Legendary Ranger Modes

- Super Megaforce Green - Jungle Fury Wolf Ranger
- Super Megaforce Pink - Jungle Fury Rhino Ranger (female version)
- Both Legendary Ranger teams involved seasons that possess both a lion and a tiger.
- Megaforce itself also has both - Gia's animal is the tiger and Robo Knight's is the lion.
- The Wild Force change in this episode involves rangers whose animals are connected to the elements of air, water, and land.
Elements/Homages to Jungle Fury
- The Air/Water/Land mode by Troy, Noah and Gia is representative of the air/water/land concepts utilized in the first half of the series, both in the three training masters (and their subsequent Spirit Ranger counterparts) of the Jungle Fury Rangers (Bat, Shark, Elephant) and in the three Overlords who are major villains of the first half (Hawk, Jellyfish, Grizzly Bear).
- The splitting of the Mega Rangers into two groups for most of the episode has significance connected to Jungle Fury:
- Having Troy, Noah and Gia on their own emphasizes the concept of the main trio which is the core of the main Jungle Fury team; while the joining of Jake and Emma by the end show the addition of the two team-members (Jungle Fury Wolf Ranger and Jungle Fury Rhino Ranger) in the second half to support the team.
- Coincidentally, The two animals "awoken" in Emma and Jake were technically those associated with major notable villains within Jungle Fury:
- Casey appears to have learned Camille's Chameleon technique, as seen when he fades away at the end of the episode.
- Jake refers to RJ's powers as Purple Wolf. In Jungle Fury, it was always called Jungle Fury Wolf Ranger, without reference to the color.
- In the italian dubbing this error is corrected as the Jake refers to himself as Wolf Ranger.
- When Emma and Jake take in hand the Ranger Key Wolf Ranger and Rhino Ranger, you can see that the arms of the keys are raised, while in the next scene the arms of the keys are lowered.
- Troy refers to the charged attack that the Rangers use as the Jungle Fury Rangers as the Jungle Fury Claw Booster. The Claw Boosters were actually the devices the main Jungle Fury Rangers used to enter Jungle Master Mode and/or combine with the Jungle Fury Rhino Ranger's Rhino Morpher to create the Jungle Blade. Troy should've instead referred to it as the Battle Claw.
- This episode marks the first crossover in any form between Jungle Fury and another Power Rangers series, given that it neither participated in nor had a team-up episode.
- This is the only time the Legends between the Gokaiger and Super Megaforce episode are exactly the corresponding Ranger in the episode of the tribute (Casey is Jan Kandou's equivalent) and the only time matching legends appear outside the finale (while equivalents of Ryouma and Matsuri Tatsumi both appear, both are in the final episode and not the equivalent episode)
- A flashback of Casey defeating the Rinshi Mantor in Welcome to the Jungle: Part 2 is shown when he reveals to Jake and Emma that he is the Jungle Fury Red Ranger.
- Gokai Red, Blue, and Yellow's change into the unadapted Sentai Sun Vulcan from the original Gokaiger episode is omitted. Thus, a new shot of the Super Mega Rangers morphing into Legendary Ranger Mode Jungle Fury is filmed, as the three Gokaigers were still Sun Vulcan when they transformed into the Gekirangers in the original episode.
- As of this episode, Jake is the only Ranger who has met and talked to both Legendary Rangers who made an appearance so far.
- Conversely, Gia is the only Ranger who hasn't meet either of the Legendary Rangers that have appeared.
- The pose Emma does this episode is the same pose as the one done by Shoji of the Heavenly Gravity Star/TenmaRanger of Gosei Sentai Dairanger.
