Season 1 generally

Corrected entry: When the Dinozords are called, they emerge from their hiding places, and assemble in a line, before formed Megazord Tank mode. During this time, it is a completely rocky background. After the Sabre-toothed tiger assembles, we cut to the Triceratops - which is now assembling in a completely desert-like environment. It then switches back to the rocky environment.

Correction: What we see is the Zords travelling from their hiding places. The triceratops hides somewhere like a desert, so it will change between desert and rocky as the terrain where they all meet is rocky.

Show generally

Corrected entry: This happens until the end of series 3. Lord Zedd and Rita send down monsters to Angel Grove, in California. Yet when they cast their projectiles down to Earth (for example, with Zedd, a lightning bolt) they are seldom ever aimed even in the American continent.

Correction: We also occasionally see them fly around the earth. So its easy to assume they just fly to the destination.

Show generally

Corrected entry: Rita throws her wand down to earth and we see the red ball on the left hand side as it flashes. When the camera cuts out to show the ground falling away, the red part is now on the right.

Correction: The staff is traveling a quarter million miles. I don't think a half turn is that unlikely. Even if it didn't turn, all that would have to happen is the viewpoint to switch from one side to the other.

Show generally

Corrected entry: Throughout season 1 - 3 the rangers call upon the zords. We then see them all get into their zords. However, when they go for the megazord, we see the saber tooth tiger, Triceratops, Mastodon and T-Rex all combine and form "tank mode." We then see inside the cockpit of the megazord at this stage and all 5 rangers are present. They then switch to battle mode whereby the megazord stands up and the Pterodactyl comes in and joins together creating the shield on the megazord's chest. However, up until the pterodactyl joins the others, Kimberly shouldn't be in the main cockpit as we've seen her in her zord.

A Demon Premium member

Correction: It's possible, and quite likely, that her Zord has some sort of autopilot. At the very least, that maneuver (which is identical every time) could easily be computerized.

Greg Dwyer

To a degree I agree with the statement above, however, we see Kimberly get into her Zord. How could she then, move to the main Megazord.

Forever Red - S10-E34

Corrected entry: Tommy takes his jacket off to use as a weapon when fending off the Cogs. After a few shots from different angles, the jacket has completely disappeared.

Correction: He threw it on a cog and kicked the cog away. It is shown. Apparently he ditched the jacket from then on out.

Forever Red - S10-E34

Corrected entry: When the Rangers confront the Machine Empire generals, Jason is seen taking off his jacket. In the next shot of him, the jacket has completely disappeared.

Correction: That's because he took it off. The next shot is of his shoulders and you can see them moving as if he threw it to the side below the camera sight.

A Friend in Need (1) - S3-E1

Corrected entry: In the UK, the "Friend In Need" episodes were aired after "Ninja Quest". In "Ninja Quest", the Rangers got new Zords and Powers, and they had their old ones again in "Friend In Need" - despite them being shown to of been destroyed in "Ninja Quest".

Correction: That's not a mistake in the show. The episodes simply aired out of order in the UK.

Return of an Old Friend (2) - S1-E50

Corrected entry: When Tommy gets his dagger back and starts to control the Dragonzord, he is playing it and moving his hand that is on the blade, but the holes on the flute are supposed to be on the handle.


Correction: The Dragon Dagger has holes on the blade and buttons on the handle: http://www.danglitch.com/costumes/props/images/dagger.jpg.

Trakeena's Revenge (2) - S8-E30

Corrected entry: Leo's Jet Jammer was destroyed in "The Journey's end part 2" when it crashed on Mirinoi's moon, and the other 4 Jet Jammers were destroyed in "The Journey's End Part 3" as they were parked on the Terra-venture city dome when it blew up.

Correction: This happens a year later. They could have been rebuilt.

Hogday Afternoon (2) - S3-E43

Corrected entry: Assuming that in Series 2, Zordon gave permission for (before they were Rangers) Rocky, Aisha, and Adam to enter, Goldar and Rito shouldn't of been able to go into the Command Centre. Thoughout the series, it has been stressed that no-one enters the Command Centre without a Power Coin - this was even one of the subplots of Green with Evil, in Series 1.

Correction: The entire subplot for Rito and Goldar during this period involved them getting through the Command Center's defenses using an ancient map, thereby gaining access to the Command Center.

A Different Shade of Pink (3) - S3-E24

Corrected entry: Season 2 had a two part episode called "The Power Transfer" where Jason, Zack, and Trini transferred their powers to three new rangers. To do this they needed some special sword on a far away planet. So how come Kimberly didn't have to use the same sword to transfer her power coin to Katherine?

Correction: Alpha had worked on severing Kim's connection to the Pink coin a few episodes earlier or she would have died. He probably did use the sword off screen.

Forever Red - S10-E34

Corrected entry: Tommy, the Red Zeo Ranger, and TJ, the Red Turbo Ranger, are both Morphed at the same time. The Turbo powers are an upgrade from the Zeo powers, and Tommy passed on his Zeo/Turbo powers to TJ, in series 5 - both could not be morphed at the same time.

Correction: The Turbo powers were replacements, not an upgrade, for the Zeo powers. Also, in Power Rangers Dino Thunder as well as Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, we have seen multiples of the same Ranger powers active. For example, in MMPR, when Jason, Zach, and Trini transfered their powers to Rocky, Adam, and Aisha, there were two sets of black, yellow and black Rangers. In Dino Thunder, there was the evil white Ranger clone, which was an evil duplicate of Trent Mercer's Ranger powers. What's fascinating about this one is the fact that it also played into a plot point, where Trent's powers were weakening (somewhat like Tommy's), and it was a result of a phenomenon known as "Dual Drain" where there are two copies of the same Ranger power, and the Morphin Grid has trouble compensating.

Show generally

Corrected entry: This happens mostly during the early series. Whenever the Rangers throw a flying side kick (the jumping one that they seem to be rather fond of), they do it all wrong. They throw the kick leg out from the start, while the kick is actually thrown with the leg chambered until the moment before impact. Throwing it the way that the Rangers do will jam your leg.

Correction: It's stylized. Every martial arts film/series/show ever made features "fake" moves like this. It's a filmmaking convention, not a mistake.

Phixius Premium member

Season 2 generally

Corrected entry: Whenever we are shown Lord Zedd's palace on the Moon, we can see dark storm clouds overhead...which, of course, is impossible on the Moon.

Correction: A guy who can create magical monsters and grow them to giant size can probably manage a few storm clouds, to make his fortress look more menacing.

Return of an Old Friend (1) - S1-E49

Corrected entry: When Billy is under Rita's spell, he goes to the Command Centre, and calls on the Dragondagger from Zordon. When Tommy gave up his power coin in the Green Candle, he was shown to have given the Dragondagger to Jason, not to Zordon.

Correction: Jason gave it to Zordon for safe keeping, as he still had his original red powers and dinozord.

Day of the Dumpster - S1-E1

Corrected entry: Zordon tells the Rangers that their Zords are based on Dinosaurs. 2 of the Zords are the Mastadon and Sabre-toothed tiger - these are not dinosaurs, merely pre-evolutionary creatures.

Correction: First, there is no such thing as a pre-evolutionary creature, you mean prehistoric. Second, Zordon just lumped them all as dinosaurs rather than split hairs. Technically, the pteradactyl isn't a true dinosaur either.

Season 2 generally

Corrected entry: Whenever the Triceritops is shown transforming into the Unicorn, The Triceritops is missing it's grey tail as seen in series 1.

Correction: It is there; it's just tucked in at the top, you can see the end of it out the back.

Season 1 generally

Corrected entry: Goldar's voice changes as the series progresses.

Correction: Goldar is a space alien and we know little about his species; his voice changing could be apart of him growing older.

A Friend in Need (3) - S3-E3

Corrected entry: Kimberley (in morphed form) sneezes on Repellator, causing it to catch Kimberley's flu. How did Repellator catch the flu, with Kim's helmet being in the way?

Correction: The germs from her sneeze travelled through one of the breathing holes the mask has wherever they may be.

Show generally

Corrected entry: When the Rangers, and Villains fire projectiles at each other (for example, energy blasts) the ensuing blast suggests they were hit. However, when played in slow motion, we can see that the explosions shoot up from the ground around them - they don't even touch the characters.

Correction: A) having to watch something in slow mo is not a valid mistake. B) Just because the explosion doesn't touch them it does not mean it will still throw them around and hurt them even if the bad guys do miss.

Changing of the Zords (2) - S3-E19

Corrected entry: Billy tells Tommy that he can use his Portal Opener to rescue Kimberley from the Dark Dimension, where Tommy once was. There are a few mistakes here. 1) The Portal Opener is completely different to one used in Series 1. 2) The first time it was used, it was to go after the Green Candle, which was stealing Tommy's Green Ranger powers. Tommy was never trapped in a Dark Dimension. 3) Kimberely is in Lord Zedd's Dark Dimension, not Rita's. (Which is where the Green Candle was). The Dimensions are completely different.

Correction: 1)A more powerful portal opener was used since the first one was flimsy and weak. 2)Tommy was trapped in the Dark Dimension as the evil Green Ranger. He was left there as punishment by Goldar for letting Jason escape in "Green with Evil 3, The Rescue." 3)The Dark Dimension is a holding cell for Zedd's or Rita's prisoners. Even the Rangers parents were trapped there once when they were kidnapped and ransomed for the power coins resulting in Tommy's return as the Green Ranger.

Forever Red - S10-E34

Corrected entry: The Turbo powers were destroyed in "Chase Into Space part 2", at the end of the series 5 - TJ shouldn't of been able to morph into the Red Turbo Ranger.

Correction: T.J.'s Turbo powers were linked to Eltar not the Power Chamber, and were restored once the attack on Eltar stopped, since Justin was able to become a Turbo Ranger later on.

Always a Chance - S6-E25

Corrected entry: When Adam shows Alpha the old Mastodon morpher, Alpha claims that the Power Coin was destroyed ages ago - this is not true. Only the Zords were destroyed, not the Coins.

Correction: Actually in "Ninja Quest part 1" when Alpha tried to provide the Zords with more power he ended up causing a power surge which caused the power coins to short circut (Hence the damage shown on Adam's morpher), which is why the rangers never used the Dino Coins after that.

Forever Red - S10-E34

Corrected entry: This episode features a reunion of ten past and present Red Rangers from the different Power Rangers series. At the climax of the episode, all ten rangers morph. However, this should be impossible, as several of the ranger powers had either ceased to exist (as in the case of the Lost Galaxy powers) or been given up by their previous holders (such as Jason, who ceded the original Mighty Morphin' powers to Rocky).


Correction: The Lost Galaxy powers are still around, just dormant inside the Quesar Sabers. As for Jason, his Power Coin was dupilicated using the Sword of Light, hence why there are two Red, Black, and Yellow Rangers during "The Power Transfer (2)." Since Jason was not in the battle with Rito in "Ninja Quest (1)," his Coin was still active. Or, if you choose, it healed itself (much like Adam's coin started doing in between "Ninja Quest (1)" and "Always a Chance"). As for T.J.'s powers, they were restored once the attack on Eltar stopped, since Justin was able to become a Turbo Ranger later on.

Forever Red - S10-E34

Corrected entry: We are shown the damaged, burnt remains of King Mondo, the Machine Empire leader. However, when we last saw Mondo, in "Countdown to Destruction Part 2", in Series 6, he was destroyed into (literally) a pile of dust. Where did these metal remains come from?

Correction: I do belive this was just a statue of their fallen leader, not his charred remains.

White Light (2) - S2-E18

Corrected entry: All the other Rangers wear their Morphers on their belt, as the "buckle," if you will. When Tommy is the White Ranger, his morpher isn't on his belt, yet it is during the Power Rangers movie.

Correction: This is because the White Ranger suit is nor based on designs from the same Sentai series. The original six Power Rangers (Red, Black, Blue, Yellow, Pink and Green) were based on costume designs from ZyuRanger. The White Ranger costume is from the next Sentai series DaiRanger, which were totally unrealated to each other. The DaiRangers did not have morphers like the ZyuRangers. They morphed using devices called "Doron Changers" (later used as the Magna Defender morpher in PRLG). Tommy still had the usual morpher like the others, but gold like his Green Ranger morpher was.

A Season to Remember - S4-E50

Corrected entry: In this episode, Tanya tells the other Power Rangers about her African American tradition of Kwanzaa. But Tanya isn't really African-American; she recently came to the Rangers directly from Africa. Native Africans rarely celebrate Kwanzaa. Tanya was also fluent in English the moment she arrived in Angel Grove. It's as if the show wants the viewer to forget that Tanya wasn't always part of the community.


Correction: In season 3 young Tanya was sent by young Aisha to deliver the yellow piece of the ZEO-crystal to Angel Grove from somewhere in the past. When time got restored Tanya was suddenly part of the community and always had been.

The Wanna-Be Ranger - S2-E4

Corrected entry: It was stated in the first episode that the Rangers should always keep their identity secret, or they'll lose their powers - yet the Rangers had no problem calling the Blue Ranger by his real name of Billy, right in front of the public.

Correction: Like he's the only person named Billy in the entire world...


The Delta Discovery - S6-E11

Corrected entry: This happens until the end of the series. When the Delta Megaship is found, it attaches to the Astro Megaship, and they travel around together. However, thoughout the series, the Delta Megaship is constantly disappearing and reappearing.

Correction: They do not "attach and travel around together". They only ever combine during Megazord battles to form the Astro Delta Megazord. They never attach in ship mode.

The End of the Power Rangers (1) - S10-E39

Corrected entry: Zordon tells us that Rita and co. were released from a dumpster on the Moon. Look carefully at the background when they are shown to be released...a nice blue sky? On the Moon?

Correction: In Power Rangers, the moon has always had a atmosphere and Earth-like gravity. This is why, Rita and Zedd could drive their RV around the surface during Zeo and why the Red Rangers in Forever Red didn't suffocate, amoung others. It may not be true of the moon in real life, but it is consistent for Power Rangers.

Forever Red - S10-E34

Corrected entry: One of the Generals of the Machine Empire claim that Lord Zedd was a fool to leave his Zord, Serpentera, buried on the Moon. At the start of Series 4, when the Machine Empire attacked, Zedd & Rita escaped on Serpentera - Serpentera never returned to the Moon.

Correction: But Rita and Zedd soon returned to the Moon and were shown travelling around the surface in the RV. It is probable that they came back to the Moon in Serpentera after staying with Master Vile, landed on the far side from the Machine Empire base and used the RV to get closer for their attacks without being detected.

Hogday Afternoon (2) - S3-E43

Corrected entry: Billy uses a remote control to pilot the Falconzord (a Ninjazord) to assist the Aquitain Rangers. However, when Goldar destroyed the Rangers power coins in "Alien Rangers of Aquitar", we are told that the Ninjazords were now inoperable.

Correction: The Falconzord is special as it can combine with both the Ninja and Shogun Megazords. Billy was probably controlling the Falconzord as a Shogunzord, thus not needing the Falcon Power Coin.

White Light (1) - S2-E17

Corrected entry: This happens until "Alien Rangers of Aquitar," in Series 3. When Tommy is the White Ranger, Saba, his sword constantly disappears and reappears.

Correction: Saba does not disappear and reappear at anytime. The only times when Saba is not holstered on the White Ranger's belt, was before Saba was presented to Tommy, when Saba is being used to fight with, Saba is controlling the Tigerzord or in "Best Man for the Job" when Saba was stolen.

True Blue to the Rescue - S6-E18

Corrected entry: The Turbo powers were destroyed in "Chase Into Space" part 2, at the end of series 5 - Justin shouldn't of been able to morph into the Blue Turbo Ranger.

Correction: The Blue Turbo Powers could possibly be powered by Storm Blaster for this mission (it was Storm Blaster who gave Justin the Turbo Moprher and key).

Master Vile and the Metallic Armor (2) - S3-E29

Corrected entry: When Master Vile's monster drains power from Ninjor, we can see that some of Ninjor's appearance transfers over the monster. When the monster does this to the Rangers however, the appearance drain matches of the Aquitain Rangers (Who had not yet come into the series). This is because Saban had carried over the costumes from the previous series, so that all 6 Rangers could remain (Due to their only being 5 Aquitain Rangers).

Correction: Actually this was because all of the Zord battle footage (and therefore the footage of Globber fighting them), was taken from the Sentai series KakuRanger. The KakuRanger were the Alien Rangers of Power Rangers. They were the ones fighting Globber when the footage was made.

Season 1 generally

Corrected entry: Throughout series 1, there is a World Map on the classroom wall. It still lists the Soviet Union. The show was made in 1993, a full 2 years after the Soviet Union breakup.

Correction: An out-of-date map on the wall of a classroom? Hardly unusual.

J I Cohen

Forever Red - S10-E34

Corrected entry: Bulk and Skull reminisce about the times they had with Zedd and Rita - Bulk and Skull never met Rita or Zedd in person, despite being constantly threatened by their monsters.

Correction: Bulk and Skull have indeed met Zedd and Rita. It was in the Season 3 episode, Master Vile and the Metallic Armour, Part 2, when Zedd and Rita had a celebration party at the Youth Centre.
