- Video Game References in this episode:
- The 'Love & Peace' part of the title could be a reference to the ending theme from Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2.
- Ren lies that players who were killed in Kamen Rider Chronicle can come back to life after the game is completed. This is a reference to respawning and how in certain game campaigns prevent a player from respawning until a winner is determined for that particular game mode.
- Poppy checks on the number of Players of Kamen Rider Chronicle, certain game companies keep track of the number of players using their games, especially online games.
- Nico customizing her Ride-Player form could be a reference to certain video games where players get to customize their avatars whenever they start a new game.
- Lovrica's only method of getting damaged by being insulted by women is a reference to how loses and game over for dating sim games would center around the character which players try to impress dumps them.
- The use of "Love & Peace" in Latin letters with an ampersand is most likely a reference to the catchphrase of Vash the Stampede from Trigun as the Japanese name for the fourth episode of Trigun was spelled exactly the same way, albeit in uppercase instead of lowercase.
- This is the first time that Ex-Aid doesn't assume Maximum Gamer Level 99 since its debut.
- When Ren is confronting with Taiga in his office, he mentioned Nico with a special gesture, which is same as the signature pose of Nico Yazawa from Love Live! who shares same given name with Nico Saiba.
