Trivia[edit]

  • The event took place during June 20, 2021, which happened to be Father's Day in 91 countries.
    • Incidentally, the event was announced around the same time Kazuya (whose constant feuds with his father Heihachi and his son Jin are constantly recurring Tekken motifs) was announced as a DLC fighter in Ultimate.
  • The Donkey Kong & Lady, Dr. Wily, Garon, and Munchy Monk are the only spirits shown in the poster to not have any fighters (their children in this case) shown in place.
    • Munchy Monk is the only one of the four to not have a fighter from its series, Rhythm Heaven.
