"When we knew that we wanted to do a dual dragon we went out and build several completely different takes on this concept. We ended up with a simple design that had the mixing of fire and water running down the back of the dragon.
For the forge itself I wanted to have a big play space but still try and have the opportunity to close up the build. I tried to put in a lot of small play functions that tied in to crafting weapons. That is why we in the instructions give ideas to how you can rebuild the weapons in the set."
- Kai and Nya have double-sided heads in this set, with each having a smirking expression on one side and angry expressions with their respective elements in their eyes on the other.
- Only Nya's double-sided head is exclusive to this set because Kai's double-sided head came in 891729 Kai and in The Ultimate Ninja Training Manual book.

- Kai wears a ninja hood in this set, but in 70621 The Vermillion Attack he wears a bandana.
- At the end of the set's animation, Raggmunk doesn't appear alongside the other characters. This is probably due to an animation error.
