    • Played with in this case; Qiao Shiyu one of the two voice actors cast in both the donghua and the radio drama, playing Wen Qing in the former and Jiang Yanli in the latter. The other is Wang Chenguang, who plays Lan Jingyi in the donghua and Su She in the audio drama.

  • What Could Have Been:
    • According to the author, Wen Ning was supposed to die (permanently) after the Second Siege arc, and Jin Ling was to die next and, following Wen Ning's footsteps, be resurrected into a fierce corpse to help fight the Big Bad. However, she didn't go through with it as she felt that there wasn't enough foreshadowing to justify those moments, and that it may come across as angst written purely for shock value.
    • Nie Huaisang was originally written with a romantic (male) partner in mind, although the idea was scrapped in the final version.
