    • is the first season since Samurai Sentai Shinkenger to not have a pre-series cameo.

    • Both have heroes raised by their uncle (Patren 3gou and Kamen Rider Zi-O)
      • The force of time isn't as prevelent, but Noël and the Lupinrangers have lost someone they loved, so they want to "reclaim their frozen time", which is their motivation/reasoning to become Lupinrangers.
    • Both the heroes and the Monsters of both shows use the same collectible device to use their powers with them having differences between who uses them.

    • Both series are feature a powerful gold forms in final battle. 
  • This is the only Sentai TV series to use “VS.” title outside VS Sentai crossover films. As well as being the first VS Sentai title to have “VS.” part to be pronounced as the letters, instead of the usual Japanese translation word “対/tai”.
  • It appears that this series’ team classification numbers follows a similar route as the four of two main Kamen Riders from each two first Showa era series, namely Kamen Rider (1971 - 1973 Original series)Icon-crosswiki and its sequel Kamen Rider V3Icon-crosswiki.
    • However, Lupin X/Patren X's one-off reference of both the teams being the VS Sentai creates a possibility that both the teams would be counted as one.
