- Lupin Red attach the X Train Thunder into the VS Changer and turns it upward like when he use a Dial Fighter, instead of downward, despite the VS Changer played the guttural voice that occurs when Trigger Machines are placed. This becomes a habit for the other rangers when they used X Trains later on
- The reason for this to happen might be due to the length of X Train Thunder and when put downwards, it will made the user feel a bit uncomfortable to press the trigger on VS Changer because their index finger will involuntarily touch the back of this VS Vehicle repeatedly.
