Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers

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.

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.

Correction: There is a tunnel system built in so all the rangers can reach the main controls.

Yes there is a tunnel system but Kimberly is seen in her Zord before they merge. So how could she travel down the tunnel before her Zord joins the rest?

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.

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.

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.
