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

DetectiveGadget85

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.

Green With Evil (2): Jason's Battle - S1-E18

Other mistake: In the scene where Tommy is proving himself to Goldar on the beach against the putties, Tommy stares down the last remaining putty and makes a charge towards him. In the wide shot of Tommy charging towards the putty, one of the "dead" putties on the ground lifts his head off the ground slightly, almost as if he is watching the action unfold. (00:09:05)

Suggested correction: They're not dead. They're incapacitated or in a great deal of pain.

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.

DetectiveGadget85

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).

Ssiscool Premium member

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.

Day of the Dumpster - S1-E1

Other mistake: After the teens leave the command center, Rita sees this and orders the creation of her Putties. Her henchman slaps down a few things of clay into a mold loosely, that then show the perfect figurines of the putties coming out of them. However with the shape of the mold, there is no way that the clay would come out in shapes like that or with that detail. (00:11:35)

Suggested correction: Given that these are literal monsters and a witch living on the moon after being imprisoned for 10,000 years, I don't think we can say for certain what their machinery will do.

LorgSkyegon

This is speculating too much. Practically making the same argument that it's OK because magic. The general physics of what is being displayed on the screen doesn't match up with how the clay fits into the mold even in the slightest.

Quantom X Premium member

What Quantom is saying is that they are using a press die to create the mold for the putties and no matter how you look at it, the volume of clay going into the mold is not enough to create the detail seen on the putties.

Ssiscool Premium member

It's not just that, but the shapes don't match up at all. He does the equivalent of putting clay into a round hole and getting a square out of it.

The Trouble with Shellshock - S1-E22

Character mistake: About halfway through the episode, we see Billy, Zack and Kimberly are frozen because of Shell-shock. Towards the end when Jason and Tommy are in the Zords fighting Shell-shock, the Yellow Ranger comes running with the flowers that unfreeze the Rangers and Zords. The Yellow Ranger yells "Jason, Billy, I have the Diandra flower!" She should have yelled Tommy's name instead of Billy since we know Billy is frozen and that Tommy is the one helping Jason fight Shell-shock.

Suggested correction: She doesn't know that. She was sent running after they were frozen.

DetectiveGadget85

So if she was sent after they were frozen, she would know Billy is frozen.

Suggested correction: It's not actually trapped there. He quickly fails that arm around again, then reaches down into that position to grab his weapon.

Suggested correction: This isn't a continuity mistake. The Triceratops forms the legs and are the wheels of the tank mode. That's the shot of the left leg of the tank mode's (i.e. the Triceratops) tracks rolling along the ground.

Food Fight - S1-E6

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)

Trivia: Portions of every episode are from a Japanese version of the show. Almost every episode in series 1 was two thirds Japanese footage, just voiced over. Saban used this Japanese footage to save on filming its own.
