From: Hikari Sentai Maskman - Episode 39
- X1 Mask’s helmet was from a rejected concept design for the Maskman team. Maskman was originally titled “The Fiveman” (not to be confused with Chikyuu Sentai Fiveman) while in development. Only the prototype helmet was used for the X1 Mask costume, though.
- X1 Mask is considered to be a precursor to the “sixth member” convention that became common in other Super Sentai series. In the “The Fiveman” draft, X1 was red and designated as the leader of the group.
