Trivia:
--The Hazards-Off formation has a pair of platforms that leave early in the match & don't return, so it's still metamorphic that way.
--The first stage to include music that was not arranged by a Japanese musician....followed immediately by "Megalovania", which shares that distinction.
--Splat Roller ink rotates with the stage, but the terrain effect locks in place relative to the camera.
--Cannot be summoned: Jeff, Ashley, Riki, Dr. Wright, Vince, Yuri, Arcade Bunny, Shadow, & Marshadow.

I found out that even the Omega version of this stage is tourney-banned because "some players find the moving background distracting." Freaking infants.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"
