* {{Asspull}}: Nearly ''all'' the Rangers' weapons and gear are given little to no explanations as to how they got them, though most of them have at least ''some'' explanation. The Quasar Launchers take the cake, however, simply appear out of nowhere with no background story provided.
* CompleteMonster: [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Deviot]], in a show full of [[EvenEvilHasStandards villains with standards]], had none. He was a [[ManipulativeBastard manipulative]], treacherous [[TheStarscream Starscream]] who would cheerfully throwaway his men's lives, thought brainwashing was a useful tool, and had no loyalty to anyone. When [[DiscOneFinalBoss Scorpius]] wouldn't allow him to enter the cocoon, Deviot arranged for his death. When [[DaddysLittleVillain Trakeena]], and not he, inherited control of the army, he sends two of his men to kill her; when she survives the assassination attempt, he kills the assassins to cover his tracks. He later brainwashed [[OldSoldier Loyax]] into fighting the Rangers, leading to his death as well. When Trakeena finally does enter the cocoon, Deviot ambushes her, and fuses with her. The absorption of his evil soul drives Trakeena completely over the edge, leading her to murder her {{mentor}}, [[NobleDemon Villimax]], use her men as suicide bombers, and try to regain her human form by stealing the LifeEnergy of others. Totally untrustworthy, and out only for himself, Deviot proved that on his own, or influencing Trakeena, he could do more damage than any other villain in ''Lost Galaxy''.
* SugarWiki/CrowningMusicOfAwesome:
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ojS3fIqZdio Magna Defender theme]][[note]]The link is to a cover version; the original version is difficult to locate[[/note]].
** "[[EarWorm TURN ON THE POWER! POWER RANGERS!]]" which must be [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=koX5UJy4QiI one of the catchiest]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IR71bNVfen4 theme tunes]] in history.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L3IRJr1IWRE And then we get the official remix for the OST.]]
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Kendrix for her [[spoiler: DyingMomentOfAwesome]].
** Kai is probably the most popular male Blue Ranger in the franchise with the ladies, after [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Billy]], [[FirstInstallmentWins of course]].
** The [[spoiler:first]] Magna Defender for being the first truly morally gray "hero" in the franchise's run.
** The season as a whole, when compared to more popular seasons like [[Series/PowerRangersTimeForce Time Force]], [[Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder Dino Thunder]], and [[Series/PowerRangersInSpace In Space]], still has a strong fanbase and is remembered fondly by many.
* EvilIsSexy: Trakeena. See SugarWiki/FunnyMoments.
* FoeYay: Leo and Trakeena in "An Evil Game". [[PunctuatedForEmphasis That. Is. All.]]
* GrowingTheBeard: The series starts off slow, but the Magna Defender arc and the resolution brought in the permanent SixthRanger and really started developing the characters both good and evil.
* HarsherInHindsight: The final battle. {{Mooks}} as suicide bombers against innocents was a MoralEventHorizon at the time it aired, but now...
* HilariousInHindsight:
** At least for ''Series/DoctorWho'' fans, see ShoutOut on the main page. Oh Creator/StevenMoffat, surely you did not watch ''Power Rangers'', didn't you?
** Also, in regards to the above scene with Trakeena and the wrench? The guy is Damon, whose actor later married Trakeena's actress.
** In ''Series/PowerRangersInSpace'', Karone, when she was still Astronema, kidnapped Ashely and impersonates her to destroy the Space Rangers from within. After that plan fails, she scornful exclaims, "I wouldn't want to be a Power Ranger anyway!"
* IronWoobie: Maya
* JerkassWoobie: Trakeena when taken into account that turning into a monster that had to be destroyed wasn't of her own choice at all and she was dragged into it by Deviot.
* ItGetsBetter: Like most Ranger series, early filler episodes may put off new viewers, but, when the Magna Defender shows up, the show gets really good, and, moreover, it ''stays'' good.
* LesYay: Maya and Kendrix.
* LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt: Yes, this is the first -and thus far ''only'' season- to show us the onscreen death of a Power Ranger. Yes, it was a factor of RealLifeWritesThePlot, but after 6 previous seasons where Rangers would survive every attack thrown at them, even when they were unmorphed, it came completely out of left field.
* MagnificentBastard: Deviot
* SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome:
** The Space Rangers showing up in "To The Tenth Power", and helping the others kick the Psychos' asses.
** Leo vs. Trakeena.
** Just about everything with The Magna Defender.
* MoralEventHorizon: Trakeena crossed it when she attempted to attack Terra Venture with Stingwinger '''suicide bombers'''. ''And'' she [[SinkTheLifeBoats targeted the escape pods]], too. (TheDragon, a NobleDemon even more so than Diabolico, and who trained her, tried to stop her because his MoralityPet child friend was on one. She killed him, with him refusing to resist out of loyalty.)
* {{Narm}}: Mike's death in the first episode is a very well done, emotional scene...until Damon starts shouting his name, looking just as distraught as the others, despite having no idea who Mike is.
* SpecialEffectFailure: The magic spell used to turn Mirinoi's inhabitants to stone is an obvious Photoshop filter.
** Additionally, the box that originally contained the Lights of Orion is a modern lockbox. They didn't even paint it to make it look like an ornate, ancient treasure chest.
* SuperlativeDubbing: Near-unanimously considered superior to [[Series/SeijuuSentaiGingaman its source material]].
* TearJerker:
** Scorpius' final moments with his daughter, showing that, despite being, you know, EVIL, the two did in fact, love each other. This also doubles as a SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments.
** If you didn't tear up during the near climax of Redemption Day then you have no soul.
** Poor Kendrix... [[spoiler:Sure, the Quasar Sabers' restoration effect reconstructed her body at the end, but it was still heartrending.]]
** Magna Defender remembering how his son was killed when Scorpius pillaged their homeworld. The scene where he weakly crawls towards Zika's corpse is pretty heartbreaking.
** And then his sacrifice when he starts crawling toward the volcanic pit when the scene changes, with him walking with his son and holding hands.
*** When the scene changes back to the volcanic pit, Magna Defender is holding the flowers that his son gave him in the vision...[[ManlyTears Why did my screen suddenly get blurry?]]
** Trakeena [[spoiler: killing Villamax in the GrandFinale. Villamax refuses to open fire on a spaceship filled with civilians, but Trakeena is hard-pressed on it. Trakeena then lays down a CurbStompBattle on Villamax and kills him.]]
* VindicatedByHistory: Inverted. It used to be known as one of the best Power Rangers seasons at the time when it first aired but fans becoming more aware of it's flaws and having [[Series/PowerRangersTimeForce more]] [[Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder popular]] [[Series/PowerRangersSPD seasons]] [[Series/PowerRangersRPM since]] leaves Lost Galaxy in a strange middle ground, considered better than [[SoOkayItsAverage average]] but not well liked enough to be a [[EnsembleDarkhorse fan favorite]].
** That said, it does still have many fans who consider it to be one of the best seasons of the show, likely due to it having a slightly darker tone than most of the subsequent iterations.
* WhatAnIdiot: Yes, Trakeena framed Treachoron, but does he seriously think that killing the Boss's daughter is a good idea? Not that it matters as he dies before Scorpius ever found out he attempted it.
