  • This is the only DLC cup with one retro track instead of two, and is the only cup in Mario Kart 8 to not have a gliding section in any of its tracks.
    • Additionally, it is also the only cup in the whole series to only have one retro course, not including cups from Mario Kart Tour.
  • The Yoshi Cup icon in Mario Kart Tour has a very similar appearance to this cup's icon. The Yoshi Egg in the icon is leaning to the left for that cup's icon, while it leans to the right for this cup's icon.
