandai for money. They agreed, but only if the episode promoted the Wild Force Rider toy, which is why Serpentera, Lord Zedd's most powerful super weapon, gets taken out by a motorcycle...
* FandomNod: Thanks to AscendedFanboy Amit Bhaumik being on the writing staff that year, he inserted a few references to other fans. For starters, Cranston Plaza was initially supposed to be Herndon Plaza (a reference to Jesse Herndon, alias {{SirStack}}), but [[http://powermorphiconforums.com/index.php?topic=10.0 it couldn't clear legal]]. But there was a "Herndon Labratories" in "The Master's Last Stand", so his name made it in anyway. Another nod was "Reinforcements from the Future" naming the Time Force prison the "Funaro Maximum Security Prison", after another fan, Chris Funaro. And the Mut-Orgs all had backwards dialog that identified them by different names, all of which were modified names of other ''PR'' fans.
* NamesTheSame: The lead general of the Machine Empire in "Forever Red" is named Venjix, which is later used as the name of the main villain in ''Series/PowerRangersRPM''.
* TheOtherDarrin: Zen-Aku was voiced by Creator/DanWoren before being replaced with Creator/LexLang.
* PromotedFanboy: Prior to joining the staff of the show (and writing the episode "Forever Red"), Amit Bhaumik managed a popular ''PR'' fansite, the ''Power Rangers Online Archives''.
* PropRecycling: Most of the Machine Empire stuff in "Forever Red" was taken from ''Series/{{Beetleborgs}}''.
** Master Org's costume was reused (or at least heavily inspired) from the BigBad of ''Series/GoseiSentaiDairanger'', who was replaced with Zedd when brought over as part of ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers''.
** One of the Mutorgs from "Reinforcements From The Future" was Deviot's monster form from ''Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy'' recolored. (They were originally going to use the Orgs from the ''Gaoranger'' movie, but they were lost in a fire.)
* RunningTheAsylum: Mostly when it comes to the teamups (see, TropesAreNotBad.)
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** There are officially 100 Power Animals, but we only ever see 22. Toei actually designed and detailed about a dozen more exclusively for ''Wild Force'', including a peacock with many weapons as its tail feathers and a wallaby with a baby in its pouch. These can be found in the artbook ''Super Sentai Robot Art Collection''.
** Forever Red was originally going to be two parts, though it was forced to become only one part thanks to the fact that another crossover, Reinforcements From the Future, happened recently, not to mention that it was two parts long. Many things were cut out of Forever Red, most notably the original fight with Serpentera.
*** Rocky (the second Red Ranger in ''Mighty Morphin'') was originally scripted to appear in the episode. Unfortunately, Steve Cardenas was in the middle of moving and changing addresses after the producers first contacted him and he forgot to tell them. They couldn't recontact him so they had to do the episode without him. If he did make it, he either would've taken Jason's spot if Austin St. John wasn't available, or become Tommy's butler if he was.
** Much of the ShipTease in this season was supposed to have an actual payoff, with Danny going back to the flower shop with Kendall and Cole and Alyssa being married in a DistantFinale.
** The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oQvGoGxCKq8 teaser]] for this season shown after "[[Series/PowerRangersTimeForce The End of Time, Pt. 3]]" showcased an opening theme completely different from the final, presumably not used due to rights issues from the ''Power Rangers'' franchise's sale to Disney.
** "Reinforcements From the Future" was supposed to use the Three Org Brothers suits from the ''Gaoranger'' movie as the Mutorgs which were unfortunately destroyed in a fire.
** Rumours suggest that had the transition to Disney not been made and Cole's parents needed to not be dead, it would have been revealed that Jindrax and Toxica were Cole's parents transformed into Orgs.
** A WhereAreTheyNow scene for Cole was filmed, showing his new life as a veterinarian, but ultimately went unused.
