- Ascended Fanon: When Punishing's story was fan translated, the name of the villain group was usually rendered as "the Ascendants", a Woolseyism for "升格者" (lit. "upgraded/promoted/ascended one"), which Kuro Game would put down as "Promoter". When the global version arrived, Kuro Game decided to adopt "Ascendant" as the official term.
- Late Export for You: Released in China in 2019, in Japan and Taiwan in 2020 and globally in 2021. That means the Global version is also two years late in terms of playable characters and story content.
- The Other Darrin: In 2021, Liv's first voice actor, Ai Kayano, fell afoul of China's internet community when she visited one of Japan's shrines that commemorated its World War II soldiers. Kuro Game decided to remove Liv's old lines voiced by Kayano and have Miku Itou take over as VA, coincedentally in time for the character's newest playable class at the time.
