  • Awesome Music: While Lord Gaga's third fight can be giant a That One Boss moment to some, the music that plays during the fight, Dancing to the Beating is both a fitting song for the boss and a fun beat to listen to on it's own, easily being the most memorable song outside of the Anime Theme Song.
  • Complete Monster: Lord Gaga is an evil alien invader. At some point in the past, he attempted a takeover and permanently crippled Tammy's sister. Despite being defeated, he destroyed the benevolent alien Brain's body, reducing him to a Brain in a Jar. Returning in modern day, he would trick the crew into using their show to start his very real invasion, then try to murder the lot of them when they are no longer useful. Among other crimes, he would have a monster kidnap and attempt to murder civilians, mass brainwashing, and experimenting on innocent people to turn into monsters, one of which the crew are forced to kill. He would target Tammy in particular, purely out of spite, turning her into a monster and trying to force the crew to kill her. In the Sixth Ranger route, he attempts to sacrifice her to his master, Villain X, in a cowardly attempt to save himself, while in the Driver Route, he murders her father in cold blood. In the latter route, he also holds all but the Assault hostage trying to force them to fight each other to the death for their freedom. Despite being a minion of Villain X, Lord Gaga enjoys every moment of the horrible things he does.

  • Game-Breaker: The Scout skill Biinon's Invisibility is both this and Good Bad Bugs; it puts the Scout in stealth, heals 30% of their Health, and gives them 100% to attack... but with how it's worded, the stealth bonus and attack bonus only break when the Scout does a weaponless PHYSICAL attack. With enough Skill Regen to get Biinon's to 1 Turn CD, you can stack up to -three- instances of +100% Damage at a time, which also calculates incorrectly with the Season 5 Scout skill that has 200% scaling, Shockwave... two stacks of Biinon's can result in Scout with a 5x3 attack skill that does 3000+ damage TO ALL ENEMIES INSIDE. Even Lightning Attack(Free Action) benefits from the Biinon's damage miscalculation, meaning Scout becomes the de facto best damage dealer on the team... add in Lead's Shout of Courage for another +30% Attack Bonus...

  • Mis-blamed: Many blame Saban for the change in the cover art from more Super Sentai oriented gear to cheap bucket helmets. Behold Studios has stated this was due to the story being about a fledgling sentai studio with very little money. A lot of the early costumes are made out of cheap material. An early Monster of the Week is a cardboard box monster...made out of a cardboard box. Behold thought this was what the core of the game was about and changed the cover art. Better costumes can be unlocked later. The misunderstanding comes from this coinciding with Behold adding "inspired by Saban's Power Rangers" to the logo at the same time as the art change.
  • Ho Yay: Gaga is...pretty friendly towards Lead, even if Lead is a guy. When he reveals his true colors, he seems all too happy Lead's under his control. Lead themself calls him "master".

  • Les Yay: Techie has a pretty obvious crush on the Sixth Ranger Tammy. Even if Techie is a girl.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Lord Gaga kidnapping, experimenting on, and brainwashing Tammy into fighting the heroes.
  • Overshadowed by Controversy: The game got more attention for having copyright issues than to it's own merits.
  • Spiritual Licensee: Intentionally so, to Power Rangers. Later plot revelations bring a certain unofficial Sentai to mind.
  • Woolseyism: The English and Portuguese versions of the game have very different texts, the English version has much more puns and memes while the Portuguese version uses more slang.
  • That One Boss: Gaga's third fight involves chasing him around the room as he teleports, dealing with bosses summoned from previous levels, and dodging all their attacks with minimum healing or revival skills. Oh, and the bosses summon mooks, too.

How well does it match the trope?
