  • Despite the fact that in past generations, Bikers and Roughnecks (also known as Cue Balls) were known to hang out with each other on bike paths, this is the first time that they have battled together in a Double Battle.
  • In French, Hooligans have names similar to the Roughnecks, with the only difference being that one is plural.
