* [[Ash's Pikachu]] fought [[Blaine]]'s Rhydon in the [[Anime physics|anime and defeated it]], despite it being a {{type|Ground}} immune to {{t|Electric}} attacks. Rhydon's horn also serves as a {{a|Lightning Rod|lightning rod}} which negates electric attacks as of the rules for the Pokémon effect. Since then, that battle has been brought up frequently in comparisons between the games and anime and has spawned the popular (albeit misquoted) Pokémon Internet meme, "Pikachu! Aim for the horn!"
* Since Rhydon's [[index number]] is 001 [[list of Pokémon by index number (Generation I)|in Generation I]], a [[glitch Pokémon]] with an index number of 000 or that is greater than 152 will [[Rhydon glitch|revert to Rhydon]] when its Pokédex entry is viewed.
* Rhydon and its {{p|Rhyperior|evolution}}evolved form share their {{pkmn|category}} name with {{p|Nidoqueen}} and {{p|Nidoking}}. They are all known as the Drill Pokémon.
