* TheMerch: Averted, which initially seems surprising, but makes sense considering the nature of the show[[note]]Low budget, different target audience and it's also not an "official" Sentai series.[[/note]]. That said, merchandising does exist, but it is limited to collector-oriented pieces like Toys/SHFiguarts.
** The pieces of the Akibarangers' season 1 team cannon are packaged with the Figuarts of their corresponding official ranger, and the pieces of their season 2 bazooka come with the season 2 versions of Akiba Blue and Akiba Yellow.

*** The third appearance by official sentai members involves General Pain turning the [[Series/NinpuuSentaiHurricaneger Gouraigers]] evil and giving them a third member: a female yellow. Pain later explains that his motivation for doing this was due to WhatCouldHaveBeen, specifically that the Gouraigers were originally intended to be the Hurricanegers' enemies, and that they were going to have a third member. Some text then pops up on the screen telling the audience that "This is merely General Pain's delusion. Do not take it as fact". You would think that means that the writers simply made up the WhatCouldHaveBeen stuff for the sake of the episode, but that's not entirely true. Believe it or not, there ''were'' originally plans for a female yellow Gouraiger... in the [[Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm Power Rangers Adaptation]]!
*** On top of that, there were wishes for the Thunder Rangers to be the Wind Rangers' rivals longer than they were; sentai footage of them being bad guys for only a short time forced them to do differently. He really ''is'' describing WhatCouldHaveBeen in ''Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm'' rather than ''Hurricanger.''
*** Interestingly, this means that all three appearances by official sentai members in season 2 contain Franchise/PowerRangers references.

to go work for the Pentagon may be a reference to ''Series/BattleFeverJ'', where Diane left the team to return to the FBI.

* EyeCatch: The eyecatch seems to vary per episode. Generally they involve the live actors or morphed Rangers ([[AndZoidberg and maybe Hakase]]) messing around in the same black smoke-filled stage, and some involve running off to the left. So far, not a single eyecatch was reused.

** In #7, the Akibarangers "combine their powers" in Machine Itasha and enter a yellow-on-black grid world to chase down--then fight--the MOTW. This place resembles the "dimension" several past robos entered either when forming, or performing a FinishingMove.
