Power Rangers Time ForceEdit
A recurring theme in the series is that an individual controls his or her own destiny, as exemplified through Wes' character development - he continually refuses to adhere to the life his father has set for him as successor of the lucrative Collins business, remaining committed to traversing his own path, even when he is told by Alex that it is destiny for him to take over the company after his father's death. Other characters also fight against the currents of predetermined destiny, such as how Eric determinedly fights his way out of squalor and poverty to become head commander of the Silver Guardians, or when Jen and the other Time Force Rangers ignore the predetermined events of history and choose to return to the year 2001 and save Wes from dying. Even the penultimate clash of the season - Ransik with the Time Force Rangers - culminates with Ransik's choice to accept responsibility for his crimes and carve his own path in life anew.

- According to Daniel Southworth at Power Morphicon 2007, due to the popularity, and the good relationship between the production crew and cast they almost came back for a second season - whether this meant a second season of time force, or the cast being used for the Sentai adaption that became Wild Force is unknown.
- The End of Time is considered by some to be the best series finale due to its darker and emotional tone.
- An oddity with Time Force is that it is the first series since the trend started in Power Rangers: Turbo that did not have most of or all of the Rangers' arsenal end up being destroyed in the final battle.
- Power Rangers Time Force is the second Power Rangers season to feature a female Ranger as the leader of the team, and is also the first (and so far the only) Power Rangers season to feature a Pink Ranger as the leader.
- Power Rangers Time Force were the first team of rangers to not feature white boots or white gloves as part of their uniforms, they were the same color of their respective ranger color designation. This trend is true for all ranger series after Time Force except for Wild Force, S.P.D., and RPM, in which the rangers wore white gloves.
- It is the first series to have the rangers' opaque visors the same color as the rest of their suits (previously, opaque visors were all black). In Power Rangers Dino Thunder, Trent has a red visor.
- Power Rangers Time Force is the only series thus far to feature a sixth ranger that wore the same color as another team member (Wes and Eric both wore red as their color scheme). It should be noted that in Power Rangers Ninja Storm technically Tori and Blake were "Blue Rangers" albeit different shades of blue (Aqua and Navy) and Shane and Hunter being both "Red Rangers" being a different shade of red (Red and Crimson).
- Power Rangers Time Force is also notable for being the first series not to "destroy" it's monsters, but rather "capture" them in containers. This method would be repeated in Power Rangers S.P.D., where monsters are "contained" rather than destroyed.
- It was the first series to employ Power Rangers from the future (Years from its current events), this would be done again in Power Rangers S.P.D. with the addition of the Omega Ranger and Nova Ranger.
- It was the first series to feature a family member accidentally finding out their relative was a Power Ranger (Mr. Collins found out Wes was the Red Ranger when his visor was damaged in a battle). This would be repeated in Power Rangers Wild Force when Alyssa's father mistakenly found she was the White Ranger (when her father, a martial arts instructor, witnessed the White Ranger using the fighting style that he taught her), in Power Rangers Ninja Storm when Shane's older brother accidentally found out he was the Red Ranger, and in Power Rangers Jungle Fury when Luen discovers that Theo is a ranger.
- It was the second series to feature villains who truly reformed (Ransik and Nadira) and turned to the side of good. Power Rangers in Space was the first as Astronema reformed at the end and became the 2nd Pink Ranger in the following season.
- One episode of Power Rangers: Time Force was dedicated in memory of Thuy Trang, a member of the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers cast. Trang died in an automobile accident on September 3, 2001 on Interstate 5 when the vehicle she was a passenger in went out of control. A second passenger in the vehicle was Angela Rockwood-Nguyen, a former actress/model and the wife of fellow Vietnamese-American actor Dustin Nguyen. Thuy Trang died in the accident and Rockwood-Nguyen became quadriplegic.
- In one episode of Time Force, you can -almost- completely see the face of Eric's Super Sentai counterpart, Naoto. This occurs in the episode which first introduced the Quantum Ranger. Due to the two actors looking highly similar, a lot of Timeranger footage was kept showing Naoto from a distance, and in one scene, his face is covered briefly, but he begins to pull his hands away, giving a brief glimpse of Naoto's face.
- In addition, in a early Timeforce promo you can see Tetsuya, Wes' Sentai counterpart, performing the Timeranger henshin sequence. You can also see the full entrance of the Time Jets, which was cut short for Timeforce.
- This was the first season to have two Filipino actors portray power rangers, Kevin Kleinberg (Trip), and Michael Copon (Lucas). They both also happen to be half-German.
- This was the first and only season to have a ranger with green hair.
- Power Rangers Time Force is one out of only 3 seasons to feature 12 Rangers in a crossover/teamup episode, the episode being "Time For Lightspeed", the others being "Reinforcements From The Future Part 2" in Power Rangers Wild Force, and "Wormhole" in Power Rangers SPD. Other seasons have only had up to 10 or 11 Rangers. Time Force is also the first to have 12 Rangers in a teamup.
- Time Force is the first season (and so far only), known to have a Megazord which can switch from one Megazord mode to another, using only the 5 core components. Example: Time Flyer 1 forms the torso of Mode Red and Mode Blue. Time Flyers 2 and 3 form the arms of Mode Blue and the legs for Mode Red. And Time Flyers 4 and 5 form the legs for Mode Blue and Arms for Mode Red. Most Megazords cannot do this.
- In the episode "Ransik Lives", Ransik gives a televised terrorist like speech which included the monster blowing up buildings. The episode aired on FOX Kids three days after September 11th and they blocked the speech out with the theme song. Later in the Disney reruns, The speech was altered and showed the monster blasting mountains instead. Many more edits were to follow.
- In the 2-parter episode "Movie Madness", the actor that Jen was fascinated with martial arts films--"Frankie Chang"--- is a parody of actor/martial artist Jackie Chan.
- The series' 3-parter finale "The End of Time" is the second Power Rangers season finale arc to feature a 3-episode end. The first was Power Rangers: Lost Galaxy, with its 3-parter finale "Journey's End" (December 16, 1999-December 17, 1999).
- Power Rangers: Time Force is Jason David Frank's favorite season of Power Rangers.
- Episode 22: The Last Race hits the 400th Episode Mark.
