  • Despite the contents of the book including only the first two seasons of the TV series, Lotor appears on page 49 as a teaser for season 3.


  • The book erroneously uses a picture of Rax in place of Shay, whereas Rax's own picture is of another Balmeran.[1]
  • The coverage on the bayards was contradicted in season 3.[3] Whereas the book states that a specific bayard was used for different styles of fighting, the TV series show that they adjust to the whichever paladin is using it.[4]
