  • "The Void Phoenix" is the only badge with an icon to not follow the style of the rest of the badges.
    • This is due to it being the first badge to be added to the game, and the developers may not have been considering the style of it.
  • The badge "A Rose for The Rose" is a reference to Rosemi Lovelock a VTuber from NIJISANJI EN's group OBSIDYIA.
  • The Game owner, Billie has held competitions for those who complete hard badges first, like the Diamond Dark Badge.
