Errors

  • When Uranus bursts a Judgement Joker, the Joker's Blitz disc was attached to the layer.

Trivia

  • This is the first instance in the Beyblade Burst series where a Beyblade is upgraded into an entirely different one.
  • It is rather interesting to note that Lain's situation of becoming greedy for power is the exact opposite of Shu's. However, they are very similar since they both involved battling Free:
    • In Shu's case, his power spree started after losing to Free.
    • In Lain's case, his power spree started after winning against Free.
  • In the English version of the episode, Hyuga and Noboru's faces glow red when they are eating, but in the Japanese version, their faces completely turn red.
