It is the first battle to not show the rappers on the cover art.
On August 22, 2016, "If Snoop returns in a future rap battle who should he portray?" was written in the description of the video.
The quote was then changed to, "The main reason Santa is so jolly is because he knows where all the bad girls live," before the release of Donald Trump vs Hillary Clinton.
If you look closely at the stone tablet Moses carries in his second verse, "ERB" is written on the fifth line down.
This is the first rap battle to have an A-list rapper portray a character.
This is the first battle to not show the two rappers side-by-side as to do so would break the illusion of EpicLLOYD being shorter for his portrayal of the Christmas elves.
Santa Claus has a different title card in the "[CC] Translated" video for this battle.
The cookie around Santa Claus' neck could be a reference to Nice Peter's song "Santa is a Gangsta," where he also plays Santa Claus, only without a fat suit and different attire. Also, EpicLLOYD plays a Christmas elf in both videos.
Part of Moses' second verse is a parody of one of Snoop Dogg's songs, "Gin And Juice".
Although the cover art shows Santa's hand wearing a white glove, he does not wear any gloves during the battle.
Moses can be seen with sweatpants and socks during almost every scene with him in it.
During the line, "I'm from the North Pole", the lyrics are shown incorrectly as, "I'm from North Pole".
The word "racist" is spelled as "rascist" on Santa's naughty list.
During the line, "I'm a jolly bowl o' jelly, giving holiday presents", the intended "o'" is transcribed as an "a".
