|Chip McGhoo||KISS performing at KISS World means not selling merchandise at a concert.|
|Chikara||She acts similar to the Crimson Witch, and knows everything about her.|
|Shandi Strutter||As a special effects expert she could easily make a stunt like this.|
|Delilah Domino as the Crimson Witch|| There may be two witches; the real one who wanted to use the Rock of KISSteria as a key to unlocking the Destroyer.|
To the fake one (Delilah) it was a priceless diamond (and this was after the Destroyer had been defeated).

The following credits will be how they are shown on-screen.
- The "Foul Play in Funland" case, as Fred calls it, involved the runaway robot, Charlie, which occured in the Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! episode Foul Play in Funland.
- The Roller Ghoster case happened in the What's New, Scooby-Doo? episode Roller Ghoster Ride.
- The trailer uses Anarbor's cover of "What's New, Scooby-Doo?" and KISS' "Shout It Out Loud".
- The world premiere was held at San Diego Comic-Con International 2015 on July 9, followed by a panel which consisted of Matthew Lillard, Grey Griffin, Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Eric Singer, Tommy Thayer, Jason Mewes, Pauley Perrette, Kevin Shinick, Spike Brandt, and Tony Cervone, moderated by Kevin Smith.
- KISS previously appeared in the What's New, Scooby-Doo? episode A Scooby-Doo Halloween, which was also on Halloween.
- Only Paul Stanley portrayed himself.
- The plot is loosely inspired by the live-action 1978 movie, Kiss Meets the Phantom of the Park.
- It's possible elements of the film are also inspired by the comic series Kiss: Psycho Circus.
- While not explicit, it's heavily implied that Fred's wardrobe was inspired by what the Ascot Five wear; the lead is also blonde and his ascot is orange.
- Starchild calling Fred "Frank" could very well be a reference to the latter's voice actor, Frank Welker.
- The floating ghost presented in the special effects room is very similar to the Phantom from the Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! episode Hassle in the Castle.
- This is one of the few Scooby-Doo direct to video movies to use the "Castle Thunder" sound effect (as heard in many pre-1990s Scooby-Doo productions), heard at the very beginning when lightning flashes over KISS World.
- This would appear to be the last direct-to-video film to have Mindy Cohn as the voice of Velma.
- Disguises: None. Although, when the gang first appear all but one of them are in KISS make-up as they thought they were going undercover.
- Recurring gags: Whenever KISS use confetti bombs to disappear, Chip McGhoo cleans it up, while complaining about them being expensive; Shaggy and Scooby keep on hiding in a locker.
- The film is loaded with KISS Easter eggs:
- Multiple names in the film are inspired by KISS songs and albums:
- Beth and Christine are named after Beth and Christine Sixteen, respectively.
- The first and last name of Shandi Strutter are named after songs.
- Dynasty Star Ferris Wheel is named after the album Dynasty.
- Spaceman mentions their album Love Gun going platinum.
- Multiple names in the film are inspired by KISS songs and albums:
- The maintenance workers are modeled after their voice actors Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes.
- The Ascot Five is a spoof on both the Jackson 5 and the Osmonds.
- The costume transformations of KISS is based on the anime Sailor Moon.
- The Destroyer is named after the album Destroyer, while the physical resemblance is somewhat a mixture of DC Comics' Darkseid (face) and Marvel Comics' Galactus (armor).
- The Elder is named after the album The Elder.
Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches
- None known.
Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities
- The Ascot Five's signature song, "Don't Touch My Ascot", is called "You Can't Have My Ascot" on the album cover.
- While not outright contradicting their previous appearance in A Scooby-Doo Halloween, it does cause hard to miss conflicts.
- The real-world identities and realistic designs (i.e. Paul Stanley (Starchild)'s hairy chest) in the episode are dropped in favour of highlighting the alter egos of KISS; they're reinvented as glam rock superheroes from an alternate dimension, and they only go by their nicknames. It's ever so slightly possible that the film just expands on what wasn't known in the episode.
- Daphne has a major crush on Starchild, but doesn't give any opinion whatsoever in the episode.
- Shaggy (and to a lesser extent Scooby) is a big KISS fan in the episode, but doesn't seem to care either way in this film.
- Considering that most things are still similar to the real-world, it's incredibly hard to believe that none of the gang wouldn't have pointed out that virtually all of the people in the film share names with KISS' songs, etc.
