  • The final blow in the Flaming Gloves' four-hit combo may be a reference to Capcom's flagship title Street Fighter. The move is very similar to Ryu and Ken's "Shoryuken" or "Dragon Uppercut", which has the player perform a rising uppercut with the fist surrounded by flame. Capcom is known to have included this move in some form in virtually all of its titles to date.
  • The combo card for this weapon does not mention that it has a secondary attack.
  • The Dead Rising 2 Prima Official Game Guide states: "4 swing attacks and 2 heavy, swing attacks. A good way to knock zombies away while setting them on fire. Block attacks in ranged mode." However, the weapon only has one heavy attack, not two.
