- Wrestler is the second Copy Ability to debut in a spin-off in the Kirby series; the first was Balloon.
- Wrestler borrows many traits from Fighter and Suplex, and can be considered a fusion of the two, utilizing hand-to-hand combat maneuvers and grappling.
- In Kirby Battle Royale, Fighter has a Wrestling Mask Headgear that resembles the appearance of Wrestler.
- As Suplex is also a wrestling-based Copy Ability, Wrestler has various moves that are borrowed from or variants of Suplex's moves: Wrestler Pinpoint Kick, Wrestler Fury Stomp, Tackle Grab, Blazing Back Breaker, Air Suplex, and Rolling Breaker are all versions of Pinpoint Kick, Fury Stomp, Turbo Dash Grab, Back Breaker, Big Suplex, and Rock Drop respectively.
- Wrestler appears to be specifically based on Incineroar's appearance in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate: Chop, Headbutt, Meteor Plancha, Blazing Backbreaker, Air Suplex, and Giant Swing all greatly resemble Incineroar's neutral attack, up tilt, up special, up throw, back throw, and forward throw respectively. Many of Wrestler's moves also have flame effects.
- One of Wrestler's Rare Hats, the Roaring Mask, further supports this, as it is based on a lion, a common counterpart to the tiger, which Incineroar is based on.
- Wrestler's pose in official artwork seems to be based on Kirby's pose in the character select screen for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, with one hand and one foot raised up and the features aligning almost perfectly, with the exception of the mask and the angry frown.
