Watermelon Waves is a Nearly Impossible episode. It has one somewhat hard level: 2511, seven very hard levels: 2513, 2519, 2520, 2522, 2523, 2524 and 2525, five extremely hard levels: 2512, 2514, 2515, 2517 and 2521, and one notorious nearly impossible level: 2518. Overall, it is still a nearly impossible episode even after several nerfs and downgrades. The current mean is 7.07 and is slightly harder than the previous episode. Before the nerfs and downgrades, this used to have a mean of 8.2 (including pre nerf 2521), making it the hardest episode in the game along with Popsicle Plateau.

- Upon released, candy order levels returned after their absence in the previous episode, Savory Springs. However, this is no longer true because one level in said episode was redesigned to be a candy order level.
- This is the second episode in a row without moves levels.
- Every level has 25 moves or less (even after redesigning), with 12 levels having less than 20 moves.
- The extra time booster was removed, possibly because of the continuous absence of timed levels in later episodes (and their eventual removal from the game).
- This episode ends the 97th Hell's Cluster (2506-2515), but it also starts the 98th Hell's Cluster (2517-2540).
- This is one of the episodes to have the name of a fruit in its title.
- This is the first episode to have several 6 color levels in a long time. The last episode to have a 6 color level is Blooming Backyard, but that episode only has 1, so the last episode to have several 6 color levels is Frosty Fields, with 2, which was 13 episodes ago.
- This episode's pathway is shaped like Gummy Galaxy's, but is red instead of hot pink. This breaks the trend of a hot pink pathway every 9 episodes starting from Treacle Retreat. The new trend continues until the end of Flash version.
