- In one of this weapon's hit messages, "Isn't it just too damn real, one white duck on a string?" paraphrases a line from the song "One White Duck" by Jethro Tull.
- In one of this weapon's hit messages, "Ho! Ha-ha! Guard! Turn! Parry! Dodge! Spin! Ha! Thrust!" is used extensively in Warner Brothers cartoons by Daffy Duck when fighting with any sort of melee weapon.
- Another hit message reads "You do some fancy flailwork with your duck-on-a-string. Ho! Ha-ha! Guard! Turn! Parry! Dodge! Spin! Ha! Thrust!" which is a reference to Warner Bros. Robin Hood Daffy
- The "head-bonking" is possibly a reference to the Discworld book Carpe Jugulum, in which the Queen of Lancre attacks a vampire with a "push-and-go wooden duck."
