Just noticed... Hitoshi Kanno in SASUKE 24, 25, and 26 failed at the EXACT SAME SPOT as Shingo Yamamoto did in the exact same tourneys! 24: time out before the rope ladder 25: balance tank 26: rolling escargot.
It should also be noted that Kanno injured himself on the spin bridge in 27 and Shingo FAILED that obstacle
Only men to attempt and defeat the Double Salmon Ladder in all 3 tournaments it was in (25-27): Hashimoto Kouji and Okuyama Yoshiyuki. Only man to fail all three versions of the Salmon Ladder: Takeda Toshihiro (think it might have already been mentioned somewhere)

I also find it ironic that Takeda in SASUKE 25. He was more worried about the first obstacle in stage 2 and he mentioned something along the lines of, No one's failed the 2nd obstacle right? Well guess where he failed... XD

Also remember when I said I think it's also the same tourney that Nagano said that you couldn't do the jumping spider with just one leg? Well I was wrong. That was a tournament before AKA SASUKE 20. I had to check that out myself and yeah I was a bit wrong.

Making a couple more of these for one post. 1. The Circle Slider is the only obstacle to be in only 2 competitions and the competitions were not in succession (it was in Sasuke 17 and 25)
2. Each stage has had an obstacle that lasted a long time and had more than one version. Stage one has the Jump Hang which had 2 different versions it had the normal net version and the Sasuke 13 rope version. Stage 2 has the Balance Tank which had the first version that was just a log and the 24-27 version with a log and a rope. Stage 3 has a lot of obstacles, but the most noticeable was the Pipe Slider it had its first version from Sasuke 2 and 3 that was just sliding a pipe. The Sasuke 4-13 version which was just sliding a pipe and then the jump. The Sasuke 14-17 and 28-? version which was half the slide and I think a bigger jump.
3. This is a common but some people don't know it Yuuji Urushihara's first attempt on Sasuke was the 21st competition where he failed the Flying Chute when he couldn't reach the net. His first attempt at getting on Sasuke was the Monkey Bars event for Sasuke 11 (which Shinji Kobayashi won). It is crazy in my opinion that it took him 10 competitions to get on Sasuke.

I kinda feel sorry for Lee En-Chih since in SASUKE 25 AND 26 he makes it ALL THE WAY to the Ultimate Cliffhanger but in SASUKE 27 the exact opposite happens... fails the first obstacle due to his considerably long legs kicking the water... Shingo had that same problem during SASUKE 16 when he grabbed the ropes of the jump hang a bit too low and he ALSO kicks the water
The Wall obstacles in Stage 2 have almost always been marked 1, 2, and 3 in various ways. For SASUKE RISING, they were marked 壱, 弐, and 参. These are the "official" ways to write numerals in Japan (and China) - they use them on official documents because someone could just make 一 (one) a 十 (10) or a 三 (three) by adding another stroke or two. It's almost comparable to how the duration of an official document is always written with the number and spelled out (i.e. thirty (30) days) in the US.
The Half-Pipe Attack bore flame vinyls for SASUKE 19 but were removed for subsequent tournaments. Why it was removed is unknown.
The old Final Stage theme from 7-17 is Kenji Kowai's "Log In" from the Avalon OST. The lyrics are sung in Polish by a Japanese chorus.
A boxer in Sasuke 16 whose name I forgot was on the undercard of Canelo vs Lara (Lara *censored*ing won that sh*t dammit, but I digress...) and won.
I mean now it sounds like we're just going with random bits now, that's like talking about all the people in Sasuke who won olympic gold medals, or how the current NJPW IWGP Heavyweight Champion has competed on Sasuke twice. Seems like we're running out of notable facts tbh lol
Well I got one. How Shingo first heard of SASUKE... He thought it was a prank call at first! XD Also Nagano and stage 1. I believe SASUKE 16 was the only time he cleared the stage with LESS than 10 second left.
Sorry. SASUKE 20 and 27

Tatayama Masaaki holds the current record for longest gap between appearances, competing in Sasuke 29 for the first time since Sasuke 3. The runner up is a tie between Omori Akira and Iijima Toyohisa, who each had a 15 tournament break (Sasuke 7 to Sasuke 23 for the former, Sasuke 14 to Sasuke 30 for the latter).
