  • Douglas sympathizes with Chase again, and decides to give him an upgrade, similar to the episode Avalanche. This time however, he helps Chase for real.
  • The title of the episode refers to the conflict between Chase and Adam, and between Donald and Douglas.
  • Douglas stated that he's saving up for a car, meaning he no longer has any of the money he stole from Donald in No Going Back. It's likely Victor Krane stole it from Douglas after Sink or Swim.
  • This is the very first episode where Adam, Bree, and Chase unlock new abilities in the same episode.
  • This is the second time Adam, Bree and Chase unlock new abilities, the first being Bionic Showdown.
  • Chase unlocks the Laser Bo ability in this episode.
  • Bree unlocks invisibility in this episode.
  • Adam unlocks his super breath in this episode.
  • Bree resigns from Tech Town.
  • The Electric Field Destabilizer from Exoskeleton vs. Grandma is used again.

Cultural References

  • Leo saying "Ring me up, Scotty" is a reference to Star Trek.
  • Chase's Laser Bo is similar to lightsabers in Star Wars.


  • Douglas claimed that Chase cannot unlock all his abilities, because he can explode. However, that did not happen when Sebastian unlocked all his abilities in Bionic Rebellion, meaning Douglas might have exaggerated the results to Chase.
  • It is said that Douglas gave Adam a new ability called Pressurized Lung Capacity, in order to make it even between him and Chase. However, we see Adam use the same ability in Armed and Dangerous. However, this could be due to the fact they filmed Brother Battle before Armed and Dangerous, though Scott knew about their bionic powers, and Armed and Dangerous takes place right after You Posted What?!?
  • When Bree is swiping Leo's purchase card to buy the batteries, the magnetic code strip is not passing through the scanner, which would invalidate the purchase.
