*{{Defictionalization}}: In a sense- while the series' primary depiction of VR obviously ain't gonna happen, the VR headsets they used have become the current wave of VR technology, what with Oculous Rift, Google Cardboard, [=PlayStation=] VR, and even View-Master VR.

* TheOtherMarty: Jason David Frank was originally set to play Adam Steele in the unaired ''Cybertron'' pilot. A second pilot was also made which featured Professor Hart being played by a Caucasian. Brad Hawkins was cast as Rocky the White Ranger on Power Rangers. Saban realized that replacing Frank on Power Rangers was too risky so Frank returned to Power Rangers as Tommy in the role of the White Ranger and Hawkins stepped into the role renamed Ryan Steele. The name Rocky ended up being reused for for the second Red Ranger on Power Rangers.

** The ''Cybertron'' pilot also shows that the series was originally intended to be a stand-alone adaptation of ''Metalder'', with Tao as his ally. It was only after Jason David Frank was replaced by Brad Hawkins that the series was revamped into a team show and the ''Spielban'' footage was brought in for the two additional main characters (since Metalder was a lone hero, whereas Spielban had a costumed female sidekick). By that point, Saban was also using footage from two different ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' series for ''MMPR'' (''Zyuranger'' and ''Dairanger''). Not only that, but Hsbro nearly sued them over the use of the name "Cybertron", which is the name of the ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' home planet.
