- Narrator: Nya
- The title of this episode is very similar to the title of Season 13.
- During April 2021, Tommy Andreasen changed his Twitter name to "Ninja! What does that even mean?" for a brief period as a way of hinting at one of Kalmaar's lines in this episode.
- According to Bragi Schut, the dialogue where Kalmaar says he's leaving with the amulet is "some classic [Chris Wyatt] and [Kevin Burke] humor!"
- This episode marks the first appearance of Vania, Hailmar, Korgran, Fungus, Plundar, Adam, Murtessa, Gulch, Chompy, and Shintaro since "The Son of Lilly".
- This is the first time the ninja are shown to play billiard located in the relaxation room in the monastery.
- When fighting the Merlopians on the Hydro Bounty, Zane can be seen wearing his Armor gi. He would later be seen wearing his Scuba suit in the next scene that he is visible in.
- Vania is still credited as a princess, although she became a queen in "The Son of Lilly".
- When Jay runs to the Hydro Bounty's railing to find out what's wrong with Nya, Wu holds his staff. However, when Nya emerges from the sea, the staff disappears.
