("Ancient Awakening")


Bloopers and Continuity ErrorsEdit

  • At the end when Danny is reading the note to himself he says "Kendall, seeing you again I realized I really really missed you" but after that when Kendall finds the note and reads it it says "Kendall, seeing you again I realized how much I really really loved you"
  • When Max's Growl Phone rings, he opens it and the display reads "Gao Black" with a "2" and the Bison logo. However the name Gao Black was the name for the Black Wild Force Ranger in the Sentai series GaoRanger. This term was never used on Wild Force, instead being the Iron Bison or just Black Wild Force Ranger.
