Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers

Green With Evil (1): Out of Control - S1-E17

Continuity mistake: Up until Green No More in Series 2 (where the Green Ranger powers are destroyed), the Green Ranger's overshield constantly changes between solid-looking metal to flimsy-looking cotton. This is the most obvious difference between the Japanese and US footage.

Show generally

Revealing mistake: In SPD Episode "Sam Part 1" (13-7), when the Ranger first yells "SPD emergency," a piece of Jack's Morpher breaks off.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: When the Villains send their cronies (for example, Putties, Tengu Warriors, Cogs, Piranhatrons, etc.), their numbers constantly change from when they arrive, to when they leave. This is due to the use of Japanese footage used from Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: When the Rangers morph, the clothes they are wearing don't match what they have been wearing that episode - this also applies to hair.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In the 12 series (Power Rangers Dino Thunder), in the episode "White Thunder Part 3", The Red Ranger throws his blaster to the ground whilst fighting the White Ranger. In the wide shot, the blaster disappears.

Food Fight - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: When Pudgy Pig is standing outside of the food packaging plant, a human hand can be seen sticking out of Pudgy Pig's wrist. (00:15:30)

Season 1 generally

Revealing mistake: When one of Rita's monsters tears a building apart, the buildings are completely hollow, and nothing more than 6 pieces of Styrofoam stuck together to look like a building.

Show generally

Other mistake: Episode 13-12: "Shadow (2)." When Cruger is challenged to defeat 100 robots, a red countdown meter appears on the screen, ticking down each time Cruger dispatches an opponent. When the counter is at 21, Cruger slices his sword at a robot, which then goes down. But the counter stays at 21 and only goes to 22 when he slices at the next robot. Every robot in the sequence goes down after a single hit from Cruger's sword.

Season 1 generally

Revealing mistake: When we see the Dragonzord, Tommy is sometimes standing on top of it. However, it is obvious that "Tommy" is nothing more than a small plastic figure.

A Friend in Need (3) - S3-E3

Plot hole: Somehow Bulk and Skull know that the Rangers use the phrase "It's Morphin' time" and also reach behind their belts. They're not supposed to know this, unless they know the Rangers' identities (which of course they don't know despite their "efforts").

Season 1 generally

Audio problem: Rita is dubbed over extremely poorly - her words don't match her mouth. This is because Power Rangers is adapted from the Japanese Super Sentai series, and the footage of Rita was from the Japanese series.

Show generally

Revealing mistake: Until the end of the 5th series, we can see part of the Zord costumes move about as the character in them walks about - sometimes they even look like they are going to fall off. This is particularly true in the 2nd series.

Season 1 generally

Continuity mistake: The clips on the side of the Rangers helmets constantly disappear and reappear.

Season 1 generally

Plot hole: Up until about Green With Evil, we can see the Rangers fighting Super Putties, which didn't come into the Series until after Green With Evil.

Season 1 generally

Deliberate mistake: In fight scenes, the Yellow Ranger's stature matches that of a male (and not Trini). This is because in the Japanese version of the show, the Yellow Ranger was played by a man.

Show generally

Visible crew/equipment: This happens mostly in the first 4 series - crew, lights, and equipment can be seen reflected in the Rangers helmets and visors.

Season 6 generally

Revealing mistake: We can see Ecliptor's zipper from behind - slightly revealing on Saban's part, considering Ecliptor is supposed to be an evil monster henchman of Astromena's.

Shift into Turbo (1) - S5-E1

Plot hole: Divatox and co. live in a submarine in Angel Grove lake. In "Hogday Afternoon", Angel Grove lake was drained to about 30ft at the deepest. The lake would have to be several hundred feet deep for a large submarine to hide there.

Season 1 generally

Continuity mistake: When in Tank mode and Megazord mode, the order in which the Rangers sit is: Billy, Trini, Jason, Kim, Zach. When switching between Tank mode and Megazord mode, Trini and Kim are switched - they are then back to their original seats once the Megazord has been formed.

Show generally

Other mistake: In one episode of Power Rangers Dino Thunder, Ethan is seen playing a game on a computer, Connor comes in and Ethan looks away from the computer to talk to him. The game Ethan was playing is still going, but Ethan has stopped playing, obviously a demo.
