  • This episode uses a different version of the Weirdmageddon theme song, by using the 1st version of the intro, and with 8-Ball, Teeth, Keyhole and Hectorgon being replaced with Dipper, Mabel and Stan.[5]
  • Dipper says "Ready to the head into the Unknown", which is the homage of Over the Garden Wall's ninth episode "Into the Unknown".
  • Rumble does a thumbs up before fading away is a reference to the T-800 sacrifice from Terminator 2:Judgement day.
