- Name's the Same: You can be forgiven if you're thinking of another dragoness named Ember created years later when reading through the trope pages. For extra points, Tara Strong, her voice actress, also voices Twilight Sparkle.
- The Other Darrin: All of the previous cast have been replaced except for Andre Soqliuzzo as Sparx and Michael J. Gough as Gnasty Gnorc, and even they have completely different vocal takes this time around.
- Refitted for Sequel: Ember was originally intended to appear in Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly, but her planned appearance was cut as a result of the game being Christmas Rushed. She would later make her official debut in A Hero's Tail.
- Talking to Yourself: Jess Harnell voices a good deal of the main cast, and since Spyro is one of them, he does plenty of two way conversations.
