- Other than Monkey Vs. Monkey, it is impossible to have a tile with Zebra Bloons as the highest-ranked Bloon in the browser Version.
- For Heavy Bloon Armor and above, the animations in the lab probably are testing the abilities of the Bloons, as the lead Bloon getting hit by seeking darts is probably to test the strength of the lead layer.
- When the player's highest bloon is an M.O.A.B, the MOAB is struck by lightning.
- It displays the wrong number of ceramic bloons, in this case 7.
