- Narrator: Kalmaar
- The title of the episode is based off the phrase "long live the king," a traditional proclamation whenever the heir succeeds to a throne upon the death of the preceding ruler.
- This episode provides an in-universe explanation on why Zane wears a scuba mask even though he doesn't need one.
- He wears one because he feels it completes his attire.
- This is the first time a parricide and regicide, meaning the killing of a parent or other relative, is directly shown in Ninjago.
- When the palace is flooded with water, P.I.X.A.L. has a black frame around her face, just like in Hunted and March of the Oni.
