  • The name "ant agonist" is a pun on both the terms "agonist" and "antagonist". In biology, an agonist is a substance that mimics or increases the effect of another substance. Thus, an ant agonist makes ants more powerful, or alternately, makes the player more like a fire ant. An antagonist is (in biochemistry) a chemical or (in literature) a character that creates conflict or opposition. This potion makes you antagonistic.
  • The reference to the potion causing agony is a pun on "agonist".
