  • Mumba is the most commonly unlocked character, and before the Bombs Away update, Digby was the least. After Bombs Away, the title belonged to BOSS. As of Axe to Grind, the title belongs to Axel.
  • The United States phone number on BOSS' poster does not work. Numbers with the central office code "555" are often unassigned, as the numbers "555-0100" and "555-0199" are reserved for use in fictional media to prevent unwanted call behavior and many mistakenly believe that all station codes following 555 are used for this purpose. However, the area code "419" implies that BOSS was imprisoned in northwestern Ohio. The judges must have really had it out for her.
