  • Demand Overload: According to Electronic Gaming Monthly's October 1994 issue, only 3,000 copies of the video game were made originally, as it was a lottery prize. Nissin received so many entries that it became a full retail release.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Yakisoban's VHS movie is long out of print, and the manga was only serialized in CoroCoro and never collected in volumes. Merchandise is also scarce, especially the top-tier lottery prizes and plushies.
  • The Merch: Tons of merchandise and tie-in products for the ads were made, including toys, tents, keychains, costumes, sleeping bags, stickers, a video game, a direct-to-VHS movie, a single on CD, a tie-in manga, and a themed attraction at Japan's Yomiuriland.
