    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

      • When Kid Icarus picks up a heart item while he and Mega Man are climbing Mt. Icarus, it shimmers throughout his body like some kind of power up. This is inconsistent with the Kid Icarus game, where hearts act as money.

      • When Eggplant Wizard grabs the rope that controls the veil-lowering pulley system for Mother Brain's gown and catches Dr. Wily's foot in a loop (when he is flying across the room screaming), it's not Ian Corlett (Wily's voice actor in this series) that's screaming, but Michael Donovan (Eggplant Wizard's voice actor) who's screaming.

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Mother Brain: King Hippo! Get rid'a those party crashers!
        King Hippo: Hee-hah! Alright, bigmouth! Put up yer dukes!
        Kevin: You heard 'em, Duke! Up!
        (Duke lunges at King Hippo)

      • Kevin: Stay close. I think the bridge goes this way.
        Lana: What if you're wrong?
        Kevin: Then we'll be getting some free skydiving lessons - parachutes not included.

      • Kevin: Your powers don't scare us!
        Dracula: I'm so happy to hear that. You know, fear makes the blood taste terrible.

      • Kevin: Hey, it's either that or go back home and clean up my room.

      • Simon: How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. One is for your little button-nose. Two is for your cute little twinkle-toes. Three is...
        Mother Brain: Enough! I want the truth this time! What is your real plan?
        Simon: All right, I'll tell you. My plan is to hug and kiss those cute little wrinkles on your brain!
        King Hippo: Aw, this is a trick, Mother Brain. No one could possibly love you! You're too ugly!
        Mother Brain: I'm what?

    • NOTES (5)

      • Episode released on DVD titled: Captain N The Game Master The Complete Series.

      • While "The Most Dangerous Game Master" aired first, this is the first chronological appearance of Castlevania, The Count, and Mount Icarus.

      • When Kevin, Duke, and Lana are in the Forest of Forgetfulness, the theme played is the underground/indoors theme from Super Mario USA.

      • The music played before Kevin, Lana, and Duke jump into the Warp Zone for Castlevania is a slight remix of the boss theme from Super Mario USA (Super Mario Bros 2 in the US).

        Also, when Simon drops Lana into the Warp Zone for the Forest of Forgetfulness, the music played is an arrangement of the castle theme (World X-4) of the original Super Mario Bros.

      • Alternately titled "Love at First Sight" in some circles.
