See Category:Excalibur Guides to read user-made guides on how to play this Warframe.
- It costs less platinum to purchase the Warframe outright than to rush construction of the components and frame.
- He is the first of two Warframes with an unpolarized aura slot, Nekros being the second.
- Excalibur is similar in design to Hayden Tenno's suit from Digital Extremes' previous game Dark Sector. This is further reinforced with the Proto-Armor Skin, which is a near-exact copy of that very suit.
- Excalibur is named after the legendary sword of Arthur; King of the Britons. Many of his alternate helmets feature names based off Arthurian legend.
- An Excalibur is shown being ripped apart by Alad V while wearing the Pendragon Helmet and the Immortal Skin in "The Profit", a trailer for the PS4 release of WARFRAME.
- Prior to Update 14, Excalibur would use his equipped melee weapon when casting his abilities, regardless if it was impractical (Casting Radial Javelin with a Galatine), nonsensical (Slash Dashing with the Kogake) or impossible (Using any of his abilities without a melee weapon equipped). Update 14 changed this by making him generate an ethereal Skana when using his abilities, rather than using his melee weapon.
- If there was no melee weapon equipped, then Excalibur would use the active weapon. (i.e. Radial Javelin with a Braton). Humorously, ethereal copies of that weapon would appear upon using Radial Javelin.
- Before Hotfix 22.8.3, Excalibur parts blueprints dropped from Ambulas on Hades, Pluto. This is now the drop location of Trinity.
- According to the Official Tenno Alphabet Cipher, the design on Excalibur's right shoulder is in fact a word that spells out "Hayden Tenno". The same word can be found on top of Excalibur's head.
- Excalibur's default helmet was added to the real-time strategy game Airmech as a victory gesture after Warframe beating Airmech in a vote of popularity between the two.
- This was originally intended to be Excalibur Prime's default helmet however the reason for this change is unknown.
- Excalibur's default helmet (along with the default helmets of Loki and Chroma) are available as unlockable antenna toppers in Rocket League.
- Excalibur is the only frame that has 10 alternate helmets (with one being exclusive).
