Trivia

  • Prior to the 1.1.0 update, the ordering of all Punch-Out!! spirits after Glass Joe was much different than in the final release, being based on the opponent order in Punch-Out!! for Wii: Von Kaiser, King Hippo, Piston Hondo, Bear Hugger, Great Tiger, Don Flamenco, Soda Popinski, Bald Bull, Super Macho Man, and Mr. Sandman.
  • Despite first appearing in Super Punch-Out!! for the arcade, Soda Popinski is grouped with the boxers that debuted in the NES installment. This is likely because he was named "Vodka Drunkenski" in the arcade.
  • Disco Kid and Aran Ryan are the only boxers from Punch-Out!! for Wii to not appear as a spirit in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
    • Likewise, Mike Tyson and Mr. Dream are the only boxers from the NES Punch-Out!! to not have a spirit in Ultimate, likely because they did not appear in the Wii Punch-Out!!, which is where the spirit artwork is taken from, as well as that Nintendo's license to use Mike Tyson's likeness expired.
  • All spirit battles against Punch-Out!! spirits are fought as Stamina Battles on Boxing Ring.
  • Don Flamenco's spirit battle is the only Punch-Out!! spirit battle not to play music from the Punch-Out!! universe.
  • Great Tiger's spirit battle is the only Punch Out!! spirit battle to have more than one opponent.
  • In Adventure mode, all Punch-Out!! spirits that appear in spirit battles, as well as Little Mac himself, are controlled by light: they either appear in the World of Light or on Galeem's side in the Final Battle.
  • Punch-Out!! is one of the six universes with playable characters not to have any female spirits (or group spirits that include female characters), the others being Yoshi, Game & Watch, R.O.B., Final Fantasy, and Fatal Fury.
