* ShoutOut: [[Film/IronMan The bad guys kidnap a tech genius and force him to build something for them, only for him to secretly build a weapon for himself.]] It's quite fitting that this episode came out just after the release of ''Film/AvengersEndgame''.


** Ravi losing his girlfriend to something terrible, with the prospect of getting her back turning into motivation, actually mirrors some second-banana heroes from across toku, like [[Series/KamenRiderRyuki Kamen Rider Knight]], [[Series/KamenRiderExAid Kamen Rider Brave]] and [[Series/KaitouSentaiLupinrangerVsKeisatsuSentaiPatranger LupinBlue.]]
* OffTheShelfFX: The ''Go-Busters'' toys are used for the Beast-X Morphers-- and since the Morphin Brace had no key gimmick, the Rangers' Morph-X Keys are seen to turn from solid to holographic as they hit the button on the side (a set of proper keyholes replace the button for the as-yet unreleased Hasbro toy).

* TransformationTrinket: For the first time in over a decade, the main team uses a SuperWristGadget as their main transformation tool;[[note]]The last time the starting Rangers used one was in ''Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder''; ''Jungle Fury'' and ''R.P.M.'' only used them for Additional Rangers beyond the initial trio, and ''S.P.D.'', ''Operation Overdrive'' and ''Dino Charge'' had them for Sixth or Extra Rangers[[/note]] they also require the U.S. exclusive Morph-X Keys to activate. If the series keeps with ''Go-Busters'', then Gold and Silver instead use a cellphone/gun hybrid.

** Having potential Ranger cadets forcibly turned evil (at least visually) at the start of the show was actually the premise of ''Series/ChoujuuSentaiLiveman'' (notably the first time they did a three-man lineup with later additions, just like ''Go-Busters'').
