Tai is the fourth combatant to get a professional voice actor from Funimation. The first three being Iron Man (voiced by Chuck Huber), Solid Snake (voiced by Christopher Sabat) and Tifa Lockhart (voiced by Tia Ballard) followed by Bayonetta (voiced by Marissa Lenti).
However, because Pokémon VS Digimon mainly focused on the fight between Charizard and Agumon, this would make Tai the third assistant on DEATH BATTLE! to be voiced by a professional voice actor from Funimation. The first two being Otacon (voiced by Brad Venable), and Anna Grim (voiced by Whitney Rodgers).
Tai is the first assistant combatant to have physically assaulted another combatant and the second one to have intervene in a Death Battle. The first one was technically Otacon, but he didn't physically confront Anna Grim, instead shut down her systems and brought down the Paladin with her inside it.
Tai and his Agumon are the final combatants to win in DEATH BATTLE Season 2.
