- This episode feature the first full American filmed zord battle. This would become commonplace at least once a season throughout the remainder of the Saban produced years.
- Zordon uses the Morphin Grid to create the roses needed to silence Kimberly and Tommy's excessive bickering.
- This episode marks the first time a Mighty Morphin' Power Ranger has performed a morphing sequence by pulling the morpher to their left shoulder, circulating their arms around and thrusting their morpher forward before calling out their morphing shout. This action has also been used by Jason in Wild Force's "Forever Red" and Adam in Operation Overdrive's "Once a Ranger".
- In an earlier script draft, Tommy and Kimberly were roller-blading when they tripped over the magic rope that put the hated rivalry spell on them.
- The drum that Skull has would later be seen in the background of Bulk and Skull's garage in A Zeo Beginning.
- This episode marks the Rangers' first face-to-face encounter with Rita since her return.
- Although Tommy had (and always would) been shown inserting Saba into the slot in Tigerzord's cockpit to convert it to Warrior Mode, while under Rita's control it somehow transformed on its own almost immediately.
- The Thunder Saber was mistakenly called the 'Power Sword'.
- While he and Kimberly are under Rita's spell, Tommy says "leave this to a professional" while they are fighting the Putties. However, Kimberly has been a Power Ranger longer than he has.
