Power Weapons

  • Billy and Zack morph out of order.
  • When Mighty Minotaur grows, Kimberly and Trini can be seen with Hiroshi from the Sentai footage.
  • Trini can be seen holding her weapons already before she is given them.
  • When the Rangers go back into battle against the Minotaur, they are seen holding ordinary grey versions of their Power Weapons before "powering" them up into their standard forms. These are the unmorphed versions of the Zyurangers' individual weapons which did not form a Power Blaster and would show up in "Mighty Morphin' Mutants" as the Mutant Rangers' Power Weapons.
  • The Rangers destroyed Minotaur's mace and shield using their individual weapons. Minotaur has them again as they form the Power Blaster, but is bare-handed when the Rangers fire it.
  • Kimberly is not shown summoning her Zord unlike the other Rangers (due to the footage being unusable due to the presence of a child in the shot).
  • When the Rangers are summoned away by Zordon to the Command Center from the Megazord Battle, the outlines of the Zyurangers can briefly be seen as each Ranger fades to their respective color (this is particularly noticeable with Trini).
  • While Trini is communicating with Jason the Triceratops Power Coin is seen.


  • This is the first appearance of Mr. Caplan and Angel Grove High School.
  • This is the first appearance of the Power Weapons and Power Blaster.
  • Theme song inclusion: when the Rangers are teleporting to their final battle against the Mighty Minotaur.
  • This is the first episode to feature the American actors wearing the five Zyuranger costumes although this is only apparent behind the scenes.
  • This is the first episode with a morphing sequence not featuring the whole team.
  • This is the first appearance of Bulk and Skull's female punk named Sharkie who will make another appearance in "Food Fight" before mysteriously disappearing from the show.
  • This is the only episode in which the Saber Tooth Tiger Dinozord uses its sabers on a monster.
  • When the Rangers teleport back into battle, the color sequence is Black-Pink-Red-Blue-Yellow. It is the same color sequence when first chosen by Zordon in the pilot episode. This is by far the only episode the Rangers communicate with each other when teleporting.
  • This is the first and only episode Zordon speaks through the weapons. He is able to do so in spirit for the Rangers to combat their weapons to make the Power Blaster.
  • This episode was part of a week-long marathon called "Morphin' Wars" on Fox Kids.
