* AccidentalInnuendo: "We're here to toss your salad!"
* AnticlimaxBoss: Maligore. An ancient god of evil...who gets exploded with one non-powered slash.
* {{Asspull}}: The "transition" (term used ''very'' loosely) between ''Series/PowerRangersZeo'' and this series.
* BrokenBase: Some people still claim this is the worst season even though arguably, there have been worse seasons since (Operation Overdrive and Wild Force in particular are often seen as having taken the Worst Season Title). Some people agree that while the first half was pretty bad the second half was an improvement. Others believed the first half was bad but the second half was even worse for changing the entire cast save Justin (who was decidedly unpopular). However, most can agree that the first 19 or so episodes of Turbo weren't Power Rangers' best.
* EnsembleDarkhorse:
** In real life, Blake Foster, who played Justin, is known to be a pretty nice guy and doesn't regret his time on Power Rangers. As he put it in a convention appearance, "Who ''didn't'' want to be a Power Ranger?" He also kept his Blue Ranger costume and helmet.
** In show, Phantom Ranger, due to how frickin' mysterious he is. So much so, that Phantom got to the final round of the Morphin' Madness fan contest.
* EvilIsSexy: Divatox, for some.
* GrowingTheBeard: The additions of T.J., Cassie, Ashley, and Carlos on-screen, with Judd Lynn taking over writing duties more-or-less concurrently. The new characters and more consistent writing gave new life to an otherwise moribund series. (As noted below, after these changes, the ratings saw noteworthy improvement.) Looking back, the second half of ''Turbo'' gets a far more favorable reception than the first half.
** While ''Series/PowerRangersInSpace'' is given credit to being this for the franchise as a whole, arguably the second half of Power Rangers Turbo laid the groundwork.
* HoYay: Carlos with T.J, Justin with Nico. Cassie and Ashley also got some LesYay in.
* ItGetsBetter: The second half when the new Ranger come in is huge improvement over the first half. To the point many fans makes a distinction between the two halves rather than consider them a single series.
* {{Irony}}: This season starts the trend ''Power Rangers'' has where anniversary and milestone seasons have a bad reputation (''Turbo''- 5th season. [[Series/PowerRangersWildForce Wild Force]]- 10th season and first Disney season. [[Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive Overdrive]]- 15th season. [[Series/PowerRangersSamurai Samurai]]- Saban's return to the franchise. [[Series/PowerRangersMegaforce Megaforce]]-20th season). Why this seems happen to anniversary or milestone seasons is beyond us, so of course jokes about anniversary/milestone curses are bound to pop up. These seasons are either considered divisive and/or "Man, how unfortunate, they had a lot of potential..." (''Turbo'' and ''Wild Force'' come to mind), ''or'' they are just considered outright TERRIBLE (*ahem* ''Overdrive'' and ''Megaforce'').
* MemeticMutation: They were baked into a giant pizza. This is among the most remembered parts of the season.
** To the point of being brought up in "Forever Red".
** [[ARareSentence "The evil pizzas were no match for a simple stoplight."]] Pretty much anything the Blue Senturion said in that episode qualifies.
* NeverLiveItDown: Getting baked into a giant pizza. Though in the team-up "[[Series/PowerRangersWildForce Forever Red]]", T.J. did kind of take it in stride, bringing it up in a bit of SelfDeprecation humour, much to the chagrin of the other Red Rangers (except for Cole, who was quite curious to hear the tale) who are implied to have heard T.J. telling them the tale so many times already. By [[PlayedForLaughs playing this for laughs]], it's highly likely that the writers and producers did feel a little badly for having the infamous pizza episode; and so, through T.J., they wanted to make up for it and poke fun at themselves for it.
** Fans are quick to criticize T.J. for losing the Megazords in "Chase into Space, Part 1," even though he only purposely sacrificed one (which had been severely damaged and on the brink of destruction anyways) and legitimately lost the other in the battle. (It's more glaring when you take into account that [[DoubleStandard Tommy gets less criticism for losing far more Zords during his leadership tenure]].)
* ReplacementScrappy: More or less averted since its generally considered when the new team took over the writing improved. Though there is still a vocal minority that hates the team simply for replacing Fan Favorites Tommy and Adam, though even then most of the detractors learn to like the new team by ''Series/PowerRangersInSpace''. Not because the characters changed mind you, simply because that season was more well received.
** And it didn't help at all when we learned the producers didn't even have the decency to tell their long-time stars that they'd been fired, and they had to hear about it through gossip from the hair and makeup people.
* TheScrappy: Too many, which is why this series is disliked.
** Justin, who had shades of the CreatorsPet. But a lot of it comes mostly from ''concept'' rather than execution. He was a young kid compared to the older Rangers and no matter how hard Blake Foster tried he always stuck out among the group. But as a character he was fairly well rounded: skilled and observant but with moments of jealousy, pride and short-sightedness.
** Alpha 6, also of ''Turbo'', could qualify. While Alpha 5 was dorky-but-lovable, Alpha 6 was an attempt to make Alpha cool by using [[JiveTurkey forced-hip slang]] ("Yo, Rangers!"). It's no coincidence that as ''Turbo'' ended, he was damaged, and his voice chip needed to be [[TheOtherDarrin replaced with one of Alpha 5's]].
** Dimitria, both for [[ReplacementScrappy replacing Zordon]] and [[FigureItOutYourself being limited to interrogative statements]] for the first half of the series.
** Elgar, mainly for being obnoxious and not remotely threatening.
** Divatox is this due to being a comedic villain and the fandom's general aversion to funny villains for some reason. She also likes to set explosions all over the place and ALWAYS setting them for an hour, enough time for the Rangers to get rid of them!
** There are many fans who dislike Ashley simply because of her actress, Tracy Lynn Cruz. She had dated JohnnyYongBosch and in an interview years later he said once she got on ''Turbo'' she dumped him, stole his money and his car. Johnny (and Adam) was already TheWoobie to fans and some people paint Tracy as evil, saying that she "eats the skulls of babies to survive". Johnny appears to regret letting out that information, due to how bad the backlash got.
** [[UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom The Blue Senturion]] isn't very popular either. The [[EpilepticTrees fan theory]] that he was, in fact, responsible for the events of ''Series/PowerRangersRPM'' didn't help; though that was eventually {{Jossed}} by [[Series/PowerRangersSamurai "Clash of the Red Rangers"]].
** T.J. and Carlos aren't hated, and they are actually likeable characters. But the fact that they replace Tommy and Adam doesn't please many fans at first. But at least, they do grow into good characters on their own rights.
* StockFootageFailure: Several members of Divatox's supporting players were redesigned to be much less sinister looking, making spotting the ''Carranger'' footage pretty obvious. [[http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20101218134042/powerrangers/images/f/fc/Elgar.jpg Especially]] [[http://www.rovang.org/wiki/elgar-sentai.jpg Elgar.]]
* VillainDecay: Divatox was competent enough in the movie. In the show? Not so much.
** Finally inverted at the end when she led an army to the power chamber and utterly destroyed it, and she probably would have killed the rangers (once she discovered they survived) if she hadn't been summoned away
* VindicatedByHistory: Sort of, because it still has a wide spread Hatedom among some people still wearing NostalgiaGoggles who just remember it as "the season that got rid of Tommy and Adam". Other than that, however, the reception was a lot warmer in the second half of the season than when it first aired, helped by the fact that the writing actually improved and that there has been [[Series/PowerRangersWildForce arguably]] [[Series/PowerRangersOperationOverDrive worse]] [[Series/PowerRangersSamurai seasons]].
** Again, it didn't really help matters when the source material it was based on was actually a self-parody of the ''Sentai'' series, so when they tried to make it more "serious", of course they would run into a lot of problems (with the pizza-episode being the most infamous one). Eventually, they managed to work around the source material half-way through the season; but who knows how the series ''[[WhatCouldHaveBeen could]]'' have turned out if they had just taken the risk in the first place of poking fun at themselves (in a [[AffectionateParody lighthearted]] sort of way), writing the slapstick and the comedic/satirical elements in a way so that it is taylored for an American youth audience, and not taking themselves too seriously...
