* ShoutOut: The band is really fond of them. They quote Music/TheBeatles in "Fly Again" ("life just comes and goes/[[Music/{{Revolver}} tomorrow never knows]]"), Literature/TheBible in "Emotions" ("you'd always [...] loved your neighbors as yourself"), and the video for "Distance" features an octahedron that looks quite suspiciously like Ramiel from ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' (the song itself seems to sample its scream, or at least features a sample that sounds quite similar, pointing out that it's probably an intentional nod).

Also, the video for "When my Devil Rises" features an animation of Manga/{{Devilman}} fighting demons (done as a collaboration with Creator/GoNagai, who contributed album art).

** Once the band was signed to a major label, they all got brand new masks. Just compare [[https://78.media.tumblr.com/bc14e9cdf0563ea2dbd4941ec53ed367/tumblr_mh30vvdGNs1qf0hgro1_1280.jpg this shot from 2012]] with [[https://78.media.tumblr.com/cb3af318f031c9272395577ce4824c2c/tumblr_n1ss3ebsWU1rqd2bjo1_1280.jpg this 2014 magazine cover]].

** This extends to when they perform live. Jean-Ken Johnny, Tokyo Tanaka, and Kamikaze Boy all don different masks that free their mouths so they can sing more easily, but their faces are painted pitch black. Japanese broadcasters go out of their way to avoid showing their faces during live performances, either opting for wide shots of the whole band slightly from behind, closeups of the top half of the wolf masks, bad lighting, or closeups of DJ Santa Monica and Spear Rib instead.

** Rumors abound in the Japanese blogosphere that the band is a reinvention of their previous band Grantz, comprising vocalist Tsuyoshi (Tokyo Tanaka), bassist Nishida (Kamikaze Boy), guitarist and vocalist Hiroshi (Jean-Ken Johnny), DJ Nakajima (DJ Santa Monica), and drummer Yumiza (Spear Rib). Grantz allegedly ceased activities in 2009 and MAN WITH A MISSION formed in 2010, and Yumiza's long abandoned [=MySpace=] page [[https://myspace.com/yumiza/music/song/rock-in-the-house-45717277-48880951 has a demo of Rock in the House]], a track eventually released on MAN WITH A MISSION's debut EP.

* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Spear Rib is pronounced as "spare rib" and is probably supposed to be written that way.

** During a TV interview hosted by Daisuke and Nao of Music/MaximumTheHormone with just Jean-Ken Johnny and DJ Santa Monica on set, DJ Santa Monica accidentally spoke on camera, leading the others to feign surprise and crack a couple jokes that they heard him speak.

During this same interview, Johnny complains he cannot speak English very well. All of his subtitles (and tweets) also substitute the katakana writing system where hiragana would be used instead.
