  • Halberd was the only vehicle-based stage to not be featured in this event tourney, though it could be argued that its absence was due to not having the entire battle take place on the ship.
    • Ironically, Cloud's Classic Mode route, which also centers around fighting on vehicle stages, does feature this stage.
  • This tourney had the same premise as Ace Piloting Is a Must! except without character restrictions.
  • This was the final new Event Tourney to be introduced before repeats of older Spirit Board events and Event Tourneys started to be held.[3]
