  • The rock star has a tattoo of Diskun, the mascot of the Family Computer Disk System, on their right arm.
  • If the player chooses that they are left-handed, the rock star becomes a woman rather than a man.
  • In the Japanese version, the word on the meter says "Max" and the drum has the word "Gig" on it. International versions changed the word on the meter to "Rock" and the picture on the drum to a jack-o-lantern's face.
