- This is the cheapest way to get the new Samurai X minifigure, as it is $30 dollars cheaper than the other sets that Samurai X appears in. She previously appeared in 70625 Samurai VXL and 70642 Killow vs. Samurai X, both of which cost fifty dollars, while this set only costs twenty dollars.
- Resistance Skylor is exclusive to this set. This is also the second major set to feature Skylor, as she previously appeared in 2014's 70746 Condrai Copter Attack. She also appeared in an accessory set in 2017. However, Skylor;s hair color and face print were not changed to accommodate her new appearance in Season 9: Hunted.
- Skylor wields shurikens and dual katanas on her back, however, she does not have them in the show.
- The set bears resemblance to 70591 Kryptarium Prison Breakout, especially in how both sets cost twenty dollars and feature five minifigures, and one of the Ninja is being held in a cell.
- Harumi's appearance in this set is the first appearance of her Quiet One suit she wears in "Dread on Arrival" and onward.
- This is the third Ninjago set to include more females than males, the first being 70625 Samurai VXL with Machia, Nya, Rivett and Samurai X, and the second being 70641 Ninja Nightcrawler, which featured Lloyd, Nya, and Ultra Violet.
- This is one of two sets in the Hunted Summer 2018 wave that doesn't take place in the Realm of Oni and Dragons, the other set being the 70658 Oni Titan.
- This set includes Lloyd's new hairpiece for the first time in a Ninjago set not part of The LEGO Ninjago Movie.
- Despite most sets being based on the show, Lloyd is never captured, and the throne room of the palace wasn’t the base of operations for the Sons of Garmadon, and hardly appeared in Hunted, only shown in the first few episodes. This is the only set in the wave to have this issue. Therefore, this set is technically non-canon.
- This set's first appearance was actually in Season 8.
- Nya comes with her new Ninja hood. However, she didn't wear it in any of the episodes in Season 9.
- Skylor uses the utility belt piece originally used on Batman from The LEGO Batman Movie, which would later appear on Clutch Powers in 40342 LEGO NINJAGO 2019 Minifigure Set.
