  • When activating the Ninja Fusion Zord, Levi did not use the Ninja Fusion Star, but rather his Storm Star.
  • When Cosmo explains to Speedwing and Wolvermean that Sarah took the Speed Star, his voice is amplified as if he is speaking on stage or into his microphone, but he is not.
  • Despite the Speed Star getting stuck to Speedwing's back, the Rangers somehow surpassed him on foot while he was running at max speed. This is due to Sentai related footage where the Ninningers had spent their time unmorphed training to be as fast as Hayabusa was.
  • Despite fighting Speedwing with the Ninja Fusion Zord, the Ninja Steel Megazord makes a brief appearance during the fight immediately before Sarah says "let's pluck this chicken." 
  • When Brody changes into his Lion Fire Mode, the rest of the Rangers join him in his Lion Fire catchphrase.
  • When Cosmo gigantifies Speedwing, the Gigantify Laser is instead replaced with the gas sent down to release Skullgators.
  • Victor and Monty came back from Africa without an explanation.
  • When the Rangers finished off Speedwing, no slashing sound was heard which makes the scene awkward.
  • When the officials activate Victor's hoverboard, Victor starts running, but in the next scene he is starting to run again.
    • Also when he takes off running he heads towards the wall, but moments later he just runs straight across the track.
