** The show never explores the origins of the Nexus Prism, despite it being the source of the Rangers' powers.

** The show never explores the origins or nature of the Nexus Prism, despite it being the source of the Rangers' powers.powers. Mick keeps mentioning it being legendary throughout the universe, but other than "the legend says it could do that" every time it does something new or gives the Rangers another zord, it really doesn't come up.



** Given the positive response that ''Dino Charge'' had, it is inevitable in addition to being the first ninja-themed series since ''Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm''.

** His behavior in the episode "Doom Signal" is where this trope fits the most. We're supposed to feel sorry for Calvin after Hayley scolded him for his BrutalHonesty towards her performance and whilst Hayley may not have been completely innocent in this situation herself since she ''did'' ask for his honest opinion, it was ultimately Calvin's fault for showing up late, forgetting to bring in the props (resulting in her audition being unimpressive) and brushing off her feelings entirely which caused them to break up. However, the episode suggests that we're meant to side with Calvin (over Hayley) when Sarah informs Hayley that ''she's'' the one who needed to apologize to Calvin after she rightfully scolded him for coming off as uncaring, telling her that she overreacted with Calvin's honesty but hardly acknowledged Hayley's side of the story.

** Sarah: Sarah started off very likable, but her lack of personality caused her to drop off with the fanbase, and her detractors view her as a character the writers just force into any situation. Others find her scientific nature interesting, the dynamic with her mother a major fix to her character, and potential relationship with Preston nice and love the shots that focus on her body, particularly her bum.

* CompleteMonster: [[MultiversalConqueror Lord Draven]], from "[[Recap/PowerRangersNinjaSteelS02E10DimensionsInDanger Dimensions in Danger]]", is the evil ruler of the Antiverse, who seeks to conquer the multiverse and subject it to his will, killing any who don't comply. Lord Draven joins forces with [[DragonAscendant Madame Odius]] to get three Mega Arrows that could destroy the barriers that separate the dimensions and then plans to use an armada of Robo Rangers to conquer them. These Robo Rangers are created from cloning a Ranger by forcibly hooking them up to a Ranger Cloning Computer. In order to capture them, Lord Draven has Tommy Oliver replaced with a robot, and then uses robot Tommy to trick the Rangers into a trap, managing to capture seven Rangers and making an army of clones. When the Ninja Steel Rangers stand in his way, Lord Draven tries to destroy them repeatedly, at one point ordering their Dragonzord shot out of the sky. Lord Draven successfully manages to launch two Mega Arrows weakening the barriers, and fires the third one off even after his army is destroyed. Finally, Lord Draven tries to kill the combined forces of all the Rangers after Tommy stops his last arrow.

*** T.J. implies that he had some sort of history with Drayvon, but he never expands upon this.

* EarWorm: As usual for a ''Power Rangers'' series, the theme song. The "Go Go Power Rangers" remix is still present, but like ''Dino Charge'' it is downplayed.

Added DiffLines:

* JerkassWoobie: Ripcon may be a jerk and rival to Brody, but is still being treated as a ButtMonkey by Galvanax and Madame Odious and he definitely did not deserve to be framed by the latter for treacherous acts that she committed.


* MoralEventHorizon:
** Galvanax crossed it prior to the main story when he kidnapped Brody and took him in as a slave for 10 years.
** Madame Odius crossed it when she framed Ripcon for sending a robot with Aiden's memories to try and steal the Rangers' Power Stars, inciting Ripcon's death.

Added DiffLines:

** A general theory is that Summer Cove High School is actually a privately funded tech school as opposed to a public school, due to certain aspects (theater and the arts) appearing more shoehorned in as opposed to being naturally part of the school, the expansive shop class, multiple science classes, and Redbot walking around being treated as a case of UnusuallyUninterestingSight from the general school, not to mention that Preston (whose father is ultra-rich) is shown to care more about magic than tech, suggesting that his father bought his son's way in to the school if it was private.

Added DiffLines:

* HoYay: Pretty much all the guys get paired up with each other, even Calvin who has an in-show girlfriend. It's not helped, or made better depending on how you see it, by the cast releasing videos of themselves hugging each other or being really close. Considering that Peter (who plays Preston) is a BigNameFan, he most likely knows about the shipping side of the fandom or was given the heads up from his brother and gets the others to play along to mess with the fans.
** Calvin/Preston is gaining a bit of traction because their actors (Nico and Peter) keep posting videos of themselves hugging and talking flirtatiously and mentioning their pairing name: [[PortmanteauCoupleName Calston]].
** Brody/Levi has some grounds too. In addition to being the traditional Red/Sixth ship, Levi's first episode has him paying Brody to hang out with him and eat lunch with him. So, basically a date.
*** The reveal [[spoiler:that Levi is actually Brody's missing brother Aiden]] caused people to [[AbandonShipping quickly drop]] the pairing.


** Viera: An interesting new addition to the Ninja Steel characters to some fans and a potential candidate for the Green Ranger (that many hope will get adapted), a bland character with poor acting to others. There are also those that don't mind her, but have a problem with her HeelFaceTurn occurring too quickly for one episode.
