  • During “Last time on Power Rangers...”, the announcer referred to the Ninja Tournament Finals at the Youth Center as being “at Angel Grove High”.
  • Billy wore his old glasses with the thick silver frames. (01:04)
  • Shown only from behind at the Command Center, Jason was skinnier (and possibly taller) than usual. (01:04)
  • Alpha 5 referred to the “Cave of Despair” as the “Dimension of Despair”. (01:21)
  • Tommy wore old green clothes rather than white clothes. (02:30)
  • Yellow Ranger’s voice didn’t sound like Trini. (03:50)
  • Black Ranger’s voice didn’t sound like Zack. (03:52)
  • The Red, Yellow, and Black Rangers flew over a thick cloud layer, but Red Ranger was somehow able to see through the clouds to spot Terror Blossom in the park. (04:00)
  • Red Ranger’s voice didn’t sound like Jason. (04:07)
  • Hatchasaurus’ voice was different in this encounter. (05:32)
  • Hatchasaurus seemed to just be standing there, watching as the Rangers made short work of the Putties. (06:21)
  • When Zedd summoned his grow bomb to throw to Earth, Goldar’s head jerked in a jump-cut as the bomb appeared. (06:41)
  • When the Thunderzords arrived after being summoned, each Dinozord was first shown transforming into its respective Thunderzord in the mountains. (07:10)
  • Giant Hatchasaurus got up from beneath the ground near the power plant. (09:21)
  • Zordon told White Ranger to destroy Cardiatron, but Tommy hadn’t been a Ranger when the others had first fought Cardiatron and wouldn’t have been familiar with it. (10:41)
  • Giant Hatchasaurus alternated repeatedly between having horns and not having horns. (11:16)
  • It seemed as though White Ranger soon returned to the Tigerzord, as though he’d left to destroy Cardiatron as instructed; however, shortly before, Zedd used energy from his staff to help giant Hatchasaurus reassemble itself and Cardiatron could be seen hovering in the air as the Hatchasaurus was rebuilt around it. (11:28)
  • While Hatchasaurus electrocuted the Thunder Megazord with it’s horns, the Original Megazord was clearly shown in the blast. (13:26)
  • The Dino Megazord’s hand was shown picking up the Power Sword before the Thunder Megazord was shown wielding the Thunder Saber. (14:51)
  • After the battle with Hatchasaurus, Cardiatron was never shown to be destroyed. (15:33)
  • Zordon referred to the “Cave of Despair” as the “Dimension of Despair”. (15:49)
  • After Tommy had chosen to save the frozen Jason, Trini, and Zack from Terror Blossom rather than the kidnapped Rocky, Adam, and Aisha from the Serpent of Darkness, Tommy and Kimberly merely waited in the Command Center as Billy and Alpha tried to revive the three frozen Rangers, while they could have been saving the three Stone Canyon teens at the time. (18:54)
