Trivia

  • The songs "Urei" and "Laugh After Pain" were reused from the Erica Sakura anime for the Japanese release.
  • Unlike the Erica Sakura anime, this series is a cartoon made primarily in America, but with some collaberation with Japan.
  • The show airs on Cartoon Network in most areas; most characters from actual western cartoons will be from Cartoon Network, and references involving western animation will allude to Cartoon Network cartoons.
    • Some spoken references may be altered depending on the area, although visual references and cameos will remain.
    • One of the recurring Cartoon Network-based gags is Erica laughing in the same pattern as Mandark when being mischievous. She also tends to use the word "yo" in a manner similar to Irwin.
  • Unlike the anime, the voices of Tesla, Veronica, and Spark remain the same in the British version of the show.
  • Other fan characters created by YoungOtakuNerd appear in the series, but are not counted as major characters.
  • Both the main protagonists and antagonists seem to invoke a "Reverse Smurfette Principle"; whereas the Smurfette Principle refers to a team or cast consisting mostly of male characters with few females, both the sides of good and evil in this series consists of mostly female teams, with Ichigo (a protagonist), Gogo (an antagonist), and Sheldon (another antagonist) as the "token guys" (not including minor male characters).
