  • This episode first aired in Latin America on 28th August 2012.
  • First and only time a Nighlok reaches a third form beyond its natural and mega forms.
  • The opening sequence has been updated to include Lauren in the cutaway shots. However Kimberly Crossman is not credited as a regular cast member. Her credit appears in the closing credits.


  • When the camera zooms in on Lauren's morpher, the entire symbol portion of the morphing screen is upside down.
  • As Jayden and Mentor Ji are falling off the cliff, "Ji" in the close-up shot is actually his Shinkenger counterpart, Hikoma Kusakabe.
  • When Mentor Ji finds Jayden battling Deker the two are shown laying on rocks but when Ji walks over to help Jayden in the very next shot Jayden is on grassy ground. This is because the scene with the rocks was Japanese footage and the grass shot was American and was due likely to the crew being unable to find a good enough location to match the footage. The inconsistencies continue in the scene stated above.
  • When Antonio fight Gigertox alone, at one point, the zipper on the back of his suit can clearly be seen.
  • Antonio is more injured when he returns to the Shiba House, despite not being that injured earlier.
  • When Octoroo energizes Gigertox, his tentacles are covered in gashes.
