- Sticking feathers in one's mouth is a reference to Jeff Noon's book, Vurt, in which the characters consume color-coded feathers in order to access a shared alternate reality.
- "For those about to use the roc feather" is a reference to the AC/DC album For Those About To Rock (We Salute You), itself a tribute to the Roman tradition of the salute given by gladiators in the arena to the emperor, about to fight each other to the death.
- The Charles S. Duttonhawk refers the the TV series Roc, which starred Charles S. Dutton as the title character. "Roc" was also the name Dutton used while an amateur boxer in his youth.
