* Minun has never appeared in the anime without a Plusle alongside it, unlike Plusle who has appeared alone a few times as [[Solana]]'s [[Partner Pokémon]].
* Minun's first major appearance in the anime was in episode 312, the same number as its position in the National Pokédex.
* Unused text in {{g|Colosseum}} suggests that a {{pkmn2|Shadow}} Minun was going to appear in the game.
* In [[Super Smash Bros. Brawl]], there are several files for {{sbw|Unused content (SSBB)#Characters|unused playable characters}}. One of these files is named "Pra_Mai", leading some players to speculate that Plusle and Minun were considered to appear as a tag team, like {{sbw|Ice Climbers (SSBB)|Ice Climbers}}.
