  • The Aerospray PG, along with its alternates, the Aerospray MG and Aerospray RG, are the only weapons that have a 5-hit K.O.
  • The "PG" in this weapon's name likely stands for "Perfect Grade" in reference to Bandai's line of 1:60 scale model kits for the anime Mobile Suit Gundam.
    • This is because it is common for model kits to be painted with an airbrush and because Gundam models are extremely popular in Japan.
