- As of this episode, Ishimori Production Inc is added to the creator credit with Haim Saban and Toei Company Ltd, despite the fact that Ishimori was only involved in Gorenger, JAKQ, and Gokaiger (due to the appearances of the Gorenger and JAKQ suits) with no involvement with Goseiger or Power Rangers. There are several possibilities for this, all due to legal technicalities:
- While Ishimori Productions was not involved with Goseiger, that doesn't erase the fact that Gokaiger footage had been used several times by this point. It is likely that part of the deal for Ishimori Productions's involvement in Gokaiger is for credit in all dubs and adaptations (ie, Power Rangers)
- Despite the producers' efforts, there are brief glimpses of the Gorenger and JAKQ suits. While it doesn't amount to much, it's likely enough from a legal standpoint to justify Ishimori Productions's credit.
- As for why Ishimori Productions was not credited until this episode, it is possibly an oversight on one of the companies' part (Ishimori Productions not realizing Gokaiger footage would be used in a Goseiger adaptation or Saban thinking they only had to credit Ishimori Productions for the predominately Gokaiger episodes).
- First morph of the rangers without saying "Go Go Megaforce!"
- This is the second time the real life New Zealand theme park Rainbow's End is used in Power Rangers. It first appeared as itself in Samurai, but here appears to be used to represent a generic theme park to fit in with the Sentai footage.
- This episode features Gia's action shot from the opening credits.
- While Vrak's plan to capture and reprogram Robo Knight fails in this episode, he succeeds 29 episodes later.
- At the same time, Vrak would also quote the episode's title upon doing so.
- Epic 19: Gosei Knight Will Not Allow It - Super Sentai counterpart in Goseiger. See comparison page. (fight footage & story)
