- 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.
- This episode first aired in Latin America on 28th August 2012.
- This is the first episode where there are 3 female colors in one episode: Red, Yellow and Pink. Instead of a crossover episode, it's all in a single series. This was because Jayden temporary left the team in the previous episode.
- When the camera zooms in on Lauren's morpher, the entire symbol portion of the morphing screen is upside down.
- As Jayden and Mentor Jii are falling off the cliff, "Jii" 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.
