- The title of the episode comes from Douglas Adams's So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish, one of the books in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series.
- This is the 42nd episode of YGOTAS. 42 is a number featured in the Hitchhiker series as "The Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything".
- The bottom line in LittleKuriboh's episode description reads 'Bring back Team Four Star' backwards.
- The flying cards in the opening include:
- "Arthur's Theme" by Christopher Cross plays when Veronica Ishtar dies.
- This explains why the song reminds Odion of her in "Chenquieh!".
- Marik's initiation procedure includes being forced to watch Beverly Hills Chihuahua.
- Mega-Ultra Chicken's lines are a reference to dialogue from the Disney adaptation of Aladdin: "Infidels! You have touched the forbidden treasure! Now you'll never again see the light of day!"
- "Brain Damage" by Pink Floyd plays when Odion is struck by lightning.
- As explicitly noted in the episode, Marik's line "I am Kira" is a reference to Death Note.
- At Marik's transformation to Melvin, Bear McCreary's adaptation of "All Along the Watchtower" plays, a reference to the series Battlestar Galactica.
- When Kaiba smiles for the second time in this episode, the caption reads "+9001 dead puppies". This is a reference to the "It's Over 9000" meme.
- The stinger is a sound clip from Clerks:The Animated Series with a Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's scene.
