** Episode 12 has [[TheDragon Mason]] abduct townsfolk and replace them with [[{{Mooks}} Mecha Clone]] duplicates. In particular, he decides to use these duplicates to play with one of the heroes' emotions by making him think he committed murder.\\
'''You'd Expect''': Mason to dispose of the citizens once he's copied them. With no real people, it'd be harder to prove that the "victim" was fake.\\


'''You'd Expect''': Shingo to trust his eyes (which saw the Mechaclones explode) or his [[XRayVision Super Electron Scope]] (which saw through their disguises, and a skill he used before and after this episode to expose more Mechaclones) and tell the kid it was a robot and assure him he'll get his father back.\\

** Episode 32 sees Oyobu and Baraba test out their latest MonsterOfTheWeek's forehead PowerCrystal, which produces a destructive laser when used in tandem with Baraba's new sword, out in a field. Suddenly, along comes Kenta driving a beaten-down old car ([[ItMakesSenseInContext Long story]]). The villains don't want to be seen, so...\\
'''You'd Expect:''' The villains hide under a rock or teleport out of there.\\
'''Instead:''' Baraba and Oyobu actually hide under a rock, but the monster just plops down where it is. [[note]]Why Oyobu and Baraba don't drag it with them is a mystery. [[/note]] Kenta accidentally drives over the monster, which causes the jewel to pop out and land in Kenta's backseat. Thus, beginning an episode-long chase as Oyobu runs after Kenta to get it back.

Added DiffLines:

** In the same episode, Shingo gets into a fight with a group of Mecha Clones and destroys them all. The kid of the week, whose father's mechaclone duplicate was part of that group, mistakes it for his real father and accuses Shingo of being a murderer.\\

'''Instead''': Shingo actually believes he killed a human being and gets a HeroicBSOD until [[TheLeader Shirou]] gives him a pep talk.


** Episode 8's MonsterOfTheWeek [[HumanPopsicle deep freezes]] [[TheLeader Takeru]], [[TheLancer Kenta]] and [[ActionGirl Haruka]]. The only cure is a magic flower, the Maria Rose. [[TheDragon Igam]] uses the flower to set up an ambush for [[KidAppealCharacter Akira]] and [[TheChick Momoko]]. [[{{Mooks}} Ungler Soldiers]] overwhelm the heroes, while the "flower" left out in the open is a fake.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Igam to have the monster deep freeze the heroes. For added points, Igam could [[SubvertedTrope "admit"]] [[ILied the flower was a lie.]]\\

He challenges the Zyurangers to one such contest during his fight with Daizyuzin. [[TheLeader Geki]] goads him into asking the Rangers what his [[AttackItsWeakpoint weakpoint]] is.\\

'''You'd Expect:''' The elderly gents, surely aware of the Zyurangers [[FriendToAllChildren affinity for children]], would at least give them a bare-bones explanation why getting Burai up is a bad thing. They'd at least count on the Zyurangers to try to persuade Ryota not to wake him up.\\

'''You'd Expect''': [[VillainExitStageLeft Teleport out of there]], call some [[{{Mooks}} Zorima]], anything but what he actually does.\\
'''Instead''': He uses two of his own slips to mess with the Kyoryugers. His [[HoistByHisOwnPetard own curse weakens him]], which hastens his defeat.

** In Episode 17, the Zyurangers meet Ryota, a young fairy who seeks to unlock the [[SixthRanger sixth Zyuranger, Burai]], from stasis. Burai is Geki's older brother and wants to [[CainAndAbel try to kill him]] (and by extension, the other Zyurangers) the moment he gets up. Ryota doesn't know this, but his grandfather, Gnome, and the Zyuranger's mentor Barza do.\\

'''Instead:''' Barza and Gnome flat out try to kill Ryota and leave the Zyurangers in the dark as to why. Naturally, the Zyurangers come to Ryota's defense, and he eventually releases Burai, who promptly beats up the Zyurangers once he gets up.
