  • 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.<table id="taprmrecap"><tr><td>10</td><td>the teens walk into the Turbozord room in the Power Chamber</td></tr><tr><td>12</td><td>the teens drive the Turbozords through the desert</td></tr><tr><td>16</td><td>energy from Lerigot’s Golden Key allows Divatox’s subcraft to pass through the Nemesis Triangle</td></tr><tr><td>11</td><td>the four teens are infused with the Turbo powers</td></tr><tr><td>15</td><td>the Ghost Galleon sails</td></tr><tr><td>13</td><td>Katherine shrieks at a skeleton on the Ghost Galleon’s dock</td></tr><tr><td>18</td><td>the teens join the power of the Turbo Keys as the galleon approaches the Nemesis Triangle</td></tr><tr><td>19</td><td>the galleon explodes</td></tr><tr><td>17</td><td>Divatox laughs</td></tr><tr><td>5</td><td>four Ranger-colored streaks fly over the city at night</td></tr><tr><td>8</td><td>the four teens arrive with Lerigot at a beach in daylight</td></tr><tr><td>6</td><td>chimps peek up from bushes in a jungle</td></tr><tr><td>3</td><td>Piranhatron-like warriors pop up from bushes in a jungle</td></tr><tr><td>2</td><td>a superior warrior’s horse rides through a jungle (with the warrior riding it not shown)</td></tr><tr><td>1</td><td>an arrow strikes a log</td></tr><tr><td>7</td><td>Katherine falls off a cliff wearing her Zeonizers and Tommy dives after her</td></tr><tr><td>4</td><td>golden streaks envelop Lerigot as warriors surround him in a jungle</td></tr><tr><td>9</td><td>warriors ride on waverunners</td></tr><tr><td>20</td><td>the Rangers prepare to surprise the Malachians, Divatox, and crew in the temple as Jason and Kimberly hang over a lava pit</td></tr><tr><td>30</td><td>the Rangers summon weapons</td></tr><tr><td>26</td><td>Maligore’s form starts to rise from lava</td></tr><tr><td>21</td><td>Jason and Kimberly appear on the edge of the lava pit</td></tr><tr><td>22</td><td>Jason fights the helmetless Tommy</td></tr><tr><td>23</td><td>the Liarians purify Kim</td></tr><tr><td>24</td><td>Tommy holds onto Jason’s arm to prevent him from falling into the lava pit</td></tr><tr><td>27</td><td>the Liarians project their energy again</td></tr><tr><td>25</td><td>an explosion comes from the lava pit</td></tr><tr><td>28</td><td>the Rangers (all wearing their helmets) are surprised</td></tr><tr><td>29</td><td>Maligore’s foot stomps on ground with Rygog and Divatox in background</td></tr><tr><td>31</td><td>the Rangers shift levers in Turbozord cockpits</td></tr><tr><td>32</td><td>the Turbozords grow</td></tr><tr><td>33</td><td>the Turbo Megazord assembles</td></tr><tr><td>34</td><td>the Turbo Megazord stands victorious with an explosion behind it</td></tr><tr><td>14</td><td>Justin tells the teens at the dock that he’s the new Blue Ranger</td></tr></table> (09:22)
  • 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 Zeoappearance (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)
