  • Breakup Breakout:
    • When the Sailor Boys broke up, Taiji Ishimori went to become one of the premier cruiserweights in Japan in Pro Wrestling NOAH, while the Satos became an indy attraction. It was not immediately apparent, as the twins had still good matches and success as part of STONED, but when they became the Brahman Brothers it became clear they weren't going anywhere up.
    • Shogo Takagi and Murciélago from the Los Carros Exóticos stable were a zig-zagged kind. The former managed to stuck with the Toryumon system and land in Dragon Gate while the latter remained in the indies, but Takagi ended up doing nothing notable in DG and was fired along with Aagan Iisou, while Murciélago became Flash Moon and was a mainstay sensation in Osaka Pro Wrestling for many years. Much straighter with the other two members, Lambo Miura and GALLARDO, as they never even made it out of Toryumon X. GALLARDO in particular had a career that lasted under a dozen matches.

  • The Other Darrin: Subverted. Jun Ogawauchi was strongly believed by many to be the first incarnation of Orochi in Osaka Pro Wrestling, as they had the same finisher and body size, but it was revealed to be MIWAYAKI.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • SUWA applied to the entrance test of Fighting Network RINGS before Toryumon, but he did not pass.
    • Akihito Sawafuji's gimmick was originally going to be a Backyard Wrestling character named "Chi*Polio Shaburyano", an original idea of Último Dragón himself, but Sawafuji refused, and thus he received the character of Milano Collection A.T.
    • Kanji Ichikawa went to Último Dragón thinking on playing a strong-style wrestler in simple black tights, as he has an amateur wrestling background and it would be natural to him. However, Último didn't like it and demanded him to choose a more colourful gimmick, so he chose Stalker Ichikawa.

    • Back when all its members took ring names in all caps as per the heel custom, Don Fujii's name was going to be "SUMO", as his former name was Sumo Fujii. However, as he thought it sounded silly, he kept that name and decided to change it every year.
