* No other Pokémon has the same [[type]] [[List of Pokémon with unique type combinations|combination]] as Magcargo.
* Despite the fact Magcargo's shell crumbles easily, in the anime, it has been depicted retracting into its shell and protecting itself from damage.
* Magcargo's body is over 18,000 degrees Fahrenheit (whichsignificantly isgreater almostthan double the temperaturethat of the surface of Earth'sthe Sun, about 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit), which should be hot enough to carbonize flesh. However, it has made contact with Pokémon many times in the anime and none of them felt any burning from its body. This trait is shared with {{p|Ponyta}}, {{p|Rapidash}}, and its own pre-evolution, {{p|Slugma}}.
* Despite the fact that water is vaporized on contact with Magcargo, it is doubly weak to {{type|Water}} attacks.
*Magcargo has its sprite changed in [[Crystal]] from [[Gold and Silver]], in this case, its shell is edited slightly, making it one of few Pokémon to have three different sprites in Generation II.
