  • In the flash of white light after Jason’s morph was a single frame of a Zyuranger morph. (10:16)
  • The morphing order was, “Mastodon,” “Pterodactyl,” “Sabertoothed Tiger,” and “Triceratops;” this placed Trini’s and Billy’s morphs in the wrong order. (11:07)
  • Pink Ranger mysteriously rushed a little girl away from the Rangers’ fight with Goldar and Scorpina. (13:08)
  • Yellow Ranger was oddly missing during the latter part of the fight with Goldar and Scorpina. (13:18)
  • After Scorpina and Goldar blasted the Rangers, a green tentacle was visible striking the Rangers. (13:41)
  • Octoplant was shook by an unexplained rumbling. (15:49)
  • When Red Ranger removed his Power Coin, his Power Morpher had “Zyuranger” on it. (15:53)
  • After the Megazord was formed, it had one hand palm-up as if it were carrying something. (16:13)
  • The seating positions of the Rangers in the Megazord cockpit was wrong in one shot. (16:24)
  • When Jason summoned the Megazord’s Power Sword, he called for the “Mega Sword”. (17:07)
  • A blue crash pad can be seen behind Mr. Kaplan as he falls. (19:12)
