* 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''.



* 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.



* ExecutiveMeddling: [[spoiler: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.]]

* ExecutiveMeddling: [[spoiler:Becomes a major plot point EvilIsSexy: Malshina plays this for all it's worth.
* 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 episode as the beginning of #11, when it turns each season are never directly shown, with only a few minor references included, rather than specifically calling out that the their plots and characters realise they'e (with the exception of [=AkaRed=], who has appeared (though not as part of the story) in a TV show and his ''Gokaiger'' appearance rather than that it's actively being rewritten by a [[ToeiCompany Toei]] executive. Nobuo is able to sense and even predict 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 degree.]]few minor references to those shows.
** Towards the end of Season 2, while not mentioned by name, Kyoryuger was given at least two nods.

** Then again, the Akibaranger helmets are much more uniquely detailed (the anime hair would require a more elaborate molding procedure then the standard ''Super Sentai'' helmets,) the costumes contain full armor instead of just the usual spandex, and instead of the standard rubber costume, the mecha is done in much more costly CGI, so YMMV on this one.
*** That's why the mecha is only used in episodes 2, 7 and 12.
*** Apparently blue and yellow's helmet hair kept breaking off, so they redesigned it for season 2.

** Creator/NaoNagasawa is present in the Hurricaneger episode... but she's instead voicing the MonsterOfTheWeek (Hadezkin) instead of her usual Hurricane Blue, who is taken over by Akiko Nakagawa (otherwise known as [[Series/EngineSentaiGoOnger Bomper]] and [[FreshPrettyCure Inori Yamabuki/Cure Pine]]). Also, along with Creator/TomokazuSeki standing in for BOTH Hurricane Red and Kabutoraiger, Creator/TakeshiKusao is also present standing in for BOTH Hurricane Yellow and Kuwagaraiger (and in the previous two episodes, he took in for Dragon Ranger).
