Other

  • The ending of almost every episode, starting with episode 4, had a 30-second tribute to a Super Sentai crew of years past - and then went on to make special mentions of firsts in the franchise, such as the most notable Sixth Ranger characters in addition to the first. It ended with Juken Sentai Gekiranger, the next season, as the last segment.
  • The title might be a shout-out to the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers theme song, "Go Go Power Rangers".
  • Of note, one of the series whose mecha got no 'enemy representative' is Goggle V. However, Boukenger still gives them a Shout-Out in form of any of their mecha's completion quote, "(insert mecha name here), Gattai Kanryou (Combination Complete)!"
  • The arc where Natsuki's origins are revealed contains plenty of connections to previous yellows. First off, she's the princess of Lemuria, which is the civilization represented by Goggle Yellow. And her parents? Kirin Ranger and Mega Yellow. And aside of that, she also has more similarities with other Yellows, she's a Big Eater like Kiranger and Vul Panther and uses a bulldozer for her combiner vehicle like Yellow Racer.
