- The Tread Assault's snake features are never used in the show, though in some angles can be seen underneath it.
- This set is similar to 9445 Fangpyre Truck Ambush, as they are both 4x4s about the same size, and are both used in Rise of the Snakes.
- This is the only Golden Weapon vehicle set to have a cannon of any sort.
- This set was the cheapest way to get Skales.
