The voice originally thought to be the dragon is in fact the samurai Kin'emon, but the actual voice actor sounds dramatically different later in the episode.
One of the scenes of the dragon blasting fire in this episode was used twice but mirrored.
The FUNimation subtitles originally called Zoro's final attack on the dragon simply One Sword Style. The actual technique was called Ittoryu Iai. Iai is a special technique where the fighter swiftly draws their sword, strikes, then quickly resheaths the blade..
