* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic:
** The fantasy style background music is pretty damn cool.
** The theme song itself, while not the best, has some ''sweet'' violins one can hear during the credits (Or during Xander's fight during Once A Ranger).
** And, as well, Ron Wasserman's two submitted theme songs, in particular the Rock Mix.
* BaseBreakingCharacter:
** Nick. Either an OK Red who has issues with confronting problems (Namely, fans criticize that Nick runs away from all of his problems and frequently gives up), or an unlikable [[TheChosenOne "chosen one"]] character who gets undue focus at the expense of the other Rangers.
** Koragg. Either a legitimately interesting villain, a TokenGoodTeammate, or a poor man's [[Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy Villamax]], whose honor does not work as he works with evil forces with no shades of grey?
** While Xander is still one of the most popular characters in the season, several fans have pointed out how he has AesopAmnesia (In that he learns three times to stop being an arrogant jerk, but it never catches on)l
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Piggy's appearance is a textbook example.
* BrokenBase: The theme song which people either find it to be okay, or hate the hip-hop like direction it took.
* CompleteMonster: TheMaster, whose [[AllThereInTheManual real name]] is [[KnightOfCerebus Octomus]], is a [[EldritchAbomination demonic entity]] intent on [[OmnicidalManiac destroying everything good]]. Prior to the start of the series he brainwashed Leanbow into becoming his loyal servant [[BrainwashedAndCrazy Koragg]]. Once he [[SealedEvilInACan emerges]], he possesses a follower who had turned good and was trying to prevent his rebirth and [[BodyHorror mutates his body into his own twisted image]]; he then [[DemonicPossession possesses Leanbow's son Nick directly]], transforming him into a much more sadistic and vicious version of Koragg who laid waste to parts of the forest and Rootcore before he was saved. After being exorcised from Nick, he attacks and destroys the Mystic Mother's palace in a matter of minutes and kills both Leanbow and Daggeron when they investigate the destruction before dropping their corpses down before the Rangers; finally he obliterates time itself, transporting the rangers to the future he plans to create where he's reduced the Earth to a barren, lifeless husk for no apparent reason other than [[ForTheEvulz because he can]].
* CostumePorn: The Mystic Force outfits look ''incredible''.
* CreatorsPet: Nick is seen by some as being this. The final episode takes steps to remove him of this status though, by having him give up instead of trying to fight The Master. Although it quickly steps away of removing him from this when the other rangers say he's their only hope and has "always been the one to hold them together", despite alot of evidence to the contrary.
* CrossoverShip: While not a romantic one, Chip and Dustin from ''Ninja Storm'' are commonly best friends in fandom due to being the nerd of their teams and for being the only male yellow Rangers (Which is commonly lampshaded during fanfics).
* EnsembleDarkhorse:
** Xander, maybe it's the accent, maybe it's the wannabe LoveableRogue vibe his smarminess gives off, maybe it's just the color green. When ''Operation Overdrive'' had a multi-season team-up episode instead of a full two-team crossover, Xander was the one brought in from Mystic Force. He's so much this that they had [[Series/PowerRangersSPD another Green Ranger]] get a promotion to Red Ranger.
** Chip, while less popular, still has a notable fanbase, primarily due to being one of two yellow Western Rangers who's a guy alongside [[Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm Dustin]] (''Super Sentai'' had plenty of yellow males before, but Saban commonly changed them to women when adapting seasons). His boundless enthusiasm, particularly at getting the chance to become a Power Ranger, is also a notable characteristic that helps him stand out from others in the series.
** The trio of Claire, Leelee and Phineas, particularly due to their team-up in "Light Source". [[WebVideo/HistoryOfPowerRangers Linkara]] even noted that they had more effective CharacterDevelopment than the majority of the Rangers themselves.
* FanPreferredCouple: Vida and Chip.
* GeniusBonus: The Manticore Megazord is based on a obscure mythological beast with the body of a lion, a human face, bat wings, and a scorpion tail. The Megazord is lion-based for the most part, but cheating with being part-firebird, has a human-like face like all megazords, grows wings of fire before using it's finishing move, but no tail.
* HilariousInHindsight: Read "Les Yay" one trope down. Then remember that earlier two-parter where [[LesbianVampire Necrolai sired Vida as a vampire]].
** And early on in "Rock Solid", Nick accused Madison of hiding behind her camera, [[OutOfFocus which in a sense would become a recurring problem for her]].
** In contrast to the above, the fact that Nick pretty much owned the series means something different now that [[{{Creator/Nickelodeon}} another Nick]] has acquired ''the franchise''.
** Speaking of the other Nick, it's funnier to see Vida get hit with green slime in "Petrified Xander" considering it's the network's trademark.
** Daggeron says he will train Chip as a knight. In ''Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive'', Chip's actor voiced the Sentinel Knight.
* JerkassWoobie: Leelee.
* [[HoYay Les Yay]]: In the finale, the Rangers see Necrolai as a human, and Vida enthusiastically backs up Xander's assessment that she's hot. Of course, this makes the two-parter where [[LesbianVampire Necrolai sired Vida as a vampire]] HilariousInHindsight.
** There's also some between Leelee and Claire.
* MemeticBadass: Xander. He even has his own [[http://rangerboard.com/showthread.php?t=82283 Chuck Norris facts list]].
* MisBlamed: It might become 'Mys-Nick Force' in the final arc, but there's a large chunk of episodes (sixteen or so) in the middle of the series that focus on everyone ''but'' Nick. Yes, even Madison.
* {{Narm}}:
** '''Fear the mighty Titan Megazord as it stands majestically before its quivering foe and draws its mighty swor'''- is that thing wearing a witch's hat and pointy ''elf'' shoes?
** Hey, Xander unlocked a new spell code! I wonder what awesome magical power they'll get this ti-...''[[RedBoxingGloves boxing gloves?!]]''
* MemeticMutation: "Who's [[OutOfFocus Madison]]?" A common complaint is that Nick's bike got more focus than she did.
* SoOkayItsAverage: While not as hated as its successor ''Operation Overdrive'', it's also not as loved as its predecessor ''SPD''. Kind of fitting it's between those seasons.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: The other four rangers don't get much development because of Nick's importance to the plot.
** If Disney gave them 38 episodes instead of 32, we would have gotten a proper introduction to the Mystic Mother (and maybe explain how Rita had gotten that position), who only showed up in the 2-part finale.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: They didn't adapt several good parts of Series/{{Ma|houSentaiMagiranger}}giranger such as [[TearJerker episode 28]] and [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome the use of the Dial Rod Bowgun to destroy Oculous/Cyclops]] just to introduce the Battlizer and giving even more importance to Nick. Those examples would give Chip more deserved character development.
** They could have shown how Phineas was treated by the goblins and trolls, following his part in the final battle.
* ToughActToFollow: Had to follow the well received ''Series/PowerRangersSPD'', which in itself followed the more well received ''Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder''
* UglyCute: Phineas.
* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Nick. The gist of what happens to him: [[spoiler: He was separated from his parents as a baby, drifting through random relatives in his adopted family, never had time to settle down and make friends, discovers his mother was the sorceress who mentored him in magic, learned his archenemy is his brainwashed father, and discovers it's his destiny to defeat the Master of the Underworld]]. If it were any other Red Ranger, this would work. Unfortunately, Nick is very unfriendly, brooding and is usually the first to just give up when things start to fall apart, and yet he's supposed to be the glue that holds the Rangers together. His cold response to Leelee, who was trying to reform, was so cruel that even the other Rangers, who didn't even like her, felt he went too far.
** Although the whole team fell into this regarding Leelee in "The Hunter". Given her previous villainy and bitchiness, and the fact that she didn't seem to be wanting to reform for the right reasons, their [[ReformedButRejected distrust of her]] was completely justified...but in this episode, rather than just distrusting and avoiding her, they ''actively'' bully her and make her job more stressful than it needs to be. It's PlayedForLaughs, but Leelee's hurt reaction and the fact that [[DisproportionateRetribution nothing she had even done as a villain warranted this kind of deliberate mistreatment]] made it less funny that intended.
