Mushrooms are everywhere. Suddenly, the world was flooded with mushrooms. Meanwhile, Kaito and Juran made their decision and in transforming they've grounded their opposition to Tojitendo's forces immediately. There are three Geartlingers left. In the plaza, a figure was captivated by Kaito's enthusiasm when it came to searching for more members to join his team as he was approached by none other than Kikainoid Gaon! Just as he forgets about the mushrooms, he drives his fangs into the Tojitendo. The fate of these cute and delicious mushrooms can't end like this.

Elements/Homages to Super Sentai
- The appearance of the Goggle V and the Hurricaneger Sentai Gears are references of their respective villains' usage of machine giants for the giant fights.
- Deathdark used the Kongs, which were mostly exact mecha clones of the MotW used to assist the Mozoo of the episode.
- The Mechanin Corp under Fifth Spear, Sargain in Jakanja used Copy Giant mecha to absorb the essence of a monster to become its' giant similar to the Kudaitests.
- Goggle V aired in 1982 and Hurricaneger aired in 2002 was exactly 20 years apart.
- Several homages of Doubutsu Sentai Zyuohger were made in this episode.
- Mushroom World's attributes are likely homages of the man-hunting and video game theme of Deathgaliens,such as spreading poisonous spores and mushroom for referencing the Super Mario video game series.
- The Google V's ribbon makeshift skipping rope pays homage to Saguil Brothers' double skipping rope.
- Mushroom World and Ijirude observing humans with scopes on the rooftop of a white building is the exact same thing of what Hunterji did in Ep. 15: The Shiver-Raising Sniper.
- Gaon's curiosity to the Human World can be comparable to the Zyumans in Ep. 2: Don’t Underestimate this Planet.
- Gaon commenting about humans being adorable pays homage to Leo's first line in Ep. 13: The Summit of Witnesses.
- Gaon resolving under the crisis of humans caused by mushroom spores is similar to the Zyuohgers witnessing the disaster cause by Deathgaliens in Zyuohger's premiere episode.
- Each Hurricaneger that goes to one of the Zenkaiger after the Hurricaneger Gear was used shows a reference in some way.
- Hurricane Red to Zenkaizer - this is an obvious reference to the fact that both are the leaders of their respective teams.
- Hurricane Yellow to Zenkai Juran - This might be a reference to Scroll 29: Lingering Summer Heat and The Stamp referencing Yousuke and Kouta's fight over which one of them should be leader.
- Hurricane Blue to Zenkai Gaon - This might be a reference to blue and yellow being gender interchangeable colors between each other in the franchise.
- Juran and Goan used their respective colors from their predecessors,while Zenkaiser used the blue color from Hurricane Blue.
- The three present Zenkaigers using Hurricaneger Sentai Gear is a tribute to Hurricanegers' team up movies: Gaoranger and Abaranger.
- Goggle-V was the first Sentai where all of the monsters are animal based by way of the Mozoo; all villain groups from Gorenger through Sun Vulcan had varied monsters without any specific theme, thus making it the first pure "theme" of such in the franchise on the villain side.
- Juran Tyranno and Gaon Lion accidentally smooch each other pays homage to what AkaNinger and KiNinger did under Yokai Buruburu's Heavy Acceleration in Shuriken Sentai Ninninger Vs. Kamen Rider Drive Spring Vacation Combining Special.

- As part of Super Hero Time, this episode aired alongside Kamen Rider Saber episode 26, Chapter 26: Deep Darkness, With a Sword.
- This episode reveals that a Legend Sentai power can be used by multiple Zenkaigers, even though only one Zenkaiger is required to activate its Sentai Gear.
- Gaon fires at a Kudakk before transforming is a throwback to what Juran did in the previous episode, which Juran himself remarked about.
- Like Juran's winking in the last episode, computer animation was used when Gaon squints his eyes at the rage of Tojitendo's heartless behavior.
- This is the first episode to features two Legend Sentai Gears that were used by one Zenkaiger.
