Everlot Ron's mouth doesn't appear to move in the "Booyah!" at the end of the episode.
During the cage-wagon scene, Everlot Jake briefly has 5 fingers. For anytime before or after that one shot, he only has 4.
The warehouse with the Immersion Caps inside looks strangely similar to the shot in the opening of "Ron Factor"...
As Ron and Zita walk past Malcolm(in Middleton High), the bottom of Ron's shirt is red
Zita: Come on! We gotta free the other players!
Ron: Are all girls like this, or just the ones I know?
Zita: (after hearing a noise in the empty warehouse) What's that sound?
Zita: What's N.G.?
Ron: Not good.
Ron: Here's the deal: Zita and I are downtown wearing some kind of-
Kim: Immersion caps.
Ron: Okay. Let's call them "immersion caps"…
Ron: (seeing Kim in Everlot) KP? You're a. . . a. . .
Zita: A Sprite-kin.
Ron: Awww. That's so cute.
Kim: Watch it, naïve.
Ron: (swatting at sprite-kin) The bugs in Everlot are really annoying.
Kim: (as a sprite-kin): Ron.
Ron: (to Zita) What?
Zita: What, what?
Ron: You said, "Ron."
Zita: No I didn't.
Ron: Zita could take on the Wraith Sister.
Malcolm: Wraith Master.
Ron (to Zita): Is that what she's calling herself now?
Wade: Hit the ground with your sword and say, 'Bog open'.
Ron: Bog open. (Panicking and whacking sword against the ground): Open Open Open!
Ron (Seeing the chairs and immersion caps): Good thing no one else came, there's only two seats!
Ron: I think he's trying to impress you.
Zita: By being good at Everlot? Like I'm that shallow? It's just a game. Can you imagine?
Ron: No. . . I can't.
Zita: What kind of help?
Ron: The cheating kind of help.
Zita: You're a noob?!
First episode to premiere at KP's new time, 5/4c.
Animation Production by: Starburst Animation Co., Ltd
First released (in the states) as part of an in-store Wal-Mart retailtainment event (9/6/03).
Bedknobs and Broomsticks:
The spell Ron uses to merge the magic staffs ("Tragoona Mercoydes") is the first part of the spell used by Eglantine Price to bring inanimate objects to life.
Super Mario Bros.:
When Ron and Zita leap towards Malcolm doing the Matrix kicks, the sound effect of the jump is from Super Mario Bros.
There are some references to the movie TRON as well, most notably being forcibly trapped in the system and unable to "log out", and leading a rebellion of sorts.
Malcolm: The Wraith Master
This name is a play on one of the villains in The Lord of the Rings: The Lord of the Ring Wraiths.
The Empire Strikes Back:
The duel between the Tunnel Lord and the Wraith Master uses several elements from the lightsaber duels in The Empire Strikes Back.
The animation for the virtual-world of Everlot is done in the style of Genndy Tartakovsky's Samurai Jack (2001)
The game world, "Everlot," is probably a poke at Massively Multiplayer Online Games and their generic nature. The name combines "Everquest," and "[Dark Age of] Camelot," the first and second most popular such games in the USA. Both games have a typical fantasy setting seen in Everlot.
The last image of Ron in the virtual world mimics the classic painting of Frank Frazette "Against the Gods" used to illustrate Conan books, including the broken lightning bolt (it's easy to find this image in the Internet)
The Immersion Caps: None
The Immersion Caps are probably a parody of the addictive game Better Than Life from the novel Red Dwarf. The only difference is that, if you take off the Immersion Cap, it doesn't kill you. Better Than Life, however, does. Eesh.
Mr. Nevious' silent, unnamed, red-headed assistant bears strong physical and mannerism resemblences to Beaker, the hapless lab assistant to Dr. Bunsen Honeydew of the Muppets.
IN hte battle between Rufus and the other guy, Rufus has a blue sword and the other guy has a red sword. This is an obvious reference to Star Wars with the different color light sabers, red being evil, blue being good.
Ron: Treguna Mekoides!
The magic words Ron uses ("treguna mekoides") are the first two words of the Substitutiary Locomotion spell from the Disney movie Bedknobs and Broomsticks. The full spell is "treguna mekoides trecorum satis dee".
Battle Scenes: Split Screens/Closeups
The split screen and tight closeups seen during the battle scenes are a hallmark of Genndy Tartakovsky's Samurai Jack.
Everlot sounds like a copy of the LotR-style game Everquest.
