- Steve and Eli from Trollhunters have "major roles" in the series, however, they are still credited as "other characters"..
- Since the series focuses on side characters from the first series, Toby and AAARRRGGHH!!! have "minor roles" in the series.
- Events coninciding with the end of Trollhunters most of the main cast makes a cameo at least once. Including Jim several times, both in and out of armor. All his old look.
- The first season takes place during Part Three of Trollhunters.
- One of the episodes features an entirely new story for the Trollhunters (which actually comes from a tie-in novel)
- Another shows the other side of the Trollhunters episode "In Good Hands" the siblings introductory episode in the meta-series. Literally called, "Lightning in a Bottle" it is a complete 180, demonstrating how odd the Trollhunters can seem without context.
