  • At the end of the episode when Genma finally "defeats" his son with The Cradle from Hell attack, Kasumi remarks "This is what you call "mortal combat," isn't it?" Probably a reference to the 1992 video game Mortal Kombat, however in the english version Kasumi says "a fight to the death" not "mortal combat".
