- This episode was written by Bruce Kalish, one of the executive producers of Power Rangers S.P.D.
- The Black Ranger had control of the Stegazord in this episode. Although the White Ranger clone seems to use it most of the time. There seems to be a power struggle going on. It probably helps that the White Ranger clone wasn't around.
- I don't understand why the volcano appears to be floating in the sky. I know it's Sentai footage, but I don't think it made any sense in Abaranger either.
