  • Billy came in through the same entrance at the Youth Center that Zack and Jason left through, so he should have seen them and joined in the Putty fight. (06:54)
  • Kimberly and Trini did not react to the deactivated Alpha 5, clearly in the range of their vision, until Zordon mentioned him. (10:06)
  • The Rangers easily teleported into the Dark Dimension, when previous times it was impossible or required a special device. (11:11)
  • When Billy, under Rita’s spell, took the Dragon Dagger to Goldar in the Dark Dimension, the captured parents weren’t there. (11:12)
  • The Dragonzord summons was briefly repeated halfway through the second playing. (13:53)
  • The Mastodon was shown connecting to the Tyrannosaurus for the Tank Mode formation and its legs converting to the Megazord’s fists during the Megazord sequence but then later shown again attaching before the Megazord stood up. (15:28)
  • The Megazord was holding the Power Sword when it fell onto the building, but it wasn’t holding it in the previous or following shot. (16:07)
