- Shroomed took shots with n0ne in the middle of his Melee singles qualifying set against Trif. Despite getting tipsy, he would also end up winning the set. This continues the running joke that Shroomed gets powered up when there's a qualifying spot on the line. (For example, GameTyrant Expo 2017 to qualify for Smash Summit 5 and GENESIS 7 to qualify for Smash Summit 9.)
- Third-party GameCube controller adapters caused numerous issues during the Last Chance Qualifier, as opposed to first-party adapters, which are more reliable. They caused controller disconnects (for example, causing The6Master to lose a winning game in the last stocks of Game 2 vs. VoiD) and broke Lima's controller in his qualifying set vs. Ouch!?, forcing him to borrow ven's controller to narrowly win in a reverse 3-0 fashion, last game, last stocks.
- Both Melee and Ultimate singles featured a Canadian Ice Climbers player qualifying for the main event (Lunar Dusk and Big D, respectively).
