!! This fanfic contains examples of:

* AdaptationalHeroism: Trask is nowhere near as depraved as his Sentai counterpart, Count Radiguet, who is widely considered one of the most evil SuperSentai villains ever.
** Chris, the Black Ranger, is much more of a team player than his Sentai counterpart, [[ClassicalAntiHero Gai Yuki]], a constant gambler and womanizer.
* AdaptedOut: Tran, the only ''Jetman'' villain with no ''Take Flight'' counterpart.
* AlienInvasion
* AlternateUniverseFic
* AmbiguouslyBrown: Casey, who is simply described as being "of mixed ancestry." She is eventually revealed to be part Middle Eastern, but that's just one parent.
* {{BFG}}: The Phoenix Cannon. The "gravity ball" attacks used by the Sky Enforcers, Echo Enforcers and Battle Enforcers could also count, in a sense.
* BolivianArmyEnding: [[spoiler:Magda's]] final fate.
* CameBackWrong: Dillik's attempt to [[spoiler:clone Sasha]] doesn't go very well.
* CompositeCharacter: Sasha. While based on Maria from the original Sentai, her monster forms were actually Radiguet's.
* CoolCar: The Phoenix Cannon's Phoenix Rover form, although no Ranger ever actually drove it (that was only in ''Jetman'').
* DarkerAndEdgier: Compared to the actual ''Power Rangers'' shows made during TheNineties, particularly with the introduction of [[HumanResources biomass.]] However, the author does take care to edit Sentai footage the way it would be edited for ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' (no smoking, drinking or impalement).
** Although some of the dialogue still probably wouldn't fly in PowerRangers, including some references to premarital sex and quite a few uses to [[NeverSayDie the k-word.]]
* DeadFic: While the first season, based on ''Jetman'' is entirely complete and stands well on its own, the second season of the fic, which partially adapts ''Series/ChoujuuSentaiLiveman'', stopped after the fourth episode and shows no indications of ever getting finished.
* DeathByAdaptation: [[MonsterOfTheWeek Zephyros]]. Like his Sentai counterpart, Dryer Jigen, Zephyros is an IneffectualSympatheticVillain who gets to live in peace at the end of his episode. Unlike his Sentai counterpart, Zephyros returns a few episodes later, gets provoked into growing and destroyed (re-purposing an ImagineSpot from his Sentai episode for this scene).
* TheDollEpisode: "Yesterday's Trash." The MonsterOfTheWeek takes the form of the Blue Ranger's old teddy bear.
* DragonAscendant: [[spoiler:Mainframe.]]
* EliteMooks: Somebodies, via a DeadlyUpgrade.
* FantasticRacism: Trask towards humans, due to how humans drove Vampirians/Vampires away from Earth.
* FiveManBand: As per ''Power Rangers'' tradition:
** TheLeader: Luke
** TheLancer: Chris
** TheBigGuy: Pete
** TheSmartGuy: Maggie
** TheChick: Casey
* GenderFlip: Yellow Lion is male in ''Liveman'', while the Yellow Lion Ranger in ''Take Flight's'' second season is female. [[ShoutOut Her name?]] [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Trini]]. (A different Trini, but ''still''...)
* HomeBase: The apartment the Rangers live in, Parkview, and later on a house by a cemetery after [[spoiler: the apartment becomes a MonsterOfTheWeek.]] Also, the Project: Phoenix hangar, to a lesser extent- during the latter half of the series, it's where the Zords and Dr. Bering are based.
* JustifiedTrope: The series does this to a few PowerRangers tropes, such as why the villains don't send more than one monster at once (they're highly territorial and attack each other on sight...though this still doesn't explain why they don't just send each to a different country) and why no one ever seems to die in the monster attacks ([[spoiler:because the future Rangers knew when the attacks were coming and evacuated the buildings]]).
* NoodleIncident: We don't exactly ''learn'' what caused Maggie to break up with her ex-boyfriend Sean, but WordOfGod says that infidelity is a likely reason, given how Sean tries to be more honest with Maggie in his attempts to win her back.
* MythologyGag: The final scene has Luke encounter a mugger on the day of a wedding, just like Gai in the Jetman finale. Unlike Gai however, [[spoiler:he survives it.]]
** The project that initially spawned the Ranger tech was named "Project: Jetman", mainly because the Echo Blasters featured the name on the sides and he couldn't edit those out. [[spoiler: Not only that, but thanks to a wormhole generator, [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Zordon of Eltar]] assisted Dr. Bering prior to the first episode.]]
* OurVampiresAreDifferent
* PowerFist: The Battlizers that the Rangers used, which could fire a "Battlizer Beam" and enter a "Striker Mode" for powered punches. They later got a MidSeasonUpgrade where they were now larger, and the back portion was now a remote-controlled called a Battle Bird, which could also combine with their Sky Blasters to form Battle Enforcers.
* RealityEnsues: It turns out that making unexcused absences ''will'' attract the attention of your boss, as well as make you run the risk of ''losing your job''. [[spoiler: Fortunately for Luke, his boss was smart enough to put two and two together, and is pretty okay with it.]]
* RetCon: A few, as detailed in the commentary, but one of the most notable ones is the explanation that the talk button on the [=AviMorphers=] doesn't work when unmorphed, thus explaining the lack of communication between the Rangers outside of battle.
* ScriptFic: The story is written entirely in script format. Like an actual ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' season, the storylines and scripts are even written with stock footage from the adapted ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' season in mind.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: Chris. His Sentai counterpart, Gai Yuki, is killed by a mugger on the wedding day of his former love interest Kaori and romantic rival Ryu. Chris, meanwhile, has a much more successful relationship with Casey; the first season ends on their wedding day. The mugger scenario was given to Luke, who's saved by Lisa.
* SecretKeeper: Quite a few, actually. Likely to keep in with the fic's (slightly) more realistic tone; obviously ''someone'' will suspect something.
* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: Averted nicely- the scripts and several other clues say that Spring Valley is this world's counterpart to Oakland, CA. Other towns were mentioned on occasion, all of which are stated in the scripts to be alternate locations to real-world towns, with the exception of Windvale.
