  • This episode appears to have been first released out of order, as it revealed new information although it had to be known previously:
    • Master Fu says that since Hawk Moth knows his identity, he chose to keep a low profile, but it is not clear if it is a reference to "Backwarder", in which Hawk Moth became aware of his real name, or if he actually discovered that Chan and Fu are the same person.
    • Hawk Moth also previously discovered the existence of the other kwamis in "Sandboy" and knew they were close to the Seine, though he was unsuccessful in locating them fully.
  • This episode marks one of the few times a Miraculous holder's identity is revealed to another that is not Ladybug or Cat Noir, with that being Hawk Moth. Currently, Hawk Moth knows the identity of two superheroes: Chloé Bourgeois (Queen Bee) and Kagami Tsurugi (Ryuko). However, unlike Chloé, Kagami's identity as Ryuko is not known by the rest of the city of Paris.
  • This episode has few references to "Ladybug & Cat Noir":
    • Much like how it happened with Adrien when he became Cat Noir, Kagami transformed before hearing her kwami's explanation fully first. In both cases, this caused some troubles during the fight against an akumatized villain.
    • Much like how it happened with Ladybug failing for the first time and wanting to give up, Kagami wanted to give up after failing the first time too. In both cases, they were encouraged by a friend to try again.
  • This episode shows that Kagami had no friends besides Adrien Agreste, until she became friends with Marinette Dupain-Cheng.
  • This episode shows that as Ryuko, Kagami can call upon one of her three transformations Water, Wind, and Lighting.


  • During Kagami Tsurugi's transformation, her eyes don't change, but when she escapes from Ikari Gozen, her eyes change to dragon eyes.
