Continuity and Placement
The earliest the movie can take place is after episode 23 due to both Takayuki Hiba and Amazon Killer appearing for their respective sides and the usage of the second Vulcan Base; it fits best between 24 and 25 due to premiering the same day as 24 and with certain cosmetic changes (such as the new version of Sun Vulcan Robo's Aura Plasma Returns) that are used in-show from 25.
- The opening used for this movie uses the scene of the trio leaping untransformed; the one that is supposed to be VulEagle is actually Hiba's predecessor, Ryuusuke Oowashi.
- The kabuki-like introduction used by Sun Vulcan at one point (including the usage of bamboo parasols) will later be actually done as the team introduction for another three-man Sentai team.
- The DVD release of Super Sentai: The Movie Volume 2 features Denshi Sentai Denziman: The Movie, Taiyo Sentai Sun Vulcan: The Movie, Dai Sentai Goggle V: The Movie, Kagaku Sentai Dynaman: The Movie & Choudenshi Bioman: The Movie.
- The Blu Ray Release of Super Sentai: The Movie Volume 1 Features Himitsu Sentai Gorenger: The Bomb Hurricane, J.A.K.Q. Dengekitai vs. Gorenger, Denshi Sentai Denziman: The Movie, Taiyo Sentai Sun Vulcan: The Movie & Dai Sentai Goggle V: The Movie.
