  • FootboxG acted as a replacement for Jp.svg Show-Go (6th GBB 2021 Wildcard Winner).[8]
  • DEN acted as a replacement for Fr.svg Wawad (2nd GBB 2020 Wildcard Winner).[9]
  • Heartzel was given the opportunity to replace Helium due to uncertainty of the latter being able to leave Russia the week of the event. However, Helium was ultimately able to make it; Swissbeatbox decided to honor Heartzel's participation.[10]
  • Due to requests from Vocodah and D-Koy, they are both listed as "Artist" in the official battle videos.

  • Reeps One voted OT in King Inertia vs. Helium. It is worth noting that OT votes were deemed illegal in this event, technically making his vote invalid and resulting in an official score of 3-1.
  • D-low confirmed in an analysis video that the Final score was 4-1. He voted for Colaps.[16]
