Elements/Homages to Dino Thunder
- When the S.P.D. Rangers first talk with Conner, Kira and Ethan, the Red, Yellow and Blue Rangers of the Dino Thunder Team, only Jack the S.P.D. Red Ranger, Sky, the S.P.D. Blue Ranger and Z, the S.P.D. Yellow Ranger, are the only ones to speak.
- Kat states that the Dino Thunder Team has faced off against the most treacherous villains in all of history. Some of this is true, as Tommy faced off against Rita Repulsa and Lord Zedd, the Machine Empire, Divatox, Lothor's Army, and later on, the Armada. Conner, Kira, Ethan and Trent have only faced off against Lothor's Army. Kira later faces Thrax's evil Alliance in Operation Overdrive. Tommy and Trent would later face against Lord Draven. The core three Dino Rangers would later help the Beast Morphers Rangers in a battle against Evox Army, along with the Mighty Morphin and Dino Charge Rangers
- Kira jumps off of the wall and flies to Morgana the same way she did with Tori in Thunder Storm.
- Similar to Trent, Sam, the white-colored Sixth Ranger, is left out of the battle. Trent was left out of some battles because he was evil or he had to tend to other matters.
- The S.P.D. Rangers mention everything the Dino Thunder Rangers have done:
- The place where Broodwing corners the Dino Thunder Rangers is the same place that the Dino Rangers fight against Goldenrod, and where Jack fights an Orange-Head in Wormhole.
- Conner and Jack temporarily defend the S.W.A.T. Truck. Conner previously defended Hayley while she was driving the Dino Thunder Truck to destroy Mesogog's Island Fortress.
- Ethan brings up how their previous base was a cave.
- Dragoul is similar to Demagnetron, who also drills underground for attacks.
- Nine Rangers participate in the battle, similar to Bakuryuu Sentai Abaranger vs. Hurricaneger.
- This episode was originally followed by Impact, which was aired out-of-order and before this episode by Disney.
- Although the main three Dino Rangers appear, Tommy and Trent do not. They both appear in the second Dino Thunder/SPD teamup, Wormhole, though Jeffrey Parazzo plays both Trent and voices Tommy as Jason David Frank was absent (because of this Tommy doesn't appear unmorphed).
- Trent appears in archive footage what Kat shows the SPD Rangers
- This and Wormhole are Kira's only appearances without a Mighty Morphin Power Ranger credited in the same episode. She was a main cast member with Tommy Oliver, although he missed an episode being stuck in amber and this does not mean Jason David Frank appeared in every episode, and she appeared in Once A Ranger with Adam Park.
- The Hidden Episode, "Before it Began" a Dino Thunder DVD extra which featured Ethan and Kira being shown the future of the Power Rangers through clips of this series, is rendered non-canon with this episode as they need everything explained to them.
- Jack's SPD badge, which he shows the Dino Thunder Rangers, contains the Dekaranger terms for his weapons.
- This is the first team-up which doesn't involve a past villain returning.
- This episode marks the final appearances of Gruumm's bike and Morgana's battle suit.
- This episode marks the only time that Cruger morphs alongside the other S.P.D. Rangers.
- This is the first team-up episode to only have nine participating Rangers in battle.
- According to Greg Aronowitz during RangerStop 2015, his original plans were for Broodwing to use the Dino Gems to create clones of the Dino Thunder Rangers. However, Disney told him to use the time travel dynamic since they were concerned about the audience being confused on whether or not those were the actual team members.
- Schools typically do not hold one-year reunions.
- The end credits misspell Conner's name as Connor.
- Episode. 42: Skull Talking - Super Sentai counterpart in Dekaranger. See comparison page. (fight footage)
- Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger vs. Abaranger - Super Sentai counterpart in Dekaranger. See comparison page.
