Bruce Faulconer tracks
- "Hyperbolic Time Chamber (soundtrack 1)" - When Goku and Vegeta face Super Buu in his own body.
- This episode picked up where "Mind Trap" had left off.
- Just like in the previous episode, when Goku lands next to Vegeta with Gohan, Gotenks, and Piccolo surrounding them, there is a shot where Goku is in base form, then another shot where he is shown as a Super Saiyan.
- When Old Kai's Crystal Ball is on the fritz, Kibito Kai says that he created that one himself. However, this is incorrect, as the Old Kai created the Crystal Ball while awakening Gohan's Hidden Potential.
- During the flashback to the Good and Evil Buu fight, the English versions make it sound like Goku and Vegeta are reading Super Buu's thoughts (Goku did something similar to Krillin during the Namek Saga). However, in the Japanese version and in the manga, they never read Buu's mind and Vegeta simply tells Goku about what he had watched from the Other World while he was dead (the flashback in the anime simply accompanying his account of what happened).
