** Additionally, his Noble Phantasm is "Amakakeru Ryū ga Gotoku" (Like a Soaring Dragon), which is very similar to the Japanese title of the ''VideoGame/Yakuza'' games, "Ryū ga Gotoku" (Like a Dragon) . Cementing this was the ''Ryū ga Gotoku Ishin!'' (Restoration!) NoImportForYou game where the cast portrayed different members of UsefulNotes/TheShinsengumi and the main character was Ryoma himself.

One of the possible answers dialogue choices the protagonist could take during Hokusai's Trial Events make when O'ui suddenly changed changes costume and revealing reveals her surprisingly buxom body is "Nice [[Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail tracts of l--]]"l--]]"
** The English localization makes the ''Literature/TheCallOfCthulhu'' references more blatant as Hokusai outright mutters "...Ph'nglui...Ph'nglui", the first part of the famous occult phrase.

This is a very time-sensitive reference to ''Tidying Up with Marie Kondo'' and similar creators when they were popular in 2019.
