  • One cover depicts Yaiba, dressed as a ninja, referencing the Tale of Galant Jiraiya (And not Naruto as some people may assume; Yaiba is several years older).
  • Dry Dry/ Supergorilla's costume and powers are a blatant homage to Superman, to the point that he dons a completely different outfit in the anime.
  • The whole seven orbs of the Dragon God thing is one to Dragon Ball.
  • While trying to open the secret door leading to the Golden Orb, they try out several magical spells. Sayaka says "Alohomora.

    Goemon:" You Moron!! Do I look like three beautiful girls to you!?"
