Shout Out / Power Rangers: Guardians of Gaia

Go To

The writer, J.A. Phillips, has a bit of a love for referential humour. As such, a LOT of it is tossed about in this story, at least once per chapter, along with callbacks to various seasons of Power Rangers.

Chapter 01

  • "What are you even doing, playing WoW?!"
  • "Didn't anyone ever tell you not to kick a lady there?! Especially not a lady who beats suckers on Halo for a hobby!"

Chapter 02

  • A number of different callbacks to Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers are established this chapter, from the Viewing Globe, to the team's mentor being a wizard, to calls such as "It's Morphin' Time!", "Make my monster grow!", and "We need ____ Zord power, now!"

Chapter 03

Chapter 04


Chapter 05

  • Man, look at her, acting all awesome by keeping a constant vigil over Gaia, like she was Batman or something.

Chapter 06

Chapter 07

Chapter 08

  • The Rangers end up having a battle with Blots in a quarry for seemingly no reason other than every season of Power Rangers must have a quarry battle.


Chapter 09

Chapter 10

Chapter 11

Chapter 12

Chapter 13

Chapter 14

Chapter 15

Chapter 16

Chapter 17

  • None. Which may seem bizarre, since a lot of the plot centers around Madilyn, but there's a reason there's less humour: IT'S SAD AS ALL HECK.

Chapter 18

Chapter 19

  • The entire chapter is one big tribute/Mythology Gag to Super Sentai, and even has a less-than-subtle friendly jab at TV-Nihon's subbing peeves.
    • There are even direct references to past Sentai Ranger catchphases, such as "Maitaze" and "Hade ni ikuze".

How well does it match the trope?
