A dumpsite that Trini and Kimberly are petitioning to close down is actually a trap caused by Rita and her minotaur. Also is the debut of Principal Caplan and the Power Weapons.
- Accidental Hug: Bulk and Skull's Ho Yay fans are pleased when the two grab each other when trying to get Kimberly.
- Action Girl: Kimberly and Trini get to show off their stuff away from the boys for the first half of this episode. Trini especially since she fights Goldar herself briefly.
- Adapted Out: Kimberly's call for her Dinozord was unused because in Zyuranger there was a kid of the week in frame that would have confused viewers. This would be repeated in future episodes.
- A Load of Bull: The Mighty Minotaur, especially after growing giant.
- Combat Pragmatist: Kimberly in her Pteradactyl zord blasts at Goldar and some putties while they're human-sized.
- Dean Bitterman and Reasonable Authority Figure: Mr. Caplan shows that he can zigzag between the two in his first appearance.
- Early Installment Weirdness: Bulk and Skull are accompanied by a female punk named Sharkie (unnamed in the final version and played by stuntwoman Stella Angelova). She makes a few more appearances in the early episodes of this season before just vanishing without explanation.
- Gasshole: Bulk belches a little to mock the girls' petition.
- Green Aesop: The first of many in the franchise.
- Innocuously Important Episode: Marks the introduction of the Power Weapons which they use to destroy the Minotaur near the end.
- Silent Antagonist: Aside from a few grunts, the Minotaur does not speak.
- Stock Footage Failure: The kid of the week from Zyuranger as mentioned above, can still be seen in a single wide shot
- Team Spirit: The central theme of the episode besides the Green Aesop. The rangers and weapons coming together at the end is the only thing that saves the day.
