This is Billy's third major role in an episode. The first two were in "The Extras," and "The Egg."


  • This is the seventh time an episode makes references to past episodes. The first seven episodes were "The Finale," "The Fan," "The Name," "The Oracle," "The Nobody," "The Egg," and "The Nemesis".
  • This is the second time Gumball tries to go Super Saiyan, the first time being in "The Others." However, he succeeds this time.
  • When making fun of Gumball's sweater, Billy says, "2011 called and said to keep it, as it wasn't cool when you started wearing it," which is a reference to the year of the show's premiere.
  • Music from "The Signature" is reused.
  • Anais spins the same way she did in "The Ape" when the Wattersons were chasing Miss Simian.
  • After the football players walk on Gumball, his face looks exactly the same as when he beat himself up in "The Society."
  • This is the fourth episode where Gumball has to fight someone against his will. The first three were "The Fight," "The Knights," and "The Sweaters."
