  • Hungrybox was the first top Melee player in an Ultimate Summit since Smash Ultimate Summit 2 in October 2019.
  • This Summit's voting phase set a few new records:
    • Hungrybox received the most votes for a first round vote-in player (at 156,851 votes), surpassing Aaron's record from Smash Ultimate Summit 3.
    • VoiD received the most votes out of anyone voted into a Smash Summit (at around 331,000 votes), surpassing Kola's record from Smash Ultimate Summit 3.
    • omega received the most votes for a player who was ultimately eliminated from the voting phase (at around 273,000 votes), surpassing Peanut's record from Smash Ultimate Summit 3.
    • This was the first time all vote-ins were sponsored.
  • Aaron and VoiD became the first two players to get voted into a Smash Ultimate Summit twice.
    • Coincidentally, both were first voted in for Smash Ultimate Summit 3.
  • This was the first and only Smash Ultimate Summit without Dabuz, making MkLeo the only player to compete in every Smash Ultimate Summit.
  • The final spot qualifier match between Skyjay and Lui$ was in the midst of discussions of if Incineroar or Palutena can perform better in tournaments, following Skyjay's 2nd place run at Collision 2023.
  • Sparg0's 13th place was the first time he has been eliminated before Top 8 of an offline Ultimate tournament since GENESIS 7 in January 2020 (where he placed 49th).
  • Seeding was not redone after Light dropped out, leading to Skyjay being highly elevated to 6th seed. With a couple upsets in the final bracket, Skyjay was able to match his seed anyway, tied for 5th place.
    • Skyjay also outplaced fellow Mexican players MkLeo and Sparg0 for the second Ultimate major in a row, after doing so at Collision 2023.
  • acola's loser's run is the longest of any Ultimate Smash Summit champion, and is tied for the longest for any game's Smash Summit with Mango's at Smash Summit 11. acola lost to Big D in Winner's Quarterfinals and then won 7 consecutive sets from Top 12 onwards.
