101-DOTD.
-   Only after the teens had become Rangers and won the battle did Zordon tell them: "Now that you have become Power Rangers, you must follow three basic rules or lose the protection of the power. First, never use your power for personal gain. Second, never escalate a battle unless Rita forces you. And finally, keep your identities secret; no one may know you are a Power Ranger."

121-GWE5.
-   In the Command Center after Tommy had allied with the Rangers, Zordon told Tommy the same rules he'd told the teens in 101-DOTD.

140-DDy2.
-   After the Ultrazord had destroyed Cyclopsis, the moon palace flew away from Angel Grove as Goldar and Rita feared that the Rangers would attempt to destroy them, but the Rangers had no such intentions, apparently following an unspoken rule against attacking villains' dwellings.

228-PTr2.
-   After the power transfer, Zordon told Rocky, Adam, and Aisha the rules, as follows: "Rangers, you possess powers so that you may protect the Earth. Use them to defend, never to attack. To ensure justice, never for vengeance. To preserve righteousness, never for selfish glory. Remember this, and they will protect you forever."
-   After the new team's first battle, Zordon told the teens to remember that their strength lay in their ability to judge each situation and avoid the use of force whenever possible.

-   Rather than explicitly giving new Pink Ranger Kat a set of rules, Zordon told her to listen to her fellow Rangers as they guided her in the use of her powers.

329-MVA1.
-   Despite an unspoken rule against targeting villains' dwellings, Tommy and Kat teleported to the moon palace to beat Master Vile to the Zeo Crystal hidden in the caves below; in departing, they would also steal back the caged Falconzord.

343-HdA2.
-   After taking Aisha's place, the beginning of Tanya's orientation to Ranger business occurred off-screen, so it's uncertain what rules, if any, she was told.

630-DSR2.

702-QsQ2.
-   Alpha, the closest thing to a mentor for the Galaxy Rangers, never issued any rules to the new Rangers.

743-End1.
-   During Trakeena's attack and the evacuation of an area during the destruction of the Industrial Dome, Leo had Damon stand watch as he stole a case of explosives from a GSA Humvee, and they ran off with them, a rare instance of Rangers stealing.

744-End2.
-   Despite an unspoken rule against targeting villains' dwellings, the Rangers attacked the Scorpion Stinger with the Megaship to save the evacuating Terra Venture shuttles.

801-OpLs.
-   Captain Mitchell did not issue the selected Lightspeed Ranger teens any specific rules, although their employment in his Aquabase ensured his ability to guide them in their conduct.

829-EggC.
-   After Artie had conned Bird Bane out of $20,000 during a ransom exchange, morphed Kelsey told Artie he'd stolen the money and was nothing but a common thief, but as he was silent, she gave a "whatever" and ran off.

730-TenP.
-   After the Space and Galaxy Rangers had pounded the Psycho Rangers, Leo told them to quit while they still could, but they refused, so the Rangers finished them off.

733-FPst.
-   Confronting Magnetox with his powerful new armor, Leo gave the monster one last chance to leave, but it approached, hungry for his power, so he destroyed it, returning his friends' stolen energies.
?   If Magnetox had accepted Leo's unusual offer for retreat, he would have taken the stolen powers of the three Rangers and Magna Defender with him.

734-TVol.
-   When the Rangers summoned their Orion armor after Decibat's speakers had been broken, the monster was nervous, saying he thought he'd be going now, but they proceeded to destroy him with their fireball anyway, on Damon's command.

735-EnLG.
-   After the Rangers had obtained the Galaxy Quasar Launchers, Leo offered monster-Deviot one chance to give up, but he declined, so they fired their weapons, making a huge explosion, but Deviot then grew.

736-BMut.
-   Fighting Swabbies, the Rangers fought and repeatedly blasted the pirate foot soldiers with their Quasar Launchers, though it seems likely that the Swabbies could have been brainwashed human slaves.

737-GOTL.
-   During Grunchor's rampage on Terra Venture, the Rangers discovered a revived Deviot with a remote.
-   As Grunchor's trail approached and the Rangers cleared out, Maya yanked Deviot off his higher platform, making him lose his scanner and panic as it was deactivated.
-   After Deviot had blasted at Leo, Maya leapt and slashed Deviot, then went to finish him off while he was down, but Leo blocked her saber with his, saying they needed him to tell them how to stop Grunchor; Maya shouted they had to get rid of Deviot while they had the chance.
-   Interrogated by Leo, Deviot didn't remember how to use the device, until Maya prepared to impale him, and he frighteningly gave in, giving them information and then scrambling away; Damon started to go after him, but Maya told him to let the coward run.
-   Mike, in Defender Torozord, delivered a strike with his axe directly to Mutiny's castle atop Grunchor's head, soon causing Mutiny to retreat.

740-HGrv.
-   The Rangers destroyed Hexuba with the Zords; this followed their first unsuccessful effort to destroy her with their Orion attack.

741-RTit.
-   The Rangers intended to use their Orion attack on Barbarax before being interrupted by Deviot.

745-End3.
-   Knowing the only way to stop Terra Venture from crashing into Mirinoi was Trakeena's destruction, Red Armored Leo pulled Trakeena in and, wishing he didn't have to, fired pointblank, destroying both Trakeena and his armor; Trakeena, however, would eventually return.

801-OpLs.
-   Although Ghouligan thought the Rangers didn't have the guts to blast him, they fired their Rescue Blasters at once, destroying him.

803-TByF.
-   Fighting Vypra, morphed Carter drew his Rescue Blaster; as they faced off gun-to-sword, he told her to put down her weapon nice and easy, shouting again to put it down, but she generated a wall of fire before vanishing.

811-FDIS.
-   As the Rangers regrouped after fighting Vypra and Batlings, Carter shouted he wouldn't tell her again - get out of Mariner Bay.
-   Backing up as the newly arrived evil Titanium Ranger approached, the Rangers told him to stop, not wanting any trouble, but he drew his Titanium Laser and blasted them before pounding them with his bare hands.
-   Pounded by Titanium, the Rangers retreated outside onto the roof, where they aimed the Unilaser at him as he followed.
-   Carter told Titanium to stop right there, but he transformed his weapon into axe mode in response; saying he'd warned him, Carter fired, but the axe blade absorbed the blast.
-   As the teens confronted Titanium a second time, Joel pleadingly told Titanium they didn't want to have to hurt him, but he laughed that their powers were no match for his.
-   After they had morphed, Carter told Titanium not to make them do something they didn't want to do, but he told them to give it their best shot, pounding them easily.
-   As Titanium saw his axe nearby after the Rangers had turned the tide with their new V-Lancers, Carter shouted, "Don't do it!" but as he ran for the weapon, Miss Fairweather told the Rangers to go to blaster mode, and they would fire a blast which they expected to be fatal.
-   As Titanium turned, his visor was open, revealing human eyes within.
-   Carter ordered, "Stand down before this escalates! Don't force us to destroy you!" but Titanium nodded his visor shut and approached weakly with his blaster aimed.
-   Miss Fairweather, watching, called for energy level ten, and they switched to full power.
-   As the Rangers aimed the V-Lancers on full power, which they surely expected to be fatal following the previous incident, Mitchell painfully told them not to fire, repeating the order when Carter was surprised.
-   Returning to base, the teens (with the exception of Dana) were furious that Mitchell had made them retreat during their perhaps only chance.
-   The teens' outrage over not being allowed to kill their foe was quelled when they learned that he was Mitchell's son.

814-CCob.
-   To help Ryan as he struggled against Demonite's clone elsewhere, Carter ambushed Demonite, pinning him against the wall with Unilaser and V-Lancer barrels thrust against his chest; he demanded that Demonite freeze and call off his clone, but the monster cockily refused.
-   Carter told Demonite not to force him to destroy both him and his clone, but Falkar reminded him he'd blow himself up at such close distance; Demonite proceeded to egg him on, shouting to give it to him, although he cringed faintly in preparation for the blast.
-   Carter finally withdrew, saying this wasn't the right way, and he planned to help Ryan; as he turned, however, Demonite went to attack, at which point Carter twirled into a crouch and fired both weapons pointblank into Demonite, engulfing the area in an explosion.

816-CStr.
-   When Diabolico confronted the Rangers, Carter told him, "Don't you get it? We destroyed your monsters. Don't make us destroy you too!" but Diabolico had them give it their best shot.
-   The Rangers eventually destroyed titan-sized Diabolico with the Lightspeed Solarzord.

822-TrR2.
-   Carter's high-powered Battle Booster punch caused Triskull to fall and go limp without exploding.
-   Twice, the Rangers used Zord finishing moves on giant mutated Trakeena, the second succeeding with the help of the Galaxy Rangers.

823-FiCr.
-   As Moleman charged, Kelsey flipped back with her V-Lancer, shouting for him to freeze as she aimed and cocked the handle, but as he struck her, she blasted a beam through him and followed with more blasts.

824-ChoP.
-   Upset over the unfairness of Carter's use of his blaster as the Rangers then summoned their V-Lancers, Cyclopter urgently cried for them to hold on, and they did.
-   Cyclopter challenged the Rangers to fight him without their weapons, in hand-to-hand combat, and Chad and Dana agreed for the team, if that was what it would take for him to leave.
-   Confronting Cyclopter for the second time, this time downtown, Carter told the monster to leave now while he had the chance, but Cyclopter invited them on, and the four Rangers fought him in hand-to-hand combat.
-   Soon, unmorphed Chad walked up and shouted for the monster to leave them alone, battling him hand to hand while unmorphed; Cyclopter soon summoned a forked staff from orange energy, and Chad declared in tired annoyance that he just didn't learn, morphing.
-   As Cyclopter fought the Rangers, Chad fought him off and summoned his V-Lancer after telling him not to say he hadn't warned him.

825-YAgn.
-   Flying by in his Red Mobile Armored Vehicle, Carter fired a series of missiles after the fleeing Mantevil, intially missing but soon striking and destroying him.

829-EggC.
-   When the Rangers confronted Jinxer and Batlings, Carter ordered Jinxer to get out of there now, but he blasted at them before later retreating.

833-OlUn.
-   When titan-sized Olympius lost his added strength, the Rangers finished him off with the Omega and Lightspeed Solarzord finishing moves; he would survive destruction, albeit injured and significantly weakened for weeks.

835-WebW.
-   Carter's destruction of the Vyprari left Vypra so weak she apparently passed out in the vehicle's flaming rubble, but she would survive to retreat at some point.

837-WrQn.
?   Knowing Bansheera's weakness, Carter struck her in the midsection with his charged Battle Booster punch to finish the fight, but he was supposed to strike where her heart would have been.
-   Safe with the others, Carter expected that to be the last they saw of Bansheera, but he would be proven wrong.

838-SDem.
-   During a fight with Olympius and a zombie-like Diabolico, Carter flew in on the Trans-Armor Cycle blasting Olympius and then slammed the bike's rear end into the prince.
-   Telling Diabolico, "That's it for you," Carter raced for the hypnotized demon, but Olympius blasted him off the bike, and Diabolico lifted him into the air.
-   Carter urged Diabolico to remember Bansheera's betrayal, having destroyed Vypra and then forced him to destroy Loki.
-   Confiding in Carter, Diabolico nearly handed him the Golden Key, but as Olympius blasted with his pike, Diabolico shoved Carter out of the way; critically wounded, Diabolico fell and exploded.
-   Carter angrily protested, "He didn't deserve that!" and brought their weapons back online for Olympius's turn.
-   When Olympius and Diabolico were resurrected into advanced forms, Carter tried to wave down Diabolico, telling him not to let Bansheera control him, but he blew a (relatively harmless) fireblast from his mouth at them.
-   Saying they didn't have a choice anymore, Carter had them form the Megazords.
-   Armed with the Lifeforce Megazord after the crippling of the other Zords, Carter led the Rangers in destroying giant Diabolico and Olympius with full lifeforce power.

MMPR: The Movie.
-   When the stone gatekeepers came to life and attacked the Ninjetti Rangers as they sought the Great Power, Rocky interjected during the fight, "Whoa, let's talk about this!" but then had a spear hurled at his groin; all of the gatekeepers would eventually be destroyed, allowing the teens access to the Great Power.

-   After the Megazord had picked up the prone Dragonzord and thrown it to the ground, then fought it with the Power Sword, then swung it by the tail and thrown it into a mountain, Jason ordered the Rangers to increase the power, saying, "We've gotta save Tommy!"; the Megazord then picked up and threw the Dragonzord a second time.
-   After the Rangers had thoroughly pummeled the Dragonzord, Jason told Tommy to give it up, and when he refused, Jason apologized it had to be like this but said he had to destroy his sword to save him and the world, at which point they both leapt down and engaged in a final battle in which the evil spell was removed from Tommy.

131-CKim.
-   Zordon told the Rangers they could destroy Samurai Fan Man with the Zords, but the monster was still small at the time.
-   On countless occasions with all sets of Zords, the Rangers would occasionally activate more advanced Zord configurations than appeared necessary to defeat the giant monster of the day; for example, the Rangers would on occasion summon an Ultrazord when they hadn't yet tried using the Megazord's standard finishing move.

132-ASIB.
-   Zordon had Alpha teleport the five Rangers to their Zords before Goldar, Scorpina, and Babe Ruthless had grown.

148-POTM.

-   Alpha, piloting the Astro Megazord, reflected an energy attack back at Clawhammer, then had the Megazord go on the offensive.
-   After punching giant Clawhammer away and climbing up from the lava pit it was dangling over once the Rangers had taken control, the Megazord kicked Clawhammer in the groin four times in a row, headbutted him twice, then swung it around by its antennae until they snapped off; the Megazord then threw the monster into the lava pit, where it exploded; these attacks seemed far more aggressive and violent than normal.

620-SvSv.
-   Attacked by native humanoid beings after digging up numerous alien pods from the ground on the planet Kadix, the teens morphed and fought the beings, with T.J. and then Andros shooting the beings with their Astro Blasters to hold them back as they retreated to the Megaship.

624-ZhnD.
-   Receiving a beating from the Rebel general Yatru, who had summoned Coralizer and was unsually strong but otherwise appeared human, morphed Zhane summoned the Super Silverizer and delivered a slash to Yatru's chest as the general charged, and he then morphed into Darkonda.

629-DSR1.
-   Planting explosives with T.J. on the surface of Dark Specter's asteroid, Andros blasted Quantrons with his Astro Blaster, even shooting one pointblank in the chest after kicking it.

722-EvGa.

736-BMut.
-   Fighting Swabbies, the Rangers fought and repeatedly blasted the pirate foot soldiers with their Quasar Launchers, though it seems likely that the Swabbies could have been brainwashed human slaves.

738-USun.

806-WODe.
-   Outmanuevering Vypra's Vyprari with their new Lightspeed Cycles, the girls drove up on either side of Vypra and fired their Rescue Blasters at her at close range, causing her to grimace and swerve, her shields still holding somewhat.

808-UpCh.
-   As he eventually fought back while being attacked by rival Brian, Chad actually struck Brian in the face with a jump spinning kick, following with a foot sweep; it was after he'd slammed Brian to the ground with a strong leaping kick that Chad extended his hand to go.

-   Pounded by the evil Titanium Ranger, the Rangers retreated outside onto the roof, where they aimed the Unilaser at him as he followed.

-   When Titanium got back up laboriously, Carter was astounded, saying, "Nothing could have survived that!"
-   As Titanium turned, his visor was open, revealing human eyes within.
-   Carter ordered, "Stand down before this escalates! Don't force us to destroy you!" but Titanium nodded his visor shut and approached weakly with his blaster aimed.
-   Miss Fairweather, watching, called for energy level ten, and they switched to full power; it seemed, however, that the Rangers could have captured the Morpher thief at this point rather than kill him.
-   As the Rangers aimed the V-Lancers on full power, which they surely expected to be fatal following the previous incident, Mitchell painfully told them not to fire, repeating the order when Carter was surprised.
-   Returning to base, the teens (with the exception of Dana) were furious that Mitchell had made them retreat during their perhaps only chance.
-   The teens' outrage over not being allowed to kill their foe was quelled when they learned that he was Mitchell's son.

814-CCob.
-   To help Ryan as he struggled against Demonite's clone elsewhere, Carter ambushed Demonite, pinning him against the wall with Unilaser and V-Lancer barrels thrust against his chest; he demanded that Demonite freeze and call off his clone, but the monster cockily refused.
-   Carter finally withdrew, saying this wasn't the right way, and he planned to help Ryan; as he turned, however, Demonite went to attack, at which point Carter twirled into a crouch and fired both weapons pointblank into Demonite, engulfing the area in an explosion.
-   As the Lightspeed Megazord was being mangled in combat with giant Demonite, Carter formed the Supertrain Megazord although Demonite was apparently not titan-sized.

824-ChoP.
-   Cyclopter challenged the Rangers to a fight to prove he was the best; saying they weren't falling for that, Carter blasted the monster.
-   Cyclopter got up, upset over the unfairness of the use of his weapon, and as Carter had them summon their V-Lancers, he urgently cried for them to hold on, and they did, Chad and Dana agreeing for the team when he challenged them to fight him in hand-to-hand combat.
-   Later, Chad fought the well-trained Cyclopter while unmorphed after telling him to leave his friends alone; he then morphed when the monster summoned a staff.
-   As Chad prepared to fight Cyclopter with his V-Lancer, Carter nearby aimed his Rescue Blaster, but Chad told him it was his fight, and the other Rangers backed off.

837-WrQn.
-   Hurrying through the skull castle in a mad rush to stop Bansheera while the others were being burned alive outside, Carter fought hordes of Batlings before shooting all the ones he didn't have time to fight.

221-ZdMM.
-   When all the kids had been accounted for and it appeared Tommy was still out trick-or-treating with his group of kids, Kim attempted to call him on the communicator to ask him which kids he had.

323-DSP2.
-   Billy called Rocky, Aisha, and Adam on Rocky's communicator from the hospital to tell them Kim had just awakened.

407-EDog.
-   After observing Digster, Cogs, Klank and Orbus, and Sprocket in a cavern with a lava pool in it, planning to make the lava run down the streets of Angel Grove, Kat morphed and drove around on her Zeo Jet Cycle, simply planning on finding Smokey and getting back to the others.

411-AFBS.
-   Adam suggested taking a sample of Rocky's mutant, metal-eating plant to Alpha to ask about it (since Rocky couldn't remember which seeds he'd crossed in the lab), and then Rocky, apparently not having heard Adam, got the same idea, and they left to take the sample to Alpha after Rocky had clipped off a bit of its leaf.

438-Aurc.
-   When Tanya wanted to teleport to Mysterio Island, thinking her parents might still be alive, Zordon reminded her that the teleportation system was to be used strictly for Power Ranger emergencies only, but he then said that these were special circumstances which called for the bending of their rules.

444-BMOT.
-   Alpha was pleased when it appeared that the teens had stopped by the Power Chamber for a surprise visit; they were actually there because of Tommy's suspicion that time was repeating itself.

450-Good.
-   Adam tried calling Jason on the communicator when Jason was late for his martial arts class; at the time, Jason was fending off Cogs and Tengas while his powers waned.

512-Al&D.
-   As it seemed Reggie was about to beat him up in the hallway at school, Justin reached into his back pocket and pulled out his Turbo Key, flipping out its blade and causing it to glow with blue light behind his back.
-   In the Power Chamber when Justin teleported into the room and crashed into the ground, Kat was confused; when he told her that he'd had to teleport when stuck in a tree after being chased by Reggie and Junior, she was upset that he'd used his powers in front of them; he said he was pretty sure they hadn't seen him.
-   Still upset, Kat began to repeat that they weren't supposed to use their powers for personal gain, but he was able to finish her sentence for her, knowing he shouldn't have teleported; he explained he didn't know how to get through to the bullies, but Kat sweetly told him he was way too smart not to figure this out.

523-PhPh.
-   Some time after they'd been studying the Phantom Ranger in the Power Chamber with Justin, the four teens were worried about Justin after Carlos had used the payphone outside the Youth Center to call Nico's mom; she'd told him that Nico had gone to play soccer, prompting T.J. to have the teens check on Justin with their communicators.

528-FOPh.
-   The teens went to the Power Chamber to check on Cassie when she hadn't shown up at the Juice Bar to study with them as planned; she'd actually gone to the park with the intention of meeting the Phantom Ranger but had actually been ambushed by General Havoc.

802-LsTm.
-   Not realizing who Miss Fairweather was, Joel tried to impress her by showing her his Morpher and bragging of his status as the Green Ranger.

821-TrR1.
-   As Aero Rescue Three turned and flew off after dousing an apartment fire, it left a cloud of paper fliers which rained down on the rescue crowd, and people clamored for the fliers.
-   The flier was quite similar to Joel's original Sky Cowboy flier, but with him in his Rescue jacket and with Aero Rescue Three in the background rather than a plane.
-   Later, unmorphed Joel signed flyers for an excited civilian crowd as the teens waited by the Rover.

836-Lime.
-   During Dana's supermodel career, neither Glitz Magazine nor her fans seemed to place any importance on her status as a Ranger, perhaps indicating her modeling success was in no way a product of her Ranger career.
