Trivia / Ninja Sentai Kakuranger

  • Actor Allusion: Ittan Momen from #25 is voiced by Nobuyuki Hiyama, which explains why he's riding a motorcycle and always saying 'baby'!
    • #46 has a Monster of the Week that summons manga characters to battle out heroes. The most fearsome of them is played by Yoshinori Okamoto, veteran suit actor usually in the role of The Dragon (eg. Biohunter Silva), now in a Dragon-esque role to the monster. (This is itself a Call Back to the first couple of episodes, as he also played the Original Kirigakure Saizou. Then joke then becomes Saizou getting his ass kicked by his still-unimpressed ancestor.)
  • Dawson Casting: Slightly inverted. Satomi Hirose, playing Tsuruhime, was not yet 14 when filming began. When Tsuruhime is shown celebrating her birthday onscreen mid-series, her birthday cake can be seen holding 16 candles.
  • Name's the Same: Jiraiya shares his name with a previous Toei hero.
  • Prop Recycling:
    • The costume worn by Youkai Mujina's Amazoness assassin in #46 is a reuse of that worn by Tiger Ranger, Boi, from Zyuranger.
    • One of the various background Yōkai in a few episodes is in fact the Combined Four Deva Kings from Gosei Sentai Dairanger in a different outfit and given a red wash.
  • Real-Life Relative: Jiraiya, played by Kane Kosugi, was the pupil of his father's killer, Gali. In real life, Gali was played by Kosugi's father, Shou.
