Trivia / Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue

  • Fan Nickname: Demonite, Falkar and Thunderon, Diabolico's final three monsters, are commonly referred to as the Troika Monsters by fans, named after their fused form Troika.
  • Mean Character, Nice Actress: Jennifer Yen (Vypra), according to Sean Cw Johnson.
  • Name's the Same: Dr. Fairweather is named after Zack's crush, Angela.
  • Promoted Fanboy: Rhett Fisher was a fan of Power Rangers that had actually auditioned for the show twice before landing the part of Ryan.
  • Prop Recycling: The first monster the Rangers fight seems to have been Psycho Red's monster form. The monster version of the cobra that Ryan fights to get rid of the cobra tattoo on his back is Snizard from Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers season 1, repainted, sans Zapper Apple, and given a cobra hood.
  • Troubled Production: The teamup episode was plagued with drama, leading Danny Slavin and Amy Miller (Lost Galaxy alums) to literally walk off the set. It was rumored to have something to do with some of the Lost Galaxy actors being unsatisfied with their salary and the fact a subplot featuring a little girl got way more attention than the returning Lost Galaxy characters.
  • What Could Have Been: Rhett Fisher (Ryan/Titanium Ranger) originally auditioned for the role of Carter. Interesting if you think about how, in the show, Carter originally tried to use the Titanium Ranger powers, but couldn't handle it.
    • Toei and PLEX came up with entirely original Zords for the Red and Titanium Rangers, but Saban declined to use them due to the expense. The Red one only appears twice, in the Ground Hog Day Loop episode, and used as a kamikaze ship in the season finale. Both of them exist in toy form though.
    • The whole reason Ryan temporarily left the team is because Saban did not have the budget to his both Sentai footage of the main 5 Rangers AND new footage of all 6 Rangers.
