** [[spoiler: The CD version has Bobbin state that healing the body was actually easy, but it needed the soul being there, thanks to Mandible's tearing the pattern open in the first place. So, this only works in an actual doomsday scenario.]]

** Rusty Nailbender's actual first name is "Wellwrought". Given that he's apparently a lazy layabout and a bit of failure, it's not hard to see why he's better known by his nickname.

* CopyProtection: Early releases of the game would start off by showing a picture of a Guild along with a name of a Thread, then prompting the user to put in a sequence of four on-screen buttons that could only be found in the Book of Patterns that shipped with the game. If they put in the correct pattern, the game would proceed. Later releases (including some re-releases of the floppy version, unusually enough) omitted this.

''Loom'' is an epic fantasy {{adventure|Game}}, released by LucasArts in 1990, which tells of the Age of the Great Guilds, a time when the peoples of the game's world banded together to form city-states around their chosen profession. One of these guilds, the Guild of Weavers, eventually perfected their craft so that they could weave more than just fabric, and started weaving drafts into the very fabric of reality itself. Shunned by the other guilds as practitioners of witchcraft, the Guild of Weavers isolated themselves from the rest of the world onto an island of their own, naming it after the great Loom they held as the symbol of their guild.

** Several PC games after ''Loom'', made by LucasArts or not, included references both to it and to Brian Moriarity. Bishop Mandible's assistant, Cobb, even shows up in ''VideoGame/TheSecretOfMonkeyIsland'' as an NPC pimping off this game.

* BritishAccents: All characters have them in the voiced version. Most characters speak in Received Pronunciation, but the dragon and the Blacksmiths speak in Cockney, while the Shepherds speak in some generic Scottish accent.

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:Bobbin turns into a swan, and, together with the other weavers, is only able to save half the world after sacrificing the Loom. The BigBad, Chaos, claims the other half of the world, swearing to torment and ruin it so Bobbin will forever be tormented by thoughts of the half of humanity he abandoned. Oh, and Hetchel dies.]]
