Featured B-DaBattles[]


  • Bull Borgnine was in his wild form when he was turned to stone. However, when he is revived, he is in his calm form. It's possible that he automatically reverted back to his usual form as soon the spell that turned the B-DaPlayers to stone was lifted.
  • Ababa is significantly taller in this episode and in the episode "The Return of the B-DaPlayer" after he was reverted to his true form than in the others. His voice is also different.
    • Because of his height change, Ababa is taller than multiple characters in this episode that he would normally be shorter than.
  • Footage from "They Call Me Yamato" was used in this episode.
  • This episode aired on Spacetoon in 2009 and later reaired in 2019 as part of "Friday Memories" day in which classic shows that aired on the channel every March.


  • The heights of several characters in the final scene are inconsistent with their heights in most scenes:
    • Cain is noticeably taller than Enjyu in the final scene, even though they are either the same or almost the same height in most scenes.
    • Cain and Joshua are both the same height as Marilyn in the final scene, even though she is slightly taller than they are in most scenes.
    • Sly is noticeably taller than Mie in the final scene, even though they are either the same or almost the same height in most scenes.
  • Wen and Li's flashback of Yamato pranking them while wearing an Armada costume appears to take place at the cat café. This creates a continuity error as Wen and Li are already in possession of their new B-Daman King Bakuso and King Rekuso, respectively which wasn't until the episode "Food Fight" which would have been after the last time Yamato had been at the cat café prior to this episode. Yamato also hadn't reunited with his mother Mie until the episode "Bright Lights, Neon City" which was after the last time Li would have been at the cat café prior to this episode.
