** Contestants on Galaxy Warriors aren't evil monsters in the same way monsters are in other series like say...Dino Charge. The way they work is more akin to something like PowerRangersSPD. They aren't lackeys. They're mercenaries invited to participate in a competition just like on other reality tv shows. She can't ask for the medallions because it's their property. They'd object and straight up leave. She needed an excuse to take them for herself instead of getting bad press for stealing weapons each contestant needed.

* How does Kat still have her Turbo powers? Didn't she transfer her powers to Cassie? And on that note, how does Rocky still have his Red Ranger powers? It makes sense as to why Jason would still have his, since he just transferred his powers and didn't lose them, but Rocky and the other rangers' powers were destroyed in the ''Mighty Morphin''' finale, so what happened?


* Why did Odius claim Wolvermean was dead in ''Caught Red-Handed'' when he was clearly alive, even in the same scene while Galaxy Warriors was airing to introduce Rygore. Also, if she's the leader of the villain faction, why couldn't just order the Galactic Ninjas or ask them to give her the Medallions so she could power-up Foxatron? If the answer was she needed that time to complete the designs, sure, but considering she just weaved four Foxbots together with the Medallions, one would pretty sure she could've done that as early as Attack of the Galactic Ninjas.

*** The spell book was a gift from Princess Viera and came made that way. Maybe the additional pages could be for Preston to take notes about his progress or if he accidentally learned a spell.

** Since Preston gained the ability to actually use magic in just a span of a year, he probably has his spell book prepared in advance. A seasoned warrior would need extra equipment when the need arises, and Preston would need a thick spell book to store his future magic spells as he learns from each battle.

** The principal mentions that the teacher that Mick is mistaken for had turned down the job or changed his mind about working there, she just assumes that he simply changed his mind again. Though there is still the issue that it seems like no one has checked that Mick isn't supposed to be the shop teacher.

** The burger morpher ultimately shows up in the show multiple times as part of the Gold Ranger's finisher, but only when using Sentai footage.



** People seem to give food to make the cookies into while paying said cookies so... I call Jossed.

* Mick wandering into school and being assumed to be the new shop teacher is a big stretch, even by this show's standards. Teachers go through a lot of screening and orientation when being signed into a new school district. Most importantly, the guy who was ''hired'' has to come to class at ''some'' point.

**Brody tends to be the one referring to his father as the greatest ninja and having great memories of him made him just that in his heart. Sappy but it's often the truth in television.



* Sarah gives Billy the cookie-making machine so that he can sell the cookies and buy food for him and his sister instead of stealing. Okay...but where is he going to get the food to make the cookies with in the first place?

**In regards to high school, there are policies in place when it comes to students with a celebrity status and ensure that they're not given special treatment. Of course, from a writer's perspective, the constant fame would be a bit of a hamper with certain storylines.

* Now that Levi is a part of the team, he hangs around in the school too. How come nobody noticed it? Even if he's currently on a break, a celebrity-level singer should at least turn a few heads around. Even both Mr. Tien (Preston's dad) and Monty treated him no differently than they do the other rangers.

** Marketing. They thought that the burger was a bit too hokey and the stereotype American of loving hamburgers isn't exactly flattering. It also clashes with the overall theme the rest of the team has, and doesn't exactly fit with Levi's cowboy/country singer theme. Starninger was an amalgam of every American trope the writers could think of - cowboy, rock star, ''and'' surfer who love cheeseburgers. By giving him a morpher similar to the one used by the rest of the team and change him to a ''country'' singer, they eliminate some of the cruft and give him a more focused theme. Plus, Bandai (as is usually the case) made the argument that as funny as it might be to older fans, kids would probably think it's just weird. The possibility of a burger morpher toy has been discussed, though.

Added DiffLines:

** I would think being known as "Earth's Greatest Ninja" means you fail at stealth and thus aren't a very good ninja...


** ''Go-Busters'' was skipped because ''Bandai'' said the toys were not viable for the US market. They said the same thing for ''Zyuoger''; basically, stacking blocks to form a Megazord seems a lot like a preschool-age toy. ''[=ToQger=]'' did well in Japan because trainspotting is the number one hobby in the country, but rail fans in the US are mainly modelers and in general more niche. While it may have done well enough, trains aren't "cool" the way that dinosaurs and ninjas are. As for ''Thomas the Tank Engine'', that series is aimed at the preschool age bracket while ''Power Rangers'' is more for elementary/middle school kids.



** This is likely referencing a report by Collider that was picked up by varios media. It was one of a few reports about Power Rangers that was belived to contain false information. It's belived Colider was passed false information by a discruntled forum member posing as a reliable source.
*** Its possible these reports by Colider coukd be outdated information and contain some truth.
* So if Redbot doesn't turn into the Red Ranger's zord after all, why ''do'' they look so much alike? Just a coincidence?

** It seems like the Zords forms were based vaguely on something each ranger values. Redbot is Brody's best friend, Preston likes magic (including dressing up like a dragon), Calvin likes his truck, Hayley likes her dog and Sarah likes her hover board. At the very least, it seems to be implied by the rangers naming the zords themselves. If Redbot isn't related to the zord, my money is on him being the basis for the battlizer.

** Basically, the show is written with FleetingDemographicRule in mind to prevent ContinuityLockout for the new batch of elementary school students coming in to the franchise every year. Two seasons means the kids just old enough to watch during ''Super Whatever Force'' will be curious enough to buy the first season when they realize they've missed something.



* Why'd they drop the Gold Ranger's burger morpher? I can buy why they changed the Gold Samurai Ranger's morpher (he sells fish, not sushi), but Levi is established to be part of a genre of music that's very American (country), and Star Ninger was made to be as American as possible - why not just embrace that aspect?

** He said he'd gone off for some time alone to work on the songs for his latest album (something he apparently does with all of them). He probably has a permanent "Do not disturb" rule for when he's on these retreats, and even his manager won't break it.
