Trivia / Power Rangers Mystic Force

  • Acting for Two: Barnie Duncan not only played Toby, but he also once reprised his role from S.P.D. as Piggy.
  • Actor Allusion: Mystic Mother, as a tribute to the late Machiko Soga. "Known as Rita in the dark days..." Soga played Bandora (MMPR's Rita Repulsa) in Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger, and Magiel in Magiranger, one of her final roles before her death in 2006.
  • Dawson Casting: Madison is 17-18 years old, while her actress, Melanie Vallejo, was 27 at the time of filming.
  • Fan Nickname: Power Rangers: MystNick Force. Also Power Rangers: Mystic Farce.
  • Name's the Same: Mystic Force isn't the only series with a Xander fighting vampires and other nasties, or a videographer named Madison in the American version. For that matter, she wasn't the first Madison to turn into a mermaid...
  • The Other Darrin: A pity they couldn't get Barbara Goodson to voice the Mystic Mother again.
  • Recursive Import: This series gets dubbed in Japan, but unlike in the case of Power Rangers S.P.D., the Magiranger actors don't get to voice their counterparts, however, Atsushi Hashimoto, who played Kai Ozu/MagiRed, narrates the dub.
  • Romance on the Set: Like their characters, Firass Dirani and Melanie Vallejo dated for a while.
  • Toyless Toyline Character: But only in the US; the Centaurus Wolf Megazord, Koragg's combined Megazord form with his horse Catastros, never got a deluxe toy released in the US. The closest thing is DX WolKaiser from the (Japanese) Mahou Sentai Magiranger toyline.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Madison and Vida were originally not going to be related, as Madison's then-last name was "Grey".
    • Firass Dirani and Richard Brancatisano, who played Nick and Xander respectively, actually tried out for the parts of Xander and Nick respectively.
    • Ron Wasserman originally submitted two potential theme songs for the show, a rock theme and a rap theme, both of which were rejected in favor of what we got.
    • A crossover with S.P.D. was considered, but due to Disney trimming the episode order from 38 to 32, it was scrapped. The closest thing was a cameo from Piggy from the previous series.
  • You Look Familiar:
    • Three subverted examples here - Barnie Duncan and John Tui, previously Piggy and "Doggie" Cruger in S.P.D., are virtually unrecognizable without their heavy prosthetics in the roles of Toby and Daggeron, apart from their distinctive voices. And Kelson Henderson is completely unrecognizable under prosthetics, hideous dentures and a different voice in the role of Phineas. Mystic Mother is almost this, sharing an actress with Rita Repulsa, but it's explained they're one and the same.
    • Played straight with Antonia Prebble (Clare), who previously played two minor characters over the prior two years: Krista, "the tree girl" and Conner's prom date in Dino Thunder, and the Nova Ranger in the S.P.D. finale.
