Continuity notes[edit]

Continuity errors[edit]

  • Turbo blasts Crasher in such a manner that she falls forward into the Master Renegade and then turns at a 90 degree angle to fly out the airlock. It's like the "magic bullet", but with hand-blasters.
  • Small Foot didn't appear to be seriously injured by the Master Renegade, but she is suddenly under Rest Q's care with a mysterious injury that made her transforming circuitry disappear...allowing the audience to see the Modifier for the first time.
  • So after stumbling into a mysterious hidden chamber in the Moon of Knowledge and finding a clue to the Last Engineer's final fate, then going on a wild goose chase across the galaxy to Antares III, the Guardians find the Last Engineer after centuries when a stray Thruster blast creates a hole in the road, they fall in, and Scooter then crashes through a second hole, all completely at random. It's like slipping on a banana peel and finding Jimmy Hoffa under a table when you fall.

Animation and technical errors[edit]

  • Van Guard speaks both his lines and Scratch's while on monitor duty.
  • Crasher's pupils are missing when she asks to fire on Leader-1 from Thruster.
  • Rest Q suddenly has a mouth when he finds the team with the Last Engineer.
  • When the Guardians break in to save Leader-1, Cy-Kill's lips mouth "What?", but no sound comes out.
  • Slicks's mouth doesn't move when he calls for reinforcements.
