The episode opens showing three Beyblade teams (Wild Fang, Wang Hu Zhong, and GanGan Galaxy). In all we see 12 bladers, but when seeing them in a line in front of Ryo there are only 11 bladers, as Chi-yun Li is missing from the line.
I don't know if this would be trivia or an allusion, but Kai gets the last line in the show. He also got the last line of the first episode of the show, so, did it come around full circle? If it did, go Kai!
Another careless edit by Nelvana! It was during the scene where Garland and Hiro both confront a frustrated Boris. Garland tries to tell Boris that he, his teammates, and the GRevolutions all battled to give the audience a good show, but Boris snaps at him and threw paper in his face. Now, that part was cut out, but in a later scene, you see paper on the floor!
A careless edit on Nelvana's part. See, when Garland goes to use what he called his "final attack," Tyson manages to take it, and the two exchange a struggle of words. But, originally, while we see Dragoon MS take Apollon's strike, there was a scene where Tyson takes a direct blow from Garland's punch in his face. Now, that scene was edited out, but the red mark it left behind on Tyson's cheek remained!
While Kai was in that warehouse trying to get control of Dranzer MS, there was a bad scene edit here. After he failed again before Romero came in, Kai knelt down to the ground, and Nelvana cut the part where he punches the floor. However, they didn't cut out the part when you SEE Kai ATTEMPTING to punch the floor.
Animation goof! During the scene where Daichi tries to call Ming Ming out, saying that she just sings and is no real Beyblader, instead of GREEN eyes, Daichi briefly had RED eyes!
(This might not be a goof. In real life, peoples' eyes sometimes change color. If they get angry or intense, their eyes sometimes go to red. This change of eye color for Daichi might be intentional.)
When Kai's beyblade was destroyed by Brooklyn, the whole blade was destroyed including the bit chip that had Dranzer in it. Which would mean that it was impossible for Kenny to make the Hard Metal Dranzer Blade with Dranzer on it when Dranzer was with Kai at the time (since Kenny said he made it when he made the other blades), and then Kai's blade was destroyed when Brooklyn beat him. (Reply: The bit chips on the Hard Metal blades are different, smaller bit chips than that of the regular blades so all Kenny had to do was make the beyblade.)
Even though the part where blood drips from Kai's lip is cut out, when the Bladebreakers are reacting to the match on TV, you can see, clear as a bell, Kai with blood dripping from his lip.
In the ending of this episode when all the bladebreakers have their blades spin together Daichi's bit chip does not have Strata Dragoons photo on it.
One of the girls says that, with the way they're battling, they might be able to fill all the spots on the team. However, there are only four girls (since we saw earlier that Hilary can't Beyblade), and five spots on the team.
( They might be including Tyson in this since he was the one who made the challange with Boris in the first place. If that's the case, it would be five.)
Michael says they have all beat Tala sometime or other. That is not true, the only people who ever defeated Tala are Tyson, Daichi, Rick, and Garland.
how did hilary fing them all
Tyson's new attack debuts in this episode and it was accidentally called "Turbo Galaxy Twister" in this episode, but in all other episodes that Tyson uses this attack, it turns back to its true name, "Galaxy Turbo Twister."
At the beginning of the episode, Brad and A.J. refer to the Blitzkreig Boys by their old team name, the Demolition Boys.
When Raul performs his special attack, the part where fire circles around him was cut out in this episode. But when you see a flashback of this attack in "Familiar Faces," this scene was left back in.
Despite Daichi's new blade being called "Strata Dragoon Great," when you see a close up of the blade, you can see "Gaia Dragoon" written all over it, plain as day.
When Daichi is talking to Tyson, he asked him why he didn't bring him a grape soda. But when Tyson and Ray are drinking the soda, they clearly have a cherry symbol on them.
During Lee's flashback to his battle agaisnt Miguel it showed that his beyblade was not using an engine gear.
After Tala uses his "Novae Rog" attack on Kenny's Hopper and destroyed it, we see everyone's reaction. When we see Ray reflect on Kenny's defeat, a gasp that sounds more like Kai came out of his mouth.
