- - Hatte Saburo, also read as Yatsude Saburo, is a collective penname for Toei's executive producers, used when contributing to Toei's tokusatsu series. This name has appeared throughout the entirety of the Super Sentai franchise, and also on other works such as Metal Heroes. Incidentally, the reading "Hatte Saburo" has been used on Power Rangers' production credits since 2003, and "Yatsude Saburo" on the years before then. (Thanks to Magenta and Kou for the info)
- The kanji for Hatte can be literally read as "eight hands", a detail you can see on the design for Boomerang Titan.
- - Usagi Mio is played by Nagano Julia, who also portrayed this character on Ryuta Tasaki's "Salvage Mice". Mio's uniform here is the same as in the movie.
- In the movie, Mio performs the same martial arts kata as seen on this episode, Chatanyara Kushanku. The scene in the episode is filmed to resemble the same scene on the movie, with the added leg snapping sound at the end. You can see a sharper version of this kata here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-CcRRswlG5g
- (Thanks to Sailor Otaku for the tidbit)
- - The fateful battle referred by Akagi is probably episode 45 of Gekiranger, "Pikin! Showdown of Destiny", where long-time rivals Jan/GekiRed and Black Lion Rio have their 'destined battle' before the events of the finale. Akiba Red parodies both Jan and Rio's roll calls during this sequence.
- - Yumeria talks on her rolecall about the second cour of a regular Sentai show, which is often where the main team gets their powerups.
- - The scene where Delu-Knight damages his chest with his sword is a parody of episode 28 of Gokaiger. The enemy on this episode, bounty hunter Kiaido, taunts Gokai Red by damaging his own chest in the same way as Delu-Knight does in this scene.
