* The Japanese name of this move literally means "to paint a dragon and dot its eyes" and serves as a metaphor for the finishing touchestouch in a piece of work that give it "the spark of life". The idiom originated from a legend where {{wp|Zhang Sengyou}}, a Chinese painter, completes the dragons on thea mural by dotting their eyes and thus literally bringing them to life; they spring out of the temple wall and fly off. The completed dragons immediately ascended to the heavens after the work was done.
* Dragon Ascent is the only move with the word "dragon" in its English name that is not {{type|Dragon}}.
