* DissonantSerenity: [[CuteandPsycho Gem and Gemma]] are always upbeat, or at least always smiling, even when talking about horrific things. Case in point: when Scott asks them how they can be sure that Venjix uses human prisoners to build grinders, they simply reply that ''they themselves'' used to be such prisoners- still smiling.
---> '''Gem''': We were forced to work-
--->'''Gemma''':-unbearable hours under-
--->'''Gem''':-unspeakably brutal conditions. *cheerful smile*

--->'''Dr. K''': What just happened was that I uploaded the base code for the Venjix virus. I know it because I wrote it. I'm the one who released it. Everything that's happened, everything you've all been through, it's all my fault.

Added DiffLines:

* {{BFG}}: For the core three, the Road Blaster; Dillon and Ziggy have the Turbo Plasma Launcher, which combines with the Road Blaster to create the RPM Enforcer. Gem and Gemma combine their Cloud Hatchets with their Sky Shift Morphers to form the Sky Shift Blazers (which are more in the territory of HandCannon given their size).


''RPM'' would later have a team up with ''Samurai'' called ''Clash of the Red Rangers.'' Only Scott appears, and even then he doesn't demorph for the entire movie. The [[Series/PowerRangersMegaforce Super Mega Rangers]] visited Corinth in the second half of ''Super Megaforce,'' but looked completely different due to using ''[[Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger Gokaiger]]'' footage. Eventually, ''RPM'' would have a more proper team-up in the ''Series/PowerRangersNinjaSteel'' [[MilestoneCelebration 25th Anniversary]] {{crossover}} episode "Dimensions in Danger," with Gemma making an appearance for the RPM Universe.

* GrandFinale: ''R.P.M.'' served as the last hurrah for the Disney-era ''Power Rangers'', as Saban ended up re-acquiring the rights to the series in 2010.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalNonsapience: The [[MechanicalLifeform Partner Engines]] that are on par with humans in intellect from ''Go-onger'' are adapted into the nonsentient Zord Attack Vehicles that Dr. K made.

Added DiffLines:

* Artistic License - Military: Two items.
** The military leader is consistently addressed as "Colonel", yet his rank insignia is one star, which is a General's insignia.
** In "Ranger Red", the Truman brothers are in their flight suits, on the base, doing flights sim training. Yet they have no insignia on their flight suits, which is valid uniform, and while on duty.


With its AfterTheEnd premise, the time setting of this season was ambiguous until these crossovers established that it took place in a parallel universe to the one most ''Power Rangers'' seasons take place in.

* NeverSayDie: Averted in "Ranger Blue". Shockingly...
-->'''Penny:''' Are we going to die?
-->'''Flynn:''' Not today.
** And in an earlier Film/{{Braveheart}}-inspired flashback, in which Flynn leads a village of aboriginals into battle against genocidal raiders in a third-world country(!):
--->'''Flynn:''' It's a good day to die, eh boys?
** But played straight wherever Fresno Bob and the mob is concerned - "ghosted" is the euphemism of choice.
*** And played even straighter [[spoiler:in the finale when Gem and Gemma are [[DisneyDeath "lost"]]...which is further explained as them being "gone." Similarly, Scott's brother "didn't make it." Apparently you can only say die when the people in question don't actually die.]]

* BadassGrandpa: The old man in episode 20. He's not only able to get several refugees to escape, but he used to be a soldier and takes down 3 Grinders with their own gun.

* FriendshipMoment: Granted there tend to be lot of these in ''Franchise/PowerRangers'', but special mention goes to Ziggy saving Dillon in ''Blitz''. This is a character who, at the start of the season, wouldn't help anyone if it involved any risk to himself. In this episode, Dillon is thrown from a building. Without a second's hesitation, [[CrowningmomentOfAwesome Ziggy leaps off the building, morphs in midair, catches Dillon and teleports them down to the ground before they build up too much velocity.]]

* SoundtrackDissonance: Dr. K plays an excerpt from [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OHrZAplckpI Paganini's Caprice No.24 in A Minor]]. This excerpt plays out [[http://youtu.be/GebSvFmNnAk?t=8m57s during a Megazord battle]] in the very next scene. ItMakesSenseInContext. This also falls under CrowningMusicOfAwesome.

** What makes it even funnier is that Dr. K doesn't get the sarcasm coming from the Rangers. She says, "No, no, I'm afraid it's true." All part of a CrowningMomentOfFunny.
