Works in this series with their own Trivia pages:

The TV series in general

  • Power Rangers beat Super Sentai to the punch at a Kamen Rider crossover, thanks to Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers' Poorly Disguised Pilot story arc for Masked Rider by a long gap. To elaborate: Said MMPR episodes aired in 1995. The Samurai Sentai Shinkenger crossover arc of Kamen Rider Decade aired in 2009, or 14 years later.
  • Power Rangers also had a female Red Ranger before Super Sentai: SPD's A-Squad leader Charlie, to Shiba Kaoru, the female ShinkenRed, a 4-year difference.

  • Ninja and Dino-based seasons have an interesting relationship. Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger and Ninja Sentai Kakuranger - which had dinosaur and ninja motifs respectively - were both adapted into Mighty Morphin. Ninja Storm was immediately succeeded by and had a crossover with Dino Thunder the latter of which saw the return of Tommy Oliver, who was part of MMPR in both its ninja and dino incarnations, as a series regular. Dino Charge was immediately followed by Ninja Steel, a reversal of the Ninja Storm and Dino Thunder situation. Ninja Steel's White Ranger also shares her first name with the Mission Control and tech support character from Dino Thunder.
  • Adored by the Network: British channel Kix. They love the show so much, that their second channel, Kix Power, is named after Power Rangers and for the first six weeks is showing nothing else!

  • Approval of God: Hiroshi Miyauchi, the actor who played Aoranger and Big One is aware that Power Rangers is an adaptation of Super Sentai and has voiced his support, saying that the former’s existence is an extension of the latter’s message about justice, teamwork, and the greater good.
  • Beam Me Up, Scotty!: Zordon never told Alpha to recruit "teenagers with attitude." He asked for "overbearing and overemotional humans." Alpha said, "not that, not teenagers!" The phrase was used in the introduction, but was a way to condense that scene. Became a trope namer.
  • California Doubling: Often. Starting with Ninja Storm it became New Zealand Doubling (for California no less).
    • Briefly Australia Doubling while the movie was being filmed, though most of the episodes filmed there were actually set in Australia.
    • For the 2017 film reboot, Vancouver Doubling.
  • Cast the Runner-Up:
    • Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers:
      • David Yost auditioned for Jason. He decided that he didn't look like a leader (despite being the oldest in the cast) and took the role of Billy.
      • Jason Narvy (Skull) auditioned for Billy.
      • Dan Southworth (Eric Myers on Power Rangers Time Force) stated at Power Morphicon that he had auditioned for the role of Adam during production of the second season. But instead, Johnny Yong Bosch got the role and Dan continued his stunt work. In addition to being Austin St. John's stunt double (morphed), he also acted as a Stunt Double to Johnny (also morphed).
    • Emma Lahana auditioned for Tori Hanson in Power Rangers Ninja Storm. And since she was trying to launch a music career at the same time, one wonders if the character would have been a straight copy of Hurricaneger's Nanami had she gotten the role. She would later play Kira in Power Rangers Dino Thunder.
    • Power Rangers Mystic Force: Firass Dirani and Richard Brancatisano, who played Nick and Xander respectively, actually tried out for the parts of Xander and Nick respectively.
    • Power Rangers Lost Galaxy: Jason Faunt and Rhett Fisher also auditioned for Leo Corbett. They would later be rangers - Rhett became Ryan the Titanium Ranger and Faunt became Wesley Colins.
    • Power Rangers Samurai:
      • Emily was almost played by Ciara Hanna, they even had the contract ready, but she backed out before signing. She would return to play Gia in Power Rangers Megaforce.
      • Spike's actor, Felix Ryan actually tried out for the part of the Gold Ranger.
    • Power Rangers Megaforce: Orion's actor, Cameron Jebo, originally tried out for the part of Troy.
    • In Power Rangers: Beast Morphers, Liana Ramirez initially auditioned for the Yellow Ranger before Jacqueline Scislowski would take the role. She instead got casted as Roxy, which adds irony to her character being the intended Yellow Ranger.
  • The Cast Show Off: Many hobbies and skills of the actors are integrated into their characters:
    • Plenty of expert martial artists are known to have joined the cast, including:
      • Austin St. John (Jason)
      • Thuy Trang (Trini). Not only that, but Trang also earned a scholarship to study civil engineering at the University of California, Irvine, before being approached for the role of Trini.
      • Jason David Frank (Tommy)'s martial arts training also allowed him to preform more risky combat stunts than the other Rangers at times.
      • Johnny Yong Bosch (Adam)
      • Steve Cardenas (Rocky)
      • Michael Chaturantabut (Chad/Blue Lightspeed Ranger)
      • Daniel Southworth (Eric/Quantum Ranger)
    • Amy Jo Johnson (Kimberly) actually had a gymnastics career before joining the cast. David Yost (Billy) was a gymnast as well, and you can tell costuming had a hard time downplaying his athleticism in the early days, before Billy Took a Level in Badass.
    • Nakia Burrise (Tanya), Emma Lahana (Kira) and Steven Skyler (Antonio), the latter a Glee alumnus, all got to showcase their singing.
    • Catherine Sutherland (Kat) and Walter Jones (Zack) had backgrounds in dancing which was incorporated into their characters' fighting styles.
  • Cast the Expert: The show usually seeks out people with martial arts or other athletic backgrounds to start with.
  • Channel Hop:
    • Started on FOX, but when the Fox Kids block died it went over to ABC and Disney's cable channels (but, strangely, not Disney XD when it launched).
    • When Saban's new company got it, they struck a deal to have it aired on Nickelodeon and Nicktoons. Once Saban Brands bought out 4Kids Entertainment's assets, they took advantage of the included CW programming block and scheduled Power Rangers Lost Galaxy as part of the Vortexx launch lineup.
      • And starting with Super Megaforce, Cartoon Network will air the series in Latin America, despite its US broadcasting rights still belonging to Nick. Oddly enough, that is true also in Southeast Asia, where it also airs on CN from Wild Force onwards, when it should have been airing on Disney Channel Asia (during the Disney era) or Nick Southeast Asia (in the Neo Saban era).
    • In the UK, it was on ITV/CITV from MMPR through to RPM, and Channel 5 for Samurai, Super Samurai and Megaforce. It was also on Sky One for the first 145 episodes, then Fox Kids/Jetix from Alien Rangers through to RPM, then Nickelodeon/Nicktoons for Samurai, Super Samurai and Megaforce, then Pop for Super Megaforce. Latterly, Kix airs old episodes - its success there is likely why its sister channel Pop has decided to take over from Nickelodeon as the show's UK home.
    • Power Rangers has the dubious honor of going through the most Hollywood studios out of most any television franchise, going from PolyGram Filmed Entertainment to Warner Bros. (through its WEA/WarnerVision division) (both those companies handled video releases only) to 20th Century Fox to Disney to Lionsgate to Paramount in various different capacities.
    • In Canada, the original Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers aired on Global and YTV, until complaints by the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council yanked the show off Canadian airwaves (Outside of households that had access to a FOX or ABC affiliate). The show would later end up on Family Channel, which aired Lightspeed Rescue and Wild Force, along with the rest of the Disney-produced seasons. When Saban reacquired the franchise and moved it to Nickelodeon, the show returned to YTV with Samurai. But after YTV's parent company, Corus Entertainment, gained 100% control of Teletoon, the show would move to the latter network note  just as Corus acquired new episodes of Super Megaforce.
    • In Italy, Italia 1 aired the series from Mighty Morphin to Lost Galaxy. Lightspeed Rescue and Time Force aired on Fox Kids/Jetix alongside reruns of the older series, then it came back on Italia 1 for Wild Force and Ninja Storm plus Lost Galaxy reruns. Fox Kids/Jetix added these two series to their rerun blocks and got Dino Thunder too, and then Rai 2 aired from SPD to Jungle Fury. Samurai was aired on Italia 1 once again, with K2 airing RPM some time later alongside reruns of Mystic Force and Operation Overdrive, Megaforce and Dino Charge both aired on Boing and Pop got the show's rights in time for the airing of Ninja Steel (plus reruns of Operation Overdrive, Jungle Fury and RPM)
  • Dawson Casting: Quite frequently. The first season had characters in high school played by actors in their early-to-mid-twenties, some of whom did a better job than others. The trope page attempts to show how men are less convincing at this than women, despite Austin being a teenager — he was 17 when they started filming, and was 18 years old when it first aired — when he started playing Jason (although to be exact Austin was actually in his late teens, therefore he was fully mature physically and it showed, which actually contrasted with the age of his character, who was earlier in high school).
    • Jason Chan was already 30 when he played Cam in Ninja Storm— although, to be fair, Cam's age is never specified and it's not uncommon for a Sixth Ranger like himself to be an adult.
    • Phillip Jeanmarie's character, Max, in Wild Force is said to be the youngest member of the team (quite possibly in his senior year in high school). However, it is actually Jessica Rey (Alyssa) who is the youngest of the main Ranger cast; but, with Jeanmarie, you wouldn't be able to tell.
    • The most notable aversion was in Lightspeed Rescue. Rhett Fisher (Ryan/Titanium Ranger) was literally the exact same age as his character, starting off 19 and turning 20 a few episodes in. Interestingly, he's actually 2 months younger than Dana's actress Alison MacInnis despite being the older brother. But since both characters looked their parts (late teens/early 20s) it worked just fine.
  • Executive Meddling: Originally all the villains were suppose to be vaporized by Zordon's wave in countdown (excluding Karone/Astronema of course). Fox Kids' BS&P forbade them to kill off the human villains.
    • This is why Wes and Jen didn't kiss at the end of Time Force. Although it's also why Eric survived.
    • Also in SPD, as far as making the Omega Ranger a ball of light when he wasn't morphed because the producers decided to spend most of the budget creating an all-original Zord/Monster fight for the finale.
    • There seems to be some of this going on since Saban took the rights back. As we understand it, Nickelodeon is making Saban stretch each adaptation out to two seasons, or limiting seasons to 20 episodes as they do with some of their original series thereby forcing Saban to take two years to do a full adaptation. Combined with longstanding contracts with Toei that don't let them skip any Sentai (at least until Dino Charge, where Toei decided to throw this rule out), it becomes kind of frustrating for fans as Rangers keeps falling further behind Sentai.
    • Disney never really appreciated the franchise, having had Power Rangers forced on their laps in order to acquire the Family Channel, Disney considered the entire series an embarrassment, and was always pushing for less violence... in a kids' action show. Continuous budget slashes and always wanting to cancel it, they were more than happy to sell it back to Saban the moment they bought out the gold mine of more evergreen boys' superhero properties.
  • Fake American: From Ninja Storm onward, production took place in New Zealand, with mostly local actors trying their darnedest to pretend they didn't have Kiwi accents. Subverted by Xander in Mystic Force, as Richard Brancatisano didn't even bother hiding his accent and was eventually handwaved as a native Australian that immigrated to the States.
    • However, Jeffery Parazzo (Trent) and Kevin Duhaney (Ethan), from Dino Thunder, actually came all the way from Canada. Regardless, they were obviously able to easily pass for American unlike some of the Kiwi actors.
    • The character of Chase in Dino Charge is a repeat of Xander in this respect, as James Davies is a native New Zealander.
    • In Overdrive, Samuell Benta (Will) and Rhoda Montemayor (Rose) were both British, but each managed to hide their native accents well. Meanwhile, Gareth Yuen (Dax) is Australian but speaks with a subtle Chinese accent, which makes sense due to Yuen being of Chinese descent; his natural Australian accent has slight hints of this as well.
  • Fake Nationality:
    • Although his race is never stated, Antonio from Samurai's last name is Garcia hinting at a Hispanic background, though he could just as easily be Filipino which would be closer to Steven Skyler's Thai/German heritage.
      • Of course there is also the two red rangers that have the last name of Shiba being played by white actors. In this case they are both of Japanese descent. Most likely descended from all Male Shiba's, thus keeping the last name of Shiba despite obviously not looking Japanese.
  • Fan Nickname:
    • The Japanese-recorded action sequences from the end of the first season (Starting with "Something Fishy" and every episode after "Crystal of Nightmares") and the first half of the second season (until "Missing Green", before they began using Dairanger monsters on the show) is dubbed Zyu2 in fan circles, due to the fact that they were recorded specifically for Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and were not from any actual Zyuranger episodes.
    • The fandom groups the various seasons by whichever company held the rights to the series at the time they were produced. Mighty Morphin through Time Force are collectively known as "The Saban Era", Ninja Storm through RPM (and possibly the 2010 Mighty Morphin reversion) are known as "The Disney Era"note , Samurai through Super Ninja Steel are known as "The Neo-Saban Era", and the fandom has already begun referring to Beast Morphers onward as "The Hasbro Era".
  • Fandom Life Cycle: In the odd case of being a 90's pop culture icon that's still ongoing.
    • Power Rangers as a whole is at Stage 6a, far from its glory days.
    • Mighty Morphin by itself is at Stage 5. Anything else within the Zordon Era is Stage 2.
    • Lost Galaxy through RPM can go down to Stage 1.
    • The Neo-Saban Era and the 2017 movie both brought about minor Newbie Booms, with each season of the former managing to be around Stage 2 while it was airing, with the same going for the latter film.
  • Follow the Leader: Many, some of which are Saban's own attempts to repeat the same concept: VR Troopers, Beetleborgs and Masked Rider.
  • Franchise Killer: Not itself directly, but Power Rangers' instant popularity with younger viewers caused major problems for other beloved television shows targeted at older audience demographics, such as Gargoyles, Sonic the Hedgehog (SatAM), ReBoot and Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go!. All were subsequently shafted by ABC and/or Disney, ending egregiously on cliffhangers (though ReBoot, thanks to being Canadian-produced, continued up north, eventually making its way back to US via syndication and later Toonami).
  • Friday Night Death Slot: A variant. Because the series was not an Edutainment Show, many ABC affiliates refused to carry it in its assigned late Saturday morning timeslot and often relegated it to air at 5am on Saturday or Sunday before the church shows or farm report. Some even threw it out entirely as they regarded the show as radioactive to their attempts to maintain that their children's shows were all educational. And on the stations where it ran when it was supposed to, that timeslot tended to be preempted for sports.
  • Genre-Killer: Ironically, the same franchise that began the American Tokusatsu show has also been responsible for pretty much any later attempt not being able to succeed - since more often than not, it'll be seen as a rip-off of Power Rangers by those who don't know anything about Tokusatsunote . In fact, there's only been one attempt after the boom of Follow the Leader shows during the 90s to localize a Toku show, and although that show did its best to avoid association with Power Rangersnote , thanks to its serialized nature, said show bombed in its home countrynote .
  • I Knew It!: Many guessed that the 28th season would be adapted from Kishiryu Sentai Ryusoulger. Come the announcement at NY Toy Fair 2020...
  • International Coproduction: Between Saban Entertainment/Disney/Saban Brands/Hasbro's Allspark Pictures from the United States, Toei Company in Japan, and later Village Roadshow in New Zealand.
    • Toei also has half of the copyright ownership of all things Power Rangers.
  • Just For Fun: Linkara's semi-serious analysis series, History of Power Rangers.
    • And the even less serious Overanalyzed series by Girls Heart Geeks on Youtube.
  • Milestone Celebration: "Forever Red" (10 seasons), "Legacy of Power" (500 episodes), "Once a Ranger" (15 years), Power Rangers Megaforce (20 years/seasons — officially), "Dimensions in Danger" (25 years/seasons).
  • Name's the Same:
    • There are two ladies named Kat; one's a love interest for Tommy and the Pink Zeo Ranger, and the other a space faring Cat Girl from SPD.
    • There's Sean, Adam's protégé in the Mighty Morphin episode "Mirror of Regret", and Shawn, Adam's rival for Tanya's affections, whom Adam defeats in a Kung Fu tournament in Zeo's " Game of Honor."
    • There's also Mike the Magna Defender and Mike the Green Samurai Ranger. Incidentally there's another Green Samurai Ranger too. Also; two Thunder Megazords, two sets of Ninja Zords and three sets of Dino Zords.
    • The first Power Rangers character with the name Emily was Jason Scott's love interest in Zeo. The name was used again for the Yellow Ranger in Samurai.
    • The names "Eric" and "Merrick" would likely bring to mind the respective Sixth Rangers of Time Force and Wild Force. However, these names were originally used for a pair of monster brothers in season three of Mighty Morphin. Eric was also the name of the Red Dino Thunder Ranger's twin brother.
    • Hayley Ziktor from Dino Thunder shares her forename with the White Ranger Hayley Foster from Ninja Steel.
  • No Export for You: In South Korea, from Ninja Storm onwards, combined with Translation Matchmaking. Also in New Zealand (where oddly the show is being shot) until Samurai.
  • Old Shame: Between being a well known kids show that can inspire Typecasting/I Am Not Spock for ambitious actors alongside a very low budget that pays them the bare minimum and a rough filming schedule, some actors have regrets from being a part of the show.
    • David Yost (Billy, the first Blue Ranger) hid from the fandom after the show ended, as he revealed in a 2010 interview he was gay and that he quit the show after being passively harassed by the behind-the-camera staff. But Yost made it clear that he still enjoyed the experience of playing Billy, loves the fans who support him and frequently goes to Power Morphicon to hang out with former cast mates. However, when Saban invited him to cameo in Super Megaforce, Yost declined, comparing it to an abusive ex trying to get back together with you.
    • Amy Jo Johnson (Kimberly, the first Pink Ranger) also fell under this during the late 90's and early 2000's. At the time she was trying to make it as a singer/songwriter/actor and didn't want to talk about it. After a respectable career beyond the show she has come back to appreciate her time on the show and has even said that she would love to play Kimberly once again if asked to.
    • Danny Slavin (Leo, the Red Galaxy Ranger), for the record, did get along very well with his castmates, producer Scott Page-Pagter and director Koichi Sakamoto as well as the writers. However, there was always a lot of tension between him and Saban's management, which soured his relationship with the franchise for many years. He later admitted he only did the role to pay for law school, and was disillusioned during the Lightspeed Rescue crossover when Amy Miller (Trakeena) was being slighted on her salary and left the set in protest; it was also partly due to the fact that he had already fallen out with management. He nearly sat out the "Forever Red" reunion, until a friend and producer convinced him to have a few unmorphed scenes filmed late in the process. Eventually he returned for Super Megaforce's version of the Legend War, despite having not acted in 10 years. Like Amy Jo Johnson, he seems to have gotten over his old shame; he can now be seen frequenting Power Morphicon, Comic-Con, and other related fan conventions.
    • For a different variety of example, when Ron Wasserman recorded new versions of several songs from the series, he intentionally did not redo "White Ranger Tiger Power" because of the Unfortunate Implications of the song's title. In a later YouTube comment, Wasserman stated that the implications of the title/lyric made the song an old shame of his from the beginning.
    • Michael Taber (Riley, the Green Dino Charge Ranger) wrote on Twitter in 2017 that being on the show was the biggest regret of his entire life, but did not specify the reason why and deleted his post shortly after. He later revealed at a convention that he was drunk when he made the tweet, and claimed that what he meant to say was that he simply didn't have a desire to be an actor anymore and wanted to retire. Basically, he didn't regret his time on the show because of the show itself, but rather because his own personal endeavors caused him to lose interest in it. It's possible there's more to the story that he won't share, but given that he has talked about his role as Riley occasionally since, he's likely gotten over whatever it was that caused him to feel that way, even though he declined to reprise his role in Beast Morphers.
    • James Napier (Conner, the Red Dino Ranger) has never talked about his time on the show in any capacity since he left. Reportedly, he only took the role to make money towards launching his career as a filmmaker, and has never attended a single Power Morphicon or any other fan convention. Indeed, he has become very successful in his homeland as a director, with his 2015 film The Dark Horse even receiving universal acclaim as one of the best New Zealand films ever made. With this newfound success, as well as his complete silence on his role as Conner, it's safe to say that he doesn't want anything to do with the franchise ever again, and doesn't have any reason to.
  • The Production Curse: Being galactic saviors don't protect the Rangers from these. See the trope page for examples.
  • Recursive Import: Power Rangers was dubbed back into Japanese from Mighty Morphin to Lightspeed Rescue, then after Saban reacquired the rights to the series, dubs of SPD, Mystic Force, Samurai, and Megaforce were released. With the case of SPD, most of Dekaranger's cast voiced their respective counterparts, and for the dub of Mighty Morphin, Machiko Soga redubbed herself as Rita Repulsa.
  • Saved from Development Hell: The attempts in The '80s and early Nineties by Saban (and Marvel Comics before that — retroactively prophethic, since one of the reasons Saban managed to repurchase and thus save the series so easily is that Disney just finished acquiring Marvel at the time (both brands filled the same boys' superhero properties niche)) just to get the pilot picked up by a network, ANY NETWORK. It was only when Saban went to Fox Kids, and Margaret Loesch (who worked with Stan Lee on the Marvel attempt) who was the head at the time, that the show was picked up. This combined with the Uncancelled entry below, brings new meaning to the lyric, No one can ever take them down..
  • Screwed by the Network: Disney's actions towards the series, including the show's gradual disappearance from cable, scheduling RPM where it can constantly be pre-empted and timeshifted, and the lack of full-season DVD sets in the US.
    • Network to the Rescue: Saban bought the rights back.
    • While the series' airing on Nickelodeon brought with it large amounts of marketing and brought it renewed popularity, Nickelodeon also severely cut down the number of episodes per season, forcing Samurai to be dragged out for two years in order to fit in the whole story, and forcing Saban to adapt Tensou Sentai Goseiger as the twentieth anniversary season instead of the more appropriate Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger.
      • With Hasbro producing the toys after Saban ended its partnership with Bandai of America, the biggest obstacle to the franchise moving from Nickelodeon after the end of "Super Ninja Steel" was removed...but this change in partnerships came after Saban renewed their contract with Nickelodeon for 3 more yearsnote , meaning that at the bare minimum, Beast Morphers, as well as whatever comes after that, will suffer this fatenote .
  • Troubled Production: Read all about it here.
  • Underage Casting: Power Rangers usually averts this, by having the majority of their teams be high school students (played by 20-somethings,) but the occasional season will have a team of rangers with other professions that require extensive training still played by the typical 18-25 actors they always have. There's also the running joke about the "Impossibly Fast Doctorate Program," where characters have gained credentials in obscenely shorts periods of time. Dana Mitchell of Lightspeed Rescue was a paramedic played by 20-year-old Alison MacInnis, who was then a full-fledged pediatrician the next year. Similarly, by the time of Dino Thunder, Tommy Oliver (then-29-year-old-Jason David Frank) had finished college, gotten a Doctorate in Paleontology, and developed the Dino Thunder technology, all in the six year span since he graduated high school midway through Turbo.
    • In Time Force, Michael Copon (Lucas) was the youngest cast member at 18 years of age. Assuming that the Time Force agency is the futuristic equivalent of a police academy, and that Lucas is the same age as his actor, that would mean that he somehow managed to finish school, go through all the training required to work in law enforcement, and meet all the qualifications despite being young enough to be a senior in high school. This also goes for Erin Cahill (Jen), who was 21 at the time, though to a lesser extent. Deborah Estelle Harris (Katie) at 23 is a little more believable. Justified with Kevin Kleinberg (Trip), as Trip is an alien and therefore could be any age.
    • Will (the Black Ranger) from Operation Overdrive is played by the then-20-year-old Samuell Benta. While it's not impossible, it isn't likely that someone of that age would meet all of the criteria for being a professional spy and have that much knowledge of advanced security equipment without proper training unless they were a literal prodigy. However, Will's age is never stated, so it's possible he could be older than his actor.
  • What Could Have Been: Has its own page, but three notable examples stand out.
    • Many seasons have examples of this for one reason or another, but two examples stand out just for the sheer size. In over two decades, there has been only two seasons of Super Sentai to be skipped over when it came time for adaptation: Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters and Ressha Sentai ToQgernote . Amit Bhaumik, probably best known for the Milestone Celebration "Forever Red", had an entire story outline prepared for the former, too; one he called Power Rangers: Cyber Corps.
    • While the franchise was still owned by Disney, there were plans for an animated series. A pilot script was written and initial designs were made, but Toei wouldn't allow it to happen.
    • When Saban bought the franchise back from Disney, he convinced them to sell it to him at a lower price by claiming he would take it to The Hub (now Discovery Family). While he couldn't take it since the Hub was (and still is) co-owned by Hasbro, and at the time, the toys for Power Rangers were made by Bandai (who are rivals with Hasbro and their Asian partner Takara Tomy), suppose that Bandai had given the okay, and Margaret Losch was willing to put aside any bad feelings she had towards Saban that were a result of her ousting from Saban during the latter's merger with Fox Family. Would Power Rangers have faired any better on the Hub than it did on Nickelodeon, the network it actually went to? And would the franchise still be 3 seasons behind?
  • The Wiki Rule: RangerWiki, which also covers the original Super Sentai series.
  • Word of Saint Paul: Johnny Yong Bosch said that Adam's remark about his returning to his dojo at the end of "Once a Ranger" was a lie, and he travels the world using his powers to help people.
    • David Yost believes that Billy's mother, never introduced in the show, is dead due to cancer. He pitched the idea to Saban and wanted to explore the angle, but the show staff wouldn't bite possibly due to Saban's (usual) taboo about not referring to death.
