Mikey instantly knows to use his Fusion Loader to view the invisible MetalTyrannomon, despite this being a never-before-seen function of the X Loader.
Mikey's Fusion Loader allows him to speak to Shoutmon in the Digital World, despite Squawkers being required just for local communication in the last series.
The prologue depicts Shoutmon X7 fighting Bagramon while Mikey, Christopher, Nene, Jeremy, and Angie stand by. This scene never actually occurred in Digimon Fusion, as when Shoutmon X7 fought Bagramon, AxeKnightmon was present but Jeremy and Angie were not. Conversely, when Jeremy and Angie were present, Bagramon had become MegaDarknessBagramon and Shoutmon had become Shoutmon X7F Superior Mode. This may be interpreted as artistic license, though.
