Fridge: Power Rangers S.P.D.
Fridge Brilliance
  • Sky says that Bridge can't help wiggling his fingers when he says "buttery" because it's part of his cellular makeup; that may seem like a lame Sci-Fi Hand Wave at first, but then think about it. Bridge's powers are channelled through his hands, as are the "buttery" finger wiggles. I conclude that Bridge's powers are linked to buttery toast!
    • Since Bridge's Psychic Powers are channeled through his hands, it means that his hands have a much deeper connection to his brain and senses than a person should. Making gestures without thinking them through sounds like an obvious consequence.
  • Doggie asking Sky if he would follow Syd if he made her the leader could be seen as a subtle nod to Dekaranger, where in the first episode, Umeko/DekaPink believed she was the new leader.

Fridge Horror
  • The morphers judgement mode having the Rangers play Judge, Jury, and Executioner was given a weak Hand Wave by saying the scanners on the morphers were infallible...but the biological makeup of the various alien races they fought against was so different, it would have taken one small programming error for an innocent alien to be declared guilty, or vice-versa. The only thing mitigating this from turning the Rangers into an army of Judge Dredds is that they only digitize the criminals into cards as opposed to executing them, so in case there's an innocent declared guilty, they can at least digitize him and detain them for further questioning.
    • There's only one problem to that... Kat said that the Morpher never makes mistakes.

Fridge Logic
  • Meta example: Assuming the Super Sentai/Power Rangers franchises are around long enough, how will the timeline be handled when the viewers are living in 2025, the year in which SPD is set?
    • Make another series based in the future?
    • RPM was declared an alternate-universe/possible future in Clash of the Red Rangers. Presumably the same will be true of the Power Rangers season that airs in 2025, if there is one.
    • I present for your perusal 1984, 2001 A Space Odyssey... Actually there's a similar issue being handled over in Keroro Gunso. There's an existing character named Angol Mois, based around Nostradamus' original doomsday prophecy, which was proven moot by the time the anime caught up to the manga. The solution? The anime reveals that there's a dozen other world-destroying aliens out there, similar to Angol Mois, but "scheduled" to every doomsday prophecy out there, including the Mayan 2012 one. History Marches On, kind of.
    • We'd better at least get some serious Shout Outs.
  • The idea of the A-Squad's Face-Heel Turn. Even in the first episode it's mentioned that something's off about them, which was well before Emperor Grumm arrives. This indicates the team was already corrupt before his arrival.
    • Or they could have been in contact with Grumm before he officially showed up on Earth.
