Fridge / Power Rangers Time Force

Go To

  • Fridge Brilliance: In "Reinforcements from the Future", one scene has Ransik (the villain of Power Rangers: Time Force) interrupting a powerful incantation by three Mutant-Orgs to try to defeat them. It doesn't completely work, but it has the side effect of nullifying the Mut-Orgs' mutant powers. Guess what happens to the half-mutant, half-human Ransik later?
    • In the season finale, Ransik is shown the error of his ways by his daughter Nadira and her newfound love for humankind. It's Trip who, accidentally or not, shows her not all humans are evil in the first place. In a way, it's Trip, the Innocent Alien who believed he wasn't as good as his Ranger peers, who was the first to trust Nadira despite her betraying him before, who saved the fate of the world as we know it.

  • The Quantum Ranger suit is a near-exact match for the Red Ranger suit, an oddity in terms of Sixth Ranger designs which typically look much different from the main team while keeping a few stylistic similarities. When Circuit talks about the Q-Rex, he mentions that it was one of the first experiments in time travel. The Quantum Ranger powers were likely the first developed by Time Force and therefore served as a test-bed/prototype that the other Morphers were built from, starting with the Red Ranger.

  • Fridge Horror: The mutants are supposed to be frozen, some of them for life sentences. One of them mentions that he has had two years to think while frozen. Just imagine a what a longer sentence would do.
    • This and the fact that, either way, the mutants they fight are citizens and not any kind of inherently evil force are likely why this is a strictly no killing season.
    • There's also the fact that, as kindly pointed out by Linkara, the Mutants are probably human beings with hideous mutations. (Thanks Linkara)

  • Fridge Logic: If Alex is Wes's descendant, then why does he not seem to care about his supposedly inevitable death in the finale? Wouldn't that erase him from existence?
    • It's implied Alex isn't a direct descendant of Wes. Rather, he's descended from a relative of Wes (a cousin or something along those lines).
    • Some of us like to speculate that Alex is Wes' clone rather than his descendant, so Wes wouldn't have to survive, just be around long enough for Time Force to collect his DNA.
    • He wouldn't even need that - so long as Time Force, able to travel through time, exists, they could collect his DNA at any point. In true paradoxical form, they could even approach him after he became a Power Ranger and saved the world, but be doing this before the other Time Force Rangers in the future went back in time and oh I've gone cross-eyed.

  • Fridge Logic: Apparently they can’t sent reinforcements to the past because the timeship is destroyed. However, they’re sending the Megazord components back in time every episode, each of which has a seat in it.
    • Considering that the morphers are genetically encoded, it doesn't seem like much of a stretch to assume that the same applies for the zords in the sense that only the Rangers themselves could use the zords safely; at best they won't work if anyone but the assigned Ranger tried to use them, and at worst... well, probably best not to speculate.


How well does it match the trope?
