  • Divatox was now played by a different actress, and her costume now showed much less cleavage; her personality also seemed to change, from goofy and hysterical to cool and calculating. (00:08)
  • The water dial in Tommy’s racecar was crooked. (03:15)
  • The Subcraft’s cockpit appearance drastically different from that of “Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie”. (06:29)
  • Teleporting to Earth as a green energy streak, the subcraft approached the north Atlantic, but it would eventually end up in Angel Grove. (06:56)
  • After the subcraft had arrived on Earth, Elgar was holding a chain connected to a pulley in the ceiling, which then tied around Porto, nearby, as two Piranhatron shoved him upright; Divatox told Porto to get back to work. (08:54)
  • The flashback from “Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie” ran scenes out of order. The scenes are listed below, in the order that they aired, though numbered in the correct way.

  • Before the Turbozords raced through the desert, Adam was shown tightening his shoulder straps, but this hadn’t appeared in “Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie”. (09:29)
  • A close-up of Katherine shifting the shorter lever in Wind Chaser (before the Turbozords had raced out from the dust cloud) hadn’t been in “Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie”. (09:30)
  • The Turbozords were shown racing out from four Ranger-colored explosions of smoke in the desert, but these smoke explosions hadn’t been in “Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie”. (09:30)
  • Around the time Tommy would have been discovering the Ghost Galleon, Katherine shrieked at a skeleton on the dock, but this hadn’t been in “Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie”. (10:00)
  • When Divatox was shown laughing after the galleon had exploded, it was actually a shot of her panicking when she realized (at an earlier point) that the subcraft was taking on water. (10:14)
  • When the four teens arrived at a beach with Lerigot, it was daytime, yet in “Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie”, it had been in the dim light of early morning; the shot of the warriors on waverunners, however, was dimmed as it had been in “Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie”. (10:20)
  • As the Rangers prepared to rush into the temple, Tommy told the Rangers, “Okay, guys, this is it,” but in “Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie”, his original line had been, “All right, guys, this is it,” and it had been uttered moments earlier than was now shown. (10:44)
  • When the Rangers prepared to activate the Turbozords’ growth to Zord size, their dialogue was totally different from what they’d said in “Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie”. (11:09)
  • Zordon’s image was back to its “Power Rangers Zeo” appearance (bluish-green with mild vertical streaks), but so were the tube and the wall behind it. (12:47)
  • Skull said “this is a whole lot more exciting than doing parking ticket.” (13:24)
  • It is unknown why Porto and Elgar didn’t just teleport to the center of the Energy Center where the detonator had to be activated. (13:32)
  • When Elgar started the detonator, it initially read “59:60”. (15:32)
  • Elgar wondered out loud how to get out of the Energy Center, but after being defeated by the Rangers in “Shift Into Turbo, Part II”, he merely teleported out. (15:42)
