Trivia: The couple driving the station wagon that Brock opens fire on are the parents of the boy Doc had to clone at his Day Camp in "The Buddy System."
Trivia: When Hank talks about imagining jumping off the roof in a Batman costume, he's recalling one of the obscure deaths (#7) that his previous clone suffered from, as noted in "Powerless in the Face of Death."
Trivia: Judging from the interior, and several of the performers on-stage, it appears the bar where Col. Gathers is now working is actually "Nightin' Ales" the bar where Brock and Doc Venture went in the Season 1 episode "Midlife Chrysalis."
Trivia: Several men in the flashback resemble Guild Wasps, operatives who typically wear goggles and overcoats. These uniforms are altered to match the period of the flashback.
Trivia: Col. Venture's bodyguard is Eugen Sandow, who lived from 1867 to 1925, and is considered the Father of Modern Bodybuilding.
Trivia: Members of the original Guild include Colonel Lloyd Venture (Rusty's ancestor) and fictional French arch-villain Fantômas (the Phantom Limb's ancestor). Other members include famous real-life men such as Samuel Clemens (1835-1910), American writer. Oscar Wilde (1854-1900),Irish writer. Aleister Crowley (1875-1947), British occultist. Nikola Tesla (1856-1943), Serbian inventor. This grouping of famous vintage characters resembles Alan Moore's League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, which had Fantômas and Tesla as members.
Trivia: Henchman 24 mentions former Henchman Speedy, and also when Brock hit him with a car. Both are from the first episode, "Dia de Los Dangerous." Ironically, the late Speedy predates both 21 and 24 as a named Henchman, and a full character.
Trivia: The strange boy who resembles comedian Carrot Top, who was seen in the background of "The Buddy System" and the flashback in "What Goes Down, Must Come Up" can be seen in the museum crowd after Prof. Impossible jumps from the balcony. He is now accompanied by a dark-skinned boy with black hair, and a middle-aged man.
Trivia: During the original Team Venture's battle at Spider-Skull island, Swifty, Rusty's boxing bodyguard, can be seen flying around in the hover boots Dean was wearing in "The Doctor is Sin."
Trivia: Characters seen in the crowd, but without speaking parts include Col. Bud Manstrong and his mother, Hector Molina, Johnny Action, Mr. Brisby and Mandalay, the Mexican University Administrator from "Dia de Los Dangerous," and the Submarine Captain from "Assassinanny 911."
Even though we saw the Monarch's Cocoon moving toward Spider Skull Island in the last episode, and this whole episode takes place on Spider Skull Island, we don't find out the result of that encounter. Presumably the episodes were not aired in order.
Trivia: The name Henchman 21 uses when he writes to Dean's advice column is "The Viceroy." 21 also considered making that his full-fledged supervillain name in the episode "Powerless in the Face of Death." It, like "Monarch," doubles as a term for a position of authority and as a type of butterfly.
Trivia: One of the children, a boy with wild red hair who looks a bit like comedian Carrot Top, shown attending the tour in the flashback is identical to another who attended Rusty's Day Camp in "The Buddy System." Given the span of years involved, it obviously isn't the same boy.
The episode apparently conflates all tropical peoples, as circumcision does not occur in the Amazon. Or among any indigenous peoples in the Western Hemisphere.
Brock is wearing his "Yeti" costume up until Sgt. Hatred starts taking photos. In the photos, you can see that Brock is in his normal clothes, but after the photos are taken, Brock is back in the Yeti costume.
Around the time Sgt Hatred's party starts, the Monarch's typically very pale skin changes to a noticeably healthier flesh tone for several scenes. His skin changes back to its normal color in the hot tub.
Trivia: Among the items tossed in the fire by the Monarch, you can see the portrait of Phantom Limb's costumed adventurer ancestor from the episode "The Invisible Hand of Fate."
Trivia: There is a portrait of Richard Nixon hanging above Sergeant Hatred's fireplace.
The closed captions mispelled "Sorayama" (as in Mike Sorayama from a previous episode) as "Sariamo" when referring to the design of Billy's cybernetic arm.
Trivia: Brock's superior, Sgt. Haine, bears a striking resemblance to the villain Sgt. Hatred seen briefly for the first time in "Fallen Arches." Haine is French for "hate."
