This article is about a/an two-part episode in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.

"I almost gave up on myself, Goldar, but your little picture show reminded me how good I’ve done. Not only as the Green Ranger but as me, plain ol’ Tommy."
Tommy Oliver summing up his time as the Green Ranger to Goldar.

Green No More is a two-parter episode and the twelfth and thirteenth episodes of the second season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.

It served the titular conclusion of the seven-episode Green No More arc and featured the ultimate fate of Tommy Oliver's Green Ranger powers.

Synopsis

Tommy learns his powers are at their very end and that he may only have one fight left. Meanwhile, Lord Zedd is using a Green Crystal to siphon off Tommy's powers to claim them for himself. He creates Turbanshell to force Tommy into action, so he can claim the last of his powers for his new Dark Rangers.

Plot

Part I

Tommy is dejectedly playing basketball. Kimberly walks up, and tells him that Jason told her he would be there. Kimberly asks Tommy how he is feeling. Tommy tells Kimberly that Alpha 5 is running a bio scan and he will know tomorrow. Kimberly suggests that maybe something else can be done for Tommy's powers, but Tommy doesn't want to get his hopes up. A transparent image of Tommy appears. Tommy and Kimberly are stunned but approach it. The image of Tommy tells him he’s from the future, and to not forget his communicator. The image of Tommy fades. Tommy realizes that he has received a warning from the future.

Meanwhile Lord Zedd is ready to implement his final plans in destroying the Green Ranger. Once the Green Ranger is no more the destruction of the other Power Rangers will follow.

Inside Angel Grove High School, Billy and Zack are walking together. Zack is worried about his cousin, Curtis, who was supposed to arrive that day. Zack and Billy soon find Curtis surrounded by several students. Curtis is dancing and enjoying all the attention. When Curtis approaches, Zack introduces him to Billy and Richie. Richie and Curtis hit it off and walk off together. Tommy joins Billy and Zack; they talk about what Tommy had seen earlier. Two trash barrels come rolling down the hall, almost hitting Tommy, Billy, and Zack. Bulk & Skull emerged from the barrels. The guys asK Bulk & Skull what happened. Bulk & Skull are too terrified to talk, and simply point down the hall. Billy, Zack, and Tommy turn around and see five new students walking down the hall. Bulk & Skull leave, claiming they need to find the Rangers' identities. The five new teens then terrorize another student, Stewart. Zack, Tommy, and Billy confront the new teens, who issue a threat and then leave. Tommy, Billy, and Zack help Stewart and give him his backpack back.

Lord Zedd who has been watching as things transpired finds the five new teenagers perfect to become his Dark Rangers. Goldar asks about the purpose of the crystal. Zedd tells him that it is slowly taking away the Green Rangers powers. Once he is no more the powers will be used for the destruction of the Command Center, and the Rangers.

The following day, in the Command Center, Tommy awaits the news about his powers with Alpha 5. Unfortunately, their latest attempt to recharge Tommy's powers has failed and Zordon tells him he only has enough power for one more fight. Tommy asks Zordon about the image he had seen the previous day. Zordon tells Tommy they are investigating it, but it is worth noting that the image of Tommy was not morphed. This puzzles Tommy who can’t think how he can win without his powers. Meanwhile, Kimberly, Billy, Jason, and Zack are enjoying the day at the beach. Trini isn't there because she is apparently staying with her grandmother, but according to Kimberly she is concerned about Tommy’s powers also. Kimberly is in the sand with Billy searching for seashells, and she finds a funky looking shell. Her shell hunt is interrupted when the five new teens arrive, and start threatening the Rangers. The new teens claim they will be ruling Angel Grove from now on. Zedd who is watching decides this the perfect time to summon his Dark Rangers. He uses his staff to send an electric charge to surround the new teens and they disappear. The Power Rangers wonder what happened to the new teens. Billy suggests that they go to the Command Center for some answers. The four teleport to the Command Center.

In the Otherworld, the five new teens are greeted by Lord Zedd. He tells them he has selected them to be his Dark Rangers. Goldar protests reminding him the Green Ranger still has strength. Zedd says he doesn’t have long because the Green Crystal is still draining his powers. He is confident that once he creates his latest monster and the rangers battle it Tommy will join in thereby taking the rest of his strength with him. Lord Zedd then creates his latest monster Turbanshell from Kimberly’s seashells.

The Rangers except Trini gather at the Command Center. Kimberly asks Tommy about his powers and he tells her he only has one good fight left. The viewing globe shows Turbanshell attacking Angel Grove. Zack and Jason are ready to go into battle. Tommy tells them he is ready as well. Trini teleports into the Command Center and Billy fills her in. Kimberly and Zack try to talk Tommy out of going, but when Zordon states that Turbanshell's power levels are exceptionally high Tommy insists. Zordon tells them the decision is up to Tommy. The Power Rangers morph and head into the city. Turbanshell is already giant and laying waste to Angel Grove, and the Rangers waste no time in summoning the Thunder Megazord as Green Ranger summons Dragonzord. The zords put up a hard fight against Turbanshell, however the monster is too powerful and easily keeps them at bay. He then summons his staff and blasts the Thunder Megazord and Dragonzord, defeating them both. The main five Rangers are ejected from the Thunder Megazord as Tommy meets them on the ground, as Turbanshell leaves triumphant.

Lord Zedd is explaining to Goldar his plans for when Green Ranger is powerless but Turbanshell interrupts him. Zedd is not happy to see him. Turbanshell apparently needed to recharge his powers, but he tells them he had the Rangers on the ropes. This doesn’t make things any better because he let them go when he had a chance to finish them. Zedd orders him back to Earth to keep fighting the Rangers until the Green Ranger’s powers are completely gone.

The Rangers are running through the park to the Green Ranger’s aid apparently he is getting even weaker. Suddenly, the Green Ranger disappears right before their eyes leaving them stunned. Green Ranger lands in a vast field and Turbanshell is there as well. The Green Ranger tries to fight but Turbanshell drains the last of the Green Ranger's powers. Powerless, Tommy hides.

The Green Ranger’s powers are now all trapped within Zedd’s Crystal. Now the final phase of Zedd’s plan has begun the elimination of the Power Rangers and the rise of his army the Dark Rangers.

The Rangers try to contact Zordon, but they are unable to. Moments later, they are teleported to the entrance of a cave. Jason, Zack, Billy, Kimberly, and Trini are encased in a force field. Lord Zedd and Goldar confront the teens and introduce the Dark Rangers to them. Jason tries to convince the Dark Rangers not to listen to Lord Zedd, that Lord Zedd only cares about himself. The Dark Rangers refuse to listen. Lord Zedd holds up a crystal that contains the Green Ranger's powers. He used it to cut off their connection with Zordon, and tells them Tommy will soon be defeated. Kimberly asks where Tommy is, but Lord Zedd tells her only that he is somewhere in this dimension but powerless now just like them. Meanwhile, Turbanshell is stalking Tommy, and Tommy tries to gather his wits as he hides behind a large rock not far from the monster.

Part II

Tommy comes out of his hiding place and faces Turbanshell. Tommy and Turbanshell battle. Tommy finds himself time and time again knocked to the ground by Turbanshell.

The Command Center is surrounded by an energy shield. Zordon and Alpha 5 cannot contact the Rangers. Alpha 5 receives more distressing news from the computer print, the energy shield is gradually becoming tighter and eventually the Command Center will implode.

Meanwhile, Zack, Jason, Billy, Kimberly, and Trini are still trapped in Lord Zedd's energy shield. Because they no longer have their morphers, Lord Zedd decides to return them, so they can helplessly watch Angel Grove get destroyed. The Rangers are returned to Angel Grove park. Jason tries to contact Zordon, but is unable to. Billy feels sure he can find a way to communicate with the Command Center and wants to go to his lab.

Elsewhere, Tommy is surprised when Goldar appears. Goldar tells Turbanshell he has been given the duty of destroying the Green Ranger and Turbanshell reluctantly leaves. Goldar then shows the dejected Tommy footage of when he was the powerful Green Ranger. Tommy finds it difficult to watch the footage of himself. Goldar Briefly returns to Zedd's Palace as Zedd revels in the Rangers' situation. He Also tells Goldar about Phase 2 of his plan: the Thunderzords will be reprogrammed for the Dark Rangers to use once they make their debut. In Angel Grove, Billy works on the device as Zack and Trini anxiously watch. The TV is on and soon shows footage of Turbanshell attacking the business district. The newscaster asks where the Power Rangers are. Jason and Kimberly enter and they watch the news in uneasy silence.

Goldar returns to the Otherworld and wants Tommy to admit that he is his superior. Tommy hesitates and then stumbles with the words. Goldar waits excitedly, encouraging Tommy to admit he is his superior. Tommy, very suddenly, tells Goldar he is out of his mind and battles Goldar once more. During the battle, Tommy manages to get hold of the time device, he admits he was ready to give up. But the video reminded him of all the good things he’d done as not only the Green Ranger, but of that as plain old Tommy Oliver as well. Tommy uses the device to send Goldar away. Standing alone, Tommy wonders what he should do next. He then realizes that he can the time device to contact himself in the past. As Tommy does so, lightning strikes the sky and An image of him appears. The image of past Tommy tells him it's a time warp and gives Tommy his communicator. Tommy uses it to teleport out of the Otherworld and back to Angel Grove.

Meanwhile, Billy works frantically, trying to reestablish communications between the Rangers and the Command Center. Tommy teleports to Billy's lab and everyone is happy to see him. Alpha 5 appears on the computer screen. In the background, Zordon tells them the green crystal must be destroyed and only a non-ranger can do it. Tommy volunteers to go, stating he has some payback. Tommy teleports to the Otherworld. Lord Zedd is telling the Dark Rangers that the Thunderzords have been reprogrammed and they and Goldar don't see Tommy until it's too late. Tommy smashes the green crystal which causes the Dark Rangers to demorph, and vanish. Tommy teleports back to Billy's lab in triumph, and the morphers are returned to the Rangers. Tommy tells them after touching the green crystal, he feels he has enough power for one more battle.

The Rangers morph and summon the Thunder Megazord, back under their control, to battle Turbanshell. However the fight goes even worse than before as Turbanshell unleashes a full assault on the Megazord causing massive damage. Turbanshell then withdraws into his shell and uses it to ram the Thunder Megazord directly, which causes the Rangers except for Jason to eject and the Zords to forcibly separate leaving just the Red Dragon Thunderzord. It attempts to battle itself, but is defeated just as quickly and forced back into its Dragon Mode. Just as Tommy is about to summon Dragonzord, Zordon contacts him and explains that Turbanshell needs to be attacked from within with heat, then freeze him from the outside. Tommy hides in a crate of watermelons which Turbanshell spots and, becoming hungry, eats. Tommy then begins firing a laser provided by Billy within Turbanshell's stomach. With Tommy doing his part, Zack picks up a fire hose and starts firing cold water at Turbanshell chilling the monster from outside. Turbanshell is severely weakened and ejects Tommy and the girls and Billy rush over to make sure he's ok. Once he confirms he is, the Zords come back online and the Rangers reform the Thunder Megazord. Now with Turbanshell weak, the Rangers make quick work of the monster and destroy it.

In the Youth Center, Tommy, Jason, Kimberly, Trini, Zack, and Billy are sitting at tables. Trini tells them the Dark Rangers have been returned to normal and have no memories of what had happened. The new teens then walk into the Youth Center and order five sodas. Kimberly thinks maybe they just need some friends. Jason, Kimberly, Trini, Zack, Billy, and Tommy walk up to the counter. Jason tells Ernie and Richie he will cover the tab. Jason faces the new teens and tells them he would like to start over again. The new teens agree and everyone introduces each other.

Later, in the Command Center, Zordon congratulates Tommy on a job well done. The Rangers thank Tommy and tell him he’s a true hero. Tommy explains them he was about give up but then he realized it wasn’t just the suit and powers that gave him strength but who he was inside was what really empowered him. Tommy tells the Rangers how he is going to miss them on school break, and they will always be in his heart. The teens place their hands in the center, for one last time, and then leap into the air, shouting Power Rangers.

Cast

Song

Notes

  • Part II marks the last time until Power Rangers Super Megaforce's "Legendary Battle" 20 years later that Tommy uses the Green Ranger powers.
    • Tommy was supposed to leave the show permanently like in "The Green Candle." However, fans demanded his return so Tommy would eventually become the White Ranger in "White Light."
  • Part II was the final episode until "The Wedding" to use Zyu2 footage and the final episode to use new and non-recycled Zyu2 footage.
  • The title of the episode is an obvious play on the metal band Faith No More.
    • Rumors circulated that there was a 26th Zyu2 episode featuring the Pythor monster which was made into a toy but never made a show appearance but this has never been confirmed.
      • Additionally, the fact that Jeff Pruitt has not released footage of Pythor nor mentioned his footage being lost has basically debunked this theory. Pythor is just a creation of the toy company.
  • Like with "The Green Candle" originally, this episode was supposed to bring an end to Tommy's time on the show but again, his popularity was so high that Jason David Frank was called back to the show and was given the role of the White Ranger, replacing the original choice of Brad Hawkins.
  • There was quite a bit of removed footage as usual.
    • Turbanshell fighting the Tyrannosaurus Dinozord in part I.
      • However, parts of the fight were re-purposed for the Red Dragon Thunderzord "fight."
    • TurbanShell giving the Tyrannosaurus the middle finger and then gang signs after defeating it (gif not included due to profanity).
    • An entire fight against the Dark Rangers which never made it past the script due to the suits looking pretty horrendous.
    • The Mastodon Dinozord using its ice breath to freeze TurbanShell which was replaced by the Mega Heater and hose segment.
    • The Dragonzord being summoned to temporarily fight TurbanShell after hye was frozen.
      • This was most likely cut because the episode drilled home the point that Tommy was just barely operating so wouldn't have the power to summon it.
  • TurbanShell's footage at human size is made exclusively in America and is not Zyu2 since he was filmed only as a giant in Japan and they merely shipped the suit.
  • Paul Schrier (Bulk) and Jason Narvy (Skull) do not appear in Part II, marking their first absence in the show's history.
  • Austin St. JohnWalter Jones and Thuy Trang had all stopped showing up for ADR sessions shortly before this point due to their falling out with Saban. As a result, in this episode, their lines while morphed were recycled from earlier episodes:
    • Jason's line "This dude's gonna be tougher than I thought!" is recycled from "Life's a Masquerade".
    • Jason's line calling for the Dinozords is recycled from "Big Sisters".
    • Jason's line "Come in, Zordon." is recycled from "Food Fight".
    • Zack's line "Man, I don't believe it." is recycled from "Something Fishy".
    • Zack's line "We need help." is recycled from "An Oyster Stew".
    • Zack's line ("Come on, guys. We can't give up. We're the Power Rangers!") was recycled from "Fowl Play".
    • Zack's line "Let me chill this dude." is recycled from "Teamwork."
    • Zack's "let's see how you like my deep freeze" line is recycled from "Itsy Bitsy Spider".
    • Trini's morphed dialogue ("let's show him some Megazord power!") is recycled from "Dark Warrior".
  • First time Lord Zedd is seen outside of the Moon Palace.
  • This episode marks the Rangers' first face-to-face encounter with Lord Zedd.
  • First appearance of Zack's cousin Curtis, who was intended to be a White Ranger red herring. He has become quite infamous for being a more annoying replacement for Zack down to both.
  • Part I marks the final time Tommy summons the Dragonzord.
  • Tommy is never actually seen losing his powers after the final battle against TurbanShell, the viewers just cut to him having lost his powers.
    • This contrasts with the first time he lost his powers in "The Green Candle" where they were openly shown dissipating.
  • A battle between the Rangers and Lord Zedd's Dark Rangers was planned to occur at the start of Part II. However this was scrapped when it was discovered that the suits were far too low-quality to survive filming a fight scene.
  • Most of the other Dark Rangers reveal their names in this episode. The yellow one is Tina, the red one is Justin, the black one is Zane, and the pink one is Hilary according to the closed captions (though she says her name is Stacie from what can be heard from the talk with Kimberly). Two of these names would be used for future Rangers, the Blue Turbo and Silver Space Rangers, although the Silver Ranger's name was spelled "Zhane". Only the Blue Dark Ranger's name was never revealed onscreen or in the captions, but the initial scripts have stated his name as Bobby.
  • In an earlier script draft for Part 2, after blasting TurbanShell's stomach and then escaping, Tommy was originally going to stay and call in the Dragonzord to help the Thunder Megazord finish off TurbanShell and use some Zyu2 footage. [1].
    • This was most likely changed because Tommy was writhing on the ground after escaping TurbanShell and was in no state to fight as well as the fact it would have been summoned only to stand around and maybe get blasted before the Thunder Saber destroyed TurbanShell.
      • This change actually makes more sense than it would if they kept this aspect (even ignoring the power loss aspect of this episode) since he just fell out of a monster taller than most buildings onto concrete and nearly passed out from heatstroke whilst inside the monster.
  • This is the last episode to play the song Go Green Ranger Go. It would eventually be replaced by White Ranger Tiger Power in "White Light."
  • The hose Zack uses on TurbanShell was originally the Mastodon Zord shooting ice from its trunk but had to be replaced with a hose due to the fact that the Dinozords weren't being used anymore.
  • Zordon had chosen five Rangers to save the world, while Lord Zedd ironically chose five Rangers to destroy it and this is even said by Zedd himself.
  • There is a number of references to Green With Evil;
    • Zedd referring to his more powerful Evil Rangers than Tommy (also in the process referencing the Season 1 episodes "A Bad Reflection on You" and "Mighty Morphin' Mutants."
    • Goldar outright asking Tommy if he is "green with envy" at losing his powers in part II.
      • Although this may just be a coincidence, the title of that iconic episode is a play on that widely used phrase.
  • On Goldar's energy screen in the sky seen in part II, it shows;
    • The Putty fight from the episode "Bloom of Doom."
    • Tommy and Trini fighting the Invenusable Flytrap from the episode "Welcome to Venus Island."
      • Another fun bit of initial trivia is that, if one has read the notes for that episode, this is the fight scene between the three of them that was cut due to very visible buildings and even a fountain in the background.
    • A shot of Tommy posing that never made it into the episode "The Green Candle-part II" due to it being from a scene that had the very visible Spirit of Life Clotho (a small Japanese girl).
    • A shot of Tommy flipping out of the sky which was actually from "Green With Evil-part I" when he jumped into the Dino Megazord and knocked them out for his first battle.
    • The shots of the Dragonzord emerging from Angel Grove Bay from the episode "Green With Evil part V" although the shots are mirror flipped.

Errors

Shared Errors

  • The title of both parts gives away the ending where Tommy loses his powers.
  • Neither "Today On" segment references Curtis' debut despite being an important red herring.
  • Lord Zedd has to use the Green Crystal despite Kimberly saying that “Lord Zedd’s trying to put us under a spell” (i.e. trying to drain their powers) in the episode "The Power Stealer" without it.
  • The Otherworld is literally the caves outside Angel Grove with no attempt made to disguise it.
  • Two of the Dark Rangers were not the right color. Zane (the Black Ranger) was gray and Kristen (the Pink Ranger) was orange.
  • Throughout both parts, both the middle and bottom of Zedd's staff can clearly be seen covered in both masking and sellotape.
    • The first occurrence of this, which occurs near the end of part I when Zedd says "I also have chosen five, my Dark Rangers, to destroy it!", has become one of the most infamous errors in the show's history.
  • In both part I and the recap of part II, Zack says “we’re gonna need major Zord power to stop him.” However, he clearly says two words after this yet no sound is produced.
    • This is especially strange since Walter Jones was very clearly around to film for this episode so this wasn't a dubbing error like these usually mean.

Part I

  • In the teaser for part I, the narrator says "Zedd sets a plan into motion to destroy Green Ranger for good" despite the fact that his idea was just to de-power Tommy.
  • The teaser for part I doesn't mention the appearances of Curtis or the people who would become the Dark Rangers.
  • The opening shot shows the empty (except for cars) parking lot of the Youth Center but the follow-up has Tommy standing in the middle of it.
  • Kimberly asks Tommy if he is okay despite him clearly looking depressed.
  • Kimberly tells Tommy that Zordon could restore his powers despite the previous episode having Alpha outright say that they couldn't.
    • Even though Power Rangers has extremely loose continuity, this blatantly takes place after "The Song of Guitardo" since Tommy has lost his powers by the end of this episode.
  • Tommy says that Zedd has been after me ever since he took over Rita’s place despite the fact that, between "The Mutiny-part II" and "Bloom of Doom", he was not specifically targeted.
    • Also, Tommy tells Kimberly despite the fact she'd already know that.
  • Neither Kimberly nor Tommy are surprised by the hologram of Tommy.
  • Kimberly asks what the hologram was despite it pretty plainly giving an ominous warning.
  • The establishing shot for the first scene with Zedd has an empty balcony but Goldar is standing on it two shots later.
  • Zack worries about where Curtis is despite his cousin blaring pop music.
  • The entire corridor in Angel Grove High just drop whatever they were doing to watch Curtis dance.
  • When Curtis is dancing, the first shot of him has him on the far right of the distant shot. However, when we get a close-up, he is near two girls in the center of the distant shot.
    • Also, between those shots, a person in blue and a person in yellow vanish.
  • The delivery of Curtis' line "now this is what I call the beginning of a beautiful friendship" is butchered. It comes out like It comes out sounding more like "nowthyis what I call a begin ingofa beautifult friend****."
  • Billy said "Kimberly told us what happened outside" when they met Tommy in Angel Grove High. This is despite the fact that the opening shot of the episode was of the Youth Center, implying that Kimberly met him outside of that building.
  • At the rate that the barrels containing Bulk and Skull were rolling at the three Rangers at, it would have hit them before Zack could warn them.
  • When Bulk and Skull exit those barrels, Bulk's head pop out of the end despite not popping out in the first shot so it just jumpcuts like it was always out.
    • Also, there is a popping sound like the ends of the barrels popped out but this is never shown.
  • The teen that the Dark Rangers snatch the backpack of (named Stewart by Billy) is clearly thirty years old.
  • Zedd calls the Dark Rangers his "superheroes."
  • Goldar clearly doesn't have the Green Crystal when Zedd chooses his Dark Rangers but has it in the follow-up.
    • The fact that he then asks about the Green Crystal suggests that he didn't just teleport it in.
  • After Goldar asks about the crystal, we get a close-up of Zedd on the balcony and Goldar has vanished as seen at the very start of the shot.
  • Tommy calls the message from his future self "a vision." This is despite the fact that it was not exclusive to himself (since Kimberly also saw it) and that it was only his future self given a message and not a demonstration of future events like the Millennium Message three years later.
  • Zordon says that the Tommy in the message was in the middle of a battle despite no way of telling besides the mention of a final battle. For all he knew, it came after the final battle and this was a message warning of it.
    • Also, Zordon then immediately assumed that Tommy lost his powers since he was unmorphed when he could have been conserving his powers.
  • Kimberly calls the shell that eventually became TurbanShell "funky" despite the only remarkable thing about it being that it was slightly larger than normal.
    • Also, TurbanShell was created from a hermit crab shell despite them being at the lake and hermit crabs only being around the sea.
  • When we get a close up of Justin as he says the Rangers will start to consider him and his entourage the heads of Angel Grove, Kristen and Bobby vanish despite standing right next to him.
  • When the five punks are teleported away, the Rangers are stumped despite teleportation very much being a thing well established by this point.
  • Zedd creates TurbanShell from an inanimate shell which contradicts what was plainly stated in the previous episode.
  • Zack immediately assumes that TurbanShell is tough and they'll need all the Zords to defeat him based soely on the fact that he smashed a building (something that even Shellshock was able to do). The same thing happened a bit later on with Jason when TurbanShell smashed a building to show how much he'd destroy the Rangers.
    • Also, Zack then immediately backtracks on just saying that this requires all of the Zords and says Tommy should save his powers.
  • Zack says he doesn't believe something although what is never made clear since he has seen multiple monsters smash buildings in the past.
  • TurbanShell very clearly rampages in a model city.
  • Before summoning thier Zords, the Rangers react to Turbanshell like he is looming over them. This is despite the fact that, not only does he move around and they don’t look away, but that shot doesn’t show anywhere that they could be with those buildings.
  • After TurbanShell smashed that building, Zack stated "we need help." and then continued gesturing as if he was still talking despite the fact he had already stopped.
    • Also, right after that, there was a boom sound effect despite the fact that nothing had exploded and TurbanShell had not blasted the city yet.
  • The Rangers are hit by debris from TurbanShell's eye blasts despite the fact that the previous shot's buildings do not match the ones in the "The Mutiny" stock footage.
  • When the Rangers summon the Thunderzords, Jason distinctly says, "We need Dinozord power, now!"
  • When the Thunder Megazord poses after forming, it is in the countryside and not the city.
  • The Rangers tell the Thunder Megazord to activate it's systems twice, once when they say "Thunder Megazord, power up" and again whilst TurbanShell is charging where they say "Thunder Megazord, battle ready."
  • When TurbanShell rammed into the Thunder Megazord, it stumbles back in the countryside.
  • When the Thunder Megazord is hit by TurbanShell's spiral blast, day suddenly turns to night because they used footage from the future "Rocky Just Wants to Have Fun."
  • When the Thunder Megazord topples over from that blast, it is suddenly back in the countryside.
  • Billy and Kimberly yell in shock as they fall from the Thunder Megazord but Jason, Zack and Trini are utterly silent.
  • Kimberly points out that TurbanShell teleported away despite that being very obvious.
  • Tommy teleports to the park and not the Command Center.
    • This was before they learnt that it was encased in a forcefield and the dialogue does not suggest that he tried and failed to go there first.
  • Kimberly asks Tommy if he is okay whilst he is kneeling on the floor and clutching his chest.
  • Zack says "come on guys, we can't give up! We're the Power Rangers!" Not only does this have nothing to do with the situation but this situation wouldn't be solved by a confidence boost.
    • Also, Zack says "guys" when he is only addressing Tommy.
      • Additionally, there are massive pauses between each part of the sentence since the editor was clearly trying to cut out the sound effects from "Fowl Play" and forgot to edit it together again.
  • After Tommy is kidnapped, Turbanshell speaks to the Rangers despite the fact that he is supposed to be in the Otherworld with Tommy.
  • Rather than teleporting to the Command Center to help find Tommy, the Rangers just stand there and gawk until Zedd captures them.
  • Billy reacts to Zedd's lightning teleporting them away before the lightning starts to strike.
  • Zedd says the name "Dark Rangers" six or seven times in front of the captured Power Rangers alone as if they wouldn't have heard him before.
  • TurbanShell proclaims that he will find Tommy in one of the last lines of the episode despite facing Tommy as he scrambled behind a rock.

Part II

  • The "Last Time" segment fails to mention the failed Zord fight as well as the fact that Zedd is holding most of the Rangers hostage.
  • Turbanshell's voice is of a noticeably higher pitch in Part II than it is in Part I.
  • When Tommy falls into the trench near the start, he starts off falling to the side but the follow-up has him falling on his back.
  • After taking back his staff from Tommy, Turbanshell throws Tommy legs first but the follow-up shows him going headfirst and the third shot has him going feet first again.
    • The use of shots meant to be security seems to be a recurring trope of John Stewart's directing seeing as this occurs at least once every episode he directs for Mighty Morphin for some reason.
  • Zedd decides to send the Power Rangers to Earth instead of destroying them despite part of his goal for the episode was to finish them off after de-powering Tommy.
    • Also, his justification for this was that they'd be helpless despite the fact that, even without the Command Center, Billy is a genius.
      • Additionally, he says that they would be powerless despite the fact that the Power Morphers are only useless in the Otherworld (which Angel Grove isn't in) and the fact that the Power Coins are not reliant on the Command Center to operate.
  • Zack says that the only way to save the city was to contact the Command Center despite the fact that literally nothing stops them from morphing since Tommy's powers are not the reason for their own.
  • When TurbanShell teleports after being ordered to leave by Goldar, the types of shells used in his teleportation effect are different from the ones in part I.
  • The screen in the sky shows deleted footage from "Welcome to Venus Island" so how did Goldar get it if it didn't happen in-universe?
    • Also, after the viewers cut away from that angle, Goldar is suddenly right behind Tommy he was in front of him two shots before.
  • When Billy inputs the data from his communicator into his computer, the viewers can clearly see that it’s not even plugged in since the viewers can see there is no wire going around the back of the computer.
    • Also, when he actually types, he has what some have dubbed "bad acting typing." It's the super fast acting there someone types the keys so lightly that the key presses wouldn’t even register.
  • Billy says that his communicator got a lock on the forcefield and Trini immediately asked if it could destroy the forcefield.
  • The newscaster says "local government sources have confirmed that the creature known as TurbanShell has begun another attack on Angel Grove." This literally means that they needed the government to tell them of the rampage by the giant mollusk monster.
  • When TurbanShell is shown on the TV, he is clearly in a model city.
    • This is actually the same footage as pointed out as an error in part I which was re-used since they had almost no actual footage of TurbanShell.
  • Zack is very nonchalant and even pops jokes at the giant monster which they are apparently helpless to stop.
    • Zack is the comic relief but doesn't sound at all worried about the defenceless city.

"Business district"

  • The newscaster says that the attack is taking taking place in the business district. However, if the scale is to believe, every building is about two miles apart from one another.
  • The newscaster says that its been "less than twenty four hours since its first attack.” While accurate, the time scale of the episode implies that its only been an hour since TurbanShell left.
    • Also, the newscaster says that the attack was "repulsed by the Power Rangers" when in fact the Rangers lost miserably and TurbanShell left to recharge.
      • Even if they couldn't hear why he left, there is no way that they didn't see the Power Rangers lose and get ejected.
  • A shot of TurbanShell frozen is shown on the TV way ahead of context and makes no sense being here.
  • The newscaster says that “the origins of the monster are a mystery” despite the fact that they've mentioned Rita Repulsa several times on the news and clearly know of her.
  • Goldar is seen with Zedd at the Moon Palace despite the fact that he is busy taunting Tommy in the Otherworld.
  • Tommy knocked Goldar's sword away in the Otherworld, then teleported him away before he could retrieve it, but Goldar is still carrying the sword when he and Zedd review the Dark Rangers.
  • The Red Dragon Thunderzord summons its staff before attempting to take on TurbanShell (something the monster even comments on) but it disappears when the Zord is hit by the eye beams.
  • After the Red Dragon Thunderzord is defeated, Jason utterly disappears from the battle until the Thunder Megazord is reformed.
  • When TurbanShell blasts the Red Dragon Thunderzord with its eye beams, the head of the Tyrannosaurus Dinozord can be seen in the middle of the explosion.
  • When TurbanShell hunches up into a ball and hurls itself at the Thunder Megazord, the original Megazord can be seen in the middle of the explosion when the monster makes contact with it.
  • Tor the Shuttlezord can be seen in the left corner of the screen when the Red Dragon Thunderzord sparks after the Thunder Megazord disassembles after TurbanShell's attack.
  • The Mega Heater is introduced right out of nowhere with no explanation as a massive deus-ex-machina.
  • Apparently, friendship was all the Dark Ranger teens needed to become good people despite the fact that they were all already friends with each other.
