  • Despite the NTSC name of this Event Match, both of the non-boss opponents involved are not consistently considered to be dragons:
    • Charizard lacks the “Dragon” Pokémon elemental type unless Mega Evolved into Mega Charizard X despite being based on a European dragon.
    • Yoshi is generally (and inconsistently) considered a dinosaur rather than a dragon in his home series. An update on the Smash Bros. DOJO!! (now changed) once read:
It’s tough to know what to call Yoshi—some call him a dragon, others a dinosaur. Some people don’t know WHAT he is. But whatever you call him, Yoshi’s true power will be seen here! [1]
  • This is one of only three events in Wii U to have a stage boss for an opponent. The others are Mechanical Menace and Yellow Devils.
    • As well as being the only Co-Op event to have a stage boss, this also marks only one of two events to have Mega Man as a playable character.
      • Ironically, this is also the only event to have both opponents in Mechanical Menace as playable fighters.
  • Considering his Classic Mode route primarily consists of opponents with draconic characteristics, Marth fights all three opponents in this Co-Op event individually in Ultimate, given that his route in Classic Mode is entitled A Kingdom of Dragons. Although Marth’s route has only three other differences from this event.
    • Yoshi is fought with a team of four other alternate costumes of himself (and that all five appear by Yoshi’s default size no less).
    • Ridley is fought as a giant playable opponent instead of a stage boss.
    • Rather than being fought on Pyrosphere, all three characters are fought on stages from either Marth’s universe, Fire Emblem (for Charizard and Yoshi each via Castle Siege and Arena Ferox respectively) or The Legend of Zelda (for Ridley via Gerudo Valley).
