Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers

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

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.

Suggested correction: It's been shown on various occasions that the zords can be operated remotely.

Yes but to call upon the zords you need to have the power coin. The Rangers don't have the coin, therefore the Tyrannosaurus shouldn't be there.

Zordon was disabled by brainwashed Tommy, so he couldn't have summoned it at this point.

Show generally

Plot hole: Quite often the Rangers were contacted at school and would teleport to the command center, danger zone, etc. It is safe to say that the faculty would notice star pupils missing classes so often, yet it was never questioned or addressed.

Suggested correction: I do think schools would be evacuated if there is another monster attack, hence they could not notice them not being around, since class does not take place.

There is no confirmation that schools are evacuated. This explanation is only a theory.

And even if they were, it is standard operating procedure during and school evacuation to take attendance to make sure no kids were left behind. Repeated absences from these role calls would raise eyebrows.

Agreed. There are even times when the Rangers are at the Angel Grove Youth Center but are called away but, nobody notices as people leave all of the time.

Missing Green - S2-E14

Plot hole: During the Green Candle, in series 1, we are told that the only reason Tommy's Green Ranger powers could be drained is because he touched a special wax. However, Kim, Billy, Zack, and Trini did not touch the special wax, therefore the candles shouldn't have stolen their powers. When they were captured, they were transported straight to a prison cell as Goldar lit the candles, therefore the Rangers couldn't have touched the candles when captured.

Suggested correction: Different candles. A different idea. Just because they did things one way, one day doesn't mean they absolutely have to follow those rules the second time and apply to different people. They could have changed the plan.

Master Vile and the Metallic Armor (3) - S3-E30

Plot hole: In this episode Globbor's energy is drained when Alpha stops the Solar Eclipse, and his Energy drains in the sunlight and severed the physical link between him and Ninjor. This is strange because in the previous episode Globbor had no trouble fighting in the sunlight, and the link stayed intact in the sunlight.

Rangers in Reverse - S3-E33

Plot hole: The whole "reverse time" thing is messed up. Master Vile claims that everyone has been changed back to children. So where would the adults we see for the remainder of the series come from? The Rangers are all about 20, and they're turned back into about 10 year lords. Why is Lt. Stone turned back approximately 30 years, into a 10 year old? It can't be that the reversal was different for each person, as Master Vile claims everyone is a child again. Very confusing.

Suggested correction: The entirety of Angel Grove doesn't know them personally. Also that is the power of voice over. You would never sound that clear while wearing a tight helmet that covers your mouth.

So what about when they talk to recurring characters such as the guy who works the bar at the youth centre (can't think of his name off the top of my head).

Haha. It is a bit like standard suspension of disbelief and a common mistake to most superhero TV/movies/comic books even, but I very much agree that there is no real way to make a rational and logical explanation for it. They do meet recurring characters a lot, plus, I mean...they all hang out together, some of them wearing also clothing patterned with a dominance of their trademark ranger colors and that makes the fact that they are a group even more conspicuous.

Sammo Premium member

They all wear clothing dominated by the colour of their persona. Plus the fact that they are never around when the rangers are around.

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.

Trivia: Tommy has been more colours than any other Ranger. He has been the Green, White, Red, and Black Ranger.

Answer: Probably to save on costs of filming the same scene. In the reused shots they have always morphed so you can't see the actors. They just have to pay them to do voice-overs rather than the entire scene.
