YMMV / Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers: Shattered Grid

Go To

  • Base-Breaking Character: Drakkon is either a badass awesome villain, or an overpowered Boring Invincible Villain despite the massive number of heroes he's up against.
  • Complete Monster: Lord Drakkon. See that page for details.
  • Crack Pairing: Jason/Lauren is a couple nobody ever thought of before Shattered Grid, but it's become incredibly popular since the story began.
  • Crossover Ship: Issue #30 implies that Jason and Lauren have developed feelings for each other after spending so much of the crisis working together and gaining an appreciation of each others' abilities. Shattered Grid #1 confirms that the two mutually like each other, but because undoing Drakkon’s damage will create a time paradox that erases everyone’s memories of everything after Tommy’s death, not only will they forget each other, but - barring any time travel shenanigans - they won’t meet each other until the Legendary Battle, roughly twenty years later in Jason’s life when he'd be around twice Lauren's age (assuming it will happen at all).

  • Epileptic Trees: The finale has spawned a lot of them. The most common conception is when the team resets the multiverse, they accidentally erased the BOOM! universe and created the TV universe instead.
  • Fridge Brilliance: Why is there no big moment between the Mighty Morphin' & Zeo Rangers? Whilst both teams have lost Tommy to Lord Drakkon, it would really suck for the MMPR teens to find out that Zeo!Tommy succeeded Jason as the leader of the Rangers & was still killed by Drakkon.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • During Jonathan Tzachor's time directing the Samurai and Megaforce eras, he proclaimed that all Power Rangers seasons existed in their own continuity, similar to how Super Sentai had done until Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger, though fans dismissed this because of all the problems it brought. The idea here is brought up again, but this time in a more serious tone due to the fact that, thanks to Drakkon's actions, the Morphing Grid literally broke all the teams apart into separate universes to minimize the damage.

    • From the trailer: "So many Rangers... so much potential... squandered." This term could easily be described as a Take That! to most of the Neo Saban era seasons of the TV series.
  • "Holy Shit!" Quotient: How do you show how high the stakes are? You only seemingly kill off the the face of the franchise in the first issue!
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: Despite the entire premise revolving around different Rangers of different teams working with and encountering each other, the 2017 movie team are completely absent for some reason.
  • Unexpected Character
    • The Early-Bird Cameo of the Power Rangers: Beast Morphers team. Who'd think they'd show up when their series was just announced before the story kicked off?
    • The Dark Ranger, who was Adapted Out of Dino Charge. It's even been confirmed he's Heckyl, who was strongly implied to have been set up to become that Ranger in the first place.

  • What an Idiot!: Issue #30. Rita uses the Green Candle on Drakkon and has him on the ropes. With her gloating, she prepares to strike him down and end his threat once and for all.
    You'd Expect: Rita to do so. He has murdered Rangers, ravaged time and space and is a threat to all of existence as a whole. He needs to be put down.
    Instead: Zordon and Cruger, despite knowing his threat level, pulls the Thou Shalt Not Kill card on Rita, allowing Finster-5 to sneak in and take everyone out.

How well does it match the trope?
