- Art Imitates Art/Expy: The art style of Transistor takes a lot of visual cues from the work of Austrian symbolist painter Gustav Klimt (1862 1918). The character Red may in fact be a reference to "Red Hilda", a model who has appeared in so many of Klimt's works that the choice to use her image as the protagonist would be very fitting.
- Fan Nickname: Since the man inside the Transistor is never named at any point in the game, numerous Fan Nicknames have popped up for him.
- Blue, to match the Theme Naming of Red.
- Breach(), after the function() he's the trace of.
- Boxer, since the game's source code refers to him as this.
- Mr. Nobody, since he refers to himself as this in the game.
- Auden, since the game's source code also refers to him as this.
- What Could Have Been: In early gameplay footage, Red was hunted by five assassins. In the final product, this was reduced to four.
