Trivia: Engine Sentai Go-onger
  • Actor Allusion: or in this case, Voict Actor Allusion, as the voice of Carrigator also voiced the comic relief crocodilian monster Yatsudenwani from Bakuryuu Sentai Abaranger.
  • Fan Nickname: Gunpei is "Forehead", thanks to a rather unfortunate close-up in the ending sequence.
    • Kegalesia is "Piper" thanks to her costume and her actress's history as an "AV" (Adult Video) performer.
  • Fandom Nod: Gunpei was the subject of much mockery among internet fans in Japan. The show incorporated this into an episode where Gunpei worries about being the least popular hero in internet polls.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!
  • Hey, It's That Voice!
  • Name's the Same
  • Playing Gertrude: Though Gunpei is supposed to be older than Sosuke, Renn, and Saki (he even refers to himself as a man and belittles the others as being "just kids" when he steals the Engine Souls in an effort to become a Go-onger), his actor is actually younger than those of Sosuke and Renn.
    • However, he is indeed several years older than Saki's actress, who was, at at the time, definitely "just a kid" at 16 years of age.
  • Talking to Himself: Yogostein and his father are voiced by the same actor.
  • Too Soon: Shortly after the Go-on Wings' debut, some guy committed a murder using a dagger. As a result, the toy version of the Rocket Dagger was called Rocket Booster, and the show avoided using the word dagger for a while (as a result, the Wings would avoid calling some of their attacks).
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: Toripter, due to being voiced by a woman. #38 gave us the final answer to his gender.
