- Heroes whose default item build includes Mekansm as a core item: Abaddon, Chen, Dark Seer, Disruptor, Io, Keeper of the Light, Lich, Lion, Meepo, Necrophos, Oracle, Phoenix, Razor, Silencer, Viper, Visage.
- Heroes whose default item build includes Mekansm as a situational item: Ancient Apparition, Dazzle, Death Prophet, Earth Spirit, Enigma, Huskar, Jakiro, Nature's Prophet, Ogre Magi, Omniknight, Pugna, Shadow Demon, Warlock, Windranger, Winter Wyvern.
- Mekansm is not an actual word in English, but rather a corruption of the word "mechanism", considering its description of how it is made of assorted parts that fit and work together, and its appearance.
- If the player drops items which provides a large amount of health (e.g. Vanguard or Eye of Skadi), then uses Mekansm, and then picks up the dropped items again, the player will overall heal for more than 250 health. This is because upon dropping the health granting items, the player's maximum health drops while the current health percentage stays the same, but Mekansm still heals for the full amount. After picking up the items again, its maximum health raises, and its current health percentage stays the same.
