This episode incorrectly used the closing credits from the previous episode ("And Then..."), and listed them as being from "Episode 11" instead of "Episode 12."
During the closing credits, Herbaliser was incorrectly credited as "Herbalizer" for one of the songs featured in this episode, yet correctly credited for the main theme song.
Even though this episode also included the song "Verbal" by Amon Tobin, it was not listed in the closing credits.
One of Team Edgeraid's sponsors is Global Internet Top System, Inc. (GiTS)
The GiTS decal on the forearms of Team Edgeraid's mechs is most likely a reference to another Production I.G. work, Ghost in the Shell.
The closing credits accidentally listed "L-Virata" by Hexstatic twice for this episode.
Perhaps due to the fact that IGPX aired on Toonami rather than Adult Swim, the alcoholic beverages featured on this episode were passed off as something more benign. In the American version of the episode, the can we often see Andre drinking from is soda, originally he was supposed to be drinking beer. Also in the American version, Jesse's "special" coffee simply has chocolate added, but in the Japanese version the coffee has brandy.
