In the iTunes cover art, Wayne Gretzky is considerably larger than Tony Hawk. However, in the alternate cover that serves as an annotation link during the credits of the battle and is used for the cover in other music sharing platforms such as SoundCloud, Gretzky is approximately the same size as Hawk.
The iTunes cover was later changed to the alternate cover, making it the second battle to have the iTunes cover changed, after James Bond vs Austin Powers.
This is the sixth battle overall in which both title rappers are currently alive.
The logo on Gretzky's jersey reads "OILERB" instead of "OILERS," another instance of the ERB series name appearing on a character's outfit.
Hawk's helmet also says "ERB" on its logo, but only in the thumbnail of the battle and the alternate cover.
During Gretzky's line, "And my hot wife, the only woman in the world for Wayne!", the scoreboard in the background projected a shape of a heart, indicating Gretzky's love for his wife in real life. This may also reference kiss-cams that frequently appear on scoreboards in sports matches.
During the line, "Then you got out-spun by a 12-year-old kid!", a hand can be seen holding Gretzky's skates in place.
During the line, "This ain't typical sports; I use centripetal force," the subtitles misspell "ain't" as "aint."
During the line, "Now the teams Mighty Suck," Hawk's hand can be seen at the left of the screen for a brief moment.
During the line, "I taught kids around the world that there's nothing they can't do!", it reads, "I taught kids around the world that there's nothing you can't do!"
Nice Peter is credited for video editing twice in the description of the video.
