This is the first penultimate battle of a season in which EpicLLOYD does not rap.
This is the third battle where the suggestion comes from somewhere other than YouTube. In this case, all three suggestions were taken from Instagram. A suggestion from former ERB Wiki user, Meatholl, appears on the right.
It is also the largest group cameo to be portrayed by one actor.
On August 22, 2016, Julius Caesar's quote, "It is better to create than to learn! Creating is the essence of life.", was written in the description.
This is the sixth battle to have additional music added in created by the ERB crew.
When Caesar says "Last of the republicans" he makes a thumbs down gesture. This is a reference to the modern belief in popular culture in Ancient Rome known as the "police verso" where a thumbs up from the crowd of the Roman Colosseum would mean a gladiator should live or be spared, while a thumbs down indicated that the gladiator should die.
Both Shaka Zulu's and Julius Caesar's distinctive battle formations are shown in each of their second verses.
They are also shown in the outro, represented by multiple ERB logos.
During Shaka Zulu's first verse, the word "go" is missing from "When I go hand-to-hand with you" in the subtitles.
During his second verse, Shaka mistakenly claims the Shakespearean tragedy Julius Caesar ends with Caesar's assassination. This is a common misconception, as Caesar's assassination occurs in the third of the five acts, and the play really ends with Brutus committing suicide in the knowledge that he had been excessively idealistic in joining the conspiracy against Caesar.
During Shaka Zulu's second verse, the word "hordes" is misspelled as "hoards".
