- Prior to the premiere of the episode, fans of Teen Titans Go! were asked to speculate what the so-called Opposite Titans would look like. Many fans drew various artworks of their own ideas for Opposite Titans, while other fans used an app on the Cartoon Network site to build their own Opposite Titan Team using ready-made illustrations. Among those illustrations were the actual Gender Opposite Titans from the episode.
- Although Madame Rouge has previously appeared in the comics based off the show, this episode marks her first appearance in an episode of the series, with Hynden Walch reprising her role from the original series.
- It is revealed that the Titans have genderbent counterparts.
- This episode has a similar title to a Season 2 episode "Beast Man".
- This is the first episode to premiere in 2018.
- This episode premiered on President's Day.
- This episode reunited Cree Summer and Tara Strong. Both actors worked together on Rugrats and its spin-off All Grown Up! as Summer voiced Susie Carmichael and Strong voiced Dil Pickles. Also, they were both on Drawn Together as Summer voiced Foxxy Love and Strong voiced Princess Clara and Toot Braunstein.
- Various Russian stereotypes are associated to Madame Rouge in this episode. She plans to replace all pizza with pierogis and borscht, her hideout appears to be modeled after Saint Basil's Cathedral in Moscow, and she traps the Titans inside of Russian nesting dolls.
- Where the Gender Opposite Titans came from is still a mystery. But it can be speculated that they may have come through a mirror since Beast Girl mentions that she was looking at one before bumping into the other Titans.
- This episode premiered in a block of other Teen Titans Go! episodes that had different kinds of opposite Titans, such as "Robin Backwards" (Bizzaro Titans) and "Snuggle Time" (Super villain Titans).
- This episode was originally titled "Opposite Titans!"
- Some of the Opposite Gender Titans say catchphrases that sound similar to what the Titans normally say. Opposite Gender Raven casts spells by saying, "Mazarath Zetrion Tinthos", Opposite Gender Starfire said Zhama Lamma Shu-Mu, and Opposite Gender Cyborg yells "Yoobah" ("Booyah" with the letters switched around).
- The Titans are able to recognize Robin's distinct cries and whimpers of pain as they are beating him up (thinking he's Madame Rouge). Robin did actually cry and whimper exactly the same way in a previous episode, "Squash & Stretch", when the Titans were beating him up to see if inflicting violence was funny.
- On the pillars of Madame Rouge's hideout are images of KGBeast, a Russian nemesis of Batman.
- Swamp Thing and Aquaman can be seen on shampoo bottles in the cabinet that Beast Boy was hiding inside.
- Starfire's male counterpart resembles Harold and Sam from Total Drama who are both voiced by the same actor.
- This episode is similar to the Futurama episode, "Neutopia".
- The "Opposite Gender Titans" concept is taken from Rule 63 of the "Rules of the Internet", which states that every male character has a female counterpart, and vice-versa. Websites devoted to art of such opposite-gender characters exist.
- "Beast Girl" is an authentic indirect reference to the DC Multiverse, the alternative universe of characters from the DC Comics publishing house with an inverted genre, better known as Earth-11.
- One of the reasons Beast Girl thinks that she's Madame Rouge is that she likes pierogis. But moments earlier she had asked about who Madame Rouge even was, so it was not likely she would have known her eating habits.
- Beast Boy's true origin story was briefly explained in the episode.
- Beast Girl mentions that Madame Rouge is British, although she is Russian, although that may have simply been due to Beast Girl's intelligence being about on par with Beast Boy's.
- The scream at the end of the episode is Starfire’s scream, not Beast Girl’s as intended.
- Beast Boy and Beast Girl thinking one another or themselves as Madame Rouge.
- Beast Boy and Beast Girl annoying the crew with their rational surprise of their similarities.
- Beast Boy and Beast Girl’s poor English being overly exaggerated.
