  • The music used in this event, King Dedede's Theme, normally plays on Halberd, rather than Boxing Ring.
  • This event references the fact that King Dedede and Kirby have frequently fought in arenas similar in appearance to Boxing Ring in the Kirby games. However, the roles are flipped: in the Kirby games, Kirby must defeat King Dedede, while the goal here is the other way around.
