** Yumeria's costume from the end of #7 is pretty much a Music/{{Vocaloid}}, with a ''samurai'' helmet just because.

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Mitsuki was replaced by Luna in Season 2, due to scheduling conflicts on Kyoko Hinami's part (she was shooting a movie at the same time as Akiba S2).

** Lampshaded and averted in episode 9. When a character sees Takuma Tsuzuki for the first time, they instantly assume that it's Manpei Takagi, the actor who played GekiBlue, playing himself. The rest of the cast points out that the idea is ludicrous because they're clearly not the same guy. (Takuma is actually played by Manpei's real-life twin brother Shinpei Takagi)
** Yukio Yamagata and [=MoJo=], who (along with Creator/HalkoMomoi) sing Season 2's OP, are summoned by Malashina in 2-2

* {{Robosexual}}: Nobuo has a fetish for gynoids stemming from a childhood crush on [[Series/ChoujuuSentaiLiveman Colon]]. Hence why he is so infatuated with Aoi (who would be a cyborg by definition) [[spoiler:and another reason why he cannot properly fight the MonsterOfTheWeek of 2-6, a RobotGirl with a '''''very''''' {{Moe}} look]].



* SailorEarth: In season 2, General Tsu's monsters are designed in the style of previous official Sentai series monsters, even following their ThemeNaming. Also, the Deluded Rangers that appear follow the motif of WhatCouldHaveBeen (What if Dairanger ''was'' Chinaman, and what if the Gouraiger were still evil and had themselves a third member), save for the Powerful Rangers.

* WhatAPieceOfJunk: The Machine [[{{Itasha}} Itasshar]] is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin; a normal two-door sedan (Specifically a Prius) with a garish ''Z-Cune Aoi'' paintjob. This is the team's TransformingMecha.

Added DiffLines:

* CherryTapping: The soda can trick from the SelfDisposingVillain trope is also used in the season 2 opener's retcon - except, this time, it somehow hits Malshina over the head inside the cockpit, then lands on a self-destruct button.


Added DiffLines:

** Also, the Machine Itashar has the Akibaranger logo replacing the Toyota logo on the front and back.

* ExecutiveMeddling: [[spoiler:InUniverse, it becomes a major plot point as of episode as of #11, when it turns out that the characters realise they'e in a TV show and that it's actively being rewritten by a [[ToeiCompany Toei]] executive. Nobuo is able to sense and even predict this to a degree.]]



* {{Fanservice}}: Mostly provided by the main villainess' costume, which is more [[Series/SeijuuSentaiGingaman Shelinda]]-y than [[Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger Insarn]]-y.

* ActingForTwo: Episode 9 reveals that [[spoiler:Hiroyo is Aoi's voice actress, which means in real life, the actress who plays Hiroyo has two roles in the show]].
** Ryuuji Sainei plays both himself and his character from ''Series/TokusouSentaiDekaranger''.



** In #10 of season 2, after having made a brief cameo in season 1, Creator/HalkoMomoi (who also sings the show's theme song) appears, this time explicitly as herself.

* CastingGag. Koichi Sakamoto as George Spielburton in 2-5. Sakamoto was the stunt director on Franchise/PowerRangers from 1993-2009. No wonder George likes Powerful Rangers so much.



* DeathIsCheap: At the end of Episode #2-12, the Akibas make a [[spoiler: HeroicSacrifice to prevent an alien invasion. (Which in itself is out of place; see Your Mind Makes It Real) This means that they were DeadAllAlong during the RecapEpisode that follows.]] Ghost!Nobuo lampshades the cheapness of [[spoiler: the Rangers' death]] by outright acknowledging that [[spoiler: Hatte Saburo can bring them back to life if they are never needed again.]]

* ExiledFromContinuity: With the exception of the "Episode 14" stage show which featured ''Shinkenger'' and ''Goseiger'' (along with ''Go-onger''), the four most recent Sentai series as of the beginning of each season are never directly shown, with only a few minor references included, rather than specifically calling out their plots and characters (with the exception of [=AkaRed=], who has appeared (though not as part of the story) in his ''Gokaiger'' appearance rather than that from ''Boukenger'')- presumably this is to avoid catching the attention of younger kids. This also applies to ''Goranger'' and ''JAKQ'', which some have speculated is meant to avoid having to credit ShotaroIshinomori or deal with his involvement- but again, there have been a few minor references to those shows.
** Towards the end of Season 2, while not mentioned by name, Kyoryuger was given at least two nods.

* {{Kawaisa}}: Utterly spoofed in 2-6 with Yuruchara Jigen, who plays this card ''so much'' that Akiba Red can't bring himself to fight her. It's even lampshaded by General Tsu when he points out that, by making this her true appearance rather than a disguise for a hideous creature, the heroes would be unable to fight back.

** The series finale is also one, covering both seasons.



** Also, in the episode where Mitsuki trains with Niibori, and the ''good guys'' initiate the TrappedInTVLand plot, she strikes a good distance from the monster and does damage, because 'whatever the camera captures is reality.' We then switch to another camera and see that it ''really'' looks like she was hitting him from that angle.

* HonestAxe: 2-10 plays a variation with a plastic spatula or a golden spatula (a very obvious setup for General Tsu's variation of the Alpaca brothers). [[WhatAnIdiot Luna chooses the golden one without batting an eyelid.]]
