  • This episode was Musical Mike's debut in YGO Abridged as the Businessman.
  • Joey's reference to Tristan and the scissors is a callback to "The Plot Thinnens".
  • The dialogue between Joey and Yugi about whether or not Tristan's motorcycle is a Honda is a reference to Tristan's Japanese name, Hiroto Honda.
