* As fans of ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' (see below) enjoy creating Nobodies for themselves ([[SelfInsert and then writing them into fanfiction]]), this was parodied in ''ThoseLackingSpines.''

* In another Michael Crichton book, Literature/DigitalFortress, the main characters are in contact via e-mail with someone who they know only as his pseudonym "North Dakota". His e-mail adress user-part is N.DAKOTA. At first he seems to want to help them [[spoiler: but it turns out to be the main villain, whose name is Tankado]] [[note]]A bit awkward was that this character was Japanese-born, but Tankado would not be a Japanese name - they generally don't have two consonants in succession.[[/note]]

*** "Memento Mori, when the nineth lion ate the sun" = "The man on the moon rules the infinite time". [[spoiler:The man on the moon refers to Sigma, and infinite time refers to sending his unconscious back decades into the past. Memento Mori when the nineth lion ate the sun also acts in itself as the key for Sigma to pull the from login and password from other timelines when the ninth lion he's seen so far is eating a sun on the login screen. Phi also brings up the intentional typo in "nineth", where the extra "e" was needed to make the anagram work.]]
