  • Hayden is the only character unlocked through the Creature Campaign not confirmed to have died at some point along the game's main story paths. As the only hints to his demise are within character endings during the credits, it is possible Hayden did indeed survive the course of the game, much in a similar fashion to Eliwood in The Binding Blade.
  • Hayden finished in last place of the 774 characters from across the Fire Emblem series featured in the fourth Choose Your Legends poll for Fire Emblem Heroes, with a total of 11 votes; he is tied for this placing with Halcyon and Dalvin.
