  • When Shuichi confronts Asakura in the vacant Room 401, he told Asakura that he'll be his "main dish".
    • This catchphrase would be used 11 years later in Kamen Rider Wizard, with Kousuke Nitoh using Shuichi's words as his main catchphrase every time he performs his finisher.
  • First and only time the Pscyorogue Advent card is used in this episode.
  • Final appearance of Hideyuki Kagawa.
    • With Kagawa's death, this marks the end of the Alternative Riders, leaving Tojo as the last surviving member of Kagawa's Research Lab.
  • Up until this episode, the number of victims that died inside the Mirror World are 4 people so far. Miyuki Tezuka doesn't count, since he was outside of the Mirror World thanks to Shinji, but dies later after being struck by Ouja's Veno Crash.
