  1. What's new in this club
  2. It's been WAY too long, but at long last, here are some more trope examples! / https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/SoulJar: Radiguet uses the "Warhammer 40,000" variant, in order to beat and seal the Chaos God T'zeen'tch, in a villainous version of "Did You Just Punch Out Cthulu?", in order to gain and use his powers as his own! And by doing so, he has trapped the powers, the body, and the soul, of T'zeen'tch, inside of a Waystone! In order to prevent the Waystone from becoming an "Artifact of Doom", Radiguet fashioned himself a Glove of Power, so that he could safely USE T'zeen'tch's powers, without becoming corrupted by T'zeen'tch's soul and/or personality. If the Waystone is ever destroyed, T'zeen'tch would be gone as well. Chronomancy: Captain Retro reveals he is capable of this, and reveals he IS able to go to the past, but only to a time period where he hasn't BEEN to already! Captain Retro reveals that the reason for this, is because you can't run the risk of meeting your PAST self, because you run the risk of breaking reality, and nullifying all of existence! Even Captain Retro doesn't like to use these powers, unless Clifford tells him that he needs to do so. For example, Captain Retro will use these powers, in case he needs to "Set Right What Once Went Wrong." An unfortunate side-effect of time traveling to the past, is that it causes time-ripple wave effects in the present/future. That leads to... Ret-Con/Ret-Gone: Captain Retro reveals that by traveling to the past, de-powering M.O.D.O.K., and saving the lives of Ramone Fleeceley and Prince Maniac, it would in turn, manage to Ret-Con the lives of Toby and Ebony, back into existence. BUT, there would be a catch to that! Due to the time-ripple wave effects of changing the past, it would ALTER Toby's and Ebony's personalities, making Toby less arrogant, and Ebony more of a "Shrinking Violet". And with their alternate personalities, they would have NEVER been selected to have BEEN Rangers in the first place, causing a "Cessation of Existence" for the OLD personalities of Toby and Ebony, and ERASING the memories of the old Toby and Ebony, for everyone EXCEPT Captain Retro and StarHawk (since they are the ones who CAUSED the Ret-Con/Ret-Gone to happen), and Sans, since he can remember any and all alternate time-lines that happen! Stating the Simple Solution: Strangely enough, it's StarHawk who manages to come up with an easier way to get into M.O.D.O.K.'s Prison Cell in New Tech City, in the year 2028. Instead of going through the lengthy process of infiltrating Dr. Maniac's lair in order to catch two Mecha-Clones, they simply grab the first two Mecha-Clones they can find, so they can re-program them when they need to! Captain Retro initially thinks that: "It CAN'T be that simple!" Cue a "Gilligan Cut", to Captain Retro and StarHawk entering M.O.D.O.K.'s prison, and StarHawk says: "It's THAT simple!" Eldritch Abomination/Our Ghosts Are Different: Seems to be the case for Alma Wade. Not only is she capable of harnessing a "Downplayed" version of the powers and energies of an Eldritch Abomination, she is also a ghost, who has turned herself into (most of the time), a little girl, who is made up of psychic energy. She is also capable of "Reality Warping Powers," and uses them to FREE Justin from being held prisoner by M.O.D.O.K., in a case of "Throw the Dog a Bone". Not So Different: During Alma's "Curb-Stomp Battle" against Dr. Maniac, Kaolite, and Villuy, while she's giving them an epic "The Reason You Suck" Speech, she does admit that Dr. Maniac and herself aren't that different from each other, and that Dr. Maniac shares many similarities with her father. The one difference she notes, is that while they both hate living creatures, Alma has some living creatures she cares very much for! Namely, Omnus and the current Power Rangers serving him, especially Usagi! Although, it's implied that because she's a ghost made up of psychic energy, she has capable of understanding emotions, in an example of "What is this thing you call, Love?" Alive All Along/Stable Time Loop: When Captain Retro and StarHawk return to the present in 2178, they reveal that Ramone Fleeceley and Prince Maniac were alive all along, due to the Stable Time Loop that they created, in order to ENSURE that Ramone and Prince Maniac would survive, and not be KILLED back in the year 2028! Captain Retro had to take them BACK to the year 2178, in order to ENSURE that the Stable Time Loop would not fall apart for any reason whatsoever! Shoot the Dangerous Minion/Villain Has a Point: It is revealed that Radiguet already KNOWS how dangerous and unstable Dr. Maniac has become, and how Dr. Maniac NOW wants to target Radiguet himself! Although Radiguet knows he is fully capable of handling Dr. Maniac by himself, due to a prior commitment he has made for himself, Radiguet instead, decides to give the Power Rangers full permission to "Shoot the Dangerous Minion". Although Lettuce immediately suspects that this might be playing into Radiguet's hands, Captain Retro reveals that unfortunately, the "Villain Has a Point". They can't allow Dr. Maniac to run around anymore, or else, Dr. Maniac will just continue to resort to more and more desperate ways of trying to KILL all the Rangers, and any innocent people who get in his way! So, they HAVE to Shoot the Dangerous Minion, regardless of whether Radiguet wants them to do it or not. / That's all the tropes for today! Enough said, true believers!
  3. Here are some more tropes, in no particular order. Badass Longcoat: Blackhawk tends to wear these in season 2 now (given his characterization from "Heroes and Villains" onward borrows many tropes from spaghetti westerns, especially those by Clint Eastwood. this is very appropriate), complete with a Nice Hat. The future Aquila inherits these traits from him. Firehawk also wears these. Badass Gay: Kira and Undyne especially. The Cynic: A number of these have shown up in "Power Rangers: Multiverse Force" season 2; appropriate given the more dark tone. Antiquated Linguistics: Blackhawk tends to speak like this sometimes since one of his primary languages is High Speech, the language of the gunslingers. Ass Shove: Pinkie does this with her plasma pistol when tied up in "Reborn: Part II"; she mentions it's uncomfortable. Cool Sword: Saba is meant to be this. Too bad Blackhawk doesn't think so (and even goes as far as peeing on it). Drugs Are Bad: Ebony and Toby embody this. Their relationship was built on vice and sin, and it didn't lead to good things. Double Standard - Abuse, Female on Male: Averted with Toby and Ebony; while it wasn't shown explicitly, their relationship was very toxic, with Ebony effectively manipulating and heavily implied emotionally abusing Toby with marijuana and promises of sex, culminating in them both betraying the Rangers. In his "Reason You Suck" Speech, Toby finally stands up for himself and calls her out. Dumb Blonde: Both averted, joked about, and downplayed with Usagi. While she is far from stupid and is a very capable leader, she still has her ditzy moments from time to time. Kras'hir makes a lighthearted crack about it in "Know no Fear". Evil is Cool: Discussed in one episode between Blackhawk and his mother while watching The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly; Mrs. Little roots more for the villains than the heroes. Blackhawk disagrees. Smoking is Cool/Good Smoking, Evil Smoking: Blackhawk, Starhawk, and Firehawk especially tend to smoke like chimneys, Blackhawk especially since (again) he borrows a lot of tropes from Spaghetti Westerns and Firehawk since she has a few characteristics akin to a 1940s noir character. In terms of evil smoking, you have the Nazis and Vipera. New Age Retro Hippie: Thanks to hanging around Lazlo and his group of friends, Lettuce has elements of this now (and Word of God confirms that in the aftermath of "Lettuce Manchot, PI", he converted to Discordianism; this is an element that will be explored in his character arc). Medium Awareness: Pinkie, of course; also implied of Captain Retro, though he likely doesn't tell the others for fear of their minds not being able to handle it. Meta Guy: Captain Retro, again. Ms. Fanservice: Most notably, Ebony (overlapping with Femme Fatale), Starhawk, Firehawk, and Usagi. Heel Realization: Toby has one in "Know no Fear"; too bad it doesn't convince Alma not to seal him into her pocket dimension. Ho Yay: Blackhawk and Roland have a moment like this when Susan-in-the former's-body kisses Roland. Pocket Dimension: Captain Retro resides in one; Alma is a goddess of one; and hammerspaces are effectively this. Platonic Life Partners: Omnus and Amberley are this post-return for the latter, in no small part to them having romantic partners. Blackhawk and Usagi also have elements of this. Refusal of the Call: Blackhawk does not seem to enjoy his position as the Gold Ranger once he gets his powers from the Guardians. He would rather solve his problems by shooting them. Textual Celebrity Resemblance: Roland, just like in The Dark Tower, is said to resemble Clint Eastwood; while Blackhawk doesn't resemble Eastwood himself, his voice and mannerisms are said by Word of God to be based on Clint's characters such as The Man With No Name. There is No "B" in Movie: Blackhawk enjoys cheesy Spaghetti Westerns without any hint of irony. And he will fully admit it. The Lost Lenore: Until he fell in love with Starhawk, Margarita was this for Blackhawk. Susan is this for Roland, and until she returned, Amberley Vail was this for Omnus (who by that point had moved onto Hedrian).
  4. I've got a few new tropes to add in that I haven't added in before. I hope you like them. / https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/GoLookAtTheDistraction: Almost said verbatim by Usagi to Sans in “Follow You, Follow Me.” When Usagi was having Sans be her personal butler (it makes sense in context), it was fine at first, until Sans proved to be TOO good at it (“Gone Horribly Right”), by doing things Usagi DIDN'T want him to do! Usagi tried to tell him to stop, by Sans thought that Usagi was just testing him. When Usagi tried to walk away from Sans, Sans STILL followed her! And the only thing Usagi could think of, to give herself enough time to get away from Sans and be alone, was to shout: “Look at the distraction!” Although, it actually DOES make sense as a Justified trope, since Sans IS originally from the underworld, and things that are bizarre to MOST people, are just average things for Sans. So Usagi decided to just say something generic, and hoped that Sans' mind would fill in the blank of what would be distracting (“I Need a Distraction”), enough, for Sans to look away from her! Amazingly enough, it WORKED! Not that it KEPT Sans from finding Usagi wherever she hid or whatever she tried to disguise herself as. https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BizarroUniverse: The Dark, Mirror Dimension that the Rangers visit in “The Land of Confusion” two-part episode counts as this. And while the Chaos Realm could definitely fit the definition of this, “YMMV” as to whether or not it counts as its own universe, or whether its just a separate section of the “PRMVF” universe. https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AlmightyIdiot: Radiguet believes that the Chaos Gods, and Emperor Diabolica himself are this. Even though he knows that they are all impressively strong in their own right, he believes that they are absolutely STUPID compared to himself, and don't use their skills or powers effectively the way he would. https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/DidYouActuallyBelieve: Radiguet pulled an especially HARSH one on the “Good” personality half of Alma in “Vision Quest Part I”, after she summoned Radiguet into Ace's dead body, by reviving it with Radiguet's spirit hijacking it! (“Hijacked by Ganon/Grand Theft Me”). When Alma told Radiguet she KNEW he truly loved him, Radiguet delivered the “Wham Line”, “Oh, if only somebody truly DID love you, you STUPID little fool!” And in general, whenever Radiguet is NOT performing an action that is “For the Evulz” like “Kicking the Dog”, this is his general modus operandi for dealing with anyone foolish enough or stupid enough to help him carry out his plans! https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ItSeemedLikeAGoodIdeaAtTheTime: The Power Rangers reasoning that taking out Alma with a nuclear weapon would be the best way to get rid of her, as a form of “There's No Kill Like Overkill”. However, seeing as how she survived, it clearly WASN'T a good idea in the end. https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TakeAThirdOption: This is BlackHawk's general modus operandi when it comes to combat situations. Whenever faced with two sadistic options that a villain gives him, he always takes one they DON'T present, which is always BETTER for BlackHawk in the end! D.O.G., actually pulled this off in “Shock the Monkey”, by convincing Psygorn to transform D.O.G., instead of Clam or Lazlo, into an anthropomorphic creature, as part of a “Batman Gambit”. Because D.O.G., was an Eltarian Canine (“Bizarre Alien Biology”), he KNEW the transformation effect would NOT turn him evil, the way it sadly did for Raj. https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BeingHumanSucks: In “Vision Quest Part I”, when Pinkie was being difficult about receiving a lesson from Alma, Captain Retro threatened to have the Magi-Mother turn her into a human if she REFUSED to cooperate. Seeing as how Pinkie Pie quickly changed her tune and decided to listen to Alma, it is clear that as far as Pinkie Pie is concerned, it would royally SUCK to be a human! https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TemptingFate: Back when Vipera used to work for Emperor Diabolica, she would often accuse him of always tempting fate, when he said that a plan of his would be GUARANTEED to work against the Power Rangers! You can guess how often THAT claim would end up being proven true for him; ZERO! https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ThisIsGonnaSuck: Word of God says, that BlackHawk had this reaction when he realized that the only way to stop the vicious cycle of Roland trying to stop the Crimson King at the Tower, was to temporarily kill himself (since for BlackHawk, “Death is Just a Slap on the Wrist”), in order to reach Roland and his friends there. Even though BlackHawk knew that he was going to come back to life, it still sucked for him, because killing himself (even if it was temporary), still HURT, like HECK!!!! https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Understatement: While this is mostly used for comedy and played straight in this series, in “Genesis of Good, Genesis of Evil”, it was actually averted when Captain Retro told the Power Rangers how BAD it would be if Radiguet ever got his hands on the combined powers of all the Chaos Gods. What he said was actually the antithesis of an understatement, because Radiguet is not a guy that can be messed around with! https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AbhorrentAdmirer: Ebony, didn't do any favors for herself or her popularity with the other Rangers, when she broke up with BlackHawk twice, and started messing around with Toby! It got even WORSE when they did a “Face-Heel Turn”, and started working for Vipera! By the time Alma came around to punish Ebony and Toby with “Fates Worse Than Death”, Ebony had devolved to the point where she had become an abhorrent admirer, even by Toby's standards! https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/NotAZombie: Subverted and averted in both “Virtual Insanity” and “Weekend at Ebony's”, in that both times the Rangers faced the Zombie Imps, and in the latter case, Zombee, they instantly realized they were zombie monsters, and that the only way to destroy a zombie was to remove the head! / I hope you enjoyed reading them as much as I did researching them. Enough said!
  5. Also, here are at the very least a couple more tropes that will define PR: MVF for the next few episodes, as well as the rest of the season. Character Arc: Lettuce will go through a small one (which started with "Lettuce Manchot, PI" and will conclude in "Yes Destiny") focusing on his attempts to redeem himself with Pinkie and Kira. Dramedy: "Power Rangers: Multiverse Force" has become this, though starting with the "State of Shock" two parter by 4EverGreen, elements from season 1 will be mixed in. End of an Era: By Word of God, "Know no Fear" is this to the tail end of season 1 and the majority of season 2, which was darker and moved away from the Monster of the Week-driven plots of season 1 to a more character and dialogue-driven style (which partly brings about the "Revisiting the Roots" trope, see "Real Life Writes the Plot"). Friendly Enemy/Go-Karting With Bowser: Queen Beryl will act as this to the Rangers, especially towards Usagi; when not trying to gather energy for her youma, she'll often be hanging out with them. Kudzu Plot: As a result of having three writers on board, the series has (unfortunately) become this. Lighter and Softer: Somewhat. "State of Shock" will start the rest of the season onto this path, but the more vital and darker bits of season 2 (The Necrons, Nazis, Alma, etc.) still remain in the background. Meaningful Name: The "Reborn" arc is meaningful in three ways: it focuses on Firehawk returning from the dead, a restructuring of the team that turns her and Starhawk into the Black and Blue Rangers respectively, and the transition from season 2's writing style to a combination of season 1's and 2's (Monster of the Week plots, but still with a focus on character drama rather than pure action). Real Life Writes the Plot: The more longer episodes written by Greyknight and I ultimately ended up being too much for the server to handle. Retcon: "State of Shock" will acknowledge this trope by name and deconstruct it, as well as "Ret Gone". Revisiting the Roots: As a result of "Real Life Writes the Plot",(at least partly, the intention of "Reborn" to "Know no Fear" is to act as a transition into this) the rest of season 2 will be this, focusing on the team as they battle Queen Beryl and Vipera in a deliberate throwback to mid-to-late season 1's dynamic. Soft Reboot: "State of Shock" will act as this, acknowledging season 2's past events thus far, but bring the focus back to the Multiverse Force as a team of heroes fighting weekly monsters.
  6. A God I Am Not: Captain Retro assures Starhawk that he isn't a god at the start of "Know no Fear" when he explains his powers to her. And I Must Scream: Ebony and Toby are subjected to this in a non-lethal form of Dropped A Bridge on Him (a culmination of events begun in the "Reborn" arc) via Alma sealing them into her "Almaverse". The Ageless: Blackhawk is this; though he is technically ancient as a result of being associated with Roland's quest for the Tower, he appears to be eternally 16 appearance-wise. Adapted Out: The two Dark Tower characters not to appear with Roland's ka-tet in "Know no Fear" are Eddie Dean and Oy the billy bumbler. Justified; this is another part of the loop Roland had to endure with companions coming and going each and every time it reset. After the End: the Bad Future Aquila comes from is implied to be this. All-World, the place where Roland and his ka-tet come from, is most definitely this. Bad Future: As mentioned before, Aquila comes from one. Though the start of "Know no Fear" expands on it, explaining what exactly went on. Back From the Dead: Although Usagi returned to life near the end of "Lettuce Manchot, PI", "Know no Fear" begins with the other Rangers finding this out and reuniting with her. Blackhawk does this as well after his deliberate Heroic Suicide (It Makes Sense in Context, see below under "Eternal Recurrence" and "Groundhog Day Loop"). Batman Gambit: Blackhawk engineers one in "Know no Fear", deliberately killing himself so he can enter All-World and convince Roland to abandon his quest for the Dark Tower. On a larger, more cosmic and villainous scale overlapping heavily with Xanatos Gambit, the Crimson King engineered Roland's quest to be this, constantly resetting time to the point where Roland begins his quest (as seen at the end of volume seven of The Dark Tower novels). Badass Adorable: Jake Chambers from the Dark Tower series joins the roster once he and the rest of Roland's ka-tet come to Coastal Falls in "Know no Fear". Sassy Black Woman: Susannah is this. Beauty is Never Tarnished: Carrie when drunk is mentioned to still look cute by Usagi in "Know no Fear". Cliffhanger: "Know no Fear" ends on one. Deadpan Snarker: Mentioned by Usagi in "Know no Fear" as something Aquila inherited from Blackhawk and Starhawk. Demonic Possession: Frisk undergoes one. Eternal Recurrence: Roland is (or was, once Blackhawk brings him to Coastal Falls) destined to constantly journey to the Dark Tower over and over again. The cycle is finally broken in "Know no Fear". Eaten Alive: Ebony's fate (see "And I Must Scream" above) once brought to the Almaverse is to be constantly eaten by eldritch horrors, regenerating only to be eaten again in an endless loop. Friends with Benefits: Lettuce and Patsy now have this relationship. Generation Xerox: Aquila is essentially a composite of both her parents. Gender Reveal: Chara from Undertale is female in the PR: MVF continuity. Gone Horribly Right: Drako learns this the hard way in "Know no Fear". Go Mad From the Isolation: Toby, in contrast to Ebony, is sealed in a Void Between the Worlds, all alone. His eternal punishment is essentially the result. Good Bad Girl: Patsy and possibly Carrie are implied to be this. Groundhog Day Loop: See "Eternal Recurrence"; the trope namer is referenced, albeit indirectly. Killed through His Stomach: Drako, courtesy of Paxton Fettel in "Know no Fear" Hard-Drinking Party Girl: Carrie resolves to become one. Hollywood Exorcism: Omnus performs one on Frisk in "Know no Fear". Long-Lost Relative: Overlapping with Canon Welding, Carrie White and Chara turn out to be Alma's daughters. Multiple Choice Past: Blackhawk has this, the result being described as "ambiguous and contradictory". Odd Friendship: The friendship between Lettuce and Heinz Guderian can be considered this; one is not only a Power Ranger, but a talking penguin. The other is a former (albeit repentant) Nazi Old Soldier who managed to kill Hitler via poisoning. Pocket Dimension: The "Almaverse" is this, as is wherever Captain Retro's station is. Parental Substitute: As in Dark Tower canon, Roland to Jake. This time, however, Carrie also sees Roland as this. Not Worth Killing: Alma decides this is Toby's fate after he gives a "Reason You Suck" Speech to Ebony; instead, he is forced to be alone for eternity. Ragtag Bunch of Misfits: Paxton has this opinion of Roland's ka-tet. Ripple-Effect Proof Memory: Blackhawk has this, being able to remember each and every part of his multiple choice past with remarkable clarity. Sequel Episode: "Know no Fear" is this to "Fear no Evil". She Is All Grown Up: The narration implies this of Chara in "Know no Fear". Same with Patsy from Camp Lazlo. The Reason You Suck Speech: A few are given in "Know no Fear", most notably Usagi to Undyne and Toby to Ebony. True Companions: What the ka-tet actually are, also extends to the Rangers.
  7. Aaaaaand here's ya boy Renegade coming back at you with more tropes! Well, as many as I can find right now, anyway. Author's Saving Throw: The "Reborn" three-parter does this in regards to the "lesbian hex" Starhawk used as an excuse for her questionable relationship (and that is all we'll say on the matter) due to, according to Word of God, unfortunate implications. Instead, it is retconned into being a lie used by Starhawk to justify being a closeted bisexual. Speaking of... Bi the Way: Lettuce, Blackhawk, Starhawk, Firehawk, Toby, Ebony and Usagi are all confirmed bi. The only confirmed heterosexual characters on the main team are Naruto and Pinkie. (And even then, according to Word of God AKA me, she's experimented in the past with her friends). Naturally, this leads to... Cast Full of Gay: a downplayed example, but LGBT characters feature more prominently in the story. Badass Adorable: Lettuce and Pinkie are the most prominent examples. And starting from her introduction in "Lettuce Manchot, PI", Anna is DEFINITELY this. Battle Couple: a number of them, including Usagi and Kras'hir and Lettuce and Pinkie (at least until their breakup), as well as Blackhawk and Starhawk (as well as Firehawk). Bad Future: The future Aquila arrives from one at the end of "Lettuce Manchot, PI". And ye gods, is it a bad one indeed. Back From the Dead: Two figures from Omnus' past-Amberley Vail and Ciaphas Cain (HERO OF THE IMPERIUM!)-in "Lettuce Manchot, PI". When asked how this is possible, Ciaphas explains that the God-Emperor isn't as dead as they thought (see Wham Line below; this also implies this of the Emperor). In a more plot-relevant example, Usagi does this after being dead for a good majority of "Lettuce Manchot, PI". Childhood Marriage Promise: An innocent and played for laughs example: in "Lettuce Manchot, PI", Sally Anne )who is three) casually says she wants to marry her new friend Anna (who is twelve). Anna lets her down gently, but promises they'll marry when Sally is old enough. Creepy Child: Anna has elements of this, and this concerns Kras'hir that she may grow up to be a serial killer. Depraved Bisexual: Emma is this on account of her Nazi affiliations. Malir, as with all who are affiliated with Slaanesh, is this by default. Eye Scream: Anna experiences this, as well as An Arm and A Leg when she is captured by Nazis in "Lettuce Manchot, PI". Being only 12 years old, this also falls under Adult Fear. Fake Defector: Emma is this, managing to falsely deceive Alma into believing she's defected from the Nazis of Reich-Earth. This is to contrast her with Heinz Guderian, whose Heel-Face Turn is genuine. Fate Worse Than Death: Omnus subjects Dark Kaiser to this after he forces the latter out of Fuhrer Saturn; being a Greater Daemon of Slaanesh, Kaiser is placed in a sensory deprivation chamber and is being kept there as of "Lettuce Manchot, PI", being too weak and in excruciating pain to do anything. Naturally, this overlaps heavily with And I Must Scream due to Dark Kaiser still being alive. Hunting the Most Dangerous Game: The Night Wolves, or rather the warband known as the Sons of Curze, Subject the Rangers to this in "Reborn: Part II". Fittingly, their leader is named Zaroff. The Mole: Malir was this in the "Reborn" arc, posing as a hyperactive Daemoness named Twitchy. This turned out to be a ruse, and she attempted to subject the Rangers to various tortures, up to and including raping Usagi. Motor Mouth: Twitchy, the persona Malir put on in the "Reborn" arc, was this. Mental World: The spirits that reside in Blackhawk's head manifest themselves in one, resembling a tavern. Mind Rape: Alma does this to both Toby and Ebony, leaving them heavily traumatized. If It's You, It's Okay: Deconstructed in "Lettuce Manchot, PI" when Undyne makes Lettuce her "exception". Turns out your partner may not be OK with these developments, especially if you've lied and said they were OK with it. This leads to Undyne and Alphys breaking up when the latter catches the former having a date with Rosie Palms to a photo of Lettuce. Loads and Loads of Characters: ...Yes. Noir Episode: While not a straightforward example, "Lettuce Manchot, PI" definitely has elements of this. Polyamory: A recurring theme in season 2 is relationships, and polyamorous ones are explored in great detail; while most are positive happy and stable ones, the idea is also shown in a negative light in the case of Lettuce, who wanted an open marriage with Pinkie. The latter was...unhappy, to say the least. Private Eye Monologue: Lettuce, appropriately enough, has these in "Lettuce Manchot, PI". Deconstructed somewhat, as they either get in trouble or are unhelpful/irrelevant. Journey to the Center of the Mind: The Emperor, manifesting as Usagi's mother Ikuko, leads the White Ranger on one to help cope with her trauma post-rape by Malir. Rape as Drama: Usagi, in "Reborn: Part III", is assaulted by Malir in a nightmare-inducing sequence. Stalker Shrine: One forms the catalyst for Pinkie and Lettuce's breakup in "Lettuce Manchot, PI" and damages Lettuce's friendship with Kira. Straight Gay: Billy, Rocky, Undyne, and Kira. Wham Line: A relatively minor, but still important one by Ciaphas Cain: “It turns out He isn't as dead as you would think.”
  8. Here are a few more tropes that I have discovered, that have been utilized in "Power Rangers Multiverse Force". Read on, and find out what they are! / https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/FaceDeathWithDignity: A couple of villains have done this on “Power Rangers Multiverse Force”. Namely, BlackHawk's evil mirror copy in “Land of Confusion: Part II”, even going so far, as to admit that the Good BlackHawk was a https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/WorthyOpponent. Drako did the same in “Laughter of the Thirsting Gods: Part II”, even though he was eventually brought “Back from the Dead.” Super Psycho Zero Girl 01 not only did this in “Vision Quest Part II: Orange Sunset”, she tried to pull a https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TakingYouWithMe on BlackHawk. She died, not knowing that it only destroyed his Orange Ranger powers, and not killing BlackHawk himself. A non-fatal version happened in “Reborn: Part I”. When Toby was informed by Omnus that due to his continued inability to focus and maintain civility and dignity to some of the friends that his other Rangers had meant, he was being forced to pass on his powers to a “Worthy Successor”, Toby accepted this fate with dignity. But when Ebony was told that the same fate also applied to her, she ended up being https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/NotGoodWithRejection, to put it mildly. https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/StrawmanHasAPoint: Used and even lampshaded in-episode, in “Genesis of Good, Genesis of Evil.” During the “Power Rangers S.P.D.,” memory play-back, when everyone was making fun of the designated “Scrappy” and https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ButtMonkey Justin, by saying that it was all HIS fault that the “Power Rangers Turbo” team lost TWO whole Megazords and lost to wimpy Space Pirate Divatox, Justin FINALLY got fed up with it, and said: “AUGH!!!! Why does everyone ALWAYS get that WRONG?! It was T.J.'s STUPID idea, to blow up the Rescue Turbo Megazord, and let the regular Turbo Megazord get THRASHED in our battle against Goldgoyle, before FINALLY figuring out how to destroy him! So why does HE get a pass in the 'Bad Ideas Department', whereas all I'M ever looked on is with disdain and distrust?!” And this prompts Bridge to say: “I hate to say this, but STRAWMAN has a point!” Sydney agrees and says: “Yes, he does.” But this results in an https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/IgnoredEpiphany when Z says: “But still, isn't it EASIER to just put all the blame on JUSTIN?! I mean, he IS the designated Scrappy or BUTT-MONKEY!” https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/CharacterDerailment: Your mileage may vary, but the whole business of StarHawk suddenly revealing herself to be into Lesbian relationships, and WORSE, attracted to the idea of being into an incestuous relationship with her sister FireHawk (which was FULL of “Squick”), and the fact that the character trait reveal came out of NOWHERE without any proper build-up, was THIS trope in spades! This led to not only one of the authors, having to do an “Authors Saving Throw,” it eventually had to lead to a https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/DeathOfTheHypotenuse, in the case of FireHawk being “Killed Off For Real,” which FINALLY led to... https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/CharacterRerailment: Once FireHawk was gone, and therefore the “Unfortunate Implications” of StarHawk's relationship with her sister no longer needing to be in place, thanks to FireHawk's spell over her being gone, StarHawk was free to pursue whatever relationships she wanted to pursue, and return to her original characterization. https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BatmanGambit: Oddly enough, a couple of the main villains in “Power Rangers Multiverse Force” seem rather fond of utilizing this. Emperor Diabolica utilized this strategy, in trying to turn Red Power Ranger Naruto evil in “The Red Flaw: Part I”. Unfortunately for him, the plan ended up as one https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/GoneHorriblyRight, as Naruto proved to be TOO strong for Emperor Diabolica to control! Later, in “Reborn: Part I”, Queen Beryl decided to utilize this trope in order to kill off Doctor Maniac, for going TOO far in his evil plans, by using Cybernetics to Eat the Souls of the Super Psycho Zero Girls! “Word of God” is that, Doctor Maniac WILL get better, though! https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HonorableMarriageProposal: Not one, not two, but THREE of these ended up popping up in “Reborn: Part I”. Usagi to Kras'hir, Lettuce to Pinkie, and BlackHawk to StarHawk! In all three cases, they all decided to https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/MarryForLove, with Lettuce going so far as to give Pinkie an https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/EnormousEngagementRing! https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/MarriageOfConvenience: On the opposite end of the spectrum, Queen Hedrian's first two marriages, to Demon King Banriki and Emperor Diabolica, ended up being these. In both cases, the only REAL reason Queen Hedrian married these two evil tyrants, was to BOOST her own power! In actual “Power Rangers” canon, Rita and Lord Zedd's marriage was initially this at first, until it was revealed that Lord Zedd had fallen in love with Rita for real! https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/SpiritWorld: As of “Reborn: Part I”, it's been revealed that there is SOME type of “Limbo,” where spirits of the dead can reside in. Meaning that this is the place where Baphomet, Drako, and Ace were temporarily stuck in before they were brought “Back From the Dead.” Currently, this is where FireHawk, and the now non-evil and brought back to normal Zero Girls are currently residing as well. https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ThePowerOfTheSun: BlackHawk's new ranger power introduced in "Vision Quest Part III: Golden Sunrise", DEFINITELY qualifies for this trope! His morphing call is even "Power of the Sun!" And his personal zord, the Gold Lion Zord, has it's powers derived from the sun, and was easily able to deliver a "One Hit KO" to the Super Psycho Zero Girl Monsters! That's it for my list of trope ideas THIS time! Enough said, true believers!
  9. After a long hiatus, here are a few more tropes utilized in "Power Rangers Multiverse Force." I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I did researching them! / https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/CyberneticsEatYourSoul: In "Vision Quest Part III: Golden Sunrise", Dr. Maniac succeeds in breaking the 3.3 sin on the "Sliding Scale of Scientific Sins". Namely, he upgrades the Super Psycho Zero Girls with such DANGEROUS technology, it literally EATS away all former traces of their former human personalities, making them a case of "Were Once Women", and turned into "Complete Monsters", devoid of any traces of redeeming qualities. https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/EnsembleDarkhorse: Your mileage may vary, but D.O.G., was originally only intended to be an occasional character who would pop up now and then, in the "Power Rangers Multiverse Force" story-line. However, he proved to be so hilarious, with many "Crowning Moments of Funny", he has often been elevated to regular co-starring status with the main Rangers, especially after he became anthropomorphic in "Shock the Monkey!" https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BeastInTheMaze: Played straight in "Vision Quest Part III: Golden Sunrise", during the first of BlackHawk's three trials in order to repair his Orange Ruby. At first, it appears it will be subverted, thanks to the fact that it's only a Giant Cat in a mouse-type maze, but it's played straight, in the fact that BlackHawk can't reason with it, and he can't fight it without his Ranger powers, so he has to run away from it! Thankfully, he escapes the beast without any injuries! https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/EvenEvilHasStandards: Seems to be the case, at least as far as Kunzite and Benzite are concerned, among Queen Beryl's minions. They are NOTICEABLY disturbed when Dr. Maniac stooped so low, as to make his Cybernetics eat the souls of the Super Psycho Zero Girls, and state to each other that Queen Beryl should NOT have aligned herself with such a deranged Maniac! https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/WhyWontYouDie: Said exactly by Naruto, to the Super Psycho Zero Girl Monsters in "Vision Quest Part III: Golden Sunrise." Justified in the fact that despite the fact that a record TWELVE rangers were trying to blast and slice them to bits, they were STILL able to regenerate themselves thanks to advanced cybernetics after each attack! Even when Naruto blasted them SO fast, they SHOULDN'T be able to come back; Dr. Maniac revealed himself to be "Crazy Prepared", as he reveals an ARMY of 300 Super Psycho Zero Girl Monsters, 99 copies for EACH of the original Super Psycho Zero Girl Monsters! https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ShoutOut: As of "Vision Quest Part III: Golden Sunrise", with the locations of Redwall from the "Redwall" book series, and Bird Island from "The Angry Birds Movie" making appearances, the shout-out of these locations mean that it's now possible for "Power Rangers Multiverse Force" to contain references or elements from those franchises as well! https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/CurbStompBattle: Once BlackHawk takes ANOTHER "Level in Awesome", by upgrading to the powers of the Golden Sun Lion Ranger, BlackHawk is able to do this to ALL 297 copies of the Super Psycho Zero Girl Monsters, slicing them and blasting them into nothingness EASILY, whereas BlackHawk STRUGGLED to bring down just one NORMAL Super Psycho Zero Girl before in his Orange Ranger form, and 12 of his fellow Rangers STRUGGLED to bring down just THREE copies of the Super Psycho Zero Girl Monsters! The giant forms of the Super Psycho Zero Girl Monsters fared no better, as they were taken down in just FOUR attacks by BlackHawk's new Leo Lion Zord! https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/SanitySlippage: Seems to be happening to Dr. Maniac, especially evident during his "Villainous Nervous Breakdown" near the end of the episode, where he starts BLASTING everything in side, SCREAMING about wanting the Power Rangers DEAD, and RANTING about wanting the McDonald's Mulan Szechuan McNugget Sauce, itself a popular "Running Gag" with Dr. Maniac. https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/WhatCouldHaveBeen: According to "Word of God", "Vision Quest Part III: Golden Sunrise", was supposed to feature a longer, COOLER fight between BlackHawk and Garudia, as well as a slightly longer fight between BlackHawk and the Super Psycho Zero Girl Monsters, which would've introduced another new Megazord combination, as well as an un-featured song for the End Credits. However, due to constraints of time, and limited space for the episode's running time, the above-mentioned stuff had to be cut, or postponed for another episode's plot. https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/PutOnABus: Has happened several times in "Power Rangers." Tommy HIMSELF, has had this happen to him quite a few times. For fourteen episodes in season one, two episodes in season two, his adult self in the "Mighty Morphing Alien Rangers" mini-arc; and seemingly departed for good in "Power Rangers Turbo" in "Passing the Torch Part II", only to return for the 10th season anniversary episode "Once a Ranger", returning for one full season in "Power Rangers Dino Thunder" (and un-officially, in the "Power Rangers S.P.D." team-up "Wormhole"), appeared again in the "Power Rangers Super Mega Force" 20th year anniversary episode "Legendary Battle", and now appears sporadically within "Power Rangers Multiverse Force". Scorpina had this done to her following "The Mutiny Part I", only to pop-up again in "Goldar's Vice-Versa", before disappearing entirely. The reason for doing this wasn't solved until the "P.R.M.V.F." episode, "Hot-Blooded!", where it was revealed that she was killed in-between the canon episodes of "The Wedding Part III" and "Return of the Green Ranger Part I", which also dealt with the disappearance of Tor the Shuttle Zord, as well as the entire season two absence of Titanus. Rita and Finster had this happen to them following "The Mutiny Part III", the former briefly returning in "White Light Part I-II", before returning full-time in "The Wedding Part I". Rita and Finster were put on a bus AGAIN following "A Zeo Beginning Part II", only to temporarily return half-way through "Power Rangers Zeo" and appearing sporadically after blowing up the Machine Empire in "As Good As Good", before Rita turned to good at the end of "Countdown to Destruction Part II". Rita herself reappeared as The Magi-Mother in "Power Rangers Mystic Force", and again, sporadically throughout "P.R.M.V.F". Jason had this happen to him after "The Power Transfer Part II", only to return in "A Golden Homecoming", and appearing until "Turbo: a Power Rangers Movie", where he was put on a bus AGAIN, only to reappear in "Forever Red". He has appeared in "P.R.M.V.F.". Master Vile managed to get himself put on a bus rather quickly after his impressive debut, in "Alien Rangers from Aquitar Part II", briefly reappearing in "A Zeo Beginning Part II", and in "From Out of Nowhere" in "Power Rangers in Space." He is revealed to have SURVIVED Zordon's purifying Energy Wave in the "P.R.M.V.F." two-part episode "Land of Confusion." Although he leaves after that, it is revealed that he is STILL plotting and planning elsewhere. Billy had this happen to him after "Rangers From Two Worlds Part II", returning semi-regularly in "P.R.M.V.F.". Rocky had this happen to him after "Shift Into Turbo Part II", but has since been rescued from the "So Okay, It's Average Heap" in "P.R.M.V.F.". Adam had this happen to him after "Passing the Torch Part II", briefly returning in the "P.R.i.S." Episode, "Always a Chance," and again for the "P.R.O.O." 15th season anniversary team-up, "Once a Ranger," appearing in "P.R.M.V.F.". Generally, any and all Power Ranger members from the past team of the last season (Starting with the "Power Rangers Zeo" team-up "Rangers From Two Worlds"), and more or less lasting with regularity until the "Power Rangers S.P.D." team-up "Wormhole", have a chance of returning for the following season's team-up. Within "Power Rangers Multiverse Force" itself, Emperor Diabolica, Drako and Baphomet were Put On a Bus at the end of season one, the latter two justified as they were...well, killed, before they were brought https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BackFromTheDead in "Vision Quest Part I: Head Games!"; Vipera after "Cosmic Guardians: Part II", reappearing once within season two before getting a "Mid-Season Upgrade" in "Vision Quest Part I: Head Games!", and becoming a "Deadly Mini-Boss" within the "Vision Quest" mini-arc, before being Put On a Bus again, but at least, THIS time, with a Justified reason, as she needs to fulfill the second part of her bargain with Doctor Maniac, in collecting 200 Necron Robots. / That's it for my list of tropes THIS time! Enough said, true believers!
  10. Wow! Personally, I never thought this series would utilize so MANY tropes, it would get to the point where we started a brand new PAGE of examples, but here we are! Here is another batch of tropes this series has utilized at one point or another in this series. I hope you enjoy reading them, as much as I did writing and researching them. / http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/PinocchioSyndrome: One interesting variation of this happened in “Power Rangers Multiverse Force” season 2. The first time that D.O.G., an Eltarian canine saw Captain Retro, who was ALSO an Eltarian canine but anthropomorphic, D.O.G., wished that he could be an anthropomorphic canine the same way that Captain Retro was. In “Shock the Monkey!”, he unexpectedly got his wish, when he was FORCIBLY transformed by Psygorn, using one of Doctor Maniac's sinister inventions! Psygorn had attempted to turn D.O.G., into an evil monster, but because of D.O.G., having a unique alien biology, all it did was turn him anthropomorphic, and give him the ability of speaking English without needing an electronic dog collar. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ProudWarriorRaceGuy: The Hawkians, namely BlackHawk and StarHawk, can be considered this. The former before he even found OUT he was a Hawkian! Abby Little is also this to, albeit, somewhat reluctantly and not ALWAYS for the same reason. So far, Coop has subverted this trope, although he HAS expressed interest in wanting to join IN on the fights with the Power Rangers! The Taurans and the Vyram (Radiguet's race), can be considered to be DARK versions of this trope! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/RetGone: Arguably, could be seen as the reason WHY both Scorpina and Tor, just suddenly disappeared sometime during season two of “Mighty Morphing Power Rangers.” It's because, as explained in the episode of “Hot-Blooded!”, Naruto and BlackHawk had to travel to the year of 1995 (“It Makes Sense in Context”), and had to fight with Tommy, Adam, and Billy, in order to take down Scorpina! The only way they could do that, was by sacrificing Tor, to blow itself up in order to destroy Scorpina. Therefore, the reason WHY this event wasn't explained DURING “Mighty Morphing Power Rangers”, and wasn't explained UNTIL BlackHawk and Naruto had actually DONE the event, is because from THEIR perspectives, they HADN'T accomplished their task yet, and any prior knowledge that they had done so, might have affected the outcome of that battle! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/PortalToThePast: This is how the Power Rangers travel to the past in “Return of the Green Ranger Part I-III”, Kimberly in “Wild West Rangers Part I-II”, the entirety of “Power Rangers Time Force”, “Reinforcements From the Future Part I-II”, “Wormhole”, and “Hot-Blooded!” in “Power Rangers Multiverse Force” itself! With the exception of “Wormhole”, all of the above examples operate on http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/SanDimasTime, meaning that any amount of time spent in the past, will be the SAME amount of time that passes in present time, from when the Rangers initially went into the past in the first place! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ScaleOfScientificSins: By the time season two of “Power Rangers Multiverse Force” has started, Doctor Maniac has already gotten to violating the first 3.2 sins of science, with every FULL intention of VIOLATING all seven of them! Of course, thanks to various elements of “Warhammer” having made its way to “Power Rangers Multiverse Force,” forces that Doctor Maniac cannot possibly HOPE to comprehend, have already BEAT him to violating all seven scientific sins LONG before he ever could! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/SomeKindOfForceField: Justified two times so far in “Power Rangers Multiverse Force.” The first case involves a magical Force Field which is POWERFUL enough to keep Radiguet from being able to PHYSICALLY enter Core Earth in his OWN body, but sadly can't prevent OTHER forces of evil from being able to pass through it un-harmed, which Radiguet uses to his FULL advantage in order to BREAK the Force Field from the INSIDE! The second time was in “Vision Quest Part I: Head Games”, where BlackHawk accidentally ran into one, set up by psychic girl Alma (acting on the orders of Radiguet, posing as T'zeen'tch), to PREVENT the Power Rangers from RUINING his plans to early! The Power Rangers manage to break it by combining all of their fire-power at once, but Alma succeeds in bringing Radiguet to Core Earth, to temporarily inhabit Ace's body anyways. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ClosestThingWeGot: Played for laughs in the Christmas special, “The Fight Before Christmas”, BlackHawk suggested that Toby could act in a Christmas play production of “A Christmas Carol”. When BlackHawk asks Toby if he can fill in for the actor who was SUPPOSED to play Ebenezer Scrooge, and whether or not Toby had ever acted before, Toby replies: “I once played a tree in an elementary school play once.” And BlackHawk replies: “Close enough!” http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AliensAndMonsters: Perhaps an easier question to answer is, when is this trope NOT in effect in “Power Rangers”?! So far, the biggest examples are “Power Rangers Zeo” (where sentient machines were the biggest threat), and “Power Rangers Time Force”, where they had to deal with rogue mutants, and robot machines. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/WeirdScience: Thanks to the presence of Billy, Alphys, and Doctor Maniac as a dark example, you can expect this trope to pop up with a dependable amount of regularity on season two of “Power Rangers Multiverse Force”. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TalkingInYourDreams: This is one of Captain Retro's abilities. In “Vision Quest Part I: Head Games”, he reveals that when he sleeps, he is able to see the dreams of others, and talk with the mental representation of the one who is dreaming them; in this case, BlackHawk. Captain Retro informs BlackHawk that while he has the ability to talk to others in their dreams, he can NOT control, what it is they are dreaming about. And BlackHawk was dreaming about Ace being brought back to life! Which soon became very true, in a very DARK matter! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/VirtualTrainingSimulation: This is what the Holodeck on “Power Rangers in Space”, and the Virtual Simulation Planet in “Power Rangers Multiverse Force”, are all about. It provides the Power Rangers training experiences in a controlled environment, with adjustable difficulty levels, and customizable experiences. In the case of the latter, it can also provide access to the Morphing Grid, seen in “Virtual Insanity!”, and can also serve as a portal into the past, seen in “Hot-Blooded!” http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/UpliftedAnimal: Happened to D.O.G., and Captain Retro. D.O.G., was originally just fitted with a http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TranslatorCollar, so that he could speak English like a human. Later, he was scientifically transformed into being anthropomorphic, and gained the ability to speak English without the need for an electronic collar. Captain Retro became an anthropomorphic canine, gained the ability to speak English, and got many super-powers, thanks to the magic of the Magi-Mother. Due to being from different dimensions, it is unknown whether this trope can apply to Pinkie Pie, Lettuce, or anyone featured from “Camp Lazlo.” http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TimeStandsStill: One of Alma's psychic powers, is that she can artificially make time APPEAR to stand still, and can mentally FREEZE people still, revealed in “Vision Quest Part I: Head Games”. As it turns out, if she doesn't REMEMBER to mentally reinforce her mental freezing constantly, than someone with sufficiently ENOUGH power can BREAK her mental freezing, as Radiguet did in “Vision Quest Part II: Orange Sunset.” http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/DoABarrelRoll: This trope was referenced as a cool thing to do, in a dream that Lettuce had, in “Heightened Anxiety”. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TheFightingNarcissist: Greater-scope villain Radiguet DEFINITELY fits this trope! For example, in “Land of Confusion: Part I”, when BlackHawk manages to make a SUCCESSFUL attack on Radiguet's FACE, Radiguet royally FREAKS out, and decides he needs to kill BlackHawk EXTRA painfully, as a form of disproportionate retribution! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: In “Vision Quest Part II: Orange Sunset”, this is what happened to FireHawk, when Super Psycho Zero Girl 01, stabbed FireHawk with an energy spear, which eventually led to the death of FireHawk. Not too much later in the same episode, BlackHawk managed to do this to Super Psycho Zero Girl 01, by stabbing her with his Electric Saber and making it a https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ArmorPiercingAttack in the process, but she used all her available energy, to try to pull an “I'm Taking You With Me,” on BlackHawk! Although she succeeded in destroying BlackHawk's Orange Spinosaurus Ranger powers, BlackHawk himself survived the attack. https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/NoSell: This is what the Multi-Megazord (with only a few exceptions), and the Ultra Multi-Megazord (with no exceptions), are able to do to all of their enemies attacks! Radiguet (when he is in his own body), is able to do this with almost ALL individual attacks aimed AT him! It usually requires a COMBINED effort to even hurt him a little, and even THEN, he usually takes the attack with no more than a charred hand for all the effort required! https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/WarGod: If the Blood God of Chaos, Khorne, doesn't qualify for this trope, nobody does! And even though only Radiguet HIMSELF, calls himself a God, he still likes to think of himself as qualifying for this trope! https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/UnblockableAttack: Out of all the attacks featured on “Power Rangers Multiverse Force”, only the Ultra Multi-Meagzord's firing full arsenal attack (which is also a case of, https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill) is TRULY unblockable! Only Radiguet ever TRIED to defend himself from the onslaught in “Land of Confusion: Part II”, and the force STILL forced him to revert back to his normal form! Whereas Emperor Diabolica was warped away to the Chaos Realm, before the attack could actually hit him, in “Laughter of the Thirsting Gods: Part II”! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/SanitySlippage: One of the things that Kras'hir has to constantly worry about, is the fact that if she doesn't satisfy her blood lust for Khorne, the Blood Chaos God, than she will slip into this, to the point where she WON'T be able to distinguish friend from foe! Usagi also initially had to worry about this in season 2, until FireHawk severed her link to Khorne, the Blood Chaos God. https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: “Word of God,” is, Captain Retro has this phobia, only with bees instead of snakes! https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/WeHaveReserves: Doctor Maniac's attitude towards the Power Rangers attempting to stop his evil plans. Kind of justified, since he DOES have cloning technology, and can simply re-clone any of his mooks, any amount of times that he wants to. https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/WeAreNotGoingThroughThatAgain: In the episode, “Follow You, Follow Me”, this was one of Doctor Maniac's reasons for NOT wanting to partner up with the alternate dimension Nazi's from the Nazi Realm dimension (despite the fact that they could arguably seen as a https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BadassArmy for having completely conquered over their entire realm!) In the first place, he didn't like working with them at ALL! In the second, he felt that past teams of Power Rangers (namely, the first ACTUAL team, the “Power Rangers Valor Force”, and the fifth ACTUAL team, the “Power Rangers Solar Force”), had already PROVED that an evil legion of Nazis, was no match for a team of Power Rangers! https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ViolationOfCommonSense: Anyone who personally witnessed Slaneesh FORCE Usagi and Kras'hir to make intimate love to each other in “Laughter of the Thirsting Gods: Part I”, was a big example of this. The only reason this is a Justified action, is the fact that Slaneesh is the Depraved Chaos God of Pleasure, and “It Amused Him.” Also, the marriage between StarHawk and her sister, FireHawk, was seen as this to a somewhat lesser extent. https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/VampiresAreSexGods: It has been largely hinted at that Ebony has utilized this trope to get people to sleep with her! Justified in the fact, she IS actually a quarter-vampire! https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ActualPacifist: So far, Lazlo and Sally Anne are the only characters who can actually be said to qualify as this trope, since they've never actually hurt anyone, not even out of retaliation! https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AlwaysSecondBest: This is the way Queen Hedrian felt that everyone else thought of her, in comparison to her older sister Rita Repulsa, prior to Queen Hedrian's “Heel-Face Turn” in “Follow You, Follow Me.” Ironically enough, in “Land of Confusion: Part I”, Queen Hedrian's father Master Vile, actually told Queen Hedrian herself, that he ALWAYS thought of her as the more EVIL daughter! https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Thankfully, subverted by Coop. He is intelligent enough to help out Billy and Alphys in redesigning the personal vehicles of the Power Rangers in season two, and it has been hinted at that he is more than capable of holding his own in a fight. https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ArrestedForHeroism: This happened to Usagi and Kras'hir in “Cosmic Guardians: Part II”! Justified, because it was actually a bad guy POSING as the President of Core Earth, who did the arresting! https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BabyTalk: This is how Usagi and Kras'hir usually talk to their adopted daughter, Sally Anne. Justified, as she IS only three years old. https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BenevolentBoss: Technically speaking, both Zordon and Omnus can be seen as one (even if they themselves wouldn't call themselves a boss). https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BigBadWannabe: Louie Kaboom was a short-lived one in “Power Rangers Zeo”. He briefly took over the Machine Empire until a suicide battle LITERALLY blew up in his face in a Megazord battle! Darkonda was this to Dark Specter in “Power Rangers in Space”. Although Darkonda succeeded in delivering the fatal blow to Dark Specter, Dark Specter managed to use the last of his life force to take down Darkonda with him! Deviot was this to Trakeena; and in an unusual bit of irony, his ultimate fate ended up being merged WITH her, leading to a transformation where Trakeena “Came Back Wrong”. Frax could be seen as this to Ransik, in “Power Rangers Time Force”. Zeltrax could be seen as this to Mesogog in “Power Rangers Dino Thunder”. Jarrod is an unusual case, in the fact that although he was physically and TECHNICALLY the Big Bad for most of “Power Rangers Jungle Fury”, he ended up just being the human vessel for Dai Shi, the true big bad of that season! Vrak and Prince Vekar, are this to Emperor Marvo in “Power Rangers Megaforce” and “Power Rangers Super Mega Force” respectively. For “Power Rangers Multiverse Force” examples, Demon King Banriki was this to Queen Hedrian. Vipera was this to Emperor Diabolica, and she actually SUCCEEDED in becoming the “Dragon Ascendent”, when she became the new ruler after Emperor Diabolica escaped into the Chaos Realm. And Psygorn (unknown to Doctor Maniac), is this to Doctor Maniac! Arguably, Emperor Diabolica, Vipera, Doctor Maniac, and Queen Beryl, are all THIS compared to Greater-scope Evil Radiguet! https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BigDamnHeroes: BlackHawk pulled one of these moments in “Orange Crush: Part I”; Captain Retro pulled one in “Land of Confusion: Part I”, and Woolbur Fleeceley pulled one in “Vision Quest Part II: Orange Sunset”. https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BiggerIsBetterInBed: This is Ebony's attitude towards her preference in regards to a guy's 'size'. So far, she counts BlackHawk as the biggest AND best experience she has ever had! Too bad she HAD to go and cause BlackHawk to break up with her! https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BitchInSheepsClothing: Arguably, this is what Vipera became, when she utilized her human Viola disguise in “Life is a Beach!”, in an attempt to steal the Orange Ruby away from BlackHawk! https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BrokeYourArmPunchingOutCthulhu: In “Land of Confusion: Part I”, this ended up happening to Naruto, when he TRIED to punch Radiguet un-morphed, with an elemental punch called “Firefox Punch!” Radiguet didn't even FLINCH from his attack, and Naruto even lampshaded this trope, by saying: “I think I broke my arm while trying to punch out Cthulu!” http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/MidSeasonUpgrade: Happened to BlackHawk, in the form of a Six Ranger Addition. Technically, he was the seventh Ranger, but it counts. In “Orange Crush: Part I”, he became the Orange Spinosaurus Ranger, for his ability to bond the Orange Ruby with his own power. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HerHeartWillGoOn: “Word of God” is, despite having lost FireHawk, StarHawk will persist, and be able to move on from this unfortunate turn of events, and will be able to love again despite losing someone close to her. https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ButForMeItWasTuesday: Doctor Maniac said this trope, when Woolbur Fleeceley brought up the death of his older brother in “Shock the Monkey!” / That's it for my list of tropes this time! Enough said, true believers!
  11. Hooray ! I'm making a post at like, 3 in the morning! I practically DON'T have a life! Okay, enough of the sarcastic self-depreciation, it's time to get to the REAL reason why I'm here, making another list of tropes that have appeared on "Power Rangers Multiverse Force". I hope you enjoy reading them, as much as I did researching them. / http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AngerBornOfWorry: Arguably, this happened to all the parents of the current team of “Power Rangers Multiverse Force” (the ones that are seen on-screen, anyways). Justified, because they of course, WANTED to protect their children from harm, but seeing as how their children are Power Rangers, they quickly realized that their ability to protect their children was going to be extremely limited in scope and efficiency. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BecomingTheMask: Happened to Queen Hedrian during the first seven episodes of season two of “Power Rangers Multiverse Force.” She started off, only PRETENDING to love and care about Omnus, but ended up falling in love with him for REAL, in “Follow You, Follow Me,” after Omnus freed Queen Hedrian from being manipulated by Radiguet. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/DeathOfTheHypotenuse: Arguably, has happened to StarHawk in “Vision Quest Part II: Orange Sunset”, after her sister-wife FireHawk died, and FireHawk's Lesbian Hex on StarHawk has now gone away. Now StarHawk is able to love somebody who can TRULY love and respect her; now that FireHawk has been http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/RemovedFromThePicture. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/DyingDeclarationOfLove: Depending on how you look at it, FireHawk's confession that she really DID love her sister-wife StarHawk, as FireHawk was dying in “Vision Quest Part II: Orange Sunset”, is either very sweet, or STILL very disturbing! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/GrowOldWithMe: Ended up happening to Rita Repulsa and Lord Zedd. Although already OLD by human standards by the time they became good, thanks to Zordon's purification wave; it wasn't long after that, they they soon LOOKED as old as they actually WERE, once they agreed to give up the youth they had received, in order to restore their powers, in order to use them for the forces of good. They have continued to grow old together, ever since their initial experience together. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/FullFrontalAssault: Played straight when Radiguet became a http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BodySnatcher, and hijacked Ace's body (which HAD been buried and completely naked before Radiguet did so, making it a justified trope), in “Vision Quest Part I: Head Games,” and “Vision Quest Part II: Orange Sunset.” Even though Ace is considerably WEAKER than Radiguet, Radiguet, using Ace's body, was STILL able to hold his own against Captain Retro, and Ace was COMPLETELY naked during the whole ordeal! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Doppelganger: All seven of the main Power Rangers met Mirror Dimension versions of themselves, during the “Land of Confusion” two-part episode. Interesting variation, in the fact that they actually weren't EVIL to begin with, just “Brainwashed and Crazy”. Even so, only Mirror Lettuce was able to be turned back to normal. Also seen in the two-part episode, were Mirror versions of Radiguet, Mirror, and D.O.G. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/CloneArmy: This is the basis for Doctor Maniac's personal army of “Mooks”, or grunts. Of course, given that the name for his army of Mooks are called Mecha-Clones, the “Meaningful Name” should REALLY give it away! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/CosmicChessGame: This is basically the game that Greater Scope Villain Radiguet is currently playing, through the manipulation of Queen Beryl and Doctor Maniac (and before that, Emperor Diabolica and Queen Hedrian). Since Radiguet currently CAN'T invade Core Earth due to a Force Field made of “Applied Phlebotinum”, he has to utilize chess pieces, or pawns to do it FOR him, and WEAKEN the Force Field to the point that it will BREAK, and Radiguet can invade it for himself! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/CrushKillDestroy: A phrase similar to this one, was said by one-time villain General Crush in “Orange Crush: Part I.” The phrase was “Burn, Maim, Kill!” The same phrase is also said by EVERYONE living in the Chaos Realm, in “Laughter of the Thirsting Blood Gods: Part I”. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Cyborg: Doctor Maniac has currently become an evil version of one of these, due to Woolbur Fleeceley cutting OFF two of his limbs, his left arm and left leg, in “Genesis of Good, Genesis of Evil”, and “Shock the Monkey!” respectively! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/EvilDetectingDog: Played straight with D.O.G., in “Life is a Beach!”, “Wooly Bully!”, and “Wild Horses!” In all three cases, D.O.G., could sense that there was an evil presence close to the Power Rangers, even BEFORE the Power Rangers themselves could! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ExtyYearsFromNow: The main story-line of “Power Rangers Multiverse Force”, takes place in 2178, 160 years FROM 2018, and according to “Word of God”, 200 years AFTER the very FIRST team of Power Rangers (the “Power Rangers Valor Force”), fought evil, in 1978! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/FanOfThePast: Captain Retro, and to a lesser extent, BlackHawk, definitely fit this trope! Although, they are more fans of music, movie, and T.V. Shows that were popular in the past, and not necessarily every single thing that happened in the past! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TheGenieKnowsJackNicholson: One of Captain Retro's favorite go-to tropes, is to reference pop-culture T.V. Shows, movies, people, and music that were popular (from the perspective of “Power Rangers Multiverse Force”), 200 YEARS ago, as one of the more quirky bits of his personality! It's justified in that A., Captain Retro was originally AROUND during the time of “Power Rangers Mystic Force”, and B., in the fact that Captain Retro is linked to the Dog Guardian Clifford, who is a living “Akhasic Records” on EVERYTHING that has happened in the past! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/GodGuise: Radiguet is particularly FOND of using this trope, to achieve his evil ends. He has PRETENDED to successfully impersonate the Blood God Khorne to fool Emperor Diabolica and Queen Hedrian to do his dirty work for him, and successfully impersonated T'zeen'tch to get Alma to revive the then dead body of Ace, so Radiguet could STEAL it, to wage an attack on Core Earth! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/GoneHorriblyRight: Surprisingly enough, this happened to Emperor Diabolica's plans, TWICE! The first time was in “The Red Flaw” mini-arc, and the second time was in “Orange Crush: Part I”. In both cases, the evil force that Emperor Diabolica created, turned out to be TOO strong for Empeor Diabolica himself, to be able to control! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ItOnlyWorksOnce: In “Land of Confusion: Part II”, Queen Hedrian revealed that she COULD revive ALL of her fallen monsters, but it's a trick that only works ONCE! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/KillAllHumans: This is Doctor Maniac's ultimate plan, taken to eleven! He doesn't just WANT to destroy all of his fellow humans, he wants to END all organic life on Core Earth, as a form of “Disproportionate Retribution,” for the death of his son, Prince Maniac! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/LoadsAndLoadsOfRaces: Due to the nature of “Power Rangers”, it has seen a vast influx of many different alien races appearing at least ONCE, in any given season of “Power Rangers”, even if a good NUMBER of alien races look surprisingly HUMAN in their appearance! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/MetamorphosisMonster: Played straight with one-time villain Scorpina, Vipera, and Mirror Radiguet. In the case of the first two, they could turn into giant-sized MONSTER versions of their “Meaningful names”, while Mirror Radiguet could transform into a giant blue dragon! In the case of Raj and Nephrite, it was FORCED upon them, as it was Doctor Maniac's evil technology that transformed them into hideous, evil monsters! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/InterspeciesRomance: Happened initially, between BlackHawk and Ebony in season one, before certain character traits on Ebony's part, caused BlackHawk to “Abandon Shipping” with her, TWICE! As of season two, is still going on between Lettuce and Pinkie; and to a lesser degree, Alphys and Undyne. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/LovePotion: In canon, this is how Rita Repulsa got Lord Zedd to fall in love with her, initially. In “Power Rangers Multiverse Force”, her younger sister Queen Hedrian, later utilized the SAME trick, to get Emperor Diabolica to fall in love with HER! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ReleasingFromThePromise: When FireHawk died in “Vision Quest Part II: Orange Sunset,” she released StarHawk from the magical vow, that she could ONLY fall in love with a woman, and that StarHawk had to stay devoted to her, even AFTER FireHawk's death! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/PureEnergy: All Power Rangers, and most evil villains, have mastery over this to SOME sort of extent. The most notable exceptions, being the Machine Empire, who utilize technology instead of energy attacks to invade other planets! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Flight: In terms of actually being able to fly; BlackHawk, Coop, Abby Little, and Captain Retro have all mastered this. For the first three, it's Justified, in the fact that they are all alien bird-like creatures that have wings, and can fly naturally. For Captain Retro, he uses a combination of magic and chi energy to accomplish flying wherever he needs to go! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/KamehameHadoken: Naruto, BlackHawk, Coop, StarHawk, and Captain Retro can already utilize techniques like this by the time “Power Rangers Multiverse Force” starts. In Captain Retro's case, he actually KNOWS how to USE an ACTUAL Kamehameha energy wave to attack energies. Usagi later learns this trick in season two, and Lettuce and Pinkie have started to undergo training, in order to utilize techniques like this one as well! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BequeathedPower: In “Vision Quest Part II: Orange Sunset”, psychic girl Alma did this to Ace for two heroic reasons. The first reason was to FORCE Radiguet out of Ace's body, and the second was to give Ace his OWN life back properly, so he could live WITHOUT Radiguet possessing his body like a puppet! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TheForceIsStrongWithThisOne: Naruto, BlackHawk, and Captain Retro, all begin “Power Rangers Multiverse Force” already knowing how to sense power levels of their opponents, and therefore, able to gauge just how much of a threat they are. Usagi later learns this at the beginning of season two, and Lettuce and Pinkie start to learn it, starting with the episode “Follow You, Follow Me”. Ironically enough, despite being the strongest PHYSICAL threat to the Power Rangers, Greater Scope Villain Radiguet himself, can't sense power levels WITHOUT the aid of a device! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/MagicEnhancement: The “Power Rangers Wild Force; Power Rangers Mystic Force; Power Rangers Jungle Fury; Power Rangers Samurai;” and “Power Rangers Super Mega Force” (by accessing the above-mentioned team's powers, as well as several LEGENDARY Ranger powers from the teams that came BEFORE the “Mighty Morphing Power Rangers”), can enhance their strength thanks to the properties of magic. BlackHawk, Coop, Captain Retro, and Ebony can also due this to varying degrees of success, with Ebony being more of an http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/IneptMage at the whole thing. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/SuperStrength: When someone turns into a Power Ranger, they almost ALWAYS gain this ability (with the possible exception of Justin and the “Power Rangers R.P.M.” team). Naruto, BlackHawk, StarHawk, Coop, Undyne, and Kras'hir take this ability to Eleven, as they already HAVE Super Strength, the FIRST three who later BECAME Power Rangers, merely got their Super Strength enhanced as a Power Bonus! General Crush, the Super Psycho Zero Girls, and Radiguet, are villainous examples. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/YouJustToldMe: Another trope that Captain Retro is fond of, is utilizing THIS one, in order to extract information from others who might not necessarily provide it under any other circumstances! For instance, he utilizes it in “Vision Quest Part I: Head Games” to CONFIRM his suspicions, that FireHawk IS working behind StarHawk's back, to be the Necron Prophet for Queen Beryl. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/MonsterOfTheWeek: Played pretty much straight in the “Power Rangers”, with the exception of certain arcs or multi-part episodes that deal with more serious matters. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/MulticulturalAlienPlanet: By the time of “Power Rangers S.P.D.,” Earth has become this. It carries on into “Power Rangers Multiverse Force”; and will continue at least until the time of “Power Rangers Time Force”, in the year 3000. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TheMultiverse: This should be SO obvious, but “Power Rangers Multiverse Force”, is built upon, and operates AROUND this trope! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/NamedAfterTheirPlanet: This happens to be the case for the Eltarians from “Mighty Morphing Power Rangers”, the Aquatarians from “Mighty Morphing Alien Rangers”, the Triforians from “Power Rangers Zeo”, the Xybrians from “Power Rangers Time Force”, the Andalusians from “Power Rangers Super Mega Force”, and the Hawkians from “Power Rangers Multiverse Force”. Although in all six cases, it's not explicitly stated whether the name of the species, or the name of the planet, came first. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/NewNeoCity: In “Power Rangers Multiverse Force”, its stated that BlackHawk's hometown (and by extension, Coop, Abby, Ace, and the rest of the Woo Foo Warriors from “Yin Yang Yo”), is Neo Chicago. However, it is currently unknown whether the city was rebuilt from the ruins of an original Chicago, or a completely brand NEW city, that just decided to be CALLED Neo Chicago. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/NoBigDeal: Given that by the time “Power Rangers Multiverse Force” is occurring, Power Rangers running around fighting bad guys, aliens or whatever trying to take over the world, sealed evil in a can or jar (or dumpster), and magical feats of skill, are commonly known feats of knowledge, things just don't seem as SHOCKING to the citizens of Core Earth anymore. In fact, it takes the revelation of the fact that the Chaos Gods and the forces of Chaos EXIST to START the people of Core Earth to worry somewhat! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/NoNewFashionsInTheFuture: So far, played straight in “Power Rangers Multiverse Force,” even if no actual explanation as to why, has been given yet. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/NukeEm: The Power Rangers Multiverse Force attempted to do this to Psychic Girl Alma, in order to stop her. It FAILED miserably, and later caused Captain Retro to give a “What the Hell, Hero?!” moment to BlackHawk, who was actually AGAINST the idea! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HijackedByGanon: Attempted by the spirit of the Dark Kaiser, to Fuhrer Saturn, in “Vision Quest Part I: Head Games.” Subverted in the fact, that Fuhrer Saturn actually manages to DEFY the Dark Kaiser's attempt to hijack him, and Fuhrer Saturn even MENTIONS this trope by name, in the fact that such a thing would NOT happen to him, as he was a “Noble Demon.” / That's it for my list of tropes this time! Will there be another LIST of tropes in the future?! Who knows?! But if there is, I will present them to you! Enough said!
  12. I decided to come up with some more tropes that I have researched on happening on various episodes of "Power Rangers Multiverse Force." I hope you enjoy reading them, as much as I did researching and writing them. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/SuccessfulSiblingSyndrome: Thankfully subverted and averted by Coop. Even though his older brother BlackHawk has MANY more athletic awards than he does, Coop doesn't resent BlackHawk for it, and instead focuses on winning his own awards through scientific accomplishments. Played straight with Queen Hedrian when she was evil, as she was initially jealous that everyone thought of her older sister Rita Repulsa, as a big deal! Thankfully, this has stopped ever since her “Heel-Face Turn” in “Follow You, Follow Me.” http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/IHaveNoSon: It is implied that Emperess Jooza tried to do this to Radiguet, during the flash-back sequence from 1999, seen in the episode "Genesis of Good, Genesis of Evil". When she found out that Dark Specter wasn't killed by the Power Rangers, but by his own supposed ally Darkonda, Emperess Jooza worried that the SAME fate could happen to Radiguet, so she tried to strip him of his powers, and leave him for dead on Planet Earth! “It Didn't Stick”, however, and Radiguet came back and murdered her! Retroactively, this is played straight by Doctor Maniac, after the death of his own son, Prince Maniac. He has killed off his own feelings, resulting in a “Death of Personality” on his own part, and turning his back on his own human emotions. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BadassFamily: It is implied that the entire immediate Little Family, is one of these. It has been stated that Ace was a Martial Arts expert (it helps that “In-Universe”, his ideal voice actor would be Jason David Frank)! Abby's weapon of choice is a “Frying Pan of Doom,” in “Yin Yang Yo” canon, Coop has immense powers and has used them to help defeat the season one Night Master, and helped the Woo Foo Warriors on other occasions in battle! BlackHawk, lets his actions against the forces of evil speak for themselves! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BadassArmFold: Although it's not always explicitly stated, whenever BlackHawk is trying to make an important point to somebody (especially and even if it is a bad guy), he will always fold his arms together, in exactly this matter. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/DynamicAkimbo: Given that this is a series based on the “Power Rangers”, this trope will ALWAYS be in play, at least “Once per Episode”, and it will ALWAYS be played straight! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/PowerWalk: Back when D.O.G., was more of a normal canine, BlackHawk would always take him out for a walk, in PRECISELY this matter! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/WeCanRuleTogether: The whole basis for Queen Hedrian giving Emperor Diabolica the Love Potion, was to invoke this trope! Of course, it was a long-term game plan of trying to increase her OWN powers, and trying to get Emperor Diabolica killed OFF (which she couldn't do herself, although “It Makes Sense in Context”). Needless to say, the plan didn't work out the way she wanted it to! (Although as Queen Hedrian found out retrospectively, it was probably in her OWN best interest!) In “Shock the Monkey!”, Doctor Maniac was disappointed, NOT by the fact that Woolbur Fleeceley was able to break FREE of his binding ropes so EASILY, but by the fact that he did it BEFORE Doctor Maniac could get around to trying to invoke THIS trope, by trying to betray his fellow Rangers! Although, given the type of character that Woolbur Fleeceley is, it probably wouldn't have worked on him anyways. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HeroicRROD: Has happened canonically on the “Power Rangers” a few key times. The first time was in season three of “Mighty Morphing Power Rangers.” After Rita and Lord Zedd temporarily stole Kimberly's Power Coin, she had to draw on the power from the other Power Rangers in order to become the Pink Ranger. Than, when Kimberly was distracted by trying to train for the Pan Global Games, Rita and Zedd decided to overtax Kimberly's energy reserves, by forcing her to fight in various monster emergencies! Their plan worked, as Kimberly finally became too exhausted to support the Pink Ranger power any longer, although it did have the unintended side effect of freeing Kat from Rita's mind spell in the process! It happened to Jason in “Power Rangers Zeo”. Despite being a strong, human warrior, he could not support the powers of the Gold Zeo Ranger forever. And as a result, it got to the point where it began to HURT Jason, just to SUMMON the powers of the Gold Zeo Ranger, and Alpha V and Zordon had to undergo a complex ritual, that WOULD allow Jason to SAFELY transfer the powers back to a reunited Trey of Triforia! Thankfully, it worked! It happened in “Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue,” after Olympius cursed Ryan, the Titanium Ranger with the Curse of the Cobra; an evil serpent tattoo that would inch CLOSER to his neck and eventually kill him, every time he utilized his morph! Thankfully, Ryan eventually got better. The most notable example, happened in “The Legendary Battle.” Although the “Super Mega Force” Power Rangers were all good fighters, they were simply overwhelmed by Emperor Marvo using SHEER numbers against them! It took the return of Orion, and seeing the resilience of the civilians, to get the Power Rangers to mount a successful counter-attack! But after being able to FINALLY bring an end to Emperor Marvo, the Power Rangers were HORRIFIED to see an army of THOUSANDS of X-Borgs approaching them, when they were already DRAINED to the point of exhaustion! Thankfully, the Legendary Rangers pulled a “Big, Damn Heroes” moment, and teamed up with them in order to bring an end to the Galactic threat. Has now happened on “Power Rangers Multiverse Force” itself, in “Vision Quest Part II: Orange Sunset.” BlackHawk, faced with the overwhelming strength and power of Super Psycho Zero 01, was FORCED to try to push the Orange Ruby, BEYOND it's normal power limits! Doing so, put a STRAIN on the Orange Ruby, causing it to crack! BlackHawk was FINALLY able to fatally STAB Super Psycho Zero 01, only for her to pull an “I'm Taking You With Me!” And BlackHawk was already too physically exhausted to try to escape, and the explosion SHATTERED the Orange Ruby into three distinct pieces, ending the powers, of the Orange Spinosaurus Power Ranger! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/DramaticallyMissingThePoint: In “Vision Quest Part I: Head Games”, Captain Retro utilized this trope verbatim, when Pinkie Pie, instead of focusing on the point that Sex is a necessary part to reproducing life, INSTEAD focused on the fact that the Tooth Fairy doesn't exist! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/SlowNo: Rocky said this, when he saw Super Psycho Zero 01, fatally STAB FireHawk through the heart! Even though he had no emotional connections to her whatsoever, it was probably due MORE to the fact that he didn't believe that such a thing COULD happen in their vicinity! What made it even MORE dramatic, is that FireHawk ended up DYING right in Rocky's arms! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AbandonedWarehouse: This is where the main fight of “The Drums of War” took place, in an abandoned Fireworks Factory Warehouse. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AlwaysNight: Played Straight and Justified, whenever there is any action that takes place on Earth's moon, or in space during the Canon seasons of “Power Rangers”! Since the moon and space doesn't have a normal day schedule like there is on Earth, it is ALWAYS a de facto night in these locations! More darkly utilized, in the Dark Mirror Dimension in the “Land of Confusion” two-part episodes, where it is implied that the permanent darkness has been caused, BECAUSE Mirror Radiguet ABSORBED all the powers, of THAT Dimension's four main Chaos Gods! Another dark example occurred in “The Laughter of the Thirsting Gods: Part I”, where everywhere WITHIN the Chaos Realm, it was ALWAYS night time, with the notable exception of Nurgle's section of the Chaos Realm. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AttackOfTheKillerWhatever: Given that this is a series based on the “Power Rangers,” you can usually expect this trope to be played straight at least “Once per Episode.” http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TheSociopath: In Canon, Lord Zedd was this, ESPECIALLY before Rita Repulsa gave him a Love Potion that softened him considerably. Master Vile is STILL this, Dark Specter was; Trakeena eventually BECAME this, especially after she MERGED with Deviot and “Came Back Wrong.” Queen Bansheera eventually revealed herself to be this, to the point that even her loyal ally Diabolico, eventually TURNED on her, and helped the Power Rangers finally defeat her! Mesogog was this, ESPECIALLY after he separated himself from his Good half, Anton Mercer, and went off the DEEP end of insanity! Emperor Grumm, Dai Shi, and Emperor Marvo were all this. In “Power Rangers Multiverse Force”, Emperor Diabolica is this, even if it was rather PATHETICALLY in season one. Queen Beryl and Doctor Maniac are this much more successfully in season two, while “Greater Scope Villain” Radiguet takes this trope “Up to Eleven!” http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/SlowTransformation: Happened to both D.O.G., AND Raj in “Shock the Monkey!” Thankfully, in the first instance, it was subverted, because the scientific device DIDN'T turn D.O.G., evil, thanks to “Unique Alien Biology”. It only turned him anthropomorphic, and allowed him to speak English without the need for an electronic dog collar. Played painfully straight with Raj, though. As it transformed him into a four-armed monster reminiscent of Vishnu! While in this monstrous form, Raj BEGGED to be put out of his misery, which the Power Rangers really had no choice, but to comply with. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/SlasherSmile: You can usually count on the “Big Bad” of each season of “Power Rangers”, to flash one of these, at least “Once per season.” Notable exceptions are comedic villains. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/LetsSplitUpGang: Averted in “Virtual Insanity!” This was Justified, in that it was a Scary Story type of a situation, they were in the woods, and as “Genre Savvy” Ebony pointed out, nothing good EVER happens to people who split up in the woods. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/RemovingTheHeadOrDestroyingTheBrain: In “Virtual Insanity”, Ebony pointed out that the best way to attack the undead zombie Imps, was to remove the head, as that's the ONLY way to kill a zombie! Utilized yet AGAIN, in “Weekend at Ebony's, against “Monster of the Week” Zombee. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/PuppeteerParasite: Demon King Banriki briefly became this when he was injected into the body of Woolbur Fleeceley in the episode “Wooly Bully.” Greater Scope Villain Radiguet became this when he tricked the young psychic girl Alma, into performing a magic ritual, that would ALLOW Radiguet's spirit to travel SAFELY through Core Earth's Force Field, into the body of the then dead Ace, and bring him back to life! In Radiguet's case, he actually managed to KEEP his body for TWO whole episodes, in “Vision Quest Part I” and “Vision Quest Part II”. In “Vision Quest Part I”, the Dark Kaiser also attempted to pull this on Fuhrer Saturn, but failed, as Fuhrer Saturn was a “Noble Demon”, and proved to be TOO strong to hijack! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/PsychoPartyMember: Canonically, in both the original “Super Sentail” source “Bioman”, and in “Power Rangers Multiverse Force”, Psygorn, one of Doctor Maniac's generals, is one of these! Of course, the fact that the first half of his NAME, starts with “Psy”, should tip you off pretty QUICKLY, that he DOESN'T have any good intentions! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/FateWorseThanDeath: “Greater Scope Villain” Radiguet himself, considers the usage of painful torture on all his enemies, instead of quick and painless death, to be a fate FAR worse, and more EVIL of a fate to bestow upon his victims! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/EldritchAbomination: In addition to the four main Chaos Gods themselves; in “Vision Quest Part I: Head Games”, Captain Retro revealed that The Tower ITSELF is one of these! Although it isn't an EVIL one, as is the usual case. It's Eldritch Abomination status, comes more in the form of the fact that as far as humans are concerned, “You Cannot Grasp it's True Form.” The only reason humans SEE it as a Tower, is because it is a form that they can actually comprehend. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/DistressCall: This is how the whole plot for “Shock the Monkey!”, started, as one of these is heard by the Power Rangers from BlackHawk's old friend, Samson, as he begs for help on behalf of Camp Kidney and Prickly Pines, to be saved from the wrath of the evil Doctor Maniac! Of course, the Power Rangers did so! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/DeadlyDoctor: This should be SO obvious, but Doctor Maniac is one of these! As he uses his scientific skills and technology to perform horrific experiments on people and other helpless creatures, all “For the Science!” / That's it for my tropes this time! Enough said, true believers!
  13. Here are some tropes relating to some of the more...cosmic bits of PR: MVF (with a few tropes geared more specifically the Crimson King) and by extension the Reneverse, though the former is the primary focus. Animalistic Abomination: While not necessarily abominations in any sense of the word, the Guardians fit this as they are all-powerful god-like beings who just happen to resemble animals. Apocalypse How, Class Z: What the Crimson King is intending to happen to the multiverse as a whole; the annihilation of everything that is, was, or would/could be. The Rangers cannot do anything about it, sadly, because ka, or fate, has not destined them to do so. Instead, it has fallen to the gunslinger known as Roland to do so. Cosmic Keystone: The Dark Tower, which holds up all of reality, and is kept watch over by the Guardians. However, the Beams that hold it up are slowly decaying as a result of the Crimson King, and by extension, so is the multiverse. Cosmic Horror Story: "Power Rangers: Multiverse Force" has always had elements of this, though it's become far more prominent from the tail-end of season 1 onwards. Even Evil Has Standards: The Chaos Gods, the most powerful beings in "PR: MVF" canon, fear and despise the Crimson King. Word of God states that Radiguet feels the same way in spite of being in service to Malal/Misery, the Renegade Chaos God. For all his narcissism and violently childish ambitions of godhood, even Radiguet knows what the Crimson King and his associates are doing IS A VERY, VERY, VERY BAD IDEA. Greater Scope Paragon::The Guardians are this in contrast to the Greater Scope Villains of Radiguet and the Crimson King. Greater Scope Villain: Radiguet is peanuts compared to the Crimson King, to put it bluntly. Lovecraft Lite: While definitely having cosmic horror overtones, "Power Rangers: Multiverse Force" from season 2 onwards falls far more into this category. Despite the crapsack, horror-filled nature of the multiverse, the Rangers still try and hold onto their ideals of justice. Surprisingly enough, this fits more in line with the original tones of H.P. Lovecraft, a prominent influence on the literature. Omnicidal Maniac: ...WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST CLUE?! Sliding Scale of Idealism Vs. Cynicism: "Power Rangers: Multiverse Force" season 1 was very idealistic in keeping with its 'homage to early Power Rangers' roots. Season 2 is somewhere in the middle; while it's definitely far more cynical and dark in tone, there is still a strong sense of optimism.
  14. Since I LITERALLY have nothing better to do with my time, I decided to research more tropes that have been used on "Power Rangers Multiverse Force", before I begin writing my next new episode of it! I hope you enjoy reading them, as much as I did writing them! / http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/WouldHurtAChild: Vipera and Galaxy Lightning chillingly revealed that they WOULD hurt a child...or at the very least, they COULD if they really wanted to! One time, they kidnapped Sally Anne with the hopes that they could lure the Power Rangers into a trap! Although they never actually HURT her, it has to do more with the fact that Usagi never gave them a CHANCE to attempt to hurt Sally Anne! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/WouldHitAGirl: Just because Vipera, Galaxy Lightning, the Zero Girls, and many other one time villains were female, that never stopped the Power Rangers from fighting them. Of course, it's justified in the fact that those characters are genuinely evil, and by extension, are kind of giving OTHER females, especially the female Power Rangers, a less than positive image as a gender! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/WhatTheHellHero: Deliberately invoked and mentioned by Captain Retro to BlackHawk in “Vision Quest Part I: Head Games.” Captain Retro was referencing the past action the Power Rangers did, in their attempts to try to stop the psychic girl Alma, from escaping out into the world! The Power Rangers resorted to trying to NUKE her; but when it didn't work and instead only RUINED most of Coastal Falls, Captain Retro was NOT at all impressed when he confronted BlackHawk about it! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/WellIntentionedExtremist: Dark Fuhrer Saturn considers himself this. He wants to create an 'idealized world', for the 'Aryan Master Race'. And if he has to exterminate a BUNCH of different ethnic groups in order to do it, than as far as he is concerned, the ends will justify the means. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/WasTooHardOnHim: In retrospect, Abby Mallard Little considers her past treatment to her husband Ace, this. She berated and yelled at him for losing a karate championship, and was subsequently divorced from him! After Ace died, Abby concealed her true feelings, by trying to retreat into her shell of being obsessed with winning, propping up BlackHawk, and to a lesser extent, Coop, as substitutes for her lost husband. Of course, now that Ace has been brought back to life, there's a chance that Abby might be able to ask Ace for forgiveness. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/VillainousBSOD: Queen Hedrian suffered this, upon finding out that Radiguet had been mind-raping her without her knowledge, in the episode “Follow You, Follow Me.” http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TheUnapologetic: Greater Scope Villain Radiguet, is infamously this! He NEVER apologizes, he NEVER thinks that anything he does is wrong or punishable, he NEVER feels remorse, and he NEVER says that he's sorry! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TearsOfRemorse: Queen Hedrian shed these in “Follow You, Follow Me”, after making her “Heel Realization,” on how horrible she had been in the past, towards Omnus and the Power Rangers who had fought against her. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/MoralityKitchenSink: With the Guardians, the Chaos Gods, Radiguet, Queen Beryl, Omnus, Doctor Maniac, Captain Retro, Queen Hedrian, the Magi-Mother, Vipera, Emperor Diabolica, Dark Fuhrer Saturn, Kras'hir, and the Power Rangers themselves; “Power Rangers Multiverse Force” has a big case of THIS trope, in spades! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/SensitivityTraining: Omnus is currently teaching the reformed Queen Hedrian this, to use her powers for good instead of evil, and also teaching her to have more empathy towards others and their problems. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/SelfDisposingVillain: Unintentionally, this ended up happening to Mirror Radiguet in “Land of Confusion: Part II.” When he was reduced to just a torso with an arm and a head, the Chaos Gods he had absorbed, drove Radiguet to SUICIDE, and Mirror Radiguet ended offing himself off, just to get the Chaos Gods to FINALLY shut up! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem: Greater Scope Villain Radiguet, has no sense of morals, and no sense of fair play. And if he ever DOES set up an arbitrary set of rules for the Power Rangers, you can DEFINITELY expect that he will BREAK his own rules, “For the Evulz,” and because, “It Amuses Him” to do this! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ScrewTheMoneyIHaveRules: This is one of Captain Retro's operating principles! No matter what type of bribery or temptation that evil might try to bribe him with, he will NEVER betray his core set of principles, of doing the right thing for justice and good! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/SafeSaneAndConsensual: While BlackHawk does have strong sexual urges towards others he is attracted to, he only feels comfortable in doing something with someone else, as long as that person or character consents and is comfortable to doing the activity with him! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/RedemptionFailure: Sadly, has happened to the Zero Girls, and it wasn't even THEIR fault! After betraying Vipera and trying to achieve normal lives, Vipera returned with a sinister Psycho serum in “Vision Quest Part I: Head Games”, in order to BRAINWASH the Zero Girls into becoming EVIL again! And now, they are the Super Psycho Zero Girls! This can NOT end well! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/OrderVersusChaos: One of the core concepts of “Power Rangers Multiverse Force”, is that it's a story of Order (the Guardians, Omnus, and the Power Rangers), fighting against the forces of Chaos (Radiguet, Queen Beryl, and the Chaos Gods). http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/NotEvenHuman: Justified for most teams of the Power Rangers; as in many cases, the Power Rangers have to fight off space aliens, sentient machines, demons, mutants, Orgs, the Rinshi, the Moogers, Imps, and MechaClones. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/NeverHurtAnInnocent: Another one of Captain Retro's core principles, is that he will not allow harm to fall upon anyone innocent, or hurt them in any way. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TheNeedsOfTheMany: This is the reason why Ramone Fleeceley sacrificed himself during Woolbur Fleeceley's flashback sequence in “Genesis of Good, Genesis of Evil.” Ramone felt like the lives of his younger brother and his fellow Rangers, were more important than his own. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/MoralityBallad: This is the purpose of a good number of songs that are played in “Power Rangers Multiverse Force”. A good number of times, they are used and utilized to explain any given moral concept that happens within any given episode. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/MiseryBuildsCharacter: While probably NONE of the Power Rangers would REALLY like to admit it, the numerous ordeals that Emperor Diabolica and Queen Beryl have put them through, have undoubtedly made them into better warriors, and has helped strengthen their already strong, moral concepts on where they stand as good guys. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/MindOverManners: While Captain Retro DOES have the ability to read minds, he always prefers to refrain from doing so, unless there is a NEED to do so, in the case of an emergency! Because Captain Retro feels like the mind is a sacred place, and needs to be respected as such. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/MachiavelliWasWrong: Always played straight by the Power Rangers. They never gain respect through fear or intimidation, they gain respect by saving the day and any innocent people who are being threatened by the forces of evil. Always DEFIED by Radiguet, as gaining respect through fear and intimidation, is the only way he WANTS to be respected! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/LackOfEmpathy: Radiguet and Doctor Maniac can EASILY be said to fit this trope! Radiguet just does it because “It Amuses Him”, while Doctor Maniac uses the Freudian Excuse of having had his son die, and he now wants to kill all organic life-forms on Core Earth as a form of Disproportionate Retribution! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/JusticeWillPrevail: This is the core belief of all the Power Ranger teams! No matter how tough things get, they will ALWAYS find a way to make sure good wins in the end! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ItsAllAboutMe: The main reason that Radiguet does ALL the things he does! Because he believes that when it comes right down to it, the only thing that even REMOTELY matters in the universe is HIMSELF, and whatever he wants to do! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/IncorruptiblePurePureness: Captain Retro is said to be this! Justified, because he is the CURRENT avatar of the Dog Guardian, Clifford, and is therefore, immune to being corrupted or tainted by the forces of evil! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HelpingWouldBeKillstealing: This is the main reason why Captain Retro doesn't intervene or help more often. Even though Captain Retro can easily help the Rangers out in a fight, he knows that the Rangers NEED to get stronger, in order to face off against MORE evil threats that will come to Core Earth, and the Rangers won't be able to GET stronger, if Captain Retro always comes to help them! And that's why Captain Retro will only intervene on their behalf, if it's absolutely necessary! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/GoodIsNotSoft: The Various Power Ranger teams have definitely proven themselves to be this! While they will always help the meek and the innocent, they're not above going above and beyond the call of duty, if the need calls for it! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/UnscrupulousHero: Kras'hir could be considered to be this; although it isn't entirely her fault, since she shares a connection to the Blood God, Khorne, and therefore has no choice but to go out and kill people, or go insane from the lack of doing so. Although to her credit, she DOES make it a point to ONLY kill people and creatures who are truly GUILTY of having committed heinous crimes and/or activities on Core Earth. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/RousseauWasRight: Played pretty much straight, at least in the normal version of Core Earth on “Power Rangers Multiverse Force.” For the majority of humans and other life-forms who are known to exist, a good number of them don't become evil unless certain circumstances push them into becoming evil! It's unknown whether this trope applies to the Nazi realm version of Core Earth. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/IgnoreTheFanservice: Captain Retro is capable of this, and always plays it straight. Of course, being a pure being of incorruptible goodness (namely, the current avatar of the Dog Guardian, Clifford), probably helps matters out a lot! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/GreaterNeedThanMine: Most Power Rangers always play this straight. Special mention goes out to Kendrix and Ramone Fleeceley, who willingly sacrificed their own lives in order to save the lives of their fellow Power Rangers! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/JapaneseSpirit: Played straight in “Power Rangers Multiverse Force.” While their morphing powers DO give them enhanced abilities, they have the ability to make those powers stronger, by training to become faster and mightier than they were initially! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/GoodIsNotDumb: With the exception of Justin, and T.J., during “Power Rangers Turbo”, and the entire team of “Power Rangers R.P.M.”, none of the Power Ranger teams can EVER be truly described as stupid! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/GoodFeelsGood: This is the reason why BlackHawk, Captain Retro, and D.O.G., behave the way they do. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TheGoldenRule: The main reason why the Power Rangers don't use their power for personal gain, or for revenge, because it is not the right thing to do. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/GoldenMoment: This usually occurs “Once per Episode”, in any given episode of Power Rangers, usually spelled out near the end of the episode. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ForGreatJustice: Most Power Rangers fight because of this trope. BlackHawk lives for it, and Captain Retro seems to have been MADE for it! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/EnemiesEqualsGreatness: Most villains in “Power Rangers” seem to think that this is the main reason to be evil. As long as they have people who hate their guts, they feel better about their nasty attitudes toward everyone else. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/DisappointedByTheMotive: Mostly everyone, especially Captain Retro, is disappointed that Radiguet's main reason for being evil, is that his own mother tried to MURDER him, seen in a flashback sequence in “Genesis of Good, Genesis of Evil.” http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AChatWithSatan: Talking with the Chaos Gods could certainly count as this, in “Laughter of the Thirsting Gods: Part I”. Although they more accurately consider themselves as having a code of “Blue and Orange Morality,” they can certainly NOT fit any human's definition of being nice and trustworthy, with the possible exception of Nurgle. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BeingEvilSucks: Sooner or later, it seems that every single villain on “Power Rangers” will find out that this trope will ALWAYS apply to them, as their evil plans RARELY, if EVER, work. And if they do, it NEVER benefits them in the long run! Possibly subverted and averted by Radiguet, who actually gets OFF on making the lives of OTHER evil villains MISERABLE! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BefriendingTheEnemy: Done by Omnus to Queen Hedrian starting in “Laughter of the Thirsting Gods: Part II.” The amazing part is, it actually WORKED! And by the time of “Follow You, Follow Me”, Queen Hedrian made a complete “Heel-Face Turn.” http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AboveGoodAndEvil: The Chaos Gods (the four main ones), and the Guardians, consider themselves this. They do not really concern themselves with the matters of humans, or what they consider to be good, evil, right, just, immoral, or wrong. Although to the credit of the Guardians, they are at least concerned with maintaining the balance between good and evil, and will utilize avatars to help them maintain that balance. Captain Retro is one of the current avatars. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/RepressedMemories: This is what Doctor Maniac has done to the memory of his son, in order to eliminate his own feelings and emotions. In fact, he's forgotten about his own son SO much, it's gotten to the point when Woolbur Fleeceley calls him OUT on it, all Doctor Maniac remembers about the day when it happened, he says: “But For Me It Was Tuesday”. Also counts as “Fridge Brilliance” on his part, since he actively NOTED that it WAS a Tuesday as it was happening, as seen in Woolbur's flashback sequence in “Genesis of Good, Genesis of Evil.” http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/PhotographicMemory: Captain Retro seems to have one of these, as he remembers MANY significant events of the past; when they happened, where they happened, who they involved, and any significant lasting impact that these events have on the present! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/DeathOfPersonality: Not only is this happening to Doctor Maniac, because he decided that the life of his own son should become Demoted Memories, he actually WANTS this to happen, because he believes that the death of his own emotions, will free him up to become concerned only with further improving upon his own scientific agenda, and not concerned with the well-being of others, regardless of how they feel about what is happening to him! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TheChosenMany: More like the Chosen Group, but it still counts. Each member of the main Power Rangers of the “Power Rangers Multiverse Force”, were chosen because Omnus, the Magi-Mother, and even Captain Retro, all had prophetic visions, that these seven Power Rangers would one day save Core Earth from the forces of evil, namely Radiguet! It helps that each one of them “Answered the Call,” and have since actively worked at making sure that their vision comes to pass! / That's enough tropes from me this time! Enough said, true believers!
  15. Sorry for my LONG delay in submitting some more tropes, but I finally have some more for you! I'm dreadfully sorry, but for some reason, my word program wouldn't allow me to copy the descriptions as long as they were hyperlinked, so I had to turn them into plain text. You can still find them in TV Tropes, though. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did researching them! / http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AbusiveParents: This is implied to have happened to Abby Mallard Little (BlackHawk's mother) when she was young. She was emotionally abused by her parents at the age of six, just because she looked ugly, and not pretty. This is her major Freudian Excuse for behaving the way she does, as she wants her two sons to experience all the winning and glory that she never got to experience. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BigNo: More examples include in “Land of Confusion: Part II”, Radiguet screamed out a big NO when he found out that Mirror Lettuce had been freed from being Brainwashed and Crazy! A more dramatic example includes “Follow You, Follow Me,” when Queen Hedrian found out from Omnus that Radiguet had (until Omnus mentally confronted Radiguet) consistently MIND RAPED Queen Hedrian, in the most SADISTIC matter possible! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BigShutUp: Whenever somebody annoys him, Doctor Maniac will always say one of these to the evil creature and/or creatures irritating him, followed by his trademark phrase: “Don't MAKE me turn you into Mulan Szechuan McNugget Sauce!” http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BluntYes: Has been used on at least two occasions in “Power Rangers Multiverse Force” so far. Once by Pinkie Pie, when Lettuce asked her if they were actually facing the commonly used, “Find an abandoned baby somewhere and have to take care of it until it's real parent/s come back for it” plot; and when Usagi asked Sans if she was facing the commonly used, “I saved your life, so now you're going to follow me annoyingly around until you pay me back” plot. In both cases, the character being asked it, replies with a blunt: “It is.” Then they turn around to face the Fourth Wall (the audience), and say: “Sorry, but we HAD to get around to doing it sooner or later!” http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/KirkSummation: Done by D.O.G., to Queen Hedrian in “Life is a Beach”; and one of Sans' trademarks is to say: “If you continue going on the way you are now, you're going to have a bad time” (which, if you have PLAYED or attempted to play a True Genocide Route or abort it right after he first says it in the game “Undertale”, than that phrase takes on a MUCH darker meaning). Also done by Captain Retro to Radiguet in “Vision Quest Part I: Head Games”. Of course, Radiguet refused to listen to it, which Captain Retro admitted that he FIGURED Radiguet wouldn't listen, but he had to TRY it anyways! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/KnightOfCerebus: The Brainwashed and Crazy Naruto, seen in “The Red Flaw” mini-arc, was the first sign that “Power Rangers Multiverse Force” was no longer going to be a purely comedic/action based monster of the week series, but a particular note is when General Crush was introduced, who was the first NON brainwashed adversary the Rangers had to face, who posed a genuine threat! But the biggest culprit for being a Knight of Cerebus, is ARGUABLY Radiguet! Even BEFORE he properly faces the Rangers, it is CLEAR that anyone who even KNOWS of him, FEARS him! And the fear proves to be not unfounded, as in his first proper appearance in the “Land of Confusion” two-part special, he manages to EASILY hold his own against seven morphed Rangers, and manages to survive TWO “No One Should Survive That” attacks, that would have worked against any other regular opponent the Power Rangers could meet! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/PromotionToParent: (Have I REALLY not put this down sooner?!) More like Promotion to Co-Parent, but it still counts. With the location of BlackHawk's dad, Ace Little unknown (later revealed to be dead), BlackHawk was kind of forced to become a co-parent with his mother, to his younger brother Coop. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/PsychicDreamsForEveryone: In “Vision Quest Part I: Head Games”, this initially only happened to BlackHawk and Captain Retro, where they both shared the same dream and/or vision about Ace being brought back to life. Later, Alma took all the Power Rangers, StarHawk, FireHawk, Kras'hir, and Captain Retro into a mental realm, where they could all see the same visions at the same time! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/SarcasticClapping: Done several times throughout the series, usually by a villain, and ALWAYS when something that someone else (usually by a good guy) said, doesn't IMPRESS them! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/DeliveryStork: Not only was this trope subverted, it was also given a big “Take That!”, in “Vision Quest Part I: Head Games”. During the Denial Vision, Pinkie Pie said out LOUD, that she HONESTLY thought that the way she was born, was that a Magical Stork from Canterlot brought her as a baby, to her mother and father. Ebony than SLAPPED her in the face, and YELLED the blunt truth into her ears! The reason it's a big “Take That”, is because Pinkie said her statement out loud, and unintentionally proved just how patently RIDICULOUS the concept actually is, especially when somebody actually says it out loud for everyone to hear! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/WeUsedToBeFriends: Hinted at in “Origins”, when Omnus mentioned that he and Emperor Diabolica USED to be friends, back when Diabolica was a Red Ranger. But that changed, once Diabolica did his “Face-Heel Turn”. Seen in better detail in “Shock the Monkey”, when Lazlo is emotionally SHOCKED that Raj no longer THINKS of Lazlo as a friend. It's a result from a “Noodle Incident” that happened when they were younger at Camp Kidney, where they ended up kissing each other. Raj fell in love with Lazlo, but Lazlo did NOT return the same love to Raj, driving Raj to anger and jealousy! Sadly, before they had a chance to try to make up, Psygorn mutated Raj into a monster, forcing the Rangers to destroy him (and Raj briefly managed to TELL them to save him by destroying him), therefore, making it a case of “Death Equals Redemption” for Raj. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/IncestIsRelative: Seeing as this is the relationship that is happening between StarHawk and FireHawk, this one is kind of obvious. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BestialityIsDepraved: Word of God is, that the romantic relationship between BlackHawk and D.O.G (who was still an ordinary canine at the time)., was originally supposed to start back in “Baby, Be Mine.” However, this was nixed because the authors of “Power Rangers Multiverse Force” thought that would be a bridge too far. It was pushed back to AFTER D.O.G., had become anthropomorphic, in “Vision Quest Part I: Head Games”, in order to make the relationship be more palatable for general audiences. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AllGaysArePromiscuous: Mostly subverted and averted in “Power Rangers Multiverse Force”. Billy and Rocky are loyal to each other, Alphys and Undyne are loyal to each other, and StarHawk and FireHawk are loyal to each other. However, Kras'hir and Undyne HAVE had moments where they loved MORE than just each other. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ClosetKey: Unintentionally done by D.O.G., to BlackHawk in “Vision Quest Part I: Head Games”. When the anthropomorphic D.O.G., revealed that he truly loved BlackHawk, BlackHawk realized that he loved D.O.G., as well, and was actually, bi-sexual. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/FakeRelationship: As far as EVERYONE who ISN'T StarHawk and FireHawk are concerned, FireHawk's relationship with StarHawk is THIS, personified! Of course, with FireHawk being who she is, it is currently unknown at this time whether she will fully confirm this or not. And while Radiguet is TECHNICALLY in a marriage with Maria with a SON named Tranza; because Radiguet has brainwashed Maria and doesn't even REALLY love her, it still counts as this trope, as well. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/FalseSoulmate: Poor BlackHawk. This has happened to him not once, not twice, not even THRICE! It has happened to him at LEAST five times! Once when he was a Gunslinger (revealed via flash-back), once in “Life is a Beach” with Viola/Vipera, once in “The Laughter of the Thirsting Gods: Part II” with Ebony, once in “Where My Demons Hide” with StarHawk, once AGAIN with Ebony (and depending on whether you count it as a joint or a separate relationship), once with Toby. Of course, Ebony herself is no slouch in this department, having fallen out of love with Draco Malfoy, BlackHawk twice, and an unconfirmed number of people that she slept with while she was at Hogwarts. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/FreeLoveFuture: This is basically the philosophy that Lazlo and some of his friends from Camp Kidney follow. They are all romantically involved with each other, yet they aren't in any real committed marriage relationships with any of each other (with the exception of Samson and Almondine). However, since it's only THEM who practice this belief, it's more like a, Selective Free Love Future. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/GiveGeeksAChance: This was basically Ebony's attitude towards Toby, after falling out of love with BlackHawk. Because of this, Ebony and Toby are pretty much a canon relationship couple within this series by now! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/LaughOfLove: Pinkie Pie often does this whenever in the presence of Lettuce. Even better, Lettuce actually TRIES to be funny, because he KNOWS that Pinkie loves to laugh, and she loves it whenever he makes her laugh! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/LoveConfession and http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/LoveEpiphany: Has happened on several occasions in “Power Rangers Multiverse Force”. Most recently, in “Vision Quest Part I: Head Games”, with the anthropomorphic D.O.G., admitting he loved BlackHawk, and BlackHawk realizing he loved the anthropomorphic D.O.G., back. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/LoveFloats: Happened to Smash Swallow in “All is Fair, or Not!”, when he realized he loved the Pink Ranger (who unbeknownst to him, is ALSO Pinkie Pie, his PREVIOUS crush!) Also happened to BlackHawk in “Life is a Beach!”, when he thought he was in love with Viola/Vipera! Justified in both cases, as both Smash Swallow and BlackHawk are bird creatures, and can fly! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/LoveIsAWeakness: Doctor Maniac and Radiguet both feel this way in regards to their views on what they want to achieve. Doctor Maniac actually HAS a “Freudian Excuse” in the fact that his son, Prince Maniac died, and he wants to enact “Disproportionate Retribution” by getting RID of all organic life forms on Core Earth, and loving something would get in the way of that; Radiguet doesn't even USE the potential Freudian Excuse of his Mother trying to murder him to excuse HIS behavior! The only reason he married Maria and had a SON with her, was so that everyone ELSE in the universe would STOP calling Radiguet “GAY,” (which is actually for the best, since that's ACTUALLY one of Radiguet's many “Berserk Buttons” to beware of!) http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/LoveRedeems: Happened to Queen Hedrian, of all people! Despite having already married twice, once to Demon King Banriki, and once to Emperor Diabolica, she revealed that she didn't truly love EITHER of those men! But when she sought refuge with Omnus, he revealed he truly loved her, it slowly began to CHANGE her attitudes towards the Power Rangers and Core Earth as well. It wasn't until a horrific event in “Follow You, Follow Me,” after Omnus revealed that Radiguet had been MIND Raping her without her even realizing it, that Queen Hedrian FINALLY had her “Heel Realization”, and finally completed her “Heel-Face Turn” to be on the side of good! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TheMatchmaker: Abby Mallard Little once TRIED to be this between BlackHawk and StarHawk, in trying to hook them up together, in order to make BlackHawk “A Winner.” To make a “Dramatic Understatement”, it did NOT end well! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/MuggleMageRomance: This is technically the relationship status between Ebony and Toby, even though Ebony's professionalism at magic (or rather, lack thereof), would make her more of an “Inept Mage” than an actual witch, while Toby certainly can't be called normal; besides being a Power Ranger, he is also an accomplished Pokemon trainer, who knows at LEAST four whole generations (the first four) of Pokemon that can be caught! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TastesLikeDiabetes: According to Abby Mallard Little in “Shock the Monkey!”, this is what Pinkie's and Lettuce's relationship together, feels like to HER! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AkashicRecords: According to Captain Retro, in “Vision Quest Part I: Head Games”, the Dog Guardian Clifford (though Captain Retro mentions other alias' he has gone by) is a living version of this! He has seen all that has been, and all that will be! Of course, to be fair about the whole thing, Clifford can only preserve the balance of life between good and evil, and cannot actively choose sides, which is why he needs someone like Captain Retro to do the ground work for him. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AlienInvasion: Most seasons of “Power Rangers”, and “Power Rangers Multiverse Force” itself, wouldn't even be POSSIBLE without the usage of this trope! Examples include “Mighty Morphing Power Rangers” (all three seasons), “Power Rangers Turbo”, “Power Rangers in Space”, “Power Rangers Lost Galaxy”, “Power Rangers S.P.D.”, “Power Rangers Megaforce”, and “Power Rangers Super Mega Force”. “Power Rangers Zeo” doesn't count because the invaders were sentient machines, and not aliens. “Power Rangers Time Force” doesn't count because they were mutants from the future. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Shapeshifting: Keller, Mirror, and Vipera, have all been capable of this to some degree. Keller could change into a shield, Mirror could change into a mirror (“Meaningful name”), and Vipera could change into both a viper (a type of snake), and a normal-looking human. Radiguet has so far, shown to be capable of being able to shape-shift into a DRAGON!!!! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Teleportation: The main form of travel in all three seasons of “Mighty Morphing Power Rangers”, “Power Rangers Zeo”, and “Power Rangers Turbo”. Phased out during and after “Power Rangers in Space”, but brought back (in certain circumstances), in “Power Rangers Dino Thunder”, and fully utilized in “Power Rangers Multiverse Force”. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AliensSpeakingEnglish: For the most part, this is the rule that ALL aliens follow, in any given season of “Power Rangers”, and “Power Rangers Multiverse Force”. Of course, there are “Exceptions to the Rule”. Namely, native Hawkians who have NOT learned English, tend to speak in a series of screeches and cries! Emperor Diabolica also sometimes speaks Tauran, but usually only when he's reciting a magic spell. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AllMythsAreTrue: Given the nature of “Power Rangers” and “Power Rangers Multiverse Force”, it's possible for any and ALL myths to be the truth! Of course, various seasons of the “Power Rangers” will vary as to which myths are true. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AlternateRealityEpisode: This is what the “Land of Confusion” two-part episode was about, and any episode in season two of “Power Rangers Multiverse Force”, involving the Nazi Realm Dimension. In the former, the Power Rangers visited a mirror dimension where Radiguet SUCCEEDED in draining the power of the Chaos Gods, and made THAT dimension's version of the Power Rangers, “Brainwashed and Crazy”! In the latter, the Nazi Realm Dimension is “Exactly What it Says on the Tin”, and it showcases an Alternate Earth where the Nazi's and the Axis Nations won World War II. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/CasualInterstellarTravel: Conquering planets and galaxies are no problems for a good number of evil villains, that threaten Earth in various seasons of the “Power Rangers”, and “Power Rangers Multiverse Force” itself! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/DescriptivelyNamedSpecies: This is the case for the Aquatarians, the Hawkians, and the Woolians. Woolbur Fleeceley even makes a “Lampshade Hanging” about how his species are named SPECIFICALLY for the fact that they are covered in wool like a sheep, noting that the name existed LONG before HE ever came about! / That's it for my trope selections this time! Enough said, true believers!
  16. Some more tropes for you: Bittersweet Ending/Downer Ending: A good amount of the episodes in season 2 tend to have these endings (mostly bittersweet, but downer endings have happened before), in contrast of the more idealistic and victorious endings of season 1. Black and Gray Morality: The Rangers, starting in season 2, have done more morally questionable things to battle their foes, who are truly monstrous beings (especially the Nazis). Black and White Morality: Compare this to season 1, which operated on a strictly black-and-white basis of morality (Rangers = good, Diabolica = evil). Cowboy Episode: "Heroes and Villains" was this, as well as a Whole Episode Flashback for Blackhawk and a Genre Deconstruction of the spaghetti western. Eldritch Abomination: Prominent examples include the Chaos Gods and the Crimson King (who, in a bit of trivia, is one of only two beings Radiguet truly fears; the other is the God-Emperor of Mankind). Heroes With Bad Publicity: The Rangers are this in the eyes of Coastal Falls' inhabitants. To them, they are child soldiers who the Federation basically gives free employment rather than deal with threats via military intervention. They also view the Rangers as "heroes" who don't care about anything else except for battling monsters. Some of the Rangers' actions have done nothing to help. Monster of the Week: It's Power Rangers. What did you expect? Though it isn't as prevalent in season 2 due to Greyknight joining Renegade and 4EverGreen (and therefore bringing a longer, more dramatic and character-based writing style with him), MOTWs are still present in the series. Really 700 Years Old: Blackhawk might be this due to the space-time continuum on All-World, his place of birth, slowly breaking down. Those Wacky Nazis: A faction of Nazis from an alternate universe where the Reich won World War II, gained control of the world, and have highly advanced technology (up to an including immortality inducers) target Core Earth starting in "Germany Rising". Though for now, they are merely observing and awaiting a perfect opportunity to invade.
  17. I'm going to contribute a small list of tropes, though they aren't too many: Batman Gambit: What kicks off "The Red Flaw" arc from season 1. Diabolica uses the same MOTW tactic (see Strictly Formula below) as a distraction so that his real plan to transform Naruto into the Blood Ranger can be put into motion. Breather Episode: As a general rule, 4EverGreen's season 2 episodes tend to act as this (especially to more intense episodes such as Germany Rising), though they aren't devoid of plot and character development. Cerebus Syndrome: Gradually underwent this; the series started out as an homage to early Power Rangers and was lighthearted, goofy, and generally episodic, with a set formula. At around the Red Flaw arc, the first seeds of the Cerebus Syndrome were planted: it was the first "serious" arc of the series, generally dropping the MOTW element, and focusing more on the characters, as well as introducing the Chaos Gods and their connections to the Ranger powers. Afterwards, the series returned to formula, though the stakes grew higher and higher until the season 1 finale, which set the tone for the next season. Despite this, the series still alternates between darker, character-driven episodes (written by Renegade and Greyknight) and more action-adventure episodes (written by 4EverGreen); it also keeps its sense of humor, unlike a good amount of other works that went through a similar process. Canon Welding: As a Massive Multiplayer Crossover, PR: MVF does quite a bit of it. There are fat too many examples to list. Darker and Edgier: Season 2 compared to Season 1, as seen under Cerebus Syndrome. In fairness, the latter was not without its darker moments. Early Installment Weirdness: Yes. Among other things, the series was very blatant in its MMPR homages (until it found its footing with "The Red Flaw" arc in Season 1), Vipera spoke in Ssssnake Talk for the first few episodes, the Chaos Gods weren't a part of the series' lore yet (and the Forces of Chaos were simply the "Make My Monster Grow" method), and Core Earth actually being a technically post-apocalyptic Terra was not mentioned nor implied until the end of the first season. Strictly Formula: A majority of season 1 was this, as follows: Rangers do something (usually presenting a problem of the week), villains create a monster, cue alert from Omnus and Alpha, morph, fight cannon fodder, fight monster, cue Power Blaster Cannon and first monster defeat, Make My Monster Grow, summon Zords, battle monster, cue second monster defeat, villains throw fit over being defeated, Rangers return to whatever they were doing, the problem of the week finally solved. The series does return to formula from time to time in season 2, usually in episodes written by 4EverGreen. Whole Plot Reference: Believe it or not, "The Laughter of Thirsting Gods: Part I" was this to Dante's Inferno, with Kras'hir in Virgil's role as a guide, the Rangers in Dante's role as the traveler(s), and the Warp/Chaos Realm acting as the Circles of Hell. In another example, a few of PR: MVF's early episodes were these to several MMPR episodes (see Early Installment Weirdness).
  18. I'm probably a little biased; but, "Virtual Insanity; Life is a Beach; Orange Crush Part I-II; Hot-Blooded; Wooly Bully; Baby, Be Mine; Shock the Monkey"; and "Follow You, Follow Me" (so far!)
  19. Sorry for the long delay! Here are some more writing tropes! / http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/RedemptionPromotion: Happened to Rita AFTER she became the Magi Mother! In “Shock the Monkey”, When Alpha Eight scanned her energy, it registered at 180,000; which he said was ten times MORE powerful than she EVER was when she was evil! By contrast, her sister Queen Hedrian (who STILL considers HERSELF evil DESPITE being heavily out-classed by Queen Beryl), only registers to a power level of 16,660; which she TOTALLY doesn't believe! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/FetishRetardant: Whenever characters are FORCED to have sex together, or, just as equally bad in its own way, ACTUALLY related by blood like StarHawk and Firehawk are, it is ALWAYS this example! Also overlaps with http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/NauseaFuel! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/IAmNotShazam: This should be a FAIRLY obvious example, but despite having the heroic title of “Sailor Moon,” the heroine actually HAS a real name! Usagi is the REAL name of the heroine, Sailor Moon! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ThatOneRule: From the perspectives of StarHawk and FireHawk, the ONE rule that's harder for them to understand (and follow), is the rule that siblings are NOT supposed to marry (or make intimate love), with each other on Core Earth, no matter WHAT their Hawkian (alien) custom traditions happen to be! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BreadEggsMilkSquick: Often the talking habit of FireHawk, and to a lesser degree, StarHawk. They will often talk to each other, or to other characters, and they will make what is to THEM, a casual remark about them having LOVE with each other, often dropped into a conversation that was TOTALLY unrelated to that! More often, the main villains will often dive into this territory; talking about their plans of BRUTAL conquest, dropped into a series of items that are far LESS squeamish! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/DrivesLikeCrazy: Once done on purpose by Toby in "Get Your Motor Running." Granted, he was trying (in futility) to outrace the fancy hover bike owned by Bash and Smash on his ordinary bicycle. Needless to say, it didn't end well. And once done accidentally by Coop in “Baby, Be Mine”. Because he was only thirteen and obviously didn't and COULDN'T have a driver's license yet, he decided to use a magic spell to ride on BlackHawk's Vespa to where BlackHawk and all the Power Rangers were meeting. For Coop, he arrived at his destination safely. But because Coop was invisible at the time (“It Makes Sense, in Context”), people who saw it FREAKED out, and Coop immediately realized that he, “Did Not Think This Through”, but decided to file it away for FUTURE reference, because he felt like he needed to find out that BlackHawk and his friends, were indeed, Power Rangers! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/EscapeArtist: Woolbur Fleeceley can be considered this after he “Took a Level in Awesome!” In “Genesis of Good, Genesis of Evil”; NONE of the S.P.D. Power Rangers OR Woolbur could escape from one of Doctor Maniac's death traps WITHOUT one of them PRESUMABLY having to sacrifice himself! Fast-forward to later in his life, in “Shock the Monkey,” where Woolbur Fleeceley managed to use his OWN natural strength to BREAK out of his rope bonds EASILY, proving that he was http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/CapturedOnPurpose in an effort to get Doctor Maniac to divulge some USEFUL secrets to him! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre: Often said to Usagi. Despite all her accomplishments as Sailor Moon and as a Power Ranger, Usagi STILL only sees herself as an ordinary teenage girl just trying to do the right thing. So when she doubts her own self-worth, someone (usually Omnus or Kras'hir); tells her that she's a LOT more capable than she THINKS she is, and it SNAPS her out of her self-doubt! Ramone Fleeceley also said self-motivating positive affirmations to his younger brother Woolbur Fleeceley. Sadly, it was shortly before Ramone Fleeceley was SEEMINGLY killed by Dr. Maniac's evil trap! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AdvantageBall: Most of the time, the Power Rangers hold the Advantage Ball in fights, simply by the virtue that they are the GOOD guys who are TRYING to beat the bad guys! But a couple of times, it was a LITTLE more complicated than that! In “The Red Flaw” mini-arc, the Power Rangers could not over-power a “Brainwashed and Crazy” Naruto, even WITH the help of BlackHawk; until Naruto was able to unleash his secret Ninetales Battlizer mode (with the “Power of Love”), and was able to defeat the demon that had hijacked his body! Also, in “Orange Crush: Part One”, nobody could even SCRATCH General Crush, until BlackHawk FINALLY unlocked the true potential of the Orange Ruby, becoming the Orange Spinosaurus Ranger, and was able to utilize his FULL powers against General Crush, by sending him BACK to the Chaos Realm! Finally, it's a guarantee that if you PRESS Usagi's “Berserker Button” by FORCING her to do something she DOESN'T want to do, or by threatening to HURT adoptive daughter Sally Anne (“Would Hurt a Child”), the Advantage Ball will ALWAYS (so far) be held by Usagi! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ArtisticLicenseMartialArts: The Power Rangers often invoke this trope. It's justified for the bad guys, who are evil space aliens or mutated beasts, who can use, and/or have been genetically altered to use super-natural martial arts with ease. Justified with BlackHawk, StarHawk, and FireHawk as they are Hawkians, who can LEARN super-natural martial arts through extreme training and diligence! And since Naruto and Usagi use super-natural martial art techniques in their respective cartoons, it makes sense that they can use THOSE moves in this series as well! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BlockingStopsAllDamage: Not so much as even NEEDING to block, as in “Orange Crush: Part One,” General Crush was SO impervious to attacks, he didn't even NEED to block in order to stop any damage. And even though Undyne could PHYSICALLY hurt him, he just HEALED his damage! But when BlackHawk finally transformed into the Orange Spinosaurus Ranger for the first time, and COULD hurt General Crush, BlackHawk didn't even GIVE General Crush a CHANCE to block, and just kicked his butt! Later played straight, and than subverted, in “Land of Confusion: Part One.” When the Power Rangers fought the Mirror Radiguet, he was able to BLOCK most of their attacks, and when he did, he NULLIFIED all the damage! But when the Power Rangers started to COMBINE their individual attacks, such as Naruto and Usagi combining their fire sword and wind staff attacks, Radiguet STILL blocked their attack, but he yelled that it STILL actually hurt him! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight: This was the whole basis of “The Red Flaw” mini-arc. Naruto became a “Brainwashed and Crazy” warrior thanks to Emperor Diabolica; and the Rangers (with BlackHawk), were forced to fight against Naruto, while trying to REMIND Naruto of who he truly was! They were eventually able to succeed through “The Power of Love.” http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/OneHitKill: The Multi-Megazord, and Cosmic Multi-Megazord attack with the Power Sword, is usually enough to finish off ANY giant monster in one blow! But when an enemy is actually STRONG Enough to “No-Sell” the technique, the Power Rangers resort to the Ultrazord (“Taken to Eleven”), in order to finish the job! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/SpeedBlitz: The first example of a fighter being a “Lightning Bruiser”, is General Crush in “Orange Crush: Part One”. He was able to move SO fast, that NOBODY (save for BlackHawk), could even SEE him move! It was only when BlackHawk transformed into the Orange Spinosaurus Power Ranger for the first time, that BlackHawk could actually SURPASS General Crush in speed, and therefore, be able to BEAT him! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/SpinToDeflectStuff: This is how the Ankylo Shield technique was used for the Original Multi-Megazord. By utilizing this protective shield technique, they could DEFLECT any blow that was intended to KNOCK them back! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ToWinWithoutFighting: In “Genesis of Good, Genesis of Evil”, BlackHawk revealed that THIS was how he managed to FREE everyone who was trapped in the underground! Seeing as how the whole POINT of “Undertale” (at least, IF you're going to do the TRUE Pacifist Run), is to NOT fight any of the beings you encounter there, it makes sense that this is how BlackHawk was able to ESCAPE from the Underground! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/OpenSaysMe: Played for laughs in “Shock the Monkey”. BlackHawk was trying to guess the secret pass code number to enter into Doctor Maniac's secret forest base, only to fail each time he tried! When Lettuce was seemingly NOT helping, by making an ANNOYING buzzer sound every time BlackHawk failed to open the door, BlackHawk quipped that Lettuce COULDN'T do any better!! But Lettuce simply grabbed OUT his Power weapon, a powerful hammer, and Lettuce simply broke DOWN the door, much to BlackHawk's frustration! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/PrisonEpisode: A good chunk of “Shock the Monkey” was this, as when Woolbur and D.O.G., got captured by Dr. Maniac's evil forces, they were forced to spend a good portion of the episode TRAPPED in Dr. Maniac's sinister jail cells, along with several of the main characters of “Camp Lazlo!” http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/DeadlyEnvironmentPrison: Naturally, Dr. Maniac's secret hidden prision in “Shock the Monkey” was this. While the jail cells themselves weren't too bad, they were being GUARDED by several of Dr. Maniac's sinister goons! And even worse, the prison had a testing lab, were Dr. Maniac and his goons would conduct evil, diabolical experiments on the main characters of “Camp Lazlo,” all “For the Science!!!!” http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AbortedArc: In season two of the series “Power Rangers Multiverse Force”; the main reason StarHawk was introduced in “Baby, Be Mine” was to set up an entire sub-plot of BlackHawk and StarHawk falling in love with each other during the season! But no sooner was this idea set up, was it completely taken down!! The arc was aborted when StarHawk was revealed to be a lesbian lover; first with Usagi and Kras'hir, and then with her OWN sister! And yes; it IS as BAD as it sounds! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AdaptationNameChange: Although D.O.G., and General Shogun do INDEED come from “Super Sentai Denziman” originally, they had different NAMES in their original series. D.O.G., was called I.C., for “Intelligent Canine,” and General Shogun had a DIFFICULT to pronounce and spell Japanese name! Also, from “Super Sentai Bioman”, Dr. Maniac and Prince Maniac, were originally just called Dr. Man and Prince respectively, while Bio Gorilla just went by the name of Monster. In each of the name changes, the names were changed in order to be easier to be remembered, and be more unique for the American viewer/reader! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/QuirkyGood: Pinkie Pie, Sans, Papyrus, D.O.G., Captain Retro, Alphys, and StarHawk, can all be considered this trope, for their own unique view-points on life. However, it has been shown on at least one occasion, in “Shock the Monkey”, that Captain Retro can completely DROP his quirky attitude when he needs to, and get QUITE serious! When he does, it's an alert to EVERYONE that “OoC (Out of Character) is Serious Business!” http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ReformedButNotTamed: This is the situation that the Power Rangers currently find themselves in, with Kras'hir, Queen Hedrian, and FireHawk, all for different reasons. Although Kras'hir is firmly on the side of the Power Rangers, due to her Chaos Demon nature, she STILL has to go out and technically KILL humans (although thankfully, she has DECIDED to only kill the BAD ones), so that she doesn't go berserk and INSANE at an inconvenient moment! Queen Hedrian, having lost TWO husbands (one to death, and one to abandonment), her ENTIRE army of loyal monsters, and having nowhere else she can go, has decided to seek refuge with Omnus, and become an “Aloof Ally” to the Power Rangers. But for good reasons, the Power Rangers STILL don't completely trust her yet! And while FireHawk unleashed the deadly Necrons on Planet Hawkia in the past, becoming banished from Planet Hawkia as a result, she is apparently no longer evil as she used to be, as she has so far kept her word that she would NOT harm her younger sister, StarHawk, and she HAS managed to get rid of Usagi's connection to Khorne, ridding Usagi of her blood-lust instinct. However, there is a very good chance, that FireHawk has some ULTERIOR motives in mind! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Queen Hedrian, Demon King Banriki, Emperor Diabolica, and Queen Beryl, ALL fit this trope! Demon King Banriki actually FOUGHT against the Power Rangers! Queen Hedrian was very hands on, in attempting to cast spells and create monster for the Power Rangers to fight against! Emperor Diabolica personally created some monsters, and attempted to fight the Power Rangers, before being whisked away to the Chaos Realm, and Queen Beryl actually KILLED her traitorous servant, Jaedite! Prince Maniac doesn't count, because despite actually doing something, Prince Maniac is his ACTUAL name, and not a title! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/SadisticChoice: It's a well-established rule in “Power Rangers Multi-verse Force”, that you NEVER want to run into Radiguet! And if you DO run into Radiguet, you NEVER want to fight him! And if you DO fight Radiguet, you never, ever, EVER want to MAKE Radiguet MAD, or you will DIE by the hands of Radiguet! And when Radiguet decides that he wants to KILL somebody, he will ALWAYS choose to do it; in the most SADISTIC of ways currently available to him! If you're lucky, he'll just kill you QUICKLY and effortlessly! If you're unlucky, he WILL draw out your TORTURE and pain for as LONG as it amuses his twisted sense of enjoyment! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ShutUpHannibal: According to BlackHawk, this is Captain Retro's go-to phrase for dealing with bad guys who are trying to TALK to you in your mind, using telepathy! BlackHawk himself, has utilized this technique TWICE! First, against Chara, in “Genesis of Good, Genesis of Evil”, and he revealed that he also did it against Khorne SOMETIME before “The Laughter of the Thirsting Gods: Part One”, since BlackHawk was actually Khorne's FIRST choice for a loyal servant, NOT Usagi! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TheSmartGuy: It's a given, that in any team of Power Rangers, no matter how big or small, they will always have at LEAST one smart guy to fall back on, for any special ideas on how to deal with a bad guy. The Mighty Morphing Power Rangers had Billy and Zordon; the Lost Galaxy Power Rangers had Kai; the Power Rangers Time Force had Trip; the Power Rangers Dino Thunder had Ethan and Tommy; the Power Rangers S.P.D., had Bridge and Kruger; and the Power Rangers Jungle Fury had R.J.! The Power Rangers Multi-verse Force themselves, have Toby, Lettuce, and Omnus. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/SpecialAttack: Both the bad guys, and the Power Rangers, will often utilize techniques that utilize some form of energy, during a fight. And if a technique is combined with another one, it will always be more affective (and more effective), than either technique would be alone! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/StandardSuperheroSuits: All Power Ranger teams have their own unique, individual set of Power Suits to protect them from attacks, with the rule that the sixth Rangers and Battlelizers, are usually better at protecting and attacking than the normal Power Ranger suits are! tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/SamusIsAGirl: The whole point of re-introducing the Phantom Ranger into “Power Rangers Multi-verse Force,” was to solve the MYSTERY of who the Phantom Ranger was! In this continuity, the Phantom Ranger IS a GIRL!!!! Specifically, StarHawk from the planet Hawkia! / That's enough for today! Enough said!
  20. I'm sorry for the long wait between posting here last, but I wanted to wait until I had written an episode of my own, to comment on things that happened before the episode BEFORE that! But I am ready, now! I hope you enjoy reading these tropes, as much as I did finding them! / http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AuthorsSavingThrow: It was BOUND to happen sooner or later, with three different people writing “Power Rangers Multiverse Force”, but the revelation that StarHawk was a LESBIAN in “Where Our Demons Lie”, and into three-way relationships, came out of NOWHERE !!!! So in “Genesis of Good, Genesis of Evil”, one of the other authors “Ret-Conned” the aspect of StarHawk's Lesbian tendencies, to have been WITH her all along, since at LEAST the year 2028 (“It Makes Sense, in Context”); and it was as a result of her sister, FireHawk; cursing her! The reason for doing so, was that StarHawk was the one who turned her in, and therefore, got FireHawk BANISHED from her Home Planet of Hawkia, as a result! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/CatharsisFactor: Whenever BlackHawk needs to get rid of his angst, his anger, or any OTHER various sets of negative emotions he might be feeling; he always chooses to get his anger out in a constructive, and positive way; by choosing to train in the Simulation Planet, that Omnus and Alpha Eight have set up for the Power Rangers. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/DesignatedMonkey: This is the fate that has befallen “Power Rangers Turbo” member, Justin, in-universe! Even as an ADULT, and the CURRENT S.P.D. Blue Ranger, living in the “Power Rangers S.P.D.” time-line of 2028; the other Power Rangers STILL won't let Justin EVER forget about the fact, that HE and his FELLOW Power Rangers actually LOST to Wimpy Space Pirate, Divatox! However, “Word of God” says that Justin will not ALWAYS be the Designated Monkey, and that fate may someday fall to be shared equally with Ebony (mostly deserved), and Toby (mostly undeserved). http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments: If the moment of BlackHawk freeing EVERYONE from the Underground (including Flowey), in “Genesis of Good, Genesis of Evil”, by following the TRUE Pacifist Route, doesn't qualify for this trope, than NOTHING does! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/OneTrueThreesome: In “Where Our Demons Lie”, this is what Usagi, Kras'hir, and StarHawk, were designated to be! Only time will tell if this relationship manages to stand the test of time or not. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ShockingSwerve: If the sudden revelation that StarHawk was a LESBIAN and into three-way relationships doesn't qualify for THIS trope, than NOTHING does! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TooCoolToLive: Seems to be the fate of Ramone Fleeceley, Woolbur's older brother, during Woolbur's flash-back sequence in “Genesis of Good, Genesis of Evil.” Ramone Fleeceley was briefly shown to be a “Cool Older Brother,” who selflessly rescued Woolbur from the clutches of the EVIL Dr. Maniac; than selflessly sacrificed himself in order to let the other Rangers get out of a trap that they had all fallen INTO!!!! Also the fate of Prince Maniac, Doctor Maniac's son, who wanted to do NOTHING more than to be a great Rock Star Musician, as he was seemingly struck DOWN by Psygorn, the “Big Bad Wannabe!” However, “Word of God” says, that it might BE possible that BOTH Ramone and Prince Maniac might not BE as dead as they both APPEAR to be! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/UnintentionallySympathetic: Ends up happening in-universe, to Queen Hedrian of all people! In “Genesis of Good, Genesis of Evil”, Omnus revealed that he foresaw Rito Revolto falling to his death in “The Laughter of Thirsting Gods: Part Two”, and he couldn't BEAR the thought of the same thing happening to Queen Hedrian! So he made a “Deal with the Devil” (or in this case, FOUR of them), the Four Main Chaos Gods, to SPARE Queen Hedrian's life, in exchange for EACH of the Four Main Chaos Gods getting one of the Power Rangers to 'mentor,' for their OWN nefarious purposes! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: Some aspects of “Power Rangers Multiverse Force” are SO surreal (such as, six of the main Power Rangers getting pixelated forms when they traveled into the Morphing Grid in “Virtual Insanity;” the great, GRUELING ordeal that WAS the Chaos Realm in “Laughter of the Thirsting Gods: Part One”; or the animated musical sequence that happened during Woolbur Fleeceley's flash-back in “Genesis of Good, Genesis of Evil”), that some people might MISTAKENLY think that THOSE parts of the story MUST have been made on Drugs! But a confirmation from the “Word of God,” can safely say, that NO PARTS of “Power Rangers Multiverse Force”, have EVER been made on drugs of ANY kind! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HopeSpot: Happened to Woolbur Fleeceley and the other S.P.D. Power Rangers not once, but TWICE; during Woolbur Fleeceley's flash-back sequence in “Genesis of Good, Genesis of Evil”! After Woolbur and four of the S.P.D. Power Rangers escaped from the trash compactor, leaving Ramone Fleeceley who HAD to stay behind in order to free the rest of them, Bridge suggested that maybe there was still time to go back and SAVE him; only to hear the SICKENING CRUSH of the Trash Compactor, causing Woolbur Fleecely to scream out a “Big NO!!!!”, and cry his heart out! Then, when Prince Maniac offered to turn himself in, and work AGAINST his own father (who wasn't ALLOWING him to follow his own dreams, anyways), the Rangers took Prince Maniac up on his offer, only for PSYGORN to come along, and seemingly BURN Prince Maniac to death, and FRAME the Rangers for doing it, RIGHT before their very eyes! Needless to say, Woolbur Fleeceley was NOT the least bit HAPPY about this! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/KatanasAreJustBetter: The whole purpose of Master Vile's PERSONAL assortment of body-guards, the five, female squadron he calls the “Mighty Morphing Katana Rangers”, revealed in “Genesis of Good, Genesis of Evil”! They don't just have LOOKS to DIE for; they could LITERALLY KILL somebody, if they ever get a good opportunity to DO so! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/LetsGetOutOfHere: Justified during Woolbur Fleeceley's flash-back sequence, in “Genesis of Good, Genesis of Evil.” A trash compactor was going to come DOWN on them, and they didn't have TIME to argue about who was going to stay behind and keep the ESCAPE door open for the rest of them! Of course Woolbur Fleeceley STILL didn't want to LEAVE his older brother behind! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/MyNameIsInigoMontoya: Woolbur Fleeceley has ALSO used this trope, once, during his flash-back sequence in “Genesis of Good, Genesis of Evil.” Justified, because Dr. Maniac just CALLED him a Green fleeced TWERP, trying to “Kick the Dog” while he's down, by mocking him about his older brother just seemingly died, and it's the SAME thing Dr. Maniac did to the original Yellow Ranger of the “Power Rangers Bionic Force!” But THIS pushed Woolbur's “Berserk Button,” and resulted in a moment of “The Dog Bites Back”, and Woolbur said: “I HAVE a NAME!!!! I'm WOOLBUR FLEECELEY!!!! YOU KILLED MY BROTHER!!!! PREPARE TO DIE!!!!” And in a BURST of adrenaline, he quickly and EFFORTLESSLY, cuts OFF Dr. Maniac's left arm with an “Insanely Sharp Blade!” Could also count as a “Did You Just Punch Out Cthulu?” Moment, and a “Crowning Moment of Awesome!” http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ThisWayToCertainDeath: In “The Laughter of the Thirsting Gods: Part One”, the entirety of the Chaos Realm was FULL of it, no matter WHICH Chaos God (save possibly, for Nurgle's), the Rangers wound up in! Justified, in that it IS the Chaos Realm, which is a “Meaningful Name,” and “Exactly What it Says on the Tin”. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TrashLanding: When designated Butt-monkey Justin TRIPPED the hidden mechanism that led the S.P.D. Power Rangers and Woolbur into a dangerous trap, during Woolbur's flash-back sequence in “Genesis of Good, Genesis of Evil”, the place that they landed just HAPPENED to be a VERY active, and very DANGEROUS Trash Compactor! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TrialOfTheMysticalJury: Justified, and subverted during StarHawk's flash-back sequence in “Genesis of Good, Genesis of Evil.” Justified in the fact that it was her sister, FireHawk, who was being put on trial for her crimes! Subverted, in the fact that FireHawk was actually EVIL and was actually GUILTY of committing all the crimes she was put on trial for! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/UncertainDoom: During Woolbur Fleecele's flash-back sequence in “Genesis of Good, Genesis of Evil,” neither Woolbur Fleeceley, any of his fellow S.P.D. Power Rangers (or any of his friends WATCHING the flash-back unfold, “It Makes Sense in Context”), ever got to SEE whether or not Ramone Fleeceley ever actually WAS crushed to death by the Trash Compactor that Ramone Fleeceley was TRAPPED in, although Woolbur has assumed that Ramone probably didn't! It remains to be seen for sure! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ThrowingDownTheGauntlet: Done by Queen Hedrian during both parts of the two-part “Orange Crush”. She even CALLED it by name, commanding Mirror to “Release the GAUNTLET!!!!” And Mirror released TWENTY Hedrian monsters that the Power Rangers had to ALL completely fight and destroy, along with General Shogun, in order to win the day! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ComeWithMeIfYouWantToLive: Actually mentioned by NAME, by Captain Retro, when he first introduced himself to the Power Rangers in “Land of Confusion: Part One!” Justified by the fact that the Power Rangers WERE facing their evil Dark Dimension DOUBLES, along with an even MORE Evil Dark Dimension Mirror, and they were STILL exhausted from their warm-up battle against the Dark Dimension Radiguet! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/EscapeFromTheCrazyPlace: Justified in “The Laughter of the Thirsting Gods: Part One.” The Power Rangers managed to CONVINCE each of the Four Main Chaos Gods to send their legions against Emperor Diabolica's forces, but they STILL had to try to find a way OUT of the Chaos Realm, and the Chaos Gods couldn't be counted on to JUST warp them back home! So in the realm of T'zeentch, they had to use the “Shaggy Search Technique” in order to find the right way home! Eventually, they do, and manage to get back to Core Earth, just in time for the great battle against Emperor Diabolica! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TimeTravelEscape: Justified in the “Power Rangers” universe several times. Whenever the main Power Rangers of the time are sent to a time where they don't belong (with the exception of the “Power Rangers Time Force” who HAD to go back into what was the PAST from THEIR perspective), the Power Rangers would always have to find a WAY to get back to their own time! Examples include, but not necessarily limited to; “Rangers Back In Time Parts I & II”; “Return of the Green Ranger Parts I-III”; “Wild West Rangers Parts I & II”; the entirety of the “Mighty Morphing Alien Rangers” mini-arc; “A Brief Mystery of Time”; “When Time Freezes Over”; “History”; “Wormhole”; and even “Hot-Blooded” in “Power Rangers Multiverse Force” ITSELF!!!! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AttackHello: While most Monsters of the Day generally make their debut in this fashion; great examples include, but are not necessarily limited to the following examples! When Vipera made her proper introduction to Ebony in “Virtual Insanity”, by fighting her and her fellow Rangers; General Crush in “Orange Crush: Part One”; the Dark Dimension Radiguet, the Dark Dimension Rangers, and the Dark Dimension Mirror, in the two-part “Land of Confusion”; and Psygorn during Woolbur Fleeceley's flash-back sequence in “Genesis of Good, Genesis of Evil”. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BackstabBackfire: Has happened on quite a few occasions in “Power Rangers Multiverse Force”. Monster of the Day Cursed Kringle, during “The Fight Before Christmas,” managed to temporarily trap “Big Bad” Emperor Diabolica in a Snow Globe, only to be SEVERELY punished by getting KILLED by Emperor Diabolica ONCE Drako finally managed to FREE Emperor Drako! Happened to Demon King Banriki in “Weekend at Ebony's”, when he ATTEMPTED to pull a “Starscream” on Queen Hedrian, only to be THWARTED by Amazoness, and Queen Hedrian REDUCED Banriki into little more than a Hedrian Monster slave, who would do HER bidding! Jaedite didn't even get THAT far in “Cosmic Guardians: Part One”, as Ahminnan TOLD Queen Beryl about Jaedite's PLANNED betrayal on Queen Beryl's life, and Queen Beryl gave Jaedite a QUICK and MERCILESS death! Also implied to have happened to Emperess Jooza, during the flash-back sequence of 1999. She attempted to STRIP Radiguet of his powers, leaving him as little more than a mere human mortal on Earth (even though she said that it was done in the name of mercy)! “It Didn't Stick”, however; and Radiguet invoked “Disproportionate Retribution” on the life of Emperess Jooza, by mercilessly BEATING her, than KILLING her! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BattleChant: Right before General Crush goes into battle in “Orange Crush: Part One”, he would always chant: “Kill, maim, burn! Blood for the Blood God! Skulls for the Skull Throne!”, over and over! This also applies to all of the Chaos Demons living in the Chaos Realm! In fact, the Power Rangers consider it to be the “Most Annoying Sound!” Before the Power Rangers themselves, go into battle, they usually shout: “It's Morphing Time!” http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BattleDiscretionShot: Occasionally happens, especially during season one of “Power Rangers Multiverse Force” which was less serious and less dark than season two. Probably the best example occurs during “Land of Confusion: Part Two”. When Dark Mirror Radiguet is reduced to little more than a head with a torso and one arm, he is “Driven to Suicide” due to the influence of the Mirror versions of the Four Main Chaos Gods INSIDE of him! And instead of Dark Mirror Radiguet's BRUTAL attack on himself being seen ON-SCREEN; the camera INSTEAD pans to the Rangers REACTIONS of seeing a SHADOW of Dark Mirror Radiguet using his ONE remaining arm to GRAB into his own head, and pull out his OWN brain!!!! Although we DO see Dark Mirror Radiguet holding his OWN brain, in his own hand, we don't actually SEE the hole in his head! It only lasts for a few seconds though, as Dark Mirror Radiguet EXPLODES shortly there after! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BehemothBattle: Most fights against monsters of the day, usually end up with the Power Rangers utilizing their Megazord, and using it against a giant-sized version of whatever monster is CURRENTLY threatening Coastal Falls, on any given occasion! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ChaseFight: This has happened on a few occasions, during “Power Rangers Multiverse Force”. In “Get Your Motor Running” against Monster of the Day, Road Hog. During “The Red Flaw” mini-arc against Vipera and some illusion Monsters, as well as against a “Brainwashed and Crazy” Naruto! And against Vipera AGAIN in “Orange Crush: Part One!” http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ElementalPunch: Naruto's “Fire Fox Punch” attack against Dark Mirror Radiguet in “Land of Confusion: Part One” was INTENDED to be this! However, not only did the attack end up NOT working; it also resulted in a moment, where Naruto felt like he “Broke His Arm While Trying to Punch Cthulu!” / I think that's enough Tropes for today. After I've finished my NEXT episode, I'll think up of some more tropes, than! Enough said, true believers!
  21. I've been wanting to do this ever since I wrote the last new episode of “Power Rangers Multiverse Force”, but now, I finally have an opportunity to present some new trope examples that have been used within this series. I hope you enjoy looking at them, as much as I did coming up with them. Enjoy! (Warning: WALLS of TEXT Ahead!) / http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/LampshadeHanging: Used twice in the episode “Baby, Be Mine.” While Lettuce and Pinkie singing “Jolly Holiday” together wasn't so unusual, having six characters they were acquainted with suddenly JOINING them in the song, and singing on cue AND on key WAS unusual! Lettuce actually NOTED the weirdness of the activity, while Pinkie chalked it up to a harmless prank done by the Chaos God T'zeen'tch. Not too much later in the same episode, Pinkie saw a blue egg in a hollow tree, but couldn't reach it on her own. Lettuce had to get on her back in order to reach it, but it looked like Lettuce was RIDING Pinkie Pie! And even though she IS a pony, she's never, EVER actually HAD to carry someone on her back before, and both Lettuce AND Pinkie felt that the whole thing was pretty awkward. Pinkie even noting that the over-used writing technique of a group of characters finding an abandoned baby somewhere and having to take care of it until it's real mother or father comes back for it, WAS an over-used plot technique, but that they HAD to get around to doing it SOONER or later! Also counts as “Breaking the Fourth Wall.” http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ChaoticNeutral & http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ChaoticGood: Depending on what MOOD she is in, and depending on where a certain character falls on a character alignment chart, Kras'hir can be either one of these. Kras'hir is genuinely Chaotic Good when she's with Usagi. But whenever she's “Just Doing Her Job” as a Chaos Demon, she can DEFINITELY be seen as Chaotic Neutral to ANY crook, hoodlum, or two-bit villain (and by extension, anyone who SEES her ATTACKING them) who HAPPENS to be committing evil deeds! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/LawfulGood: Most of the time, the Power Rangers tend to fall under this trope. They protect the people of Core Earth (and occasionally, other dimensions and time periods across the Multiverse), and they always make sure not to break the law. As of season two, however, some of the Power Rangers are starting to blur into more “Gray and Gray Morality,” as Ebony and Toby have started a Drug-fueled relationship that is Questionable at BEST, and arguably Depraved at WORST; while Usagi's pact with Khorne has started her down the path into becoming a “Blood Knight Templar.” Although she's still managed to keep her sanity intact, only time will tell if Usagi can KEEP her sanity when she has to CONSTANTLY kill, even if it IS evil people, EVERY SINGLE DAY! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/LawfulNeutral: Due to their nature as being mentors, Zordon, Omnus, and Alpha Eight are officially and TECHNICALLY this trope! They do NOT actively participate in the fighting, but they will lend their advice and any technological aid that the Power Rangers may need in order to combat evil. However, it HAS been revealed that at least OMNUS has NOT always BEEN this character trait, and MAY have once been a “Blood Knight Templar” himself! While the murky parts of his past are unclear as of this point, it is clear that he has become “The Atoner,” and wishes to make up for his past misdeeds. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/NeverLiveItDown: Both Ebony and former “Power Ranger Turbo” member Justin seem to have fallen afoul and his trope. Ebony's mistake was that she had a fling with Draco Malfoy, but she LIED about being a squeaky clean Virgin in an attempt to impress BlackHawk! Needless to say, when BlackHawk found OUT about the lie, he was LESS than happy about it, to put it moderately! And practically EVERYBODY in universe dislikes Justin for being “The Scrappy” of the “Power Rangers Turbo” team, and think that Zordon made a MISTAKE in choosing him, and that Justin was the BIGGEST reason as to WHY Divatox was ABLE to prevail over the “Power Rangers Turbo” team in the FIRST place! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: More like, “Rescued From the So Okay, it's Average Heap”, but it still counts. While Rocky from the days of “Mighty Morphing Power Rangers” seasons two and three, and “Power Rangers Zeo” wasn't a BAD Ranger by ANY stretch of the imagination, he wasn't what anyone would REALLY call special! Starting in “Baby, Be Mine” he was reintroduced into the “Power Rangers” universe as being Billy's special partner, as Billy called him Handsome, and ABLE to make Billy laugh! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TakeThatScrappy: How practically everyone IN universe, views Justin from the “Power Rangers Turbo” team! Everyone tends to take any and ALL available opportunities to make FUN of Justin for just HOW mind-numbingly USELESS he was as a Power Ranger! Seeing as how even his fellow BLUE Rangers don't CARE for him, his situation is NOT likely to improve any time soon, IF it ever DOES! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TrueNeutral: Seeing as how minor character Sally Anne is only three, and thusly too YOUNG to REALLY grasp the concept of Good and Evil, she can EASILY fit this description! Could also be used to describe Notacon's baby child, as all it did in “Baby, Be Mine”, was eat and make 'stinkies' in his diaper, in a case of “Reality Ensues.” http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/UnderusedGameMechanic: Although Time Travel has been used in the past, a couple of times by the Mighty Morphing Power Rangers, the Blue Sentaurion in “Power Rangers Turbo,” the ENTIRE plot point of “Power Rangers Time Force”, both the Power Rangers Dino Thunder and the Power Rangers S.P.D. Teams in “Power Rangers S.P.D.,” two of the “Power Rangers Multiverse Force” Rangers in “Hot-Blooded”, Gluto and some Cyclobots in “Baby, Be Mine” (only to be destroyed by current Phantom Ranger StarHawk as “One Scene Wonders” for all their trouble), and seven Legendary Rangers in various episodes; Time Travel is STILL not used all that often in “Power Rangers” canon. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: Because this series has the “Power Rangers” name attached to it, there might be some people who might mistakenly think that the series is ACTUALLY made for kids, in SPITE of it's PG-13 rating! While there HAVE been some episodes that have been written BELOW the PG-13 rating (at arguably, a G rating or a PG rating), due to various swear words, several violent actions, drug usage, and questionable behavior of some rather NAUGHTY nature that has happened over the episodes, it should be clear by now that this series is NOT for young kids! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/GovernmentAgencyOfFiction: While the Federation of Core Earth is TECHNICALLY a Fictional Government Agency, it IS still described in a realistic way. There is a President who is ELECTED, and that president has an army to serve Core Earth, and a group of Secret Service agents to carry out tasks that the public is NOT to know about! What makes it chilling, is that it is revealed in “Cosmic Guardians: Part II”, that a Chaos Demon is actually POSING as the current Core Earth President! Even WORSE, BlackHawk's Mother, Mrs. Little, is currently DATING the President, in an attempt to get herself a MAN who is a WINNER! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HassleFreeHotwire : Done by Coop in “Baby, Be Mine.” He was invisible, and in order to track down Lettuce and Pinkie and find out what they were up to, he needed to get to Undyne's apartment. Knowing that he would never be able to get there on foot in time, he simply used the magic spell “Piertotum Locomotor” in order to magically start up BlackHawk's Vespa, so it would GET him to Undyne's Apartment in time for Coop to find out what was going on. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/JustAKid : Subverted and Averted by Coop, who HAPPENS to be BlackHawk's younger brother! Justified in the fact that Coop (who is a CANON character in “Yin Yang Yo”), has already BEEN revealed to be smart AND a competent fighter, who has helped Yin, Yang, and Master Yo take down the Night Master, and it is revealed in “Baby, Be Mine,” that by working together, BlackHawk and Coop also managed to take out the villain named Ferocitus in a fight that has been mentioned, but not yet seen! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ProductPlacement: Happens from time to time in the “Power Rangers” universe. Sometimes, certain songs will play during key moments of an episode that promote a specific singer or musical group. Other times, certain products like video games or restaurants will be mentioned, like “Mario Kart 64” or “Chili's Restaurant”. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/GenreSavvy: Initially, only Ebony and BlackHawk were actively this. Ebony because she used the knowledge of various movies and TV shows she had already seen in order to make her aware of what would probably happen next in any given situation. And BlackHawk already had active fighting experience as a Woo Foo Warrior. As of season two, ALL of the main Power Rangers are NOW exceptionally much more Genre Savvy than they were in season one; with even Pinkie Pie stating that while she's STILL going to be herself, she's going to be a lot more WISER about it, since the Power Rangers have to deal with things like the Chaos Gods! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/RankUp: Due to Usagi's ascension into becoming Sailor Moon and the White Cosmic Ranger in between the events of “The Laughter of the Thirsting Gods: Part One” and “Cosmic Guardians: Part II”, she got a Rank Up to becoming the OFFICIAL team leader of the Power Rangers; a prospect which excited BlackHawk, because he NOW has someone who he can aspire to be as STRONG as; a prospect that intrigued Lettuce and Toby to VIE to become Usagi's second-in-command; and a prospect that left Naruto a bit cold, as HE was no longer the official team leader of the Power Rangers. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Adorkable: BlackHawk can get this way around D.O.G., sometimes; and especially around girls he finds attractive! Most notably, Vipera in her disguised Viola human form in “Life is a Beach”, and StarHawk in “Baby, Be Mine!” Arguably, D.O.G.'s whole persona could be described as this, to his natural dog nature, and his ability to be funny whenever he talks! Alphys is neurotically Adorkable by nature, and Coop is normally Adorkable, but Coop DOES have a Cool Side to him; which he hasn't HAD to reveal...YET! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/RareGuns: The Thunderslingers, used by the Mighty Morphing Power Rangers in the CANON episode of “Gung Ho,” and later much more FREQUENTLY by the Power Rangers Multiverse Force, definitely fits this trope! What makes it even better, is they're not just rare, they are ALSO powerful! They were used to power up the Velociraptor Multi-Ultrazord in order to power up it's FINISHING Attack! The Phantom Ranger's Delta Blaster can also qualify as this, as it was able to take out “Power Rangers Time Force” villain Gluto, in just FOUR shots! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/RealityEnsues: This started happening to the Power Rangers, and to the series as a whole starting with season two. While the cool action-adventure fantasy plots still play a big part in the series, more realistic plot elements are starting to creep in. For instance, a good amount of nudity is no longer in shadow or conveniently censored in anyway, and babies realistically make 'stinkies' in their diapers...a LOT!!!! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Initially, the way to show-case BlackHawk's nudity WITHOUT actually showing his nudity, was to simply have some sort of object or something conveniently BLOCK the nudity from the view of the viewers. Also, whenever Pinkie wants to talk about SOMEBODY doing something that is of “Fourth Base” material, she ALWAYS refers it to as “Doing the NASTY” so she doesn't have to ACTUALLY say what she is implying! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/GlowingEyes: The eyes of the Spinosaurus Zord ALWAYS glows! When it was untamed or temporarily under Vipera's control, it's eyes glowed RED to indicate that its powers were NOT being used for the right purposes! But when BlackHawk gained control of the Spinosaurus, it's eyes glowed BLUE, to indicate that it's powers were NOW being used for the right purposes! Additionally, Sans' eyes ALWAYS glow for some reason! (If you're familiar with “Undertale,” you'll KNOW the full ramifications for TESTING Sans' faith in goodness if you're not CAREFUL and you DON'T show MERCY!) http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AlternateUniverse: The whole purpose of the Dark Mirror Dimension in the two-part “Land of Confusion”, was to give the Power Rangers a glimpse as to what could/might/WOULD happen to THEIR universe if Greater Scope Villain Radiguet EVER succeeded in absorbing the power of the Four Main Chaos Gods! He would be able to turn Core Earth into a BARREN Wasteland, and would subsequently BRAINWASH all of the GOOD characters on Core Earth into doing ALL of his EVIL BIDDING! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/GoodIsNotNice: If Naruto threatening to RIP Drako's SPINE out in “Orange Crush: Part One” doesn't qualify for this trope, NOTHING does! Also, Kras'hir's whole personality in general. While she IS technically on the side of the Power Rangers, you definitely do NOT want to get on her bad side by committing any heinous, immoral, or illegal acts, or you MIGHT not LIVE to REGRET it! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/GreyAndGrayMorality: The four main Chaos Gods, and Kras'hir, could be said to fall under this trope. While they clearly can NOT be defined as Good, they can't just be written off as evil, either! As they WERE willing to lend their armies to the Power Rangers for the battle against Emperor Diabolica's army in “The Laughter of the Thirsting Gods: Part Two.” http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Hammerspace: Mentioned in universe in “Baby, Be Mine”, as for the proper explanation as to how Undyne's apartment is able to be BIGGER on the Inside, than from what it looks like on the Outside! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/RichPeople: Lettuce and his family, as well as BlackHawk and his mother and younger brother, both fall under this trope. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TheRival: Initially, BlackHawk and Naruto viewed each other as this; with both training as hard as they could in an attempt to unmistakably be considered more powerful than the other! However, with Naruto now demoted to second-in-command in season two, and BlackHawk now interested in becoming as powerful as Usagi/Sailor Moon, the rivalry between BlackHawk and Naruto now seems to have ended. tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/NeverMyFault: This was Vipera's WHOLE attitude towards Emperor Diabolica and her fellow evil-doers whenever things went wrong! While most of the time, it really ISN'T Vipera's fault that things went wrong, it STILL doesn't make her fellow evil-doers HAPPY to have to hear her SAY that! She even SAID the trope out-loud in “Orange Crush: Part One;” when Drako asked WHY Vipera was blaming HIM for the out-of-control behavior of General Crush, when Drako didn't even CREATE him?! And Vipera said, “Because it's NEVER MY Fault!” Now it seems to be the trope for Queen Beryl's three loyal sorcerer's, as they can't seem to agree on just WHO is to blame for a Youma FAILING to destroy the Power Rangers, with Doctor Maniac going so far as to serve them a “BIG SHUT UP!!!!” / That's my list of trope ideas for today! Enough said, true believers!
  22. And, because I want to get this out of my system, here are some tropes relating to Dr. Maniac's Orkoid assistants, Bzrk and Grzrg. Author Appeal: Orks are my favorite characters from Warhammer 40K, and are the main reason why Bzrk and Grzrg exist as characters. Blue and Orange Morality: Like all Orks, Bzrk and Grzrg have no sense of "good" or "evil". They follow Dr. Maniac and by extension Queen Beryl because they are their bosses, and nothing more. Blood Knight: Orks are literally genetically engineered for fighting; they need it like food and water, otherwise they'll suffer a form of emaciation/starvation. Bzrk and Grzrg are no exception. Dumb Muscle: Tying in with the above, both of these guys are simple-minded, and don't know much aside from fighting and tinkering with technology. Clap Your Hands if You Believe: Bzrk and Grzrg, like all Orks, have minor reality-warping powers due to naturally possessing a field of psychic energy around themselves. Therefore, if they believe something should work a certain way, it will. Insane Troll Logic: Overlapping with the above trope, Orks have...a very bizarre train of thought. Cyborg: Bzrk and Grzrg are this due to being Mekboys. Gadgeteer Genius: The "genius" part is dubious, due to Orkoid technology defying all common sense and logic in how it works. Being Mekboys, however, the duo are definitely gadgeteers. Mad Scientist/For Science!: Why they follow Dr. Maniac in the first place, and due to their downright weird morality, have no qualms about how unethical his experiments are. Scavenged Punk: Bzrk and Grzrg's inventions are cobbled together from whatever they can find, as it is with all Ork technology. Funetik Aksent: Combined with Xtreme Kool Letterz, Bzrk and Grzrg speak Orkoid, a language resembling thick Cockney English. Genius Bruiser: Again, "genius" isn't the right word to describe this duo. "Bruiser", on the other hand... Insistent Terminology: Rather then refer to Queen Beryl by more appropriate titles, Bzrk and Grzrg only refer to her as "Boss Lady". Plucky Comic Relief: ...These two are meant to be comic foils to Dr. Maniac, for a given definition of "plucky". Or "comic relief", for that matter.
  23. Here are a few more tropes for PR: MVF. Badass Princess: Future Usagi, as shown in Cosmic Guardians: Part II. Hell, her future title is Regina, Latin for "princess". A God Am I: Radiguet's entire motivation, as he seeks to absorb the Chaos Gods in order to become the "God of Judgement". This is also is inherently deconstructed in the next trope... Too Dumb to Live: What Radiguet's actions show him to be. He wants to absorb the freaking CHAOS GODS, some of the most powerful beings in the series' canon. As shown in Usagi's future vision, Horus Lupercal ends up beating him, as Radiguet (stupidly) attempts to revive him in an attempt to further his goals. Off With His Head!: What becomes of Radiguet in the future; Horus ends up taking his head as a trophy. Morality Pet: Usagi and Omnus are this to Kras'hir and Hedrian respectively. Really 700 Years Old: Although Omnus appears to be in his 20s, he is of an unknown age due to this, having been a young adult when the Imperium was founded on what would become Core Earth 50,000+ years before the series began; this also applies to Hedrian. And I Must Scream: The Emperor of Mankind. Dear GOD, the Emperor of Mankind. Having been mortally wounded during the Horus Heresy, watched as his Imperium collapse into a techno-barbaric theocracy that worshiped him (an antithesis to his ideals of a secular, enlightened human-based empire), and then lived through the total collapse of the society he founded and a new one arise in its place thousands of years later, all the while having long-since rotted away into an immobile skeleton bound to an intricate life support system that is tied to the Warp and could overrun the planet with eldritch creatures if it is ever shut off, he qualifies for this trope. Although this trope is averted in the future seen in Cosmic Guardians: Part II, where he is alive and well. State Sec combined with Government Conspiracy: Delta Green, an organization created by the Federation to accomplish two major goals: to keep Chaos under wraps and eliminated, as well as hide the existence of the Emperor of Mankind still being alive (well, as alive as one can be in a state like his). Erudite Stoner: What Toby becomes as a result of Ebony introducing him to pot in Cosmic Guardians: Part II. Low Culture, High Tech: Well, more like "Modern Culture, High Tech", but it still counts. Core Earth has highly advanced technology, though has a culture roughly analogous to the 1990s-2010s. Schizo Tech: Core Earth's technological level can be this at times, with bicycles existing alongside hovercraft, for example. End of an Age: What the Federation is heading towards, as shown in Cosmic Guardians: Part II. Back From the Dead: Zordon is this as a result of Zedd and Rita reviving him, though at the cost of their youth. It is shown in Cosmic Guardians: Part II that the Emperor of Mankind is this, possibly even through the same means as Zordon. Messianic Archetype: Usagi is this due to being born partly from the Emperor's Light. Appropriately enough, the Emperor himself is also this because Jesus was one of his many aliases. A God I Am Not: What the Emperor considered himself, which at its core led to the Horus Heresy. As seen in Cosmic Guardians: Part II, he still considers himself this, though has allowed those in the future Neo-Imperium to believe in him, likely to avert a second Heresy. Crystal Spires and Togas: What the Neo-Imperium shown in Cosmic Guardians: Part II is implied to be, given that the Emperor intends to avert the same mistakes that plagued the first Imperium.
  24. It's been a while, but I've decided to take a look and see if there were any more trope examples, either new or previously weren't referenced, that I have not gotten around to mentioning yet! Here is what I managed to find! I hope you enjoy reading them, as much as I did writing them! (Warning: Walls of TEXT Ahead!) / http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AbandonShipping : Happened canonically, to Ebony and BlackHawk. Although they WERE a couple for a time, from “Life is a Beach” to “The Laughter of Thirsting Gods: Part II;” when BlackHawk found out the TRUTH about Ebony's TRUE sexual nature, it caused him to storm out on her! In “Cosmic Guardians: Part Two”, the romantic relationship officially disintegrated into nothingness; due to Ebony gaining her NEW Morphing Powers through Slaneesh (in a “Deal With the Devil”), she was only able to GET those powers, by PROMISING to be as promiscuously active as POSSIBLE, and she wound up STARTING it off, by getting involved in a relationship with TOBY, who, IRONICALLY, she PREVIOUSLY turned down in “Life is a Beach” for not being STRONG enough! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AcceptableLifestyleTargets : Happened canonically, to Billy in the “Power Rangers” universe. Being that he was GAY, and originally a Power Ranger in the 1990's, it used to be perfectly FINE for Tommy to CALL Billy GAY as an insult! Naturally, Billy did NOT see it THAT way, even WANTING Zordon and Alpha V to FAKE his disappearance so that Billy wouldn't have to ENDURE Tommy's TAUNTING anymore! Word of God, however, says that Billy's relationship status and his lifestyle acceptance will “Get Better.” http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AcceptableReligiousTargets : Canonically, the Necrons, introduced in “Cosmic Gaurdains: Part II” are these. Justified in the fact that they worship the FALSE Emperor, strung together a FAR Flung Galactic Empire across VAST galaxies, waged genocidal war against OTHER species (likely due to “Fantastic Racism”), and even after the species going into sleep for about 60 million years (“It Makes Sense in Context”); upon waking up, the first thing the species did was to RESUME what they had done PRIOR to going into hibernation, and continue waging their war against other species, STARTING with Human Kind itself! Cue the “Oh, Crap!” reaction from Omnus and the Power Rangers! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ChaoticEvil : Canonically, Greater Scope Villain Radiguet is this! Creating evil wherever he goes, just to cause Chaos, and because, “It Amuses Him.” The Four Main Chaos Gods themselves, could be argued to be various shades of this trope, depending on their particular mood, and whoever happens to be meeting with them at any particular moment. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/FamilyUnfriendlyAesop : One was introduced in “Cosmic Guardians: Part Two.” The Power Rangers had to find out the hard way, that not EVERYBODY will always end up appreciating what the Power Rangers DO, as heroes! And sometimes, hard choices have to be made; as to what would be best for society and humanity as a whole. Also, Usagi found out the sad truth that sometimes, Parents (such as her mom), will NOT always accept your life style choices, even if it's what YOU want, and even if it's not HURTING anybody else! Usagi's Mom “Got Better” though, and eventually came around to accepting Usagi's relationship with Kras'hir/Krystal. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/InferredHolocaust : Canonically, the Necron are said to have caused MANY of these across a vast number of GALAXIES, to many different species on many different planets! Even though the Necron had to go into slumber for 60 million years for “Reasons,” they now have their sights set on human kind itself, on Core Earth! Thankfully, Usagi and five of the other Rangers, managed to take a level in Awesome, and managed to defeat the FIRST of Queen Beryl's Youma monsters, with relative ease! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/IronWoobie : Canonically, Queen Hedrian can now be seen as this! Despite having her butt constantly SERVED to her on a Silver Platter by the Power Rangers, who constantly DESTROYED her loyal monsters and servants, Queen Hedrian never seemed to be the least bit FAZED or FETTERED, by the constant setbacks and humiliations she had to suffer! Ironically, as of “Cosmic Guardians: Part Two”, she is now somewhat of an “Aloof Ally” to the Power Rangers, helping them for reasons that are NOT entirely known to the Power Rangers as of yet, but all they know is that Queen Hedrian is doing it because she cares for Omnus. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/NeutralEvil : Canonically, Doctor Maniac is this. He pursues his own intellectual, selfish pursuits, all “For the Science!” He really doesn't care if his allies are in it for Revenge, “For the Evulz”, or for World Domination! As long as Doctor Maniac is allowed to conduct his “Experiments” on living Bio Beasts, and able to modify himself to become more MACHINE than human (losing his very SOUL in the process), Doctor Maniac will be perfectly FINE with going along with whatever plan Queen Beryl has in mind! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TenMinuteRetirement : More like 24 day retirement, but it counts. Justified, because in between “The Laughter of Thirsting Gods: Part II”, and the “Cosmic Guardians” two-part season two premiere, six of the Power Rangers lost their dino-based Ranger Powers, and had to wait 24 days before new ones could be acquired for them. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AllYourBaseAreBelongToUs : Happened to BOTH the Command Center, AND Coastal Falls during the “Cosmic Guardians” two-part season two premiere. Although Queen Beryl's forces did NOT succeed in conquering EITHER, they DID temporarily make it DIFFICULT and impractical for the Power Rangers to actually MORPH and try to deal with the situation, due to circumstances that were totally BEYOND the ability of the Power Rangers to control! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BombDisposal : It was chillingly revealed in “Cosmic Guardians: Part Two;” that the mechanical Necrons are ACTUALLY walking TIME Bombs! To prevent them from destroying/wrecking parts of Coastal Falls, Usagi and Kras'hir had to SCRAMBLE in order to LURE the Necrons OUT of the city in time, and then destroy them where they could do no significant damage to any property or innocent life! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/CarnivalOfKillers : Due to Queen Beryl's previously established, antagonist relationship with Usagi/Sailor Moon, her loyal servants, Youma, and hired help, can now be said to be canonically THIS against Usagi/Sailor Moon, as she is the daughter of the True Emperor, and she represents the Coming Light that will VANQUISH all Youma, and Daemon Kind! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/CavalryBetrayal : When Usagi and Kras'hir were rescued by the Core Earth Federation in “Cosmic Guardians: Part Two”, they ended up temporarily CAPTURED by ORDERS of the President! As it turns out, the situation was totally JUSTIFIED, as one of Queen Beryl's goons REVEALED himself to the AUDIENCE, as POSING as the President, in an attempt to get Usagi and Kras'hir OUT of the picture, in attempting to deal with them as a threat! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/DiagnosisFromDrBadass : Whenever Dr. Maniac talks to someone else, he ALWAYS makes it a point, to talk about in GRAPHIC detail, either how much he IS hurting someone, how MUCH he wants to hurt someone, how MUCH he HAS hurt someone, OR how much he is GOING to hurt someone! He even talked about the DEATH of his own son, without so much as a single note of sorrow or pity! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/DyeOrDie : In order to blend into regular Core Earth society starting with “Cosmic Guardians: Part One”, Kras'hir has to use a special ring to disguise herself as a normal human being, so that no one will suspect that she's actually a Demon from the Chaos Realm, and so she can have a more 'normal' relationship with Usagi! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ExpositionDiagram : When the Necrons first introduced themselves to Queen Beryl in “Cosmic Guardians: Part Two,” they made it a point to talk about in GREAT length, how they came to be, the origins of their now mechanical appearance, what they want, what they expect from Queen Beryl, and what they expect to get in RETURN from aiding Queen Beryl, in her quest to DESTROY Usagi/Sailor Moon, as well as revive Queen Metalia! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/FightMagnet : Usagi and Kras'hir can now be said to be canonically this, as of “Cosmic Guardians: Part One,” due to Queen Beryl (and by extension, her loyal servants, Youma, and hired help), all wanting to ATTACK the two of them, and KILL them! Or at the VERY least, generate ENOUGH energy to REVIVE Queen Metalia, so she can KILL the two of them (and by extension, the Power Rangers), as SOON as she is revived! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/GenocideDilemma: As of “Cosmic Guardians: Part Two”, the Power Rangers are now faced with THIS unpleasant situation! The Necrons want to ANNIHILATE human kind, and they are WILLING to do ANYTHING to do so! Justified in the fact that the Necrons worship the False Emperor, and they are depicted to be MORALLY wrong, when compared with the general population living on Core Earth! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HeroicBSOD : Toby and Usagi BOTH suffered this in “Cosmic Guardians: Part Two.” Toby suffered it due to him now dating Ebony, and the effect it was starting to have on his health and his grades; with Toby loudly arguing with his mother, only to suffer a “Heel Realization”, when he finds out that his younger brother has CANCER; and the SAME type of Cancer that KILLED his Father! Usagi suffered it when her parents found out about her relationship status with Kras'hir/Krystal. While her Human Father was very understanding of the situation, her mother was notably LESS so, causing Usagi to be emotionally drained and despaired! Usagi's mother eventually came around, even going so far as to apologize to Usagi when she found out all the harrowing details, of what brought Usagi and Kras'hir together! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HeroicSafeMode : Due to Queen Beryl coming back into the life of Usagi/Sailor Moon, and subsequently, her having to make a deal with Khorne in order to strengthen her Ranger Powers, Usagi/Sailor Moon can now said to be canonically this FULL time as of “Cosmic Guardians: Part Two”! She now has a NEED to fight ALL the time, in order to satisfy the blood lust cravings that Khorne FORCED onto her! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TorchesAndPitchforks : In “Cosmic Guardians: Part Two,” a bunch of people got together torches and pitchforks to ransack and BURN effigies of the Power Rangers, because they were being convinced that a group of teenagers were doing a job that SHOULD be done by highly-trained, highly-professional military service soldiers! Justified, in that most of them were being tricked and deceived by Demons POSING as normal human citizens! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ViolenceIsTheOnlyOption : For the Power Rangers, as of “Cosmic Guardians: Part Two,” the only viable solution to dealing with the Necrons, the Youma, Queen Beryl, and ALL her hired help, is to resolve it by a TON of BUTT-KICKING ACTION!!!! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/PossibleWar : In “Cosmic Guardians: Part Two”, Usagi/Sailor Moon, was treated to the prophetic possibility, that a NEW war involving human kind and the Daemons will happen within twenty years time, and that by that time, ONE of her friends will be DEAD!!!! Needless to say, Usagi decided to “Defy Fate”, and work HARD with her fellow Power Rangers, to ensure that either the prophecy DOESN'T come to pass; or if it does, it won't be as bad as the prophecy was making it out to be! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/PowerAtAPrice : In “Cosmic Guardians: Part Two”, six of the Power Rangers were able to get their new Ranger Powers and weapons, with each of them making a deal with one of the four main Chaos Gods. Naruto and Usagi went with Khorne, Toby and Lettuce went with T'zeen'tch, Ebony went with Slaneesh, and Pinkie went with Nurgle. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/FunnyAneurysmMoment : Has happened on at LEAST two separate occasions to the Power Rangers. A milder version occurred in “Orange Crush: Part One,” when BlackHawk began his day by playing Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' “She's a Woman in Love (It's Not Me”). This counts, because he had JUST started a romantic relationship with Ebony in “Life is a Beach”, only to discover in “The Laughter of Thirsting Gods: Part Two,” that she WASN'T as faithful and virtuous as she CLAIMED to be! Also counts as “Fridge Brilliance”, as the SONG was actually FORESHADOWING what Ebony's and BlackHawk's relationship with each other would ultimately AMOUNT to! In “Laughter of the Thirsting Gods: Part One,” when Kras'hir first met Usagi, Kras'hir almost INSTANTLY found herself ATTRACTED to Usagi! But when Kras'hir found out that Usagi was already IN a relationship with Mamoru, Kras'hir secretly WISHED that Mamoru was DEAD! Later, in the SAME episode, Slaneesh treated BOTH Usagi and Kras'hir to the sight of Mamoru's decapitated HEAD! It turned out to be a trick, though. As it was revealed in “Cosmic Guardians: Part Two,” it turned out that Mamoru was alive and well. Mamoru also decided: “I Want My Beloved to Be Happy,” so he graciously decided to step out of the way, and allowed Usagi and Kras'hir to have their relationship together. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/PsychicPowers : Zordon, Omnus, and Captain Retro all have these powers to various extents. Most notably, the power of foresight, and the ability to see different possible futures! Zordon is also capable of producing psychic barriers, and can contain the powers of Chaos within the Warp, albeit, only for a limited amount of time. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/PsychologicalCombat : Arguably, the Necron and the Youma aren't just waging PHYSICAL combat against Usagi, they're also trying to BREAK her mentally, by torturing her with perfectly POSSIBLE and PLAUSIBLE thoughts of failure, death, and even the possibility that SHE was fighting for a cause that WASN'T worth fighting for! Thankfully, Usagi did a “No Sell” in “Cosmic Guardians: Part Two;” said a BIG “Shut Up, Hannibal!” And gave the evil Necron and Youma a WELL-DESERVED BUTT-KICKING!!!! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AdaptationDeviation : Has happened to a degree, to characters that already canonically exist in the “Power Rangers” universe, the “Super Sentai” universe, or any other various universe that the characters originally come from! For instance, in “Denziman”, where both D.O.G., and Queen Hedrian originally come from; D.O.G. SACRIFICED himself to provide the Power Rangers with the ultimate weapon to bring down the bad guys, while Queen Hedrian, wound up frozen in the Arctic, until being thawed out and revived as a cyborg in “Sun Vulcan.” Word of God is, that D.O.G., will be SPARED by the Adaptation, and Queen Hedrian STILL remains FULLY organic...at least, for NOW! Also, while Billy's sexual orientation was NEVER explicitly stated in “Power Rangers” (although it was SHOWN that he went out with several girls), he is revealed to be GAY within THIS series, and probably only went OUT with the girls he went out with, in an attempt to get Tommy to STOP making insulting jokes about him being GAY! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/GayAndLesbianFiction : Thanks to the now-established relationships between Usagi and Kras'hir, as well as Alphys and Undyne, this series can NOW be said to contain ELEMENTS of this type of story-writing! / I think that's enough Tropes for now! I'll probably be able to come up with a few more, once I write the NEXT exciting episode of “Power Rangers Multiverse Force!” Enough said, true believers!
  25. Because I really, really, REALLY have nothing better to do with my free time, than to list the many different types of writing techniques that have been used in “Power Rangers Multiverse Force;” I have decided to look, and have found a few more for you to enjoy and learn from! I hope you enjoy reading them, as much as I did finding and writing them! / http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ActionFilmQuietDramaScene : Usually happens whenever there's a break in the usually action-oriented series. Instead of seeing stuff blow up or a Monster of the Day biting the dust, we get to see some very important character development going on between the characters! Sometimes romance, sometimes family related, sometimes friendship related, but always important character development that helps solidify their character for future episodes and/or adventures from their perspective! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AdrenalineMakeover : Not that Usagi, was ever really shy to begin with, but she REALLY took a Level in Awesome, when she awoke to her full potential as Sailor Moon, and started using it on a regular basis, starting with “Cosmic Guardians: Part One;” with her going so far as to be Promoted to the Leader of the Power Rangers in season two! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AfterActionPatchup : Happened to Kras'hir in “Cosmic Guardians: Part One;” after Usagi/Sailor Moon utilized her full powers, and she accidentally caused Kras'hir to be hurt in the melee, Kras'hir got patched up in a quiet scene while the rest of the Rangers (minus BlackHawk) got introduced to their new powers. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/DeathCourse : Practically EVERYTHING and anything in the Chaos Realm in “The Laughter of the Thirsting Gods: Part One,” was designed to be this. There was nothing that was even REMOTELY safe about that place, and the only moment of rest the Rangers and Kras'hir got, was when they got to Nurgle's place. And kind of fitting, since Nurgle was the ONLY one of the Chaos Gods who didn't threaten, try to attack, or force anybody to do something that they didn't want to do. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ExtremelyShortTimespan : While all of the episodes of this series written so far (on their own), occur during a relatively short time; even the episodes that have multiple parts are notable usages of this writing technique. “The Red Flaw” mini-arc occurs during the time-span of just a few hours; “Orange Crush” begins in the morning, and ends later in the same afternoon; while “Land of Confusion” begins in early afternoon, it's unknown just how much time has actually passed (though Word of God says that Master Vile's magic FROZE time in Coastal Falls, while the Power Rangers themselves spent a few hours, trying to deal with Mirror Radiguet and everything else in the Dark Mirror Dimension.) Finally, “The Laughter of Thirsting Gods” occurred during a time-span of 48 hours or less in actual Core Earth time, though it certainly felt a lot LONGER to the Power Rangers, due to everything they had to go through. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/NowItsMyTurn : The definition of Mirror Radiguet in “Land of Confusion: Part One.” Every time the Rangers set up what would normally be a devastating attack against a normal monster, Mirror Radiguet always follows it up with a far MORE, devastating attack against the Power Rangers! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/OneSceneWonder : While most of the Monsters of the Day that the Power Rangers face, can easily fit this definition; one particular mention goes to Jaedite. An Adviser/General to Queen Beryl, who is introduced—than promptly killed, in the same episode, “Cosmic Guardians: Part One.” This was to show that unlike Emperor Diabolica, Queen Beryl is NOT interested in messing around with the Power Rangers, or anyone who tries to CROSS her! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ForTheEvulz : The whole purpose of Radiguet's character in general. He's not attacking people, making sinister plots, or crafting some elaborate revenge scheme because he feels SLIGHTED; he does it merely because “It Amuses Him,” and he thinks that Core Earth (and the whole Universe, by extension), deserves a BETTER class of villain than what Emperor Diabolica and Queen Hedrian have been able to provide. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Foreshadowing : Used several times in several episodes throughout this series. Most notably, BlackHawk reveals himself to be a Woo Foo Warrior in his debut episode in “Pump it Up,” the skill turns out to be very useful in helping his friends, the Power Rangers, fight against a Brainwashed and Crazy Naruto in “The Red Flaw” mini-arc. It was also helpful in helping BlackHawk tap into the hidden power of the Orange Ruby, in order to become a Power Ranger. In Ebony's debut episode, she revealed herself to be infatuated with Draco Malfoy. It turns out to be a pretty significant fact, when the infatuation turned out to be something DEEPER in “The Laughter of the Thirsting Gods” two-part season finale, as Ebony saw Slaneesh as Draco Malfoy, as her greatest love interest, leading to BlackHawk and Ebony having a fall-out with each other. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/OptOut : Attempted by Drako in “The Laughter of the Thirsting Gods: Part Two.” Deciding that the situation on the Diabolic spaceship had deteriorated far too much for his liking, Drako had intended to go to the Chaos Realm to become an apprentice to T'zeentch. But in a case of “Did Not Think This Through,” Drako specifically wished to be taken outside, and he was; outside the Diabolic spaceship in space, where he died an instant death! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Protectorate : Pretty much Core Earth falls under this, in regards to what the Power Rangers fight to defend. They also protect each other, Omnus, Zordon, Alpha 8, D.O.G., Bash, Smash, Toby's Mother, BlackHawk's Mother, Sans, Papyrus, Undyne, Alphys, Lettuce's Father, Rita, Zedd, and pretty much everyone else who lives on Core Earth. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/SentientCosmicForce : It is practically implied, and applied, that the Morphing Grid, the Chaos Realm, and the Warp; are not only tied in together somehow, but it's at least somewhat Sentient, powered by the countless number of souls, either killed by Daemons, or from fallen Daemons themselves. The Morphing Grid and the Warp are essentially Neutral in nature, as they do not express powers by itself, but only through the people who use them. Therefore, it is up to the user, whether to use these powers for good or for destructive ends. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ShaggySearchTechnique : In “The Laughter of the Thirsting Gods: Part One”, this was the only way the Rangers managed to get back to Core Earth at both the RIGHT place, and the RIGHT time! By searching through the Library of T'zeentch, they accidentally stumble upon the right Magic Book, that summons a portal that takes them to the correct location, and the correct time to fight Emperor Diabolica, and his marching army of 10,000 Imps! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/SuperMultiPurposeRoom : In “Cosmic Guardians: Part One”, this is revealed to be the case for the apartment that Undyne and Alphys share. It helps that it's actually BIGGER on the Inside, than it Looks on the Outside. The fact that Alphys is a scientist who is always tinkering with things, certainly helps with the ever-changing layout of the room! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ThoseWereOnlyTheirScouts : In “Cosmic Guardians: Part One”, Usagi/Sailor Moon and Kras'hir were celebrating their initial victory over the Youma that Queen Beryl had sent to destroy Usagi, only to reveal that those were only the ADVANCE scouts, and that more dangerous opponents were on their way to fight her AND her fellow Power Rangers! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ThrowAwayCountry : More like a Throw-Away Dimension, but it still counts. The Dark Mirror Dimension in “Land of Confusion” two-part special, is basically depicting Core Earth, as to what COULD happen to it, should the Rangers FAIL in their mission to protect it against the forces of evil, such as Greater Scope Villain Radiguet! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/VillainousValour : Shown by Drako a couple of times, especially during the times he was a temporary ally to the Rangers, during “The Red Flaw” mini-arc, and “Orange Crush: Part One.” Although not as significant, Mirror BlackHawk also showed this trait, in “Land of Confusion: Part Two.” After BlackHawk delivered the finishing blow to his Dark Mirror counterpart, Mirror BlackHawk decides to Face Death With Dignity, and admits to the REAL BlackHawk, that HE was a better Warrior than Mirror BlackHawk was! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/WalkIntoMordor : The whole experience in the Chaos Realm for the Power Rangers in “The Laughter of the Thirsting Gods: Part One” went like this. They could not and were not able to warp from place to place in order to talk to the Chaos Gods; they HAD to go through all the EXCRUCIATING ordeals/traps/obstacles in their way, before they were allowed to speak to each Chaos God. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/WasntThatFun : Definitely the (sarcastic) attitude of the Power Rangers, after escaping from the Dark Mirror Dimension, in “Land of Confusion: Part Two”; and returning from the Chaos Realm in “The Laughter of the Thirsting Gods: Part One.” / That's it for the Tropes that I'm listing this time! As Season Two goes on, there might be even more Tropes that get introduced further on down the road! Stay tuned to see for yourself! Enough said!
