* AccidentalInnuendo: "We're here to toss your salad!"
* AnticlimaxBoss: Maligore. An ancient god of evil...who gets exploded with one non-powered slash.
* {{Asspull}}: The "transition" (term used ''very'' loosely) between ''Series/PowerRangersZeo'' and this series.
* BrokenBase: Some people still claim this is the worst season even though arguably, there have been worse seasons since (Operation Overdrive and Wild Force 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.
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: In TheMovie, Divatox calling (as in, via telephone) Rita Repulsa [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ONk-daUOLI for advice on how to defeat the Power Rangers]]:
-->'''Rita Repulsa''': Ha hahahahah! If I knew that, do you think I'd be lying here listening to ''this''?!\\
''(Rita holds the phone up to a sleeping Lord Zedd, who is snoring very loudly)''\\
'''Rita Repulsa''': My advice to you, Divatox? '''''[[LargeHam RUN]]!!!''''' HAHAHAHAHAHA! ''(slams phone down)''
* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: Meta: When a fan at Power Morphicon asked Steve Cardenas if he regretted being written out of the show, he said no. Why? Because he wouldn't have gotten to meet his replacement otherwise.
** Also, the WordOfGod given around the time of ''[[Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive Operation Overdrive]]'' that the reason Rita and Zedd were PutOnABus was because they were taking maternity/paternity leave and wanted to spend as much time as possible with their son.
** When Bulk and Skull's invisibility wears off at the end of "Stitch Witchery", Lt. Stone is overjoyed to see them again.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: Despite the season's infamy amongst fans, Turbo's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_d-vlvqcVlQ theme song]] has been highly praised.
* EnsembleDarkhorse:
** In real life, Blake Foster, who played Justin, is known to be a pretty nice guy and doesn't regret his time on Power Rangers. As he put it in a convention appearance, "Who ''didn't'' want to be a Power Ranger?" He also kept his Blue Ranger costume and helmet.
** In show, Phantom Ranger, due to how frickin' mysterious he is. So much so, that Phantom got to the final round of the Morphin' Madness fan contest.
* EvilIsSexy: Divatox, for some.
* GrowingTheBeard: The additions of T.J., Cassie, Ashley, and Carlos on-screen, with Judd Lynn taking over writing duties more-or-less concurrently. The new characters and more consistent writing gave new life to an otherwise moribund series. (As noted below, after these changes, the ratings saw noteworthy improvement.) Looking back, the second half of ''Turbo'' gets a far more favorable reception than the first half.
** 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.
* HoYay: Carlos with T.J, Justin with Nico. Cassie and Ashley also got some LesYay in.
* ItGetsBetter: The second half when the new Ranger come in is huge improvement over the first half. To the point many fans makes a distinction between the two halves rather than consider them a single series.
* {{Irony}}: 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).
* MemeticMutation: They were baked into a giant pizza. This is among the most remembered parts of the season.
** To the point of being brought up in "Forever Red".
** [[ARareSentence "The evil pizzas were no match for a simple stoplight."]]
* NeverLiveItDown: Getting baked into a giant pizza. Though in the team-up "[[Series/PowerRangersWildForce Forever Red]]", T.J. did kind of take it in stride, bringing it up in a bit of SelfDeprecation, much to the chagrin of the other Red Rangers (except for Cole, who was quite curious to hear the tale).
** 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]].)
* ReplacementScrappy: More or less averted since its generally considered when the new team took over the writing improved. Though there is still a vocal minority that hates the team simply for replacing Fan Favorites Tommy and Adam, though even then most of the detractors learn to like the new team by ''Series/PowerRangersInSpace''. Not because the characters changed mind you, simply because that season was more well received.
** And it didn't help at all when we learned the producers didn't even have the decency to tell their long-time stars that they'd been fired, and they had to hear about it through gossip from the hair and makeup people.
* TheScrappy: Too many, which is why this series is disliked.
** 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.
** Alpha 6, also of ''Turbo'', could qualify. While Alpha 5 was dorky-but-lovable, Alpha 6 was an attempt to make Alpha cool by using [[JiveTurkey forced-hip slang]] ("Yo, Rangers!"). It's no coincidence that as ''Turbo'' ended, he was damaged, and his voice chip needed to be [[TheOtherDarrin replaced with one of Alpha 5's]].
** Dimitria, both for [[ReplacementScrappy replacing Zordon]] and [[FigureItOutYourself being limited to interrogative statements]] for the first half of the series.
** Elgar, mainly for being obnoxious and not remotely threatening.
** Divatox is this due to the fact she replaced The Machine Empire and whining all the time when she loses. 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 is also seen as Rita-lite most of the time!
** Tommy Oliver has a bit of a hatedom. This appears to be in hindsight, though, since if you ask anybody who grew up in TheNineties their favorite Power Ranger, only those who still watch the show will most likely not say Tommy. Those who insist he is TheScrappy say so for all the usual reasons: SpotlightStealingSquad, MarySue, CreatorsPet...
** 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.
** [[UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom The Blue Senturion]] isn't very popular either. The [[EpilepticTrees fan theory]] that he was, in fact, responsible for the events of ''Series/PowerRangersRPM'' didn't help; though that was eventually {{Jossed}} by [[Series/PowerRangersSamurai "Clash of the Red Rangers"]].
* StockFootageFailure: Several members of Divatox's supporting players were redesigned to be much less sinister looking, making spotting the ''Carranger'' footage pretty obvious. [[http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20101218134042/powerrangers/images/f/fc/Elgar.jpg Especially]] [[http://www.rovang.org/wiki/elgar-sentai.jpg Elgar.]]
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: General Havoc. He was MUCH smarter than any of the show's regular villains, and could take his defeats as little more than setbacks, and, he gets PutOnABus a few episodes after he appears.
* VillainDecay: Divatox was competent enough in the movie. In the show? Not so much.
** Finally inverted at the end when she led an army to the power chamber and utterly destroyed it, and she probably would have killed the rangers (once she discovered they survived) if she hadn't been summoned away
* VindicatedByHistory: Sort of, while it still has a wide spread Hatedom especially by people still wearing NostalgiaGoggles who just remember it as "the season that got rid of Tommy and Adam" reception toward Turbo, especially in the second half has been a lot warmer than when it first aired, helped by the fact that there has been [[Series/PowerRangersWildForce arguably]] [[Series/PowerRangersOperationOverDrive worse]] [[Series/PowerRangersSamurai seasons]]
