- The item's tooltip, "The forbidden calamari", is likely a reference to a common internet meme, where some form of object similar to a food, which in reality isn't edible, is nicknamed "Forbidden <food>", for example sea glass being referred to as "forbidden fruit snacks". Calamari is fried squid, referring to the Moon Lord's cephalopod appearance.
- This pet bears a resemblance to Cyrax, an alien boss from the 2001 video game Insaniquarium.
- This pet itself marginally resembles the Ancient Vision, an enemy summoned by the Lunatic Cultist if the player attacks a duplicate of the Lunatic Cultist while the Phantasm Dragon is still alive.
- The buff tooltip, "A friend from beyond", is a reference to H.P. Lovecraft's short story "From Beyond", which is a story of a man who witnesses alien creatures in alternate dimensions. The Moon Lord, which the Piece of Moon Squid drops from, also happens to be a reference to H.P. Lovecraft – this time, the cosmic entity Cthulhu, a fictional character Lovecraft created.
