Character appearances[]

(Numbers indicate order of appearance.)

N Team Forces of Chaos Others


  • First and only appearance of the world of Punch-Out.



  • In a scene at the gym, the wall is shown lifted up again after King Hippo put it down again.
  • One of the posters on the gym wall says "BIG MATC".
  • When Mother Brain opens the chests at the end of the episode, the red chest has a blue lid and the blue chest has a red lid.
  • In the shot where Kid Icarus is talking to Lana, the middle part on his sandals is blue instead of skin-toned.
  • When Simon is talking about himself not losing, his outfit is light blue instead of dark blue.
  • When Mother Brain calls the N Team, one eyelid appears darker than the other.
  • In the scene where Lana dices into the water, her swimsuit turns completely white.


  • Donkey Kong is on Mother Brain's team in this episode, but in most other episodes is as antagonistic to her and her minions as anyone else.
    • His disposition seems to be dependent on his mood swings throughout the series. In "The Invasion of the Paper Pedalers" he isn't particularly antagonistic towards either the N Team or Mother Brain, whereas in the "The Lost City of Kongoland" he's highly antagonistic towards both of them.
    • It's possible that Mother Brain was able to find Donkey Kong when he was in a good mood and convinced him to help her, or else created a clone or robot lookalike (like android Mike Vincent or the Dragon Lord robot that appears in "I Wish I Was a Wombatman") to serve her. The latter possibility, however, makes one wonder why Mother Brain never used the clone or robot again after the wrestling match, making the former possibility more likely.


  • Mega Man gets tired while working out. How can this possibly happen? He's a robot! (And for the record, this episode cannot take place after "Happy Birthday, Megaman" in which he becomes human, since Kevin hasn’t met Dr. Wright yet).
    • For that matter, why does Mega Man even need to work out in a human gym? He's a robot; he has various equipment and gadgets that he can borrow from Dr. Wright and can use the abilities of defeated Robot Masters (but since this episode takes place before "Mega Trouble for Mega Land" he may not have gotten them yet).
  • Why would the Count need to work out in a boxing ring in the world of Punch-Out? He's a vampire, and could use his magic or summon minions to compete for him. Apparently the writers haven't done enough research on the Castlevania series.
  • Why was Kid Icarus still flying during most of the workouts? Wouldn't that defeat the purpose of a lot of them?
