  • Despite first appearing in Super Punch-Out!! for the arcade, Soda Popinski is grouped with the boxers that debuted in the NES installment. This is likely because he was named “Vodka Drunkenski” in the arcade.
  • Disco Kid and Aran Ryan are the only boxers from the Wii Punch-Out!! game to not have a spirit in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
  • Likewise, Mike Tyson and Mr. Dream are the only boxers from the NES Punch-Out!! to not have a spirit in Ultimate, likely because they did not appear in the Wii Punch-Out!!, which is where the spirit artwork is taken from, as well as that Nintendo’s license to use Mike Tyson’s likeness expired.
  • All of the Punch-Out!! non-Fighter spirits are fought as Stamina Battles on Boxing Ring.
  • Don Flamenco‘s Spirit Battle is the only Punch-Out!! Spirit Battle to not play Punch-Out!! music during it.
  • Punch-Out!! is one of the four universes with playable characters not to have any female spirits, the other three being Yoshi, Game & Watch and Final Fantasy.
