  • In Bookworm Adventures, you have 18 treasures (considering upgraded treasures as one unit). In the sequel, you have fewer treasures; 13, to be exact. This is due to the addition of Companions.
  • Even though you cannot have the treasures from the first game in the second one (apart from the Magic Pen), you can still see some of them on the Hall of Fame in the main menu.
  • The Magic Pen is the only treasure that appeared in both games; however, its effects are different. In the first game, it gives a chance to stun, while in the sequel, words based on word terms (such as "verb", "adjective" and "simile") will become bonus words.
    • It is also the treasure with the shortest upgrade time (in the sequel), receiving an upgrade literally in the next chapter.
