* {{Anvilicious}}: The discussion of racism in episode 11. The discussion is lampshaded.
* AuthorsSavingThrow: After seemingly throwing away the subplot of the Elves taking advantage of the Rangers' guilt, Ragnar sends a living monster. There's little doubt this is in response to one reviewer asking why the subplot had to be dropped.
** It could also be argued that the plot-heavy ''Supercharged'' was this after the more episodic and weaker Part 2.
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: "Do you wonder if ghosts can have sex?"
* DeusExMachina: Borderline and open to interpretation, which is why it's in here and doesn't belong in the main page. At the beginning of Episode 15, Hitomi prays for help [[spoiler: when Sean, Kevin and Maria show up]]. But since [[spoiler: Tommy Oliver himself got the three out of their HeroicBSOD s]], it may not count.
* FridgeBrilliance / [[FridgeHorror Horror]]: Ragnar [[spoiler: activates a force field that cuts Madison off from the rest of the world in chapter 20. At first, he says it's so that no one can get in or out. He's only preparing for an attack, right? It's not just that. He also has a bomb. The force field prevents anyone from getting ''out'' as well. He's ensuring maximum casualties should things go wrong.]]
* GrowingTheBeard / ItGetsBetter: Both parts, but Part 2 might be the better example. It started off well, but started to slip around episode 20. However, the appearance of Gargotron, [[spoiler: the Silver Ranger, and Tom Maelstrom]], are signs the story is starting to pick up steam. [[spoiler: Episodes 31-33 are where it turns into a steamroller.]] As for ''Supercharged'', it starts to pick up around chapter seven and by chapter 11, the beard is fully grown.
** Supercharged Part 2 might also be getting this treatment. Starting with TheReveal that [[spoiler: Jimmy is a Project Ranger trainee]] and a better, more flow-y prose style, Part 2 is getting better.
* HarsherInHindsight: Just days after the most recent chapter--which includes racist taunting by members of a fraternity--was posted, a RealLife fraternity was [[http://www.npr.org/2015/03/09/391915162/oklahoma-university-fraternity-closed-after-racist-chant-video-posted disbanded]] after video of members making racist chants was posted.
* HilariousInHindsight: The title of the story ("Grand Prix", what [=GPX=] is short for here, is how the episodes of ''Series/EngineSentaiGoOnger'', adapted into ''Series/PowerRangersRPM'', are labeled as), and the fact that [[Series/PowerRangersSamurai the Blue Ranger is named Kevin]].
* HoYay: Subverted. Sean and Jimmy look like they might be having this moment at one point, but later Lampshaded by Jimmy. The narration later says it's not Ho Yay.
** One might be forgiven for believing that there's some of this between Sean and Daisuke. Again, subverted, since the two hate each others' guts.
** A more straight-forward version could be between Sean and Ritchie, who end up becoming BashBrothers.
* IKnewIt: [[spoiler: When Gina is revealed as an elf, one reviewer invoked this phrase word-for-word.]]
* LesYay: Lampshaded when Maria asked Hitomi out on a 'girl-date'; "Are you a lesbian?"
** "No, that's not what I meant."
*** What Maria meant was just a day out with Hitomi, nothing romantic, so in essence, this makes this a SubvertedTrope.
** Quite a bit of this in recent chapters between [[InterspeciesRomance Hitomi and Gina]].
*** Said Les Yay is getting quite blatant, with Gina going so far as to [[spoiler: telling Hitomi how much she means to her during a HeroicBSOD and her confession sounding like she was [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything coming out]] [[ComingOutStory of the closet]]... as an elf.]]
*** [[spoiler: And now it's been confirmed that both of them are, at least unknowingly, in love with each other.]]
* {{Moe}}: Hitomi. She ''is'' the cute one, after all.
* MomentOfAwesome: ''ALL'' of Episode 15.
* MoralEventHorizon: Several possiblities:
** Phaedos kidnaps a little kid and then threatens to ''burn all of Japan and kill the kid'' just to smoke out two Rangers in Part 1.
** The alchemist Ronald threatens to torture the Rangers and kill everyone on the SIU campus. He [[spoiler: doesn't follow through on it, but he came very close.]]
** Ragnar [[spoiler: killing a Project Ranger trainee live on air.]]
** He [[spoiler: solidifies this when he kills Maria's best friend in episode 35.]]
* PuritySue: Hitomi looks like one at first, but she eventually [[AvertedTrope averts]] ''and'' [[SubvertedTrope subverts]] it at the same time. Look under her profile to see what we mean.
* ReplacementScrappy: Mandla is treated as one by Sean, since Mandla is unproven in battle.
* RomanticPlotTumor: Averted, thankfully, in the main 'verse, where Sean and Maria's relationship is only touched on in two chapters, while Arquen and Eruvanda's romance is important, but doesn't take over their plot. ''SIU'', however, might be zig-zagged, because there Sean and Maria's relationship takes over two chapters, but isn't touched on until the most recent one.
* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: Sure, the discussion of racism in chapter 11 is {{Anvilicious}}, but Daisuke's eventual split from the team is a good examination of {{Pride}} and shows that putting oneself ahead of the team can be disastrous.
** The message of [[spoiler: Arquen and Eruvanda's RedemptionQuest]] is "If you want forgiveness, forgive yourself first" and is reiterated several times. [[spoiler: Eventually, they are able to do so]]. There's also another message, and that's "Take responsibility for your actions".
** In the form of Ragnar and his use of rhetoric very similar to that of UsefulNotes/OsamaBinLaden, it shows the potential danger of the WellIntentionedExtremist / KnightTemplar.
** ARealManIsAKiller? Hardly.
** And of course, WarIsHell.
* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids
* TheWoobie: Queen Eruvanda II. Boy, howdy. She's a lonely, depressed wreck, possibly suffering from separation anxiety, TheWomanWearingTheQueenlyMask, which is mostly unheard of for a ''Power Rangers'' villainess. In fact, she easily slides into AntiVillain territory. [[spoiler: Until she defects and goes through a HeelFaceTurn, that is, but the woobieness still stands.]]
** IronWoobie: The Rangers. They've been beat up, spat on, Curb Stomped, hated, criticized, could have died, and yet they ''still'' won't give up, so long as the job gets done.
* WordOfGod: [=GPX=] is short for "Grand Prix".
** WordOfGay: [[spoiler: A post on the author's [[http://dchan87.tumblr.com/post/114274430652/power-rangers-gpx-sexual-orientations tumblr page]] lists the characters' sexualities. Not only is Maria bi, but so are Hitomi and Gina.]]
* WriteWhatYouKnow: In ''SIU'', very much. The author is an [=SIU=] alum and goes into great detail about the campus and town, as he himself would have memorized the campus layout.
