On July 28th, 2015, this battle was removed from YouTube due to its "violation of YouTube's policy on repetitive, misleading, or inappropriate metadata". It has since been restored.
On August 22, 2016, "Nighty nighty. Ah spaghetti. Ah, ravioli. Ahh, mama mia." was written in the description of the video. This is a reference to Super Mario 64, these lines being said by Mario when he would fall asleep after being idle for too long.
During the battle, Wilbur Wright keeps his shirt on for the Wright Brothers' first verse, but at 0:40, during the Mario Brothers' first verse, his shirt is off, and it reappears in the scene after. Although it is removed at the beginning of the Wrights' second verse, Wilbur is shown with his shirt on again at 1:13, and then he is shown shirtless during the end of the battle.
In the subtitles for Mario and Luigi's second verse, "Bob-omb" is misspelled as "ba-bomb".
During the battle's end slate, the word "subscribe" is misspelled as "subcribe".
